Covid-19 Lockdown Cost/Benefits: A Critical Assessment of the Literature

An examination of over 100 Covid-19 studies reveals that many relied on false assumptions that over-estimated the benefits and under-estimated the costs of lockdown. The most recent research has shown that lockdowns have had, at best, a marginal effect on the number of Covid-19 deaths. It is possible that lockdown will go down as one of the greatest peacetime policy failures in modern history.

How Effective are Masks Really?

COVID-19 is as politically-charged as it is infectious. Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, the WHO, the CDC and NIH’s Dr. Anthony Fauci discouraged wearing masks as not useful for non-health care workers. Now they recommend wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are hard to do (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies). The recommendation was published without a single scientific paper or other information provided to support that cloth masks actually provide any respiratory protection. Let’s look at the data.

COVID-19 What The Mainstream Media Isn’t Telling You

CTV News aired a new clip stating that the total number of deaths in Canada outside of long-term was only 166.  A few days later this information was removed from the clip.  (People) shouldn’t rely on the mainstream media and should do their own research.  There is a general consensus that the mainstream media is using scare tactics  to coerce people into compliance so they will accept the vaccine. This makes sense because those who will benefit from the vaccine control the media...

Israel’s ‘fourth wave’ data: Vaccination does not appear to prevent infection

New data from Israel confirms that four months after mass vaccination the vaccinated public becomes infected with COVID at about the same rate as the unvaccinated.

Key Points

  • Government responses should focus on detecting and isolating infected people with symptoms, the World Health Organization said.

  • Preliminary evidence from the earliest outbreaks indicated the virus could spread even if people didn’t have symptoms.

  • But the WHO says that while asymptomatic spread can occur, it is “very rare.”

Natural immunity provides better protection against COVID-19 than Pfizer vaccine, Israeli study confirms

A new Israeli study has confirmed that natural immunity from a previous Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) infection can offer more protection than getting two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine. The study was conducted by a team of Israeli researchers from Tel Aviv University and Maccabi Healthcare Services.

Coronavirus vaccines work. But this statistical illusion makes people think they don’t.

Is the vaccine wearing off? It’s an exhausting thought for those of us who believed the battle against covid-19 would be won once enough needles plunged into enough arms. But outbreaks of the delta variant have blossomed even in places with high levels of vaccination, including Israel, Britain and my own home of Madison, Wis. Recent reports from Israel that nearly 60 percent of people hospitalized with severe covid-19 were fully vaccinated raised particular alarms about the limits of the protection that vaccines provide.
