WHO (Accidentally) Confirms Covid is No More Dangerous Than Flu | The off-Guardian

Head of Health Emergencies Program “best estimates” put IFR at 0.14%

Kit Knightly

The World Health Organization has finally confirmed what we (and many experts and studies) have been saying for months – the coronavirus is no more deadly or dangerous than seasonal flu.

The WHO’s top brass made this announcement during a special session of the WHO’s 34-member executive board on Monday October 5th, it’s just nobody seemed to really understand it.

In fact, they didn’t seem to completely understand it themselves.

At the session, Dr Michael Ryan, the WHO’s Head of Emergencies revealed that they believe roughly 10% of the world has been infected with Sars-Cov-2. This is their “best estimate”, and a huge increase over the number of officially recognised cases (around 35 million).

Dr. Margaret Harris, a WHO spokeswoman, later confirmed the figure, stating it was based on the average results of all the broad seroprevalence studies done around the world.

As much as the WHO were attempting to spin this as a bad thing – Dr Ryan even said it means “the vast majority of the world remains at risk.” – it’s actually good news. And confirms, once more, that the virus is nothing like as deadly as everyone predicted.

The global population is roughly 7.8 billion people, if 10% have been infected that is 780 million cases. The global death toll currently attributed to Sars-Cov-2 infections is 1,061,539.

That’s an infection fatality rate of roughly or 0.14%. Right in line with seasonal flu and the predictions of many experts from all around the world.

0.14% is over 24 times LOWER than the WHO’s “provisional figure” of 3.4% back in March. This figure was used in the models which were used to justify lockdowns and other draconian policies.

In fact, given the over-reporting of alleged Covid deaths, the IFR is likely even lower than 0.14%, and could show Covid to be much less dangerous than flu.

None of the mainstream press picked up on this. Though many outlets reported Dr Ryan’s words, they all attempted to make it a scary headline and spread more panic.

Apparently neither they, nor the WHO, were capable of doing the simple maths that shows us this is good news. And that the Covid sceptics have been right all along.

UPDATE 9/10/20: In the interest of thoroughness, a desire to rely on primary sources, and not depending purely on mainstream sources (which may remove or amend articles), I decided to find the actual video of Dr Ryan’s remarks.

For some reason, although this was an important WHO meeting during an allegedly hyper-serious pandemic, the video is hard to find. The only place you are able to see it is the WHO’s own website, and even then you have to scrub through almost 6 hours of footage. Well, I did that, and you are welcome.

You can’t embed the WHO’s stream, but I can tell you to go to this page, click “Session 1” and skip to 1:01:33 to hear the exact quote:

Our current best estimates tell us that about ten percent of the global population may have been infected by this virus. This varies depending on country, it varies from urban to rural, it varies between different groups.”

UPDATE 13/10/2020: Here is the actual ripped audio:

California Medical Doctor Cures Over 1700 Patients with COVID Using Hydroxychloroquine

Comments by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

Doctors on the “front lines” treating COVID patients continue to try and speak out regarding the fact that there is a 100% cure rate for COVID by using hydroxychloroquine.

Dr. Brian Tyson from Southern California is one of the latest doctors to grant an interview talking about his experience in treating over 1700 COVID patients using hydroxychloroquine. None of his patients have died, and only one had to be admitted to the hospital.

This continues to be the biggest scandal of the COVID plandemic, and perhaps the largest scandal in medical history, where so many people are dying needlessly based on a positive COVID test and fear, as this information is censored in the corporate media as well as Big Tech social media platforms.

Even President Trump, who originally promoted hydroxychloroquine and allegedly was taking it himself, has now turned his back on the Front Line doctors who continue to successfully use hydroxychloroquine.

With his own alleged COVID diagnosis last week, President Trump instead chose to use and promote two new drugs that are being fast-tracked and are without a history of successful treatment yet.

The Forbidden COVID-19 Chronicles
Oct 5 – About Masks

Pamela A. Popper, President
Wellness Forum Health

Last week, YouTube took down one of my videos for violating “Community Standards.”

