Experimental COVID Vaccines: Mounting Deaths Reported in Media and Social Media … Part 8 of 10

Overview

Deaths, serious adverse events, permanent disabilities, and pregnancy loss following COVID vaccines continue to mount as nearly 300 million doses have been administered worldwide.  Estimated incidence (adjusted for underreporting) of adverse events following each COVID vaccine is now: for every experimental COVID shot given, 1 person in approximately every 28 would report an adverse event (AE); 1  in approximately every 158 to 2,055 would report a serious adverse event (SAE), and 1 in approximately every 553 to 7,186 would report a death (if all AEs, SAEs and deaths were reported). Early warnings to FDA, Dr. Fauci, and pharmaceutical manufacturers about dangers of polyethylene glycol (PEG) in COVID vaccines were ignored; thousands of events of anaphylaxis following vaccination continue in US, UK, and Europe. New Orleans Archdiocese deems newly emergency-authorized J&J Vaccine “Morally Compromising”. Public health authorities continue to abandon cautionary guidelines for COVID vaccines in pregnancy despite rising numbers of “red flag” cases of premature labor, miscarriage, and fetal death. Updated death, injury, and disability reports and more, in today’s article.

Worldwide Administration of Experimental COVID Vaccines Getting Close to 300 Million Doses in 111 Countries 

As COVID vaccination programs continue rolling out worldwide, the latest numbers show that 294 million doses in a total of 111 countries have been administered. In the US alone, over 57 million Americans have had one shot, and nearly half of them have received a second. For the most recent figures see Table 1:

Experimental COVID Vaccines: The Trail of Death, Serious Injuries, and Disabilities Continues to Mount…

CDC’s phased COVID vaccination program which began mid-December with Phase 1a — frontline medical workers and the elderly in long-term care facilities — continues to leave a trail of death, disabilities, serious injuries, and loss in its wake. The tragic stories of lives inexplicably lost following experimental COVID-19 vaccines — young and old, frontline workers, cherished grandparents. 

This week we continue hearing stories of the deaths of frontline medical workers around the world.  50-year-old nurse technician, Nair De Fatima from Southern Brazil worked at the University Hospital of Londrina in Northern Paraná for 26 years, and died of sudden cardiopulmonary arrest following a COVID vaccine. We read about a 40-year-old healthcare worker in Maharashtra India, the father of two, who died following his first COVID vaccine. The medical health officer at the clinic reported, “After being administered the vaccine, the man [Kirdat] started feeling dizziness after around 15 minutes. It is suspected that he died after 30 minutes.”

We are seeing the rising phenomenon of nurse-whistleblowers at long-term senior care facilities in the US and around the globe, stepping forward to report disturbing stories of their beloved residents severely declining or dying shortly after receiving one of the experimental COVID vaccines. Could this be one of the main reasons we are now seeing increasing numbers of Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) workers refusing to take these vaccines?

A recently published CDC study found many SNF workers will not take the experimental COVID vaccines. Almost 78% of residents and only 37.5% of staff members at 11,460 SNFs received one or more shots during the first month of the CDC Pharmacy Partnership for Long-Term Care Program. Reasons for SNF workers to decline vaccines include:

  • The perceived rapidity of vaccine development
  • Inadequate information received about vaccine safety, side effects, and administration
  • Skepticism regarding the clinical trials and vaccine approval processes 

We read the sad story on *social media from Brazil of 95-year-old João Cipriano and his 86-year-old wife Joana Elisia, who were married for 63 years; both died on the same day, 7 hours apart, a few weeks after taking a COVID vaccine [*injuries and deaths reported on social media are unconfirmed]. One of their grandchildren wrote [translated from Portuguese] “… couple of farmers, good people and today on the 28/02/2021, they came to death after 63 years of marital union, a story together and a match together too. Leave us the example of union and will certainly serve to comfort us. Go in peace my grandparents, I will love you forever.” The very vaccines, taken to protect them from a virus which might have taken their lives.

