Firstly, Sexton told the crowd: “The SARS-CoV-2 virus has never been isolated.” Evidence does not support this.
The coronavirus that causes COVID-19 was first identified by Chinese authorities on January 7, 2020 (here).
Secondly, Sexton said: “The double vaccinated are now filling up the hospitals and testing positive for COVID. Proof the vaccine does not work and is more deadly than the virus itself.”
Evidence does not support this either. On July 19, Britain’s Chief Scientific Adviser Patrick Vallance said that 60% of people being admitted to hospital with COVID-19 are unvaccinated (here). The BBC’s health correspondent calculated that this meant vaccines were “well above 90% effective at keeping people out of hospital” (bbc.in/3rKVN5J).
