“cool, this is so cool. i'm have a very unusual setup today from outdoors.
right, let's not spend too much time in our houses but let's move on outdoors and do some work. maybe volunteering or maybe helping other people.
so we will have a quick update today on the things which happened last week.
I have two phones with me. one is with the facebook stream and one is with zoom. the one on the facebook will be shared - it is being recorded, and the one on zoom is so you could ask questions and i will be able to respond to some of them
So the most important piece comes from the fact that we are creating a new portal here called open canada and i'm opening it right now.
The folks on the facebook should be able to see it, and if you are not on facebook, but on zoom just go to ivim.ca and click on the link which is “open canada” and you would see it. it has a bunch of nice visualizations here.
We have kind of a gauge which shows the percentage of fully vaccinated, which is 82 percent now, and then we have three other gauges here, which shows the percentage or fully vaccinated in covid 19 cases. - isn't it beautiful right? - among deaths, among hospitalizations, and cases
you would see it's a brand new design, and there are a number of people who are helping me with the design of the portal.
and we will just go quickly about the content of this portal . again how do you find this portal ? You go to ivim dot ca and there you would see - i have a note that this dashboard is moving to new location. so just go there okay? so i'm clicking again here and that's where you would see a new portal is being designed
so this morning the new data with stats for the 22nd of may have been published by public health agency of canada (phac)
i didn't have time to put all of this data, but i just normally look just into the death statistics here. And you may remember the reported percentage of fully vaccinated among deaths - that's our metric which we are monitoring closely since when they started posting it in august . We looked into these numbers again this morning and what happens is that numbers keep going up and they actually exceeded the prediction which i have given more than a month ago.
So more than more than a month ago i have told you that there will be 35 percent of fully vaccinated in the reported COVID deaths.
now let me see if you can see it here okay - so the graph is right right here, and i will produce a newsletter with all stats. But essentially if you see it, the last bar was added today and it's 81 percent for fully vaccinated in the last week, right ?
and then there are so many other things here.
so anyway our predictions are just as we have predicted a month and a half ago
But now it appeared to us that there is no point of predicting what we already know, and we will focus rather on helping other people who are affected by the policies which have been in place, in particular, people who are put on leave without pay, which apparently is actually something the government cannot do. - They don't have right to do that and especially right now, as we see the data does not support the claims of the government
so we do have a legal responsibility to let the government know that the data now in june are very much different from the data which was used in developing the policies back in september, right ?
so that's why we created a page called - you would see - self-help. and in self-help you would see we have how to file a grievance.
before that we were showing you how to report vaccine side effect. now we have a few more pages added there. one is related to union policy grievance.
so, the union has issued a policy grievance. and then you can on top of that you can file your own grievance. and then also you can file a complaint to canadian human rights commission about the discrimination, because you are being discriminated on the basis of some medical status. and information is provided here again not by myself, but by other individuals
and we will use this time today just to walk you through the information which is on the portal
and then we'll have another zoom - just for people to answer your questions, perhaps on friday or also just contact me in person, and we'll have another one in the evening if needed.
so please go there if you're one of those who have been affected. If you've been put on live without pay and you're not receiving a salary or employment insurance , there are ways for you to get it back, but you need to do something, you just cannot be silent about the things which are now supported by data and by a legal experts. You do have many rights and reasons to get your salary and job back
now let's just go back to the main portal.
this is what we are putting here and it's a lot of fun to be building a new portal. it's a new technology developed by google - google sites
And anyone who would like to contribute anything on this portal is very welcome to contact me and we could provide you a page where you could provide some help to other people
again, we call it self-help
many ways people can help each other - building websites, organizing events, maybe removing trees, for example, or putting jobs online for people who are looking for some income in this very harsh times, when they were not receiving the salary for more than half a year, many of them
the portal starts from our mission.
so i will read it aloud here:
“to enable and unite canadians by providing data evidence and two tools data tools to help each other in the time of hardships caused by covid 19 pandemic and associated government measures
i know that some people even don't want to call it pandemic. some people call it plandemic, because it was planned. There are many things which show that the preparations for pandemic have been happening for many years before covid has officially been “launched” in 2020, right ?
now, how we do it ? how we fulfill our mission ?
by analyzing the data related to three things all deaths all collective number of deaths which have has been happening in canada because this is your main metric remember if deaths are going up after vaccination means vaccination probably doing more harm than good right maybe so in total of course we need to look into the old deaths by age of course very importantly because we know that covet affects elderly people and young people were not dying before vaccination very very few of them less than one percent but after vaccination has started with young population we see more than one percent uh dying uh or just in absolute numbers just more now we're looking at the data related to vaccine efficacy and then vaccine safety again we emphasize that only official government sources are used mainly from our government of canada official sources and you can click here and you will see these sources right here hopefully now it's very very convenient for anyone to use this portal you can just click on these links yourself and just look at these numbers yourself related to efficacy safety and total deaths now you remember that they do not track the numbers they do not plot those graphs which we plot instead they publish pdf files or html files from which we would paste those numbers into our spreadsheet so let's just go to one of those now those reports which has been updated this morning remember okay and it shows you up till may 22nd that was that was the day which for which we have predicted back in the middle of april that there will be 35 percent of fully vaccinated reported now you will go to this page here and you would see the table number two you can just scroll it yourself here but the table was published here and it's it's right here so we're looking at these numbers you see 17 0.6 plus 18.6 oh sorry 18.3 so that brings you to what 35.9 percent
you got it right ?