As Phase 1b — vaccinating other essential frontline workers — is rolling out, we continue hearing about school closures due to staff becoming ill after receiving vaccines, and firefighters and other workers requiring time off to recover from adverse effects of a COVID shot. This week we heard about two schools in Michigan — Alma and Ithaca — which closed due to a large number of staff calling in sick or because they are anticipating such reactions. “As 70 percent of our staff will be receiving their second dose over the weekend, this means there is potential for us to be unable to provide coverage for the number of staff who may not report for work on Monday,” wrote Donalynn Ingersoll, Alma superintendent in a social media post. 

As these experimental COVID vaccination programs roll out internationally, we are witnessing reports of the deaths of nurses, doctors, aides, teachers, policemen, sanitation workers, clerks, the elderly and more, as the trail of devastation and loss echoes around the world.

VAERS Latest Data on Deaths Following Investigational COVID Vaccines 

As of February 26th, CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) lists 1,265 deaths in their system — 1,027 in the US, 129 “foreign” and 109 “unknown” — since the experimental vaccine rollout began mid-December. An additional 739 deaths have been published around the world by the media, now including countries such as Brazil, Estonia, and Lithuania — not previously seen.

For the most recent numbers of deaths following COVID vaccines itemized by country see Table 2.

The distribution of deaths reported by VAERS in the US listed by state is displayed in Table 3. California continues its lead in deaths following COVID vaccines, with 97 reported to date; Florida is next with 69, followed by Ohio at 60. 

The CDC also publishes an up-to-date tally of the number of vaccines administered in each state here. 

During this same period — through February 26th — a total of 25,212 adverse events were appeared in VAERS, including 4,424 considered serious (see VAERS data reports). As always, it is important to keep in mind that these COVID-vaccine related adverse events and deaths reported to the VAERS System are known to represent fewer than 1% of all the actual vaccine adverse events and only 1-13% of serious adverse events/deaths. More accurate figures are obtained by multiplying the number of reported adverse events by 100 (i.e., to account for the fewer than 1% reported), and serious events and deaths by 7.7 and again by 100, to account for the range of 1-13% reported. 

Thus, more accurate numbers to adjust for under-reporting could be: 2,521,200 adverse events, 34,065 to 442,400 serious adverse events, and 9,741 to 126,500 deaths to date.

25,212 Adverse Events Entered in VAERS by February 26, 2021
4,424 Serious Adverse Events Entered in VAERS by February 26, 2021

1,265 Deaths Entered in VAERS by February 26, 2021

 

VAERS February 26th Report on Deaths: Time Interval from COVID Vaccine Administration to Death

 This week we also explored the overall picture of deaths which occurred following a COVID vaccine in terms of the time interval — from the time when they took the COVID-19 vaccine to their time of death. A VAERS search revealed that nearly half of deaths (47%) occurred within the first 48 hours following a vaccine (see VAERS report).

Experimental COVID Vaccines Adverse Event Outcomes by February 26th: Life Threatening, Permanent Disabilities, Congenital Anomalies, Hospitalizations, ER Visits, Office Visits, and Permanent Disabilities 

This week we continued tracking the number of adverse events entered in VAERS by February 26th — the date of their last data upload — and the event outcomes — please see VAERS data.  For example, almost 20% of deaths are among those who presented to the Emergency Room. As always, please keep in mind that these numbers represent fewer than 1% of all the actual vaccine adverse events and only 1-13% of serious events/death are reported

Experimental COVID Vaccines: New Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA)

The latest CDC statistics indicate that 44,774,584 Pfizer-BioNTech and 42,977,312 Moderna vaccines (plus 119,271 unidentified) have been administered in the US through March 6th. The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine received its Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the FDA one week ahead of Moderna’s, explaining why Pfizer continues its lead in having administered more vaccines. AstraZeneca’s experimental vaccine was authorized for emergency use in UK end of December, and their rollout began first week of January; India’s brand of the AstraZeneca vaccine, Covishield, began administration mid-January in India. 

China’s COVID-19 Sinovac vaccine received emergency authorization last July in China, with medical workers and employees of state-owned firms beginning to receive it there; China is also producing the Sinopharm vaccine. Sinovac shots have been sold to at least 10 other countries, and they are also marketing another brand of their vaccine, called CoronaVac. All Chinese COVID-19 vaccines use killed virus technology. Sinovac’s vaccine rollouts have begun in at least five other countries, and stories of deaths following their jab — both Sinovac and CoronaVac — are just beginning to appear in the news. To date, no reports have appeared in the news of adverse events and deaths following these vaccine rollouts in China — with the very recent exception of Hong Kong (see photo.)

