Publisher's Summary

No other topic dominates our attention as much as coronavirus and COVID-19, the infectious disease it triggers. There’s been a global deluge of contradictory opinions, fake news, and politically controlled information. Differing views on the dangers posed by the pandemic have led to deep division and confusion, within governments, society, and even among friends and family.

In Corona, False Alarm?, award-winning researchers Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi and Dr. Karina Reiss give clarity to these confusing and stressful times. They offer analysis of whether radical protective measures, including lockdown, social distancing, and mandatory masking, have been justified, and what the ramifications have been for society, the economy, and public health. Dr. Bhakdi and Dr. Reiss provide dates, facts, and background information.

Corona, False Alarm? provides you with sound information and substantiated facts, and encourages you to form your own opinion on the corona crisis.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Truth

Doesn’t advocate where this could go, but it clearly shows the corruption for control and totalitarianism. Anyone who has any understanding of the 20th century and its bloodshed, can put a two piece puzzle together.

why the fear mongering?

the information presented in this book just leaves me asking more questions. covid19 was covered very well up to the point of publishing. the questions are more in line with what are our leaders really up to? and just as I had previously suspected. why are the media building up the hype beyond what covid19 really is? then I started asking who owns our media? and who is responsible for spreading the misinformation? I don't typically go for conspiracy propaganda. but can't help thinking this one stinks of it(covid19), on a global scale... and we are the target. in ancient times they considered keeping the general public illiterate was the way to keep the masses under control. unfortunately in more recent times they used fear.... previously through religion.... and now through science. in previous world wars our forefathers fought for our rights and freedoms we have today. rights and freedoms it seems that are at stake right now! covid19 is real and the most vulnerable are at risk. listening to this book will help you make informed decisions as to how we can deal with this and move forward..... without the selection of what the media report and what they don't. any misuse of power and control should be condemned. they want fear... let's answer with love💕 where all in this together. bless you all. oh yeah! listening to this book

Read or Listen to this while you still can

Everything about this little tome is excellent. For those of us who are not buying what our governments, our politicians, our news media, Facebook, the WHO, Billy Gates and of course, radical leftist fascist fear-mongering policy makers wanna sell us (and will most likely require that we buy), this book is quite helpful in keeping us unflinchingly strong in our belief that we ... ALL of us... are being, have been, and will continue to be lied to about this virus.

VERY IMPORTANT!

This is a MEDIA EPIDEMIC, we need to be more afraid of ignorant government more so that this flu. We need to stand up for our rights before we are in concentration camps. Our rights are easily taken away through fear, then VERY hard to get back. "It's easier to be fooled, then to be convinced you have been fooled" Mark Twain

Short but useful

This book was the right price and the right length. It uses both clinical information and common sense observation necessary for me to come to a useful decision about how this “panic porn” virus is being exploited. “Never let a good crisis go to waste”: Rahm Emmanuel.

Premature Assessment

I was interested in hearing the counter claim against Covid 19 pandemic. The book would have more validity if the sting of SARS-Covid2 had not continued to ravish this country. Millions have contracted the disease in the US alone with over 300,000 deaths and counting. The author claims several time throughout this book, the virus is "over." Time has revealed this to simply be untrue. The author professes this virus "is not dealdy" at a time where the virus had not even began to rear it's ugly head. Even if one does subscribe to the notion the number of cases and deaths tracked thus far are "inflated" , the coronavirus death toll still surpasses the number of deaths from the flu multiple times over. The audacity to publish such nonsense while the virus continues to play out is irresponsible. True SARS-COVID2 is more contagious than deadly but it's still deadly and a very real threat. It's complications range from no symptoms at all to death to organ failure to residual chronic fatigue and lasting months after recovery. Don't be fooled. This virus is real- ask anyone who has been ill from it and actually had to recover. It is now December 2020. We all know someone (a friend or family member) who has contracted this disease young and old; some of whom have never been seriously ill a day in their lives. It's happening all over the world. It's not coincidence- it's Corona.

well put together

this was an interesting listen. I learned a few new things; details about other viruses i hadn't been aware of and papers written by people I hadn't known of. this publication sparked my curiosity and now I need to know more details on hospitalizations in previous years.

An eye opener. A must read. An excellent presentation of the real information that every citizen of the world ought to be aware of - and ASAP. Thank you Doctors. We all need to be asking serious questions of our elected representatives and those who advised them

A MUST READ!!!

I was looking for information not confirmation and that is what I found in this book. If you doubt the validity of how the media and government are dealing with coronavirus, and need evidence to prove this to yourself or others, read this book. If you feel unqualified to debate CV matters and want info from verified professionals/doctors in the field of virology/epidemiology then read this book. This book is crammed with indisputable evidence from across the Western world. Facts the media of your country has not been telling you. Read and share it. I did! And will continue to.

The Corona, False Alarm?

This book is a brilliant summary of all aspects of fake pandemic which took place in December 2019 and continues still today. Highly recommended to read and hope one day soon there’s going to emerge second piece like this which will link the pandemic to “The Great Reset” plans which explains why it is taking place for so long period of time.

Needs updating

I wanted to get another point of view to the same old news being broadcast on general news outlets. Not really convinced because of the premature implication that the pandemic was coming to an end back in mid 2020. In Europe we 've had 2 more spikes of infections since then and as of January 2012 is at the worst its been both here in uk and in Germany where the authors are based. I'm still convinced there has to be a better way than locking down whole societies and surprised by our passive sheep-like succumbing to governments dictates that we 'stay at home'. Where is the debate? No, we are just told what to do and fined or condemned if we dont.

Intelegentaly thought out

This short book has been a joy to listen to. Intelligently thought out, clear, and an easy to follow critique of the government actions in this so called Pandemic. I had already begun to form my own opinoi s and beliefs before listening to the author now I have a far more clear and level headed understanding thanks to its findings. You are not asked to agree or take anything on faith and this I find refreshing... Get te book or audio.. It won't disappoint.

Excellent Book. Offers the reader a correct balance of information. It is recommended. The data and information is still relevant as of DEC 2020.
