Recipients of placebo jabs to have same privileges as the fully vaxxed, UK minister says

The British Vaccine Deployment Minister Nadhim Zahawi stretched the incredulity of his subjects once again by announcing that people who have received placebo jabs would be regarded as "fully vaccinated". According to Zahawi, fake shots would be considered proof of vaccination status.

    The UK government would grant the recipients of fake jabs all the privileges granted by the NHS Covid Pass, the minister said in remarks given before Parliament on Thursday, because the health pass has an “important role to play in slowing the spread of the virus”. Zahawi urged public venues to adopt the NHS app in order to “keep their clients or their customers safe”.

    The private medical information on the NHS app used to grant social participation, shows vaccination status, negative test results or natural immunity.

    Zahawi made the same nonsensical statement about fake jabs conferring privileges in two separate exchanges in Parliament after Labour MP Rupa Huq pressured Zahawi about her constituents who took part in Novavax trials. The participants were “now being treated as if they are vax deniers with the texts they get from the NHS,” she complained. She said it was on account of “xenophobia” that trial participants were being excluded. “People think that they are being punished for doing the right thing. Will the Minister rectify that?”

    Labour MP Barbara Keeley voiced a similar concern over the “wonderful volunteers” who had joined the Novavax trial.

    Zahawi responded by stating that the participants in clinical trials, including the Novavax one, would have their status on the NHS Covid app recorded as “fully vaccinated” even if they received the placebo and not the vaccine. “We are working with other countries to make sure that that is recognised, but as far as the UK is concerned, they will be considered fully vaccinated, whether they have had the placebo or the vaccine,” he promised.

    The US-based Novavax shot has not yet been given emergency use authorisation in the United Kingdom.

    Zahawi’s remarks certainly obliterate the argument for vaccines and by extension privileges for the vaccinated. Moreover, the CDC has admitted that vaccinated people have just as large amounts of virus in their nose and throat as unvaccinated. And if the virus load in infected vaccinated people cannot be distinguished from the virus load in the nose and throat of unvaccinated people, transmission is possible. Yet vaccines continue to justify privileges according to mainstream politicians.

    Austrian psychiatrist Raphael M. Bonelli, a postdoctoral researcher at Harvard Medical School, University of California, Los Angeles and Duke University, was banned from social media after he said that he knew of two deaths in his circle of friends related to the Covid vaccination.

    Conversely, according to Bonelli, he did not know anyone who died of or with Corona. His YouTube intervention on July 26, spurned 6000 comments, mostly citing similar experiences. Very few commentators reported Covid deaths in their environment. On the other hand, most described severe vaccination reactions and deaths of people they knew.

    The RPP institute, of which Raphael Bonelli is a co-founder, responded on Telegram after his video was deleted from YouTube due to “incorrect medical information”. Bonelli had explicitly stated that he did not establish any causality between vaccination and death by merely asking the question.

    Instead he warned that if 5000 users reported similar experiences, it warranted a closer look. The psychiatrist noted: “They are only subjective reports, but 5000 subjective reports are also something […] This is extremely dangerous in terms of democratic politics, it should not be this way.” Bonelli now wants to take legal action against YouTube.
