Pandemic Parallax View
A striking feature of our culture includes the specific set of illusions presented by commercial print and broadcast media which promote a representation of reality through omission, distortion, lack of contextual analysis, and disinforming opinion stated as obvious, incontestable fact. It is always our choice what lens we adopt to view the world and our place in it. David Ratcliffe
  • Fact #1: The Infection Fatality Rate for COVID-19 is somewhere between 0.07-0.20%, in line with seasonal flu
  • Fact #2: The risk of dying from COVID-19 is much higher than the average IFR for older people and those with co-morbidities, and much lower than the average IFR for younger healthy people, and nearing zero for children
  • Fact #3: People infected with COVID-19 who are asymptomatic (which is most people) do NOT spread COVID-19
  • Fact #4: Emerging science shows no spread of COVID-19 in the community (shopping, restaurants, barbers, etc.)
  • Fact #5: Published science shows COVID-19 is NOT spread outdoors
  • Fact #6: Science shows masks are ineffective to halt the spread of COVID-19, and The WHO recommends they should only be worn by healthy people if treating or living with someone with a COVID-19 infection
  • Fact #7: There’s no science to support the magic of a six-foot barrier
  • Fact #8: The idea of locking down an entire society had never been done and has no supportable science, only theoretical modeling
  • Fact #9: The epidemic models of COVID-19 have been disastrously wrong, and both the people and the practice of modeling has a terrible history
  • Fact #10: The data shows that lockdowns have NOT had an impact on the course of the disease.
  • Fact #11: Florida locked down late, opened early, and is doing fine, despite predictions of doom
  • Fact #12: New York’s above average death rate appears to be driven by a fatal policy error combined with aggressive intubations
  • Fact #13: Public health officials and disease epidemiologists do NOT consider the other negative societal consequences of lockdowns
  • Fact #14: There is a predictive model for the viral arc of COVID-19, it’s called Farr’s Law, and it was discovered over 100 years ago
  • Fact #15: The lockdowns will cause more death and destruction than COVID-19 ever did
  • Fact #16: All these phased re-openings are utter nonsense with no science to support them, but they will all be declared a success
