I saw this doom and gloom headline on Saturday: Hospitals in Idaho, Pennsylvania, Texas overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients.
But it’s not based in contextual information or facts.
From the article:
In Idaho, National Guard troops were called in to help triage patients outside an urgent-care facility turned COVIID-19 clinic, while the staff inside work 12-hour shifts.
Those in the National Guard were not ordered to do so. Those in charged asked for volunteers. So the need was not dire. 12 Hour shifts is normal for such incidents. ALL hospitals have Continue reading “We are being manipulated, and are being told lies and exaggerations”
Our school district, West Ada School District, is without course and rudderless, too top-heavy, and is far less focused on actual education, and more focused on “safety” and protecting itself from litigation. And passing the buck to a tyrannical health district.
They have placed way too many draconian restrictions on students, parents, teachers, schools, etc, that educating will come with obstructions and hurdles that will likely prove to be completely unnecessary, but will hinder education progress and the mental health of many.
They have no clear plan as to when in-person classes would begin, what the standards of “safety” will be, what precise metric will cause a school Continue reading “Starting The Path of School Freedom”
Please be kind enough to read, detached from emotion and biasses. I do care what is happening in the world, our country, my state, and my community. Who am I to talk about such things? I’m no one. But I can read data. And so can you. I am by no means an expert, but I can rely on experts as I research. I’ve relied on experts from Oxford. And ANYONE can look at the metrics. I recommend this data source, since it is free from emoting commentary.
I cite references below. A scholarly article/review which cites several RCT studies, and a recent video of Oxford epidemiologists, and a few quotes. My motivation is not to personally attack ANYONE. My motivation was prompted by the repeated claims that mask mandates “are based on the science.” My motivation is to present an important perspective that I feel is largely un heard and misrepresented.
I’m not anti mask, I’m anti-bad-science. I want my state, and the country to re-open. Although I cannot wear face masks due to non-SARS-CoV-2 health issues, if the science supported it, I would Continue reading “COVID-19: Bad Science, Bad Metrics, Lies, And Manipulations”
I am truly sorry if these data points offend you. I’m just growing tired of local and national news agencies focusing on case numbers, or the death toll of a specific day. These data points I present do not mean I don’t care about those that have tragically died as the result of SARS-CoV-2, I just want to look at contextual and relevant data points objectively. That’s all.
Case numbers alone cannot determine the strength or lethality of the virus. Death toll numbers alone cannot help determine the strength or lethality of the virus. The number of occupied beds speaks only about specific hospitals, and do not speak of the strength or lethality of the virus. Hospitalization rates and CFR is how strength and lethality are tracked. Based on the metrics and determinations of the CDC, the virus is Continue reading “COVID-19 Metrics Show The virus Is Weakening”
