Dr Knut Wittkowski Debunks the Coronavirus Frenzy

“For all respiratory epidemics, if you leave it alone, it comes for two weeks, it peaks, and it goes for two weeks, and it’s gone. There are no indications that anything is different from the regular flue, maybe a bit worse….”  – Dr Knut Wittkowski

Professor Wittkowski, PhD, for twenty years head of The Rockefeller University’s Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design, says that social distancing and lockdown is the absolutely worst way to deal with an airborne respiratory virus.

Further, he offers data to show that China and South Korea had already reached their peak number of cases when they instituted their containment measures.  In other words, nature had already achieved, or nearly achieved, herd immunity.

Here are some highlights from the interview:

“Children do very well with these diseases,” says Dr Wittkowski. “They should be continuing to go to school and infecting each other. That contributes to herd immunity. This means that after 4 weeks – at the most – the elderly people could start joining their families, because then the virus would have been extinguished.

“With all respiratory diseases, the only thing that stops the disease is herd immunity. About 80 percent of the people need to have had contact with the virus, and the majority of them won’t even know they were infected, or they had very, very mild symptoms, especially if they are children.”

“So it’s very important to keep the schools open and the kids mingling. Elderly people should be separated and nursing homes should be closed during that time.”

“For all respiratory epidemics, if you leave it alone, it comes for two weeks, it peaks, and it goes for two weeks, and it’s gone.”

“I’m not paid by the government, so I’m entitled to actually do science.”

When it comes to the United States, if there had been no intervention, the epidemic would be over, like every other respiratory disease epidemic.

Two percent of all symptomatic cases will die. That is about 500 people per day. That will happen over four weeks, so that could be as high as 10,000 people. That compares to the normal number of deaths during the flu season. In the United States we have about 35,000 deaths during the flu season every year, so it would be part of the normal situation during the flu season. So even including the corona deaths, it’s about the same as the regular flu season.

Why are the hospitals so overwhelmed with coronavirus patients? Because funding for hospitals, as everyone knows, has been cut down recently, so they now have to run their emergency plans.

“I don’t know where these numbers (the estimate of 200,000 deaths) are coming from.”

“I don’t know where these numbers (the estimate of 200,000 deaths) are coming from. There are no indications that this flu is fundamentally different from every other flu. We know what happened in China, we know what happened in South Korea, we know what happened, what is happening in Europe, there are no indications that anything is different from the regular flue, maybe a bit worse…could be.”

“For a respiratory disease, the flu ends in the springtime when people spend more time outdoors, because outdoors, the virus cannot easily spread. That is a form of containment!”

“Staying indoors keeps the virus healthy.” “Going outdoors is what stops every respiratory disease.”

Thanks to Penelope for this video

“Amazing video interview,” says Penelope. “If it becomes known has the power to force abandonment of the destructive lock down. Dr. Wittkowski is delightfully outspoken, and the interviewer asks good questions.”

“I thought I had a good grasp of our experience with the virus, but I learned a LOT from this man.”

    This assumes that all people will be expended at the same time and that most cases are asymptomatic which is not true. No respiratory virus can disappear in four weeks unless you infect the whole population at once. After 4 weeks people recovered or died and with 300M you have about 150M 40-60 year olds of which 90 % is symptomatic ( 135M ), and if 2 % die , it’s 2.7 M in four weeks

      Sorry for the autocorrect. I meant Infected not expended

      You misrepresent what he said. He sais that herd immunity generally takes places in about 4 weeks, resulting in 80% of people. Asymptomatic cases are the result of those who actually have the immunity already, acquired either through the current stage, or from an earlier exposure to a previous coronavirus, since these come around regularly. The immunity usually lasts for a 2 year period for most people, since this type of virus evolves slowly (as also noted by Johns Hopkins researchers), and people tend to get “bad” colds every second year. That’s what I find in my own experience as well. So, more a complex view would account for people being at different stages in such a 2-year period, with some asymptomatic, some getting mild symptoms, some getting bad colds.

      I strongly advise everyone to watch the video, more than once if necessary, and think for themselves. And make sure you haven’t misunderstood Dr. Wittkowski.
