As Europe confronts a new wave of lockdowns, Sajid Javid’s vaccine plan is being questioned.
SAJID With a return to harsher coronavirus limitations across Europe, Javid’s vaccine strategy has been called into question.
Professor David Paton has lambasted European governments, as well as the United Kingdom, for pushing for widespread coronavirus vaccine. Prof Paton argued that the method “seems to have very little effect indeed” in terms of lowering infections, as countries such as Austria consider new limits. NHS employees will be need to be fully vaccinated by spring next year in order to keep their employment, according to Sajid Javid.
Prof Paton told Talkradio, “As usual, the Covid case seems to proceed in waves.”
“And governments appear to believe they can keep these waves under control.”
“And, when it comes down to it, they can’t.”
“The irony is that just a few weeks ago, regions like Germany and Ireland were being held up as examples of places that had handled the pandemic exceptionally successfully.”
“And we were told, well, look at Germany, where they have vaccine, boats, and masks,” he continued.
The same may be said for Ireland and Greece in Austria.
“This is why, with vaccine passports, masks, and other safeguards, England needs to go to Plan B.”
“Remember how there was all this pressure a couple of weeks ago?” The same thing was said in pieces in The Guardian and The Atlantic in the United States.
“And, as you say, the situation has entirely flipped, and you’ve seen huge gains.”
“Germany was particularly startling yesterday,” he continued, “they have 50,000 cases.” This is the pandemic’s greatest number of cases reported in Germany.
“For the past week or two, Ireland has been reporting around 3000 people per day.
“That is, once again, one of the highest rates in the country.
“Now, Ireland, for example, is being held up due of its extremely high vaccination rate.”
“And it’s interesting, I think that the policy in these countries, and to be fair in the UK as well, has been focused on really looking at vaccinations, and the evidence we now have is that vaccinations are very good for reducing hospitalizations and deaths when you vaccinate the vulnerable,” the professor continued.
“However, while vaccination of the general population may be beneficial in some situations, it is not a useful policy instrument for reducing illnesses.”
“It appears to have a negligible impact.”
“So we have Ireland, the most vaccinated, one of the most immunized,” according to Brinkwire Summary News.
