COVID EXPERTS Or Expert THIEVES? U.S. Has Far Higher Covid Death Rate Than Other Wealthy Countries. Plus: LOCKDOWNS KILL! 

February 6, 2022

U.S. Has Far Higher Covid Death Rate Than Other Wealthy Countries, is a title of the New York Times, February 1, 2002. Wow, if the New York Times starts telling the truth… What’s next? Revealing that the US financiers of the Wuhan Virus (lab), sitting pretty at NIH, had various vested interests in COVID? Just asking?

Let’s relax with a bit of boring New York Times:

The ballooning death toll has defied the hopes of many Americans that the less severe Omicron variant would spare the United States the pain of past waves. Deaths have now surpassed the worst days of the autumn surge of the Delta variant, and are more than two-thirds as high as the record tolls of last winter, when vaccines were largely unavailable.

With American lawmakers desperate to turn the page on the pandemic, as some European leaders have already begun to, the number of dead has clouded a sense of optimism, even as Omicron cases recede. And it has laid bare weaknesses in the country’s response, scientists said.

Death rates are so high in the States — eye-wateringly high,” said Devi Sridhar, head of the global public health program at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, who has supported loosening coronavirus rules in parts of Britain. “The United States is lagging.”

The US effort has been led by Dr. Fauci, who said multiple times that attacks on him were attacks on science, because”I am science”

Fauci style science is like a chameleon, always changing appearance. Videos are out there of Fauci authoritatively contradicting Fauci. Fauci is not just science, he is also bipolar and schizophrenic. In truth, much of the science on COVID has drastically evolved.

For example, I believed from earlier publications that the virus infected neurons. However a thorough paper published in science a couple of weeks ago, asserts that it is the immune reaction which attacks the brain. If that’s really true, it changes a lot of things…

LOCKDOWNS KILL:

An international huge meta analysis led by John Hopkins University showed that lockdowns during the first COVID wave in the spring of 2020 only reduced COVID mortality by .2% in the U.S. and Europe.

Abstract:

This systematic review and meta-analysis are designed to determine whether there is empirical evidence to support the belief that “lockdowns” reduce COVID-19 mortality. Lockdowns are defined as the imposition of at least one compulsory, non-pharmaceutical intervention (NPI). NPIs are any government mandate that directly restrict peoples’ possibilities, such as policies that limit internal movement, close schools and businesses, and ban international travel. This study employed a systematic search and screening procedure in which 18,590 studies are identified that could potentially address the belief posed. After three levels of screening, 34 studies ultimately qualified. Of those 34 eligible studies, 24 qualified for inclusion in the meta-analysis. They were separated into three groups: lockdown stringency index studies, shelter-in-placeorder (SIPO) studies, and specific NPI studies. An analysis of each of these three groups support the conclusion that lockdowns have had little to no effect on COVID-19 mortality. More specifically, stringency index studies find that lockdowns in Europe and the United States only reduced COVID-19 mortality by 0.2% on average. SIPOs were also ineffective, only reducing COVID-19 mortality by 2.9% on average. Specific NPI studies also find no broad-based evidence of noticeable effects on COVID-19 mortality. 

 

While this meta-analysis concludes that lockdowns have had little to no public health effects, they have imposed enormous economic and social costs where they have been adopted. In consequence, lockdown policies are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.

 

Meanwhile, Neil Young, a Canadian who made his fame with students shot in Ohio, recently burnished his progressive credentials by denouncing a pioneer of messenger RNA research. A “podcast” host interviewed a professional researcher Dr. Malone, over three hours, in an interview which was often highly technical (I listened to the first half)… and highly critical of established experts, many of whom Dr. Malone met professionally in his long career. Wikipedia has a hit piece n Dr. Malone which poses as a biography (although it mentions he could get the Nobel for his research [2]). Suddenly celebrities  with no background in science whatsoever denounced anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers, all over got cheap advertizing by displaying their scientific virtue. Now, of course, the governor of California, a corrupt politician and plotician making a colossal fortune from his prostitution for the house of Getty, is also an expert biologist in his own mind, proclaiming states of emergencies in California to mask two year old babies, claiming they spread the disease…. While Newsom himself goes unmasked, claiming it’s OK, as long as he has a mask in his left hand... in the sort of places where he himself ordered low lives to wear masks…

Dr. Malone was banned all over social networks. His discourse is learned, circumspect and technical. So why banned? Because he says, Malone exposed that many of the “experts” had colossal vested interests. They typically sat on the boards of companies they recommended as experts… while making millions from these boards and their stocks or options.  

All this ugly reality got hidden by the mask masquerade. Masks showed their inefficiency during the recent bouts of COVID. Now, the more controversy, the more the mask masquerade masks the reality of what is going on: the financing of a lab known to be extremely dangerous in Wuhan, the refusal of cheap therapeutics, etc… While “COVID experts” sit pretty on the boards of immensely wealthy pharmaceuticals, etc…

I have argued that the “Mask Masquerade Kills”: masks are mostly ineffective [3], while giving a false sense of security, thus exposing people to contamination. But then they are useful to the establishment as small people, low lives learn to live without faces, while believing that having no face saves lives…

Even George Orwell and other writers writing about the worst futures they could imagine, never dream that one day people would view having no faces as the summum of morality and altruism. Let alone, health.

[3] Paradoxically, I got COVID in Spring 2020, after a collision in the complete wilderness with an unmasked cyclist on a trail forbidden to cyclists, and on which I had never seen a cyclist before. Thus I would have profited from wearing a mask… This group of cyclists was there as they knew there would be no rangers because of COVID. Also it was the only spot a collision could happen by surprise, because of a sharp bend… In general though COVID is transmitted in enclosed locals where only HEPA filters and open windows could lower the viral load floating in the air… Getting the virus outdoors is nearly impossible.

US COVID Experts’ Expertise: World Death Record, Towering Personal Wealth

January 16, 2022

Granted, how COVID deaths are recorded, or estimated, varies. Granted, population with more older people have higher percentage of COVID deaths. Yet, the differences worldwide are striking… and real. India, after apocalyptic predictions, went completely the other way, admittedly with a younger population, and got out of the pandemic by the end of 2021. The USA, led by the noisy privileged Dr. Fauci [0], who interacted with the Wuhan Institute of Virology in the domain of modifying bat viruses, fared worst with COVID. No argument: the numbers speak for themselves:

The USA has the world wealthiest, and most incompetent epidemiological experts, objective numbers of per capita death show. It is easy to figure out a relationshionship between wealth, corruption and deliberate incompetency. What about a criminal inquiry?

Why did this happen? Not protecting the most vulnerable populations: see “Democratic” governor Cuomo in New York, refusing the ship Mercy offered by “Republican” president Trump, and, instead stuffing back COVID patients in old folks’ homes…. where they promptly got infected and died.

