Dr. Mark Dybul,

"I hope I'm wrong this time, but I think by March, April, and May, we will have a fully vaccine-resistant variant...The probability of us seeing a vaccine-resistant strain is very high…because we’re going to have a big wave," according to Dr. Mark Dybul, an immunologist trained under Anthony Fauci. See mark 1:38. 


Against a blue background with the repeating moniker – FORTUNE – Dr. Dybul assumed a classic Bill Gates pose – with hands clasped in thought. Dr. Mark Dybul, a man often photographed with the vaccine mogul, continued, "We have been a month behind Europe and Israel, Northern Europe, this entire pandemic, especially with Thanksgiving coming, by a month from now we're quite likely to look like those countries. How we react to it might be different, but we're quite likely to look like those countries – in terms of increased infections and a ticking up of hospitalizations and deaths, even among vaccinated people..." See mark 00:27.


"Even among vaccinated people," was the part that I noticed. 

Because if we look at the countries that are not vaccinated, like Nigeria, we see something remarkable. Nigeria has just 14 deaths per million people, while the United States has 2366 deaths. 

According to "Our World in Data," Nigeria has less than 1.3 percent of its population fully vaccinated, and they are doing 100 times better than we are. With 99 percent of its population fully vaccinated, Gibraltar has 2900 deaths per million. Few areas on Earth are doing worse.


They are doing even worse than the United States in the pandemic, and they are fully vaccinated. India has only 315 deaths per million, and they are doing 10 times better than the US or Gibraltar, yet India is only 33% fully vaccinated. Why is it that some countries are doing so much better than others?

Graph of Country's death by COVID

Pulitzer Prize-winning author and physician Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee, wrote an article in The New Yorker on this subject, "Why Does the Pandemic Seem to Be Hitting Some Countries Harder than Others?" 

He weighed in on this issue, “Tenfold differences or 100-fold differences—these aren’t minor. You have to account for other factors. You can’t just wave the numbers off. It’s going to be a lesson for this pandemic and for every future pandemic.”


Mukherjee wrote that deaths in Nigeria were extremely low back in February, now more than nine months later, and its numbers have not risen much since then. 

"Nearly a year after Nigeria confirmed its first infections from the new coronavirus,” Mukherjee said, “Niger State has reported fewer than twenty deaths. The country’s numbers are climbing—but they’ll need to grow exponentially in order to catch up with the models."  

Nigeria's COVID deaths have not risen exponentially; they haven't risen much at all. Dr. Mukherjee noted that the pandemic will teach scientists lessons, and perhaps the most important one is humility. 

"Above all, what’s needed is humility in the face of an intricately evolving body of evidence. The pandemic could well drift or shift into something that defies our best efforts to model and characterize it."

Mukherjee reviewed various theories about why India and Africa have such low infections and death compared to the developed countries. He looked at T-cell immunity and why it might be more robust in those countries. The doctor examined the effects of masking and social distancing. He even looked at the potential differences in an "open-air" society versus that of a developed nation whose citizens are mostly indoors.

But in his February article, no conclusions could be drawn about India's and Nigeria's low death rates.

Today as we examine all the factors that might account for the differences, we now have additional information. We know that Uttar Pradesh's WHO-sponsored test and treat program was instrumental in eradicating their pandemic. We saw the Uttar Pradesh Delta variant cases and deaths plummeted following early and aggressive treatment with Ivermectin. 


Ivermectin is a drug that is not usually used in India as it is on the broad scale of Nigeria, where treating River Blindness with Ivermectin is a fact of life. India, however, is similar to Nigeria in its widespread use of Hydroxychloroquine, as malaria is rampant in both nations. According to the WHO, India represents 3% of the world's malaria burden. Nigeria accounts for 27% of global malaria cases. Malaria accounts for 60% of outpatient treatment visits to the doctor in Nigeria. 


Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine were used extensively in India and Nigeria before COVID-19, and these two drugs probably shielded them from the lion's share of COVID deaths. 

According to Yale School of Public Health's Dr. Harvey Risch, HCQ using countries did much better because HCQ is highly effective against COVID-19, especially in the early stages.


