Why are we not being told this?
With far too many governments and political leaders pushing pure panic porn and hysteria about Covid, and far too many happy to gain ever more power and control by exploiting a crisis, we are seldom getting reliable information and actual truth. Too much of what we are getting is simply spin and misinformation.
Many governments pushing extreme lockdown measures, denying alternative medical treatments such as Ivermectin, and pushing a one-eyed view of things about this virus are too often in bed with Big Pharma and Big Media to suppress other points of view and to offer their narrative as the only ‘official’ version of events that should be heard.
But the truth is, there ARE other important points of view that must be considered, but are too often being attacked or censored. And I refer to alternative views held by medical and scientific experts. There are many authorities and experts in this field – including epidemiologists, virologists, and the like – who are world-class experts who have taken a differing view from the mainline narrative constantly being pushed.
They question for example our draconian lockdowns and their effectiveness; the amount of paranoia and fear being generated by so many leaders, ‘chief health officers’ and most of the media; and the efficacy of things like mask mandates and other restrictive measures.
Here in Australia we have quite a few of these experts and recognised authorities who have come together and formed the Covid Medical Network. As it says on their homepage: “We are a group of senior medical doctors and health professionals concerned about the health impacts of the lockdowns used in response to the SARS-CoV-2 outbreaks across Australia.” www.covidmedicalnetwork.com/
And they say this on their Declaration Statement released late last year:
The Victorian government’s response to the SARS-CoV-2 virus is now doing more harm than good. These measures will cause more deaths and result in far more negative health effects than the virus itself. Left unchecked, the Victorian government risks creating the state’s worst ever public health crisis.
Many Australian doctors and other health professionals consider the lockdown measures to be disproportionate, unscientific, excessively authoritarian and the cause of widespread suffering for many Victorians.
Thereby, we Australian Doctors and Health Professionals, in solidarity with thousands of international doctors, call for the cessation of all disproportionate measures that contravene the International Siracusa Principles.
These Siracusa Principles are part of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which Australia is a signatory, and are recommended by the World Health Organisation. They require all public health management policies to meet standards of legality, evidence-based necessity and proportionality, and that they recognise our basic, universal and non-derogable human rights.
Children and adolescents are suffering and being needlessly harmed by the denial of normal social interactions such as play, schooling and relationships with family and friends, particularly as the virus poses an almost negligible risk. These effects on child and adolescent health will impact their future wellbeing for many years to come.
The ambition for ‘viral elimination’ and the intent of achieving “zero cases for a period of time”, is both irrational and unachievable, according to the best local and international evidence. The latest evidence suggests that ‘lockdown measures’ in general have limited effectiveness in reducing the viral health impacts in the long term.

These experts have recently put out an Open Letter stating their case, and it is a must read. Let me here offer just some of it. All that follows between the two sets of asterisks is part of this very important Letter:
Open Letter To ALL Doctors and ALL Australians
A return to evidenced-based pandemic preparedness guidelines is now urgently sought.
‘Primum Non Nocere’ OR First Do No Harm
Wednesday 11th August 2021
Doctors, health professionals and millions of concerned Australians demand an immediate end to unprecedented, pervasive and coercive “States of Emergency” and the return to transparent and evidence-based pandemic preparedness and early-stage treatment.
We, your fellow doctors, write to you motivated only by our concern for the welfare of our patients and the health of our community.
Every doctor, like any individual, must answer to their own conscience. Doctors in particular must answer to an Oath, the swearing in of which has fallen away, yet not without leaving its spirit alive. This oath was, and is, founded upon ‘primum non nocere’ or ‘first do no harm’.
This letter is aimed at reminding all doctors of our ethical obligations and to furnish our consciences with information so that none can claim ‘I did not know’ or ‘I was wrongly advised’ or ‘I was just following orders’.
The people of Australia face unprecedented, pervasive and coercive ‘States of Emergency’ with severe restrictions to liberty and widespread impacts on health, life and livelihoods. ‘Flattening the curve’ for a few weeks has become eighteen months of fear, anxiety and control. Much of it unnecessarily contrived through sensationalist media, failed political leadership that has abdicated its responsibilities to academic and health bureaucrats who appear far removed from the realities and sufferings of ordinary Australians.
In early 2020, the Australian government, following the example of other countries, and the sudden about-turn of the World Health Organisation (WHO), abandoned long-established and existing pandemic guidelines in favour of enforced lockdowns, mask mandates, mass-testing, digital surveillance, border closures and the quarantining of the healthy. This approach was novel, untested and unprecedented.
We have had multiple on-again/off-again lockdowns, mask “mandates”, the coercion and mandating of novel and unproven vaccine technology, invasions to privacy in the forms of QR check-in codes and severe economic stress. In the reckless pursuit of the mirage of an unattainable ‘Covid Zero’ state, 400 AUSTRALIANS die every day from all causes. These Australians are dying within a grossly disrupted health care system and while their loved ones are inhumanely denied the opportunity to properly mourn them.
