We all know that children are virtually immune to SARS-CoV-2. In fact, current data from Stasta says that children under the age of 18 only account for 0.05% of deaths in the U.S (or 1/2000). As it turns out, new data shows that the threat might be even lower than previously thought.
According to the study, children 18 and under have a 99.995% survival rate when it comes to COVID-19. To put that into perspective, 324 children have died from coronavirus since the pandemic began 18 months ago. That’s an average of 216 per year. Meanwhile, it’s estimated that about 1,800 children will die from cancer this year – in the U.S. alone. Over 12,000 die from accidents. During the 2018-2019 flu season, there were 186 pediatric deaths attributed to influenza.
Now, I am certainly not discounting the death of even one human being, much less an innocent child. But it’s important that we analyze the data as we make decisions about our children and health policies. As the effort to vaccinate children reaches a fevered pitch, let’s take a look at what this new research means.
[For the record, the three studies, by researchers in the U.K. reviewing its national health system’s medical records or pulling together data from other countries, were published on preprint servers Thursday. The studies haven’t yet been reviewed by independent experts and are preliminary.]
The studies provide some of the most detailed analysis yet of severe illness and death from Covid-19 in children, a closely watched subject as schools prepare for a new academic year and parents decide whether to have their children vaccinated if shots are cleared for younger ages. One of the studies focused only on deaths, while the other two examined the risks of severe illness and death.
Researchers previously had found the risk of severe illness and death from Covid-19 among children under 18 years was relatively low. The new studies confirm the findings, adding to the weight of evidence as policy makers and school officials make decisions about mask-wearing and physical distancing.
“Having a larger and larger database…adds a lot to our ability to make important decisions,” said Dr. Rick Malley, an infectious-diseases specialist at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, who wasn’t involved in the studies. The study examining the risk of death is “certainly one of the largest studies I’ve seen,” he said.
For the three new studies, researchers looked at various medical and study data for children of different ages for periods since the coronavirus pandemic started.
Researchers conducting the death study analyzed several national databases to identify children under 18 across England who had died from Covid-19 in the first year of the pandemic, from March 1, 2020, to Feb. 28, 2021.
Underlying health conditions, especially serious brain or nerve-related disabilities, increased the risk of dying of Covid-19, according to the study looking at child deaths.
Fifteen of the 25 children in England who died because of Covid-19 during the period examined had underlying serious illnesses, the researchers said, while four had chronic underlying conditions. The researchers didn’t specify the serious illnesses or chronic conditions, but said that children with a combination of neurological and respiratory-linked conditions were at the greatest risk of death.
Three of the deaths were due to multisystem inflammatory syndrome, a serious complication of infection where different body parts can become inflamed. Six of the children who died due to Covid-19 didn’t appear to have an underlying health condition, researchers said.
And that checks out; remember when the CDC admitted to inflating the death count? It was revealed that only 6% of reported deaths from SARS-CoV-2 came without a comorbidity or underlying condition.
“For deaths with pre-existing conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death,” they say. (You can look at the official data here.)
Back in May, NPR reported that children’s risk for serious illness from COVID-19 is the same as the common flu:
To date, out of more than 74 million children in the United States, there have been about 300 COVID-19 deaths and a few thousand serious illnesses. By comparison, the CDC registered 188 flu-related deaths in children during the 2019-2020 flu season. (This past year, there was essentially no flu season at all.)
Hospitalization numbers look worse for COVID-19. But those numbers are inflated as a result of the CDC’s reporting rules. The CDC requires every child admitted to a hospital to be tested for the coronavirus.
Dr. Roshni Mathew, a pediatric infectious disease specialist at the Stanford University School of Medicine, says experience at her hospital found that 45% of the time, a child who tested positive for the coronavirus was not actually sick with COVID-19. The findings have been published online in the journal Hospital Pediatrics.
In those cases, hospitalization was due to “a completely unrelated diagnosis, like appendicitis or femur fracture or something else,” she says.
For children in particular, the risk of serious consequences from COVID-19 is the same magnitude as the risk they face from the flu, she says.
So why is there such a strong push to vaccinate our kids?
For example, Taiwan is set to receive 10 million doses of the vaccine. At an average price of $21, that amounts to a quick $210 million in revenue for manufacturers. Of course, these companies hope to make even more in the near future.
Under one pandemic supply deal, Pfizer is charging the U.S. $19.50 per dose, said CFO Frank D’Amelio, which is “not a normal price like we typically get for a vaccine—$150, $175 per dose. So, pandemic pricing.”
Pfizer has said it expects $15 billion from its COVID-19 vaccine this year, but if the company charges higher prices after the pandemic, it could continue to reap significant sales from the product in the years to come, particularly if routine boosters are needed as variants arise.
This isn’t about public health; it’s about money.
Pfizer’s market cap is up more than 21% since a year ago. BioNTech is up 176%. Moderna is up 275.55%.
These corrupt companies are making BILLIONS on an experimental vaccine that is untested and unnecessary.
Once again, they’re targeting our children to increase the bottom line.
VAERS data through July 7th lists 9,048 deaths associated with the “vaccine” (remember: only about 2% of adverse reactions are actually reported).
The kids are alright.
