Making a vaccine look like it's a champion isn't difficult for public health agencies. There are a number of strategies.
Of course, these fraudulent strategies would be serious crimes. But when has that stopped the CDC or the World Health Organization?
In no particular order—-
ONE: Rework the definition of a "COVID case." Presently, the CDC absurdly allows doctors to diagnose a person with COVID who has a cough, or chills and fever, and lives in an area where cases are being claimed. No test necessary.
So change this practice, once the vaccine is approved. Demand testing for a diagnosis. State that cough alone is not enough. Chills and fever must also be present. Require fever to be above 100.
These and other changes would automatically shrink the number of cases. The drop in numbers would be attributed to the vaccine.
This "definitional shrinking" was, in fact, deployed in the 1950s, after the introduction of the polio vaccine.
TWO: Order a change in the way the PCR diagnostic test is done. The practice of amplifying the original test sample from the patient occurs in cycles, or jumps. The greater the number of cycles, the more likely the test will result in a COVID diagnosis. Therefore, order a reduced number of cycles for all testing labs.
Outcome? Fewer COVID diagnoses. Fewer case numbers. "The vaccine is working."
THREE: Quietly restrict the present hospital practice of arbitrarily writing "COVID" on patient case and death files.
FOUR: Cook up and publish false studies showing more and more people are developing immunity to the virus. Attribute this to the vaccine.
FIVE: Another type of false study—"the transmission of the virus from person to person is slowing, thanks to the vaccine."
