NZDSOS’s Submission On The Covid-19 Public Health Response Amendment Bill (No.2)

NZDSOS’s Submission On The Covid-19 Public Health Response Amendment Bill (No.2)

Dear Sir/Madam,

We are NZDSOS, a group of health professionals, who are concerned about the disproportionate response of the government to the COVID-19 crisis, and are particularly concerned about adverse effects from the Pfizer comirnaty mRNA injection. We write here to express our concerns about the proposed COVID-19 Public Health Response Amendment Bill (No 2).

Our principal concern is the far-reaching powers entailed in the act, that of clause 7 that is intended to replace section 11 of the original act.

This clause gives almost unlimited powers, stemming from the decision of the Minister or the Director-General to require New Zealanders to refrain from almost any activity to prevent COVID-19 infection. The clause goes on to describe how this may limit gatherings, refrain from any activity, undergo medical examination, be isolated or be detained in a specific place. The use of the term “any specific measures” gives almost no limit to the powers of the order.

The reasons for our objection to this are two-fold. In the paragraphs below, we argue that the threat of COVID-19 has been overestimated and that measures to curb COVID-19 are already having important unintended consequences in New Zealand that are being overlooked by the government. This means that the New Zealand government should now be abandoning their initial fearful response to COVID-19 rather than intensifying it. The focus, instead, should be on improving capacity in hospitals to deal with COVID-19 patients and allowing early treatment of infection.[1]

 

1. The threat of COVID-19 has been exaggerated.

The World Health Organisation has characterized the spread of COVID-19 as a global pandemic and claimed that almost 5 million people globally have died as a result of the spread of the virus. I claim that this is exaggerated since what is not stated is that the age distribution of cases of COVID-19 deaths is about the same as background mortality.[2]

Professor John Ioannidis, one of the world’s most eminent epidemiologists wrote:  “Median age of death with COVID-19 typically tracks average life expectancy in high-income countries. Life expectancy (median age of death with COVID-19) is 81 (82) in Germany, 84 (82) in Italy, 81 (85) in the UK and 79 (77) in the USA.”[3]

The median age of death with COVID-19 is in the 80s in many countries, similar to a country’s life expectancy. This has been shown both in New Zealand [4] and in Germany. [5] The reasons we believe that COVID-19 does not warrant extreme measures to contain it are outlined in a letter to the British Medical Journal.[6] Although this was written several months ago, the arguments that relate to the reasons not to curtail freedoms and take extreme measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 remain current.

Those who wish to contradict the evidence we have presented here, may point to studies that indicate that the “The average years of life lost per death [due to COVID-19] is 16 years.”[7]

However, their conclusion is incompatible with the mean age of death with covid being close to ~82 years in Western countries. If the 16 years of life lost figure claimed by Arolas et al. were true, this means that the mean age of life of people who died with COVID-19 would be close to 98 years, since, from mathematical theory, 82 + 16 = 98 years (since the mean of A + the mean of B equal the mean of the sum of A and B). This is clearly implausible.

Arolas et al. estimate years of life lost based on the difference between their average life expectancy at a given age and their age at death. This method assumes that COVID-19 deaths occur in people who are in an average state of health for their age. This is not the case from a cursory glance at the nature of New Zealand cases.

  • Average New Zealander who lives to 85 years has 6 to 7 years of life expected.
  • But, deaths with COVID-19 is not in “average” 85 year olds.
  • 73% of NZ COVID-19 deaths occurred in rest home residents (16/22; June 2020).
    • 8/14 deaths (to 20th April 2020) were residents of Rosewood Rest home (specializing in dementia care).

 

 

In the figure above, contrary to the COVID-19 death statistics, at all older age groups, those aged between 80 and 95 have between a 1/3 and 1/5 chance of living in residential care, compared to 73% of New Zealand COVID-19 deaths. COVID-19 deaths in New Zealand have occurred in people who are more likely to be in residential care and thus have other health issues that would contribute to their death. They are clearly not “average” for their age, as the authors of the study that claims a 16-year average of life lost in COVID-19 deaths claim.

