The “COVID Chronicles” film1 provides a concise have a look at the pandemic, answering a few of the questions which have left many individuals scratching their heads, as a result of the fact and science don’t appear to match up with what the media is reporting.
Ivor Cummins is a biochemical engineer with a background in medical gadget engineering and main groups in complicated problem-solving. On his web site, TheFatEmperor.com,2 he gives steerage on methods to decode science to remodel your well being. He produced “COVID Chronicles” together with Donal O’Neill, a documentary filmmaker within the subject of well being and human efficiency.
There have been purple flags within the pandemic from the beginning. As a result of the signs of COVID-19 overlap with so many different ailments, the one solution to know you have got it’s to check for it.
The polymerase chain response (PCR) exams used for COVID-19 use a strong amplification course of that makes them so delicate they will even detect the stays of a useless virus lengthy after an infection, Cummins explains. However even past that, each constructive COVID-19 take a look at is taken into account a “case” — and therein lies a serious downside.
A Constructive Take a look at Isn’t the Similar as a Case
Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, an inner drugs physician and former head of well being on the Council of Europe, is amongst those that referred to the COVID-19 pandemic as a “take a look at pandemic” as a result of PCR take a look at.3
“It was accepted by WHO, they usually stated when the take a look at is constructive, now we have a case of COVID-19. And that is how they began counting the circumstances,” Wodarg says. “What they counted was the exercise of testing. And the extra they examined, the extra circumstances they discovered.”4 When labs use extreme cycle thresholds, you find yourself with a grossly overestimated variety of constructive exams, resulting in a “casedemic”5,6 — an epidemic of false positives.
Wodarg says COVID-19 “was a ‘take a look at’ pandemic. It was not a virus pandemic,”7 as a result of PCR exams could give a constructive consequence when it detects coronaviruses which have been round for 20 years.8 In “COVID Chronicles,” Cummins speaks with John Lee, a former medical professor of pathology at Hull York Medical Faculty and guide histopathologist at Rotherham Basic Hospital, who later grew to become the Rotherham NHS Basis Belief’s director of most cancers companies.
He echoes Wodarg, stating that in the course of the pandemic, each constructive take a look at is taken into account a case, however “these are two utterly various things.”9 Usually, when you’ve got a typical chilly, as an illustration, you solely change into a “case” in the event you’re hospitalized, however this all modified with the pandemic. Lee says:10
“In coronavirus, we’ve been counting each single constructive take a look at as a constructive case. Now that is scientifically and medically incorrect. You possibly can have a constructive coronavirus take a look at and be utterly nicely. You possibly can have a constructive coronavirus take a look at and be excreting minimal quantities of the virus.
To conflate constructive exams with circumstances is just incorrect, and but the constructive circumstances have been driving authorities coverage and the complete panoply of restrictive actions which have been taken.”
January 13, 2021, “WHO lastly questioned the accuracy of PCR testing,” the movie notes, and launched an info discover that clarified directions for deciphering outcomes of PCR exams, together with the truth that “cautious interpretation of weak constructive outcomes is required.”11 “Reported case charges collapsed within the U.S. the next day,” “COVID Chronicles” factors out.12
Lockdowns Didn’t Work
Lockdowns could be efficient in the event that they’re carried out when nobody has the illness, however as soon as it is already spreading in your inhabitants, they do not work. Through the COVID-19 pandemic, the lockdown was carried out far too late and induced rather more hurt than profit.
The movie highlights COVID-19 outcomes across the globe, together with in vastly completely different areas, like densely-populated Khayelitsha in South Africa. It was initially assumed that COVID-19 would devastate the realm. They had been strictly locked down together with the remainder of South Africa, however as a result of dense inhabitants, the lockdown in Khayelitsha solely served to power individuals additional proper on prime of each other.
As a result of the realm has an extended historical past of battling ailments like HIV and tuberculosis, it was straightforward for officers to make use of knowledge from the realm, which shortly confirmed that these most in danger from COVID-19 had been aged, frail or affected by different situations like Sort 2 diabetes. What stunned many, nevertheless, is that Khayelitsha fared a lot the identical in the course of the pandemic as in all places else in South Africa.
Additional, because the second and third waves struck, these in Khayelitsha had been significantly better protected, at the same time as new variants emerged. It was later discovered that as many as 68% of native residents had COVID-19 antibodies.13 As famous in “COVID Chronicles”:14
“[A]s Delta reduce a swathe internationally and certainly South Africa, it was greater right here than any of the prior waves or the variants that we had seen. However in Khayelitsha, that 68% stage of antibodies throughout the group proved to be extraordinarily highly effective and really, very protecting, even towards the brand new Delta variant.
So whereas the U.Ok. was in full disarray, right here we had a casual settlement in an economically disadvantaged area with a inhabitants of half one million outperforming the U.Ok. and plenty of First World nations … that they had not supposed … for COVID to unfold all through the group. However in doing so, they arrived at a degree the place herd immunity, in the event you like, had been reached.”
Different communities additionally loved excessive ranges of COVID-19 antibodies in the neighborhood, together with in India, the Orthodox Jewish group in London and Amish communities within the U.S. So, when this virus was left to behave in a way that may enable it to unfold amongst the wholesome, they had been usually attending to about two-thirds of the inhabitants displaying antibody ranges.15
Masks Mandates Didn’t Work
Like lockdowns, masks mandates are one other pandemic management measure that’s been pushed as gospel regardless of lack of effectiveness and proof of hurt. The “Danmask-19 Trial,” revealed November 18, 2020, within the Annals of Inside Drugs,16 discovered that amongst masks wearers 1.8% (42 members) ended up testing constructive for SARS-CoV-2, in comparison with 2.1% (53) amongst controls.
