New England Journal of Medicine: COVID-19 may be no more lethal than the common winter flu

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The medical experts are rallying against the Hype and affirming the COVID-19 is not a dangerous pandemic as the World Health Organization and every group funded by The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has been asserting.

The latest confirmation of this is a paper published yesterday in the prestigious medical journal, The New England Journal of Medicine, by Drs. Antony S. Fauci, H. Clifford Lane and Robert R. Redfield, entitled, COVID-19 — Navigating the Uncharted.

Dr. Fauci is not a nobody in the study of infectious diseases. Since 1984 he has been the director of the United States’ National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and was recently dubbed by the New York Times as “the leading expert on infectious diseases”.

Here is what Dr. Fauci et alia write in their summation:

On the basis of a case definition requiring a diagnosis of pneumonia, the currently reported case fatality rate is approximately 2%.4 In another article in the Journal, Guan et al.5 report mortality of 1.4% among 1099 patients with laboratory-confirmed Covid-19; these patients had a wide spectrum of disease severity. If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively.2

By the phrase, “a case study requiring a diagnosis of pneumonia”, they mean to say they have studied only those claimed victims of coronavirus who were diagnosed with pneumonia, that is, an infection of the lungs. They did this to rigorously exclude false positives, wherein a death would be claimed, but without serious symptoms of coronavirus infection.

Their reference to asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic, refers to those who tested positive for coronavirus but who shows no or nearly no symptoms of infection.

The conclusion of these experts is something that cannot be denied by all rational men. It is the ultimate vaccination against Corona Hype and Sentimental Derangement Syndrome which results from it when those infected are in the presence of a Corona Hype Denier.

FromRome.Info is grateful that one of the top experts has confirmed for our readers the validity of our editorial position on the Wuhan Virus’ much reduced lethality.

The National Institute, which Dr. Fauci oversees, is an entity of the U.S. Government and is not controlled by The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. That might explain why they have a different view of reality.

    1. How often do you pray for priests who die. Did you know that there are 23,000 Catholic priests in Italy, and that more than 200 of them die during each year? That is a big deal, but we are insensitive to it, until someone tries to exploit their deaths to advocate one world government. Only then should we pay attention to it. Most of them have bad health and are neglected by everyone around them.

      As for 60 priests dying. Did they die from corona virus? or with corona virus? The Italian National Institute of health has said that only 12% of those who are being claimed as victims of COVID-19 are listed to have died from corona virus. The others are listed as having died from something else.

      Other reports show that the test being used to identify someone as having coronavirus is only correct 50% of the time.

      These statistics mean, that of those 60 priest only 4 really died of coronavirus.

      Every death is a big deal, but in the perspective of an entire nation, I do not think we should be panicking over 4 deaths. Do you?

  1. Propaganda machine for them. He recently testified to the contrary. 10 times worse.

    “Though he recently wrote that the rate could be “considerably less than 1%,” he has also recently testified, in a House hearing, that the novel virus from China has a “mortality rate of ten times” that of seasonal flu. He put the latter at 0.1 percent, which would rate the new coronavirus at 1 percent.” – https://www.nationalreview.com/2020/03/coronavirus-fatality-rate-computing-difficult/

    He knows the truth though, that CoViD-19 = common cold/flu, so this could be a Freudian slip, or hiding the truth in plain sight.

    1. Your source has no citation to the alleged testimony, so without such citation, we all have to believe rather what he said in the Medical Journal, and not some blogger claiming he said something somewhere who does not give us the day, hour, place and words sated.

      1. War our Time, your first link proves he says the opposite. But it does not prove he said the opposite after he published the scholarly article, as her video does not show when she spoke with him. His paper was published on March 26.

        The second link you give also does not say when he spoke.

        My only point was that once the paper is published that is what you should pay attention to. In saying the death rate for winter flu is 0.1% is true in a sense (based on assumptions of infection), for the whole population, and for corona 1.0% in hospitals is also true (in some hospitals who are more rigorous than others, but still perhaps not very rigorous), but in hospitals and in the whole population is not the same, and I agree he should be more clear when speaking at all times, but he may not think his audience can understand that, since you yourself seem not to understand that when he said what he said is just as important as what he said,

        As a professional he has to speak to reported statistics as they are reported not according to his opinions based on his research which he has not yet reported or published. And he may be deliberately mispeaking on videos with youtube pop stars. I do not deny that. But insulting me, your host at this site, is beyond all sense of propriety.
