Covid excess deaths and other myths destroyed, More US excess deaths in 2017, Covid deaths also exaggerated, Lockdowns and masks questioned, PNAS study

“Why are we vaccinating healthy adults when 81 percent of Covid-19 cases are mild and there is  a 99 percent survival rate. Why are we testing vaccines on children who are minimally impacted by the disease?”…Citizen Wells

“VAERS received 4,434 reports of death (0.0017%) among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine.”...CDC May 11, 2021

“The FDA has approved the Covid vaccine for use on children yet only half of their employees have embraced it and patients are not being fully informed of risks.”…Citizen Wells

From The Defender.

“COVID Deaths — Putting the Numbers in Perspective

According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were more excess deaths in the U.S. in 2017, than there were in 2020.

Every year roughly between 2.8 and 3 million people die in the United States — just under 1% of the population.

In some years, deaths exceed projections, for instance in a bad flu year. These extra deaths are characterized as “excess deaths.”

In February, the CDC reported it attributed 376,504 deaths in 2020 to COVID-19. Each death is regrettable, but to put that number in perspective, the COVID deaths in 2020 were actually lower than the 401,000 excess deaths in 2017 — a bad flu year.

This finding mirrors excess death data from other countries, where excess deaths were also higher in 2017 than in 2020.

A recent research paper in the prestigious journal, The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, points out these statistics and then an even more surprising claim:

“The comparison is more striking when years of life lost (YLL) is the measure used. Goldstein and Lee (11) estimate that the mean loss of life years for a person dying from COVID-19 in the United States is 11.7 y. Multiplying 377,000 decedents by 11.7 y lost per decedent gives a total of 4.41 M years of life lost to COVID-19 in 2020, only a third of the 13.02 million life years lost to excess mortality in the United States in 2017 (Table 1). The reason that the comparison is so much sharper for YLL than for excess deaths is that COVID-19 deaths in 2020 occurred at much older ages, on average, than the excess deaths of 2017.”

In other words, while more than 4 million years of life were lost in 2020, more than 13 million were lost in 2017. This echoes what many experts have been saying for months — COVID is comparable to a severe flu that disproportionately affects old people, but is less dangerous for young people even than the flu.

Some might claim COVID deaths would have been much worse without lockdowns and mask mandates. There is increasing evidence, however, that these non-pharmaceutical interventions had little or no effect on COVID mortality.

Good examples are South and North Dakota, two neighboring states with similar populations and almost identical COVID death curves (see data below), even though North Dakota instituted a state-wide mask mandate and restrictions on indoor activities last fall, while South Dakota did not.”

We know the Covid deaths are exaggerated because of the numerous reports from health care professionals and the CDC’s own wording of “likely.”

CDC latest graph comparing Covid to flu emergency room visits reveals all, Destroys false narratives, Covid peak 7.2 percent and no flu visits?

CDC latest graph comparing Covid to flu emergency room visits reveals all, Destroys false narratives, Covid peak 7.2 percent and no flu visits?

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”…Joseph Goebbels

“More than 6,000 healthy children in the U.S. and Canada will be enrolled in the Moderna Covid-19 Vaccine Study for which the benefits to society are nil and the risks unknown.”...Citizen Wells

“it is my sincere hope that this public letter might stimulate FDA, Pfizer and Moderna leaders to think critically and quickly about the immunological danger the COVID-19 vaccine might pose to those persons naturally infected by SARS-CoV-2 — most especially to those infected who are recently convalescent, asymptomatic carriers, the elderly and frail or those with significant cardiovascular risk factors.”...Dr. Hooman Noorchashm

This latest graph from the CDC reveals much, raises more questions and destroys some of the Covid-19 narratives,

First, at its peak, covid visits account for only 7.2 percent of emergency room visits.

Is that what you were led to believe?

And there were no flu emergency room visits in 2020 – 2021 when in February 2019 – 2020 there were more flu visits than covid in 2021?

This apparently proves the theory of misdiagnosis.

And Covid visits at peak times were only slightly higher than previous flu seasons. Even with all of the hype.

And furthermore, other data the CDC has revealed is troubling, including revelations that all 3 vaccines are causing blood clots.

And why hasn’t the CDC presented any more “COVID-19 Vaccine Safety Monitoring” reports since February 26, 2021???

From CBS News March 31, 2021.

“Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine found safe and 100% effective in 12- to 15-year-olds, company says

Pfizer announced Wednesday that its COVID-19 vaccine is safe and strongly protective in kids as young as 12, a step toward possibly beginning shots in that age group before they head back to school in the fall.

Most COVID-19 vaccines being rolled out worldwide are for adults, who are at higher risk from the coronavirus. Pfizer’s vaccine is authorized for ages 16 and older. But vaccinating children of all ages will be critical to stopping the pandemic – and helping schools, at least the upper grades, start to look a little more normal after months of disruption.

In a study of 2,260 U.S. volunteers aged 12 to 15, preliminary data showed there were no cases of COVID-19 among fully vaccinated adolescents compared to 18 among those given placebo shots, Pfizer reported.

