Failed Pandemic Public Health Policy Who is to Blame ?
by Jeffrey Dach MD
Robert Malone MD feels that the hospitals and the government are to blame. The government is happy to go along with the hospital system “bilking billions of dollars” from government COVID incentives “by claiming excess disease and deaths” . This involves “playing with the numbers” What are real rates of disease and death in the USA. Nobody knows. We have to get the true numbers from other countries that actual keep real records. Here is a quote from Dr Robert Malone:
Our Hospital systems are failing in the US. THEY ARE FAILING. Our physicians are threatened and persecuted if they use life saving treatments. Hospitalists are determined to continue to push and insist on treatments that have been proven to not be safe or effective in our hospitals. Hospitals in the USA are fraudulently bilking the US Government for literally billions of dollars, by claiming excess disease and death. So much so, that it has become impossible to figure out the true rates of disease and death of Covid-19 and for all causes in the USA. It is shocking.
To actually cite reasons why this may be happening, such as the vaccines aren’t working, physicians right to treat and try has been removed, hospitals are literally killing people with their rigid and failed policies and treatments is death of one’s career. It you speak of the fraud happening at the very hospital you may be working at, it is grounds for dismissal.
And the US government not only doesn’t care, it supports the actions of such hospitalists. endquote emphasis mine . (1)
Blame Game: Authors of the Great Barrington Declaration Write in Newsweek
Martin Kulldorff and Jay Bhattacharya, two of the three authors of the Great Barrington Declaration, just published an Opinion piece in Newsweek entitled: Dr. Fauci and the Coronavirus Policy Blame Game. One might cite this appearance in NewsWeek, about as mainstream as you can get, by two “medical heretics” as proof the Covid narrative is shifting. The two eminent doctors should have been hailed as heros, but a sinister campaign disclosed in emails between Fauci and Collins derailed their careers. The two place the blame for failed public health policies firmly on Anthony Fauci, head of the NIAID a branch of the NIH. Here is their quote:
most people now realize that Washington’s pandemic policies failed. Lockdowns just postponed the inevitable while causing enormous collateral damage on cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, tuberculosis, mental health, education and much else…So, the blame game is in full swing. At a recent Senate hearing, Dr. Anthony Fauci did not even attempt to defend his policies. endquote (2)
What were these failed policies which Anthony Fauci did not bother to defend?
1) Lock Down the Country to “Flatten the Curve” (5-7)
2) Blocked use of Early Treatment: Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin and other drugs.(11-12)
2) Denied Natural Immunity after recovery from infection.
3) Funded Gain of Function Research in Wuhan lab.
4) Pushed high vaccine efficacy rates to the public when in fact the vaccines do not stop infection or spread of disease. (13-15)
You can read my satire pieces on Anthony Fauci at these links:
Johns Hopkins on Failure of Lockdowns
A Literature Review and Meta-Analysis of the Effects of Lockdowns on COVID-19 Mortality by Jonas Herby, Lars Jonung, and Steve H. Hanke of Johns Hopkins Medical School reviews 24 studies on lockdowns. The authors concluded lockdowns have little or no public health effects, are ill-founded and should be rejected as a policy instrument:
While this meta-analysis concludes that lockdowns have had little to no public health effects, they have imposed enormous economic and social costs where they have been adopted. In consequence, lockdown policies are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument. (5-7)
Kerry Wakefield Australia
An excellent play by play chronology of the failure of western public health policies comes from Kerry Wakefield in Australia, pointing out a number of inconvenient truths, namely, the vaccinated are catching Omicron variant at a higher rate than the unvaccinated. This is called “negative efficacy” of the vaccines. I would venture to guess this could be explained two ways: 1) the existence of “natural immunity” after recovery from infection in the unvaccinated which reduces severity of symptoms when exposed a second time. 2) immuno-suppressive effect or ADE (Antibody dependent enhancement) effect of the vaccines which increases severity of symptoms when exposed to a viral load.(13-15)
(3) Here is his quote:
The West’s Covid-19 strategy of lockdowns, mass vaccinations and extreme curbs is losing credibility by the moment…Despite vaccination levels running at 70 per cent and above in many Western nations, Covid cases are at record levels across the UK, Europe, Australia, the US, Israel…The variants are outrunning the scientists’ vaccines, vaccine efficacy is waning, and multiple health authorities such as the WHO and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) have come out warning against repeated boosters, not only because they were designed for previous variants, but because they may have adverse health effects…
Former UK vaccine agency boss Dr Clive Dix says vaccinations have now become a ‘waste of time’… For most in the West, the pandemic seems clearly over…the global mass vaccination strategy is looking more like a foreseeable error; vaccines inevitably trail viral variants and as with the flu vaccine, being protected against last year’s variant may not be much help against this year’s strain…
New reports show the jabbed seem more likely to catch Covid than the unjabbed, possibly due to an immune-suppression effect of the vaccines.
