It seems as if there is an international competition going on to determine which country has the most infections, or even more exciting: which country has the most fatalities.
Bing.com/covid and The Johns Hopkins University, among others, keep track of the scores.
The latest situation:
The bold Red head is only meant to terrify and to make you realize the seriousness of this 'pandemic'.
Because that more than 60 million is cumulative and may be statistically interesting to keep track of, but does not give a clear picture of the current situation. That should apply to the daily number Active cases, however, since they are registered in most countries via the PCR test, which is not reliable, this is of no use to us either.
What is also wrong are the Recovered casesas many countries do not report this to the international registration systems.
The only thing that would be correct is the number fatal cases. You would think, right?
Well, there are also some question marks about that. I have already explained and calculated that in my column: Collateral Damage. (see link below)
But a diligent student at The Johns Hopkins University, Genevieve Briand, has conducted a much more detailed study of the number of deaths in the US.
According to the latest data, the US currently ranks first in the total number of COVID-19 cases, new cases per day, and deaths.
Genevieve Briand, assistant program director of the Applied Economics master's program at Hopkins, critically analyzed the effect of COVID-19 on U.S. deaths.
In her study she focuses on the deaths in the period from mid-March to mid-September. 1,7 million deaths were recorded in the US with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) during that period.
200.000, or 12% of the total number of deaths, would be related to COVID-19.
Briand didn't just look at the totals, however, but focused on the number of deaths by age group and by cause of death and compared that with the year before, as I did in my calculations.
Surprisingly, the deaths of the elderly before and after COVID-19 turned out to be the same. And it is also surprising that mortality rates remain relatively the same among all age groups.
Briand's data analyzes suggest that, contrary to most people's assumptions, the number of deaths from COVID-19 is not alarming. In fact, it has relatively no effect on deaths in the United States. She studied the data from 2014 to 2020 and discovered ups and downs that are mostly seasonal in each year. In addition, there is an annual increase in the number of deaths, but this applies to all causes of death and may have more to do with the increase in the population.
In the statistics, Briand showed that the increase in the number of deaths in 2020 from covid-19 is offset by the decrease in other causes of death.
Exactly the same conclusion that I had drawn from my (mini) research. But here supported by an exhaustive study by a diligent student. The study was described Nov. 22 in
Obviously, this stood out and the article and conclusions were discussed and debated on social media and other platforms.
But yes, censorship does not only take place in the Netherlands, it is becoming a worldwide phenomenon. On November 26, the editors of The Johns Hopkins News Letter removed the article and commented on it in detail.
There is talk of dangerous data undermining the impact of the pandemic.
"We decided on November 26 to withdraw this article to stop the spread of misinformation, as we noted on social media." Thus writes the editors.
Nothing in the article is substantively disputed or debunked. Genevieve Briand just showed an undesirable result. Many doctors and doctors in the US have already issued statements that as many deaths as possible should be attributed to Covid-19, and hospitals receive a fat premium for each Covid-19 registration. According to the CDC, there have been nearly 300.000 additional deaths from Covid-19 and that should of course not be disputed and the editors have apologized for the publication. It's no different in the US from us, ladies and gentlemen.
I also looked at some figures and made some calculations. And I have to conclude that by 2020 in the US most likely more deaths will be registered than ever.
As of November 14, the counter stood at 2.512.880. If I extrapolate that, I get to 2.884.280 for the whole year. A record!!
Still just looked for some figures:
Deaths in the US, annually from 2013:
2020: 2.884.280 (data up to and including 14 November, extrapolated on an annual basis)
Well, in 2020 we can expect an increase in the number of deaths of just over 1%.
But wait a minute, last year, 2019, there was also an increase. 1,12% even. Did we miss a pandemic in 2019? And an increase of 2018% in 1,22, 2017% in 1,24, 2016% in 1,27, 2015% in 1,27 and 2014% in 1,29.
It's all just more evidence that we are being cheated on all sides, being censored, being muzzled, being held captive. And who knows what else awaits us. And It Happens Everywhere.
