Note: For the complete "Table of Contents" of objections to the pandemic being a psyop (psychological operation) following the shock-doctrine playbook, and a full explanation of how and why it was deployed, and what its architects are seeking from it, and how to defeat them, visit our main page on covid.
"How can Covid be a hoax, if I directly observe
an increase in sickness over the past year?"
"The hospitals are overwhelmed.
There are more sick people now. I notice it!"
"My friend/relative is a doctor/nurse, and he/she says
his/her hospital is crowded, and there are more
sick people in 2020/2021 than in previous years."
"There's obviously something going around,
or else why all the extra sickness?"

There Are Many Reasons for an Increase in Sickness,
and None of Them Require a Brand-New Super-Virus
There could be so many reasons for your observation, BESIDES a novel supervirus.
"What do you mean?"
Ok. We both believe in using science, right? So let's look at this with a scientific mind. Can we do that? "Uh... sure?" Great. So we've got an observation. "Lot's of people are sick. More than normal." Let's call it Observation Y. "Ok." And you seem to be offering the hypothesis that Y was caused by Variable X: "A brand new virus from Wuhan." "Right." And that is a hypothesis.
The idea that Y (an increase in sickness) is caused by X (a new virus from Wuhan) is just a hypothesis, for now, and we're going to examine it for potential flaws. OK?
Now, in order to truly test this hypothesis, we would have to control for other possible X's. Other factors that could potentially be causing Y.
Confounding variables, as they're called. X1, X2, X3, X4, X5, and so forth. "Yes. True. Go on." Can you think of some possible confounding variables? Some other things besides a novel supervirus, that could be causing an increase in sickness in the past year? "Hmmm... Can you help me out?" Yes. What do: -social isolation -depression -lack of exercise -lack of sunlight -lack of fresh air -chronic, intense anxiety -poor air circulation ...all have in common?
"They all increased markedly this past year, due to lockdowns and other anti-virus policies?"
Correct. And what else?
"They're all bad for health?"
"But we're talking about INFECTIONS. We're talking about RESPIRATORY disease. Not heart attacks or any of that."
These factors all degrade the immune system, which leaves people more vulnerable to infections, including by respiratory diseases.
"How do they affect the immune system?"
The following are facts, and we dare anyone to dispute them: 1. The things listed above decrease overall health.
"Right, I agree with that." 2. Overall health affects the functionality of the immune system.
"Sure." 3. The condition of the immune system affects the severity and outcome of infectious diseases.
If you decrease overall health, you're creating greater vulnerability to any and all infections - including a new virus from Wuhan (if it indeed exists), as well as all viruses and bacteria.
"I get it. It makes sense. But I'm just not sure that those effects would be... sufficient. Can you elaborate a bit on how they work? Are there more variables?"
Got ya covered. Let's go into detail, so we can see just how intensely damaging these variables are:
* * * X1: Social Isolation
Socializing is a central aspect of being human. Without it, people wither.
And this year, governments deliberately collapsed their societies. Not in the form of total anarchy and chaos, a la "Mad Max", but in terms of the social fabric. They stuck it in a file cabinet and locked it. People can no longer gather with their friends. In some places, gatherings are forbidden, by force, while in other places, people are simply too afraid, even if allowed.
All of the social activities that people live for and look forward to, from the lowly sports bar to the family dinner to the church service - all of it was either banned or severely restricted.
Considering how central social activities are to the human experience, it is common sense that removing them would cause cascading effects of pathology, throughout the body of society, and thus, the bodies of individuals.
Did we really think it would have no effect?
Without these activities, people's mental and spiritual health has declined, leaving them more vulnerable to infections.
Another result of social isolation is depression. With almost everything sweet in life forbidden, people are falling into deep depression, wondering what they possibly have to look forward to in life.
The connection between depression and immune system degradation is well-established in scientific literature.
By throwing the population into depression, governments have made people more vulnerable to infections.
X3: Lack of sunlight
Sunlight, fresh air, the outdoors, and exercise. Governments have restricted these as well. What do you think happens when you decrease these?
Sunlight, for one thing, is essential for Vitamin D production. Most people who get severe symptoms of "covid" have deficiencies in Vitamin D.
When someone in Spain finally got the brilliant idea to start paying attention to nutrition (genius, right?) this happened:
See the connection?
Furthermore, sunlight is vital for mental and spiritual health. You can't summarize its benefits in terms of a single vitamin. It's so much bigger than that. Sunlight and fresh air are central to who we are. When you reduce people's exposure to the Sun and the wind, and keep them cooped up inside, sickness increases. We've known this all our lives. Why did we suddenly forget?
"Ok but it's not like people are getting "no sunlight." That's a huge exaggeration. I go outside. My friends go outside."
But you know there are people who don't. There are people who have pretty much not left their houses since March of last year. They tend to be the most loyal consumers of mainstream media - the oldest and frailest among us. The ones whom the media says are "most at risk."
So we've got a situation where the people "most at risk" - in other words, the most in need of sunlight and normal social activity - are the ones least getting it.
