WHO (Accidentally) Confirms Covid is No More Dangerous Than Flu

By Kit Knightly | OffGuardian | October 8, 2020

The World Health Organization has finally confirmed what we (and many experts and studies) have been saying for months – the coronavirus is no more deadly or dangerous than seasonal flu.

The WHO’s top brass made this announcement during a special session of the WHO’s 34-member executive board on Monday October 5th, it’s just nobody seemed to really understand it.

In fact, they didn’t seem to completely understand it themselves.

At the session, Dr Michael Ryan, the WHO’s Head of Emergencies revealed that they believe roughly 10% of the world has been infected with Sars-Cov-2. This is their “best estimate”, and a huge increase over the number of officially recognised cases (around 35 million).

Dr. Margaret Harris, a WHO spokeswoman, later confirmed the figure, stating it was based on the average results of all the broad seroprevalence studies done around the world.

As much as the WHO were attempting to spin this as a bad thing – Dr Ryan even said it means “the vast majority of the world remains at risk.” – it’s actually good news. And confirms, once more, that the virus is nothing like as deadly as everyone predicted.

The global population is roughly 7.8 billion people, if 10% have been infected that is 780 million cases. The global death toll currently attributed to Sars-Cov-2 infections is 1,061,539.

That’s an infection fatality rate of roughly or 0.14%. Right in line with seasonal flu and the predictions of many experts from all around the world.

0.14% is over 24 times LOWER than the WHO’s “provisional figure” of 3.4% back in March. This figure was used in the models which were used to justify lockdowns and other draconian policies.

In fact, given the over-reporting of alleged Covid deaths, the IFR is likely even lower than 0.14%, and could show Covid to be much less dangerous than flu.

None of the mainstream press picked up on this. Though many outlets reported Dr Ryan’s words, they all attempted to make it a scary headline and spread more panic.

Apparently neither they, nor the WHO, were capable of doing the simple maths that shows us this is good news. And that the Covid sceptics have been right all along.

  1. The Corona Virus death toll has been boosted to make the virus look MUCH worse than it actually is…….It is Medical Fraud…….

  2. Noted with interest…but doesn’t Knightly or others recall the initial reports out of China and then the US/elsewhere anent acute respiratory trauma, instant-onset pneumonia, heart/blood clots, etc.? That didn’t/doesn’t seem to me to cause C-19 to be = to the seasonal flu…. and the extreme breadth and rate of transmission/spreadability? and the global-warpspeed-outbreaks phenomenon?

    (A friend has just returned from the Czech Republic — yes, the CR, hardly a bastion/hotspot of capitalism/”free” marketeering — after three weeks, now quarantined for 14 days. She reports that, in just the last two or three days of the three weeks, C-19 had resurfaced and was assuming alarming proportions and a crisis response across the CR. It is hard for me to accept that the CR is, e.g., at the mercy of “Big Pharma” to any iota of comparison to, e.g., US or UK, so it will take a lot of convincing for me to accept that C-19 is “no more dangerous than the flu.” My friend has no — zero — ax to grind, so WTF?)

    Will a safe, effective vaccine put all this sh*t to bed? BTW, isn’t it a fact that AIDS, e.g., has never been controlled via a developed vaccine? Isn’t it a real prospect that C-19 — and the next/C-20, and the next/C-21 — will never be treatable by a vaccine?…and that the residual/future side effects of C-19 will need to be “treated”/controlled via $100K pa “meds” a la Magic Johnson’s AIDS? Who can afford $100K pa?

    (What TF is “Sars-Cov-2”? Am I supposed to know without Mr. Knightly informing me as a matter of routine reporting/elucidation?)

    [“good news”??? Don’t show us the “bad news,” please, as seems to be Knightly’s inclination.]

    • In fact, the WHO and the Gates Foundation have a death grip on all but the largest and most independent nation’s health services. Not to mention the institutional establishment worldwide.

      This is the end result of allowing elite “philanthropy” to become indispensable across entire sectors.

      In reality Gates’ “generosity” always furthers accrual of his own wealth and power.

      • Thanks! I am the first to admit that I’m abysmally ignorant about the likes — and the intentions/schemes — of Gates, Soros, the Clinton Foundation…. Are they transnational monsters intent, as you observe, on “…further accrual of…wealth and power”?–and can no one rein them in?

        (Who “allowed” the “…elite “philanthropy” to become indispensable across entire sectors.”?–We, The People? … Are the IMF, World Bank, Catholicism, Zionist Jews, the Bilderberg Group et al jointly and severally in league with the “philanthropists” to take over the world…or have they already done so?)

        • I used to think that marijuana must be plainly harmful or at least one nation would not have outlawed it. Then I learned that this was one of the first achievements of the UN which basically strong armed the world to do so on behalf of the US.

          WHO works the same way.

          • Marijuana is clearly not as dangerous as Nicotine(cigarettes), and i have assumed that marijuana was demonised by the Anglo-American cigarette ’empire’, using the UN as its method.

  3. Where is the official web link to this WHO statement? People are not believing anything from a website called alethonews. Sorry but it’s like that….

    • Thanks. That’s a good question and I discovered a missing link that has been corrected now (see the first link).

      It must be noted that the WHO’s “confirmation” is inadvertent.

    • Toorop…If you visit the site “Global Research”, there is a plethora of information about Corona Virus. Corona has been blown out of proportion by our ‘Owners’ who tell us what to think and what to believe………We are lied to, every day, by the people we elect.

      “That’s an infection fatality rate of roughly or 0.14%. Right in line with seasonal flu and the predictions of many experts from all around the world”.

      We are deliberately being lied to, but why?

      “Who controls money, controls the World”……Henry Kissinger
