  • Second Wave, Same Strategy: Swedish COVID-19 Czar Defiant Despite Surge - Still No Lock Down

    11/14/2020 5:51:00 PM PST · by SeekAndFind · 6 replies
    Sweden remains steadfast in its strategy of voluntary measures and no lockdowns, the architect of its unorthodox COVID-19 response said on Friday, as the country battles a growing second wave of disease that has now killed more than 6,000 Swedes. The Nordic nation of 10 million people, whose soft-touch approach to combating the virus has drawn worldwide attention - and harsh domestic criticism from some - has seen a surge in number of cases, hospitalisations and deaths in recent weeks. At 5,990, the number of new cases reported on Friday was the highest since the start of the pandemic. A...
  • Official data is 'exaggerating' the risk of Covid and talk of a second wave is 'misleading', 500 academics tell Boris Johnson in open letter attacking lockdown

    Official data is 'exaggerating' the risk of Covid-19 and talk of a second wave is 'misleading', nearly 500 academics told Boris Johnson in open letter attacking lockdown. The doctors and scientists said the Government's response to the coronavirus pandemic has become 'disproportionate' and that mass testing has distorted the risk of the virus. They said tests are likely to be producing high numbers of 'false positive' results and the Government must do more to put infection and death rates within the context of normal seasonal rates.
  • Europe's second wave suggests COVID pandemic could have been avoided: The key is Hydroxychloroquine

    Thomas Lifson's 10/26/2020 informative post detailed how Europe is now experiencing a second wave of COVID deaths.  The American mainstream media echoed the claim about the COVID spike in Europe and are also claiming that a similar one is happening in the USA based mostly on increased positive tests.  However, that trend correlates closely with the increased testing.  Unbiased COVID-19 data for this analysis was found in an interactive chart from Our World in Data.  Their COVID-19 data uses a seven-day moving average of daily deaths per million people to make it easier to compare trends for large and small countries.  I selected...
  • Follow the Science! 1.2 Million COVID-19 deaths edition: Disputing The Second Wave Hysteria

    This post was originally my comment to a person on Facebook, which somebody then deleted. This person repeatedly throws out the 1.2 M deaths worldwide number and I finally lost it and posted a response to him after he scolded people for “spreading disinformation and not listening to science”. He actually told people disputing the Second Wave Hysteria to “shut up and listen to the government and science”.As one of my all-time favourite economists, Thomas Sowell, would say…. “Oh dear, where to begin?”1 million or 1.2 million deaths worldwide sounds like a big number and on its own you...
  • Europe’s COVID second wave spike shows the futility of lockdowns and mask mandates, as well as the phoniness of the Dems’ criticism of Trump

    I take no schadenfreude joy in the resurgence of Coronavirus in the European countries that have imposed drastic lockdowns and mask mandates. The enormous costs – economic, medical and psychological – of locking up the populace have not purchased any benefit. Vijeta Uniyal reports at Legal Insurrection: Europe is experiencing the full fury of Wuhan coronavirus with the death toll surpassing that of the United States. “Across Europe, the number of infections since the start of the pandemic is now above 8.2 million and more than 258,000 people have died from COVID-19,” French TV network EuroNews confirmed on Saturday. Germany is...
  • Fauci tells Murphy N.J. is in ‘good shape’ with COVID-19 despite threat of 2nd wave

    Dr. Anthony Fauci told Gov. Phil Murphy on Thursday that New Jersey is in “good shape” and “well positioned” compared to other states as the United States prepares for a second wave of the coronavirus this fall and winter, as long as the state continues to reopen its schools and economy “gradually, prudently, and carefully." The man who has become America’s most famous doctor spoke with Murphy during a half-hour morning conversation on Facebook Live, discussing recovery from COVID-19, what lies ahead, and how soon a vaccine might be distributed. Fauci praised the Garden State — one of the country’s...
  • Chief Science Officer for Pfizer Says "Second Wave" Faked on False-Positive COVID Tests, "Pandemic is Over"

    A former Chief Science Officer for the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer says "there is no science to suggest a second wave should happen," but false positive results from inherently unreliable COVID tests are being used to manufacture a "second wave" based on "new cases." Dr. Mike Yeadon, a former Vice President and Chief Science Officer for Pfizer for 16 years, says that half or even "almost all" of tests for COVID are false positives. Dr. Yeadon also argues that the threshold for herd immunity may be much lower than previously thought, and may have been reached in many countries already. In...
  • Did FDA cause second COVID-19 wave by suppressing Hydroxychloroquine?

    Much has been written about the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine, for example here.  We now have indications that recent restrictions on it caused the second wave of COVID-19 in the United States. On 15 June 2020, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revoked emergency authorization for hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 patients.  Dr. Harvey Risch, epidemiologist, recently pointed out that this caused people who were not hospital patients to be denied access to this drug.  Sure enough, 15 June was the start of the second wave of COVID-19 cases.  The second wave had twice the first wave's high for peak cases at 60,000 per day.  Better...

