The more cases the more justification for taking away your freedoms.

The rate of flu is down allegedly from many people wearing masks but yet the rate of covid is up when those same masks are alleged to protect people from that very covid virus.Strange.

The rate of flu isn’t allegedly down. The rate of flu comes from testing, and the test results for flu are way down. Period.

Is it possible that someone with flu tests negative for flu and positive for COVID. Yes. But that’s not going to drive flu rates down. It doesn’t work that way.

Flu tests are no different than they have been in recent years. They’re notorious at producing a lot of false negatives. Be that as it may, the amount of testing being done is up, and the number of people testing positive is down. And this guy is an asshole.

So this article is lying?

So the 165 deaths the past day, the hospitals filling up, all the people on vents. None of that is real, right?

Um, yes.

The Rockefeller University releases statement concerning Knut Wittkowski

"The opinions that have been expressed by Knut Wittkowski, discouraging social distancing in order to hasten the development of herd immunity to the novel coronavirus, do not represent the views of The Rockefeller University, its leadership, or its faculty.

Wittkowski was previously employed by Rockefeller as a biostatistician. He has never held the title of professor at Rockefeller."

Biostatistician is a mathematician, not a physician.

Biostatistician is a mathematician, not a physician. 

So, my family doctor is more knowledgeable than a biostatistician on the the extent and seriousness of a disease threat to a population?

 

Interesting how the supporters of the all-knowing fascist political doctors in the CDC do not deal with the details or specifics of what their critics are bringing forth. Rather they personally attack and try to destroy them. Typical tactic of the statist left.

Dunno.  Is your family doctor a quack like this guy?

There are different test for flu and Covid. Covid is much more contagious than the flu so a mask and social distancing that provides marginal protection against Covid would be more effective against the flu.

This is 100$ false and Just The News has an appalling fact check rating.

I don't think you even read the article.  It's not saying what you think it is.

 

All he's saying is that many folks who have the flu and perhaps not COVID, when tested for COVID (due to flu like symptoms) *might* test positive for COVID due to having COVID rna in their noses.    Key point is he is making a conjecture that this is true (he doesn't state any studies or provide backing info), secondly he is NOT saying COVID is the flu or vice versa.

 

 

Where have all the flu cases gone?

Epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski thinks he can answer the riddle.

"Influenza has been renamed COVID in large part," said the former head of biostatistics, epidemiology and research design at Rockefeller University.

"There may be quite a number of influenza cases included in the 'presumed COVID' category of people who have COVID symptoms (which Influenza symptoms can be mistaken for), but are not tested for SARS RNA," Wittkowski told Just the News on Thursday. 

Those patients, he argued, "also may have some SARS RNA sitting in their nose while being infected with Influenza, in which case the influenza would be 'confirmed' to be COVID."
