Navigating Through The “Coronavirus-Panic”: 8 Inconvenient Facts To Consider

Navigating Through The “Coronavirus-Panic”: 8 Inconvenient Facts To Consider

Nick Pineault – The EMF Guy April 1, 2020

Fact #8: Things Are Getting Better, And Better, And Better

On March 26th, the WHO’s Directed-General repeated that, “We are at war with a virus that threatens to tear us apart”, reminding everyone that “millions could die.”

These statements simply do not match the scientific data we have, which on the contrary is starting to support the idea that COVID-19 won’t likely be worse than a strong flu season. And considering that overall mortality from respiratory infections has still not increased significantly in virtually all countries faced with this “deadly virus”, the whole thing is starting to look like a big bubble of panic, politics and social media hysteria — a bubble filled with emptiness the menace of embarrassment.

The World Health Organization has reminded everyone that “facts, not fear will stop the spread of novel coronavirus” — and this entire article was my attempt to do just that.

New indications that the most dire movie-inspired scenarios based on the early, irresponsibly-shared, out of context case fatality rates shared by the WHO in early March will likely never become a reality are coming out every single day. But the media, citizens and politicians alike are repulsed and even angered by this inconvenient truth — since “it cannot possibly be true.”

And yet, the data (or lack thereof) is starting to speak extremely loud:

  • As shared throughout this article, the real case fatality rates from COVID-19 will likely end up being very close to the seasonal flu once this whole thing is over

  • It’s extremely unclear if what we claim are COVID-19 related deaths are in fact deaths from a slew of other factors, and if these deaths would have otherwise been “lost” in the midst of the 650,000 seasonal flu deaths or the millions of deaths from respiratory illnesses we see every single year

  • The more we test, the more cases we find — a correlation which supports the idea that this pandemic is a pandemic of testing, and not the exponential spread of the virus

  • More and more extremely credible experts are speaking out, even if they face the risk of losing their jobs

Dr. Ioannidis from Stanford went all out on March 26th, giving an in-depth interview where he admitted, yet again, that the data we are relying on to take decisions that will affect the entire society for decades to come is dramatically insufficient:

We need to act [based on] reliable data. Unfortunately much of the information that we have collected so far […] is not reliable. We have increasing evidence that many of the key features that pertain to what this pandemic is about, how lethal is that virus, how many people it has infected or will infect, what is likely to be the eventual impact and how effective are the different measures that we are applying… we have major gaps in practically all of those fronts. [emphasis mine]

I’ll end this section with a list of the latest “good news”, which I’ll try to keep updated as much as I can in the next weeks:

March 11th:

March 13th:

March 19th:

  • “As of 19 March 2020, COVID-19 is no longer considered to be a high consequence infectious disease (HCID) in the UK. Now that more is known about COVID-19, the public health bodies in the UK have reviewed the most up to date information about COVID-19 against the UK HCID criteria. They have determined that several features have now changed; in particular, more information is available about mortality rates (low overall), and there is now greater clinical awareness and a specific and sensitive laboratory test, the availability of which continues to increase. The Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP) is also of the opinion that COVID-19 should no longer be classified as an HCID.”

  • Wuhan reported no new coronavirus cases today for the first time

March 20th:

March 25th:

March 26th:

March 27th:

March 28th:

  • 2013 Chemistry Nobel Prize winner Dr. Michael Levitt argues that the COVID-19 pandemic will end soon.

  • “The latest data from Norway, evaluated by a PhD in environmental toxicology, again show that the rate of test-positives does not increase – as would be expected in the case of an epidemic [emphasis mine] – but fluctuates in the normal range for coronaviruses between 2 and 10%. The average age of the test-positive deceased is 84 years, the causes of death are not publicly reported, and there is no excess mortality.” (Via SPG)

March 29th:

  • Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi — one of the most cited research scientists in German history — published a video where he reiterates that “Implementation of the current draconian measures that so extremely restrict fundamental rights can only be justified if there is reason to fear that a truly, exceptionally dangerous virus is threatening us. Do any scientifically sound data exist to support his contention for COVID-19? […] The answer is simply: NO!” [emphasis mine]

  • Dr. John Lee, retired professor of pathology and a former consultant pathologist for UK’s National Health Service, reiterates in an article that “Covid-19 deaths are a substantial over-estimate”, and that “the measured increase in numbers of deaths is not necessarily a cause for alarm, unless it demonstrates excess deaths [emphasis mine] – 340 deaths out of 46,000 shows we are not near this at present.”

  • “The director of the University Medical Center Hamburg, Dr. Ansgar Lohse, demands a quick end to curfews and contact bans. He argues that more people should be infected with corona. Kitas and schools should be reopened as soon as possible so that children and their parents can become immune through infection with the corona virus. The continuation of the strict measures would lead to an economic crisis, which would also cost lives, [emphasis mine] said the physician.’ (Via SPG)

March 30th:

March 31st:

  • I became aware of a March 19th editorial paper published by Stanford Professor John Ioannidis, titled “Coronavirus disease 2019: the harms of exaggerated information and non‐evidence‐based measures“. It’s a mandatory read to say the least, since Ioannidis explains in detail how the current corona-panic has led to a vast overestimation of how fast the virus spread, how deadly or dangerous it really is, and what evidence-based measures should really be taken to contain it.

  • The COVID-19 situation is calming down in Italy, where the government is now starting to consider many options to end the nation-wide shutdown.

  • Overall death rates are barely up in the UK for the past week, as reported by the Office for National Statistics. Once again, where are the extra deaths? Apart from a few isolated cases in France, Italy and possibly New York City, the COVID-19 global pandemic which was previously prophesied to kill millions and millions of people has still not been able to increase worldwide overall mortality rates.

April 1st:

  • No, this is no April’s fool. Swiss Propaganda Research demonstrates that the list of Italian doctors who are claimed to have died from COVID-19 was quietly edited lately, and that their birth dates were removed. A lot of doctors on that list were 90+ years old when they died, and a lot of them did not even participate in the fight against COVID-19. (updated list here, original list with birth dates here. Thank God for Internet Archive…)

  • A genetic analysis confirms that the severe cases of pneumonia reported in Italy before the COVID-19 pandemic (back in November and December of 2019) are officially due to other viruses. This supports the idea that severe pneumonia was already around in Italy before the COVID-19 pandemic and might have played an important role in the total death toll currently attributed to COVID-19.

  • Social unrest is rising in Italy, and the side effects of the massive lockdowns that have been imposed are starting to be felt

Bottom Line: At the same time that emerging data is starting supports the idea that COVID-19 is unlikely to be more dangerous than a strong seasonal flu, most world leaders are running as fast as they can in the opposite direction. The best we can do is to wait until the data gets so overwhelming that the truth becomes self-evident: We can now stop panicking!
