While politicians are implementing additional lockdowns as the second wave of the coronavirus hits, a study out of Wayne University in Detroit suggests that COVID may be weakening. This seems to be supported by the fact that the number of people dying from the virus is in an absolute free fall, despite the rising number of cases.
Study Finds reports:
DETROIT, Mich. — While some health experts warn of a possible second wave in the coronavirus pandemic, a new study is pointing to signs that COVID-19’s severity may be fading. Researchers at Wayne State University say viral loads from patients are continuing to decrease as the pandemic progresses. This is also showing a connection to a lowering death rate.
Dr. Said El Zein and his team analyzed viral loads of SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19, coming from patient nasal swabs over two months. From April 4 to June 5, a downward trend in the amount of virus detected in patients at Detroit Medical Center was discovered.
If you want to see how dramatic the change in death rate has been, check out these two charts from the UK.
The first chart shows the number of people who have been infected by the Coronavirus since the infection began in March. You can see a spike in new cases in September (the second wave).
Now compare the number of new cases, with the number of COVID deaths during these same two periods. The deaths have fallen dramatically during the second wave:
Meanwhile, researchers with the UK government’s advisory council are calling for an end to lockdowns in that country, warning that more people will be killed by the lockdown than the Coronavirus. READ: Lockdown ‘could kill 75,000 over five years’ – that’s the OFFICIAL projection of non-COVID deaths caused by missed cancer diagnoses, cancelled operations and health impacts of a recession. The virus death toll? 42,000
And, this is not the first time that medical researchers have noticed the coronavirus is weakening.
So, why are politicians talking about second lockdowns? Who is spreading the fear? Why are they so determined to destroy their economies?
