Discreetly Deleted From CDC Website: “mRNA and the Spike Protein Do Not Last Long in the Body”

How many Americans took the Covid-19 jabs because they believed people like Anthony Fauci or organizations like the CDC when they said the spike proteins didn’t stay in the bodies of the injected? Tens of thousands? Hundreds of thousands? Millions?

If reports that the spike proteins last indefinitely weren’t ignored by corporate media and suppressed by Big Tech, would more Americans have opted out of taking the “vaccines”? Absolutely.

Now, the CDC has discreetly removed from their website the important claim they’ve made from the beginning that spike proteins, whether injected directly into the body through J&J jabs or created by the body through the Pfizer or Moderna mRNA jabs, do not last long in the body.

CDC grilled after revealing it didn’t perform data analysis on COVID-19 vaccine doses

(July 26, 2022)

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) is demanding answers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention after the agency told a nonprofit group that it never conducted a mandated data mining analysis on reported adverse effects that followed the administration of COVID-19 vaccine doses.

The CDC is tasked with performing a proportional reporting ratio, or PRR, data mining analysis on a weekly basis to determine whether the amount of reported „adverse events“ following the administration of COVID-19 vaccine doses in the public Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, or VAERS, database is proportional to reported adverse events linked to the administration of other vaccines.

But the CDC said in a June 16 letter to Children’s Health Defense, a nonprofit group led by anti-vaccine activist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., that „no PRRs were conducted by the CDC.“ The CDC’s letter, which was in response to an FOIA request submitted by the group, added that „data mining is outside of th[e] agency’s purview“.

Elon Musk has been talking about an ‘underpopulation crisis’ for years. So why did the U.S. birth rate rise 1% last year?

But a new report released Tuesday from the National Center for Health Statistics, part of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention that compiles health data and science, reveals that birth rates in the U.S. are not collapsing, and in fact rose 1% in 2021.

“The 1% increase in the number of births in 2021 was the first increase in births since 2014,” researchers for the National Vital Statistics System, the division within the NCHS that produces reports using birth data, wrote. The data, which is based on registered birth certificates, is provisional and could be subject to change.

Biden Handing Over U.S. Sovereignty to WHO

(May 4, 2022)

Please take seriously the severity of this existential threat to everything free people hold dear. Do everything in your power to pass this report on to others and to find ways to communicate with and to influence people to stop empowering WHO to take over our national sovereignty and freedom.

On May 22-28, 2022, ultimate control over America’s healthcare system, and hence its national sovereignty, will be delivered for a vote to the World Health Organization’s governing legislative body, the World Health Assembly (WHA).

This threat is contained in new amendments to WHO’s International Health Regulations, proposed by the Biden administration, that are scheduled as “Provisional agenda item 16.2” at the upcoming conference on May 22-28, 2022.1

These amendments will empower WHO’s Director-General to declare health emergencies or crises in any nation and to do so unilaterally and against the opposition of the target nation. The Director-General will be able to declare these health crises based merely on his personal opinion or consideration that there is a potential or possible threat to other nations.

International Health Regulations: A big step toward a health dictatorship is imminent

(12 May 2022)

A US proposal to amend the International Health Regulations (IHR) is scheduled to be voted on at the May 22-28 World Health Assembly.

The proposal was sent to WHO member countries by the WHO Director General as early as January 20. However, the proposal was only made available to the public on April 12, and in a way that hardly anybody took notice. Mainstream media coverage is virtually nonexistent. I became aware of it through a May 8 report by the independent Austrian news portal tkp.at, which in turn learned of it only through a May 4 report by the portal America Out Loud.

The US proposal is characterized throughout by changes that would empower the WHO to declare health emergencies for countries and regions without involvement or consent of the respective governments, and to dictate countermeasures, even including the deployment of foreign teams of experts.

WHO Stealth Coup to Dictate Global Health Agenda of Gates, Big Pharma

Doing something with stealth means doing it in a secretive or concealed manner, to prevent it being widely known and possibly opposed. This applies to the proposal given by the Biden Administration to the Geneva WHO in January 18, 2022 according to official WHO documents. The WHO hid the details of the US “amendments” for almost three months, until 12 April, just a month before the relevant body of the WHO meets to approve the radical measures. Moreover, rather than the previous 18 month waiting time to become treaty in international law, only 6 months are used this time. This is a bum’s rush. The US proposal is backed by every EU country and in total 47 countries ensuring almost certain passage.