Once they eliminated the individuals who reported not adhering to the suggestions to be used, the outcomes remained the identical — 1.8% (40 individuals), which suggests adherence makes no vital distinction. Initially, quite a few analysis journals refused to publish the outcomes, which referred to as widespread masks mandates into query.17
If masks work, the movie factors out, it is best to instantly see a dramatic change within the curve, inside 14 days. “When you have a look at round 10 or 12 international locations the place they introduced in masks mandates, there was no impression on the curve … in anyway so the empirical science of our personal eyes is screaming at us: masks and lockdowns do not actually transfer the needle a lot, possibly just a little, however nobody desires to know. It is an ideology now. It is a faith,” Cummins says.18
Dr. Reid Sheftall additionally studied masks utilization extensively and located masks mandates didn’t noticeably change the variety of circumstances or deaths the best way they need to if they really cut back transmissibility. International locations that used minimal masks weren’t worse off than neighboring international locations with masks mandates.19
“That is smart,” Cummins says, “as a result of 40 years of science have been unanimous, just about, that for influenza viruses, surgical masks and coverings are extremely ineffective. So it agrees with the science.” But, the media declare masks are efficient, based mostly on a “flurry of papers” that got here in round June 2020 saying masks may very well be good. “So a couple of weeks of papers have overturned a couple of many years of scientific sense,” he provides.20
Injections Aren’t Working
It’s now been uncovered that the viral a great deal of COVID-19 are related amongst individuals who’ve been injected and people who haven’t.21 “What sort of a vaccine wants three vaccinations, and a possibly a fourth, and extra, inside months?” Cummins asks. “The reply is a vaccine that’s probably not working very nicely in any respect.”22
The media message that the pandemic is now a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” can be deceptive, since knowledge from Israel confirmed that related numbers of individuals had been being hospitalized for COVID-19, whether or not they had been injected or not.23 Cummins notes:24
“There’s a whole lot of trickery with the info. The hospitalizations are tough as a result of you possibly can’t get the uncooked knowledge, they usually’re very confounded knowledge. In a single case … the U.S. got here out with shock tales that 99% are unvaccinated. Nevertheless, they had been accounting for means again … earlier than the vaccines had been obtainable.
So the lion’s share again then had been unvaccinated as a result of the vaccines weren’t right here but. So there’s a whole lot of trickery — I might say fraud — in the best way the info’s being introduced.”
Individuals who’ve acquired just one injection of an mRNA sequence are additionally known as unvaccinated, which additional biases the info to once more make it appear like extra uninjected persons are being hospitalized. What’s extra, the movie notes, “In 2021, professor Sir Andrew Pollard, director of the Oxford Vaccine Group, said that, ‘… herd immunity by vaccination isn’t a risk as a result of it [Delta] nonetheless infects vaccinated people.’”25
Is This a Pandemic of Life-style?
Dr. Aseem Malhotra, a guide heart specialist and chairman of public well being collaboration within the U.Ok., can be featured in “COVID Chronicles,” talking concerning the underlying elements that make sure individuals extra susceptible to COVID-19 — particularly lifestyle-related ailments pushed by poor weight loss program.
This facet of prevention through a long-term wholesome life-style, which might save lives in future pandemics, is one other tenet that’s ignored by the dominant narrative. Malhotra explains:26
“I feel what we’ve had is a quick pandemic, when it comes to COVID, that has exacerbated and brought benefit of a gradual pandemic, which is the pandemic of persistent, lifestyle-related ailments which have been placing stress on our well being care system for a lot of, a few years, and our NHS, actually even earlier than COVID, was already at a breaking level.
However really, COVID has damaged the again of the NHS, and the principle motive behind it is because we failed, for a lot of, a few years, to deal with prevention head on, particularly the most important driver of those persistent ailments: poor weight loss program.
Ultraprocessed meals, which is the center of the issue, is now half of the calorie consumption within the British weight loss program. It’s about 60% of the calorie consumption in the USA, and there’s a really clear correlation between, already, international locations that had 50% or extra of the inhabitants chubby or overweight had 90% of the deaths from COVID-19. So, poor metabolic well being means poor immune well being.
However past this, we all know that the actual drivers of this downside are structural. These are to do with the atmosphere and with misinformation that’s being subjected on the general public for the needs of revenue. And the 2 actual culprits behind this, in my perspective, are the meals trade and the pharmaceutical trade.
And the collusion of lecturers, medical journals, docs and politicians for monetary acquire with these industries is the center of the issue. This must be uncovered, and the general public wants to grasp and notice that the most important enemies of democracy are the meals trade and the pharmaceutical trade.”
If Not for Media, Would You Know There’s a Pandemic?
The movie implies that COVID-19 introduced a possibility that a number of entities have used to additional their very own agendas, whereas media have served as a instrument for overriding science and customary sense. It’s vital to remain grounded and assume critically to keep away from falling sufferer to pointless panic and stress. Cummins notes:27
“A key factor to recollect, I feel, is in the event you turned off the media, nobody would know there’s an epidemic. Even in the course of the surges in Eire, in each seasons, in the event you didn’t have entry to the media, you’ll by no means know.
Nobody actually knew anybody who died — outdoors of somebody in a nursing house, somebody of elevated age or with stage 4 most cancers — most individuals didn’t know anybody who died. Proper? Isn’t that unbelievable, in an enormous pandemic, as we’ve been advised?”
