Laura Ingraham Is First Mainstream Reporter to Discuss Faulty WHO Coronavirus Mortality Rate

March 27, 2020

On Friday night Laura Ingraham was the first mainstream reporter to question the WHO’s suggested mortality rate of the coronavirus of 3.4%.

There are two main organizations behind the global coronavirus panic.
The first was World Health Organization’s Director General, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who claimed in a press conference in early March that the fatality rate for the coronavirus was many multiples that of the fatality rate of the common flu. Ghebreyesus claimed the coronavirus had a 3.4% mortality rate and incorrectly compared this inaccurate number to the annual estimated flu mortality rate of 0.1%.

And the second organization was the Imperial College study from London that claimed half a million Brits would die in the pandemic and 2 million Americans would perish from COVID-19.

They were both wrong.

As we have reported numerous times now…  The controversial Ethiopian politician and Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, claimed in a press conference in early March that the fatality rate for the coronavirus was many multiples that of the fatality rate of the common flu.

 This egregiously false premise has led to the greatest economic panic in world history.

The Director General of the WHO spoke on March 3, 2020 and shared this related to the coronavirus:

While many people globally have built up immunity to seasonal flu strains, COVID-19 is a new virus to which no one has immunity. That means more people are susceptible to infection, and some will suffer severe disease.

Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died. By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% of those infected.

Here is the video of Dr. Ghebreyesus’s remarks.

This statement led to the greatest panic in world history as the global elite media shared and repeated that the coronavirus was many, many times more deadly than the common flu.

The problem is his statement is false. 

On Thursday the man behind the Imperial College study backtracked and now says 20,000 UK citizens may die from the coronavirus and not the original half a million they predicted.

This was a HUGE development.

On Thursday, while answering questions with President Trump and the rest of the White House coronavirus task force, Dr. Deborah Birx admitted that the initial coronavirus death estimates were too extreme.

This is exactly what The Gateway Pundit has been reported for 11 days now.

  1. Dig a hole in the sand; insert head.

    How’s this for data?

    “Tectonix, geospatial data visualization platform, working in partnership with location company X-Mode Social, created an alarming map that shows the impact of ignoring social distancing restrictions.

    “Focusing on just one group of spring break revelers on part of one beach in mid-March when they left Fort Lauderdale, Fla., it quickly becomes obvious that the thousands of people who were at the beach ended up all over the country — in the Midwest, the Northeast and other parts of the South”

    When these privileged kids return to their upscale college towns and families in the NE and MW, we may see all the President’s hard work unravel. COVID-19 has increased ten-fold around the world, just in March, and most of that increase has been in Europe and the US. Does anyone here have any idea what sort of contagion we’re talking about?

    I might also note that Jews are in the thick of this, especially Modern Orthodox and Israeli Jews. Israel’s infection rate is on the moon; and half the US cases are in the NYC area alone, disproportionately hitting the MO community there. This is not a time for rejoicing it is a time for repentance and prayer.

  2. “This is not a time for rejoicing it is a time for repentance and prayer.”

    As far as Judaism goes, I like the food and the humour. And I believe in Zionism, for practical rather than religious reasons- let’s keep things secular in Israel or be overrun by the present-shunning, medieval-thinking, ludicrously dressed Black Hats and their fashion-crime womenfolk.

    However I find people who actually believe in the quoted statement, (considering there’s been an ongoing program stretching over the past 3,000 years to see who can get rid of us most efficiently) laughable.

  3. You sound so crass, Point your venom towards the Hutterites, Mennonites, Amish, Duukhobors (REAL pippins), and the several similar 17th-18th century sects, who used wooden pegs to join items together-Modern clothing, transport and science were (are) strangers to them. Go and attack them. !!

    {{I recall the “Shakers”, a strange, harmless sect, now gone, (but not before I had the opportunity to see the last remaining small group -of women- “pray” and shake”…..a very sad and moving spectacle. (Today, and for many years, their hand-hewn, made and polished, very plain furniture is highly sought after by collectors)}}

  4. @ Edgar G.:

    “Point your venom towards the Hutterites, Mennonites, Amish, Duukhobors…”

    Edgar, you’re talking like an idiot. Perhaps isolation has made you mad.

  5. Laura I. can’t do simple math. Check out the facts:

    Cases which had an outcome:

    139,555 (82%)
    Recovered / Discharged

    30,300 (18%)

    Either you recover from the illness, or you die. Laura was comparing apples and oranges.