The proposals, officially titled, “Strengthening WHO preparedness for and response to health emergencies: Proposal for amendments to the International Health Regulations,” were submitted by Assistant Secretary for Global Affairs (OGA) in the US Department of Health and Human Services, Loyce Pace, as “amendments” to a previously ratified 2005 WHO International Health Regulations treaty. The WHO defines that 2005 treaty thus: “the International Health Regulations (2005) (IHR) provide an overarching legal framework that defines countries’ rights and obligations in handling public health events and emergencies that have the potential to cross borders. The IHR are an instrument of international law that is legally-binding on 196 countries, including the 194 WHO Member States.”

Wie die Berechnung der Opferzahlen weltweit zustande kommt

(15. April 2020)

Am 4. April gab das C.D.C. einen „Leitfaden für die Zertifizierung von Todesfällen aufgrund der Coronavirus-Krankheit 2019 (COVID-19)“ („Guidance for Certifying Deaths Due to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID–19)“) heraus. In diesem heißt es wörtlich:

„In Fällen, in denen eine definitive Diagnose von COVID-19 nicht gestellt werden kann, dies jedoch verdächtigt wird oder wahrscheinlich ist (z.B. wenn die Umstände innerhalb eines vernünftigen Maßes an Sicherheit überzeugend sind), ist es akzeptabel, COVID-19 auf einem Totenschein als „vermutet“ oder „mutmaßlich“ zu melden.“

Original:

„In cases where a definite diagnosis of COVID–19 cannot be made, but it is suspected or likely (e.g., the circumstances are compelling within a reasonable degree of certainty), it is acceptable to report COVID–19 on a death certificate as “probable” or “presumed.”

Und im letzten Teil, sowohl als kongeniale Selbstbegründung als auch äußerst pragmatische Handlungsanweisung:

„Wenn ein Todesfall auf COVID-19 zurückzuführen ist, ist er wahrscheinlich die zugrunde liegende Todesursache („UCOD“) und sollte daher in der untersten Zeile in Teil I des Totenscheins angegeben werden. Im Idealfall sollte auf COVID-19 getestet werden, aber es ist akzeptabel, COVID-19 ohne diese Bestätigung auf einer Sterbeurkunde zu melden, wenn die Umstände mit einem vernünftigen Maß an Sicherheit überzeugend sind.“

Original:

„When a death is due to COVID–19, it is likely the UCOD and thus, it should be reported on the lowest line used in Part I of the death certificate. Ideally, testing for COVID–19 should be conducted, but it is acceptable to report COVID–19 on a death certificate without this confirmation if the circumstances are compelling within a reasonable degree of certainty.“

(…)

Wo nahm nun aber das Statistik- und Medienkarussell der „Corona-Toten“ oder gar „vermuteten Corona-Toten“ seinen Anfang, dass der berühmten „mehrheitsfähigen“ Rotte des Homo Sapiens dermaßen den Kopf verdrehte, dass sie sich gleich die ganze Demokratie rausschleudern ließen?

Am 20. März hatte die Weltgesundheitsbehörde W.H.O. einen „Interims-Leitfaden“ herausgegeben. Original-Titel: „Global surveillance for COVID-19 caused by human infection with COVID-19 virus“. In diesem legte die W.H.O. drei Kategorien von Krankheitsfällen fest:

Verdachtsfälle („suspect case“)
vermutete Fälle („probable case“)
bestätigte Fälle („confirmed case“)

Als „Verdachtsfälle“ definierte die W.H.O.. neben vielen anderen hochinteressanten Parametern, u.a. alle Personen mit „akuter Atemwegserkrankung“, die mit „einem bestätigten oder vermuteten Fall“ in Kontakt gewesen waren – bis zu vierzehn Tage vor dem Auftreten von Symptomen.

Und als „vermutete Fälle“ definierte die W.H.O alle Fälle, in denen Testergebnisse nicht schlüssig waren, sowie alle „Verdachtsfälle“ die nicht getestet wurden.

Das kann man schon als genial bezeichnen.

Und dann wies die W.H.O. alle Gesundheitsbehörden weltweit an, „vermutete und bestätigte Fälle“ an sie zu melden.

