I think the COVIOD-19 lockdown is killing more people than it is saving.


I’m going to start out by posting the CDC’s estimated survival rates, by age, for people who contract COVID-19:





Source: Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)


0 to 19: 99.997%


20 to 49: 99.98%


50 to 69: 99.5%


70+: 94.6%


For most age groups, the survival rate is quite high. In my opinion, this does not justify a lockdown of the general population.


Now let’s take a look at my many reasons for thinking that the lockdown is killing more people than it is saving:


This study claims that the lockdown is destroying 10 times as many Quality Adjusted Life Years as it is saving:

Childhood vaccine rates for preventable diseases like measles and whooping cough have fallen during the COVID-19 pandemic, raising the possibility of an additional health crisis.


In New York City… the number of vaccine doses administered from March 23 to May 9 fell 63 percent compared with the same period last year.


In children older than 2 years, it fell 91 percent…


… Doctors offices have been closed…


… The numbers in New York match a national trend…


… from mid-March to mid-April, doctors in the federally funded Vaccines for Children program for the uninsured ordered about 2.5 million fewer doses of all routine non-influenza vaccines and 250,000 fewer doses of measles-containing vaccines compared to the same period in 2019…

Source: https://www.timesofisrael.com/end-a...nnecessary-hebrew-university-researchers-say/


A scientific paper states:


Background: The pandemic caused by COVID-19 has forced governments to implement strict social mitigation strategies to reduce the morbidity and mortality from acute infections. These strategies however carry a significant risk for mental health which can lead to increased short-term and long-term mortality and is currently not included in modelling the impact of the pandemic. Methods: We used years of life lost (YLL) as the main outcome measure as applied to Switzerland as an exemplar. We focused on suicide, depression, alcohol use disorder, childhood trauma due to domestic violence, changes in marital status and social isolation as these are known to increase YLL in the context of imposed restriction in social contact and freedom of movement. We stipulated a minimum duration of mitigation of 3 months based on current public health plans. Results: The study projects that the average person would suffer 0.205 YLL due to psychosocial consequence of COVID-19 mitigation measures. However, this loss would be entirely borne by 2.1% of the population, who will suffer an average 9.79 YLL. Conclusions: The results presented here are likely to underestimate the true impact of the mitigation strategies on YLL. However, they highlight the need for public health models to expand their scope in order to provide better estimates of the risks and benefits of mitigation.

Slowing the coronavirus is speeding the spread of other diseases. Many mass immunization efforts worldwide were halted this spring to prevent spread of the virus at crowded inoculation sites. The consequences have been alarming… cargo flights with vaccine supplies were halted… Now, diphtheria is appearing in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal. Cholera is in South Sudan, Cameroon, Mozambique, Yemen and Bangladesh. A mutated strain of poliovirus has been reported in more than 30 countries. And measles is flaring around the globe, including in Bangladesh, Brazil, Cambodia, Central African Republic, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Nepal, Nigeria and Uzbekistan.

Dr. Dan Wohlgelernter said, “What we needed to do was not lock down all of society. Not shut down schools. Not shut down all businesses. You needed to protect the elderly. Particularly the elderly in the nursing homes. It’s a small segment of our population. We could have allowed the rest of the population to continue with their lives, take adequate precautions but not be completely shut down. The cost of the shut down in terms of the physical, emotional, and psychological health of people is enormous. We’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg of people who have been shut-in. Who’ve lost their businesses. Who are facing depression. Who are facing issues of mental health because of the consequences. This should never happen again. If we ever face this situation again we need to learn the lessons from the mistakes and policies that were implemented.”

The chief effect of school closures is to hurt students. In St. Paul, Minnesota, where schools have been mostly closed since March, 40 percent of the students are failing this quarter—double the normal rate. In the Dallas public schools, which closed in March and reopened late this fall, recent tests revealed that half of the students have regressed in mathematics since last year, and that’s probably typical of the “learning loss” that will have long-lasting effects on students around the world. Economists at the World Bank estimate that the spring closures will ultimately reduce the affected students’ lifetime earnings by 5 percent—a loss totaling $10 trillion worldwide. Extrapolating from the well-established effects of education and income on life expectancy, another team of researchers calculates that the springtime school closures in the United States will shorten students’ lives by a cumulative total of more than five million years—more years of life than were lost to the pandemic in the spring.

