Are Chinese Citizens, Outside Of Wuhan, Immune To COVID-19?

President Xi Jinping and members of the Chinese communist party,

I write this brief public query to you as an American immunologist and physician.

It has been very concerning to witness the devastation caused to the western world and our allies and partners by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.

But the most puzzling aspect of this COVID-19 pandemic has been how incredibly well spared almost all of your nation, outside of Wuhan, seems to be.

Indeed, the COVID-19 epidemiological differential between China and the rest of the world, is so MASSIVE that…

Millions of Americans Are Poised To Be Discriminated Against or Subjected To Harm

President Biden undergoing COVID-19 vaccination. Though the president is correct in promoting large scale vaccination, his administration is creating a new American underclass. The people who are naturally immune from a prior infection will either conform and comply with an irrational and likely unnecessary medical treatment — OR they will be excluded and discriminated against by the rest of America. Is this Biden’s America?

I write here as a physician, Immunologist and a verifiable Biden supporter in the 2020 presidential election — but now increasingly shocked by the administration’s mindless and totalitarian willingness to permit the creation of a new American underclass.

Let me explain with as much clarity as I can muster.

As of this writing in June 2021, millions of Americans have been naturally infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It is likely that somewhere in the neighborhood of 20–30% of Americans have had either symptomatic or asymptomatic COVID-19 disease.

The vast majority of these infected US citizens and residents are already naturally…

So Why Is The Agency Not Endorsing A #ScreenB4Vaccine And “Delay” Approach To Protect Millions of Previously Infected Americans?

CDC director, Dr. Walensky, is very literally and knowingly allowing a disaster to unfold for a minority subset of unsuspecting Americans with prior COVID-19 infections, by allowing their unrestrained and indiscriminate vaccination. This is a critical and dangerous error in policy at CDC. Why can’t the US do as our Israeli partners have: Exclude the recently infected and already immune from immediate vaccination?

It is a certainty that the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is aware of the increased health risk of COVID-19 vaccination in persons with prior SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Recently, CDC published a paper about a group of 6 patients with critical Multi-system Inflammatory Syndrome (MIS), early in the COVID-19 vaccine campaign. MIS is a dreaded critical illness associated with some viral illnesses, including COVID-19.

What’s striking about this paper is that 3 of the six patients with critical inflammatory disease developed their illness following vaccination — in the a setting where they’d been previously infected with SARS-CoV-2.

A warning to the United States Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The US Food and Drug Administration is being warned here: The US should not be allowing indiscriminate COVID-19 vaccination of the recently infected or already immune.

Since Fall 2020, I have been warning the US Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about the potential danger of indiscriminately vaccinating those recently infected with and naturally immune to COVID-19.

My warnings have fallen on deaf ears at these federal agencies — despite both their ethical and immunological power, predicting harm to at least a minority subset of unsuspecting Americans — and many more worldwide.

But this severe safety concern, which our federal public health agencies and the vaccine manufacturers are unable to address with integrity and are ignoring instead, is something that…

Why has Dr. Janet Woodcock allowed a dangerously “misguided” FDA guidance to be issued on the COVID-19 antibody assays? FDA ought not be the purveyor of “anti-science” — especially when it is a certainty that this guidance will promote continued violation of the principle of “medical necessity” — and sustain the indiscriminate and potentially harmful vaccination of recently COVID-19 infected person. JW can do FAR better than this!

On May 19, 2021, the United States Food and Drug Administration, under the leadership of Dr. Janet Woodcock, issued a shocking guidance.

In this “misguided” guidance “FDA Advises Against Use of SARS-CoV-2 Antibody Test Results to Evaluate Immunity or Protection From COVID-19, Including After Vaccination”.

For many immunologists, this FDA statement is anathema to a well established immunological principle we ALL know to be 100% true: That the presence of IgG antibodies against viral antigens is the gold standard for determination of whether a person is immune to any given viral or bacterial pathogen.

As an analogy, this FDA statement…

The senior US senator from the state of Wisconsin, Mr. Ron Johnson, is the lone voice of reason and courage in questioning the Biden administration’s irrational and unsafe promotion of indiscriminate COVID-19 vaccination in millions of the Americans who are naturally immune from prior SARS-CoV-2 infections.

FACT: Millions of Americans are already naturally immune to SARS-CoV-2 — because millions of Americans have already been infected with the virus.

FACT: The Biden administration, Dr. Fauci, Dr. Collins, Dr. Marks, Dr. Walensky, and Dr. Woodcock are all aware that the vast majority of naturally immune Americans are protected from re-infection. They’ve known this for months now.

FACT: The Biden administration’s public health officials are fully aware that protection from natural immunity is at least as good, if not more robust than, vaccine immunity.

This means that, in the vast majority of the millions of our country-men and -women…

#ScreenB4Vaccine is a safety algorithm EVERY American must have access to in order to protect themselves from an unnecessary or potentially harmful vaccination during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Currently, it is NOT a standard of care in medical practice to assess either the extent of a person’s existing immunity or the presence of an active infection at the time a patient is being offered a vaccine.

In the case of the COVID-19 pandemic and SARS-CoV-2 infection, it is certainly the case that COVID-19 vaccines are being offered to people, worldwide, many of whom are either naturally immune or recently infected.

It is my opinion, as a physician and immunologist, that this indiscriminate vaccination process is either unnecessary or potentially dangerous — thus, indiscriminate COVID-19 vaccination has opened the…

Indiscriminate COVID-19 vaccination of those our brave men and women in uniform who are either robustly naturally immune to COVID-19 or are recently infected by SARS-CoV-2, poses a totally avoidable risk of harm to, at least some of them. Is it not the duty of the commander-in-chief to maximally protect our troops from all unnecessary risks of harm?

Dear President Biden,

I write here, as a physician and immunologist, in defense of our brave men and women in uniform— member of the United States military.

Specifically, I write here to publicly inform you that the subset of our troops who are already naturally immune to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, or who have been recently infected, are at risk of potentially deadly harm from indiscriminate COVID-19 vaccination.

I respectfully ask that you carefully consider my analysis here and discuss it with your national security advisor, joint chiefs of staff and the secretaries of the US Army, Navy and Air Force.