Exaggeration of the nature of the extent of the COVID-19 death toll is expected since a very loose definition of COVID-19 death is being used both in NZ and overseas. From an OIA request in June,[8] it was clear that not even a positive test was required to be considered such a death in New Zealand. Covid-19 deaths in New Zealand have not been based on a definition that would indicate that they would not have otherwise died without having been exposed to the virus.[9]

Yet more evidence that supports the idea that the pandemic is severe is the finding of excess mortality in some countries, above yearly expected levels. [10] However, closer scrutiny of these patterns shows a mixed and inconsistent picture, with some countries having had many COVID-19 cases, without high overall mortality. For example, Malaysia and Singapore had respectively 475,000 and 61,000 cumulative cases respectively, yet no evidence of excess mortality. In addition, other studies show evidence that changes in healthcare, including difficulty obtaining hospital treatment, [11] overuse of invasive ventilation [12] and other changes due to lockdown policies were likely to increase mortality in people who were physically frail.

In addition to these arguments, the polymerase chain reaction test used to define COVID-19 cases in New Zealand has been devastatingly criticised as not fit for widespread clinical use.[13] Such criticisms have been upheld in landmark court decisions overseas.[14,15] The diagnostic accuracy of the test has been questioned in a German study, where PCR tests were not reliably shown to distinguish symptomatic from asymptomatic people.[16] All such limitations of individual’s rights entailed by this legislation are related to the use and interpretation of the results of this heavily criticised test.

 

2. The actions of the government to limit spread of the virus have caused excessive harm

Paediatricians in New Zealand have reported an increase in childhood psychiatric disorders, including somatization and anxiety as a result of pandemic measures. We have now published a greater than 50% increase in the rates of hospital treatment for attempted suicides in children ten to fourteen years old that occurred at the time of New Zealand’s second lockdown.[17] Unemployment has increased in New Zealand with a 30% increase in eligible adults requiring the jobseeker benefit.[18] Also, special needs grants spike at the same time as COVID-19 related lockdowns. Severe lockdowns have reported to cost the country at least one billion New Zealand dollars per week,[19] a figure that is well outside the amount usually thought to be a reasonable ceiling to prevent unreasonable spending for other health conditions.[20]

In summary, our objection to the powers outlined in the act are related to the disproportionate powers to contain a health threat that has been severely exaggerated. The powers infringe many fundamental freedoms and rights contained in the New Zealand Bill of Rights. Actions such as those that have already been undertaken in New Zealand to restrict the spread of COVID-19, we believe are disproportionate, unjustified and likely to result in further harm to both young people and working New Zealanders alike. Such powers should now be abolished rather than extended.

 

Yours sincerely,

The Rise of Totalitarianism?

Open Letter To All New Zealanders

You may have heard of NZDSOS. New Zealand Doctors Speaking Out with Science. We are a growing group of physicians, dentists and medical scientists standing up for human rights, fully informed consent and the freedom to choose, including the right to refuse medical and scientific experimentation.  We are in contact with numerous other like-minded groups of health professionals around the world as this is a global event. You can learn more about us and view the documents posted on our website at www.nzdsos.com.

 

We are writing to you today because our country is facing an unprecedented situation that may completely shatter your perception of the ongoing pandemic, unless you are well acquainted with information lying outside the relentless narrative of the mainstream media and government sources.

