    This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge. 

    Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, Professor Emeritus of Medical Microbiology at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, released a now-viral video in which he calmly explained why nationwide lockdowns are “collective suicide”.

    Now he has written an open letter to Chancellor Angela Merkel and it is fantastic…


    A medical expert with integrity asks the German Chancellor five devastating questions about her mindless coronavirus lockdown…

    Open Letter

    Dear Chancellor,

    As Emeritus of the Johannes-Gutenberg-University in Mainz and longtime director of the Institute for Medical Microbiology, I feel obliged to critically question the far-reaching restrictions on public life that we are currently taking on ourselves in order to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

    It is expressly not my intention to play down the dangers of the virus or to spread a political message. However, I feel it is my duty to make a scientific contribution to putting the current data and facts into perspective – and, in addition, to ask questions that are in danger of being lost in the heated debate.

    The reason for my concern lies above all in the truly unforeseeable socio-economic consequences of the drastic containment measures which are currently being applied in large parts of Europe and which are also already being practiced on a large scale in Germany.

    My wish is to discuss critically – and with the necessary foresight – the advantages and disadvantages of restricting public life and the resulting long-term effects.

    To this end, I am confronted with five questions which have not been answered sufficiently so far, but which are indispensable for a balanced analysis.

    I would like to ask you to comment quickly and, at the same time, appeal to the Federal Government to develop strategies that effectively protect risk groups without restricting public life across the board and sow the seeds for an even more intensive polarization of society than is already taking place.

    With the utmost respect,

    Prof. em. Dr. med. Sucharit Bhakdi

    1. Statistics

    In infectiology – founded by Robert Koch himself – a traditional distinction is made between infection and disease. An illness requires a clinical manifestation. Therefore, only patients with symptoms such as fever or cough should be included in the statistics as new cases.

    In other words, a new infection – as measured by the COVID-19 test – does not necessarily mean that we are dealing with a newly ill patient who needs a hospital bed. However, it is currently assumed that five percent of all infected people become seriously ill and require ventilation. Projections based on this estimate suggest that the healthcare system could be overburdened.

    My question:

    Did the projections make a distinction between symptom-free infected people and actual, sick patients – i.e. people who develop symptoms.

    2. Dangerousness

    A number of coronaviruses have been circulating for a long time – largely unnoticed by the media.  If it should turn out that the COVID-19 virus should not be ascribed a significantly higher risk potential than the already circulating corona viruses, all countermeasures would obviously become unnecessary.

    The internationally recognized International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents will soon publish a paper that addresses exactly this question. Preliminary results of the study can already be seen today and lead to the conclusion that the new virus is NOT different from traditional corona viruses in terms of dangerousness. The authors express this in the title of their paper „SARS-CoV-2: Fear versus Data“.

    My question:

    How does the current workload of intensive care units with patients with diagnosed COVID-19 compare to other coronavirus infections, and to what extent will this data be taken into account in further decision-making by the federal government? In addition: Has the above study been taken into account in the planning so far?  Here too, of course, „diagnosed“ means that the virus plays a decisive role in the patient’s state of illness, and not that previous illnesses play a greater role.

    3. Dissemination

    According to a report in the Süddeutsche Zeitung, not even the much-cited Robert Koch Institute knows exactly how much is tested for COVID-19. It is a fact, however, that a rapid increase in the number of cases has recently been observed in Germany as the volume of tests increases.

    It is therefore reasonable to suspect that the virus has already spread unnoticed in the healthy population. This would have two consequences: firstly, it would mean that the official death rate – on 26 March 2020, for example, there were 206 deaths from around 37,300 infections, or 0.55 percent – is too high; and secondly, it would mean that it would hardly be possible to prevent the virus from spreading in the healthy population.

    My question:

    Has there already been a random sample of the healthy general population to validate the real spread of the virus, or is this planned in the near future?

    4. Mortality

    The fear of a rise in the death rate in Germany (currently 0.55 percent) is currently the subject of particularly intense media attention. Many people are worried that it could shoot up like in Italy (10 percent) and Spain (7 percent) if action is not taken in time.

    At the same time, the mistake is being made worldwide to report virus-related deaths as soon as it is established that the virus was present at the time of death – regardless of other factors. This violates a basic principle of infectiology: only when it is certain that an agent has played a significant role in the disease or death may a diagnosis be made. The Association of the Scientific Medical Societies of Germany expressly writes in its guidelines: „In addition to the cause of death, a causal chain must be stated, with the corresponding underlying disease in third place on the death certificate. Occasionally, four-linked causal chains must also be stated.“

    At present there is no official information on whether, at least in retrospect, more critical analyses of medical records have been undertaken to determine how many deaths were actually caused by the virus.

    My question:

    Has Germany simply followed this trend of a COVID-19 general suspicion? And: is it intended to continue this categorisation uncritically as in other countries? How, then, is a distinction to be made between genuine corona-related deaths and accidental virus presence at the time of death?

