Johns Hopkins has to discipline young researcher

Using statistical analysis, a senior lecturer from Johns Hopkins University (JHU) has demonstrated that COVID-19 has resulted in no excess deaths, yet the university has censored the article online. And the fact checkers are all over this. She concluded that the deaths of “older people stayed the same before and after COVID-19.” This finding was contrary to expectation: “Since COVID-19 mainly affects the elderly, experts expected an increase in the percentage of deaths in older age groups. However, this increase is not seen from the CDC data. In fact, the percentages of deaths among all age groups remain relatively the same.”

So in a rush to woke, JH has pulled her article and declared it “was being used to support false and dangerous inaccuracies about the impact of the pandemic. " The author was "just" a master's candidate in economics, not a "real" doctor. She didn't do it right. One more career down the drain in the fight for truth. Even science can't compete with woke.

If you've never visited an elderly friend or relative in the winter/spring season of flu, you perhaps don't realize that nursing homes often have quarantines and that perhaps 50,000 in the over 65 population died from the flu in 2017-18. Also, the elderly die disproportionately from falls, and pneumonia. I can see that the lockdowns in retirement homes, and with relatives taking extra care of their elders, deaths from other causes may be down even if Covid deaths are up. Many more children died of the flu in 2017 than of Covid in 2020. Again, that may be the extra precautions and schools closing.

Not a single business was closed during the flu season of 2017-18, and the economy roared. But I do think we'll have an excess number of deaths due to all the missed doctor's appointments and vaccinations in 2020, also suicides and depression which can lead to fatalities.