As we mentioned last week, on February 27th, the FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for Janssen/Johnson & Johnson’s (J&J) one-dose COVID-19 vaccine for use in individuals 18 years of age and older. The vaccine uses Ad26, an adenovirus combined with the SARS CoV-2 spike protein, to prompt the recipient’s immune system to make antibodies. J&J’s COVID vaccine is the third to receive an EUA from the FDA; it began shipping out to states and pharmacies on Monday, March 1st.

New Orleans Archdiocese Deems J&J Vaccine “Morally Compromising” 

This week the New Orleans Archdiocese issued a statement that the Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine uses an “abortion-derived cell line in development and production of the vaccine as well as the testing.” The statement advised Catholics to avoid taking it, calling it “morally compromising.” The J&J vaccine uses a retinal cell line — “PER.C6” fetal cell cultures isolated from the eye of an aborted fetus in 1985 — to produce and manufacture the vaccine. The Archdiocese is asking Catholics to receive the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines instead. 

The Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities, a committee within the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has stated: “Neither Pfizer nor Moderna used an abortion-derived cell line in the development or production of the vaccine. However, a fetal cell line was used to test the efficacy of both vaccines.”

Interesting to note that the FDA’s EUA-required Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine EUA Fact Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers does not appear to list the fetal cell line, PER.C6, as an ingredient (see screenshot):

The Janssen/J&J vaccine also contains polysorbate-80, used in brain cancer to help chemotherapy drugs cross the blood-brain barrier, a concern for vaccine recipients as the vaccine ingredients or other substances circulating in the blood can reach the brain.

Currently, Pfizer’s shot continues its lead in the numbers of deaths following administration, as reported by VAERS as well as the media (see Table 4 “Vaccine Deaths by Manufacturer”).

Using data provided by Bloomberg’s COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker, we obtained the total number of vaccine doses administered to Americans by February 26th — the most recent date VAERS uploaded reports to their system — and calculated the estimated incidence of adverse events and deaths reported by VAERS per the number of vaccines administered (see Table 5). To date: For every experimental COVID shot given, 1 person in approximately every 28 would report an adverse event (AE), if all AEs were reported; 1 person in approximately every 158 to 2,055 would report a serious adverse event (SAE), if all SAEs were reported, and 1 person in approximately every 553 to 7,186 would report a death, if all deaths were reported.

Early Warnings about the Potential Dangers of Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) Ignored: Focus on Life-Threatening Anaphylaxis Events Following COVID-19 Vaccination in US, UK, and Europe

Back in September 2020 — before any COVID-19 vaccines had received FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization EUA),  Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Children’s Health Defense (CHD) learned that Moderna’s upcoming COVID vaccine was planning to use something called “polyethylene glycol (PEG)” in the lipid nanoparticle envelope around the mRNA. On September 25th, Mr. Kennedy notified FDA Director Stephen Hahn, FDA Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) Director Peter Marks and NIAID Director Anthony Fauci of the life-threatening anaphylactic potential of PEG, citing a 2016 study published in Analytical Chemistry. The study found 72% of specimens possessed anti-PEG antibodies (Ab) with 8% of those having extremely elevated antibodies. The study authors concluded that “… widespread prevalence of pre-existing anti-PEG Ab, coupled with high Ab levels in a subset of the population, underscores the potential importance of screening patients for anti-PEG Ab levels prior to administration of therapeutics containing PEG.” 

FDA’s response on December 2nd was to recommend that CHD contact Moderna; CHD expressed, “What is concerning about the response is the fact that in the letter [to the FDA] we acknowledge that we had already reached out to Moderna’s scientists regarding the use of PEG and lack of informing vaccine trial recipients about the use of PEG in the vaccine, soliciting a history of PEG allergies, and testing blood antibody levels to PEG. Did the FDA officials actually read the letter?” Additionally, in over 6 months since their letter was sent out, CHD has yet to receive a response from NIAID’s Dr. Fauci. It is interesting to note that NIAID is a partner with Moderna on the development of its COVID-19 vaccine, and has been overseeing the clinical trials. The directors of CBER and the FDA, Dr. Fauci (NIAID Director) and Moderna clearly chose to ignore these early warnings.

