Are COVID-19 Death Rates Falsified?
By Neenah Payne
When anyone questions the government’s COVID-19 policies, the first response most people have is “What about all the deaths?” The COVID-19 deaths have been used to justify the lockdown which has put over 38 million Americans out of work, cost the nation over $2 trillion, has shut the schools for a semester and is leading to a record number of suicides. Doctors and nurses at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, in the San Francisco Bay Area report deaths by suicide far exceed COVID-19 deaths.
The threat of deaths of millions of Americans from the virus is being used to justify wearing masks, social distancing, contact tracing, and a possibly mandatory rushed, untested vaccine. Most Americans assume that the COVID-19 policies are based on solid data and reliable health science. What if the deaths reported for COVID-19 are not accurate? What if they are being massively inflated several ways?
Feds classifying all coronavirus patient deaths as ‘COVID-19’ deaths, regardless of cause says: “The federal government is classifying the deaths of patients infected with the coronavirus as COVID-19 deaths, regardless of any underlying health issues that could have contributed to the loss of someone’s life. Dr. Deborah Birx, the response coordinator for the White House coronavirus task force, said “There are other countries that if you had a pre-existing condition, and let’s say the virus caused you to go to the ICU [intensive care unit] and then have a heart or kidney problem, some countries are recording that as a heart issue or a kidney issue and not a COVID-19 death. “The intent is … if someone dies with COVID-19, we are counting that,” she added.”
Dr. Birx Admits US Massively Inflates COVID-19 Death Rates!
Notice what Dr. Deborah Birx said: “If someone dies WITH COVID-19, we are counting that”. In other words, she is admitting that people who are known not to have died FROM COVID-19 are counted as COVID-19 deaths if they test positive for the virus. This means that people who go to the ICU and die from cancer, heart attacks, strokes, car accidents, shootings, falls, suicide, etc. are counted as deaths FROM COVID-19 because the person tested positive.
Yet, it is well known that the COVID-19 test gives false positives. The following article shows that the false positives can be as high as 80%. So, that means, the death rates FROM COVID-19 should be reduced by at least 80%. However, the deaths rates should not include anyone who dies FROM another illness as having died from COVID-19.
Choosing Life reports:
PCR tests are not accurate. A March 25, 2020 paper by Carver and Jones reported that it is not possible to assess the accuracy of PCR tests because “There are little public data on the false positive and false negative rates of the various RT-PCR based tests.” A false positive test means that you are diagnosed with COVID-19 when you don’t actually have it. One of the only studies to date that has attempted to estimate the frequency of false positives is Zhuang et al., “Potential false-positive rate among the ‘asymptomatic infected individuals’ in close contacts of COVID-19 patients”, Chinese Journal of Epidemiology, 2020, 41(4): 485-488. They concluded that up to 80 percent of non-symptomatic people who test positive for the coronavirus may not actually have it.”
Dr. Birx admits that other countries record the deaths accurately and do not inflate the data by claiming people with pre-existing conditions died from COVID-19 just because they may have tested positive. Dr. Birx is openly admitting that the policy adopted by the US massively inflates the number of deaths from the virus! So, any policies based on that falsified data are questionable especially when they have such unprecedented consequences for the economy and our constitutional freedoms. Massively inflating the number of deaths FROM COVID-19 makes this virus seem like a deadly pandemic that justifies unprecedented measures to “save millions of lives”. However, if the real statistics were used, none of these draconian policies would be accepted as justified.
Choosing Life says:
Many people are afraid of even asking whether 5G is playing a role in the COVID-19 disease that has shut down much of the world. It is similar to the fear that has prevented people from questioning the orders to stay home, wear masks, and keep six feet away from each other…. The measures that have been put in place, and accepted without question, are ineffective, destructive, and anti-life.
Death rates in the United States have been going down, not up, since the beginning of the year. If you pay attention to the news, you might assume that record numbers of people are dying. The opposite is true. Not only has overall mortality for the United States been going steadily downward since January, but mortality has been substantially lower this year than last year.
The article lists the weekly mortality statistics for the United States as reported by the Centers for Disease Control for the first 15 weeks of 2019 and 2020 with a total of 865,181 for 2019 and a total of 819,659 for 2020. So – no “epidemic”! The article says: “Everything that we have been doing to address the pandemic has more to do with politics and fear than with reality. It is time to re-open society, to take off our masks, and to open our eyes to what is really happening to our world.”
