WHO (Accidentally) Confirms Covid is No Worse Than Flu

Kit Knightly – Off-Guardian Oct 8, 2020

The World Health Organization has finally confirmed what we (and many experts and studies) have been saying for months – the coronavirus is no more deadly or dangerous than seasonal flu.

The WHO’s top brass made this announcement during a special session of the WHO’s 34-member executive board on Monday October 5th, it’s just nobody seemed to really understand it.

In fact, they didn’t seem to completely understand it themselves.

At the session, Dr Michael Ryan, the WHO’s Head of Emergencies revealed that they believe roughly 10% of the world has been infected with Sars-Cov-2. This is their “best estimate”, and a huge increase over the number of officially recognised cases (around 35 million).

Dr. Margaret Harris, a WHO spokeswoman, later confirmed the figure, stating it was based on the average results of all the broad seroprevalence studies done around the world.

As much as the WHO were attempting to spin this as a bad thing – Dr Ryan even said it means “the vast majority of the world remains at risk.” – it’s actually good news. And confirms, once more, that the virus is nothing like as deadly as everyone predicted.

The global population is roughly 7.8 billion people, if 10% have been infected that is 780 million cases. The global death toll currently attributed to Sars-Cov-2 infections is 1,061,539.

That’s an infection fatality rate of roughly or 0.14%. Right in line with seasonal flu and the predictions of many experts from all around the world.

0.14% is over 24 times LOWER than the WHO’s “provisional figure” of 3.4% back in March. This figure was used in the models which were used to justify lockdowns and other draconian policies.

In fact, given the over-reporting of alleged Covid deaths, the IFR is likely even lower than 0.14%, and could show Covid to be much less dangerous than flu.

None of the mainstream press picked up on this. Though many outlets reported Dr Ryan’s words, they all attempted to make it a scary headline and spread more panic.

Apparently neither they, nor the WHO, were capable of doing the simple maths that shows us this is good news. And that the Covid sceptics have been right all along.

UPDATE 9/10/20: In the interest of thoroughness, a desire to rely on primary sources, and not depending purely on mainstream sources (which may remove or amend articles), I decided to find the actual video of Dr Ryan’s remarks.

For some reason, although this was an important WHO meeting during an allegedly hyper-serious pandemic, the video is hard to find. The only place you are able to see it is the WHO’s own website, and even then you have to scrub through almost 6 hours of footage. Well, I did that, and you are welcome.

You can’t embed the WHO’s stream, but I can tell you to go to this page, click “Session 1” and skip to 1:01:33 to hear the exact quote:

Our current best estimates tell us that about ten percent of the global population may have been infected by this virus. This varies depending on country, it varies from urban to rural, it varies between different groups.”

I will work on getting an audio clip, for ease of sharing and to make sure it does not get memory holed.

  1. It doesnt matter what they “say”, whether they hype covid or belittle it

    Because it all depends on what the meaning of the word “is” is

  2. I just want to put this out there and for the sake easy, I am assuming in this comment that the official line is telling the truth.

    I distantly know of a child who has had a Covid test. The result is ‘inconclusive’.

    This is what the NHS says about incoclusive test results.

    “Unclear, void, borderline or inconclusive test result

    An unclear, void, borderline or inconclusive result means it’s not possible to say if you had coronavirus when the test was done.”

    There are four possiblities: UNCLEAR, VOID, BORDERLINE & INCONCLUSIVE.

    I’d be very interested if anyone can explain each possible result, beyond the word meaning. I ask this because I’ve not seen any data on these four poosible test failures. The parent was a fool for getting involved, but that is besides the point. What if the childs next test says ‘unclear’ & the 3rd test says ‘void’ & the 4th test says ‘borderline’ at which point the child & parents have been isolating for nearly 6 weeks? Borderline after 6 weeks?

  3. That’s the problem with lying. Tell the truth and when people analyse it everything fits, but tell lies different to earlier lies and soon the contradictions show themselves like bruises.

  4. Abuse of power by a compromised mainstream media can easily be identified; Entertainment tv news taking the top award for misrepresentation of facts on a whole range of issues in order to bring about a change in public perception that would help to promote and sustain a very questionable political agenda, in tandem with bought and paid for crooked politicians whose silence on this fake pandemic speaks far louder than words.

