Fully referenced facts about Covid-19, provided by experts in the field, to help our readers make a realistic risk assessment. (Regular updates below)

“The only means to fight the plague is honesty.” (Albert Camus, 1947)

Overview

  1. According to the latest immunological studies, the overall lethality of Covid-19 (IFR) is about 0.1% and thus in the range of a severe influenza (flu). For people at high risk or high exposure (including health care workers), early or prophylactic treatment is essential.
  2. In countries like the US, the UK, and also Sweden (without a lockdown), overall mortality since the beginning of the year is in the range of a strong influenza season; in countries like Germany, Austria and Switzerland, overall mortality is in the range of a mild influenza season.
  3. Even in global “hotspots”, the risk of death for the general population of school and working age is typically in the range of a daily car ride to work. The risk was initially overestimated because many people with only mild or no symptoms were not taken into account.
  4. Up to 80% of all test-positive persons remain symptom-free. Even among 70-79 year olds, about 60% remain symptom-free. About 95% of all people develop at most moderate symptoms.
  5. Up to 60% of all persons may already have a certain cellular background immunity to the new coronavirus due to contact with previous coronaviruses (i.e. common cold viruses). The initial assumption that there was no immunity against the new coronavirus was not correct.
  6. The median age of the deceased in most countries (including Italy) is over 80 years (e.g. 86 years in Sweden) and only about 4% of the deceased had no serious preconditions. The age and risk profile of deaths thus essentially corresponds to normal mortality.
  7. In many countries, up to two thirds of all extra deaths occurred in nursing homes, which do not benefit from a general lockdown. Moreover, in many cases it is not clear whether these people really died from Covid-19 or from weeks of extreme stress and isolation.
  8. Up to 30% of all additional deaths may have been caused not by Covid-19, but by the effects of the lockdown, panic and fear. For example, the treatment of heart attacks and strokes decreased by up to 60% because many patients no longer dared to go to hospital.
  9. Even in so-called “Covid-19 deaths” it is often not clear whether they died from or with coronavirus (i.e. from underlying diseases) or if they were counted as presumed cases and not tested at all. However, official figures usually do not reflect this distinction.
  10. Many media reports of young and healthy people dying from Covid-19 turned out to be false: many of these young people either did not die from Covid-19, they had already been seriously ill (e.g. from undiagnosed leukaemia), or they were in fact 109 instead of 9 years old. The claimed increase in Kawasaki disease in children also turned out to be false.
  11. Strong increases in regional mortality can occur if there is a collapse in the care of the elderly and sick as a result of infection or panic, or if there are additional risk factors such as severe air pollution. Questionable regulations for dealing with the deceased sometimes led to additional bottlenecks in funeral or cremation services.
  12. In countries such as Italy and Spain, and to some extent the UK and the US, hospital overloads due to strong flu waves are not unusual. Moreover, this year up to 15% of health care workers were put into quarantine, even if they developed no symptoms.
  13. The often shown exponential curves of “corona cases” are misleading, as the number of tests also increased exponentially. In most countries, the ratio of positive tests to tests overall (i.e. the positivity rate) remained constant at 5% to 25% or increased only slightly. In many countries, the peak of the spread was already reached well before the lockdown.
  14. Countries without lockdowns, such as Japan, South Korea, Belarus and Sweden, have not experienced a more negative course of events than many other countries. Sweden was even praised by the WHO and now benefits from higher immunity compared to lockdown countries. 75% of Swedish deaths happened in nursing facilities that weren’t protected fast enough.
