In the second part of our trilogy, we begin by examining social policies sponsored by the science community and enacted by policy-makers to curtail the dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemic. Containment /mitigation strategies such as lockdowns came at great social and economic costs and yet failed to meaningfully impact the spread and evolution of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Evidence suggests the social fallout alone from such strategies exceeded the morbid sequelae of the pandemic itself. We then examine the logic driving the one and only strategy advanced by the science community, i.e., vaccination, to neutralize SARS-CoV-2 and induce herd immunity. Evidence overwhelmingly points in but one direction: the mRNA vaccines were an unqualified failure. They neither halted viral spread nor conferred herd immunity and, in their wake, spawned a laundry list of disabling side effects. We point to a 40-fold increase in adverse event reports compared to trivalent influenza vaccines in the years preceding the pandemic. Medical science must now confront the possibility of yet another mass casualty event which, in all likelihood, will surpass any of the pharmacologically-induced disasters of the 20th century.
