Indian Doctors for Truth want Modi to stop overzealous universal vaccination drive

At a time when there is a huge demand to ensure that vaccination should be universal in order to gain immunity against the pandemic, an organisation called Indian Doctors for Truth, have asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the “urgent need to stop the overzealous universal vaccination drive against Covid-19. 
Read the letter, signed by 18 doctors and a health expert:
***
We, the undersigned Indian Doctors for Truth, want to bring to your notice certain scientific facts about immunity achieved by Indian population among adults and children, alike, in the light of the latest sero-survey done by AIIMS along with WHO, for immediate action. Looking at the evidence, we urge you to immediately stop the drive for vaccination of the entire population and limit it to voluntary vaccination of only those above 60 years and/or people with severe degree of comorbidity.
The first principle of medicine is Do No Harm. This is often considered a main component of the Hippocratic Oath, which of course is recited at most medical school graduations. Well, sort of. An actual translation of what is written in the Oath would be more like: “I will follow that system of regimen which, according to my ability and judgment, I consider for the benefit of my patients, and abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous.”
In our submission we want to point out that by ignoring the Medical Knowledge established for last 100 years, and biased by western data and practice, the vaccination drive started in India is doing more harm than any good for the people of India.
We present before you the scientific facts about SARS COV2 related immunity and vaccination.
1. There is enough and robust evidence available now that those who have recovered from Covid 19 develop robust and long-lasting immunity against SARS CoV2, even after mild or asymptomatic infections, and that chances of reinfection among these people, even from the emerging variants of the same virus, are extremely rare or non-existent. The WHO in its interim guidance released on July 2, 2021 has also recognised the fact of acquired immunity in all those who have had previous infection with SARS-CoV-2.
2. There is no evidence to show that those who have recovered from the infection will get any additional benefit from vaccination. There is an elegant study from the Cleveland Health System which has conclusively reported that those infected do not get reinfected, whether vaccinated or not.
3. The epidemiology of Covid 19 in India is very different from other countries of the world and even within India, there are differences between urban and rural communities and between socioeconomic strata. Therefore, we need to have our own policies regarding prevention of covid19 here, including the policy on vaccination. According to available reports, the percentage of population infected in the US, UK, and such other countries is at 123%. In India, recent sero-surveys at Delhi and Mumbai have reported a positivity of 5070%, indicating that a significant proportion of our people have already been infected, reaching the levels of herd immunity, and will not need the vaccine.

And many reports of India achieving herd immunity have already appeared. The mathematical models have explained how what percentage of population is required to be infected is also different for different population and with mixing rates fitted to social activity, the disease-induced herd immunity level can be ~43%.
4. Case Fatality Rate is the rate that is usually reported by the government, that is the number of deaths per 100 confirmed cases as detected by antigen or rt-PCR test. But as renowned Epidemiologist Dr John Ioannidis, whose paper shows proper way of counting death rate in diseases with CFR less than 5 is Infection Mortality Rate. That is from serosurveys the actual prevalence of the infection in community is found and death rate counted from that is Infection Fatality Rate. The IFR is less than 0.1% world over and is shown to be so in India from various serosurveys done by ICMR.
5. Covid19 is now proven to be asymptomatic or mild disease with infection fatality rate of 0.001-0.01% or lower, and particularly in the population younger than 30 years, it is mostly asymptomatic and harmless. [23-26] Therefore, considering the fact of high level of infections in India, near herd immunity, and very low levels of Infection Fatality Rates, vaccinating the entire population will not serve any purpose. Looking at the negligible risk to the children from Covid-19, trial of the vaccines for them or even consideration approval is highly unethical.
6. A very important development that has taken place because of 4 latest studies that proves that almost 99.9% population has the memory from previous corona infection and that whether to the actual corona infection or to vaccine it is our same immune memory gets activated and vaccines in fact are more harmful in an already immune population. Based on that Doctors for Covid Ethics have written letter to tens of thousands of doctors in Europe. Four recent scientific discoveries are herewith brought to your urgent attention. They alter the entire landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic, and they force us to reassess the merits of vaccination against SARS-CoV-2. Rapid and efficient memory-type immune responses occur reliably in virtually all unvaccinated individuals who are exposed to SARS-CoV-2. The effectiveness of further boosting the immune response through vaccination is therefore highly doubtful. Vaccination may instead aggravate disease through antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE).

