Independent virologist and vaccine expert, Geert Vanden Bossche, DMV, PhD, says vaccinating people against Covid-19 during a pandemic is a “global catastrophe”.
The Belgian, who has worked for The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has publised an open letter to the World Health Organisation and the scientific / public health community saying he is not an anti-vaxxer, but as a “dedicated virologist and vaccine expert” he has decided to speak out because health authorities are allowing vaccines to be administered “in ways that threaten public health”.
His open letter, which can be downloaded here, says the present extremely critical situation forces him to spread this emergency call “as the unprecedented extent of human intervention in the Covid-19- pandemic is now at risk of resulting in a global catastrophe without equal, this call cannot sound loudly and strongly enough”.
He writes: “As stated, I am not against vaccinaton. On the contrary, I can assure you that each of the current vaccines have been designed, developed and manufactured by brilliant and competent scientists.
“However, this type of prophylactic vaccines are completely inappropriate, and even highly dangerous, when used in mass vaccination campaigns during a viral pandemic.
“Vaccinologists, scientists and clinicians are blinded by the positive short-term effects in individual patents, but don’t seem to bother about the disastrous consequences for global health. Unless I am scientifically proven wrong, it is difficult to understand how current human interventions will prevent circulating variants from turning into a wild monster.
“Racing against the clock, I am completing my scientific manuscript, the publication of which is, unfortunately, likely to come too late given the ever increasing threat from rapidly spreading, highly infectious variants.
“I provided international health organizations, including the WHO, with my analysis of the current pandemic as based on scientifically informed insights in the immune biology of Covid-19. Given the level of emergency, I urged them to consider my concerns and to initiate a debate on the detrimental consequences of further ‘viral immune escape’.”
Vanden Bossche concludes that there is not “one second left for gears to be switched and to replace the current killer vaccines by [with] life-saving vaccines”.
