Revisiting COVID Alarmists

A month ago, Georgian John Varner went into hiding after the state reopened.

John was wrong, Georgia never had his predicted surge.

COVID alarmism is based on misinformation, not science.

    Blind faith based on misinformation.

    John Varner : “Be smart”

    That sounds a little like famous last words.

    It might be it a wee bit more correct to say it is based on disinformation.

    Comparison of 1951 flu deaths to CV19 – the excess in 1951 suggests that they were undercounting significantly? Also the 1951 graphs are only for 126 major towns, not the whole country, and the population of E&W in 1951 was about 43M as opposed to about 60M today.

    Some interesting similarities in the (older) targeted population and description of the flu.

    And it did not spread/behave the same everywhere, less severe in most of USA except New England.

    The initial exponential growth abated without a lockdown and the destruction of the economy!

    Why is the virus going to be around for years? Don’t these things either disappear or mutate once herd immunity is acquired?

    The “surge” was an attempt to keep the Scam alive, just as the predict the virus will be back in the Fall. As the Tests, test for a general covi genetic sequence or a common surface protein, they test for an environmental factor which comes and goes in people all year round. Of course, with tests that are 80% false positive, the “virus” will be back in the fall.

    They turned a flashlight on and saw a tree, and panicked about the tree. Now they are saying that, if they turn the flashlight on again, they will see a tree. Wow. So simple.

    You look at the chart and it’s easy to conclude the large gathering ban bent the curve to flatten it. For deaths you have to factor about a 2 to 3 week delay before seeing the results.

      Coronaviruses drop off sharply every year starting in April, due an increase in UV light. Making baseless correlations is not at all helpful.

      • Eric Hatfield says:

        I’m not making a baseless correlation. I was pointing out that the large scale gathering ban and social distancing people were doing in late March would explain the flattening the curve far better than the shelter in place order. Maybe I should have been more clear on that comparison.

        While it is generally true viruses and flus ease during spring for the reason you cite, it is also scientifically dangerous to assume this one will fade to insignificance because others do. Benny Hill had an interesting saying about what happens when you assume.

        WRT to this disease let’s look at Brazil and Russia. Brazil has a very warm climate overall with little seasonality and plenty of sun. Theoretically they should have little issue with this any time of year. Russia is warming into spring nicely. Yet their cases and death rates per million population have increased since the equinox.

        Looking at the same site Canada’s death rate (deaths per million and not shown) peaked in early May which is pretty late for a flu.

        We may be very fortunate this disease hit us in force in March rather than December.
