Nick Hudson, The UGLY truth about the Covid-19 lockdowns

 Story at-a-glance

  • Pandemics ~ Data & Analytics (PANDA), co-founded by Nick Hudson, is using live data and open science to empower the public to exercise freedom of choice and preserve free societies
  • Hudson explains the ugly truth about COVID-19, which is that the world is being needlessly crippled by fear due to a false narrative
  • The pandemic response has created “homosapienophobia” — the idea that everyone is dangerous until proven healthy
  • Data compiled by PANDA found no relationship between lockdowns and COVID-19 deaths per million people; the disease followed a trajectory of linear decline regardless of whether or not lockdowns were imposed
  • With looming vaccine passports, the loss of personal liberties is at an unprecedented level, while people are generally living “enslaved by fear” — fear of infection or reinfection, “long COVID,” resurgence and mutant variants

Nick Hudson, an actuary and private equity investor, co-founded Pandemics ~ Data & Analytics (PANDA) in response to the many threats to civil rights and freedoms that have occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic response. While media and public health institutions have engaged in a campaign of smoke and mirrors — one that is perpetuating paralyzing fear, needlessly, to this day — data and facts don’t lie.

Hudson and his team at PANDA, which include a data analyst, economist, medical doctors, big data analyst and public health experts, are using live data1 and open science to empower the public to exercise freedom of choice and preserve free societies.2

Hudson spoke at the inaugural BizNews Investment Conference in March 2021, and his keynote address is above. He explains the ugly truth about COVID-19, which is that the world is being crippled by fear due to a false narrative. Anyone who challenges that narrative is being labeled as a lunatic, a menace or a danger to society, which is furthering the repression and unjustified fear.

Bringing COVID-19 Truth to Light

George Washington famously said, “Truth will ultimately prevail where there are plans taken to bring it to light.”3 With that in mind, Hudson saw the “seeds of a great tragedy” being planted with the false COVID-19 narrative, and has made it a mission to get the truth out.  So, what is the reality about the pandemic? According to Hudson:4

A virus that presents high risk to few and negligible risk to most hit some regions Few are susceptible to severe disease
There are several available treatments Asymptomatic people are not major drivers of disease
Lockdowns and mask mandates haven’t worked and instead caused great harm The vulnerable were hurt instead of helped

The misinformation has been spewed from the beginning, including by World Health Organization director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. In a March 3, 2020, media briefing, he stated, “Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died.  By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% of those infected.”5

But according to Hudson, the 3.4% represents case fatality rate (CFR), which is the number of deaths from COVID-19 divided by the number of cases of COVID-19, while the 1% is infection fatality rate (IFR), or the number of deaths divided by all infected individuals.

“By conflating these two separate points (CFR and IFR),” Hudson said, “Tedros was effectively lying.”  Quantitative scientist John Ioannidis, professor of medicine at the Stanford Prevention Research Center, calculated the IFR for COVID-19 in a review of 61 seroprevalence studies, which was a median of 0.23%, and 0.05% in people younger than 70.6

Based on this, the IFR for COVID-19 is lower than that of the flu.  And wouldn’t you know it, in a New England Journal of Medicine editorial published March 26, 2020, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and colleagues wrote that “the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza.”7

The media have suppressed this fact, Hudson noted, along with the fact that there’s a 1,000 times difference in mortality among those younger than 19 and those older than 70 — something that should have been taken into account in the pandemic response.

Is COVID-19 Really a ‘Novel Virus’?

Further inflaming widespread fear is the idea that COVID-19 is a “novel virus,” which makes it sound like it’s something humans have never encountered before.  But is it really?  According to Hudson:

“The reality is that the coronavirus is a very close relative, not even a separate subspecies, a very close relative of the 2003 SARS virus.  There are seven related coronaviruses known to cause disease in humans, probably many others, and four of them are in general circulation.

Annual, global circulation.  So the naming of this disease is terribly inconsistent.  This is really a rose by any name, SARS.  A variant of SARS. It’s not novel.”

One study even found that 81% of people not exposed to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, were still able to mount an immune response against it, which “suggests at least some built-in immune protection from SARS-CoV-2 …”8

Nonetheless, Maria Van Kerkhove, WHO’s technical lead for the COVID-19 pandemic, stated that “a majority of the world’s population is susceptible to infection from this virus.”9 This is the first of two key elements that, Hudson said, lead to “homosapienophobia” — the idea that everyone is dangerous until proven healthy.

The idea of universal susceptibility to COVID-19 is nonsense, Hudson noted, as was demonstrated early on with the Diamond Princess cruise ship. Among the 3,711 passengers and crew onboard the Diamond Princess, 712 (19.2%) tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, and of these 46.5% were asymptomatic at the time of testing. Of those showing symptoms, only 9.7% required intensive care and 1.3% (nine) died.10

PANDA data also showed that, starting in February 2021, there was not universal susceptibility to the virus. Their data showed cumulative COVID-19 deaths per million people. In Africa, Southeast Asia and Oceania, the population fatality rate was 112 per million compared to 710 per million in Europe and the Americas.

