After Claiming Asymptomatic Cases of COVID-19 are ‘Very Rare’, W.H.O. Flip-Flops on Claim One Day Later
Just one day after admitting that asymptomatic of COVID-19 are “very rare,” the disgraced globalist World Health Organization (WHO) is walking back their claim.
“I wasn’t stating a policy of WHO or anything like that, I was just trying to articulate what we know,” said Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, leader of the WHO’s emerging diseases and zoonosis unit.
“And in that I used the phrase ‘very rare,’ and I think that’s a misunderstanding to state that asymptomatic transmission globally is very rare,” she added.
She was forced to backtrack after opponents of coronavirus-related shutdowns seized upon the comments to highlight exactly how the experts have failed in their predictions throughout the pandemic.
“We shut our nation down, nearly destroyed the economy, and have people wearing masks for no reasons other than govt. control,” Newsmax TV host John Cardillo wrote in a Tweet.
“It makes sense,” Dr. Faheem Younus, chief of infectious diseases at the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health, wrote in a Twitter post. “Each cough may emit ~3000 and sneeze ~40,000 droplets from a symptomatic patient. The risk is much less with asymptomatic.”
Big League Politics reported yesterday on the WHO’s admission that indicated that the entire pretense of the global quarantine may have been a lie:
The disgraced World Health Organization (WHO) has deceived the masses since the beginning of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic with their China-centric propaganda, and they have flip-flopped yet again on one of their pronouncements that initially fomented the mass hysteria that swept the world.
“From the data we have, it still seems to be rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a secondary individual,” announced Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, who leads the WHO’s emerging diseases and zoonosis unit, during a news briefing at the United Nations agency’s Geneva headquarters. “It’s very rare.”
“We have a number of reports from countries who are doing very detailed contact tracing,” she added. “They’re following asymptomatic cases. They’re following contacts. And they’re not finding secondary transmission onward. It’s very rare.”
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had based their insane and Orwellian “social distancing” guidelines based off of the belief that asymptomatic carriers were spreading COVID-19 all over, which now appears to be a lie.
“These findings also suggest that to control the pandemic, it might not be enough for only persons with symptoms to limit their contact with others because persons without symptoms might transmit infection,” a CDC study published on Apr. 1 claimed, citing the need to be alarmed over the “potential for presymptomatic transmission.”
Turns out the alarmism of the CDC was not rooted in reality, and the draconian response that resulted was likely based on a pack of lies. Dr. Van Kerkhove is now resorting to common sense, saying that the focus should be primarily on people who actually exhibit symptoms rather than the entirety of society to ease the pandemic.
“What we really want to be focused on is following the symptomatic cases,” Van Kerkhove said. “If we actually followed all of the symptomatic cases, isolated those cases, followed the contacts and quarantined those contacts, we would drastically reduce” new cases of COVID-19.
Previously, the WHO had fomented hysteria regarding so-called “silent spreaders” of coronavirus. They had claimed that 75 percent of folks who seemed asymptomatic when testing positive for coronavirus would go onto develop the disease. That statistic now seems dubious, at best.
The WHO ought to be defunded and disbanded globally due to their reckless incompetence throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
