Old, but not forgotten.
WSJ: Are Covid Vaccines Riskier Than Advertised?
One remarkable aspect of the Covid-19 pandemic has been how often unpopular scientific ideas, from the lab-leak theory to the efficacy of masks, were initially dismissed, even ridiculed, only to resurface later in mainstream thinking. Differences of opinion have sometimes been rooted in disagreement over the underlying science. But the more common motivation has been political.
Not remarkable at all. Not to this wee small corner of the internet, anyway. The collapse of the order, and its inability to tell the truth, have long been known to us.
The Vaers data for Covid-19 vaccines show an interesting pattern. Among the 310 million Covid-19 vaccines given, several adverse events are reported at high rates in the days immediately after vaccination, and then fall precipitously afterward. Some of these adverse events might have occurred anyway. The pattern may be partly attributable to the tendency to report more events that happen soon after vaccination…
Four serious adverse events follow this arc, according to data taken directly from Vaers: low platelets (thrombocytopenia); noninfectious myocarditis, or heart inflammation, especially for those under 30; deep-vein thrombosis; and death. Vaers records 321 cases of myocarditis within five days of receiving a vaccination, falling to almost zero by 10 days. Prior research has shown that only a fraction of adverse events are reported, so the true number of cases is almost certainly higher. This tendency of underreporting is consistent with our clinical experience.
The authors: “Dr. Ladapo is an associate professor of medicine at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine. Dr. Risch is a professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health.”
Unbekoming Substack: A letter to my two adult kids: Vaccines and the free Spike Protein
Brett Weinstein [progressive in the so-called Intellectual Dark Web]…
Spike protein is very dangerous, it’s cytotoxic (Robert Malone, Steve Kirsch, Bret Weinstein) (bitchute.com)…
Here are some highlights from the Steve Kirsch article:
At least 25,000 deaths from the vaccine. The OpenVAERS team think it is over 20,000 due to under reporting. But we looked at the CMS database and it appears VAERS is under-reporting by 5X. And the CDC excess unexplained deaths are 25,000 as well. It matches up…
82% miscarriage rate in first 20 weeks (10% is the normal rate)…
In Israel, the adverse event tracking is much more accurate than the US. They found rate of myocarditis in vaccinated young adults is up to 25X the normal background rate for that age range….
That is only a small sliver of the evidence of vexxine harms from that piece. Read the whole thing for more.
But also recall all vexxines cause harm on purpose. They all use the biological theory no pain, no gain. So it’s always questions of how much harm and how much gain?
That our rulers pretend there is no harm, and try to silence all discussion of harm, proves them to be evil people.
The WHO released a statement saying kids don’t need vexxines (see last week for harms to kids). But they had to backtrack after some people noticed and started saying publicly what the WHO said. Make sense?
Is it still a conspiracy if the CDC admits it?
Item: Philippines President Duterte threatens to jail those refusing Covid shots and ‘inject vaccine in their butts’.
Sounds harsh, but recall our Transportation Secretary Peter Buttghey wants megacorps to issue vaccine passports so the government doesn’t have to.
England seems on course to mandate them. Canada is a solid maybe. Singapore perhaps. And so forth.
Our elite can’t seem to remember that if vexxines work, then vexxines work. So what if some don’t want them? What’s it to them? The only persons harmed, possibly, are those who knowingly refuse vexxines. And that was their choice. Isn’t “choice” the most important thing?
I heard a radio commercial this week that said something like “Come to Alaska. We have the highest vexxination rates. So you will be safe.”
Flu, as we have been pointing out since last February, has disappeared. Used to kill up to 650,000 globally every year. That’s not including pneumonia, either, which really racks up the totals.
Yet we don’t panic over flu. We are still panicking, but to a lesser extent, over the coroandoom. Some countries (besides Sweden—remember them?) are beginning to pretend to remember what others are still pretending to have forgotten about viruses, which is that most are never eliminated. Singapore, for instance, in that linked article is one of them. They are announcing that doom will ever be with us.
And it might even be called the flu once again. Which is to say, the flu might allowed to be recognized again.
LOCKDOWNS CAUSE HARM
Sweden, Florida, Nebraska, other localities never locked down. Did fine. Other places, England, Ontario, locked town tight and never want to let go of their fear. Even though there is no evidence lockdowns did anything except cause harm.
Item: Lockdown Trauma Causing 5-Year-Olds to Suffer Panic Attacks as Disastrous Mental Health Toll Revealed.
