Alex Jones “The Conspiracy Theorist” announced 3 weeks ago (middle of August 2023), that he had a very creditable informant telling him that we are going to be back in full covid crisis by middle of September. This set the internet ablaze with the usual horns telling everyone, this is just a conspiracy.
Fast forward to today (9/7/2023) and COVID is ramping up with Jill Biden supposedly contracting it, even though she is fully vaccinated and boosted. So Alex appears to have been right that they are going to push the fear and chaos with the disease.
So I figured I would write about it to remind everyone how those screaming run, were wrong and the damage they caused the economy doing so.
The emergence of COVID-19 in late 2019 sent shockwaves across the globe. As the virus spread rapidly from its epicenter in Wuhan, China, to various corners of the world, fear gripped communities and governments alike. The early days of the pandemic were marked by uncertainty, misinformation, and panic. One of the most alarming aspects of this period was the fear-driven narrative that hospitals would be overwhelmed by a surge of patients. In this blog, we’ll explore how the beginning of COVID-19 was indeed fear-driven, and we’ll examine why, in many places, emergency beds never filled up as initially feared.
When COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) in March 2020, fear quickly took hold. Media coverage of overwhelmed hospitals in Italy and other hard-hit areas added to the sense of impending crisis. People began to envision a scenario in which hospitals around the world would be inundated with patients, creating a healthcare catastrophe of unprecedented proportions.
Fear was amplified by the lack of knowledge about the virus and its transmission, the absence of a vaccine or effective treatment, and the grim reports of high mortality rates, especially among the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. This fear-driven environment led to panic buying, lockdowns, and strained healthcare systems as everyone sought to prepare for the worst.
Flattening the Curve
In response to these fears, governments implemented strict measures to “flatten the curve.” Lockdowns, social distancing, mask mandates, and travel restrictions were enforced to slow the spread of the virus and prevent hospitals from becoming overwhelmed. The goal was to reduce the peak number of cases, ensuring that hospitals had enough capacity to treat patients without reaching a breaking point.
As the pandemic progressed, it became evident that while some hospitals in heavily affected regions did face significant challenges, the initial fear of a global healthcare collapse did not materialize.