Another factor has been naive overdependency on lockdowns and the efficiency of masks in confined enclosures after a few minutes. The epidemological graphs are very clear: social distancing without masks worked, but, with masks, social distancing did not work. It’s paradoxical, but logical, as a micrometric mask can’t stop a nanometric virus.

General lockdowns have not been shown to work, and have many very adverse effects. In some countries (France), citizens were prevented from accessing the grand outdoors, national parks, empty beaches, etc. Clear fascism devoid of rationality of the sort even Twentietch Century fascists never dreamed of imposing onto their own populations [1]…

For the elite establishment, the advantages of this COVID disaster have been multiple, and not just from greater profits, by getting rid of expensive workers. A foremost advantage of COVID for the elite has been the disrespect of one’s own reasoning capability stupid mandates allegedly against COVID have provided with. When something creates a good feeling, people try their best to make that something come around. Imposing fascism always makes elites feel good. COVID has been excellent that way, for the elites.

Elites have always an interest in fascizing the population, hence always favor the Authority Principle. COVID has provided an occasion to do so, in the name of health, atruism.

The general population has been inculcated with the notion that obeying blindly to very stupid orders is highly moral. Resisting such a (stupid) Authority Principle was not just immoral, illegal, “right wing”, thus racist… But even that those who resist the Authority Principle are “terrorists”. The day after I and others pointed out that nobody had been indicted for “sedition” or “insurrection” in the USA, eleven persons were charged that way (as I had predicted they would be). Including a Naval Veteran, long retired with 100% disability, an elderly gentleman who walks with a cane…

Even Harvard historians are aghast that citizens protesting the government are now charged with “terrorism”. “I’m surprised but not shocked,” Noah Feldman, a Harvard legal historian, said about the sedition charges on Thursday. “It’s a hard charge to prove. And it has this distinctive history of being used by governments who overreached in prosecuting their citizens.”

Ah, if even Harvard is turning against the establishment, that is, itself, something is happening. Distinctive history of overreach? Is the USA going the way of Putin’s Russia? In Putin’s Reich basically all opponents have been charged with “sedition”.

[0} Dr. Fauci’s household is worth more than 10.5 million dollars, in stock investments alone… and earned 1.7 million in 2020. His wife Christine Grady is the chief bio-ethicist at the National Institutes of Health (no nepotism, circulate…).

Dr. Fauci is the top-paid federal employee earning a base salary of $434,312 in 2020. Fauci is the Director of the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and current Chief Medical Advisor to the President. Fauci out-earned the U.S. president ($400,000); four-star generals in the military ($282,000); and roughly 4.3 million other federal employees. 

But it does not stop there. During the pandemic year of 2020, the Fauci household income, perks and benefits, and unrealized gains totaled $1,782,807 — including federal income and benefits of $868,812; outside royalties and travel perks totaling $119,626; and investment accounts increasing by $794,369.

However, critics say that Fauci was funding research that was actually creating pandemic pathogens in labs that, if leaked or if fell into the wrong hands, might create the very human pandemic they were trying to prevent.

Something like that happened in France, with two prion deaths. France immediately closed 9 labs, as the situation is studied carefully. Prions, which are infective, chain reaction proteins, create some neurological diseases similar to Alzheimer.

The case of the wealthy Fauci household is general: the reason US health care cost so much is that the medical and pharmaceutical establishment is made of wealthy individuals… Once, long ago, a doctor made more than six million dollars, from Medicare alone… It made a scandal at the time…

[1] French authorities claimed that it was a principle of equity to not let some citizens access the outdoors when others could not. Let you, the rabble, all be poor at the same time, in the same way…

The hypocrisy was colossal, as the established elite had to respect none of that. In the United Kingdom, while the government imposed French-like fascist lockdowns, booze and maskless parties rocked 10 Downing street, the seat of the UK government, one after the other, and ministers evaded restrictions. The UK Prime Minister, opportunisitic Brexiter Johnson, presented his apology to the plutocrat-in-chief, the Queen (sorry, your highness, to have shown our privileged hand to the rabble).

In the USA, the abundance of the private jet industry, with 1.2 million employees, was in no way affected by all the lockdown silliness imposed on the bleating plebs. Exclusive ski resorts blossomed.

Obsessed By Clean Air

January 15, 2022

Clean Air Is What We Need, Not Just Vaccines:
After censoring earlier observations of mine on masks, the NYT finally published this:

After the cholera epidemics of the Nineteenth Century, a conclusion imposed itself: cities needed clean water. After COVID, a conclusion is that we need clean air. We have the technology: High Efficiency Particle Air, HEPA filters can eliminate most of the viruses and bacteria from the air, using Van Der Waals forces. Masks cannot do that. HEPA filters should be mandatory everywhere.

Without HEPA, viruses build up in the air, and then circumvent masks’ fibers. So mask or no mask, in an enclosed room, after two hours, if one person exudes viruses, everybody catches said virus (N95 means 95% efficiency at 300 nanometers; but the virus is 100 nanometers, and 95% is not 99.97% anyway… The latest number is what HEPA filters achieve… On their first pass…), Not taking any of this in consideration explains the lamentable results of some countries with COVID. One can compare comparables.

The USA and its CDC, with their armies of well paid “experts”, have fared badly…. compared to some comparable countries. While the vaccine development has been remarkable, especially the mRNA vaccines, the mask mandates have been ineffective. That can be seen epidemiologically. Just today the CDC finally agreed that many masks worn in the US don’t work very well. Telling what peer reviewed articles said on the subject causes censorship in social media.

Living with pandemics cannot be avoided: too many people, too much travel. A good mitigation strategy is HEPA filters everywhere. They are cheap.

Mendham,NJ replied:

@Patrice Ayme You are obsessed with Hepa filters. That is one small part of the equation; not the most important. The most important factor with Covid is its biology. The way it behaves is erratic and in a way it has a mind of its own. This is why all the experts have been wrong now for two years, not only in this country but throughout the world. This disease has to be controlled as a prn basis and with support services until it peter out as it is doing now. The hysteria has to stop. This viral disease is not cholera which can be controlled and treated with appropriate antibiotics and environmental and social issues.

Well, literally, air filtration of viruses and bacteria is antibiotic… anti-bio: against life. Another comment on the preceding was authorized:

Joseph DiBello
Marlborough MA

Your points are valid, but Patrice is right about the masks and air filtration.

***

Peer reviewed articles have show that masks, as used in the USA can be five times worse than… no mask (the CDC is still in denial of that). As a result France, and other European governments, outlawed nearly all mask types, more than a year ago. Millions of masks were destroyed.  

At face value, the US expert establishment connected to the CDC is arguably the worst… in the world. Just look at the numbers.

