The Asymptomatic Spread Absurdity Underpinning Everything from Mask Mandates to Vaccine Passports
The notion that healthy people can spread a killer disease is the most insidious aspect of this pseudo-pandemic. It has kept children separated from aging grandparents; it has instilled fear of one’s neighbor in the minds of millions. It prolonged business closures; cancelled graduation ceremonies and sporting events; and ultimately resulted in preposterous mask mandates in every public space – from the grocery store to the park, from the daycare center to the university campus, depending, of course, on one’s nearness to those in positions of power infected with covid psychosis.
Now with the spread of the “delta variant,” mask mandates have returned, and in some locations, even in outdoor settings. The justification for these mandates: anyone can carry the dreaded virus and pass it on; everyone must be treated as sick until proven healthy. But the fact remains: healthy people do not make others ill.
Never at any point in this manufactured health crisis has asymptomatic spread played a significant role in viral transmission. Never. According to the best available data, it simply does not occur, or occurs so infrequently, as to delegitimize ever having to walk out one’s front door with a piece of cloth over one’s face, or restrict the breathing of a child for a seven-hour school day.
A memory holed moment occurred back in January of 2020: Dr. Fauci claimed during a press conference that asymptomatic individuals do not drive viral outbreaks. A rare moment of truth before he flipped the script on asymptomatic transmission.
Later, in June of 2020, Maria van Kerkhove of the WHO claimed that asymptomatic transmission, according to the available data, remained rare. But within twenty-four hours she had to walk back her statement. Perhaps the WHO got a Pharma phone call; maybe power-hungry governments wanted to keep the lockdown madness going, which relied heavily on the concept of healthy people as vectors of disease.
But then, in November of 2020, a study out of Wuhan ascertained what everyone knew prior to the onset of corona-craziness: those without clinical features of an illness do not spread diseases.
This study of almost all 10 million residents of Wuhan concluded that “there were no positive tests amongst 1,174 close contacts of asymptomatic cases.” One would think that this would have qualified as headline news. Even if just to refute the methodology of the study, if one were so inclined to try and disprove its results. But since the study proved what we all know, that only sick people make others sick, then the puppet masters of public health - and their media lackeys - had to ignore it. They couldn’t admit that asymptomatic transmission remained a specious hypothesis, because they had to keep healthy people locked in their homes before they could dangle the vaccine freedom carrot. Nevertheless, the Wuhan study definitely demonstrated that asymptomatic spread is a fantasy.
And if one were looking for more solid evidence, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a meta-analysis back in December of 2020 that detailed the likelihood of catching Covid from someone without symptoms in the household.
Above one can see the results of this meta-analysis in full. Secondary attack rates are the chances a person with Covid-19 will spread the virus to an exposed person. Overall, according to this meta-analysis, if someone has Covid, they spread the disease 16.6% of the time in the household. The subcategory of this analysis, however, details spread from those with symptoms and those without. Individuals with symptoms spread the disease 18% of the time; individuals without symptoms spread the disease 0.7% of the time. The latter number is infinitesimal. Consider that this analysis details household transmission. Imagine, now, the extreme improbability of catching the virus from a person without symptoms in the community setting.
Now stop imagining, because we have another study, from July 2021, addressing those odds.
Out of the 1557 people traced who met with asymptomatic individuals, only one person tested positive. This infected person had “mild symptoms.” Of those who came in contact with an asymptomatic case, 1556 out of 1557 developed no symptoms and never tested positive. The rate of transmission, therefore, was 0.06%.
It is not surprising that the one case who did test positive had only mild symptoms. A person cannot spread a significant amount of virus to cause a severe outcome of disease if they do not cough and sneeze. This should be common sense.
Above one sees clearly the studies dismantling asymptomatic spread. It is absolutely ludicrous that mask mandates have come back in much of the country, especially knowing that the masks themselves do not prevent the spread of covid, and that healthy people do not pose a threat to anyone.
Lastly, since asymptomatic spread is a farce, the policies implemented making people prove they have received one of the three dangerous Covid vaccines to frequent establishments, or attend college, for instance, must be abandoned. Besides the fact that the vaccines have already failed (get ready for those boosters!), nobody who has an active illness is going out on the town or to the classroom. Certainly not in this day and age where people are terrified to cough and sneeze around other people, as if they were committing a heinous crime.
Additionally, if the vaccines worked, which they apparently do not, it would not matter if one found a sick person in their presence. Regardless, though, sick people continue to stay home, so we can take these inane masks off now, and drop the discriminatory vaccine passports.
Or we can live like this teacher, who definitely isn’t psychologically damaging her students by treating them like little diseased killers.
Society wouldn’t let that happen.
