COVID-19 infection fatality rate is ridiculously tiny, almost non-existent for children

COVID-19 survival rate for anyone under 70 is 99.499% or better! Stop the freaking madness now!

This was known from very early on in the “pandemic”. We need to put the “pandemic” into quotes now because the more information that comes out the less this looks like a real pandemic. What we had was nothing more than a bad cold virus that killed the elderly, the obese, the diabetic, and the immunocompromised. The vast majority of the population of the world never was and is not currently in any real danger from SARS-CoV-2.

A new paper by John Ioannidis, Stanford University Professor of Medicine in Stanford Prevention Research, of Epidemiology and Population Health, looked at 38 countries prior to any vaccination rollout.

Ioannidis and his co-writers reviewed 40 national seroprevalence studies that covered 38 countries to come to determine their estimates of infection fatality rate for the overwhelming majority of people.

Importantly, those seroprevalence studies were conducted before the vaccines were released, meaning the IFR’s were calculated before whatever impact vaccines had on younger age groups.

The researchers broke down the demographics into smaller buckets, showing the increase in risk amongst older populations, and conversely, how infinitesimal the risk was amongst younger age groups.

Ages 60-69, fatality rate 0.501%, survival rate 99.499%

Ages 50-59, fatality rate 0.129%, survival rate 99.871%

Ages 40-49, fatality rate 0.035% survival rate 99.965%

Ages 30-39, fatality rate 0.011%, survival rate 99.989%

Ages 20-29, fatality rate 0.003%, survival rate 99.997%

Ages 0-19, fatality rate 0.0003%, survival rate 99.9997%

They added that “Including data from another 9 countries with imputed age distribution of COVID-19 deaths yielded median IFR of 0.025-0.032% for 0-59 years and 0.063-0.082% for 0-69 years.”

These numbers are astounding and reassuringly low, across the board.

But they’re almost nonexistent for children.
