COVID Lockdowns vs. Sweden, Sweden, Sweden, Sweden...

It is an objective fact that democratic South Korea and Taiwan have contained the coronavirus better than their Communist neighbor China without the need for a totalitarian lockdown that would destroy their economies.

Guess what Western country followed the two democratic countries?

Sweden has followed the South Korea and Taiwan democratic model of containing the virus while its neighbor Norway followed the totalitarian Communist model which is favored by the United States liberal media and the so-called "Democrat" party who are presentingly promoting public hysteria.

Michael Fumento has been a science and epidemic hysteria investigator for the past thirty-five years. The investigator's writings were praised "by former CDC chief epidemiologist Dr. Alexander D. Langmuir as 'a major contribution, allaying public hysteria and focusing efforts for control and care to the high-risk groups most in need'" according to Real Clear Markets.

Fumento said of the coronavirus totalitarian lockdowns:

"South Korea didn't need them and Sweden hasn't used them even as its neighbor Norway has been praised [by the the liberal globalist media] for early implementation. Norway has reported over twice as many cases per capital and suddenly suffers its highest unemployment rate in 80 years.
(Real Clear Markets, "Coronavirus Death Predictions bring New Meaning to Hysteria," April 1, 2020)

Market Ticker, a few days ago, explained why the USA doesn't need the COVID Lockdowns:

Fact: Sweden has had 74,333 confirmed cases
Fact: Sweden has had 5,500 deaths.
Fact: Sweden has approximately 10 million residents, with the largest number by far in and around Stockholm (~2.4 million..)
Fact: Sweden did not lock down anything, has not passed any mandatory mask ordinances or constrained the people.  Instead they told their citizens to act like adults, rather than allowing them to be infantile screaming children (as we did here in the US.)
Fact: The death rate in Sweden from Covid-19 has fallen to an effective zero.
Fact: The case rate in Sweden is also falling precipitously.  On a log chart the case rate is effectively flat.
Fact: SWEDEN HAS OBTAINED HERD IMMUNITY AND THEIR DOCUMENTED CASE RATE IS 0.7% OF THEIR POPULATION!

What?

That's impossible, for a virus with an R0 of 3.0, right?

I don't care what epidemiologists assert, or what anyone else asserts: It has happened.

When you eliminate whatever is not possible whatever is left must be true, no matter how much you'd prefer it not be.  Your task then becomes to determine why it is true.

We know from the CDC that somewhere "around" 10x as many people have had Covid as have tested positive.  This number is somewhat "fuzzy", but that's the CDC's (and everyone else's) "best guess", given the data we have.  Now, in the US, we're pushing people to get tested but we can't feed that test requirement on a reasonably expeditious basis; three months into this it is taking multiple days to get results back.  Therefore the number of alleged "positives" is not only fanciful it's outright garbage.  RT-PCR tests are unreliable to start with; they have a material false positive rate.  But if you won't test people on a systematic and unchanged basis from a symptom (or not) predicate then the data you generate wobbles around and is worthless.

I've detected a number of these anomalies in the data here, and in the early days I called bull**** on the Wuhan data for the same reason -- China was clearly changing the terms to get tested although I couldn't prove it, because I'm not there.  I don't need to prove it; a virus does not "magically" infect people on a step-function basis.  Over a large population that does not happen so when it does you've got a data discontinuity -- that is, what you have is junk.

But it's very hard to not count bodies.

People get mad if you don't count them -- or try to count them twice.

Sweden has had 5,500 deaths.  They have 10 million people in their population.  That's a death rate from this bug of of one in 1,800, with virtually all of them being old and co-morbid individuals.

To put in percentage terms it's a rate of 0.06% in the population.

Or, if you prefer, since we have about 330 million citizens, about 33 times that is 181,000 deaths in the US.

Total.

We're at 125,590 total today.

That's because we spread it out, but didn't change a thing.  Ultimately, we'll wind up about where they are.

I remind you that yesterday their total was one death.

One.

For them, it's over.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Also, pray an Our Father now that God gives President Trump the grace to do His will in this present COVID hysteria crisis.

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