Die verquere Aussagelogik der RKI-Zahlen

(heute)

Hinzu kommt, dass das CDC zur Dokumentation von Covid als Todesursache inzwischen eine eigene Leitlinie herausgegeben hat, in der die Durchführung eines Covid-Tests vor Dokumentation von Covid als Todesursache empfohlen wird, aber nicht als notwendig erachtet wird. Diese Vorgehensweise bietet eine mögliche Erklärung für die in den USA prozentual fast doppelt so hohen Covid-Todeszahlen im Vergleich zu Deutschland.

Das RKI hingegen behauptet nicht, Corona als sichere Todesursache angeben zu können; es wird der bekannte Ausdruck „mit und an Corona verstorben“ verwendet. Dennoch werden auch hier alle verstorbenen coronapositiven Patienten in einen Zahlentopf geworfen…

What is the background?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which manages COVID data reporting, does not distinguish between people hospitalized for COVID (meaning complications from the virus caused them to be hospitalized) or people hospitalized with COVID (meaning people who test positive for COVID after being admitted for reasons unrelated to the virus).

Women’s Periods May Be Late After Coronavirus Vaccination, Study Suggests

A study published on Thursday found that women’s menstrual cycles did indeed change following vaccination against the coronavirus. The authors reported that women who were inoculated had slightly longer menstrual cycles after receiving the vaccine than those who were not vaccinated.

Their periods themselves, which came almost a day later on average, were not prolonged, however, and the effect was transient, with cycle lengths bouncing back to normal within one or two months.

Coronavirus: Auch das Robert-Koch-Institut übernimmt “vermutete” Fälle und Todesfälle in seine Statistiken

(21. April 2020)

Am 22. März setzen Bundesregierung und Landesregierung in einer Videokonferenz das Grundgesetz außer Kraft und verhängten die allgemeinen Verbote, die hier nicht alle aufgezählt werden sollen.

Am 23. März schickte das „Deutsche Institut für Medizinische Information und Dokumentation“ (DIMDI), welches dem Gesundheitsministerium von Jens Spahn und damit der Regierung unterstellt ist, eine Meldung mit der Überschrift „U07.2 kodiert Verdacht auf COVID-19″ heraus und wies diesbezüglich an:

„Benutze diese Schlüsselnummer, wenn COVID-19 klinisch-epidemiologisch bestätigt ist und das Virus nicht durch Labortest nachgewiesen wurde oder kein Labortest zur Verfügung steht.“

Dies entsprach eins zu eins den W.H.O.-Vorgaben.

Auch den Umgang mit Todesfällen und Statistiken übernahm das Regierungsinstitut DIMDI von der W.H.O., praktischerweise in einer Übersetzung:

„COVID-19 –Kodierregeln für die Mortalität in der ICD-10 [bereitgestellt von der Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO)]

Beide Kategorien, U07.1 (COVID-19, Virus nachgewiesen) und U07.2 (COVID-19, Virus nicht nachgewiesen), sind für die Kodierung der Todesursache (Grundleiden) zugelassen.“

Am 25. März vermeldete das Robert-Koch-Institut in einem Situationsbericht:

„Das DIMDI hat einen neuen ICD-Code für den Verdacht auf COVID-19 eingeführt:
– U07.1 (COVID-19, Virus nachgewiesen ): Schlüsselnummer, wenn COVID-19 durch einen Labortest nachgewiesen ist, ungeachtet des Schweregrades des klinischen Befundes oder der Symptome.

U07.2 (COVID-19 o.n.A., Virus nicht nachgewiesen): Schlüsselnummer, wenn COVID-19 klinisch-epidemiologisch bestätigt ist und das Virus nicht durch Labortest nachgewiesen wurde oder kein Labortest zur Verfügung steht.“

Original:

„WHO requests that national authorities report probable and confirmed cases of COVID-19 infection within 48 hours of identification“.

Spätestens jetzt müsste allen klar sein, warum seit diesem W.H.O.-Leitfaden vom 20. März weltweit die Zahlen von COVID-Kranken gestiegen sind.

Ebenso dürfte klar sein, dass der am 4. März von der U.S-Bundesbehörde C.D.C. herausgegebene Leitfaden schlicht dem der W.H.O. vom 20. März folgte.

