Remove and publicly apologise for this article promoting discrimination: https://uk.news.yahoo.com/anti-vaxxers-no-job-no-131913583.html
On the 18th May 2021 Yahoo News published an article by the Independent published an article online, written by Sean O'Grady, that contained offensive inciting discrimination, not to mention aggression and hatred, towards some members of society:
It was titled "This is what we do about anti-vaxxers: No job. No entry. No NHS access".
The article blames people who have not taken and are not taken a covid vaccine for the measures that the UK Government is imposing on society.
This is completely unacceptable because in any case no member of society can be forced or coerced into having any kind of medical intervention. To say that people who do not have the covid vaccines should be punished by being denied employment and services, in other words being denied a livelihood and therefore being left to starve and live in poverty, is abusive and against basic human rights; in fact it is in line with the attitudes and policies of regimes against which we fought in the second world war, and for which the Nuremberg Code was created in order to protect people from the same fate in future.
The situation is not even the fault of people who do not take the vaccines, and the measures the government is imposing on society not their fault either. Government data shows that the disease, covid-19, does bot pose a significant threat to society, and even if it did there are other means to mitigate a disease and so still no member of society could be discriminated against for not taking a medical intervention.
Therefore, you must make a public apology for this article.
There is evidence in the data from government and other official sources of the following:
Firstly, the vaccines are still in the experimental phase until 2023 and are not approved by the UK MHRA; they only have temporary authorisation for use in an emergency. Many safety tests have not been conducted; the information on that can be found in the UK Government documents for the vaccines.
Secondly, the situation in which our society finds itself does not warrant being called a medical emergency, as deaths in the UK in 2020 were the same as or slightly lower than in 2000-2003, and lower than the rest of the preceding years in the post-war era; we never had to go into lockdown in 2003.
The yearly mortality rates of below 1% from 2004-2019 were the abnormality, and in any case if the deaths in month of April 2020 are leveled to the average of the rest of the year then the mortality rate for the whole year is below 1% as in the preceding years, so the only higher mortality rate was in that one month. The UK Government also declassified covd-19 from being a high-consequence infectious disease in March 2020. In fact, influenza and pneumonia have caused higher mortality rates than covid, which was still the case in 2020. Furthermore, for most age-groups road deaths and even suicide, especially in the case of young people, are a greater threat to life than covid-19.
'Flu and pneumonia deaths:
In England and Wales there were 111,957 deaths “involving Influenza and pneumonia” 2020, which was 38.5% more than the 80,830 deaths involving covid, recorded on the death certificate; in the same period there were 20,523 deaths “due to influenza and pneumonia”, or where “influenza and pneumonia were recorded as the underlying cause”, which is 185% more than the 7,194 deaths from covid where the patients had no underlying conditions. https://www.ons.gov.uk/aboutus/transparencyandgovernance/freedomofinformationfoi/influenzadeathsfrom1999to2021
Furthermore, due to the experimental nature of the vaccines which have been rolled out so quickly, there is a significantly high rate of adverse reactions and deaths to the vaccines, as recorded by the MHRA and US CDC. The CDC VAERS data shows that the vaccines are the most dangerous ever created, and their use has caused nearly as many deaths as all other vaccines combined over the last 30 years. The vaccines employ new techniques of genetic engineering for which there is no data on long-term side effects.
Vaccines in trials till 2023:
Vaccines have temporary authorisation for use only in emergency:
Again, to incite punitive action against people for not taking these vaccines is unlawful; UK laws have been created to ensure that no-one who does not take the vaccines will be discriminated against in any way, to punish people for not taking them is against the Human Rights Act and to coerce people into taking them is a breach of the Nuremberg Code.
People with whose religion prohibits them from participating in abortion may not take the vaccines, as they contain HEK (human embryonic kidney) cells from aborted fetuses:
In any case, although the Relative Risk Reduction is of 80%, quoted by the UK Government as in the Astrazeneca document above, the Absolute Risk Reduction, which takes into account the risk of catching the disease amongst the population in the first place, is only 2.9%, using the formula as explained by the BMJ:
On p9 of the Astra-Zeneca vaccine document, the test phase for the second dose after 12 weeks showed the following results: 15 out of 2,038 (0.7%) participants taking the vaccine tested positive for covid; 76 out of 2,093 (3.6%) participants taking the placebo tested positive: Absolute Risk in Control Group (ARC) = 76 / 2093 = 0.036 Absolute Risk in Test Group (ART) = 15 / 2038 = 0.007 RRR (relative risk reduction) = (ARC – ART) / ARC = (0.036 – 0.007) / 0.036 = 0.8 = 80% ARR (absolute risk reduction) = ARC – ART = 0.036 – 0.007 = 0.029 = 2.9% NNT (number needed to treat) = 1 / ARR = 34 people to prevent 1 infection
Therefore, Absolute Risk Reduction of covid vaccine (Astra-Zeneca) = 2.9%
Furthermore, the UK Government Astra-Zeneca vaccine information above states on p4 "The duration of protection has not yet been established. As with any vaccine, vaccination with COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca may not protect all vaccine recipients."
Lastly, the WHO have publicised that measures against covid will not end with vaccines, but that vaccines will only play a part and isolation, control and surveillance of the population will continue.
Therefore, your article not only serves to stir up hatred from one sector of society against another, and divide society, but does so by painting a false picture of the situation, which is completely at odds with officially accepted data and official publications.
Please make a formal and public apology for the publication of your article, explaining why it is wrong and retracting its accusations and threats. Please also notify me of the publication of your apology for it.
