I'm going to double down, on the above, since I was in a restaurant, eating and using my phone, with no access to data. This is a smoking gun Karl, if the 4 million estimate is even close to the ballpark, where are the deaths? They aren't, in the data. Since there was a bad flu going around, people would have never known, unless the flu and CV19 produced the same antibodies. I had theorized early that something contagious could travel around airports, in mass, before we knew it. A fool would know they couldn't put this genie back, in the bottle.
These are the death figures for the last 13 weeks of 2017 and 2019 respectively. I used 2017, because the fall/winter of 2018 had a light death toll. Deaths, for the last quarter of 2017 were 762,898. The last quarter of 2019, 774,977. The difference can be fitted into demographic aging and not statistically different. If you include the first 9 weeks, of the following year. the tallies are 1,320,302, for 2017-2018 and 1,308,113, for 2019-2020.
There were actually more deaths, in 2017-2018, than 2019-2020, despite the H1N1 and CV19. Isn't there something wrong with this picture? I think there is plenty wrong with it, even is reality is there was only .75% of the population infected, instead, of 1.5%
When did people start dying? When the government brought in the protocols and hospitals started treating, for CV19. I think this is a smoking gun. Where are the deaths, between Oct 2019 and early March, 2020? Why has the death toll been so high, in the USA, compared to somewhere, like Singapore, which at one point posted 50 deaths out of 50,000 cases. One out of 1000 versus 1 out of 50 or less? There can only be 3 reasons, medical treatment, or the cases, in Singapore were inflated or they were more selective, in counting deaths, not labelling every death a CV19 casualty.
There are differences between Singapore and US society. Society, in Singapore was already highly controlled. Not so much, in the USA. It is against the law of the land to treat Americans in the fashion people, in Singapore might be treated. Is this the goal? To usurp, through voluntary compliance, American freedom?
This still doesn't create the hammer, used to achieve compliance. Deaths create the hammer, and the more the merrier. WHERE ARE THE DEATHS, FOR 4 MILLION CASES, PRIOR TO JANUARY 2020? The deaths are missing, unlike the next 13 weeks, when deaths, for the earlier year were 700,828 against 861,947. Shouldn't we have seen a substantial fraction, of the 180,000 additional deaths, in the prior 22 weeks?
Isn't there something wrong with a picture, where deaths only appeared, once they started treating the disease? Maybe John Cullen's story it has been H1N1 all along, but those deaths are contained in the earlier figures as well.
There are 3 things I gather from everything I have seen. One, this disease, if it kills anyone, kills the already sick, in some fashion. Two, it is harder to catch than promoted, for most people, where it gets one extremely sick, especially, if they have no comorbidities. Third, the real death toll was created, by the hospitals and the CDC treatment protocols. Why else did the deaths not show up, until the CV19 specific treatments start? Despite this, the CDC has never changed its protocols. There is zero evidence it was killing anyone prior to the second week, in March 2020.
