At a Ford Government livestream, Dr. Yaffi put forward three predictions about a second wave.
Diverge Columnist, Greg Staley combats those predictions saying:
“Mr. Ford wants Ontarians to focus only on prediction 1 – then he wants you to forget its not based in hard facts but is a modelling prediction.
Forget the other two possibilities, Premier Ford cares so much about our safety that even though the models used predict two other possible outcomes, he is willing to completely ignore that data for your safety.
Why is it that Ford and governments all around the world keep pointing to models?
Is it possible they point to models precisely because they aren’t accurate?
Is it possible that they prefer models to real data because models allow them to fear-monger the masses?
According to @AntennaData on Twitter, Netflix US has experienced five times the amount of subscription cancellations in five days that they would normally see in just one month due to the ‘Cuties’ backlash.
I can personally confirm stories of people who aren’t fit to wear a mask, but still dawn the mask. Why not just get an exemption you say? The toxic environment that has been created around the mandatory mask has many too afraid to speak out. They don’t want to seek an exemption they are able to obtain out of fear of the reprobation that will come with exposing their naked face to the masses.
Diverge Writer, Greg Staley deep dives into various COVID topics arguing Who cares what the models say Doug!
“Let us remind you that it is only models that declare asymptomatic people can spread the virus at a high and efficient rate, while in reality the actual known studies show asymptomatic spread to be very rare — at less than five to 10 per cent spread.
Now we must ask dare I say it, a logical question in regards to this — Why is our government focusing in on the smallest part responsible for public outbreaks of COVID and other respiratory illnesses?
