The Serious Problems With the COVID-19 Tests: Should We Really Panic?

Below is a very important commentary by Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, chairman of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe Health Committee, concerning the problems with the COVID-19 tests that are going on and the general panic surrounding COVID-19. (The video is 10 minutes and 50 seconds long.)


In relation to Dr. Wodarg's commentary about Italy, it should be noted that yesterday in an interview Dr. Silvio Brusaferro, professor of Hygiene and Public Health; Head of Department of Medicine at University of Udine (Italy), and Head of Accreditation and Clinical Risk Management Unit at Integrated University Healthcare of Udine, said during a press conference at the Civil Protection in Rome (via Google translation) that positive deceased patients have an average of over 80 years - 80.3 to be exact - and are essentially predominantly male (Women are just 25.8 percent).

And he noted:

 The majority of the dead were carriers of chronic diseases.

"At present, in fact, the authorities are unable to distinguish those who died as a result of the virus, from those who were mostly carriers of other serious diseases and who, therefore, would not have died from Covid-19," he said.

The professor said that according to the data analyzed, the vast majority of the victims "had serious pathologies and in some cases the onset of an infection of the respiratory tract that could lead more easily to death. To clarify this point, and to provide real data, as we acquire the files we will go further to study them. However, the populations most at risk are the fragile ones, carriers of more pathologies."

So, in Italy, where the drama is about all the COVID-19 deaths, the reported deaths, in fact, could be caused by any number of other diseases because those who have died are fragile with other diseases.

In other words, as Dr. Wodarg points out in the video above, there is no justification at this time to suggest that COVID-19 is a dramatically dangerous new virus.

There appears to be manufactured panic.

    1. It's the test kits that are manufactured.
      It is the one thing we know for sure.

  2. This article backs up what Dr. Wodarg is saying:

    "“Seems the president of the Italian Higher Institute has some smarts. He understands that people who already have other serious health conditions, which have nothing to do with COV, can and do die from those other conditions, regardless of the fact that they’ve tested positive (on useless tests) for COV. He gets it. I predict a great future for him. If he keeps shooting his mouth off, he might find himself working as a weed puller in a forest. Or he might suddenly be diagnosed with the virus and find himself in isolation.

    Grit your teeth and plow through this piece from Rome, 13 March 2020, Agenzia Nova: “Coronavirus: ISS [Italian National Institute of Health]: in Italy there are only two deaths ascertained so far due to Covid-19” (Italian, English)

    “There may be only two people who died from coronavirus in Italy, who did not present other pathologies.

    This is what emerges from the medical records examined so far by the Higher Institute of Health, according to what was reported by the President of the Institute [Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS), Italian National Institute of Health], Silvio Brusaferro, during the press conference held today at the Civil Protection in Rome.

    ‘Positive deceased patients have an average of over 80 years – 80.3 to be exact…The majority of these people are carriers of chronic diseases. Only two people were not presently carriers of [other non-COV] diseases’, but even in these two cases, the examination of the files is not concluded and therefore, causes of death different from Covid-19 could emerge.”


    1. Very few even discuss the ancillary conditions that do the killing the Covid facilitates.

      Chinas situation was exacerbated by widespread TB in highly polluted environments. Diabetes, COPD and obesity will be the Murican flavor.

  3. We have our first Michigan Corona death. He had other problems but those cannot be described. The doctor announcing this said that you don't need a Corona test if you are just sick, are young and have no underlying illness. Who knew?:

    "I want to be clear that not everyone with COVID-19 symptoms, which include fever, cough and shortness of breath, needs to be tested."

    People who are experiencing mild symptoms who don’t have underlying medical conditions, are young and otherwise healthy do not need to be tested, Gilpin said. Those with medical conditions might be directed for further evaluation, he said.

    "There’s a very good chance that many of you may have COVID-19, frankly, and testing you is not going to necessarily make a difference with regard to how we treat you," Gilpin said.


  4. Facebook and Politifact insist that Ron Paul is wrong:

    Paul’s post was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Facebook.)

    "I can’t think of a more universally trusted person among virologists than" Fauci, who has served as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984, said Emily Bruce, an immunobiology faculty scientist at the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont.


  5. Beyond that, I've yet to see ANYONE recognize that all numbers are distorted because the tests being done are from a self-selected group of people who want to go to the doctor, and whose doctors have access to a test, and who choose to report the results of that test. Closer to real numbers will be after military has tested enough to get a real representative sample.
