Well as time will tell, we'll see who is endangered. I wear my mask all the time in public places, I will play their game. It will all be over soon, cant keep this up forever quaranteening people etc. I look at it this way, things could be worse, we could all be shackeled slaves to the corps.

We asked experts to respond to the most common COVID-19 conspiracy theories and misinformation
Researchers and professors comment on the origin of pandemic misinformation, and how to debunk such claims

https://www.salon.com/2020/07/18/we-asked-experts-to-respond-to-the-most-common-covid-19-conspiracy-theories/

1. The coronavirus targets the sick and elderly while leaving youth mostly alone.

"The coronavirus affects both old and young," Dr. Russell Medford, chairman of the Center for Global Health Innovation and Global Health Crisis Coordination Center, told Salon. "What's clear is, in terms of the impact of the virus on, it causes severe symptoms and death in the young. It's much less severe in the young, but the young are infected significantly and in large numbers. We are seeing our hospital beds and ICU beds being filled up with young patients now in Florida and Texas, that are in the hospital and undergoing intensive treatment because of their infection by coronavirus."

2.In terms of its public health impact, COVID-19 is no worse than the flu.

"That's not true," Benjamin explained. "The mortality for this disease is almost 10 times that of influenza, depending on where you are. And we don't understand the full denominator, but it's by far worse than influenza."

Medford echoed Benjamin's reaction, right down to the opening sentence: "That's not true. This is much more severe. It affects not only the lungs, but other organ systems. It is putting both the old and young in intensive care and causing severe damage and death and mortality rates that are significantly greater than we see with the flu."

3. People are being counted as COVID-19 deaths even when they die for unrelated reasons.

"Considering the extent across the entire nation and the world of COVID-19, for there to be a deliberate attempt to inflate numbers based on false research, the assignment of COVID-19 inappropriately to deaths, there's simply no evidence of that," Medford told Salon. "I can't even imagine how that would be executed on a worldwide or even U S national basis. By far the data has been consistent. Many different types of data sources and a number of studies that have looked specifically at this have all shown that the reporting out of COVID-10 associated complications in-depth are accurate."

Benjamin elaborated by explaining how the process of accurately classifying deaths is complicated and messy.

"If you die from a severe lung disease or a heart attack with COVID-19 as the precipitating cause, it is still a COVID-19 death," Benjamin said. "We now know that COVID-19 causes a range of clinical conditions, from strokes to blood clots to heart attacks, in addition to severe lung disease. They're all COVID-19 deaths now. Unless you do autopsies on every one of these patients, you won't get 100 percent of the story."

He added, "Sometimes we put the wrong cause of death, don't always get it right. And I would admit that one of the worst things we do in this country is we don't have a very good death reporting system. We have coroners that are just elected officials with no medical background who sign out death certificates, believe it or not."

4. The pandemic is just a conspiracy to defeat Donald Trump and "everyone is lying" about it.

"That one is purely [partisan,]" Dr. Adam Enders, an assistant professor of political science at the University of Louisville, told Salon. "The correlation with self-identification as a Democrat, as a Republican or a conservative is probably very, very high."

Earlier in our conversation, Enders explained that people "want to believe that a problem isn't as big as it actually sounds. And if that's the case, that happens to be good politically, at least potentially, for President Trump." If Republicans can believe that the pandemic "is just something that the Democrats are perpetrating on him, and it's not something we should really worry about or hold him accountable for, psychologically it feels better for lots and lots of people." It has an added benefit in that it "reduces anxiety and uncertainty a little bit because you believe that you're safe. This isn't going to kill you."

Medford was more blunt in his assessment: "A virus has no political affiliation."

5. Wearing masks does not help and may actually make people more sick.

"Masks are clearly protective," Benjamin told Salon. "Numerous studies have shown that they are protective and they don't make you sick."

Medford had the same argument, telling Salon that the notion masks are anything other than helpful is "categorically false on all levels. Masks not only reduce the titre, where the concentration of virus is in the air, but also can confer some degree of protection for the user itself. Masks are along with hand-washing and social distancing the most important elements that we can employ as citizens to make an impact on this pandemic."
