Leaders in countries like Canada, New Zealand, Austria and Australia are still hellbent on doing their utmost to force individuals to be covid jabbed, whether they consent or not.
Below we have another smorgasbord of news items from around the world bringing a round up of the good, the not so good, and the interesting to bring you up to date without having to trawl the internet. Do please share with your networks by clicking on the share links above.

In New Zealand, a convoy reached the Parliament building and blocked surrounding areas.

- Spanish pharmacovigilance expert, Dr Joan-Ramon Laporte Roselló, spoke at the Spanish Congress recently to warn against continued use of covid jabs. He said the mRNA jabs are drugs based on a technology never used until now and that the mass vaccination of the population is a “global experiment with precedent in the history of mankind”. He also told the Congress there is no evidence the jabs protect against omicron and booster jabs are not justified for children and young people

- As the UK government appears to have stepped back from mandating covid jabs for healthcare workers a letter signed by the Chief Nursing Office, Chief Midwifery Officer, Medical Directors and others along with Prof Chris Whitty, has been sent to all NHS staff pushing them to get jabbed. There are fears that the government may try to implement mandates through the back-door by requiring jabs as part of people’s professional registration, to move between care trusts, for promotions or new positions.
- Up to a third of those who tested positive for covid by PCR test were not contagious and should not have had to self-isolate. UK researchers using data from 300 Freedom of Information requests from WhatDoTheyKnow have published a report on Collateral Global, which found significant issues in the way laboratories ran tests, a lack of validation of results and huge variables in the number of cycles used to create results, which were then used to force people into self-isolation even though they were not infectious.
- The covid jab programme in schools in Northern Ireland has been terminated following a Judicial Review challenge, removing the ability of children to be jabbed without the knowledge of their parents or their consent. A further hearing on the matter will take place on the 21st March 2022

Please sign the petition to remove the provisions that target lawful expression and protect UK citizens Freedom of Speech.

- Pushback against mandated jabs continues with the publication of correspondence in The Lancet by an infectious disease specialist from the University of Colarado, Carlos Franco-Paredes. He writes that the ability of vaccinated people to spread the SARS-CoV-2 virus is not significantly different from that of jab-free people thereby negating the scientific rationale for jab mandates
- Researchers publishing in Cell have found the mRNA from covid jabs in germinal cells of lymph nodes up to 60 days (the length of testing by the researchers) following injection. They also report finding the mRNA from the jabs outside of the lymph nodes. Of most concern is the finding that levels of spike protein in jabbed people are higher than if they were sick with covid. This suggests that production of the spike protein is not being turned off as has been suggested by Pfizer and Moderna.
- Natural Immunity trumps that provided by covid jabs. A recent report from the CDC shows natural immunity against covid was at least three times as effective at protecting against infection and hospitalisation from the delta variant.
- Daily Mail health correspondent, Barry Calman, has been up to his old tricks again following news that actor turned politician, Laurence Fox, is using ivermectin to help him combat covid. Despite an hour long conversation with Dr Tess Lawrie to discuss the merits of ivermectin, how it can help prevent severe covid illness along with the presentation of supporting evidence, Calman has, as always, dismissed such evidence instead promoting the proclamations of disgraced researcher Andrew Hill, who changed the conclusions on an ivermectin study to satisfy his funders and discredit ivermectin’s use for covid
- A new study published on the preprint server, Researchgate, using data from Itajaí in Brazil, has found not using ivermectin prophylactically against covid resulted in a significantly increased risk of dying from covid
- In a highly unusual move, but one that seems to be increasingly used to discredit ivermectin studies supporting its use as a covid treatment, another preprint paper has been removed by the preprint server hosting it. SocArXiv withdrew a paper from a the team studying the use of ivermectin in Mexico City that found a significant reduction in hospitalisation of covid patients that used a kit containing ivermectin, saying the work is misleading
- Covid patients treated with vitamin D3 in the form of extended release calcifediol (ERC) experienced increased serum levels of vitamin D and improved recovery times according to a new preprint study from researchers in the US
- The findings of the previously mentioned study support those of a new study published in PLOS One from researchers in Israel who found patients with higher levels of vitamin D are at lower risk of serious illness or death from covid.
- An international treaty on pandemics? The World Health Organization (WHO) has kickstarted a process that would potentially allow it to override the constitutions of member states in the event of another pandemic. Following a Special Session of the Health Assembly in December a decision entitled “The World Together’ was adopted establishing an intergovernmental negotiating body designed to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response, but which could potentially further remove citizens rights and freedoms
- Sir Jeremy Farrar is to be interviewed under oath by the US Congress over concerns he was at the centre of a cover up of the origins of the SARS-CoV-2 virus after he was instrumental in the publication of a letter in The Lancet in February 2020 dismissing claims the virus originated in a lab. The Congressional Committee will question him over his conflicts of interest and attempts to suppress scientific discussion
- Scientists in the UK have carried out a small human challenge trial in which people were deliberately exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Just over half (53%) of those that were exposed to the virus developed symptoms. The use of human challenge trials remains controversial however
- Pregnant women are being put under significant pressure to be jabbed against covid despite a paucity of safety data. A Daily Sceptic reader who is herself pregnant took a look at data related to maternal covid deaths and found a somewhat different story to the one being pushed by mainstream media and medical personnel
- A new preprint study from Spain looking at the transmissibility of the omicron variant of covid found covid jabs did not appear to reduce the spread of the virus.
