Abstract
Background
Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine have been found to be efficient on SARS-CoV-2, and reported to be efficient in Chinese COV-19 patients. We evaluate the role of hydroxychloroquine on respiratory viral loads.

Patients and methods
French Confirmed COVID-19 patients were included in a single arm protocol from early March to March 16th, to receive 600mg of hydroxychloroquine daily and their viral load in nasopharyngeal swabs was tested daily in a hospital setting. Depending on their clinical presentation, azithromycin was added to the treatment. Untreated patients from another center and cases refusing the protocol were included as negative controls. Presence and absence of virus at Day6-post inclusion was considered the end point.

Results
Six patients were asymptomatic, 22 had upper respiratory tract infection symptoms and eight had lower respiratory tract infection symptoms.
Twenty cases were treated in this study and showed a significant reduction of the viral carriage at D6-post inclusion compared to controls, and much lower average carrying duration than reported of untreated patients in the literature. Azithromycin added to hydroxychloroquine was significantly more efficient for virus elimination.

Conclusion
Despite its small sample size our survey shows that hydroxychloroquine treatment is significantly associated with viral load reduction/disappearance in COVID-19 patients and its effect is reinforced by azithromycin.

1. Introduction
In late December 2019, an outbreak of an emerging disease (COVID-19) due to a novel coronavirus (named SARS-CoV-2 latter) started in Wuhan, China and rapidly spread in China and outside [1,2]. The WHO declared the epidemic of COVID-19 as a pandemic on March 12th 2020 [3]. According to a recent Chinese stud, about 80% of patients present with mild disease and the overall case-fatality rate is about 2.3% but reaches 8.0% in patients aged 70 to 79 years and 14.8% in those aged ≥80 years [4]. However, there is probably an important number of asymptomatic carriers in the population, and thus the mortality rate is probably overestimated. France is now facing the COVID-19 wave with more than 4500 cases, as of March 14th 2020 [5]. Thus, there is an urgent need for an effective treatment to treat symptomatic patients but also to decrease the duration of virus carriage in order to limit the transmission in the community. Among candidate drugs to treat COVID-19, repositioning of old drugs for use as antiviral treatment is an interesting strategy because knowledge on safety profile, side effects, posology and drug interactions are well known [6,7].

A recent paper reported an inhibitor effect of remdesivir (a new antiviral drug) and chloroquine (an old antimalarial drug) on the growth of SARS-CoV-2 in vitro, [8] and an early clinical trial conducted in COVID-19 Chinese patients, showed that chloroquine had a significant effect, both in terms of clinical outcome and viral clearance, when comparing to controls groups [9,10]. Chinese experts recommend that patients diagnosed as mild, moderate and severe cases of COVID-19 pneumonia and without contraindications to chloroquine, be treated with 500 mg chloroquine twice a day for ten days [11].

Hydroxychloroquine (an analogue of chloroquine) has been demonstrated to have an anti-SARS-CoV activity in vitro [12]. Hydroxychloroquine clinical safety profile is better than that of chloroquine (during long-term use) and allows higher daily dose [13] and has fewer concerns about drug-drug interactions [14]. Our team has a very comprehensive experience in successfully treating patients with chronic diseases due to intracellular bacteria (Q fever due to Coxiella burnetii and Whipple's disease due to Tropheryma whipplei) with long-term hydroxychloroquine treatment (600 mg/day for 12 to 18 months) since more than 20 years. [15,16] We therefore started to conduct a clinical trial aiming at assessing the effect of hydroxychloroquine on SARS-CoV-2-infected patients after approval by the French Ministry of Health. In this report we describe our early results, focusing on virological data in patients receiving hydroxychloroquine as compared to a control group.

2. Study population and Methods
2.1. Setting
This ongoing study is coordinated by The Méditerranée Infection University Hospital Institute in Marseille. Patients who were proposed a treatment with hydroxychloroquine were recruited and managed in Marseille centre. Controls without hydroxychloroquine treatment were recruited in Marseille, Nice, Avignon and Briançon centers, all located in South France.

Coronavirus hype biggest political hoax in history

Cheryl K. Chumley - The Washington Times
Tuesday, April 28, 2020

ANALYSIS/OPINION:
The new coronavirus is real.
The response to the coronavirus is hyped. And in time, this hype will be revealed as politically hoaxed.

In fact, COVID-19 will go down as one of the political world’s biggest, most shamefully overblown, overhyped, overly and irrationally inflated and outright deceptively flawed responses to a health matter in American history, one that was carried largely on the lips of medical professionals who have no business running a national economy or government.

The facts are this: COVID-19 is a real disease that sickens some, proves fatal to others, mostly the elderly — and does nothing to the vast majority.

That’s it.

That, in a nutshell, is it.

Or, in the words of Dan Erickson and Artin Massih, doctors and co-owners of Accelerated Urgent Care in Bakersfield, California: Let’s get the country reopened — and now.

“Do we need to still shelter in place? Our answer is emphatically no. Do we need businesses to be shut down? Emphatically no. … [T]he data is showing it’s time to lift,” Ericksonsaid, in a recent interview.

He’s right. They’re right.

The data to keep America closed and Americans closed in simply doesn’t exist.

If truth be told, it’s questionable it ever did.

The scientists leading the coronavirus shutdown charge predicted in March that in America, between 100,000 and 250,000 would die. They based those estimates on computer modeling.

But at the same time they were basing those estimates on computer modeling, they were acknowledging that computer modeling is inaccurate and errs on the side of hype.

“I’ve never seen a model of the diseases I’ve dealt with where the worst-case actually came out,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of President Donald Trump’s White House coronavirus task force, during a CNN interview in March. “They always overshoot.”

Catch that? Fauci’s message: Computer models are flawed and inaccurate and always overestimate the problem.

But from these faulty overinflated computer figures came all the constitutionally questionable actions by government anyway — from ordering businesses closed to quarantining-slash-house arresting American citizens to doing some quick and pitiful and economically painful income redistribution schemes via stimulus funds’ legislation.

Since, about 56,000 have died in America due to coronavirus — or have they? Again, the facts are flimsy.

Government ordered hospitals weeks ago to stop performing elective surgeries to make way for the projected numbers of coronavirus patients. So they did. And in so doing, they cut off their revenue streams. So Congress passed legislation giving hospitals billions of dollars to treat coronavirus patients. Conflict of interest? Yikes. Yes.

The coronavirus counts, already flawed from computer modeling, were then given another flaw treatment.

“[Pennsylvania] removes more than 200 deaths from official coronavirus count as questions mount about reporting process, data accuracy,” The Inquirer reported.

Add to that the ever-changing nature of a virus that spreads by air and contact, and honestly, suddenly, even expert Fauci’s best guess is about as good as Joe Neighbor’s best guess. So that leaves common sense, combined with knowledge of past viruses, to guide.

But the quote-unquote medical experts refused to go there, refused to acknowledge common sense, refused to compare with past viruses in any way that didn’t hype the coronavirus counts.

This virus was different, Americans were told. This virus was far more contagious than anything ever before seen or studied, Americans were told. And any time the case counts dropped off and the numbers proved wrong, well, this was due to the social distancing and quarantining and face-mask wearing that Americans had been doing, by government’s order — Americans were told.

It just didn’t make sense.

It just doesn’t add up.

It just didn’t, and doesn’t, justify the utter shredding of civil rights.

And now some in the medical community, thank goodness, are starting to point out the glaring omissions of logic and fact that have plagued this overhyped, overreaching coronavirus crackdown that has stretched on far, far too long.

Among some of Erickson’s remarks: “This is immunology — microbiology 101. This is the basis of what we’ve known for years: When you take human beings and you say, ‘Go into your house, clean all your counters, Lysol them down’ … what does it do to our immune system? … Sheltering in place decreases your immune system.”

And this: “Any time you have something new in the [medical] community, it sparks fear — and I would have done what Dr. Fauci did … initially. … But you know, looking at theories and models — which is what these folks use — is very different than the way the actual virus presents itself throughout communities.”

And this: “Do you think you’re protected from COVID when you wear gloves that transfer disease everywhere? … We wear masks in an acute setting to protect us. [But] we’re not wearing masks. Why is that? Because we understand microbiology. We understand immunology. And we want strong immune systems. I don’t want to hide in my home, develop a weak immune system and then come out and get disease.”

And this: “When I’m writing up my death report I’m being pressured to add COVID. Why is that? Why are we being pressured to add COVID? To maybe increase the numbers, and make it look a little bit worse than it is. We’re being pressured in-house to add COVID to the diagnostic list when we think it has nothing to do with the actual cause of death. The actual cause of death was not COVID, but it’s being reported as one of the diseases processes. … COVID didn’t kill them, 25 years of tobacco use killed.”

Does it get any clearer than that?

Seriously, America. The only reason America is still in shutdown mode is political.

Either politicians are too afraid to make any move that might come back to bite them politically or politicians are using this coronavirus to political advantage — to, say, pass gun control laws, like Virginia’s governor, Ralph Northam. Or to, say, float campaign hopes on the current ravaged economy, like former Vice President Joe Biden and oh, all the Democrats facing races.

But for the rest of America — the rest of hardworking, freedom-loving America — it’s time to reel in the radically unconstitutional.

“If you’re going to dance on someone’s constitutional rights, you better have a good reason — you better have a really good reason, not just a theory,” Erickson said. “The data is showing us it’s time to lift … so if we don’t lift, what is the reason?”

