After about a 2 1/2 month hiatus, Mr. E.H. Hail is back up and at 'em with his "Hail to You" blog. "'em" is the Kung Flu LOCKDOWN panickers. There are 3 more "Corona Panic" posts up on the site: Part XVI discusses the newest studies on the millions of people now having the antibodies for the Covid-19 virus, sick or not, discusses the herd immunity threshold, and, lastly, estimates the ratio of deaths actually FROM the disease vs. total deaths chalked up to it. Per Mr. Hail on the latter: "between 50% and 85% of the media’s corona-deaths were 'deaths with the virus present, but from some other cause.”"
In Part XVII Mr. Hail presents a 45 minute video of one Mr. Tom Woods called "Fact-Free COVID Dystopia". I still have not watched it but am looking forward to it, perhaps tomorrow morning. I'll embed it here as soon as I do.
Part XVIII of "Against the Corona Panic" has lots of data from the country of Belarus. Mr. Hail's post covers the 40 year span of total death rates in that country (COVID-related ones being hard to find due to the country hiding data, I suppose in order not to be shunned even further by the "international community" for not giving enough of a shit about this virus), which ends up making it a "bad flu wave" years, with an estimated 0.04% deaths due to it. Then, Mr. Hail compares Belarus to Sweden. Lastly, and very importantly, he notes that the big increase in the death rate of the country due to great economic/social disruption after the break-up of the USSR is near 100 X worse than the bad flu wave of Corona.
LOCKDOWNS are pretty much economic and social disruptions. Will we see the same bad effect, 2 orders-of-magnitude greater than the disease itself?
Mr. Hail has got lots of numbers and explains his methodology thoroughly. Please go check out his 3 new posts if you haven't already.