  15. The fear of a shortage of ventilators was unjustified. According to lung specialists, the invasive ventilation (intubation) of Covid-19 patients, which is partly done out of fear of spreading the virus, is in fact often counterproductive and damaging to the lungs.
  16. Various studies have shown that the main routes of transmission of the virus are neither long-range aerosols (i.e. tiny particles floating in the air) nor smear infections (i.e. on surfaces), but direct contact and droplets produced when coughing or sneezing.
  17. The effectiveness of face masks in healthy and asymptomatic individuals remains questionable. Experts warn that such masks may interfere with normal breathing and may become germ carriers. Leading doctors called them a “media hype” and ridiculous.
  18. Many clinics in Europe and the US remained strongly underutilized or almost empty during the Covid-19 peak and in some cases had to send staff home. Millions of surgeries and therapies were cancelled, including many cancer screenings and organ transplants.
  19. Several media were caught trying to dramatize the situation in hospitals, sometimes even with manipulative images and videos. In general, the unprofessional reporting of many media maximized fear and panic in the population.
  20. The virus test kits used internationally are prone to errors and can produce false positive and false negative results. Moreover, the official virus test was not clinically validated due to time pressure and may sometimes react positive to other common coronaviruses.
  21. Numerous internationally renowned experts in the fields of virology, immunology and epidemiology consider the measures taken to be counterproductive and recommend rapid natural immunization of the general population and protection of risk groups.
  22. At no time was there a medical reason for the closure of schools, as the risk of disease and transmission in children is extremely low. There is also no medical reason for small classes, masks or ‘social distancing’ rules in schools.
  23. The claim that only (severe) Covid-19 but not influenza may cause venous thrombosis and pulmonary (lung) embolism is not true, as it has been known for 50 years that severe influenza greatly increases the risk of thrombosis and embolism, too.
  24. Several medical experts described express coronavirus vaccines as unnecessary or even dangerous. Indeed, the vaccine against the so-called swine flu of 2009, for example, led to cases of severe neurological damage and lawsuits in the millions. In the testing of new coronavirus vaccines, too, serious complications and failures have already been reported.
  25. A global respiratory disease pandemic can indeed extend over several seasons, but many studies of a “second wave” are based on very unrealistic assumptions, such as a constant risk of illness and death across all age groups.
  26. In places like New York City, nurses described an oftentimes fatal medical mis­manage­ment of Covid patients due to questionable financial incentives or inappropriate medical protocols. On the other hand, early treatment with zinc and HCQ turned out to be effective after all.
  27. The number of people suffering from unemployment, depressions and domestic violence as a result of the measures has reached historic record levels. Several experts predict that the measures will claim far more lives than the virus itself. According to the UN 1.6 billion people around the world are at immediate risk of losing their livelihood.
  28. NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden warned that the “corona crisis” will be used for the permanent expansion of global surveillance. Renowned virologist Pablo Goldschmidt spoke of a “global media terror” and “totalitarian measures”. Leading British virologist Professor John Oxford spoke of a “media epidemic”.
  29. More than 600 scientists have warned of an “unprecedented surveillance of society” through problematic apps for “contact tracing”. In some countries, such “contact tracing” is carried out directly by the secret service. In several parts of the world, the population is being monitored by drones and facing serious police overreach during lockdowns.
  30. A 2019 WHO study on public health measures against pandemic influenza found that from a medical perspective, “contact tracing” is not recommended in any circumstances. Nevertheless, contact tracing apps have already become partially mandatory in several countries.

