we can see this same relationship between NPI and all cause deaths.
this is devastating to the case for NPI.
this methodology is a little complex, so let me explain what i did.— el gato malo (@boriquagato) May 30, 2020
a few EU countries provide real day of death data. this lets us plot meaningful curves to show rate of disease change.
what struck me is how similar all the curves were.
everyone got the same shape. pic.twitter.com/bN0hILzoSl
i got good day of death data for spain.— el gato malo (@boriquagato) May 24, 2020
this is a great datapoint as they were one of the hardest locked-down countries on earth (~75% on google mobility vs -52% EU avg and -28% for netherlands)
the alignment in the time behavior changed also makes for a great comp. pic.twitter.com/jbG6p0njUq
one of the fascinating aspects of the response to covid is the manner in which all past knowledge and standing guidance regarding lockdowns and quarantines got tossed out the window and replaced with new, contradictory doctrine with no scientific backing. pic.twitter.com/EplwYQTmL6— el gato malo (@boriquagato) July 8, 2020
back in the halcyon days of 2019, before the great politicization of epidemiology turned up into down and down into sideways, the WHO performed a survey of randomized, controlled trials on masks— el gato malo (@boriquagato) September 28, 2020
1100 citations were winnowed to the 10 best for review.
masks looked ineffective. pic.twitter.com/A04MVVmXhu
this is from the study that CDC head robert redfield showcased the other night to "prove masks work"— el gato malo (@boriquagato) July 28, 2020
it it the epidemiological equivalent of doing a sun dance at 5.30 AM and claiming you made that ball of fire in the sky appear
it's assumptive, lacks a control, & proves nothing pic.twitter.com/yTdBa7UFit
CDC claims that masks stopped the spread of covid in kansas by comparing masked and non-masked counties.— el gato malo (@boriquagato) November 23, 2020
counterpoint: this was a cherry pick in terms of date and seasonality.
they ended the "study" aug 23.
then, covid season hit and the masks look to have made no difference. https://t.co/LgyjqPodOC pic.twitter.com/P2cfuZRtDs
the latest push for masks has been as "source protection"— el gato malo (@boriquagato) July 24, 2020
it's not about you, it's about being considerate & not spreading COV to others
it's a great PR soundbite and virtue signal, but is there any actual science behind it?
this study sheds real doubthttps://t.co/gAIlllFoWe
so we should treat the last couple weeks as incomplete.— el gato malo (@boriquagato) December 8, 2020
but the season pattern from these regions emerges clearly in the data.
this is not 3 waves in all locations, it's waves in multiple surges in different places being aggregated into a graph that looks like none of them. pic.twitter.com/NtaIFbgLKe
croatia is open. no lockdowns, no curfews, no mask laws.— el gato malo (@boriquagato) November 18, 2020
life there is normal. people are trying to claim this is causing a covid spike. it's not.
they look, gasp, just like every other country around them most of whom are locked down, masked, etc.
NPI's do nothing. pic.twitter.com/IxHDtf1tFv
A systematic review published 12/3/20 by the Oxford U Ctr for Evidence-Based Med has confirmed that C19 rtPCR testing patient sample cycle thresholds (Cts) >30 (mean from 6-studies) are associated with NEGATIVE viral cultures, i.e., are non-infectious https://t.co/t79dSHnHgn— Andrew Bostom (@andrewbostom) December 6, 2020
It took a Freedom of Information request but @Covid19DataUK acquired 2017-2019 averages for England hospitalizations.— Yinon Weiss (@yinonw) December 31, 2020
2020 had 18% fewer hospitalizations than prior years.
All around the world, using hospital data without context of prior years is just a fear generating lie. pic.twitter.com/DJDpqhIQuw

google has memory holed the great barrington declaration
not only have they wiped it from the top results, they have salted it with false claims about "climate denial"
it's pure, simple propaganda
here's bing (who plays it straight) pic.twitter.com/kTdhH8zXia
Funny there are those who think these migrant caravans were a FANTASTIC idea that's going to take the immigration issue away from you.— Brian Cates (@drawandstrike) November 26, 2018
Like several weeks watching a rampaging horde storm the fences & throw rocks at our border patrol agents & getting gassed = great optics!
