CDC estimates that, in the 15 months from February 2020 to May 2021, there were 120.2 million cases of covid in America; in other words, one in three Americans fell victim to “the pandemic.”18
Traditionally, “pandemic” has been used to describe a widespread disease resulting in a high degree of fatalities: “Pandemic [is] an epidemic (a sudden outbreak) that becomes very widespread and affects a whole region, a continent, or the world due to a susceptible population; by definition, a true pandemic causes a high degree of mortality (death).19
CDC admits that only 6% of people who purportedly died of covid had only covid: the remaining 94% were already in very poor health, prey to an average of three other serious diseases, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer.20
Because of the lockdown, cancer patients were not permitted to have scheduled surgeries or even routine medical care. 21 22 23 Moreover, covid-hysteria promulgated by mainstream media contributed to cancer fatalities, as cancer-patients reported that they felt safer staying home than going to the doctor.24
As a result of the lockdown and the media-generated hysteria, there was a 46% decline in diagnoses of six common cancers (breast, colorectal, lung, pancreas, stomach, and esophagus) during March 1 to April 18, 2020, compared with January 6, 2019, to February 29, 2020, ranging from a 25% drop for pancreatic cancer to 52% for breast cancer. 25 26
This will affect cancer deaths for years to come:
Tracking the eventual rebound in the coming months will be important for predicting how many patients continue to delay screening because of concerns related to the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a tremendous immediate impact on the world, and it is clear that there will be effects for years to come. Of note, the data presented here reveal quantifiable trends that indicate substantial declines in cancer-related patient encounters. Ultimately, these observed trends have serious implications for future cancer care and validate the need to study and monitor the effect of COVID-19 mitigation on cancer diagnosis and treatment moving forward. 27
Those undiagnosed and untreated cancers continued metasthetizing throughout the lockdown, driving up the putative “covid” death rate.
And, let’s not forget that the federal government paid hospitals a multi-thousand dollar bounty for every “covid death” that they were able to rack up: $13,000 per person admitted as “a covid case,” and another $39,000 for every patient put on a ventilator. 28 Mighty fine payola for the hospitals — and too bad for the ventilated patients. The great majority of patients put on ventilators die 29 because it is the wrong sort of medical intervention: they died because of the ventilators, not in spite of being ventilated. 30
George Washington contracted pneumonia and was killed by his doctors: he was bled dry. For centuries, in the era before antibiotics, aggressive bloodletting was considered the therapy of last resort in medical crises. In modern-day medical crises, covid patients are intubated and their lungs are exploded by aggressive ventilation: the vast majority of covid patients who are put on ventilators die. Did the $39,000 bounty the federal government paid to hospitals for every ventilator case have anything to do with that?
New York City emergency-medicine physician Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell warns: “I fear that this misguided treatment [putting covid patients on ventilators] will lead to a tremendous amount of harm to a great number of people in a very short time.” 31 Dr. Kyle-Sidell warned that ventilators are actually killing people. 32
Thus we see, when we consider that, by definition, a true pandemic causes a high degree of mortality (death), 33 the scourge that has been destroying the America that we lived in before 2020, is not a “pandemic” but something altogether different.
Some people call it a “scamdemic.”