  1. excellent article – will read it again later.
    also emailed it to some of my friends that are:

    1. not sure, but thinks it could be a hoax.
    2. a total hoax but needs a professional answer.
    3. wears a mask all the time
    4. hides under the table about anything.
    5. adamant we are all gonna die.
    6. thinks sticking needles in us is the answer to all our pains.

  2. So the Swiss are co-ordinating this SCAM are they? It doesn’t surprise me.

    If there was a “new” killer disease, it would be AS WELL AS all the usual ones, NOT instead of, but the total deaths from all causes are no different to any other year, proving THERE IS NO NEW DISEASE – – or are we supposed to believe all the usual diseases have decided to take a year off?

    The dead fragment called a “virus” is produced within the body as a RESPONSE to illness. It CANNOT “infect” a person, and is NOT the cause of disease.

    If I do not have symptoms I am not ill.

    This SCAM is the biggest LIE in history, and the perpetrators MUST be made to pay if Humanity is to have a future.

    We know (((a certain group))) wants to exterminate Humanity so they can have the entire world to themselves, but they must NOT be allowed to succeed.

  3. Jamie from Boston made a good point on one his on-the-road videos about a week ago. He said, “We really are through the looking-glass. Banks are now telling us if we want to go in we’ve got to wear a mask.” That kinda sums up this whole circus.

  4. Here’s a fact you missed, COVID-19 does NOT exist. It is all hype, the coronavirus pandemic is a phantom like Global Warming caused by CO2. The world is being stampeded by a black magic spell cast by the Jewstream media.

    Both COvid and CO2 are invisible, both were hyped by computer models of runaway deaths and runaway warming. Both models were wrong. Both hoaxes promoted by a natural phenomenon reclassified.

    With warming, a natural cycle of temperature swing – that is actually a sine wave in an overall cooling pattern of the late Holocene was hyped by the media a runaway warming – and this happened right at the crest of this cycle. There was never a time where CO2 molecules were controlling the temperature of earth, there is no known mechanism or scientific correlation of temperature swings to CO2, except that if the atmosphere cools over long cycles CO2 will come out the atmosphere and be sequestered in water.

    This very well known cycle of temperature change then CO2 change was reversed by Al Gore. Al Gore showed long term ice age charts and reversed the causality. Everyone knows this now but the myth of CO2 warming still lives on. Atmospheric carbon dioxide levels have always followed temperature.

    The global warming myth is just one example of how human minds can be branded by incorrect information, the televised media as the primary infection device. Another example is Christianity, which was forced into peoples minds by the Roman State and the Catholic Church which was formed out of the Caesar god cult when Rome collapsed. The mind virus was propagated by priests and a book. Those words in the Bible, when read, memorized, or listened to become spells that bind the mind. Even though the existence of Jesus has been completely disproven, the myth lives on, including very strongly amongst the fans of this website.

    The fakery around the CO2 causes warming myth became truly stunning. In order to get government grant money, every scientific paper had to relate their study to warming. The entire field of science was politicized to get funds. Even today, every BBC broadcast mentions global warming and the Holocaust, both disproven myths. Anything that happens in our world is said to be related or caused by human CO2 and warming no matter how ridiculous. Even David Attenborough said Walruses were jumping off cliffs because of global warming.

    Now if you can see how the fakery around global warming is spu, look for it around this faked coronavirus epidemic. There is no covid cause pandemic, just like global warming CO2 does not push temperature. Both are false, but because of media hype they are widely thought to be true.

    If you walk around our crazy society and talk to these media branded Zombies, people still think arctic ice is disappearing, they will tell you polar bears are starving and almost extinct, and they all believe sea levels are rising. Now they also believe we are in a pandemic, we must wear a mask to stop the spread of covids, that we have to flatten the curve by staying in our homes.

    Not one of these intense beliefs are real. This is EXACTLY like the religion of Europeans – they think SIN is a threat to the SOUL, when neither sin nor soul has been proved, and even if so, that some behavior could cause a separation from GOD. But GOD is not proven, SIN is not proven, AFTERLIFE is not proven, HEAVEN/HELL are not proven. But the belief is real and human behavior is modified by what is in our heads.

    Even if you proved GOD, could you show that SIN keeps you from HIM? NO! That is also a myth completely busted by Neale Donald Walsch in his Conversations with God book series. I highly suggest you read Caesar’s Messiah by Joseph Atwill if you think Jesus was a real historical person.

    But the myth lives on, and if you are honest enough to see how powerful belief is in religion, then you can also see that equally powerful beliefs can be instilled in humans very the media. The human being is susceptible to myths. Humans are flawed beings, they can be made to believe things that are not real.

