Once again, the CDC must correct a major mistake. We have been reporting on false models and inflated numbers which provide the ammo for the fear pornographers and panic inciters.

Wuhan Virus Watch: CDC Says Coronavirus Infection Fatality Rate Could be as Low as 0.26%
By: Leslie Eastman, Legal Insurrection, May 25, 202:
Study shows that patients no longer infectious after 11 days. Wuhan lab admits to having 3 live strains of bat coronavirus. Trump suspends travel from Brazil. 9th Circuit backs CA Gov. Newsom’s orders keeping churches closed.
Today’s update features news from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
It appears the agency is, once again, adjusting estimates based on real numbers….in this case, as it relates to the infection fatality rate, which is more than ten times lower than initially assessed.
New estimates released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate that COVID-19 may have an infection fatality rate as low as 0.26%, a number that is double the seasonal flu but significantly lower than earlier estimates.
Determining the infection fatality rate of the illness has been a critical goal of scientists around the world since the discovery of the disease in late November. Infectious disease experts were shocked at the end of last year and into 2020 at both how quickly the disease spread and how many of those who became ill ultimately died.
In early February, modelers at Imperial College London estimated that around 1% of infections of COVID-19 would ultimately result in death. That number, which is about 10 times higher than the seasonal flu, shocked much of the world, including the U.K. government and most of the 50 U.S. state governments, into shutting down major swaths of their economies and placing many of their citizens under strict stay-at-home orders.
Study shows that coronavirus patients no longer infectious after 11 days
Another study offers a more robust understanding of how long a person could remain infectious.
Coronavirus patients stop being infectious 11 days after contracting the disease — even if they still test positive for COVID-19 on day 12, according to a new study.
Singaporean infectious disease experts said they found that the virus “could not be isolated or cultured after day 11 of illness,” according to a joint paper from the country’s National Center for Infectious Diseases and the Academy of Medicine.
Researchers looked at the “viral load” in 73 COVID-19 patients to measure whether the bug was still viable and could infect anyone.
“Based on the accumulated data since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the infectious period of [coronavirus] in symptomatic individuals may begin around 2 days before the onset of symptoms, and persists for about 7-10 days after the onset of symptoms,” the researchers wrote.
