7h · A “reporter” was on t.v this morning, on some city street, being interviewed by some anchor in the station. She was discussing the “monumental toll” the nation has now surpassed in deaths attributed to kovid, and she wanted to know what was the one thing that stood out in his mind the most in his days of reporting on this since last spring. His answer?
Not the deaths, not the tragedies, the “frontline” workers, the race for a jab, the people out of work, the billionaires making billions, the elderly dying alone, the inept and profitable intubation that killed many, the governors decisions to send sick people into care homes, the rocketing suicides, the thousands going hungry, the food lines, the new homeless, the overdoses, the school closures, the business closures, the controversial pcr tests, the upending of culture, the supposed desire of so many to just get back to hugging and “normal life”, etc, etc,…
No, none of that, not even a poignant memory of some sweet family whose loved one died or bravely overcame illness. It was those who don’t believe that there is a pandemic going on worthy of shutting down the world, who see another agenda at play, and question the narrative. That’s what “stuck in his mind” (or rather was written in his script). This is the most dangerous/memorable element of the past year… those who are asking questions, those who don’t “believe”. And that’s exactly what the media wants you to know when they run segments like this. That the people who question the narrative are more dangerous than “The Great Pandemic” itself. They are to be feared more than the illness. That in fact, to a large extent, they are the illness, and that is what is to be remembered…. “Those who don’t believe”.
The push is on, and has been on to silence the questioners. With headlines such as “Don’t do your own research when it comes to science” (Forbes), “Don’t go down the rabbit hole” (nyt), or all the other headlines through out the last year that paint the questioners as stupid, dangerous, narcissistic, conspiracy lunatic sociopaths. Don’t ask questions, got it? It’s dangerous. Simply believe. It’s so much easier than questioning the same people who have sold us lies, war, and poison for decades while profiting from it. Just believe. Its a comfortable place, kinda like a nice nap in a cozy bed, and not too dissimilar from a quiet, peaceful death. Shhh.

3h · Suddenly the flu has disappeared. Oh! But where did it go??
It surely is a mystery worthy of Mr Bellend Rabbithutch.
Got that? Lockdowns, masks, and hand sanitizers reduced the flu to zero (and you believe that, don’t you?), so therefore YOU will continue using hand sanitizers and wearing masks after the coronavirus pandemic. FOREVER. You signed up for that. Not to mention, every person on earth will be injected with whatever pharma product the gods of science determine necessary, all the time. FOREVER.
A better idea:
How about some REAL science instead?

Facts about Covid-19
Fully referenced facts about covid-19, provided by experts in the field, to help our readers make a realistic risk assessment. (Regular updates below).
“The only means to fight the plague is honesty.” (Albert Camus, 1947)
- Lethality: According to the latest immunological studies, the overall infection fatality rate (IFR) of covid-19 in the general population is about 0.1% to 0.5% in most countries, which is most closely comparable to the medium influenza pandemics of 1957 and 1968.
- Treatment: For people at high risk or high exposure, early or prophylactic treatment is essential to prevent progression of the disease. According to numerous international studies, early outpatient treatment of covid may reduce hospitalizations and deaths by about 80%.
- Age profile: The median age of covid deaths is over 80 years in most Western countries (but 78 in the US) and only about 5% of the deceased had no serious preconditions. The age and risk profile of covid mortality is therefore comparable to normal mortality, but increases it proportionally.
- Nursing homes: In many Western countries, up to two thirds of all covid deaths have occurred in nursing homes, which require targeted and humane protection. In some cases it is not clearwhether the residents really died of covid or of weeks of stress and isolation.
- Excess mortality: Up to 30% of all additional deaths may have been caused not by covid, but by the effects of lockdowns, panic and fear. For example, the treatment of heart attacks and strokes decreased by up to 40% because many patients no longer dared to go to hospital.
- Antibodies: By summer 2020, global hotspots such as New York City and Bergamo had reached antibody seroprevalence levels of approximately 25%. Capital cities such as Madrid, London and Stockholm were around 15%. Large parts of Europe and the US, however, were still below 5%. Above about 30%, a significant slowdown of the infection process has been observed.
- Symptoms: Up to 40% of all infected persons show no symptoms, about 80% show at most mild symptoms, and about 95% show at most moderate symptoms and do not require hospitalization. Mild cases may be due to protective T-cells from earlier common cold coronavirus infections.
- Long covid: About 10% of symptomatic people report post-acute or long covid, i.e. symptoms that last for several weeks or months. This also affects younger and previously healthy people with a strong immune response. The post-viral syndrome is known from severe influenza, too.
- Transmission: According to current knowledge, the main routes of transmission of the virus are indoor aerosols and droplets produced when speaking or coughing, while outdoor aerosols as well as most object surfaces appear to play a minor role.
- Masks: There is still little to no scientific evidence for the effectiveness of cloth face masks in the general population, and the introduction of mandatory masks couldn’t contain or slow the epidemic in most countries. If used improperly, masks may increase the risk of infection.
- Children and schools: In contrast to influenza, the risk of disease and transmission in children is very low in the case of covid. There was and is therefore no medical reason for the closure of elementary schools or other measures specifically aimed at children.
- Contact tracing: A WHO study of 2019 on measures against influenza pandemics concluded that from a medical perspective, contact tracing is “not recommended in any circumstances”. Contact tracing apps on cell phones have also failed in most countries.
- PCR tests: The virus test kits used internationally may in some cases produce false positive and false negative results or react to non-infectious virus fragments from a previous infection. In this regard, the so-called cycle threshold or ct value is an important parameter.
- Medical mismanagement: In the US and some other countries, fatal medical mismanagement of some covid patients occurred due to questionable financial incentives and inappropriate protocols. In most countries, covid in-hospital mortality has since decreased significantly.
- Lockdowns: In contrast to early border controls, lockdowns have had no significant effect on the pandemic. Rather, the WHO warned that lockdowns have caused a “terrible global catastrophe”and according to the UN, lockdowns may put the livelihood of 1.6 billion people at acute risk and may push an additional 150 million children into poverty.
- Sweden: In Sweden, covid mortality without a lockdown is comparable to a strong influenza season and close to the EU average. About 70% of Swedish deaths occurred in nursing facilities and the median age of Swedish covid deaths is about 84 years.
- Media: The reporting of many media has been unprofessional, has maximized fear and panic in the population and has led to a massive overestimation of the lethality and mortality of covid. Some media even used manipulative pictures and videos to dramatize the situation.
- Vaccines: Due to their rapid development, little is yet known about the long-term effectiveness and safety of the covid vaccines. Following several deaths, Norway advises against RNA vaccination in frail persons over 80 years of age. Some other groups of people are also advised against RNA vaccination because of possible complications.
- Virus origin: The origin of the new corona virus remains unclear, but the best evidence currently points to a covid-like pneumonia incident in a Chinese mine in 2012, whose virus samples were collected, stored and researched by the Virology Institute in Wuhan (WIV).
- Surveillance: NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden warned that the covid pandemic may be used to expand global surveillance. In several parts of the world, the population is being monitored by drones and facing serious police overreach during lockdowns.
