Dr. Anthony Fauci Describes COVID-19 as Seasonal Flu Before the Left Wing Media Narrative Changed his Mind

   Way back in March, 2020, before the left wing news media began hyping up COVID-19 to hysterical levels, Dr. Anthony Fauci co-wrote an editorial with then US CDC director, Dr. Robert Redfield and Dr. Clifford Lane that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine*.  The doctors stated that; “the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza or pandemic influenza rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS.”

   While the left wing news and CDC artificially and deliberately conflated and inflated death numbers to levels higher than they were in reality, the doctors were correct in their seasonal influenza comparison since the fatality rate of COVID-19 has now been pegged at just slightly higher than normal, seasonal flu.

   However, there’s big money to be made in the COVID-19 pandemic by PCR testing laboratories, state governments and hospitals feeding at the federal bailout trough, and even the media corporations who benefit from increased advertising revenue and website clicks.  So, the truth about COVID-19 being a relatively benign disease has been clouded and distorted by those groups to ensure an endless revenue stream of profits.

   The U.S. CDC has quietly admitted that only 6% of the total deaths attributed to COVID-19 actually died from COVID-19.  But, they had rewritten death certificate protocols last summer to create a situation where anyone who died of anything - but also had a positive PCR test for COVID-19 - would be listed as a COVID-19 death even if that respiratory virus had nothing to do with their death in the first place.

   These artificially inflated death numbers, along with grossly exaggerated PCR “positive” case numbers and the more dubious “probable” case numbers (where a doctor thinks their patient might have COVID, so records it as a COVID case) are now what are driving the pandemic and the government’s and media’s fear and hysteria campaign - not an actual virus.