That is the key question.

As time goes by, the answer will only become more and more evident. The coronavirus may be real — but the hype is hoaxed. Now let’s just hope this is a one-time hoax that doesn’t roll around every time flu season approaches.

Donald Trump says he has seen evidence that the coronavirus started in Wuhan virology laboratory – as he warns he could impose tariffs of $1 TRILLION on China in retribution
  • Trump said he was confident the virus came from a lab in Wuhan, China
  • The president also warned he could impose tariffs of $1 trillion on China as a punishment for the pandemic
  • He seemed to rule out withholding US debt payments to China calling it a 'rough game' that could damage the 'sanctity' of the dollar
  • Sources said US officials are seeking retribution from the nation, such as canceling debt or stripping China of its 'sovereign immunity'
  • Trump also blasted the World Health Organization Thursday
  • He then cast doubt on the theory the virus jumped from animals to humans
  • Here’s how to help people impacted by Covid-19
By RACHEL SHARP FOR DAILYMAIL.COM and GEOFF EARLE, DEPUTY U.S. POLITICAL EDITOR FOR DAILYMAIL.COM

PUBLISHED: 18:46 EDT, 30 April 2020 | UPDATED: 02:20 EDT, 1 May 2020

President Donald Trump said he has seen evidence that coronavirus started in the Wuhan virology laboratory, as he warned he could impose tariffs of $1 trillion on China in retribution for the pandemic.

The president made the explosive charge that the coronavirus that has caused millions of infections and wreaked havoc on the global economy may have been created in the Chinese lab during his coronavirus press briefing Thursday.

He also suggested the federal government is exploring ways to punish China for triggering the outbreak by imposing tariffs but he stopped short of saying he would refuse to pay back US debts.

'Yes I have. Yes I have,' Trump said when asked if he had seen proof the virus originated in the Wuhan Institute of Technology.

The lab is located near a wet market that has been identified as the likely epicenter of the outbreak that took place late last year.

However, the president would not divulge what the evidence was that confirmed his suspicions, when asked by a reporter.

When asked if he would consider refusing to pay US's debts to China as punishment, the president said he 'could do it differently' and suggested the US will impose high tariffs of around $1 trillion on the nation.

'I could do the same thing but even for more money just putting on tariffs,' he said.

'So I don't need to do that. It's approximately a trillion dollars - a little bit more I understand but we can do that in probably a little bit more of a forthright manner.'

Trump said withholding debt payments would be a 'rough game' that could damage the 'sanctity' of the dollar and ruled out taking this approach.

'You start playing those games and that's tough,' he continued.

'We have the dollar to protect. We want to protect the sanctity of the dollar, the importance of the dollar. It's the greatest currency in the history of the world.'

The president continued: 'It's a good question to say, 'well oh gee, we owe you a certain amount of money, we're going to keep it'. But when you start playing that game you really start hurting the sanctity of the greatest currency on earth but we can do it in other ways.

Assuming the virus originated from the Wuhan lab easily satisfies Occam's Razor.

I think many governments are hedging their bets on this being a modified virus in order to apply leverage even though Dr. Francis Boyle, the author of the US Bio-Weapons Act has declared it as such.

Add in all the circumstantial evidence like Chinese scientist caught stealing corona virus samples from a high-level bio lab in Canada on down to genetic markers in the virus itself and finally to the eventual non-typical response to the virus locally by the CCP, I think it would be quite hard for anyone to make the case in any court of law that this was a natural event.

99% of Those Who Died From Virus Had Other Illness, Italy Says
By
Tommaso Ebhardt,
Chiara Remondini, and
Marco Bertacche
March 18, 2020, 6:56 AM MDT

More than 99% of Italy’s coronavirus fatalities were people who suffered from previous medical conditions, according to a study by the country’s national health authority.

After deaths from the virus reached more than 2,500, with a 150% increase in the past week, health authorities have been combing through data to provide clues to help combat the spread of the disease.

Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte’s government is evaluating whether to extend a nationwide lockdown beyond the beginning of April, daily La Stampa reported Wednesday. Italy has more than 31,500 confirmed cases of the illness.

The new study could provide insight into why Italy’s death rate, at about 8% of total infected people, is higher than in other countries.

The Rome-based institute has examined medical records of about 18% of the country’s coronavirus fatalities, finding that just three victims, or 0.8% of the total, had no previous pathology. Almost half of the victims suffered from at least three prior illnesses and about a fourth had either one or two previous conditions.


More than 75% had high blood pressure, about 35% had diabetes and a third suffered from heart disease.

The average age of those who’ve died from the virus in Italy is 79.5. As of March 17, 17 people under 50 had died from the disease. All of Italy’s victims under 40 have been males with serious existing medical conditions.

While data released Tuesday point to a slowdown in the increase of cases, with a 12.6% rise, a separate study shows Italy could be underestimating the real number of cases by testing only patients presenting symptoms.

According to the GIMBE Foundation, about 100,000 Italians have contracted the virus, daily Il Sole 24 Ore reported. That would bring back the country’s death rate closer to the global average of about 2%.

Perhaps she is just referring to herd immunity. That's how it came across for me.

China lied about origin of coronavirus, leaked intelligence report says
By Dana Kennedy
May 2, 2020
A damning dossier leaked from the “Five Eyes” intelligence alliance claims that China lied to the world about human-to-human transmission of the virus, disappeared whistleblowers and refused to hand over virus samples so the West could make a vaccine.

The bombshell 15-page research document also indicated that some of the five intelligence agencies believe that the virus may have been leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a claim initially dismissed as a conspiracy theory because Chinese officials insisted the virus came from the local wet markets, according to the Australian Daily Telegraph.

At the same time, a senior intelligence source told Fox News that while most intelligence agencies believe COVID-19 originated in the Wuhan lab, “it was thought to have been released accidentally.”

WHO Washes Its Hands of Any Responsibility for the Coronavirus Pandemic
BY RICK MORAN MAY 02, 2020


The World Health Organization, which worked hand in hand with China to spread disinformation about the coronavirus, says that it’s not its fault if a million people will die because the WHO gave the world “enough time to intervene.”

The WHO’s logic is impeccable. Apparently, its leaders think because they declared a “Global Health Emergency” on January 30 that nations should have locked down, shut down, and sheltered in place immediately.

Meanwhile, the WHO had people on the ground in Wuhan who knew how bad it was in China and how bad it was likely to get once people exposed to the virus left China to go home.

The agency declared Covid-19 a global health emergency on Jan. 30 when there were only 82 cases outside of China and zero deaths, WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a press conference on Friday. “Meaning, the world had enough time to intervene.”​
“Me and my colleagues believe that,” he added. “To declare a global emergency in that situation I think it says it all. It says it all.”​
What it says is, “I’m a bureaucrat and I’m covering my behind.” And the WHO also declared a global health emergency in 2009 during the Swine Flu and 2014 during the Ebola crisis. I don’t recall nations “intervening” by shutting themselves up behind closed doors.

Tedros also emphasized that WHO sent a team of scientists and infectious disease experts in February to China when there were “many unknowns” and the outbreak “was raging.”​
“We didn’t waste any time. We didn’t want to waste any time,” he said. “I remember then people advising us then not to travel to China because this virus is new … and we said, ‘No, we go.’”​
The outbreak in China had been “raging” since early January. Unfortunately, the Chinese Communists forgot to tell anyone, and WHO graciously played along with them.

Tedros also said the agency had warned developed countries early that the virus would “surprise” them. “It did. We said that,” he said on April 20. “Let’s stop additional surprises.”​

“Told ya so” is hardly a defense. And warning industrialized nations that the virus would “surprise” them is about as vague and nondescript as it gets as far as warnings go. After all, we’re not talking about presents for Christmas. We’re talking about a million lives at risk.

Tedros is a consummate bureaucrat, which is probably why he got the job in the first place. But the incompetence and stupidity of his agency, as well as its curious cooperation with China in suppressing the facts, makes him a candidate to stand in the dock at the World Court when China is called to account for its crimes against humanity.

Can Tedros stop digging deeper? He’s already in an abyss. Is he hoping to hit the earth’s core?

No evidence of a second wave in Germany after lockdown lifted

Justin Huggler
,
The TelegraphMay 1, 2020



A full high Street as shoppers are out and about in Berlin as the German economy moves out of partial lockdown from the Corona Virus. Wlimersdorfer Strasse, Charlottenburg. - Craig Stennett for the Telegraph

All eyes have been on Germany this week, amid claims the country is facing a second wave of coronavirus infections because it lifted its lockdown too soon.

But the German government figures cited as evidence of a second wave show nothing of the sort.

Even Dominic Raab got in on the act, telling a Number 10 press conference “Having relaxed restrictions in Germany over the past week, they have seen a rise in the transmission rate of coronavirus”.

The problem, as German government scientists have been at pains to point out, is that it’s simply too early to know anything about the effects of lifting lockdown on transmission rates — because there is no reliable data yet.

The figure that made international headlines this week was a brief rise in the German reproduction number, or R — the number of people each infected person passes the virus on to.

The reproduction number had been falling for weeks, so when it rose above government targets to 1.0 on Monday, it was seized on as evidence of a second wave.

But as Prof Lothar Wieler of Germany’s Robert Koch Institute (RKI) explained this week, the rise didn’t include data on the effects of lifting lockdown. The only reliable data we have is the daily deaths and cases rate:

It takes time for new infections to be fed into the complex calculations that produce the R number.