7. In the light of availability of many treatments now proving to be effective for SARSCoV-2 and the realization that the overuse of certain medical procedures and drugs if not repeated many lives can be saved without any vaccines which are not as harmless as portrayed.
8. Government’s own Operative Guidelines have mentioned that “Covid-19 vaccines have limited safety data”. Later advisory by the government about clotting is also quite revealing. Adverse effects of the vaccine are found world over. As per the EUDRA report dated June 19, more than 1.3 million people in the Europe have had vaccine adverse effects and 13,867 people have died because of the vaccine. Similarly, as per VAERS, 6985 deaths have occurred in the US because of the vaccine and 4,41,931 incidents of vaccine adverse effect have been reported along with 34,065 severe ailments because of the vaccine from 14 December, 2020 to 25 June, 2021. As per MHRA of England, there have been 9,49,000 adverse effects and more than 1300 deaths because of the vaccine. In such circumstances, after vaccinating more than 24 million people, only 488 deaths and a little more than 26,000 adverse effects by AEFI in India is unimaginable. Only the first death because of vaccines is confessed as per AEFI on 15 June, which is also far away from the truth. The prime reason behind this is the inappropriate system of reporting vaccine adverse effects and vaccine deaths in our country.
9. As in most countries, in India also, the death rate from Corona has increased with increase in vaccination drive as is shown by data and the recorded Corona deaths with Vaccine drive in many countries. And that is a matter of investigation. Experts have given various reasons, for vaccinated (Intravascular clotting and Antibody Enhancement) and even nonvaccinated people because of leaking vaccine. It can be purely because lockdown with its deleterious effect on all facets of our lives has increased vulnerability to all infections. Our regular rise of respiratory infections in the months following Holi has just exaggerated because of this lockdown effect. And rt-PCR can detect previous Coronavirus, flu virus and give positive and patient’s symptoms can be because of any other disease even if rt-PCR is positive. So, more cases and more deaths are a matter of investigation after vaccination. But because of serosurveys futility of vaccine drive is well established. (Refer here)
10. The number of deaths per thousand population has not increased in the year 2020 in most countries as much as it increased in last 10 years, when the populations were dealing with Corona virus on their own, death rate has not increased in 2020 it is only after the vaccine drive the deaths have increased. Even in India the death per thousand increased 0.5% in 2019 but 0.49% in 2020.

Considering all the above, we strongly urge the following:

1. The overzealous universal vaccination against Covid-19 drive, with widespread incidences of coercion and vaccination being made mandatory for jobs, examination for students, must be stopped immediately.
2. The people above the age of 60 and people with severe comorbidities may be offered vaccination on voluntary basis with full disclosure of warnings about side effects and lack of safety data as are mentioned in Government’s operative Guidelines for Covid-19 vaccination and later declared for Intravascular clotting.
3. In the light of the fact that majority children in our country are also post Covid and on an average 56% of them are having antibodies without ever getting serious disease, All Trials on children for Covid-19 vaccine should stop and in upcoming meetings no consideration is required to approve the vaccines for children who have finished the trial.
4. We also urge the government to institute detailed studies to analyse the observation that there has been surge in cases and deaths due to covid in India since March-April 2021, coinciding with the roll out of the vaccination drive.
We are ready to come and meet you to have a full discussion on this at its earliest and as the matter is urgent and of grave concern, we expect an urgent call from you.
Expecting a prompt action on this front from you,

Thank you very much Rajivji, this message has to reach every Indian. Along with this letter we have provided a 26 page annexure providing all arguments and evidence for what we say in the letter. Further data now says over 70% of Indian people are immune. There's no need for vaccine. Also the rt-pcr or antigen tests are not reliable because they are not specific.
