On August 5th 2021, Mono County Officials held a community meeting focused around the Delta variant. The Delta variant must be a slap in the face to those who were lead to believe that getting the jab for Covid-19 would be the panacea for the so called global pandemic. Perhaps you were lead to believe such claims when for example, in January and February of 2021, Mono County Public Health Director Bryan Wheeler touted the Operation Warp Speed experimental MRNA injections as, "a huge game changer for us". He made the bold claim that, "the state is of the same belief as myself that the vaccine is really the way out of this at this point". Mr. Wheeler made these claims even when the county Health Officer at the time, Tom Boo, said there was not enough evidence that these vaccines would prevent transmission of the virus.
The Mono County Public Health epidemiologist Emily Janoff covered what are being called "breakthrough cases", which are defined as a positive Covid case in an individual that is fully vaccinated. If you were under the impression that getting vaccinated for Covid-19 meant it gave you immunity and therefore you could not contract or transmit the virus... well unfortunately, you were mislead.
If you or anyone you know did not get informed consent, before receiving a Covid-19 injection, which includes information such as; the Covid-19 injections do not provide immunity or prevent transmission, they have not been FDA approved, they have emergency use authorization only, list of ingredients, list of short and long term side effects , alternatives, and an individual risk assessment provided by a licensed doctor please contact the Mono County Assembly!
During the recent meeting which can be found on Youtube, Bryan Wheeler had this to say about the Delta variant; "this virus is just very very transmissible" and, "it doesn't care if you are vaccinated". Ironically, Mr. Wheeler said this while sharing a slide that featured a quote from the California Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly. The quote is as follows:
"The Delta variant is up to 60% more infectious than the Alpha strain but many times more infectious than the original Covid-19 strain. If you have been waiting to get vaccinated, now is the time."
Local officials are advising people to get vaccinated because they claim the Delta variant is more infectious while at the same time they are telling us the Covid19 injections do not prevent infection from the Delta variant.
Bryan Wheeler also had this to say about the Delta variant and viral load in those who have been vaccinated vs those who have not. "It doesn't care if you are vaccinated, If you're vaccinated and you get the strain, you have the same amount of virus in your nose and throat as someone who is unvaccinated"
This is important to note because many studies on viral load correlate higher viral load with symptom severity as well as contagiousness.
We must ask ourselves, why do we have Mono County public health officials and Mammoth Hospital representatives making the claim that, "if you are vaccinated, you are not going to get serious disease, hospitalization, and death".
How can this be if both the vaccinated and unvaccinated will have the same amount of virus in them if they get the Delta strain?
Making the claim that if you have been vaccinated for Covid19 and get the Delta variant you are not going to get serious disease, hospitalization and death is completely unfounded and does not have the evidence to back it up. Misrepresenting medical information is not only unprofessional but also illegal.
Toward the end of the meeting Sheriff Ingrid Braun continued her crusade against those who can not or will not wear a mask. Whether someone chooses not to wear a mask for health, constitutional, scientific, or religious reasons Ingrid Braun does not seem to care. She had this to say about the recently reinstated mask mandate.
"We're not looking to enforce the mask mandate, we're looking for people to comply, we're working on the education component and what we will enforce is when you are a jerk about it. When you refuse to leave a business and then you get arrested for trespassing, or you start yelling and screaming and then you get arrested for disturbing the peace, or if you decide to go hands on with somebody because they didn't like your not wearing a mask, then you get arrested for the battery"
Sheriff Braun's comments on masks must add insult to injury for those who were sold the idea that getting the Covid-19 injections meant breathing freely without a mask once again. Regardless, her comments disregard individual rights, sow division and further fuel the segregation of our community. Would an honorable and just Sheriff disregard constitutional rights and promote unlawful discrimination?
The officials of Mono County have officially resumed their fearmongering and disinformation campaign amidst the Delta variant hype!
Brian Wheeler and Jennifer Kreitz medical misinformation and incompetence (video on left)
A short clip of Mono County Director of Public Health Brian Wheeler and county Board of Supervisors member Jennifer Kreitz misrepresenting medical information to encourage people to take the Covid19 injections. They make misleading and unfounded claims that misinform the public that Covid19 injections prevent 99.99% of severe illness, hospitalizations, and deaths in "breakthrough cases" from the "Delta" variant. Their claims do not even match the claims of their own power point presentation! (August 10th, 2021).
