Palau - a COVID Success Story
Draconian measures and the best vaccination rate in the world is how Palau achieved ZERO COVID.
Luckily, Palau is in the middle of nowhere so keeping COVID out with strict border controls, zealous testing and all the other
silly social distancing measures ensured they had not one single COVID case before becoming one of the first countries in the world to start their “vaccination” campaign. As enthusiastically reported by CNN:
But then a tourist from Guam tested positive in May 2021.
Which was weird.
Because, according to the Government (my emphasis):
The person had arrived in the country from Guam on May 9, fully vaccinated and had two negative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests prior to boarding the flight. The person had also tested negative three times, but tested positive on Day 21 of quarantine.
I mean, seriously? Double jabbed and double tested before boarding? I bet they wore two fricking masks as well! Then four more tests and three weeks of quarantine to finally test positive? Is it just me, or is there something not quite right here?
Anyway, undeterred by this, er…, anomaly, Palau forged ahead with its own jabbing campaign, gleefully attaining its position in the very highest echelons of world jabbers. This feat was achieved with the generous support of US Operation Warp Speed.
By mid-October 2021, 99% of the entire Palau population of 18,000 or so aged 12 and over were jabbed.
“In spite” of this vaccination success story, less than three months later, Palau had its first major COVID outbreak, registering almost 4,000 cases, more than 20% of the population.
Even more strange is that when Palau finally dropped its requirement for a negative PCR test or proof of COVID recovery on entry, rather than cases exploding, they disappeared. Completely. It’s almost as if you don’t know you’ve got COVID in most cases unless you test for it?
But they still insist that you are jabbed or you can’t come in:
Because the vaccine is obviously working so well - apart from not stopping transmission throughout the entire vaccinated population or saving anyone from dying of the disease - not that bit. No matter.
Even the Red Cross said so:
It is important to celebrate the success of reaching high vaccination rates in many Pacific countries, including Palau, Fiji and the Cook Islands, which is saving lives and helping people to rejuvenate their livelihoods shattered by this pandemic.
“While the pace of vaccination has been remarkable in some countries, it is critical that vaccines doses are made available to every country across the Pacific so the doses can be delivered quickly.
“Building vaccine confidence is vital in the Pacific to make sure we reach a critical mass of people vaccinated in all countries. With restrictions easing, it is important we achieve even higher vaccinations and keep up public health measures.
No one is safe until we are all safe.”
On the other hand, “neighbouring” Papua New Guinea, with virtually no-one at all vaccinated, is a COVID disaster waiting to happen, according to “news website of the year”, The Guardian, also citing the Red Cross.
Al Jazeera reported that vaccination rates in Papua New Guinea were poor due to misinformation and conspiracy theories like “you can still get COVID” if you’re vaccinated. Crazy, right?!
Strangely, neither The Red Cross, The Guardian, Al Jazeera, nor any other mainstream media for that matter has commented on the fact that, on a per capita basis and on the same relative scale as Palau, COVID is imperceptible in Papua New Guinea:
Which is weird.
But don’t worry, Palau is leading the agenda for net zero carbon. Perhaps they’ll have better luck next time?
Apologies for the misleading title and subtitle. I started off by researching evidence to support what all the media was reporting about Pacific posterchild, Palau, and forgot to completely change the narrative when there was none at all.
Oh well. It’s not like anyone died or anything, is it? Is it?
Hmmmm… I guess I’m probably not welcome in Palau any time soon then? One more to cross off the bucket list. You could imagine the conversation at immigration?
Immigration Officer: You can’t come in because you aren’t vaccinated.
Me: But a fully vaccinated person came in and spread COVID to more than one fifth of the island who are also all fully vaccinated.
Immigration Officer: It would have been much worse.
Me: I’ll get my bags.
I might be forced to retract this article after this insightful counter argument from a diligent reader:
What do you think?
My Story - Revised: I suspect I am one of a small group of non-scientists, who in 2020 decided to rely on innate immunity boosted by healthy eating and a well thought out nutraceutical blend, such as ETPs and other common sense actions (based on past medical research and observation), being suggested by Frontline Doctors and Scientists. I felt this would be safer than sitting on my hands, or subscribing to seemingly crazy mandates (backed with suspect research), being rushed out alongside a fast growing censorship campaign. The subsequent Jabs churned out at the speed of science were yet to appear.
Leading up to jab release day and after listening to dozens (perhaps even 100’s), of incredibly brave, highly qualified, senior and independent scientists, I concluded it would be a miracle if any experi-mental jab could improve significantly (if at all), on innate natural immunity, especially in low risk individuals. After all, healthy humans evolved over millennia with an incredible immune system evolved to protect us from millions of viruses and bacteria.
The early data showed this was a low risk virus for the healthy, in almost every age group. The cruise ships (giant petri-dishes), showed the same! I considered the ongoing failure/shortcomings of the Flu jab, which after decades is still only 15% - 30% effective. Given the MSM-Government exaggerations of the last 2 years I suspect that data might also be highly questionable! Besides, I've never taken a Flu Jab and have only caught Flu once, maybe twice in 50 years!
Nevertheless in Dec 2020 I was almost taken in by MSM claims! Most (if not all of which) are now proven beyond reasonable doubt, to have been (at best), exaggerated! Within 4 to 6 weeks after the roll out started, I was seeing early evidence emerging that the jab could be a dangerous, even fatal intervention! Again using science, data and common sense I balanced the low risk documented WRT virus in healthy people, and decided to stay well away from jabs. I backed my personal health decision with safe and sensible ETPs evolving globally from highly qualified teams of frontline line medical professionals. My medicine cabinet was now full of inexpensive, NON-GMO, organic, certified nutraceuticals extracted from quality food sources. Despite being an extremely sociable person I have remained safe and healthy throughout. When I eventually caught Covid in March 2021 it was less than a very mild cold lasting little more than 3 to 5 days. Ironically I caught it in the middle of a strict lockdown towards the end of winter and not when I was busy socialising! Go figure!
It seems a significant number of people (IMO way over 50%), now realise the jabs were neither safe nor effective and many more than this are now refusing the 3rd or at least the 4th booster. I often joke with friends they have effectively become anti ‘this’ jab conspiracy theorists! At the very least their dogmatic faith in Pharma is well and truly shaken!
Lessons Learnt Or Not:
IMO it should be a crime to try and censor independent science and debate. Of course if people want to ignore certain sources of information that’s fine, their choice. IMO organisations seeking to exclude or damage the reputations of highly qualified senior scientists and healthcare professionals should be criminally charged and damages awarded.
If people want to take a health intervention (cough syrup, headache tablet, etc), that is their decision. However profit making interventions that are not transparently proven to be safe or effective, should not be paid for by taxpayers. Surely that money is better spent on improving our healthcare system (now struggling), and teaching people how to strengthen their immune systems! Of course this would not be profitable for drug companies, but it would be much better for people genuinely in need of serious healthcare interventions! At the end of the day if people still want this intervention and can afford it then they should have to pay for it. As for Pharma they should be forced to sell it at close to cost. We (they) are all in it together! And the taxes (and or insurance), can be used to cover the injuries and deaths it causes.
Anyway if after reading this people are still not prepared to engage, listen, learn and debate independent scientists, then let’s close with some inspiring music!
“No one is safe until we’re all safe” 🤮
