Covid-19 and Schools

After a year of remote learning, we have a growing list of issues to now address.

 

  1. Learning loss and the mental health of our students

    • I am concerned about both the learning loss and the mental health issues that our children across the district are experiencing. Returning to school full time is a priority.  I believe it can be done safely - without masks and without social distancing. I say this with confidence as a medical professional and while taking into consideration the many school districts who have been successful doing just that. Children are not at risk from COVID-19 but they are at risk from the harm of continued face-masks and from the continued fear-messaging and disruption of their lives. We must follow credible data and facts. Making decisions from a place of fear will never bode well for us or for our children.

  1. Regarding vaccinations

    • Vaccinations are a private matter between the individual and their medical provider.  Vaccinations are not a matter for our schools to decide. 

 

  1. Regarding Covid relief funds

    • WSD has received millions of dollars in Covid relief funds. We need a board that agrees on responsible spending of this influx of money.

Children and COVID-19: State Data Report

Children are not at risk from SARS-CoV-2. According to the AAP:

  • between 0.1%-1.9% of all child COVID-19 cases resulted in hospitalization

  • Children were 0.00%-0.23% of all COVID-19 deaths, and 8 states reported zero child deaths

  • In states reporting, 0.00%-0.03% of all child COVID-19 cases resulted in death

Children are at risk of harm from the investigational COVID-19 vaccines.

While VAERS data cannot be used to establish causality or frequency of events, it can be used to find red flags and safety signals. Reports include:

  • Deaths Within 0-2 Days of Injection – 2,338 (+297 From Previous Week)

  • Spontaneous Miscarriages – 652 (+81 From Previous Week)

  • Deaths In Low Risk Ages (0 to 39) – 159 (+18 From Previous Week)

  • Deaths In High Risk Ages (60 & Up) – 3,899 (+247 From Previous Week)

  • People Hospitalized Post Inoculation – 19,597 (+705 From Previous Week)

  • Emergency Room Visits – 43,848 (Not Reported Previously)

  • Life Threatening – 5,884 (+223 From Previous Week)

  • Permanent Disability – 4,583 (+284 From Previous Week)

  • Heart Attacks – 2,190 (+298 From Previous Week)

  • Heart Attacks 0 to 24 Age – 46 (+8 From Previous Week)

  • Bell’s Palsy – 1,737 (+172 From Previous Week)

  • Severe Allergic Reaction – 15,052 (+1,478 From Previous Week)

  • Stroke – 3,260 (As of 6.11.2021)

  • Paralysis – 2,419 (As of 5.7.2021)

Children are at risk of harm from face masks.

  • Mask-wearing by symptom-free individuals for hours a day, every day, is a massive human experiment. It is known that surgical and cloth masks cannot block viruses, and that if not worn and used very carefully, masks can and do cause harm.

  • Scientific Reports of Harms Caused by Face Masks: see https://informedchoicewa.org/news/scientific-reports-of-harms-caused-by-face-masks/

  • Review by Denis G. Rancourt (provided in link above) includes: physiological impacts of face masks; psychological harm in the general population; infants and school children; microbial pathogen from masks

  • “During the pandemics caused by swine flu and by the coronaviruses which caused SARS and MERS, many people in Asia and elsewhere walked around wearing surgical or homemade cotton masks to protect themselves. One danger of doing this is the illusion of protection. Surgical facemasks are designed to be discarded after single use. As they become moist they become porous and no longer protect. Indeed, experiments have shown that surgical and cotton masks do not trap the SARS‐CoV‐2 (COVID‐19) virus, which can be detected on the outer surface of the masks for up to 7 days. Thus, a pre‐symptomatic or mildly infected person wearing a facemask for hours without changing it and without washing hands every time they touched the mask could paradoxically increase the risk of infecting others.” Isaacs D, Britton P, Howard-Jones A, et al. Do facemasks protect against COVID-19?. J Paediatr Child Health. 2020;56(6):976-977. doi:10.1111/jpc.14936

  • “Conclusions This study is the first RCT of cloth masks, and the results caution against the use of cloth masks. This is an important finding to inform occupational health and safety. Moisture retention, reuse of cloth masks and poor filtration may result in increased risk of infection.” https://bmjopen.bmj.com/content/5/4/e006577

  • An Oregon girl lost her pulse for four minutes after playing basketball with a face mask. “The ER doc looked me in the eye,” Jessica Lay [mother] said, “and said, ‘This is from the mask. It’s an isolated incident. This is not due to her health, it’s from extreme physical activity and having an obstruction of oxygen.’” https://www.oregonlive.com/highschoolsports/2021/05/mother-calls-for-change-in-oregon-high-school-sports-mask-rules-after-daughter-collapses-at-basketball-tryouts.html

  • It is impossible for the general public, and especially children, to safely wear face masks for any length of time. They are continually touched, hands are not washed, the masks are not replaced when they become damp.

  • The psychological and emotional impact of continuous face mask wearing is undermining the development and health our children. The risks of the masks — which are Emergency Use Authorized only — far exceed any perceived benefit, especially for children who are not at risk of poor outcome to COVID-19.

Natural Immunity is long-lasting.

 

Treatments Exist.

  • Ivermectin has been shown to both an effective preventative and treatment and is being used globally to save lives. https://covid19criticalcare.com

  • Early home/ambulatory treatment with known treatments and protocols that include repurposed drugs and nutrients have been shown to greatly reduce hospitalizations and deaths. https://c19early.com

Doctors across the nation have been testifying before legislatures and federal agencies, calling for the adoption of early treatment as standard of care to drastically reduce hospitalizations, deaths, and the fear. https://informedchoicewa.org/news/mds-give-testimony-in-idaho-and-texas-covid-19-vitamin-d-treatments-and-vaccine-concerns/
