Dr Hung a New Zealand Pathologist spends her days focused on dead people.
I spend mine, day after day after day, speaking with alive and damaged New Zealanders.
This gives us both a different perspective on the same situation. We both “deal with” myocarditis and pericarditis; but in my world the victims (and their families) are still alive and able to convey their shock and trauma to me.
I read Dr Hung’s opinion piece in the Herald, and felt compelled to add my perspective to her clinical summation, following the death of 26 year old New Zealander Rory, from Myocarditis following the Pfizer jab.
I communicate regularly with Rory’s fiancee Ashleigh. She is incredible. I am in awe of her strength and courage at a time when many would have taken to their bed in paralysed grief.
So here I am on my last working day of 2021. Its my parting “gift” to Kiwi’s, another dose of reality as the curtain comes down on our covid vaccination obsessed year in Godzone.
For those of you who don’t know me, I started a Facebook group eight months ago, in response to my growing concern about the evident lack of Informed Consent for New Zealanders taking the Covid-19 jab.
It was only ever meant to be a sleepy corner of Facebook, where I could post the voices of concern from doctors and scientists around the world, as well as giving a safe space for the vaccine injured to share their story.
Nine months later we are a safe and caring community for 52,000 mostly New Zealanders.
Thousands of our members have experienced covid vaccine adverse reactions. Some mild, many traumatising, incapacitating, and some of them permanent. A thankfully smaller group have joined us having experienced the loss of a loved one after the jab. Rory is one of only two New Zealanders “officially” acknowledged as having died as a direct result of the Pfizer Covid vaccination.
Medsafe has received an unprecedented 127 reports of death following the injection. While only two have been deemed causal at this point, this is completely unprecedented, and mimics the same phenomenon of post vaccine deaths being reported around the world.
Eight months ago a citizens initiative began collating temporally related deaths in New Zealand, following the covid vaccine. As we are not pathologists, we are unable to determine if these deaths were caused by the vaccine. All we can attest to is the sudden and unexpected nature of the deaths; the temporal relationship between the vaccine and the death (ranging from a couple of hours out to 6 weeks, but mostly clustered in the first 2 weeks post injection). The ages of the deceased range from 12 years of age, up to 100. This database has been sent to Medsafe three times, with nothing more than a formal “pro forma” acknowledgement of receipt.
But let’s return to the subject of the living, and in particular the New Zealanders who, this summer, won’t be jet skiing, hiking, playing soccer, or possibly even walking to the letterbox.
Why? Because their heart is broken. Hundreds of them have shared their stories with me (and we have recorded them in our database). They differ somewhat from the reassuring picture offered in Dr Hung’s article.
These still living Kiwis (the vast majority of whom are young, healthy and super fit) are deeply traumatised. No one, and I mean NO ONE told them this was even the vaguest possibility as they rolled their sleeve up and did the right thing for the nation.
It’s that thing called “informed consent”, its our medical right, and the unquestioned standard of care for every medical intervention prescribed or administered in medicine. Just not for the Covid 19 vaccines.
The world has known about the risk of heart inflammation following mRNA vaccines, since April of this year. Our Ministry of health knew about it then. OIA’s in my possession clearly indicate that it was known, acknowledged, discussed, and then shelved.
Nearly 8 million doses of Pfizer have been administered without a single New Zealander being informed of this known, real, incapacitating and potentially fatal risk
Just over a week ago, knowing that the news of Rory’s death from myocarditis was to be shared with the nation, the Ministry of health FINALLY sent out an urgent edict to all its vaccinators, instructing that henceforth the knowledge of this risk was to be imparted to the patient.
Too little. Too late, Ministry of Health. This was a criminal dereliction of your duty of care.
They all have the same story, these previously robust young Kiwis. Within hours to a few days of receiving either the first or second dose of Pfizer, things started to go horribly wrong. Excrutiating chest pain (that feels like a heart attack), difficulty breathing and breathlessness, dizziness, feeling faint, racing heart beat and skipped beats. They present to hospital, many of them to be told they are suffering from “anxiety”, “too much exercise” or “coffee” (Im not making it up).
For many it takes repeated hospital admissions (often in the middle of the night) before a diagnosis of heart inflammation is given. They are dispatched with anti inflammatories, pain medication and sometimes beta blockers. They are told it will “come right”.
Mercifully for many, within a few weeks, they can gently re engage with their lives. For others, months later, they remain the walking dead. Sofa bound, unable to even pick up their baby, or make a sandwich for themselves.
Myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart muscle. It causes the death of muscle cells. The heart is one of the few organs in the body that never replaces its cells. Cell die off causes scarring, which in turn weakens the function of the heart. Consequently myocarditis can cause the electrical system of the heart to go haywire, resulting in sudden death, as happened to Rory.
Dr Hung reassures us that the risk of myocarditis from the vaccine is infinitely smaller than the risk from Covid. Debate continues to swirl on this topic, but what is obvious is that receiving a vaccine exposes you to 100% of the risks associated with it in comparison to the possibility (someday, maybe) of contracting covid, so from the outset it’s not comparing apples with apples.
A recent clinical paper from Hong Kong found that:
37.32 per 100,000 = 1 in 2680 young men will develop myocarditis/pericarditis within two weeks of their second vaccination (median time to disease: 2 days).
This study was an analysis of hospital records of myocarditis/pericarditis, so did not include adolescents who may have developed the disease but did not seek medical attention.
As this analysis only included patients seeking help from a hospital, there is a strong likelihood that the actual incidence is much higher than this.
What does our New Zealand data say?
Before we take a look, please keep in mind that this is a voluntary reporting system, with an acknowledged capture of actual adverse events, of only 5% at most. Consequently, a more accurate picture of adverse reactions, entails multiplying figures by 20.
The latest Medsafe report up to the 4th of December (so we have around 500,000 doses administered since then with no data available), includes 340 cases of myo and pericarditis.
However if we seek out Medsafe reports of two of the most indicative symptoms of Myocarditis (chest pain and breathlessness), what do we find? Almost 7,000 reports of “chest discomfort” and over 4,000 reports of breathlessness. If we allow for an under reporting index of around 20 times, it is easy to conclude that the actual incidence of myocarditis is most likely many times higher than the recorded 340 cases.
If you are a New Zealander reading this post, here are the most important points i hope linger with you in the coming weeks:
- the Pfizer mRNA vaccine is associated with a very real increased risk of heart inflammation, especially in young males (but can also occur in females and all age groups).
- warning signs are chest pain, breathlessness, irregular heart beat, rapid heart beat, weakness and dizziness.
- EARLY TREATMENT IS VITAL. Present to a hospital immediately if you experience these symptoms.
- avoid all vigorous activity for at least 4 weeks after each injection.
Please ensure that your adverse reaction has been reported to Medsafe (CARM). You can self report online at: nzphvc.otago.ac.nz
