Where’s the Evidence Supporting the Drastic Measures Against COVID-19?

  • Death rates in China, Italy, South Korea from COVID are in the range of only 0.002% to 0.025% of the population.
  • Data being gathered about numbers of cases and deaths are severely lacking in quantity and quality. In addition the numbers that are available appear to be inflated by influential groups and websites, and then echoed by media.
  • The draconian measures being put in place for reducing COVID spread such as stringent ‘social distancing’ requirements combined with fines up to $100,000 for people who violate them, and also lock-downs in place for billions of people, are not evidence-based.
  • The societal and economic costs of these measures vastly outweigh their benefits to the population.



A lengthy but informative read that raises numerous issues and questions that authorities are completely ignoring.  Please read it in its entirety, but here’s some bullet-points as well as some additions of my own:

  • There’s a ton of inaccurate information coming from authorities, politicians, & scientists
  • There is weak evidence to support social distancing. Important quote:

“We actually do not have that much good evidence for these social-distancing methods,” said Dr. Kettner. “It was just a couple of reviews in the CDC [U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s] Emerging Infectious Diseases journal, which showed that although some of them might work, we don’t really know to what degree, and the evidence is pretty weak.” (Kettner is associate professor of Community Health Sciences & Surgery at University of Manitoba, former Chief Provincial Public Health Officer, and former Medical Director of the International Centre for Infectious Diseases.)

Thirteen studies show social distancing increases deaths:

  • There’s a lack of solid data on how contagious it is, how many cases there are and how many deaths are directly caused by COVID-19. Important quote:

“We’re getting very crude numbers of cases and deaths, very little information about testing rates, contagious analysis, severity rates, who’s being hospitalised, who is in intensive care, who is dying, what are the definitions to decide if someone died of the coronavirus or just died with the coronavirus. There is so much important data that is very hard to get, to guide the decisions about how serious a threat is this.” Dr. Kettner (30 year career in public medicine)

  • Death rates in China, Italy, and South Korea (and other countries) are in the range of only 0.002% to 0.025% of the population. Recently, a U.S. study in which CDC Dr. Fauci, one of the authors, states: 

“This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively.” Dr. Fauci

  • The mass isolation of billions of people is unwarranted. Only the most at-risk people and close associates should be in isolation.
  • While many businesses are severely affected large enterprises like Amazon, Costco, and Walmart are thriving due to panic buying behavior.
  • Event 201, sponsored by Bill and Melinda Gates, World Economic Forum and the Center for Health Security at Johns Hopkins involved a “global pandemic exercise.” The simulation involved a factitious new coronavirus ranging from mild flue to pneumonia, with the sickest people needing intensive care.
  • Event 201 participants addressed how to deal with “misinformation” circulating on the internet. Important quote:

Harrington also said “there needs to be a centralized response around the communications approach, that then is cascaded to informed advocates representing the NGO communities, the medical professionals, etcetera. … Centralized on an international basis. Because I think there needs to be a central repository of data, facts and key messages.” Matthew Harrington, Edelman’s Global President and Chief Operating Officer

  • Vaccines were discussed at Event 201, and Hasti Taghi chief of staff capacity at NBC Universal, noted that the anti-vaccine movement was very strong due to social media and therefore, they need to disseminate “the right information….to ensure the public has trust in the vaccines that we’re creating” against COVID-19.  Harrington agreed stating this recent strong resistance was a “beta” test for dealing with resistance to COVID-19 vaccines.
  • Also in attendance at Event 201 was Avril Haines, past assistant to the president and Principal Deputy National Security Adviser for the Obama administration, Deputy Director of CIA, Legal Advisor to National Security Council, who suggested daily briefings would work better than trying to control information to “flood the zone” from “trusted sources”at every level by community and faith based leaders and health care officials.  Harrington agreed and added the need to educate trusted local leaders in advance of a pandemic to ensure readiness.
  • Four months after Event 201 COVID-19 information started flowing simultaneously from the media showing COVID-19 to be the most serious threat to humanity.
  • Gates announces on March 13 he’s leaving Microsoft “to dedicate more time to philanthropic priorities including global health and development, education, and my increasing engagement in tackling climate change.”
  • Our World in Data, supported by the Gates Foundation that has an endowment of $52 billion has given more than $2.4 billion to the WHO since 2000. A Geneva-based NGO representative says Gates is “treated like a head of state, not only at WHO but also at G20,” and that Gates is one of the most influential people in public health. Gates’ focus in WHO is vaccines and medicines, which is ironic considering he doesn’t vaccinate his own children.  The organization has a website that focuses on the doubling time of COVID-19 cases but doesn’t examine the rise, spread, and subsequent fall of the virus across countries.  Our World has a video that (falsely) states that COVID-19 cases is far higher than the flu and that it’s “much more dangerous,” much more contagious, and spreads faster. The narrator states “Horrible decisions will have to be made about who gets to live and who doesn’t.” 

A very crucial quote from the video states:

“Quarantines are not great to experience and certainly not popular. But they buy us — and especially the researchers working on medication and vaccinationcrucial time,” the narrator assures viewers. “So if you are under quarantine, you should understand why and respect it.”

  • The author of the article points out glaring gaps in logic and the lack of evidence to back up all the trumped up assertions that testing, quarantine, and social distancing followed by a vaccine is the best approach.
  • The Gates Foundation is involved in the mass production of COVID-19 home testing kits and was a main sponsor of Event 201. The Gates Foundation donated $125 Million to Develop COVID-19 Vaccine.  He is also supporting work done at MIT, and Rice University working on ‘digital certificates’ – human-implantable ‘QUANTUM-DOT TATTOOS’ to identify those who have not been vaccinated.
  • The author also points out a very important fact: the media completely downplays that the vast majority of coronavirus cases are benign.  Most people get sick briefly if at all. 
  • The author astutely points out that being exposed to viruses, bacteria, and other antigens strengthens the immune system and confers long-term immunity.  Even CDC’s Dr. Fauci states he would be “willing to bet anything that people who recover are really protected against reinfection.”  The author points out that all the fear panic purchasing of cleaning supplies is like “putting oil on a fire” and that those not exposed to COVID will be vulnerable to it in the future.  Even Mike Ryan, Executive Director of the WHO’s Emergency Services Program states,

“What we really need to focus on is finding those who are sick, those who have the virus, and isolate them — find their contacts and isolate them,” Ryan is quoted as saying in the interview. “The danger right now with the lock-downs … [is that] if we don’t put in place the strong public-health measures now, when those movement restrictions and lock-downs are lifted, the danger is the disease will jump back up.”

For an interesting video by the David Knight Show on Dr. Fauci:  Fauci: Vaxxed & Tracked or House Arrest Forever.  Please remember Coronaviruses are ever present in society and are a part of the seasonal flu recorded each and every year. They aren’t going away no matter what we do. Also, Fauci has a long history of pushing vaccines. This article shows how he thought hydroxycloroquine was fine for MERS in 2013 but not for COVID-19 on 2020:

But perhaps this is what officials have had in mind the entire time. Prevent people from obtaining immunity, and make them scared to death of a virus so that they will eagerly accept a fast-tracked vaccine that even vaccine proponents are worried about:

Evidence is pointing more and more to a predesigned Plannedemic.
Hopefully it is becoming clearer that some people feel they have the “right” facts that need to be centrally reported and that their facts are above scrutiny despite the fact most of these people are not even educated in medicine or the human body and that in many instances they are just plain wrong as well as have severe conflicts of interest.

Lastly, citizen reporters from numerous states have uncovered that the media is lying about prevalence and seriousness of COVID-19
