Covid-19 infections in the United States may have been four times higher than the number of cases reported, with 1 in 7 US residents infected by mid-November, according to a new study. 

If true, that means Covid-19 is 1/4 as deadly as we've been led to believe, since the denominator - the number of people having Covid - could be 4X as high, while the numerator - the number of people dying - stays the same. 1 in 7 means a large number of people reading this have had Covid-19 and may not have even realized it, or thought it was just a "bad cold." It may also mean the mRNA vaccines are far less effective than touted, since they relied on also under-reported self-admissions of having Covid-19 to researchers.

Meanwhile, the lockdowns are causing mass poverty, deaths by other causes, including suicides, ODs, etc., and mass social unrest.