As for Africa, Southeast Asia and Oceania, Hudson said, “the population fatality rate there almost isn’t an epidemic. In a typical year, they’d have 10,000 deaths per million from all causes.”

Fear Mongering Over Asymptomatic Spread

The second element that enables the doctrine of “everyone being a danger” to continue is the idea of asymptomatic spread driving disease. “I was absolutely aghast to find out the poor quality of the science” behind it, Hudson said.

One of the seminal papers involved one woman who reportedly infected 16 colleagues while she was asymptomatic.11 The study was widely used to suggest that asymptomatic spread was occurring, but controversy later ensued over whether the woman was actually asymptomatic when the others were infected or if she was symptomatic and being treated for flu-like symptoms at the time.12

In June 2020, Kerkhove also made it very clear that people who have COVID-19 without any symptoms “rarely” transmit the disease to others. But in a dramatic about-face, WHO then backtracked on the statement just one day later. June 9, 2020, Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of WHO’s emergencies program, quickly backpedaled Van Kerkhove’s statement, saying the remarks were “misinterpreted or maybe we didn’t use the most elegant words to explain that.”13

“It’s utter, utter nonsense,” Hudson said, adding that Fauci also stated in January 2020, “asymptomatic transmission has never been the driver of outbreaks. The driver of outbreaks is always a symptomatic person.”14

A JAMA Network Open study later found, in December 2020, that asymptomatic transmission is not a primary driver of infection within households.15 A study in Nature Communications also found “there was no evidence of transmission from asymptomatic positive persons to traced close contacts.”16

Lockdown Madness

The myth of widespread asymptomatic spread is what was used to justify worldwide lockdowns of healthy people. “Bruce Aylward will go down in history as a criminal of immense stature,” Hudson said, referring to Aylward’s role as the head of a WHO team that visited Wuhan, China, and concluded lockdowns were working to stop COVID-19 spread.17

“He takes a delegation to China, spends a few days, then comes back and says everyone should follow China’s response, the doctrine of universal susceptibility,” Hudson said. Yet, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic official guidelines for pandemic response plans recommend against large-scale quarantine of the healthy.

In fact, WHO wrote that during an influenza pandemic, quarantine of exposed individuals, entry and exit screening and border closure are “not recommended in any circumstance.”18

Likewise, in 2021 a study published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation found no significant benefits on COVID-19 case growth in regions using more restrictive nonpharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) such as mandatory stay‐at‐home and business closure orders (i.e., lockdowns).19

Data compiled by PANDA also found no relationship between lockdowns and COVID-19 deaths per million people. The disease followed a trajectory of linear decline regardless of whether or not lockdowns were imposed.

What isn’t a lie, however, is that lockdowns cause a great deal of harm. Infant mortality, poverty, starvation and joblessness are on the rise, as are delays in medical treatment and diagnosis, psychological disorders among youth, suicide and deaths of despair.

Education has been disrupted for an estimated 1.6 billion children, Hudson said, and a survey of 2,000 U.S. adults revealed that 1 in 6 Americans started therapy for the first time during 2020. Nearly half (45%) of the survey respondents confirmed that the COVID-19 pandemic was the driving reason that triggered them to seek a therapist’s help.20 According to Hudson:

“Perhaps the hardest thing for me to swallow about all of this is in undergraduate epidemiology, it is a well-known finding that when you are confronted with a disease with sharp edge graduation, as you are with coronavirus, measures to generally suppress the spread of the disease have the effect, reliably, of shifting the disease burden onto the vulnerable, who we should be protecting. They worsen coronavirus mortality.”

Mask Rhetoric Is Misleading

It’s been touted that face masks are essential to stopping the spread of COVID-19 and could save 130,000 lives in the U.S. alone.21 But in 2019, the World Health Organization analyzed 10 randomized controlled trials and concluded, “there was no evidence that face masks are effective in reducing transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.”22

Only one randomized controlled trial has been conducted on mask usage and COVID-19 transmission, and it found masks did not statistically significantly reduce the incidence of infection.23

You may remember that in the early days of the pandemic, face masks were not recommended for the general public. In February 2020, Christine Francis, a consultant for infection prevention and control at WHO headquarters, was featured in a video, holding up a disposable face mask.