    5. Comparability

    The appalling situation in Italy is repeatedly used as a reference scenario. However, the true role of the virus in that country is completely unclear for many reasons – not only because points 3 and 4 above also apply here, but also because exceptional external factors exist which make these regions particularly vulnerable.

    One of these factors is the increased air pollution in the north of Italy. According to WHO estimates, this situation, even without the virus, led to over 8,000 additional deaths per year in 2006 in the 13 largest cities in Italy alone. [7] The situation has not changed significantly since then. [8] Finally, it has also been shown that air pollution greatly increases the risk of viral lung diseases in very young and elderly people. [9]

    Moreover, 27.4 percent of the particularly vulnerable population in this country live with young people, and in Spain as many as 33.5 percent. In Germany, the figure is only seven percent [10]. In addition, according to Prof. Dr. Reinhard Busse, head of the Department of Management in Health Care at the TU Berlin, Germany is significantly better equipped than Italy in terms of intensive care units – by a factor of about 2.5 [11].

    My question:

    What efforts are being made to make the population aware of these elementary differences and to make people understand that scenarios like those in Italy or Spain are not realistic here?

      1. That “doctor” should get covid himself to find out WHY these lockdowns are in place! A friend of mine has it, but because she got chills instead of fever, they refuse to test her… Covid is the only disease with the symptom of “feels like shards of glass inside your lungs”, which she has… And, even though she’s young (late 20’s) and VERY healthy, she nearly called 911 THREE TIMES due to not being able to breathe!

        This is NOT a normal disease, it is an EXCEPTIONAL one, and if we allow it to just “flow freely” without having lockdowns in place, the healthcare system AND the workforce will be overloaded to the point of breaking, and this overload will kill the economy faster than the slump being experienced right now. In the meantime, stay home, stay safe, and enjoy the low gas prices 😉

        • When EBOLA caused people to bleed-out from every orifice, our nation did not shut down. When under attack from WWll enemies, our country remained relatively free (except certain persecuted populations).

          The STATISTICAL ANALYSIS has been flawed. Some politicians & medical professionals advising them have used this crisis to infringe on BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS. Critical thinking requires a look at the process used to jump-to-those-confusions.

        • You can call it the new normal all you like – but the reality is never this sanitized. The real problem we face today is not a virus. The greater problem is that people have failed to engage in critical thinking due to the fear promoted by some media and government officials. Just because we’re fighting an unseen enemy in the form of a virus doesn’t mean we have to relinquish every shred of our humanity, our common sense, or our freedoms to a nanny state that thinks it can do a better job of keeping us safe.

        • Have you ever noticed the ruins of high civilizations, and there are no cut-and-dry explanations for why they failed.

          What if they just quit trying, of their own, free will.

          Wouldn’t it be a waste?

        • He lost me when he failed to mention Liberty.

          Listen, Phoenix, push the anti malaria drugs you can make from home, the G2 Church had posted DIY production instructions via IW only last month. Those guys make a thousand bottles of this a day in their spare time.

          If you trade liberty for security, you will end up with neither.

        • So your friend has Covid do they? You even admit in your post that your friend hasn’t been tested but you are absolutely convinced that it must be coronavirus. I got news for you genius. The economy is already being killed and your precious little lock downs that you love so much are what is doing it. This thing is a joke. It has a death rate of less than 1%. Did you know that over 83,000 people died from flu and pneumona in 2019/2020? Were you begging for lock downs over that? Was the economy shutdown over that? Was everybody wearing masks over that? People like you are why this country is such a mess. Nobody looks at the data and nobody asks questions. They just believe whatever the government and the media tells them. Just because someone is sick doesn’t automatically mean that it’s some exotic new virus sweeping the globe. You really need to wake up to how you are being manipulated.

          Read and learn something.

      2. This whole thing is BULLSH*T! It is nothing more than a plandemic to steal $$ and add draconian laws. Working well too! Stupid sheep will do whatever they are told. Gawd I thought someone would question this BS! There are a bunch of vids of empty hospitals and military doing nothing but standing around. So much in fact that someone started a movement to go out and film your local hospitals and report it to prove it. Where I live it is pretty normal, people out shopping and dining at drive throughs etc. Traffic is normal and most factories still open. This shit is a SCAM! They even took down the plexiglass shield at the grocery stores. No masks no nothin and everyone is FINE! You have been arse raped for trillions thanks to the masses of retarded sheep! This is a worse arse reaming than the 911 scam! And you wonder why I hate humanity so much? FOOOOOK!

        • This is a coup by the left to try and remove Trump. They are such evil people that they will destroy the world to try and win an election.

