“COVID-19 will go down as one of the political world’s biggest, most shamefully overblown, overhyped, overly and irrationally inflated and outright deceptively flawed responses to a health matter in American history, one that was carried largely on the lips of medical professionals who have no business running a national economy or government,” writes Cheryl K. Chumley in The Washington Times.
Here are some excerpts:
“The facts are this: COVID-19 is a real disease that sickens some, proves fatal to others, mostly the elderly — and does nothing to the vast majority.
“Do we need to still shelter in place? ask Dan Erickson and Artin Massih, doctors and co-owners of Accelerated Urgent Care in Bakersfield, California. “Our answer is emphatically no. Do we need businesses to be shut down? Emphatically no. … [T]he data is showing it’s time to lift,” Erickson said, in a recent interview.
“The scientists leading the coronavirus shutdown charge predicted in March that in America, between 100,000 and 250,000 would die. They based those estimates on (faulty) computer modeling.
“(However,) about 56,000 have died in America due to coronavirus — or have they? Again, the facts are flimsy.
“Congress passed legislation giving hospitals billions of dollars to treat coronavirus patients. Conflict of interest? Yikes. Yes.
“The coronavirus counts, already flawed from computer modeling, were then given another flaw treatment.
“[Pennsylvania] removes more than 200 deaths from official coronavirus count as questions mount about reporting process, data accuracy,” The Inquirer reported.
“It (doesn’t) justify the utter shredding of civil rights.
This overhyped, overreaching coronavirus crackdown (has) stretched on far, far too long.
“When I’m writing up my death report I’m being pressured to add COVID, says Erickson. “Why are we being pressured to add COVID? To maybe increase the numbers, and make it look a little bit worse than it is. We’re being pressured in-house to add COVID to the diagnostic list when we think it has nothing to do with the actual cause of death. The actual cause of death was not COVID, but it’s being reported as one of the diseases processes. … COVID didn’t kill them, 25 years of tobacco use killed.”
“Either politicians are too afraid to make any move that might come back to bite them politically or politicians are using this coronavirus to political advantage — to, say, pass gun control laws, like Virginia’s governor, Ralph Northam. Or to, say, float campaign hopes on the current ravaged economy, like former Vice President Joe Biden and oh, all the Democrats facing races.
“The coronavirus may be real — but the hype is hoaxed.”