so we have more than what was predicted
okay let's go back to to our portion
now very interesting how to operate this
hopefully you are enjoying the weather as i do and we will just keep looking into the portal
what else here?
so also we are saying that the reason why we're doing all this is to communicate.
to communicate with whom ? - with politicians of course, with lawyers and general public, because now there are a number of lawyers who see the data, see the evidence and they're helping us to put this data in action
so that we could defend the truth, the evidence, the way it is officially presented here. and we publish our results and communications here in communications. you can click there and you would go into substack newsletter. and of course we have also weekly webinars or seminars
again today i will not be able to talk to you in two directions but you could still ask questions and please go ahead and ask questions in zoom - i will go and look into those questions but i will respond to them offline okay ?
and then we have key observations so far and they are listed below. now these will be updated later today.
we already have a number of very important observations. and we'll start from the recent the most latest one, which is that statistics canada has erased deleted the data which showed extreme number of excess deaths in in new brunswick.
and you remember this chart we were showing it
i wonder if you can you see it's such a beautiful portal here i love it i love it i love it so that's the beach oh that's the access deaths you remember which was published in april and they essentially they uh removed it they put any not information not available in new brunswick
so this will be one of our observations and it would go right here
observation number one
deaths or the evidence of data has been erased but we do have it
observation number two
bias was introduced algorithmic bias was introduced in the way the percentages of full vaccinated are reported and we talked about that many times observation number three will be that when you recompute by weak the percentage it actually went from nine and ten percent to more than now eighty percent and let me fell because i was trying to reach a pointer and a point in my case is a a piece of grass here okay cool right so we used to have nine percent and now we have 81 this morning reported for the 22nd for the 22nd of may alright
so again i hope you you have a nice lunch or you have a nice break because i'm also like i can tell you more later on the activities which i'm doing now, because i do need to get some salaries, or some money or at least to help my neighbors. so i'm helping it.
there was - remember - there was a huge thunderstorm and many trees were falling and there's so many houses which were damaged and trees are still lying
so i'm helping to cut the trees here these days.
but data science of course remains my main profession, using the data to help canadians to see better. okay, and you would see that indeed all these graphs are interactive. you probably have seen many of these, but that's where we are right now
okay so please take time, look what is there, send me email, if you have any questions related to either data or about filing a grievance okay ?
now there was a big question about this graph called odds - odds of cases
let me just open this graph here okay
you probably can see me in the in the reflection - so okay you see what a nice weather inside there outside
so this graph really shows you thee efficacy or the value of being vaccinated with one dose, two dose,s three doses and so on. it compares the number of cases deceased in each population. and when i say by population, i mean population of people with zero doses, population of people with one dose, and three doses.
and looks like it does not rotate the screen but this is the graph really which shows you the value of receiving those doses
i have to tell you there are many articles on the on the web which just criticized vaccination too much, i would put it this way, because this graph does show that in august - september, there was 12 times more chances of dying if you were were having zero doses, compared to two doses, a big red bar you see - i'm trying to show it here yeah okay right ?
but then you see that this red bar went really down, now it's only 1.5 - 1.8
so still very importantly, we have really to be objective here, and i believe, this is why data can unite two those different camps, who have become so antagonistic to each other that they are not listening to each other - people who are pro-vaccine and those who are anti-vaccine.
you see vaccine was helping - it reduced the rate of death in the beginning, and it has done the job - it slowed down whatever it could slowed down.
But then in the same graph, you could see that the third dose, for example, is not improving - it actually makes it worse, according to the same data, which is here
so again, we do have this tool called” vaccination” and it can do something and it has done something, and we have to appreciate this fact that our professionals, our experts medical experts recommended it, and people were taking vaccines and we reduced the spread at that time.
but then the efficacy of vaccine, as seen from this data, reduces over time - and everyone knows about this - so this is why they were saying that we should be getting boosters
But on the other hand, what you will not hear too much on the mainstream media and from our politicians is that your best booster is your natural immunity, and many people including myself, we already had covid, and it was easy , really easier than flu which we had in the past in my family, let's say five years ago
so many of us already have natural immunity. and you probably know that in sweden, in denmark, in uk there are no more any pandemic restrictions, because they say there is a herd immunity, thanks to omicron, thanks to natural immunity.
and you again in canada do not hear this word “natural immunity”. just try to ,say, just try to search in liberal government or ndp documents or talk to your doctors, talk to or watch cbc or ctv, just search for natural immunity, you will not hear this word as if it does not exist in canada.
but the words “banning from travel” do exist. the words “freedom” or “fighting for freedom” is one of the words which is most frequently right now used in canada.
so thank you very much everyone for watching.
i will stop now my facebook stream, and i will continue now with a zoom - answering your questions.”