In January, Public Health Scotland released age-adjusted figures showing a Covid case rate of 11 per 1000 in the unvaccinated, compared with 25 per 1000 in the double-jabbed. The jabbed were also twice as likely to be hospitalized. (3)
Dr Harvey Risch Brownstone Institute
Epidemiologist from Yale, Dr Harvey Risch has always been a voice of reason standing high above the mediocrity of seemingly brain dead public health officials pronouncements. He should have been consulted by government for his opinion. Shockingly, he was ignored. Dr Risch concludes it is time to “terminate the pandemic state of emergency”. Here is the quote:
The time has come to terminate the pandemic state of emergency. It is time to end the controls, the closures, the restrictions, the plexiglass, the stickers, the exhortations, the panic-mongering, the distancing announcements, the ubiquitous commercials, the forced masking, the vaccine mandates…
Measures like mandatory masking and distancing have had negligible or at most small effects on transmission. Large-scale population quarantines only delay the inevitable. Vaccination and boosters have not halted omicron disease spread; heavily vaccinated nations like Israel and Australia have more daily cases per capita than any place on earth at the moment. This wave will run its course despite all of the emergency measures.
Until omicron, recovery from Covid provided substantial protection against subsequent infection. While the omicron variant can reinfect patients recovered from infection by previous strains, such reinfection tends to produce mild disease. Future variants, whether evolved from omicron or not, are unlikely to evade the immunity provided by omicron infection for a long while.
Given that omicron, with its mild infection, is running its course to the end, there is no justification for maintaining emergency status. The lockdowns, personnel firings and shortages and school disruptions have done at least as much damage to the population’s health and welfare as the virus.
Americans have sacrificed enough of their human rights and of their livelihoods for two years in the service of protecting the general public health. Omicron is circulating but it is not an emergency. The emergency is over. The current emergency declaration must be canceled. It is time. emphasis mine (4)
Twelve European Countries Lift Covid Restrictions
Perhaps a number of European countries have harkened to Dr Harvey Risches words ? Or perhaps they have similar epidemiologist advisors who share the same views. 12 countries in Europe have declared the end of COVID restrictions. Israel has declared they will scrap the “Green Pass” Vaccine Passport to enter shops and venues in Israel.(8-10)
Sweden and Switzerland joined Denmark, Norway, Finland, Ireland, The Netherlands, Italy, Lithuania, France and the UK in announcing they will lift COVID restrictions and open up their countries. ending all Covid restrictions.(8)
Covid Vaccines Fail to Stop Spread of COVID
These two chart of daily cases and hospitalizations in heavily vaccinated Israel (Pfizer) shows vaccine failure to stop spread of COVID. Cases and hospitalizations exceed all previous waves. See Red Arrows. (courtesy of Worldometer):
Vaccine Adverse Effects – Life Insurance Payouts
I first brought attention to the alarming increase in adverse events reported for the COVID vaccines back in May and August of 2021 in these two newsletters:
More recently, we have revelations from the Life Insurance Industry of increased 40% death payouts in working age group, age 18-64. Most of the life insurance death claims are not labeled as due to COVID. (16-17) As you might recall, the vast majority of mortality from Covid has been in the elderly, above the age of 65, and those with with underlying preconditions, so overall mortality from COVID can not explain a 40% increase in life insurance death pay outs in the 18-64 age group.
