'Halt Covid-19 vaccination drive': Indian doctors join campaign across 36 nations

By Rosamma Thomas* 

A group of Spanish doctors first got together to call for a halt to the Covid-19 vaccinations, and doctors from other countries too later joined them – there are now over 12,000 doctors from India, Portugal, Canada, Hungary, South Africa, Israel and a host of other nations who have issued a call to halt vaccinations.
On September 10, a group of Indian doctors came together to address the press over a webinar to explain why they thought the vaccination drive should end forthwith. Dr Amitav Banerjee, who after a career as an epidemiologist in the Indian Army now teaches at a private medical college in Pune, said there was no longer a medical emergency. Children are at low risk of infection, and there is good reason to halt vaccination and conduct proper research, given the high number of adverse events. There is a sudden and poorly explained spike in the number of young and healthy people dying. While it may be impossible to attribute deaths entirely to the vaccination drive alone, there is reason to heed this red flag of the spike in the deaths of the previously healthy and investigate the safety of the vaccines.
Other doctors who attended the press conference pointed to rising incidence of cancer and instances of whistleblowers in the US and elsewhere exposing malpractice in the manufacture of vaccines.
The doctors pointed out that there was no precedent in medical history of a product causing so many adverse events. A Harvard University study (pre-print) shows the vaccine is more dangerous than the virus. On September 13, Denmark announced that it would not vaccinate those less than 50 years old.
Dr Praveen Saxena said he would rarely see cases of auto-immune disease in the 1990s; these days, there are many such cases. Cancer cases were spiking, there were instances of sudden death of infants and vaccination enhanced disease. There are no proper follow-up studies of the vaccinated, and these problems are poorly understood.

Dr Gautam Das said vaccination represented the single-largest invasive medical intervention in living memory. There is no control group, and deaths and adverse events are not being systematically recorded, so studying the condition in India post-vaccination is hard. He said those who asserted that the vaccines were safe and effective and encouraged healthy people to get vaccinated should now be held accountable.
Pediatrician Dr Megha Consul said she was seeing early onset sepsis and brain clots, which was not seen in babies earlier. Earlier, the womb was considered sacred and vaccines were given last to pregnant women, after proper testing. This current drive of Covid-19 vaccination has obliterated the sanctity of the womb and the introduction of “untested materials” – she refused to call it a vaccine – was criminal.
Doctors from 36 countries had earlier released a petition calling for the halt to vaccination and describing the crisis caused by vaccination as unprecedented. “We are currently witnessing an excess in mortality in those countries where the majority of the population has received the so-called “Covid-19 vaccines”. To date, this excess mortality has neither been sufficiently investigated nor studied by national and international health institutions. The large number of sudden deaths in previously healthy young people who were inoculated with these ‘vaccines’ is particularly worrying, as is the high incidence of miscarriages and perinatal deaths which have not been investigated,” the statement said, terming it “an unprecedented international medical crisis”.

Stagnating wages since 2014-15: Economists explain Modi legacy for informal workers

By Our Representative  Real wages have barely risen in India since 2014-15, despite rapid GDP growth. The country’s social security system has also stagnated in this period.

Why it's only Modi ki guarantee, not BJP's, and how Varanasi has seen it up-close

"Development" along Ganga By Rosamma Thomas*  I was in Varanasi in this April, days before polling began for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. There are huge billboards advertising the Member of Parliament from Varanasi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The only image on all these large hoardings is of the PM, against a saffron background. It is as if the very person of Modi is what his party wishes to showcase.
