The end of the U.S. federal government’s restrictive COVID measures may be in sight. On January 30, 2023, a date that will be remembered as a turning point in history, the start of the unwinding of these measures began.
This marks the end of three years of response to the COVID crisis government, which was implemented in late January 2020.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the world, with 6,812,798 cumulative deaths reported by the World Health Organization as of January 31, 2023. However, when compared to the 1918 H1N1 epidemic, which resulted in over 50 million deaths worldwide, the COVID-19 pandemic seems less severe.
In terms of raw cumulative mortality, the 1918 H1N1 outbreak was seven times deadlier than COVID-19, but when adjusted for population, the 1918 H1N1 outbreak resulted in a 2.7% mortality rate, compared to a 0.087% mortality rate for COVID-19.
While the lower mortality rate of COVID-19 can be attributed to modern medical countermeasures such as vaccines and antiviral drugs, their performance has been questionable both in terms of efficacy and safety. In addition, access to these treatments is not always equal and may not be directly correlated with their deployment, which can result in uneven distribution of COVID-19-related deaths.
Furthermore, the incentives to overcount morbidity and mortality in some “first world” economies, such as the United States and other variables can make it difficult to accurately assess the aggregate mortality or case/infection fatality rate of COVID-19.
The fear-mongering tactics used to spread COVID-19 panic across the world have now been exposed as unjustified and excessive. The consequences of these actions, including the devastating impact on global economies and the exploitation of the crisis to push forward the “Great Reset” agenda, cannot be justified as a legitimate response to a public health issue.
Despite the ongoing efforts of organizations like the World Health Organization and its director, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, to prolong the crisis, the U.S. government has finally taken steps to restore the constitutional rights and freedoms that were suspended during the pandemic. What has led to this change of course?
The answer is simple: the recent shift in political power in the U.S. The election of November 2022 resulted in the Republican party gaining control of the House of Representatives, leading to two significant legislative actions – the Pandemic is Over Act and the Relating to a National Emergency declared by the President.
The White House acknowledged the role of these two houses of representatives’ legislative actions in the recent change of course in their January 30, 2023 “Statement of Administration Policy.” This is exactly what Robert F. Kennedy Jr. predicted in his fiery speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on January 23, 2022, which was subsequently condemned as antisemitic by the U.S. media. We encourage you to watch the speech and make your own informed judgment.
