The non-binary carbon-based life form who cried ‘Omicron’ has a problem. It’s turning out to be a high-profile dud and in more ways than one.
In South Africa, the undisputed cradle of life for the Omicron variant, they are so underwhelmed that they are done with it. It’s over.
Omicron: such a joke that South Africa is about to dump all contact tracing and quarantines. Yes, the scientists advising the government of South Africa – where Omicron is now the dominant strain – say tracing and quarantining the contacts of infected people is a waste of time.
Meanwhile, “a few miles: to the north, in the pansy-assed lands of Europe, the Danes are not even trying to hide how ridiculous the narrative has become. No, that wasn’t the goal, but they are “publishing extremely detailed daily data about Covid cases and hospitalizations – not just about Omicron, but all Covid variants.”
Most new Covid cases in Denmark occur in people who are vaccinated or boosted – and that is true for both Omicron and earlier variants. More than 76 percent of non-Omicron Covid infections in Denmark are in vaccinated people, along with about 90 percent of Omicron infections.
I find it difficult to believe that yet another report of how useless the narrative and the vaccines are overseas would not also apply here in the US. But our chicken littles are still running around, telling us the sky is falling. Is it?
Not only is it not, nor was it ever, I was recently privy to some inside information about positive case reporting. There is no process for filtering out duplicate positive tests for the same patient.
If someone tests positive is moved or retested and tests positive again (well, of course, they would), that counts as two cases. They are also testing everyone who comes anywhere near a health care facility for any procedure. This carpet bombing will increase “positive cases” from asymptomatic folks (who are no threat) and increase false positives exponentially.
Both the rapid and PCR tests are still crap, but even if they worked, we’d still have elevated results that mean nothing in the scope of actual public health.
In other words, the process that was crap is now crap times one-hundred or more.
That magic daily positive case number probably includes a significant number of duplicates and errors, and there is no incentive to get clean data—quite the opposite. The Feds have poured trillions into rewarding this behavior.
(1) The CARES Act, …provides hospitals with bonus incentive payments for all things related to COVID-19 (testing, diagnosing, admitting to hospital, use of remdesivir and ventilators, reporting COVID-19 deaths, and vaccinations).
They are not testing everyone to protect the staff, they are testing to cash in, and the same is true for vaccinations, and I’d guess boosters as well.
But her comes Denmark, to expose the harsh reality.
When your health care “professionals” or the politicians beholden to the Health Care Triad of Hospitals, Big Pharma, and the Insurance Companies, say get tested, get the shot, get the booster, they are actually promoting a revenue stream paid for by you through cash incentives offered by the government that awards them trillion at your expense.
A money-laundering scheme that involves a test that doesn’t work very well on a virus that is only dangerous to about 1% of the population, so you’ll get a vaccine that not only doesn’t protect you from the pathogen it may increase the odds of Hospitals caching in when it makes you sicker than if you’d skipped it.
And their response to these facts is to suppress them and attack the messenger, and by them, I mean hospitals, bureaucrats, politicians, and our COVID Cult neighbors.
COVID is real, and some folks will get very sick from it (some will die), but we used to just call it the flu. Now that it is political, we have a bigger problem that will outlast COVID by decades if we do not find a cure for that and soon.
