A simple 2 mins Internet search can provide a long list of official references that indicate the Covid-19 contagion should be way larger than earlier estimated. It’s actually becoming a trending topic online.
That is mainly due to the fact that most infections are lacking serious symptoms or any at all, as officials claim.
Most striking is a report from Iceland, which claims half the carriers there showed no symptoms at all, after a mass nation-wide testing.
As of Sunday night, the country’s health authorities and the biotechnology firm deCode Genetics have tested more than 10,300 people. That might not sound like a large number, compared to the around 350,000 Americans who have been tested for coronavirus according to the COVID Tracking Project, but it is a far higher percentage of tests per population – a ratio Icelandic authorities have claimed is the highest in the world.
But it is not just the numbers of people being tested that is unusual about Iceland’s approach.
Unlike other countries, where people are only tested if they exhibit symptoms of coronavirus or have come into contact with known spreaders, the country is testing thousands of people from the general population who don’t exhibit any symptoms of the virus whatsoever – helping to reveal information about the nature of the pathogen and its symptoms.
As opposed to Iceland, most (if not all) other countries have focused their testing on outbreak areas and the people that displayed symptoms. That’s precisely where you are supposed to find the highest death rates. But not necessarily the highest rate of infections.
How could the authorities grasp the actual situation in this light?
And then here comes an article recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine by “America’s top specialist”, as CNN branded him, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, with collaboration from Dr. H. Clifford Lane, and Dr. Robert R. Redfield. They are claiming the case fatality rate may be less than one percent, and the clinical consequences of Covid-19 may be more similar to that of a severe seasonal influenza:
“On the basis of a case definition requiring a diagnosis of pneumonia, the currently reported case fatality rate is approximately 2%. In another article in the Journal, Guan et al. report mortality of 1.4% among 1099 patients with laboratory-confirmed Covid-19; these patients had a wide spectrum of disease severity. If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively.”
Several sources have confirmed this article soon after being published, I’ll add some of the most notable or interesting:
“The coronavirus may not be as deadly as previously suggested, according to a new study that accounts for cases that were not diagnosed.
The study published Monday in the medical journal The Lancet Infectious Diseases estimated that the death rate will be 0.66%, which is much lower than figures between 2% and 3.4% that have come out of Wuhan, China, according to CNN.
Researchers said the lower coronavirus mortality rate was determined by accounting for cases that went undiagnosed — possibly because they were mild or had no symptoms.”
What does that mean to the death-rate and the whole official narrative?
Basic maths show the death rate numbers plunge proportionally with the positive contagion adjustments; simply the numbers of casualties per number of infections is way lower.
And without a high death rate you have no warrant for home-arresting over one billion people.
Bonus food for thought: polio shows no symptoms or mild flu symptoms in about 95% of the carriers.
