A health emergency has been declared by officials in Peru over a sudden surge in Guillain-Barre syndrome, which is a potential side effect of the COVID-19 shots used so often around the world.
National File, revealing that the development "has been linked directly to COVID jabs," said the "rare and dangerous neurological disorder" has been sweeping across the country where 84% have been "fully vaccinated."
"There has been a significant increase in recent weeks that forces us to take actions as a state to protect the health and life of the population," according to Peruvian Health Minister Cesar Vasquez, who was quoted in the report.
The report continued, "While Peru’s government and media have indicated that the outbreak of Guillain-Barre cases could be related to COVID-19, they have not acknowledged the elephant in the room; which is the question of whether or not Peru’s widespread adoption of the COVID jabs, and not the disease itself, has led to the outbreak."
Guillain-Barre is a neurological-autoimmune problem that has a patient's immune system attacking the nervous system.
It leads to sometimes catastrophic breakdowns in bodily functions, the report said.
The report said there has been an "unusual" number of cases – at least 180 so far.
There have been at least four deaths reported in just the last few weeks.
The complication has been linked to COVID shots.
