Well well. Here we all are, one day after the DemocRats saved the world from Donald Trump.
According to this article, the World Health Organization (WHO) released a new report on the standard COVID-19 test. One hour after Biden was sworn in. Because they couldn't have got it out sooner, right?
"...literally one hour after Biden takes the oath, the WHO admits that PCR testing at high amplification rates alters the predictive value of the tests and results in a huge number of false positives..."
Yeah, those tests that PROVE we need a lockdown otherwise we're all gonna DIEEEEEEE!!!!!11!! are kinda wrong. False positive means they think you have it, but you don't.
Also contained in the article: the media fatality rate is 3.7%. The actual, real, true fatality rate of COVID-19 is 0.13%. And the WHO just admitted that 0.13% is the true number.
And just to add insult to injury, the normal everyday flu we get every year has a fatality rate about the same to slightly worse than 0.13%. Dreaded Swine Flu of 2009, ~0.1xx% range. Give or take.
US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) COVID-19 estimated survival rates by age:
0 to 19: 99.997% Translation, virtually no kid under 20 has died from Covid-19. The only ones who did die would have had serious health conditions already. Like they had one foot in the grave and the other on a vaudeville cliche. Or more likely they died of something else and the hospital called it Covid-19 to get money.
20 to 49: 99.98% Translation: Virtually nobody from 20 to 40 years old has died of Covid-19. Unless they were already dying of something else, and maybe not even then.
50 to 69: 99.5% Translation: If you are 50-69 years old you are more likely to die shoveling snow than you are to die of Covid-19. Nobody who wasn't already fucked died of Covid.
70+: 94.6% Translation: Old people MOSTLY GET OVER THIS. 5.4% of people die. The oldest and sickest, namely people in nursing homes, are the ones dying of Covid-19.
And remember, these numbers are based on PCR TESTING using the same test that the WHO just admitted has huge numbers of false positives.
Nobody (statistically speaking) has died of this thing except the old and frail in nursing homes, pretty much. Which, just to emphasize for the stupid among us, is not okay. The whole point of nursing homes is to PROTECT old people from infectious disease, among other things. Instead, because our nursing homes are a disgrace, all they do is concentrate the victims into a nice handy petri-dish for the virus to kill in job lots.
Who are the very last people going to get the COVID-19 vaccine in Ontario? Nursing home patients.
Who are they testing the vaccine on? Healthcare workers. Front-line doctors and nurses.
Okay? So now you know what's what. Funny you had to come here to read it, and it wasn't on the CBC.
