A Totalitarian Virus, by Jane Orient, MD.

A physician traces the imposition of coronavirus totalitarianism. From Doctor Jane Orient at lewrockwell.com:

Civil Defense Perspectives May 2020 (vol. 35 #3)

A virus is not exactly alive itself. It is a bundle of chemicals so arranged that they attach to a living host’s cell membranes and are transported into the cell. The cell’s own metabolic machinery then begins to use the viral genetic blueprint to make more viruses. The raw materials, the chemical energy, the milieu that permits the synthesis of viral components to occur (such as pH and temperature) are all supplied by the host cell, bringing about its own destruction. The virus released into the environment can then repeat the cycle in other hosts, until there are no more receptive hosts because they are isolated, immune, or dead.

As viruses are replicated, many errors (mutations) occur, especially in RNA viruses, so that progeny may be more or less effective in causing infection.

All viral pandemics have come to an end, even those that have been far more devastating than the current COVID-19.

The world is full of pathogenic organisms. Animals survive only because their immune defense mechanisms rid them of the invaders or keep them in check. At times, an over-exuberant immune reaction, instead of the virus itself, kills the host.

  1. “Many deaths in COVID-19 are attributed to a cytokine storm”
    I had never heard of “cytokine storm” until COVID-19 appeared. On Father’s Day evening, I was admitted to the hospital for “left lower leg cellulitis” and was treated with 5 different IV antibiotics for 3 days. On discharge, I noticed the acronym “SIRS” as one of my diagnoses which I also had never heard of. It is a subset of “cytokine storm”. Below is the Wikipedia writeup on SIRS for others to avoid being so uninformed. I must have had the world’s mildest case as I never was that ill.

    SIRS is a serious condition related to systemic inflammation, organ dysfunction, and organ failure. It is a subset of cytokine storm, in which there is abnormal regulation of various cytokines. SIRS is also closely related to sepsis, in which patients satisfy criteria for SIRS and have a suspected or proven infection.
