Coronavirus: We Should Have Learned by Now

And late-breaking coronavirus news (as of March 31st)

latest news about coronavirusBoth NY and CA report that the number of new cases of coronavirus is dropping. But even more is dropping—a March 30th paper published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases estimates a 0.66% death rate [WHO said it would be 3.4% and that set off the panic]. (1) For those under 40, the death rate is estimated to be 0.16% (regular flu is 0.1%). Kids under 9 have the lowest death rate at 0.00161%. For those over 80: 7.8%.

The dust hasn’t settled yet. My prediction is that they have preferentially tested sick people, who likely would have died from their existing health conditions. Since it’s always in the population, people die with coronavirus rather than from coronavirus. But it’s reported that the virus killed them. Until we look at background death rates, we have no way of knowing if there’s an increased mortality or not.

Peter Gøtzsche, MD, founder of Cochrane Collaboration, with 75 papers published In top bio-medical journals, writes in the British Medical Journal, March 8th, 2020:

Case-fatality rates for respiratory virus infections are highly uncertain. Many mild infections pass unnoticed, and if an elderly frail patient with serious heart disease is pushed over the edge by an infection, was it then a virus death or a cardiac death?

I have suspected for a long time that we are the victims of mass panic. Two days ago, I read in a newspaper that the average age of those who died after coronavirus infection was 81 and that they also often had comorbidity.

What if the Chinese had not tested their patients for coronavirus or there had not been any test? Would we have carried on with our lives, without restrictions, not worrying about some deaths here and there among old people, which we see every winter? I think so. (2)

We should have learned our lesson in 1976

It began with one lone soldier. It was very cold the night of February 4th, 1976 at Fort Dix in New Jersey. A recruit, sick with a fever, insisted on going on a 50-mile forced march with full pack in the snow. Not a good idea. We’ll never know what he was thinking because in the middle of the march he collapsed and later died of pneumonia.

A week later, F. David Matthews, US Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, said the soldier died of swine flu and it’ll spread: “We will see a return of the 1918 flu virus that is the most virulent form of the flu. In 1918 a half million Americans died. The projections are that this virus will kill one million Americans in 1976.” (3)

Begin the hysteria

President Ford receiving a swine flu vaccine

A half million deaths? The media claimed that we needed a vaccine now! President Ford was publicly vaccinated in the White House to show everyone how important it was.

On March 24, the day after he lost the North Carolina primary to Ronald Reagan, President Gerald Ford welcomed the top virologists in the nation to a meeting in the White House and asked them if the nation was facing a swine flu epidemic. Would mass vaccinations be necessary? The doctors all said yes. (4)

Big shot doctors

Which doctors said yes? Big shots! A “blue-ribbon” committee of experts including Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin. Some scientists said the swine flu had a 60-year mutation cycle and the soldier’s death was the start of a new, incredibly lethal type of flu. (5)

Merck and other drug companies hesitated to go ahead with the vaccine unless the US government would accept liability. Millions of Americans were vaccinated before the number of deaths and injuries brought the vaccination program to a halt. One more thing: there was no swine flu epidemic. What about all those experts?

Well, maybe not ALL the experts

J. Anthony Morris, PhD, a flu expert and researcher at the FDA’s Bureau of Biologics, refused to join the herd. He thought the flu vaccine was dangerous and ineffective. So he went out publicly with those remarks saying the vaccine was not safe or even necessary. “He was fired on trumped-up charges as a result of his position on the flu vaccine. (One of the charges was that he was late returning his library books!) That served as a warning to all government scientists and employees not to put science ahead of politics,” according to his attorney Jim Turner. (6)

The real victims

When the dust settled, not a single person died from the swine flu “pandemic,” but 25 died from the swine flu vaccine. Over 500 were paralyzed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) also known as ‘French Polio’. At least 3,905 claims were filed alleging other vaccine-induced injuries. Instead of being lauded for his scientific acumen, Dr. Morris had to take legal action to get his job back.

The vaccine makers were smart by refusing to manufacture the vaccine. The US government had to shell out about $4 billion to people who were injured.

