Quote:Volunteers Are Lining Up to Be Infected With the Coronavirus
By James Paton
June 17, 2020

When Gavriel Kleinwaks was a child, she was captivated by the story of Jonas Salk, the vaccine pioneer who tested a potential polio shot on himself, his wife and children in 1953. Nationwide trials seen as the biggest public-health experiment ever later proved that it worked.

The biggest public health lie ever. It is common knowledge that poliovirus was waning fast and new cases of poliomyelitis were almost non-existent when Salk's vaccine was 'tested'.

Quote:Now Kleinwaks is signing up to take part in another high-stakes experiment. The doctoral student at the University of Colorado is one of almost 30,000 volunteers willing to deliberately expose themselves to the coronavirus to test a potential vaccine, should researchers decide to proceed.

With the world desperate to end the pandemic, the idea of purposely infecting people with a dangerous pathogen that has no cure is fueling a debate over what kind of sacrifice is acceptable and the benefits such trials could bring. Known as human-challenge studies, these tests can hasten research by placing volunteers in the path of the virus, rather than waiting for accidental exposure.

The controversial approach may become necessary at some point as the disease ebbs in some cities, making it harder to evaluate shots in the more conventional way, according to Pascal Soriot, chief executive officer of drugmaker AstraZeneca Plc. The company is working with the University of Oxford on one of the most advanced vaccines against the virus.

This is the same scandalous Oxford University RECOVERY study now under close scrutiny after 25 percent of participants died when researchers switched out hydroxychloroquine for a similarly named drug and then administered an overdose.

Quote:No Cure
The lack of a drug to save people who are seriously ill is one of the main ethical concerns about human-challenge trials, along with limited knowledge about a virus that’s killed almost half a million people in several months. A partnership launched by the U.S. National Institutes of Health isn’t planning to support such studies for Covid-19, the agency said in an email.

The aforementioned Oxford 'study' apparently tried to show that remdesivir, costing hundreds of thousands per treatment, would be effective against COVID but failed. (Remdesivir, a drug in search of a disease, failed against hepatitis and Ebola too, but they keep trying.) It has been revealed that the level of hydroxychloroquine used was lower than that recommended by clinical trials, guaranteeing failure.

Quote:Still, the model is gaining more attention. A project focused on human challenge studies led by the University of Antwerp and the Free University of Brussels attracted 20 million euros ($22 million) in Belgian government funding, the institutions said. The initiative to establish a facility and labs to test vaccines has drawn interest from drug companies, according to the universities.

Money always helps.

Quote:Kleinwaks says she wrestled with doubts at first, but gradually grew more comfortable with the idea after assessing the risks. Fueling her decision to volunteer, she says, is a lesson from the Talmud -- saving one life is akin to saving the entire world -- and a desire to help end the outbreak.

Oh dear.

Quote:“We are all at risk of exposure every time we step out of our own home,” the 23-year-old engineering student said. “Nobody is guaranteed to be safe.”

And I'm sure she looks both ways before crossing the street.

Quote:The way vaccines are usually tested is by inoculating a large number of people and comparing their infection rates to those from a population of unvaccinated volunteers. But waiting for both groups to become exposed to the illness in their regular daily lives to draw conclusions about whether the vaccine works can take months or even years.

So we will repeat the mistakes of the past.

Quote:The initiative that attracted Kleinwaks is organized by 1DaySooner, a group that advocates on behalf of people who want to join challenge studies. The organization has held discussions with potential partners and vaccine manufacturers in a bid to start production of the virus, said Josh Morrison, one of its founders.

What could go wrong?

Quote:Brazil’s Volunteers
More than a quarter of the volunteers are in Brazil, where the coronavirus is spreading fast. 1DaySooner has contacted vaccine developers planning final-stage studies there to suggest they consider people on its list for conventional studies, too, according to Morrison.

Volunteers’ personal motivations vary, but many cite a sense of common good. Jason Crowell, a 42-year-old lawyer in London, even persuaded his reluctant wife to join him after watching the coronavirus claim the lives of more than 40,000 people in Britain, including one of his friends.

‘Feel Useful’
Gloria Lee, a violinist, found out about the opportunity to join the challenge trial movement after the pandemic forced organizers to cancel a recital set for early May at New York University, her debut solo in the city, along with other performances.

“I started to think about what I could do to feel useful and to hopefully be part of the effort to put this virus to rest,” said Lee, who is 30. “It’s the most important thing I could do at this moment.”

Besides accelerating vaccine development, human-challenge studies could ultimately help make shots more effective, according to the World Health Organization, which has outlined the criteria that would need to be met to carry out the tests. 

Proponents note that the approach was used safely for diseases such as malaria, typhoid, cholera as well as the flu.

Society asks volunteer firefighters to rush into burning buildings and relatives to donate organs to loved ones, scientists Nir Eyal, Marc Lipsitch and Peter Smith wrote in March. They said studies could focus on people between 20 and 45 years old, an age range in which the chances of serious complications or death are far lower.

But the studies could take at least several months to start, and the NIH said there should be enough natural transmission of the virus in the U.S. to carry out tests this summer. The agency also cited “serious ethical considerations.”

Rushing trials without fully considering the impact they could have in getting vaccines to the public more quickly would be a mistake, but “it is worth laying the groundwork now,” Seema Shah, an ethics specialist at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, wrote with others in the New York Times earlier this month.

“We have to know that volunteers were not exposed to risk in vain,” they wrote. “Public trust in vaccines and research depend on it.”

Draw your own conclusions.

Meanwhile, the WHO would like you to know that the virus is not mutating...

Amazing. :O

Before my plumber came over today I was told they are following the CDC guidelines with masks, no contact, I should have my own pen ready to sign the invoice...

I told the guy the CDC now says no to masks, the virus does not spread by human contact, and it doesn't spread by touching objects.

10 minutes late he showed up with no mask and no concerns. :)

We just have to keep sharing the info with everyone we meet to break the spell!
Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist. 
The demons of the air together with the Antichrist will perform great wonders  
The Church will be in eclipse

-Our Lady of La Salette


Like Christ, His Bride the Church will undergo its own passion, burial, and resurrection.
-unknown traditional priest

Father Ripperger said that if we are detached from all things, aren't afraid to suffer, and we accept all suffering as the will of God for our sanctity, we have nothing to fear!

Let's not forget that Salk has a dysgenic outlook on humanity.
"The Heart of Jesus is closer to you when you suffer, than when you are full of joy." - St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

"modern Catholics have tended to put too much faith in the pope and too little in the Church." - Bishop Williamson.

I didn't know that detail but it's really no surprise, is it? There's been something wrong with the vaccine movement from the beginning, and now we know the underlying premise is wrong too.

Here is an eye-opening 13 min vid on our supposed hero Jonas Salk and his disgusting eugenics world view:

That was the exact video I had in mind when I said that.
I'll say it again, people should check out Jay's Globalist book series videos. His theology is bunk, and he's quite arrogant, but he does a good job with the psy-op/NWO coverage.

"What does it mean to be 'pro-life'? It means to support Evolution, killing most of the population."

What a repulsive philosophy.

I looked the book up. You can get your own copy for the bargain price of $199 (acceptable condition) or $750 for a used, signed first edition. I'll pass.