We also predict that the shock will disproportionately affect African-Americans and women, over a short horizon, while the effects for white men will unfold over longer horizons. These figures translate in more than 0.8 million additional deaths over the next 15 years.

WTF. All that for something you could have wrapped up in two paragraphs?
Again, what are these lockdowns you speak of? What state or what place has completely
locked their population down? I've been out and about here in NH since the end of June, 2020.

Coronavirus pandemic could push 122 million to brink of starvation: Oxfam

Dr. Dan Wohlgelernter said, “What we needed to do was not lock down all of society. Not shut down schools. Not shut down all businesses. You needed to protect the elderly. Particularly the elderly in the nursing homes. It’s a small segment of our population. We could have allowed the rest of the population to continue with their lives, take adequate precautions but not be completely shut down. The cost of the shut down in terms of the physical, emotional, and psychological health of people is enormous. We’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg of people who have been shut-in. Who’ve lost their businesses. Who are facing depression. Who are facing issues of mental health because of the consequences. This should never happen again. If we ever face this situation again we need to learn the lessons from the mistakes and policies that were implemented.”

The chief effect of school closures is to hurt students. In St. Paul, Minnesota, where schools have been mostly closed since March, 40 percent of the students are failing this quarter—double the normal rate. In the Dallas public schools, which closed in March and reopened late this fall, recent tests revealed that half of the students have regressed in mathematics since last year, and that’s probably typical of the “learning loss” that will have long-lasting effects on students around the world. Economists at the World Bank estimate that the spring closures will ultimately reduce the affected students’ lifetime earnings by 5 percent—a loss totaling $10 trillion worldwide. Extrapolating from the well-established effects of education and income on life expectancy, another team of researchers calculates that the springtime school closures in the United States will shorten students’ lives by a cumulative total of more than five million years—more years of life than were lost to the pandemic in the spring.

A scientific paper states:


We estimate the size of the COVID-19-relatedunemployment shock to be between 2 and 5 times larger than the typical unemployment shock, depending on race and gender, resulting in a significant increase in mortality rates and drop in life expectancy. We also predict that the shock will disproportionately affect African-Americans and women, over a short horizon, while the effects for white men will unfold over longer horizons. These figures translate in more than 0.8 million additional deaths over the next 15 years.

Again, what are these lockdowns you speak of? What state or what place has completely
locked their population down? I've been out and about here in NH since the end of June, 2020.

There is no state, city, or municipality that is completely locked down. If you don't like lockdowns, fine. All I was pointing out was
that you didn't need an entire web page to convey that. On the subject itself, if Republicans, conservatives, the alt-right, the virus deniers,
the virus hoaxers, the anti-vaxxers, Trump supporters, and any other moron who thinks this is a "plandemic" would just shut the fuck
up and do the right thing (distance, mask, stop gathering in crowds), then restrictions wouldn't be necessary. But no, children will be

Is Germ Theory True? – A Starter Kit To Debunk Coronavirus

The following document is essentially my personal collection of resources and research notes on these topics. I started keeping this list in March 2020. Over time, it has morphed into a sort of “starter kit” for those that want to begin exploring germ theory and related topics.

Specific Notes:

• The list isn’t (yet) organized by topic or doctor, author or researcher.
• The list is not comprehensive or complete by any means. This is a living document and is always under development. I am always working on “culling” the list to make it more focused, on topic, and readable. I have a lot of links I still need to add. I will send out an updated version to everyone who has requested this when I feel this is more “complete”.
• The list is in no particular order.
• To see the BOOK LIST, scroll to the end

I hope this list helps you in some way.

I am sorry for you and may be to late. But for those that still subscribe to Germ Theory, here is a great doctor to listen to.

