MHRA Yellow Card artificial intelligence admission; Covid harms to children
16:11 Debi Evans receives a letter late on Sunday evening from Andy Morling, enforcer at the MHRA:
[The] AI tool chosen for the [MHRA's] surveillance of COVID–19 vaccines was [chosen] due to the potential size and scale of the vaccination campaign. The tool was not used for assessment of Yellow Card data, but to help ensure that all the information from the reporter [of a vaccine adverse reaction] is well structured to support analysis and subject to robust quality assessment.
Brian Gerrish analysis: The previous paragraph to this, also shown on screen, admits that the MHRA's one-Yellow-Card-per-thousand forecast was based on previous vaccination campaigns—yet Covid–19 vaccinations use unprecedented gene therapy and hence are inherently incomparable with previous vaccination campaigns—this is planned incompetence and a failure of due diligence
Mike Robinson analysis: MHRA is saying that it used AI to fill in the blanks in Yellow Cards submitted—but it is not telling us what programming the AI was given to do that, so we cannot know anything about Yellow Card data accuracy
Debi Evans question: Who is the actual Head of Criminal Enforcement at the MHRA—is it Andy Morling or the non-board-attending Dr Sarah Branch?
24:36 Pfizer CEO Dr Albert Bourla says no to a return visit to European Parliament's committee of Covid inquiry, in a letter to Kathleen Van Brempt MEP:

If you select NO [to a nasal flu vaccination for your child], you will be asked a series of questions to establish if your child is eligible for an injection.
UK Column viewer's response to Harvey:
Why do you use behavioural manipulation techniques? Is it not more reasonable to assume that those that say no are saying no because they know vaccines are useless and in some cases cause severe harm or death?

Debi Evans analysis: All rather similar to the scenario mapped out in Chapter 16 of The Spars Pandemic 2025–2028
And Finally: Remember that most drugs have two names; the less pronounceable one indicates the active ingredients—look out especially for the suffixes -vir and -ab / -mab as indications of scant testing
