It is official, well according to the BBC, the sky is falling. The number of deaths from coronavirus in Iran is nearly triple what Iran’s government claims, a BBC Persian service investigation has found. The Iranian government’s own records appear to show almost 42,000 people died with Covid-19 symptoms up to 20 July, versus 14,405 reported by its health ministry. The number of people known to be infected is also almost double official figures: 451,024 as opposed to 278,827. Iran has been one of the worst-hit countries outside China. In recent weeks, it has suffered a second steep rise in the number of cases.
How about some context? Context is king in not allowing folks to lose their heads and believe the propaganda of the various financial institutions which control the world’s governments. The death rate from seasonal flu is typically around 0.1% in the U.S., according to news reports. But how do they calculate and come to this number? Its all a bit of a mystery. Added to the mystery at present is the increasing number of tested covid cases.
Is it only me who notes the correlation between more tests being done and more cases detected? However, more cases being detected is not correlated with more deaths? If anything at the moment the number of deaths are decreasing even when the numbers are conflated by deaths by other causes of death being added to boost numbers to show that the effects of Covid are getting worse!
According to the CDC, a model uses a ratio of deaths-to-hospitalizations in order to estimate the total influenza-associated deaths from the estimated number of influenza-associated hospitalizations. A full convoluted article concerning the model can be accessed here. The bottom line, if one was to view such models with the lens of common sense, one may come to the conclusion that there are lies damn lies and statistics. The lies damn lies and statistics no doubt cater and pander to the agenda of big pharma and the agendas of those financial institutions controlling the governments.
Financial institutions controlling the governments? Is that not a bit of tin hat conspiracy? Again the lens of common sense would see that every country in the world has a debt. The obvious elephant in the room is the question of who owns the debt?
If we take the information in red (the uncovered data of the BBC) from the graph we can see that the number of deaths per day varies. Even if we assumed, at its worst, there was a constant of 500 deaths per day, in a year (365 days) there would be 182, 500 deaths (500 X 365). The population of Iran is 81.8 million as of 2018. As a percentage:
100 X (500 X 365)/ 818,000,000 = 0.022%
Why the panic?
Do you smell a rat? Perhaps the figures need to be juggled around a bit? Allow for delays or comparisons with previous years to make some adjustment to this years figures? The bottom line, the panic of the pandemic has to do with something else. I think that most people using the lens of common sense can see that.
“Last week, there were 61 coronavirus-related deaths, or an average of 8.71 per day.That still remains below the fatality rate for the seasonal flu in Israel, which during the 14-week flu season kills on average between 10 to 13 people per day.”Link
