  1. The comments by Wiles were clearly defamatory, and I hope the Professors she defamed sue her.

    I also hope her employer, The University of Auckland, dismisses her for bringing the institution into disrepute.


  2. Can we expect an apology and clarification from both Wiles and Stuff anytime soon? Can this be considered either disinformation or misinformation from both media and Wiles, (considering they are the first ones to make accusations of others)?

    DTNZ, thank you for your continued reporting of the events we want to know about and of which others will not mention.

  3. Sadly this government are only interested in seeking advice from woke academics who wish to trash other genuine experts.
    I have copied the comments made by Ms Wiles below as follows:

    “If we can stop people spreading the virus, then we can stop Omicron. And the more we do to stop transmission, the quicker it will be over.”

    This in my opinion shows she is living in cloud cuckoo land suggesting ” we can stop Omnicron ” . This shows a naivety of reality to support Jacinda’s approach which has been found wanting.

    Yes she should be sacked for a disgraceful attack on her fellow academics but I doubt there will be any reprimand for her actions.

    When you look at Jacinda’s advisers they show an appalling lack of judgement and poor advice but no doubt they all support her Marxist agenda !

    8,817 COVID Vaccine Injuries Reported to CDC Among Kids 5 to 11, as Study Shows Pfizer Vaccine Only 12% Effective in That Age Group

    VAERS data released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention included a total of 1,151,450 reports of adverse events from all age groups following COVID vaccines, including 24,827 deaths and 200,331 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020, and Feb. 25, 2022.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today released new data showing a total of 1,151,450 reports of adverse events following COVID vaccines were submitted between Dec. 14, 2020, and Feb. 25, 2022, to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S.

    The data included a total of 24,827 reports of deaths — an increase of 425 over the previous week — and 200,331 reports of serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 4,128 compared with the previous week.

    Excluding “foreign reports” to VAERS, 774,373 adverse events, including 11,312 deaths and 74,257 serious injuries, were reported in the U.S. between Dec. 14, 2020, and Feb. 25,

    Foreign reports are reports foreign subsidiaries send to U.S. vaccine manufacturers. Under U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations, if a manufacturer is notified of a foreign case report that describes an event that is both serious and does not appear on the product’s labeling, the manufacturer is required to submit the report to VAERS.

    Of the 11,312 U.S. deaths reported as of Feb. 25, 18% occurred within 24 hours of vaccination, 22% occurred within 48 hours of vaccination and 60% occurred in people who experienced an onset of symptomswithin 48 hours of being vaccinated.

    In the U.S., 552 million COVID vaccine doses had been administered as of Feb. 25, including 325 million doses of Pfizer, 208 million doses of Moderna and 18 million doses of Johnson & Johnson (J&J).
    Every Friday, VAERS publishes vaccine injury reports received as of a specified date. Reports submitted to VAERS require further investigation before a causal relationship can be confirmed. Historically, VAERS has been shown to report only 1% of actual vaccine adverse events.

    U.S. VAERS data from Dec. 14, 2020, to Feb. 25, 2022, for 5- to 11-year-olds show:

    8,817 adverse events, including 200 rated as serious and 4 reported deaths.

    The most recent death involves an 8-year-old boy (VAERS I.D. 2109625) from Mississippi who died 7 days after his second dose of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine when he was found blue and lifeless at home.

    He was taken to the hospital with a full code in process. A pulse was detected several times, but the boy ultimately died in the ICU. It was reported to the doctor who filed the report that the boy died from multisystem inflammatory syndrome. He did not have COVID.

    17 reports of myocarditis and pericarditis (heart inflammation).32 reports of blood clotting disorders.

    U.S. VAERS data from Dec. 14, 2020, to Feb. 25, 2022, for 12- to 17-year-olds show:

    29,797 adverse events, including 1,714 rated as serious and 39 reported deaths.

    The most recent death involves a 13-year-old girl (VAERS I.D. 2115839) from Wisconsin who was severely compromised and received two doses of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine. Although the cause of death wasn’t clear, she appeared to have significant health issues, respiratory distress and heart problems.

