Ignore the BS about reinfections: only a few dozen found worldwide/ Stat

From StatNews: Already, there have already been several dozen documented reinfections around the world, though current numbers are almost certainly an undercount. If subsequent infections are indeed mild or asymptomatic, many of them will go undetected. It can also be difficult to establish two separate infections in the same person. But so …

Cases up 20% while Deaths down 24% since last week/ NY Times

From today’s NYTimes, see the diagram below.  What do I see in the curve?  The slope downward from this last (3d) peak is too steep.  The epidemic curves of diseases generally rise steeply and fall more slowly as the virus runs out of susceptibles.  See the two prior peaks for …

Why? This will be another Living List. Please send additions.

 1.  Why did all of the vaccines chosen for Operation Warp Speed use novel technologies, unused in any routine vaccines?  (Yes, a new Ebola vaccine uses an adenovirus vector, and a resurfaced military-only adenovirus vaccine uses one too–but that’s all.)  Why wasn’t a method with a proven track record chosen …

The “dangerous Covid variants” story is hogwash, as I have told you. Its only purpose is to instill fear/Lockdown Skeptics

The following article is from Lockdown Skeptics:   This morning I wrote that despite the British Covid variant – supposedly much more deadly and contagious – being dominant in the UK since December, positive cases peaked 10 days before the January lockdown, and instead of a Christmas surge, infections plummeted in January and also failed to spike in schools …

Did the lockdowns/masks actually reduce Covid infections and deaths? WSJ and C2C suggest they didn’t, not at all

The WSJ on March 6 editorialized about how Florida, which ended lockdowns very early, has done much better with Covid death rates than states with much more regulation.  It appears the masks, lockdowns, social distancing provided no discernable benefit.  Maybe they even increased cases and deaths.  C2C ran a similar …

CDC changes the guidelines they just issued, Scott Gottlieb admits there was no science behind the 6′ rule/AP

 CDC just issued new guidance for social distancing in schools.  It turns out that no data supported the 6′ rule, as I pointed out in several blog posts, such as here.   UPDATE March 21:  Scott Gottlieb, former FDA Commissioner, admits the 6′ rule was never based on science.  Watch the CNBC …
