Imagine if there was a simple test to establish if you had covid antibodies that could be carried out at any chemist and the results known within 10 minutes. If there was such a thing, there would be no need for the government to inject everyone with a covid booster shot.
The test could save the taxpayer $Millions in fees to Pfizer as members of the public would pay to get the test and know for sure they are protected against the virus (which has a 99% survival rate).
Thankfully, there is a test – but the New Zealand government has banned it. Jacinda Ardern doesn’t want you to know if you have covid antibodies and therefore able to fight off infections.
Details of the Arca test, which requires a simple drop of blood for testing, was first announced by Radio New Zealand in November 2021. Speculation was that the test – made by Auckland firm Orbis – would be quickly rolled out to chemists across New Zealand. We are still waiting.
And the reason we are still waiting is possibly due to section 37 of the Medicines Act 1981 which prohibits the “importation, manufacture, packing, sale, supply or use of any kits and/or other test materials intended for use as point of care testing for covid-19 infection or for post-infection confirmation using an antigen or antibody detection system”.
The bottom line is that many people could be needlessly injected with a drug they do not need – because they are already immune to the effects of covid.
The technology which could be placed at airports allowing travellers in any direction to be tested.
And remember, having natural or artificial (vaccine) antibodies does not stop you from catching the covid virus nor spreading it to others. The best the covid vaccine can do is reduce your symptoms if you do catch covid – and given the virus is airborne it’s highly likely most of us have had a dose by now (and therefore have the antibodies).
It’s also worth noting that the covid vaccine wears off after around six months – hence the boosters. But if you have natural herd immunity antibodies then they last a lifetime. It’s nature’s way.
Finally, it has been whispered that the contract signed by our government with Pfizer for the supply of covid vaccines prevents antibody testing from being carried out. But we won’t know for sure until we see the contract, and that is not likely to happen any time soon. It’s a secret.
However, your MP is allowed to read it – so long as they sign a non-disclosure agreement. In other words, your MP can read the Pfizer contract but will not be allowed to tell you what it says (unless they want to break a legally-binding agreement).
Over to you…
