A reasonable solution to the ongoing COVID threat

The House Foreign Affairs Committee Minority Staff Report documents COVID gain of function research was “partially funded by grants from the US National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Disease and the National Institute of Aging within the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), as well as the US Agency for International Development (USAID).” This gain of function is weaponization. Democrats blocked a bill to require declassification of information related to the origins of any role the Wuhan Institute of Virology may have played in the pandemic’s outbreak. This is politicization. The politicization has extended into mass disruption of society with no end in sight, but there is a reasonable solution to this COVID threat.

There is deep divide about the safety and efficacy of the COVID “vaccines.” There is distrust of the reporting of COVID infection rates, hospitalizations and deaths. There is misgiving about treatments. There are those, especially politicians, big business, and media, who rabidly accept the paradigm that the only way to fight COVID is with 100% vaccination. They ridicule, belittle, discriminate against, and ostracize any other point of view. There are those with great concerns about the long-term impact of these hastily developed “vaccines.” Those who attack the unvaccinated often do so without citing the very science that they say they so dearly revere. This is politicization.

For example, the CDC website COVID tracker reports that the seven-day average for both deaths and cases appears to be leveling out. CDC’s data indicates that on January 13 of this year—which saw the most COVID-19 deaths per day—the number of daily deaths totaled 4,169 with about 240,000 daily cases. On August 31 the CDC reported the number of daily deaths to be about 985, with about 150,000 daily cases. This is with 74.4% of all US adults having received at least one dose of COVID 19 “vaccine.” This indicates that the infection and death rate is declining. A recent study led by Dr. Jeffrey Shaman at Columbia University indicated that the death rate fell from 0.77% in April 2020 to 0.31% in December 2020, but that COVID should be treated as a continued threat. This could be the result of weaponization.

Calling people names and believing narratives apart from truth does not solve this COVID 19 threat. Likewise, stubbornly settling on group think that there is only one way to prevent and treat COVID 19 will only cause more politicization and social disruption. IF leaders were truly interested in defeating this weaponized pandemic, doesn’t it make sense that representatives from all on the medical spectrum—from big pharma to alternative medicine, including naturopathy and homeopathy—come together with equal voices, share their respective science without recrimination, and develop a comprehensive solution using the best practices of all? As in Isaiah 1:18, “Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord.” If we put aside the politics and follow God’s principles no weapon formed against us shall prosper. Why not?
