Scientists baffled at disappearance of influenza... but is it really gone, or just masked by Covid-19? | RT Op-ed

There has been a 98% plummet in flu infections this year, dispelling fears of a Covid and flu ‘twin-demic’ about which many had warned. Experts say we can thank masks and social distancing. But does this really add up? Although there is no mass testing for flu as there is for Covid, the WHO says that surveillance of data from around the world shows flu rates collapsing everywhere. Australia essentially ‘skipped’ their flu season this year, with not a single case reported since July (their peak). In fact, flu has more or less vanished throughout the Southern Hemisphere, and early indicators suggest it will follow suit north of the equator. What can explain this unprecedented decline?

Nursing home workers forced to make tough decisions as COVID-19 spread | Business Insider

Nursing homes have been especially hard-hit by the COVID-19 pandemic and workers in those facilities have been forced to make some difficult decisions on a professional and personal level. While nursing homes only make up 1% of the US population, according to the Associated Press, they account for a significantly larger percentage of COVID-19 infections compared to the overall population.  As of this writing, there are 8.3 million people infected with the coronavirus in the US, and over 222,000 have died. 

Why can’t we talk about the Great Barrington Declaration? | The Spectator

You probably haven’t heard of the Great Barrington Declaration. This is a petition started by three scientists on 4 October calling for governments to adopt a policy of ‘focused protection’ when it comes to Covid-19. They believe those most at risk should be offered protection — although it shouldn’t be mandatory — and those not at risk, which is pretty much everyone under 65 without an underlying health condition, should be encouraged to return to normal. In this way, the majority will get infected and then recover, gradually building up herd immunity, and that in turn will mean the elderly and the vulnerable no longer have to hide themselves away. According to these experts, this is the tried and tested way of managing the risk posed by a new infectious disease, dating back thousands of years.
