Italy Says 96% of Virus Fatalities Suffered From Other Illnesses

category national | health / disability issues | news report author Thursday May 28, 2020 23:11author by 1 of indy Report this post to the editors

Only 1.1% of fatalities were under 50, with average age of 80

Now that the lockdown has been secured and people have been convinced of all the manipulation and lies and the police state measures have been accepted, it is very hard to overturn these in peoples mind and for them to accept the whole reason for economic suicide has largely been a hoax.

It is therefore safe for the mainstream media to publish more truthful information and some of them are doing. The reason is because they will be able to say they did -eventually -publish the facts if anything should go wrong -that is resistance against the police state and the second reason is because it will make little difference at this stage since the objectives of phase 1 of the global police state have been achieved.

So it is with this that Bloomberg is now telling us what those you have been paying attention already know and that is the Covid poster child of Europe -Italy that 96% of all the virus deaths suffered from other illness and were already dying.

Extracts of the Bloomberg report follows.

The coronavirus outbreak in Italy has struck overwhelmingly among the nation’s older population and those with preexisting medical conditions, according to the national health authority.

Almost 96% of the country’s virus fatalities had previous medical conditions, data from Italy’s ISS health institute show. The ISS, which publishes a range of studies on the outbreak including a detailed weekly report, confirms a trend seen since the beginning of the emergency, with the average age of Italians who’ve died from the virus at around 80.

“The latest numbers show that new cases and fatalities have a common profile: mostly elderly people with previous illnesses,” ISS chief Silvio Brusaferro said at a news conference Friday.

With over 32,000 deaths and more than 230,000 cases, Italy was the original European epicenter of the pandemic. The country began emerging from a nationwide lockdown on May 4, when about 4 million people went back to work.

Most shops, bars and restaurants were allowed to reopen two weeks later with distancing rules, and Italians are again allowed to travel freely -- but only within their home regions.

The government has pledged to allow full free movement from June 3 .....


Note how despite finally coming clean there was no good reason for the lockdown they still go on about infections as if it is something scary. It isn't. And yet they use that to drag the restrictions out as long as possible

This next paragraph is a perfect illustration of that. The mainstream never loose an opportunity to push the Covid propaganda even while they are admitting it was a hoax. Not a single young person died from this and they push the idea there is some kind of danger. There is a far bigger danger with damaging people's mental health, let alone removing their primary rights of freedom and liberty

Government officials and health experts also fear that young people may have gotten the message that they’re not at risk from the pathogen. After throngs of them gathered in squares and nightlife districts over the weekend, many not respecting rules on social distancing or use of masks, local officials have begun weighing moves to limit large groups. Milan Mayor Giuseppe Sala banned sales of takeout drinks after 7 p.m.


This next piece is a classic way mainstream media twists facts

Although the average age of virus cases is 62 years old, about 30% of those infected are under 50.


So above they state 1.1% of the deaths were people under 50 and you can be damn sure they had underlying conditions and yet they use 30% above. The idea here is that someone skimming the article will swap the 1% for 30% and go away thinking 30% of deaths were young people. That is why that is there. It is a way of saying two things at once. The statement: about 30% of those infected are under 50. -is meaningless because does it means those who exposed to the virus or were sick with the virus. Every year plenty of people are quite sick with the flu but we don't lock up the whole country.

Towards the end of their article they have to leave with some "mystery" just in case the reader thought it was okay so they give this nonsense

The most recent ISS weekly study, based on a sample of about 10% of fatalities until May 21, also showed that just 124 victims, or 4.1% of the total, had no previous pathology.


The purpose of this is so those who truly believed the scare have something to take away so that they don't have to admit that they were totally mislead and fooled by the government and media and that is "so there is something unexplained and we are right to be worried"..

Breaking that down. Italy with a population of 60 million has about 1650 deaths every day of every year, regardless. In the space of 2 months (Apr + May), you are always going to have the odd person dying of mystery conditions. People drop dead all the time from all sorts of things, whether it is heart attacks out of the blood, strange infections, strokes and a whole host of things. The point is they are trying to imply these same 124 died of Covid. Note how they imply only. Sure it may have been a mystery whatever it was but why does it have to be covid. They could have had failing kidney or a sudden blood clot. There are literally thousands of strange medical conditions that unfortunately do strike down people. And when you are dealing with 60 million, there are going to be a few.

I got one sentence in to this paranoid gibberish. EVERYBODY can be defined as 'already dying'.
