One of the world’s oldest and most prestigious medical journals has issued an urgent call for the full release of all data regarding the COVID-19 injections and other treatments, arguing that keeping crucial information hidden from the public is “morally indefensible.”
In a comprehensive editorial published January 19 by senior editor Peter Doshi, editor in chief Kamran Abbasi, and former editor in chief Fiona Godlee, The British Medical Journal (BMJ) asserted that clinical trial data used to approve COVID-19 drugs “should be fully and immediately available for public scrutiny.” …
“Pfizer’s pivotal covid vaccine trial was funded by the company and designed, run, analysed, and authored by Pfizer employees,” the medical journal explained, adding that “[t]he company and the contract research organisations that carried out the trial hold all the data.” …
Potentially the world’s most hated company, when the world works out what happened
Late last year the FDA generated headlines when it responded to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by asking for 55 to 75 years to fully release the data they reviewed before authorizing Pfizer’s COVID-19 injections.
Facing legal pressure, the FDA then released its first batch of documents in November 2021. The scant 91 pages nonetheless contained data suggesting that tens of thousands of serious adverse events and more than 1,200 deaths had been reported in the first three months after Pfizer’s COVID-19 jab was cleared under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).
On January 7, 2022, a U.S. district judge rejected the FDA’s request to continue delaying the release of their clinical trial data, ordering the regulatory body to publish the roughly 329,000 pages of documents in its possession at a rate of 55,000 pages per month rather than the 500 pages per month initially requested.
However, the BMJ’s editors noted that the “FDA is producing data only for Pfizer’s vaccine,” while “other manufacturers’ data cannot be requested until the vaccines are approved, which the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are not.” …
The BMJ went on to point out that in the wake of global immunization efforts, “trust” and “transparency” are vital, noting that “Big pharma is the least trusted industry.”
“At least three of the many companies making covid-19 vaccines have past criminal and civil settlements costing them billions of dollars,” the editors said, adding that one of the companies (Pfizer), has previously “pleaded guilty to fraud.”
“Other companies have no pre-covid track record,” the journal’s editors continued. “Now the covid pandemic has minted many new pharma billionaires, and vaccine manufacturers have reported tens of billions in revenue.”
It reeks of corruption. They are playing reckless games with our health.
