Cases are definitely rising rapidly with the delta variant to around 72,000 per day now from around 12,000 per day in early June nationwide. Deaths however have remained low with a 7 day average of 300 nationwide and have remained under 400 per day since the beginning of June.

Coronavirus Update 08/03/21 - Vaccine Again BTHO Covid-19
I hope this one doesn't get taken down, we will see.
Cases are definitely rising rapidly with the delta variant to around 72,000 per day now from around 12,000 per day in early June nationwide. Deaths however have remained low with a 7 day average of 300 nationwide and have remained under 400 per day since the beginning of June. Hospitalizations nationwide are up to around 48,000 from 20,000 in early June.
Locally in Texas in early June we were averaging around 1,000 cases per day and now approaching 7,000 cases per day. Hospitalizations were at around 2,000 per day and now right at 6,000 per day. Deaths here were averaging 30 per day and are still at 30 per day.
It should be noted that most of the cases were people who were not vaccinated. Also it is important to understand that your risk of hospitalization being vaccinated is extremely low. According to the CDC’s most recent own data 163 million people have been vaccinated. Of this 6,239 were hospitalized and 1,598 were not even related to Covid so that leaves us with 4,641 people nationwide who were fully vaccinated. That means you have a 0.0028% chance of being hospitalized if you are vaccinated. So about 3 out of a hundred thousand people. This is almost the same risk of dying in an airplane when you fly or dying playing football.
Now what about dying if you are vaccinated? Let's break those numbers down too. There are a total of 1,263 fatal cases reported of vaccinated people of which 309 were found to have not been related to Covid at all. So that leaves us with 954 per the CDC’s report as of July 26th. That math comes out to 0.00058 or less than 6 out of a million people.
To put that in perspective the odds of getting dealt a Royal Flush is one 649,740 so if you were dealt 4 hands of 5 card stud you would have a better chance of getting a Royal Flush than dying of Covid if you are vaccinated. Or simply put, riding a bicycle has a death rate of 7.1 per million.
As I have stated previously I am very pro vaccine! For adults, clearly the benefits outweigh the risks. I have been over the fact that the Covid vaccines are very safe many times. If the posts are still up just go back and read them if you are concerned about the safety of the vaccines.
Now for children you have to make your own decisions as the data is not nearly as clear. Only 340 deaths total have occurred under the age 17 and 2,493 under age 29. The CDC’s site estimates that 20% of all Covid-19 cases are under 30. So with 35,895,980 total cases that gives us 7,179,196 cases in that age group. So the fatality risk is 0.04% under age 30. This is close to the risk of dying in a car wreck. So it is very small to begin with and if you have no risk factors it will almost certainly be much lower.
So the question is in kids where the benefits do not clearly outweigh the risks of the vaccine. Remember the first rule of medicine: Do no harm! We now have over 1,000 reported cases of myocarditis in kids with the vaccine and only 340 deaths due to Covid-19. And while myocarditis is extremely rare we need to consider that kids are not likely to get deathly ill with Covid-19.
In addition there are other concerns like infertility, while there is no evidence at all at this time it was proposed a protein called syncytin-1 which is an important component of the placenta in mammals could be accidentally attacked since it shares some similar genetic instructions with part of the spike protein of the coronavirus. This seems extremely unlikely and far fetched but so is death in this group. Also if the vaccine attacks this protein why wouldn’t natural immunity do it also. Finally, there could be other rare complications such as Guillain Barre Syndrome, Bell’s Palsy and allergic reactions. Now if your child has risk factors this decision becomes much easier and get him or her vaccinated.
I get this question all the time. What about the kids who are around the grandparents all the time? Simple answer: vaccinate the grandparents. Problem solved and no risk to the child. I still believe natural immunity is always superior to vaccination when possible. This unfortunately is not possible for adults as Covid is too risky. The benefits do not outweigh the risks.
Now if the school makes you get tested if not vaccinated you have to decide as a parent is that worth getting the vaccine. If you have other benefits to getting the vaccine then weigh those too like a team or extracurricular group requires it.
So I have no problem vaccinating children but I think each parent or young adult needs to think about potential complications prior to just vaccinating for a disease that is rarely harmful to them.
Here is a repost of the supplements we have discussed to have potential benefits.
Quercetin from 250mg up to 1g twice per day Remember this is a Zinc ionophore.