ER Doctors Pressured to List COVID-19 on Death Certificates!
The economic incentive to add COVID-19 to diagnostic lists and death certificates is clear and does not require any conspiracy. When Drs. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi of Accelerated Urgent Care held a press conference last week, their goal was to galvanize policymakers to reopen the economy. The California-based hospital owners may have uncorked a bigger story.
During their long discussion with reporters, Dr. Erickson noted he has spoken to numerous physicians who say they are being pressured to add COVID-19 to death certificates and diagnostic lists—even when the novel coronavirus appears to have no relation to the victim’s cause of death. “They say, ‘You know, it’s interesting. When I’m writing up my death report I’m being pressured to add Covid,’” Erickson said. “Why is that? Why are we being pressured to add Covid? To maybe increase the numbers, and make it look a little bit worse than it is?
The article explains:
Not all states have taken an approach as direct as Illinois’s, but even where state guidelines don’t call for listing the mere presence of COVID-19 as the cause of death, it appears hospital administrators are taking a proactive role. When a reporter asked Erickson who was applying the alleged pressure on physicians, he said it was hospital administration. “We’re being pressured in-house to add Covid to the diagnostic list when we think it has nothing to do with the actual cause of death,” Erickson said.
Hospitals Rewarded For Falsifying COVID-19 Data?
The article adds:
Earlier this month, Illinois’s top health official explained that any victim diagnosed with the novel coronavirus would be classified as a COVID-19 death—regardless of whether it contributed to the patient’s death. “If you died of a clear alternate cause, but you had Covid at the same time, it’s still listed as a Covid death,” Dr. Ngozi Ezike, the director of Illinois’s Department of Public Health, explained to reporters.
The article explains the financial incentives for data falsification. It says:
As Minnesota lawmaker and longtime family practitioner Dr. Scott Jensen recently observed, hospitals are incentivized to pressure physicians to include COVID-19 on death certificates and discharge papers, since the CARES Act increases Medicare payments to hospitals treating COVID-19 victims.
Hospital administrators might well want to see COVID-19 attached to a discharge summary or a death certificate. Why? Because if it’s a straightforward, garden-variety pneumonia that a person is admitted to the hospital for—if they’re Medicare—typically, the diagnosis-related group lump sum payment would be $5,000,” said Jensen, whose claim was fact-checked by USA Today. “But if it’s COVID-19 pneumonia, then it’s $13,000, and if that COVID-19 pneumonia patient ends up on a ventilator, it goes up to $39,000.
The article adds:
By creating a massive federal program that links goosed Medicare payments to COVID-19 treatments, the feds incentivized hospitals to add COVID-19 to diagnostic lists and death certificates. It also incentivized hospitals to get patients on ventilators, which may have done more harm than good, as hospitals have reported unusually high fatality rates for COVID-19 patients on ventilators.
Hospital Payments and the COVID-19 Death Count said on April 21 “Jensen himself said in a phone interview that he was not alleging widespread medical fraud. “Do I think people are misclassifying? No,” Jensen said. He said his concerns centered on what he deemed “less precise standards” for certifying deaths promulgated by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and how deaths classified as COVID-19 without corroborating positive test results could lead to an over-counting.
Financial Rewards for Using Deadly Ventilators!
Sen. Scott Jensen, R-Minn., a physician in Minnesota, was interviewed by “The Ingraham Angle” host Laura Ingraham on April 8 on Fox News and claimed hospitals get paid more if Medicare patients are listed as having COVID-19 and get three times as much money if they need a ventilator.
The claim was published April 9 by The Spectator, a conservative publication. WorldNetDaily shared it April 10 and, according to Snopes, a related meme was shared on social media in mid-April. Jensen took it to his own Facebook page April 15, saying, in part:
How can anyone not believe that increasing the number of COVID-19 deaths may create an avenue for states to receive a larger portion of federal dollars. Already some states are complaining that they are not getting enough of the CARES Act dollars because they are having significantly more proportional COVID-19 deaths.
