Twitter has labelled and classified Prashanth Bhushan Tweet as misinformation. This followed with Prashant Bhushan Tweet The healthy young have hardly any chance of serious effects or dying due to COVID. They have a higher chance of dying due to vaccines. The COVID recovered have much better natural immunity than the vaccine gives them. Vaccines may even compromise their acquired natural immunity.
Twitter has labelled this tweet as misleading.
Responding to Twitter Prashant wrote back So Twitter flagged the tweet below where I have explained my reasons for being a Vaccine skeptic (with references) as ‘misleading’ & blocked my account for 12 hours. This shows what I have said about the Congruence of interests of Big Pharma&IT platforms to allow just 1 narrative.
He further wrote, I have been attacked by many for tweeting about my views on Covid vaccines. The piece below summarises my Vaccine skepticism & the reasons for this. Apart from the vaccines being untested & having serious adverse effects, I am shocked by attempts to censor such contrarian views
Earlier today @DrTedros of World Health Organisation said “Some people were asking me about vaccine hesitancy in Africa. I said- there is no vaccine so why do we talk about hesitancy. The problem is vaccine supply. The injustice. The inequality.
“We need vaccines now”- WHO DG Dr. Tedros
Meanwhile the Ministry of Health, India wrote that India has administered more than 33 Crore vaccines as on today.
Scientists and public health experts say that vaccines are safe for most people
Here’s more information from health officials and agencies on the safety of COVID-19 vaccines and:

How to reduce transmission?
Identifying infected individuals to curb SARS-CoV-2 transmission is more challenging compared to SARS and other respiratory viruses because infected individuals can be highly contagious for several days, peaking on or before symptoms occur .
These “silent shedders” could be critical drivers of the enhanced spread of SARS-CoV-2. In Wuhan, China, it has been estimated that undiagnosed cases of COVID-19 infection, who were presumably asymptomatic, were responsible for up to 79% of viral infections (3). Therefore, regular, widespread testing is essential to identify and isolate infected asymptomatic individuals.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations for social distancing of 6 feet and hand washing to reduce the spread of SARS-CoV-2 are based on studies of respiratory droplets carried out in the 1930s. These studies showed that large, ∼100 µm droplets produced in coughs and sneezes quickly underwent gravitational settling . However, when these studies were conducted, the technology did not exist for detecting submicron aerosols.
As a comparison, calculations predict that in still air, a 100-µm droplet will settle to the ground from 8 feet in 4.6 s, whereas a 1-µm aerosol particle will take 12.4 hours . Measurements now show that intense coughs and sneezes that propel larger droplets more than 20 feet can also create thousands of aerosols that can travel even further . Increasing evidence for SARS-CoV-2 suggests the 6 feet CDC recommendation is likely not enough under many indoor conditions, where aerosols can remain airborne for hours, accumulate over time, and follow airflows over distances further than 6 feet
