While the Covid-19 epidemic continues to drag on in the United States, it’s largely over in Sweden where fatalities have dropped to no more than 2 deaths per day for the last week.
Sweden has been harshly criticized in the media for not imposing draconian lockdowns like the United States and the other European countries. Instead, Sweden implemented a policy that was both conventional and sensible. They recommended that people maintain a safe distance between each other and they banned gatherings of 50 people or more. They also asked their elderly citizens to isolate themselves and to avoid interacting with other people as much as possible. Other than that, Swedes were encouraged to work, exercise and get on with their lives as they would normally even though the world was still in the throes of a global pandemic.
Sweden’s model would have worked in most of the world but we will never know. To be clear, the virus is real and there is a pandemic. Practical sanitation methods and safe distancing would reduce the size of the inoculum and increase the body’s ability to produce antibodies. But this does not explain why the virus did not run rampant through Africa. Is this due to their inability to pay for a vaccine?
- The governments in the world will continue lockdowns for a simple reason: to control the people.
- The world’s governments are instituting measures to force lockdowns through financial blackmail as outlined above.
- The virus was released with multiple gain of function enhancements from the Chinese laboratory last October. This research started in Chapel Hill, NC and was moved to China under the Obama administration. The United States financially supported this research here and in China.
- Hydroxychlorquine and zinc was a documented treatment for SARS-COV in 2005 as outlined above.
- Countries that allowed the use of hydroxychlorquine and zinc have a lower case fatality rate.
- There is no documented R0 for the virus after 9 months of transmission.
- The initial treatment using ventilators was not the proper course of action.
- The government, media and universities are more concerned about a vaccine’s profits than effective treatment.
- The government in the United States is using the virus to suppress religion and support a Communist insurgency.
- The people in this country are more concerned over whether a mask reduces the R0 (it does and is documented in peer reviewed papers), than standing up against the insurgency. At this point, this issue is only a device to divide us.
So where does that leave us? I warned in the beginning of this pandemic for the need to have people lock down due to public virtue, not government mandate. I also stated that if we did not, the government should impose lockdown measures. What most people missed was the implicit warning for government lockdowns: if they overreached, we had the duty to fight back. That time is now here.
We have two choices: fight back and risk the possibility of contracting the virus or stand down and allow Communism to take over our country. The other side made their choice and they are out rioting in the cities. Why are they not spreading the virus? Their masks are not high quality but would reduce the inoculum. However, we would still see an increase in those cities if the virus had the attributes that our leaders and media are telling us.
This is a personal decision but it is one that everyone will have to make. I would rather risk getting infected than watching the country fall to the Deep State.