The article adds:
Jensen clarified in the video that he doesn’t think physicians are “gaming the system” so much as other “players,” such as hospital administrators, who he said may pressure physicians to cite all diagnoses, including “probable” COVID-19, on discharge papers or death certificates to get the higher Medicare allocation allowed under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act. Past practice, Jensen said, did not include probabilities.
The article concludes:
Jensen did not return an email request from USA TODAY for comment about his claim. USA TODAY reached out to Marty Makary, a surgeon and professor of health policy and management at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, about the claim. Makary said in an email April 21 that “what Scott Jensen said sounds right to me.” Makary did not elaborate, answer additional questions or respond to a request for an interview.
Nearly 90% of COVID-19 Patients on Ventilators Die!
Financial incentives for putting COVID-19 patients on ventilators is especially dangerous as the article Nearly 90% of COVID-19 patients put on ventilators in New York’s largest health system died, study finds points out:
In his April 16 article, ICU Doctors Know Best, Dr. Mark Sircus links to a dramatic video by Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell, an emergency room and critical care doctor at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn. He describes the desperate situation doctors in Intensive Care Units and ERs all across America are in now trying to understand how to treat COVID-19 which he has described in other videos as “a new disease”.
Dr. Kyle-Sidell explains that when he opened an ICU nine days ago, he thought he would be treating Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). Every hospital in the country is preparing to treat ARDS. However, everything he has seen in those nine days has led him to believe that COVID-19 is not ARDS. He has seen phenomena that don’t make sense in the context of treating a viral pneumonia.
Dr Cameron Kyle Sidell: Use oxygen as the first line of treatment for Covid19, NOT ventilators is a video by Del Bigtree of The Highwire. It includes two videos of Dr. Kyle-Sidell that have gone viral around the world discussing his findings about COVID-19 patients. Bigtree reports that Dr. Kyle-Sidell fears that putting COVID-19 patients on ventilators may be killing them because their lungs don’t need the support ventilators provide. Instead, Dr. Kyle-Sidell is treating COVID-19 patients with oxygen because they are oxygen-deficient. Bigtree says deaths reported to be from COVID-19 may be from the use of ventilators.
In the COVID Ventilation Round Table video, Dr. Kyle-Sidell says he is seeing injuries caused by the use of ventilators for COVID-19 patients. COVID 19: Why are these patients hypoxic? attempts to explain why COVID-19 patients lack oxygen.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Vs. Ventilators for Respiratory Virus -Response to Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell is a video by Dr. Jason Sonners in which he responds to the questions raised by Dr. Kyle-Sidell about the best ways to treat COVID-19 patients who are starved for oxygen. Dr. Sonners agreed that rather than using ventilators, it may be better to use Hyperbaric Oxygen chambers.
Sheriff: Falsifying Death Certificates Is a Crime
In Sheriffs: We Took An Oath To The Constitution, Not to Governors & Lockdowns, Sheriff Leaf of Barry County, Michigan (3rd interview in video below) says he believes doctors all across America are recording deaths as being from COVID-19 when they are not because there is a financial incentive to falsify the records. Sheriff Leaf says it’s a crime that needs to be investigated because it’s illegal to falsify death certificates.
A death certificate is an official document that declares and verifies a person’s death for the purposes of national health statistics….
The official document must be completed by a certified medical examiner or it is not valid. Producing a fake document can carry a number of penalties depending on the use of the item in both local and federal courts, which often results in the classification of the crime as a felony.
State and United States officials expect coronavirus deaths to rise sharply in coming weeks, but what counts as a COVID-19-related fatality is a new source of controversy. MPR News reported last week on a change in the way the disease appears on death certificates, regardless of whether someone was confirmed to have it. That shift has received praise from some quarters, but also spawned backlash and suggestions of ulterior motives.
It’s unlikely there will ever be a precise count of this disease’s toll. Last week, the National Vital Statistics System, which is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, provided new guidance for those who submit death certificates. It said they should list coronavirus if it was assumed to cause or contribute to a death…. Ideally, people would have been tested before they died or after. But restrictions on tests and other considerations are preventing that in some cases….
Minnesota follows the lead of that federal agency and advised the state’s medical community of the change in practice on Friday. While some people and public health experts say it will provide a fuller picture of how lethal the disease is, others call it irresponsible and contend it will artificially inflate numbers. Republican state Sen. Jim Abeler, a prominent lawmaker on health matters in the Legislature, tweeted out his concern Monday.