Here is the quote from Indiana Life Insurance Company One America from Mr Davison:
We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business. Most of the claims for deaths being filed are not classified as COVID-19 deaths, Davison said the company is seeing an “uptick” in disability claims, saying at first it was short-term disability claims, and now the increase is in long-term disability claims. (16)
What is causing this massive wave of suddenly increased mortality in this age group that is not elderly nor at the end of their life span? Many of these deaths are related to cardiovascular disease, heart attacks and strokes, as one might expect from the pathogenic spike protein which attacks the vascular system. This is the same spike protein the mRNA “vaccine” instructs our cells to manufacture in uncontrolled amounts.
I would take a wild guess and raise this question: “What mass medical intervention has taken place during this same time period?” Connect the dots, and the inescapable question is: “could it be the vaccines”? After all, our VAERS system is showing a “safety signal” of massively increased injury and death. (Note: VAERS= vaccine adverse event reporting system). In the mainstream media, this massive increase in mortality is being attributed to the virus itself, rather than the vaccine.
24% Increased Mortality in Vaccinated Compared to Placebo
In addition, the original Pfizer COVID vaccine clinical trial shows 24 percent increased mortality in the vaccine group compared to placebo. (18)
Unfortunately there is no official or formal clinical follow up in the vaccinated population, which is an experimental vaccine with EUA (emergency use authorization). And, the word is that vaccine adverse events and deaths are ignored or suppressed by the medical system. So, there is no way to answer this question with hard data. There has been no clinical follow up of the vaccinated population !
There are a few exceptions. The Department of Defense (DOD) has hard data on the military and this data is about to be explosively revealed showing the numbers and severity of various vaccine adverse events. Some of this data was revealed by Attorney Tom Renz at Senator Johnson’s “Second Opinion” Senate Hearing . You can view the entire 5 hour round table discussion in the Senate hearing room at this link: Top Experts Join Senator Ron Johnson in Panel Discussion
We await the release of this DOD information on Vaccine adverse effects in the military, and hope that it is not suppressed or censored as has been the usual case.
Increased Mortality in Countries with High Vaccination Rates
Mike Whitney at the Expose has compiled the data from a number of highly vaccinated countries showing increased mortality. His analysis is compelling and disturbing. (19)
Also from the Expose in the UK, here is data in (below chart) from the UK showing increased mortality rate per 100,000 person years in the younger age group (age 10-14) after two dose vaccination compared to the unvaccinated. See tall Red Column on left.
UK Data (See Above Chart , highest red bar at left showing increased mortality after 2 dose vaccination x 52 times for age 10-14)
Official Data shows Children are up to 52 times more likely to die following Covid-19 Vaccination than Unvaccinated Children & the ONS is trying to hide it By The Exposé on January 29, 2022
Conclusion: Who is to blame for the failure of public health policies? The entire medical system, our government, the pharmaceutical industry, in short, every one.

Failure of Washington’s pandemic policies
1) The US Public Health Response has been a Colossal Failure
The US Deaths keep piling up…Robert W Malone MD, MS 2/3/22
2) Dr. Fauci and the Coronavirus Policy Blame Game Opinion Martin Kulldorff and Jay Bhattacharya On 1/31/22 Newsweek
With millions of Americans getting infected and over 800,000 reported COVID-19 deaths, most people now realize that Washington’s pandemic policies failed. Lockdowns just postponed the inevitable while causing enormous collateral damage on cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, tuberculosis, mental health, education and much else.
So, the blame game is in full swing. At a recent Senate hearing, Dr. Anthony Fauci did not even attempt to defend his policies. Instead, he insisted that: “Everything that I have said has been in support of the CDC guidelines.”
3) The reckoning has begun The West’s Covid strategy is crumbling
Kerry Wakefield 22 January 2022 Spectator Australia
The West’s Covid-19 strategy of lockdowns, mass vaccinations and extreme curbs is losing credibility by the moment, even if various wannabe-despots are slow to realise it.
