Good Riddance to the Chinese Virus; Economy Rebound$ believes that the Chinese virus is dying off, that it has run its cycle. Many US states are moving back to normal operations while the hot and sunny Summer weather is going to go a long way to killing off the virus. Even the media hysteria about the virus has died down.

Is the virus dangerous? Well, yes and no. It can be very harmful to elderly people but appears to be much less so to younger and healthier people. Even a report from National Public Radio (see below) indicates that the virus is much less virile than thought.

The US economy never should have been shut down to begin with. The alarmist projections of 2.1 million US deaths was vastly overblown. The British academic Neil Ferguson who gave us this prediction could not explain why so many of his projections were wrong.

Even the current death toll in the US is being totally exaggerated. It is being reported all over the country that tens of thousands of “virus deaths” have not been confirmed as coming from the virus itself, but were simply very old and sick people who were finally killed by the virus, or people were reported to have died of the virus who died of other causes.

For instance the brother of 2020 Democrat presidential aspirant Elizabath ‘Pocahontas’ Warren was 86 years old, had cancer and was in a hospice. Yet he apparently contracted the virus and died. So he was called a virus death. That is ludicrous. Another example: The 100-year-old widow of astronaut John Glenn allegedly died of the virus. But in fact she died of old age. The list goes on and on for tens of thousands of cases. In many of those cases the deceased did not even have the virus.

At the same time the virus was dealt with in the opposite manner than it should have been. Since it killed primarily elderly people with pre-existing sicknesses – often people in nursing homes – we should have done everything possible to protect the elderly while allowing the rest of the population to proceed as normally as possible, as they did in Sweden and the US state of South Dakota.

The reason that Ferguson was so wrong is because he made wild and totally speculative guesses that were alarmist in nature. He did this to draw worldwide attention to himself.

This is precisely like the ‘global warming’ alarmists claiming that the planet is burning up and that sea levels are rising and are going to drown coastal cities. Al Gore said in 2007 that sea levels were going to rise 17 feet yet they have not risen at all since then.

And if you want to know the truth about “rising sea levels”, consider the fact that Gore bought a $9 million oceanfront property in California in 2010. ‘Warming’ alarmist Bill Gates spent $43 million on an oceanfront estate earlier this year.

Now we have growing proof that the Chinese virus is much the same. said right from the start that it was being totally overblown. I said as far back as March that president Trump should fire Dr. Fauci from the White House Coronavirus Task Force, that Fauci was almost always wrong about everything, for instance when he said in January that the virus was nothing to worry about or in March that people could go on cruises without fear. But then he claimed shortly thereafter that it was very dangerous. How can someone of such alleged expertise offer these contradictory opinions?

Good question. Fauci is the faker who said back in the early 1980s that AIDS was going to ‘break out’ into the heterosexual population and kill millions of people. It never happened. But thousands of non-gay people did die from blood transfusions from infected gay donors. Yet Fauci never warned that this could happen, and blood screening was not implemented until 1985 after AIDS had taken a massive toll on non-gay people.

If Fauci is so damned smart, why was the US so unprepared for the virus outbreak? Answer: Because Fauci is a typical government bureaucrat who knows nothing but who spends his time aggrandizing himself through his job. has been vastly more correct about this outbreak than Fauci, and has no medical training whatsoever.

Today New York state, which incubated and spread the Chinese virus all around America after inheriting it from China via Europe, reportedly has the lowest rate of infection of all states.

How could this be? Wasn’t the virus supposed to kill off millions in the city of New York? Like it was going to kill off the whole nation of Italy?

But it did not. Yet we all remember the hysterical nature of New York governor Cuomo demanding tens of thousands of respirators which were never needed or the US Navy hospital ship Comfort which was rushed to New York harbor but which went virtually un-used.

This all happened after Cuomo sent thousands of elderly people to their deaths by ordering that nursing homes accept infected patients, spreading the virus rapidly among the most vulnerable population.

We should all recall the legendary peace activist Mahatma Gandhi who said, “The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members.” And Cuomo failed miserably at this.

Then when states like Georgia and Florida “opened up” after a long period of shutdown they were maniacally criticized by virus fanatics and media skunks on the left. Yet these states have not shown any huge spikes in deaths like we saw in Lockdown New York.

And while New York state is now into several phases of “opening up”, let us consider how this virus evolved.

It broke out in New York City after Democrat politicians in the city told New Yorkers not to worry about it. If Trump ever did that he would be put on trial by the United Nations.

New Yorkers then spread the virus all over America through air travel. So the whole country ended up being shut down as a result of the horrible policies by the liberals in New York City.

