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.
