Keep in Mind!: These guys are vaccinated as much as possible. And then some- These guys are money making machines gliding along on skates. No money grubbin’ owner or league, depending on the star power of some players, would take a chance on lettin’ their wealth generators sit out.
Sidney Crosby, was according to his doctor “well protected against this disease". Which means he had all his shots! And then he had some more of them!
"It came as a bit of a surprise," team doctor Dharmesh Vyas said. "Every indication was that he was well protected against the disease."
The Penguins have aggressively tried to prevent the disease from spreading, having players and staff undergo testing earlier in the month (checking for antibodies?)
The Penguins captain had childhood vaccinations and a booster before going to the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
Other Olympic attendees have mumps- You know recent vaccines recipients.
“Crosby is not along among Olympians stricken. Canada's Corey Perry and Team USA's Ryan Suter have had it, as well as New York Rangers forward Tanner Glass, the Anaheim Ducks' Francois Beauchemin and Travis Zajac and Adam Larsson of the New Jersey Devils”
The NHL is dealing with a widespread outbreak of the virus. Crosby is the 13th NHL player to get the mumps, joining Corey Perry, Francois Beauchemin, Clayton Stoner and Emerson Etem of the Anaheim Ducks, Ryan Suter, Keith Ballard, Marco Scandella, Jonas Brodin and Christian Folin of the Minnesota Wild, Tanner Glass of the New York Rangers and Travis Zajac and Adam Larsson of the New Jersey Devils.
Crosby received a booster shot against the virus before travelling to Russia for the Winter Olympics in February and initial tests done a couple of weeks ago indicated Crosby was not in any danger.
A booster shot in February before going to the Olympics. A booster shot just 10 months ago.
Initial testing indicating he was not in danger? Well that was a clear fail! And no ‘herd immunity’ either? Oh dear ? But then "heard immunity" is after all, only a THEORY, A THEORY that has been accepted based solely on repetition of the meme as opposed to any solid or valid evidence. This recent outbreak of mumps in the NHL handily disproves the THEORY
Digression- Herd immunity does appear to be a selling point created by pharmaceutical corporations as a way of promoting a product. As vaccine failure appears to be a real, but, under reported issue
The Untold story of the failure of the measles vaccine
Measles outbreak traced to fully vaccinated individual
Hmmmmm - measles outbreak traced to fully vaccinated individual? Makes one wonder if it was the recent vaccination that is responsible for the mumps outbreak in the NHL?
An aside the so called doctor who was surprised by the diagnosis was actually quoted saying this-
"Crosby had no major symptoms, pointing out the swelling that usually accompanies mumps is present on both sides of the face. Crosby only had swelling on one side."This doctor is an idiot. Mumps doesn't have to present on both sides of the face and it never did have to! If one does the most rudimentary search on mumps, presentation on one or both sides of the face comes up, every time.
"He did not have a classic presentation of mumps," Vyas said.
Mumps basic symptoms-
Some people infected with the mumps virus have either no signs or symptoms or very mild ones. When signs and symptoms do develop, they usually appear about two to three weeks after exposure to the virus and may include:
The primary — and best known — sign of mumps is swollen salivary glands that cause the cheeks to puff out. In fact, the term "mumps" is an old expression for lumps or bumps within the cheeks.
- Swollen, painful salivary glands on one or both sides of your face (parotitis)
- Weakness and fatigue
- Loss of appetite
- Pain while chewing or swallowing
I would have thought a doctor with basic medical training should be aware of that?
Just a brief update!
The pharmaceutical supporting media is attempting to spin this demonstration of vaccine ineffectiveness (also disproving herd immunity theory) as fast and hard as possible into :
Get more vaccines! Seriously They didn't have two vaccines. Just one won't do it. WRONG!
They did. Sidney Crosby certainly did. Many of the other players did also
They are offering up additional vaccines to players... Like putting out fire with gasoline!
Oh and it is now 14 NHL players with mumps- Likely all well vaccinated because they are paid to play not sit out games! The stupidity is mind numbing