NHS leaders say that the impact of repeated lockdowns has left children fearful of leaving their homes or meeting their friends amid an explosion of “locked-in trauma.”
“Forecasts seen by this newspaper state that an extra 1.5 million children and young people will require mental health support “as a direct impact of the pandemic” during the next three to five years,” reports the Telegraph. “The calculations from the Centre for Mental Health, involving NHS economists, suggest demand will be as much as three times greater than the capacity of mental health services.”
One individual said that her daughter had a panic attack over a planned play date, while another parent said his 5-year-old was housebound and unable to go to school due to being traumatized by lockdown propaganda.
The more effeminate a culture becomes, the more fearful. The more fearful, the more prone to destruction.
We might have needlessly suffered during lockdowns, but at least the rich got richer:
New Harvard Data (Accidentally) Reveal How Lockdowns Crushed the Working Class While Leaving Elites Unscathed
— Brad Polumbo ???? ???? (@brad_polumbo) June 17, 2021
CULT OF THE MASK
New meta-analysis: Is a Mask That Covers the Mouth and Nose Free from Undesirable Side Effects in Everyday Use and Free of Potential Hazards?
Ignore the p-value:
The literature revealed relevant adverse effects of masks in numerous disciplines. In this paper, we refer to the psychological and physical deterioration as well as multiple symptoms described because of their consistent, recurrent and uniform presentation from different disciplines as a Mask-Induced Exhaustion Syndrome (MIES). We objectified evaluation evidenced changes in respiratory physiology of mask wearers with significant correlation of O2 drop and fatigue (p < 0.05), a clustered co-occurrence of respiratory impairment and O2 drop (67%), N95 mask and CO2 rise (82%), N95 mask and O2 drop (72%), N95 mask and headache (60%), respiratory impairment and temperature rise (88%), but also temperature rise and moisture (100%) under the masks. Extended mask-wearing by the general population could lead to relevant effects and consequences in many medical fields.
CASES AREN’T CASES!
Regular readers will know that I have been screaming for well over a year that mass testing programs of the unsymptomatic was largely responsible for the panic. The media, politicians, and even medicos called every positive test a “case”. Thus upending centuries of medical practice and terminology.
What our Experts called cases were only positive tests. Only a small fraction of these went on become true cases, and only a small percentage of those cases died. But calling all positives tests—in the face of rampant abused PCR tests, rapid tests, and so on—the disease could be made to seem much worse than it was.
How many times have we tried to remind ourselves that the Asian flu in 1957-58 and the Hong Kong flu a decade later were worse than the coronadoom, but with no panics? Because, in part, there wasn’t the mania for testing.
Enter the new paper in the Journal of Infection: The performance of the SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR test as a tool for detecting SARS-CoV-2 infection in the population.
Of 162,457 tested individuals, 4,164 (2.6%) had a positive RT-PCR test. The positive rate was lower among children aged 0-9 years (2.2%) and among adults aged 70 or more (1.6%), compared to the intermediate group aged 10-69 years (2.8%). The positive rate was strongly linked to the national SARS-CoV-2 test strategy. During the first and third phase of national testing, predominantly symptomatic people were tested. During these phases, the positive rates were higher than during the intermittent second phase corresponding to the summer season, when predominantly asymptomatic individuals were tested. The positive rate during the third phase was considerably higher than during the first phase.
I.e., testing drove the panic.
PCR Ct levels drove reporting of “cases”:
During the peak of testing asymptomatic individuals, only 0.4% tested positive with a mean Ct value of 28.8. Higher mean Ct values were observed among children aged 0-9 years (28.6) and adults above 70 years (27.0). Only 40.6% of positive tests showed Ct values below the threshold of 25, indicating a likelihood of the person being infectious (Table 1). In the small group of individuals for whom clinical information was available, symptomatic subjects had a markedly lower mean Ct value of 25.5 compared to asymptomatic subjects, who showed a mean Ct value of 29.6 (Figure 1).
In other words, the not sick were pushed into the “case” category with more force. Why?
No, I mean it: Why? See above about “conspiracies” etc.
In light of our findings that more than half of individuals with positive PCR test results are unlikely to have been infectious, RT-PCR test positivity should not be taken as an accurate measure of infectious SARS-CoV-2 incidence. Our results confirm the findings of others that the routine use of “positive” RT-PCR test results as the gold standard for assessing and controlling infectiousness fails to reflect the fact “that 50-75% of the time an individual is PCR positive, they are likely to be post-infectious.”