DR. RYAN COLE, a Medical Doctor in Idaho speaks about the Covid-19 corona virus and about the mRNA vaccine which is not a vaccine but a gene modifier which is an experimental treatment. More importantly the doctor talks about the great importance of vitamin D and how it has a big impact on the health of your immune system. He also talks about how safe and very effective Ivermectin is for treating Covid-19 and new viral variants that would arise. The mRNA jabs killed all animals in animal trials of the past, and animals share a majority of the same DNA as humans do. Common Sense tells us shots that are bad for them are generally bad for us, medications that are good for them are good good for us. Humans are animals too. He also mentions about how masks do nothing to protect you from viruses and are useless for that purpose. Please share this video with everyone.

Psychosis is defined as impaired contact with reality. Educated, rational people have stopped using critical thinking. Acting out of fear.

First of all, the SARS CoV-2 virus has never been isolated - no one has ever looked at an intact SARS CoV=2 virus under an electron microscope - they're all computer generated, cut and paste samples. Secondly, Dr. Kary Mullis, who got the Noble Prize in chemistry for inventing the PCR test says that "We all contain everything", meaning that we are all carries of SARS CoV-2 and countless other viruses. Thirdly, contagion is a theory, not fact.

The official narrative is a heady mix of media propaganda, censorship, government and WHO corruption and spin doctoring (aka lies); trading on general public ignorance about everything and anything on the subject of health, 5G and big Pharma medicine plus the machinations and hidden agenda of the vaccine mafia. This accounts for the cognitive dissonance of the masses and how it is possible to convince joe public that a relatively benign infection with a mortality risk of 0.01% for the majority in reasonably good health is a deadly virus for us all, while the same innocent citizens willingly submit to a medical intervention which has resulted in $4 billion paid in vaccine damages since 1988.

From my blog:


I think the COVID-19 lockdown is killing more people than it is saving. Here are my many reasons for thinking such a thing. Updated for March 26, 2021.

By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)


March 26, 2021


I think the COVIOD-19 lockdown is killing more people than it is saving.


I’m going to start out by posting the CDC’s estimated survival rates, by age, for people who contract COVID-19:





Source: Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)


0 to 19: 99.997%


20 to 49: 99.98%


50 to 69: 99.5%


70+: 94.6%


For most age groups, the survival rate is quite high. In my opinion, this does not justify a lockdown of the general population.


Now let’s take a look at my many reasons for thinking that the lockdown is killing more people than it is saving:


This study claims that the lockdown is destroying 10 times as many Quality Adjusted Life Years as it is saving:

A report by the United Nations cites the predicted harm that will happen to tens of millions of children in low income countries as a result of the COVID-19 global wide shutdown.

Childhood vaccine rates for preventable diseases like measles and whooping cough have fallen during the COVID-19 pandemic, raising the possibility of an additional health crisis.


In New York City… the number of vaccine doses administered from March 23 to May 9 fell 63 percent compared with the same period last year.


In children older than 2 years, it fell 91 percent…


… Doctors offices have been closed…


… The numbers in New York match a national trend…


… from mid-March to mid-April, doctors in the federally funded Vaccines for Children program for the uninsured ordered about 2.5 million fewer doses of all routine non-influenza vaccines and 250,000 fewer doses of measles-containing vaccines compared to the same period in 2019…

The global lockdown was put into place based on the bogus, false, and extremely inaccurate Imperial College model.


Sweden did not have a lockdown.


Experts, who cited the Imperial College model, predicted that Sweden would have 40,000 COVID-19 deaths by May 1.


The actual number was 2,769.


The same bogus Imperial College model was used to implement the lockdowns for the rest of the world.

