In 2006 The ‘Science’ Of Pandemic Mitigation Was Nearly The Opposite Of What It Is In 2020

A 2006 peer-reviewed scientific paper (Inglesby et al., 2006) on pandemic mitigation policy said the efficacy of 3-feet social distancing is unknown, surgical masks do little to prevent virus droplet inhalation, and closing schools, restaurants, stores…have seriously adverse community consequences.

The paper refers to what policymakers should recommend if there is an influenza pandemic.

Keep in mind that the flu kills about 500,000 people a year worldwide and there have been some years when it has reached pandemic proportions, killing over a million people (i.e., 1957-’58, 1968-’69).

In 1918 the flu pandemic killed 50 million out of 500 million infections worldwide. At the time, that was one-third of the world’s population.

And yet at no time have we ever responded to a pandemic the way we have with COVID-19.

    Very interesting, but . . .

    I question making comparisons far in the past to now.
    For example, the 1918 flu was during WWI that included close contact of soldiers, and many people tired, hungry, and cold. There was a news blackout – but not in Spain. It did not start there, while the news of it was not limited. Thus the name Spanish Flu.
    Also, when schools closed for winter holiday in Chicago more childhood cases happened. But were the children quarantined in their homes? During my childhood, when school ended we played hard, such as building snow-forts, and riding 2 or 3 to a sled down a hill. I could go on, but don’t see the need. You know those times just as well as I do.

    I do agree that the current situation – Panic2020 – is chaotic and officials have made dangerous decisions. Bill Gates warned world leaders of just this sort of thing. They looked elsewhere to focus their time and money.

    Thanks.

    More or less what is stated in the 2019 WHO’s survey on this subject :

    The worst is that all the fearmongers and politicians who caused such desaster where (and are still) talking about applying “science” … I wonder where they read all the BS they applied.

    Stalinian Lysenkoism’s flavor of the month !

    Lots of people are analysing the numbers detailing the progression of the disease over time.

    With different measures being taking in different countries or states this should show if the measures were effective or not.

    This should provide ample proof and insight on which to base rational actions.

    Which will all be happily ignored by the governments of the world…

    The decrepit state of health-care across the Transatlantic is the reason for the panic. 40 years of health-care take-down (since Nixon dumped Bretton-Woods) and political fear of admitting the looting policy that followed has left us prostrate in the face of a Sylvatic.

    It is clear what to do . Build a World Health system, and there are plenty if idle hands ready to do it. Pay them well, work with China, India and Russia.

    Causality ? Destroy physical economic progress in energy flux-density per capita and the Biosphere will react with Sylvatics. Its time-worn method ? Virae. So it is clear what to do : Progress or Perish.

    The Green policies now frothing at candidates masked mouths will kill many more than the Syvatic, for the same reason.