Infections don’t show up immediately. Most people aren’t tested for the coronavirus until they start to show symptoms, which can take days to appear. Tests take time to process, and there is a further delay before positive results are reported to the authorities.

The RKI works on the basis of a 10 to 14 day delay in new infections showing up in the R number. And Monday’s brief rise came just 7 days after Germany began to lift its lockdown.

The rise was little more than a statistical blip within normal fluctuation rates, according to Prof Wieler.

As if in confirmation, on Wednesday the R number fell to 0.75 — its lowest level in more than a week — and it is now at 0.76.

Anxiety From Reactions to Covid-19 Will Destroy At Least Seven Times More Years of Life Than Can Be Saved by Lockdowns
By Andrew Glen, Ph.D. and James D. Agresti
May 4, 2020




Medical studies show that excessive stress and anxiety are among the most debilitating and deadly of all health hazards in the world. Beyond their obvious effects like suicide and substance abuse—these mental stressors are strongly related to and may trigger and inflame a host of ailments like high blood pressure, digestive disorders, heart conditions, infectious diseases, cancer, and pregnancy complications.

Based on a broad array of scientific data, Just Facts has computed that the anxiety created by reactions to Covid-19—such as stay-at-home orders, business shutdowns, media exaggerations, and legitimate concerns about the virus—will destroy at least seven times more years of human life than can possibly be saved by lockdowns to control the spread of the disease. This figure is a bare minimum, and the actual one is likely more than 90 times greater.

This study was reviewed by Joseph P. Damore, Jr., M.D., who concluded: “This research is engaging and thoroughly answers the question about the cure being worse than the disease.” Dr. Damore is a certified diplomate with the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, an assistant professor of psychiatry at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University, an assistant attending psychiatrist at New York Presbyterian Hospital, and an adjunct professor in the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Leadership at the U.S. Military Academy.

Stress and Anxiety Levels

Scientific surveys of U.S. residents have found that the mental health of about one-third to one-half of all adults has been substantially compromised by reactions to the Covid-19 pandemic. Examples include the following:

  • An American Psychiatric Association survey in mid-March found that 36% of adults report that anxiety over Covid-19 “is having a serious impact on their mental health.”
  • A Kaiser Family Foundation survey in late March found that 45% of adults “feel that worry and stress related to” Covid-19 “has had a negative impact on their mental health, an increase from 32% from early March.” Additionally, 19% of adults said it is having a “major impact” on their mental health.
  • A Benenson Strategy Group survey in late March revealed that the Covid-19 “situation has already affected” the “mental health” of 55% of U.S. adults “either a great deal or somewhat.”
  • A Kaiser Family Foundation survey in late April found that 56% of adults “report that worry and stress related to” Covid-19 “is affecting their mental health and wellbeing in various ways,” such as “trouble sleeping, “poor appetite or over-eating,” “frequent headaches or stomachaches,” “difficulty controlling their temper,” “increasing their alcohol or drug use,” and “worsening chronic conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure.”

Contributors to these mental health impacts include but are not limited to:

  • empirically grounded concerns about the virus.
  • anguish over the death of loved ones, although this is limited to a relatively small fraction of the public because the virus has killed one out of every 5,000 Americans, while one out of every 116 Americans die every year.
  • media outlets that overstate the deadliness of Covid-19 by:
  • government stay-at-home orders and self-imposed isolation, as evidenced by:
    • a survey commissioned by the University of Phoenix in late March that found 44% of U.S. adults are more lonely than they have ever been in their lives, which is a risk factor for suicide and many other psychologically driven fatal afflictions.
    • the late-March Kaiser Family Foundation survey, which “found that 47% of those sheltering in place reported negative mental health effects resulting from worry or stress,” a rate that “is significantly higher than the 37% among people who were not sheltering in place.”
    • the late-March Benenson Strategy Group survey, which found that “71% of Americans say they are concerned that ‘social distancing’ measures will have a negative impact on the country’s mental health—including 28% who are extremely or very concerned about this.”
  • government-mandated shutdowns of businesses in nearly every state that have cost millions of jobs and are reflected in the:
    • late-April Kaiser Family Foundation survey, which found that 35% of adults and 55% of workers “have lost their jobs or had a reduction in hours or pay as a result of” responses to Covid-19.
    • mid-March American Psychiatric Association survey, which found that 57% of adults are concerned that responses to the pandemic “will have a serious negative impact on their finances,” and 68% fear it “will have a long-lasting impact on the economy.”

Among all of the figures above, the lowest nationwide measure of people who have incurred psychological harm from reactions to Covid-19 is the 19% of adults in the late-March Kaiser Family Foundation survey who reported a “major impact” on their mental health. This survey included 1,226 respondents and has a margin of sampling error for this result of ± 2.2percentage points with 95% confidence.

Therefore, at least 16.8% of 255,200,373 adults in the United States—or 42,873,663 people—have suffered major mental harm from responses to Covid-19. This figure forms the first key basis of this study.

The Deadliness of Anxiety and Stress

Medical journals are rich with studies that attempt to measure the lethality of stress, anxiety, depression, and other psychological conditions. Determining this is very difficult because association does not prove causation, and unmeasured factors could be at play.

For example, a 2011 meta-analysis in the journal Social Science & Medicine about mortality, “psychosocial stress,” and job losses finds that “unemployment is associated with a substantially increased risk of death among broad segments of the population,” but there are conflicting theories as to why this is so. One is that “unemployment causes adverse changes in health behaviors, which in turn lead to deterioration of health.” Put simply, unemployment causes bad health. The other theory is that bad health causes unemployment. Both of these theories may be true, and factors that are not measured in the studies could be causing both unemployment and bad health. Thus, it is very difficult to isolate these variables and determine which is causing the others and to what degree.

While trying to address such uncertainty, the meta-analysis examined “235 mortality risk estimates from 42 studies” and found that “unemployment is associated with a 63% higher risk of mortality in studies controlling for covariates.”

Regardless of whether job losses from Covid-19 lockdowns are brief or sustained, the study found that the death correlation “is significant in both the short and long term,” lending “some support to the hypothesis and previous findings that both the stress and the negative lifestyle effects associated with the onset of unemployment tend to persist even after a person has regained a job.”

Also of relevance to current job losses, the study indicates that added unemployment benefits, like those recently passed into federal law, are unlikely to mitigate the deadliness of job losses. This is because the meta-analysis found that the associations between unemployment and death in Scandinavia and the U.S. are not significantly different, even though the Scandinavian nations offer more generous welfare benefits. Thus, the authors conclude that “these national-level policy differences may not have much of an effect on the rate of mortality following unemployment.”

A broad range of other studies have similar implications for anxiety-related deaths wrought by reactions to Covid-19:

  • A 1991 study published by the New England Journal of Medicine found that “psychological stress was associated in a dose-response manner with an increased risk of acute infectious respiratory illness.” A dose-response relationship, as explained by epidemiologist Sydney Pettygrove, “is one in which increasing levels of exposure are associated with either an increasing or a decreasing risk of the outcome.” She notes that when this pattern occurs, it “is considered strong evidence for a causal relationship between the exposure and the outcome.”
  • A 2004 paper in The Lancet documents that “stress and depression result in an impairment of the immune response and might promote the initiation and progression of some types of cancer….” The paper details many human and animal studies germane to the Covid-19 lockdowns, such as those dealing with a “lack of social interactions” that cause certain cancers to metastasize.
  • A 2005 paper in the Journal of Experimental Medicine finds that “psychological conditions, including stress” trigger a “sophisticated molecular mechanism” that increases “the likelihood of infections, autoimmunity, or cancer.”
  • A 2012 meta-analysis in the British Medical Journal finds “a dose-response association between psychological distress and mortality from all causes, cardiovascular disease, and external causes across the full range of distress, even in people who would not usually come to the attention of mental health services.” Furthermore, “these associations remained after adjustment for age, sex, current occupational social class, body mass index, systolic blood pressure, physical activity, smoking, alcohol consumption, and diabetes.” People with the lowest levels of psychological distress in this study had a 20% greater risk of death, and those with the highest levels had a 94% greater risk.
  • A 2012 paper in the Journal of the American Medical Association Psychiatry analyzesthe death rates of more than a million young males in Sweden who underwent a government-mandated military draft physical that “included a structured interview by a psychologist” during 1969 to 1994. This study is particularly relevant to the effects of the current Covid-19 anxiety because it involves nearly all the healthy young men of a nation and excludes those with “severe” mental or physical disorders because they were excused from the exam. The study finds:
    • Young men who were diagnosed with neurotic and adjustment disorders were 76% more likely to die in the average follow-up period of 22.6 years. A neurotic disorder is a problem dealing with anxiety, and an adjustment disorder—which is now called “stress response syndrome”—is “a short-term condition that occurs when a person has great difficulty coping with, or adjusting to, a particular source of stress, such as a major life change, loss, or event.” These are apt descriptions of the tens of millions of Americans who report that reactions to Covid-19 are seriously harming their mental health.
    • Premature deaths associated with mental illness “are not primarily due to suicide or accidents, although risk of both is increased, but to a range of natural causes, particularly cardiovascular disease.” This suggests that the most pervasive harm from lockdowns does not manifest in obvious ways like suicides and overdoses.
  • A 2015 paper in the American Journal of Epidemiology examines the death rates of all “Danes who received a diagnosis of reaction to severe stress or adjustment disorders” between 1995 and 2011. The study found that they “had mortality rates during the study period that were 2.2 times higher than” those of the general population.
  • A 2015 meta-analysis in the Journal of the American Medical Association Psychiatryprovides a systematic review of 148 studies of death and mental disorders with follow-up times ranging from one to 52 years, with a median of 10 years. It finds that the overall risk of death among people with mental disorders is 2.2 times that of the general population. Breaking these results out by condition, the mortality increases were:
    • 43% for people with anxiety.
    • 71% for people with depression
    • 110% for people with mood disorders.
    • 150% for people with psychoses.

