It’s finally been confirmed by, of all people, Rachelle Walensky, Director of the CDC:
Over 75% of Americans who have died from COVID-19 have had at least 4 or more comorbidities. This means at least 75% of Americans who died of COVID-19 actually were very sick, high-risk, vulnerable, “with one foot out the door” as Bill O’Reilly so eloquently stated and was lambasted for, and actually died with the virus, not from it. That’s a major distinction with and from – the economy was shut down because of these two sentiments:
Everyone who contracted it had a legitimate risk of dying from it
The asymptomatic carried and contracted it, therefore no one knew who had it
The CDC confirming the overwhelming majority of people who died of COVID-19 were already very sick is a really big deal. It means there should have never been any umbrella mitigation measures like mask mandates, social distancing, lockdowns or “essential” and “non essential” businesses. It also means the focus from the start of the pandemic should have been on those who are vulnerable or considered “high risk”. It’s the CDC essentially taking responsibility for unjustly ruining the lives and businesses of millions of Americans.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the father of the modern day American lockdown, knew this. He was recommended to focus on and protect only the high-risk and not shut down the economy for everyone in emails from other Virologists in February 2020 released in late May of 2021 via the Freedom Of Information Act. These requests were completely ignored.
Few have been effected more adversely by pandemic mitigation measures than small business owners. Early in the pandemic small business owners were deemed “Non essential” while Titans like Amazon were deemed “essential” and not just continued to grow but literally exploded at their expense. Many of these same business owners applied and qualified for Economic Injury Disaster Loans and are yet to receive them. An EIDL is reserved for any business whose revenue went down more than 30% from 2019-2020 because of the pandemic. The government is said to be still sitting on $30 billion + in funds earmarked for these small businesses.
Now that small business owners know their operations were severely limited by the government under false pretenses, and that same government isn’t providing them with the help they desperately need, what’s their next move?
