Slightly over three years ago, and just as the COVID-19 “pandemic” was beginning to unfold, Bill Sardi calculated out the fatality rate for those catching COVID-19. As he encouragingly wrote in Health Freedom News in its Winter 2019 issue, “Just in case you are worried, out of a population of 7.8 billion people on Earth, your chance of developing symptoms from this corona-shaped cold virus is about 1 in millions and for death about 1 in hundreds of millions. However, risk dramatically increases with advancing age and among malnourished populations such as in Asia where deficiencies of essential nutrients – namely zinc and Vitamins C, and D – are often prevalent. Modern medicine casts a blind eye on nutrition.”
It was a shame that Bill’s voice was not better heard and his advice followed, for in the ensuing three-year period, mass media and governments worldwide egged on a panic among people that led to many more deaths than were necessary. And true to his latter words, it was the treatments, especially the experimental injections, that were killing patients and not the virus.
As one commentator just remarked in apparent agreement with Bill, “the biggest lie of all is that pandemics are dangerous to modern societies.” Continuing, he explained a truism, “beyond very minor levels, it’s been 100 years since one was [a danger]. There has NEVER been a seriously dangerous global pandemic in the post antibiotic era. There have barely been any that even warranted notice and pretty much no one living can recollect a shred of the last one … and the odds on bet appears to be that had we not swerved around Covid as though it were a tyrannosaur in the road instead of a squirrel, Covid would almost certainly not have been one either.”
Dr. Scott Atlas, M.D. – President Trump’s coronavirus advisor, among many other prestigious positions held in academia and elsewhere – recently came out with an op-ed in Newsweek magazine that backed up Bill Sardi’s claims from three years earlier, saying that among the biggest falsehoods of the “pandemic” were that “SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus has a far higher fatality rate than the flu by several orders of magnitude” and that “[e]veryone is at significant risk to die from this virus.” Dr. Atlas knows that the danger was grossly inflated.
A New Study Supports Bill’s View
A few short months after Bill’s Health Freedom News Winter 2019 article was published, Stat News published an article by Dr. John Ioannidis, M.D. titled “A fiasco in the making? As the coronavirus pandemic takes hold, we are making decisions without reliable data.” The title of the article speaks for itself but was bold in condemning the lack of any real data to support the hasty and over-reactive decisions being made by health authorities at the time.
By October 2020, Dr. Ioannidis had authored a peer-reviewed WHO bulletin estimating COVID-19’s Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) to be 0.23% worldwide. By late March 2021, the good doctor had revised his IFR estimate for COVID-19 down to 0.15%; and this peer-reviewed study was published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation. Slowly but surely, Dr. Ioannidis was closing in on the IFR position already long occupied by Bill Sardi. It’s nice to have company.
Finally, Dr. Ioannidis got even closer to Bill’s numbers when he led a team of researchers who identified eligible national seroprevalence studies covering 38 countries with pre-vaccination seroprevalence data. As the recently published research abstract noted, “Across 31 systematically identified national seroprevalence studies in the pre-vaccination era, the median infection fatality rate [IFR] of COVID-19 was estimated to be 0.035% for people aged 0-59 years people and 0.095% for those aged 0-69 years.” This is a much lower death rate for the non-elderly than previously stated by medical authorities.
Compare Bill Sardi’s and Dr. Ioannidis’ findings to what was previously the most-cited study on COVID-19’s IFR, which claimed the IFR to be 0.068% at 35-44 years, 0.23% at 45-54 years, and 0.75% at 55-64 years. At best, our lives have been in the hands of hopelessly incompetent doctors and hospitals. At worst, we have been lied to and many of us deceived by malicious actors who would rather see us dead than alive.
Cure Worse Than the Disease
From the beginning of the pandemic, the Federal and other governments acted to illegitimize, even demonize, safe and effective COVID-19 treatments, such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, and to persecute healthcare practitioners who promoted those effective treatments or other remedies, all in an effort to funnel the human populace into the vaccine killing fields.
Aided by the controlled mainstream media, the medical authorities were hugely successful in this effort. As of March 8, 2023, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that more than 269 million people, or 81.2% of the U.S. population, have been injected with at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Of that number, a bit more than 230 million, or 69.3%, have completed the primary COVID-19 doses. That is an incredible number of individuals injected with dangerous, experimental toxins and genome-altering substances!
But that is not all. The mandatory and illegal lockdowns imposed by medical fiat upon many Americans caused, according to several sources citing a 2022 National Bureau of Economic Research study as well as an Economist study, some 170,000-199,000 excess non-COVID-19 deaths among young Americans during the years 2021 and 2022. Michael P. Senger’s book Snake Oil cited similar figures.
So, it should be no surprise that when comparing the fatality rate from the COVID-19 experimental injections (and lockdowns) with the actual viral infection itself, the “cure” has been far deadlier than the disease. Leaving aside all of the thousands of anecdotal accounts of athletes, pilots, soldiers, and many others suddenly dropping dead, the statistics are frightening. Just looking at a 2022 U.S. Department of Defense chart of excess deaths, captured before the U.S. military realized the anti-vaccine value of the data and “corrected” it, reveals the enormity of the problem coming from the so-called vaccines and their accompanying ill-advised public-health policies.
As demonstrated recently throughout numerous other data sources, the overall mortality rates are indeed dramatically higher since the introduction of the mRNA and other “vaccines.” These figures can no longer be covered up and ignored.
In fact, in the November 27, 2022 issue of Clinical Research in Cardiology, a study conducted by Constantin Schwab and his team demonstrated that, as they diplomatically put it, “myocarditis can be a potentially lethal complication following mRNA-based anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination.” This was the researchers’ conclusion after autopsies were performed on persons who had died unexpectedly and within twenty days after a COVID-19 vaccination.
Bill Sardi was correct on so many COVID-19 issues that it would take a book and not an article to compile them all. However, as the year 2019 transitioned to 2020, Bill felt so strongly that COVID-19 was a non-threat to health and just another flash-in-the-pan story (such as with the Zika “virus”) that he tried to dissuade me from even publishing his article in Health Freedom News. I’m glad that I disregarded that advice and published his important story anyway.
“An Endless Series of Hobgoblins …”
Bill took heat from many people for his controversial position on the COVID-19 scamdemic, but he never backed down and continued to insist that the real danger and threat from COVID-19 was not the virus itself but the malicious and worthless treatments pushed by the government, mainstream medical community, hospitals, and health authorities. Tragically, while hospitalized himself, Bill died from those very same protocols.
The American philosopher and columnist H.L. Mencken aptly remarked that, “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” and “The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false face for the urge to rule it.” Bill Sardi certainly agreed, and his early, controversial position on COVID-19 has been vindicated and proven correct, as have so many other of his views.
