This information was compiled for a local school board after one of the school board trustees requested more information on the legitimacy of Covid-19. Use this information to inform your family, friends and neighbors of what the facts are of Covid-19. What the authorities say in their own words.
"Due to the impact of COVID-19 on ILI surveillance, and the fact that the state and territorial epidemiologists report relies heavily on ILI activity, reporting for this system will be suspended for the 2020-21 influenza season. Data from previous seasons is available on FluView Interactive." CDC Weekly U.S. Influenza Surveillance Report https://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/index.htm- Pg 11
After tracking for many decades, why did the CDC stop tracking Influenza in the middle of this year (2020)? Could it be because they could not report both statistics honestly and still justify the Covid-19 pandemic? Or possibly Covid-19 can not be isolated different from Influenza?
"Diagnostic tests (typically involving a nasopharyngeal swab) can be inaccurate in two ways. A false positive result erroneously labels a person infected, with consequences including unnecessary quarantine and contact tracing." https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp2015897 - Pg 2
"In a preprint systematic review of five studies involving 957 patients (“under suspicion of Covid-19” or with “confirmed cases”), false negatives ranged from 2 to 29%. However, the certainty of the evidence was considered very low...Taken as a whole, the evidence, while limited, raises concern about frequent false negative RT-PCR results." https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp2015897 - Pg 3
"It is important to note that test positivity is a measure of testing capacity and while it can provide important context about case totals and trends, it is NOT a measure of how prevalent the virus is in communities. Policy decisions, like openings and closings or interstate travel, should not be determined based on test positivity alone." https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/testing/differences-in-positivity-rates - Pg 1
"In the U.S., there are no federal standards for reporting COVID-19 testing data. This makes it impossible to offer a fully apples-to-apples view of testing data at the national level. Without federal standards, States have been left to forge their own paths, and as a result, they report testing data differently." https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/testing/differences-in-positivity-rates - Pg 1
"Some States also periodically pause or fully stop sharing key data that are used in making positivity calculations, or change the cadence with which they report data. Both of these actions can create abnormal spikes in positivity rates in tracking efforts such as ours." https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/testing/differences-in-positivity-rates - Pg 2
"Our results indicate that aerosol and fomite transmission of SARS-CoV-2 is plausible, since the virus can remain viable and infectious in aerosols for hours and on surfaces up to days (depending on the inoculum shed)." https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/nejmc2004973 - Pg 3