 

For over 18 months now we have all been bombarded with news about a deadly and highly infectious novel coronavirus that justified unprecedented restrictions and expenses in order to saves lives at all costs. We have been told that the only solution to this deadly pandemic is the mass injection of a novel experimental type of gene therapy based on artificial mRNA and that this double injection is “safe and very effective”. Accepting this double injection will then allow everyone and everything to return to normalcy, including the ability to travel and congregate freely…. You may have chosen to get the injection(s), trusting in the information given to you, or you may have been coerced in accepting these injection(s), told of the dire consequences to you, to your precious others, to your life, occupation, freedom and prosperity should you not comply. After all it is happening all over the world, and it is all over the media that we listen to everyday…. Except that something is not right…

 

  • You many have noticed that in NZ there is rarely any good news about the so-called pandemic.
  • You may have noticed that countries with high vaccination rates are still undergoing restrictions, mask mandates and ongoing travel and work disruptions.
  • You may have noticed that new “variants” keep appearing to cause more fear and more (alleged) deaths.
  • You may have noticed that more injections will likely now be recommended.
  • You may have noticed that there is always something that comes up to keep the fear going.

 

So, what is really happening? There is indeed a very serious crisis. However it is not what you have been led to believe… We understand that this will come as a shock to many of you. What if we told you that we have all been lied to? A look at what is happening in Israel will give you an idea of what may be coming to New Zealand in the near future, if we allow it to happen. “Israeli officials, however, have recently been caught admitting that in many situations the pass system is not “medically justified,” but exists to pressure more citizens into getting vaccinated.”

 

The harsh truth is there is a crime of unprecedented proportion currently unfolding. A crime that, at its core, has nothing to do with our health. A very serious crisis that has been unleashed upon humanity. It is entirely man-made and driven by a fear-based narrative designed to gradually take away our freedoms and prosperity.  This crisis has been planned carefully over decades by private corporations and supranational organisations to which our governments, knowingly or not, have become subservient.

 

Part of the reason that the crisis has been able to be perpetuated is that “COVID-19” is not even a definable clinical condition by usually accepted medical practice. Although we were initially warned of a Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome illness being spread it has become patently obvious that a typical “case” is far removed from this picture. Reading the WHO’s case definition document makes it clear that a confirmed “case” is simply, “a person with a positive Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT)” (i.e. a positive PCR test). The other test used is the SARS-CoV-2 Antigen-RDT,  is tied to the PCR and has zero established diagnostic specificity regarding a clinical condition known as “COVID-19. It must be kept in mind that indirect molecular detection tests do not require the presence of a virus or any infectious agent to be “positive”.”

 

A Cochrane Review published on 7 July 2020 concluded that: “Based on currently available data, neither absence nor presence of signs or symptoms are accurate enough to rule in or rule out disease.” [1] Additionally, because there are no confirmatory investigations outside of the PCR to diagnose “COVID-19”, it means that “cases” (and deaths) are being classified in this manner irrespective of the clinical picture. The situation gets worse because the PCR protocols have only been developed with regards to analytical specificity i.e. how specifically they amplify a target sequence in the laboratory.[2] They have no established diagnostic specificity, so are meaningless tests with regards to clinical use.[3] The NZ Ministry of Health is either unaware of this crucial problem or has been disingenuous with their responses to requests for clarification.

 

NZDSOS member and author Dr. Samantha Bailey has produced several videos outlining the problems of using the PCR for diagnostics and the problematic case definition of “COVID-19”. The response from NZ medical authorities has included attempts to have her videos removed through coercion, including threats against her practicing certificate. Similarly, when NZDSOS first went public with our concerns about the Pfizer Comirnaty injection, the response from the Medical Council was a thinly veiled threat.  Whatever your personal opinions about “COVID-19” might be, we urge you to think carefully about such unprecedented measures being taken by the authorities to push a single narrative. Does it seem we are in an open society when health practitioners carrying out their own research are being threatened after questioning the decisions coming from a chosen few?

