Default They are just making shit up now...

The fear mongering is getting pathetic and blatant but people are still falling for it.

Since July 1st (almost 3 months) there have been 647 deaths due to Covid in ALL OF CANADA, a country with a population of about 38 million people.

For the month of September the Canada wide average so far is 5 deaths per day. FIVE.

There are literally more people being shot daily in the city of Toronto alone than are dying of Covid nationally. Let that sink in.

And some schmuck on the news this morning reported that if we continue without further restrictions we will have 16,000 more deaths by January 1, 2021.

WHAT?

The overall death toll so far is 9,262, with 8,612 of those deaths occurring between March and June.

So how are going to instantly go from about 5 deaths per day to nearly 200 deaths per day?

Is the general public this stupid? Really?

The politicians are still using stupid phrases like "flatten the curve". The curve is ****ing flat and has been for months.

To answer your question, yes, the general public is that stupid.

And stupid people don't seem to realize that, that is how governments seize total control. We are in perilous times.

A little more analysis:

In order to have 16,000 deaths by the end of the year we would need sustained daily deaths of 200 every single day from now until the end of the year.

So far we have hit 200 or greater deaths in a single day exactly twice: On May 1st (207) and May 31st (222).

During the peak, from March 15 through June 30 that average daily death rate was 112.

So we went from a peak of 112 per day to a current average of 5 per day. Now they're trying to fear monger that suddenly we're going to spike to 200 per day every day for the rest of the year unless they start locking shit down again.

Mother****ers!

Few also realize that there is absolutely NO WAY to substantiate the number of cases. If any individual state wants to say there was a spike of 10,000 cases, they can do it arbitrarily without any supporting information.

This is what control and over reach looks like. The worst part is the KOOL-AID guzzlers that believe it all.

They have ramped up testing to almost 40,000 per day, and they're seeing tons of positives in asymptomatic people. So either the tests are giving false positives or the virus is not as dangerous as we were lead to believe because people are testing positive but they're not even sick.

So they are taking this new testing data and projecting insane results.

In all of Canada right now there are 97 people in ICU due to covid.

And they keep spewing this crap about over-running the hospitals.

97 critical patients NATIONWIDE. More than half are in Ontario and Quebec. Many provinces (more than half) have no one in hospital at all.

So what the ****?

If the media didn't pick sides, America might still be ok. However, they have picked sides, and have totally stoked racism, divide on every level, etc. They are no longer impartial, and should be held accountable for misinformation.