MASK MASQUERADE KILLS

Fauci, in an explosion of hubris, said that “attacking him was attacking science”. No, it’s attacking corruption in science. NIH called “gain of function” by a slightly different name, and then proceeded to finance the Wuhan Insititute of Virology to do just that on many species of bat corona viruses… While knowing the lab was not respecting the level 4 (maximal) safety necessary to do this. Whether that caused the pandemic or not is not sure. What is sure, is that it was, per se, a criminal act.

We need clean air!

Masks Don’t Work As Well As Rotting Toad

August 29, 2021

Best way to avoid bad COVID (besides vaccinations and clean air)? Wear, not a mask, but a crushed rotting toad on your head: nobody will come close, you be safe. The voodoo mask people, who call toilet paper on their face, “science”, will be repelled. I am glad to repel those who confuse voodoo with science.

An INCONCLUSIVE review article on masks was published by CDC, in September 2020, 4 months before the OUTLAWING of most mask types in Europe. Uncritical masks partisans naively brandish it… but they did not read it… Because if they had, they would not talk about it as if it were a reference… https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7293495/?fbclid=IwAR2D6cbIj7Mq_GdzxJpAYCEk32l30ylSh2Auxm1gVVsIdPMhymEzetw7N6E

Here is its (inconclusive) conclusion of the CDC in said article. (In the meantime numerous studies have shown masks and grandly named N95 respirators, to be mostly INEFFECTIVE… While CLEAN AIR from HEPA filters and ventilation did reduce viral loads… Even the new York Times did its own study concluding HEPA and ventilation worked.)

“7. Conclusion

Researchers have speculated that both droplets and aerosols generated from non-violent and violent expirations of SARS-CoV-2-infected people may be responsible for the airborne transmission of COVID-19 disease. However, more research work should be conducted to understand the behavior of virus-laden droplets and aerosols in different environmental settings, especially confined spaces so that the transmission of COVID-19 pandemic in the built environment could be fully ascertained. The case studies found worldwide indicate that the behavior of the SARS-CoV-2 virus has been unprecedentedly unique with more survival and viable rates in the air and believed to linger in the air for an extended period. The challenge before many healthcare workers in combatting the disease would be a daunting task unless proper administrative, clinical, and physical measures are taken within the healthcare settings. Inter-disciplinary research on the behavior of the SARS-CoV-2 virus needs to be conducted to prevent COVID-19 disease from spreading worldwide.”

Oh, by the way not one serious scientific paper shows that “masks” are effective with children and COVID. As usual the overriding reasoning is the same: COVID is like smoke… Same size, one hundred nanometers. Masks’ efficiency is computed in micron, not nanometer. It takes one thousand nanometers to make one micron. Actually surgical masks are made of plastic, polypropylene, typically, and are made to intercept the spherical cells of Staphylococcus aureus, a bacteria, which are one (1) μm in diameter: one micron, ten times the size of the SARS CoV2 virus.

A MD objected: “Masks aren’t torture. Not everything we do generates aerosols.

Well, for the sadomasochists, torture is pleasure. I had a friend Larry Stark, a MD, PhD, and endowed with many other prestigious positions (professor of neurology, optometry and electric engineering at UC Berkeley and UCSF). He was very defiant of Medical Doctors, saying, basically, that they did not know how to think, as they confused cooking recipes, statistics and genuine mental creativity.

So some doctors told me masks could not possibly hurt, so we may as well use them. However, there are severe medical consequences to masks. One can break limbs because one could not see a defect of the ground (I know personally one case). There are allergies, especially for children. After I run, I absolutely cannot wear mask for quite a while, I suffocate. Masks introduce fibers in the lungs, etc.

Because of intense smoke in the burning Sierra Nevada, I use so called N95 “respirators” twice (they kept some of the AQI 400 smoke out). But had to remove them promptly because I nearly broke limbs within 100 feet (I run cross country, bad mountain trails).

The BS about masks has incited authorities to forsake what works: clean air. CLEAN AIR, like clean water, will one day be the norm. It is technically feasible (HEPA).

Where I am located, mask obsessed PUBLIC schools did NOT invest in clean air: they had decided that masks were the panacea, all they needed, and those who did not wear them, “spread the disease”… Let all children wear masks, and COVID will go away. That was science, according to those public schools…

Well, in Marin County, one (non-vaccinated) teacher with COVID infected 26 MASKED children (the closer to the teacher, the more infected). That’s just one example. The incompetent, rotten governor had only talked and given orders about masks, although HEPA filters are very cheap, and he has a budget surplus of 100 billion dollars… Enough to cover all of California with HEPA filters…

Finally, the San Francisco school board just decided to invest in CLEAN AIR. Too little, too late. Classes are getting full of COVID, even in my daughter public school. Conclusion: COVID, and masked children are forced to go back home.

So it is back to the real truth: in California authorities do not mind if public school close and private schools stay open. Last year the corrupt governor had his four children going to in-person private school (Newsom made two million dollars from his eleven Getty companies) . Meanwhile, “Black Lives Matter” people had children not going to school….

Long live the masquerade…

CDC Early Release / August 27, 2021 / 70

Tracy Lam-Hine, MBA1,2; Stephen A. McCurdy, MD1,3; Lisa Santora, MD1; Lael Duncan, MD1; Russell Corbett-Detig, PhD4; Beatrix Kapusinszky, PhD5; Matthew Willis, MD1 (View author affiliations)View suggested citation

Summary What is already known about this topic?

The SARS-CoV-2 B.1.617.2 (Delta) variant is highly transmissible. Prevention guidance in schools varies by jurisdiction.

What is added by this report?

During May 23–June 12, 2021, 26 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases occurred among Marin County, California, elementary school students and their contacts following exposure to an unvaccinated infected teacher. The attack rate in one affected classroom was 50%; risk correlated with seating proximity to the teacher.

[The CDC deduced from that that masking should be “included”… But once again CDC failed to mention HEPA filters and ventilation…]

US Financed COVID Under Unsafe Conditions? Top Trump Hating Virologist Admits It Implicitly

July 28, 2021

US NIH Financed Gain Of Function on Lethal Corona Bat Viruses At The Wuhan Institute Of Virology

Senator Ron Paul, an MD, accused Dr. Fauci to have financed research in China at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, to make lethal bat coronaviruses even deadlier and more transmissible (Gain Of Function (GoF)). Senator Paul considered that Fauci’s answer “you don’t know what you are talking about, Senator!” was a lie, and reminded him he risked five years imprisonment for lying to Congress under oath. Reading carefully the Twitter thread from partisan virology professor Stuart Neil who ferociously attacks Senator Ron Paul, brings the fair minded to the opposite conclusion to the one intended by the eminent virologist. One just has to quote him. 

