According to a study of ten million people published in November, asymptomatic transmission of COVID-19 did not occur at all.
The paper is titled “Post-lockdown SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid screening in nearly ten million residents of Wuhan, China” and was published in the scientific journal Nature Communications. Approximately 10 million people were screened between May 14 and June 1, with researchers finding 300 asymptomatic cases. Testing of their 1,174 close contacts revealed 1,174 negative results, no positives, meaning that there was no asymptomatic transmission of COVID-19.
“The citywide nucleic acid screening of SARS-CoV-2 infection in Wuhan recruited nearly 10 million people, and found no newly confirmed cases with COVID-19. The detection rate of asymptomatic positive cases was very low, and there was no evidence of transmission from asymptomatic positive persons to traced close contacts. There were no asymptomatic positive cases in 96.4% of the residential communities,” the study reads.
Although an infected person can take a few days to develop symptoms, people who get infected and never develop symptoms “generally have low quantity of viral loads and a short duration of viral shedding, which decrease the transmission risk of SARS-CoV-2,” according to the study.
The results also remained the same after the asymptomatic individuals and their close contacts were placed in isolation for two weeks.
“None of [the] detected positive cases or their close contacts became symptomatic or newly confirmed with COVID-19 during the isolation period,” the study said.
These findings are consistent with other studies which show that most infected people hardly spread the virus and that if they do, they often spread it to people living in the same household or others with whom they come into close, sustained contact. This is not to say that everyone should throw caution to the wind, especially if they know or live with high-risk people or are high-risk themselves. But lockdowns and burdensome restrictions are clearly not the answer.
Prosecutors Demand LIFE IN PRISON on Bioterror Charges for Trump Supporter Who Licked an Envelope at Polling Location
This is what senseless COVID hysteria leads to.
A prominent Trump supporter is facing life in prison for licking an envelope at a polling location on election day and making a joke, which is apparently considered a bioterror hazard in the age of COVID-19 mass hysteria.
Peter Trzos, a Trump supporter from Keego Harbor, is in court under felony charges for what he claims was a joke made to a city clerk after the clerk made him lick an absentee ballot envelope while he was turning it in at a polling location. Big League Politics broke the story last month when the charges were announced.
“I kinda thought it was a joke and I thought it was funny at the time and then I was like ‘oh my gosh,’ I’m going to be arraigned and out on bond and have court fees and drug tested,” Trzos said. “I mean, you lose your whole life just because someone accused you of something.”
Trzos allegedly said, “Here’s some COVID for you,” in jest to city clerk Tammy Neeb, whose gross overreaction to the comment is now considered a felony in post-freedom America under the COVID-19 regime. A hysterical woman’s feelings now take precedence over the 1st Amendment.
“The envelope wasn’t licked. It wasn’t sealed closed. And Mr. Trzos didn’t want to lick the ballot, but this clerk made him remove his mask to lick the ballot,” attorney Nicholas Somberg said.
“And I’m supposed to remove my mask and lick an envelope that someone else has handled just to turn it in? If anything I am the one who was threatened,” Trzos added.
Prosecutors hope to make an example of Trzos after his long history as a community reformer pushing ballot initiatives in his city to oppose civil asset forfeiture and to promote term limits. They are using past marijuana offenses as an excuse to give him a potential life sentence even though marijuana has since been made legal and is now considered an essential business in the state.
Keego Harbor Police Chief John Fitzgerald has made it clear that the system is intent upon punishing Trzos regardless of the facts of the case.
“Though requesting charges through the Oakland County Prosecutors Office against him for the crime of “Harmful Substance/Device-Person Falsely Exposed” may seem like an overreach to some, we believe it was appropriate in this circumstance due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and how it disrupted workers in an active polling place during a presidential election. Though he may have construed this to a glib statement or a joke we had to look at the totality of the circumstances,” Fitzgerald said.
“This was not an act of political defiance, such as not wearing a mask in a public place in violation of health department rules, but it was an overt act, that fit the current criminal code definition as determined by the Prosecutor’s Office, that was specifically directed at an individual with intent to make them believe they are being exposed to a harmful biological substance. It has the semblance of shouting “Fire” in a crowded theater only in this case it was threatening COVID exposure in a crowded polling place during a pandemic. Additionally, according to the City Clerk, the subjects absentee ballot was processed and voted as required, though poll workers used extra PPE and precautions while handling it,” he added.
Big League Politics will continue to provide updates to this case as it progresses through the court system.
