After Joe Biden’s election victory was certified by the Congress on January 6th, something strange happened to COVID-19 cases and mortality estimates. Many Republicans and conservatives predicted it, even though their predictions were slightly off on the timing.
Former President Donald Trump and Texas Senator Ted Cruz were widely ridiculed in the media after claiming that once Biden was elected, the media would lose interest in the coronavirus pandemic.
In July, Trump said, “That’s all I hear, you turn on the television.” “COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. They don’t worry about it when a plane crashes, killing 500 people. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID. COVID.
“By the way, you won’t hear about it until November 4th,” Donald Trump said.
“If Biden wins in November,” Cruz added in July, “I hope he doesn’t, I don’t think he will, but if he does, I guarantee you the week after the election, all those Democratic governors, all those Democratic mayors will say ‘everything has magically improved.’ Return to work, return to school,’ and all of a sudden, the problems are solved. You won’t even have to wait for Biden’s inauguration.”
That’s incorrect. Americans will have to wait until January 6th for Biden’s election ‘victory’ to be confirmed until these forecasts become eerily accurate. After all, here’s what happened after Biden was elected:
The number of COVID-19 cases reported started to drop like a rock.
“Hmm, can anyone remind me if there was some major incident, maybe political, on January 20th, right when the cases started to drop?” The Rubin Report’s host, Dave Rubin, inquired.
As soon as Biden took office, many Americans expected that the cases would start to decline.
The number of COVID-19 cases and deaths will peak the week after Biden’s election certification. On January 7th, there were 843,771 regular cases, and on January 8th, there were 844,742 cases.
It will take until January 12th for COVID mortality to reach its peak of 4,513 deaths per day. The rapid decline can be explained by a variety of natural and scientific causes. One of them is the usual flu season trajectory, despite the fact that the common flu has mysteriously “disappeared” from confirmed cases.
The vaccines produced and manufactured under Trump’s administration, with significant help from Operation Warp Speed, started to be distributed the week Biden’s election was certified.
On January 4th, the New York Times wrote, “The first shots in the American mass vaccination campaign were issued on Monday, ushering in a new chapter in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more people in the United States — over 300,000 — than in any other country.”
The media must prepare the public for the miraculous COVID turnaround on the eve of Biden’s inauguration.
On January 19, The Atlantic wrote, “America inaugurates a new president tomorrow.” “As control is transferred, responsibility for the COVID-19 pandemic is transferred as well. According to The Atlantic’s COVID Tracking Project, the pandemic has resulted in 23.9 million cases and 392,428 deaths on the eve of Joe Biden’s inauguration. There are currently 123,820 patients in hospitals. States have recorded 144,047 cases and 2,141 deaths today alone.”
The WHO will update its advice on PCR tests shortly after Biden’s inauguration.
WHO Recommendations SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic testing recommends that poor positive findings be carefully interpreted. The virus detection period threshold (Ct) is inversely proportional to the patient’s viral load. A new specimen should be taken and retested using the same or a different NAT technology if the test findings do not match the clinical presentation.
It also warns about the possibility of a “false positive” PCR test:
The World Health Organization (WHO) reminds IVD users that disease prevalence affects the predictive value of test results; as disease prevalence declines, the likelihood of false positives rises. This means that, regardless of the claimed specificity, the likelihood that an individual with a positive result (SARS-CoV-2 detected) is truly infected with SARS-CoV-2 decreases as prevalence decreases.
Other elements of COVID reporting prior to the election are problematic. The estimated age of death for COVID cases was 78 years old, which is almost equal to the average life expectancy in the United States. According to the CDC, 80 percent of those who died after contracting the virus were over 65 years old, and 94 percent had severe comorbidities.
Despite this, the news media often reported on the virus as if it posed an equal danger to everyone in the general population, including stable teenagers and infants. Several state governors, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, recognized this and took effective action, but they were viciously targeted. Meanwhile, governors like New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, whose nursing home regulations killed thousands, were lauded in the newspapers. That should be enough to convince Americans that the COVID pandemic was used to help Democrats gain political advantage.