Dr. Risch notes that both Ivermectin and HCQ are effective as early treatment agents against COVID-19. One can listen to Dr. Risch’s entire podcast, “Dr. Harvey Risch: Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin and other Therapeutics Highly Effective in Early COVID Treatment:”


So it should be no surprise that a country that uses both as a population-wide treatment for other diseases might be super-protected against COVID-19. And Nigeria is one such country.

According to a 2018 PubMed article, one of the most used drugs to treat malaria in Nigeria is Chloroquine (or HCQ). 


But River Blindness is also aggressively treated in Nigeria with Ivermectin. Even with only two doses per year, Ivermectin eliminated River Blindness in two Nigerian states, Plateau and Nasarawa.


Countries with the widespread use of both Ivermectin and HCQ may enjoy even greater protection against COVID-19. For example, Uttar Pradesh uses large quantities of HCQ for malaria, and after the addition of Ivermectin through the WHO test and treat program, their COVID-19 pandemic ended – which begs the question – why did the WHO not share this test and treat program with the rest of the world? 


The answer is that we live in a world riddled with propaganda, censorship and corruption; now we are witnessing a slide into totalitarianism that must be stopped.


Nigeria uses both HCQ and IVM on a population-wide basis, and their death rate per million is among the lowest in the world, even lower than in India.

Conversely, those areas in the world that are most highly vaccinated seem to suffer from the highest death rates. So, yes, I would agree with Dr. Mark Dybul that we in the United States are pretty likely to follow the same rates of infection we see in Europe. 

And I would also agree with Dr. Mukherjee that we need to pay attention to 100-fold differences in death rates because they hold pandemic lessons for us all. One cannot simply "wave" them away. One must try to explain them. And in describing them, two inferences are strong:

#1. The vaccines are failing. In general, the more a country uses the mRNA vaccines, the worse their per capita COVID-19 death rate.

#2. Countries widely using Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine (or Chloroquine) have the lowest per capita COVID-19 deaths.

If we look at a graph comparing Africa with Europe and North America, this becomes even more apparent. Africa has a per capita COVID death rate of 162 per million, while Europe is 1913 per million. It is inescapable that the higher the vaccination status of a nation, the higher the per capita COVID death rate. The lower the vaccination status - provided a country uses both HCQ and IVM - the lower the death rate.

India provides an interesting example of this. In their tiny state of Kerala, where vaccinations are high, and IVM is outlawed, they experienced European-level per capita COVID deaths. Kerala's graph could be the twin of the United Kingdom as it is displayed in this article, "The Ivermectin Deworming Hoax: Part II."


Former Harvard professor and NIH researcher Dr. George Fareed uses a repurposed drug cocktail containing BOTH IVM and HCQ. As a result, he and  Dr. Brian Tyson saved thousands of patients from COVID-19 without a single death, according to his new book, Overcoming the COVID Darkness: How Two Doctors Successfully Treated 7000 patients.


Dr. George Fareed and Dr. Brian Tyson tell how they saved virtually every patient who received early outpatient treatment with repurposed drugs.

Dr. Fareed explains that he was inspired by the work of Dr. Vladimir Zelenko of New York, an Orthodox Jewish physician who saved some 3,000 COVID patients early in the pandemic. Zelenko, in turn, was influenced by MedCram founder and intensivist Dr. Roger Seheult, a quadruple-board certified physician in pulmonary, critical care, internal medicine, and sleep medicine.

Dr. Seheult provides online review courses for physicians. His MedCram videos, Updates 34, 59, and 71, dealt with Zinc, Zinc Ionophores, Chloroquine, and Hydroxychloroquine. These instructional videos were instrumental in influencing Dr. Zelenko, Dr. Fareed, and me in concluding that repurposed drug solutions were often safer and more effective than newer, expensive, and experimental Big Pharma solutions. See mark 3:00.



Dr. Zelenko gave a detailed description of his discovery of the triple therapy of Zinc, HCQ, and Azithromycin that influenced Dr. George Fareed and Dr. Brian Tyson in this video. See mark 11:38. 


Moreover, Dr. Zelenko adds the details of how he wrote President Trump about the effectiveness of this triple therapy, how HCQ was ordered to be used from the national stockpile, and exactly how the FDA’s Janet Woodcock and the White House’s Rick Bright derailed this at the cost of hundreds of thousands of American lives. 

In the final analysis, it turns out that President Trump was correct about HCQ.

