When this history of the coronavirus is written, I believe the American media will be featured as one of its leading villains…right after China.

The press continues to ignore positive coronavirus news, smears the effectiveness of Sweden’s herd immunity approach, and mask-shames those who chose not to wear cloth coverings.

Today’s topic demonstrating the panic=porn approach of the American media is the news related to the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine trial.

Volunteer in AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine trial dies in Brazil

A volunteer in AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine trial has died in Brazil, the country’s National Health Surveillance Agency said Wednesday.

The agency, Anvisa, said in a statement that it was formally notified of the death on Monday.

The vaccine candidate is being developed with the University of Oxford.

In a statement to NBC News, AstraZeneca said that the trial would continue.

“We cannot comment on individual cases in an ongoing trial of the Oxford vaccine as we adhere strictly to medical confidentiality and clinical trial regulations, but we can confirm that all required review processes have been followed,” the statement said. “All significant medical events are carefully assessed by trial investigators, an independent safety monitoring committee and the regulatory authorities. These assessments have not led to any concerns about continuation of the ongoing study.”

I saw this news prompted through social media, leading to even more fear related to the vaccination. It took some research on my part to determine that the patient…was given the placebo.

A volunteer in AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine trial in Brazil has died, Brazilian health authorities said Wednesday, triggering fresh alarms over the future of the Oxford program. But later reports noted that the death was in the placebo group and AstraZeneca issued word that there were no concerns about continuing the study.

The Brazilian health agency Anvisa said it had received data from an investigation into the issue, per a Reuters report. The report was then updated citing a Brazilian newspaper with unnamed sources saying that the volunteer was in the placebo arm of the trial.

And while a vaccine would be wonderful to have, the creation and distribution of effective therapeutics paired with early treatment may be just as important in turning back the pandemic. Another bit of news that the American press isn’t sharing is the substantial drop in COVID19 deaths.

Two new peer-reviewed studies are showing a sharp drop in mortality among hospitalized COVID-19 patients. The drop is seen in all groups, including older patients and those with underlying conditions, suggesting that physicians are getting better at helping patients survive their illness.

“We find that the death rate has gone down substantially,” says Leora Horwitz, a doctor who studies population health at New York University’s Grossman School of Medicine and an author on one of the studies, which looked at thousands of patients from March to August.

The study, which was of a single health system, finds that mortality has dropped among hospitalized patients by 18 percentage points since the pandemic began. Patients in the study had a 25.6% chance of dying at the start of the pandemic; they now have a 7.6% chance.

Here is something to consider: Legal Insurrection cannot share many of my coronavirus posts because I refute most of the “experts” by promoting the news from scientists and public health professionals that go against the fear-narrative.

It turns out that the Chinese have a significant presence on Facebook.

There are at least half a dozen “Chinese nationals who are working on censorship,” a former Facebook insider told me last week. “So at some point, they [Facebook bosses] thought, ‘Hey, we’re going to get them H-1B visas so they can do this work.’ ”

Additionally, The Federalist did a round-up of major media entities and their financial ties to China. They looked at The New York Times, The Washington Post, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, and Bloomberg. The money-influence power China has over these organizations is disturbing.

And as the press continues to promote pandemic panic, China’s economy booms.

Life for the Chinese is broadly back to normal, while here and throughout Europe the announcement of new restrictions is a daily occurrence.

In China, the IMF predicts the economy will have grown by 2 per cent by the year’s end. In Britain, our national income is likely to shrink by one tenth, with the U.S. and much of Europe also showing negative growth forecasts.

Indeed, China will be the only major economy to have the sought-after V-shaped recovery that Western economists spoke so optimistically of just a few short months ago.

If it is possible to win a war without firing a shot, China might have done it…with the help of the American press.
