      @flagmichael from what I've read 80% of the covid deaths were over 65 years old. Not only that but the CDC said that only 6% of the covid deaths were from covid alone... Also there are clearly more covid cases than have been tested and/or caught... Many people are asymptomatic. I too have been following the math for many months, also have screen shots of China's covid numbers since spring of last year. They've claimed 2 deaths since April 2020 lol. My point is that the mainstream media and establishment won't tell you about the death rate for a reason... We've given them power and they'll be damned to give it back...

      @ThirdFingerFromTheRight I've been doing the math for months. The Case Fatality Rate worldwide is 2.2% (and has been very close to that from the beginning) and the US CFR is 1.8%, with 28,355,420 cases and 510,777 deaths. covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#cases_totaldeaths "During the 2019-2020 influenza season, CDC estimates that influenza was associated with 38 million illnesses, 18 million medical visits, 405,000 hospitalizations, and 22,000 deaths." www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/2019-2020.html That calculates to a CFR of .05%, just over 1/32 of the CFR of COVID-19. The US is recording COVID-19 deaths at a pace of roughly 2 per minute. I think you need to do much better research.

      I recently watched a YT video talking about how the Gates used their charity to profit off the pandemic. alfirst.info/load/f6mOZKnKmJurioU/video Basically they threatened to hold back funding and grants to prevent oxford from releasing a vaccine as open source which would allow much more production and cheaper prices. Thanks to the Gates buttholes, more people in poor nations will die for their profit.

    I wish they were dropping in the US, and especially here in Arizona. In January the US recorded over 95,000 deaths, making it a shoe in for the #1 killer in the US, beating out heart disease and cancer. Caveat- the heart disease and cancer numbers are not compiled, they are historical. In February the death toll from COVID-19 in the US is (provisionally) 71,046, less than last month but still in the #1 spot. In Arizona our monthly death toll went from 329 in October, to 705 in November, 2230 in December, to 4256 in January. The timing has a lagging component, of course; cases from November and December contributed heavily to deaths in January. February is down to 2860. covidtracking.com/data/download On the bright side, vaccinations have been progressing. Not as fast as we had hoped, but since there are no obvious paths to improvement we will live with what we have. I am due for Moderna #2 in three weeks, the last in my household to complete them. By mid-April we will be breathing more easily, at least figuratively.

    Because Covid is seasonal like all coronas. Releasing restrictions in the summer would be the sensible thing to do but I’m sure that won’t happen. They like to maximize deaths

    ** There is very compelling updated evidence in the Data to suggest the mitigation is killing far more than it is saving! -- Right now, there is a significant decline in mortality after the first vaccine roll out, However during the weeks following the vaccinations in Dec/Jan, detected in the data was a huge suspicious anomaly spike increase in deaths that did not follow the typical viral Gaumpurts curve. (In other words it was something other than C19 responsible for the deaths) -- A sudden decline in mortality would be Exactly what one would expect to see in the data right after a large kill off. Much like what happens during a forest fire, a huge flare up then a sudden drastic fizzling out once all the tinder is gone. -- This cannot be over emphasized, "Because the death curve Did Not follow the typical G curve pattern of a viral respiratory infection, it was most likely something completely different" (ie toxic reaction). That is the giant elephant in the room, that the scientists and politicians must now answer...!! ** Absolutely must watch! Huge death spike in data in direct correlation to vaccine roll out. alfirst.info/load/goyLkXzZob-ac2g/video

    One of the problems with this pandemic is that they honestly don't know all the facts. I had Covid before I went to the hospital with my heart attack. I never knew that I had Covid. I had a low fever for a few days just like the flu. The USA is so far behind the information as not to be amusing.

    Day one: ten people test positive five die. 50% mortality. Day two: oops, hundred people had it. Five died. 5% mortality. In 24hrs the chance of dying went down. Things are getting better?

    He didn’t say very much, and certainly didn’t explain the dramatic fall off in cases.. How about the virus is weakening,? The virus is mutating into a less virulent version? Herd immunity is developing? What happened to the dreaded supposedly more infectious variants? The most frightening conclusion is that ‘experts still don’t know what is going on.

    The most obvious contributor to the tapering off of cases and deaths is the fact that the epidemics waves are seasonal, although no doubt the vaccines will get the credit despite the fact that in most countries in the northern hemisphere the CFR and IFR were on the way down prior to the vaccine launch. Get optimal levels of zinc, vitamin D, quercitin (or some other ionophore to get the zinc into your cells), vitamin C, whole food low carb diet , daily exercise, 7 + hrs sleep per night and don’t live in fear (this will damage your immune system). Bam you are nearly there to a robust immune system that will go a long way to safely repelling any virus.

