  • “A Fresh Perspective on the Covid-19 Numbers” – Part 2

    Posted by Jonathan on April 17th, 2020 (All posts by )

    Robert Prost follows up his previous email (posted here):

    Plotted below are the covid-19 confirmed cases for Wisconsin. The data is graphed so that the first derivative plot is scaled up for better visibility. The fact that the graph has been jumping so erratically means that somebody is manipulating the data. This first derivative is the rate of change of the accumulation of new cases. That fact that it jumps around means that either someone is pushing the hospitals to change their definition of ‘confirmation’ or the virus has a mind of its own. If the changes were due to the sudden availability of additional testing, the increase should be all in one direction if additional cases were being detected. Someone is playing games in pursuit of a political agenda. Were I to hazard a guess, I’d say it is due to our addled governor, aka Tony Baloney.

    Wisconsin COVID-19 Confirmed Cases

    Robert concludes: “This data certainly does not give a good reason to extend the lockdown.”

      We knew the whole thing jumped the shark when one term Tony requested a field hospital at the Alliant Energy Center from FEMA. Hope they laugh him out of the room.

      There must be a funding thing going on for this faking of numbers. New York state did it big time (to quote Cheney) by listing all “probables” as WuFlu.

      It would be interesting to see if expanding definition correlates with Democrat Governors.

    3. Gavin Longmuir Says:

      We are not seeing useful numbers trumpeted in the media. The Johns Hopkins site linked in Dr. Prost’s original post gives the following current numbers:

      3,557,493 people have been tested in the US (about 1% of the US population).

      700,282 of those people tested positive for C-19 (i.e., 4 out of 5 people who get tested do NOT have the virus).

      111,987 of those who tested positive have been hospitalized (1.e., 6 out of 7 people who have the virus do NOT get sick enough to need hospitalization)

      Of the people who get tested, only about 1 person out of 33 ends up in hospital. And of course, most of them survive.

      The Black Death, this is not.

      But the harm from the lock-downs in real and growing.

      Mike, you were right about remdesivir, and the rest has serious implications for a real way to open up the world: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2U4DAQ3kjRs

      What’s the scale for the DeltaCases/DeltaTime plot?

      Ok. There is the answer. If they say it is not about the Benjamins, it’s about the Benjamins.

      The Gilead news looked to me just like a gambit to pump up the stock price. It started with a leaked video that was then picked up by every media outlet looking to run with any ChiCom virus story.

      Nah. There’s one guy/gal who compiles the data when their desk is clear and the boss isn’t screaming about something irrelevant. Ours was in inventory and raw materials. When in doubt (always), take a walk with a clipboard and flashlight.

      There should be a statistical test for it……
