The numbers told a shocking story:
In the exact, same, way...
His graphs show that all countries
experienced seemingly identical coronavirus infection patterns, with
the number of infected peaking in the sixth week and rapidly
subsiding by the eighth week.
It is a fixed pattern that is not dependent on freedom or quarantine.
The reason why coronavirus follows a fixed pattern is yet unknown.
But what about Italy and their staggering 12% mortality rate?
Indeed, Italy's exceptionally high coronavirus mortality rate is eerily reminiscent of their unusually high flu mortality rates...
Supportive of this theory, Germany, has low flu infection and mortality rates and similarly low coronavirus rates.
Professor Yitzhak Ben Israel concludes in his analysis summary paper that the data from the past 50 days indicates that the closure policies of the quarantine countries can be replaced by more moderate social distancing policies...
The numbers simply do not support quarantine or economic closure.
On the reasonableness of Israel's unprecedented quarantine and closure, he commented to the news agency,
While the American policies remain less restrictive than those of Israel, it is important to understand the origins of our own "mass hysteria" response.
President Trump urged a strong coronavirus response after consulting with Dr. Anthony Fauci and his team, who relied on a British model predicting 2.2 million deaths in the United States and 500,000 deaths in the U.K.
Ferguson was not known for his reliability, and his 2001 disease model was criticized as "not fit for purpose" after it predicted that up to 150,000 people could die in the U.K. from mad cow disease (177 deaths to date).
Ferguson's U.K. coronavirus deaths prediction is now down to 20,000 people, 4% of the original prediction.
Professor Yitzhak Ben Israel has mathematically shown us that coronavirus closures were a mistake...
Hindsight is 20/20, so we have to be realistic with our criticism.
President Trump did not want 2.2 million Americans to die and did what he thought was necessary to save our lives, relying on a model his advisors told him was trustworthy.
It's done. It happened... But it doesn't mean that he should continue the course.
It's been one month since our country declared a national coronavirus emergency and life as we knew it had ceased...
Professor Yitzhak Ben Israel's data analysis provides Trump with the assurance that he needs to reopen America.
