Knut Wittkowski, previously the head of the Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design at the Rockefeller University in New York City has given an interview in which he destroys the MSM and DeepState narrative about the Wuhan virus in general and the quarantine recommendations in particular.
“[W]hat people are trying to do is flatten the curve. I don’t really know why. But, what happens is if you flatten the curve, you also prolong, to widen it, and it takes more time. And I don’t see a good reason for a respiratory disease to stay in the population longer than necessary,”
He then went on to clarify further: “With all respiratory diseases, the only thing that stops the disease is herd immunity. About 80% of the people need to have had contact with the virus, and the majority of them won’t even have recognized that they were infected, or they had very, very mild symptoms, especially if they are children. So, it’s very important to keep the schools open and kids mingling to spread the virus to get herd immunity as fast as possible, and then the elderly people, who should be separated, and the nursing homes should be closed during that time, can come back and meet their children and grandchildren after about 4 weeks when the virus has been exterminated,”
Wittkowski then returned to a theme that was prominent among many analysts-that the Wuhan was not unlike the flu in many ways-and that if left along it would have a life cycle of about two weeks. That observation has been widely mocked despite all the evidence that it is true.
“You cannot stop the spread of a respiratory disease within a family, and you cannot stop it from spreading with neighbors, with people who are delivering, who are physicians—anybody. People are social, and even in times of social distancing, they have contacts, and any of those contacts could spread the disease. It will go slowly, and so it will not build up herd immunity, but it will happen. And it will go on forever unless we let it go.”
When asked about Comrade Fauci and his contrary-to-all-the-data fear mongering, Wittkowski replied, “Well, I’m not paid by the government, so I’m entitled to actually do science.”