“The President of the United States gave an order that every single American should have access (to HCQ)…so I had influenced the President’s thinking when it came to the efficacy and safety of HCQ to the degree that he himself was willing to take it. And he felt that every single American should have access. And by the way, I’ve noticed that whatever the FDA decides, the rest of the world follows. 

So in a sense, we had an opportunity to scale HCQ to early prehospital treatment globally – This would have ended this thing. But instead…Janet Woodcock…reached out in a highly unusual way from the FDA to the HHS and collaborated together with Dr. Rick Bright to come up with the idea of how to restrict HCQ access to only hospitalized patients…essentially killing the approach of treating this infection early.”

See marks 5:58 and 7:13


After you read about how Drs. Fareed and Tyson saved the Imperial Valley with The Zelenko Protocol, you will read their impression of how the mRNA vaccine program is the product of a for-profit disinformation campaign that is doing people more harm than good. Dr. Fareed remarked that whereas he used to see only COVID-19 patients early in the pandemic, he now sees four times more patients with vaccine-related complications than COVID disease (personal communication).

Don't get me wrong. I am not Anti-Vaxx and have always sought vaccinations for myself and my patients. However, as a physician and scientist, I think like Dr. Mukherjee, the 100-fold lower rate of COVID death in Nigeria demands an explanation or at least a reasonable hypothesis.

While vaccines against smallpox, for example, have been highly effective, one must realize that smallpox is a DNA virus and not prone to rapid mutation. On the other hand, SARS-CoV-2 is a rapidly-mutating RNA virus, and creating a vaccine against it is no more successful than crafting one against the seasonal flu. It is like trying to hit a moving target one year in advance. It is doomed to fail.


The bottom line is that greed by Big Pharma has infiltrated and captured our Western nations.  This corruption has resulted in the promotion of a mass COVID vaccination program that even Dr. Mark Dybul has unwittingly admitted will result in an entirely vaccine-resistant mutant by early 2022.

When you realize that even the pro-vaccine experts promise the vaccine is 100% guaranteed to fail against a resistant strain in the next six months, maybe it is time to turn our attention to the use of repurposed drugs – repurposed drugs like Ivermectin and HCQ, those proven and safe medications that will work against ALL the variants. Perhaps it is time for us to realize that the mRNA vaccines are a colossal failure.


But what is worse is that the current mRNA mass vaccination program may be less than zero. It may produce harm. Natural pandemics without vaccination come to an end within a couple of years.  Look at the Spanish Flu pandemic (graph) that burned itself out – without a vaccine after two years in 1920.


But when you factor in immune pressure by introducing mass vaccination in the middle of a pandemic, you may never see a conclusion, as endless variants will inevitably be stimulated that keep the problem going year after year – which is the hidden goal of profit-driven Big Pharma. Unfortunately, due to the mass censorship of Western media, the average citizen is unaware of this. Moreover, the populace is subjected to constant propaganda, put more bluntly, lies on a global scale.

Examples of these are illustrated by the article "The Great Ivermectin Deworming Hoax," which exposed the use of "flooding" propaganda in the United States.



Yale’s Dr. Harvey Risch describes the censorship of Ivermectin and HCQ this way, 

“These drugs have been suppressed…for reasons that have nothing to do with the science and the medicine.”


What is the best way to get around the propaganda and access correct information? Start by reading Drs. Fareed's and Tyson's book on how they did it. Then read about their backgrounds and the early days of the pandemic. 


Finally, read about how Dr. George Fareed teamed up with Yale's Dr. Harvey Risch and Baylor's Dr. Peter McCullough and tried to warn the public by testifying at the US Senate on November 19, 2020. You can watch the footage of the testimony here:


You might also want to know a bit about those who prefer you to remain in the dark. The leading man who uses propaganda to attack and discredit Dr. Fareed, Dr. Risch, and Dr. McCullough does not use facts or valid studies. 

He does it with name-calling. Dr. Ashish Jha, a close friend of Dr. Anthony Fauci, wrote this shameful piece in The New York Times, a low point for the newspaper and American journalism, entitled, "The Snake-Oil Salesman of the Senate."

Jha’s words should make you wonder how America was steered away from the most effective repurposed drugs that now, with the benefit of hindsight, we know worked so well for Dr. Fareed, Dr. Tyson, and Dr. Zelenko. 

