How the CDC develops guidelines
The Center for Disease Control uses research from the Los Alamos National Laboratory as a basis in determining what they deem to be proper protocols for dealing with a pandemic. The article is titled: High Contagiousness and Rapid Spread of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2. They discuss the need for quarantines and social distancing but provide no proof that these measures are more effective than simply letting the virus run its natural course. In fact, they discuss the need for further studies to even determine the existence of super-spreaders.
“Future field, laboratory, and modeling studies aimed to address the unknowns, such as the fraction of asymptomatic persons, the extent of their transmissibility depending on symptom severity, the time when persons become infectious, and the existence of superspreaders are needed to accurately predict the impact of various control strategies . . . “
The media and government officials have us all convinced that we are asymptomatic Typhoid Marys spreading the disease all over the place with no concrete evidence that this is actually occurring. We are forced to stand six feet apart, wear masks and remain locked in our homes even though these measures have never been required before. The premise that we are all “super spreaders” has shut down the entire global economy, causing the loss of millions of jobs and undo suffering. This appears to be psychological warfare against the citizens. Everyone is turning against each other. People are fearful to walk past another person. After 9/11 we were programmed to be fearful of Muslims. Now, we are being programmed to fear all. It has to stop.
What is the end goal?
When the closings and unconstitutional house arrests first occurred, we were given a typical time-frame of one month before we could reopen and get back to our normal lives. But we keep hearing about more delays, especially in some states. And even the promises to reopen have constraints, such as continued social distancing. Plus we don’t know if they will impose a new lockdown when the second wave occurs. It seems likely based on media reports. Things certainly won’t be back to normal and probably never will be if we don’t fight hard against this clearly organized plan to control every citizen in the world.
Government leaders and researchers at the CDC and Los Alamos National Laboratory never promote healthy options to combat the virus such as sunshine, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, fish oil and proper nutrition, or the option to let us decide how we want this handled. Most of us would choose to quarantine the sick while the healthy go about their normal lives. But no, the “experts” believe the only way to fix this is to create a vaccine. They want us to stay indoors for 18 months! With the entire world stalled for that length of time, it’s common sense that many more people will die of starvation than the virus— with or without the imposed mitigation strategies.
A Simulation Study
I found some additional articles on the Los Alamos Lab’s website. In the March 2013 Science and Technology magazine, there is a brief article on page 28 titled “Preventing a Pandemic.” It describes a simulation to determine the effects of social distancing and severe quarantines to mitigate the effects of the virus.
“The H1N1 influenza outbreak during 2009 was the first new flu strain with global reach in 40 years, and its initial virulence alarmed public health officials. As the pathogen spread from Mexico to the U.S. in early spring, the Department of Homeland Security hired a team from Los Alamos, Argonne, and Sandia national laboratories to simulate the pandemic in the United States.
Influenza outbreaks are a combination of unpredictable human and virus behavior, so they are fraught with uncertainty.
Here we go with the unpredictable human behavior. We must control human behavior to combat the virus!
“The outcome of H1N1 was less severe than past flu epidemics, but Los Alamos-led research now explains how much worse it could have been. Understanding how scenarios based on the potential range of uncertainties could unfold will help federal and local agencies stockpile vaccines and antiviral drugs to plan for future worst-case events.
The Critical Infrastructure Protection and Decision Support Systems (CIPDSS) research team used infrastructure models combined with a general infectious disease model to study an additional element of the pandemic — how absence from work during an outbreak affects the economy. Specifically, the team’s simulation involved “social distancing,” in which people who feel well avoid work and school.
In a recent publication of the 2009 study investigating 24 possible flu mitigation scenarios, social distancing reduced infections at a higher rate than simply providing antiviral drugs, leading to a 16 percent reduction in individuals with symptoms. However, this mitigation strategy was costly. There was a 50 percent decrease in gross domestic product over the course of the epidemic due to worker absences.
The CIPDSS team, including Rene LeClaire, Dennis Powell, Leslie Moore, Lori Dauelsberg, and others, also found that keeping kids from school during the modeled pandemic didn’t entirely squelch the disease but did delay it. That technique could give researchers several months to develop or accumulate vaccines and antiviral drugs. “We’re just trying to buy time through hand washing and social distancing while we’re making the vaccine.” said Jeanne Fair, infectious disease expert at Los Alamos and lead analyst for the project.
So there you have it. They are forcing us to comply with draconian measures to slow the spread of a virus— even knowing that it is destroying the world economy, so they can impose forced vaccinations. It is clear to many that Covid-19 is not severe enough to warrant even a fraction of what’s been imposed on us, yet they continue talking about 18 months and second waves. This is intolerable and we can not put up with it. In fact, no illness, no matter the severity is worth wrecking the economy. Quarantine and medicate the sick the best you can. Everything else stays the same.
We are clearly in the midst of a social distancing experiment at great cost. It’s an experiment because there’s no way to prove that this has any effect on the natural progression of a contagious virus. In fact Sweden did not shut down their country and their curve is consistent with all the others.
More details about the social distancing experiment
I found another article on the Los Alamos Research Laboratory website funded by DARPA and NIH: Fast Spread of Covid-19 in Europe and the US and its implications: even modest public health goals require comprehensive intervention. There’s a lot of discussion about numbers of deaths and statistical models, but I won’t go into that. I want to highlight the section on implications to intervention strategies.
Implications to intervention strategies – “Hit hard, hit early” – Using our empirical estimates of the growth rates, we explored the implications for public health efforts needed to control the COVID-19 outbreak. We considered an outbreak scenario in a city with a population size of 10 million. Because it may take at least one and a half years for an effective vaccine to be developed and deployed, below we compared outbreak outcomes under different scenarios at 18 months. If our goal is that the total fraction of infected individuals is less than 10% at the end of 18 months, the growth rate has to be less than .025/day (ie. an extremely slow growth rate with a doubling time of more than 28 days). This suggests that moderate social distancing efforts will be insufficient to delay the epidemic peak beyond 18 months. On the other hand, if these targeted growth rates are achieved through very strong public health interventions, a little more effort would lead to an enormous public health benefit.
Later in the article:
Overall, in the absence of very strong control, the virus can cause high mortality and morbidity due to the high number of expected infections, which places an extremely heavy burden on even the most advanced health care systems. Thus, with COVID-19, half-measures will not be effective in meeting public health goals. Even for more modest goals such as “flattening the curve,” we probably need all feasible tools available, ie. extensive testing, isolation and quarantine, use of personal protective equipment, coupled with comprehensive social distancing. This is a strategy reminiscent of the ‘hit hard, hit early’ paradigm in treating HIV infected individuals.
I say no thank you to social distancing, quarantines, mask wearing, and digital tracking. I am aware that the virus is contagious. I believe the best strategy is for most people to acquire natural immunity by getting the virus. I don’t trust any vaccine that’s being developed at the expense of many, many lives through a collapsed economy. The elderly and those with underlying health conditions can self-quarantine until the virus passes. If they do get sick, they can try the malaria drug at the first onset of symptoms. Why are they going to such great lengths to vaccinate the entire global population?
Why aren’t government officials seeking other opinions about the best way to handle the virus without wrecking the economy? Please, I urge you to fight against this as hard as you can by protesting, calling your representatives, and expressing that you do not wish to have your economy ruined to save lives that would have probably been lost due to any virus that may be going around. Inform them that you do not want a vaccine, social distancing, quarantines or masks. We need to have a say in this or tyranny is here to stay. Recognize it for what it is. This is not about your health.
