Academics Are Now Saying COVID Data Is Being “Exaggerated”

500 academics signed onto a letter saying that Chinese Coronavirus data is being “exaggerated”.

The Daily Mail:

Official data is ‘exaggerating’ the risk of Covid-19 and talk of a second wave is ‘misleading’, nearly 500 academics told Boris Johnson in open letter attacking lockdown.

The doctors and scientists said the Government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has become ‘disproportionate’ and that mass testing has distorted the risk of the virus.

They said tests are likely to be producing high numbers of ‘false positive’ results and the Government must do more to put infection and death rates within the context of normal seasonal rates.

Here is a little bit from the letter:

The letter reads: ‘The management of the crisis has become disproportionate and is now causing more harm than good.

‘We urge policy-makers to remember that this pandemic, like all pandemics, will eventually pass but the social and psychological damage that it is causing risks becoming permanent.

‘After the initial justifiable response to Covid-19, the evidence base now shows a different picture.

‘The problem of functional false positive rates has still not been addressed and particularly in the context of low prevalence of disease whereby false positives are likely to exceed true positives substantially and moreover correlate poorly with the person being infectious.

As The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra pointed out that it is stunning that this happens just one day after the Fake News industrial complex called the race for Joe Biden.

Of course, this is what we have been saying since day 1. While the left and the Mainstream Press pushed a strong narrative of fear we were saying look at the data.

This is also exactly what President Trump was saying. He never said the virus didn’t exist. He never said that the virus wasn’t dangerous. All he said was that the Media and the Democrats were using it to play politics. He said that the data was being misread to give the worst possible scenario.
