Title A fiasco in the making? As the coronavirus pandemic takes hold, we are making decisions without reliable data
Add Date 17th March 2020
Category General
Description The current coronavirus disease, Covid-19, has been called a once-in-a-century pandemic. But it may also be a once-in-a-century evidence fiasco.

At a time when everyone needs better information, from disease modelers and governments to people quarantined or just social distancing, we lack reliable evidence on how many people have been infected with SARS-CoV-2 or who continue to become infected. Better information is needed to guide decisions and actions of monumental significance and to monitor their impact.

Title Covid-19 Crash
Add Date 29th March 2020
Category General
Description Covid-19 Crash refers to the ultimate outcome of Covid-19. There is going to be an economic crash the scale of which is going to make 2008 look like a walk in the park. But, there was always going to be an appalling economic crash without Coronavirus… ‘they’ are just using Corona as a cover… but more of that in the forthcoming article: Our Economy Is Way More Sick Than Us!

However, despite the many dire outcomes an economic crash will subject us to, we must not forget there are also immense opportunities for positive change within all of this. In fact, I truly believe we have ushered in these times of grave uncertainty to do precisely that… We have been aching for the chance to heal ourselves… Now’s the time we can!

Title Quarantines May Backfire
Add Date 19th March 2020

Description The mistaken presumption that a person “catches a cold” from someone else, or a flu virus, or a coronavirus, is the basis for calling a quarantine.

The fallacy of person-to-person transmission is ingrained in the population as news reports of vacationers trapped in China during a coronavirus are flown back to the US and are found to have COVID-19 corona virus that may spread to their family members.  But COVID-19 is not spreading into the community.  Online maps showing the almost stagnant number of coronavirus-confirmed cases in each State are rapidly vanishing from view on the internet.

There is person-to-person transmission of the virus, but not necessarily person-to-person transmission of the disease.  To better explain this, we have to dig back into the annals of epidemiology (the study of disease).

Title The Coronavirus and Galileo: An Interview with a Italian Nano-pathologist Dr. Stefano Montanari
Add Date 5th April 2020
Category General
Description Desperate times call for desperate measures: this link is from a occidental/white focused site but should not be discounted because of that. As a personal note: we all bleed red so one's skin colour is irrelevant to me.

Editor’s note: I am posting this not as a claim that Dr. Montanari’s ideas on the virus are correct—I do not have knowledge in this area— but only that his views should be aired. We are living in a time when science has become politicized and the claims of establishment scientists have become political orthodoxy and dissenters punished. In my field, psychology, decades-old findings have been to be unable to be replicated. Yet they are still to be found in textbooks because they favor leftist and environmentalist explanations for human behavior, particularly regarding racial differences, and dissenters are shunned and denied academic positions. Climate science has become completely politicized, so non-experts are left not knowing what to think while the establishment media and academic groups cling to an orthodoxy and brand anyone who disagrees as intellectually deficient and morally suspect. Can anyone trust the pharmaceutical industry (e.g., the Sacklers and the opioid crisis) or experts on nutrition? So much of what is produced in these fields is subject to financial motivations, and again, the average person is left wondering what drugs to take and what foods to eat. So let’s be open to Dr. Montanari’s ideas. Personally, I find many of his ideas quite compelling, and he is definitely well-versed in the field.