The Fake News media wanted the country shut down since the Fake News media want America ruined. These media rats hyped every alarmist story that they could. They did this largely to try to harm president Trump. And this fear-mongering continues. It is now being reported that more American have died of the virus in 4 months than died in all of World War I. The US has seen 116,854 deaths which is slightly higher than the 116,516 believed to have died in the war.

This is the way that the media are using statistics and fear tactics to frighten Americans and to control them through the virus, through ‘climate change’ and through every other type of manufactured crisis. We can expect the next milestone to be that “more Americans have died of the Chinese virus than died in the bombing of Hiroshima, Japan.” (140,000 people).

At the same time, Democrats are famous for wearing these face masks, while president Trump has never been seen in public with a mask. There is good reason for this. Masks show weakness and fear, yet the masks themselves reduce your oxygen supply, force you to re-breathe carbon dioxide in your breath that should be expelled into the atmosphere, and trap germs inside the mask from inside your body that should be expelled into the air.

Meanwhile even ultra-liberal National Public Radio reported that the virus is not nearly as bad as predicted:

The tests are finding large numbers of people in the US who were infected but never became seriously ill. And when these mild infections are included in coronavirus statistics, the virus appears less dangerous.

… “‘The current best estimates for the infection fatality risk are between 0.5% and 1%,’ says Caitlin Rivers, an epidemiologist at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. That’s in contrast with death rates of 5% or more based on calculations that included only people who got sick enough to be diagnosed with tests that detect the presence of virus in a person’s body.”

But the death rate is far lower than that.

Studies across the country have shown that far more people have antibodies for COVID-19 than has been known, meaning far more already had the virus, many showing no symptoms at all.

An antibody study was conducted last month in New York City and found that 1 in 5 (21.2%) of residents have already been infected with the coronavirus. There are 8.5 million people in New York City, so that would mean 1.8 million New Yorkers have had the virus. At the time of the study, there were 16,249 deaths in the city attributed to COVID-19, which means the death rate in the city was 0.89% at the time — far lower than reports in the U.S. media.

A recent Stanford University antibody study estimated the fatality rate from the virus is likely 0.1% to 0.2%. The World Health Organization (WHO) had estimated that the death rate was 20 to 30 times higher and called for isolation policies. On which version do you think the media focused?

In New York City, the U.S. epicenter of the pandemic, the death rate for people 18 to 45 years old is 0.01%, or 10 per 100,000 in the population. People aged 75 and older, though, have a death rate 80 times that. For children under 18, the rate of death is zero per 100,000. That’s zero.

Results of antibody survey in Los Angeles found as many as 442,000 Los Angeles County residents might have already been infected with the coronavirus by early April, a number far higher than the 8,000 cases confirmed at the time. The survey suggested that the death rate from the virus could be as low as 0.18% of COVID-19 patients, which means the actual death rate in the city is far lower than reported.

The Indiana State Department of Health … led a study of more than 4,600 people statewide [in May]. Most were selected at random.

Participants got two tests. The first was the standard test that looks for the virus. It shows whether you have an active infection. The second was a test that looks for antibodies to the virus in a person’s blood. It detects people who were infected but have recovered.

Preliminary results showed that the coronavirus had infected about 3% of the state’s population, or 188,000 people.

“That 188,000 people represented about 11 times more people than conventional selective testing had identified in the state to that point,” Menachemi says.

And 45% of the infected people reported having no symptoms at all.

That’s nearly half.

“Indiana’s infection fatality rate turned out to be about 0.58%, or roughly one death for every 172 people who got infected.”

US Economy Rebounding Strongly from Virus

The American economy is rebounding from the virus slump much faster than expected. Breitbart News reported:

Retail sales jumped higher in May as consumers returned to stores as coronavirus lockdowns were lifted across the United States.

Retail sales surged 17.7 percent compared with the prior month, according to Commerce Department data released Tuesday, easily beating expectations for an 8 percent gain.

Retail sales are now down 6.1 percent compared with a year ago following the month to month 8.3 percent decline in March and April’s 14.7 percent dive.

Still, the better than expected figures for May indicate that consumers are confident enough about the economy and the pandemic to spend their income. The report also suggests that elevated unemployment benefits and other payments from the U.S. government are working to boost demand.

The economy appears to be bouncing back from the sharpest downturn on record. In May, businesses added 2.5 million jobs and the unemployment rates declined from the record-high hit in April.

These positive figures were not expected until Autumn or maybe until 2021. The Fake News media are very sad about this good news. They want only bad news for America.
