    We Have Immune Systems, New York Times Reveals

    File this under "We are fearfully and wonderfully made"

    We panic about "cases" even when they say nothing about severe consequences. Avoidance and finally suppression are the watchwords of the day, for a virus that is relatively mild by any historical standard, as Holman Jenkins just explained:

    U.S. government scientists now estimate that 40% of cases are asymptomatic and 80% of symptomatic cases are mild—in short, 88% of subjects don't know they are infected or have no great incentive to find out if they are suffering from Covid or some more familiar bug.

    We could also mention the 99.9% survival rate, and that doesn't consider the wildly disproportionate risk between the sick and healthy.

    Is this an experiment? Yes, and likely a deadly one.

    What precisely are we doing to ourselves? What are we doing to children?
    and ..

    The sooner we can safely restore the normal experiences of childhood, interacting with other children and — paradoxically — with pathogens and diverse microorganisms, the better we can ensure their ability to thrive as adults in this changing world.

    Really, all this is something my mother knows. She taught it to me. Her mother taught it to her. They were all taught it in school. The knowledge has not been deprecated. It just strangely evaporated. Or perhaps censored. I don't know. I do know this article is a welcome relief from the poppycock of mysophobia that has taken over the public square.

    Imagine wrecking the immune systems of children for a lifetime for a disease that poses almost zero risk to their lives. I call that immoral. Deeply so. People will be suffering for many decades due to this bout of anti-science hysteria.

    It takes one's breath away to contemplate the scale of the destruction these lockdowns and quarantines have caused, particularly among the most vulnerable. It's not just depression, poverty, and demoralization of living in the midst of near-universal violations of human rights. As it turns out, we could be biologically dooming a whole generation too.

    Considering that 260,000 dead out of 13.2 million infected translates to a death rate of roughly 2 percent, the article author might want to check his math a bit.

    (Yes, I know, some 'Covid deaths' were mis-attributed. But no matter what it is, it far exceeds the 0.1 percent rate the author implies.)

    The covid deaths are tallied across the age groups so that alone can be misread. Still, covid deaths are far too hyped. This is totally fear dependent and fear driven.

    I have a hard time with those stats. Too many unanswered questions regarding how testing works.

    For example, I received two tests for Covid (rapid and PCR). Both on the same day/time. Was that counted twice? (Both came back positive)

    If a person has to test negative in order to return to work or some such thing, does every positive test count until they get a negative result?

    I don't really know how they can control the numbers in both scenarios - and it leads me to believe that even in counting the positive results there's bound to be double and triple counting and overlap.

    The corona "death count" will validate the panic narrative regardless of its true impact.

    The point being made in the article is that lockdowns, quarantining healthy people has deleterious effects on the immune system which will eventually play out in the long term. You don't quarantine healthy people, that's just stupid.

    The state Health Dept told us that we may still test positive over the next 90 days.

    One thing remains, don't get tested if you don't have to.

    Shall we mention how many have caught Tuberculosis over the past year or few? Wow, we weren't told to mask up or shut down or stay inside to save lives. Hmmmm.
