The “COVID Chronicles” film1 offers a concise have a look at the pandemic, answering among the questions which have left many individuals scratching their heads, as a result of the truth 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 machine engineering and main groups in complicated problem-solving. On his web site, TheFatEmperor.com,2 he presents steerage on tips on how 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 crimson flags within the pandemic from the beginning. As a result of the signs of COVID-19 overlap with so many different illnesses, the one technique to know you will have it’s to check for it.
The polymerase chain response (PCR) exams used for COVID-19 use a robust amplification course of that makes them so delicate they’ll even detect the stays of a lifeless virus lengthy after an infection, Cummins explains. However even past that, each optimistic COVID-19 check is taken into account a “case” — and therein lies a serious downside.
A Constructive Check Isn’t the Identical as a Case
Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, an inside 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 “check pandemic” as a result of PCR check.3
“It was accepted by WHO, they usually mentioned when the check is optimistic, now we have a case of COVID-19. And that is how they began counting the instances,” Wodarg says. “What they counted was the exercise of testing. And the extra they examined, the extra instances they discovered.”4 When labs use extreme cycle thresholds, you find yourself with a grossly overestimated variety of optimistic exams, resulting in a “casedemic”5,6 — an epidemic of false positives.
Wodarg says COVID-19 “was a ‘check’ pandemic. It was not a virus pandemic,”7 as a result of PCR exams could give a optimistic end result when it detects coronaviruses which have been round for 20 years.8 In “COVID Chronicles,” Cummins speaks with John Lee, a former scientific professor of pathology at Hull York Medical College and advisor histopathologist at Rotherham Normal Hospital, who later grew to become the Rotherham NHS Basis Belief’s director of most cancers providers.
He echoes Wodarg, stating that through the pandemic, each optimistic check is taken into account a case, however “these are two utterly various things.”9 Usually, you probably have a typical chilly, for example, you solely develop into a “case” when you’re hospitalized, however this all modified with the pandemic. Lee says:10
“In coronavirus, we’ve been counting each single optimistic check as a optimistic case. Now that is scientifically and medically incorrect. You’ll be able to have a optimistic coronavirus check and be utterly effectively. You’ll be able to have a optimistic coronavirus check and be excreting minimal quantities of the virus.
To conflate optimistic exams with instances is just incorrect, and but the optimistic instances have been driving authorities coverage and all the 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 data discover that clarified directions for decoding outcomes of PCR exams, together with the truth that “cautious interpretation of weak optimistic 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 will 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. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the lockdown was carried out far too late and induced way 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 world. 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 folks additional proper on high of each other.
As a result of the world has an extended historical past of battling illnesses like HIV and tuberculosis, it was simple for officers to make use of knowledge from the world, which rapidly confirmed that these most in danger from COVID-19 had been aged, frail or affected by different circumstances like Sort 2 diabetes. What stunned many, nonetheless, is that Khayelitsha fared a lot the identical through the pandemic as all over the place 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 the world over 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% degree of antibodies throughout the neighborhood proved to be extraordinarily highly effective and really, very protecting, even in opposition to 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 lots of First World nations … they’d not meant … for COVID to unfold all through the neighborhood. However in doing so, they arrived at some extent the place herd immunity, when you like, had been reached.”
Different communities additionally loved excessive ranges of COVID-19 antibodies locally, together with in India, the Orthodox Jewish neighborhood in London and Amish communities within the U.S. So, when this virus was left to behave in a way that may permit it to unfold amongst the wholesome, they had been sometimes 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,” printed November 18, 2020, within the Annals of Inner Medication,16 discovered that amongst masks wearers 1.8% (42 members) ended up testing optimistic for SARS-CoV-2, in comparison with 2.1% (53) amongst controls.
After they eliminated the individuals who reported not adhering to the suggestions to be used, the outcomes remained the identical — 1.8% (40 folks), 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, you must 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 affect on the curve … in any respect so the empirical science of our personal eyes is screaming at us: masks and lockdowns do not actually transfer the needle a lot, possibly somewhat, 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 instances or deaths the best way they need to if they really scale back transmissibility. Nations that used minimal masks weren’t worse off than neighboring international locations with masks mandates.19
“That is sensible,” 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 number of weeks of papers have overturned a number 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 comparable amongst individuals who’ve been injected and those that 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 not likely working very effectively 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 comparable 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 plenty of trickery with the info. The hospitalizations are troublesome as a result of you’ll be able to’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 accessible.
So the lion’s share again then had been unvaccinated as a result of the vaccines weren’t right here but. So there’s plenty 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 individuals are being hospitalized. What’s extra, the movie notes, “In 2021, professor Sir Andrew Pollard, director of the Oxford Vaccine Group, acknowledged that, ‘… herd immunity by vaccination shouldn’t be a risk as a result of it [Delta] nonetheless infects vaccinated people.’”25
Is This a Pandemic of Life-style?
Dr. Aseem Malhotra, a advisor heart specialist and chairman of public well being collaboration within the U.Ok., can be featured in “COVID Chronicles,” talking concerning the underlying components that make sure folks extra susceptible to COVID-19 — specifically lifestyle-related illnesses pushed by poor weight loss program.
This side of prevention by way of 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 believe what we’ve had is a quick pandemic, when it comes to COVID, that has exacerbated and brought benefit of a sluggish pandemic, which is the pandemic of continual, lifestyle-related illnesses 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 largest driver of those continual illnesses: poor weight loss program.
Ultraprocessed meals, which is the guts 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 US, and there’s a really clear correlation between, already, international locations that had 50% or extra of the inhabitants obese 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 true drivers of this downside are structural. These are to do with the setting 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 standpoint, are the meals trade and the pharmaceutical trade.
And the collusion of teachers, medical journals, medical doctors and politicians for monetary achieve with these industries is the guts of the issue. This must be uncovered, and the general public wants to know and understand that the largest 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 chance 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 necessary 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 believe, is when you turned off the media, nobody would know there’s an epidemic. Even through the surges in Eire, in each seasons, when you didn’t have entry to the media, you’ll by no means know.
Nobody actually knew anybody who died — exterior of somebody in a nursing residence, somebody of elevated age or with stage 4 most cancers — most individuals didn’t know anybody who died. Proper? Isn’t that unbelievable, in a large pandemic, as we’ve been informed?”