Jetzt zu den Todesfällen.

Wie das „Canadian Institute for Health Information“ am 26. März in einem Bulletin vermeldete, hatte die „Weltgesundheitsorganisation“ (Eigenbezeichnung) nennende Organisation hinsichtlich COVID-19 eine neue Definitionsnorm aufgestellt: Code U07.2 („virus not identified“). Im Gegensatz zur bisherigen alleinigen Definitionsnorm Code U07.1, welche nur bestätigte Fälle von COViD-19 umfasste, galt Code U07.2 nun auch für alle Verdachtsfälle, die lediglich „klinisch oder epidemiologisch diagnostiziert“ wurden, aber deren Testergebnisse „unschlüssig“ waren oder bei denen gar keine Tests durchgeführt worden waren.

Und wie zählt nun die W.H.O. weltweit die Todesfälle durch COVID-19?

„Sowohl U07.1 als auch U07.2 können zur Kodierung der Mortalität als Todesursache verwendet werden.“

Oder einfach gesagt: nach eigener Definition erfasst die „Weltgesundheitsorganisation“ seit Ende März nicht nur bestätigte, sondern auch Verdachtsfälle als „Corona-Tote“. Verdachtsfälle, deren Definition wiederum den jeweiligen Gesundheitsbehörden aller ehrenwerten Staaten weltweit zur Interpretation ausgeliefert sind.

Die Toten-Verschleierung: Die US-Gesundheitsbehörde CDC weist Impf-Todesfälle als Ungeimpfte aus.

Gemäß der US-Gesundheitsbehörde CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) gelten Sie erst dann als vollständig geimpft, wenn im Falle von Pfizer oder Moderna seit der zweiten Injektion volle 14 Tage vergangen sind beziehungsweise im Falle von Janssen 14 Tage nach der ersten Dosis, obwohl mehr als 80 Prozent der Todesfälle nach der Impfung in diesem Zeitfenster auftreten. Wie praktisch!

Jeder, der innerhalb der ersten 14 Tage nach der Injektion stirbt, wird als nicht geimpfter Todesfall gezählt.

Why has the CDC stopped collecting data on breakthrough Covid cases?

(06.08.2021)

The CDC used to be more thorough in its surveillance of breakthrough cases. It tracked them all between 1 January and 30 April of this year, counting 10,262 in that time frame. But on 1 May, the agency changed its strategy to investigate only breakthrough cases that led to hospitalization or death.

Shockingly, CDC Now Lists Vaccinated Deaths as Unvaccinated

For example, the CDC has quietly changed the definition of “vaccine,” apparently in an attempt to validate calling the COVID mRNA gene therapies vaccines. In an August 26, 2021, archived version7 of vaccine, the CDC defines it as a “product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease.”

But a few days later, a new definition appeared on the CDC’s website,8 which now says a vaccine is a “preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases.” The differences in the definitions are subtle but distinct: The first one defined a vaccine as something that will “produce immunity.”

OP ED by Dr. Joeseph Mercola: CDC Now Lists Some Vaccinated Deaths as Unvaccinated

(16.09.2021)

Anyone who dies within the first 14 days post-injection is counted as an unvaccinated death. Not only does this inaccurately inflate the unvaccinated death toll, but it also hides the real dangers of the COVID shots, as the vast majority of deaths from these shots occur within the first two weeks.

The CDC also has two different sets of testing guidelines — one for vaccinated patients and another for the unvaccinated. If you’re unvaccinated, CDC guidance says to use a cycle threshold (CT) of 40, known to result in false positives. If you’re vaccinated, they recommend using a CT of 28 or less, which minimizes the risk of false positives

Merriam-Webster gives „vaccine“ a new definition

(April 30, 2021)

Prefatory note: In this post, I take the noun „vaccine“ as the basic word under discussion, but also consider other cognate terms („vaccinate“, „vaccination“).

Here’s a standard dictionary entry for „vaccine“:

n.

1. any preparation of weakened or killed bacteria or viruses introduced into the body to prevent a disease by stimulating antibodies against it.
2. the virus of cowpox, used in vaccination, obtained from pox vesicles of a cow or person.
3. a software program that helps to protect against computer viruses.

