Pandemic rules are only for the little people-
We're expected to suffer discomfort, economic pain, and emotional distress or else pay fines or serve jail time. Government officials, meanwhile, take offense when called out for violating the standards they created.
Maybe it BECAUSE They “Know” Something WE Don’t?
MORE “MISINFORMATION” ON COVID.
(Sorry, I posted this elsewhere here in IDW)
Last week, Johns Hopkins University published a now-deleted article explaining a study examining the effects of the novel coronavirus on United States death totals using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Genevieve Briand, the assistant program director of the Applied Economics master’s degree program at Johns Hopkins, determined, in the study, that there have been 1.7 million deaths in the U.S. between March 2020 and September 2020, 12% (or roughly 200,000) of which have been coronavirus-related.
Briand posits that the only way to understand the significance of the U.S. coronavirus death rate is by comparing it to the number of total deaths in the country.
According to Briand, who compared the total deaths per age category from both before and after the onset of the global pandemic, the death rate of older people stayed the same before and after coronavirus.
“The reason we have a higher number of reported COVID-19 deaths among older individuals than younger individuals is simply because every day in the U.S. older individuals die in higher numbers than younger individuals,” wrote Briand.
She also noted that between 50,000 and 70,000 deaths are seen both before and after the emergence of the virus, meaning that, according to her analysis, coronavirus has had no effect on the percentage of total deaths of older people, nor has it increased the total number of deaths in the category.
Note this unintentionally hilarious sub-header that accompanies the article:
The university stands by the study but said the article was leading to the spread of ‘misinformation’
So, the very essence of this article is that the rate of death among the elderly has not changed from what it was before COVID-19 came along and supposedly started killing them, but Johns Hopkins doesn’t want you to know that seemingly critical piece of information because they claim it is ‘misinformation’.
