Vaccinated on Christmas Eve, dead five days later
A person died in Switzerland five days after receiving the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine. Authorities said a link with the vaccine was "highly unlikely". German media called his doctor a "Coronavirus skeptic".

Authorities in the Swiss Canton of Lucerne in the municipality of Ebikon, said on Wednesday that one of the first people to receive the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine in the country has died. Deutsche Welle noted that “the case was initially reported by a coronavirus-skeptic doctor”.
The first serious incident occured in the canton whose health director Guido Graf (CVP) wanted to be the first to start the Corona vaccinations. On Christmas Eve, vaccinations started on dementia patients.
The canton Lucerne was thus the site of the first vaccinations in Switzerland which was launched last week, with injections given primarily to elderly people. Switzerland has received 107 000 vaccine doses and expects some additional 250 000 per month starting next year.
On December 26, the resident complained of urethral and abdominal pain. He kept getting restless, his blood pressure dropped and his pulse increased. The doctor in charge examined the vaccine recipient one last time on Sunday evening, December 27. He was calm, but his stomach was painful under pressure. On Monday, the nursing home did not report on the patient’s condition. On Tuesday morning the doctor was informed by email about his patient’s worsening general condition. The patient had already died when the doctor was eventually called. The patient, apart from having dementia, had been considered healthy before the shot.
The canton has not yet released any detailed information about the man’s death. “We are aware of the case,” a spokesperson said, before adding that the death had been referred to Swiss drugs regulator Swissmedic.
Pfizer/BioNTech’s vaccine is the only vaccine which has been approved so far in Switzerland. The EU has has also approved the vaccine on an emergency-use basis, with the first jabs starting earlier this week.
This death follows the death of a vaccine recipient in Israel. A 75 year old man from Beit Shean died Monday morning around 2 hours after receiving the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. He had waited for the customary time at the health clinic before he was released. But when he arrived home, he lost consciousness and was later confirmed dead.
Israeli health authorities denied any link to the vaccine however: “Initial examination does not show a link between the unfortunate incident and the vaccination.”
The American drug control authority FDA (Food and Drug Administration) lists a number of side effects that can occur in the first few days in its fact sheet on the vaccine from Pfizer/Biontech. The focus is on acute allergic reactions, which now apparently also occur with the vaccine from Moderna, as the New York Times reported.
V-Safe , the reporting system for side effects of vaccines from the American disease protection agency CDC (Centers for Disease Control) shows a toxicity rate of 2,8 percent after five days for vaccination with the active ingredient from Pfizer/Biontech.
In the case of 112 807 vaccinations, some 3 150 “Health Impact Events” had occurred that made work impossible and had required medical treatment (as of December 18, 2020).
The CDC, apparently concerned by the high number of side effects, no longer publishes the figures.

Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
Care prompts bishops to criticize transgender ideology
The Catholic bishops of the Scandinavian countries presented an open five-page letter criticizing transgender ideology on March 21, just before Easter.

Brits Forced to Live in Darkness and Cold
Food prices are rising at a furious pace, fastest in Scotland in almost half a century. At the same time, energy prices are at record highs. People are forced to choose between freezing or going hungry, and a majority of Scots are forced to live in cold and darkness to cope with bills. Old generations' tricks for saving and keeping warm are returning. Nevertheless, it is feared that 10,000 Brits will die of cold homes this winter. We present the Swedish Public Health Agency's guidelines on indoor temperature. Governments in Europe are introducing rationing and monitoring of food purchases. Net-zero emissions are a lie that, in practice, de-industrializes the West and dramatically lowers our standard of living.

Dismantling diplomacy with ‘feminist foreign policy’
BudapestGerman Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock (Greens) wants to counter German security issues abroad with feminist politics.

The German ambassador to Hungary, Julia Gross, provided an embarrassing example.
