I've said for months now that the countries most prone to a 2nd wave are those which prevented the spread too effectively, and Australia is a good
example. We wouldn't have had this 2nd wave we are now experiencing if we had taken a common sense approach and allowed young people to keep working
while encouraging older people to stay home. Many young people don't have any backup plan or the funds required to get them through these long
lockdowns but most older people are retired and they do have that ability. Countless young people are now jobless and their future is uncertain.
If every nation had taken a common sense approach like Sweden did then we wouldn't have devastated the global economy and we'd have a level of herd
immunity which would prevent further outbreaks. Instead we now have everyone leaving their houses, older people included, and the virus now has a
chance to spread and put those older people at higher risk. However, the places which had the most cases are not seeing a 2nd wave because they have
herd immunity. Experts constantly told us we were taking the wrong approach but no one wanted to listen to them, instead they were censored.
So lets take a look at some of the data to see if there's any evidence behind this theory. The following charts are provided by Google when you search
"coronavirus cases" and they show the number of new cases each day. I feel the data recorded for new cases is probably far more accurate than the
death data because at least we know there was probably a positive test involved. The chart for Australia shows we were able to completely flatten the
curve by the end of April but now that we're lifting the lockdowns and easing restrictions on businesses the number is again rising.
Keep in mind we have a total of 106 Covid-19 deaths in Australia which equates to 4 deaths for every 1 million people. That is at the very low end of
the scale but the MSM still treats a dozen new cases as if it's the worst thing that has ever happened. Compare that to the USA with a total of
135,828 deaths, equating to 410 deaths per 1 million people. Or the UK with 44,602 deaths, equating to 657 deaths for every 1 million people. Yet the
Australian government thinks it is necessary to forcefully lock people inside of buildings, Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly
it's ok because other
places such as "New York, China and in Europe" have taken similar measures.
Only a fearmonger could possibly think it's ok to equate some of the worst hit places on Earth with Australia which is one of the least affected
nations. The plan has shifted from flattening the curve to eliminating the curve altogether and I argue that is an absurd approach with no logical
basis in science or reality. New Zealand is in a very similar situation to Australia and their political climate is also very similar to that of
Australia. The New Zealand Prime Minister recently stated they have managed to fully eliminate Covid-19 from their country, and for the most part is
seems they have.
The return to freedom of movement, however, is not quite complete. With the pandemic continuing to rage elsewhere, the country’s borders are
still closed. Plans for a “travel bubble” with Australia are in the works, but moving slowly.
Ms. Ardern also announced that QR codes would be appearing wherever people gather. She asked businesses to remind people to scan the codes into the
government’s contact tracing app to make any future outbreak easier to track and isolate.
“This is a key new habit we’re asking all New Zealanders to adopt,” she said.
Ms. Ardern has been praised internationally for her approach to New Zealand’s outbreak, which was among the most stringent in the world.
New Zealand Lifts Lockdown as It Declares Virus
Eliminated, for Now
One really has to question why all these extreme measures such as using tracking apps are necessary in places which claim to have beaten Covid-19.
It's also clear that the moment New Zealand starts letting people in they will see another outbreak because they have almost no immunity at all. So
they have to decide between keeping their borders closed for as long as it takes to get a vaccine, which might not even happen, or to let people in
and allow their population to gain a herd immunity. The latter is the only sensible option, we can't expect to destroy Covid-19 any more than we can
destroy the flu.
We also cannot keep stopping and starting these lockdowns, that's something our Prime Minister in Australia recently said and I appreciate the
sentiment, but we seem to be doing the opposite of that in some places. Now lets look at the data for the UK, it was one of the worse hit nations in
the world, even more than Italy and even Sweden despite the fact Sweden didn't shut down businesses and allowed people to keep working while following
common sense social distancing rules. Also note it didn't jump up in recent weeks despite people packing beaches and protests going on across the
This would only seem possible if the UK has achieved herd immunity. Obviously I'm not saying we should have just let Covid-19 run rampant, but I think
it's quite clear now that the economic damage has probably resulted in more suffering than anything else at this point. I'm saying we should of
listened to the microbiologists and virology experts warning us that flattening the curve too much would only prolong the lockdowns by preventing herd
immunity to occur. I'm saying if we had of just taken reasonable common sense measures we'd have a whole lot less problems right now, instead we let
fear control us.
The data for New York state also shows a trend similar to that of the UK. From what I can see New York was the worst hit state in the United States,
which enabled the population to gain a herd immunity.
Contrast that with the combined data for the entire United States and we can see that there's an uptick corresponding to the easing of lockdown rules,
indicating some other states don't have herd immunity.
Italy was also hit harder than Sweden, and the data for Italy shows they are over the curve with no rise in cases which suggests they have gained a
herd immunity and will not suffer from a second wave:
The data for Sweden has some sort of weird oscillating action going on, but we can see the trend falling to almost nothing near the end, whereas it's
rising in other nations which lack herd immunity:
There doesn't seem to be reliable data for China, but the data for Hong Kong shows a trend very similar to Australia, suggesting the strict lockdowns
in Hong Kong prevented herd immunity from occurring:
