I have written several articles on the coronavirus and on masks. A series of links have been provided at the bottom of this article for your convenience. This article will, however address a different aspect of the virus.
Covid-19 has been out for a while now, and it’s specificity has become a concern to me, and has caused me to give it some consideration. When it first came out the “experts” stated that it had not been manipulated or manufactured or “weaponized“. However, the recent track record of the these experts has less than stellar. Is because they have ulterior motives or are they not really experts? I am not here to question either. The goal of this posting is to discuss a concern that has arisen. These are my thoughts and because I do not have the resources to verify them, cannot be proven by me. It is my hope that someone reading this article may find it interesting and plausible enough to investigate it further.
The average person in this country cannot deny that we have many problems here. I am going to briefly discuss 2 of them. The first one is that thanks to World War II we have a large baby boomer population. After each war or a prolonged engagement this trend occurs. There is a separation of loved ones for a protracted period of time and the reunion takes place, let us say, certain activities occur quite frequently. The end result is an uptick in the number of new births. Because WWII involved a very large number of individuals, more than any other recent engagement, it has had substantial effect on our population. Well, that population is reaching retirement age. There is a great concern that there will not be enough money to pay for there retirement benefits, Social Security and pensions. The second problem is that we have a very large sedentary and obese population. The elderly population also enjoys an increase in the number of ailments, some requiring expensive hospitalizations. Frankly speaking our medical expenses as a country are very high, and as a result have become a burden to our economy.
Here is where Covid-19 comes into play. This virus has some unique properties. The Flu typically affects the population pretty evenly, young children in slightly higher numbers because of poor hand hygiene and their failure to cover their mouths when coughing and sneezing. In Covid-19 this trend doesn’t seem to matter at all. It seems to overlook the young population entirely and have little effect on any healthy portions of our population. Healthy people may get it, but it is in much lower numbers and the symptoms are usually mild. However, if you have a number of comorbidities, or are over 70 years of age, look out. This virus can be a virtual death sentence. So, how can this be, no other virus that I am aware of has this specificity. We still don’t have a cure for it, only treatments that improve the outcomes slightly are available. We have learned how to treat it more effectively, and as a result the prognosis for the seriously affected patients is somewhat better. Thanks to President Trumps’ policies, we are much closer to a vaccine.
If you look at the numbers of deaths involving Covid-19, the majority of them are in these 2 categories. Knowing this fact, what do several governors do? They put infected patients in nursing homes in many of our larger northern cities. Elderly people died by the scores. I am not going to say this was intentional, I don’t want to be sued. It just to seems interesting that this country has 2 major problems and Covid-19 the “cure” magically appears out of no where. What do you think? Is it a coincidence or is it something more sinister?
Origins of Covid-19:
Virologist whistleblower says COVID-19 was intentionally created in Chinese lab:
Dr. Li-Meng Yan:
The Chinese government intentionally manufactured and released the COVID-19 virus that led to mass shutdowns and deaths across the world, a top virologist and whistleblower told Fox News host Tucker Carlson Tuesday. Carlson specifically asked Dr. Li-Meng Yan whether she believed the Chinese communist party released the virus “on purpose.” “Yes, of course, it’s intentionally,” she responded on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Yan said more evidence would be released but pointed to her own high-ranking position at a World Health Organization reference lab as a reason to trust her allegation.
“I work[ed] in the WHO reference lab which is the top coronavirus lab in the world, in the University of Hong Kong. And the thing is I get deeply into such investigation in secret from the early beginning of this outbreak. I had my intelligence because I also get my own unit network in China, involved [in] the hospital … also I work with the top corona[virus] virologist in the world,” she said.
“So, together with my experience, I can tell you, this is created in the lab … and also, it is spread to the world to make such damage.”
Fox News previously reported on Yan when she blew the whistle on China’s alleged attempts to suppress information about its handling of the virus. With a vast network of contacts in Chinese medical facilities, Yan attempted to gather more information about the virus as China blocked overseas experts from conducting research in the country.
Her revelations fueled ongoing complaints that the Chinese government failed to tell the world early on about the virus’ threat. Specifically, she believes the Chinese government ignored research that could have saved lives. The State Department did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
In response, her former employer, the University of Hong Kong, criticized her account. A press release noted “that the content of the said news report does not accord with the key facts as we understand them.”
“Specifically, Dr Yan never conducted any research on human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus at [the University of Hong Kong] during December 2019 and January 2020, her central assertion of the said interview.”
Yan, who said she was one of the first scientists in the world to study the novel coronavirus, fled China and currently fears retaliation. She was allegedly asked by her supervisor at the University/WHO reference lab, Dr. Leo Poon, in 2019 to look into the odd cluster of SARS-like cases coming out of mainland China at the end of December 2019.
I have included this update on Covid-19, because I promised to update my articles when new information came to light. I have posted little snippets on my thoughts that Covid-19 was just too specific and caused to much damage for a Sars type virus. Maybe I have been vindicated. I am sure more information will come out. When it does I will add to this article.
Facebook and Instagram flagged posts from the Fox News show “Tucker Carlson Tonight” as false information on Wednesday, saying that they repeated information about Covid-19 “that multiple independent fact checkers say is false.”
The show posted a video on the social media platforms on Tuesday night with the caption “Chinese whistle-blower to Tucker: This virus was made in a lab & I can prove it.” The posts feature a segment in which Mr. Carlson interviewed Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese virologist who claims that the virus “is not from nature.”
Intelligence agencies have been skeptical that the pathogen can be conclusively linked to a lab. Scientists who have studied the genetics of the virus agree that it began as a bat virus and likely evolved to jump to humans. Many have dismissed theories that the virus infected researchers in a lab accident.
On Tuesday night, Facebook and Instagram placed screens of varying levels of opacity over images of the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” video along with a “false information” warning while also allowing users an option to watch it.
A similar post on Twitter, which has suspended Dr. Yan’s account, was untouched as of Wednesday afternoon. Twitter said in a statement that it had reviewed the tweet “and determined it does not violate our policies on Covid-19 misinformation.”
On Wednesday, Mr. Carlson’s show updated the captions to say that “Facebook is trying its best to censor this video.” In a separate Facebook post, Mr. Carlson’s team wrote that Facebook “is working hard” to prevent people from viewing the interview segment and vowed to address the situation on Wednesday’s show. The video has been viewed more than 478,000 times on Instagram and shared more than 62,000 times on Facebook. Earlier this week, a report about the virus, co-written by Dr. Yan, was published by two nonprofit organizations, the Rule of Law Society and the Rule of Law Foundation.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has pushed back against the notion that the platform is a right-wing echo chamber, but concedes that partisan content does lead to higher levels on engagement. Misinformation often plays into partisan narratives for this reason.
Facebook has taken increased action against posts containing misinformation about COVID-19, under pressure to address the misinformation on its platform.
- The social media giant has provided fact-checking resources to add warning labels to posts it thinks may contain coronavirus misinformation to provide users with more context about the virus.
- Facebook said in August that between April and June, it removed 7 million posts cited for misinformation about the pandemic and added labels to 98 million posts that were deemed false by fact-checkers, but not as harmful to warrant bans.
What they’re saying: “Facebook is working hard to make sure you’re unable to see our latest post regarding a coronavirus whistleblower,” Carlson posted. “They don’t want you sharing the video, and they are limiting the number of people who can view it. This is censorship, and we will be addressing it on our show tonight at 8 pm ET on Fox News.”
Worth noting: Twitter has suspended Yan’s account, but did not find that a similar post from Fox News of the clip violated its misinformation policies, per the Times.
So Facebook, knows more about the Coronavirus than a virologist who worked on the virus in China prior to its spread worldwide. Simply amazing, If facebook is so all knowing, why aren’t they solving all or problems?
Janice Barrow I copied this from the above article…”DTMD7 hours agoThe WUHAN lab is only HALF THE PUZZLE – the other HALF is how this Lab continued to receive funding from the NIH courtesy of Dr Fauci (and in clear violation of the BAN placed on GAIN OF FUNCTION research) which is what the movie PLANDEMIC 2 covers as well as the BOMBSHELL interview with Dr David Martin. That other HALF needs to be covered by Tucker too otherwise you should suspect there is something ‘fishy’ going on. Why would he NOT want to expose Dr Fauci at the NIH and his hand in facilitating the whole GAIN OF FUNCTION research out of China? Why would he want to cover his ass and only point a finger at China?
I have written a few short articles about Dr. Fauci, already, but I am going to write an in-depth article on his career and his handling of the Pandemic. So look for it in the next week or so.