Pfixer said the study “demonstrated 100% efficacy and robust antibody responses, exceeding those recorded earlier in vaccinated participants aged 16 to 25 years old, and was well tolerated.””

“Children represent about 13% of COVID-19 cases documented in the U.S. And while children are far less likely than adults to get seriously ill, at least 268 have died from COVID-19 in the U.S. and more than 13,500 have been hospitalized, according to a tally by the American Academy of Pediatrics. That’s more than die from the flu in an average year. In addition, a small number have developed a serious inflammatory condition linked to the coronavirus.”

CBS regurgitates what the pharma company touts.

The last paragraph, apparently crafted by CBS, is misleading at best.

Stated: “That’s more than die from the flu”

Choosing the best apples to apples comparison from the CDC, of under age 5, 81 died of flu in the 2019-2020 season. 67 died of Covid-19. And remember, Covid deaths have been over stated.

Stated: “more than 13,500 have been hospitalized”

That seemed high.

The CDC reports 2,629 hospitalizations.

https://gis.cdc.gov/grasp/covidnet/COVID19_5.html

One is given the impression that the vaccines have been adequately safety tested.

They have not and are still experimental.

Deaths and injuries thus far from vaccinations have occurred twice as much in the younger age group of adults.

We do not yet know the impact on children, the age group that least needs a vaccine.

Covid-19 facts not fake news lies, 43% of deaths in nursing homes, Gov Cooper et al enabled “protesters” failed public, Deaths not cases

Covid-19 facts not fake news lies, 43% of deaths in nursing homes, Gov Cooper et al enabled “protesters” failed public, Deaths not cases

“The (American) press, which is mostly controlled by vested
interests, has an excessive influence on public opinion.”… Albert Einstein

“There were 58,148 total deaths the week ending 2/1/2020, pre Covid-19, in the middle of winter and flu season. There were 15,221 total deaths the week ending 6/20/2020”…Citizen Wells

“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells

 

Cases of Covid-19 are up.

That is all the lying fake news media wants you to hear.

Why? It is all about removing President Trump.

Now the truth, facts, reality check from Citizen Wells.

The true arbiter of the impact on our health is death.

Something we can use as an apples to apples comparison.

In any given year, Americans dies from a myriad of diseases and accidents.

https://citizenwells.com/2020/04/01/no-wuhan-covid-19-us-problem-ny-nj-problem-typical-year-almost-3-million-deaths-647k-heart-disease-600k-cancer-flu-pneumonia-7th-end-shutdowns-cure-worse-than-disease/

Also, as reported at Citizen Wells, the vast majority of Covid-19 deaths happen to older folks and those with preexisting conditions.

https://citizenwells.com/2020/05/11/covid-19-wuhan-virus-deaths-facts-over-fake-news-age-55-over-92-age-65-over-80-high-percentage-in-long-term-care-aka-nursing-homes-governors-lousy-job/

Now let’s look at the latest data from the CDC, week ending June 20, 2020.

There were 271 Covid-19 deaths for the week ending 6/20/2020 with 90 % being age 55 or over.

Total deaths for the week were 15,221.

Peak Covid-19 deaths occurred the week ending 4/18/2020.

There were 16,343 Covid-19 deaths.

93 % of those were age 55 and over.

https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid_weekly/index.htm#AgeAndSex

It is clear that Covid-19 deaths have plummeted despite the increase in recorded cases.

It is also clear that the vast majority of the deaths have happened to older Americans and those with compromised health.

What we do not yet know is the impact of “protesters”, thugs, rioters and modern day Nazis given carte blanche to gather and create bedlam by governors like NC Roy Cooper, the same governor who referred to the Ace Speedway gatherings as a “Imminent Hazard.”

Time will tell.

“Since some of our earliest news about Covid-19 came out of a nursing home in Washington State, we had a proper heads up.

Conclusion: governors and states apparently have done a poor job of protecting our most vulnerable populations in nursing homes and probably overreacted in regard to the rest of the population.

The fake news media has not helped.

The message of this article is do not listen to the fake news media unless you are trying to correct their lies and exaggerations (Yellow Journalism).

Question everything including Citizen Wells.

Your your brains and common sense.

We are being bombarded with lies about the impact of Covid-19 deaths on the US.

From Citizen Wells April 4, 2020.

3.5 million”Coronavirus Covid-19 US death stats April 4, 2020, 35 states 50 or less, 19 states 15 or less, NY and NJ account for half, Geography population and/or responsibility?”

https://citizenwells.com/2020/04/04/coronavirus-covid-19-us-death-stats-april-4-2020-35-states-50-or-less-19-states-15-or-less-ny-and-nj-account-for-half-geography-population-and-or-responsibility/

The population of a state can be a factor.

However, CT, with a population of 3.5 million has 2,718 deaths while NC, the 9th most populous state with a population of 10.5 million has 492 deaths.

The prominent difference is CT being near the epicenter, NY City.

5 states, NY, NJ, MA, PA and CT account for 61% of deaths.

9 states, NY, NJ, MA, IL, CA, PA, MI, CT and LA account for 76% of the deaths.

