Discover more from Beyond the Data
Finally, the mainstream media is catching up
Two years ago, I stood and testified at the Ohio Statehouse for the first time. In my testimony, I talked about the numbers of hospitalizations and deaths I had seen in my analyses of the publicly available COVID data from the Ohio Department of Health. I testified that the data contained an overwhelming number of oddities that were not indicative of an acute infection from a respiratory virus. You can listen to my first testimony here. And you might want to take notes on the percentages I calculated.
Next, read the Time Magazine article here, and definitely click through to the linked studies. Check my work. The evidence was there over two years ago, even to someone like me looking just at the heavily sanitized public data.
Now, don’t think because no one asked me a single question after my testimony that they didn’t hear me.
Oh, they heard me.
One week after that testimony, the Ohio Department of Health disconnected the death data from onset and hospital admission dates, so I could no longer make my accurate analyses. They didn’t fix the data, they hid it. I know they hid it and didn’t fix it, because I could track some of the more absurd deaths for a few days after they made the change. I described this tracking in my second testimony, in front of the exact same committee, two weeks after my first time.
Of course, I had been working out these numbers for months before my testimonies. Publicly describing where I got the data, what my reasonings were, and there were plenty of lively discussions in my original Understanding Ohio COVID-19 Data page on Facebook. But, of course, all of that data analysis (which will likely prove almost entirely accurate) is no longer accessible. We can’t have any of that ‘true content’ be out there for people to read and know that this was all knowable from very early on, now can we?
