Fooling around vs being fooled

“It’s easier to fool people than convince them than they have been fooled” Often attributed to Mark Twain.
No matter who said it, it is an absolute truth statement, even if there are no absolutes, someone might say. At the present times, 99 percent of the population has been fooled into believing many things that are not true, at least not scientifically backed by honest data, (not paid science.)

On the contrary, there is science against the opposite. But nobody will say, yes, I was fooled, but I’m ok with it.

Most people rather live a comfortable lie, than an uncomfortable truth.

The lockdown(s) were never about hospitals’s capacity. The lockdown was and still is according to official sources to stop the infection of SARS-CoV-2.

The “surge” in cases is simply due to people testing positive for the SARS-CoV-2, but this fact does not make them a COVID-19 case.

Have you ask yourself why, so many people are testing positive for the virus? The reason being is that more testing is being conducted all across the world.

Second question, why do people who are or seem healthy test positive and you don’t even know you have it?

According to the latest study published in the Lancet, most young people specially in the groups from 14 to 49 had gotten the virus with no symptoms a lot.
Children under that age do not get infected. In the study, one child got the virus. The exception.

The group that from 50 to 65, got the virus with mild condition not required hospitalization. The only group that is at risk are people 65 and over, and that is because they have a coctail of diseases that render their inmune system weak.

Now, if in the present lockdown essential workers are allowed to mingle outside their homes to work, if they “catch” the virus obviously they will bring it home, to a “close quarters,” where they can infect any other members of the family. Right?

The lockdown is ineffective, is a complete disaster. Because destroyed the economy of the world at large and further more is eroding the means of survival of the sensitive population-Those who are daily laborers, migrants, street vendors whose only survival is in the tourist industry.

So, why instead to mandate a lockdown in a 7.8 billion people, why the policy wasn’t to protect the population at risk to get infected and to develop COVID-19, the flu which is also a respiratory infection could have been taken as a studied example.

Not every household in the world has a member in the mentioned group – 65 and over- those who has them should have the responsibility to care for their elderly, meaning wearing masks when in public to avoid getting the virus and bring it home. Taking all measures of hygiene before being in contact with their elders.

We must take in consideration another group, the population that already suffers from conditions known to weaken their inmune system. The same measures should be taken.

By now science widely established that assymtomatic people do not transmit the virus, simply because the means of transmission starts when the body starts protecting itself through its defense mechanism such fever, sneezing and coughing. If you have fever, no body can’t get sick by touching the warm skin of the person. Righ? but if you sneeze or cough then you can transmit the virus. The WHO has the data compiled by countries which followed stric tracking of assymtomatic and their contacts. “The data shows no secondary infection from an assymtomatic person,” the WHO said in its June 8 briefing.

“Maria Van Kerkhove, the WHO’s technical lead on the Covid-19 pandemic, made it very clear Tuesday that the actual rates of asymptomatic transmission aren’t yet known.”

Kerkhove made it very clear Tuesday that the actual rates of asymptomatic transmission aren’t yet known.

If an asymptomatic person could transmit the virus just by speaking, this means the virus is in the saliva right? Then the testing for the overall population should be a simple swap of saliva from the mouth. But, that is not the present case. The testing requires to dig down on your throat or nose, where the virus is being isolated by the normal defense mechanism of the body if any virus is present.

So, again the hospitals entered the equation when people started to challenge masks and lockdowns and the changing of mask guidelines.

If all governments can allocate billions of dollars to their defense budget to buy the latest weaponry of war, why they couldn’t switch that budget to fight this “almost microscopic enemy,”?

Another important point to address is the medical personal of the army forces, this goes for every country. All states (countries) have trained nurses and doctors. Why instead to use resources enforcing this crippling lockdown, why the armies of the world didn’t deploy their medical personal to the government and private owned hospitals to help fight the enemy?

To end but not less important, it is known, scientifically proven that there isn’t a treatment to cure viruses still now 2020, the only doctor’s prescription is rest, lots of fluids and medicines to treat the symptoms; high temperature, congested cough, and upper respiratory system symptoms. Although, those symptoms are the defense mechanism of the body to figh the pathogens, whichever they are, if they become severe, they need to lessen the discomfort.
Only, when the person become to ill to treat him/her at home is that they go to the hospital to be under medical treatment. This has been a common practice by majority of the population, specially rural places that don’t have medical facilities nearby.

So, in my personal informed opinion – after endless research and medical knowledge- I’m talking as a nurse and as a journalist, the lockdown(s) and curfews are the wrong public policy ever enforced in the population in time of relative peace, at least in most countries.

