Here we bring together information on virus testing, measurement and reporting, particularly censorship of reporting.
There is an overabundance of media coverage on the virus but there is also rampant censorship to control perception. As a result, it can be challenging to get an accurate sense for what has been reported on these subjects.
Here we bring together journalists, scientists, healthcare providers and whistleblowers whose reports differ from the narrative that has been presented by those with power to control media platforms.

Sampling of Reports
Before 2020, when, let’s say, a cancer patient contracted a flu-like virus and his weak immune system could not handle it, and he developed, let’s say, pneumonia and died? He was pronounced “dead from cancer or cancer complications.”
But after 2020, every patient with cancer or any other severe illness that destroys the immune system and died as a result of those complications was declared “Death by Corona”. This is a fraud.– Jan 23, 2022
Researchers Too Fearful of Drug Companies to Report Findings
Cardiologist and NHS consultant Dr. Aseem Malhotra [spoke] about an American Heart Association study. The study found an increased risk of heart problems after COVID vaccinations. He mentions that another study found the same issue, but the researchers won’t publish it in fear of losing funding from drug companies… What does it say about our world when science cannot be made public because it calls into question government measures? How much power does the pharmaceutical industry hold over government when it comes to health policy?– The Pulse, Dec 5, 2021
Clinicians Suing CDC Because Not One of 1500 Samples of People Tested “Positive” Showed the Presence of COVID-19
A clinical scientist and immunologist-virologist at a southern California laboratory says he and colleagues from 7 universities are suing the CDC for massive fraud. The reason: not one of 1500 samples of people tested “positive” could find Covid-19. ALL people were simply found to have Influenza A, and to a lesser extent Influenza B. This is consistent with the previous findings of other scientists, which we have reported on several times.– GlobalResearch.ca, Apr 11, 2021
Canada Government Data Only Provided on People Who Died WITH Covid; No Data in People Who Died FROM Covid
As we revealed in yesterday’s report (Documents: Health Canada Doesn’t Know How Many People Died Only From COVID), we have uncovered documents from the Canadian Government that show they have not been tracking how many people in Canada have died from just COVID-19. This is a very important statistic for the reason that it not only indicates that a ‘one size fits all’ vaccine mandate approach is irresponsible, but it also reveals where governmental priorities are. The government can very quickly tell Canadians who donated to the Trucker Freedom Convoy, and that those people should be sanctioned, yet they still cannot tell us important data that backs up their COVID vaccine policies?– Joe Martino, Mar 8, 2022 Email
Swiss Policy Research: Fatality Rate Less than Half of One Percent of Those infected & Less than A Tenth of One Percent of the Population
In most Western countries, the median age of covid deaths is 80+ years and about 50% of deaths occurred in care homes… [There is] an average global covid lethality of 0.1% to 0.35% [based on infection] and a global covid mortality of about 0.035% [based on total population]. By comparison, the 1918 flu pandemic had a global mortality of about 2.3% (40 million deaths in 1.8 billion people).. [Table shows the IFR by worldwide locations and by Non Nursing Home (NNH) populations.]– Swiss Policy Research Nov 2021
Ten Years Before Corona Virus, WHO & UN Corruption Exposed
European criticism of the World Health Organization’s handling of the H1N1 pandemic intensified Friday with the release of two reports that accused the agency of exaggerating the threat posed by the virus and failing to disclose possible influence by the pharmaceutical industry on its recommendations for how countries should respond. The WHO’s response caused widespread, unnecessary fear and prompted countries around the world to waste millions of dollars, according to one report. At the same time, the Geneva-based arm of the United Nations relied on advice from experts with ties to drug makers in developing the guidelines it used to encourage countries to stockpile millions of doses of antiviral medications, according to the second report.– Washington Post, Jun 4, 2010
CDC Has History of Manipulating Numbers Which Then Causes Hospitals to be Inundated
Is this virus as dangerous as the media would have us believe? Most people are well aware that the media makes money through publicizing tragedies and focusing on bad news. Fear sells. “If it bleeds, it leads.” … Major media continually spotlight the worst hit areas and bring public focus there while giving scant attention to how well some areas are doing. Look how much attention this virus has already drawn. How much has the media gotten you focused on this pandemic? Governments have also contributed to spreading fear. An article in the U.K.’s Guardian spells out how government officials promulgated fear-filled pronouncements at the time of the 2009 swine flu. The U.K.’s chief medical officer stated on BBC that “65,000 could die” in Britain. Yet once the flu had run its course, the article continues, a total of only “360 people have died under its influence, most with prior ‘non-flu’ conditions.” That’s less than 1/100th of what this official had predicted.
