Covid-19 Facts October 2020 Updates


The material was originally published on www.swprs.org. All links and data were checked by SF Team.

The world continues to live in the conditions of the permanent media hysteria over the COVID-19 outbreak, with some sources even suggesting that a second wave of the spread of coronavirus is expected in the autumn. At the same time, more and more facts appear suggesting that the media hysteria over the current situation is no based on facts or even artificially created. While the coronavirus is an important factor influencing the situation around the world, the threat of the outbreak seems to be significantly overestimated. The July 2020 report can be found here. The June 2020 report can be found here. The August 2020 report can be found here.

“The only means to fight the plague is honesty.” (Albert Camus, 1947)


  1. Lethality: According to the latest immunological studies, the overall infection fatality rate (IFR) of covid-19 in the general population is about 0.1% to 0.5% in most countries, which is comparable to the medium influenza pandemics of 1957 and 1968.
  2. Treatment: For people at high risk or high exposure, early or prophylactic treatment is essential to prevent progression of the disease and avoid hospitalization.
  3. Age profile: The median age of covid deaths is over 80 years in most countries and only about 5% of the deceased had no serious preconditions. In contrast to pandemic influenza, the age and risk profile of covid is therefore comparable to normal mortality and increases it proportionally.
  4. Nursing homes: In many Western countries, up to two thirds of all covid deaths have occurred in nursing homes, which require targeted and humane protection. In some cases it is not clear whether the residents really died of covid or of weeks of stress and isolation.
  5. Symptoms: About 40% of all infected persons (including those over 70 years of age) show no symptoms, about 80% of all persons show at most mild symptoms, and about 95% show at most moderate symptoms and do not require hospitalization. The initial assumption that there was no immunity to the new coronavirus was not correct.
  6. Long covid: About 10% of symptomatic people report post-acute or “long” covid, i.e. symptoms that last for several weeks or months. This also affects younger and previously healthy people with a strong immune response.
  7. Transmission: The main routes of transmission of the virus are indoor aerosols and droplets produced when speaking or coughing. In contrast, outdoor aerosols as well as most object surfaces appear to play a minor role according to current knowledge.
  8. Masks: There is still little to no scientific evidence for the effectiveness of cloth face masks in the general population, and the introduction of mandatory masks couldn’t contain or slow the epidemic in most countries. If used improperly, masks may increase the risk of infection and in some cases may lead to respiratory problems.
  9. Children and schools: In contrast to influenza, the risk of disease and transmission in children is very low in the case of covid-19. There was and is therefore no medical reason for the closure of elementary school or for small classes.
  10. Contact Tracing: A WHO study of 2019 on measures against influenza pandemics concluded that from a medical perspective, contact tracing is “not recommended in any circumstances”. Contact tracing apps on cell phones have also failed in most countries.
  11. PCR tests: The virus test kits used internationally may in some cases produce false positive and false negative results or react to non-infectious virus fragments from a previous infection. In this regard, the cycle threshold value is an important parameter.
  12. Medical mismanagement: In the US and some other countries, fatal medical mismanagement of some covid patients occurred due to questionable financial incentives and inappropriate protocols. In most countries, covid mortality has since decreased significantly.
  13. Ventilators: The fear of a shortage of ventilators was unjustified. According to lung specialists, invasive ventilation (intubation) of covid patients, which was partly done out of fear of the virus, is often counterproductive and should be avoided if possible.
  14. Lockdowns: The WHO warned that lockdowns have caused a “terrible global catastrophe”. According to the UN, lockdowns may put the livelihood of 1.6 billion people at acute risk and may push an additional 150 million children into poverty. Unemployment, bankruptcies and psychological problems have reached record levels worldwide.
  15. Sweden: In Sweden, total mortality without lockdown has so far been in the range of a strong influenza season. 70% of Swedish deaths occurred in nursing homes that were not protected quickly enough. The median age of the Swedish covid deaths is 84 years.
  16. Media: The often unprofessional reporting of many media maximized fear and panic in the population and led to a massive overestimation of the lethality and mortality of covid. Some media even used manipulative pictures and videos to dramatize the situation.
  17. False reports: Many media reports of young and healthy people dying from Covid-19 turned out to be false: many of these young people either did not die from Covid-19, they had already been seriously ill (e.g. from undiagnosed leukemia), or they were in fact 109 instead of 9 years old.
  18. Vaccines: Several medical experts described express coronavirus vaccines as risky. Indeed, the vaccine against the so-called swine flu of 2009, for example, led to cases of severe neurological damage and lawsuits in the millions. In the testing of new coronavirus vaccines, too, serious complications and failures have already been reported.
  19. Surveillance: NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden warned that the covid pandemic may be used to permanently expand global surveillance. In several parts of the world, the population is being monitored by drones and facing serious police overreach during lockdowns.
  20. Virus origin: The origin of the new corona virus remains unclear, but the best evidence currently points to a covid-like pneumonia incident in a Chinese mine in 2012, whose virus samples were collected, stored and researched by the Virology Institute in Wuhan (WIV).