Most of the US has a problem, but not one of the magnitude portrayed by the fake new media.

From Fox News.

“Sources believe coronavirus originated in Wuhan lab as part of China’s efforts to compete with US

There is increasing confidence that COVID-19 likely originated in a Wuhan laboratory, though not as a bioweapon but as part of China’s attempt to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States, multiple sources who have been briefed on the details of early actions by China’s government and seen relevant materials tell Fox News.

The sources believe the initial transmission of the virus was bat-to-human, and that “patient zero” worked at the laboratory, then went into the population in Wuhan.

The “increasing confidence” comes from classified and open-source documents and evidence, the sources said. Fox News has requested to see the evidence directly. Sources emphasized — as is often the case with intelligence — that it’s not definitive and should not be characterized as such. Some inside the administration and the intelligence and epidemiological communities are more skeptical, and the investigation is continuing.

What all of the sources agree about is the extensive cover-up of data and information about COVID-19 orchestrated by the Chinese government.”

NC has a population of approx 10.5 million and is the 9th most populous state.

NC has an extremely low death rate from Covid-19.

I agree with social distancing and common sense measures.

I do not agree with NC Governor Roy Cooper’s absurd edict today, April 9, 2020, in his executive Executive order.

This is not NY, NJ or idiot LA.

Governor Cooper has overstepped his authority, apparently lost his mind and should be removed from office.

From ABC 11 News:

“Governor Roy Cooper announced during a news conference that a new executive order will go into effect Monday that makes changes to guidelines for shopping and grocery and retail stores.

Starting Monday at 5 p.m., stores cannot exceed 20 percent of fire capacity or five people for every 1,000 square feet at any given time.

Stores must also have 6-foot markers at congregation areas like checkouts and must perform frequent cleaning and disinfection.

Additionally, the executive order will encourage that all stores have shopping hours for seniors and at-risk people as well as have hand sanitizer accessible for shoppers. The governor asks that stores use shields for employees at checkout and limit aisles to one-way traffic.”

https://abc11.com/health/watch-gov-cooper-gives-update-on-covid-19-in-nc/6088955/

“five people for every 1,000 square feet”

Cooper is obviously on drugs.

I waited to write this. To let the dust settle.

I am all for erring on the side of caution.

I was ok with shutting down schools early. Although not ok with stating far out in the future ahead of facts.

I am ok with common sense precautions like limiting crowds and social distancing.

I can now state with near certainty, based on the facts and more common sense, that we need to end nationwide shutdowns.

One size does not fit all.

This is a large country that is mostly not like the NY City metro area. I.E., not too densely populated and better prepared.

Below is the chart of annual deaths in the US by cause:

Number of deaths for leading causes of death:

  • Heart disease: 647,457
  • Cancer: 599,108
  • Accidents (unintentional injuries): 169,936
  • Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 160,201
  • Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 146,383
  • Alzheimer’s disease: 121,404
  • Diabetes: 83,564
  • Influenza and Pneumonia: 55,672
  • Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome and nephrosis: 50,633
  • Intentional self-harm (suicide): 47,173

https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/deaths.htm

Flu and pneumonia are 7th.

There are 189,356 cases of Wuhan Covid-19 disease in the US with 4,073 deaths.

Over half of the cases and almost half of the deaths are in NY and NJ.

New York and New Jersey have the problem and the rest of the nation should not pay for their mistakes.

I believe we should help them.

I have long believed that humans should not live packed together like sardines.

That has always led to disease and crime

Severe measures such as shutdowns should be a local decision.

The governor of NC for example, Roy Cooper, should not now dictate a statewide shutdown.

NC has a population of over 1o.5 million with only 12 Wuhan Covid-19 deaths.

The cure is worse than the disease.

From Mises Wire.

“The shutdown of the American economy by government decree should end. The lasting and far-reaching harms caused by this authoritarian precedent far outweigh those caused by the COVID-19 virus. The American people—individuals, families, businesses—must decide for themselves how and when to reopen society and return to their daily lives.

Neither the Trump administration nor Congress has the legal authority to shut down American life absent at least baseline due process. As Judge Andrew Napolitano recently wrote, business closures, restrictions on assembly and movement, and quarantines are not constitutionally permissible under some magic “emergency” doctrine. At a minimum, the federal government must show potential imminent harm by specific infected individuals at some form of hearing or trial.

These due process requirements are not suspended.

State and local officials may claim, or even possess, lawful police powers to shut down their communities. We offer no analysis of such powers or claims under the myriad of state constitutions and authorizing legislation. But they should resist exercising these powers. The governor of Virginia, in particular, deserves admonition for unilaterally imposing a lengthy period of virtual house arrest.

We do not know, and cannot yet know, how many Americans will become sick or die from the virus. We do know that predictions regarding infection and death rates are highly unreliable. Even actual deaths attributable to COVID-19 are not so easy to count, as Italy has discovered. Age, general health, and comorbidity are difficult variables to assess, and people may die “with” the virus but not “from” it. It is also very difficult to assess the lethality of the virus relative to previously known types of flu and colds.”
