A recent study by John Ioannidis @Stanford adjusts the infection fatality rate (IFR) of COVID19 from 0.23% (previous estimate) to 0.15%. It is now almost identical to the IFR of the flu 1/4
"the available evidence suggests average global IFR of ~0.15% and ~1.5-2.0 billion infections by February 2021 with substantial differences in IFR and in infection spread across continents, countries, and locations." -Feb 2021
A previous estimate by John Ioannidis published by WHO
"the median COVID-19 infection fatality rate was 0.27% (corrected 0.23%)" -Oct 2020
John Ioannidis was right all along.
“At a very broad, bird’s eye view level, worldwide the IFR of COVID-19 this season may be in the same ballpark as the IFR of influenza (0.1%, 0.2% in a bad year)” -May 2020

"Why are we not screening/testing persons for existing or prior infection prior to vaccination? Such screening should include PCR testing and Antibody testing at a minimum as a prelude to vaccinations." Paul Alexander
"We believe that given the accumulated knowledge over the past year that indiscriminate application of mass vaccination is contrary to the Hippocratic dictum of “Primum Non Nocere.”
"all vaccinations should be targeted and not delivered en masse"
"the most appropriate and pressing need in society at the present time is to protect the vulnerable, the elderly with comorbid conditions"

“The clear message from the data is that the mass testing is haphazard, fragmented, disjointed, and absolutely the antithesis of public health... why we need this programme to go to the [national] screening committee and to be properly evaluated before any more rollouts of tests”
“Two tests a week are recommended, followed by a PCR confirmatory test after a positive result. Government guidance says that twice weekly testing should continue indefinitely”

Well-informed people make better decisions.
Sharing information with your loved ones is the greatest act of love you can do today.

@NickHudsonCT tells the story of the century.

Please share @PanData19's presentation.
@BizNewsCOM @alechogg
The MSM and motivated groups have spread a false narrative about #COVID19. This narrative has filled people's hearts with fear.
You need to know the truth and everyone you love needs to know the truth so you can act in your own best interest.

"we are getting columboed. bigly." by el gato malo 🐈‍⬛🐈‍⬛🐈‍⬛🐈‍⬛🐈‍⬛
follow the black cat...
"did you not see what just happened over the last year as “2 weeks to flatten the curve” became a year of lockdown, how “sparing hospitals” became the ludicrous “zero covid,” and how “just until we get a vaccine” became “not even once you’re vaccinated”?" 🐈‍⬛
"a digital ID/vaccine passport will touch nearly everyone and nearly every aspect of your life"
"what it is is a requirement for you, now and forever, to acquire affirmative permission to engage in the basic actions of living your life, going to work, traveling, eating" 🐈‍⬛

“Non-vulnerable people isolating are therefore being selfish, not noble.” @NickHudsonCT
If you are healthy and young, the noble thing to do is to take the virus to protect the vulnerable. 1/n

Consider this...
People have been kept in fear to ensure that everyone stands in line blindly to take the vaccine.
Vaccinating 7.8 Billion people including fetuses, infants, children and young people brings in a lot more profit than vaccinating a tiny minority of people at risk. 2/n
Big Pharma make money by selling medication to the sick, those diagnosed with a disease.
How can they increase their market share?
They diversify into products that can be sold to the healthy.
That’s fine if those who are healthy are at risk from a disease. 3/n