Among all of the results above, the smallest risk of increased death is 20% in the 2012 meta-analysis. This has a margin of error from 13% to 27% with 95% confidence. The lower limit of 13% translates to an average of about 1.3 years of lost life per person.

Corroborating that figure, 22 of the studies in the 2015 meta-analysis included estimates for the average years of life lost by each person with a mental disorder. These “ranged from 1.4 to 32 years, with a median of 10.1 years.” None of these studies were for anxiety, but the low-end figure of 1.4 years provides additional evidence that those who suffer serious mental repercussions from responses to Covid-19 will lose an average of more than a year of life.

Therefore, the figure of 1.3 years of lost life is a bare minimum and forms the second key basis of this study. This varies widely by person and could be:

  • 50 years or more for young people who commit suicide.
  • one month or less for elderly persons who have cardiac events triggered by fear or loneliness.
  • two years for the middle-aged people whose blood pressure begins spiking earlier in life than it would have in the absence of Covid-19-related stress.

Lives Saved By Lockdowns

In the science of epidemiology, or the study of human disease, ethical and practical constraints often make it impossible to conduct experiments that can definitively establish the effects of medical interventions. This applies to determining how many lives might be saved by government lockdowns during the Covid-19 pandemic.

One can easily compare Covid-19 death rates—or the number of people who die from the disease divided by the total population where they live—in nations and states that took different actions. However, many other factors can affect these death rates, such as wealth, age, population density, government, hospital protocols, culture, genetics, diet, and exercise. For example, New York State enacted one of the strictest lockdowns in the U.S. but has 22 times the death rate of Florida, which had one of the mildest lockdowns.

Given such considerations, the highest possible figure for lives saved by lockdowns can be estimated by comparing the nations of Scandinavia. This is because these countries are culturally, economically, and genetically similar to one another but have enacted very dissimilar policies to deal with Covid-19. In the words of Paul W. Franks, professor of genetic epidemiology at Lund University in Sweden:

The Swedish approach to Covid-19 could not be more different from its neighbors, placing much of the responsibility for delaying the spread of the virus and protecting the vulnerable in the hands of the public. It’s now April and, albeit with some restrictions, Swedish bars, restaurants and schools remain open. …

This all contrasts the far more assertive physical restrictions imposed in the culturally similar neighboring countries. Across the borders in Denmark, Norway and Finland, schools closed weeks ago and movement has been severely restricted.

Sweden has taken certain measures to slow the spread of Covid-19, like limiting public gatherings to 50 people. However, these can hardly be characterized as “lockdowns,” and Swedish stores, restaurants, schools, beaches, and other public places are open and bustling.

Stockholm, Sweden, April 1, 2020 (TT News Agency/Fredrik Sandberg via Reuters)

Comparing the current death rates of Scandinavian nations yields a maximum figure for the lives saved by lockdowns because Sweden’s plan involves more deaths in the early stages of the pandemic but less later on. As detailed by Professor Franks, simulations show that the overall death rate is “expected to be similar across countries,” but “unlike its peers, Sweden is likely to take the hit sooner and over a shorter period, with the majority of deaths occurring within weeks, rather than months.”

As of April 27th, the death rate in Sweden is 32% higher than in the United States, 3.1 times that of Denmark, 5.8 times that of Norway, and 6.4 times that of Finland:


Applying the Sweden/Finland death rate ratio of 6.4 to the United States, the maximum number of Americans who could have been saved by past and current lockdowns is 616,590. This figure is based on the most pessimistic projection of 114,228 deaths in the U.S. through August 4th by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington. It is calculated by multiplying 114,228 deaths by 6.4 and then subtracting the 114,228 deaths that occur regardless of the lockdown.

The figure of 616,590 lives saved by lockdowns in the U.S. is at the extreme high-end of plausibility because it:

  • uses the worst-case projection for the U.S. death toll.
  • compares the death rate in Sweden to Finland, even though Denmark—which has also implemented a strict lockdown—has twice the death rate of Finland.
  • assumes that Sweden’s death rate doesn’t decline relative to its neighbors over time regardless of Sweden’s strategy to build herd immunity consistent with the following facts:
    • The Imperial College—whose cataclysmic projections of Covid-19 deaths have been a driving force behind government lockdowns—has acknowledged that “the more successful a strategy is at temporary suppression, the larger the later epidemic is predicted to be in the absence of vaccination, due to lesser build-up of herd immunity.”
    • A 2012 paper in the journal PLoS One titled “Immunity in Society” notes that “when a sufficiently high proportion of individuals within a population becomes immune (either through prior exposure or through mass vaccination), community or ‘herd’ immunity emerges, whereby individuals that are poorly immunized are protected by the collective ‘immune firewall’ provided by immunized neighbors.”
    • Large portions of people are highly resistant to Covid-19 and experience no symptoms when they catch it, later making them firewalls against the spread of the disease. For example, the New England Journal of Medicine reported in mid-April that universal Covid-19 testing of pregnant women at two New York City hospitals found that 88% of the women who tested positive for the disease were asymptomatic.
    • U.S. states with strict lockdowns—like New Jersey and New York—have Covid-19 death rates that are three to five times that of Sweden’s:


Nonetheless, this study uses the highly improbable and optimistic scenario of 616,590 lives saved by lockdowns. This figure forms the third key basis of the study.

Comparing Life Lost and Saved

Combining the first two key figures of this study, anxiety from responses to Covid-19 has impacted 42,873,663 adults and will rob them of an average of 1.3 years of life, thus destroying 55.7 million years of life.

Combining the third key figure of this study with data on Covid-19 deaths, a maximum of 616,590 lives might be saved by the current lockdowns, and the disease robs an average of 12 years of life from each of its victims, which means that the current lockdowns can save no more than 7.4 million years of life.

In other words, the anxiety from reactions to Covid-19—such as business shutdowns, stay-at-home orders, media exaggerations, and legitimate concerns about the virus—will extinguish at least seven times more years of life than can possibly be saved by the lockdowns.

Again, all of these figures minimize deaths from anxiety and maximize lives saved by lockdowns. Under the more moderate scenarios documented above, anxiety will destroy more than 90 times the life saved by lockdowns based on:

  • the mid-March American Psychiatric Association survey that found Covid-19 “is having a serious impact” on the “mental health” of 36% of adults.
  • the 2015 meta-analysis in the Journal of the American Medical Association Psychiatrythat found a 43% average increase in mortality for people with anxiety.
  • the IHME’s midpoint projection of 72,433 Covid-19 deaths through August 4th.
  • the fact that the current death rate of Sweden is 5.1 times the average of the other Scandinavian nations.

Even the figure of 90 times is likely a substantial underestimate of the total life destroyed by reactions to Covid-19 because it doesn’t account for:


Unlike analyses that only compare the number of deaths from Covid-19 to other causes, this study accounts for the years of life lost for each victim. This accords with the CDC’s principlethat “the allocation of health resources must consider not only the number of deaths by cause but also by age.” Thus, the CDC explains that the “years of potential life lost” has “become a mainstay in the evaluation of the impact of injuries on public health.” This doesn’t mean that the lives of young people are more important than that of the elderly, but it recognizes and accounts for the facts that:

  • humans cannot ultimately prevent death; they can only delay it.
  • there is a material difference between a malady that kills a 20 year-old in the prime of her life and one that kills a 90-year-old who would have otherwise died a month later.

A possible argument against this study is that it isn’t proper to compare anxiety to Covid-19 because the effects of anxiety often don’t kill until the distant future, while the deaths from Covid-19 are happening right now. Such logic relegates the harms of mental distress to years away, but the facts are clear that it can kill immediately, make life a nightmare in the present, and produce current and lasting physical ailments that end in early death. More importantly, tallying the life lost in any random unit of time, as opposed to an entire lifetime, is shortsighted and exclusionary.

Other distinctions, such as whether or not the cause of death is contagious, are similarly myopic. The primary issues are prevention and harm, and the difference between them ultimately determines how much life is saved or destroyed.

Summary

One of the most important principles of epidemiology is weighing benefits and harms. A failure to do this can make virtually any medical treatment seem helpful or destructive. In the words of Ronald C. Kessler of the Harvard Medical School and healthcare economist Paul E. Greenberg, “medical interventions are appropriate only if their expected benefits clearly exceed the sum of their direct costs and their expected risks.”

Likewise, a 2020 paper about quarantines published in The Lancet states: “Separation from loved ones, the loss of freedom, uncertainty over disease status, and boredom can, on occasion, create dramatic effects. Suicide has been reported, substantial anger generated, and lawsuits brought following the imposition of quarantine in previous outbreaks. The potential benefits of mandatory mass quarantine need to be weighed carefully against the possible psychological costs.”

Yet, when dealing with Covid-19 and other issues, politicians sometimes ignore this essential principle of sound decision-making. For a prime example, NJ Governor Phil Murphy recently insisted that he must maintain a lockdown or “there will be blood on our hands.” What that statement fails to recognize is that lockdowns also kill people via the mechanisms detailed above.

