The “COVID Chronicles” film1 offers a concise have a look at the pandemic, answering a number of the questions which have left many individuals scratching their heads, as a result of the truth and science don’t appear to match up with what the media is reporting.
Ivor Cummins is a biochemical engineer with a background in medical system engineering and main groups in complicated problem-solving. On his web site, TheFatEmperor.com,2 he provides steering on learn how to decode science to rework your well being. He produced “COVID Chronicles” together with Donal O’Neill, a documentary filmmaker within the discipline of well being and human efficiency.
There have been pink flags within the pandemic from the beginning. As a result of the signs of COVID-19 overlap with so many different illnesses, the one strategy to know you’ve gotten it’s to check for it.
The polymerase chain response (PCR) assessments used for COVID-19 use a robust amplification course of that makes them so delicate they will even detect the stays of a useless virus lengthy after an infection, Cummins explains. However even past that, each optimistic COVID-19 take a look at is taken into account a “case” — and therein lies a significant downside.
A Constructive Take a look at Isn’t the Similar as a Case
Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, an inner drugs physician and former head of well being on the Council of Europe, is amongst those that referred to the COVID-19 pandemic as a “take a look at pandemic” because of the PCR take a look at.3
“It was accepted by WHO, they usually mentioned when the take a look at is optimistic, we have now a case of COVID-19. And that is how they began counting the circumstances,” Wodarg says. “What they counted was the exercise of testing. And the extra they examined, the extra circumstances they discovered.”4 When labs use extreme cycle thresholds, you find yourself with a grossly overestimated variety of optimistic assessments, resulting in a “casedemic”5,6 — an epidemic of false positives.
Wodarg says COVID-19 “was a ‘take a look at’ pandemic. It was not a virus pandemic,”7 as a result of PCR assessments could give a optimistic consequence when it detects coronaviruses which have been round for 20 years.8 In “COVID Chronicles,” Cummins speaks with John Lee, a former medical professor of pathology at Hull York Medical College and guide histopathologist at Rotherham Basic Hospital, who later turned the Rotherham NHS Basis Belief’s director of most cancers companies.
He echoes Wodarg, stating that throughout the pandemic, each optimistic take a look at is taken into account a case, however “these are two utterly various things.”9 Usually, when you have a typical chilly, as an example, you solely develop into a “case” when you’re hospitalized, however this all modified with the pandemic. Lee says:10
“In coronavirus, we’ve been counting each single optimistic take a look at as a optimistic case. Now that is scientifically and medically unsuitable. You may have a optimistic coronavirus take a look at and be utterly effectively. You may have a optimistic coronavirus take a look at and be excreting minimal quantities of the virus.
To conflate optimistic assessments with circumstances is solely unsuitable, and but the optimistic circumstances have been driving authorities coverage and the whole panoply of restrictive actions which have been taken.”
January 13, 2021, “WHO lastly questioned the accuracy of PCR testing,” the movie notes, and launched an data discover that clarified directions for decoding outcomes of PCR assessments, together with the truth that “cautious interpretation of weak optimistic outcomes is required.”11 “Reported case charges collapsed within the U.S. the next day,” “COVID Chronicles” factors out.12
Lockdowns Didn’t Work
Lockdowns may be efficient in the event that they’re carried out when nobody has the illness, however as soon as it is already spreading in your inhabitants, they do not work. In the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, the lockdown was carried out far too late and prompted way more hurt than profit.
The movie highlights COVID-19 outcomes across the globe, together with in vastly totally different areas, like densely-populated Khayelitsha in South Africa. It was initially assumed that COVID-19 would devastate the world. They have been strictly locked down together with the remainder of South Africa, however because of the dense inhabitants, the lockdown in Khayelitsha solely served to pressure individuals additional proper on prime of each other.
As a result of the world has an extended historical past of battling illnesses like HIV and tuberculosis, it was straightforward for officers to make use of knowledge from the world, which shortly confirmed that these most in danger from COVID-19 have been aged, frail or affected by different circumstances like Kind 2 diabetes. What stunned many, nevertheless, is that Khayelitsha fared a lot the identical throughout the pandemic as in all places else in South Africa.
Additional, because the second and third waves struck, these in Khayelitsha have been a lot better protected, at the same time as new variants emerged. It was later discovered that as many as 68% of native residents had COVID-19 antibodies.13 As famous in “COVID Chronicles”:14
“[A]s Delta reduce a swathe the world over and certainly South Africa, it was larger right here than any of the prior waves or the variants that we had seen. However in Khayelitsha, that 68% stage of antibodies throughout the group proved to be extraordinarily highly effective and really, very protecting, even in opposition to the brand new Delta variant.
So whereas the U.Ok. was in full disarray, right here we had an off-the-cuff settlement in an economically disadvantaged area with a inhabitants of half one million outperforming the U.Ok. and plenty of First World nations … they’d not supposed … for COVID to unfold all through the group. However in doing so, they arrived at some extent the place herd immunity, when you like, had been reached.”
Different communities additionally loved excessive ranges of COVID-19 antibodies in the neighborhood, together with in India, the Orthodox Jewish group in London and Amish communities within the U.S. So, when this virus was left to behave in a fashion that may permit it to unfold amongst the wholesome, they have been sometimes attending to about two-thirds of the inhabitants displaying antibody ranges.15
Masks Mandates Didn’t Work
Like lockdowns, masks mandates are one other pandemic management measure that’s been pushed as gospel regardless of lack of effectiveness and proof of hurt. The “Danmask-19 Trial,” revealed November 18, 2020, within the Annals of Inner Drugs,16 discovered that amongst masks wearers 1.8% (42 individuals) ended up testing optimistic for SARS-CoV-2, in comparison with 2.1% (53) amongst controls.
