It's something important you want to know.

  1. As per the data from the best-studied countries such as South Korea, Iceland, Germany and Denmark, the overall lethality of Covid19 is between 0.1% and 0.4% and thus up to twenty times lower than initially assumed by the WHO.
  2. According the study in Nature Medicine comes to a similar conclusion even for Wuhan (the city in China). Significantly higher values at the initial level for Wuhan were obtained because many people with only mild or no symptoms were not recorded.
  3. 45% to 75% of positive tests individuals remain symptom-free. Even among the 70 to 78 year old persons about 60% remain symptom-free, many more show only mild symptoms.
  4. The median age of the deceased in most of the country (including Italy) is over 80 years and only about 1% of the deaths had no critical previous history of illnesses. The age and risk profile of deaths thus essentially belongs to normal mortality. Up to 59% of all coronavirus-related deaths have occurred in specifically vulnerable nursing homes.
  5. Lot of media reports of healthy young people dying from Covid19 have proven to be false upon closer inspection. Many of them either did not die from coronavirus or they in fact had critical preconditions (like undiagnosed leukaemia).
  6. Normal overall mortality in the US is about 7500 people per day, in Germany about 2500 people and in Italy about 1700 people per day. Influenza mortality in the US is up to 79,000, in Germany and Italy up to 24,000, and in Switzerland up to 1400 people per winter.
  7. Increased death rates, like northern Italy, can be influenced by additional risk factors such as very high air pollution and microbial contamination as well as a collapse in the care of the sick and elderly due to lockdown measures and mass panic.
  8. In the countries like Italy and Spain, and to some extent Great Britain and the US, a serious overload of hospitals, notably by the flu, is not unusual. Aditionally, up to 15% of doctors and nurses currently have to self-quarantine, even if they develop no symptoms.
  9. The question of whether people die with or indeed from coronaviruses. Autopsies show that in many cases the previous illnesses were an important or decisive factor, but the official figures usually do not reflect the same.
  10. Thus in order to measure the danger of the disease, the key fact is not the often mentioned number of positive tests persons and deceased, but the number of persons who actually and unexpectedly develop or die of pneumonia.
  11. As shows sometimes the exponential curves of “corona cases” are misleading, since the number of tests also increases exponentially. In most countries, the ratio of positive tests to total tests either remains constant between 5% to 25% or increases rather slowly.
  12. Countries without lockdowns like Japan, South Korea and Sweden, have not experienced a more negative course of events compare to others.
  13. As per the leading lung specialists, invasive ventilation of coronavirus patients is often counterproductive and causes additional damage to the lungs. The invasive ventilation of Covid19 patients is partly done out of fear of spreading the virus through aerosols.
  14. The WHO determined at the end of March that there is no evidence of aerosol dispersal of the virus. A leading German virologist also found no aerosol and no smear infections in a pilot study.
  15. Lot of clinics in Europe and the US have been lacking patients and some have had to introduce short-time work. Numerous operations and therapies were cancelled by clinics, even emergency patients sometimes stay at home out of fear for the deadly virus.
  16. The media houses not all the time showing the correct situation, sometimes even misguiding with manipulative pictures and videos. In general, many media houses even provide doubtful official statements and figures.
  17. The virus test kits used internationally are prone to errors. Several studies have shown that even normal corona viruses can give a false positive result. Moreover, the virus test currently in use has not been clinically validated due to time pressure.
  18. Numerous internationally renowned experts from the fields of virology, immunology and epidemiology consider the measures taken to be counterproductive and recommend a rapid natural immunisation of the general population while protecting risk groups.
  19. The number of people suffering from psychological, unemployment problems and domestic violence as a result of the measures taken has exploded in the US and worldwide. Several experts believe that the measures may claim >more lives than the virus itself.
  20. NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden warned that the corona crisis is used for the massive and permanent expansion of global surveillance. The renowned virologist Pablo Goldschmidt spoke of a “global media terror” and “totalitarian measures”. Leading British virologist Professor John Oxford spoke of a “media epidemic”.