COVID-19 Vaccine Breakthrough Case Investigation and Reporting

For the purpose of this surveillance, a vaccine breakthrough infection is defined as the detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA or antigen in a respiratory specimen collected from a person ≥14 days after they have completed all recommended doses of a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-authorized COVID-19 vaccine.

Identifying and investigating hospitalized or fatal vaccine breakthrough cases

CDC monitors reported hospitalized or fatal vaccine breakthrough cases for clustering by patient demographics, geographic location, time since vaccination, vaccine type, and SARS-CoV-2 lineage. Reported data include hospitalized or fatal breakthrough cases due to any cause, including causes not related to COVID-19.

Wie die Berechnung der Opferzahlen weltweit zustande kommt

(15. April 2020)

Am 20. März hatte die Weltgesundheitsbehörde W.H.O. einen „Interims-Leitfaden“ herausgegeben. Original-Titel: „Global surveillance for COVID-19 caused by human infection with COVID-19 virus“. In diesem legte die W.H.O. drei Kategorien von Krankheitsfällen fest:

Verdachtsfälle („suspect case„)
vermutete Fälle („probable case„)
bestätigte Fälle („confirmed case„)

Als „Verdachtsfälle“ definierte die W.H.O.. neben vielen anderen hochinteressanten Parametern, u.a. alle Personen mit „akuter Atemwegserkrankung“, die mit „einem bestätigten oder vermuteten Fall“ in Kontakt gewesen waren – bis zu vierzehn Tage vor dem Auftreten von Symptomen.

Und als „vermutete Fälle“ definierte die W.H.O alle Fälle, in denen Testergebnisse nicht schlüssig waren, sowie alle „Verdachtsfälle“ die nicht getestet wurden.

Das kann man schon als genial bezeichnen.

Und dann wies die W.H.O. alle Gesundheitsbehörden weltweit an, „vermutete und bestätigte Fälle“ an sie zu melden. Zitat:

„Die WHO fordert die nationalen Behörden auf, vermutete und bestätigte Fälle von COVID-19-Infektionen innerhalb von 48 Stunden nach der Identifizierung zu melden“

Original:

„WHO requests that national authorities report probable and confirmed cases of COVID-19 infection within 48 hours of identification“.

Spätestens jetzt müsste allen klar sein, warum seit diesem W.H.O.-Leitfaden vom 20. März weltweit die Zahlen von COVID-Kranken gestiegen sind.

Ebenso dürfte klar sein, dass der am 4. März von der U.S-Bundesbehörde C.D.C. herausgegebene Leitfaden schlicht dem der W.H.O. vom 20. März folgte.

Jetzt zu den Todesfällen.

Wie das „Canadian Institute for Health Information“ am 26. März in einem Bulletin vermeldete, hatte die „Weltgesundheitsorganisation“ (Eigenbezeichnung) nennende Organisation hinsichtlich COVID-19 eine neue Definitionsnorm aufgestellt: Code U07.2 („virus not identified“). Im Gegensatz zur bisherigen alleinigen Definitionsnorm Code U07.1, welche nur bestätigte Fälle von COViD-19 umfasste, galt Code U07.2 nun auch für alle Verdachtsfälle, die lediglich „klinisch oder epidemiologisch diagnostiziert“ wurden, aber deren Testergebnisse „unschlüssig“ waren oder bei denen gar keine Tests durchgeführt worden waren.

Und wie zählt nun die W.H.O. weltweit die Todesfälle durch COVID-19?

„Sowohl U07.1 als auch U07.2 können zur Kodierung der Mortalität als Todesursache verwendet werden.“

Oder einfach gesagt: nach eigener Definition erfasst die „Weltgesundheitsorganisation“ seit Ende März nicht nur bestätigte, sondern auch Verdachtsfälle als „Corona-Tote“. Verdachtsfälle, deren Definition wiederum den jeweiligen Gesundheitsbehörden aller ehrenwerten Staaten weltweit zur Interpretation ausgeliefert sind.

What the blog doesn’t reveal is that Palantir’s client list has included amomgst others, the CIA, the FBI, the NSA, the Centre for Disease Control, the Marine Corps, the Air Force, Special Operations Command, West Point and the IRS.

Furthermore, in 2016, it was revealed Palantir had a $34.6m contract with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and helped the Customs and Border Protection Agency create the Analytical Framework for Intelligence (AFI) system to track immigrants.

