As a relevant aside, note that those states with the lowest vaccination rates (i.e., Florida, Alabama, West Virginia, Mississippi, and Idaho – as of 9/21/21) currently have the highest per capita death rates – in the world: Link, Link (averaged over the last seven days):

Deaths per 100,000: 2.07
Daily average deaths: 444.6

Deaths per 100,000: 1.55
Daily average deaths: 76

West Virginia
Deaths per 100,000: 1.48
Daily average deaths: 26.6

Deaths per 100,000: 1.41
Daily average deaths: 42

Deaths per 100,000: 1.3
Daily average deaths: 23.3

Note also that the stabilized “Prefusion” confirmation of the Spike Protein in vaccines (as discussed by Dr. Patrick) is present in the mRNA and J&J vaccines, but not the other vaccines:

  1. Would be interested to know Dr Seheult’s thoughts on how many Covid + patients would’ve avoided hospitalization and death if early management guidelines were adopted as opposed to sending patients home until advanced sx’s occur?

    • Dr. Seheult has advised people who get sick with COVID-29 to start a number of early treatments as soon as possible – and even before they get sick. As mentioned in this video, he’s a big proponent of the “Swiss Cheese Model” of prevention as well as treatment – where multiple “layered” measures are taken to provide the best overall protection. Where one “layer” is weak, another will be stronger – the more protective layers the better. Just go to his MedCram website and you will see dozens of his videos where he discusses the advantages of healthful living, vitamin D, Zinc/Quercitin, Hot/Cold Fomentations, sleep, masks, early steroid use, monoclonal antibodies, etc. Dr. Seheult was one of the first well-known pulmonologists to promote various ways to boost one’s immune system prior to being exposed to COVID-19 and additional early therapies after one is sickened by COVID-19.

      • Thanks, I have appreciated Dr Seheult’s videos. My ? Had to do with the abject failure overall of the medical community in its response. If early tx was initiated I’ve learned upwards of 80% survival and less hospitalization. That would’ve relegated this pandemic to a flu like status with regard to overall death. Our health message is a gift from God and my hope would be that more Dr Seheult’s would get the message out! We are a dangerously unhealthy nation that will be ripe for more of these modern plagues. We’re just applying band aids!

        • While I agree, part of the problem is that people, in general in this country, simply don’t want to live healthful lives despite actually knowing that what they are doing isn’t healthy or good for them. When I was doing primary care, this was a constant frustration. You could tell people all day long what they should be doing, and they would usually even agree, but they just wouldn’t actually do what they knew they should be doing…

  2. What we really hate is the way politicians use the situation
    to advance their authority over people and take over
    their life on every level.
    We know the civil government has some authority over
    the citizens of the country. But they go way beyond their
    proper authority to take total control of our life.
    Spiritual matters will soon be the agenda and we
    know the final outcome.

    They even makeup some crisis for their agenda.
    Take care.

    • Sure, it’s very unfortunate that this pandemic has been so politicized. However, just because we know the final outcome doesn’t mean that this is it. We shouldn’t bring on the “Time of Trouble” before it’s actually here. During this particular pandemic we, particularly as Christians, should strive to separate medical science from politics. Merging them will only cause more harm. Many people really are suffering and dying due to COVID-19 and the mRNA vaccines have proven themselves to be very effective at preventing serious sickness and death.

      • Well, Sean. Some doctors say one thing
        and others say the opposite.
        So you can support any side you
        think is right.
        Many have made up their minds and
        no amount of “proof” will change it.

        My wife and I both took the Johnson
        and Johnson shot. We felt no negative
        effect. And we don’t regret having taken
        the shot.

        But we still think people must have a
        choice in the matter.

        And no. We don’t want to create a time of
        trouble before hand. But we don’t need to close
        our eyes to what is happening either.
        Take care.

        • There are always rogue doctors around selling snake oil remedies and forwarding a host of conspiracy theories. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t a strong consensus in the medical community regarding COVID-19 and the efficacy and relative safety of the vaccines. A handful of doctors spreading conspiracy theories shouldn’t overcome one’s ability to see that the significant weight of empirical scientific evidence strongly supports the consensus conclusion in this case. After all, over 98% of medical doctors in this country are now vaccinated – particularly those working in ICUs who see that the unvaccinated are by far more likely to end up in the ICU and die with COVID compared to the vaccinated – by a ratio of more than 10:1 for any given age category.