Medical updates

  • Covid lethality: Most Western countries report a covid lethality (IFR) of about 0.3% in the general population (excluding nursing homes). The IFR may be even lower as antibody tests appear to miss about half of all infections. The IFR is higher if there was a local collapse of health care or elderly care. Countries with a younger population report lower IFRs: India reports about 0.1%, African countries report about 0.01%. Read more.
  • Why covid is a “strange pandemic”: Why does covid-19 appear to be a somewhat strange pandemic? It is because of the covid-19 mortality profile, which is almost identical to natural mortality. But this doesn’t mean covid is just a “casedemic”. Read more.
  • Face masks: Evidence from around the world indicates that cloth face masks used by the general population have little to no impact on coronavirus infection rates. The WHO study on face masks and social distancing turned out to be seriously flawed.
  • Treatment of covid-19: Early or prophylactic treatment of covid-19 is essential to prevent progression of the disease. New studies confirm the effectiveness of zinc, vitamin D, bromhexine and malaria drug HCQ in early treatment of high-risk patients. Read more.
  • Disease mechanisms: Several new studies show that (severe) covid is first and foremost a cardiovascular disease that causes thrombosis (blood clotting) and lung embolism by damaging the blood vessels. This explains the age and risk profile of covid-19 mortality.
  • Post-acute (“long”) covid: About 10% of symptomatic people, including young and healthy people, develop “long covid” that may last for several weeks or months. Of particular concern is the impact of the new coronavirus on the heart muscle. Read more.
  • PCR tests: As previously reported, many of the people testing positive may not carry infectious virus. A new analysis now confirms that in the US, up to 90% of positive PCR tests may have been “false positives” detecting non-infectious virus fragments.
  • Origin of the new coronavirus: Evidence is increasing that the new coronavirus may be linked to a covid-like pneumonia incident in a Chinese mine back in 2012. Read more.
  • Children: The risk of transmission and disease in children continues to be extremely low. The following chart shows cases and hospitalizations of children in Florida.

Country profiles

In large parts of previously locked-down Europe as well as in parts of the US, antibody values are still rather low and the risk of a renewed increase in coronavirus infections and disease is therefore high. Read our latest covid-19 country profiles:

  • USA: Several short regional waves, mortality comparable to 1957/68 flu pandemics
  • Germany: No excess mortality so far, but still very low antibody values
  • Sweden: No lockdown, no masks, mortality comparable to strong flu wave.
  • Japan: No lockdown, but by far lowest mortality among G8 countries.
  • Australia and New Zealand: Last Western countries following a zero-covid strategy
  • Africa and Latin America: Lowest and highest covid mortality in the world.
  • Belarus: Very low covid mortality despite no lockdown; unique demographics.
  • Belgium: Very high mortality; 66% of deaths occurred in nursing homes.
  • Italy: Huge differences between northern and southern Italy.
  • Nembro (Italy): The hardest hit place in Europe. What happened?
  • Switzerland: Low mortality in spring, but very low antibody values.

Political updates

  • IMF, World Bank: Covid lockdowns and economic recession may drag 100 million people into extreme poverty and set back poor nations by ten years.
  • Professor Mark Woolhouse (UK): Lockdown will come to be seen as a “monumental mistake on a global scale” and must never happen again. The equivalent of 400 million jobs have been lost world-wide, 13 million in the U.S. alone.
  • Australia: Extreme lockdown in Melbourne (Victoria) – more suicides than covid deaths.
  • Germany: German police may have staged a run on the federal parliament in order to discredit a peaceful protest by about 100,000 people against political corona measures.
  • Contact tracing: Back in May, Google and Apple implemented a “contact tracing” interface into three billion mobile phones. In early September, they integrated it even deeper into their operating systems, enabling contact tracing without an official app and on a global scale. From a medical perspective, there is still no evidence that “contact tracing” reduces the covid infection rate. Swiss IT professor Serge Vaudenay warned that the Google-Apple interface is not transparent and may record every single contact.
  • Vaccines: Covid vaccine manufacturers have received a liability waiver in most countries. The Oxford vaccine trial has been suspended after a serious neurological adverse event occurred. A Belgian journalist moreover reported temporary fever, severe chest pain, “glowing hot legs” and loss of all feeling in his fingers after receiving another covid vaccine.

Fog of War

I’d like to know people’s opinions on the seeming fact that the US outsourced the development of this ” virus ” to labs in China. Are we to believe the Chinese government had no idea of what was going on?




It’s common knowledge many countries have military labs for researching these bioweapons. What it comes in my mind right now is the antrax emails sent from a US lab after 9/11, fugitive Nord Korean soldiers were found out vaccinated for antrax sugestink they have it as a weapon, China feared USSR and made this labs to compensate for lack of nukes… It’s also official USA sent lots of money to these Chinese labs. So yeah, could be escaped from the lab. But doubt they intentionally planted it.