Inflating the #COVIDー19 body count. Looks like @mnhealth wants to include every possible death in the Covid tally even if incidental. @scottjensen says he has never seen such a heavy hand in coaching physicians in terms of the diagnosis that should go on a death certificate.
— Jim Abeler (@jimabeler) April 6, 2020
Abeler isn’t pushing the theories about political or financial motives. But he said there should be precision when assigning a cause of death. “I don’t think the death certificate is a ‘maybe’ document. There shouldn’t be assumptions on there,” Abeler said in a phone interview Tuesday. “It should be the best available information. It should be with the highest degree of certainty. The minute we put assumptions and maybes on the death certificate, we now have a certificate that is meaningless and it’s an opinion document.” Abeler and others who share his view also say there needs to be a clear distinction between dying from coronavirus and dying with it.”
Wildly Misguided COVID-19 Policies
The White House Corona Task Force has created the following situation:
1 – Faulty COVID-19 Data: Because the White House Corona Task Force uses a faulty test and lists people who tested positive (died WITH COVID-19) as people who died FROM COVID-19, the death rates are massively inflated. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, & Economic Security (CARES) Act provides incentives that encourage hospital administrators to pressure doctors to include COVID-19 on death certificates and discharge papers – further falsifying COVID-19 data. Hospitals are paid more for putting COVID-19 patients on ventilators although that kills about 90% of them – further inflating the COVID-19 death rate!
2 – Unprecedented Lockdown: The Task Force has used that faulty data to justify an unprecedented lockdown, masks, social distancing, contact tracing, and later a possibly mandatory untested vaccine. Dr Dan Erickson and Dr Artin Massihi counter the official narrative is a video in which these front-line doctors in California in a one-hour meeting with reporters discuss conclusions they drew from the data they collected about COVID-19. They report that their findings show COVID-19 is similar to a seasonal flu we have every year. Therefore, they say we should end the lockdown now because it is not necessary and the costs are too high. Those costs are not just economic — as astronomical as those are.
Over 38 million Americans have lost their jobs since March. The costs include loss of revenue, depression, alcoholism, spousal abuse, child abuse, suicide, etc. These society-destroying costs will mount unless the lockdown is ended NOW! They point out that these things “are significantly more detrimental to society than a virus that has proven similar in nature to the seasonal flu we have every year”. In other words – the “cure” is much worse than the disease! The policy has been a dangerous over-reaction.
Dr. Erickson read their joint statement which says: “We also need to put measures in place so economic shutdown like this does not happen again. We want to make sure that we understand that quarantining the sick is what we do not quarantining the healthy. We need to make sure if you are going to dance on someone’s constitutional rights, you better have a good reason. You better have a really good scientific reason and not just theory.”
Dr. Erickson and Dr. Massihi point out that Emergency Room physicians across the country are coming to the same conclusions they have. Their recommendations are in line with those of a growing number of prominent doctors. It makes sense for our health policy to be based now on solid data from the field rather than on speculative models that are destroying our economy and undermining our freedoms.
The article $660 Million Spent on 30+ Field Hospitals, Most Had ZERO Patients includes a video where Sayer Ji of GreenMedInfo reports on a new NPR investigation which reveals that despite $660 million in federal spending to set up 30+ field hospitals for the anticipated catastrophic case load from COVID-19, most of the emergency field hospitals had ZERO patients. Sayer Ji says COVID-19 policies have been a “controlled demolition of our economy and our social structure”. He describes these draconian policies as “gulag-level social engineering”.
WSJ Article: Is The Coronavirus As Deadly As They Say?
The March 27 video Questioning Conventional Wisdom in the COVID-19 Crisis interviews Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine at Stanford University. He is a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research and a senior fellow at both the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research and the Stanford Freeman Spogli Institute.
Dr. Bhattacharya’s March 24 Wall Street Journal article “Is The Coronavirus As Deadly As They Say?” questions the premise that “coronavirus would kill millions without shelter-in-place orders and quarantines.” In the article, he suggests that “there’s little evidence to confirm that premise—and projections of the death toll could plausibly be orders of magnitude too high.”