More cases the better, if you have followed the reports from all world’s CDCs you find that COVID-19 cases resulting on deaths are very small percentage. Until now analyzing the latest data, the death ratio range between
0. 03 to 0.26 worse scenario, and this number is taking in consideration the data of the positive cases reported from assymtomatic persons who voluntary gave their throat or nose samples.

So again, wear your mask if you have to, but don’t blindly advocate for a lockdown that doesn’t affect you at all. Stay home if you feel safe, but stop feeding endless unnecessary fear to the population not affected by the SARS-CoV-2.

Take care of your elders and inmuno depressed, but don’t try to curtail-with your fearmongering-the ability of the 90 percent of the population who can safely work and need to work to survive.

The lockdown are a wrong policy. Remember this: 37- million people live with HIV and live a normal lives with treatment.

The following video is it very interesting piece of information to watch, but not just watch it and forget about it. Research the topics explained in it.

While Pfizer pharmaceutical has made headlines on the release of their Coronavirus vaccine, a former Vice President and Chief Scientist of the company Dr. Michael Yeadon has said that there is no need for any vaccines to bring the COVID-19 pandemic to an end.

Yeadon probably will be smear by mainstream media. His message parts ways from the global official narrative, and the trillon dollars vaccine industry will be hurt if the message gets the attention of the people.

He is an expert in the field of inmunology and he has no financial gain from the outcome of this information. On the contrary, his reputation will suffer greatly thanks to mainstream media.

The big scare


The big scare!
By Marivel Guzman

The New York Times latest numbers on COVID-19 deaths, “Tracking the Coronavirus,” leave you alarmed by the numbes and selective wording they used, but if you analyze the real data; death ratio to population, and death ratio to cases, the numbers are so minuscule, that the largest number is . 03 in Mississipi ratio to cases, and ratio to population .0008, and the highest ratio to population is Texas with . O4, but ratio to cases .02.
These numbers comparable to deaths for other transmitable diseases, or death by other causes, which have very high mortality in US and in the world, like Coronary Artery Disease, which just in US alone kills more than 657,000 per year average. And, the Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causing bacteria of Tuberculosis is more contagious than SARS-CoV-2, according to the CDC, 13- million Americans are infected with latent tuberculosis, which treatments were halted due to the diversion of funds and medical attention taken away by lockdowns and closure of clinics and hospitals across US and worldwide.

SARS-CoV-2 is not deadlier than other diseases, but got the exaggerated media attention, pushed by pharmaceutical and vaccines manufacturers, who are set to make billions in profits.

These are the US numbers, which according to the New York Times are state hotbed spots for COVID-19, which in itself is misleading. It should be called SARS-CoV-2 cases, not COVID-19, because not all the people infected with SARS-CoV-2 develop COVID-19.

As more people get tested, the ratio to cases number gets smaller, and death toll data shows is going down, also the ratio to population and ratio to cases consequently will get smaller.

This trend is true for all countries. US is leading the charts in number of deaths for two reason: it is a big country, and haven’t used Hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19.

The problem I see in US, is not that the population didn’t used masks, or didn’t follow “social distancing guidelines,” but the problem was not to allowing doctors to use Hydroxychloroquine as a prevention, and as treatment for COVID-19, and neglecting its elderly population.

The previous data analysis I generated showed, that countries that used Hydroxychloroquine were able to keep the death rate at bay.

Not all SARS-CoV-2 infected persons (cases) develop COVID-19. So, don’t get into panic because you see mainstream media throwing big numbers of cases in their headlines. Study the data and use some critical thinking before you share alarming “news.”

Remember herd inmunity is a good thing. More people get infected with SARS-CoV-2 and ride the virus cold death, more protected is a community.

Check the numbers, very small percentage of the population got seriously ill, or unfortunately passed away. Majority, almost 99.98 percent of the cases recorded got the virus with mild symptoms or no symptoms at all.

UPDATE: Aug. 23, at 22:15
A clarification for the use of this chart to explain herd inmunity.
I’m personally advocating for natural herd inmunity, not vaccines. The data shown in some studies supports the argument, that the majority of the population who got infected by SARS-CoV-2 are naturally inmunized against COVID-19.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC), on Aug. 14, update guidelines says, “people who got infected by SARS-CoV-2 and recovered don’t need to be tested again at least for three months.” and clarified, that natural inmunuzation doesn’t means that the person cannot get infected again. But also imply, that getting infected is not the same as getting sick.

How other way can be explained, that the death ratio to cases’s numbers are dropping in the charts.
