Here’s the Reuter’s article on Sweden and the COVID vaccines:
Sweden Decides Against Recommending COVID Vaccines for Kids Aged 5-11
STOCKHOLM, Jan 27 (Reuters) – (This Jan. 27 story corrects headline to kids aged 5-11 from 5-12)
Sweden has decided against recommending COVID vaccines for kids aged 5-11, the Health Agency said on Thursday, arguing that the benefits did not outweigh the risks.
“With the knowledge we have today, with a low risk for serious disease for kids, we don’t see any clear benefit with vaccinating them,” Health Agency official Britta Bjorkholm told a news conference.
She added that the decision could be revisited if the research changed or if a new variant changed the pandemic. Kids in high-risk groups can already get the vaccine.
Sweden registered more than 40,000 new cases on Jan. 26, one of the highest daily numbers during the pandemic, despite limited testing. While the forth wave has seen daily infection records shattered, the healthcare is not under the same strain as during previous waves.
On Thursday 101 patients with COVID required intensive care, well below the more than 400 patients during spring 2021. In total, nearly 16,000 people have died of COVID in Sweden since the pandemic started.
Sweden’s government on Wednesday extended restrictions, which included limited opening hours for restaurants and an attendance cap for indoor venues, for two weeks but said it hoped to remove them on Feb.
Sweden couldn’t find any benefit of the COVID vaccines since the rates of serious disease are so low.
Here in the US, we can’t find any benefit either, but that doesn’t matter. In fact, the risk-benefit analysis is strongly negative. Here’s the risk benefit analysis for kids in the US done by Dr. Toby Rogers:
We will kill 117 kids to save one child from dying from COVID in the 5 to 11 age range
Dr. Toby Rogers writes a popular substack looking at risk benefit issues.
In a recent article that I hope everyone will read or at least skim, he concluded: “So, to put it simply, the Biden administration plan would kill 5,248 children via Pfizer mRNA shots in order to save 45 children from dying of coronavirus…
Nobody wants to discuss this analysis.
According to this article, U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy in fact thinks that nobody should even know about analyses like this.
They are smart. They know that censorship is the only option when you don’t have any of the facts on your side.
I really think Rogan should invite Murthy on his show. I predict Murthy will decline. What do you think?