The video quotes Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease at the National Institute of Health who is a member of the White House Corona Task Force, as saying “The flu has a mortality rate of 0.1%. This (COVID-19) has a mortality rate of ten times that.” However, Dr. Bhattacharya says that the mortality rate for COVID-19 is 0.01.%!
The video points out that “It’s not popular right now to question conventional wisdom on sheltering in place, but Dr. Bhattacharya makes a strong case for challenging it, based in economics and science. His research used data collected from hotspots around the world and his background as a doctor, a medical researcher, and an economist.”
Dr. Bhattacharya explains that there is a lot of debate in the medical community about what the correct numbers are – and we should be honest about that. The policy makers plugged the worst-case scenarios into their policies and newspapers reported their alarming views which the public accepted as scientific fact that justified the lockdown of the society and destruction of the economy.
Dr. Bhattacharya believes COVID-19 is a deadly virus, but says that antibody testing on a representative population locally and nation-wide must be done to determine HOW deadly it is – and that test just became available a few weeks before this interview. He said he hoped that results would be available by the end of April – if everything goes right. On April 17 in The Fight against COVID-19: An Update from Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, he reported that local tests confirmed that the COVID-19 mortality rate is 0.01% — like a seasonal flu. He will soon publish the data from two larger studies – one with Major League Baseball. Other groups in the US and around the world are planning to do similar studies now.
Dr. Bhattacharya warns that the lockdown could cause a global economic collapse that could kill millions of people! He says the rise in GDP in the 20th century pulled billions of people out of poverty and raised life expectancy everywhere. It that gets reversed, it means many lives will be shortened unnecessarily. So, it’s vital now to get the data and policies right – and not to overreact in ways that destroy society.
Epidemiologist Says Lockdown Is The Wrong Policy!
Epidemiologist Says Lockdown Is The Wrong Policy! shows that epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski explains that we are experiencing horrific consequences now of bad policy decisions! Social distancing has cost US taxpayers two trillion dollars! Lockdown has severe consequences for social life and depression will surge. Closing the schools was one of the most destructive actions the government has taken.
Dr. Wittkowski says that the best way to solve the COVID-19 crisis is with “herd immunity” – not with a lockdown or vaccines. He explains that it’s very important to keep the schools open so kids mingle and get herd immunity as fast as possible. Nursing homes should be closed for about four weeks. He says any respiratory disease goes for two weeks, peaks, goes for another two weeks — and then is gone!
“Social distancing” to “flatten the curve” prolongs the crisis! Further, the reported “second wave” will be a direct consequence of “flattening the curve” with social distancing – and will be used to justify another lockdown. He says COVID-19 was nothing to be scared of. It is just a mild seasonal flu. If the schools and business had remained open, we would have herd immunity now and there could not be a second wave in the fall. However, social distancing is almost guaranteed to CREATE a second wave in the autumn! Herd immunity typically lasts for a couple of years.
Since viruses cannot easily spread outdoors in the spring, one of the best forms of containment is for people to go outdoors now. “Social distancing” — staying indoors — keeps the VIRUS healthy. Since people can get immunity from a flu naturally, a vaccine is not necessary.
What’s At Stake For Americans Now? shows the dire consequences that may be ahead for America if the lockdown is not stopped immediately. The World Health Organization has recommended that authorities enter your home and remove whomever they deem to be infected – using the test known to give false positives! This is a direct violation of the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution.
The US Attorney General has asked for powers to hold Americans indefinitely – in violation of the Fifth and Sixth Amendments. Under the Continuity of Government plan, if Trump and Pence get the flu, Canadian-born 4-star General Terrence O’Shaughnessy, Commander of NORAD and USNORTHCOM, will become President. That violates the Constitutional chain of command. It means COVID-19 would be used to justify a military coup.
Bill Gates says that everyone must remain under house arrest for 12-18 months until forced to accept his mandatory vaccine – in violation of the Nuremberg Code.
Top Doctor Exposes COVID-19 Plans of Deep State
Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai has four doctorate degrees from MIT and holds the patent on the invention of email! He is running for the US Senate from Massachusetts on the platform of “Truth, Freedom, Health”. In his interview Top Doctor EXPOSES EVERYTHING The Deep State Is Trying To Hide About CV, Dr. Shiva says we are moving toward a top-down medical system totally controlled by Big Pharma, Big Ag, and big vaccine manufacturers. The utopia of the “elite” has 17 goals and an immunization 20/30 document says that to achieve those goals, everyone on the planet must be immunized – vaccinate everyone!
