Dr. Mike Hansen in NYC has another video, detailing a case where a doctor died of a cerebral hemorrhage about two weeks after getting the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
The doctor had thrombocytopenia, an inability to clot due to loss of platelets, from what sounds like an autoimmune disorder. I knew someone with AIDS who died of this in 1986. Incidents like this can be triggered by viruses or certain drugs and are hard to predict. Susceptibility is probably genetic.
With any vaccine, very rare complications may happen if there are enough doses (in this case, over 10 million so far).
The University of Colorado is suggesting that a loss of smell kit be used as a rapid test for flying or entering events. A visitor would be required to identify a smell on a smart phone. The proponents claim that loss of some olfactory function occurs in 80% of infections, and is often the only symptom. Sometimes there is temporary loss or distortion of smell and taste that resolves in a few days, which may mean an aborted infection that the person’s immune system caught in time. (Such an incident may variolate the person and effectively “vaccinate” them.) But there is still a good question as to how long to quarantine.