The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines were granted EUA by the FDA in mid-December 2020 — and both contain PEG. At that time, Lyn Redwood, President of CHD warned, “As approval of PEGylated mRNA vaccines for Covid-19 occurs, the uptick in exposure to injected PEG products will be unprecedented and potentially disastrous. Allowing people with other medication allergies to receive vaccines that utilize PEG in the manufacturing process is a very risky proposition.”

Documents published by Pfizer and BioNTech show people with a history of severe allergic reactions were excluded from their trials. Shortly after Pfizer BioNTech’s vaccine rollout began, CNN reported, ”For the third time in three days, an Alaska health care worker had an allergic reaction after receiving a dose of the new Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine.“ Pfizer responded by omitting the fact they had excluded those with allergies from their trials stating “there were no safety signals of concern identified in our clinical trials, including no signal of serious allergic reactions associated with vaccine.” 

After the warnings provided by CHD and other concerned professionals, FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn’s response to the numerous allergic reactions was, “One of the things that FDA does very well and uniquely is really getting to the bottom of events like allergic reactions so we can completely understand the circumstances and better inform the public and also our regulatory decisions.” 

Lyn Redwood, President of CHD, whose previous warnings about the potentially dire consequences of exposing the population to injected PEG products had gone unheeded, responded: “There shouldn’t be any mystery at this stage about whether or not PEG caused the reactions. It’s a simple blood test. If they’ve tested the people who had these allergic reactions for anti-PEG antibodies, then they know. If they haven’t, why haven’t they?” 

Drene Keyes was known as a gifted singer who could “…bellow from the bottom of her soul.” The mother and grandmother of 6 was described by her daughter, Lisa Jones as “a loving and generous person.” The 58-year-old Keyes was injected with the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine and shortly afterwards, “found herself unable to breathe as she began vomiting. It was after this that fluid filled her lungs and she died.” Her daughter said, “The doctor told me that often during anaphylaxis, chemicals are released inside of a person’s body and can cause this to happen… My mom was wanting to protect herself, and it did not turn out that way.” Lisa questioned, “Why are we allowing people with underlying conditions to be guinea pigs for a vaccine that is still in clinical trials and emergency use?” She lamented, “The pain my family feels from this unexpected loss should not be repeated for others.”

A search performed for cases of anaphylaxis reported to and entered in VAERS by February 26th revealed 1,459 cases… and as always, keep in mind that these numbers represent fewer than 1% of all the actual vaccine adverse events and only 1-13% of serious events/death are reported. Thus, the actual number of occurrences of anaphylaxis could be estimated as high as a staggering 145,900 cases to date. 

Anaphylaxis-Related Adverse Events Reported to VAERS by February 26th for both Pfizer’s and Moderna’s COVID-19 Vaccines: 1,459 cases

Some individual cases of anaphylaxis reported in VAERS are:

  • 38-year-old female from California: “Initially started as numbness of the lips, then progressed to angioedema (swelling of the lips) with face itchiness. Then progressed to throat tightening and swelling feeling, consistent with anaphylaxis.”
  • 46-year-old female from Florida: “Anaphylactic reaction (swelling and redness of face and torso, shortness of breath, constriction of airway and dizziness).”
  • 52-year-old female from North Carolina: “Anaphylaxis reaction with hives, stridor/airway edema, wheezing.”
  • 47-year-old female from Colorado: “2 hours after vaccine, I had an anaphylactic reaction. I had an extremely difficult time breathing with chest tightening, heart racing, numbness and tingling on my mouth and chin, tongue swollen and turned grey in a matter of a few minutes. I took Benadryl, an epinephrine pen, and a nebulizer and began to start feeling better in 15 minutes. Following the 2 weeks I felt nauseous, chills, cold sweat, lightheaded, weak, tired, headache and pain in arm/shoulder.”
  • 79-year-old female from Arkansas: “She started having breathing problems/heart attack appearance on 1/22/21 and went to the ER. Upon admittance was told it was an anaphylactic shock from the Covid shot. They kept her in ICU and released her 1/23/21. At 12:45 am on 1/24/21 she passed out and we called the ambulance. Hospital admitted her and worked through multiple organ failure issues and thought her numbers were under control. She was released on 1/27/21 and was driving on 1/28/21 around 4:15 pm and appears to have had heart failure and had a wreck. She passed away that day.”