Likewise, a reporter asked NY Governor Andrew Cuomo about the impacts of his lockdown on people who commit “suicide because they can’t pay their bills” and others who die from the economic repercussions and “mental illness.” In reply, Cuomo stated five times that these fatal outcomes are “not death.” He also asked the rhetorical question, “How can the cure be worse than the illness if the illness is potential death?” The obvious answer is that the cure is also potential death.

In situations like pandemics and many other realms of public policy, life-and-death tradeoffs are inevitable, and failing to recognize this can cause tremendous harm. This is the case with Covid-19, where a broad array of scientific facts overwhelmingly shows that anxiety from reactions to the disease will destroy at least seven times more years of life than can possibly be saved by lockdowns. Moreover, the total loss of life from all societal responses to this disease is likely to be more than 90 times greater than prevented by the lockdowns.

A final note for readers who are experiencing anxiety: Healthcare professionals can reduce these effects, so seek help.

COVID-19 - the BIGGEST HOAX IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD...

The Coronavirus / covid-19 pandemic is the biggest hoax in the history of the world. Billions of people across the globe have been duped and allowed themselves to be subjected to tyranny because of a spook.

As you will learn when you follow the links below, the figures for cases and deaths caused by Covid-19 are largely fraudulent and grossly inflated - the product of distortion, exaggeration and statistical trickery, with connivance by the elite controlled media to present them as established fact. You might complain “Oh, but I’ve seen the videos of people gasping for breath on ventilators and of coffins piled high”. But how do you know those are genuine? Remember when they staged the gas attacks by Syrian leader Bashar Assad on his own people which were later found to be the work of Western actors and pulling down the big statue of Saddam in Iraq where a relative handful of paid locals were made to look like a crowd? Even if they are genuine, and they do look it, how do you know that the numbers of people in such a condition are not grossly exaggerated, or even that the people on ventilators are not being treated for another condition? With respect to the presentation of what is going on, Chris Martenson and Peak Prosperity, who are well into this and making a big thing of it, are regarded with considerable suspicion.

Ever since this started ordinary people have been subjected to a non-stop wall-to-wall 24-hour media blitz, highlighting the horror of dying with Covid-19 and presenting graphs showing apocalyptic infection and death rates if drastic action is not taken – and it has worked, the people have taken the bait, hook line and sinker, and are now cowering in their homes, dutifully following every instruction of their Masters, except when they go out onto their balconies to inflict themselves on their neighbors by singing or whatever.

The power of propaganda, skillfully used, cannot be overstated. More than 100 years later most people still believe that Germany started the 1st World War. No, it didn’t, it was started by the British Empire which saw the rising power of Germany as a threat to its hegemony, and resolved to physically destroy it, and then worked to create a situation where war was inevitable. Likewise, when Hitler invaded Poland to rescue a German enclave which was being brutally oppressed, it was used as an excuse by Britain to declare war on Germany, on the spurious grounds that “Britain had a treaty with Poland”. Much more recently we had the events of 11th September 2001, which enabled the elites to eviscerate the US Constitution with their pre-written Patriot Acts, that paved the way for the coming tyranny, and also to pursue their geo-political agenda in the Mid-East. As Hitler is reputed to have said, “The bigger the lie, the more readily it will be believed” and thus we had the ludicrous explanation that this attack was masterminded by a fanatic in a cave in Afghanistan. In reality it was a meticulously planned “false flag” operation, that was incredibly efficient in terms of the “sacrifice” required to achieve the objectives, since it only required the destruction of 2 large buildings (3 with building 7) and the unfortunate people who happened to be in them at the time, which is hardly on a par with the obliteration of the entire cities of Dresden or Hiroshima. The credulous public, like frightened rabbits, unquestionably believed the official explanation, not asking simple questions like “Why would a building that is constructed to withstand the impact of aircraft collapse like a house of cards”, or “Why did building 7, which was away from the action, suddenly go down like a dynamited power station hours later?” The explanation, to anyone with a functioning brain, is that the buildings were all brought down by sequenced controlled demolitions, with the aircraft flying into them being remotely controlled, and building 7 was destroyed because it was the command center for the operation. Afterwards, the whole area was sealed off and no independent forensic examination permitted because it would have found evidence of the explosives used.

The events of 9/11 were the first punch of a one – two knockout blow, with this Covid-19 pandemic being the second decisive impact, which finally sweeps away the remaining personal freedoms of the masses, whose lives will from now on be tightly and closely monitored, aided by modern technology, as their Masters assume total control. But why now? – why was the bioweapon released now? Let’s address the timing. The background to this was that US elites (they are transnational but centered primarily in the US, and Britain) were becoming alarmed at the fast growing power of China, which was threatening their hegemony both economically and militarily. They knew they had to act fast, while they still had the power of the having the global reserve currency. So their first move was to instigate a Trade War to take the wind out of the sails of the Chinese economy. Then, late last year, the global financial system was teetering on the verge of collapse due to debt levels reaching critical extremes, which lead to emergency intervention in the repo markets, so they needed an immediate scapegoat for the collapse and decided to immediately play their Trump card, their Master Stroke and unleash the virus. Beyond the immediate “benefit” of fatally wounding the Chinese economy, which was a Prime Objective, the planned blowback to the rest of the world was also to their advantage, because it triggered a market crash that could now be blamed on the virus, giving them the perfect excuse to bail out elite institutions like the banks and big corporations at public expense, and at the same time the orchestrated virus scare enabled them to advance their plans to implement a global police state at lightning speed. One of the most remarkable achievements of this Master Plan was the neutralization of millions of potentially powerful US gun owners. It works like this – if you can control their minds you can control their guns – so what they did was made the gun owners as afraid of the “spook” as everyone else, and that, in addition to the application of peer group pressure by their friends and neighbors around them, who were scared witless by the virus, has effectively served to disarm them, so that they are cowering in their homes like everyone else, apart from the occasional trip to the local State capital to pose and swagger around with their hardware.

Releasing the virus in Wuhan, the industrial heartland of China was a carefully calculated and very crafty act. In addition to enabling the elites to instantly “drive a stake through the heart” of the Chinese economy, it also meant that they could pin the blame on China, regardless of whether the virus is decided to have originated in the local animal or fish market or the bio lab located nearby in Wuhan. The purpose is to sully the global reputation of China, and create a reservoir of resentment that can later be tapped and exploited in the event of any later military action against it. This is why Trump referred to it as “The Chinese Virus”, although he stopped using this term when he realized he’d gone too far. Right now they are employing the tactic that “attack is the best form of defense” and making out that China was automatically responsible for the virus because it started there, and making phony claims for compensation for economic damage in order to deflect scrutiny from themselves.


As we have seen, various imperatives have converged at this time to drive these extraordinary developments. With the world economy on the verge of collapse due to impossible extremes of debt, the transnational elites are now “going for broke” to realize their dream of global hegemony – they have set in motion their plans to crush China, implement a global neo-feudal society, with a world government, a single global currency, and a cashless society in which every aspect of citizens lives is controlled and monitored. It will be a two-tier society where ordinary people exist, if permitted to, to serve the purposes of their masters, the elites, who may rightly be termed “neo-feudal overlords”.
Many people are living under the illusion that when this pandemic is contained, life will return to normal. No, it won’t. Iraq was invaded on the basis of a lie, the “weapons of mass destruction” story. After it was invaded and it became apparent to all that there were no weapons of mass destruction, was Iraq uninvaded? – no, it wasn’t – the lie had served its purpose, they were in and they weren’t leaving. Likewise, when the worst of this pandemic blows over and far fewer people are killed by it than originally estimated, life will not return to the way it was before – the extensive new powers gained by the State over its citizens will remain in force, and to maintain and augment this power the virus will be allowed to flare up again cyclically, or new ones will be introduced.

The days of mass travel are over. The airline and tourism industries have been destroyed. Large parts of what survives of these industries will be nationalized largely to serve the purposes of executive travel. This development will greatly improve the quality of life of the elites. They never travelled on public aircraft anyway – not for them the horror of going through airport security and having their stuff rifled through – they go everywhere on private jets where the boarding and customs processes are expedited and comfortable. An indication of their migration to private aircraft in recent years has been the decline in VIP lounges, which used to be rarified sanctuaries of peace and relaxation, but are now full of riff-raff using credit card privileges to get in, so that they now have people sticking their feet on the seats and kids running around screaming etc. With mass travel greatly curtailed, in the future the elites will be able to stroll around the streets of places like Venice without hordes of lower class visitors spoiling it. The catering and restaurant industries will likewise survive in a slimmed down form, catering more to the elites – they will tend to be high class with the staff showing due deference. Ordinary people might be permitted some local cafes, provided that the tables are far enough apart.

In order to understand the elites and their objectives you have to “put yourself in their shoes” and see the world as they see it, which I have done. They grow up living lives of incredible luxury and opulence, and are encouraged by their parents and peers to see themselves as exceptional, and they come to adulthood truly believing that they are superior beings. They regard ordinary lower and middle class people much as you might an ant or a termite, at best as something to be tolerated or used, at worst as a pest to be exterminated. Ordinary people travelling all over and cluttering up places are a nuisance which has to be stopped. They have a natural tendency to accrue as much power and wealth to themselves as they possibly can at the expense of the masses and we just saw this in action with the bailouts for the wealthy in the US while the ordinary folk were thrown out on the street.