Nor does the blog mention that Palantir worked for UK intelligence and was awarded contracts to handle vast data sets on UK citizens for British spy agency GCHQ.

Inside Palantir’s work with the CDC, HHS to synthesize COVID-19 data

(02.04.2020)

Palantir said it is not involved in the harvesting or storage of health data but is working with the CDC and HHS to provide its Foundry suite of tools to analyze the agencies’ COVID-19 data. The set of data tools has the power to “clean” and “harmonize” the information flowing in from local hospitals, states and other sources related to the virus, according to a source with knowledge of the arrangement between the company and the government.

Last month, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awarded the contract for this platform to Palantir Technologies, a secretive data-mining firm known for its work with the Pentagon, intelligence agencies and law enforcement during the so-called global war on terrorism. The HHS Protect Now platform will aggregate data from at least 187 different sources, including the federal government, state and local governments, hospitals, and the private sector.

Verdachtsfälle („suspect case“)
vermutete Fälle („probable case“)
bestätigte Fälle („confirmed case“)

Als „Verdachtsfälle“ definierte die W.H.O.. neben vielen anderen hochinteressanten Parametern, u.a. alle Personen mit „akuter Atemwegserkrankung“, die mit „einem bestätigten oder vermuteten Fall“ in Kontakt gewesen waren – bis zu vierzehn Tage vor dem Auftreten von Symptomen.

Und als „vermutete Fälle“ definierte die W.H.O alle Fälle, in denen Testergebnisse nicht schlüssig waren, sowie alle „Verdachtsfälle“ die nicht getestet wurden.

Das kann man schon als genial bezeichnen.

Und dann wies die W.H.O. alle Gesundheitsbehörden weltweit an, „vermutete und bestätigte Fälle“ an sie zu melden. Zitat:

What is Covid-19, SARS-2. How is it Tested? How is It Measured? The Fear Campaign Has No Scientific Basis

The data and concepts have been manipulated with a view to sustaining the fear campaign.

The estimates are meaningless. The figures have been hyped to justify the lockdown and the closure of the national economy, with devastating economic and social consequences. The Virus is held responsible for poverty and mass unemployment.

Confirmed by prominent scientists as well as by official public health bodies including the World Health Organization (WHO) and the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Covid-19 is a public health concern but it is NOT a dangerous virus.

The COVID-19 crisis is marked by a public health “emergency” under WHO auspices which is being used as a pretext and a justification to trigger a Worldwide process of economic, social and political restructuring. Social engineering is being applied. Governments are pressured into extending the lockdown, despite its devastating economic and social consequences.

There is no scientific basis for implementing the closing down of the global economy as a means to resolving a public health crisis.

Both the media and the governments are involved in spreading disinformation.

Technical Notes: Provisional Death Counts for Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

Coronavirus disease deaths are identified using the ICD–10 code U07.1. Deaths are coded to U07.1 when coronavirus disease 2019 or COVID-19 are reported as a cause that contributed to death on the death certificate. These can include laboratory confirmed cases, as well as cases without laboratory confirmation. If the certifier suspects COVID-19 or determines it was likely (e.g., the circumstances were compelling within a reasonable degree of certainty), they can report COVID-19 as “probable” or “presumed” on the death certificate (5, 6).

CDC wants states to count ‘probable’ coronavirus cases and deaths, but most aren’t doing it

(08.06.2020)

In April, as coronavirus infections multiplied and laboratory testing was limited, the CSTE and the CDC advised states to count both probable cases and deaths — where symptoms and exposure pointed to infection — along with those confirmed by tests.

Yet weeks after the guidance was handed down to standardize coronavirus reporting, a Post review found states as of early June counting cases and deaths in all sorts of ways.

At least 24 states are not heeding the national guidelines on reporting probable cases and deaths, despite previously identifying probable cases in other national outbreaks, including H1N1 flu during the country’s last pandemic in 2009.

Assessment of the CDC’s New COVID-19 Data Reporting

(18.05.2020)

– The new testing data from the CDC, however, differs from official testing data reported by state health departments. In 29 states, the raw numbers fall within 10% of each other, while in 13 states, the data diverges by 25% or more. Adjusting for different reporting methodologies does not fully explain these differences.