Despite vaccination levels running at 70 per cent and above in many Western nations, Covid cases are at record levels across the UK, Europe, Australia, the US, Israel and more, nearly two years after the virus first escaped China. The variants are outrunning the scientists’ vaccines, vaccine efficacy is waning, and multiple health authorities such as the WHO and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) have come out warning against repeated boosters, not only because they were designed for previous variants, but because they may have adverse health effects.
‘We should be careful in not overloading the immune system with repeated immunizations,’ warned Marco Cavaleri, the EMA head of vaccines strategy.
Former UK vaccine agency boss Dr Clive Dix says vaccinations have now become a ‘waste of time’. And finally, early treatments are in focus – new drugs, antivirals and more.
For most in the West, the pandemic seems clearly over, even if care must still be taken to protect the vulnerable and our hospital system. The best aspect of Australia’s response is that, geographically isolated, we kept the more dangerous original virus and variants at bay until milder Omicron arrived. No doubt this saved thousands of lives. But with the benefit of hindsight, the global mass vaccination strategy is looking more like a foreseeable error; vaccines inevitably trail viral variants and as with the flu vaccine, being protected against last year’s variant may not be much help against this year’s strain.
Australia, except for wayward sandgropers, has abandoned its policy of zero-Covid and is letting the dominant, milder Omicron variant run. The result is rocketing case numbers, pressure on hospital systems, and a two-note chant from our politicians of vax, vax, boost, vax, vax boost. Yet the ‘vaccines’ have not prevented infection or transmission among the jabbed, and are of little efficacy against Omicron, as even Pfizer boss Albert Bourla said recently. Yes, a third shot might provide a few more weeks of protection – until the next variant.
And how severe is Omicron? It poses a 91 per cent lower death threat than the Delta variant, said Centres for Disease Control (CDC) director Rochelle Walensky, citing a big new study showing only one death among 52,000 Omicron cases. Eminent Stanford epidemiologist John Ioannidis released a study recently of Covid infection fatality rates in the unvaccinated, which ranged from 0.0013 per cent in those aged 0-19 to 4.9 per cent in those aged over 70. The study concluded that fatality rates were lower than previously reported. Add in any vaccine efficacy in reducing the worst outcomes, and the real threat is even lower.
Here, Australian Bureau of Statistics figures up to October 2021 put the median age of Covid deaths at 83, (which is also our life expectancy), of whom 70 per cent had chronic pre-existing conditions, commonly heart disease. By mid-January, as cases and testing raged, Covid’s death tally had climbed to nearly 2,600 over nearly two years. In contrast, flu and pneumonia killed 4,124 Australians in 2019, around 11 people a day, and somehow, we didn’t panic, mask or lock down. Our Covid case fatality rate is one per cent, barely affecting those under 60 (0.1 per cent) but far deadlier for the elderly. Relatives who’ve had it recently say it’s just a bad cold. So, if you’re ill, old, or obese, take your shots, but normal life should return for everyone else.
This sounds remarkably like the strategy outlined in the Great Barrington Declaration (GBD), authored by eminent scientists from Oxford, Harvard, and Stanford, and signed by 60,000 physicians, which argued for focussed protection, herd immunity and early treatments – not mass vaccination, lockdowns and masking.
The US health establishment colluded to bury this push, an email recently emerging in which the National Institutes of Health boss, Francis Collins, asked National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases head honcho Anthony Fauci for ‘a quick and devastating take down’ of these ‘fringe epidemiologists’.
Early treatment options that emerged got similarly ‘cancelled’. A recent leaked report from the ne plus ultra of US top secret squirrel agencies, the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency criticises in passing the suppression of potential curatives. Author Major Joseph Murphy said both ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine were identified as Covid curatives in April 2020 but noted that the files containing this information were unmarked and thus effectively hidden.
Moreover, the bills for this Fauci-driven strategy, especially the rushed and experimental ‘vaccines’, are coming due. New reports show the jabbed seem more likely to catch Covid than the unjabbed, possibly due to an immune-suppression effect of the vaccines.
