Nobel Prize winning chemist Michael Levitt says the coronavirus pandemic may be coming to an end.
Stanford biophysics professor Michael Levitt, who won the 2013 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, says the pandemic might have come to an end.
“CDC excess deaths to 29 Aug. are 14% below baseline as predicted in July. This is the first time since March that delay-corrected death data fell below baseline. Excess death in the Mar.-Aug. 20 COVID-19 season may be over. A huge milestone!” he tweeted Thursday.
And this recent research paper presents evidence that in most advanced nations, a second wave of COVID deaths is not coming.
Evidence presented in this paper indicates that the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 pandemic as an event in the UK is essentially complete, with ongoing and anticipated challenges well within the capacity of a normalised NHS to cope. The virus infection has passed through the bulk of the population as a result of wholly natural processes and evidence indicates that in the UK and other heavily infected European countries the spread of the virus has been all but halted by a substantial reduction in the susceptible population. This has occurred because the level of infection required to introduce enough immunity into the population to reduce the reproduction number (R) permanently below 1 occurred at markedly lower infection rates and loss of life than had been initially anticipated. The evidence presented in this paper indicates that there should be no expectation of a large scale ‘second wave’ with smaller localised outbreaks when the virus contacts pockets of previously uninfected populations.
… There are very good reasons to believe that the population of the UK and of many heavily infected countries have arrived at a position where the prevalence of the virus is low and probably falling further because the reproduction number (R) has been below 1 for several months. We understand the term ‘herd immunity’ can raise hackles in some quarters of the media. However, it might be more acceptably expressed by stating that the proportion remaining of the population who are susceptible to the virus has fallen sufficiently far that a sustained and growing outbreak of disease is no longer supported. This end state is not at all new or, in our view, controversial. It is how mammals – specifically jawed vertebrates – learned to live with the thousands of viruses that infect every living organism on the planet, not just us, but even plants, fungi and bacteria. __ Read Entire Paper Here h/t WUWT
This is not what the lockdown nazis wanted to hear. But it may be what the real world has been trying to tell us for the past several months.
Chinese Whistleblower Virologist Claims Smoking Gun on Chinese Virus Lab
Chinese virologist and defector Li-Meng Yan has been making the rounds — most recently appearing on British television. She is accusing Chinese labs of fabricating the SARS CoV-2 which is responsible for the global COVID pandemic. Her most detailed accusation is contained in a scientific paper entitled “Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation of Its Probable Synthetic Route”.
More on the Wuhan “gain of function” story:
China will never be called to account for its willful creation and spread of the SARS CoV-2 virus if Zhou Biden is elected president of the US — given the cozy ties between Biden and the Chinese. It is a stark choice, whether to reward China for what it has done to the world.
Lockdown Nazis Also Need to Face a Reckoning
Lockdowns kill more people than the virus they are meant to protect from.
Everything we were originally told about the Coronavirus has turned out to be wrong. In fact, it’s not a “novel” one-of-a-kind infection at all, but a member of a larger family of which there have been many iterations in the recent past. It’s also not the most contagious or most lethal virus we’ve ever seen, but a fairly-mild infection that has no impact on the majority of people and that only kills somewhere between 1 in every 200 to 1 in every 1,000 people. (CDC-IFR- 0.26%)
There was no real danger that our public health system was going to collapse, because the projected number of potential deaths (1 to 2 million in the US) never approached the estimates of the flawed computer models that were used to decide the policy. In short, just about everything we were told from the very beginning turned out to be demonstrably wrong. Why is that? Why do you think that the people who provided us with the information –many of them supposedly “experts” in their field– were so wrong about everything?
And why haven’t they made any effort to publicly correct their mistakes when they realize how much confusion they’ve caused?
It’s politics, right?
What other explanation could there be?
Our leaders and their behind-the-scenes puppet-masters are using science as a vehicle for achieving their own narrow political objectives. __ Killer Lockdowns
Lockdowns have destroyed economies around the world, and have prolonged the contagion months longer than necessary. This prolonged contagion is being used as an excuse for further deadly lockdowns. It is a criminal cycle that only politicians, journalists, and academics could dream up. Remember who they are.
Sweden — which never had lockdowns — has been down to a handful of deaths per week for almost 2 months now. Some lockdown nations such as the UK are approaching the same level of success, but given the economic and psychological damage from the lockdowns, recovery will be harder there. For those nations, states, and provinces that persist in their lockdown gestapo tactics, the deadly cost is only being prolonged and intensified.