Website of similar name: price of panic.
Over 200 men and women gathered in New York City’s Columbus Circle on Saturday, June 26th, to rally and march for medical freedom. The effort was spearheaded by www.citizensfree.com.
In addition to the usual signs against forced “vaccinations” (technically, the injections are not vaccines) and so-called “passports”, there was a poignant aspect. Many wore small, white placards around their necks bearing the name and age of one individual who accepted the jab in good faith and died, usually within days.
There were also large posters featuring (mostly) young men and women who passed after receiving the jab. Here are some of their break-your-heart pictures.
After a little over an hour of speeches and presentations, the group marched en masse south along Sixth Avenue (Avenue of the Americas) to 42nd Street. There were some passersby cat-calls (expected) but also high-fives and supportive car honks (accepted!).
Overcast skies threatened the whole time. Undeterred marchers continued. Then, mirabile dictu! just as they reached their final rallying location of 42nd Street at Sixth Avenue, which fortuitously had a building that provided shelter from rain, there was a cloudburst.
Maybe Someone was looking out for us.
You must understand that we are in the strict minority globally. People enjoy the comforts their subservience brings them:

This explains the madness better than anything.
ALL CAUSE DEATHS
The week-of-the-year all-cause deaths.
Green line is 2021, red is 2020. The dotted line are all cause deaths minus COVID. That means the 2020 deaths that look out of place (above the mass of other lines but below the dotted line) are likely deaths caused by the panic.
The drop off at the end is late reporting. Those three black dots indicate the last three weeks. Three weeks from now, about 80% or so of all the deaths will have been counted. It can take, the CDC says, up to eight weeks to get a full count. So to be really sure, let’s look at eight weeks ago and earlier. This is week 17 and earlier.
See the dotted green line? That’s All Cause MINUS the COVID. Those numbers are way below where we’d expect them. You should be having a “Whoa, dude!” moment.
Why are the deaths so low?
Two most likely explanations:
(1) So many old people succumbed to COVID last year, that there were fewer people left to die this year. This likely accounts for some of the weird discrepancy.
(2) The CDC (and everybody else) is over-estimating coronadoom deaths. We’re back to the early “dying with” and “dying from” controversy, juiced by the variant panic. This is the most likely explanation.
Look: if the doom was not with us, we’d expect that dotted line to be hovering above all the other yearly lines, just because of population increase alone. And then we’d add the doom deaths, making the thick green line even higher. So that when we subtracted the doom deaths from the thick green line, the dotted line would be hovering.
Sources: CDC State data (source), CDC official toll number one, number two (the old weekly file, now suspect). Causes of death (source). Deaths by age. Covid & flu. WHO flu tracker. All current as of Monday night.
Daily tests (not shown; see here from Johns Hopkins) leveled off a bit. Around 570,000 a day. Panic won’t be over until this number sinks to same level as flu tests. That’s only tens of thousands in flu season.
CDC deaths “involving” COVID.
The real crisis has long been over. What people forget is that people will always, now and forever, die of the coronadoom. It’s the irrational expectation death will disappear that prolongs this.
Here’s more proof the crisis is over:
Heart disease and cancer and—update—unclassified are killing more people now. Stroke is now about the same as COVID.
Those unclassified deaths are curious! The codes indicate those times when the doctors aren’t quite sure why the person died. For instance, “Ill-defined and unknown cause of mortality”.
Notice the rise of these unclassifieds. Could they be related to the vexxines? The rise is certainly co-incident with rise in vexxines. This is a forbidden question on social media, so don’t ask it, or they will ban you. That’s how The Science works, by limiting uncomfortable questions.
Here’s the standard state comparison:
Does your state still have restrictions, like Michigan, which had 208 deaths per 100,000? Or is your state free, like Florida, with its much older and sicker population had 176 deaths per 100,000?
Ask your state legislator today.
Flu is still missing, but it’s always low this time of year, so I’ll skip the plot.
We heard the media try to juice the panic saying “variants” are spreading among the young. Now the Dreaded Delta! Look friends, as usually happens, mutants arise. They usually spread easier but are less lethal. That appears to be happening here.
That Eric Fing-Ding the epidemiologist, and many others, are doing their best shrieking to juice fear of the Dreaded Delta, especially in the UK, Australia (locking down again) and Israel. Uh huh.
Once again, I beg you will NOT discuss “cases”. Only look to important measures.