Whilst in 2021 to the 6th of August, we had twenty-two registered deaths attributed to Covid-19. The average age of death from Covid-19 remains 84 years, which is higher than average life expectancy in Australia.
This global public health experiment has clearly failed, having caused untold harm to literally billions of people. A return to long established, evidenced-based pandemic preparedness guidelines must now be urgently sought….
The collateral damage from lockdowns is clear; significant harm is being inflicted upon humanity, and devastating health and wellbeing across the globe. Vulnerable and disadvantaged communities, and especially children, are paying the highest price. Evidence suggests lockdowns have not reduced mortality from COVID-19, and they provide little benefit over less restrictive measures. In addition, there are grave concerns lockdowns may ultimately result in a longer and more lethal pandemic, with many unforeseen and unintended health consequences.
CASES AND PCR TESTS
Every medical student is taught that clinical diagnosis is founded upon three unshakable tenets. History, Examination, Investigation in that order of hierarchical importance. With the unprecedented utilisation of PCR based diagnosis in the interest of public health and mass screening the Doctor has been dangerously removed from the diagnostic process.
We now have a situation where an infection has been defined as a positive result on PCR. PCR has been demonstrated to be inadequate as a measure of illness severity and infectivity and so is not fit for purpose. Excessive Amplification Cycles of 37 – 45 have been used routinely, guaranteeing many possible clinically false positive results. We call upon doctors to inform themselves more fully and reject the flawed data and overly severe policies driven by forensic PCR technology.
SARS-CoV-2 is of course a real virus which has caused many deaths worldwide. How many deaths is difficult to calculate as ‘covid deaths’ have often been defined as ‘a death with a positive PCR Test’ rather than as a result of the recognised disease process and illness caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
However, we all know that multiple co-morbidities are involved 94% of the time (CDC: 94% of Covid-19 deaths had underlying medical conditions | WEYI (nbc25news.com ). Thus, it is more than likely the 3.8 million deaths are an overestimate. Overwhelmingly these deaths have been in the frail elderly and others with serious pre-existing illness, often in populations where the average age of death with/from covid exceeds that of the average life expectancy.
That said, estimates of the infectious fatality rate (IFR) cluster around 0.15-0.2% overall, which is similar to the IFR of influenza, and 0.05% for those <70 years. The risk to children is very low, less than for influenza, and the risk to adolescents and young adults is 4 orders of magnitude lower than the elderly and so do not justify any restrictions applied across the population. We endorse the recommendations embodied in the Great Barrington Declaration.
We call for doctors to restore a sense of proportion to the dialogue.
THE VACCINE TECHNOLOGIES
The issue of Covid Vaccines is a controversial and sensitive one. The Covid Medical Network is NOT ‘anti-vax’. We acknowledge vaccination may curb the pandemic and is aimed at reducing hospitalisation and death from SARS-CoV-2 virus. However, we believe, in the interests of transparency and for the sake of individual patient care, doctors should be aware of some important, yet lesser-known issues. We are concerned that many members of the public and some medical colleagues seem unaware of some basic facts concerning the current Covid vaccines.
Only provisional approval for 2 years has been granted by the TGA, for both available covid vaccines, as they are considered investigational. Similarly, in the USA, due to incomplete efficacy and safety data, the available gene-based (mRNA and DNA) vaccines have only been made available by the FDA under Emergency Use Authorisation legislation. The TGA Deputy Secretary, Professor John Skerritt, and Minister for Health Greg Hunt have both made public statements that this vaccine rollout is a clinical trial (effectively an experiment) that will conclude in 2022.
Both available vaccines in Australia are totally new gene-based, nucleic acid (mRNA and DNA) vaccines and viral vector vaccines.
The mRNA vaccine technology, using Lipid Nano-Particles (LNPs), has never previously been used on humans. Both vaccines carry genetic instructions for the host’s cells to make antigen to induce an immune response.
Due to the unprecedented ‘rush to market’ via Emergency Authorisation Usage in the USA, doctors should be aware of the deficiency of many of the established standards for vaccine development which have been bypassed. Of particular concern being the absence of completed Developmental and Reproductive Toxicity (DART) studies. Neither were genotoxicity nor carcinogenicity studies performed. There is also an absence of long-term safety data….
I have left out important sections of the Letter on masks, restrictions, early treatments, informed consent, and other key points. Thus I urge you to read the entire Letter for yourself, which has numerous live links to the relevant research, evidence and data: www.covidmedicalnetwork.com/open-letters/first-do-no-harm.aspx
There clearly are other reputable points of view out there. It is imperative that they get a full and fair hearing, and not be ridiculed, sidelined and censored.
