CDC inexplicably deletes and changes another metric, after disingenuously promising improved transparency.

The NY Times has published a graphic with 4 separate graphs on it daily, since close to the start of the pandemic.  It received all the information in the graphs (and probably the graphics themselves) from the CDC.

The graphs provided the number of cases, ordinary hospitalizations, tests performed and deaths.

Months ago, a useful metric was added:  ICU admissions, which helps define the severity of the current variant.

The third graph in the set showed the number of tests performed daily.  This was useful information, because the number of positive cases was usually directly related, to an extent, to the number of tests.  One could see that by testing more, you upped the number of cases.  When tests were easily available, more tests were done.  When test centers closed, the would be fewer cases reported.

Well, the number of tests performed daily is gone.  Now we have a different graph, which is % positivity on tests.

This is also useful information, but should not have supplanted the number of tests performed.  It would have complemented the number of tests performed.

% positivity essentially tracks the case waves, while the number of tests done suggests to what extent test availability influences the number of cases.

These graphs are particularly important because they encompass the period of time since the start of the pandemic, allowing clear comparisons with other dates since the start of the pandemic.

Now that CDC admitted it has neither been nimble nor transparent with its data and analyses, and claims it will now do better, why have CDC and the Times removed a crucial metric that allowed us to better understand each COVID wave and variant?

'Lawsuits Coming For Entities That Don't Change COVID Mandates After CDC Update: Lawyer'

Entities with COVID-19 vaccine mandates that don’t pay heed to the new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance will face lawsuits, a civil liberties lawyer says.
“We don’t have a new lawsuit in the works yet. But if we see that colleges and universities and public employers are not responding to the new CDC guidance the way that they should be, then we would certainly tee up a new lawsuit,” Mark Chenoweth, president and general counsel at the New Civil Liberties Alliance, told The Epoch Times.

Is the US Military Leadership in Trouble over Vax Mandates?
(DoD) COVID-19 Violations
August 11, 2022 Brian Ward

To DoD Commanders, Elected Leaders, and State Attorneys Generals.

Military commanders are at risk of prosecution under the Uniform Code of Military
Justice, as well as federal, state, and foreign laws for penalizing service members who
refuse to volunteer for COVID-19 experimental substances. Civilian-appointed
authorities are engaging in significant abuse of powers by refusing to fulfill the fiduciary
responsibilities of their office to ensure federal statutes and military regulations are
followed by military departments regarding COVID-19 experimental substances.
The Department of Defense can not produce a single statute exempting them from
DoDI 6200.02 requirements to secure a service member’s informed consent involving
COVID-19 substances without the written authorization of the Commander in Chief.
Let us lay out the facts to back up these claims so that authorities may take appropriate
action to remedy the injustice perpetrated against our men and women in uniform.

Remdesivir for 5 or 10 Days in Patients with Severe Covid-19
2020 May 27 :

In patients with severe Covid-19 not requiring mechanical ventilation, our trial did not show a significant difference between a 5-day course and a 10-day course of remdesivir. With no placebo control, however, the magnitude of benefit cannot be determined. Funded by Gilead Sciences GS-US-540-5773 number, NCT04292899.

The nurse says treatment the hospital often gives to Covid patients is Remdesivir and puts the patients on ventilators.
Remdesivir has its own serious adverse effects, and ventilators are known killers of Covid patients.
When asked about ivermectin, hospitals refuse to use it even if a doctor prescribes it to a patient.
For hospitals, it's the Big Pharma protocol on life.
Contrast that with India's successful widespread use of ivermectin to control Covid.

COVID-19 patients can refuse to be treated with the toxic drug remdesivir. They can also refuse to be put on a ventilator under any situation or circumstance.

How is it possible that the United States that we still lead the world in COVID-19 deaths?

Trump’s and Anthony Fauci’s death protocol in hospitals using a drug called remdesivir that they knew would kill either a quarter to 30 percent of all people he gave the drug to in hospitals in five to 10 days.

Trump and Fauci are most likely directly responsible for getting hospitals all over the country to use remdesivir even though other expert medical practitioners have advised against it. Even the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has put out alerts warning healthcare professionals and providers of the potential risks associated with remdesivir.

In a warning published early last year, the FDA stated that remdesivir could cause liver injury, allergic reactions, sudden changes in blood pressure and heart rate, low blood oxygen level, fever, shortness of breath, wheezing, swelling around the lips and eyes, nausea, sweating and shivering.

When remdesivir is taken with other drugs as part of hospital COVID-19 treatment protocols, the chances of the above-mentioned side effects occurring goes up, and around a quarter of the people who keep taking remdesivir ended up dead.

Santilli even noted that Fauci was able to silence all opposition to remdesivir by claiming that people who are criticizing the drug are “challenging the science.”

Fauci knew remdesivir was dangerous from the very beginning

Ardis has been warning the world about the dangers of remdesivir since early 2020, when he spoke at a public hearing warning about the number of people who will die after being given remdesivir as part of hospital COVID-19 protocols.

Calculating the death rate of 25 to 30 percent of patients by using data taken from New York state Medicare-aged patients who were placed on a five-day remdesivir protocol.

In Brazil, Ardis noted that remdesivir is the only drug being used in hospitals. Because of this, Brazil’s total COVID-19 death count is second only to the United States at over 600,000.
