Whenever there is some kind of existential crisis facing humanity, everybody expects humans to come together and act in a unidirectional way. But, the observable reality is totally different. Big pharma companies like Pfizer, which have the wherewithal to serve humanity on their own start to appoint lobbyists to further their own profiteering agendas.
Pfizer tries to spread the fear of Omicron through its lobbyists:
As the fear of Omicron, the new covid variant grips the international governments and institutions, companies like Pfizer have started to promote their pills which they claim to have developed to treat the covid virus. To promote their vague products, they have appointed self-proclaimed expert lobbyists in the public space.
A self-proclaimed News Anchor and reporter Saahil Murli Menghani posted a tweet describing the grim situation of India’s covid scenario. In his tweet, he claimed that the Narendra Modi government is repeating the errors it allegedly committed during the second wave of covid infection. In one of his points, he asked the government to place the orders of Pfizer’s newly released covid pills as early as possible.
India repeating 2nd wave errors-
👉Not going for booster
👉Not placing early order for Pfizer's highly effective antiviral pill
👉Opening everything. Cricket with audience, markets, rallies, pubs
👉NOT closing travel. Not just Africa, all international travel must be STOPPED

It is pertinent to note that there has been no study published in the public domain which has claimed that the tablet made by the pharma giant is effective in stopping the spread of Omicron, the new covid variant.
This is the same lobby, which sent the Indian population into shivers with their claims that Pfizer is the best vaccine and the Modi government is committing a fatal mistake by not taking its shot. The same lobby had tried its very best to defame India’s own Covaxin, which later proved to be a key element in the Modi government’s success of vaccinating nearly 1 billion people within a span of nearly 365 days.
Pfizer and its new pill to stop the spread of Covid-19:
As reported by the TFI, after trying to impose its mRNA vaccine on countries across the planet, and later the booster shots to drive the profits manifolds, American drug-making company Pfizer has come up with another money-spinning avenue to fill its coffers. Reportedly, Pfizer Inc. has signed a deal with an UN-backed group to allow other manufacturers to make its experimental COVID-19 pill named Paxlovid.
To manage the bad PR received whilst trying to make incessant profits in the wake of the global pandemic, the US Pharmaceutical giant has decided to sub-license production of its Paxlovid pill to generic drug manufacturers for supply in 95 low and middle-income nations covering around 53 percent of the world’s population.
Company’s vaccine adventure was a massive failure:
Before the pill, the company’s vaccine had already become a contentious issue for its reputation. Research led by Case Western Reserve University and Brown University has revealed that COVID-19 antibodies produced by the Pfizer vaccine decreased more than 80 percent in senior nursing home residents and their caregivers within six months after receiving their second dose.
Pfizer did its best to stop COVAXIN from entering the US market:
Extensively reported by the TFI, Pfizer did a lot of lobbying to block COVAXIN from entering the American market. As reported by the TFI, despite having all the evidence of being a perfectly effective vaccine, it took an abnormally long time for COVAXIN to be approved for use inside America. It is widely believed that due to its extremely low price, low maintenance cost, higher effectivity rate compared to Pfizer and Moderna vaccine, it posed a big threat to both companies’ market share in the US, due to which COVAXIN’s approval was in the bureaucratic pipeline for a very long time.
At a time when Indian Prime minister Narendra Modi is trying his best to export vaccines and other covid related services to needy countries, companies like Pfizer are proving why people hate capitalists so much. This kind of crony capitalism involving lobbyists is a hotbed for any socialist vulture to occupy the vacant humanitarian space.