Fog of War

Thanks for the non-answer. To repeat , Is it plausible the Chinese government didn’t know what the US government was toying with in Chinese labs in China ? They didn’t suspect it might be a setup or that an accident might happen ? Does the US government allow other nations to do this kind of research in the US ?


No, is not plausible. Most of the scientists working there are Chinese and informators for the Communist Party.

Fog of War

We agree then, which makes this whole Covid scam even more suspicious then it even was before. It also makes China’s rapid ” response ” and quick ” recovery ” suspect. Not to mention that out of all the nations they have benefited most economically from this scamdemic . I’m starting to wonder whether China and ZioAmerica are as antagonistic to each other as they seem. Something’s rotten in Denmark.


Very good points, observable was China’s “lock down” was different. Wuhan the city, was ‘locked in’, but the people could still work. Hubei Province, was ‘locked in’ but the people kept working. While there was a complete “lock down” it was well defined for a short term

johnny rotten

This insanely false pandemic has turned into a weapon of mass control, in other words a health fascism.

Alejandro Bonifacio

maybe sow chaos and civil wars worldwide, we are lots of humans so the elites have planed this to destroy the so-called “untermenschen”


With an emphasis on fascism. The question is do the criminally insane zioblock miscreants running it want to implement a fascist western society to compete more effectively with the SCO. Or is their end game to use it for a post human era omnicide plan to kill every man, woman and child on the planet? As Jones’ describes in the post human era end game that he documents with their social and political engineering studies. Like Jew Bloomberg’s and Zionist Gates’ Event 201 pandemic exercise that I’ve screenshoted and linked to above. That preceded the scamdemic roll out 3 months before it began.

Tommy Jensen

THE OVERALL PICTURE Before picking in fragments of the Corona scam be aware of the overall basic facts:

– A campaign/war with influence on a global scale needs to be planned decade(s) in advance. – The Swine flue scam in 2009 succeeded to suck $15 billion from public coffers before it was stopped. – The Wall Street cabale who run these scams are now so rich they can run them on a global scale. – Be aware Corona masks were ordered to China in 2015. Can be found on Internet by search. – Be aware Corona viruses patents have been taking out in Oxford since 2003. Also found on internet.

When looking at videos like this one, remember to take out FACTS and not who and perception.

When you have mentally accepted this is a global fraud by a little group of global $billionaires who threaten and buy people all the way down in the supply train, then realize this mental acceptance is crucial for them and you. They rely on human cowardice, greed and fear. Therefore the media is rigged with fake news and threats, because they fear you will realize they are fraudsters and punish them.

Therefore its the most vulnerable spot we can hit them. By mentally overcome our cowardice and accept the hard reality. When you have accepted the reality, that we are led by the nose by gangsters and media fakes, their scam hot air balloon will collapse and they will stand naked. Its over.

And one final thing. NOBODY “must” or will arrive and save you. Dont hope!

Trump has already helpeda lot in the fight against the plandemic.. HCQ.. Getting Fauci exposed.. However he cant lift all the shit alone indeed


Trump deliberately dropped the ball like everyone else and ran with the scam. The first thing that he should have done was issue an executive order requiring every death certificate be required to meet credible standards that anyone who died with the virus died of it as a significant contributing factor. And if it wasn’t a significant contributing factor that the death certificate was prevented from having the virus listed as a cause of death. That would have prevented the crisis from escalating. The other thing that he should have done was issue an order preventing lockdowns if they weren’t justified.


Message: Hello, the most important fact is missed by everybody except Didier Raoult (see following link), cov2 dissapeared around may 2020 with the end of the bell shaped death curve, since then 4 successive virus iteration (mutation) is what keeps new cases appearing (pcr cant differentite them from cov2).. https://mobile.agoravox.tv/actualites/sante/article/pr-didier-raoult-evolution-de-l-87060





“The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH) is part of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. As the first independent, degree-granting institution for research in epidemiology and training in public health”

– Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health –






I’ve said from the beginning that the scamdemic looked like a JWO takedown of the global economy in an effort to increase political, economic and social control. To counter the NATO, Israel, GCC zioblock’s loss of economic and military supremacy to Russia, China, and the SCO. I haven’t changed my view on that.

What has changed is the JWO post human era omnicide plan that Jones’ describes as their endgame to kill every man, woman and child on the planet. And replace our species with a technocracy designer slave species caste system that the JWO rules over as immortal “gods”.


The article neglected to mention the most important part of the entire scam. That the governments with the high death numbers are in your face committing massive fraud by over reporting the deaths by up to 1,000%. Everyone dying with the virus is being counted as a virus death. When in only about 10% of the cases was it a significant causal factor of death.

Which makes it a relatively minor disease even in the worst hit places engaged in fraudulent death statistics. It’s a scam for governments and the corporate elite to increase control over the wreckage that they deliberately created.


Another issue that the article doesn’t address is the extent of blame for the scamdemic that the msm is responsible for. The msm programed the virus story so that the coverage was excessively extreme in the volume and fraudulent nature of the coverage given to it. This was on purpose to stoke the fear and support the lockdowns and restrictions.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
