The World Health Organization has finally confirmed what we (and many experts and studies) have been saying for months – the coronavirus is no more deadly or dangerous than seasonal flu. The WHO’s top brass made this announcement during a special session of the WHO’s 34-member executive board on Monday October 5th, it’s just nobody seemed to really understand it. In fact, they didn’t seem to completely understand it themselves. At the session, Dr Michael Ryan, the WHO’s Head of Emergencies revealed that they believe roughly 10% of the world has been infected with Sars-Cov-2. This is their “best estimate”, and a huge increase over the number of officially recognised cases (around 35 million). Dr. Margaret Harris, a WHO spokeswoman, later confirmed the figure, stating it was based on the average results of all the broad seroprevalence studies done around the world. As much as the WHO were attempting to spin this as a bad thing – Dr Ryan even said it means “the vast majority of the world remains at risk.” – it’s actually good news. And confirms, once more, that the virus is nothing like as deadly as everyone predicted. The global population is roughly 7.8 billion people, if 10% have been infected that is 780 million cases. The global death toll currently attributed to Sars-Cov-2 infections is 1,061,539. That’s an infection fatality rate of roughly or 0.14%. Right in line with seasonal flu and the predictions of many experts from all around the world. 0.14% is over 24 times LOWER than the WHO’s “provisional figure” of 3.4% back in March. This figure was used in the models which were used to justify lockdowns and other draconian policies. In fact, given the over-reporting of alleged Covid deaths, the IFR is likely even lower than 0.14%, and could show Covid to be much less dangerous than flu.
This month, Dr. Ronald B. Brown had a daring paper published in Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness, conservatively entitled "Public health lessons learned from biases in coronavirus mortality overestimation." “The subject of this article is disruptive, to say the least, although it is not as obvious from the title,” Dr. Brown told me in an email. “The manuscript cites the smoking-gun, documented evidence showing that the public’s overreaction to the coronavirus pandemic was based on the worst miscalculation in the history of humanity, in my opinion. My manuscript underwent an intensive peer-review process. You are the first media guy who has responded to my invitation.” It’s sadly no surprise the media has not kept Dr. Brown’s phone ringing with interview requests. The abstract, in itself, contains a firecracker where he says: “Results of this critical appraisal reveal information bias and selection bias in coronavirus mortality overestimation, most likely caused by misclassifying an influenza infection fatality rate (IFR) as a case fatality rate (CFR).” Is that not what we’ve seen? The number of people they said would be buried in mass COVID-19 graves better reflects how many people simply ended up with a cough and fever. Dr. Brown added that CDC and WHO documents show that the case fatality rate for influenza was similar to the coronavirus, implying that the lockdowns were pointless. His paper questions why the 2017-2018 influenza season in the United States did not “receive the same intensive media coverage as COVID-19.” He points out that “the accuracy of coronavirus tests rushed into production during the pandemic were unknown.” And he explores how the media began focusing on an increase in coronavirus cases while ignoring the decrease in death rates.
On today's Liberty Report show with Dr. Ron Paul and co-host Daniel McAdams, the "bombshell" report recently issued by the CDC on COVID deaths was discussed, where the CDC admitted that only 6% of the deaths they attributed to COVID had no comorbidity factors. The other 94% had, on average, 2.6 other serious diseases. As Daniel McAdams discusses on the show, while the presence of other serious diseases does not automatically exclude COVID as being attributed as the cause of death, it does greatly reduce the hyped numbers being fed to the public through the corporate propaganda media. McAdams quotes former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson who took out the comorbidity factors that were clearly not related to COVID deaths, with an example of a highly publicized motorcycle death that was originally recorded as a COVID death, but even other ones such as Alzheimer's, SEPSIS, cancer, etc., and left in comorbidity factors that could have been related to a COVID death, such as pneumonia. He even left in "questionable" diseases that could have been attributed to COVID, such as obesity and diabetes. This still produced a death total attributed to COVID far less than the official number of 165,000, which is more likely to be around 50,000 according to Berenson, which is a typical flu season (not even a "bad" flu season). Dr. Ron Paul also commented that we will probably never see any statistics on what are classified as "iatrogenic" causes, or deaths due to medical mistakes, as were clearly reported by frontline doctors in the beginning who were stating that too many patients were being put on ventilators which caused their lungs to collapse. And if we include denying patients hydroxychloroquine which many doctors have reported a 100% success rate, then almost 100% of the deaths attributed to COVID are "iatrogenic" causes. But as Daniel McAdams reminds us, hospitals had a financial incentive to list all deaths as COVID to tap into the federal funds, and they received tens of thousands of dollars more if the patient was put on a ventilator. They also covered the massive protests in Europe over the weekend, particularly in Berlin, Germany where millions took to the streets to protest government tyranny related to COVID measures. Sadly, such protests and resistance here in the U.S. are not visible yet. They reminded the viewers that Texas still has a mask mandate in place from Governor Abbott in supposedly "independent" Texas, while the right wing conservative media wants to politicize this just as much as the liberal media, and claim only governors of Democratic states are doing this.
