Huge Surge in Covid-19 and Variants
‘Ultra-Vaxxed’ Israel Sees Huge Surge in Covid

“Israel is one of the most vaccinated nations in the world. 80% of their eligible population is vaccinated, far beyond what was once being touted as a “herd immunity” level necessary for life to return to normal. Despite their success in getting their population to have experimental drugs injected into their bodies, the country [Israel] is suffering through a huge spike in cases. Tuesday [Aug 24, 2021] had nearly the highest new case total the nation has seen since the pandemic began.
There have been plenty of reasons given for this. Some point to Israel opening up and letting people take off their masks for a short time. Others say it’s normal for there to be occasional spikes following mass vaccinations, ignoring literally every successful vaccine in world history. Then, there are those who are trying to move the goalpost, blaming the Delta Variant for forcing us to accept that the vaccine are more of a deterrent than protection.
The massive surge of COVID-19 infections in Israel, one of the most vaccinated countries on earth, is pointing to a complicated path ahead for America. The country [Israel] launched its national vaccination campaign in December last year and has one of the highest vaccination rates in the world, with 80 percent of citizens above the age of 12 fully inoculated. COVID, most Israelis thought, had been defeated. All restrictions were lifted.
Fast forward two months later: Israel reported 9,831 new diagnosed cases on Tuesday [Aug 24, 2021], a hairbreadth away from the worst daily figure ever recorded in the country—10,000—at the peak of the third wave. More than 350 people have died of the disease in the first three weeks of August . In a Sunday press conference, the directors of seven public hospitals announced that they could no longer admit any coronavirus patients. With 670 COVID-19 patients requiring critical care, their wards are overflowing and staff are at breaking point.
“I don’t want to frighten you,” coronavirus czar Dr. Salman Zarka told the Israeli parliament this week. “But this is the data. Unfortunately, the numbers don’t lie.” What happened?
For a nation to be as heavily vaccinated as Israel to be going through a spike in Covid cases cannot be categorized as anything other than proof that they do not work. Period. End of story. Unfortunately, it’s not the end of the story. Logic has been tossed out the window. The article continues to try to explain away what’s happening:
The complex and sobering truth is that no single policy or event brought Israel to this crisis, Hagai Levine, a Hebrew University of Jerusalem professor of epidemiology, told The Daily Beast “We are still in the midst of a pandemic, and there is no silver bullet.”
But the principal causes of Israel’s current predicament are the dominance of the extremely infectious Delta variant, which was carried into the country by Israelis returning from foreign vacations during the weeks in which Israel dropped all restrictive measures—along with the worrisome decrease in vaccine efficacy after about six months.
Israel vaccinated its population almost exclusively with the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, which received full FDA approval on Monday [Aug 23, 2021] and remains the gold standard for the prevention of severe illness due to the coronavirus. If the “vaccines” are good for preventing serious illness [COVID-19, Delta, Lamda, Omicron etc.] and not effective at preventing infection [SARS-CoV-2], shouldn’t that make vaccine mandates unnecessary?”
Editorial Comment on the Article
Choosing to be vaccinated is a personal decision and taking a vaccine for COVID-19 is suggested, but be aware of potential side effects especially if you have comorbidities including diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma and respiratory challenges and just being older with a lesser immune defense.
The so-called booster shot will attempt to increase needed antibodies against the known variants, including Omicron, because research has shown antibodies created by existing vaccines appear to have limited lives of about 6-8 months, with more definitive research needed. The number of persons contracting Covid-19, Delta or Omicron after vaccination increases daily.
In the interim a natural immune cell booster named beta glucan recognized by the FDA as a “biological response modifier” classified as GRAS for safe ingestion orally can nutritionally enhance the immune defense against what is non-self and potentially seeking to harm the body. See extensive research at www.betaglucan.org.
As opinion of Frank Jordan, more variants will come and be similar but with differences from the original COVID-19 such as Lambda, Delta and Omicron. In coming months it is predicted, including Pfizer executives and Bill Gates, that an annual shot similar to the flu shot but with multiple strains or variants of coronavirus will be selected by informed professionals for the general population to contribute to minimizing illness health challenges. As a final note, influenza is also a coronavirus as are the multiple strains of the common cold. Needed is a combination effective against multiple viruses.