She said, “Medical masks like this one cannot protect against the new coronavirus when used alone … WHO only recommends the use of masks in specific cases.”24 As of March 31, 2020, WHO was still advising against the use of face masks for people without symptoms, stating that there is “no evidence” that such mask usage prevents COVID-19 transmission.25

But by June 2020, the rhetoric had changed. Citing “evolving evidence,” WHO reversed their recommendation and began advising governments to encourage the general public to wear masks where there is widespread transmission and physical distancing is difficult.26 Yet that same day, June 5, 2020, WHO published an announcement stating:27

“At present, there is no direct evidence (from studies on COVID-19 and in healthy people in the community) on the effectiveness of universal masking of healthy people in the community to prevent infection with respiratory viruses, including COVID-19.”

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention did a similar about-face on mask usage, citing a study of two hair dressers in Missouri, who were reportedly symptomatic with COVID-19 and styled 139 clients’ hair.

None of the clients tested positive for COVID-19, which the CDC suggested was because they and the stylists wore masks.28 Hudson believes, however, that the customers were probably young and not susceptible to the virus in the first place.

Another study published in the CDC’s journal Emerging Infectious Diseases stated, “We did not find evidence that surgical-type face masks are effective in reducing laboratory-confirmed influenza transmission, either when worn by infected persons (source control) or by persons in the general community to reduce their susceptibility.”29

PANDA data also showed no differences in transmission in states with mask mandates and those without. Still, health officials are now advising you should double or triple up on masks to make them work better.

Vaccines Being Sold as a Ticket to Freedom

People who stand to make countless billions out of COVID-19 vaccines are now selling them as a ticket to freedom, Hudson states:

“How convenient that we now have a logic that tells us that we need to vaccinate 7.8 billion people for a disease that has a mean survival rate of 99.95% for people under the age of 70. The profiteering here is naked. It is transparent.”

It’s a sad situation when teenagers, who aren’t at high risk, are lining up for vaccines just to get their freedoms back, he adds. When you add in all the other inconsistencies and lies — PCR tests that are not capable of diagnosing infectiousness, inflated death numbers, restrictions on travel, media propaganda and arbitrary rules, like the CDC’s recent change in physical distancing in classrooms from 6 feet to 3 feet30 — it’s as though we’re living in an Orwellian reality.

With looming vaccine passports, the loss of personal liberties is at an unprecedented level, while people are generally “enslaved by fear” — fear of infection or reinfection, “long COVID,” resurgence and mutant variants. “The underpinnings of our civilization are under threat,” Hudson noted, and we have a choice. “We’ve been pushed up against a precipice, will we be pushed off or will we push back?”

He urges people to support the Great Barrington Declaration, which calls for “focused protection” and finding a middle ground between locking down an entire economy and just “letting it rip.” As of April 4, 2021, the declaration has collected 41,890 signatures from medical practitioners and over 13,796 signatures from medical and public health scientists.31

In addition, the declaration is open for public signatures and has collected 764,089 from concerned citizens around the world. The website allows you to read and sign the declaration, answers many frequently asked questions, shares the science behind the recommendations and explains how the declaration was written.

PANDA also published a protocol for reopening society “to provide a road map out of the damaging cycle of lockdowns.”32 Hudson quoted Nelson Mandela, who stated courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. We all need to strive for courage and support awareness campaigns aimed at stopping the harmful narrative, relieving fear and protecting future freedom.

The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) recently posted more than 50 video presentations from the pay-for-view Fifth International Public Conference on Vaccination held online October 16 to 18, 2020, and made them available to everyone for free.

The conference’s theme was “Protecting Health and Autonomy in the 21st Century” and it featured physicians, scientists and other health professionals, human rights activists, faith community leaders, constitutional and civil rights attorneys, authors and parents of vaccine injured children talking about vaccine science, policy, law and ethics and infectious diseases, including coronavirus and COVID-19 vaccines.

In December 2020, a U.K. company published false and misleading information about NVIC and its conference, which prompted NVIC to open up the whole conference for free viewing. The conference has everything you need to educate yourself and protect your personal freedoms and liberties with respect to your health.

Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity. I was a speaker at this empowering conference and urge you to watch these video presentations before they’re censored and taken away by the technocratic elite.

  1. I would be compromising myself by not objecting to this alien agenda crap being proffered on this blog. It’s a detriment to the blogs credibility. It adds nothing but distraction from important and pertinent issues.
    I’ll say no more.

    1. Makes you wonder if that’s the point of it. The alien agenda is reaching mainstream, even being promoted on the Tucker Carlson show. Godsend may be a forerunner sent to spew it on alt blogs.

      We would be crazy not to be suspicious of the kind of ‘info’ like this that conveniently provides a common enemy for the people and an emergency that will require the surrender of the rest of our civil liberties. It’s a narrative ripe for use and abuse by the usual liars who plot for total control over us. They’ll need a backup if the climate change farce doesn’t work out after Covid.