Dr. Shiva warns that people will be required to get the mandated vaccines to be allowed to travel, work, etc. He explains that drug companies are not making money from pharmaceutical drugs now because it is so costly to develop a drug and the FDA is approving fewer drugs now because of their toxicity. So, drug companies have moved to vaccines because they are pure profit with no risk. Drug companies cannot be sued for vaccine injuries and the maximum damages for death from a vaccine is $250,000.
Dr. Shiva points out that none of the 30 vaccines recommended by the CDC for young kids has been saline-placebo control tested. The test for the HPV Gardasil vaccine was a fraudulent test.
Dr. Shiva says COVID-19 is a farce brought to you by Dr. Anthony Fauci. Dr. Shiva said he believes Fauci should be indicted. Fauci built his career on the false narrative that HIV causes AIDS. Peter Duesberg, a truly great scientist, the youngest scientist to get tenure at Berkley, showed that AIDS in America and Europe us not caused by the HIV virus, but by drug use. However, when Fauci promoted bogus science and created the fear that HIV causes AIDS, billions of dollars were spent on that idea. A lot of people who used the AZT drug prescribed to treat AIDS died from the drug itself.
However, Deusberg showed that the lifestyles of AIDS patients who were taking so many drugs was destroying their immune systems. So, Fauci doesn’t want to talk about the immune system. Everything is about the bogeyman of viruses that can be treated with vaccines. He is the face of Big Pharma and vaccines. He sees the COVID-19 panic as his opportunity to become a national hero.
COVID-19 was designed to scare people into accepting the vaccine agenda “for the common good”. Most MDs do not know what the immune system is because they don’t study nutrition. However, for people who understand the immune system, the COVID-19 fear-mongering is laughable. We get a weakened immune system by eating a diet that no longer has any vitamins and nutrients. We don’t get enough Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Vitamin A. The focus should be encouraging Americans to eat more nutritious foods to build up their immune systems – not to submit to untested vaccines.
Growing Calls To Fire Dr. Fauci
On March 26, Dr. Fauci published an article in the New England Journal of Medicine called Covid-19 – Navigating the Uncharted in which he admitted that, “the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a fatality rate of approximately 0.1%.” Yet, in Fauci Says Schools May Open In Fall, Dr. Fauci says that whether the schools reopen in the fall depends on the “flattening of cases”. That means schools may NOT open even in the fall! He warns that a “second wave” will require another lockdown!
On April 16, the John Birch Society sent an urgent update supporting Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai in calling for Fauci to be fired. The JBS says: “Fire Fauci! Dr. Anthony Fauci should be fired. The entire premise of his so-called “solutions” is predicated on the notion of granting the government broad powers and unconstitutional controls over the lives of Americans.”
The John Birch Society reports that in an open letter to President Trump, Dr. Shiva is calling for Fauci to be fired from both the White House Coronavirus Task Force and as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Former U.S. Congressman Dr. Ron Paul also called for Fauci to be fired in the April 9, 2020 Ron Paul Liberty Report.
As figures such as Dr. Anthony Fauci recommend months of lockdowns that threaten to exterminate much of our economy, yet another expert has weighed in essentially saying that this course offers all risk and no reward. In fact, epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski stated that lifting the lockdowns would cause the Wuhan virus to be “exterminated” in weeks.
Wittkowski maintained “that the coronavirus could be ‘exterminated’ if we permitted most people to lead normal lives and sheltered the most vulnerable parts of society until the danger had passed,” reports the College Fix.
“With all respiratory diseases, the only thing that stops the disease is herd immunity,” Wittkowski told the PPP. “About 80% of the people need to have had contact with the virus, and the majority of them won’t even have recognized that they were infected, or they had very, very mild symptoms, especially if they are children.”
“So, it’s very important to keep the schools open and kids mingling to spread the virus to get herd immunity as fast as possible…It must be emphasized that our whole policy of “locking down” the nation — which threatens to collapse our economy and, ultimately perhaps, our civilization — was based on these flawed models.
Dr. Wittkowski said that a longer lockdown guarantees a “second wave”!