    In my western US geographical area, we have had repeated outbreaks of what doctors in clinical practice call "really tough viruses". Flu tests are negative and there is no way to identify unknown viruses. These illnesses have a lot of the signs and symptoms of COVID though mortality must be much lower. People are sickened for many weeks or months and some never recover due to neurological complications. Those patients are sent to mental health clinics. Out of sight, out of mind. I think outbreaks like this correlate with "outbreaks" of chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. I have suggested in my writing and other places, that biological samples MUST be harvested and stored during such outbreaks of 'unknown viruses'. Doctors in the horror filled trenches of WWI did as much during the 1918 flu! I have been told my idea is great but it will never happen. Of course I cannot say these past outbreaks were caused by undetected SARS viruses, but what if they were? Anecdotally I can say eight out of my household of nine people one year ago had mild respiratory illness with most completely losing sense of taste and smell. Our doctors now say we have had COVID. Two of us, by age and comorbidities, were in the drop dead category yet we were mildly ill. (Our likely source of infection was from a child who had visited in the Umatilla School District of Northeastern Oregon, where schools shut down around Thanksgiving, 2019 due to 61% absenteeism due to a tough virus.) Most of us have been ravaged more than once by the mystery outbreaks. I have watched closely the CVID reports in my geographical area. I have no way of doing definitive research but anecdotally it looks to me that known COVID infection rates in these areas are lower than would be expected. What were these past outbreaks of "really tough viruses"? Have other SARS viruses circulated and been missed? If not, what are these "really tough viruses" and did they convey a level of immunity? If so, how might that have helped in the initial fight against COVID? The one GOOD thing we will get from COVID is that doctors and researchers are having to pay attention to the "long haulers", patients who do not easily recover. THIS time, doctors will not get away with sending sick patients to psychiatrists and forgetting about them! The whole globe has been traumatized by COVID and economically devastating measures used to control it. What if doctors had listened to their patients in past outbreaks and what if those doctors had insisted upon research? Could we have prevented some of the devastation of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic? Ignorance is NOT bliss!

    Wrt to Statistical/epidemiological data for the UK: The UK Covid Infection cases dropped in the 2020 Sep -Nov as the older D614G variant was dying out but increased in 2020 Nov-Dec and spiked in 2021 Jan due with the rise of a new dominant Covid19 variant B.1.1.7 ... in 2021 Jan the UK implemented a lockdown in response and this caused the UK Covid19 B.1.1.7 variant infections to drop and the death rates to follow too. The UK is doing more testing and more genomic test than the USA so it is easier to make these claims. The UK is now starting vaccination schedule in 2021 Feb and is hoping the vaccination will keep infection rates low and allow the UK to undo the lockdowns without having the infection cases go up. The Covid19 Antigen PCR testing positivity rate is a leading indicator for infection with each percent over 5 percent an indicator of an expanding pathogen infection.. Covid19 fatality rate is misleading because Covid 19 Recovery Rates do not track deaths due to Covid19 infection after 8 months later from a negative Covid19 Antigen PCR test result. About 20 percent of all people who test negative for Covid19 Antigen PCR Test and are said to have recovered eventually die from the complication/tissue damage caused by a previous Covid19 infection in the following 8 months. so the death rate is a tad higher...Also while re infection of Covid19 is rare it does occur... as Covid19 continues to mutated there is no guarantee that previous antibodies and vaccines will be effective.

    Infection rates ( and + testrates ) are dropping as well and not only in states or countries where lockdownmeasures were installed. A lot of seronegative people probably are already immune due to prior infection or crossimmunity.

    Funny that they didn't mention Gates talking Oxford into selling the vaccine to AstraZeneca when they had planned to release it to poor countries for free and maybe even open source it. The asking price is much more than it was for the poor nations. This will prolong the pandemic indefinitely and give the risk of deadlier mutations and even new strains that might be evade the vaccines totally Nottingham mention that it is inhumane. Sounds like a racket to me with the hopes of a natural perpetual cycle of epi/pandemics to fill the coffers via new vaccines.

      @John Billings How do you know know what his reasons are without asking him? And even if they are pure; you wouldn't want to believe it because he's a billionaire. The guy's donated over $50,000,000,000 to charities in his lifetime, and I'm sure he would be more than welcome to a "Rich Tax" - unlike people like Zuccerberg. Anyway, I appreciate your arguments. But I do implore you to backup claims like "he always considers his bottom line" - How don you know he's not trying to increase his bottom line so he can donate it to worthwhile causes? Look at what people like him are actually doing with their money. I don't like billionaires either, and I would rather Income earned past $1 Billion be taxed at ~95% - that won't happen anytime soon, but I'm still able to appreciate when good is done with that wealth. P.S. Also, don't billionaires technically deserve to throw their weight around, because they think their ideas are better - when those ideas made them billions? (In a capitalist society no less)

      @Kais His reasons aren't pure. He stands to make a lot on the other end. He is a businessman foremost so he always considers his bottom line. By keeping it all "in house" it is slowing things down and there may very well be new strains that get produced that are much deadlier the longer this goes on. Rich "philanthropists" tend to think that because they can throw their weight around their ideas are better. They use this type of thinking to justify the disparity in the world that they helped cause and think that they are better at helping people through charity than the government is by fairly taxing them to afford universal healthcare, etc.