Ford got busted

Gerald Ford’s attempt to gain credit for keeping America safe was busted. He lost the presidential election to Jimmy Carter that November. The 1976 to 1977 flu season was the most flu-free since records had been kept; a condition that was apparently unrelated to the vaccination program. The Great Swine Flu Epidemic of 1976 never took place. (7)

Did anyone lose their job at the CDC or HEW for being so royally wrong and for creating a panic that led to paralyses, deaths and $billions in liability? No one! Well, Ford lost the election to Jimmy Carter—so some may argue that the entire country lost in the end.

Swine flu (2009)

In 2009 we were told there would be a swine flu pandemic—the big one is coming! Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano suggested a mass immunization program for the then-current outbreak of swine flu. Didn’t she learn anything from history? Despite her suggestion, no vaccine was produced.

How did the 2009 swine flu epidemic turn out? It didn’t.

Coronavirus: going, going, gone

coronavirus cases droppingChinese, Italian and Korean statistics show the coronavirus cases are dropping. We can learn lessons from the Swine Flu of 1976 (and 2009). Other predicted “pandemics”: HIV, H1N1, SARS, MERS, Bird Flu, Legionnaires’ disease, Anthrax, Smallpox, Ebola virus, Zika virus and more!

What the hell, let’s add Y2K. It wasn’t a germ but it was predicted civilization would come to near-collapse. People did get nervous.

Chiropractic care and the immune system

In a previous blog, I had mentioned that chiropractic improves the immune system. And that chiropractic care saved countless lives in the 1918 flu pandemic. (8) Isn’t it logical that chiropractic care would be of benefit in this present coronavirus hysteria?

Believe it or not, some chiropractic organizations have threatened DCs for daring to claim that chiropractic helps the immune system. Matt McCoy, DC, MPH has collected great material on this subject. Share it with your patients (and chiropractic boards and colleges):

About coronavirus: in conclusion

As reported earlier, we really don’t know what’s going on until the dust settles and the researchers, statisticians, infectious disease experts and others count the numbers and compare everything to seasonal flu. Is there excess mortality?

As I reported in my recent posts Corona Virus: Going, Going, Gone! and Corona Fiasco: Can We All Go Out and Play Now? as well as in this one many experts are rolling their eyes at the hysterical response that has gripped the media, politicians and the general public.

coronavirusBacteria and viri only exist in a toxic body and serve a purpose—to feed on and to eliminate toxins. In order to protect oneself from the flu and any disease, keep your body free of subluxations in order to promote improved body function, improved detoxification and elimination of wastes.

Natural healers all over the world for thousands of years have promoted this safe, natural and gentle approach. Why? Because it works.

    If our government officials were serious about fighting the corona pandemic, they would mandate that everyone get adjusted once per week, do aerobic exercise 30 minutes per day, and close all the drug stores so people would stop taking toxic medicine until this crisis is over.

    By the way, the Ohio Board of Chiropractic advised us not to tell patients that Chiropractic can prevent coronavirus infection.

    I thought of responding to them but in a way they’re right. Since it’s so new, research on coronavirus and chiropractic hasn’t been done yet. Plus Reggie Gold taught me that chiropractic doesn’t prevent any disease, it only decreases your chances of getting it. Also, the board didn’t specify that I couldn’t teach patients about chiropractic and immunity in general.

    Thanks for untwisting what the news media and quite a bit of the politicians in our country have created here. It makes no sense at all. This panic and exaggeration of the situation that 80% of people are buying into sadly reinforces to me how ignorant and non questioning most are.

    Dear Dr Koren, I am not sure to express my comment properly. I’d wish they would try to stop you telling you that they are being disturbed by your truthful words about this stupid hysteria. If they would bring you to court, they would have to listen to all of your research and good reasoning Thank you so much for your loyalty to the truth. I have known you to be courageous in front of those big lies, like vaccination, publications that explains about health issues and so on. You are a mentor to imitate, most of us dont have the courage to do what you do, keep up your work and I hope to see you in your seminar soon.

    God created a wonderful system when our bodies were formed. Man came along and destroyed HIS design…in the form of toxic, synthetic drugs. Sadly, billions are brainwashed that without a cocktail of drug therapy, we will all die..well, many do…it’s just a slower demise. Thanks for your stance on health and chiropractic healing. It works, I know..because I get my adjustment every month…and have been doing so since 1999. I pray this insanity ends soon with this proverbial virus frenzy…it has to.