The virologist admits “The EcoHealth grant was judged by the [NIH] vetting committee to not involve GoF because the investigators were REPLACING a function in a virus that ALREADY HAD human tropism rather than giving a function to one that could not infect humans“. [Stuart’s own capital letters] In other words, Stuart Neil is splitting hair. Investigators were engineering a virus transmissible to people, they were not doing Gain Of Function (GoF) to gain transmissibility that did not exist, says virologist Neil because that transmissibility was already there. What the virologist doesn’t say is that the transmissibility was improved and that these viruses, found in a cave in 2012, were lethal to humans (they killed miners, that’s how they were found). 

The eminent virologist then adds that it was not gain of function… because the NIH said it was not gain of function, although he adds ominously, contradicting all he said: “Understandably this is a grey area. While I personally think the research was justifiable, there are legitimate concerns that such work needs to be contained in BSL3 and above, and we know some aspects (we do not know which despite innuendo) were performed at BSL2 in WIV” 

So bioengineering on ACE2 spikes for a dangerous virus at the Wuhan Institute of Virology funded by the US National Institute of Health had to be done with maximum bio security, but it was not.

I am pro-science max. I feel and think science should be financed ten times more. I approve of China’s gigantic efforts in science and technology. I also approve of, and I am all for, Gain of Function research, if done not too dangerously. However it was done dangerous at WIV, and the NIH knew it (or at least part of NIH knew it). As persons such as Dr. Fauci lied and dissembled about that deplorable situation, they engaged in various distracting shows throwing blame everywhere, but in the right direction: as was already known from a previous scientific commission, some of the most dangerous research on Earth was conducted at WIV under very unsafe conditions… And NIH financed it.

Fauci lied. On 7/27. 2021, a bipartisan powerful group of Senators started action on US funding of very dangerous biological research in China [1].

Gain Of Function research is a fundamental way forward, not just scientifically, but philosophically. It should not be the reserved province of all mighty clowns like Dr. Fauci, who did, indeed, lie.

***

[1] The United States must complete a thorough review of existing and prior U.S. government support or funding for research collaboration with the People Republic of China related to gain-of-function, synthetic biology, biotechnology, or other research areas that pose dual-use concerns,” the senators said. “U.S. taxpayer funding should not support any collaboration with PRC entities that pose health, economic, or security risks for the United States.

The senators said China “has demonstrated lax biosecurity standards, violated the International Health Regulations, attempted to steal intellectual property related to COVID-19 vaccines, and may be in violation of the Biological Weapons Convention,” arguing the U.S. “should not be partnering with or funding any country that exhibits these risk factors.

Western Leadership Caused One Million Dead With Covid… From Racist Disregard Of Japan

March 22, 2021

Leading Western countries made a number of giant mistakes with COVID. Many Western countries actually, following the policy in Wuhan, forbade people to go outside… even now in France people are limited to 10 kilometers in 20 departments… Yes, with half a billion people vaccinated worldwide, France and Germany and other European countries are in hard lockdowns, with few people vaccinated, an abysmal failure of the European Union. In Great Britain, the pandemic has been crushed, because half of the population is already vaccinated (thanks to one shot policy and the home-made Astra-Zeneca-Oxford, Trump financed vaccine).

Mistakes of Western leadership caused the death of more than one million (by comparing with how many people would have died, had the death rate being the same as in Japan… which it would have been, if one had learned from Japan, what Japan learned, from that ship). Those mistakes were entirely avoidable, if science, observation and reason had been deployed: Japanese experts determined very early on that the virus was airborne, as their own experts caught it while visiting that cruise ship, the Diamond Princess in Yokohama.

So the Japanese people was told by its government of AVOIDING the three “Cs”:

AVOID:

1 Closed spaces with poor ventilation.

2. Crowded places with many people nearby.

3. Close-contacts.

There was no mask mandate in Japan. Masks are not just ineffective, they can be outright dangerous, and most mask types have now been outlawed in Europe (one can see them in profusion in the USA; they can multiply COVID transmission by five when turning big droplets in aerosol too fine for any mask to stop). Moreover, masks make people feel secure and let them loiter in situations where they will get the virus if they stay around long enough. If you can smell cigarette smoke below your ten superposed masks, you can get COVID: the virus is the same size, 100 nanometers.  

Conclusion: Japan suffered less than 10,000 dead so far, less than 1% of the deaths of the USA and Europe combined… without any lockdowns. WITHOUT ANY LOCKDOWN: lockdowns themselves bring death, decrepitude, misery, economic and social collapse.

A recent New York Times article went through the experiment of room with window open, and room with window and HEPA filter (HEPA filters glue the virus by Van der Waals force). Conclusion: masks do nada. Window open works, and with the HEPA, no problem.

One student with COVID contaminates an entire room in minutes, and the masks will be as effective at stopping COVID as they are at stopping cigarette smoke. New York Times graphics and Harvard modelization.

The rule of at best idiotic, at worst financially corrupt experts in the West has caused one million dead, and probably ten times this damaged for life by the virus, let alone their families and enormous social and economic damage… Including for millions now with advanced cancer, and other deadly diseases, because hospitals were not functioning normally. 

Inequities should be brought up for insider trading with homicidal intent. Let me be clear: I was personally invested in some companies which, rightly, profited from the pandemic. By giving money to Moderna or BioNTech, say, ten years ago, investors made those companies possible. So, instead of having half a billion dead from the virus, we will get away with only a few million dead (right now, three millions). That’s fine and moral.

Investing in biotechnology has not been easy in the last decade or more. However, by February 2020, it became obvious that advancements in biotechnology were necessary. Soon Trump invested ten billion dollars in vaccine development after the CEO of Moderna, a French guy, told him he could mass produce a very effective vaccine in three months, using brand new science, mRNA tech.

Once again, great. At the time, doctor Deborah Birx, hero of AIDS, United States global AIDS coordinator for presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump between 2014 and 2020explained that masks would not work and why. Her reasons were cogent, and duplicated what the Japanese had said. 

This is how the West got COVID: from COVID gas and ineffective masks, plus the ideology of massive protection from a few layers of paper or cloth. COVIDIOCY and Interbeciles have been rampant, they killed. But were the experts corrupt? That is one question. The conclusion is that the public health experts were only expert at making mistakes. Socrates warned us against not being led by experts. But what about those with a good reputation at expertise, completely unjustified? The Japanese were led, for decades by criminals posing as experts, who could only be stopped with atomic bombs. They apparently learned to be more circumspect, careful, and modest with expertise…

Yet a number of experts, pressed for lockdowns and a mask mandate. The combination was bound to make the pandemic way worse. Just to make sure it would get even worse , countries such as France, following the monstrosities in Wuhan, forbid citizens to get out of their homes (except with what the Nazi military occupation government called “Aussweiss”… and even then just for an hour, a temporal restriction Nazis did not have). 

