More than a year after the emergence of COVID-19, significant regional differences in terms of morbidity persist, showing lower incidence rates in sub-Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia, and Oceania….. Furthermore, we observe that the spatial distribution of several targeted bat species (i.e., Coronavirus species hosts) overlaps the distribution of countries with low COVID-19 incidence. The work presented here aims to test the presence of natural immunity among population with a low COVD-19 prevalence, potentially due to a previous exposure to coronavirus antigens of a virus close related to SARS-CoV-2…. They conclude that exposure to SARS-CoV-2-like viruses before the pandemic was identified, likely explain low prevalence of COVID-19 disease, acknowledging the need for further research in other locations.
Meanwhile another scientist recently shared this map depicting his theory which somewhat matches my own. Lockdown originated from totalitarian ideologues with sinister motives, not from public health science. Human behaviours have only limited impact on viral transmission. Something else explains regional differences.
Part 1 of Karen Harradine’s report Bill Gates and the world health juggernaut in The Conservative Woman, 11 May 2021 is an interesting read. Gates funds vaccine developers, academics working on pandemic policy, media writing about vaccines and tests, and the Government Agency (MHRA) approving vaccines. This is a pattern seen across nations. Is it possible that this stringent lockdown proponent has conflicts of interest? Is it possible he’s not the best public health advocate? Why is evidence ignored in favour of this man’s personal preferences?
