COVID-19 case count in Jefferson County rises to 141

Posted

The number of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 in Jefferson County climbed to 141, officials with Jefferson County Public Health reported Friday afternoon.

Two additional cases of COVID were reported Nov. 20. Health officials said two Port Townsend men in their 20s had been infected with the coronavirus.

County health officials reported that 86 patients in Jefferson County have recovered from COVID-19 and are no longer hospitalized.

No deaths in Jefferson County have been linked to the coronavirus.

According to Jefferson County Public Health, a total of 12,218 patients have been tested for the coronavirus since the start of the pandemic, and 12.019 have tested negative.

Test results are still pending for 58 people.

On Friday, a total of 31 patients were in isolation.

The two week COVID-19 case rate (per 100,000 population) was at 100.31 Friday.

So far, 69 COVID cases have been found in Port Townsend residents; 57 in mid-county residents; and 15 in south county (Quilcene, Brinnon, and West Jefferson).

Most of the confirmed cases of the coronavirus in Jefferson County — 72 so far — have been found in men. Sixty-nine women who live in the county have tested positive for COVID-19 through Friday.

There's real concern that COVID-19 case numbers being used to justify renewed lockdowns may be inflated.

Look at the above chart from Harvard epidemiologist Dr. Mina, who was featured in the Aug. 29 NYTimes article that revealed PCR coronavirus testing has 90% false positives when amplified by the 40 Ct cycle threshold specified by the CDC.

Dr. Mina spotlights a chart from an important Oct. 24 paper showing zero viable virus once Ct exceeds 32. Likewise Dr. Fauci said on Jul. 16, "if you get a cycle threshold of 35 or more, chances of it being replication competent is minuscule... it's just dead nucleotides, period." And now a Nov. 12 JAMA paper found 97% false positives, all with Ct of 30 or higher.

This problem may be compounded by cross-reactivity. The cold and flu season involves different strains of influenza and coronaviruses that increase high-threshold PCR false positivity even further, which may explain why cases go up in winter.

What is happening with deaths and hospitalizations? The Nov. 14 NYTimes says "the virus has killed more than 1,000 Americans a day in the past week... Twice this past week, there have been more than 1,400 deaths reported in a single day."

https://www.nytimes.com/live/2020/11/14/world/covid19-coronavirus-updates

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/14/us/coronavirus-deaths.html

But the CDC reveals only 240 of these "deaths reported" occurred during the week ending Nov. 14 (expecting 4,668 for the week including future reports). The rest occurred weeks or months in the past (if truly caused by COVID-19 given PCR false positives). CDC data shows deaths generally declining since Aug. 1. with a bump starting mid-October that seems to have leveled out and begun dropping.

Contrary to scare stories, American Hospital Association data shows "occupancy stands at about 70%, which is about 3.1% higher than the national average from years past", only 7% from COVID-19 (boosted by Oct. 6 expanded definitions to include "observation" beds and severe new penalties for reporting failures).

Problematic PCR test thresholds from 35 to 45 may be the culprit behind the world's current casedemic of skyrocketing asymptomatic "cases", which are used to justify new lockdowns despite stable or declining death rates.

Fueled by misinformation about "exponential growth" and "hospital halls lined with gurneys", WA Gov. Inslee first paused phased reopening of his "emergency" lockdown on Jul. 2 then intensified his lockdown on Nov. 15.

https://www.seattlepi.com/coronavirus/article/inslee-coronavirus-washington-warning-restrictions-15722713.php

Such misguided lockdowns fly in the face of pleas from the World Health Organization and 12,000 health scientists that lockdowns are a "ghastly global catastrophe", "cause irreparable damage" especially to the poor, and "those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal."
