Here is the table of contents:

1 Min: Death rates same as for seasonal Flu

1:30: Hospitals major source of virus spread

2:00: Strategy – Keep all but the sickest away from the hospital

2:40: Over 65yo, risk of dying from COVID-19 goes up significantly

3:30: Negligible risk of dying if younger than 65 and healthy

4:00: PCR – good test but positive does NOT imply infectious

4:20: Antibody test – if positive, you HAVE mounted an immune response

4:30 If you have antibodies you are likely protected for a while – just like the Flu

4:40 Innate immune system may control the virus without antibodies detected

5:00 Measuring innate immune response is necessary too

5:30 Vaccine may NOT be the solution

7:00 Vaccines did NOT work for previous coronaviruses

7:30 Vaccines led to cytokine storm and more associated deaths

8:00 Circumstances for a vaccine

8:30 Novel coronavirus is NOT apocalyptic

8:45 Social distancing response – does NOT save lives – postpones the inevitable

10:00 Spread of virus is inevitable – shelter in place delays infection ONLY

10:20 Shelter-in-place creates collateral damage that may be worse

11:00 Initial projections were astronomically wrong about death rates

11:30 Case fatality rate same as Flu

12:00 Time to open up economy carefully

12:20 Political decisions to open up economy and society

13:00 Dr. Ioannidis indicates that we must adapt to new knowledge

Get healthy, stay alive!

Wisdom is better than strength. Nevertheless the poor man's wisdom is despised. And his words are not heard. Words of the wise, spoken quietly, should be heard. Rather than the shout of a ruler of fools.
