As the emerging data continues to indicate, COVID-19 is more of a nasty flu than the evil enemy created by the mainstream media. Still, it continues to serve the dubious purpose of boosting sagging media ratings and augmenting power-hungry politicians’ political influence.
Since the outbreak of the virus in January, the Trends Journal has been reporting data showing that COVID-19 death estimates have been dramatically exaggerated by health organizations, politicians, and select media/government “medical experts.”
But the seasonal flu has not shut down the global economy in spite of the fact that:
- As many as 63,000 have died from COVID-19 in the U.S. to date, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; and
- Up to 656,000 may die worldwide from the seasonal flu this year.
Note that the seasonal flu did not cause massive unemployment, the economic devastation of many millions, the destruction of millions of businesses both big and small, dangerous food shortages, and the untold suffering of countless people from government-imposed social isolation.
To date, of a global population of 7.7 billion, according to Johns Hopkins University, some 211,000 have died worldwide from coronavirus.
TRENDPOST: The mainstream media and politicians have ignored the fact that the “killer” coronavirus flu has not been as deadly as advertised. Equally significant, however, has been the deafening silence from the Presstitutes and politicians about all the other diseases that are killing tens of millions each year from the poisons pumped into the earth, water and air; the pesticides and chemicals infused into our food supply; and the prescription drug epidemic (the fourth ranking cause of death).
Back in the States
Governor Andrew Cuomo, who imposed draconian lockdown measures in New York State, and who now is a media “celebrity” anointed as one of the foremost COVID-19 authorities, finally disclosed what the Trends Journal has been reporting for months: the virus was not nearly as deadly as hyped.
“Early antibody testing for the coronavirus in 19 New York counties suggests up to 2.7 million people could have been infected in the state alone, meaning the real death rate may be much lower… If the infection rate is 13.9%, then it changes the theories of what the death rate is if you get infected. 13% of the population is about 2.7 million people who have been infected. If you look at what we have now as a death total, which is 15,500, that would be about 0.5% death rate.”
Unmentioned by his adoring media fan club was why he closed down the entire state, put millions out of work, increased hardships among the citizenry, destroyed businesses, and sapped the joy out of life with a “killer” disease that has, in fact, only a 0.5 percent death rate.
Also important to note (but again ignored by the fear mongers), on 3 March, the WHO published its estimate for the percentage of deaths from COVID-19 to be 3.4 percent. That’s 6.5 times the amount of people who actually have died in New York State, the epicenter of the disease in the U.S.
Noting that the death rate from COVID-19 is far less than previously estimated, on 21 April, the Los Angeles County Dept. of Public Health and the University of Southern California reported the “preliminary results from a collaborative scientific study suggests infections from the new coronavirus are far more widespread – and the fatality rate much lower – in L.A. County than previously thought.”
According to Neeraj Sood, Professor of Public Policy and the lead investigator, “We haven’t known the true extent of COVID-19 infections in our community because we have only tested people with symptoms, and the availability of tests has been limited… The estimates also suggest that we might have to recalibrate disease prediction models and rethink public health strategies.”
TRENDPOST: Again, unmentioned in the news reports of the changing data is the fact that if COVID-19 was the most deadly outbreak in a hundred years, as they contend… then given that evidence proves a much greater number of people have been infected than thought; millions, not a few hundred thousand, would have already died worldwide.
