All eyes are on Gibraltar, because of its vaccination campaign and its relaxing restrictions, but there is a largely unaddressed tragedy lying behind the apparent triumph - article by Neville Hodgkinson.

The world overlooked a tragedy – Hodgkinson wrote:
There is, however, a largely unaddressed tragedy lying behind the apparent triumph. Gibraltar has lost 94 lives to Covid-19 – the highest Covid mortality rate, proportional to its population, in the world.
"A more sinister possibility is that that the Rock could be the ‘canary in the mine’ signalling a potentially lethal vaccine hazard in susceptible people, perhaps made worse by concurrent or immediate past Covid-19 infection."
"The vulnerability may also have been increased by a flu vaccination campaign this winter, the most intense in Gibraltar’s history."
"In February, when I first learned of it, I wrote to the UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to ask if they were investigating the situation in Gibraltar, and if so how."
"The agency replied that due to different legal arrangements for medicines, they do not routinely collect Yellow Card (adverse reaction) reports from Gibraltar, but would accept any such reports submitted and collaborate with counterparts in Gibraltar on a case-by-case basis."
"On March 6 I wrote to Dr Krishna Rawal, Gibraltar’s medical director, to ask if in view of the territory’s unique experience."
"I have not received a reply."
The article is very interesting. Check out The Conservative Woman website for more articles.

Is Gibraltar a glimpse into the future for vaccination leading the UK?
Seems a bit coordinated - mass vaccinations and news of "freedom". Could THEY be using Gibraltar to lure everyone into thinking mass-vaccinations are the way to freedom?