The worse the pandemic was going to get, the better for the companies trying to find treatments and develop vaccines. The question is this: how many of these experts were invested in biotechnology, pharmaceutical stocks? 

Was the petulant Dr. Fauci invested in such stocks? Or playing the smart idiot on TV, not afraid to contradict himself 100% within months, for all to see? It’s great to see an 80 years old act so juvenile… But not when millions die as a result.

Sometimes idiocy is a coverup for unfathomable nefariousness. Let’s not be naive, and ask for criminal inquiries. Were our experts simple idiots, or were they invested? Invested in making a bad situation way worse? As they did?

Refusing To Vaccinate: Are Our Experts Homicidal Cretins? Or Just Corrupt? Drunk On Power?

December 30, 2020

The Pfizer/BioNTech mRNA vaccine passed its class III trial with flying colors, more than 95% success rate (no symptoms, and basically no grave case of COVID). It was then authorized on an emergency basis. Forty millions doses were expected to be produced by the end of 2020. However 20 million doses were kept in reserve.

Why? To make sure the elite gets its second shot, thus superb immunity? We were indeed told that it was to make sure that there would be enough second doses a month later. The reasoning is, at best, idiotic: as production is ramping up, there certainly would be enough doses a month or two later. Actually the head of research and development at Pfizer, a woman, said exactly what I just said (but she has to be discrete).

Come to think of it, that reasoning, that shots have to be kept in reserve, is so blatantly idiotic it cannot be the truth. The Class III trial of that vaccine has shown that considerable protection from COVID appears after just ten days of the first dose (quickly around more than 50%, more than the flu vaccine). Presumably the “experts” had time to get informed of this significant fact. Although I suspect that they spend so much time with celebrities, plutocrats and power types or their stockbrokers, that they perhaps do not have enough time to read the latest science. (Not kidding: the esteemed Dr. Fauci had time for Kim Kardashian and no less than 36 hollywood and rapping celebrities; he was against banning travel, before he was for it, and against masks, before he was for them; hey, jumping all around like an illogical goat helps his fame…)

A friend of mine who is a top lawyer told me half the doses were kept in reserve to make sure that the 1%, the power brokers, the elite of politics, wealth and celebritism had enough vaccine to flaunt its privilege. 

More prosaically, why do some individuals aspire to so much power over others? Simply because that tells us, and them, how much more valuable those individuals are: they are worth saving and we are not. Their lives are so much more worthy. Let them have vaccines, while we do not. They are our gods, we shall pray at their feet, while they prey on us.

Watch, in places such as California, thirty-something teachers, who are paid full time, not to teach, because their unions refuse to teach, getting priority for COVID vaccinations. 

Kamala Harris and her husband, both 56 years old, are superior beings: they should get a vaccine they need 1,000 times less than an older person, who will then not get it, because the old and common do not deserve to live, but she does. You the commons, have to learn to be a worm with a smile…

US Vice President (“elect”) Kamala Harris is in perfect health, and 56 years old. She, and her 56 years old husband, received the coronavirus vaccine. People more than 65 years old, have 90 times higher probability of dying from COVID, & are not getting the vaccine, while relatively young super healthy politicians get it. Equality for all to see. We The People die, while our dictators do their best efforts to live, and flaunt it!

Friend Vikki Stefans objected: “She’s in Congress with a bunch of goofballs who attend unmasked WH parties though. I’d say the exposure risk is pretty high and the leadership example matters too. She DID let Joe go first!!”

Patrice Ayme replied:

The leadership of flaunting privilege? I know a high density living place with more than two thousand residents with a COVID outbreak. Many individuals therein are aged more than 80 years old. I asked several local authorities to get vaccinations authorized. They ignored my request: city hall said they did not worry about such things. The County Health Officer, prone to issue fascist orders of the nonsensical type, replied they had lots of requests… But my request was on behalf of the largest high rise in the entire 1.6 million inhabitant county, a Silicon Valley county full of single family homes with a median price above a million dollar. 

So twenty-five year old teachers who refuse to teach, and are living in single homes, are getting vaccinated, though. Half a mile away a high density situation just saw five hundred forty (540) COVID cases out of 540 residents, some elderly. No vaccines, a few deaths already. I say Ms Harris is the example of privilege, as is her privileged Big Law partner husband.

They show that the elite considers it important to tell us that they deserve to live, and we do not. Why is it so important? Because it is unfair, so it invites We The People to think of the guillotine. A conflict is created, and conflicts keep the otherwise mentally vacuous busy, providing a distraction from their ambulatory nihilism.

I suggested a few weeks ago to do only the first shots. Now Great Britain just opted for the common sense policy. From the New York Times:

Britain became the first country on Wednesday to give emergency authorization to the coronavirus vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford, opening a path for a cheap and easy-to-store shot that much of the world will rely on to help end the pandemic.

In a bold decision to accelerate vaccinations, a British government advisory body directed clinicians to give as many people as possible their first dose of a coronavirus vaccine, without reserving supplies for planned second doses.

Instead of administering the two shots within a month, clinicians will wait as long as 12 weeks to give people their second doses, the government said, a decision that applies to the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine as well as the Pfizer-BioNTech shot that Britain authorized early this month.

With the vaccination rollout moving slowly in both Britain and the United States, British officials were heeding calls to delay the second doses as a way of giving more people the partial protection of a single dose. Matt Hancock, the health secretary, said people would start receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine early next week.

The Oxford-AstraZeneca shot is poised to become the world’s dominant form of inoculation. At $3 to $4 a dose, it is a fraction of the cost of some other vaccines. And it can be shipped and stored at normal refrigeration temperatures for six months, rather than in the ultracold freezers required by rival vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, making it easier to administer to people in poorer and harder-to-reach parts of the world.

When given in two, full-strength doses, AstraZeneca’s vaccine showed 62 percent efficacy in clinical trials — considerably lower than the roughly 95 percent efficacy achieved by Pfizer and Moderna’s shots. For reasons scientists don’t yet understand, AstraZeneca’s vaccine showed 90 percent efficacy in a smaller group of volunteers who were given a half-strength initial dose.

[The latter point needs to be demonstrated with certainty… but is plausible…]

In Britain, Professor David Salisbury, formerly responsible for the country’s immunization program, has campaigned to delay the second shot until all high-risk people have had the first dose. After two weeks of declining infections, new cases have risen sharply in the U.K. since the beginning of December, apparently in part from a mutation making the virus 56% more transmissible.

On December 22, former long term U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair said that proceeding with the previously planned second-shot schedule would result in “colossal” damage in terms of infection rates, deaths and economic impact.