As we all know, the world is grossly overpopulated. I have read that the maximum population that can be sustained without causing long-term damage to the planet is about 1.5 billion, which means that with about 8 billion on the planet now, it has an excess of 6.5 billion. Looked at using cold logic – the kind of logic that the elites employ – it means that 6.5 billion need to be disposed of. The question is how to get rid of them. India is perhaps the most extreme example at about 1300 million people on a land area much smaller than China, with the population having exploded fourfold since the end of the 2nd World War from about 300 million at that time. The life support systems of the planet are buckling under the strain and something needs to be done about it. Given the low regard which the elites have for ordinary people, who they regard as a worthless and expendable infestation, it is thought that they have one of two main methods of dealing with it. One is to create a mass starvation event by collapsing the economic system, which may well be what they are doing right now, but the problem with this is that it leads to widespread chaos and destruction, which would actually erode the elites’ power base, since their lives of privilege are built on the backs of others, and if they kill off too many of the “untermensch” they might end up having to work themselves. The other approach is to use compulsory vaccination to mass sterilize vast swathes of the population, either males or females or both, and thus greatly reduce the birth rate, or adopt a more drastic approach and use the vaccinations, which are purportedly to protect against Covid-19 or flu or polio or whatever, to promote early death, perhaps with some kind of timer element built in that finishes people off in say 5 years. This is thought to be an underlying driver for the move towards compulsory vaccinations using the cloak of Covid-19 protection being promoted by the likes of Bill Gates.


Now to substantiate some of the claims made by this article by means of the following linked articles. Take your time working your way through these because they are very important. Once you have read and digested them you will understand exactly what this is all about, unless you are willfully stupid…


To give you a road map of what is going on, we start with The Seven Step Path from Pandemic to Totalitarianism.

Next, we look at what they don’t tell you in Covid-19: What They Don’t Tell You.

And in a similar vein is Global COVID-19 Lockdown – What You’re Not Being Told, Part 2 This is very long and I haven’t read all of it.

Here is an interesting video by Dr Rashid Buttar on the Covid-19 Conspiracy

Don’t Trace Me, Bro is about “Contact Tracing” which involves recruiting the public to engage in surveillance of their fellow citizens behalf of the State.

This astounding Before and after coronavirus video shows how once bustling cities around the world have been reduced to ghost towns. This is a negation of life that is untenable and will quickly lead to ruin. So why are they doing this? They are “testing the waters” to see just how much they can get away with – it is a demonstration of their absolute power over the acquiescent masses. The sheep, who have been happily running from one end of the field to the other for years, are now being herded into the slaughterhouse. This is clearly a trial run for a global lockdown police State – if they can do this once they can do it again and again and make it a permanent state of affairs if they wish, and as mentioned above, they may be bringing the global economy to a dead stop in order to trigger a mass starvation event to clear the world of what they view as excess population.

In Our Glorious, Orwellian Reopening Donald Jeffries rightly describes this whole thing as a “plandemic, the greatest psyop of all time”, and makes the priceless and true observation that “the majority of Americans are like a collective battered wife”.

In Never Again! Chuck Baldwin makes the point that the lockdowns and shutdowns are actually illegal.

In The Most Tragic Case of Governmental, Medical, and Media Malpractice in the History of the World Douglas MacKinnon makes it clear that the mainstream media are complicit in gross exaggeration of the deaths and illness attributable to Covid-19.

And lastly an interesting slant on what has helped prompt the authorities to lockdown society in We Have Become “Karen“ Nation.


So what now? Let’s play “devil’s advocate” for a minute and put ourselves in the shoes of the elites. Everything is going to plan so far, but what next? Confining the population to their dwellings for weeks and even months on end after a lifetime of relative freedom is obviously creating a “pressure cooker” effect that could soon lead to a social explosion. So, how to relieve the pressure just enough to prevent this? Simple, relax the restrictions for a while, let the virus flare up again and then say “Look – told you so, out of the kindness of our hearts we relaxed the restrictions and let you partially return to normal life, but the virus has flared up again putting you all in mortal danger – so back you go and stay there!”

I have to “take my hat off” to the elites. While their Master Plan is monumentally cruel, cynical and ruthless as it is rapidly destroying the lives and aspirations of billions of people across the globe, it is also audacious and ingenious – 9/11 had nothing on this – this takes it to the next level. At a stroke they have destroyed the Chinese economy, bailed out their own corporations and interests at public expense, and set the wheels in motion to create a global lockdown police state and economically a global takeover via the dollarization of the world, so that they will have more power than anyone could ever dream of, at least on this one planet – it’s brilliant.

With regards to the global economic takeover what has happened is that the Fed has come to realize – and maybe it had this planned all along – that it can take advantage of the dollar being the global reserve currency to literally buy the world. When it creates money it incurs no obligation to itself, no downside – the cost is borne by the world at large whose living standard is reduced as their wealth is transferred to the elites who simply print money and give it to themselves, enabling them to live on the backs of everyone else. So the trick is to encourage everyone and everything to get into as much debt as possible. Then you simply pull the plug on the economy, in this case using the virus crisis as a catalyst. All the debtors are instantly insolvent and facing ruin, at which point the Fed (and other Central Banks which they increasingly control) come riding to the rescue, and all the debtors gratefully accept the banks’ assistance in their hour of need, and then face the rest of their lives in debt servitude. In the US, and many other nations, a big reason for the prolonged lockdowns is to destroy small businesses whose assets and manpower can then be mopped up by predatory larger corporations owned by the elites – if they are permitted to survive it will be as debt slaves. The reason for the current paradox where the economy is dead as a result of the lockdowns but the stockmarket is gleefully rising again is simple – the market crash has achieved its purpose which was to enable the big elite owned corporations to get bailed out at public expense, now that this has happened, the market has a green light to advance again, driven ever higher by limitless Fed money creation that is piped through the Wall St banks into the market. In a free market the stockmarket would have tipped into a debt-purging 2nd downwave, but this is now a “command economy” like the old Soviet Union where the Fed decides where the market goes. As for the little guy, he can go hang – he has to stop at home while his small business goes bankrupt. All he has to look forward to is living on meager handouts if he’s lucky, or working for a larger elite controlled corporation later, on their terms.
The global collapse into widespread depression and poverty that is now beginning and set to accelerate at a rapid rate has been predicted for years by people like Egon von Greyerz as the inevitable consequence of a system of unsound money, fiat money, that has enabled Central Banks to play God and debase currencies to the extent that they eventually become worthless, consumed by the fires of hyperinflation, which is what is about to happen. In addition, the fact that the dollar is the global reserve currency has put the Federal Reserve in position to make its current bid to take over the world in an act of economic colonialism by creating vast amounts of money and buying everything in sight and flooding other Central Banks with dollars with the intention of dollarizing the world. My understanding of this comes from listening to Greg Mannarino’s video blogs, which are generally concise and to the point, and well worth listening to even if he is sometimes lewd. Greg has produced some classic videos over the past couple of months which are worth going back and listening to if you have the time, in order to understand what is going on, in particular, why the stockmarket has been strong as the economy implodes. Here is a good one TOTAL ECONOMIC COLLAPSE WITH NO END IN SIGHT from the 30th. These videos are laced with frequent advertising breaks which are thought to be an attempt to put you off watching them. Greg knows that he will be deplatformed at some point but doesn’t care.

Some people are pinning their hopes for improvement on the enigmatic “Q” as he is known, a mysterious figure who is supposed to be “in the know” and on “Trump and the Patriots” and they spend hours every week listening to something called the X22 Report. As far as I can tell this X22 report is a “psyop” – a “lightning rod” which functions to give discontented people the hope of change, so that they don’t actually do anything. They believe that Trump is going to have all the bad people rounded up and arrested and put on trial. They are tragically deluded and wasting their time listening to this stuff.

The elites plan to eliminate the remaining free speech on the internet, which enables you to find out what is really going on if you are sufficiently determined. In the future, as the Matrix closes in on the population, this will no longer be tolerated. Dissenting voices will be silenced by being deplatformed, marginalized, economically cut off, pushed down the list of search rankings etc. and if that doesn’t work, physically eliminated. This process is already well underway. It started with Alex Jones of Infowars who was deplatformed, and has now spread to Facebook and Twitter who vanish people who say things that are “incorrect”. We have already seen what happens to people like Edward Snowden and Julian Assange who expose what the State is up to, who the public at large abandoned to their fate. They are intended to set an example of what will happen to others who think of trying it.

On a lighter note can just imagine the elites at a future Davos summit or Bilderberg meeting joyfully reminiscing about the glorious success of their Covid-19 hoax and the New World Order it has helped to usher in, as they quaff champagne and down quail’s eggs in a side room…


“First we got them all to wear face masks” – a murmur of laughter sprinkled with chuckles spreads across the room.

“Then we made them stand at least 2 meters apart!” more widespread laughter now and some clapping. An inebriated fellow off at the side roars with laughter.

“And finally we got them to stop at home for 3 months without going out!!” At this the assembled throng bursts into uproarious mirth, with some dropping to the floor crying with laughter for a long time. At length, as the merriment starts to subside, someone at the back of the room pipes up “and now we’re going to get them to snitch on each other and vaccinate ‘em and chip ‘em like dogs!!” at which many of the party can scarcely take any more, laughing so much that their sides are aching.


Unfortunately, for the other 99% of the population, what is happening to our world is no laughing matter.