    Excellent contribution. When people start to ask better questions about the two statistics that are constantly driving this delusional frenzy i.e. new cases and death rates, they will realise how much misdirection and downright fabrication has been perpetrated on the global public. For example. Let’s start with new cases:
    Question: What exactly are they testing for? Answer: We know it’s not the virus as the test cannot test for the virus. It is a flawed and unproven theoretical hypothesis (According the Nobel Prize winner who created it).

    Question: How did they isolate the virus when they first took samples from the sick people and Wuhan?
    Answer: They didn’t. They drew an erroneous conclusions that was not based in any kind of gold standard science.

    Question: What’s the current false positive test rate according to PubMed?
    Answer: Up to 80%.

    Question: As the substance that has been theoretically linked to a positive test has not been looked for before, is it any wonder that it is showing up now they’re pointing a flashlight into the general population and claiming it to be new cases that have been spread by recent contagion?
    Answer: It’s not only possible – it’s predictable.

    Okay, let’s move to death rates.
    Question: How are the death rates being calculated?
    Answer: By including everyone who was already sick with comorbid conditions. While simultaneously ignoring everybody who had symptoms that were too low to notice and therefore were not tested (which was the vast majority of people). That’s like doing a mortality rate on elderly care homes instead of schools and then imposing it as the norm for the whole population.

    Question: How many people in Italy who died had comorbid conditions? Answer (from the Italian government) 99%. With almost half having 3!

    Question: How many people would have died without the virus from their existing conditions?
    Answer: Impossible to tell because those figures are not being questioned. But not are they being factored in. (Safe to assume a lot more than 0%.)

    Question: How many people have died exclusively of the virus?
    Answer: Impossible to tell but indications show that it is in the thousands of a percentage.

    Question: How does that stack up against normal flu?
    Answer:

    Question: how are they recording the death statistics again? They are taking everybody who does that tested positive (remember 80% false anyway) and even if they had several comorbid conditions and were about to expire, they are recording it as a ‘Corona Death’ statistic for the purposes of perpetuating the fear and the charade. Absolute irresponsibility.

    Next, point: Is it possible that mass fear sustained over the past several weeks has contributed to deaths based upon a weakened immune system?
    Answer: Categorically yes. Stress hormones immediately compromise and shutdown the immune system. This is why if you have an organ transplant the first thing they give you are stress hormones to shut down your immune system and prevent it from rejecting the new organ.

    Therefore is it possible that more illnesses such as normal flu or any of the other 500 coronaviruses (that we live with consistently and all of which have the similar symptoms to covid19) been seen in the population as a direct result of peoples own immune system shutting down from fear due to media misrepresentation of the above? And allowing the millions of viruses, bacteria, and pathogens that live inside our bodies all day every day to take hold. (This is why science calls them ‘opportunistic organisms’ as they wait for the ‘opportunity’ of a low immune system to flourish.)
    Answer: Of course, it’s basic biology.

    Finally (I could go on but at least this is giving you the direction with which to ask better questions for yourself), is there also a powerful nocebo affect In operation for anyone who’s been told they tested positive (even if they had no symptoms to start with)
    Answer: unequivocally. This is why drugs to have had $100 million invested in them, often are not able to compete with a placebo and therefore not given a license. The patient’s own thoughts about the benefits outperform the pharmacology. In reverse this has been proven to be just as true. Which is why many doctors are no longer allowed to give timelines on terminal patients as too many of them were dying exactly on point. Including several examples of people who were told they had cancer and only months to live and died on schedule. However, following an autopsy, it was revealed they had absolutely no cancer but instead had been given the diagnosis from a mixup in a different patients x-ray. (For full details of many cases like this read Dr Joe Dispenza’s book, you are the placebo)

    I’m in total agreement with the author here, when the dust settles on this thing it will be looked back on and dissected with a level heads as the biggest scam perpetrated on the global population.

    Another bit of very levelheaded science can be seen here: https://youtu.be/Xr8Dy5mnYx8

    The peak deaths in Italy in recent years from influenza may have been used to give the impression of a ‘pandemic’. 2019 article from International Journal of Infectious Diseases. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1201971219303285
