New scientific data why CA must open schools & businesses now for health of all CA residents

flu kills similiar to COVID 19

Flu kills and we don’t lock up healthy people  in their homes to prevent flu.  Numbers support that COVID-19 kills very few people.   Millions infected and few die.

Now — not in weeks or months hence — CA must open the schools and businesses and do so for the overall  health and  general well being of all Ca residents and  citizens.    Social distancing and sheltering at home reduce people’s immune system and result in many  harmful secondary effects. So says Dr. Erickson of Kern County, CA.

You Tube has taken down the video by Dr. Erickson.   It is available on AIR.TV.  Below is what YouTube would allow posted.

Ask hard questions of your County Health officers.   How many people  have you  tested? How many positive for COVID-19?   What is the death rate?  Is the death rate similar to that of flu?  Why impose draconian measures for COVID-19 which has a similar death rate as flu?     Is this county seeing more domestic violence, more child abuse, more suicide?  Why is it OK to go to COSCO and mingle and not able to go to a pizza parlor or to church?     Why  does this county in CA lock up healthy people which reduces their   immune system and destroys their livelihoods?

Never before has USA locked the healthy in their homes and now is the  time to stop says Dr. Erickson, Kern County  California  MD who tests the majority of persons in  Kern County for Corona virus.

It’s time now  to open the schools, small businesses and put people who test negative back to work. Yes, test people.  And there is the capacity  in CA to test as many as need it.  Finger stick tests can give near immediate results.  Look at what Kern County has done.  All CA can do likewise.

Secondary effects — people not going to their  doctors because of fear contracting COVID-19  and  thereby not caring for serious medical conditions, child abuse, domestic abuse and suicide are all spiking.    These secondary effects   will harm society in ways that will affect many people’s lives for years to come.

Dr.Erickson’s conclusions:  COVID-19 similar to the common flu  infects  thousand  but  kills relatively few.      Repeat:   thousands are infected  from Corona virus from the virus but few die.   Every year 35- 60 thousand die from flu every year in the USA.   Yet we don’t lock healthy people in their home to prevent them from getting flu.

Dr. Erickson’s clinics test the majority of persons tested in Kern County, CA.

Dr. Erickson says that it’s time for healthy people to stop ‘sheltering in place’  and stop wearing masks as these measures  reduce the body’s  immune system. By touching hand to face and mouth people routinely take in bacteria which the body responds to and  over time these actions strengthen the overall  immune system.  People who clean all home surfaces and wear masks outside are reducing the ability of the body to take in bacteria and strengthen their immune systems.

What about the “expert” Dr. Fauchi who predicted millions would die based on his theoretical models?   Dr. Fauchi, an academic, and has not seen a real patient in  20 years.  Dr. Fauchi’s models are theoretical models — not  based on actual  hard data.    Now we have the data.   And the data says clearly it’s time now  to open the schools and open small businesses. Let people who test negative to go back to work.  Let those without symptoms go back to work.  Yes, those with underlying medical conditions especially respiratory ones  many need to wear masks and gloves.  Not the general public.

Kern County data:   Dr. Erickson tested 5,213 with 313 positive for COVID-19.   6.5% of the population tested.  These numbers are similar to flu:  widespread infection and few deaths. 

In California, there have been 280K tested of a population of 35 million with a 12% positive rate.  In CA the possibility of dying from the virus is 0.03.  97% of persons in CA recover without any long term problems.   Kern County CA  has a 6.5 percent and CA has a 12.5 percent rate of infection.

As the prevalence rate goes u the death rate gets smaller and smaller.  Millions cases and a small number of deaths is the overall pattern.  

Dr. Erickson examined the hard numbers for New York state, Spain, Norway and Sweden.  The same pattern prevailed.   In New York state, 39% of those tested were positive for COVID-19 with a 92% recovery rate and a 0.1% chance of dying.   In Spain — which is #2 in the race for most cases — 940,000 were tested with a 22% rate of positive infections, with a o.05 death rate.  Sweden did not lock down and Norway did.  They had similar patterns.

Why do three times as many people die in USA states run by Democrats than Republicans?

Chronovirus.   Life or death depends on which USA state you live in ?  That’s what the  ‘data’ suggest.

So  what does it matter if  you live in a a  ‘red’ Republican USA state compared with  a ‘blue’ Democrat state?   Data suggests that where you live will affect whether you live or die from the chronovirus.

You are three times more likely to die from chronovirus if you live in a USA state run by Democrats than if you live in a USA state run by Republicans.  That is what the data say.  Why?
