Dr. Knut Wittkowski: A second wave of coronavirus infections will come as a direct result of social distancing and self isolation

In this interview published by Ratical, epidemiologist Dr. Knut Wittkowski talks about the nature of the novel coronavirus, how similar its characteristics and outcomes are from coronaviruses of the past, as well as the implications of its differences. Wittkowski also asserts that containment (lockdowns) of low risk individuals could lead to a second wave  of infections. 

Editor’s Note: 
While data on SARS-COV-2 is only starting to be collected, studies using this data shows that the novel coronavirus is behaving the same way as other coronaviruses. The sudden panic due to its spread does not come from the high mortality, but rather from the unvalidated news being shared online, and the unnecessary fear generated by wide scale lockdowns. 

Based on Dr. Wittkowski’s discussion, we can now understand why lockdowns are difficult to end. Public officials do not understand that the only way to end this pandemic is through strong individual immunity that collectively leads to herd immunity. Governments cannot stop the virus by decree.

[…] The silence on this question from the decision-makers is especially anomalous given the lessons that we have all learned around the world from this pandemic. PLEASE, let us use our critical thinking and common sense.• The Philippine growth rate of infections has dramatically declined [See Death Rate, Science, Lockdown, Fear, The “New Normal”Vaccines, Social Control And The Immune System].• This is true for many parts of the world, as a study from an Israeli scientist has clearly shown [Read COVID-19 Growth Rates Declining Worldwide].• This is happening despite the fact that it is well known that current tests reveal quite a number of “false positives”, thereby exaggerating infections. (See here How Accurate Are COVID-19 Tests?)• The death rates around the world are not accurate. They are bloated. Most of the deaths are NOT FROM COVID-19, but WITH COVID-19. Italy is a prime example [See 99% Of Coronavirus Deaths In Italy Had Other Illnesses].• There is also fraud involved in terms of the actual recording of COVID-19 deaths. Doctors have complained that they are being instructed to record deaths as COVID-19 deaths despite the fact that COVID-19 is not the primary cause of deaths [Read This Is How COVID-19 Death Rates In The US Are Manipulated]• Antibody tests are showing that a lot more people have been infected by COVID-19 but are asymptomatic. (See here – Antibody Testing Shows Coronavirus Infected A Lot More People Than Previously Thought, and here – USC-LA County Antibody Suggests True COVID-19 Infections Higher Than Official Count)• This means that the death rate for COVID-19 is near that of common flu (0.1%) and that the 6.5% + global death rate for COVID-19, as can be calculated from the Worldometer website, is super-exaggerated. It is exaggerated by 6,500%. (See here COVID-19 Pandemic: The Philippine Experience)• The antibody tests as well as the large numbers of asymptomatic people are also showing that the immune system of most people are able to handle the virus quite well.• And the fear of more deaths from a second wave of infections is not only unreal, given the above facts. Worst, continued lockdown will surely bring on a second wave of infections that politicians are fearing [See here Dr. Knut Wittkowski: A Second Wave Of Coronavirus Infections Will Come As A Direct Result Of Social …] […]
