What Happens To Chinese Wuhan Covid When A State Goes Wide-Open?

I was taking a look at Worldometer and noticed something odd about Florida…

They show NO new cases.

Makes a fellow go “Hmmm….”

Is it a reporting artifact? I looked at this a few times last week too, and every time Florida was zero. I’ve chosen to set the report to “yesterday” as that gives more complete data than the day in progress. This graph was sorted by most total cases. Florida WAS a hot spot. Not anymore.

It looks to me like they took a small “bump” on going full open, then just got over it. The “pandemic” is over in Florida.

Despite all the panic, doom & gloom, and frantic hair pulling, it looks like just getting back to life as usual and “moving on” works the best. It’s been that way for a few million years, so I’m not surprised we are adept at it, metabolically. “15 days to slow the spread” was never intended to be 500 days and never return to normal life…

    Florida has stopped wasting resources on such over the last couple weeks. I would say, most of the testing that was done was retesting, which is not delineated in the totals anyhow. Think about it, how many people got tested free daily that were positive initially across the country? Yet, again, we have statistical anomalies that are not really accounted for,,,,,, Kinda like the Flu disappearing last year. It didn’t.

    Here is a good example of such deception, just like climate data now days.

    I note that “Founder of Moderna Canceled by Twitter for Confirming Truth”, that is to says he attests that after a Moderna injection there is some shedding of the spike protein.

    Perhaps it’s (partly) an artifact of Florida shifting from daily reporting to weekly reporting:

    Thanks for that!

    Beginning June 4, COVID-19 case and vaccine reporting will be available on a weekly basis at floridahealthcovid19.gov every Friday.

    Most recently on Thursday, the Florida Department of Health reported 1,872 new cases, bringing the state’s overall total to 2,329,867 cases since the virus was first detected on March 1, 2020.

    So that’s why it dropped out just after the 4th…

    Then 1872 in a week means 1872/7= 267 / day. That would put them at the bottom of the graph with New Jersey / North Carolina in that top graph. But with a much larger population.

    21,000,000 / 267 =78652. So your odds are roughly 1 in 78 thousand / day. And dropping.

    Catch here is that corona virus epidemic season for the tropics and subtropics is summer, not winter. All of the numbers are suspect, even the influenza numbers since those tests are primarily PCR tests now. We really don’t know what really happened, other than some areas look like they didn’t handle it well and others look like they did better.

  6. H.R. says:

    What’s also problematic, besides ‘cases’, is the number of reported deaths ‘from Covid.’

    Because of the financial incentives for Covid deaths, and the support for the political narrative by inflating cases, we’re never going to know WTH the real numbers were for 2020 and into the firsr Quarter of 2021.

    I’m not positive, but I think we are starting to get fairly accurate numbers now. I did read something somewhere – here, maybe – about under reporting cases and deaths now to make the current occupants of the Whitehouse look like they are in command and control of FauXi’s Flu.
    THEN… we have the number of deaths from taking the jabs. That’s being downplayed or downright hidden.

    And there are people who still think the government should be involved in healthcare?!?! Nuckin’ futz!

    What happens when you hire college students and “recent college graduates” in basket weaving to check the correctness of actual authorities…

    BTW, one of my daughter’s friends was hired by one of the local “Tech Companies” as a censor. Her job is to read things posted and flag them if they are out of bounds of the book of rules… So I know just what kind of person they hire. She is not the brightest bulb on the tree, but not stupid either. She wants to become a chef… Graduated high school, and I think the local college, with some kind of soft degree… Leans very left (as, it seems, do most of her cohort).


    I’ll take a look at it.


    So once things drop to a low enough level to not care much, data drops out… and we get “speculation” (or lies) instead. Even from the CDC.


    Interesting. So as Florida ought to be in the thick of it (this being early Summer there) they are dropping out the floor… The graph continues to drop…


    Per Worldometer, new deaths in the USA were 392 yesterday. Take 300,000,000 population getting “the jab”, IF you have a death risk of “only” one in a 100,000, that’s 3000 dead. Last statistic I saw (and it was deflated IMHO) had “only” 6000 dead from the vaccine in the USA and 10,000 (or near those numbers) if you included Europe.

