Stanford Epidemiologist: Covid Is Highly Treatable, Rarely Deadly, Not Very Dangerous

From The New American

Early last year, Stanford professor John Ioannidis stated that if we didn’t know a new virus called COVID existed, we might just “have casually noted that flu this season seems to be a bit worse than average.” Now Ioannidis has done research that perhaps vindicates that statement, finding that the coronavirus’ infection fatality rate (IFR) in most of the world is less than 0.20 percent — much like that of the flu.

What’s more, the professor concludes that protecting the vulnerable and early treatment could likely reduce that IFR further.

Dr. John Ioannidis has some sterling credentials. After his name at Stanford’s University’s website it states, “Professor of Medicine (Stanford Prevention Research), of Epidemiology and Population Health and by courtesy, of Statistics and of Biomedical Data Science.” READ MORE
