Perhaps the most important point I would like to make is this: if one single parameter value is altered, the entire result of the model changes in turn.

“This isn’t even the most disturbing aspect to me. What disturbs me the most is that this parameter value was assumed, and the assumed value was at the opposite end of the spectrum as the peer-reviewed assessed value reported here – an actual value – not an assumed value to fit the data.” 

“My take? The point of publishing a low level piece of writing like this is to create division. It is that simple. There is no scientific merit in this piece (I will demonstrate this) and the message is not science-based: the message is that the ‘unvaccinated’ need to be ‘vaccinated’.”
