From economics professor Justin Wolfers: This is stunning: Nearly half of the Q1 decline in GDP can be attributed to healthcare, which is presumably delaying of elective procedures. It’s a strange reality that in the midst of a pandemic, we have a healthcare-led recession. Wolfers has figured out that shutting down a significant part of […]
It’s just two physicians who tested more than 5,000 people for the Wuhan, explaining why you have the same chance of dying from The Wuhan as you do the Flu. YouTube banned the video after it had gotten more than 5 million views. There is a link to the video now hosted on my server […]
That’s a headline from 2005. Yeah, we’ve been through this before, where the experts make wild, apocalyptic prophecies to get attention and boost their funding. David Nabarro, one of the most senior public health experts at the World Health Organisation, said outbreaks of bird flu, which have killed at least 65 people in Asia, could […]
Wilfred Reilly reports the results: As of 6 April, seven US states had not adopted shelter-in-place orders, instead imposing social-distancing restrictions such as banning large gatherings and mandating six-foot spacing gaps and maximum customer limits inside all retail stores. Those seven states are Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming. These states […]
I interview my Mom and Dad about their experience with the coronavirus, including their initial symptoms and the difference in the progression of their illness, their treatment at the hospital, the effect of prayers while they were in the hospital, the side effects of the anti-malarial drug and their thoughts about the economic shutdown.
This is a beautiful chart from Rt.live showing the state by state rate of spread of the Wuhan. Higher numbers are bad, lower numbers are good. One of the things that is interesting is that the rate of spread of the contagion had already dropped in most places before the lockdown began.
Patrick Szarnicki has taken the time to compile national mortality figures week by week for the last few years and noticed that even with the inflated Wuhan numbers being reported, we’re still below average (that’s a good thing), in terms of deaths per week compared to the average since 2014. Look: If you compare this […]
On the 14th NYC added 3,700 deaths to their count, regardless of whether the deaths were caused by the Wuhan and even without any testing. At the time of the ‘revision’, total deaths in NYC were under 10,000. The ‘revision’, amounting to nearly 40% of the total, may give us insight into the degree […]
I’ve seen first hand in my family and in my wife’s family how mental illness destroys marriages, upends livelihoods and infects children as if it were a generational contagion. It’s not something that responsible people would treat flippantly, and yet our rulers knew the panic they fomented over the Wuhan virus would generate an unprecedented […]