    Now given that all sorts of people have died on getting the shot and most of them are brushed off as “coincidence” … I’m pretty sure that’s under reported by about 10 x rate.

    At what point is “death from vaccine” risk higher than “death from virus”? Especially for the remaining cohort of kids who are the bulk now of the un-vaccinated and have near zero chance of death from Chinese Wuhan Covid?

    From what I’ve seen in this farce of a pandemic, the worst decisions and guidelines came from government organizations. The W.H.O., C.D.C., etc. etc. right one down the line. The best decisions, treatments, and guidelines came out of front line M.D.s treating patients and sharing what worked and what didn’t.

    Given that, I say just abolish ALL of the government “Health” departments and apparatus. You would be better off with a big Medical Web Site where anyone with an M.D. degree or similar can post things. Free and open peer to peer sharing works better than government garbage collection.

    I’m finding some useful information in that Vanity Fair article, but it is very hard to keep reading it with garbage statements like:

    “disreputable wing nuts on one side of them”,

    “When Trump himself floated the lab-leak hypothesis last April, his divisiveness and lack of credibility made things”,

    “under the cloud of Donald Trump’s toxic racism”

    That kind of statement makes the whole article a “Toxic Hit Piece” in a Partisan War; not an informative news article. It casts strong doubt on everything else in the article. IF they are happy warriors who will either lie for effect or sling mud for partisan points; what else are they willing to lie about and distort “for effect” (or best case, swallow such lies whole and un-examined, then regurgitate them).

    I’ll try to get through the rest of it to give it a fair shot; but as of now I’m hitting diminishing returns and the need to constantly edit out the garbage.

  9. E.M.Smith says:

    OK, I was able to finish it…

    Filtering out the garbage Political Spin was a chunk of work. Clearly the author suffers from TDS Trump Derangement Syndrome. They do collect a decent set of history (though wrapped in spin) and names.

    I found it funny that they start off calling lab leak a “conspiracy theory” and several other unsavory terms; but by the end, under the Glorious Dear Leader Biden, it is gaining traction and might actually be what really happened…

    So much spin, so many words, all to really just say:

    Uh, you know that lab leak theory? It’s got some pretty good evidence.

    Plus, a lot of the people involved tried to hide their funding and involvement. Looks suspicious too.

    I suppose it is worth it just for the listing of names, organizations, and dates. An extract of that part, minus all the political spin, hit bits, and garbage commentary; that would be a nice article.

  10. Pinroot says:

    I’ve got a question about the gene therapy injection (GTI) that I haven’t been able to find much of an answer to, although I’m not quite sure how to phrase the question for a search engine. Basically, getting the GTI causes your body to create spike proteins (I’m not sure which cells develop the spike; I’m assuming muscle cells since that where the injection goes). Once your body starts producing spike proteins, it then starts producing antibodies to the spike protein. However, there’s also the viral part of the SARS-CoV2 virus. I can’t find anything that says that your body also produces antibodies against the viral part of virus, just the spike protein (I know some of my terminology here isn’t great, so bear with me). So do antibodies against a spike protein also protect against the virus in some way? I know the spike binds to receptors to allow the virus to be delivered, so attacking the spike should prevent the virus from binding to the receptors, but is that enough to prevent the virus from finding another way of infecting the host? Any ideas?

  11. E.M.Smith says:

    The virus consists of a shell (with associated shell, or capsule, or envelope proteins) and spikes (with their associated proteins). In a natural infection, you can create antibodies to any / all of those bits. Inside the virus there is also a “payload” of mRNA (and other stuff in other viruses, such as DNA, depending on the type of the virus. I believe you can also make antibodies to the payload, but it isn’t very effective or common as it is typically hidden inside the virus capsule or cell.

