(Oh my! Almost Everything We’ve Been Told About The Pandemic Is Wrong.)
(And a few more people and groups are starting to wake up to that fact!)
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic probably began in November 2019 in Wuhan, China. From there it spread west to Milan and east to Seattle, or so the understanding is. After mutating in Italy, it jumped to New York City, hitting the Tri-State area (NY, NJ, CT) viciously starting in March 2020. Since then, it gradually spread to the entire world. Notably, there have been severe outbreaks in Italy, Australia (Melbourne especially), Madrid and all of Spain, London and England, and Equador and Peru, especially Lima and Quito.
Now in May 2021, the virus is out of control in Brazil and India, with constantly rising cases and deaths. Over 3.2 million people (out of 7.9 billion of us) have died from COVID. The pandemic is far from over, although lower caseloads and much lower fatality rates are now being seen in the Fifty States and elsewhere.
Why? There is a lot of disagreement. Is this due to herd immunity from infected survivors with antibodies? Or the “vaccines” – impact of experimental gene modification treatments from all those tech-pharma multinationals? Or is it natural attenuation of the virus? Or is it that more and more people are refusing to play the test and test and test game, even while rejecting suspicious vaccines?
Whatever the cause, it seems that the end is in sight, if not quite here. (Despite the best efforts of a wide array of people and groups, including many with significant power and influence. But to continue…)
What have we learned?
First: the so-called public health “authorities” around the planet were completely unprepared for a health emergency of this magnitude. (And their actions did much to make it an emergency: secrecy, exaggerated (even outright bogus) claims and predictions, ridiculous countermeasures, and more.)
We had severe shortages of personal protective gear, masks, oxygen, testing kits and trained staff, courtesy of health bureaucrats and politicians, and excess dependence by private individuals on government. We also had international gamesmanship. China’s gross negligence (clearly criminal for anything but a “sovereign government” and autocratic rulers) in covering up the outbreak, not allowing foreign experts to research the outbreak and possible cures on site, and blaming others for their negligence. Bravado and stupid lies on the part of political officials at all levels of American government.
Still, the list of government blunders (and “expert” blunders: medical, political, etc.) doesn’t stop there.
As discussed in this article, the Lockdown mandated by most countries, including almost all American States, was worthless medically.
Worse, the Lockdown was immensely destructive to the economy. Look, we knew way back in 2006 that lockdowns don’t work to contain a virus: scientific, quantified evidence. And the anti-lockdown view was widely shared long before that. Evidence from the Fifty States (and the great variation in lockdown policies) and dozens of other countries around the world show NO correlation between these lockdown policies and spread of this (or any) virus. No matter what kind of lockdowns, the results (caseloads and fatalities) were the same. Lockdowns had NO quantifiable impact on the disease’s course. But, lockdowns DID have a significant and measurable impact on much else: it destroyed businesses and wiped out jobs. It increased suicides, drug abuse, alcohol abuse AND domestic abuse of women and children. Much of what was destroyed may never recover – they seem to be gone totally. Large downtown and suburban areas remain much quieter than pre-Pandemic Panic levels because activity is down.
Despite past experience and conflicting advice, the CDC, White House, state governors and public health and other officials adopted these tyrannical lockdown policies without considering the costs. The results as far as disease were once again exactly what had happened in the past on smaller scales. And indeed, premature deaths from other health problems have climbed and will continue to climb for a long time to come: cancer, heart and other conditions, all were virtually ignored (out of an irrational fear) for months.
And this time, both in the Fifty States and worldwide, the economic damage was catastrophic: in the trillions of dollars of lost wealth and output. The economic damage will not be undone in weeks or months: it will require generations. Growth will return but it will be weak worldwide – even in areas like South Dakota and Wyoming, little impacted by the insane response to the Pandemic. And compounded by the madness of government under the new one-party rule in DC. People fear, with good reason, that much of the lost wealth is permanent. Investors should go into the post-pandemic world with clear vision. The government was wrong in the policy response and they’re wrong again in their rosy scenario forecasts.
BUT now we have the truth coming out more and more. Even the mainstream media and politicians are starting to accept the truth that has been stated time and time again.
But don’t EVER think that telling the truth is going to be easy. And that people will readily accept the truth. That has NEVER been the case. And won’t be now.
Share this with an unbeliever in the truth.
