Evidence Shows Director General of WHO Severely Overstated the Fatality Rate of the Coronavirus Leading to the Greatest Global Panic in History


The controversial Ethiopian politician and Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, claimed in a press conference in early March that the fatality rate for the coronavirus was many multiples that of the fatality rate of the common flu.

This egregiously false premise has led to the greatest panic in world history.

The Director General of the WHO spoke on March 3, 2020 and shared this related to the coronavirus:

While many people globally have built up immunity to seasonal flu strains, COVID-19 is a new virus to which no one has immunity. That means more people are susceptible to infection, and some will suffer severe disease.

Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died. By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% of those infected.

This statement led to the greatest panic in world history as the media all over the world shared and repeated that the coronavirus was many, many times more deadly than the common flu.

The problem is his statement is false.  It was not accurate! 

The Gateway Pundit reported yesterday, that the coronavirus fatality rate reported by the media was completely inaccurate and the actual rate is less than the current seasonal flu – the media was lying again. The false reporting of the coronavirus fatality rate of 3.4% in the media started with the statements made by the WHO in early March.

Here’s a summary of the analysis from yesterday proving the Director General’s statement was very misleading and materially false:

  1. Somehow, I doubt that any of our world leaders -political, social, or cultural- didn’t know this when they went along with this panic and helped spread it.

    Even insignificant little me, who has no power or say so in things at all, didn’t believe this was true.

    We live in the age of deception and those doing the deceiving have become quite skillful at it and at keeping the public from seeing them as being deceivers.

    I doubt you’ll be seeing this article get much attention in the MSM, or that the vast majority of the public will ever even be exposed to it,

  2. https://blog.nomorefakenews.com/2020/03/17/corona-bologna-the-truth-begins-to-leak-out/
    i do not know sample size

    president of italian higher institute of health says maybe 2 deceased patients have died of covid-2.
    “There may be only two people who died from coronavirus in Italy, who did not present other pathologies.”
    ‘Positive deceased patients have an average of over 80 years – 80.3 to be exact…The majority of these people are carriers of chronic diseases. Only two people were not presently carriers of [other non-COV] diseases’, but even in these two cases, the examination of the files is not concluded and therefore, causes of death different from Covid-19 could emerge.

  3. “The controversial Ethiopian politician and Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus”

    can we now claim diversity kills?

  4. Regardless of the inaccuracy, the notion that some clown saying “3.4%” or “1.9%” would set off a global panic is absurd. The flames of insanity must have been fanned by interested parties quite apart from WHO. As we see this $Trillion bill approaching fruition we should start to get some idea of the identities and purposes of the “usual suspects.” The corruption surrounding this moronic panic will dwarf TARP and DERP and the other abuses heaped upon us.
    The $Millions gathered by Obola and Jarrett will seem minuscule by proportion.

    Look, if 6000 people have the disease, that’s 0.00182% of the population (of the US). Of the 60 deaths attributed to the disease how many had background issues and actually died of something else? AND besides that, the number of people struck by lightning (ALL strikes, not fatal) is 4x greater than the number who’ve died of this disease!

    So, let’s get a grip.

    izlamo delenda est …

  5. Yes ok, I’ll concede that this actually IS racist, but why is an Ethiopian politician the Director General of the WORLD HEALTH Organization?
    I mean, I’ve never actually been to Ethiopia but we’ve all seen the infomercials and documentaries begging for money for the little starving Ethiopian child with the distended abdomen and the fly in the corner of his eye! The so-called “leaders” of that country should not be the heads of “World” anything, let alone “World Health”!!! DUH!!!
    I got a better idea! Let’s make a Kenyan Muslim the POTUS! Oh wait…

  6. You don’t put an Ethiopian politician
    in charge of anything….
    The whole thing was planned and contrived.
    Coronovirus is actually SARS-COV-2.It is 96%
    identical in nucleotide sequence to
    SARS-COV from 2003.Just a test folks for
    “events” to come.

  7. Shocker!!! The idiots appoint some third world doctor that still uses leaches on patients to run the worldwide organization.

  8. Going forward, unless the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) is a doctor from the United State, said United States should not fund said WHO.

  9. “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” — H. L. Mencken

    Never let a crisis go to waste.
    …and if a real crisis doesn’t come along, create one.

  10. The media just wants the economy to crash because they think it will help them at elections.

    If obama was president, his bootlickers in the media would all be calling for calm. But now they want disaster and panic.

  11. Interesting read Christy944, thank you. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and the complicit propaganda machine should be held accountable and executed…..

  12. A few actors now have it and the best part is that the self absorbed pricks cannot keep their mouth shut and are clearly showing on social media that they are essentially feeling quite good and recovering very quickly.

