Lockdowns Are Not the Answer
Video: Lockdowns don’t work, and they are actually causing MORE deaths
Infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists talk about their Focused Protection approach and the grave concerns they have about lockdown effects.

Asymptomatic Spread is Not a Thing
Common sense tells us that coughing, sneezing, or what we would commonly call “symptoms” are vectors of transmission. So, if someone is asymptomatic, it would be extremely rare for them to spread Covid.
One major study, involving 10 million people, showed not one case of asymptomatic spread.
Again, common sense. The more severe your case, the more likely you are to spread Covid.
How Many Covid “Cases” Do We Really Have?
The FDA hinted that rapid data testing can give false positives. Millions of the rapid antigen tests have been used in America and doctors have openly admitted “it can falsely tell you that there is a virus when there isn’t.” Yet the cases numbers reported to the public are released with no qualifiers.
Most states count “probables” as “positives.” What this means? The case numbers you hear on the news include people who have never actually been tested.
Cycle thresholds in many places are too high, which in plain English means the tests are over-sensitive and can register positive even with no active Covid infection present in the body. Update: Guess what? On the day of Biden’s inauguration (coincidence?), the WHO just confirmed that a weak positive could very well be a negative. and that lower thresholds should be used in people with little to no symptoms. With these new guidelines, we will now see reports that cases are down. Amazing.
PCR swab tests can also register dead virus cells as positive cases making the numbers seem much higher than they actually are.
To make things even more confusing, Covid deaths have been largely misreported and misunderstood by the public. CDC data shows Covid was the direct cause in only 6% of cases.
Do Masks Work?
Hand-washing and staying home when you are sick are still the best tools we have. #virusgonnavirus
Virtual School is Not the Answer
Even back in 2019, surveys showed that 60% of school leaders said students performed consistently worse in online classes.
Students who are already struggling will struggle MORE with virtual and/or hybrid learning
Unexpected consequences of online learning: privacy concerns, ergonomics, isolation and lack of motivation
What Happened to the Flu?
Influenza appears to almost have disappeared this year, despite that fact that in every prior year we consistently had millions of cases and thousands of deaths! Contrary to the popular narrative, however, flu cases are not lower this year due to protective measures like masks and social distancing, but probably because:
- People are far more likely to be tested for Covid than for flu because of Covid hype. Case in point: if you walk into a typical clinic today and report “flu like symptoms,” there’s a huge chance you will be screened and tested for Covid, and not influenza, like you would have been in 2019.
- Some counties and states are not even tracking and reporting flu data like they were in prior years. My state health department has basically replaced their dedicated influenza surveillance dashboard with a Covid page. Because apparently that’s all they are worried about.
- Health care facilities are known sources of infection and populations have been studiously avoiding these places since Covid appeared on the scene. My family physician says his clinic has seen a 50% drop in visits this year. Schools likewise are vectors of transmission, and closings have likely slowed the spread of influenza.
- Thanks to Covid hype, many flu cases are confused for Covid. Many state health departments, mine included, call “probable” Covid cases positive Covid cases. That means you could have Covid or flu symptoms, not be tested, but be quarantined and put on record as a positive Covid case.