If you believe I am a “kook” after reading this, then you ought to read this article, which is a late addition, entitled The Dubious COVID Models, The Tests, And Now The Consequences after which it ought to be clear to all but the most imbecilic amongst you that we have all been had by THE BIGGEST CON JOB IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD perpetrated to enhance the power and control of a select few and to increase their enormous fortunes still further, a current example being the Fed pumping the stockmarket back up at public expense while the masses lose their jobs and can go starve. Billions of people around the world who have had their lives ruined for nothing but a hoax might as well have a sign hanging from their necks saying “JACKASS!” but it doesn’t have to stay that way - SO SPREAD THE WORD!

End.

Biggest hoax in the world is the fed and has been going on for over 100 years.
Actually older than that as Andrew Jackson eliminated the Second Bank of the United States.
The First Bank of the United States had a 20 year charter but was defeated by Congress upon renewal. History shows it had its problems too. Shares started at $25.00 ea., rose to $300.00, and collapsed to $150.00 in a matter of days.
Just one of its many issues / complaints.

Coronavirus found in semen, but unknown whether it can be sexually transmitted
NATION/WORLD
by: Associated Press

Posted: May 7, 2020 / 04:11 PM PDT / Updated: May 7, 2020 / 04:11 PM PDT

An undated microscopic image of the COVID-19 virus, provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


The virus that causes COVID-19 can be found in semen, Chinese researchers report in a small study that doesn’t address whether sexual transmission is possible.

Doctors detected the virus in semen from six of 38 men hospitalized with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19. Four were still very sick with the disease while two were recovering.

The report from Shangqiu Municipal Hospital in China was published Thursday in JAMA Network Open.

There was no long-term follow-up so it is not known how long the virus may remain in semen or if men can spread it to their partners during sex.

The results contrast with a study of 34 Chinese men with COVID-19 published last month in the journal Fertility and Sterility. U.S. and Chinese researchers found no evidence of virus in semen tested between eight days and almost three months after diagnosis.

Dr. John Hotaling of the University of Utah, co-author of that report, said the new study involved much sicker men, most with active disease.
Authorities believe the coronavirus mainly spreads from droplets produced when infected people cough, which are inhaled by people nearby.

Some studies have reported finding the virus in blood, feces and tears or other fluid from COVID-19 patients with inflammation in their eyes.

Evidence suggesting that other infectious viruses including Zika and Ebola may be sexually transmitted has prompted questions about the coronavirus.

Hotaling said it’s an important public health concern but that more research is needed to provide a definitive answer.

The American Society for Reproductive Medicine said the new study shouldn’t be cause for alarm. To be safe, though, “it may be wise to avoid sexual contact with men until they are 14 days without symptoms,” Dr. Peter Schlegel, the group’s immediate past president, said in a statement.

I have become a firm believer the more pharmaceuticals the medical profession and .gov can get people on the weaker their immune system becomes. About a year ago I lost a friend due to sepsis. He had medical issues but he would let doctors prescribe or due treatments even when he was told they were on an experimental trial basis.
Everything offered he was told showed promising signs for his ailments. He even let cardiologist at UK drill micro holes through his heart in an attempt to make it work stronger.
I'll stick to Vitamins, Minerals in high doses, one 325 ASA daily ( been doing that off and on for 35 yrs. Now since Heart doc sez "stay on it daily" I'll stay on in daily).
I do take one pill for diabetes, no shots.
And since it was discovered I had had a heart attack with no symptoms I take a pill for that until my next visit to the cardiologist. Whenever the next stress test is if it come back as no changes I'll stop that pill too.
I was fine walking my Tight Wire of Death BEFORE I knew I had a heart attack, I feel fine now, if no improvement is seen there is no reason to keep taking it.
Let my body do what it is gonna do. The less Pharma is involved the better, AFAIC.

China asked the WHO to cover up coronavirus outbreak: German intelligence service
Delay cost world 4 to 6 weeks: BND
337260

By Matthew Strong, Taiwan News, Staff Writer
2020/05/09 19:53

China's Xi Jinping (right) with WHO chief Tedros (AP photo)

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Chinese leader Xi Jinping (習近平) asked World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to suppress news about the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the German intelligence agency BND found, according to a report by German magazine Der Spiegel.

During a conversation on Jan. 21, Xi reportedly asked Tedros not to announce that the virus could be transmitted between humans and to delay any declaration of a coronavirus pandemic.

It took until the end of January before the WHO declared that the coronavirus outbreak needed to receive international attention. Because of China’s delay, the world wasted four to six weeks it could have used better to counter the virus from spreading, the BND concluded.

Germany’s Robert Koch Institute also said that China failed to reveal all relevant information at the outset of the epidemic, leading it to turn to the BND for advice, according to a report in the Sueddeutsche Zeitung quoted by CNA.

In a response to the German media reports, Chinese diplomats said the opposite was true, arguing that the communist country’s handling of the virus saved time that was then wasted by other governments.

- - Polly says BOOM - -

Polly found this fellow Hu goes by the name Victor J. Dzau

Polly has some " interesting " tid bits about Dzau in her recently released Video update

>>>>>
The Global Health Mafia Protection Racket

Two links, youtube and bitchute

https://www. youtube .com/watch?v=1Z5VYqJqrtI

https://www. bitchute .com/video/1Z5VYqJqrtI/

seems this fellow has a link to Chapel Hill and he seems to know alot about AngioTensin

according to the wiki page about him he was Born with the Surname " born 曹 " which is " Cáo " .

see " Cáo " at " Berkshire Dictionary of Chinese Biography " which shows " Cáo 曹 "

so there is a fairly good chance that a Sogdian has been found, particularly in light of the Chapel Hill DOT

BOOM indeed, AnOther Sogdian to stir into the Bat Soup .

the name is also rendered " Ts’ao 曹 ( from the region Kabudhan - north of the Zerafshan River - ) "

Chock full

Facts about Covid-19

Overview
  1. According to data from the best-studied countries and regions, the lethality of Covid19 is on average about 0.2%, which is in the range of a severe influenza (flu) and about twenty times lower than originally assumed by the WHO.
  2. Even in the 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.
  3. Up to 80% of all test-positive persons remain symptom-free. Even among 70-79 year olds, about 60% remain symptom-free. Over 95% of all persons show mild symptoms at most.
  4. Up to one third of all persons already have a certain background immunity to Covid19 due to contact with previous coronaviruses (i.e. common cold viruses).
  5. The median or average age of the deceased in most countries (including Italy) is over 80 years and only about 1% of the deceased had no serious preconditions. The age and risk profile of deaths thus essentially corresponds to normal mortality.
  6. In most Western countries, 50 to 70% 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 Covid19 or from extreme stress, fear and loneliness.
  7. Up to 50% of all additional deaths may have been caused not by Covid19, 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.
  8. Even in so-called “Covid19 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.
  9. Many media reports of young and healthy people dying from Covid19 turned out to be false: many of these young people either did not die from Covid19, they had already been seriously ill (e.g. from undiagnosed leukaemia), or they were in fact 109 instead of 9 years old.
  10. The normal overall mortality per day is about 8000 people in the US, about 2600 in Germany and about 1800 in Italy. Influenza mortality per season is up to 80,000 in the US and up to 25,000 in Germany and Italy. In several countries Covid19 deaths remained below strong flu seasons.
  11. Regional increases in mortality may be influenced by additional risk factors such as high levels of air pollution and microbial contamination, as well as a collapse in the care for the elderly and sick due to infections, mass panic and lockdown. Special 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. In addition, up to 15% of doctors and health 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 positive 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 curfews and contact bans, such as Japan, South Korea or Sweden, have not experienced a more negative course of events than other countries. Sweden was even praised by the WHO and now benefits from higher immunity compared to lockdown countries.
  15. The fear of a shortage of ventilators was unjustified. According to lung specialists, the invasive ventilation (intubation) of Covid19 patients, which is partly done out of fear of spreading the virus, is in fact often counterproductive and damaging to the lungs.
  16. Contrary to original assumptions, various studies have shown that there is no evidence of the virus spreading through aerosols (i.e. particles floating in the air) or through smear infections (e.g. on door handles, smartphones or at the hairdresser).
  17. There is also no scientific evidence for the effectiveness of face masks in healthy or asymptomatic individuals. On the contrary, experts warn that such masks 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 Covid19 peak and in some cases had to send staff home. Numerous operations and therapies were cancelled, including some organ transplants and cancer screenings.
  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 to other 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 immunisation of the general population and protection of risk groups. The risks for children are virtually zero and closing schools was never medically warranted.
  22. Several medical experts described vaccines against coronaviruses as unnecessary or even dangerous. Indeed, the vaccine against the so-called swine flu of 2009, for example, led to sometimes severe neurological damage and lawsuits in the millions.
  23. The number of people suffering from unemployment, psychological problems and domestic violence as a result of the measures has skyrocketed worldwide. Several experts believe that the measures may claim more lives than the virus itself. According to the UN millions of people around the world may fall into absolute poverty and famine.
  24. NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden warned that the “corona crisis” will be used for the massive and permanent expansion of global surveillance. The renowned virologist Pablo Goldschmidt spoke of a “global media terror” and “totalitarian measures“. Leading British virologist professor John Oxford spoke of a “media epidemic”.
  25. More than 500 scientists have warned against an “unprecedented surveillance of society” through problematic apps for “contact tracing”. In some countries, such “contact tracing” is already carried out directly by the secret service. In several parts of the world, the population is already being monitored by drones and facing serious police overreach.

