Conflicting reports, fake and inaccurate numbers, bizarre claims, nations in lockdown, and a virus that is acting differently now than when it began in Wuhan, China.
Many believe there is much more going on behind the scenes than we know about, and with each new report and conflicting coverage, that belief is looking more probable every day.
Along with discussion regarding each of the aforementioned areas, as part of a reader request, we want to hear from you about what you think is going on, how dealing with this stressful time is affecting each individual while cooped up in the home or yard.
With so much coverage about COVID-19, is there something else going on that is weighing on your mind?
Reader thoughts to all the above are encouraged in the comment section below.
CONFLICTING REPORTS AND NUMBERS
Let us provide clear examples of conflicting reports and numbers.
Using Avast Secure browser, which uses the Bing search engine, when searching for "COVID-19" a information box comes up which shows the "official" numbers of confirmed cases, deaths and recovered, in the U.S. A screen shot of that information box is shown below:
Those are the numbers we see quoted by some establishment media outlets, while Wall Street Journal reports how Italy's numbers, which are included in the "official" global numbers, are completely off and their death toll is far higher than what they have reported to date.
In the areas worst hit by the pandemic, Italy is undercounting thousands of deaths caused by the virus, a Wall Street Journal analysis shows, indicating that the pandemic’s human toll may end up being much greater, and infections far more widespread, than official data indicate.
But civil servants tell Caixan that businesses are actually faking these numbers. Beijing had started checking Zhejiang businesses' electricity consumption levels, so district officials ordered the companies to start leaving their lights and machinery on all day to drive the numbers up, one civil servant said. Businesses have reportedly falsified staff attendance logs as well — they "would rather waste a small amount of money on power than irritate local officials," Caixan writes.
In Wuhan, officials have tried to make it appear that recovery efforts are going smoothly. But when "central leaders" personally survey disinfecting regimens and food delivery, local officials "make a special effort" for them and them alone, one resident told Caixan. And in a video circulating on social media, residents can be seen shouting at visiting leaders from the apartments where they're being quarantined — "Fake, it's all fake."
Even the Washington Post, has started questioning the numbers coming out of Wuhan itself, where the virus reportedly originated. Other recent reports confirm China has been rigging the numbers and covering up the truth, since the beginning.
Here in America, ANP has been informed by medical professionals that deaths that have occurred before they were tested have list cause of death as "acute respiratory failure," and other causes due to the lack of testing or resources.
The point here is none of the numbers are accurate and there is a good chance that we will never have accurate numbers, yet the establishment media continues to cite those "official" numbers even as other headlines from the same sources, provides information that contradicts their own reports.
They expect people to not notice or to wave it away because they themselves are refusing to acknowledge just how bizarre the MSM's reporting on this has been since the beginning.
We also have seen readers mention another tidbit of strangeness that the general public, those that still seem to trust the MSM, completely ignores.
Pastors in Florida and Louisiana are being arrested for refusing to cancel church. Also in the headlines, inmates across the U.S. are being released from prison because of coronavirus.
Younger adults in New York City are being hospitalized with Covid-19 infections at surprisingly high rates, said doctors and other health-care workers treating them, undermining earlier assumptions about who’s most at risk from the new coronavirus.
New York has more confirmed cases than anywhere else in the U.S., and about 1 in 5 hospitalizations are occurring in people under age 44, according to data released by the city’s health department. Globally, moderate-to-severe cases have occurred in 10% to 15% of adults under age 50, according to the World Health Organization.
What is the real reason for so many conflicting reports?
Is it not utterly bizarre how one writer at an outlet will report how the numbers are not accurate, while another writer at the same outlet will cite the same official numbers knowing they are not accurate?
Do readers believe this is a naturally occurring virus? Or a bioweapon created in Wuhan? For those that think this is a bioweapon, do you think it was deliberately released or an accidental release?
With much of the nation on lockdown, only allowed to travel for essentials, doctors or medications, and grocery shopping, along with being able to walk or exercise outside, we have noted some talk about grumpiness, short tempers, and other signs of what can be called "cabin fever."
How are you coping? What are you doing to keep busy and using as your coping mechanism?
We will let the reader that wanted to know what is on ANP commenters' minds, begin with a portion of what he is thinking about: "I also think things are going to get a bit bizarre in the days ahead. Every day things just keep getting weirder. So far we're been restricted on travel, food is getting low in some areas, trucking it in is becoming harder and these panic hoarders aren't helping much. Same people at the same stores every day loading baskets each time is hurting those who don't have the luxury of getting the needed items because of greed. We're all in this together."
What say you, PipeLiners?
Each day while browsing hundreds or reports and articles, the same thoughts keep going through my mind: The conflicting reports don't make sense.The supposed answers by the establishment media appear to create more questions than they answered to begin with.
There is something very strange going on with this virus, how it is being handled, the way world leaders are reacting to it, and the inconsistencies we are seeing with each new report.
Should be interesting to see what readers think is going on.
We'll end this on a fun note because in this stressful time, we all need to laugh a little.