    Likewise is COVID-19 real? This article posted above presumes that covid exists. Sorry! Prove it! What proof do any of you have that new virus called COVID-19 is real? Please tell me your evidence that this itty bitty tiny 100 nanometer diameter virus is real and proven. You all think it is. Well I don’t and neither does David Icke.

    https://davidicke.com/2020/07/27/how-they-pulled-off-the-pandemic-an-animated-film-explanation-by-david-icke/

    And please explain to me how a this tiny virus, which is only a segment of RNA, half of a DNA strand, is stopped by any mask that any person is now wearing, all masks, even the N-95 have hole sizes a 1,000 times bigger than a virus. Are any of you mask wearers sane? The people in the bioweapon labs who make viruses wear full pressurized plastic layered “astronaut” suits (and even those fail).

    The bottom line is this, no one should believe any part of any narrative promoted by the Jew media. All they do is lie, and if they lied about 9-11-2001 then why would you believe them now?

  5. @Yukon Jack For the most part, I agree with points in your rant, as good as a strong cup of coffee in the a.m. However, when you wax solipsistic about GOD, soul, and mind, I part company with you. Religion has indeed served to blackwash “that of GOD in every (hue-)man” (all peoples, all colors). A bit of Truth mixed with fear and ignorance does the trick EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

    I myself would not toss the baby out with the bath water, though. You may find yourself too far over the edge to recover some sense of the spiritual that is you. Nonetheless, I highly recommend the series of talks by Yogi Bhajan (“The Mind”), which may provide you an inkling of what you dismiss all too readily. My two cents’ worth.

  6. @Alan Donelson

    I actually try to tone it down when I come on this website and make comments. I know there are tons of Christians here and they don’t like what I have to say about their religion. In my comment above I am trying my damndest to get people to see that virtually everything we hold dear, our most sacred beliefs are actually forms of mind control.

    This by the way is addressed by the Flat Earthers, who challenge the globe theory. Flat earth is a psyop to discredit truthers, but the point is a fundamental belief system in a spherical earth is challenged.

    Likewise talking about the origins and fundamental tenets of Christianity is also a challenge. Religious beliefs are so ingrained that if I say sin is only a metaphysical concept used by unscrupulous priests to guilt trip the sheep, not some real thing to be worried about, can be very worrisome to the believer as it challenges the faith at the fundamental level of primary assumption. If there is no sin, then what does one need of Christ or salvation?

    So this article assumes COVID is real. I challenge that just like SIN. Really? Prove it. David Icke is taking this to task also. He is saying, even making a movie about coming out in 2 weeks, THERE IS NO COVID-19. It is a hoax. Can you say Holy Shit Batman? Can you see why they are shutting him down all over the place? He is fundamentally challenging the very basis of the myth being used to force people to wear masks and get vaccines, etc.

    But what if there is no afterlife? Would that change how you live your life? How big are the lies that we believe? HUGE! What if the JUST God idea is also wrong? What if you find out that all this torture in this life is NOT rewarded in the next life? Would you go kill the mother f-ckers working us over with their plandemics.

    I ask all of you is it immoral to kill Bill Gates for what he is doing? And I ask, if there is no God and no judgment for what we do in this life, then why aren’t we killing him and stopping this abuse?

    That is why Christianity and cops must be challenged. Christian beliefs STOP YOU from acting morally. COPS stop you from killing people that need to be killed. And that is what must be said on a website that is called TRUTH SEEKER.

    The only heaven we get is the one we make right now. The most dangerous man is one who changes the mindset and takes the revolution to the elite who need to be held responsible for what they do. I say drone Rothschild and I say nuke Israel.

  7. This scam is not the biggest lie in history.

    It is the second or third biggest.

  8. Also the swineflu pandemic 2009-2010 was a similar scam, it was a WHO-driven fake pandemic with blown up fears and exaggerated consequences.