In this eye-opening 2009 CBS article, it states, “If you’ve been diagnosed ‘probable’ or ‘presumed’ 2009 H1N1 or ‘swine flu’ in recent months, you may be surprised to know this: odds are you didn’t have H1N1 flu. In fact, you probably didn’t have flu at all.” The article goes on to show how the U.S. government’s CDC blatantly manipulated numbers to induce fear. With the current heightened level of fear, many who experience even mild symptoms of the flu are deeply concerned that they might have the coronavirus. So they immediately go to the hospital only to find it jam packed with others who have flu-like symptoms, when – even if they do have a virus – the vast majority of these people have only a common version of the flu. The overwhelm in the hospitals then gets spotlighted by the media… Why did China lock down the entire city of Wuhan (population 11 million) and it’s surrounding areas? Consider that with it’s one-party system, China is one of the most controlled and surveilled countries in the world. Chinese citizens are not allowed to access facebook and thousands of other websites which might “contaminate the thoughts” of their people. Could it be that China used this virus as a huge social experiment in crowd control? Was this used as an effort to see how much how control China’s communist party could generate through all the fear mongering?– WantToKnow.info, Jun 24, 2020
Mainstream Media Censorship Affects Many
Due to reliance on a single media source, many people are not shown information and perspectives that tell a different or more complete story, especially when it comes to “controversial” topics. Often times, these topics are avoided using ridicule in place of addressing points brought up from other perspectives. We’ve seen a lot of this with COVID, an unprecedented amount of censorship of science has taken place with regards to all things COVID, and many academics have been speaking up about it for quite some time…. [For example,} Vinay Prasad MD MPH, an associate professor at the University of California San Francisco is one of many experts in the field who has been criticizing Facebook fact-checkers for their missteps in claiming content is false when it is not. One of the best examples of suppression is “anti-lockdown” rhetoric. Multiple dozens of studies have shown and concluded that lockdowns do not reduce COVID infection, will kill more people than COVID due to lack of access to health care, starvation and more, and cause a wide range of other health and economic issues. Regardless, the experts who have been publishing and sharing this information have been heavily censored. And culturally, we’re pretending that there’s no science to oppose lockdowns.– The Pulse, Apr 1, 2021
Secret Video of ER Doctor and Nurse Discussing Extreme Harm Vaccines Have Caused Patients, and How This is Not Being Reported
Mainstream Platforms Censor Information on Natural Immune System Boosters & Remedies for Virus
On January 26, 2020 the OMNS Editor in Chief, Andrew W. Saul, wrote a news release: “Vitamin C Protects Against Coronavirus”  It also made recommendations for vitamin D3, magnesium, zinc and selenium which strengthen the immune system. We have continued to repeat and expand the message again and again. And have been suspended by Facebook again and again.
Others, including highly respected front-line physicians such as Paul Marik, have also figured out the importance of these nutrients.  In fact we have known about the anti-infective potential of vitamin C for over 50 years, since it was reported by Frederick Klenner. [3,4] He described traditional sources such as acerola cherries, which are very rich sources of C. That puts the knowledge back way before we named it “vitamin C.”
And it makes nonsense of the narrative that there is only one solution to Covid: vaccinate, again and again. Two years ago I failed to persuade mainstream colleagues of the utility of this. “It’s not evidence-based,” they said. Now two review papers have shown the evidence, and it’s pretty solid. The first, in the journal Life, is called “Vitamin C Intervention for Critical COVID-19: A Pragmatic Review of the Current Level of Evidence.” [5,6] It shows clearly that “this simple vitamin saves lives when given in the right dose.” In fact, vitamin C saves about 80% of the lives of critically ill Covid patients.– Orthomolecular News Service, Jan 7, 2022
Healthcare Professionals Intimidated into Staying Quiet
A growing number of healthcare professionals are speaking up about the damage wrought by Dr. Fauci’s remdesivir, ventilator and vaccine mandate across U.S. hospital systems. More healthcare professionals are starting to speak up about covid vaccine injuries and the rise of severe disease in the “fully vaccinated.” But if the mandated protocols and experimental vaccines were really dangerous, then why wouldn’t everyone in the medical field speak out and demand change?