Double Hoax – When, exactly, is the Covid-19 “Second Wave” going to start?
The So-Called “First Wave” Was a “Created Crisis…” With NO substance, designed, and activated, to shut down America, and Western Civilization…

We have been hearing, over the last few weeks, how a medical emergency has “necessitated” the quasi-abolition of human rights in order to prevent a plague…

The whole thing was made up – and that fact is coming to light worldwide.
Harsh Retaliation is in the air…

From Europe
– Opinion By Karma Singh

We have been told that this “plague” would be caused by the spread of a mysterious “virus” which has changed its name twice this year already and is now called “Sars-Cov-2”.

It is one of more than a thousand known Corona type “viruses”, so called because they have crown-like protuberances. Nothing further is known about this micro-protein particle.

Let me repeat that, just to make it clear:-

NOTHING WHATSOEVER IS KNOWN ABOUT THIS MICRO-PROTEIN OTHER THAN THAT IT HAS CROWN-LIKE PROTUBERANCES!
Nothing is known of its origin.
Nothing is known of its life-cycle or even that it has such a cycle. Nothing is known of its purpose. Nothing is known of its function. Nothing is known of its effects.

All that is known is that it is one of many, many micro-proteins which have “crown-like” protuberances.

It is not even certain that it is unique, i.e. that “Sars-Cov-2” can definitely be identified separately from all other corona “viruses”.

The so-called “COVOD-19” test is, therefore, unspecific and will register a positive for a wide range of protein particles having crown-like protuberances.

This was most ably demonstrated a few days ago by the president of Tanzania, the largest country in East Africa, when he had samples taken from a wide variety of animals, birds, fruits, and trees, put false human names upon them and had them sent to the WHO laboratory for COVID-19 testing.

A large proportion, almost half of them, came back “positive” including the one taken from a paw-paw fruit.. News sources say that the Tanzanian president had the head of the WHO laboratory arrested and replaced.

You need to watch the video below.



Had they all registered positive then one might assume contamination in the manufacturing process as happened in England some weeks ago.

Mixed positive and negative indicates most strongly that we are dealing here with a harmless protein particle which is very wide-spread across a wide variety of animal, bird and plant species.

Nonetheless, the presence of these very common particles has been used to strip us all of our rights and to cause economic mayhem. When we look at the figures from the German government office of statistics we see no unusual death rates. In fact the death rates for 2020 are mostly slightly below average and much lower than in 2018.

Other sources, such as Dr. Erickson in California, clearly show that there is NO PANDEMIC in existence.

Given that the corona “viruses” have been known for more than 60 years and are known to be harmless,
that on the 19th March the British National Health service downgraded Covid-19 from “serious” to “harmless” and that the tests are conclusively shown to be unspecific, one question needs to be asked:-

Where is the “First Wave?”
Before a second wave can take place there must be one before it. Where is it?

We have been told that mass-deaths have been avoided by quarantining the healthy and bankrupting many small and medium businesses but where is the evidence?

Simply calling a proportion of the typical annual ‘flu deaths Covid-19 is no evidence that such an illness exists. Applying a test which will give a positive for any of the thousand and more known corona-type proteins is no evidence for the existence of Sars-Cov-2.

We are now told that “relaxing” the restrictions will, inevitably lead to a second wave. But where, please, is the first one????
The only visible evidence of a widespread health problem is the wearing of face masks which begin to cause lung damage after only 30 minutes and are completely incapable of filtering out anything so small as a putative “virus”.

Masks also cause psychological damage by preventing normal, healthy human interactions. This is the only evidence of something which could cause large numbers of people to become either physically or mentally sick. The quicker this practice is stopped, the less the likelihood of any widespread health problems.

Abstract
Background
Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine have been found to be efficient on SARS-CoV-2, and reported to be efficient in Chinese COV-19 patients. We evaluate the role of hydroxychloroquine on respiratory viral loads.

Patients and methods
French Confirmed COVID-19 patients were included in a single arm protocol from early March to March 16th, to receive 600mg of hydroxychloroquine daily and their viral load in nasopharyngeal swabs was tested daily in a hospital setting. Depending on their clinical presentation, azithromycin was added to the treatment. Untreated patients from another center and cases refusing the protocol were included as negative controls. Presence and absence of virus at Day6-post inclusion was considered the end point.

Results
Six patients were asymptomatic, 22 had upper respiratory tract infection symptoms and eight had lower respiratory tract infection symptoms.
Twenty cases were treated in this study and showed a significant reduction of the viral carriage at D6-post inclusion compared to controls, and much lower average carrying duration than reported of untreated patients in the literature. Azithromycin added to hydroxychloroquine was significantly more efficient for virus elimination.

Conclusion
Despite its small sample size our survey shows that hydroxychloroquine treatment is significantly associated with viral load reduction/disappearance in COVID-19 patients and its effect is reinforced by azithromycin.

1. Introduction
In late December 2019, an outbreak of an emerging disease (COVID-19) due to a novel coronavirus (named SARS-CoV-2 latter) started in Wuhan, China and rapidly spread in China and outside [1,2]. The WHO declared the epidemic of COVID-19 as a pandemic on March 12th 2020 [3]. According to a recent Chinese stud, about 80% of patients present with mild disease and the overall case-fatality rate is about 2.3% but reaches 8.0% in patients aged 70 to 79 years and 14.8% in those aged ≥80 years [4]. However, there is probably an important number of asymptomatic carriers in the population, and thus the mortality rate is probably overestimated. France is now facing the COVID-19 wave with more than 4500 cases, as of March 14th 2020 [5]. Thus, there is an urgent need for an effective treatment to treat symptomatic patients but also to decrease the duration of virus carriage in order to limit the transmission in the community. Among candidate drugs to treat COVID-19, repositioning of old drugs for use as antiviral treatment is an interesting strategy because knowledge on safety profile, side effects, posology and drug interactions are well known [6,7].

A recent paper reported an inhibitor effect of remdesivir (a new antiviral drug) and chloroquine (an old antimalarial drug) on the growth of SARS-CoV-2 in vitro, [8] and an early clinical trial conducted in COVID-19 Chinese patients, showed that chloroquine had a significant effect, both in terms of clinical outcome and viral clearance, when comparing to controls groups [9,10]. Chinese experts recommend that patients diagnosed as mild, moderate and severe cases of COVID-19 pneumonia and without contraindications to chloroquine, be treated with 500 mg chloroquine twice a day for ten days [11].

Hydroxychloroquine (an analogue of chloroquine) has been demonstrated to have an anti-SARS-CoV activity in vitro [12]. Hydroxychloroquine clinical safety profile is better than that of chloroquine (during long-term use) and allows higher daily dose [13] and has fewer concerns about drug-drug interactions [14]. Our team has a very comprehensive experience in successfully treating patients with chronic diseases due to intracellular bacteria (Q fever due to Coxiella burnetii and Whipple's disease due to Tropheryma whipplei) with long-term hydroxychloroquine treatment (600 mg/day for 12 to 18 months) since more than 20 years. [15,16] We therefore started to conduct a clinical trial aiming at assessing the effect of hydroxychloroquine on SARS-CoV-2-infected patients after approval by the French Ministry of Health. In this report we describe our early results, focusing on virological data in patients receiving hydroxychloroquine as compared to a control group.

2.1. Setting
This ongoing study is coordinated by The Méditerranée Infection University Hospital Institute in Marseille. Patients who were proposed a treatment with hydroxychloroquine were recruited and managed in Marseille centre. Controls without hydroxychloroquine treatment were recruited in Marseille, Nice, Avignon and Briançon centers, all located in South France.

There are other studies too, yet the media is still proclaiming HCQ as "dangerous"....makes you wonder.

Well duh, that's because it is dangerous.
.....to big pharma's desire to financially rape it's "customers". The msm helps to promote their interests. The last thing they want is a cheap off the shelf fix. They prefer remdesivir @ $450/day

Expert Testimony Before Senate Contradicts Media’s COVID-19 Narrative
Written by Dennis Behreandt




The first week of May, 2020, saw an incredible event take place in the U.S. Senate that mainstream organs of the news media did their very best to ignore. The event was the occasion of testimony from several experts in medicine, economics, and statistics to the Senate Committee on Homeland Security & Government Affairs, chaired by Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson (R). Including some of the most experienced and respected researchers in the country, as well as doctors working at the front lines of the pandemic actively engaged in treating COVID-19 and saving patients suffering from it, these experts provided perspectives on the pandemic that are largely missing from and contradict mainstream coverage of the crisis and reports from leaders of the White House coronavirus task force.

The first expert to testify to the committee was Wisconsin physician Pierre Kory, associate professor of medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. In his testimony, Dr. Kory noted that he was part of a group of world-renowned critical care experts working to save patients with COVID-19 that has come up with their own treatment protocol for the disease.

Called the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care (FLCCC) Working Group, the physicians involved call their treatment for the disease the MATH+ protocol. It was developed specifically to counteract the inflammation and excess clotting that is experienced by severe COVID-19 sufferers. The protocol includes treatment with intravenous methylprednisolone, high-dose intravenous vitamin C, full-dose low molecular weight Heparin (an anticoagulant), and optional treatments with thiamine, zinc, and vitamin D. Readers can learn much more about the treatment protocol at the FLCCC’s website, covid19criticalcare.com.