Source: End all restrictions, they were unnecessary, Hebrew University researchers say


A scientific paper states:


Background: The pandemic caused by COVID-19 has forced governments to implement strict social mitigation strategies to reduce the morbidity and mortality from acute infections. These strategies however carry a significant risk for mental health which can lead to increased short-term and long-term mortality and is currently not included in modelling the impact of the pandemic. Methods: We used years of life lost (YLL) as the main outcome measure as applied to Switzerland as an exemplar. We focused on suicide, depression, alcohol use disorder, childhood trauma due to domestic violence, changes in marital status and social isolation as these are known to increase YLL in the context of imposed restriction in social contact and freedom of movement. We stipulated a minimum duration of mitigation of 3 months based on current public health plans. Results: The study projects that the average person would suffer 0.205 YLL due to psychosocial consequence of COVID-19 mitigation measures. However, this loss would be entirely borne by 2.1% of the population, who will suffer an average 9.79 YLL. Conclusions: The results presented here are likely to underestimate the true impact of the mitigation strategies on YLL. However, they highlight the need for public health models to expand their scope in order to provide better estimates of the risks and benefits of mitigation.

Coronavirus pandemic could push 122 million to brink of starvation: Oxfam

Dr. Dan Wohlgelernter said, “What we needed to do was not lock down all of society. Not shut down schools. Not shut down all businesses. You needed to protect the elderly. Particularly the elderly in the nursing homes. It’s a small segment of our population. We could have allowed the rest of the population to continue with their lives, take adequate precautions but not be completely shut down. The cost of the shut down in terms of the physical, emotional, and psychological health of people is enormous. We’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg of people who have been shut-in. Who’ve lost their businesses. Who are facing depression. Who are facing issues of mental health because of the consequences. This should never happen again. If we ever face this situation again we need to learn the lessons from the mistakes and policies that were implemented.”

The chief effect of school closures is to hurt students. In St. Paul, Minnesota, where schools have been mostly closed since March, 40 percent of the students are failing this quarter—double the normal rate. In the Dallas public schools, which closed in March and reopened late this fall, recent tests revealed that half of the students have regressed in mathematics since last year, and that’s probably typical of the “learning loss” that will have long-lasting effects on students around the world. Economists at the World Bank estimate that the spring closures will ultimately reduce the affected students’ lifetime earnings by 5 percent—a loss totaling $10 trillion worldwide. Extrapolating from the well-established effects of education and income on life expectancy, another team of researchers calculates that the springtime school closures in the United States will shorten students’ lives by a cumulative total of more than five million years—more years of life than were lost to the pandemic in the spring.

A scientific paper states:


We estimate the size of the COVID-19-relatedunemployment shock to be between 2 and 5 times larger than the typical unemployment shock, depending on race and gender, resulting in a significant increase in mortality rates and drop in life expectancy. We also predict that the shock will disproportionately affect African-Americans and women, over a short horizon, while the effects for white men will unfold over longer horizons. These figures translate in more than 0.8 million additional deaths over the next 15 years.

anyone have the Cliff notes?
Yeah. Govt should provide guidance but not take away people’s rights. Businesses have the right to say no shirt no service. Govt should not. These lockdowns caused more harm than good to many young people and to many who became depressed, alcohol reliant, drug abusers, etc.

When you g
what are these lockdowns you speak of? What state or what place has completely
locked their population down? I've been out and about here in NH since the end of June, 2020.

Here in Pittsburgh, the public schools are still closed.

In Michigan, they arrested a restaurant owner for opening his restaurant.

When you got that large a group involved it’s obvious the elite are plotting against us with their depopulation agenda.

WTF. All that for something you could have wrapped up in two paragraphs?

Have you been living on another planet? lol!



There is no state, city, or municipality that is completely locked down. If you don't like lockdowns, fine. All I was pointing out was
that you didn't need an entire web page to convey that. On the subject itself, if Republicans, conservatives, the alt-right, the virus deniers,
the virus hoaxers, the anti-vaxxers, Trump supporters, and any other moron who thinks this is a "plandemic" would just shut the fuck
up and do the right thing (distance, mask, stop gathering in crowds), then restrictions wouldn't be necessary. But no, children will be
children. If that's the case, don't bitch when you're treated like one.
You deflect, distract, insult, and lie...because you KNOW you're full of shit.