    For the vaccine, they do not create the entire spike. They did some testing to find what parts of the spike gave a good immune response, with minimum side-effects / damage. Then used custom made mRNA for just that part of the spike. Thus they talk about “spike proteins” not “spike” production.

    When injected, what cells make the spike proteins depends on what cells the “soup” encounters. Properly injected into a muscle, this OUGHT to mostly be muscle cells and some of the connective tissues around them. However… IF the injection hits a blood vessel, it could end up being mostly blood cells. (It is thought some of the lethal and near lethal blood reactions might be from that, and that is why the plunger is supposed to be pulled back – aspirated – to assure you are not in a blood vessel…) There will likely be some blood cells “infected” with the mRNA even in the muscle, but hopefully not enough to be a problem.

    One of the big questions is just “Since it is only a part of the spike proteins, will immunity be strong enough, long lasting enough, and survive mutations of the spike enough?” Nobody knows, but so far we are seeing variations that have “vaccine escape”… And we are seeing vaccinated people get sick.

    There are some folks looking to add some capsule proteins to the next round of mRNA soup.

    Traditional “killed virus” vaccines have all the package in them, just with denatured payload / broken up virus parts.

    What you care about:


  12. AS you know Biden is over here at the moment. People seem generally well disposed to him.. Ironically there was a spike in covid cases not a mile away from his hotel

    How come him and the other world leaders and those in their entourage didn’t need to quarantine when coming over here nor will they when they return home?

    It seems the Georgia recount of ballot papers is still live with a court case on 21 June


    Very little about that in our own newspapers as other news is crowded out by G7 so is there any coverage of it in the States?

  13. The True Nolan says:

    @climatereason: “How come him and the other world leaders and those in their entourage didn’t need to quarantine when coming over here nor will they when they return home?”

    Of course you and I know the answer to that, but to say it out loud: “Because he and the other world leaders are self serving psychopaths who makes rules to control YOU, but not THEMSELVES. And if you don’t like it, they have men with machine guns who can change your mind.”

    I apologize for being blunt, but there it is.

  14. philjourdan says:

    I saw a study that basically proved lockdowns and masks were impotent. I can dig it up if anyone wants to read it. But they compared open states to locked down mask mandate states and found no statistical difference in infection rate.

    The only thing that stood out was the states that sent infected people into nursing homes had a much higher death rate than states that did not.

    @Another Ian:

    “Approval” to the white list depends on your name and IP address. If something reboots and changes your IP address, or you post from another location, it goes to moderation again, until I wake up and see it and hit “yeah, it’s him he’s approved” button again.

    It requires no action on your part, no reminder. It also doesn’t mean anything about you. Just a mechanical process that I do when I get on the blog each day.


    Though looking at it, it looks like you had a typo in your domain name: “…ond.coma” so it thought there was a “new you”…

  18. E.M.Smith says:

    Oh, and per the carditis thing:


    “52.5% of total reports” come from the 24 and under age group who have had 8.8% of the vaccinations.

    REUTERS – “A higher-than-expected number of young men have experienced heart inflammation after their second dose of the mRNA COVID-19 shots from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna, according to data from two vaccine safety monitoring systems, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Thursday.”

    […] “We clearly have an imbalance there,” Dr. Tom Shimabukuro, deputy director of the CDC’s Immunization Safety Office, said in a presentation to an advisory committee to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration meeting on Thursday. The overwhelming majority of the cases have occurred within a week of vaccination, Shimabukuro said.”

    EM a real Hockey Stick graph, that is quite shocking.

  20. H.R. says:

    @another ian re moderation – Yup. A typo in the email address will do it.

    A year or two back, I started getting kicked into moderation. After about the 3rd or 4th time fishing me out, E.M. spotted the typo in my email addy. It was an extraneous ‘.’ somewhere in there.

    I had cleared my cache and about everything else, so autofill for forms, like the Name and email lines on this blog, used the first instance of me filling out the boxes… and I had made a typo.
    Grrrrr 😡

  21. H.R. says:

    @AC Osborn – That graph says, “The cure is worse than the disease.”
