Flimsy CDC Covid data

Quite interesting and may be partly true or all true, but so what?

We don’t have to know any of this!

It’s quite simple: enough folk who have been infected and yet have zero symptoms can spread the virus.

Therefore we should find quarantine all positive persons and so, with universal masks in public places, kill the pandemic in under 18 weeks.

We don’t need to know who are the spreaders. If infected be quarantined. It’s that simple.

You should watch the the crucial update on the science, logic and data.

Crucial?

How so?

Besides, the “Thesis” by the General Practitioner, Carl Henighan is that:

“Susceptible old people, and those with preconditions, are mere “dry firewood” that are destined to be burnt up anyway. So there’s naught to be concerned about.”

A lot of us would question that!

Still, I do not know how his “Evidence Based Organization” is ranked by eminent academic statisticians in the field of Epidemiology.

Just because he is articulate, erudite and “appears” consistent doesn’t mean he’s actually correct.

If those criteria were indeed sufficient proof, then each of the major competing monotheistic religions would be “absolutely true” and obviously that cannot be so!

"Deaths are the only reliable measure, and that the number of cases should not even be presented as it is so reliant on the amount of testing being done.
Many of the antibody tests are “extremely unreliable” and rely on hard-to-achieve representative groups. But more important, many people who have been exposed to the virus will have other kinds of immunity that don’t show up on antibody tests — either for genetic reasons or the result of pre-existing immunities to related coronaviruses such as the common cold".

It is this hidden immunity, more than government interventions, that offers the best explanation of the Covid-19 progression.

When you have pockets of vulnerable people it might rip through those pockets in a way that it wouldn’t if the vulnerable people were more scattered within the general population.”

“When you have pockets of vulnerable people it might rip through those pockets in a way that it wouldn’t if the vulnerable people were more scattered within the general population.”

That Gupta is repeating the:

“Old folk are essentially disposable dried fuel”

...of the General Practitioner, self-styled pioneer, Carl Henighan!

So this discussion is not progressing as the arguments have all already been made and repeated.

Your favored explanations have been very well expressed so any further points you might have missed, send by message to me directly.

We do need to get back to photography.
