BERLIN (Reuters) - The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Germany rose by more than 10,000 in a single day for the first time, data from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for infectious diseases showed on Tuesday.

The institute recorded 11,287 new cases in its daily update for a total of 392,049. The previous day’s increase was 7,830.

The reported death toll rose by 30 to 9,905, the tally showed.

Maybe they are testing more. We are all testing more.

As colleges reopen, they test more. It’s a good thing, but it does count more cases.

Since when do we all have to prove our health every other week?

Virus load? Symptoms? Or is it the same kind of cheap reporting that lists technical positives without a context provided? I do not trust “they tested positive” reporting.

So what? 30 new dead is NOTHING. Utter nonsense. “Cases” means nothing. Almost no one died from COVID.

Too bad not more people take advantage of this!

One of the best kept secrets around is BHT and its ability to kill LIPID covered viruses amongst them the corona virus.

BHT short for butylatedhydroxytoluene, has been around for the better part of thirty years or more, has been approved as a food additive by the FDA as safe for human consumption in small quantities and using common sense. Without going into all the details which would fill many pages some of the benefits are difficult to ignore even so pharmaceutical as well as the medical profession does their best to do so. As a prophylactic it would serve its purpose very well until the right vaccine comes along, without any undesirable side effects, besides being inexpensive and is safer than alcohol consumption, use of tobacco or many other unhealthy eating habits, including many prescription dugs with, many of them having undesirable side effects. No doubt whenever you had a prescription filled it came along with a sheet filled with warnings.

Some of the reasons are that that there is no money to be made by pharmaceutical companies as patents related to BHT ran out long time ago and in order to have it approved for medical application it would require an immeasurable amounts of human tests with expenditures in the millions of Dollars which most likely will never be recovered.

On the other hand many doctors may know about it but will refrain from suggesting it as recommending anything which is not approved by the FDA would leave them wide open to lawsuits, as it is pretty well known that one of the American dreams is, to fall on your neighbors property and then sue them for what ever they can get.

Over the years enough information about BHT has surfaced that if used in small quantities to achieve a particular result, such as from 100 mg to about 1g (one gram or 1000mg) and in most cases 250mg to 450mg may do a nice job for some of the things suggested, it may be less harmful than an equivalent amount of Aspirins. Again do your own research and use common sense which appears to be in short supply these days. Should you decide to try don’t go overboard with it, as more is not always better.

Even so if you still apprehensive or hesitant, use it only when one of those nasty viruses appears on the scene and use it as a prophylactic in a small quantity perhaps up to 450 mg and once the danger subside stop taking it. The catch is that in order to do its job BHT works better before you get sick, as BHT will NOT REPAIR ANY DAMAGE which may already have been done by an infectious disease such as the corona virus. Even so, if taken afterwards BHT will still continue to disable lipid covered viruses, but to repair any damage already caused may require different medications.

One suggested way of taking BHT is to dissolve the quantity you intend to take first in oil as BHT is only soluble in either oil or alcohol, I is also much better absorbed by the human body, but alcohol is not recommended to consume along with BHT. One way of doing it is to dissolve 18 grams or 277 grains, if you happen to have a powder scale used for reloading, of BHT in 200 milliliters of olive oil in a small glass bottle. Then heat it up slightly in a microwave for maybe 40 seconds and then shake it a few times. A teaspoon of this substance, depending on its size will give you approx. 450 mg of BHT which in most cases should do the trick.

So why take BHT on the firs place? It has been long known that BHT will damage the lipid layer or cover from LIPID COVERED viruses and the coronavirus happens to be just such one of such viruses and by doing so will prevent such a virus from attaching itself and do its dirty work.

