Increasingly often, leading immunologists across the globe come to the conclusion that the official information about the coronavirus is inadequate, but their voices are being silenced, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on May 15 in “The Meaning of the Game” broadcast published on the movement’s YouTube channel.
“Experts very often know what they are talking about, and they are clearly being silenced,” Kurginyan noted. The Essence of Time leader added, “I am not refuting the reports of doctors astonished by the fact of who exactly are filling the hospitals. I am not saying that COVID-19 is nothing serious. Indeed, I believe that my task is to organize professional opinions in a structured manner and to find out what is behind them.”
The expert referred to a statement by Stanford University professor of epidemiology, virology, and statistics John Ioannidis. According to the scientist, three months after the outbreak of the pandemic, most countries, including the USA, cannot test large numbers of people. At the same time, none of the countries has any reliable data on the spread of the virus in a representative random sample of the population as a whole.
According to John Ioannidis, “This evidence fiasco creates tremendous uncertainty about the risk of dying from Covid-19. Reported case fatality rates, like the official 3.4% rate from the World Health Organization, cause horror — and are meaningless.”
A group of French doctors confirms Ioannidis’s estimates; it came to a conclusion that the lethality of COVID-19 shows no significant difference from that of acute respiratory infections caused by previously known coronaviruses. The problem of COVID-19 “is apparently overestimated,” the French experts believe. The note that four different coronaviruses are currently spreading in the world; they have infected millions of people, often asymptomatically, but have low lethality.
Kurginyan reminded of an article with data for Wuhan, where COVID-19 was originally reported, provided by a group of American and Chinese virologists in the world’s most authoritative medical journal, Nature Medicine. According to the researchers, the risk of fatal outcome in areas outside the province of Hubei was 0.85%, and for Wuhan it was 1.2-1.4%, which agrees well with Ioannidis’s data.
Meanwhile, the BMJ international medical journal, referring to investigations by leading international scientists, reports that an overwhelming majority of coronavirus infections are asymptomatic. Professor of clinical immunology at the University of Florence Sergio Romagnani notes that a majority of people infected with the coronavirus exhibit no symptoms. Romagnani’s information is based on a study in a completely isolated village with a population of about three thousand people in northern Italy, one of the infection sites.
“Is Romagnani a troublemaker, a storyteller, a science fiction writer?” Sergey Kurginyan commented. “He is a professor of clinical immunology at the University of Florence, a major European university! And he is citing specific researchers.”
Austrian health professionals also agree with their Italian, American, and Chinese colleagues. The Center for Medical Statistics of the University of Vienna carried analyzed mortality data for Austria for the first decade of April, and it came to a conclusion that the curve of COVID-19 fatal outcomes was “approximately consistent with the ‘normal’ mortality curve for men and women in certain age populations.” In other words, most people with a positive coronavirus test died of old age, professionals believe.
In “The Meaning of the Game” broadcast, the Essence of Time leader said, “Meanwhile, the situation is extremely serious. The coronavirus does not exist on its own, outside of certain schemes in education and politics, outside of military and economic schemes.”
