If you recall back in February when Covid19 first started and I was splitting my coverage between impeachment and the virus I noted several dislocation-style events in the claimed Wuhan data coming out of China. I noted that these events were statistical impossibilities for a virus and indicated that China was lying. One can infer the reason for said lying, but you can’t prove it.
But that it was happening was clear. After the third or fourth one I simply gave up and stopped reporting on the “cases” because the data was clearly being tampered with and reporting on something you know is bull**** is the very definition of fake news.
Through the late spring and into the summer a very clean formulaic view of this disease became apparent, and pieces of what were conjecture were conclusively validated. Basic epidemiology tells you that herd suppression happens at 1- (1/R0); this is the point at which, statistically-speaking, each infected person fails to find a new victim during their infectious window. This does not mean the disease disappears, but it does mean that the sort of spike we have seen repeatedly cannot happen any more.