The Principal Benefits of BHT

In order of importance, supplementing with BHT can help with:

Reduce and prevent viral infections such as herpes, thus terminating their outbreaks. But BHT is also effective against many different human and animal viruses including CMV (cytomegalovirus),9 pseudorabies,10 genital herpes,11HIV,12 and many strains of influenza. These are just a few but not all of the viruses that have a lipid envelope and may be killed by BHT include herpes simplex I, herpes simplex II, herpes zoster, CMV, West Nile virus, HIV virus, influenza virus, hepatitis B and C viruses, avian flu influenza virus and the SARS virus. However, BHT has not been clinically tested to treat and address these infections individually, and there probably never will be as no money can be made. Here, it may be of interest to note that a patent had been filed with the number US4350707 for BHT because of its LIPID COVERED virus killing ability approximately 30 years ago, however in the meantime this patent has expired.

Now keep in mind that very few things in life are perfect and this holds true for vaccines as well as BHT. So when everything comes down to being cut and dried, do you prefer risking being infected with a nasty virus with all kinds of unpredictable side effects or take a chance with some substance which overall has a very good safety record.

Besides most viruses will mutate over time, and by the time someone may come up with the proper vaccine it may no longer match the virus which is currently making its round. But this doesn’t make any difference with BHT if such a virus mutates or not. As long as such a virus has a lipid coating it will damage and disable it..

One of my hunches is, of course it is only speculation, and is based on how vaccination generally works. After BHT has finished the deactivation process of a given virus, such a virus may no longer have the potential to harm the human body, however any remnants of it may encourage our immune system to spring into action and produce anti bodies against this particular virus. Basically this is how basic immunization works by injecting a deactivated virus in anticipation that our immune system responds to it and begins to fight the real thing, when it come along by means of antibodies it has developed in the mean time.

More recently what you may call a ‘Quickie’ COVID “vaccines” are being worked on and developed which inject a live, SYNTHETIC virus, programmed to invade each and every the cell in our body, more or less using the human body as a bio-reactor in hopes to encourage the he human body on its own to develop anti bodies to fight a specific virus. It is a known technique but never tried before on a large scale due to safety concerns. But with the latest COVID virus coming along and being declared as an emergency the FDA dropped most of heir safety requirements giving pharmaceutical companies more or less a free hand to see how I will work on a huge number of people.

So called “Quick” developed vaccines may work just fine initially for a specific virus which they have been designed for, but later on should you get in infected with a mutated strain of such a virus, and viruses can and will mutate which is a guarantee, the outcome may not always be in your best interest and may have severe consequences you may or may not survive. I for one would not want to be the first in line for such a vaccine and provide a test case.

Myself and many others who have been using BHT off and on for the past thirty years whenever one of these lipid covered viruses made their rounds have been pretty successful in keeping those nasty viruses at bay with no side effects.

“30 new dead is NOTHING.”

I’m sure that at least 30 people would disagree. And FYI, from day one Germany has been tallying CCP-19 related deaths as anything else if there was a comorbidity involved.

“Almost no one died from COVID.”

If you are referring to the 6% fallacy, you are perpetuating a lie. First, 6% of 225,000 is over 13,000 people. That’s not “almost no one.” Second, if you apply the same standard to the common flu, you get a number half of that - in other words, only about 3% of the deaths from the common flu are “just” the flu. Third, virtually all diseases behave that way - they don’t kill you outright, they allow for opportunistic infections or existing comorbidities to do the dirty work. Fourth, if you get the flu you might get pneumonia as well, and it is the pneumonia *symptoms* that may kill you. If you get CCP-19 the accompanying pneumonia *symptoms* are actually direct symptoms of the corona virus, not an opportunistic infection (usually), so many of the “covid with pneumonia” cases are really just covid cases. They are being mistabulated based on the flu model, which is inaccurate. Fifth, if CCP-19 had been allowed to run amok as the “muh right to infect you all” crowd wanted, our HCS would have been imperiled and even if it sustained the burden, the death toll would have been many times higher.

Callous disregard for the welfare of others is not a conservative virtue.

In the end, virtually nobody dies of anything other than brain hypoxia. Often after a chain of avoidable circumstances.