Also, as expected and as we have predicted, it looks like the Dreaded Delta is far less deadly, maybe about 7 times less deadly, as always happens with mutations of diseases like this.

The Safety of COVID-19 Vaccinations—We Should Rethink the Policy
From the results: For three deaths prevented by vaccination we have to accept two inflicted by vaccination.
Thank you for that link to the substack. It’s very good.
My mantra now for the past couple of months, when asked why I’m not “vaccinated”, is to say, “The chance of side effects from the vaccine is zero if you don’t ever take the actual shot. My odds of catching the ‘rona is small and my odds of having a severe case or dying even smaller. There’s no logic at all to getting that drug injected into my body.”
And now an interesting personal anecdote:
Twice in the past year I had illnesses that may have been the ‘rona: 1.) in February 2020, a few days after traveling through some busy airports, I had an off and on fever that wouldn’t go away, but aside from fatigue there were no other symptoms, and 2.) in the fall I had a run of the mill cold that caused a fever for about 12 hours, which had NEVER happened to me before.
I’ve been convinced that one or the other was the dreaded covid and that has also contributed to my resistance to getting the shot.
Flash forward to a couple of weeks ago, when a kid on my son’s baseball team tests positive and is mildly symptomatic. His sister and his mom test positive and have the full-on symptoms of no taste or smell and a fever. (his father and brother never got sick at all)
The day before the younger son tested positive, he and my son had shared a catchers mask at practice. Three days later, my son wakes up with a sore throat and a very mild fever. That night, I start to not feel not-normal, like I was on the verge of being sick but never actually got there. For 48 hours my blood pressure was up and I was having horrible heart palpitations and felt feverish but never actually had a temperature, and then just as quickly it was all completely gone.
A doctor friend of mine confirmed what I was thinking: I was almost certainly exposed to the covid this time and probably infected – through my son – and what I was feeling was my body’s acquired immunity, from the incidents in the past year, kicking in and fighting it off.
There is no way in hades that I’m not getting the “vaccine”. I’m bulletproof, baby. I might have been 95% reluctant before, now it’s 99.99% that I’m not going to purposely take that risk.
(And don’t even get me started on my 12 and 14 year old sons getting it…. WTF would anyone think that’s a good idea given relative risk factors?)
No way in Hades that I’m NOW getting it.
What a difference a typo can make!
A precis of the Australian situation. Most of the populations of the States of NSW, Queensland and WA in lockdown, with a Lockdown in the Northern Territory. Added to the lockdowns, South Australia and Tasmania have closed their borders to people from those States. A very serious situation you may think. Well, here are the numbers!!
Total deaths attributed to COVID in Australia in 2021 – ONE. That’s right just ONE – not one hundred or even one thousand – just ONE.
Total people in intensive care in Australia at the present time!! – ONE – That’s right as above just ONE.
The current situation is political because shortly after it all started the State Premiers here in Aus decided to move from “containment” to “elimination” so now we have this situation driven by their own egos and megalomania.
I have grown just as cynical as Briggs about the politician and the Medical Bureaucrats.
As to Fauci’s video comments above – lets wait six months and he will make a contradictory statement as per the masks edicts.
Woops sorry – just looked at the latest stats – 7 people in ICU in all of Aus. Still not even in double figures.
HBG: When a measles “outbreak” of 8 cases was a crisis (which we saw repeatedly in the US), everyone should have woken up and stopped this nonsense. Yet, no one did…….
Idiot Fauci does not understand (or blantantly lies about) THERE IS NO VIRUS IN THE SO-CALLED “VACCINE” FOR COVID. NONE. So there cannot be enhancement. Also, I think that idea has been shown to be false. It is possible using a live virus vaccine to actually increase disease occurrence. That happened in India with live virus polio and poor sanitation conditions. This is due to human error, not the vaccine. It’s tunnel vision on a vaccine without paying attention to reality. (Like DDT and using diesel oil as the carrier for spraying it. The problem was not the DDT.)
It’s interesting that if the “vaccine” has been correctly explained, you CAN spread Covid after “vaccination”. I use the quotes because there’s no term for the utterly fake method of pretending to vaccinate like Covid has given us. We are NOT NOT NOT dealing with a vaccine. It’s more like immune enhancement to fight cancer. There is NOTHING vaccine-like about this. (Vexxine is good, but I’m not sure it will catch on)
Again, you are saying we can use Wiki as an authority as long you quote that damn VAERS. PLEASE STOP CALLING THIS A SCIENCE SITE. The vaccine may or may not be safe, but using crowd-sourced lies is NOT the way to prove it. REALLY? WIKI IS NOW AUTHORITATIVE??????? (A bot can up the numbers in an hour, yet no one cares about rigid truth here?????)