      3. I’m not saying the bioattack isn’t real but it is overplayed 10,000%! Look into it! Or just keep watching TV and drooling over your toilet paper hoard you dummfook knuckledraggers…

        • Sure, there’s a virus, and people are getting sick, but it is so overhyped that it defies rational thinking. It is state-sponsored scaremongering, and unfortunately, much of the population don’t see it, or are just going along with it.
          The Navy’s hospital ship that was sent to NYC (to alleviate the vast crowds of people desperately needing immediate treatment !?) as of 8:00 PM this evening only had three (3) patients, apparently none with life threatening conditions. There are numerous videos on-line of hospitals and medical centers in the greater NY metro area showing no indication of a public medical emergency. The governor of NY (I can’t bring myself to say his wretched name) said he needed 30,000 ventilators immediately, that people were dying because they didn’t have ventilators. They had about 1000 on-hand, and not all of them were being used. The Fed. gov’t sent 4400 more of them, the governor promptly warehoused them.
          I read it appears many people who unfortunately passed away were “inadvertently” declared due to this virus, but the actual causes(s) were something else. The overwhelming were aged, with other previously existing medical conditions.
          The MSM (propaganda arm of the State) features daily virus related stories as dire and grim as they can. It cannot all be substantiated because the news outlets frequently contradict each other. I believe the rate of infection and its magnitude of this virus has been exaggerated.
          You can bet the State is measuring all kinds of metrics during this “crisis” to better improve their control techniques for the next crisis. After all, they don’t let a crisis (real or perceived) go to waste.
          There is almost no indication of the virus where I live, no accompanying panic, it’s basically business as usual.

      4. When I see the “mortality rate” which is a meaningless figure, instead of the Case Fatality Rate for those who have tested positive, then I know a person is trying to deceive people into thinking this is mild (whatever their reasoning). I sort of suspect that even some virologists are utterly attached to their Stock Portfolios and wealth, and this is devastating to them more than anything.

      5. Apparently there are several strains of the Wuhan Virus. It was determined early on there was a SARS strain, a MERs strain and an HIV strain (lending credibility to a lab creation) and there appears to have been further manipulation to lessen the intensity of illness after being seeded in America. Much also depends on “Viral load” with the worse illness in a 5G environment (China & Italy) which adversely effects human health in of itself. Most infections are of the milder varieties. The most severe infections with the ground glass lung appearance on CT scan, seems related to the SARS version. When all is said and done, and the dust settles, those who launched this upon humanity need to be brought to justice.

      6. Theory of Rent —
        “Did you know that the first Matrix was designed to be a perfect human world? Where none suffered, where everyone would be happy. It was a disaster. No one would accept the program. Entire crops were lost. Some believed we lacked the programming language to describe your perfect world. But I believe that, as a species, human beings define their reality through suffering and misery. The perfect world was a dream that your primitive cerebrum kept trying to wake up from. Which is why the Matrix was redesigned to this: the peak of your civilization.”

        In times of war, physical hardship, and coarse industrialization, people revert to frivolity and fairy things. In times of abundance, they become morbid. It’s a human need. You are reasoning with doomsday cultists, in a spirit of collective suicide, trying to tame poison Kool Aid drinkers with statistics.

        If I could go back in time, to the point at which I was radicalized by a highschool social studies project, I would give myself the lottery numbers.

      7. Seriously, what lockdowns you clowns? No one pays attention to them anyway! Some things do have to close to stop the spread and if you don’t get it then your a dumb@ss

      8. My mother works at a hospital here in dallas an it is nearly empty, so much that she has been sent home early many times during the week….. this is nothing but fearmongering….

      9. There are serious hotspots for sure and that’s NOT fake news and when you see videos of crazy hospital scenes (on TV and on the net) I think most people would be afraid. I’m still calm and objective but my wife is terrified and I think I might end up strangling her because I’m sick of the smell of fuggin Clorox 24/7. Most old time preppers can see what’s really going on but we’re just a very small island in a sea of sheeple and we can’t say anything to anyone without being ridiculed or shouted down sooo I keep my mouth shut now and fine tune my bug out plans.

      10. So it isn’t the highly contagious and fatal SARS virus wrapped in EBOLA and AIDS envelopes that you claimed it to be Tyler? But more like spider eggs in bubble yum?

      11. 600,00 U.S. citizens die in automobile accidents annually. If “our” government decides to revoke our priviledge to own and operate a motor vehicle in order to “keep us safe” how many people will shoot the repo man, and how many will simply adjust to “the new normal”?

        We are being prepped for agenda 2030. The goal is to get us into crowded cities with highrise apartments (projects), using bicycles and public transportation, unable to use highways between cities because we have no cars and because only feds, elites, and the chosen few will have privileges.

        The climate change scam, the GMO crap food, the fast food garbage, the sugary acidic soft drinks, the fear mongering about saturated fat and eating beef, the proliferation of horrible dangerous drugs both legal and otherwise that kill for real; it’s all part of the program to get the public so weak, so intimidated, so depressed and degenerate that they can’t muster up the courage to take life by the horns, head on, and tell whatever
        so called authority stands in their way to kiss it and go to hell.
