The BA.5 story

The takeover by this Omicron sub-variant is not pretty

The Omicron sub-variant BA.5 is the worst version of the virus that we’ve seen. It takes immune escape, already extensive, to the next level, and, as a function of that, enhanced transmissibility, well beyond Omicron (BA.1) and other Omicron family variants that we’ve seen (including BA.1.1, BA.2, BA.2.12.1, and BA.4).

Dostarlimab – Tumours disappear in all participants of small cancer drug trial

Dr Khan looks at ground-breaking results from a drug trial with a dozen rectal cancer patients in the US.

Colorectal cancer, or bowel cancer, is the third most common cancer worldwide; the third most common in men and the second most common in women.

Now a small rectal cancer drug trial, carried out in the United States, has shown extremely promising results: tumours were found to have disappeared in 100 percent of participants.

World Health Organization Finally Admits COVID Lab-Leak Theory Is A Possibility

For two years, governmental and global medical institutions like the CDC and WHO along with conmen like Anthony Fauci have been referring to the argument that Covid-19 leaked from the virology lab in Wuhan, China (the only Level 4 lab in Asia) as a “conspiracy theory.” 

For two years, the mainstream media and Big Tech social media platforms have called for outright censorship of anyone trying to discuss the evidence. 

The WHO has been an avid protector of the Chinese government and dismissed any assertions they they were involved in development of covid related viruses through gain of function research. 

Now, suddenly, the WHO is willing to give the theory a serious look and admits there are several important pieces still missing from the origin puzzle.
