Pfizer former VP claims pandemic effectively over, vaccine not needed
New Delhi: While pharmaceutical major Pfizer had made headlines on the release of their Covid-19 vaccine, its former Vice President and Chief Scientist has said that there is no need for any vaccines to bring the pandemic to an end.
According to a report from lifesitenews.com, Dr Michael Yeadon, there is absolutely no need for vaccines to extinguish the pandemic. I've never heard such nonsense talked about vaccines.
"You do not vaccinate people who aren't at risk from the disease. You also don't set about planning to vaccinate millions of fit and healthy people with a vaccine that hasn't been extensively tested on human subjects," Yeadon said.
His comments come at the end of a comprehensive criticism of the Scientific Advisor Group for Emergencies (SAGE), a government agency of the UK.tasked with advising the central government in emergencies.
SAGE has played a predominant role in determining public lockdown policies in the UK, including those recently implemented, as a response to the Covid-19 virus, according to lifesitenews.com.
Yeadon also highlights fundamental errors by SAGE in their presuppositions which cause their overall conclusions to go radically awry leading to the "torturing the population for the last seven months or so."
SAGE says everyone was susceptible and only seven have been infected. I think this is literally unbelievable. They have ignored all precedent in the field of immunological memory against respiratory viruses," he said.
"They have either not seen or disregarded excellent quality work from numerous, world-leading clinical immunologists which show that around 30 percent of the population had prior immunity," Yeadon added.
Last Friday, Pfizer had announced it is seeking emergency approval from US regulators for its Covid-19 vaccine, which has shown 95 percent efficacy in a totality of two data sets released in the last 10 days.
