Perspective from a 2018 New York study that tested a bunch of healthy adults for common respiratory viruses. Over 6% tested positive.
I posted a chart like this on twitter in mid 2020... from Journal of Inf Disease showing the 4 CVs and their seasonal pattern... saying "coronaviruses are here all the time and nothing we can do about it"
Instead of: "oh that's good context".... I got suspended from Twitter... and never went back
Fascinating results. This is also consistent with terrain theory - that symptom and mortality spikes in the winter are due to weakened immune systems more than they are due to greater viral prevalence. This also has implications for the excess mortality observed over the last couple years. Numerous studies have pointed out that the death spikes seem to correlate with the adoption of particularly stringent lockdowns, mask mandates, etc. The non-pharmaceutical interventions weakened immune systems, thereby leading to more deaths than we'd otherwise have had.
Imagine, if you will, a world where every minor virus has a vaxxine for it, and every person in the world is required BY LAW to take that vaxxine on a yearly/ bi-yearly/ monthly basis. All vaxxine manufacturers would be exempt from liability, and people would be punished for refusing them, even if said vaxxine was known to cause death. Big pharma and the government agents behind this would get rich, and Mother Gaia would have fewer humans. So it would be fine.
That's where we're headed.
If big pharma had its way, we’d be lining up for jabs for every rhinovirus in existence.
For the few who didn't see it somehow already, the NYT 2007 piece "Faith in quick test lead to epidemic that wasn't" is fascinating. https://www.nytimes.com/2007/01/22/health/22whoop.html
It's also interesting that we only did something like 2000 PCR tests for MERS in 2015  and patted ourselves on the back for beating it. Coincidentally, in 2015, majority of the world had the largest year-over-year increase in all-cause mortality going back 20+ years. While there is typically only a +/-2% change in year-over-year deaths, nearly every country tracked by mortality.org had their highest increase since (I assume) 1918 in 2015.

Germany for example had 8.8% more people die in 2015 than 2014, compared to a 6.9% increase in 2020 over 2019, yet nobody lost their shit over this and I don't recall CNN having a constant chyron tracking the death toll.
Of course the all cause mortality would be nearly double that 2015 bounce when we got to 2020, I think there is a legitimate argument that had we applied the same approach to 2015 MERS, 2009 H1N1, 2003 SARS, etc as we did to 2020 COVID we would have also likely managed to kill 20% more people than usual, 80% of whom are 65+. Simply trapping nursing home patients and outlawing them having human contact should be enough to add 10%. Add in making the population fatter, stressed, lethargic, and convincing them they shouldn't seek out medical care for real conditions they legitimately have because they could grandma probably gets you easily the other 5%. Then toss in another 5% because sometimes 5% more of us die than usual.
What makes this all so malevolent & infuriating is that they KNEW all of this & forced the tyranny anyway. And they’re warning more to come. This lull is just to keep we masses of the great unwashed from getting too restless (& because in the US midterm elections are coming this Fall)
yes its not exposure to a virus but the immune response to it, more suppressed in winter due to lower vit D
with regards to the allergies, i spent 40 years with pet and dust and pollen allergies right up until i went strict keto for 4 months then it all went away, i still stay away from grains as i believe they are an immune trigger, iirc T12
In the fall of 2020 I was wondering why some intrepid journalist hadn't dug up the information on, say, U.S. flu infections and deaths in the bad 2017-2018 season, and each day blast them out as a parallel to COVID. It may not have been as bad, but emphasizing the fact that most of us didn't even realize what was happening at the time would have been worthwhile.
Yes! All data points such as PCR + are meaningless without context such as baselines, sampling rates, temporal trends, and historical comparisons, etc.
For example, Lauterbach's scarifying lamentations of daily deaths from/with? Covid before German vote on mandates were meaningless without context. Of course, context and insight indicated nothing concerning about the figures he cited.
The assholes who designed this whole scamdemic knew this all along. I contend the lockdowns were partially to blame for excess deaths. Imagine being old and alone, told you are likely not to live; how would you fare in that environment. You probably wouldn’t live much longer. Look at Sweden they didn’t do any of these things (for the most part), and they have no excess deaths.

(i.e. any respi infection is dangerous fro old & frail folks...)
One of my theories is that summer infections, whilst one is healthy and immune system strong, is necessary to prep the immune system for the winter. We don't realise we have been infected but come winter, we aren't hit as hard with whichever virus is around. Remove this summer conditioning with social distancing and suddenly winter becomes a lot more dangerous.
Keep your slaves scared, sick, and poor, and they will never revolt or leave the plantation!
Life is risky. We live with these things until we don't. The caveat is a man made laboratory engineered variant unleashed on another country for political / economic / war type attack. This is what happened to the west and our feckless leaders fell right into the trap by smothering our own economies. Great job. Now things are going to get really interesting and not in a good way. Until then, pray, plan, prepare and RESIST.
What always struck me about the pandemic panic was that the same officials alarmed about "saving lives" have ignored limits on known carcinogens in our food, air and water despite cancer risk of 1:2 men 1:3 women as far back as 2005. Close behind heart disease and child hunger 1:5 kids as far back as the War on Poverty.
Sure has been a good lesson in the power of fear porn to create consensus among the masses. To help with cognitive dissonance Dubbya NeoCons stopped EPA toxic release inventory data collection.. wagers taken on WTC air quality as contributing factor.. when COVID became our most feared killer UC Davis pulled the Scorecard Chemical Safety database.. last public source of formerly public EPA data.. best thing for toxic evidence is erase it!
"Basic Testing to Identify Chemical Hazards
If an industrial chemical is allowed by law to be released into the environment, most people assume that it must have been tested and evaluated for its potential risks. Unfortunately, this is simply not true. Keeping chemical hazards under control requires information about what kinds of hazards each chemical poses.
**If the basic tests to check on a chemical's toxicity haven't been conducted, or if the results aren't publicly available, current laws tend to treat that chemical as if it were perfectly safe. **
For the chemicals being used in large quantities, Scorecard tells you whether or not eight basic types of tests for health and ecological effects have actually been conducted, based on the public record. "
PCR + does NOT MEAN INFECTION. I can't believe how many people still do not understand this simple concept.
We are EXPOSED to airborne pathogens when we breathe. In our nasal passages they get trapped in mucus & expelled, destroyed or swallowed. If that mucus is picked up on a swab & tested via pcr, with enough cycles it will test positive. EXPOSURE DOES NOT MEAN INFECTED!
You are not infected unless the pathogen gets past your innate immune system, enters cells and starts replicating.
