  • COVID Problems: CDC's Method of Estimating 'Expected Deaths' and 'Excess Deaths' Is Misleading

    Amercan ^ | October 19, 2020 | Robert L. Kinney III
    One of the main COVID-19 statistics used by the CDC is referred to as the "percent of expected deaths" in 2020 when compared to previous years. The CDC estimated a number for total deaths it expects in 2020. The CDC then compares the actual reported number of deaths in 2020 to the number of deaths that the CDC estimated to be expected in 2020. Deaths above the "expected deaths" number are then suggested to have been caused by COVID-19. On its main COVID-19 data page, the CDC labels the comparison between the reported number of deaths in 2020 and the...

    If you’re thinking about getting a flu shot this year, you might want to do some rethinkingIf it’s too late and you’ve already got one or have been doing so regularly for years, you might want to take a deep breath. The information you’re about to receive may cause outrage.Most people who get a flu vaccine probably assume that it’s going to… you know… prevent them from getting the flu. I mean, why would you go through the trouble and incur the risk of a serious adverse reaction that attends taking any vaccine if you didn’t think it would be...

    While the cruise industry waits for a decision on when cruising can resume, the White House and CDC are being asked to elaborate on allegations they may have intervened in the Centers for Disease Control decision-making process. The Chair of the House Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation, Sean Patrick Maloney, has now requested additional documentation from the CDC after it was reported that the White House had interfered with the CDC’s decision to extend the No Sail Order. According to widely publicized publications, the Trump administration intervened last month when Dr. Robert Redfield of the CDC wanted to...

    An overlooked study published recently by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that cloth face coverings or masks are mostly ineffective in preventing the spread of the Chinese coronavirus as promoted by public health officials. The CDC conducted the study, largely ignored by the media, in the U.S. in July and made its findings public in September. It compared 154 “case-patients,” those who tested positive for COVID-19 (coronavirus disease), and a control group of 160 “control-participants,” those who were symptomatic but tested negative. CDC researchers examined participants who reported wearing a cloth face covering or mask...

    Small gatherings are increasingly becoming a source of COVID-19 infection around the country, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield warned governors on a call Tuesday. Redfield's comments, according to audio obtained by CNN, come as dozens of states see increases in new COVID-19 cases. “In the public square, we're seeing a higher degree of vigilance and mitigation steps in many jurisdictions," Redfield told governors on the call. "But what we're seeing as the increasing threat right now is actually acquisition of infection through small household gatherings," Redfield said. "Particularly with Thanksgiving coming up, we think it's...

    CLAIM More people who wear masks become sick with COVID-19 compared to non-mask wearers, therefore masks don’t work or are making us ill SOURCE: Jordan Davidson, The Federalist, 12 Oct. 2020 DETAILS Flawed reasoning: The comparison made in the claim is not related to mask effectiveness, but is simply the result of the fact that the study included many more people who wear masks as compared to people who never wore masks to begin with. Of all 314 individuals in the study, there were only 11 who never wore masks. By default, a comparison of the proportions of people who...

    Once again it appears there are conflicting facts, data and plenty of opinions about the efficacy of wearing masks to prevent contracting the Coronavirus. In addition to causing “maskne” and skin infections on the face and around the mouth, persistent coughing, “mask mouth,” and respiratory illnesses including lung infections, it turns out that most everyone infected with COVID-19 “always” wore masks, according to a newly published study by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The study found 74.2% reported wearing masks “always” while 14.5% worse masks “often.” It is difficult not to conclude that wearing non-surgical cloth face masks...

    A Centers for Disease Control report released in September shows that masks and face coverings are not effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19, even for those people who consistently wear them. A study conducted in the United States in July found that when they compared 154 “case-patients,” who tested positive for COVID-19, to a control group of 160 participants from the same health care facility who were symptomatic but tested negative, over 70 percent of the case-patients were contaminated with the virus and fell ill despite “always” wearing a mask. “In the 14 days before illness onset, 71% of...

    Reuters ^ | Feb 15, 2010 | Reuters
    The CDC and the World Health Organization stopped trying to count all the actual cases months ago, once it became clear that H1N1 was a pandemic that would infect millions. WHO's count of lab-confirmed cases showed that at least 15,292 people had died in 212 countries and territories. But WHO and the CDC note there are nowhere near enough diagnostic tests to give to everyone with flu-like symptoms to see if they really have swine flu. The CDC therefore does its estimates based on models, calculated by looking intensively at small groups of people, gathering data on overall reports of...

    A recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study that has been largely ignored by the fake news media indicates that wearing face masks may not do all that much to prevent individuals from contracting COVID-19. The study shows that 70.6 percent of symptomatic COVID-19 sufferers reported that they “always” wore their face diaper, but were infected anyway. An additional 14.4 percent of COVID+ respondents stated that they wore the face diaper “often” but it did not protect them from catching the China plague....Investigative journalist Jordan Schachtel notes that these findings prove CDC director Robert Redfield to be a...

    The CDC wants Americans to have 'virtual' Thanksgivings, staycation holidays, and gatherings with only your household to avoid spreading COVID-19. But loneliness is a scourge, too. Make this the most joyous holiday season yet. In a nation fatigued by social distancing and dying to escape loneliness, the inimitable Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued recommendations for how to have a “safe” holiday season. Spoiler: A CDC-compliant season will not be “the most wonderful time of the year.”Our national public health experts have steered us confidently through some murky waters. After all, how else would we know that public...

    Former CBS Healthwatch reporter and author of The Matrix Revealed Jon Rappaport exposed the Center for Disease Control for its blatant propaganda regarding COVID-19.  In one of their own documents they state quite clearly: “Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available, assays [diagnostic tests] designed for detection of the 2019-nCoV RNA were tested with characterized stocks of in vitro transcribed full length RNA...”  Since that is the case, that there are no quantified virus isolates, how can one be sure of what is being determined as COVID-19 is, in fact, COVID-19? The particular document Rappaport referenced...

    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo told viewers he would not play audio of what he described as "propaganda" video footage of President Trump removing his mask on a balcony at the White House on Monday night, prompting criticism of Cuomo primarily from conservative commentators who argued he was being hypocritical after breaking his own quarantine earlier this year. “What a bunch of bulls---," Cuomo said of Trump removing his mask before entering the residence and recording a video posted on social media. "He didn’t just walk in the White House one time with no mask tonight. He had his video...

  • The CDC Just Changed How Long You Have to Quarantine After COVID-19

    One of the most important aspects of controlling the spread of COVID-19 is making sure that anyone who has been infected remains quarantined from others until the virus runs its course and is no longer able to pass it to others. Since the start of the pandemic, researchers have been attempting to pinpoint exactly how long individuals remain infectious after their first symptoms appear — to identify when they can safely return to their work, family, and lives without worry of infecting others. Initially, the CDC relied on coronavirus testing to determine whether the virus was still infectious. However, new...