Genetic Freedom: Virus Mutating, Borders Closing

December 20, 2020

Several European countries closed their borders to Great Britain on 12/20/2020, because the SARS-Cov2 virus mutated in a form which is “70% more transmissible” say British authorities… which themselves applied a ferocious lockdown inside the UK. Now this was fully predictable.

In related news, analysis of old Viking remains seems to have revealed that they had smallpox (“variola”) but of a less lethal sort… a millennium or so, ago. Vikings are prefered, not because forensic doctors are systemic racist, but because corpses are best conserved in a cold climate. So smallpox adapted by becoming more lethal. Why? asked a lawyer friend of mine. Simple: as there are many people, a virus can afford to kill its host. And the more people, the more people can the virus kill, and thrive. A giant human population creates a giant ecological niche for lethal microbes.

One could say that virus and other lethal microbes are Gaia’s reaction to the human infection, my lawyer friend pointed out. Indeed. But the human infection is smart.

RNA vaccines are a GIANT plus. They were initially devised for cancer. Little advertised, a RNA vaccine ELIMINATED this extremely lethal RNA virus EBOLA in 2020 from the Congo (RDC). It was a minus 80 C vaccine… a little complex to transport in the wild tracks of the rainforest…

If RNA vaccines are made to work against cancer, they will be a testimony of the goodness of venture capital applied to science… There has been a tremendous ramp up in the venture capital and associate Intellectual Property and legal areas in the last ten years. The idea with cancer is that each individual cancer is unique (same for antibodies cocktails against COVID). Once specific surface proteins are identified with their messenger RNA, one envelops the whole thing with an irritant (“adjuvant”), and… voila! The immune system gets furious against the adjuvant and exterminate anything associated to it… in particular what is covered with the characteristic protein the mRNA coded for… Messenger RNA vaccines are eminently adjustable, and following the mutations of the virus should not be a problem… Once the present stock of vaccines is injected…

Universe, here we come. Gaia, your meek viruses shall not stop us. Perversely, indeed, they will help us vanquish cancer, and acquire GENETIC FREEDOM.

Masks Worse Than No Mask For “Virus Nasal Retention”.

December 18, 2020

Wearing a mask could be more dangerous than not wearing one at all when it comes to warding off COVID-19, in realistic setting, one more study has found. And the study was done in conditions tweaked towards minimizing viral upload!

This modelling study focuses on surgical masks, which surgeons have successfully used for many decades. It does not mean surgical masks don’t work for surgery: they do. Indeed, surgeons use their masks just once and have been trained in their use, which is most particular (don’t touch the mask with non sterilized hands, and that just once, etc…). That newest troubling study was published Tuesday in the Physics of Fluids. The New York Post talked about it the next day. Then the article was removed by Physics Of Fluid. Big Pluto Brother had apparently taken umbrage.

After I made fun of the censorship on the Internet, the article re-appeared (with politically correct sanctimonious tweaks added). Here is the start of “Effects of mask-wearing on the inhalability and deposition of airborne SARS-CoV-2 aerosols in human upper airway“:

ABSTRACT: Even though face masks are well accepted as tools useful in reducing COVID-19 transmissions, their effectiveness in reducing viral loads in the respiratory tract is unclear. As I had been saying… It gets better:
“The viral load in the nose was particularly examined with and without a mask. Results show that when breathing without a mask, air enters the mouth and nose through specific paths. When wearing a mask, however, air enters the mouth and nose through the entire surface of the mask at lower speeds, which favors the inhalation of ambient aerosols into the nose.” Got that? “… wearing a mask… FAVORS the inhalation of ambient aerosols into the nose… And where does that go? In the exposed neurons of the olfactory bulb. The COVID virus infects neurons directly.

From the conclusion: “The results of this study show that wearing a zero-filtration mask can lead to a higher deposition rate of particles smaller than 10 µm (i.e., PM10) in the upper airway for all flow rates (15 l/min–60 l/min) and mask resistance matrices considered. This seemingly counterintuitive observation may be attributed to the altered pressure and airflow fields caused by the mask, which further changes the inhalability of the particles and subsequent deposition in the upper airways. The overall lower speeds of the respirable particles after wearing a mask, as well as an increased area of respiration, can increase the chance of respirable particles to land on the face or being inhaled into the mouth and nose. This unexpected finding raises an alarm that wearing masks with very low filtration efficiencies may lead to a higher chance of deposition of ambient aerosols and thus can do more harm than protection. In this study, we assumed a 65% filtration efficiency of the mask, which is typical for a three-layer surgical mask, for all particle sizes….

And still better, and still clearer:

The finding that particle dosimetry can be substantially different with and without a mask calls for cautions in health risk assessment with face coverings. The practice of estimating airway doses with a mask by simply scaling the doses without a mask can introduce significant errors. Furthermore, current mask filtration efficiency (FE) testing, for instance, using TSI 8130, only provides an integrated FE value for polydisperse aerosols and does not differentiate FEs among particle sizes. It is well expected that the mask FE varies significantly with particle sizes. Even though this study adopted an identical FE (65%) for all particles considered, further studies with a mask are warranted to include the mask FEs that are specific to different particle sizes. Likewise, complementary experimental studies are needed to measure the particle-size-dependent FEs for different types of masks.The nose has a unique role in this COVID-19 pandemic for several reasons. It is the first physical barrier of our body to keep ambient aerosols from getting into the respiratory tract; unlike the mouth, the downward nostrils can effectively prevent large particles from being inhaled due to their large inertia. The nasal mucus and immune cells constitute the second line of defense against invading viruses.48 However, the nasal goblet secretory cells are also one of the three confirmed binding sites for COVID-19 viruses, where two necessary enzymes for cell invasion, ACE2 (angiotensin-converting enzyme 2) and TMPRSS2 (type II transmembrane serine protease), coexist.47 This explains the usage of nasal swabs in COVID testing.46 The other two sites with these two enzymes coexisting are the surface epithelial cells of the alveoli and the ileal absorptive cells in the small intestine.47 In this study, we found that the protective efficacy of a mask for the nasal airway decreases at lower inhalation flow rates. Particularly at 15 l/min, the nasal retention of 1 µm–3 µm ambient aerosols is even higher by wearing a 65% filtration mask than without a mask at all. This situation is expected to worsen for flow rates lower than 15 l/min or wearing a mask with lower filtration efficiencies.”

