Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition, and that is just the point: It comes when you least expect it. Already even the U.S. president has had his Twitter and Facebook accounts locked due to “policy violations”.  Who will be next? Will Ersjdamoo suddenly disappear? Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.
In the Columbus times, during the reign of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, they too had “heresies” such as now with the religion of science, the newest god to be worshiped. In 1478, the Spanish Inquisition was intended to maintain Catholic orthodoxy.  Suspected heretics were on the prowl. Dangerous ideas had to be rooted out. And in our time too there are heretics who do not blindly worship “the science” but instead point out flaws in the latest god.
Two kinds of tests are available for COVID-19: viral tests and antibody tests. A viral test tells you if you have a current infection. An antibody test might tell you if you had a past infection.  The viral test is also known as a diagnostic test. There are two types of diagnostic tests – molecular tests, such as RT-PCR (Reverse Transcription – Polymerase Chain Reaction) tests, that detect the virus’s genetic material, and antigen tests that detect specific proteins from the virus.  “The variety of testing platforms for SARS-CoV-2 available today can be rather confusing,” admits Memorial Healthcare. They call PCR (polymerase chain reaction) testing the “gold standard” in SARS-CoV-2 detection.  The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test makes millions to billions of copies of a specific DNA sample, allowing scientists to take a very small sample of DNA and amplify it to a large enough amount to study in detail.  The Corman-Drosten test uses RT-PCR . However external peer review of the RTPCR test to detect SARS-CoV-2 reveals 10 major scientific flaws at the molecular and methodological level. 
The CDC has the mortality rate for 2019: The age-adjusted death rate decreased by 1.2% from 723.6 deaths per 100,000 standard population in 2018 to 715.2 in 2019.  Final mortality data for 2020 is not expected to be available for months, reports Snopes. Preliminary and incomplete 2020 mortality statistics did make it appear that 2020 was a typical year (nothing extraordinary for mortality count), however CDC cautions the data are “incomplete because of the lag in time between when the death occurred and when the death certificate is completed, submitted to NCHS and processed for reporting purposes.” 
In spite of these confusions, Illinois’ Governor J.B. Pritzker follows “the science”, says he, which makes him way smarter than the average Ersjdamoo who can’t make heads or tails of it. Governor J.B. has kindly allowed the Illinoisans to smoke pot, which is helpful for us in these times.
