Here’s a good primer for those who only consume the legacy media. From Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.org:
Everything you should know about Covid
The virus is real. It is a danger to people with poor immune systems and to those with co-morbidities. People of any age could have impaired immune systems and serious illnesses. However, immune and health problems are more associated with the elderly as they have had a lifetime to engage in bad habits and non-healthy living. The vast majority of those whose deaths were attributed to Covid had co-morbidities.
Even so, the elderly stricken with Covid still had a high survival rate of about 95 percent. Everyone else had a 98 or 99 percent survival rate. It is impossible to have precise numbers because the data is skewed to maximize Covid deaths. Hospitals were given economic incentives to report all deaths as Covid deaths as long as the person had Covid or a positive PCR test. Allegedly, a person who died in a motorcycle crash was listed as a Covid death because he had a positive PCR test.
The real question is whether the people who reportedly had Covid died from it, or from the lack of treatment, or the wrong treatment. Initially, hospitalized Covid patients were put on ventilators and were killed by the ventilators until a doctor figured out that the breathing problem had a different cause than what they assumed and issued a warning. Other Covid deaths were due to the lack of treatment.
Remember, the assumption was that there were no treatments, thus the emphasis on developing a vaccine, but there were two highly successful, safe, and inexpensive treatments based on HCQ and Ivermectin. These treatments stood in the way of emergency permission to use untested and unapproved vaccines and were demonized for the sake of Big Pharma vaccine profits. So if you had Covid, they sent you home untreated until you got so bad that you had to be hospitalized, and then they killed you with ventilators.
In other words, we do not really know if anyone died from Covid itself.