– Small variations in these datasets are to be expected, but large gaps are cause for concern. For many states, the CDC publishes higher testing numbers than the states themselves report, which raises questions about the structure and integrity of both state and federal data reporting.

– Another point of contrast between the CDC’s new reporting and the official state data compiled by The COVID Tracking Project is that the CDC has not released historical, state-level testing data for the first three months of the outbreak. Until we can reconcile the
CDC’s new data with the state-reported data that makes up our historical dataset, the new data is of limited use to disease modelers and other COVID-19 data users.

But inside the West Wing, officials said there have been steady doubts about coronavirus figures arriving from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, either because they are behind or potentially skewed. In meetings of the White House task force, senior officials have raised questions about how the agency is compiling and tracking its data.

The death count questions illustrate the degree to which Trump and his allies have begun to scrutinize the data and advice emerging from government sources: Death counts are questioned, models are doubted, recommendations are debated and discarded and medical experts — even those widely trusted by the American people — are viewed with suspicion.

Panik vor Schweinegrippe: Produkt im Zeichen des Genoismus

(25. April 2009)

Dieser seltsame Ausbruch, der die mexikanischen Behörden dazu veranlasste 20 Millionen aufzufordern sich nicht mehr auf die Wange zu küssen oder die Hände zu schütteln, beförderte auch dank dem CDC erst einmal die Gen- und Pharmaindustrie. Das US-Seuchenzentrum behauptete nämlich, dass die dass die Pharmaprodukte Tamiflu und Relenza gegen die (trotzdem immer noch unheilbare) Grippe „bei frühzeitiger Einnahme helfen könnten“ (1). Der Produzent von Tamiflu, der Konzern Hoffmann-La Roche (3), erklärte dann auch als Retter in der Schweinenot sogleich, er könne schnell weitere Produkte an die in höchster Gefahr schwebenden Kunden ausschütten.

Der mexikanische Gesundheitsminister José Angel Cordova bekundete denn auch gleich seinen Status als Hellseher. Er habe nämlich bereits in weiser Voraussicht Tamiflu für eine Million Menschen vorrätig.

Von dem Produkt profitiert übrigens auch massgeblich der beste US-Verteidigungsminister aller Zeiten, Donald Rumsfeld. Denn entwickelt wurde Tamiflu in den Laboren des Gen-, Bio- und Chemiekonzern „Gilead Science“ (4), welche übrigens einen extrem religiösen Namen verwendet (5). Nach der Entwicklung wurde Tamiflu an Hoffmann-La Roche verkauft. Doch bis heute verdient „Gilead Science“ über Lizenzen an den Produkt. So verdiente Donald Rumsfeld, als Mitaktionär des „Gilead“-Konzerns, dank der Panik um die Vogelgrippe im Jahre 2005 allein in 6 Monaten am Tamiflu-Boom eine Million Dollar. (6)

Für die beteiligten Konzerne war die Panik ein Riesengewinn. Hatten die gesamten Einnahmen aus Tamiflu im dritten Quartal noch weltweit bei 1.7 Millionen Dollar gelegen, verdiente „Gilead Science“ ab Mitte 2005 allein aus den Lizenzeinnahmen innerhalb von drei Monaten 26,2 Millionen Dollar. So ähnlich wird es wohl auch diesmal laufen.

Der so faszinierend aus drei Spezies von drei Kontinenten – simsalabim – zusammengebastelte neue Misch-Mensch-Tier-Erreger fällt in eine durch elitäre Kreise unter Zeitdruck hektisch betriebene Auflösung der Menschenrechte sowie des Menschen selbst als natürliche Spezies.

WOW! I finally found the numbers I was looking for. Here is chart of TOTAL weekly deaths in NYC this year, by the week. This reveals that death totals have LOWERED in the city since the pandemic. Any media claiming that there are MORE bodies, is lying.

What’re the criteria for determining #coronavirus is the cause of death for a person with serious pre-existing health conditions? I ask because eagerness to inflate numbers might lead to overzealousness. #Coronavirustruth #COVID19 @realDonaldTrump #CDC @CDCgov

What is the criteria to count COVID-19 deaths in the US?

COVID-19 as the the main cause of death?

Any dead person who test positive for it?

Do we distinguish between deaths WITH COVID-19 vs BECAUSE OF COVID-19?

Do all states use the same criteria?
