LibertyWorks analysed New York City’s Coronavirus data and came to a startling conclusion
🅑🅡🅔🅐🅚🅘🅝🅖 – 𝗖𝗢𝗩𝗜𝗗-𝟭𝟵 𝗳𝗮𝘁𝗮𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗮𝗹𝗺𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗰𝗲𝗿𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗹𝘆 𝘀𝗶𝗺𝗶𝗹𝗮𝗿 𝘁𝗼 𝗯𝗮𝗱 𝗳𝗹𝘂.
A random sampling of 7,500 New York City residents has provided the quality antibody data previously missing from Case Fatality Rate calculations. It indicates the virus has already infected approximately 25% of NYC’s 8.4M population of which around 12,400 people have died (so far).
𝗧𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝗻𝗱𝗶𝗰𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘀 𝗮 Infection 𝗙𝗮𝘁𝗮𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗥𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗰𝗶𝗿𝗰𝗮 𝟬.𝟲%, 𝗮 𝗳𝗿𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗰𝗶𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗳𝘆 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗹𝗼𝗰𝗸𝗱𝗼𝘄𝗻𝘀.
No question this virus is serious and there is no vaccine, but an IFR of 0.6% is a fraction of what was claimed and of what is (at time of writing) stated on the World Health Organisation’s own website. The sample data will have a margin of error, so will the antibody test kits and there is likely some selection bias. Despite these issues, the conclusion is still clear; the virus is nowhere near as dangerous as we were initially lead to believe.
Those most at risk are still the elderly and those with preexisting conditions. Only 2% of deaths in NYC involved people under 65 without a preexisting condition. 𝗡𝗼-𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗿 𝟭𝟳 𝗵𝗮𝘀 𝗱𝗶𝗲𝗱 𝗶𝗻 𝗡𝗬𝗖. None! If you’re young (say under 40) and healthy the flu is far more dangerous to your life than this virus.

What does it tell us? It tells us why the 5,000 Australian deaths expected under lockdown conditions hasn’t occurred. It tells us why Sweden, free from lockdown, has not experienced the catastrophic death rates expected by modellers. It tells us it’s time to wind back our lockdown nonsense. Time to get a collective grip on what we’re really dealing with here, to stop shrivelling and to stand up straight with our shoulders back. To acknowledge that the proposed cure will surely be worse than the disease and to do something about it now.
We can isolate the elderly and vulnerable while lifting restrictions on the majority. We can return to work and get the economy moving again. We can calmly consider strategies such as herd immunity which is now not too far away in NYC, Sweden and many other places.
Later, we can consider the price that needs to be paid by misinformed and slow-to-adapt medicrats and modellers who lead our gullible politicians to do the unthinkable; to deliberately trash the Australian economy and the livelihoods of millions. If a corporate CEO offered up the same models to hoodwink $500 billion in funds from investors they would probably be arrested by regulators. Are taxpayers really going to let these voodoo science pushers get away with it?
Perhaps we the public might also find time to pause and reflect on how we so quickly acquiesced and stepped aside to allow authoritarians permission to take our freedoms and livelihoods. Hopefully, we will conclude… never again.
