00:00 Prof. Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, you are infectious disease specialist
00:06 You are one of the most highly cited medical research scientists of Germany.
00:11 Today, we will talk about the Corona Virus
00:14 This virus spreads fear over the whole world.
00:17 Also in Germany, a state of emergency imposes extreme restrictions
00:20 What are Corona viruses?
00:24 These viruses co-exist with humans and animals around the globe.
00:33 The viruses are the cause of very common, minor diseases of the respiratory tract.
00:39 Very often, infections remain subclinical without symptoms.
00:45 Severe courses occur almost exclusively in elderly patients with other underlying illnesses, in particular of lung and heart.
00:52 Now, however, a new member is on stage spreading fear around the world.
01:00 The new COVID-19 originated in China and spread rapidly.
01:06 It appeared to be accompanied by an unexpectedly high number of deaths.
01:12 Alarming reports followed from Northern Italy that concurred with the Chinese experience.
01:18 It must, however, be pointed out
01:22 that the large majority of other outbreaks in other parts of the world appeared to display lower apparent mortality rates
01:28 and such high numbers of 4, 5 or 6% were not reached.
01:34 For example in South Korea
01:37 the apparent mortality rate was 1%.
01:43 Why “APPARENT” mortality rate?
01:46 When patients concurrently have other illnesses,
01:49 an infectious agent must not be held solely
01:52 responsible for a lethal outcome.
02:00 This happens for COVID-19, but such a conclusion is false and gives rise to the danger
02:06 that other important factors are overlooked.
02:09 Different mortality rates may well be due to different local situations.
02:16 For example,
02:19 what does Northern Italy have in common with China
02:26 Horrific air pollution
02:28 The highest in the world
02:34 Northern Italy is the China of Europe.
02:37 The lungs of inhabitants there have been chronically injured over decades
02:43 and for this simple reason the situation may not be comparable to elsewhere.
02:49 What about Germany
02:51 – the virus has also spread to us.
02:57 It is spreading in Germany.
03:05 One most important consequence being that we now have sufficient data to gauge the true danger of the virus in our country.
03:15 Which is what the german experts and politicians have done.
03:18 The highest alert level has been proclaimed
03:21 and extreme preventive measures have been installed in the desperate attempt to retard spread of the virus.
03:24 Yes, and this is the incredible tragedy.
03:28 Because all these adopted measures are actually senseless.
03:36 the pressing questions are answered.
03:40 The first one:
03:42 Does the virus generally cause more serious illness also in young people
03:45 and kill patients who have no concurring illness?
03:50 This would make them different from other everyday Corona viruses of the world.
03:57 The answer is clearly: NO!
04:00 We have 10 000 infections reported (18.03.2020)
04:06 99,5 % have no or only mild symptoms
04:13 Here, we already see
04:16 that it is false
04:21 and dangerous
04:24 to talk about of 10 000 “patients”!
04:27 They are not seriously ill.
04:29 “Infection” is not identical with “disease”.
04:33 Of 10 000 infected people
04:36 only 50-60 were severly ill.
04:38 And 30 died
04:41 to the present day.
04:42 In 30 days.
04:44 So we have a apparent mortality rate of 1 COVID-19 positive case per day.
04:53 Up to now.
04:55 The looming worst case scenario
04:58 that must be prevented according to the authorities:
05:01 Then we would have 1.000 000 cases
05:06 and maybe 3.000 death
05:09 in 100 days.
05:12 This would mean 30 deaths a day.
05:16 The aim is to prevent this “worst case scenario”
05:21 All current emergency measures aim to slow down virus spread to save lives.
05:36 But, we are looking already at the worst case szenario – with 30 death a day.
05:43 30 death a day may sound like very much.
05:48 Keep in mind that every day, 2200 over 65-year old depart from us, here in Germany
06:01 Keep in mind that many of these carry common Corona viruses. How many are not known, so let us just assume 1% (which is surely too low).
06:10 This would translate to 22 a day.
06:17 And these die every day.
06:20 The only difference is that we do not talk about “Corona-deaths”.
06:26 Because we know that these viruses are normally not the major cause of death
06:32 So, what we are doing in the moment is to prevent that these 22 are replaced by 30 COVID-19 positive patients.
06:40 This is what is happening.
06:44 We are afraid, that 1.000 000 infections with the new virus will lead to 30 deaths a day over the next 100 days.
06:58 But we do not realize that 20, or 30 or 40 or 100 patients positive for normal Corona viruses are already dying every day.
07:13 07:16 To avoid that COVID-19 enters the scene instead of the other Corona viruses, extreme measures are installed.
07:21 So, what do you think about all these measures?
07:23 They are grotesque, absurd and very dangerous.
07:29 Our elderly citizens have every right to make efforts not to belong to the 2200 that daily embark on their last journey.
07:49 Social contacts and social events, theater and music, travel and holiday recreation, sports and hobbies, etc., etc. all help to prolong their stay on earth.
08:05 The life expectancy of millions is being shortened.
08:19 The horrifying impact on world economy threatens the existence of countless people.
08:31 The consequences on medical care are profound.
08:35 Already, services to patients who are in need are reduced, operations cancelled, practices empty, hospital personnel dwindling.
08:55 All this will impact profoundly on our whole society.
09:01 I can only say:
09:03 All these measures are leading to self-destruction and collective suicide because of nothing but a spook.
