My perspective of “the pandemic” is gradually coming round to the near certainty that the whole thing is a scam to justify a massive power grab by the political and financial elites, the vast majority of whom have for a century now been besotted with the idea that an authoritarian, oligarchic world government.
None of us really knows what is going on and it has always been my nature to be sceptical of “expert” opinion (a position invariably justified in instances where I can find out who is paying the “expert,”) and mistrustful of authority (as Bernard Levin, a great journalist of the late 20th century in the UK — and Arianna Huffington’s first husband, said: “The least amount of power always leads to the greatrest desire to abuse it.”) Therefore I have been asking the difficult questions and finding no satisfactory answers.
One question that has been asked by almost every commentator in Europe recently is why is Germany’s death rate from coronavirus so much lower than that of other European nations?

Now a German doctor has given us a very feasible answer is an open letter written to Hausfrau — Volksfuhrer Merkel, widely published on the web and discussed in a YouTube video. In the letter, which can be read HERE, Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, Professor Emeritus of Medical Microbiology at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, explaines to jiggery pokery driving the fear and panic pandemic in the section headed 1. Statistics:

In infectiology — founded by Robert Koch himself — a traditional distinction is made between infection and disease. An illness requires a clinical manifestation. [1] Therefore, only patients with symptoms such as fever or cough should be included in the statistics as new cases.

In other words, a new infection — as measured by the COVID-19 test — does not necessarily mean that we are dealing with a newly ill patient who needs a hospital bed. However, it is currently assumed that five percent of all infected people become seriously ill and require ventilation. Projections based on this estimate suggest that the healthcare system could be overburdened.

My question: Did the projections make a distinction between symptom-free infected people and actual, sick patients — i.e. people who develop symptoms?

Dr. Bhakdi warning of statitical prestadigitation at work in this narrative was borne out earlier this week when Eddie Large, a British comedian, real name Ediie McGinnis, who was very popular in the 1980s (although I would not expect many people outside the UK to have heard of him,) died, according to the words of the BBC news report, “in hospital with coronavirus.”
Notice how the weasel words gove the impression Mr. Large was in hospital “with” coronavirus. Fortunately, or perhaps unfortunatelt for those who have been using coronavirus to spread fear and panic as a way of advancing political or ideological agendas, The McGinnis family put the record straight. Eddie’s health had been failing for a long time due to heart failure, he contracted the COVID — 19 infection while in hospital and the family were disgusted that he died alone and in quarantine and they were not allowed to see him during his final hours.
My point here is that we should all be careful and act reponsibly, if you or people around you are vulnerable, i.e. someone with a compromised immune system, or who has long term health problems, follow the government advice but most of us have little to fear from this infection so our task in to not live in terror but heed the words of Greek author Euripades, over 2000 years ago, particularly the first two parts: “Question everything, learn something, tell nothing.”