Doctors and nurses are oftentimes hesitant to speak out because they work in a culture of intimidation and abuse. Many doctors and nurses have been threatened for almost two years now to comply with pandemic protocols that prioritize terror and pandemonium over faith and humanity. Many have faced persecution for their beliefs. Their careers are constantly threatened … Because of this perpetual intimidation, many healthcare professionals put their heads down and do their jobs, refusing to confront humanitarian issues and widespread medical malpractice. Many just want to provide for their family instead of making waves with the status quo. They fear being socially ostracized because they have seen other critical thinkers be fired, smeared and censored…
On July 29, 2021, the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) warned all healthcare professionals that they could lose their medical license if they create or spread so-called “COVID-19 vaccine misinformation.” This misinformation includes anything that could “sow distrust” in the vaccines.– Lance D Johnson, Nov 24, 2021
“Masses of People Are Wrong About Basic COVID Facts”
We examine a couple of polls from the US that provide insight into the affect media has had on public perception and how it has led them to support authoritarian ideas they likely would not support if they had all the facts. I chose hospitalization rate of COVID being a good fact to go off because many recognize that the key motivation of policy is to not overload healthcare systems.– Joe Martino, Jan 19, 2022 12 min video

American Medical Association Advises Doctors to Use Specific and Incorrect Words to Support Narrative
The American Medical Association COVID-19 Guide lists nine “key messages” the AMA wants doctors to focus on when communicating about COVID-19… This includes explicit instructions on which words to swap for other more narrative-affirming choices. Word swaps include changing “hospitalization rates” to “deaths,” two terms that are not even remotely interchangeable. Swapping the term “Operation Warp Speed” for “standard process” is another rather egregious misdirection. The two are not interchangeable. In fact, they’re diametrically opposed to one another.– Dr. Joseph Mercola, Sep 23, 2021
A test’s accuracy is defined by two things: its ability to diagnose a condition when it exists and its ability to rule out a condition when it doesn’t. A given diagnostic test does not necessarily have an equal ability to rule in and rule out the condition it is designed to identify. For this reason, the accuracy of a test is defined by its sensitivity and specificity. Sensitivity and specificity have precise definitions. A test’s sensitivity is the proportion of people who have a disease that the test will correctly identify with a positive result. In other words, if a test has a 90% sensitivity it will return a positive result nine times out of 10 when testing people with the disease. Specificity is the proportion of people who do not have the disease that the test will correctly identify with a negative result. A test with 90% specificity will return a negative result nine times out of 10 when testing people who don’t have the disease…
If we use more realistic assumptions of 0.5% disease prevalence and 90% antigen test specificity (due to user error and other frequent problems), we get a catastrophic 97% false-positive rate, with 9,950 false positives for every 335 true positives (see below figure). This short essay in The BMJ, which appears as a “rapid response” to The BMJ online calculator, explains the scholarship demonstrating why testing asymptomatic people leads to massive numbers of false positives.– How U.S. COVID Testing Strategy Will Extend Pandemic Nightmare
Many People Who Test Positive May Not Actually be Infectious for This Important Reason
The mRNA molecules via gene based vaccines have been deliberately manipulated to become more stable once inside the cell. A “pseudouridine” molecule has been added to the mRNA to give it a longer half-life than normal mRNA. Therefore, the production of spike protein within the cell is not being turned off. We don’t know the implications of this… This study comes after a previous study published last may that showed RNA from a natural COVID infection can integrate into the genome of cultured human cells and can be expressed in patient-derived tissues. So it’s not hard to see why researchers wanted to examine if this is true with regards to the vaccine as well. These findings may also explain why many people who test “positive” may not actually be infectious. The test may simply be picking up parts of the virus that have integrated into peoples genome.– New Study Concludes mRNA In Pfizer Shot Can Be Reverse Transcribed Into Human DNA
CDC Not Reporting on Cases in Vaccinated Individuals
Perhaps one of the clearest examples of the CDC’s failure to provide timely and accurate COVID-related information is the agency’s inability or unwillingness to adequately track the number of cases in which fully vaccinated (and boosted) individuals have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2. Because of this, it is not known how many “breakthrough cases” there have been in the United States. Consequently, there is no way to know for sure how effective the COVID shots have been in preventing the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and COVID illness. This represents a huge and fundamental scientific knowledge gap underlying the primary tool the U.S. government has aggressively pushed on the American people to deal with COVID.– Feb 23, 2022
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 966,575 deaths from COVID-19 on Friday after it corrected the data earlier this week, which reduced the death tallies in all age-groups, including children… Tit made adjustments to its … mortality data on March 14 because its algorithm was accidentally counting deaths that were not COVID-19-related. The adjustment resulted in removal of 72,277 deaths previously reported across 26 states, including 416 pediatric deaths, CDC said.– Mar 18, 2022
