Coronavirus: Why can’t we trust a single statistic on the pandemic?

Multiple studies find that up to half of reported hospitalizations for coronavirus aren’t actually for coronavirus or are for cases with mild symptoms that likely don’t require hospitalization, calling into question panic-inducing reporting on the issue and raising questions of massive fraud.  In response, the public health experts claim this means the vaccine is working. … Continue reading Coronavirus: Why can’t we trust a single statistic on the pandemic?

Coronavirus: Is it time to admit the vaccines aren’t nearly as effective as advertised and we’re going to be stuck living with the virus for an indefinite period?

Biden is doubling down on vaccines with new mandates affecting a huge percentage of Americans, even as recent evidence indicates the efficacy of the vaccine wanes over time and the vaccine itself isn’t as effective against new strains like Delta.  Why is this evidence being ignored and where do we go from here? Last week,… Continue reading Coronavirus: Is it time to admit the vaccines aren’t nearly as effective as advertised and we’re going to be stuck living with the virus for an indefinite period?

Mandates, passports, restaurant requirements, and more: Making life “extremely” difficult for the unvaccinated

Coronavirus: The insane hubris underlying our entire response

We’ve never successfully controlled an airborne virus, cured or developed an effective vaccine for a coronavirus or the flu, or even successfully modeled anything as complex as a spreading, mutating virus, and yet we still continue to persist in the fantasy we can, despite all evidence. As the Delta surge continues and public health experts… Continue reading Coronavirus: The insane hubris underlying our entire response

The mRNA miracle: It’s not just vaccines

Concerns about the vaccines and the overall handling of the pandemic are well-founded, but don’t let that take away from a once-in-a-generation medical breakthrough that will power new, innovative treatments for decades. Concerns about the vaccines and the never-ending coronavirus crisis shouldn’t detract from the accomplishment of creating them:  The new mRNA technology powering the… Continue reading The mRNA miracle: It’s not just vaccines

Coronavirus: Variants, vaccines, and boosters, oh my!

The CDC says the vaccine is only good for 3 months of exemption from quarantine, booster shots every year are all the rage even with that limited impact, variants are about to cause another wave, and the tentative end date for the pandemic is a year away.  Are we really talking 730 days to slow… Continue reading Coronavirus: Variants, vaccines, and boosters, oh my!
