There’s little correlation between Covid-19 case rates and mortality rates, because the test used for Covid-19 is overly sensitive and labels many asymptomatic people as positive. If there were a relationship, rising case rates should have a much stronger relationship to mortality rates than they do. From Joseph Mercola at lewrockwell.com:
According to media reports, COVID-19 “cases,” meaning positive PCR test results, are soaring across the U.S. and around the world, leading to the implementation of measures that in some cases are stricter than what we endured during the initial wave.
However, as detailed in several recent articles, including “Why COVID-19 Testing Is a Tragic Waste,” PCR tests are being used incorrectly, resulting in the false appearance of widespread transmission.
In reality, the vast majority of people who end up with a positive test will not develop symptoms and aren’t infectious. Needless to say, if you’re not infectious, you pose no health risk to anyone, and being placed under what amounts to house arrest is nothing but cruel and unusual punishment for no reason whatsoever.
