Asymptomatic Spread Revisited...(it's nonsense)

The phrase “fog of war” is attributed to Carl von Clausewitz. It has come to refer to the confusion and uncertainty felt by everyone in the midst of conflict. It is often unclear who is making decisions and why, and what the relationships are between the strategies and the goals. Even the rationale can become elusive as frustration and disorientation displace clarity and rationality.


In 2020, we’ve experienced the fog of disease mitigation.


[]Talk about this began in March but faded. Sometime in summer, the idea of asymptomatic spread started to trend, bit by bit. It finally went to an explosion of interest in the first week of June. It trailed off again until very recently.


[]Asymptomatic spread was the answer given to the great question: I’m not sick so why should I have to be locked down? Why are we quarantining the healthy? And what possibly could it mean, in any case, to be sick without symptoms? Why are half the PCR-positive tests assigned to people who otherwise seem to be perfectly fine?

    From what i am reading in the more recent medical articles, asymptomatic spread is probably not a big player in this pandemic.The asymptomatic do not have high viral loads.

      More likely, inactive virus or most times, crowned virus pieces, cold, flue or covid..there are other lesser viruses that are crowned too...forgive me, I didn't commit to memory their designations.

      If one has no symptoms of infection, one cannot be "infectious!".

    "With solid evidence that asymptomatic spread is nonsense, we have to ask: who is making decisions and why? Again, this brings me back to the metaphor of fog. We are all experiencing confusion and uncertainty over the precise relationship between the strategies and the goals of panoply of regulations and stringencies all around us. Even the rationale has become elusive – even refuted – as frustration and disorientation have displaced what we vaguely recall as clarity and rationality of daily life."

      I recently had a a socially distanced interaction with a neighbor. We were both unmasked. Suddenly he ran into his garage, fetched a mask, and said, “ I really don’t know what to do or believe anymore”. The point is Fear is leading to mass confusion and the sheeple are no longer able to think for themselves. Mass hysteria will soon follow. We are quickly approaching the point of insanity.