The video was concerning masks, and numerous studies published in mainstream medical journals were cited. We are appealing that decision and our appeal included a request to provide a list of which medical journals we are permitted to cite without censorship. As of the writing of this article there has been no response.

Here is our plan for ensuring that we can continue to distribute truthful information:

We have created a Bitchute site for our videos. The search engine is not great on BitChute, but here is the direct link to our site: https://www.bitchute.com/channel/PBxgBgr9rAE6/

We have created a site on Parler. Parler requires registration, which is somewhat of a pain, in order to access content. The site does not censor, but our videos (until this week) were linked to YouTube, so when YouTube took down the video, it also disappeared form Parler. Now they are linked to BitChute.

“Forbidden info” will be covered in the newsletter. The really “sensitive stuff” will appear weekly, with references when appropriate, in our newsletter.

We are going to post videos on our own site: www.wellnessforumhealth.com

In addition to posting all of the regular YouTube videos on our own site, we will post additional video content – content we know is likely to be censored – here as well.

Individuals who are direct subscribers to the newsletter and who are sent links from us daily for the newsletter and YouTube videos will be notified when an additional video has been posted on our own site to supplement the “milder” version of material on YouTube.

Direct subscribers will have access to all of the “forbidden” info easily!!

Data From “The Forbidden Mask” Video

This video reported the highlights of an editorial by Arthur Firstenberg concerning masks. Firstenberg is a scientist and journalist who attended Cornell Medical School for four years but did not finish due to illness.

He wrote:[1]

“As a person who went to medical school, I was shocked when I read Neil Orr’s study, published in 1981 in the Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. Dr. Orr was a surgeon in the Severalls Surgical Unit in Colchester. And for six months, from March through August 1980, the surgeons and staff in that unit decided to see what would happen if they did not wear masks during surgeries. They wore no masks for six months and compared the rate of surgical wound infections from March through August 1980 with the rate of wound infections from March through August of the previous four years. And they discovered, to their amazement, that when nobody wore masks during surgeries, the rate of wound infections was less than half what it was when everyone wore masks.”[2]

Surprised at this outcome, Firstenberg decided to look further to see if this was a fluke or if other studies had demonstrated the same effect. And they had.

And here are some of the studies he found:

“The wearing of a surgical face mask had no effect upon the overall operating room environmental contamination and probably work only to redirect the projectile effect of talking and breathing. People are the major source of environmental contamination in the operating room.”[3]

“To examine the efficacy of currently used synthetic-fiber disposable face masks in protecting wounds from contamination, human albumin microspheres were employed as “tracer particles,” and applied to the interior of the fact mask during 20 operations. At the termination of each operation, wound irrigates were examined under the microscope. Particle contamination of the wound was demonstrated in all experiments. Since the microspheres were not identified on the exterior of these face masks, they must have escaped around the mask edges and found their way into the wound. The wearing of the mask beneath the headgear curtails this route of contamination.”[4]

“Although cardiac catheterization-related infections are rare, caps and masks are often worn to minimize this complication. However, documentation of the value of caps and masks for this purpose is lacking. We, therefore, prospectively evaluated the experience of 504 patients undergoing percutaneous left heart catheterization, seeking evidence of a relationship between whether caps and/or masks were worn by the operators and the incidence of infection. No infections were found in any patient, regardless of whether a cap or mask was used. Thus, we found no evidence that caps or masks need to be worn during percutaneous cardiac catheterization.”[5]

“It has never been shown that wearing surgical face masks decreases postoperative wound infections. On the contrary, a 50% decrease has been reported after omitting face masks…These results indicated that the use of face masks might be reconsidered. Masks may be used to protect the operating team from drops of infected blood and from airborne infections, but have not been proven to protect the patient operated by a healthy operating team.”[6]

“The evidence for discontinuing the use of surgical face masks would appear to be stronger than the evidence available to support their continued use.’[7]

“Surgical face masks worn by patients during regional anaesthesia did not reduce the concentration of airborne bacteria over the operation field in our study. Thus they are dispensable.”[8]

From a review:

“We previously verified “no difference in the probability of developing the first episode of peritonitis without mask” and “no difference in the total number of episodes of peritonitis between patients performing bag exchange ‘with’ and ‘without’ face mask” (1). Furthermore, on Cox proportional hazard regression, “face mask had no protective effect for the occurrence of the first episode of peritonitis” (1). The current study shows that the occurrence of peritonitis in patients performing bag exchanges without a face mask is not different from that reported by other centers (2,3).

