Many things were useless which we did do during this pandemic - we lost about 60,000 people without any real need to have to lose them for example - but this was "learning by doing". The ´main mistake was to think covid-19 had been more harmless than it really was.
no commentWhat does any of this have to do with the numbers being skewed?
And it being unknown if influenza was a big factor.
And we've known how PCR tests work for a long time....They were never supposed to be used as a diagnostic in any context.
Those numbers can only come down. And the attribution of other illnesses can only go up. We were calling all respiratory problems covid because of these terribly inaccurate "tests"
The fact you don't know what the PCR rate used in german labs is says all you need to know. You don't know anything about the pandemic.
of course not, because you have no fking clue. You are a parrot, and can't think for yourself. You fail your own advice. To think!!!!!no comment

Based on extensive review and analysis, there is no question in my mind that healthy people should not be wearing surgical or cloth masks. – BY JIM MEEHAN, MDinlandnwreport.com
Dude, that bullshit. It's not what the article states.There is no doubt that some of what we called covid deaths was the flu
Influenza did not just disappear
It's doctors weren't diagnosing correctly. Because they were using very over sensitive PCR tests with a massive false positive rate.
Correlation Between 3790 Quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction–Positives Samples and Positive Cell Cultures, Including 1941 Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 IsolatesTO THE EDITOR—The outbreak of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic due to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) was declaredacademic.oup.com
So while I'm pretty sure there is a nasty cold running around. Our counts are most certainly in doubt. You could easily slash 50k+ deaths off our count. Possibly much more than that. PCR tests at the cycles we run them are vastly vastly over sensitive. The upside to that is. We never miss a case. The downside is there is a HUGE false positive rate.
So all the other colds like rhino viruses, flu, and other random shit killed people last year. We just didn't know it
Whatever the final number the CDC says is for this year. Will be revised in later years.
Dude, that bullshit. It's not what the article states.
The learning is minute by minute and goes back and forth in this case. This virus response is and has been from the start guided by politics and not science.It is a learning experience.
In modern broadband times. And, it is right-wingers who are more political and resorting to more conspiracy and false information to obstruct more effective countermeasures against the pandemic.The learning is minute by minute and goes back and forth in this case. This virus response is and has been from the start guided by politics and not science.
