On Pandemics

96% of positive coronavirus cases were asymptomatic across 4 US state prisons, according to research by Reuters. I’d heard previously that asymptomatic persons numbered 50-70% of positive coronavirus cases. If most people who get the virus never show any symptoms, and if total case mortality is well below 1%, is COVID-19 really a pandemic? A better question: is something a “pandemic” just because some people who call themselves “government” say its a pandemic? Hardly. Governments make up names for things all the time, and then use those made up names to justify their authoritarian behavior. Such is Standard Operating Procedure for legal mafias the world over. And that’s today’s two cents.
