This scientist gives good reasons why he should be believed and our scientists not.

    Consistent with other rational thinkers / scientists. As a business owner in Michigan I am supposed to be in the "Mask Police" according to Gov Bitchmer opps Whitmer. If I fail to post a sign on my door "no mask - no service" and if someone complains to LARA that I am not enforcing her mandate I can be fined $500 and lose my business license. I am NOT HER MASK POLICE. This BS has got to end.

      I am similarly outraged regarding Washington State's recent mask requirements. I decided to have fun with it and wear an 'over the top' gas mask... plus, I fashioned a tin-foil hat by applying aluminum foil to a climbing helmet. I amble about in the shops and chat with the staff and other customers in a manner to illustrate the absurdity of it all.

      Perhaps you could have some fun with the Michigan requirement - be creative, place your Mask Required sign on the door where the picture on the sign shows a soldier with a WW1 mask on. Or, include some verbiage to the effect that Tin Foil Hats are optional. The idea is to clearly state your view on masks and that this whole thing is an exercise of arbitrary power by the panic porn peddlers.

    This Swiss scientist made a cogent point that the tests are too sensitive. So, if you had a common cold you could have viral remnants in your body and cause a false positive due to the highly sensitive tests. I believe that an older person, myself included, can maintain and improve their health. I do have some health issues so I exercise using bands, free weights, and Chinese Internal Martial Arts, & Chi Breathing exercises alternately during the week. My wife and I try to eat as healthy as we able too. I take a number of beneficial supplements at AM & PM. Plus, walking my Australian Cattle Dog up & down a 45 deg hill by my house 4 to 5 times a day. I have limited contact with people except when I have to go into town for supplies. I believe that many older adults have very poor health habits or none at all.

      I agree and it seems no one can see the difference between having antibodies to something and having that something.

        It’s worse than that. Antibodies Ab are a response to antigens Ag that are components of the pathogen.

          Doug, let me explain. An antigen enters the body and our B lymphocytes manufacture antibodies. Many times they produce a whole popilation of lymphocytes to react more quickly the next time the antigen appears.

          This is different from getting the disease. There is a threshold titer of virus which if eclipsed, will result in S/S and/or disease. Below that threshold, no sickness but still will give a positive result to an antibody screen.

          Fine, we don't really worry too much about those. In 99.999% of infections, there is no transmittance at low levels of viral presence.

          The world at present, is obsessed by positive tests, not actual disease and certainly, they are exaggerating deaths. Deaths and hospitalizations are the real key to risk, not positive tests.

    "I have also not yet understood why epidemiologists were so much more interested in the number of deaths, rather than in the numbers that could be saved." .. good question. Perchance could it be the 'political' aspect of the whole thing?

    One major point in this article that I really appreciated was the part about Coronavirus being "novel". At the very start of this thing early this year, I was making this point in "certain circles". And got shouted down as a "denier" and even "flat-earther" without addressing my point. How telling and how familiar.

    It was known from the get go that there is a close genetic affinity between SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 (Duh) and even MERS. And that 4 types of coronaviruses are the common cold. But, no; they had to go for the scarism with the trembling word of "novel" (Oh,no!) and call for global lockdown. When none of the previous and similar viruses ever called for a similar lockdown.

    Unbelievable the immensity of this scam. And they are not done. Supposedly, Nevada is now to remain in Phase 1 until there is a vaccine. Sisolak in lockstep with Newsome.

    In re masks, the traditional Plague Doctor Mask is proven effective, complete with air filtration compartment of herbals. “ In the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, some doctors wore a beak-like mask which was filled with aromatic items. The masks were designed to protect them from putrid air, which (according to the now-obsolete miasmatic theory of disease) was seen as the cause of infection. The design of these clothes has been attributed to Charles de Lorme, the chief physician to Louis XIII. (Wikipedia)”

    They thought the Miasmatic Theory of Disease was obsolete, but it has been resurrected as a tool of the Plandemic.

    If the rabid socialists take over the US govt., there will be permanent quarantines...especially for those who do not toe the fascist line. There always has to be a scapegoat to blame.

    He should pick a better ‘medium’. BioRxiv works.

    He should pick a better ‘medium’. BioRxiv works. But it is a good and accurate article in my opinion. We are 71 & 81 y.o. have not been tested and are apparently well.

      We are 66 and 78 y.o., have not been tested, have some bad habits, and just keep cranking along. I have a post-retirement job which involves contact with the public, to some extent, not affected by all this paranoia, yet.
      Hmmmm. Demdemic is for other folks, the believers of the MSM and the left. Apparently. VitC is your friend.

    But, but, but...this is not accurate.

    We know that there are people who are immune to some viruses (ie HIV). We know that there are carriers of bacterial infections (ie Typhoid Mary) who are asymptomatic. And we can see that this virus is not 'just going away' because it is summer.

    I am baffled.

    We're getting to watch the creation of The State Science Institute! That's one reason for my sig:

    Atlas Shrugged was supposed to be a warning, Not A Newspaper!