Vitamin D3 Take this for sure if you are deficient and I now recommend taking it either daily or weekly as long as your values are not too high. Remember too much vitamin D can cause issues. However, if you are diagnosed with Covid-19 take 50,000IU immediately as this appears to have significant benefits.
Sleep greater than 8 hours per night
CoQ10 100-300mg per day: a potent antioxidant that potentially helps balance oxidative stress, increase vasodilation, prevent clot formation and decrease vasoconstriction.
Zinc any amount is probably good but take what you can tolerate without making you feel bad up to 40mg. You do not want to be Zinc deficient as it is how many drugs like HCQ work.
Melatonin 0.1mg to 10mg at night. Take what you can tolerate and what helps you sleep without making you feel drugged or tired in the morning. If you are diabetic watch your sugars.
N-acetylcysteine (NAC) - 600mg twice per day shown to decrease severity of influenza, improve lung functions in COPD, antioxidant properties, potentially helps prevent clotting and with mental disorders. Caution for asthmatics as there is potential for bronchospasm but this is rare.
Vitamin C 250mg to 500mg twice per day. Effects debatable in oral form but IV did help in China. But is proven to strengthen immune system
Green Tea either drink some or 1 pill per day alternate zinc ionophore if you don’t have or don’t take Quercetin
Famotidine 10-20mg twice per day potentially inhibits viral replication and helps with heartburn
Baby Aspirin 81mg aspirin to thin blood and help prevent clots but only after discussing with your physician to make sure you have no contraindications to its use.
As always the information and understanding of COVID-19 is changing rapidly. This information is for education purposes only and you should never make changes to your health without consulting your personal physician. Make a virtual appointment with your physician and discuss your health and the best possible treatment plan for you. It is also important to reiterate that there are no clinically evidence-based integrative prevention or treatment strategies for COVID-19 infection.
Let’s all keep praying for all that are ill with this virus in the world.
—>> For adults, clearly the benefits outweigh the risks.
No. Not for all adults.
Nor do we even know the 2nd order effects yet. And won’t for 2-3 years.
BIDEN TALKS ABOUT COVID PROBLEMS...HE IS THE PROBLEM...7000 ILLEGALS TESTED POSITIVE AND RELEASED INTO THE PUBLIC IN TX.. ..HE SHOULD BE IMPEACHED AND CHARGED CRIMINALLY..
How does he explain that he knows it is this so-called Delta variant, when the tests do not tell which variant, if there are any, it is?
That’s 300 deaths WITH Covid, of course.
Not because of Covid.
How do we know how much Delta Variant is in the population when the COVID tests cannot distinguish it from “normal” COVID? Is this all manufactured smoke to keep us scared of the fire that is going out?
Good question and I agree completely.
You neglected to mention the ~100 million ppl who survived Covid and now have natural immunity. Why should they take a novel vaccine that hasn’t been approved by the FDA yet?
Dr. Coates addresses natural immunity in other posts of his. He does not support vaccinating people with natural immunity.
Yes, it is manufactured smoke to keep us scared. Dr. Coates discusses that in some of his other posts. His recommendation: stop watching the news.
I think he simply acknowledges that we know there is a delta variant and that cases are rising. In previous posts he urges people not to freak out over "variants." Here is what he said in an earlier post:
Now for the most common question the Delta and Lambda variants. Everyone seems to be getting freaked out by these. STOP WATCHING the news! Viruses mutate all the time. Influenza A mutates at 300 times the rate of other microbes. There will be tons of mutations, who cares. Some will be more contagious, others less. The more contagious of course will spread faster and cause more cases. This is normal. Until we see a mutation that is shown to cause a significant increase in hospitalizations or deaths in vaccinated or people with previous Covid-19 infections, who cares! It simply does not matter. The news is overhyping them to get you to watch again. Remember a year ago everyone was locked into the news and they had record numbers. Now their ratings are plummeting and they need to scare you into watching again. So don’t help them out and tune them out. You have nothing to worry about until we see actual medical studies showing these viruses to be deadly in the vaccinated or immune population.
Your risk assessment is different than his. What I like about Dr. Coates is that he provides the raw data so you form your own opinion.
Clearly, this doctor made a blanket statement that is false on two fronts -
there are many adults for who the vaxx would be dangerous.
Second, as I pointed out, we have no idea if they are safe over a longer timeframe. No one on earth knows yet.
