Canadian health researcher and former Trump administration official at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Paul Elias Alexander, said in an opinion piece published in Trial Site News, that ‘asymptomatic spread’ is false and has been used to shut down the economy, schools and now also to mass vaccinate healthy people, strongly emphasizing that children should not be vaccinated based on this lie.  

The former official said that he firmly believes that asymptomatic spread “was false from the beginning” and was used to underpin the blockades, but that “it had no basis and still has no basis today.” He stressed that the issue of asymptomatic spread was a very significant aspect of the pandemic policy decisions to be made, so it could not be based on “possibilities or assumptions.”

“This was a false narrative along with masking, lockdowns, social distancing, and school closure polices that visited crushing harms on the society and hurt the U.S. and the world immensely,” Alexander said. 

The health officials who once discredited Trump and are still at the forefront of advising the Biden administration today, said Alexander, and he particularly pointed to Anthony Fauci of INADI, who “made ‘asymptomatic propagation’ the “cornerstone of social blockades and did so without a credible basis.”

Noting that even today, “The reality is that there is no verifiable evidence that persons have developed COVID-19 based on asymptomatic spread.”

Paul Alexander also exposed in his analysis the contradictions displayed by those charged with advising the state on decision-making. In this regard, he quoted the following statements by Fauci himself:

“Historically people need to realize that even if there is some asymptomatic transmission, in all history of respiratory viruses of any type, asymptomatic transmission has never been the driver of outbreaks. The driver of outbreaks is always a symptomatic person. Even if there is a rare asymptomatic person that might transmit, an epidemic is not driven by asymptomatic carriers,” but Fauci later, without scientific evidence, changed the narrative, the former official said.

As to why asymptomatic cases are not the main drivers of epidemics, Alexander explained that “in asymptomatic individuals, the viral load is typically very low and the infectious period is also short in duration” and that although they “may still exhale virus particles, which another person may encounter. However, the overall likelihood of transmitting the disease to others is negligible”.

Equally misleading, he said, was the premise that all infections would lead to serious illness and potential death, and said that “this was not only an untruth but has led to scores of teenagers and 20+ year-olds fearful for their lives”.

Alexander cited a study conducted in May 2020, in which 455 close contacts of an asymptomatic person were examined, in which, in the results, “No severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infections was detected in 455 contacts by nucleic acid test.”

He even mentioned that the World Health Organisation (WHO) also made the claim that asymptomatic transmission is rare. 

But for Alexander, the issue of asymptomatic spread is further aggravated as it is also being used as a criterion to force vaccination in children. 

“We cannot just rush into mass vaccinating healthy persons and importantly, our children, until we properly assess the risks,” he said. He raised the fact that the vaccine that was developed in 3 months for the Chinese virus cannot be said to be safe, since animal studies and the safety assessment that for vaccines in general takes 10 to 15 years were overlooked. 

According to the former official, “one of the failings of the CDC is that they ignore natural immunity” and he said “The reason is simple.  The more that natural immunity is accepted, the more reason there is to reject getting one of the experimental COVID vaccines” despite the fact that “half the US population from kids to adults likely have natural immunity, even though most never suffered any serious ill effects from being infected”.

For Alexander, “the CDC must be open, transparent, explicit, and above all, accurate. No lies, no spin,” stressing that they should be made with “Pure evidence and truth, balanced information”, so that the public is informed and can make their own decisions.

Finally, he said he called on the CDC (US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), the NIH (National Institutes of Health), and the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) to focus now on rebuilding their shattered credibility. “must rise above the politics and work to inform the public based on truth, evidence, and a quest to help and inform. Not mislead and confuse!,” he concluded.