Now wait… What is the normal respiratory volume per minute under mild exercise? Twelve liters per minute, thus well below the threshold above. It is lower at rest: 8 to 5 liters per minute. So the research article above established that the “NASAL RETENTION AT one to three micronsis EVEN HIGHER BY WEARING A SURGICAL MASK THAN WITHOUT A MASK AT ALL.” So the person wearing a surgical mask is gathering more coronavirus into the nose than if a person wearing no mask! And this is with particle ten times larger in diameter and one thousand times bigger in volume than the SARS-CoV2 virus. Below one micron, the FE, the Filtration Efficiency, of masks surgical or N95 decreases…

A new three-layer surgical mask is 65 percent efficient in filtering “particles” in the air — but when used, that number drops to 25 percent, according to the study. By “particles’ what the researchers mean is 2.5 micron droplets… Thus 25 times larger in diameter than the SARS-CoV2 coronavirus (which is only .1 micron across), and thus more than ten thousand times more voluminous than said virus. As I have explained, experimental results, and, independently, a bit of thinking, suggest that the virus does not hesitate to discard orders from the authorities, and offends by travelling on smaller fomites. That implies that only HEPA filters can stop the coronavirus in enclosed spaces.

Researchers from the University of Massachusetts Lowell and California Baptist University say that masks slow down airflow, making people more susceptible to breathing in particles — and a dirty face mask can’t effectively filter out the tiniest of droplets.

HEPA filters and UV Cs can completely eliminate the virus. Masks cannot. Worse, increasing evidence show masks seem to make the situation worse. Indeed, the problem is whether masks are so ineffective that they are worse than NO masks. The grossest, thus first order, epidemiological evidence says so.

To reach their findings, researchers used a computer model of a person wearing a pleated three-layer surgical mask to track how the face covering affected airflow and how particles passed through. They also looked at how the tiny droplets settled onto the face, in the airway and where they land in the nose, pharynx or deep lung. They found that wearing a mask “significantly slows down” airflow, reducing a mask’s efficacy and making a person more susceptible to inhaling aerosols into the nose — where SARS-CoV-2 likes to lurk.

In this study, we found that the protective efficacy of a mask for the nasal airway decreases at lower inhalation flow rates,” the study said. Basically, slow inflows unable the virus to settle in what it loves, nasal cavity recesses… The pleats of a face mask also significantly affect airflow patterns and their efficacy changes with more use, the researchers found. The team plans to study further how mask shapes affect protection from COVID-19.

We hope public health authorities strengthen the current preventative measures to curb COVID-19 transmission, like choosing a more effective mask, wearing it properly for the highest protection, and avoid using an excessively used or expired surgical mask,” said Xi.

One more demonstration of the inefficiency of masks is that the French president, Macron, got COVID on December 16, 2020. Macron always wears a mask in public. Who has a vested interest in going on with that lethal Mask Masquerade? Well not just those invested in Biotech stocks without any revenue (that’s a good thing), but also those who lied about masks so much, they cannot go back without losing face, and maybe their clout (that comprises many politicians and Western health authorities).

As I said, the only way to curb the virus, aside from brutal medieval style lockdowns, is to wash enclosed spaces with Ultra Violet C and HEPA filters, and avoid the “3 Cs”. Some countries (Singapore) have enacted this.

In related news, Alphabet Inc’s Google on Thursday faced its third major lawsuit as a group of 38 U.S. states and territories filed an antitrust complaint accusing Google. These lawsuits were launched by the Trump administration… After being delayed nearly a year by the Impeachment proceedings against President Trump… There had been a deal with Congress to institute such lawsuit, but the hoax that Trump acted improperly in Ukraine (to which he sent anti-tank missiles, which turned out to be more effective at stopping Putin’s “Little Green Men” than the MREs, Meals Ready to Eat, that Obama had send to the Ukrainian army…). Other lawsuits have accused Facebook to have colluded with Google… While Facebook is alleging to the European Union that Apple is acting as a monopoly of its own (which of course it is).

Those news are related because the social media outfits and the other plutocratically owned, or funded, media are entirely culprit of the failure of thinking out there. Obama revered Reagan: and the “left” reveres Obama, thus Reagan. What did Reagan do for rationality, let alone the “left” ever? Still, Reagan nationalized thousands of banks, and Obama, none, in a much worse banking crisis. This has been rendered possible by a population which has replaced feeling as ordered by the masters come before the most basic logic, let alone observational capability. Yesterday, California had more than 62,000 new cases of Sars-CoV2… And more than 400 dead. With mandatory mask law, amply demonstrating that masks are part of the problem; without masks, from a similar COVID occurence density, the same lockdown decrease the epidemic in Spring. I seem to be the only one not wearing a mask outside of food stores (nearly the only sort of store one can go to these days).

Amusingly I made the mistake of going to Whole Foods two days ago. The gigantic line was extremely COVID dangerous: enclosed space, vast throng of masked cretins breathing each other’s air. I will not go back, but clearly this sort of crowding is exactly what not to do.. And it should be illegal. But Amazon (which owns Whole Foods) is one of the corrupt “Democratic” leadership sacred cows (with Microsoft, to whom Obama gave the “Medal of Freedom” (as Bill and Melinda), Apple, Facebook, Alphabet, etc…) it can do what it wants.

It does not please me to write such articles. I do it as a public service, as so many people are dying, just because the “experts” in command are more like incompetent idiots flaunting their furious superiority by posing as higher beings who know more by thinking less.

Life … is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

― William Shakespeare, Macbeth. Well, not exactly, this is MacBeth talking. Macbeth killed to become king (OK, he didn’t kill three millions in Iraq). So this is a nihilistic general, now king, talking. Life, according to our masters, is a tale signifying nothing, told by idiots. As observed. Most of these deaths, as I explained, were easy to avoid, had one avoided the “3Cs”: Closed spaces, Crowded places, Close proximity. So why did the idiots want that massacre? Precisely because the masters are trying to inure us to the notion of a meaningless life, told by idiots.

The Biden transition team is stuffed, up to the highest level, with big monopolistic tech executives and ex big monopolistic tech members, and they are obviously there to cash in the huge sums of money they put into Biden’s campaign. Those masters of propaganda did well for themselves, and bad for civilization in recent years. They will be anxious to stop the many lawsuits now launched by governments against their monopolies. One of the Trump administration lawsuits alleges violations of Labor Law, no less. Progressives should react while they still can. As the mask fiasco shows, common sense has disappeared: thanks to the mandated mask law in California, the lockdown is proving ineffective, and COVID has exploded there. Previously, without lockdown and no mandate masks, new daily COVID cases in California peaked at 12,000 in July. This week daily cases reached above 62,000 in California, in spite of a mandatory lockdown… Obviously, because of the mask mandate… What else?

But the tech monopolies block that information and reflection…

P/S: The essay above referred mostly to how masks protects from absorbing the virus (answer: they don’t). The question of emission is different, and was treated in other essays. Basically masks functions as emission centers, under jaw motion, the incrusted fomites laden with virus fly away and stay suspended… For hours or until UVs do them in… which doesn’t happen inside, in enclosed spaces, as UVs from sunlight do not reach there! Brains… don’t leave home without them…

Bad Lies Matter: Fresh Air, Not Masked Air, Is How Japan And Many Other Countries Defeated COVID. The “3 Cs”.

