1/ Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs Cost-Benefit Analysis Done During COVID-19  Lockdown Concluded, “The Costs Are Disproportionately High”, i.e., "9X > benefits"  dailysceptic.org/2021/11/16/dut…
2/ "an economic contraction of €40 billion, a loss of €25 billion due to cessation of regular healthcare, plus a loss of €5 billion due to the “psychological consequences” of lockdown. Total expected costs were therefore €70 billion – almost 9 times greater than the benefits"
3/ authors proposed an alternative to lockdown, which involved expanding care and testing capacity to “get society going again”. Widespread testing would mean that infectious people could be isolated “in a targeted manner” & those who had “built up immunity” could return to work.
4/ the analysis by the Ministry of Economic Affairs was ignored. To date, the Dutch have endured 144 days of curfews and stay-at-home orders, along with assorted other restrictions. And the country has just entered another “partial lockdown” in response to rising infections.

1/ BREAKING: "STATEMENT OF PLAINTIFFS ON DECISION REGARDING PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION ISSUED IN SOUTHWELL V MCKEE" We are grateful that the Judge recognized the significant & irreparable harm being suffered by children in [RI] who are subject to mandatory mask wearing in schools"
2/ As the Judge stated: “The Court finds that these children are suffering and reasonably infers that children
across the state are suffering with the mask mandate.”
3/ The Judge recognized that these parents presented evidence and arguments “sufficient to establish a
reasonable, good-faith policy disagreement with [the state’s] approach to combating COVID-19.”

@GovDanMcKee 1/ In light of these (attached) data, why not end the school mask mandate NOW, and make masking optional for those parents who wish to have their children masked in school? Image
2/ There have been ZERO pediatric deaths FROM covid-19 in RI since the pandemic began maskeraderi.com/?p=28; RI joins 7 other states with that distinction: "7 states reported zero child deaths...0.00%-0.03% of all child C19 cases resulted in death" aap.org/en/pages/2019-…
3/ The RI average daily pediatric hospital census in RI with OR from covid-19 has been <1 since schools re-opened, and was ZERO 8 of the first 10 days of November, through today maskeraderi.com/?p=32 Image

🧵Polio vs. C19 Vaccine Trials
1/Vaccinating Children for Polio v. Covid-19: Controlled (placebo & obs controls) 1954 polio vax field trial jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/… for a lethal, crippling childhood illness involved ~1.83 million total, ~1.35 million in paralytic polio analysis
2/ Covid-19 RCT fda.gov/media/153409/d… for 5 to 11 year olds given Pfizer mRNA vax involved ~2300 for a disease whose mortality in the pediatric age range approaches ZERO, while childhood “long covid” = “long pandemic” (i.e.,=psychosomatic)
3/ The 1954 polio field trial paralytic polio analysis recorded 516 cases of paralytic polio; the Pfizer C19 RCT in 5 to 11yos recorded ZERO cases of severe C19 despite recruiting ~20% with comorbidities

1/ Finally proof China created Covid? Group of online sleuths fought to discover if the virus was engineered by scientists in Wuhan lab at the heart of probe into the pandemic's origins
2/ "despite testing markets, farms and no fewer than 80,000 animal samples spanning dozens of species across China, no evidence has emerged for a similar chain of early 'zoonotic' infections — transmitted from animals to humans — in SARS-CoV-2"
3/"May 2020 Alina (Chan) discovered that, compared with 2003 SARS virus which evolved rapidly in the early months as it adapted to human beings, the virus causing C19 seemed — rather unusually — to be already well adapted to infecting human bodies from first detection in Wuhan"

2/ “Dr. McDonald attempted to mislead this Court as to the seriousness of the threat of COVID-19 to children by citing to 3 pediatric COVID-19 deaths from last year... Dr. Bostom proved...[t]here have been no COVID-19 deaths of anyone under age 24 in Rhode Island”
3/“Nor do scare mongering about pediatric COVID-19 hospitalizations bear scrutiny. There has been an average of about one pediatric hospitalization in the state since the Executive Order was issued.”
