Bizarre COVID-19 "Scientific Research"

Have you heard about the "research" that claims asymptomatic people can spread COVID-19? 

Here is a great commentary by Phil Magness of supposed "scientific research" behind the claim.

Here a link to the paper.



  1. “The detection rate of asymptomatic positive cases was very low, and there was no evidence of transmission from asymptomatic positive persons to traced close contacts. There were no asymptomatic positive cases in 96.4% (the percent included in the study) of the residential communities.”

    Meta-analysis of 54 studies
    Symptomatic ‘secondary attack rate’ 18%
    Asymptomatic rate 0.7%

    "An Epidemic is Not Driven by Asymptomatic Carriers" - Dr. Fauci

    Contact tracing and epidemiological studies show that healthy people (or positively tested asymptomatic carriers) are virtually unable to transmit the virus.

    Dynamic Change of COVID-19 Seroprevalence among Asymptomatic Population in Tokyo during the Second Wave

    Tokyo has 46.8% with antibodies, no lockdown, low death rate, and big increase in immunity during summer: “Seroprevalence increased from 5.8% to 46.8% over the course of the summer.”

    Antibody survey of 1,877 random healthy people in Japan. Immunity without illness or death! Are T-Cells recognizing and controlling the virus infected cells while immunity is attained?

    Dr. Kerkhove of WHO Comments on Asymptomatic COVID-19 Cases:
    "It still appears to be rare that an symptomatic individual transmits onward," Kerkhove said. "When we go actually go back and say how many them were truly asymptomatic, we find out that many have really mild disease."

  2. Other than the weirdness of not being able to taste or smell, having COVID was preferable to the regular flu. I felt slightly run down, but just took naproxen and went about my daily routine, including work and the gym. Everybody will get this virus, and there's nothing you can do about it, other than embrace the fact that humans get sick. This virus is just being used as an excuse to lock everyone in their homes and transfer what little wealth they have left to Jeff Bezos. Once COVID-19 dies down, there will be a new strain or a bird/swine/platypus flu to use as a boogeyman to keep the lockdowns in place in perpetuity.

  3. It's very common for people to just read the abstract and concluding sections of a paper without even bothering to see the data and how they were found. In my field, it's quite common to find data and analyses at odds with one another.

  4. Lets throw a giant orgy/party and invite the world and get herd immunity done with. I have had it twice now and hopefully thats enough

  5. That's how the "settled science" of climate change is done. The theory is put into the models and the models prove the theory. When the measurements don't match the models then the measurements need to be adjusted because they must have errors. So they look for a rationalization to adjust the measurements. There, the science is settled.
