To organize, I’ll start by summarizing the big arguments, and then I’ll walk through each of them one-by-one, though many of these claims are related to one another:
1. COVID is not very deadly, with comparable (or even lower) mortality than the flu.
2. There’s a good chance COVID has been here for a while, and is already widespread in the population, though asymptomatic in most cases.
3. The COVID death count is way overstated, as many people are being counted as COVID deaths without proper documentation.
4. The economic damage we’re causing with COVID-containment lockdowns is a cure worse than the disease, so we should end the lockdowns soon.