  5. No such thing as virus. All bullshit science that we have been fed for a long time. One do not catch a cold, it develop when the body is weak. We go to school to learn lies. What happened to critical thinking?. What is a virus, what the shape of the world. Have we sent men to the moon. What is across the ice wall in antarctica? Shall I ask more questions. One live and die with lies in the mind. Being fed lies by governments continually. Meditate, travel outside of your body and you will see the lies. Governments do not control my consciousness, I do. Wake up and take back your birthright, STRAWMAN AND STRAWWOMEN.

    Mystic and Yogi.

  6. There is no Covid-19 Virus.

    It’s all a HOAX, no matter how loud The Cult of The Branch Covidians shout it from their brainwashed and deluded rooftops.

  7. WHO (Accidentally) does not confirm Covid is No Worse Than Flu.

    You noticed it from the numbers, thats a diffirent story than them confirming anything.

    And if they did corfirm, would you need their word for it? Even Fauci says “Covid is No Worse Than Flu” except when he says the contrary

    Dont we have other more reliable sources than WHO to get information from?

  8. It is easier to scam someone, than to convince someone they have been scammed.
    John Lennon once said “Every country gets the Number 1 it deserves”.
    We got what we wished for.
    We’re stuck in a paradigm that makes us suffer. We, collectively, obviously want to suffer.
    So be it.
    It seems to be some sort of an atonement. For what, I don’t know. I have no other explanation for this insanity.

  9. The WHO are now “back paddling”. They must know by now, about the impending international class-action lawsuit against “Crimes Against Humanity”, which could end up, if convicted, some of these “experts’ serving rightfully jail time.

  10. The snakes all need to be rounded up and imprisoned for the lying toe rags they are.
    Treason against the people is being committed on a daily bases now. They are ramping up the fear and it is working. I keep hearing people crying lockdown now the whole country or the virus will kill us all. Arrest those who do not wear their mask. Bring in the army. Well I say to them what about the poor sods who need chemo and cannot get it or those who need ops and cannot get them. What about those whose businesses are being torn to shreds and, thrown on the scrap heap and, the education system that is also going down the tubes. Do these people who are screaming for lockdown realise what they are wishing for. This so called pandemic does not and never has existed. Every minuet of the day and night on the radio or tv its a continues barrage of covid, its as if their is no other news in the world. We have to do something or we are lost forever.

  11. If out of 1000, you get 10 positive in the pcr-test, 9 of these are not infected, that is false positives.
    So there is nothing to worry about.
    The only sure thing are death-tolls, and clear symptoms, of which later can be another kind of flu.
    Like it was before 2020.

  12. When the PCR test resulted in huge numbers of false positives the government claims it was a rise in the “R” number. But because there was no resultant uptake in hospital admissions and deaths, on 8th October ,Public Health England decided to add corvid-19 to seasonal iinfluenca numbers! Viola! Instant increase in deaths and hospital admissions!
    “Huzzah! Let’s lockdown the whole country” they cried!

  13. Both the CDC and the WHO need to get on the phone to Boris Johnson, Keir Starmer, Matt Hancock, Sir Patrick Vallance, and Chris Whitty and explain to them in words of one syllable why lockdowns don’t work. These gentlemen seem to believe that they do. There is no evidence available to back them up. They are digging a big hole for themselves which could end up with them going to jail for crimes against humanity.

  14. I knew this in March!
    Im utterly exhausted to the point of no return. I cant even do anything therapeutic to eleveate this depression. Im beyond angry im so disillusioned to the point of no return.

    Lets just admit it The NWO has won.
    Remember whom wrote something like Many people will die protesting this.

    End this madness now.

    If i could euthanize myself I would. I dont want to Fuck it up and live like a Vegetable for the rest of my life if it doesn’t go according to plan.
    I could try find a couple of Grams of Heroin or Fentanyl but wouldn’t know where to look.

    I cant beleive i Have even entertained the thought if dying.

    Lets all Stand and Clap for the NWO.

    Because running to the Window opening it up and screaming Im mad as HELL and I aint taking it anymore doesn’t work No one cares No one listened. Every where I walk i see everyone on the Phone their own mobile phone.
    I remember once when Mobile phones were considered to be a Luxury now everywhere I go i mean 95% of people are looking at their Phone, No talking, no smiling, no random conversations, No laughter, On the Bus 60 people and not a pin drop, i think me and 4 other people were not on their phones. What are they looking at Ill tell you they are being mind controlled by this device. Me included I get trapped into getting on my phone.

    Is this the world that Humans want?

    Technology has not made life easier in some cases its made humans regress.

    If the end game is mass death Well I Admit 100% that i am a candidate for that.
