An unexpected link between Tuberculosis and Sars-Covid

I began with search criteria (covid "information suppression" july 2020) in Google search

Neither of these reads is for the timid. Both are lengthy yet revealing of history and that which may have been overlooked. BCG vaccination may have an affect on herd immunity. BCG has been the historical vaccine for Tuberculosis. The graphics in the link below are the charted results from a Science Advances research article posted 5 Aug. 2020 The graphs show immunology by BCG and the relationship to cases and deaths of Corona-Sars 19. I did not know BCG therefore the second link as a historical background for those whom also may not. Subsequently, the second link is from March 2013 “efficacy remains controversial”.

Tuberculosis (TB) is still responsible for 2 million deaths every year despite being a treatable airborne infectious disease. "Consumption" and "Phthisis" were terms historically used to describe TB, which was responsible for one in four deaths in the 19th century. Due to its infectious nature, chronic progression and long treatment, TB is a great burden for society. Moreover the emergence of multi-drug resistant TB and the current TB-HIV epidemic has raised even greater concern. Treating and preventing TB has become a permanent challange since the ancient times. Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) is the only vaccine available today and has been used for more than 90 years with astonishing safety records. However, its efficacy remains controversial. No universal BCG vaccination policy exists, with some countries merely recommending its use and others that have implemented immunization programs. In this article we review several important milestones of BCG vaccine development from the discovery till today.

    Fascinating reading. Again science may already have the answers if we look hard enough. There was another medical article that I cannot find at the moment the found similar data with the old OPV vaccine .

      I've no formal med background, yet I can find corollary so easily....10 to 20 hours of research.
      Then I contact a family member with a 30 year doctoral in blood pathology...a reasonable confirmation with qualifications ensued.
      Similar situation with same family member regarding complexity of grain chromosomal structure and nutrition and obesity increase in US and other global cultures.

      Her reaction on both occasions was of a surprised....Well I should have known that immediately. She had the info all along and had to be refreshed by my new exploration. I see this situation across many disciplines, expressly in my manufacturing fields. I see loss of awareness within specific disciplines as to the historical hierarchy of knowledge. The pursuit of the "new" overrides the full practicable integration of what has "worked" in past facsimile or actuality. This is a cultural thing driven by....too much change in too little time. Toeffler's Future the best expression I can offer.

        In the same way use of ionized and uv air filters which can actually kill the sars-cov-2 instead of masks , opening schools etc. Schools were using . these technologies in 1940-50;s to help limit spread of measles and TB. I am using this in my pediatric office to protect myself and patients. Sometimes answers are right in front of us !

          I have had to do a lot of small particulate filtering and designation throughout an industrial career. Sizing of micronized coal down to 1 micron, filtering and UV sanitization of water supply for water jet cutting as a couple examples. The worst was radioactive decontamination for fallout in the Air Force mmid-80s. Sitting in a 90 deg decon shelter fully suited can drive the fearful to acts of desperation.
          With these viral "particulates", if we try to filter to, say, .01 micron, we need a pump to force air through a filter just to breathe. I'll take risk of exposure and prophylactic prep any day.