We also searched UK Yellow Card data — similar to our VAERS — through March 3rd, which revealed a total of 340 reported events of anaphylaxis for both Pfizer and AstraZeneca’s vaccines. Note: AstraZeneca’s vaccine does not contain PEG (See Yellow Card Scheme data reports): 

Anaphylaxis-Related Adverse Events Reported to UK Yellow Card System by March 3rd for Pfizer’s COVID Vaccine: 190 cases

 

Anaphylaxis-Related Adverse Events Reported to UK’s Yellow Card System by February 24th for AstraZeneca’s Non-PEG-Containing COVID Vaccine: 150 cases

 

Next, we repeated our search of anaphylaxis-related adverse events reported to the European EudraVigilance System by February 27th for both Pfizer’s and Moderna’s experimental COVID vaccines. We found a total of 1,722 events of anaphylaxis (see EudraVigilance data):

Pfizer’s COVID Vaccine: Anaphylaxis-Related Adverse Events Reported to European EudraVigilance System by February 27th: 1,574 Cases 

 

Moderna’s COVID Vaccine: Anaphylaxis-Related Adverse Events Reported to European EudraVigilance System by February 27th: 148 cases

 

Continuing our Focus on the Use of Experimental COVID Vaccines in Pregnancy: Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes Continue to Rise

In our last few articles, we reflected on how the WHOCDC and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), Dr. Fauci, and ACOG all suddenly dismissed their previous concerns about women receiving these experimental COVID vaccines during pregnancy, despite the fact that none of them have ever been tested in pregnant women. This abrupt policy reversal remains quite perplexing, especially in the face of mounting hard evidence of adverse pregnancy outcomes following exposure — premature labor, miscarriages, hydrops fetalis and fetal deaths. Why do they continue to ignore so many red flags?  

We repeated a VAERS search on this same topic, which revealed that adverse pregnancy outcomes reported and uploaded since last week’s article are now up to 51 — an increase of 10 cases in VAERS since last week. As always, keep in mind that these numbers represent fewer than 1% of all the actual vaccine adverse events and only 1-13% of serious events/death are reported… which means this could even be as high as an increase of 1,000 adverse pregnancy outcomes in one week (see VAERS report findings).

Pregnancy-Related Adverse Events Reported to VAERS by February 26thh for both Pfizer’s and Moderna’s COVID-19 Vaccines: 51 cases

Some of the more recent cases posted on VAERS are presented here:

  • 33-year-old from Pennsylvania: “Approx. 6 weeks at time of second administration with a due date of Sept 28th. Would have been 3 weeks pregnant at time of 1st injection. 3 days after second injection, I began to miscarry. This was confirmed by declining HCG levels. Ultrasound to follow in one week.”
  • 28-year-old who took the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID vaccine: “Patient was newly pregnant, received 2nd dose of covid vaccine. Patient then began bleeding on 2/13/21. On 2/15/21 confirmed with OB-GYN that HCG levels were low and that she was having a miscarriage. Patient has a healthy 2-year-old living child. No past history of miscarriages, no family history of miscarriage.”
  • 32-year-old female from New York: “I received my first dose of the COVID19 Pfizer vaccine on 12/30/20. At this point I was 4 weeks pregnant. I received my second vaccine dose for the series on 1/22/21. At this point I was 7 weeks pregnant. On 2/18/21 I was diagnosed with a miscarriage due to no fetal heartbeat on ultrasound. I now have to undergo a D&C in the operating room.”
  • 33-year-old from Minnesota: “Missed abortion – received first shot while pregnant (did not know), missed abortion of 5 weeks gestational age, diagnosed Feb 2021.”
  • 38-year-old female from Colorado: “I began having headaches nightly 2 nights after my second dose. On 2/7 my blood pressure was about 135/90. On 2/9 my blood pressure was 150/90 or 95 and then it increased by the time I went to my doctor’s office that afternoon. I had severe pre-eclampsia on 2/8 and was induced and delivered 2/9 with a 34-week-old baby. She had an infection and pulmonary hemorrhage.”