 

Even if the policy makers in NZ are oblivious to many of the factors that have led to this current crisis it does not explain why some of these factors have been dismissed as “conspiracy theories” when many of them are easily verified. A U.S. legal action filed on 19 July 2021 is a must read.[4] In a detailed report titled “The Fauci-COVID-19 Dossier” Dr. David Martin outlines the various industry participants who were setting themselves up to benefit from an engineered pandemic.  Dr. Martin’s report reveals thousands of patents that were taken out with regards to SARS-coronaviruses and ways to commercialise a coronavirus “pandemic”. It includes evidence of the planning of the “novel” mRNA injections for profit, years before the public had ever heard of “COVID-19”. On April 19, 2021 Dr. Martin provided a deposition to Dr. Reiner Fuellmich’s team as part of the collation of evidence regarding a criminal conspiracy.    Dr. Fuellmich is an international trial lawyer who has successfully sued large fraudulent corporations like Volkswagen and Deutsche Bank. His worldwide network of lawyers has deposed over 110 experts from every relevant field of science. They have collected undeniable evidence that the Covid pandemic is in fact a planned criminal operation. The evidence is irrefutable and mounting. The day of reckoning is coming.

 

Dr. Fuellmich stated in an interview with France-Soir that they are 100% certain that they can prove in courts of law that there is no real pandemic (NB: begins at 13 minutes of the interview) and he further explains what is happening in a speech he made on the 24 July 2021. (NB: In this video Dr Fuellmich state that Singapore has removed coronavirus restrictions.  Singapore did re-introduce restrictions on 22 July 2021.) The New Zealand government would not want you to know that some countries and states are now admitting the futility and damage caused by the COVID responses and the needless vaccination roll-outs.[5] [6]

 

Depending on how much you already know, it will take time for you to digest this information.

It may trigger a phenomena referred to as cognitive dissonance, and you may choose to reject completely or in part this information, and continue to believe what the government and its propaganda is telling you. You may instead choose to open your mind to any new information and seek the truth. The first path is easier. However, the consequences are dire for your future. The second path is a tentative start in a journey of discovery. What will follow may be initially more difficult and requires research, introspection, intuition, and courage…. It is the path to freedom, happiness and prosperity.

 

To find it you will need to accept that the government and the mainstream media are not your friends. Both of these groups, either through naïveté or complicit behaviour have failed the people catastrophically and are engaged in ongoing propaganda campaigns against the citizens of New Zealand. There are effective solutions, and they are NOT the mass injection of a novel experimental gene therapy vector.  Fear is borne out of ignorance and lack of awareness. Become aware and do not fear. All of us, together, we are the sovereign people of New Zealand. We are the collective owners of this country, and we will prevail against those who wish to exert control over us. Now is the time – either to be part of those who are perpetrating harms (following orders has never been an acceptable excuse) or to join those who are standing up and speaking out. Which side of history do you want to be on?

 

None of all this surprises students of 20th century history, where at least a hundred million people where murdered by their own marxist governments. The instinct for murderous totalitarian repression is part of the makeup of a small group of humans, best recent examples being Trotsky, Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot and Mao. Common factors that gain their population’s initial buy-in involve demonising a small group of people who would be ideologically resistant to loss of freedom, and blaming them for the ills of society: the greedy royals, the filthy jews, intellectuals, landowners and professional farmers, and now the selfished unvaxxed.

 

In all cases, the complicit populations realise too late they are duped and the promised utopia is trampled by terror, paranoia, deprivation and division. Behind every regime mentioned, investing in the death camps and gulags and perhaps now vaccines, have been sociopathic banking and corporate interests, as immune to the suffering of others as their chosen front men and women. As Mark Twain said ” History may not repeat but it sure does rhyme ” and we for one do not want to be just another eye roll for future chroniclers of of humanity’s adolescence. It’s time now for Aotearoa/New Zealand to prove our species has an instinct for a golden future, as did Rosa Parkes, Ghandi, MLK, Mandela and many nameless others whose simple acts of resistance inspired whole nations and elevated history. Together we are unstoppable, no matter how much money is behind the curtain.

 

At NZDSOS we have become aware of what is happening, and we welcome you to join us by:

  1. Signing the NZDSOS declaration: https://nzdsos.com/declaration/
  2. Confidentially emailing our dentist and doctor hotline: https://nzdsos.com/confidential-help-for-doctors-and-dentists/ so we can all stand together to protect open discussion, and defense of our rights and freedoms.

 

Sincerely.