Once they eliminated the individuals who reported not adhering to the suggestions to be used, the outcomes remained the identical — 1.8% (40 individuals), which suggests adherence makes no vital distinction. Initially, quite a few analysis journals refused to publish the outcomes, which referred to as widespread masks mandates into query.17
If masks work, the movie factors out, it’s best to instantly see a dramatic change within the curve, inside 14 days. “For those who have a look at round 10 or 12 nations the place they introduced in masks mandates, there was no influence on the curve … in any way so the empirical science of our personal eyes is screaming at us: masks and lockdowns do not actually transfer the needle a lot, perhaps slightly, however nobody needs to know. It is an ideology now. It is a faith,” Cummins says.18
Dr. Reid Sheftall additionally studied masks utilization extensively and located masks mandates didn’t noticeably change the variety of circumstances or deaths the best way they need to if they really scale back transmissibility. Nations that used minimal masks weren’t worse off than neighboring nations with masks mandates.19
“That is smart,” Cummins says, “as a result of 40 years of science have been unanimous, just about, that for influenza viruses, surgical masks and coverings are extremely ineffective. So it agrees with the science.” But, the media declare masks are efficient, primarily based on a “flurry of papers” that got here in round June 2020 saying masks could possibly be good. “So a couple of weeks of papers have overturned a couple of a long time of scientific sense,” he provides.20
Injections Aren’t Working
It’s now been uncovered that the viral a great deal of COVID-19 are comparable amongst individuals who’ve been injected and people who haven’t.21 “What sort of a vaccine wants three vaccinations, and a perhaps a fourth, and extra, inside months?” Cummins asks. “The reply is a vaccine that’s probably not working very effectively in any respect.”22
The media message that the pandemic is now a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” can be deceptive, since knowledge from Israel confirmed that comparable numbers of individuals have been being hospitalized for COVID-19, whether or not they have been injected or not.23 Cummins notes:24
“There’s numerous trickery with the information. The hospitalizations are troublesome as a result of you possibly can’t get the uncooked knowledge, they usually’re very confounded knowledge. In a single case … the U.S. got here out with shock tales that 99% are unvaccinated. Nonetheless, they have been accounting for means again … earlier than the vaccines have been out there.
So the lion’s share again then have been unvaccinated as a result of the vaccines weren’t right here but. So there’s numerous trickery — I might say fraud — in the best way the information’s being introduced.”
Individuals who’ve obtained just one injection of an mRNA collection are additionally known as unvaccinated, which additional biases the information to once more make it appear to be extra uninjected individuals are being hospitalized. What’s extra, the movie notes, “In 2021, professor Sir Andrew Pollard, director of the Oxford Vaccine Group, said that, ‘… herd immunity by vaccination is just not a risk as a result of it [Delta] nonetheless infects vaccinated people.’”25
Is This a Pandemic of Way of life?
Dr. Aseem Malhotra, a guide heart specialist and chairman of public well being collaboration within the U.Ok., can be featured in “COVID Chronicles,” talking in regards to the underlying components that make sure individuals extra susceptible to COVID-19 — specifically lifestyle-related illnesses pushed by poor food regimen.
This facet of prevention through a long-term wholesome way of life, which might save lives in future pandemics, is one other tenet that’s ignored by the dominant narrative. Malhotra explains:26
“I feel what we’ve had is a quick pandemic, when it comes to COVID, that has exacerbated and brought benefit of a gradual pandemic, which is the pandemic of continual, lifestyle-related illnesses which have been placing stress on our well being care system for a lot of, a few years, and our NHS, actually even earlier than COVID, was already at a breaking level.
However truly, COVID has damaged the again of the NHS, and the principle purpose behind it’s because we failed, for a lot of, a few years, to deal with prevention head on, particularly the largest driver of those continual illnesses: poor food regimen.
Ultraprocessed meals, which is the guts of the issue, is now half of the calorie consumption within the British food regimen. It’s about 60% of the calorie consumption in america, and there’s a really clear correlation between, already, nations that had 50% or extra of the inhabitants chubby or overweight had 90% of the deaths from COVID-19. So, poor metabolic well being means poor immune well being.
However past this, we all know that the actual drivers of this downside are structural. These are to do with the setting and with misinformation that’s being subjected on the general public for the needs of revenue. And the 2 actual culprits behind this, in my standpoint, are the meals business and the pharmaceutical business.
And the collusion of lecturers, medical journals, medical doctors and politicians for monetary achieve with these industries is the guts of the issue. This must be uncovered, and the general public wants to grasp and notice that the largest enemies of democracy are the meals business and the pharmaceutical business.”
If Not for Media, Would You Know There’s a Pandemic?
The movie implies that COVID-19 introduced a possibility that a number of entities have used to additional their very own agendas, whereas media have served as a device for overriding science and customary sense. It’s necessary to remain grounded and suppose critically to keep away from falling sufferer to pointless panic and stress. Cummins notes:27
“A key factor to recollect, I feel, is when you turned off the media, nobody would know there’s an epidemic. Even throughout the surges in Eire, in each seasons, when you didn’t have entry to the media, you’ll by no means know.
Nobody actually knew anybody who died — exterior of somebody in a nursing house, somebody of elevated age or with stage 4 most cancers — most individuals didn’t know anybody who died. Proper? Isn’t that unimaginable, in an enormous pandemic, as we’ve been informed?”