We also repeated our search of UK Yellow Card data looking at their most recently updated reports, which revealed a total of 27 cases of adverse pregnancy-related events following both Pfizer and AstraZeneca’s vaccines; this demonstrates an increase of 13 undesirable outcomes in the past one week. Note that the most recent report for AstraZeneca was only February 24th. As we previously mentioned, Public Health UK’s guidelines for use of COVID vaccines in pregnancy issued by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) is slightly more conservative than US recommendations (See Yellow Card Scheme data reports): 

Pregnancy-Related Adverse Events Reported to UK Yellow Card System by March 3rd for Pfizer’s COVID Vaccine: 20 cases

 

Pregnancy-Related Adverse Events Reported to UK’s Yellow Card System by February 24th for AstraZeneca’s COVID Vaccine: 7 cases

 

Next, we repeated our search of pregnancy-related adverse events reported to the European EudraVigilance System by March 6th for both Pfizer’s and Moderna’s experimental COVID vaccines. We found a total of 74 cases — an additional 22 adverse pregnancy outcomes since our last February 27th report (see EudraVigilance data):

Pregnancy-Related Adverse Events Reported to European EudraVigilance System by March 6th for Pfizer’s COVID Vaccine: 63 cases 

 

Pregnancy-Related Adverse Events Reported to European EudraVigilance System by March 6th for Moderna’s COVID Vaccine: 11 cases

 

Since last week’s report on this theme, an additional 45 adverse pregnancy-related outcomes of premature labor, miscarriage, and fetal deaths have occurred here in the US, in UK, and in Europe. And let us always keep in mind that these reported events represent an exceedingly small percentage of what the actual number likely is. And let us also recognize that each report is not just a number on a piece of paper or computer screen — but represents the loss of a new life, shattered hopes and dreams of would-be-parents, grandparents, as well as extended families and friends. 

Are these 152 reported pregnancy-related adverse events — 51 in the US, 27 in UK, and 74 from Europe — not glaring evidence of a serious issue that is not being addressed?  Why does it appear that our public health authorities and agencies — WHOCDC and the ACIP, Dr. Fauci, and ACOG — have turned a blind eye on these rising numbers of red flag cases? Why are they continuing to encourage pregnant women to expose themselves and their babies to these experimental, warp-speed produced COVID vaccines? 

 

Why do our health authorities and governmental agencies responsible for public health and safety appear to be ignoring numerous conspicuous warnings? Are the rising numbers of deaths, disabilities and adverse events occurring with these experimental COVID vaccines not extremely alarming?  Was the tragedy of Drene Keyes’ death the result of our governmental health officials, agencies, and the pharmaceutical industry’s multiple unheeded warnings? Could Lisa’s mother, Drene Keyes have lived to enjoy her six grandchildren — and perhaps even great-grandchildren-to-come — if she had only been given a PEG allergy screening prior to receiving a Pfizer vaccine?

This article contains a growing list of deaths that occurred after the experimental COVID vaccine was administered. The death reports are culled from the media and from social media, as well as from the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) and reporting systems outside the US. Injuries and deaths reported on social media are unconfirmed.  Although the deaths are temporally related to the COVID vaccination, Children’s Health Defense – California Chapter cannot claim the COVID vaccine definitively caused the deaths. That said, the symptom patterns and timing are highly suspicious, and tend to follow patterns of adverse events widely recognized to occur after other vaccinations. The death reports serve as anecdotes that may soon establish a pattern. Children’s Health Defense – California Chapter is providing regular updates on newly reported deaths that occur after COVID vaccination. As always, Children’s Health Defense – California Chapter supports fully informed consent and no medical mandates. This is not medical advice.
