Life Site News has published an extensive analysis of the media manipulation regarding India’s covid cases and deaths.
Mainstream media reports of surging COVID-19 case levels in India over the last few weeks reignited a wave of fear due to a supposed “far more deadly” variant. Hospitals are reportedly overwhelmed with patients, parking lots are turned into massive cremation sites, broad anger flares against the government due to a shortage of oxygen, and calls are increasing to lock down a nation of 1.4 billion people.
One hint that we may be encountering a dose of media sensationalism occurred when a New York Post article stating in the title, “footage shows people dead in the streets” featured a picture of a suffering woman lying at a curbside from an incident later identified to be a May 2020 gas leak in Andhra Pradesh.
Much of this dynamic is reminiscent of many headlines that encouraged the same alarm early last year, such as “A man lies dead in the street: the image that captures the Wuhan coronavirus crisis,” or “Disaster Zone Coronavirus leaves Wuhan a ‘zombieland’ with people collapsing in streets and medics patrolling in hazmat suits.”
As observed in the Daily Expose, after a year of observation such “scenes have not been replicated anywhere else, confirming that it was all a lie and propaganda.” Now, however, “they are playing the same game, but this time with India.”
As has been documented elsewhere, many scientists have criticized the way PCR tests have been used for the purpose of identifying COVID-19 cases calling their administration “useless” and “flawed science.”
Tengra agrees and illustrates in his research how using these tests at 35 cycles or above, which he reports is the setting in India, will produce a false positive rate of 97% to 99.9%. Therefore, the more testing is done, the more false positives are produced.
And in a nation where “respiratory diseases including COPD, TB, and respiratory tract infections like bronchitis leading to pneumonia are always among the top ten killers,” these conditions are severely aggravated by the air pollution especially on a seasonal basis when the weather is changing as it does this time of the year (“April/May”).
During these seasonal peaks, oxygen supplies can run low, and with this year’s addition of a “pandemic of panic” instigated by alarmist media coverage, some patients may be reluctant to go to government hospitals out of fear of catching COVID-19, while doctors themselves may not fulfill their normal duties for the same reason, resulting in an increase of life-threatening complications.
Combine these factors with policies that have been common in many other countries, including the U.S., where according to Tengra, India’s death certificate guidelines are structured to easily facilitate the labeling of individuals as having died from COVID-19 merely due to a positive PCR test, or general symptoms, and it becomes somewhat difficult to determine who actually died from the virus, and who was altogether misdiagnosed and misreported as a COVID death.