Yes, it’s still a conspiracy if the WHO admits it. Conspiracy means it’s not spread by the left for the benefit of the left. Try to keep up.
I still don’t understand why you insist on not celebrating that Covid destroyed the flu…..There is basically a 100% correlation between the existence of Covid and the absence of flu. That’s good enough for every other “scientific cause”.
Lockdowns may cause harm because the dictator running the place is already causing harm. The lockdown itself may not be the real problem, but instead the little Stalin-wannabes running the country or state. Not to mention the level of stupidity in the lockdown areas is nearing 100% and stupidity results in fearfulness.
Delta is less deadly, but it also kills more vaccinated people than the unvaccinated. That is what the British government is quietly saying in Table 4 of this document: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/997418/Variants_of_Concern_VOC_Technical_Briefing_17.pdf
I’m pleased to see that the Substack piece mentions Scottish doctor and author Malcolm Kendrick.
I should add that I am writing from the UK.
Dr Kendrick’s book “The Great Cholesterol Con” (2008) was, when it came out, a very important part of my own attempt to disentangle truth from falsehood in the official diet/lifestyle advice that Western world governments hand out to their citizens, as promoted to me by my own physician.
His blog posts on covid are just as cogent, and he expresses very well the Alice Through The Looking Glass experience that everyone professionally concerned with public health must surely have faced, ie. “if what we are currently being told is true, then everything I know is wrong”. Eg. apparently, against all past evidence, you can make people healthier by impoverishing them (by closing down their businesses or their employers), I never knew that. Another example of this just occurred to me. It was always a well-known fact that construction and shop workers and tradesmen are reluctant to wear PPE, and will remove it when the supervisor’s back is turned: the reason being that you feel like an idiot if you have to wear, for example, workboots that make you look like Coco the Clown. We now know, however, that a large proportion of the public will take with alacrity to wearing security blankets on their faces, in defiance of actual evidence as to their effectiveness for the stated purpose, and usually with no regard to the instructions on the box. I shall try and do my best to reconcile these two observations, probably with reference to family photos from the early 70s in which we were all wearing bizarre fashions and thought nothing of it at the time.
Very interesting Pew Research publics study. I can guess what the China results would look like, if they had been included. Perfect score, no doubt!!
And now for my snarky comment. It looks like Taiwan, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia are all effectively part of China already.
It is simply a matter of time before the media starts blaming Trump for the vaccine mess.
Every time they ask me if I am vaccinated, I tell them as sincerely as possible that I am part of the Control Group. I am sacrificing myself to ensure that science can be done properly. There has to be a group of people who are not vaccinated to know whether or not the vaccine really worked.
I might be lying though. I am not sure I am sincere where I say it. I might be being sarcastic… Can I be sincerely sarcastic?
“That Eric Fing-Ding the epidemiologist…”
Actually, I think Feigl-Dingbat isn’t even an epidemiologist. Isn’t he just a nutritionist/diet guru who re-branded as a “Covid expert/epidemiologist” when he saw a good new grift opportunity?
They’re really pushing “Delta variant” fear porn now; I even saw some whackjob claiming a “Delta Plus” was about to ravage the world while saying he feels he’s living in a “horror show” in Florida because he sees people going about their lives without muzzles (even “un-vaccinated children” – Oh, the horror!). Some people are so attached to their Covid fear that it is now the central organizing principle of their lives, and they can’t imagine ever living again without it. Mental illness is the biggest pandemic ravaging this country.
Jordan Schachtel has a good article on his Substack about why “Delta variant” is being overblown and poses no significant threat. Contrary to claims from Biden, CDC, Fauci, WHO, et al., there is simply no evidence it is “more deadly,” or leads to more serious illness and hospitalizations (quite the opposite, in fact, if one looks at actual data).
Brad, that is my response, too. Although I add that I took the placebo. That usually causes them to shut-up.
If asked about the placebo, I say vitamin C, vitamin B3 and zinc”.
“82% miscarriage rate in first 20 weeks (10% is the normal rate)…”
This should jump out to the statistically-minded as either incorrect or shocking. I saw it in Kirsch’s piece a couple weeks ago and drilled down. The source is a letter commenting on an observational study (https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/nejmoa2104983). The study makes a flagrant statistical error in computing the miscarriage rate (which may not be estimable, given the data). The comment letter points out the error, then overcorrects with an even greater error to reach that 82% figure.
This comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement of the vaccines, but I am concerned about relaying misleading info, as it weakens the credibility of contrarian positions.
“Overall, a median of 55% across 17 publics say where they live has done a very or somewhat good job dealing with the coronavirus outbreak.”
Clearly these questions are very carefully phrased, so the results can be spun at will. That question is included in most most every “are we doing a good job?” questionnaire these days, and if I don’t have the option of not answering, I’ll answer “yes”, because the last thing I want to do is to encourage to them to do even more of the same nonsense. How would you answer the question, either yes or no, “Have we done a good job of torturing you?”
So I must respectfully disagree with the conclusion “This explains the madness better than anything.” There are few worse ways way to find out what people really think than by just asking them. People will answer an inconsequential question in a certain way for a myriad of reasons, but rarely is truthfulness among those reasons.
Iain Davis has penned a fine, big-picture analysis of the “pseudo pandemic” psyop:
Seeing more and more examples of parents going mask free, while forcing their (sometimes very young) children to wear masks. The idea presumably being that the children have not received “the vaccine” and thus must still wear masks.
The newest generation’s hatred of Millennials and Gen Y is going to make Gen X’s opinions of Boomers mild. (Of course, the new generation will hate Boomers too since they are still pushing “the vaccine” the hardest.)
“Seeing more and more examples of parents going mask free, while forcing their (sometimes very young) children to wear masks.”
I don’t know about the rest of the country, but here in KY I’m seeing little of this now as compared to a few weeks ago. On my last few trips to the park, I’ve seen no one in a mask (very few now at stores and other places as well – though I did see one woman walking downtown in 90 degree weather with a muzzle on yesterday – face meet palm), and most people everywhere seem now to realize masking kids is insane. Many staying firm in refusing the gene therapies as well, despite bribery attempts by state officials with special lotteries, etc. (thankfully my sister is adamant about not letting my 13 and 14 year-old nieces get it – too much potential risk from adverse reactions with no benefit for that age group. My oldest niece, who’s 18, had Covid, so has no need for the vax and is also firmly opposed to getting it. Funny how we’re told Covid spreads so easily, yet none of the other 3 people my eldest niece lives with got it, nor did I, my mom, or anyone else who was in contact with her within a few days of her testing positive. Very strange for a virus supposedly so contagious and scary).
I just hope people around here, and our idiot governor, don’t buy into the nonsense hype over “Delta” and other scariants and start trying to reintroduce the insanity of forced masking and lockdowns as we’re seeing in some jurisdictions.
I was finally able, after a full year of delays, to get my notary commission renewed downtown yesterday, and as part of the Oath had to swear that since the adoption of the present state Constitution I have not fought a duel, issued or accepted a challenge to fight a duel, or served as a second at a duel. But if Wannabee-Tyrant Beshear gets any new ideas over scariants later this Summer or Fall, I may have to break this oath. 🙂
>>>In February 2020, a few days after traveling through some busy airports, I had an off and on fever that wouldn’t go away, but aside from fatigue there were no other symptoms. JR Ewing 6/29 8:15AM
Same with me (also I didn’t have the full-on symptoms of no taste or smell), but in my line of work I was constantly around people who just got into town via air transportation from all over the world.
My very experienced physician is convinced I was infected with SARS-Cov-2. Not that he has any “real” evidence, but a cold/fever that comes and goes but doesn’t go away is indicative of a newly spreading corona virus that a relatively robust immune system fights off before producing virus specific antibodies. After the PA governor proclaimed lockdown, I was symptom free in about 5 to 7 days, and have been since.
Also, I have changed my daily routine to enhance my immune system. Vitamin C & D, Zinc, more exercise, much more time outdoors etc. And, for me, the best immune system enhancement; a water only fast for minimum of four days.
“Also, I have changed my daily routine to enhance my immune system. Vitamin C & D, Zinc, more exercise, much more time outdoors etc.”
Given the evidence that obesity is the #1 contributing factor to severe cases or death (https://twitter.com/AlexBerenson/status/1410089229447798784), this kind of lifestyle/exercise and general immune system enhancement/prophylaxis (including also widespread use of ivermectin) is what governments everywhere should have been focusing on instead of disastrous lockdowns, forced muzzling, etc. But then they’d be accused of “fat-shaming,” “body-shaming,” etc. (including “racism” of course, just because).
