If COVID-19 is so lethal, why does the CDC and serology tests show it to be no different than the seasonal flu?
That is the question everyone should be asking. The premise of high lethality is the justification for the government imposing deadly mandates on society.
All pronouncements about C19 mortality must be viewed with suspicion. That's because the CDC permits almost any death to be put in the UO7.1 COVID-19 column. https://cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvss/coronavirus/Alert-2-New-ICD-code-introduced-for-COVID-19-deaths.pdf Hospitals and doctors are incentivized by being reimbursed by the government for doing so.
All those who have hyped the virus have a vested interest in continuing the scare. So that's another reason to ferret out facts and take pronouncements with a grain of salt.
FACTS AND DATA MATTER
1. The CDC, 5-1-20, states, based on the data they have collected:
•"For people 65 years and older, current COVID-19 hospitalization rates are similar to those observed during comparable time points during recent high severity influenza seasons." (Since the flu targets the young primarily, that means it must be far worse than COVID-19 in terms of hospitalization rates.)
•"For children (0-17 years), COVID-19 hospitalization rates are much lower than influenza hospitalization rates during recent influenza seasons." (That means the flu must be far worse than COVID-19 in terms of hospitalization rates.) https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/covid-data/covidview/index.html
2. In the following chart based upon CDC data, the 2019-2020 season shows no remarkable increase in all-cause mortality. If you compare that total with that of the 2017-2018 pre-C19 season, there are only about 4,000 more deaths. But note that the increase in the 2019-2020 season occurred before C19 struck.
3. Serology testing shows how many have been exposed to the virus. Only by knowing how many have been exposed compared to those who have died from it can we know a mortality %. Where serology testing has been done, the mortality % is way lower (even given the inflated C19 deaths) than what would be cause for the Draconian measures taken by government and the widespread feat.
For example, Dr. Todaro's work shows a worldwide mortality rate of 0.34% (5-13-20), which is still higher than reality because flu deaths and other causes have been shifted to C19. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Ref79NvbaIk-J19k1Se32Ci5SJGgJjrkG_txHsXJNv8/htmlview
For corroboration, internet search COVID-19 serology study for Stanford, LA, Illinois, New York, Sweden, or anywhere else where such testing has been done.
The inevitable conclusion is that this is a disease that does not justify the media and government reaction to it. There are agendas at play that have nothing to do with saving lives.
If the above facts don't make that evident, consider how that "essential" workers are permitted to work while "nonessential" are not. If the virus is highly lethal, that would mean "essential" workers are being sacrificed. Yet there is no evidence of high mortality among them. And no, it's not because some of them wear a facemask. Facemasks are not just ineffective, they're dangerous. https://www.asifthinkingmatters.com/blog/the-dangers-of-face-masks-for-covid-19
Insanity and tyranny abound in the time of the virus.
