TORONTO (LifeSiteNews) — Two doctors are recommending that Canadians should only allow vaccinated guests into their homes this weekend for Thanksgiving celebrations.
Dr. Andrew Morris, an infectious diseases specialist, and Dr. Nazeem Muhajarine, an epidemiologist, told CTVNews on Monday that with the Canadian Thanksgiving approaching, citizens should consider barring unvaccinated friends and family members from holiday gatherings.
“The safest thing you can do is ensure that everyone that comes into your home is vaccinated and that will get rid of a lot of risk,” said Dr. Morris, who works at Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital.
Mentioning that children under 12 cannot be vaccinated, Morris implored the public to implement their own gathering limits and COVID-19 measures as well as following their local guidelines.
“If you’ve got a family with a bunch of young kids … you want to try as much as possible to do all the things, such as trying to do it outdoors and ensuring that anyone who attends is vaccinated,” he stated.
According to a systemic review and meta-analysis scientific study, the Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) for “children and young adults” who have contracted COVID-19 “is close to zero.”
Further, analyzing the transmission rates in households and schools, studies have shown that children pose a far lesser risk of even spreading the virus when compared to their adult counterparts.
According to Dr. Paul Elias Alexander, “The risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19 in children is almost nil (statistical zero), and this evidence has accumulated for well over a year now; in fact, we have known this for over 15 months.”
While most provinces and territories in Canada have restrictions placed on indoor and outdoor gatherings, Saskatchewan and the Yukon do not.
This is a problem, according to University of Saskatchewan epidemiologist Dr. Muhajarine, who told CTVNews that the Saskatchewan government should put “strict limits” on the number of people private citizens should be allowed to interact with in their own homes or on their own property.
“We shouldn’t be having any gatherings with the people we don’t live with,” Muhajarine said, and if that is not possible, people should keep their gatherings small so they can more easily discriminate against the unvaccinated.
Warning of the so-called dangers that arise from visiting friends and family on holidays, Dr. Morris stresses that it is not just major holidays that Canadians should be worried about.
“I think that clearly, the biggest risk that we’ve seen throughout the pandemic is holidays. And they don’t have to be statutory holidays. We’ve seen this with Mother’s Day and Father’s Day,” he told CTVNews.
In Alberta, the process of explicit discrimination against the unvaccinated, even in their own homes, is already formalized.
On September 16, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney announced that as part of his new so-called COVID-19 measures that unvaccinated people are barred from any indoor gatherings with non-household members.
However, in Kenney’s vaccine caste system, the vaccinated are still allowed to gather with another household if the total amount of people is 10 or less.
“Indoor gatherings last Thanksgiving sparked the second wave of COVID, with cases and hospitalization surging after millions of Albertans celebrated in close-contact with loved ones” Kenney said in a press conference on Tuesday.
“We simply cannot al-afford a repeat scenario,” Kenny stuttered, starting to say “allow” and switching to “afford.”
Kenney, who implemented a province-wide vaccine passport system in Alberta despite vowing he would never do so, continued in his decree reminding Albertans of the “rules” for Thanksgiving gatherings in his new medical apartheid system.
“To be blunt, no indoor social gatherings are permitted outside of a household for people who are unvaccinated,” Kenney stated.
“Please follow the rules,” he pleaded to the public.
Kenney’s treatment of the unvaccinated as if they are of particular risk to public health conflicts with the opinion of various front-line doctors, healthcare workers, and a multiplicity of scientific data.
As penned by a collection of Canadian doctors and other health professionals:
Several studies as well as CDC data demonstrate evidence that vaccinated persons have high potential to spread the COVID-19 Delta variant. It has been well documented that vaccinated people can — and do — spread the virus,”
Why are we discriminating against unvaccinated people, when the spread is clearly happening also amongst vaccinated individuals? Furthermore, those that have had a natural COVID-19 infection have been proven to have longer-term and more robust protection compared to those with the vaccine.”