December 16, 2020

Abstract: It was obvious since the beginning that SARS-CoV2, the famous coronavirus, was AIRBORNE. That this rather trivial evidence, and how to remedy it, was not noticed is a testimony to the astounding grip plutocratic media exerts on simple Western minds… of the increasing mentally retarded type

Mmathematics scores are collapsing in France, a related notion: that the West is getting dumber is exemplified by COVID; generally East Asian countries dealt with the pandemic in a very smart way, using the “3Cs”, to counteract the airborne nature of the virus. As I will explain.

Japan, in particular, took the appropriate measures… All astute observers in the West should have been able to see it. But are there astute observers left in the West? Westerners see only what their masters tell them to see, just as they feel only what their masters tell them to see, and think only what their “philanthropic” masters tell them to think. Thus, the plebs, in Europe or the US was unaware of the Japanese example. Now Western leaders, for example in healthcare could not possibly have been unaware of what Japan did. Still they refused to follow Japan. Why? Are Europe and the US not just stupid, but also blind? Or, to follow the racial obsession of the lunatic pseudo-left (manipulated by plutocrats), is it skin color racism? Racism? Yellow Lives Don’t Matter, whatever they do, even if it saves lives? What else? Surely, they did not try to win an election that way?

***

Idiotic disinformation is rampant, insulting, racist. In their latest delirious twist, the masked propagandists identified anti-vaccines idiots with those who have carefully read the literature on masks, astutely appraised the history of the pandemic, on a worldwide basis, and found that masks were part of the problem rather than the solution. 

Wait indeed for “MASK LUNG“, a future disease, when all those little masks fibers in the lungs will cause fibrosis of said lungs… Lung fibrosis (“COPD”) has no cure and is one of the most frequent diseases…  

One would think the public smarter in its capacity of observation: March-April: no masks, epidemics under control. Fall: mandatory masks (in Europe, California, etc. ). Epidemic completely out of control, in EU, US. The reasons have been exposed in recent SCIENTIFIC articles: masks work mostly in the medical domain, they give a false sense of safety.  

It should not be hard to understand… Everywhere in Europe and North America, the pandemic exploded when masks were mandated for the public. At best, masks were useless, at worst, they contributed to the pandemic, this is what the graph above says, on the face of it. And there are excellent reasons for the latter, supported by observations.

So why the astounding death toll in Europe and the USA? Why the deliberate avoidance of Japanese lessons on COVID? Western racists and bigots, white lives supremacists, have nothing to learn from Japan?…Indeed, many countries suffered little impact from SARS-CoV2, with few deaths and no slowing down of the economy. But the white plutocrats who have all the media, academia and “factcheckers” on their payrolls, by definition of “plutocracy” have devilish logic. Remember that their number one objective was to bring back in control the actors of the implementation of financial plutocracy of the 1990s. It is not just that they are systematically racist, and look down on the Japanese.

Japan had only 2,500 dead… with the world’s oldest population. South Korea, 600 dead, and a death rate per 100,000 roughly one hundredth of that of the UK, US, France. Taiwan had only seven dead (7)… That’s 1/5000 the death rate of Belgium. Yes, less than 5,000 times less for Taiwan than Belgium… 

Simple. Obvious. Obvious since February, when the Diamond Princess, a large cruise ship with more than 700 COVID cases berthed in Yokohama. Then, top, world class infectious disease Japanese experts with the best PPE masks. shields and training available anywhere in the world, went on board the ship. Many of these superlative experts caught COVID. The conclusion was obvious, and drawn immediately: the virus was airborne, masks were of very limited utility. The Wuhan coronavirus, SARS2 attaches itself to ultralight fomites, and can stay up in the air forever. Recent studies, published by the CDC have shown that the virus can stay up more than 16 hours with no sign of falling down (references are on CDC website referred to in my main essay on the subject, MASK MASQUERADE KILLS). 

An airborne virus cannot be stopped by standard medical masks. This is why avoiding confined air and crowded places is crucial: safety is a matter of breathing fresh air, not of stopping droplets. 

Most countries which fought COVID successfully didn’t mandate shutdowns or social-distancing orders. Instead they encouraged people to avoid the 3 “C’s”: Closed spaces with poor ventilation, Crowded places with groups of people, and Close-contact settings.

Why these simple truths, that the virus is airborne, and that crowds and enclosed spaces should be avoided has been known since February have not reached the public in the EU and US is a testimony to the racist mind control the plutocratic media exerts. Oh yes, it has been known in a sort of abstract way… However the mask mythology has insisted that the virus was carried by droplets…. Thus has differectly contradicted the fact that the virus was airborne: being airborne requires for prevention solutions which mask wearing contradicts.

So what of the systemic racism accusation? Well, clearly, Western medical authorities did not take seriously Japanese authorities: if they had, they would have adopted their solution. At first sight, it looks like anti-Japanese racism so strong that the systemic racists prefer to die, breathing viruses, while practicing voodoo masking, brandishing pseudo-science even the ignorant can understand, as ordered by greedy politicians on the take… 

Result? A few million dead. And a considerable augmentation of fascism and stupidity. And spread of disease. Yesterday I was in a park, running uphill. A tall white man in uniform (not law enforcement) screamed at me:”Go back! You are not wearing a mask! You are spreading disease!“. He moved towards me in a threatening way. There was nobody around, besides him; after I ran away from him, I met no one for miles, a full hour. This is big park. Some trees are adorned with automatic cameras of the “Mountain Lion Project“. I had a long way to go, I was seriously winded… And it would have been dangerous to stop, the man was obviously deranged and violent. What to do when confronted with such maniacal behavior? Well, have the courage to tell a bit of the truth. So I replied, while fleeing:”You are a fascist!“.

Speaking of spread of disease, I went later to a “Whole Foods” market (owned by Amazon). It was stuffed with slaves purchasing food for the wealthy of the hills. There were not enough cashiers. So I line snaked through the store, among the aisles. It was one hundred meters (330 feet) long. A crowded, closed space: perfect for spreading COVID. A few blocks away there is a recent COVID cluster, with hundreds of cases (officially 540 cases, at that racetrack employer, Berkeley decided). Exactly what to avoid (I did not see the line when I entered, from the way the store is set-up).

To end on a positive note: thanks to COVID, RNA vaccines made a breakthrough… they can be used against cancer, or so the hope goes, that’s why the whole technology was initially developed. Ironically, then, COVID may end up, by accelerating biotechnology, saving much more lives than it robbed…