      Zinc had nothing to do with the effectiveness of cinchona. Quinine was the thingamabob that does the job. The primary purpose in the 1900s was to treat malaria, but it showed use in inflammatory conditions. As recently as the 1980s one of my friends was telling us about his great satisfaction with qvel, a chewable lozenge with vitamin e and quinine available OTC that he used for neck spasms. It worked great! Then quinine was made prescription only in the US.

    So notice he didn't say why the positive test results are decreasing, so let me tell you. When a pcr test would be run for lets say influenza back before covid 19 if they had had to cycle the test as many as 20 times to get a positive result then it would have been assumed that the detected rna was left over from the last time that you hd the flue that it is not active now . But now that it is being used to derect covid 19 they have been cycling the tests so many times that in May I believe it was , fauci and the who had to come out and suggest that the y didn't cycle any more than 35 times . Now why is the numbers going down, well the day after the inauguration the who came out and said to start using less cycles here's a link www.mlo-online.com/continuing-education/article/21206319/the-role-of-cycle-threshold-values-in-infectious-disease-diagnostics

I can't remember if it was before or after that clip but there's another one in there where he tells you exactly what he thinks of "Dr fauci here's a link. alfirst.info/load/k3qih5-petSaoqc/video The exquisite sensitivity of PCR allows for the detection of minute quantities of nucleic acid; however, this does not always correlate with the presence of live organisms. The assay will amplify nucleic acid from dead microbes as readily as from living.

Thanks to the Gates buttholes, more people in poor nations will die for their profit.

    Perhaps part of the reason is because we learned last spring that Ivermectin (cheap pills, few side effects, 40 years old, won Nobel prize for killing African River Blindness, various other parasites and some viruses) kills covid (see the many videos about Ivermectin on youtube), making the disease shorter and less severe, and for those most at risk (eg, those treating covid patients), taking it reduces the chance of getting covid by 85%? Why is it so rarely talked about? It should have ended the pandemic as a major concern by last summer or fall.

If you are repeatedly looking for Ivermectin, yea it works for you, but the sophistication of the controls hides its true effect from you. For example Peru in Dec gave entire populations in some areas ivermectin and saw its Covid incidence plumet 75%, funny thing you never heard about it... you happy with that kind of media? Its like walking toward a cliff bindfolded. Since then the President has been deposed by a deep stater and ivermectin distribution has stopped. Time to wake up to whats happening bud.

    Most compromised people passed away. I wonder if a lot of infected never had any symptoms beyond maybe a cold for a few days. Would imply that it spread far faster than reported. How does it kill one person and others walk it off. Accumulating infrction? The more exposed the worse it gets makes sense if the virus reproduces slowly

      We are lucky this one was so long coming. In 1959 my father was assigned to Iran for two years. To go over there we needed a total of 14 or 15 shots, including typhus, typhoid, cholera, smallpox, and a host of others I was told but forgot. Lots of diseases out there! I think our last pandemic was AIDS - for a year or more there was still doubt about what could and could not transmit it. We got lucky on that count, too.

    Generally we see a decrease in fatality among epidemic diseases for two reeasons. 1) Its more beneficial for a virus to not kill its host, unless it becomes more transmissible after host death. With SARS-CoV-2, its transmission relies on the host to be breathing, so the strains that are less lethal should end up being proliferated more than the lethal strains. 2) Sometimes fatality is caused by immune responses to the infection, rather than solely the virus. Here we also would expect that viral strains that don't cause disastrous immune responses to be proliferated more as well. This is essentially what has happened with Ebola, and even Zika if I remember correctly. Initially the fatality rates were very high, until selection of a more transmissible but less lethal variant.

    To be honest, I believe it's just a matter of data. When CFR falls, it means the dead cases can not keep up with the recent new infection cases which are likely "not yet too bad." When CFR rises, it means new cases are falling and the number of previous cases which are "already quite bad" manage to catch up. My hypothesis doesn't agree with the completed case data, though. But I think it's good to not overestimate. I believe that when cases drop again due to vaccine, CFR may seem as if it rises again.

    There's another reason: natural selection. The most efficient variant of a virus - and thus the one that keeps getting selected - is the one that spreads the fastest, but doesn't kill it's hosts. If a virus kills it's hosts, the virus itself dies too, and doesn't spread. A non-lethal, non-debilitating strain will *always* prevail over one that immediately puts the infected person in the hospital and quickly kills them.