    Within another week you will see these “stars”, “athletes”, and uncontrolled people with a platform laughing it up that it was not that bad.

  13. He’s not even a Doctor. He’s one of these “Public Health” degreed charlatans like Chelsea Clinton who don’t know jack shit about anything medical, but write books and papers, and infest useless “Health” bureaucracies around the world. The WHO is a puppet show run by China, and dR. TeDrOs is the star marionette.

    The “Public Health” degree program is a 21st century plague and should be discontinued unless a Medical Doctor degree is made a prerequisite. dR. TeDrOs should be burned at the stake on a bonfire of toilet paper.

  14. So, they lied to us? Next we’ll find out that 4 our of 5 dentists did NOT recommend sugarless gum…I need a shower.

  15. The concept of “Public Health” died as “political correctness” flourished.

    Privacy (to shield perversity, primarily), preferred/privileged minorities, selected political expediences … KILLED the high ethical imperative of prioritizing the good of the general public, the safety of the innocents.

    Unethical government is a scourge; judge them by what they do.

    Today’s ‘public health authorities’ would be overtaxed if they were put to the only task they are qualified to do: muck out wet stalls in a stable.

  16. I have believed like most of you that this was bullshit since the beginning. My question is though, why is the President going along with it?

  17. O R W W,
    let’s wait for some 3D chess from President Trump. They hounded him to react, and he gave them what they wanted(in the overabundance of caution). As the economy collapses, and the ‘pandemic’ becomes nothingburger, he may be playing Battleship, blowing Dems out of the waters…..

  18. Anon, how long are we going to have to wait?

    In all of these areas with black communities who have shown numerous of times it doesn’t take much to cause them to riot, how long before they’re tired of not being able to go eat at their favorite restaurant, how long before they’re angry that their friend might lose his business and they will never have it again? How long before they’re angry there is no food or toilet paper in stores?
    Yeah, I’ve been following some of the talk on social media and they’re getting restless.

    Then you have the regular folks that are getting angry that they’re trying to kill their business, angry that they can’t work. You have scared people, depressed people, angry people, bored people and people who don’t need much to start rioting, it’s a powder keg waiting to blow. I give it maybe a week or two and all hell is going to break loose in some areas.

  19. no one’s missed any meals … yet … that’s when shits gonna hit the fan

    in a very short time, all American grocery stores N,S,E,& W even in chicken shit little towns are OUT of goods
    restaurants are being told to close (for 30 days .. for now) in NYC, FL & elsewhere
    people aren’t working
    the sale of liquor is being banned in some places
    some “mayors” have already jumped into martial law territory

    hope all y’all are prepped, locked, & loaded
    I think we’re in for a bumpy ride

  20. OMG. Look, a Red (Chicom) Wolf pack. It’s killing, mauling and biting everyone one it sees. Run for your lives!
    Stop the foot dragging! Grab you bugout kit and TP supply. Hurry, hurry!

    But, but, what about the Grey Wolf pack over there? It has been here for years, and it kills about 61k people every year. And the Timber Wolf pack over there that has killed 10s of thousands of people every year for decades? And the pack of Hyenas that has done the same thing. Lots of innocent people are killed every year by more familiar things, which is very bad. Why then should we panic over this, stop the engine of the world, yet mostly ignore long existing killers without taking extreme measures?

    Well, you do know don’t you. There is a real crisis behind this hyped up crisis. Muller, Schiff, Nadler & co. failed to get Trump out of office. Reelection was almost certainly a sure thing. Desperate times requires desperate measures.

  21. @tea party hobbit, you know that link goes against FB community standards, that’s what I was told when I tried to share it.
    I always give credit to sites on FB and never copy and paste articles. I made an exception this time and then sent the link in private messages.

  22. @Jimmy, I could be wrong as I was wrong about what they’re doing now and the reaction of people, but I don’t think they’re going to get away with shutting the country down for 18 months.
    I see a lot of bad shit starting to happen within a few weeks in certain areas of the country. Not so damn sure the rednecks might not be joining in.

    Fear always turns to anger and many are already in the anger stage.

  23. @ Old Racist White Wioman – Sorry about dropping the “i” from your name up there.

    I agree. In the Soviet State, people over 60 are supposed to stay home right now. Uh, that would be me. But I’ve been all over the place lately… car repair, buying garden equipment, hardware stores, grocery store, gasoline, visiting relatives and friends, etc. EVERY SINGLE PERSON I’ve talked to along the way is FLABBERGASTED at the panic by our government(s). And this is at USA’s Ground Zero, mind you! We should be shaking in our boots, cowering under the bed. But people generally are not out here!

    So. I’m now all in on:

    Engineered virus.
    Engineered crisis.
    Engineered response.

    Someone is counting on a ‘predictable outcome.’
