The Corona Virus and the Profits of Doom
Ask any member of the general public what a virion is and they will probably guess that they are an alien race out of Star Trek. Maybe they are in league with the Romulans, battling the Federation for inter-galactic domination. Or something equally outrageous.
Ask then what a virus is and you are likely to get an equally stupid answer. Is it something that nefariously attacks your computer and forces you to hand over all your savings to some pimple faced youth in Russia?
Or is it some small creature that hides around corner shops ready to attack the unwary and infect them with some deadly disease? But you can be protected by a piece of dish towel wrapped around your visage. Or perhaps you could stylishly chop up one of your girlfriend’s old bras to really make a tit out of yourself.
A virion is a piece of inanimate matter which has a potential to worm it’s way into certain cells in your body by chemical bonding and then replicate itself using said cells biology causing, in some cases, illness and even death. It then becomes a virus.
Even then, it is difficult to determine if the thing is alive or merely something which cause a chemical reaction which induces a cell to replicate the RNA of the virus along with the associated proteins used to house its nefarious purpose.
There are millions of the little buggers floating around in your body as we speak that do no damage to you whatsoever and may indeed co-exist with you to improve your body’s health.
Let’s extend this analysis to additional species, even though it might not be correct to do so. If we assume that the 62,305 known vertebrate species each harbor 58 viruses, the number of unknown viruses rises to 3,613,690 – over three times more than Dr. Morse’s estimate. The number rises to 100,939,140 viruses if we include the 1,740,330 known species of vertebrates, invertebrates, plants, lichens, mushrooms, and brown algae. This number does not include viruses of bacteria, archaea, and other single-celled organisms. Considering that there are 1031 virus particles in the oceans – mostly bacteriophages – the number is likely to be substantially higher.Virology Blog
Some of them make humans extremely sick. You really do not want to be infected with smallpox. Flu is nothing to be sniffed at. And, of course, they can kill. Flu kills hundreds of thousands a year and the graph below from wikipedia shows who it kills.
We as humans, have evolved with viruses. Evolution has provided us with an immune system that reduces infections and keeps us healthy. Otherwise our species and every other species wouldn’t be here.
It is no surprise that, a we get older our immune responses weaken and especially so in those of us who have, as they say, a comorbidity. Cancer, heart disease, diabetes, whatever. In essence, you are fucked. A viral infection, even as benign as the cold, can be fatal.
This segues nicely to the ‘corona’ virus. There are many corona viruses. The common cold is one of them. SARS-CoV2 is a novel virus. Which is just a fancy way of saying that it has evolved and has developed a new way of entering our cells to cause illness.
Let’s start with the Pareto principal. Otherwise known as the 80-20 rule. Imagine 1,000 people:
- 80% of the population are unaffected by the virus. 800 people.
- 20% are affected. 200 people.
- Of those 200 people 80% have mild symptoms or feel a bit ill and recover. 160 people.
- Of the 40 people left, 80% recover. 32 people.
- Leaving 8 People who are very sick
- Of those 8 people, 20% die. 1.6 people.
- 1.6 / 1,000 * 100 = 0.16%
Ultimately, we might find out that the IFR is even lower because numerous studies and hard counts of confined populations have shown a much higher percentage of asymptomatic cases. Simply adjusting for a 50% asymptomatic rate would drop their fatality rate to 0.2% – exactly the rate of fatality Dr. John Ionnidis of Stanford University projected.Breitbart (27th May 2020)
Well, OK. My arithmetic is simplistic and somewhat contrived. However, it matches the CDC who, by the way have not given Standard Deviations for their number.
We have all seen those horrendous positively skewed graphs showing COVID19 deaths but look at this graph which shows the age demographics of Scotland in blue with COVID19 deaths in red.
This blue bars shows the population of Scotland in real numbers. There are 5.436 million people in Scotland.
The tiny little red bars show the actual number of COVID19 related deaths by age group. These number are from published Scottish government figures.
The whole of the healthy population of Scotland was ‘locked down’ because of these tiny red bars.
Never mind that half of these tiny red bar numbers were due to the Scottish governments criminal handling of care home deaths which account for well over 50% of the numbers
Never mind that these numbers were inflated by the massively reduced services in A&E, Surgical procedures, Ambulance services and hospitalisations and almost non-existent GP services.
Scotland’s economy has been set back decades by a virus which has proved to be as virulent as a whale fart in the Irish Sea.
This information has been known since the start of this Grand Deception and still Sturgeon persists with her hysterical nonsense.
Hell fucking mend them!
