RE: When Fudged Numbers Are The Norm

This reminds me a lot of the whole HIV thing when it was out. Realistically, most of those deaths weren't actually from HIV, it was just the fact that the persons immune system was so compromised that the pneumonia or whatever was able to take its toll. How quickly we forget about stuff like that. They need to affix the heading, died by whatever due to complications from Covid, etc. The sad thing is, the fact that the government and media continues to put out these erroneous numbers is proof of the fact that a large section of the population still believes them. They probably wouldn't do it otherwise.

So you are telling that The human immunodeficiency viruses does not kill people but weakened immune system does. Right. I hope you are not a doctor. I really do.

Nope, not a doctor, but it has been proven that many people died because HIV compromised their immune system so they actually perished from that ailment. Did the HIV contribute to it? For sure, but claim it was solely from HIV is a misrepresentation. Similar to what the author is posting here. Not sure where you hostility is coming from.

Ok lets say you were a doctor and your patient had HIV and as a result he dies of whatever, really it doesn't matter cause an HIV patient can actually really die from whatever, even a cold. What would be the most suitable cause of death? Would you give a death certificate that would state he caught the cold? I doubt it you would had to write down Human Immunodeficiency virus and the complication.

Mind you that HIV is called as such for the reason already stated. I am really curious. And in the end of the day, does it really matter what are we going to label it? The guy if it was any other guy without HIV wouldn't have die. Same goes with Covid-19 but it is deadlier and airborne its not a STD and to that is a pandemic(meaning a wide spread non-treatable highly contagious various) not an endemic virus like Influenza which people simplify down to Common Flu and at the end of the day there is a lot of herd immunity on it from a large part of the population (Its been around for 102 years). Back in 1918 when Influenza was a pandemic and there were no social distancing measures and medical science was literally 100 years less of effective as it is today spread like the plague and killed like the plague. The density of our modern cities and the interconnection of our modern world does not allow for taking it easy until we get the treatment, I am not hostile sorry I am being sarcastic. I just forgot to add the /s.

You make good points. I was just commenting on the original post. I was pointing out what I felt were similarities.

I totally disagree with the point of the post. But I still gave it a small upvote. It displays concern from a person that is trying to make reason out of what little know about the whole thing do I agree with the video and the way doctors are forced to pump some numbers for unjustified reasons. I think the top down ierarchy from government to science is wrong to begin with but seeing what happens lately all around me I kinda justify it because people it seems to only listen to fear. You know that if everyone was practicing social distancing from day 1 the spread would be 100 times lower the deaths would be 100 times lower and the economic impact would still have been the same. When people were going out to parties during a pandemic that is when they started to result to fear mongering and I am sure that is not a scientists specialty. The orders come from the office in charge. But really I am not sure if I totally blame them about it. I do know they exaggerate on their prediction models because they are not taking into account lockdowns and they are presenting always the worst case scenario.

Anyway at the end of the day it is just another virus. There will be a vaccine and there will be a treatment given time there will even be herd immunity, and everything will return to normal. Are they creating fear to pass secret bills restrict freedoms etc. Well I guess politics is a game of accumulating power right? I never in my life thought that politics serve the people, the people must serve itself politics are a fight over control against different ideologies or something in that lines.

P/s I am not here trying to offend you, I am a guy bored to death in quarantine posting my mind on the blockchain.
Keep safe.

I understand that, which is why I ended up giving you a follow after your first comment :) People violating the restrictions has been driving me nuts too. Heck, it gets under my skin when my wife wants to go to the store for stuff that we actually need. My neighbor has had people over pretty much every day and I just want to scream at them.

Thanks for the follow and sorry for my grammatical and syntax mess up. I just made a second read of it and it is embarrassing I am glad that I managed to communicate my point of view to you regardless.
We live in an era of too much information from to many unriliable mediums its easy to get the proper info only if you really know what is it you are searching for. Also the easiest way to consume information at video format is not always the best. Having doubts about info is a healthy sign it is critical for us to doubt the information we consume. Also the scientific truth is hard for mass consumption and it spreads way slower because it needs the receptor to have an understanding that lets face it we don't have or we would all be doctors. The conspiracy theories depends and evolves over the spread of emotional attachment and with much more down to earth arguments over simplifying stuff. I will not disregard anything though every possibility is a probability.

Personally I think that this virus it is going to radically transform our way of living as well. The thing to worry is how often Pandemics occur compared with climate change. We used to had 2 3 pandemics every 100 year that number is surpassed the last 20 years already. It will get worse and it is a really complicated matter. It's been said we are pass the turning point I am the exact opposite of a conspiracy theorist but even I think we have.

Check out the African Locusts plague. it isn't a virus but it is way more serious than it sounds and the mainstream media do zero reference to it.
