The Most Vaccinated Nation

 From Zero Hedge:

The situation in the Seychelles, an island nation that has suffered from a recent surge in COVID-19 cases despite boasting the world's highest vaccination rate, is going from bad to worse. Since we last reported on the Seychelles one week ago, the island nation has faced a fresh surge in COVID cases. The vaccine failure cannot be determined without a detailed assessment, said the WHO. The hike in coronavirus cases has stoked concerns that the jabs might not be helping to suppress the island nation's COVID-19 outbreak. A vaccine failure can't be determined without a detailed study by the WHO, however.

Presently, the health body is in direct communication with Seychelles and working on evaluating the situation, said Kate O’Brien, director of the WHO’s department of immunization, vaccines and biologicals at a briefing on May 10.

The Indian Ocean archipelago nation started vaccinations in January when it introduced the Chinese-developed Sinopharm vaccine. It administered Chinese vaccine shots to 57% of those who were fully inoculated and the rest received vaccines that were made in India.

Since last week, the number of active coronavirus cases has more than doubled to 2,486 people. Of these, 37 percent of the population have received both the vaccine doses, as per the report.

Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, Seychelles re-imposed curbs last week, including closing schools, canceling sports events and banning mingling of households.

Seychelles' first two positive cases of COVID-19 were confirmed on March 14, 2020. The two individuals were a couple from Seychelles who had returned from a trip to Italy. Aftre this, the country imposed a nationwide lockdown in which most shops, businesses and schools were closed for 21 days in April. The airport was also closed and ships were prevented from bringing tourists. (Read more.)

From The Gateway Pundit:

A bombshell report from the New York Times revealed the CDC greatly exaggerated the risk of Covid transmission while outdoors.

According to the NY Times, the 10% transmission rate was based “partly on a misclassification” of some transmission in Singapore in a setting with a mix of indoors and outdoors.The real outdoor transmission rate is 1% or less!

“There are limited data on outdoor transmission,” a CDC official told the Times. “The data we do have supports the hypothesis that the risk of outdoor transmission is low. 10 percent is a conservative estimate from a recent systematic review of peer-reviewed papers. CDC cannot provide the specific risk level for every activity in every community and errs on the side of protection when it comes to recommending steps to protect health. It is important for people and communities to consider their own situations and risks and to take appropriate steps to protect their health.” (Read more.

From The Washington Times:

Rhetorical fireworks ensued yet again on Tuesday when Sen. Rand Paul faced off with Dr. Anthony Fauci over the COVID-19 pandemic. The Kentucky Republican, who has sparred with the infectious disease expert numerous times at Senate hearings, used the latest discussion to examine the extent of U.S. involvement with the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

“To arrive at the truth, the U.S. government should admit that the Wuhan Virology Institute was experimenting to enhance the coronavirus’s ability to infect humans,” Mr. Paul said. (Read more.)

This virus has created an onslaught of confusion, misinformation, manipulation of the truth, and manipulation of power under the guise of protecting public health. The outcome of this has created doubt and chronic skepticism among the population.
