Nick Hudson, an actuary and private equity investor, co-founded Pandemics ~ Data & Analytics (PANDA) in response to the many threats to civil rights and freedoms that have occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic response. While media and public health institutions have engaged in a campaign of smoke and mirrors — one that is perpetuating paralyzing fear, needlessly, to this day — data and facts don’t lie.
Hudson and his team at PANDA, which include a data analyst, economist, medical doctors, big data analyst and public health experts, are using live data1 and open science to empower the public to exercise freedom of choice and preserve free societies.2
Hudson spoke at the inaugural BizNews Investment Conference in March 2021…He explains the ugly truth about COVID-19, which is that the world is being crippled by fear due to a false narrative. Anyone who challenges that narrative is being labeled as a lunatic, a menace or a danger to society, which is furthering the repression and unjustified fear.
Dr. Mercola asks, “So, what is the reality about the pandemic?” To answer this, Dr. Mercola provides the following conclusions from Hudson:
- A virus that presents high risk to few and negligible risk to most hit some regions
- Few are susceptible to severe disease
- There are available treatments
- Asymptomatic people are not major drivers of the disease
- Lockdowns and mask mandates haven’t worked and instead cause great harm
- The vulnerable were hurt instead of helped
Dr. Mercola continues,
The misinformation has been spewed from the beginning, including by World Health Organization director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. In a March 3, 2020, media briefing, he stated, “Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died. By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% of those infected.”5
But according to Hudson, the 3.4% represents case fatality rate (CFR), which is the number of deaths from COVID-19 divided by the number of cases of COVID-19, while the 1% is infection fatality rate (IFR), or the number of deaths divided by all infected individuals.
“By conflating these two separate points (CFR and IFR),” Hudson said, “Tedros was effectively lying.” Quantitative scientist John Ioannidis, professor of medicine at the Stanford Prevention Research Center, calculated the IFR for COVID-19 in a review of 61 seroprevalence studies, which was a median of 0.23%, and 0.05% in people younger than 70.6
Based on this, the IFR for COVID-19 is lower than that of the flu.
Using Hudson’s data, Dr. Mercola goes on to shine the light on the numerous lies surrounding asymptomatic spread which led to the “lockdown madness” and the foolish widespread masking of humanity around the world. He also speaks to the evil of “vaccine passports.” For those who’ve actually been paying attention to the data (or reading my site the past year), PANDA’s conclusions are nothing new. However, it is a worthy read and more verification for what many of us have known for months now.
