In an August 25, 2021 article published by the Manila Standard, Willie Casas, and Rey Requejo report, COVID cases in the Philippines continue to rise despite lockdowns and quarantine protocols.
However, Department of Health (DOH) spokesperson Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said that the lockdown may result in dropping cases that will be seen within two to three weeks.
Editor’s Note: The DOH, as echoed by the mainstream media, is adamantly reporting the increasing COVID-19 cases, based only on projections. This is problematic, as projections are not the complete picture and must not be used for decision-making. Those who decide for the country’s “pandemic” response must also look at the actual data because there is a wealth of information derived from there. Here are a few examples:
- Simply reporting the cases does not allow decision-makers to see the real impact of the disease on the country’s health care system. How many patients need to be urgently tested, and how many had other illnesses like flu, common cold, sore throat, or those with comorbidities that led them to seek medical help, later on, tested positive through RT-PCR? How does the test differentiate between COVID and other respiratory diseases? We know now that the SARS-CoV-2 virus carries flu-like symptoms, and the RT-PCR tests cannot detect which is which. All those posted positive after the RT-PCR test from the cycle threshold of over 35 are considered COVID-19, with no questions asked.

- Why don’t we segregate cases according to severity? Individuals exposed to positive patients but asymptomatic should be treated as healthy and well. A study was conducted with 10,000 recipients debunking the asymptomatic transmission claim.

- The Philippines, on the other hand, seems to be obstinate with the fear-mongering since we listen to statisticians instead of immunologists and virologists who can suggest what we can do to lower the contagion, if not eradicated. [See OCTA makes another baseless assumption, says Delta community transmission already happening despite having no proof; Open Advisory to the IATF and Media Editors: UP Projections Flawed, Ignore It and Remove Lockdown] The basis of the global lockdown was a mathematical model of Dr. Neil Ferguson, who has been inaccurate with all his previous predictions on MERS, SARS and Ebola etc. US and UK followed this model, set aside natural herd immunity, and adopted a Draconian measure, a society lockdown.

Suppose if only the governments had learned lessons from the previous pandemic responses instead of mathematical models; in that case, we could have avoided this catastrophe. [See COVID-19 models that triggered lockdowns ignored huge historical data on managing viral pandemics] All the measures the governments’ implement are smoke and mirror, which has no other aim but to defy people to push their purported agenda. With the use of scare propaganda through statistics and inflated numbers of positive cases, the only way these orchestrators will succeed is when people continue to live in constant fear and get addicted to it.