    The headlines are filled with dire warnings of a “second wave” and trigger-happy Governors are rolling back regulations to try to stem the tide of new cases. But, is any of it actually true and should we all be worried? No, it’s not a second wave. The COVID-19 virus is on its final legs, and while I have filled this post with graphs to prove everything I just said, this is really the only graph you need to see, it’s the CDC’s data, over time, of deaths from COVID-19 here in the U.S., and the trend line is unmistakable:

    With a new wave, or peak, of Chinese coronavirus cases shutting much of the country down again, and news getting out about how it's younger people being infected, the press is blaming bar-hopping and spring break travel. And in the case of the Washington Post, President Trump's rally in Arizona, too. Here's one account from the Washington Post: Health officials are imploring young people to wear masks and practice social distancing as coronavirus transmission among younger Americans continues to drive record outbreaks in several states. The pleas come as governors in Texas and Florida instituted new limits on bars and alcohol consumption to...
  • There Isn’t a Coronavirus ‘Second Wave’

    In recent days, the media has taken to sounding the alarm bells over a “second wave” of coronavirus infections. Such panic is overblown. Thanks to the leadership of President Trump and the courage and compassion of the American people, our public health system is far stronger than it was four months ago, and we are winning the fight against the invisible enemy.While talk of an increase in cases dominates cable news coverage, more than half of states are actually seeing cases decline or remain stable. Every state, territory and major metropolitan area, with the exception of three, have positive...

    Addressing concerns about the dramatic drop in the stock market this week, director of the United States Economic Council Larry Kudlow said that, despite concern on Wall Street, there was no rising second wave of COVID-19. Reports of increased hospitalizations in various parts of the country have popped up this week, leading some to believe that a throttling in the stock market was due to fear of another economic shutdown. Kudlow put those fears to rest, saying that the market's fall was likely due to a combination of needless worry and opportunistic trading by some after a dramatic increase in...

    With more states easing restrictions after the coronavirus lockdown, the U.S. recently surpassed 2 million cases of COVID-19, prompting public health experts to worry about a second wave of the virus. In 21 states, cases spiked over the past week, NBC News' Erin McLaughlin reported. New Mexico and Florida have seen a 40% increase, and in Utah and Arkansas, which never instituted statewide stay-at-home orders, cases are up 60%. Officials in Arizona, where cases have risen 93%, have urged hospitals to activate their emergency plans. In light of the new numbers, the nation's top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci,...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said on CNN that while a “second wave” of coronavirus infections “could happen,” another outbreak is “not inevitable.” Fauci, who has been warning about a “second wave” for months, appeared to back off his dire predictions slightly. In April he said, “We will have coronavirus in the fall. I am convinced of that.”CNBC: He told The Washington Post this month that he has “no doubt” there will be new waves of cases.Fauci’s comments came days after he told CNBC that stay-at-home orders intended to curb the spread of the coronavirus could end up causing “irreparable damage” if...
  • Coronavirus pandemic could be over in the UK by September 30: Scientific model predicts virus will continue its steady decline with NO second wave

    Coronavirus could be completely wiped out in the UK on September 30, according to modeling from scientists. A team at the Singapore University of Technology plotted data from the pandemic to pinpoint the date cases will die out in countries hardest hit by the disease. They predict a total eradication of the bug in Britain with no new cases — or a second wave — at all from the end of September. The US, where most COVID-19 deaths have been recorded, will extinguish the infection by November 11. The model predicts the trajectory of the spread of the virus over...

    Donald Trump was adamant in stating that, if a second wave of the coronavirus hits the United States, he won’t shut the economy down again. CNBC reported on the president’s visit to a Ford plant in Michigan. “People say that’s a very distinct possibility, it’s standard,” Trump said when asked about a second wave during a tour of a Ford factory in Michigan. “We are going to put out the fires. We’re not going to close the country,” Trump said. “We can put out the fires. Whether it is an ember or a flame, we are going to put it...

    Millions of Chinese citizens could be forced back under lockdown, as discrepancies in data reporting and surging COVID-19 cases in northeastern China show a second-wave outbreak of the CCP virus is now occurring. Already, the Chinese regime has declared “wartime” status in at least two cities—including the capital city of Beijing, where authorities recently reported dozens of fever patients, whom they insisted were diagnosed with a bacterial infection and not the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, commonly known as the novel coronavirus. Authorities in northeastern China have quarantined around 8,000 people after they were exposed to confirmed patients. Six local...

    Covid-19 is here to stay. Like the seasonal flu, the best Americans can hope for is an annual vaccine. Either we learn to live with this disease and determine never to “voluntarily” shutdown our economy again, or risk losing our way of life forever. The impact these lockdowns have had on Americans’ familial relationships, mental and emotional well-being, individual finances, medical health due to the neglect of secondary issues, and the attacks on our religious and civil liberties, are more damaging than the virus itself. America didn’t shut down our economy during the Hong Kong flu pandemic of 1968. It...

    Denmark is “very unlikely” to be hit by a second wave of coronavirus, the country’s chief epidemiologist said on Tuesday, after the government laid out plans for increased testing and a contact tracing system. The Nordic country, which has 533 coronavirus-related deaths, was the first in Europe to relax its coronavirus lockdown almost a month ago. The infection rate and the number of deaths have continued to drop. “No country has seen an actual second wave yet. Some countries have seen the spread go up and down,” state epidemiologist Kare Molbak said at a news briefing. “But with the knowledge...

    Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, reportedly said Wednesday that a second wave of the coronavirus is "inevitable" later this year. "If by that time we have put into place all of the countermeasures that you need to address this, we should do reasonably well," Fauci told CNN in an interview. "If we don't do that successfully, we could be in for a bad fall and a bad winter." The head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said that if states ease restrictions too quickly, the country could see a surge that would "get us...
