Mark the End of the Pandemic
December 18, 2021, the Feast of the Expectation of the Blessed Virgin Mary marked the end of the Coronavirus pandemic
Within a week or two, more people will have Covid than at any other time in the pandemic. The medical tyrants will announce this news as something terrible, which is the exact opposite of the truth. The exact opposite.
The pandemic is over because nature has won out against (stupid and cruel) human effort. Why do we say this?
Because it’s what we’ve been saying all along:
Caution in the face of uncertainty was wise in February-March 2020
By late April, uncertainty diminished
Lockdowns and isolation actually worsened the pandemic by slowing the spread and delaying herd immunity, at least to the initial strain
Lockdowns also put people out of work, caused or aggravated psychological and emotional disorders, and socially damaged a generation of children
Dangerous therapeutics were and still are applied—therapeutics that have proven more deadly than the disease itself while effective and cheap therapeutics were suppressed
Vaccines were rushed to market without proper testing, and the testing that was performed was flawed and tainted with outright fraud and falsification
The media, Big Medicine, and government combined to create undue panic and paranoia for their own nefarious ends
All this was summarized here on May 16, 2020:
But now the end is upon us.
Omicron has become the mega-dominant variant in the United States, and its ascent has been remarkable. In one week, Omicron went from 12 percent to 73 percent of cases according to Fox News:
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that omicron variant is now the dominant strain of the coronavirus in the United States, making up 73.2% of new infections in the week that ended Dec.18—up from just 12.6% the prior week.
And there’s more good news: Omicron is spreading way faster than delta. Look at this familiar chart from NY Times. Look at the righthand side. Notice that the line for new cases is nearly vertical for the past week.
It’s remarkable because it’s coming off a lower peak rather than out of trough. In other words, acceleration. This means the increase in new cases tomorrow will larger than the increase today or the day before. Which means omicron is spreading very fast, and it isn’t even in all 50 states.
Before you think I’m a jerk for cheering people catching a virus, read on.
Now, look at The NY Times chart again, but this time look at the lower, righthand corner: deaths.
Death are flat. Hospitalizations, too are rising much slower than cases. But also remember that last week, 78 percent of cases were the more virulent delta strain. In other words, all of those deaths and hospitalizations are from delta or earlier variants, not omicron. And we know this because of news out of the UK where omicron is much more widely spread per 100,000. Take a look at this chart, which I found on Zerohedge:
Deaths are flat or declining.
There’s more good news along these lines from the brilliant Alex Berenson:
The Danish data also show that people with Omicron are both less likely to be hospitalized than those with other variants and released from the hospital much more quickly - in line with what South African health authorities have reported.
On Friday, for example, the Danes reported that the total number of hospital patients with Omicron since the epidemic began reached 77, up by 20 patients from Thursday.
But the number of Omicron patients currently hospitalized rose only by eight between Thursday and Friday, from 17 to 25. Thus 12 out of the 17 Omicron patients on Thursday appear to have been released overnight.
Compared to Monday’s report, the trend is even more clear. The number of Omicron cases has roughly tripled, but the number of people hospitalized has barely budged, from 14 to 25.
This all adds up to what we predicted shortly after omicron emerged out of South Africa in November: omicron not only defeated the more dangerous strains of Coronavirus, it shatters the narrative that has kept the world under fascist dictatorship.
Congratulations, we’ve made it. Though many of us will catch Covid in the next two weeks, very few of us will suffer a severe case. And, this is likely the last gasp of the Wuhan Flu, the China Virus. The fascists will continue to push the narrative, but the narrative has cracked. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men won’t be able to make the narrative believable again.
