The Myth of Asymptomatic Spread

Here’s “The Science”:

“The screening of the 9,865,404 participants without a history of COVID-19 found no newly confirmed COVID-19 cases, and identified 300 asymptomatic positive cases with a detection rate of 0.303 (95% CI 0.270–0.339)/10,000. The median age-stratified Ct-values of the asymptomatic cases were shown in Supplementary Table 1. Of the 300 asymptomatic positive cases, two cases came from one family and another two were from another family. There were no previously confirmed COVID-19 patients in these two families. A total of 1174 close contacts of the asymptomatic positive cases were traced, and they all tested negative for the COVID-19. There were 34,424 previously recovered COVID-19 cases who participated in the screening. Of the 34,424 participants with a history of COVID-19, 107 tested positive again, giving a repositive rate of 0.310% (95% CI 0.423–0.574%).” Cao et al., 2020

On June 7, Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, head of the WHO’s emerging diseases and zoonosis unit, told a press conference that from the known research, asymptomatic spread was “very rare.” “From the data we have, it still seems to be rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a secondary individual.” She added for emphasis: “It’s very rare.”

So, given “The Science!”, remind me again why we have these lockdowns.

  1. Most people are too stupid to even read 10% of a real science paper (they wouldn’t even start to ready the study itself).

    And when they see the real science in front of them they run away, put their face diaper on and queue for untested, unsafe mRNA injection before shouting ‘conspiracy theory’ at you…

    You can fill a cup that’s already full, I have tried for a year now, it doesn’t work.

    Let these morons get poisoned by gene therapy, if they don’t die immediatly they’ll get sick for life and even more moronic, obedient, ignorant, coward, robotic and zombified.

    It comes to the point where I would agree with the devil himself, bill gates and depopulate the planet of these masked, microchipped morons!

    1. Thanks for the comment.

      I get your point that a lot of people have not tried to read scientific papers and work through the uncertainties – as I suspect you might agree, there is no settled science.

      For some, mRNA vaccines might seem a lesser risk than, say, rolling the dice on a chimeric virus run amok. If you’re older, with a compromised immune system, and maybe dealing with more than a few comorbidities, I can see an argument for the vaccine.

      But for others – younger, healthy, and isolated from those who might be at risk, it’s not obvious to me an mRNA vaccine rushed into production at “warp speed” doesn’t pose some unintended risk that may not be easily quantified.

      The statistics to date – limited as they are – do not show evidence of inordinate risk in the vaccine. Of course, longer term remains to be seen.

      Appreciate the post.

      And, yes, Bill Gates is not my idea of a reliable witness in this area. He should stick to selling poorly designed software.
