Last Wednesday, the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, along with a number of other websites, published the following “Nine COVID Facts: A Pandemic of Fearmongering and Ignorance.”
Of the nine items listed below, previously, the Trends Journal has reported on seven of them on several occasions. The two additional facts are in regard to CDC data showing 85 percent of people testing positive were wearing masks and detailed information on COVID-19 remedies provided by Dr. Harvey Risch.
- The PCR Test is Practically Useless
According to a 29 August article in The New York Times, testing for the COVID-19 virus using the popular PCR method results in up to 90 percent of those tested showing positive results that are grossly misleading.
Officials in Massachusetts, New York, and Nevada compiled testing data that revealed the PCR test is unable to determine the amount of virus in a sample (viral load). The amount of virus in up to 90 percent of positive results turned out to be so minuscule, the patient was asymptomatic and posed no threat to others. Thus, the “positive” COVID-19 tests are virtually meaningless.
- A Positive Test is NOT a “Case”
Every positive COVID-19 test has immediately designated a CASE. As we saw in #1 above, up to 90 percent of positive tests result in minuscule amounts of viruses that do not sicken the subject. Historically, only patients who demonstrated actual symptoms of an illness were considered a case. Publishing positive test results as “Cases” is grossly misleading and needlessly alarming.
- The CDC Dramatically Lowered the COVID-19 Death Count
On 30 August, the CDC released new data showing only 6 percent of the deaths previously attributed to COVID-19 was due exclusively to the virus. The vast majority of those who died – 94 percent – may have had exposure to COVID-19 but also had preexisting illnesses such as heart disease, obesity, hypertension, cancer, and various respiratory illnesses. While they died with COVID-19, they did not die exclusively from COVID-19.
- The CDC Reports COVID-19 Survival Rate Over 99 Percent
On 10 September, the CDC updated their “Current Best Estimate” for COVID-19 survival showing over 99 percent of people exposed to the virus survived. Another way to say this is less than 1 percent of the exposures are potentially life-threatening. According to the CDC, the vast majority of deaths attributed to COVID-19 were concentrated in the population over age 70, close to normal life expectancy.
- CDC Reveals 85 Percent of Positive COVID-19 Cases Wore Face Masks Always or Often
In September 2020, the CDC released the results of a study conducted in July where they discovered that 85 percent of positive COVID-19 test subjects reported wearing a cloth face mask always or often for two weeks prior to testing positive. The majority of the test subjects, 71 percent, reported always wearing a cloth face mask, and 14 percent reported often wearing a cloth face mask. The only rational conclusion from this study is that cloth face masks offer little if any protection from COVID infection.
- There are Inexpensive, Proven Therapies for COVID-19 Treatment
Harvey Risch, MD, PhD, heads the Yale University School of Epidemiology. He authored the article, “The Key to Defeating Covid-19 Already Exists. We Need to Start Using It,” published in Newsweek on 23 July. Dr. Risch documents the proven effectiveness of treating patients diagnosed with COVID using a combination of hydroxychloroquine, an antibiotic such as azithromycin, and the nutritional supplement zinc. Medical doctors across the globe have reported very positive results using this protocol, particularly for early-stage COVID patients.
- The U.S. Death Rate is NOT “Spiking”
If COVID-19 were in fact the lethal killer it’s made out to be, one would expect to see a significant spike this year in the number of overall deaths reported compared to years prior to the pandemic. But that hasn’t happened. According to the CDC, as of early May, the total number of deaths in the U.S. was 944,251 from 1 January to 30 April. This is actually slightly lower than the number of deaths during the same period in 2017 when 946,067 total deaths were reported.
- Most Covid-19 Deaths Occur at the End of a Normal Lifespan
According to the CDC, as of 2017, U.S. males can expect a normal lifespan of 76.1 years and females 81.1 years. A little over 80 percent of suspected COVID-19 deaths have occurred in people over age 65. According to a 28 June New York Post article, almost half of all COVID-suspected deaths have occurred in nursing/elder care homes that predominately house people with preexisting health conditions and who are close to or past their normal life expectancy. Had these patients instead caught the seasonal flu, similar results would have been expected.
- CDC Data Shows Minimal COVID Risk to Children & Young Adults
In the CDC’s 10 September update, they reported the estimated Infection Mortality Rate (IFR) for children aged 0-19 to be 99.97 percent of those infected who survive. For those aged 20-49, the survival rate was almost 99.98 percent. Even those aged 70 years and older had a survival rate of 94.6 percent. To put this in perspective, the CDC data suggest that a child or young adult up to age 19 has a greater chance of death from some type of accident than they do from catching COVID.
Ron Paul concludes:
“Slowly the people are recognizing the great fraud perpetrated on them by bureaucrats and elected officials who have sworn to uphold rights and freedoms as spelled out in the US Constitution. The time has come to hold these criminals accountable by utilizing the legal system to bring them to justice.
Either we act now to preserve freedom and liberty for our children and future generations yet unborn, or we meekly submit to tyrants who crave more power and control. I will not comply!”
TRENDPOST: Not only is this information, much of which we have reported previously in the Trends Journal, being ignored by the media, but those that report it are also being censored.
