Senator Ron Johnson took to the Senate floor on Thursday to unveil some Covid facts that the mainstream media have been censoring to keep Americans from finding out the truth.
Johnson referred directly to public health figures from England, because health authorities in the United States are obfuscating the facts or misleading Americans with their Covid reports.
“Let’s look at some data,” Sen. Johnson said. “The type of data we are not getting from our healthcare agencies, so we have to look, unfortunately, to England and Israel, that are more transparent.”
“I will give you the highlights,” Johnson went on. “But I am showing that this is from Public Health England. This is one of their federal healthcare agencies. This is from their Technical Briefing number 23, dated September 17th, 2021.”

“It covers cases for about seven-and-a-half months,” he continued. “What the data shows for that seven-and-a-half month period in England, there were about 750,000 new Covid cases. About a little under 600,000 of those were Delta variant – about eighty percent.”
The number of deaths associated with those 600,000 Delta cases was 2,542,” Johnson added. “Which gives us a Case Fatality Ratio of about 0.4. Now, again, case fatality is higher than infection fatality because these are actually registered cases and there are all kinds of infections that never get registered.”
“So, to put this in context, an infection fatality rate for a bad flu season is slightly under 0.2,” he went on. “Half of this. Just to put things in perspective.”
“Now, President Biden – and this has been parroted by media and news media – said that what we are currently experiencing is a ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated’,” Johnson said. “They don’t really give us any data to back that up. They just proclaim, pronounce that 99 percent of people with Covid now are unvaccinated. But they don’t give us the data.”
“Well, we have data from England,” he went on. “And here’s the data. So, of the 600,000 cases in England, 43% were the unvaxxed, 27% were with the fully vaxxed, another 30% were with partially vaxxed, or just undetermined.”
“Here is another quote from President Biden,” he continued. “President Biden said, ‘if you’re vaccinated, you’re not going to be hospitalized. You’re not going to an ICU unit. You’re not going to die. You’re not going to get Covid, if you have these vaccinations’.”
“Well, maybe that’s true in the U.S., I kind of doubt it,” he said. “Because in England, of the 600,000 new cases of Delta, of the over 2,500 deaths, 63% of those deaths, 1,613 people, were the fully vaccinated. Twenty-eight percent were with the unvaxxed.”
A fact check of Public Health England’s technical briefing shows that he is right. Here is the information that was reported. The circled number cited by Sen. Johnson is in the category “>14 days post dose 2” which means “fully vaccinated” as it is commonly used:
“Now, this is information the American people have probably never heard,” he said. “This information, by conveying it, I will get attacked. I will be vilified. I will be censored. I will be suppressed.”
“So, that is one of the reasons I come to the floor of the Senate to reveal this information that the American people need to know,” he concluded.