What I meant is very simple. Massive testing means massive increases in so called “cases.” Yet for nearly all humans under 30, they wont die from it. In the US, even if you accept that 215,000+ have died...only 94 deaths were those 18 or under...compared to a staggering 1,649 for H1N1 in 2009-10 (14% of total). Only fat slobs and geezers need to worry about this bug.

This is very real. My little village in Bavaria is being devastated. Practically the whole soccer team is down, virtually every attendant at a local wedding is infected, my next-door neighbor is a cop, he is sick.

Germany had been losing about 120 people per million to the virus while in the states more than 600 per million were dying. We shall see if those numbers trend towards evening out.

I’m still distrustful of “cases” numbers as they are tied to increased testing and potential non-uniformity of classification standards. To me hospitalizations is the more legitimate indicator of outbreak hot spots.

“Only fat slobs and geezers need to worry about this bug.”

Yeah, no worries, the 70% of Americans that are fat slobs and geezers aren’t real people.

Most testing is based on contact tracing. The numbers of tests have gone up, but the positivity has gone down. There are still plenty of new cases being reported and it is NOT simply a matter of expanded testing (else the positivity would have held constant).

It’s over 225,000 deaths, and we’re still around 1,000 per day. That’s more than the Spanish Flu per day average (yes, there was a huge second wave spike for the Spanish Flu, but that doesn’t really help the argument against comparison since we’re doing it without a spike). And, in fact, the Spanish Flu numbers included the regular flu since they couldn’t easily distinguish back then, and for clarity, for the first six months of the SF pandemic there were only 14,000 surplus deaths from “Spanish Flu” over the 1915 statistic (75,000 “Spanish Flu” deaths in 1918 versus 61,000 flu deaths in 1915), or a little less than 20%. But we CAN tell the difference, and our CCP-19 deaths are just a bit over that 20% bump. 225,000 surplus deaths over the average 36,000. That’s 625% (525% increase, or excess). And that’s for just 7 months, not the full 12 for the flu stat.

Good news, though, is that the mitigation that at least some people engage in has lowered the number of common flu cases dramatically, by like 95%. Before you go there, as I mentioned, we can distinguish between the two diseases, so, no, the flu numbers are not being absorbed into the covid numbers, and even if they were, that still doesn’t explain away the other 190,000 dead. What’s actually happening is that the defense against covid is taking out the flu as collateral damage. One might argue that that is a measure of how effective the mitigation is - is it stopping 95% of covid spread? Probably not, but you have to be pretty obtuse to claim it isn’t having a significant effect. That sort of denial is just reflected confirmation bias by those in the throes of weapons-grade ODD.

Personally, I have noticed that I am less congested than I usually am, since I mask in public. I attribute it to avoiding pollen, pollution and the general low-level viral load we are all normally exposed to. Or to avoiding the virons spewed out by everybody all the time under normal circumstances.

FTR, using the 2009 pandemic as a bar isn’t really viable given the amount of politicization by the Obammy administration involved.

Science. Math. Facts. Get some. Just because you don’t like the facts - and they are facts, I laid out the math for all but the most retarded to see - doesn’t make them untrue.

Instead of name calling, refute my argument. C’mon, you know “the truth” so enlighten us. Show me where I went wrong. What makes what I said “political” any more than your denial of it (except, I have arguments supported by actual facts, and you have buzzwords, sooo...)?

cases, Cases, CASES, yeah right.

The man who invented (and recieved a Nobel for) the ‘test’ which is most commonly used to ‘detect’ Covid rejected its use for that purpose as it is hyper hyper sensitive. It has little bearing on Covid infection, but is pushed by a single minded media and fools for political reasons.

OK, Mr.Math, how in the hell can Germany have 9,000 some Covid deaths while the US has 200,000 ? ‘splain that MisterTruth master.

Oh yeah, SCIENCE.
Why do HCQ using countries have an 80% lower death rate that the SCIENCE non HCQ countries ?
