Hard Facts confirm Corona virus is threat to high risk patients advanced in age

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The facts continue to discount the hype. We are being told constantly that Coronavirus 19 is a lethal pest which will kill tens of millions, and that extreme measures should be taken.

But the hard facts belie this, though few medical professionals are admitting it.

In a recent paper in a peer reviewed medical journal, Remuzzi & Remuzzi published statistical data about corona virus 19, which helps everyone put in better perspective the real challenges it poses to Italy and other nations.

Confirming what I had observed hidden in the data at hand yesterday, Remuzzi & Remuzzi admit in their paper that the majority of patients who die from Coronavirus 19 are in fact persons already at high risk on account of other medical conditions:

Italy has had 12 462 confirmed cases according to the Istituto Superiore di Sanità as of March 11, and 827 deaths. Only China has recorded more deaths due to this COVID-19 outbreak. The mean age of those who died in Italy was 81 years and more than two-thirds of these patients had diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, or cancer, or were former smokers. It is therefore true that these patients had underlying health conditions, but it is also worth noting that they had acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pneumonia, needed respiratory support, and would not have died otherwise. Of the patients who died, 42·2% were aged 80–89 years, 32·4% were aged 70–79 years, 8·4% were aged 60–69 years, and 2·8% were aged 50–59 years (those aged >90 years made up 14·1%). The male to female ratio is 80% to 20% with an older median age for women (83·4 years for women vs 79·9 years for men).

First, look at the mean age of those dying of Coronavirus: 81.  Mean age, means that there is an equal number of those older as younger who are affected.  Thus we are dealing with an illness which is targeting only a minority of the population.

Second, more than two-thirds of these patients had diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, or cancer, or were former smokers, as Remuzzi & Rremuzzi admit. This means also, that Coronavirus is 1/3 as much a threat to healthy persons as to non healthy ones.

From these two facts we can see that for those under 50, the threat of mortality is going to be very minor indeed, and that even there, only those with serious medical conditions are threatened.

Also, 80% of those who succumb are men. Therefore, women have 25% of the risk men have for this virus! Men tend to be the smokers, and so we can begin to guess what the real problem is, those who have any risk factor which inhibits breathing or oxygenation of the lungs..

However, let me restate the break down by age, given by Remuzzi & Remuzzi for those who died of Coronavirus 19:

  • 90+ years of age: 14.1%
  • 80-89 years old: 42.1%
  • 70-79 years old: 32.4%
  • 60-69 years old: 8.4%
  • 50-59 years old: 2.8%

These statistics show that for nearly half the demographic by age, the Corona Virus poses little threat, because the remaining morality is:

  • 0-49 years old: 0.2%

So the hype about closing public schools is pure hype, no statistical reality to it. What they should be doing is quarantining every elderly care facility! And every elderly person with known conditions for risk factors.

PLEASE NOTE that these percentages are NOT mortality rates of the whole population, but merely an age description of those who do finally succumb. You cannot extend those rates to the whole population of those age groups!  So Just because you are 70-79% does not mean your risk is 32.4%! See my previous article about the real risks.

From statistics in Italy regarding the risk factors mentioned by Remuzzi & Remuzzi, we can see that the cancer is probably lung cancer, and I will assume the diabetes is Diabetes Mellitus.  Thus each year of these, 150 thousand persons die in Italy.  That is 150 times the current number of victims of Coronavirus 19 in Italy.  Italy however does not ban smoking, so I suppose some deaths are more politically exploitable than others.

The real revelation of the Remuzzi & Remuzzi study is that what is more likely to kill more Italians is the socialized health care system which does not have the ability to rapidly respond to the need for hospital beds. But that the press won’t talk about, because that is what the revolution is all about: killing citizens by neglect and then blaming it on Catholics holding Mass.

However, though death from Coronavirus 19 does result from respiratory pneumonia, there is yet no evidence that the virus arrives in the lungs by coughing, and it has not been found in airborne particles. Thus, the presumed carrier is hand to mouth. So wash your hands regularly especially after returning from outside, and if you have one of these health conditions, take extreme precautions.

And if the read spread of Coronavirus 19 is by hand to mouth, then we can expect even lower rates of mortality in rural areas and smaller towns where there is less frequent social contacts. And this means that the spread of the virus can be stopped, not by national quarantines or shutting down Churches, but by using hand sanitizer as frequently as possible in public places.

Acies Ordinata Munich & Corona Virus: De Mattei needs to respond

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The Italian press has identified how Corona Virus came to Italy, and it was not from China.

Amazingly it was brought to Italy from Bavaria: Munich to be precise. Patient 1, the first Italian identified as infected, was infected by a viral strain subsequently also found at Munich, which led researchers to do a forensic study of person to person contact.

