A noticeable decline in new Covid-19 cases and deaths in America

Someone commented that the figures of covid cases and deaths from America are unreliable and have been “fudged” to be in favor of one political party.

I do not agree.

The figures at the national level are compiled from the statistics recorded at the state level. Even if the figures in some states might be “fudged”, the different states are run by different political parties. I cannot see them acting in collaboration to “fudge” the figures for any political purpose.

I believe that the figures reflect truly what is happening in the country.

In recent weeks, the new cases and deaths have started to come down drastically.

This favorable trend is probably caused by the following factors:

* wearing of masks as encourage by the Biden administration
* a significant number of people have now been vaccinated
* the weather is getting warmer (which makes the virus milder).

    LONDON (REUTERS) – Rich countries are on course to have over a billion more doses of Covid-19 vaccines than they need, leaving poorer nations scrambling for leftover supplies as the world seeks to curb the coronavirus pandemic, a report by anti-poverty campaigners found on Friday (Feb 19).

    In an analysis of current supply deals for Covid-19 vaccines, the ONE Campaign said wealthy countries, such as the United States and Britain, should share the excess doses to “supercharge” a fully global response to the pandemic.

    The advocacy group, which campaigns against poverty and preventable diseases, said a failure to do so would deny billions of people essential protection from the Covid-19-causing virus and likely prolong the pandemic.

    The report looked specifically at contracts with the five leading Covid-19 vaccine makers – Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Oxford-AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, and Novavax.

    It found that to date, the United States, the European Union, Britain, Australia, Canada and Japan have already secured more than 3 billion doses – over a billion more than the 2.06 billion needed to give their entire populations two doses.

    “This huge excess is the embodiment of vaccine nationalism,” said Jenny Ottenhoff, ONE Campaign’s senior director for policy.

    “Rich countries understandably hedged their bets on vaccines early in the pandemic but with these bets paying off in spades, a massive course correction is needed if we are going to protect billions of people around the world,” she added.

    The analysis found that, along with other Covid-19 vaccine supplies procured by the global Covax vaccine-sharing plan and in bilateral deals, the excess rich-country doses would go a long way to protecting vulnerable people in poorer countries.

    This would significantly reduce the risk of deaths from Covid-19, it said, as well as limiting the chances of new virus variants emerging and accelerating an end to the pandemic…”Unquote .

    Response : “Rich nations stockpiling a billion more Covid-19 shots than needed: Report…”

    So Singapore is not a rich country as it doesn’t stockpile enough ? Or is the government too stingy to stockpile ?

    At this time Singapore is injecting Pfizer or Moderna vaccine into our population,shouldn’t the government also at the same time do checking for local transmission ? Say for example Tanjong pagar area do vaccine injection,then Punggol area can start covid testing for local transmission .Simultaneous actions will save a lot of time .

  • Unbelievable:

    Vaccination is still not up to speed and interrupted by the winter storm. The drop in numbers is probably because most people are staying indoors. Unlike in SG over the CNY, family visitations by different groups and dinner gatherings at home and in restaurants (all with masks removed), yet there are so few cases of community spread. Statistics, got fudged or not? LOL!

    SG should be able to afford Pfizer and Moderna vaccines at no charge to all citizens and PRs. All others pay cost or employers can pay for them. Fair?

  • TKL believes ...:

    Mr Tan believes that US data cannot be fudged because different states controlled by different parties.

    Mr Tan, what do you believe about Singapore data? Single state totally controlled by one party?

    There is no lack of CoVID-19 people ready to come to $G and keep the numbers up.

    According to TOC, the no-NS-required minister Puthucheary confirm and doubl-confirm that the WEF coming to $G will NOT require SHN.

    @ TKL

    IT IS VERY MUCH COLDER IN USA and Europe, where most of the infections is recently taking place, this year, so I can fathom your factual contradiction and illogical derivation of a “milder” virus.

    TKL:the weather is getting warmer (which makes the virus milder).

    On the contrary, the new variants are more vicious and resistant to current vaccinations.

    Science does NOT even know the effectiveness or imagined effectiveness of vaccine administered – some people already got second dose BUT

    Researchers urge delaying Pfizer vaccines second dose as first highly effective.

    https://sg.yahoo.com/news/researchers-urge-delay-administering-pfizer-091321666.html

    This directly contradicted the Israeli data-feedback that 67% WATERFALL DECLINE in efficacy rate within initial weeks of first dose.

    This also CONTRADICTED science mystery (AND TERRIFIED TOO) why India does NOT got escalating mutation of variants and fatalities rate DESPITE MOST DO NOT RETURN FOR THE SECOND DOSE.