In January, Public Health Scotland released age-adjusted figures showing a Covid case rate of 11 per 1000 in the unvaccinated, compared with 25 per 1000 in the double-jabbed. The jabbed were also twice as likely to be hospitalised.
4) The Emergency Must Be Ended, Now By Harvey Risch, Jayanta Bhattacharya, Paul Elias Alexander January 23, 2022
he time has come to terminate the pandemic state of emergency. It is time to end the controls, the closures, the restrictions, the plexiglass, the stickers, the exhortations, the panic-mongering, the distancing announcements, the ubiquitous commercials, the forced masking, the vaccine mandates.
We don’t mean that the virus is gone – omicron is still spreading wildly, and the virus may circulate forever. But with a normal focus on protecting the vulnerable, we can treat the virus as a medical rather than a social matter and manage it in ordinary ways. A declared emergency needs continuous justification, and that is now lacking.
5) Covid lockdown ‘prevented only 0.2pc of deaths in first wave’
Researchers say the costs of lockdowns to society far outweighed the benefits and argue that they should be ‘rejected out of hand’
6) FOX 5 DC Johns Hopkins study shows lockdowns only reduced COVID-19 death rate by .2%
Lockdowns during the first COVID-19 wave in the spring of 2020 only reduced COVID-19 mortality by .2% in the U.S. and Europe
Abstract: This systematic review and meta-analysis are designed to determine whether there is empirical evidence to support the belief that “lockdowns” reduce COVID-19 mortality. Lockdowns are defined as the imposition of at least one compulsory, non-pharmaceutical intervention (NPI). NPIs are any government mandate that directly restrict peoples’ possibilities, such as policies that limit internal movement, close schools and businesses, and ban international travel. This study employed a systematic search and screening procedure in which 18,590 studies are identified that could potentially address the belief posed. After three levels of screening, 34 studies ultimately qualified. Of those 34 eligible studies, 24 qualified for inclusion in the meta-analysis. They were separated into three groups: lockdown stringency index studies, shelter-in-place-order (SIPO) studies, and specific NPI studies. An analysis of each of these three groups support the conclusion that lockdowns have had little to no effect on COVID-19 mortality. More specifically, stringency index studies find that lockdowns in Europe and the United States only reduced COVID-19 mortality by 0.2% on average. SIPOs were also ineffective, only reducing COVID-19 mortality by 2.9% on average. Specific NPI studies also find no broad-based evidence of noticeable effects on COVID-19 mortality.
While this meta-analysis concludes that lockdowns have had little to no public health effects, they have imposed enormous economic and social costs where they have been adopted. In consequence, lockdown policies are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.

vaccinated people are 8X more likely to develop Omicron than unvaccinated people
15) New studies show that the COVID vaccines damage your immune system, likely permanently
The vaccines are making it more likely you’ll be infected with Omicron 90 days after you are fully vaccinated. To keep vaccine effectiveness high against omicron, vaccination every 30 days is needed. Steve Kirsch Dec 24, 2021
Update Jan 7, 2022: The numbers in the Denmark study described below are now confirmed by government data from Germany showing that vaccinated people are 8X more likely to develop Omicron than unvaccinated people. This is not surprising since a paper from Germany showed the same thing: the more you vaccinate, the worse it gets.
Worried about Omicron? Guess what? After 90 days, the vaccine they gave you is going to make you MORE likely to get infected from Omicron, not less. The longer you stay on the vaccine treadmill, the harder to get off in the future and the easier you’ll make it for the virus.

The number of hospitalizations in the state is now higher than before the COVID-19 vaccine was introduced a year ago, and in fact is higher than it’s been in the past five years, Dr. Lindsay Weaver, Indiana’s chief medical officer, said at a news conference with Gov. Eric Holcomb on Wednesday.

Are Face Masks Effective? The Evidence.
Updated: January 2022 First published: July 2020
Conclusion Face masks in the general population might be effective, at least in some circumstances, but there is currently little to no evidence supporting this proposition. If the coronavirus is primarily transmitted via indoor aerosols, face masks are unlikely to be protective. Thus, health authorities should not assume or suggest that face masks will reduce the rate or risk of infection.
