The World Health Organization (WHO) announced in March that COVID-19 is a pandemic. Many countries around the globe have been locked down. The mainstream media report a huge number of deaths and that hospitals are overcrowded with infected patients. However, many doctors and scientists disagree with lockdown measures and the COVID-19 pandemic.
In our previous post, we discussed the recovery rate from COVID-19 based on the real-time tracker of Johns Hopkins University. However, 25 to 50 percent of people do not show symptoms of the COVID-19 virus infection or have not been tested. The lack of adequate testing or incorrect test results adds a lot of inaccuracy to the disease statistics.
We continue to investigate the statistics accumulated over the past months, as well as the opinions of medical doctors, experts, and scientists on measures taken to fight COVID-19.
Was Lockdown Necessary?
John P.A. Ioannidis, a professor of medicine and epidemiology at Stanford, in an article published on March 17, raised a concern that there is no reliable data on the prevalence of the virus in the general population. The official fatality rates of 3.4 percent, reported by the WHO, declaring COVID-19 a pandemic, he criticized as meaningless and leading to a massive hysteria and panic.
“A positive test for coronavirus does not mean necessarily that this virus is always primarily responsible for a patient’s demise”, he continues. In fact, the majority of victims had serious preconditions like heart attacks, strokes, trauma, bleeding, etc.
Dr. Ioannidis commented, “Our data suggest that COVID-19 has an infection fatality rate that is in the same ballpark as seasonal influenza.”
A serological study published on April 17, 2020, by Bendavid et al., claims that from 2.49 percent to 4.16 percent of people in Santa Clara County were infected and developed antibodies against COVID-19. This data indicates that the infection was much more widespread and about 50-85-fold more than the number of confirmed cases.
More doctors are concerned that lockdown measures are absolutely unnecessary and diminish chances for developing herd immunity in an age group that is spared serious disease.
Lockdown is Harmful to Health
The study at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland showed that vitamin D is required for the immune system to fight Covid-19. Their data reveal that countries in the Southern Hemisphere such as Australia have lower mortality compared to the countries located to the north which receive insufficient sunlight and suffer from vitamin D deficiency. The Nordic countries do not have vitamin D deficiency due to the widespread supplement intake.
Nobel laureate professor Michael Levitt also said that the majority of people who died from COVID-19 had up to 3 other health issues. The total number of COVID death would be very similar to severe flu death numbers. The whole COVID issue has been politicized and the opinion of Dr. Levitt and other doctors was not taken into consideration.
Doctors around the world say that the mortality rate of SARS-CoV-2 is overestimated. Every year, more people die from seasonal flu compared with those who die from the coronavirus.
Since many countries did not apply strict measures, as soon as this disease spread, more and more people became infected. As the best example, Sweden allowed its citizens to responsibly decide and social distancing was recommended.
W.H.O. now says we should learn from Sweden as a future response to the epidemics.
COVID-19 Diagnostics Incorrect
Symptoms of COVID-19 appear after about 7-14 days and about 80 percent experience mild symptoms. The disease is described as a respiratory viral infection that begins with a sore throat, fever, which then goes into pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
The disease is described as a respiratory viral infection, which then develops into pneumonia. Therefore, respiratory strategies using a ventilator, which is used for the acute respiratory syndrome, have been applied.
The ventilator helps the patient to breathe in cases of the acute respiratory syndrome. However, new data showed that ventilators did not help 88 percent of patients who were allegedly diagnosed with Covid-19.
In a viral video posted on YouTube, Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sydell of NYC-ICU said the diagnosis of COVID-19 was completely wrong. Patients who received treatment could breathe on their own but die from a lack of oxygen. Dr. Kyle-Sydell suggested that this was not viral pneumonia, but an unknown disease that exhibits symptoms of oxygen deficiency similar to the high-altitude disease.
Are Deaths Caused by COVID-19 Correct?
A number of doctors expressed their concern that COVID-19 is listed as a cause of death for many people who have died from other health complications. The most vulnerable to infection were people with diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, or lung problems.
Dr. Andrew Kaufman said in an interview with London Real that the number of deaths from coronavirus is incorrect. There are reports of empty hospitals around the world. Lockdown did not reduce the number of deaths from COVID-19, as reported in the media.
Several doctors expressed concern that the death certificates were fabricated and people died for other reasons. This may sound monstrous, but many people on the net say that their family members who died from other health problems received a death certificate from COVID-19.
A doctor from Montana, Dr. Annie Bukachek, reports that people who died from various health problems had a death certificate from COVID-19. How many people died from COVID-19 remains unclear.
Doctors Are Not Allowed to Speak
You may wonder how hospitals and doctors keep silent in this situation. Why do not we see them speaking about it in the media? This information can only be found in alternative sources, where they say that doctors are not allowed to talk about what is happening in the hospital, otherwise, they will be fired.
Nobel laureate professor Levitt from Stanford analyzed the COVID-19 situation from a scientific point of view, and believes that lockdown was a “huge mistake.” Many people had been infected before the lockdown. Some countries have gradually reached the level of saturation to develop herd immunity and to prevent a new outbreak. As a result, countries where there is no strict lockdown policy, such as Sweden and Germany, have fewer death cases compared to those with strict lockdown.
Two Doctors Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi of Emergency Emergency Care help a COVID-19 briefing, which was then removed from YouTube as misinformation for a so-called community policy violation. Doctors discussed their data from test laboratories collected over two months.
Dr. Erickson questioned whether lockdown measures are scientifically sound. He believes that the study and observation of the disease give a real picture. Data show that viral infection was widespread long before localization. According to statistics from California, the likelihood of death from Covid-19 is 0.1 percent, similar to seasonal flu. Many death cases diagnosed as Covid-19 were erroneous and caused by other pre-existing diseases.
Meanwhile, people with heart disease, hypertension, cancer, and other critical health problems are left without any medical care. The consequences of lockdown include domestic violence, anxiety, depression, suicide, social, medical, and economic collapse. Millions of people lost their jobs and businesses, and opportunities for the future.
Martin Geddes, a scholar, and telecoms expert wrote: “Major Western nations are committing economic and social suicide to sustain an enormous lie about the integrity of those we trusted to protect us. This is a crime against humanity and encompasses many in the pharma business, the corporate media, and the government. The size of the scandal cannot be overstated. Those responsible deserve the most severe punishment for ruining civil society.”
Does this all make sense to you? Why don’t governments listen to real experts? Why is this pandemic so politicized?
