Ivermectin cut COVID mortality by 92%, study

Despite the mainline media referring to Ivermectin as a horse dewormer, when people claimed that it was an effective treatment for COVID, a major, peer-reviewed study confirmed the medication significantly reduced COVID deaths. The Daily Skeptic reports: Regular use of ivermectin led to a 100% reduction in hospitalisation rate, a 92% reduction in mortality rate and an 86% reduction in the risk of dying from a COVID-19 infection when compared to non-users, a major new study has found. The study, published in the medical journal Cureus, analysed data from 223,128 people from the city of Itajaí in Brazil and is the largest study of its kind, giving its findings a high degree of certainty. Senior author Dr. Flavio A. Cadegiani wrote on Twitter: “An observational study with the size and level of analysis as ours is hardly achieved and infeasible to be conducted as a randomised clinical trial. Conclusions are hard to be refuted. Data is data, regardless of your beliefs.” READ: Ivermectin Cuts Covid Mortality by 92%, Major Study Finds – Why is it …

The failure of lockdowns

A couple of stories suggest that the lockdowns may have done more damage to people, that the COVID pandemic they didn’t stop. From this study: Are Lockdowns Effective in Managing Pandemics?: The price tag of lockdowns in terms of public health is high: by using the known connection between health and wealth, we estimate that lockdowns may claim 20 times more life years than they save. It is suggested therefore that a thorough cost-benefit analysis should be performed before imposing any lockdown for either COVID-19 or any future pandemic. And from a British newspaper, The Telegraph: August seems a tad early for the NHS winter crisis but, apparently, it’s never too soon to start warning people not to use their health service. To be fair, we only spend £136 billion a year on it and they have got one of the world’s biggest bureaucracies to look after, fleets of luxury cars to subsidise for staff etc, so it would be entirely unreasonable to expect any treatment. You do have to marvel, though, at the brass …

Were US officials concerned about what was going on at the Wuhan Institute of Virology?

Today, most believe that the COVID virus leaked out of the Chinese Communist Party’s level 4 virology lab, Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), in Wuhan, China. nitially, several mainstream media and scientists tried to cover that story up. But bigger concerns have since been raised on what type of experiments were taking place on the coronavirus at WIV?

Italy announces a dramatic drop in COVID death count

According to Summit News, a newspaper in Italy is reporting that the Italian government is revising its methodology for counting COVID deaths and this has resulted in a dramatic drop in the number of deaths attributed to the virus. Il Tempo reports that the Italian Higher Institute of Health (IHIH) has officially revised the official COVID death count in that country down to 3,783, instead of the previously reported 130,468. This happened because the government will no longer include people with underlying health conditions in its official COVID counts. It is the difference between dying ‘with’ COVID and dying ‘from’ COVID. The paper reports that in 97.1% of the COVID deaths, people had between one and five underlying health issues. The IHIH reports: “All the other Italians who lost their lives had from between one and five pre-existing diseases. Of those aged over 67 who died, 7% had more than three co-morbidities, and 18% at least two,” writes Young.“ According to the Institute, 65.8% of Italians who died after being infected with Covid were ill with …

Why did Communist China start doubling its order for COVID tests in May 2019?

The Daily Mail reports that Internet 2.0 (a group of US and Australian researchers) found evidence, that the Chinese province of Hubei (where Wuhan is located), the Wuhan Institute of Virology and Wuhan University of Science and Technology, were ordering an unusual number of PCR tests and machines used to test for COVID and other diseases back in May 2019.

Don’t Fear COVID!

This almost sounds blasphemous but there is truth here. When I had COVID and those nasty pneumonias on top of it, fear tried to enter my heart and my thoughts. I had to battle to take every thought captive for Christ and not let fear and its buddy, gloom, complicate my recovery. Even after as I enter into my fifth month of long haul covid, there are times in which fear, and its new friend, hopelessness, try to overwhelm me. I don’t let it because fear and gloom and hopelessness complicate our view of a situation and make it very difficult to remain positive. Being positive during illness, injury or dire straits is crucial to a faster and more complete recovery. I meet a lot of people affected by COVID. Some who are right now in the throes of it. And yes, I follow all the protocols so when someone is contagious I chat with them from a distance. While there are common physical effects of the disease, there is another common element. Fear. The …

Study: Nearly 50% of COVID hospitalizations were mild or asymptomatic

A recent study examining nearly 50,000 COVID cases admitted to 100 Veteran Affairs (VA) hospitals in the US has come to some startling conclusions. The researchers (Dr. Fillmore et al) discovered that between March 2020 and January 2021 (pre-vaccination period), 36% of the COVID admissions were actually asymptomatic, meaning they were showing no symptoms of the virus or had mild symptoms. The number who had mild or no symptoms jumped to 48% of COVID admissions from mid-January to the end of June 2021. The researchers concluded that in the first half of 2021, nearly half of the admissions were either for unrelated health issues or for mild symptoms of the virus. According to the report, VA hospitals test every admission for COVID. Many were admitted for other issues, and only found out they had asymptomatic or a mild case of COVID once they were in the hospital. The researchers noted that this study involved mostly men and took place largely before the Delta variant hit. READ: New study indicates about half of COVID hospitalizations this year …

Nepal: Do they have COVID too?

