Do we have confirmed data of an isolated coronavirus sample that can be made for public review yet?
Or confirmed data of asymptomatic spread?
@original_fractalator We had samples of coronavirus in another department at my laboratory to analyse their structure in the spring. Also, they did testing of some of the non-symptomatic staff and got 2 positive tests.
Do you have data you can share with the rest of us?
This reporter in ireland claims that the HSE is not providing such data under thier freedom of information act. (At 300,000 views)
The American Institution Economic Research has stated a case study involving over 10,000,000 people in China, not one reported asyptomatic case has been found.
@original_fractalator Honestly BitChute is great technology but it's full of cranks so best not to watch politics on there.
AIER has their agenda too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Institute_for_Economic_Research
Including research on "the comparative benefits that sweatshops supplying multinationals bring to the people working in them" (!!)
Ya these organizations have thier darkside for sure, and im not defending thier reputation by any means, but the individuals within the sources provided, and the data that they have shared (thier personal opinions aside) maybe worthy of questioning
@original_fractalator The AIER article seems to be trying to argue "because there's no asymptomatic spread, lockdowns don't work". But lockdowns *do* work, at least to temporarily reduce cases. The UK had one in November and you can see the notch below on the case count (src: Bloomberg)
Also note China is incomparable to other countries: it may have been lucky enough to suppress the virus completely!
yes, no contact = no spread, logically
But shutting down the economy can cause all kinds of other health problems in the long run
Such has poverty, lack of energy and food insecurity
Isolation causes all kinds of mental and emotion issues leading to physical issues.
And this is all being done over the slim chance a virus can spread asymptomatically.
It doesnt seem worth it, yknow? It should be a personal choice to isolate yourself from the virus.
@original_fractalator I think that's why "full lockdowns" are only triggered when hospitals get near capacity. There also seems to be a seasonal angle to this, meaning it'll be worse in winter.
It would be interesting to see what relaxing restrictions during a summer would do, but now there's the vaccine in play as well, so we might not get to do that "experiment".
