On Tuesday, Just the News posted an article about the first year of the coronavirus pandemic.
The article reports:
COVID-19 was less lethal across nearly every age group in its first full year than previously thought, according to an updated review of global research from Stanford University’s Meta-Research Innovation Center (METRIC).
Between summer and Christmas 2021, METRIC’s estimates of deaths from infection fell by half in multiple age groups, including young people, and less sharply in others.
The international estimates, which have not been peer-reviewed, are not substantially different from the CDC’s own “best estimate” of COVID mortality in the U.S., last updated in March. They use different age ranges, making exact comparisons difficult.
The findings raise questions about ongoing COVID restrictions and mandates, particularly for schoolchildren and college students, who remain at the lowest overall risk from infection.
The risk-benefit ratio of vaccine boosters is also under scrutiny, with international authorities souring on their wide deployment and a new Israeli study finding that a fourth dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines doesn’t stop the Omicron variant.
The article includes the following screenshot:
I don’t mean to be flip, and I say this as someone who is over 70, but your chances of dying from almost anything increase after age 70, and that’s not news.
The article also notes something that our government and its medical tyrants have chosen to overlook:
Using medical claims records from Change Healthcare and a study population “fully vaccinated” last spring, the researchers found subsequent hospitalization least likely for Moderna and highest for Johnson & Johnson vaccine recipients.
But hospitalization was 50% lower and risk of death 75% lower among those with natural immunity “independent of age, sex, comorbidities, and vaccine type,” the study found.
Natural immunity is the best protection. If Omicron is a mild coronavirus and provides us that protection, then we are done with the pandemic.
Just a note–someone I know who is involved with a large organization told me that the organization currently has 85 coronavirus cases–5 of those are unvaccinated. None or those 85 cases required hospitalization.