    Now check out the graph for “deaths”. Currently there are 27,345 worldwide (= half the US deaths in Vietnam ). The doubling time is 6 days. Check again in six days, and see if the total isn’t ~55,000. This is called


  6. Steve Apfel has a very insightful and sensitive article in today’s Israpundit about the impact of the coronavirus panic on Israel’s people:

    “China Article V: We will never be quite the same again.
    Oh, where is Dr. Freud when one needs him?
    Steve Apfel

    Who would ever have thought that anything could knock the pandemic of Jew hatred off the front pages?

    Well, the Chinese government has managed to do so. All day, every day, perhaps with the exception of some particularly malevolent media in Iran or Gaza, most English-language TV broadcasts all, all, focus only on the Wuhan Virus—the escalating rates of infection and death; the absence of adequate equipment; the consequences to our economies; tips on keeping safe—on and on, as if nothing else matters. And, for the moment, nothing else does, the world has come to a hard standstill.

    We will never be quite the same again. Now, countless millions, all those who do not get sick or who do not die, are experiencing what it is like to be a shut-in, to be unable to go out, or to go out very often, or alone, or with ease. Perhaps when this siege is over, able-bodied people will remember it and reach out with a new kindness to those who have been permanently left behind.

    We will never be quite the same again—and yet: Families who are now shut in together have probably never before been in such close contact for so long and with so few reprieves, no dashing into the surf, no walking along the beach, no amusement park rides. Nothing. Nada. Young children may someday remember this as a War in which their parents (if they are not doctors or nurses) were able to stay home; as a memory they may treasure in the distant future.

    We have time-traveled, at least partly, back to previous centuries, when one worked at home or nearby and did not go far beyond one’s own village. Were it not for electricity, plumbing, the internet, live-streaming, and television (how lucky we are!), we might time-travel back even further, when only a mere handful dared risk long and always dangerous ocean voyages.”

  7. More from Steve Apfel:” All around me, people are terrified of falling prey to the Wuhan Virus. Some are quite hysterical. One woman, who merely had a cold but had no fever, was not coughing, and had no trouble breathing, nevertheless told all her colleagues that her doctor had diagnosed her as “mildly positive” for the virus—and he did so over the phone. Oh, where is Dr. Freud when one needs him?

    One woman seems to have gone a little stir crazy. Laughing, she proudly old me that she takes walks in the middle of the night, and she marveled at the deep quiet on the darkened and deserted streets. She is prone to falling and refuses to use a cane or a walker. I was aghast but remained silent.”

    Apfel also points out the disasterous impact that allowing allmost all of our (American) manufacturing to go to China has had on the United States now that that source has become less reliable. Also, how easily China can blackmail us simply by refusing to send us pharmaceuticals and other necessities of life if we ever try to impose tariffs or other sanctions they don’t like on them.

  8. “2019-2020 U.S. Flu Season: Preliminary Burden Estimates
    CDC estimates* that, from October 1, 2019, through March 21, 2020, there have been:

    38,000,000 – 54,000,000
    flu illnesses

    18,000,000 – 26,000,000
    flu medical visits

    400,000 – 730,000
    flu hospitalizations

    24,000 – 62,000
    flu deaths

    *Because influenza surveillance does not capture all cases of flu that occur in the U.S., CDC provides these estimated ranges to better reflect the larger burden of influenza. These estimates are calculated based on CDC’s weekly influenza surveillance data and are preliminary.

    **Influenza testing across the United States may be higher than normal at this time of year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. These estimates may partly reflect increases in testing in recent weeks and may be adjusted downward once the season is complete and final data for the 2019/20 season are available.

    This web page provides weekly, preliminary estimates of the cumulative in-season numbers of flu illnesses, medical visits, hospitalizations, and deaths in the United States. CDC does not know the exact number of people who have been sick and affected by influenza because influenza is not a reportable disease in most areas of the U.S. However, CDC has estimated the burden of flu since 2010 using a mathematical model that is based on data collected through the U.S. Influenza Surveillance System, a network that covers approximately 8.5% of the U.S. population (~27 million people).”

    Interesting that the CDC collects such seemingly precise numbers of “COVID-19” cases , but has only vague estimates of the number of influenza cases, and keeps no exact statistic on the occurrance of this long-known and sometimes deadly disease. Also odd that the reported symptoms of “COVID-19” are suspiciously similar to those of influenza and/or the common cold and/or pneumonia. Why then have CDC, WHO, and doctors following their lead now classified “COVID-19” as a new disease, distinct from these three-long-known diseases? Very, very fishy.

