President of Brazil denied entry into New York pizza place because he’s unvaccinated

NEW YORK (LifeSiteNews) — One foreign dignitary visiting the United States received a less-than hospitable reception in the Big Apple this week, as shown by a photo of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro eating a slice of pizza on a New York sidewalk because the city’s vaccination rules forbade him from entry.

Bolsonaro was in America for a meeting of the U.N. General Assembly, the Daily Mail reports. A viral photo depicts him and his entourage enjoying an informal meal outside due to his lack of a vaccine passport as required by Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio’s rules for indoor establishments such as restaurants.

 

While his official status is confidential, Bolsonaro says he is unvaccinated against COVID-19. He contracted the virus last year, describing it as a “little flu” and citing his past athletic experience for the mildness of his symptoms. A body of research indicates that post-infection immunity is actually more protective against reinfection than vaccinated immunity, which vaccine advocates are trying to compensate for by promoting booster shots at shortening intervals.

Nevertheless, U.S. “vaccine passport” policies tend not to recognize natural immunity as an alternative to vaccination.

On Monday, Bolsonaro reportedly laughed and said “not me” when encouraged to take the AstraZeneca COVID shot by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. One member of Bolsonaro’s delegation, who arrived a week before the president, tested positive for COVID-19 and was quarantined in a New York hotel.

U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Linda Thomas-Greenfield said Friday that the Biden administration was “concerned about the U.N. event being a superspreader event, and that we need to take all measures to ensure that it does not become a superspreader event.”

“They make an awful lot of Covid in Brazil”

by John Ward

But does the new variant add up to more than a hill of beans?

Episode #113, in which The Slog deconstructs the fake news coffee-grinder of doom emitted by the media on a daily basis.

 

The “role” of the Brazilian variant in whatever plan lies behind Covysteria is fairly easy to determine: it seems at first sight to make herd immunity a hopeless goal, because Sars Cov2 is mutating quite rapidly….”experts say that the existing vaccines may well be ineffective against the new strain”.

First of all, we need to eschew the route of following science (as defined by the re-writers of it) and instead return to the sanity of Truth. Covid19 is behaving like any other seasonal virus: rebuffed by natural or “vaccinated” resistance, it changes its modus operandum. This is the very reason I never take the annual flu vaccine, because it almosts always fails to work on this year’s virus. Nobody has ever thoroughly investigated this flaw in Pharma vaccine marketing, but it is real enough.

Second, viruses adapt their form of attack to suit the resistance, climate and culture they find. Even if the new 501Y.V3 nasty has a high death rate in Brazil, that does not mean it will have the same rate in, say, the UK or the US. Early on in this tragicomedy of errors (March 2020) I predicted that the Chinese death rate would not be repeated in most of the First World, and this has proved to be true. Despite all the alarmist raw numbers and case v death sleight of hand used by medical bureaucrats and Leftist bedwetters, the bottom line so far is that SarsCov2 has largely replaced flu, not added to the global cull of the elderly.