The first Italian to catch Corona Virus, however, does not live at Munich. He lives at Codogno, a small town north of Piacenza, in the Italian region of Lombardia, now the epicenter for contagion for the entire nation.

He reported the first symptoms appeared around January 25, according to a report in La Veritá on March 5, which summarized a study by Dr. Trevis Bedford, of the Fred Hutch Institute in Seattle Washington,  published in the New England Journal of Medicine on . He had visited Munich for a short trip and then returned to Italy.

Who this Italian patient is the press cannot reveal for health privacy reasons.

Likewise, the first patient in Germany reported his first symptoms on January 24, according to IL Sole 24, the largest newspaper of Southern Italy. According to DW, He suspects he contracted it from a colleague at his place of work, Webasto, who had come from Shanghai, China to a mutual training course for the automobile parts supplier. This colleague contracted it from her parents who are from Wuhan.  A number of other cases subsequently appeared at his place of work, which health authorities immediately shut down.

The incubation period for Corona Virus 19 is 2 to 14 days according to the US Center for Disease and Control, as Healthline is reporting. But the median or average rate of the appearance of infection by symptoms is 5 days.

That means both patients were infected by someone between January 11/12 and January 22/23.  And the most likely date for infection at Munich by both these men was January 19/20.

Acies Ordinata, the media stunt group of Traditional Catholics who stand in lines in public places and pray the Rosary as a sign of disagreement with Church leaders, held an impromptu event at Munich on Saturday, January 18, 2020. All the public faces of Trad. In were present: Dr. Roberto de Mattei of the Lepanto Foundation, here at Rome, Mr. Michale Matt Jr, of The Remnant, in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA, Mr. John Henry Westen, of LifeSite News, etc.. (Source). (And Alexander Tschugguel, who subsequent to this report, was reported by Dr. Marshall on March 15, 2020 to have been in hospital for Corona virus.)

Father Z, a popular blogger on all things regarding the Ancient Latin Mass was irate that he was not invited, and posted about the event on the same day.

Whether the first Italian to contract Corona Virus 19 at Munich attended the Acies Ordinata Event is not known. But I think Dr. Roberto de Mattei should give a public answer, whether anyone from Northern Italy attended this event. And were they from Codogno? I think this is necessary simply because of the health risk to others who attended and for the sake of national security here in Italy.

Even if patient 1 did not attend the event, Dr. de Mattei has a grave moral obligation, I think, to notify all who did attend, because they were in Munich when the infection was being spread.

I do know from a friend, that as soon as Michael Matt, Jr. returned from Munich, he announced that he was taking a 2 week vacation. I assume that it was to be with his son, who had just lost a foot in an accident, but now I am not so sure.

Palestrina: Missa Aeterna Christi munera

As we continue our perusal of the sacred repertoire of  Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, the greatest Italian composer of the 16th century, whose fame has never been extinguished, we sample his Missa Aeterna Christi munera, so called, because it was composed for the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, the Hymn for which begins with those words..

This performance is by the Oxford Camerata with  Jeremy Summerly conducting

FromRome.Info features at 5 P.M. daily, Rome time, a selection of sacred music for the edification of our readers, so that they can better grasp how contrary to the very nature of Catholic liturgy were the so called “reforms” of Vatican II.


Priests, read the Psalms!

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The clergy of the Catholic Church are required daily to pray the Divine Office. But I ask them, to pray it not just SAY it. And if you do, you will find light for your way.

One lay woman is doing that, and I cite this case as an example to you all. She read Pslam 118, and stopped at verse 165, and she meditated on it. This is the fruit of her meditation….

Much peace have they that love Thy law, and to them there is no stumbling block.

Exactly. You notice how people rooted in the Law are not having any crises of faith, not questioning or even trying to declare “wrong” 2000 years of church history and teaching, not calling God names, or blaspheming Him, not raging at people and declaring them “schismatics” for not submitting to a man they freely describe as “a type of Antichrist”, not flailing in their own illogic by insisting that Antipope Bergoglio is simultaneously the standard and principal of unity AND a vector of schism, that Antipope Bergoglio is simultaneously Christ’s Vicar AND a “type of Antichrist”.

She is referring to us Catholics who follow canon law. And you might want to read the rest of her meditation here.

C.S. Lewis: Counsels in an Age of Panic

by Andrew J. Baalman

Listen to C.S. Lewis and think of this new Corona Virus and all the craziness, all the canceling of sporting seasons, shopping centers, eateries and coffee shops closed, gun shows canceled, everything canceled. He spoke on this during the Second World War!

Stop this panic, Stop This Hysteria! Stop The Madness!