Dr. Jha’s words are an exercise in propaganda, “It was a powerful reminder that not even Congress is immune to toxic conspiracy theories about doctors being in cahoots with government regulators to deny Americans lifesaving therapies. By elevating witnesses who sound smart but endorse unfounded therapies, we risk jeopardizing a century’s work of medical progress.”

Unfortunately, Jha doesn’t even sound smart. The one study he references in his third paragraph happens to be the RECOVERY Trial which used 2400 mg doses of HCQ, “enough to kill an elephant,” according to Dr. Zelenko.  No wonder the RECOVERY Trial failed to show a benefit. “All that paper proves is that if you poison someone with homicidal and lethal dosing, they will die.” See mark 14:40 – 15:17.



While you read it, you realize that Dr. Fareed saved 7,000 American lives by practicing what he preached in his Senate Testimony. While you read it, imagine how many more lives could have been saved – if our nation had heeded his advice – yet were still lost because we believed high-priced henchmen like Dr. Jha.


Learn about Dr. Pierre Kory and all the court cases by Ralph Lorigo and how these patients on ventilators took Ivermectin and quickly recovered. Learn about how the mainstream media censored this from your view. 



Everyone must also know the extensive scientific database supporting Ivermectin as an effective treatment and preventative for COVID-19 by referring to the website: 



The truth is reflected in the data above, not in the media's hollow catchphrase that the "vaccine is safe and effective" because we should all know better by now. The pandemic would be slowing in the most highly vaccinated areas if it was. It is not. The countries in the least vaccinated areas would be doing worse. They are not. 

If the vaccine were safe, we would not be seeing peer-reviewed publications showing a doubling in the five-year risk of Acute Coronary Syndrome (heart attack) following the vaccination. Nor would we see a top cardiologist like Dr. Peter McCullough calling for a halt to vaccinations. Dr. McCullough states that the Gundry paper is “high science” and was presented at a respected Cardiology Society Annual Meeting. See mark 7:30.



“The shocking news is how significantly these factors are elevated from baseline and how sustained it is. We now have data coming forward from Bruce Patterson with the respiratory infection showing that the spike protein is recoverable in human monocytes for up to 15 months…

In the vaccinated, the S1 and S2 (spike protein) segments are in the body for months AFTER vaccination and we have data now with this study…to suggest that the process of vaccination and its biological sequelae could trigger a myocardial infarction. This is separate from myocarditis.” See mark 7:54 – 9:02.



The pandemic is worsening in the most highly vaccinated areas. A recent study examined the relationship between an area's vaccination rate and its COVID-19 infection rate.

The study looked at 68 countries and 2947 counties in the United States and found no reduction in COVID infections associated with vaccination status. Instead, there was a weak negative correlation, meaning the more vaccination, the more infections.


This study was published in September in the European Journal of Epidemiology. Of the "top five counties that have the highest percentage of the population fully vaccinated (99.9 to 84.3%) the CDC identifies four as 'high' transmission counties."

And "conversely, of the 57 counties that have been classified as 'low' transmission counties by the CDC, 26.3% (15) have the percentage of population fully vaccinated below 20%."

For those of us who have been led to believe that the vaccines aren't designed to prevent transmission, that is also not true. Vaccines have always been intended to prevent transmission; that is their purpose because blocking transmission is the ONLY way to reach Herd Immunity. 


Finally, those who have been told that "vaccination prevents death or severe disease" may also have been misled because there are far more dead people per million in the vaccinated nations than in the unvaccinated – and this gap between Nigeria and Europe is only growing larger. 

It is more than 100-fold more when compared to Nigeria. So when it comes to health, we are far better off listening to those experts who do not stand to profit from their association with the vaccine industry. 

Those captured by Big Pharma, and who are likely to mislead, include organizations like the WHO, CDC, FDA, and NIH, those groups whose bread is buttered by Big Pharma. Read about Dr. Tess Lawrie and her movement to change that.


Dr. Lawrie correctly notes that Big Pharma funds most large studies and they can and do control the outcome of their studies – even to the point of fraud.


Read articles like this that quote studies and data, not those of Dr. Jha and his ilk, the media that recite propaganda without facts or valid references. Pay attention to the studies and data developed by Dr. Fareed, Dr. Risch, and Dr. McCullough, and stay away from the true Snake-Oil salesman. We all know who they are.