    But it was fast over, and nobody cared back then

  9. Yukon Jack, in case you find it interesting – I do – read Christ in Egypt. by D.M. Murdock and you will understand much more and that Christianity was the religion of th eEgyptians and had NOTHING to do with the Jews – except that the Essenes who were Jews, usurped the teachings when they destroyed the great Library of Alexandria.
    And if there was a Jesus of Nazareth he was an Egyptian – all that land up top the Syrian border was EGYPT. And the teachings are a pathway to Enlightenment. That is all.
    The word KRST was a title for a person who went through the training to become enlightened.
    Then read The Bible Unearthed. by Israel Finkelstein who is the senior archaeologist at Tel AViv University. It is a great boo. He has to tread very carefully and tactfully – but he tells the truth. For instance, the Old Testament was only written up in about 200. BC and is almost entirely stories copied from the mythology of the surrounding cultures. There is very little truth in it – not even about Noah. Example, what the Jews like to call The Song of Solomon was a love song of a priestess of Sumer to her king and NOTHING to do with Solomon – who never lived in Palestine or Canaan either.
    It is all very interesting and just fascinating.

  10. Revealed Religions all grew out of the Axial Age (look it up), when it became desirable to remove people from the natural Animism that all practiced, but in a multitude of different ways, based upon tribe and ethnic ancestry. Now it was desirable to “homogenize” the then diverse and ethnic cultures via concocted IDEOLOGY masked as spirituality. This was begun along the Silk Road and would enable the creation of large trading networks and mercantile empires. Carolyn Emerick has discussed this, for those who are interested. The Abrahamic “Faith’s” are included, but the trend began early, including Zoroastrianism, alterations in the Vedas, Buddhism, and even the supposed “Greek” philosophers with their famous love of pederasty, which FYI is always a tell.

    The NWO religion will be something you can rightfully call CHRISLAM, though it’s official name will be different.

    Gods run in the Blood. All peoples and ethnicities must shuck off the “jive” and re-discover the animistic/shamanistic ways of their ancestor-venerating forbears. The “God” of Abraham is just a Semitic tribal deity cum volcano demon with an attitude. You are powerful when you connect to Truth, but when you worship your enemy, you are destroyed.

    “Worship” actually means recognizing and acknowledging worth and value, not groveling in the dirt before a volcano demon.

  11. Make that “groveling in the dirt, in a heroin coma, lauding a Semitic hob goblin as he squats on his supposed “Throne” of mercy cum genocide and ethnic replacement.”
    Thank you.

  12. Yukon Jack–exactly how has Christ’s existence been disproven? Are you not aware that Pilate himself mentions Jesus in his letters to the emperor Tiberius, calling him ‘the Christ’? Perhaps you believe Pontius Pilate, Tiberius, Herod, Caiphas, John the Baptist and the 4 evangelists never existed either……..? Did Alexander the Great exist hundreds of years before Christ?
    The Prophet Isaiah made various prophecies about the Messiah, Jesus Christ, hundreds of years before Christ’s birth, including (to name just a few) He would be born of a Virgin of the house of David, would suffer and die, be spat upon and beaten and buried in a rich man’s tomb (Joseph of Arimathea).
    The Catholic Church was established by Christ himself when he made Peter the first Pope. Even the most anti-gentile Jew doesn’t dispute that even though they reject Christ as God and their Messiah.
    If you believe in ‘evolution’ then tell us even one example of a species that ‘evolved’ into another, completely different species as evolutionists claim. Hint: there are none, not even one.
    Remember Christ’s threat: Whoever does not believe will be condemned. You owe it to yourself to do some serious research on this before you cross over into eternity.
    veritas
    PS: There are 3 and only 3, possibilities about any man who claims to be the Son of God: either he is mad, in which case he doesn’t know what he is doing; or he is an imposter trying to deceive; or he really is the Son of God. The Pharisees of his day never claimed or accused him of being mad or an imposter. The knew very well from his miracles witnessed by themselves and hundreds of thousands of others, including many ‘Messianic miracles’, that He was Divine but in their stubborn blindness, they refused to acknowledge Him.
    A messianic miracle is one that is so stupendous (for example raising Lazarus from the dead after he had been in the tomb for 4 days and had alread started to decompose) that it could only be performed by someone who is Divine or close to God.
