Dr. Ashish Jha should be fired
The Biden administration is getting their COVID-19 advice from someone who doesn't believe in science and makes stuff up. Are you surprised?
I wanted to write this headline earlier, but I got sidetracked. Now, Dr. Ashish Jha is in the headlines again with bad advice so this time I’m not going to give him a pass.
Consider the following headline:
Let me be very clear. Everyone, including the CDC, now knows what misinformation spreaders such as myself have been saying for a long time: vaccinated people don’t have a lower risk of getting COVID.
There is no evidence for the previous vaccines that you’re going to reduce community spread. If anything, the evidence shows the opposite when you look at it with a critical eye as Mathew Crawford has done, for example. Check out this chart from his article:
See the red part? It’s supposed to be black for cases, hospitalization, and death. If he’s wrong, someone should point that out to him on camera, but they all seem to be camera shy. I can’t figure it out. Nobody wants to challenge his analysis.
If you can’t interpret the chart, here’s what he wrote:
Boosters are a disaster. Not only are disease rates and mortality higher, but these are people subjecting themselves an additional time to adverse events, which seem to have a dose dependent relationship (more LNPs or more mRNA are doing worse damage due to either pathological priming or toxic buildup or prions or…).
But you don’t need to believe me or Mathew on any of that. Here’s why:
There is no scientific evidence to support Jha’s statement. He’s making it up.
It is crystal clear that there is no evidence that the new booster prevents you from getting COVID or will prevent grandma from getting COVID from you.
The Pfizer combo booster was tested on just 8 mice and all of them got Omicron when they were challenged with the virus. Also, all the mice are dead now so it’s hard to assess the risk of death and/or hospitalization.
Why isn’t Jha telling American schools and universities to drop their vaccine mandates?
See my article about the paper from top authors that concludes that vaccine mandates are unethical for young adults. Why isn’t Jha telling Americans about this important analysis?
On the Israeli safety data, Jha never asked to see the data. Why not? Shouldn’t this be a top priority for him?
Biden should not be taking health advice from a guy who both makes up science and withholds scientific results from the public. Period. Full stop.
