Did Uncle Jacques throw fake news at Christmas dinner?  Here is what to answer him

Who said Christmas and New Year, It
Hot discussions during family meals. And the precautions to be taken to limit the spread of the virus and protect the most vulnerable will not change anything. Global warming, presidential elections, health crisis management … there is no shortage of subjects.

In view of the many theories that have been widely propagated on social networks and media, in particular Kovid-19, The
Vaccine, The
Health pass, Among others, fake news is likely to be numerous. 20 minutes So prepared some arguments for you to answer them at the table.

Fake news number 1: “Vaccines do not work against Kovid-19 because there are more positive people”

Definitely Antivox’s favorite shortcut, this is wrong! The direct goal of vaccines today is not to make Kovid-19 disappear. World Health Organization Also mentioned “Living With” many times. Reference site
Vaccine Information Service “Vaccines against Kovid-19 reduce the risk of contracting the disease and protect you from the disease, especially in severe form,” he explains.

“In those who have been vaccinated, even if the transmission is reduced, it is possible, so it is very important to continue to apply all preventive measures,” it added.

It is untrue to say that vaccines in the context of Kovid-19 are ineffective as cases are increasing. At the beginning of the campaign, at the end of 2020, They have been confirmed to be 90% effective. However, it is safe to say that vaccines lost their effectiveness due to the advent of new variants.
Omicron. On December 14, a study conducted in South Africa went in this direction. Developed by scientists from Discovery, the country’s leading private health insurance company, and the South African Council for Medical Research (SAMRC), the work is based on 78,000 PCR tests conducted between November 15 and December 7. According to Ryan Noch, president of Discovery, he points out that the double dose of the Pfizer vaccine has a 70% “reduction in hospital attendance” against Omicron.

Provides benefit-risk balance On the government website French is a good indicator of the effectiveness of the vaccine.

Fake news number 2: “Government wants to hide the truth from us, evidenced by the negative effects of the Kovid-19 vaccine”

In contrast, there is a real transparency approach regarding vaccines and it happens At the European level. All the data related to Anti-Kovid-19 injections are available on the website
European Medicines Agency. It’s progress on marketing powers, other vaccines and treatments, but also
Unwanted effects. For each injection of Pfizer, Modernna, Jansen and Astrogeneneka, there is a census at the European level. Later,
Everything is available in table form. It contains a list of undesirable effects and their classification by gender, age and geographical origin.

Let’s kill two birds with one stone, we can answer the following misinformation: “There are more risks than benefits with many side effects”. A month ago, Diane Bandon-Tourette, The lawyer specializes in health, explained At 20 minutes : “There is consistent monitoring that allows data to be collected at the European level. The risk-benefit balance is constantly monitored and must be positive. Therefore, since conditional marketing authority depends on it, it is impossible for the risks to outweigh the benefits of the vaccine.

And if Turkey is around, the argument based on the rumor that Emmanuel Macron has classified the documents related to the epidemic as a defense secret, is false, As we explained to you last month.

Fake news number 3: “Vaccination against Kovid-19 makes it possible to control the entire population”

Since the beginning of the vaccine campaign, the rumor has been widely shared on social networks. For some, the vaccine-injected chip may even contain 5G, which allows individuals to track. Recent Invention from the Swedish company DSruptive Subdermals Only reinforced those beliefs. It has developed a subcutaneous chip in which users can save their personal data, including a health pass. Unlike France, the Swedes use these chips. In recent years, thousands of people have replaced the implant with an electronic implant that replaces keys, business cards, and train tickets.

For this theory to be valid, the chip on the one hand would have to be injected with a very fine needle and on the other hand it would have to be able to give a strong enough signal back to a chip of such a small size. Will be exploited. Today, these two parameters are not compatible, As described Conversation, A medium for providing content from the university community.

Researchers are showing that an antenna that allows communication with such a small chip is impossible to achieve today. To perform their calculations, they took into account the fact that the frequencies used in wireless telephony transmissions had increased by 10 in twenty years. According to their estimates, “so we will have to wait sixty years for the frequency of wireless transmissions so that antennas small enough to inject the chip into the vaccine can be created”.

And we like gifts and in the absence of misinformation on this topic, some articles have been made here 20 minutes This year should be even stronger against fake news. In the vaccination section:
Effective antibiotics are not prohibited By the government,
AP-HP does not conduct clinical trials Vaccines are illegal,
The European Union did not plan Seven doses per citizen …

And more broadly about Kovid-19: Discovery dates we do not already know New variants,
Ivermectin is not effective Against Kovid-19 …