Eliminating the face mask would reduce CAPD costs (4,5) and would simplify the bag exchange procedure and the training of patients and assistants, thus adding to therapy success. The face mask may be an added annoyance to unaccustomed individuals during the bag-exchange procedure. Besides, hand contamination may result when the patient tries to correctly position the mask or involuntarily touches it. Adequate hand-washing, and not the act of wearing face mask, may possibly be the most important factor in infection control (6).

It has long been known that S. aureus nasal carriers are also skin carriers (7), and that bacteria may be transferred from hands to the exit site and the CAPD tubing during bag exchange. In this case, the wearing of a mask will not prevent peritonitis. Instead, the mask may be a source of bacterial contamination, from rubbing against the face (8).

The subject of this study—use of a face mask and prevention of infection—is an important and much neglected issue. McLure et al (9) suggested that wearing a face mask prevented downward dispersal of upper respiratory tract bacteria into agar blood plates during talking and head turning. However, a 50% reduction in surgical wound infection has been reported when masks were not in use (10).”[9]

“No significance difference in the incidence of postoperative wound infection was observed between masks group and groups operated with no masks. There was no increase in infection rate in 1980 when masks were discarded. In fact there was significant decrease in infection rate.  From the limited randomized trials it is still not clear that whether wearing surgical face masks harms or benefit the patients undergoing elective surgery.”[10]

Surgeons at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden stopped requiring face masks in 2010 for anesthesiologists and other non-scrubbed personnel in the operating room. ‘Our decision to no longer require routine surgical masks for personnel not scrubbed for surgery is a departure from common practice. But the evidence to support this practice does not exist,’ according to Dr. Eva Sellden.[11]

“Surgical site infection rates did not increase when non-scrubbed operating room personnel did not wear a face mask.”[12]

Two Cochrane Reviews concluded that “There was no statistically significant difference in infection rates between the masked and unmasked group in any of the trials.”[13]

“…overall there is a lack of substantial evidence to support claims that facemasks protect either patient or surgeon from infectious contamination.”[14]

“Although there is some evidence that scrubs, masks, and head coverings reduce bacterial counts in the operating room, there is no evidence that these measures reduce the prevalence of surgical site infection.”[15]

COVID-19 Survival Rates Have Many Scientists/Doctors Questioning Masks & Lockdown

Published 3 days ago on September 28, 2020 by


  • The Facts:All restrictions on restaurants and other business in Florida have been lifted, and so have local fines against people who refuse to wear masks after the CDC released new survival rates.
  • Reflect On:Why are opinions and narratives that oppose the WHO being censored, ridiculed, and largely ignored? Why aren’t they discussed openly and transparently?

What Happened: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently lifted all restrictions on restaurants and other business in Florida and banned local fines against people who refuse to wear masks. He did so after showing new statistics just released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) showing very high survival rates, as you can see from the picture picture above. The CDC has a page on their website titled “Covid-19 Pandemic Planning Scenarios.” According to them, “Each scenario is based on a set of numerical values for biological and epidemiological characteristics of COVID-19 illness, which is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. These values—called parameter values—can be used in models to estimate the possible effects of COVID-19 in U.S. states and localities. That’s where the numbers come from.

Questioning Lockdown & Masks, A Theme From The Very Beginning: The world’s leading scientists in the field and from other fields have been questioning lockdown measures from the very beginning of this pandemic, due to the fact that many of them believe and have believed that we are dealing with a virus similar, and even less severe than viruses that have been circling the globe for decades, infecting hundreds of millions and killings tens of millions of people every single year.