    Even from these vague and tentative figures, it is clear that the total annual fatalities from influenza greatly exceed those that have been attributed to “CORONA-19.” I have not even looked up the CDC’s estimates of the number of fatalities caused by pneumonia, bronchitis, and streptococcus infections. But they undoubtedly add greatly to the annual death toll for seasonally related infectious diseases. Probably the victims of “COVID-19” are simply those individual suffering from one or the other of these diseases that tested positive for the virus that allegedly causes “COVID-19.” (they have recently renamed this virus, inorder to distinguish it from the supposed new disease that it allegedly causes. I can’t remember the new coined, devised only a few weeks ago).

    P.S.The new name they have given to the “novel coronavirus” in order to distinguish it from the supposed disease it allededly causes is “SARS-CoV-2”

  9. @ adamdalgliesh:
    “Apfel also points out”.
    The politicians created this crisis to get widespread support for the idea of returning the manufacturing back to the US (“See, nothing works! We cannot rely on imports!”) and to entice the manufacturers to come back to the US.
    There is nothing intrinsically wrong with China (or whoever) being a world factory and the world being a global village unless the ruling classes have other plans.
    There is only one problem – who will work in the factories in the US?
    Either the purposely impoverished and desperate American population (Generation Z turned into proletariat against their will working in a highly polluted environment) or robots (eventually but not now, not everywhere, anyway).
    The question is WHY?
    Why the politicians are so desperate to make America self-sufficient (MAGA)?
    Are they planning another “quick and victorious” WW on the continent thinking that Americans will watch it on television while eating popcorn and then they will rush in at the last moment to “win it” and to collect the spoils?
    You know the saying “Men plan and God laughs”?

  10. @ Michael S:

    That’s really strange coming from a person like you, who believes in a nailed up man on a post (who originally, and for 8 centuries, was a lamb, carried around on the shepherd’s shoulder) as a God, and prays to this mythical figure—Remarkably strange-

    Perhaps you’ll tell me what has aroused your “ire”, as I see no reason for it in my otherwise innocuous post, which was not directed to you – But then, irrational persons with psychological “needs”, act strangely, and normal people like myself can’t foresee what sets them off on an unprovoked attack like this present “eruption”- Is this a part of your “Rage Day”, to give your frustrations an airing ??? Holtzhacker !!!

    Do you know anything about the Doukhobors The others are mild, peaceful people, but these, a breakaway section of whom settled in BC years ago, close to where I was living- They refused to send their kids to school, and had some very dubious practices concerning their LEADER’S multiple sex, so the School Dept moved in, later followed by the RCMP,

    Their method of protesting, (apart from a little mayhem here and there) was to burn their own homes down, whilst dancing around it, stark naked—and they were NOT peasant sights to see,, You’d understand them well, being in their psychotic ballpark. !

  11. @ Edgar G.:
    Edgar, you’re still talking like a babbling idiot. Nobody’s “raging” here except you. You seem to think you’re on a different website. Doukhobors? Goblins? What the hell are you talking about??? Get some sleep.

  12. @ Michael S:
    @ Michael S:

    I’m disappointed in your improvised insults- Surely a *scientist*, such as you insinuate yourself to be, could do better, perhaps you’re running out of insults-

    I actually was inveigled into reading my post again to see if I had, inadvertently, used the words “raging, goblins”– and, as expected from someone of your meagre calibre, they were nowhere to be found. “Goblins” suggests your real frame of thinking.
    It happens sometimes when person like you is ll twisted up inside your head from your religious mania.a

    So, if I may be allowed to make a suggestion for your benefit and mental .betterment, take a rest; stop attributing imaginary derogation to others, and the best way to do this is–to shut your stupid mouth. It’s a waste of good time answering you.

    I will not communicate with you again-I was mistaken in believing that we were amicable internet acquaintances.

  13. @ Ted Belman:

    I’m sorry Ted that I had to be so openly blunt on your site. But I was responding a finally as I could, to a completely unprovoked and extremely offensive-to-me attack from Michael S, who was not remotely involved. (I responded to Wellesley’s vicious attack on the Haredim in Israel in a normal way.).

    He was very personally insulting, and I was seriously offended. I responded in kind. I wanted to shut the guy up. And I did, so there will be not more of these distasteful exchanges-