    @ TKL, Please read this

    Everyone should worry that Indians aren’t taking their second vaccine doses

    https://qz.com/india/1973038/indian-healthcare-workers-are-missing-second-covid-vaccine-doses/?utm_source=YPL

    Why?

    qz.com :This is a problem—and not just for India. If people skip their second doses, or even if they delay the doses beyond the recommended time frame, it gives the coronavirus more chances to re-arm itself—to mutate by chance in a way that could lend it high resistance to the vaccines we have.

    If that mutant, resistant form spreads, a year’s worth of vaccine research could be overwhelmed by a fierce new wave of disease.

    This scenario echoes another that has already transpired with tuberculosis. India has become a cradle for strains of TB bacteria that can hold out against antibiotics; in 2019, the country registered the highest number of drug-resistant TB cases in the world. Among the reasons that bacteria grow inured to antibiotics…

    Right now, POLITICAL EXPEDIENCY and economic concerns OVER-RIDE SCIENCE data (absent and science true ignorance/confusion) and decision on mass innoculation hinged on “first light” of available options rather than data-driven.

    IT MAY WELL BE THAT MASS VACCINATION IS WILD GOOSE CHASE i.e. the truncation of tranmission allows the virus and its variants to die a natural death extinction.

    OR IT REMAINS ENDEMIC of periodic eruptions – uncontainable – vaccination or no vaccination notwithstanding.

    WE SIMPLY DON’T KNOW as yet.

    @ TKL

    I STUMBLED UPON this article read in a global financial website. Surprise to find it there to be featured. The author calls those vaccine proponents in harsh languate (not my vocabulary though) as “as*holes and pr*icks that want to have us all jabbed with their genocidal concoctions”.

    And he denounced those inoculations as “EXPERIMENTAL genetic modifying concoctions of pure poison (Again, never call them ‘VACCINES’ for they are absolutely NOT!).

    Why Antibody Enhancement Of Disease (ADE) Might Be A Ticking Time Bomb!

    http://northerntruthseeker.blogspot.com/2021/02/why-antibody-enhancement-of-disease-ade.html

    I know Dr Fauci denied this KNOWN RISK in vaccination. BUT WITHOUT THE PASSAGE OF TIME AND DATA TESTED (of eventually and essentially of future mortal events or its complications), how do Dr. Fauci knows as of NOW?

    In my informed opinion, ADE cannot be ruled out at this stage, THE VACCINE COMES OUT TOO FAST of risks safety testing – as pointed out in the facebook of distinguished medical practitioner – Professor Dr Delores Cahill.

    https://www.facebook.com/ifpdolorescahill/

    The writer in northernseeker.blogspot.com is NO INSANE GIBBERISH LUNATICS either. He quoted credible research and respected medical practitioners as well.

    https://fromrome.info/2021/02/14/dr-tenpenny-the-mrna-vaccines-will-cause-massive-deaths-after-reception/

    THEY RISK THEIR PRACTITONER CERTIFICATES to come out speaking their minds.

    Politicians/politics & vaccine makers tell too much lies/half-a*sed fudged statistics and hide too much information from public eye and minds.

    WHO CAN YOU TRUSTS BETTER?

    No fudging of COVID cases in the US? TKL did not conduct sufficient investigation and apply critical thinking. COVID cases in the US are fudged for political and self-serving purposes. Did you not see it in the US elections? Democrats used crises for power and money. They stole the election.

    Obama
    69 million votes
    873 counties
    Won Ohio and Florida

    Trump
    74 million votes
    2,497 counties
    Won Ohio and Florida

    Biden
    81 million votes
    477 counties
    LOST Ohio and Florida

    Source: https://www.newsmaxtv.com/Shows/Greg-Kelly-Reports/vid/1_d3ibj6aq

    How could someone win by running a campaign from the basement and could not even fill a parking lot? “Won” in four cities through fraud? Someone so lacks mental capacity and incoherent (https://citizenfreepress.com/breaking/sky-news-australia-mentions-what-u-s-media-will-not/).

    Please TKL do not report fake news.

    @ WP Voter

    NOT SURE if your comment is FRAUDULENTLY OR HONESTLY UNCLEAR.

    WP Voter: They stole the election.

    States governed by Republicans conducted the elections in disputed states. Do they “conspire” with Democrats WORKING VERY HARD to “defeat” themselves for the benefits of their political opponents?

    A bit too stupid of conviction claims, isn’t it?

    The Judiciary in DIFFERENT STATES found no evidence of fraud including some of Trump’s preferred appointees.

    And best of all, post-election, the Republican bites each other and the Democrats watching spectators sports.

    And still is.

    Sensational U-tube presentations belong to the liar’s den tribes to fool those gullible with low intellect – at least this is true, in some cases, in finance.