Do you believe something? Are you religious in any way? How are you holding on to your faith in this COVID time? Most religions do not fit with COVID restrictions. We have a neighbor who goes to church more than us. I go to church online, and I have been watching services on the Internet for a long time now. We have COVID restrictions, where we live, and they make it hard to attend church services. I miss those services, and the other people in the church. Our neighbor is a lady who goes to a church, somewhere. I don’t know the church, but she is a friend. I was embarrassed sometimes, when I talked to her because she kept going to her church, on Sundays. A few days ago I asked her about her church, and she told me she couldn’t go there anymore. She hadn’t gone to church for three weeks because of a COVID outbreak in the congregation. We are struggling here, but imagine living in a country like Nepal, in Asia. …

CDC study: Over 80% of Americans have COVID antibodies

One of the reasons that COVID spread so quickly last year is because it was a new virus, that most believe had been genetically manipulated in a lab in Wuhan, China, before it leaked out. We had not seen it before and as a result there was no natural immunity to the virus in the human population. As a result, the virus spread rapidly, impacting those with underlying health issues and particularly those over the age of 65.

Is Covid the Real Enemy?

We have lost many things of late, and the art of disagreement is one of them. Love is another victim. These and other things we lost are the very things that made us special. Things like getting along, enjoying life together, diversity of opinions, and basic civility. But these are not victims of some lab leaked, human-manufactured virus. These things are lost because of an aggressively multi-billion-dollar propaganda campaign that shut down the voice of Christian conservatism and created fear, anger, and distrust between citizens and neighbors. This program censors and erases any dissenting voices. Freedom of speech has become mocked and if you question the created narrative of we’re right, you are treated as if you an enemy of the state. Sound familiar? Once you’re an enemy of the state, you are an enemy of its citizens and a danger to your neighbors. All because you question the narrative that masks and vaccines work. Even when it is clear, they don’t work that well. If they did work, then why do vaccinated people still …

Can COVID save us from COVID? What happened to God?

I have noticed, recently, that no one wants to talk about COVID. Possibly some medical experts are still talking, but people I know talk about anything else, and they shut down COVID conversations. I just went to a family reunion, outside and with safe distancing, and the topic was dismissed whenever it came up. We are in a state of fatigue. Since I am writing about COVID, I need to give a disclaimer. I am not any kind of medical authority, and I am not giving medical advice. Any writing that can be labelled a conspiracy theory will be banned and punished, and I’m not looking for that. My plan is to refer to some reliable and respectable sources. You might be surprised at what the experts are saying these days. Medical scientists have two big concerns with COVID vaccines right now; dangerous variants and waning efficacy. Where I live, the Delta variant is the new COVID. People are getting infected and there are questions about how effective the vaccines are with the Delta variant. …

The Politicizing of COVID Has Become a Deadly Game

By Dr. Michael L. Brown I just lost another friend to COVID, this time, a 69-year-old father and grandfather, an elder in my home congregation, as faithful a Christian man as you will find. He joins the list of other friends and colleagues in the States who have died in the last year from COVID-related complications, along with an even longer list of loved ones and colleagues of some of my very close friends in India. At the same time, the extreme politicizing of COVID makes it difficult (if not almost impossible) to know who to trust when it comes to preventing the spread of the disease. This is a terrible shame. Personally, as much as I dislike wearing a mask, especially on long flights, I would wear one the rest of my life in public if I knew by doing so I was saving other people’s lives. With joy. When it comes to being vaccinated, if I was sure the vaccine had no long-term side-effects or dangers, I would get vaccinated every month if …

Study: Ivermectin may also prevent COVID infection

WARNING UPDATE: Though several studies suggest Ivermectin may be an effective treatment for COVID, there is increasing evidence that people are self-medicating with the drug, overdosing and poisoning themselves. This is a drug, and it should not be taken without a doctor’s prescription. READ: Kansas medical experts warn against rising self-use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19 AND CDC warns of increased Ivermectin overdoses Original Article continues here…. As the mainstream media and social media continue to bash Ivermectin, as an effective cure for COVID, studies are painting a different story. Not only is the drug showing to be a possible treatment for those who have caught the virus, a study published in a peer-reviewed medical journal concluded that Ivermectin may also be effective in preventing a person from catching COVID. And this study comes with an interesting twist, because it involved people working in the health care industry, who were on the front lines in the battle against COVID in India. The study, conducted by researchers from the ‘All India Institute of Medicine’, tested the …

Poll: Secular Americans, less likely to be vaccinated for COVID, than Christians

While some in the mainstream media are focussing on Evangelical Christians as one of the largest groups resisting the COVID vaccine, a study of the results of a May poll by Eastern Illinois University Assistant Political professor, Ryan Burge, has come to a different conclusion. His analysis of the data from a survey conducted by Data for Progress, revealed that it was the “young and secular” who were actually leading the unvaccinated charge. Burge wrote: “I don’t find a lot of evidence that evangelicals are the ones lagging behind. In fact, I find that those without any religious affiliation were the least likely to have received at least one dose of any COVID-19 vaccine.” Burge added that the results of the poll showed that in early May 2021, 62% of Evangelical Americans had received at least one vaccine shot. This compared to 72% of “non-evangelical Protestants” and 47% of the nones, those with no religious affiliation. After accounting for multiple factors, such as race, education, age, income, and gender that affects a person’s willingness and …