    69 reports of anaphylaxis among 12- to 17-year-olds where the reaction was life-threatening, required treatment or resulted in death — with 96% of cases
    attributed to Pfizer’s vaccine.648 reports of myocarditis and pericarditis with 631 cases attributed to Pfizer’s vaccine.159 reports of blood clotting disorders, with all cases attributed to Pfizer.

    U.S. VAERS data from Dec. 14, 2020, to Feb. 25, 2022, for all age groups combined, show:

    19% of deaths were related to cardiac disorders.54% of those who died were male, 41% were female and the remaining death reports did not include the gender of the deceased.The average age of death was 72.6.As of Feb. 25, 5,176 pregnant womenreported adverse events related to COVID vaccines, including 1,653 reports of miscarriage or premature birth.Of the 3,587 cases of Bell’s Palsyreported, 51% were attributed to Pfizervaccinations, 40% to Moderna and 8% to J&J.853 reports of Guillain-Barré syndrome, with 41% of cases attributed to Pfizer, 30% to Moderna and 28% to J&J.2,339 reports of anaphylaxis where the reaction was life-threatening, required treatment or resulted in death.1,621 reports of myocardial infarction.13,320 reports of blood clotting disorders in the U.S. Of those, 5,946 reports were attributed to Pfizer, 4,744 reports to Moderna and 2,568 reports to J&J.4,060 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis with 2,505 cases attributed to Pfizer, 1,373 cases to Moderna and 172 cases to J&J’s COVID vaccine.

    Pfizer vaccine only 12% effective in kids 5 to 11, study says

    A study released Monday showed the effectiveness of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine in 5- to 11-year-olds was only 12% after a seven-week period of observation. Yet, the authors of the study still recommended the vaccine for that age group, stating it was protective against severe disease.They also proposed the recommended dose for 5- to 11-year-olds was too small, suggesting a higher dose might solve the problem.

    Some scientists at the CDC and FDA pushed for the data to be made public before an FDA meeting, scheduled for Feb. 15, to review Pfizer’s application for Emergency Use Authorization of a three-dose regimen of its vaccine for infants and children 6 months to 5 years old — but the study’s findings were only made public this week.

    The FDA on Feb. 11 abruptly postponed the meeting to review Pfizer’s application for infants and children under 5, stating Pfizer didn’t have enough data on the efficiency of a third dose for that age group.

    In an article published March 1, Dr. Madhava Setty, senior science editor at The Defender, examined the data in the study and outlined two flaws in the authors’ conclusions: 1) that the vaccines prevent severe disease in this age group, and 2) that increasing the dose might be appropriate

    • Covid has killed 1 in every 400 Americans. Even taking your numbers at face value, which you shouldn’t, the vaccine has killed 1 in 25000 of those who have taken it, and saved at least 400,000. So thanks for demonstrating it’s effectiveness.

        • The figures fir vaccine deaths are from the lengthy cut and paste from PT above. They’re an overcount though, correct. Covid death stats are from John’s Hopkins University. Are they in on the conspiracy?

      • That’s pure speculation, a theory at best. A conspiracy or fraud. Nothing which supports those numbers. You must’ve dreamt it in your sleep Bolter. Or predicted it on your graph.

      • Those numbers have been corrected. A war of words, people dyeing ‘with’ covid. Lots of very old people etc… keep up doll.

        • Sorry, you’re right. Covid has killed 1 in 320 Americans, not 1 in 400, (see worldometer website) and the reported vaccine deaths are a massive over count as they include people dying of unrelated causes. So yes, vaccination is a no brainer, given the observed and massive reduction in Covid related deaths among the vaccinated population since the rollout.

  5. Yeah, there’s a reason for that hair colour. I used to laugh at people who don’t like clowns, now I get it.

    Pure cringe every time they had jacinda’s court jester on camera for her “eXpeRt” opinion.

    • Yep with hair like that, i’m imagining a fairy dress and a fairy wand in it’s left hand.
      I’m sorry I just cant take the over paid puppet seriously!

  6. No surprises she’s in stuff n nonsense pocket. Isn’t she on tv with that small guy what’s his name? You know the mike Yeadon wannabe. Micheal baker I think nz comedy duo????

    • Yeah, he’s the guy who literally looks like he’s from Michael Jackson’s Thriller video; like he died ten years ago but just hasn’t realised it yet.

      Last person I would ever take health advice from.
