On Thursday, while testifying in front of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis, Dr. Deborah Birx, who served as the COVID-19 response coordinator, was not only questioned by Republican Representative Jim Jordan, but also claimed that the government wasn’t lying when stating the COVID-19 drug stopped transmission. Rather, they were just “hoping.”
Before Dr. Brix had a chance to speak, Representative Jordan, as can be seen in the video below, asked, “Dr. Birx, why should Americans believe anything the government says about COVID? I mean, last summer, President Biden said this quote, ‘You’re not going to get COVID. If you have these vaccinations. If you’re vaccinated, you’re not going to be hospitalized, you’re not going to be in the ICU. Doctor Birx, can vaccinated people get COVID? Have vaccinated people been hospitalized with COVID?”
After answering yes to both, Jordan continued, “According to your testimony, it wasn’t just President Biden who said things that were not accurate or not true. Your testimony, that you provided the committee, you said beginning in 2021, the beginning in the Biden administration, again, these are your words, ‘agencies provided muddled and contradicting information or partial information that implied we knew something we didn’t, which they later had to correct, which accelerated the loss of respect and trust in the federal government.’ So I’ll come back to my original question, why should we believe anything the government tells us about COVID?”
The doctor answered, “We knew early on in January of 2021 and late December of 2020, that reinfection was occurring after natural infection. Once you see that and I want to make it clear to you all and to anyone that’s listening. This is not measles, mumps and rubella. Those vaccines produce long term immunity and can create herd immunity.”
She continued, “I knew that people who were naturally infected were getting reinfected. And that was quite evident from South Africa. And I’ve included it in my slides. But I think the reason I knew that is, South Africa did a remarkably good job in measuring baseline antibody with their first cert. And so they knew 50, 60, 70% of some of their population had been reinfected.”
Shocked by her statement, Jordan asked, “Wow. When the government told us that the vaccinated couldn’t be transmitted, was that a lie? Or was that a guess? Or is it the same answer?”
Having no other way to put it, Dr. Brix admitted, “I think they were hoping, but you should know in those original phase three trials that were done in this country, that we only measured for symptomatic disease. So we weren’t proactively testing everybody in those trials to see if they got infected with mild or asymptomatic disease. And so people had to present within the clinical trial. We never had the data that it was going to protect against asymptomatic diseases.”

Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