A recipe for sickness.
X4: Lack of exercise
Exercise is, of course, central to health. Yet governments have "closed down" gyms, yoga studios, dance studios...
...and even hiking trails.
They've arrested people for paddle-boarding in the ocean.
In some countries, they're arresting people for jogging...
...or even for walking the dog.
Even in places where exercising is still legal, there are "stay-at-home orders" still in effect. Some of them are no longer "being enforced," but they're still technically in effect, and police could be ordered to start enforcing them again, at any moment. This creates a chilling effect, leading to less exercise, overall.
What does lack of exercise do?
It makes people more vulnerable to infectious disease.
X5: Isolation from the microbial community
People who actually understand biology (i.e. not the newsmedia) know that the human body has a microbiome of bacteria and a virome (viral ecosystem) of viruses, and that staying healthy requires continually exchanging these microbes with other people, and with the natural world.
Continual exchange of microbes keeps the immune system well-equipped and healthy. If you erect a hermetically sealed bubble around yourself, your microbiome becomes isolated, and your immune system degrades, making you more vulnerable to infection not only from other people when you finally do re-emerge, but also from yourself, as your immune degradation allows your own endemic microbes to multiply out of balance.
In other words, microbial isolation (the whole goal of lockdowns, masks, etc) can cause you to get sick from microbes you're already carrying, and have been carrying all your life. You don't even need to "catch" anything to get sick, living like this. Microbial isolation makes you more vulnerable to infectious disease.
X6: Recirculation of pathogens
in small enclosed spaces, like apartments.
When you stay indoors all day, you end up re-circulating your own pathogens, and re-inhaling them. Sitting cooped up in an apartment all day is bad for your health. Everyone knows this. Why are some of us pretending we forgot? There are many people who have barely gone outside since March. They've been huddled in their homes, all day and night, receiving their essential supplies from Amazon. No sunlight, no fresh air, no exercise, no social contact. And these are usually the people who claim to be "immunocompromised", and "most at risk." So in other words, the people MOST at risk for infections are the people getting the LEAST of the vital elements of health. Do you see the problem here?
* * *
These are all confounding variables that could be contributing to the increase in sickness in 2020/2021. If "a brand new virus from Wuhan" is X0, then these are X1, X2, X3, X4, X5, X6, and so on. Y has many X's that could be causing it - not just one. How do you know that X0 is the ONLY cause here? You don't. It is unscientific to say, with certainty, that "Y is solely caused by X0 (a brand new virus)" - at least until you've designed a way to control for these other variables in your methodology. And no one, thus far, has done this, nor even attempted to do, since the very idea of more than one X potentially existing is considered a "conspiracy theory" that can get a scientist literally fired from his job and blacklisted from the scientific community, just for merely speaking about it. But we're not done. There are more variables.
X7: Unemployment and poverty.
When you force businesses to close, and you throw people out of work and into bankruptcy, you cause poverty, which is well-documented to be correlated with poor health, which makes people more vulnerable to infectious disease.
X8: Uncertainty, anxiety, and constant fear.
The governments of the world, and their mass-media enablers, plunged the whole world into the grip of an intense, unrelenting survival-anxiety. The TV is pumping us full of stress-hormones, all day and night. People are on their sofas, clutching their hand-sanitizer, staring at the TV, watching bio-armageddon-porn, getting hit with one dose of terror after another. And since they're not going outside anymore (see above), they have nothing to do, no form of "entertainment" besides the TV, and so they just sit there in front of it, all day long, on a constant IV drip of fear. What does all this fear do to people's bodies? It's well-documented that anxiety erodes health - including immune health. It causes blood to flow away from the organs, and toward the extremities. This is because, when we were evolving on the savannah, "fear" usually meant it was time to "run away" from something - like a lion or a sabre-tooth tiger.
And running involves the arms and legs. When we're scared, our blood moves to our extremities, to help us run as fast as possible. And when it goes to the extremities, it goes away from the organs.
If you're in a chronic state of anxiety, then your blood is chronically moving away from your organs and into your extremities. With less blood, the organs can't function as well. They degrade, over time, and their functions degrade with them.
Less overall health leads to weaker immune systems, and more vulnerability to infectious disease.
There is a reason why no species of aerobic animal has ever evolved with a built-in barrier obstructing its airway.
There is a reason why humanity has not worn barriers over our mouths for the past 200,000 years.
There is a reason why you didn't wear a mask in 2019 or earlier.
And there's a reason why you take it off when you get home. And they're all the same reason. Airway-obstruction is bad. It harms you. The gaslighting on this topic has been extreme. There are millions of people walking around, right now, thinking that mask-wearing has absolutely no effect on air-circulation and O2/CO2 exchange. They can feel the warm, moist air pooling around their mouth when they exhale, and yet they deny that it's pooling. There is a science called fluid dynamics. And in fluid dynamics, we know that:
placing an object over the aperture (opening) of a conduit (pipe, container, etc.) decreases the flow of fluid into and out of the conduit
