11,000 epidemiologists, scientists back White House adviser
A recent study published in the British Medical Journal found the sweeping lockdowns lead to more COVID-19 deaths and a prolonging of the pandemic than if the government were to let herd immunity build up in young populations, the National Post of Canada reported.
The researchers did a a reanalysis of data modeling used by the U.K. government as guidance for implementing blanket lockdowns.
They concluded that that while strict public health measures bring cases down, the number of deaths rise in the long run.
The authors described the lockdown model as a postponement of the pandemic.
Not a death sentence
In a Fox News interview earlier this month, Kulldorf said most of his “colleagues in infectious disease are in favor of risk-based strategy or an age-based strategy where we protect the elderly or other high risk groups while the younger resume life more or less normally.”
Gupta and Bhattacharya, who joined Kulldorf in the interview with Laura Ingraham, emphasized that herd immunity should be the objective, contending it could be achieved in a relatively short amount of time.
COVID is not a “death sentence,” Bhattacharya argued, alluding to survival rates calculated by the Centers for Disease Control of nearly 100% for those under 70 and nearly 95% for those who are older.
“I think we’ve created this idea in the public mind that it is something so unique and so deadly that we should utterly end all normal existence as a result of it,” he said.
“That’s not right. We can have a much better way. Protect the vulnerable. Shield them for a short period of time until we reach a level where there is population immunity,” the Stanford professor said. “And for the rest of the world, let us live our lives.”
The CDC last month issued new estimates that showed people under 50 years infected by COVID-19 have nearly a 100% survival rate. It broke down to a 99.997% survival rate for 0-19; 99.98% for ages 20-49; 99.5% for 50-69; and 94.6% for those over 70.
Those who died of coronavirus, according to the CDC, had an average of 2.6 comorbidities, meaning more than two chronic diseases along with COVID-19. Overall, the CDC says, just 6% of the people counted as COVID-19 deaths died of COVID-19 alone.
The World Health Organization said in early October it estimated 10% of the world’s population has been infected, meaning that by the U.N. body’s own account, the infection fatality rate for COVID-19 is only 0.13%. That’s a little more than one-tenth of 1%, which the WHO says is the rate for the seasonal flu.
The WHO’s estimate in March of a death rate of 3.4% sparked panic worldwide, fueling the catastrophic lockdowns.
‘TRUTH’ With RFK, Jr. and David Martin: Fauci’s Checkered Past, Moderna’s Warp Speed Vaccine
In the latest episode of our second season of “TRUTH” with RFK, Jr., Kennedy interviewed author and patent researcher David Martin.
In the latest episode of our second season of “TRUTH” with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Kennedy interviewed author and patent researcher David Martin. The conversation centered on Dr. Anthony Fauci’s favorite COVID vaccine candidate, Moderna.
Highlights of the discussion include:
- Dr. David Martin’s company “M-CAM” and how he found a way to use intangible assets as collateral security.
- The Bayh-Dole Act that led to Dr. Anthony Fauci profiting from royalties off university patents.
- A SARS vaccine that was patented in March, 2019 — eight months prior to the COVID breakout.
- Fauci’s involvement in dodgy deals and price fixing of medicines in the U.S.
- Autism and other chronic health conditions exploded under Fauci’s watch.
- Fauci’s failure to study infectious diseases and allergies despite working for the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
