YouTube Yanks Anti-Lockdown Video By 2 Doctors

Two California doctors with advanced degrees in microbiology made a video about the realities of the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak in the United States. The pair agreed that the national response, while appropriate at first when we had little information, has proven to be overblown and it’s time for Americans to get back to work.

The video was an important message from Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi who co-own Accelerated Urgent Care in Bakersfield, California. Both have been students of microbiology for 20 years.

The two medical experts tested more than 5,200 patients and used data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to determine that the actual fatality rate of COVID-19 is less than one-tenth of 1 percent – similar to seasonal flu.

California’s case fatality rate worked out to 0.03 percent (three-tenths of 1 percent)

Knowing this, the disease experts called for an end to the quasi-quarantine that is crippling the national economy and driving people to bankruptcy:

“Do we need to still shelter in place? Our answer is emphatically no.”

WHO doesn’t want anyone to know that none of us has to wait for a Big Pharma vaccine to develop an immunity to COVID-19. Sweden shocked the world by refusing to close schools and businesses to achieve community immunity rapidly. Stockholm is expected to reach herd immunity in May, a mere two months after U.S. President Donald Trump declared a national health emergency.

Dr. Erickson pointed out that societies have dealt with past viral contagion by acquiring herd immunity. He laid out the bald facts that WHO officials seem to have forgotten:

“Viruses kill people. End of story. The flu kills people. Covid kills people. But for the rest of us, we develop herd immunity. We develop the ability to take this virus in and defeat it.”

Erickson commented on the case numbers he and Massihi analyzed:

“It is not statistically significant whether you lock down or not. So why are we doing it?”

The doctors said that current events, where uninfected people’s lives have been upturned, suddenly and without notice, have no precedent:

“We’ve never seen where you quarantine the healthy.”

Each year, an estimated 37,000-60,000 patients die of seasonal flu. Before now, said Erickson, “No pandemic talks. No sheltering in place. No shutting down of businesses. No sending doctors home.”

The top docs also warned that sheltering in place will cause secondary problems, including rising cases of child abuse, domestic violence, substance abuse, and income loss. According to Erickson:

“All of these are a significantly more detrimental thing to society than a virus that is proven similar in nature to the seasonal flu that we have every year.”

Hunkering in a bunker also undermines people’s immune systems. We need sunshine, fresh air, and ongoing exposure to many types of viruses and bacteria that cause no harm but exercise the antibody function in our bodies, keeping it ready for action when a genuine intruder germ appears.

Constant disinfecting and wearing protective gear (masks and gloves) is appropriate for front-line caregivers but only makes matters worse for everyone else by lowering exposure to beneficial bacteria that protect us from other diseases. Reduced levels of Vitamin D (from sunshine) and mood (from being cooped up for weeks) also weaken the immune system.

While social isolation reduces the spread of the disease, it also prevents herd immunity. Erickson explained:

“As you come out of sheltering in place, with a lower immune system and start trading viruses and bacteria, what do you think is going to happen? Disease is going to spike.”

The doctors’ video viral. Then, YouTube removed it – as promised, it turns out.

In mid-March, 2020, YouTube warned its community of content creators to expect an increase in video removals during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The streaming data service provider normally uses computer algorithms – step-by-step procedures for problem-solving or accomplishing a task – to identify questionable content. Flagged videos are passed on to humans who evaluate the “safety” of published information before passing a final judgment.

But these are not normal times. Due to state-mandated stay-at-home orders, YouTube justified deleting content without human review. An official statement from YouTube informed:

“As the coronavirus response evolves, we are taking the steps needed to prioritize the well-being of our employees, our extended workforce, and the communities where they live, including reducing in-office staffing in certain sites.”

The purpose of YouTube’s “community standards” is to keep viewers “safe” by separating “real” news from “fake” news (as defined by the corporate owners) before purging all information deemed false or offensive. Muzzling critics of the national COVID-19 response is, according to YouTube’s leadership, for our own protection.

Editorial bias is well within the legal rights of a private corporation operating in the U.S. but suppressing views that oppose the mainstream narrative is a patent violation of free speech and the exchange of ideas.

As YouTube and other monopolistic social media platforms crack down on content rated “unsafe” for viewers and “fake news,” Patriots everywhere are concerned about corporate suppression and on the prowl for alternative sites to share information without the promise of censure.