      So I watched “Mars Attacks!” after you mentioned it, Will. Not Burton’s best movie, but it’s pretty funny the way the humans keep thinking their highest aspirations are what unites them with the aliens, and the aliens use this to draw the suckers in time after time, only to destroy them just for a laugh.

      Anyway, we don’t need aliens to exploit humanity; we have people for that.

      1. Tucker is playing a MISDIRECTION game with the hackneyed UFO coverage. The ALIENS landed long ago, are WALKING AMONG US and are now in the final stage of their AGENDA! Don’t be surprised if TPTB play the ALIEN INVASION card – Werner von Braun warned us about this! It will likely be a HOLOGRAPHIC SHOW – similar to 911!

  2. I don’t always agree with David Icke. However, this time he nails it on the sham-demic. 1.The lockdowns are no doubt designed to destroy independent livlihoods. But is that the most important aim? Or is it 2. making you take the crackzine? 3. Taking away freedom as we know it… “the powers that be” imply is temporary; to deal with an emergency.
    4. Dividing us into the “I’m safe but he’s dangerous and doesn’t care” camps… is working beyond their wildest wet dreams
    5. The perfect cover for mail in voting by pallet truck which…
    6. Gets rid of Donald Trump
    7. Vaccine Passports to buy, sell and travel
    8. The Universal Basic Income and destruction of cash purchase and decimation of private commerce between individuals

    I bet I left ten out. Icke says it so well… the interconnection.

    1. All true – and all part of the ALIEN AGENDA to lock down and maximize their CONTROL over humanity – and set the stage for the ANWO [Alien New World Order = SLAVERY].

  3. Good thing the scamdemic is fading out and fake mass shooting season is gearing up. One thing I saw with the real mass shooting that happened in Vail. The story never changed. I knew both the killer and one of his victims. Jim who took 5 rounds from a 1911 45 cal and not only lived to tell the tale, he came back to drink in the same bar he was gunned down in. That blew my mind. The bar was only closed one day and when it reopened, they changed nothing about the way they operated. Brave and bold beyond my greatest expectation. Three men were shot, only one died. Rossi the killer was apprehended without incident cowering under a table. He got life plus 80 years. Viet Nam Vet and Big Pharma meds played a role.

    Contrast that story with the biggest load of horseshit to ever come down the pike with the FED EX shooting. The worst crisis acting yet for witnesses… they are being called Cheech and Chong.

  4. I am so burned out on the Kung Flu Up Your Ass coverage I can’t take any more. The Hospital here has become so powerful you would not believe it. The colossal size and financial might of Vail Health (dorky ass name for a hospital) have started to eclipse that of the Vail Ski Area. There must be 300 orthopedic surgeons and they just finished another whole building in edition to the enormous expansion of the original structure. Every time they expand they take control of yet another large sector of available housing for their ever growing staff. There seems to be no end to their growth with satelite buildings up and down the valley. No one can oppose anything they do. The major radio station and newspaper are boiler plate leftist claptrap. If I hear them say one one more time “we are all in this together” and “be safe” I just want to scream.

    1. He’s a Covid from the trenches update: All of the Vail Ski Patrol were vaccinated en masse… only 80% called in sick the next day. You will never hear about this. Hush Hush for sure. The more I listen to Icke on his latest, the more I think he’s got more hard news on this than anyone. One nurse in England said it’s genocide.

    2. Hey Dave ,just sell your house and leave Colorado. Buy a used RV and Boondock around America. That’s what I’m doing . America is done. But my family and I are happily living in the real world.

      1. I’m way ahead of you Salty… 35 foot Bounder I bought last year for my Firefighters Tribute Festival HQ. Solid drive train… most other systems need serious work. I was thinking about making a pilot of its resurrection for Motor Trend TV. I love those car restoration shows.

  5. I find it more than discouraging that we are watching our country going down the toilet from various forces, while we are entertaining an alien agenda on this blog. Seems nothing is to be taken seriously any longer.
    With this attitude, some of us most certainly deserve what’s coming.

    1. One thing is 100% CERTAIN: The ALIENS are NOT coming – THEY are already here, WALKING AMONG US and WATCHING US in their AVCs – Alien Visitation Craft!! Now, we are INFESTED with HHAs – Hybrid Humanoid ALIENS. The Cattle Mutilations [reproductive organ removal] and Alien Abductions of the 1950s had a SINISTER purpose! And let’s not forget about Roswell, Area 51, etc.

    2. Lol 😂 Same here that’s why I’m done with most of the blogs I follow. I’ve been gaslighted and gang stalked for too long. I’m in Florida for four months , what’s your email address? America is done and we have to live in the real world. The technocrats want us to live in this AI controlled society.

      1. you heard of the Stones’ Steel Wheels tour back in ’89 ? Well this next one will be called the Steel Wheel Chair Tour. At some point we will have to have a serious discussion on what kind of world we are going to leave for Keith Richards…

  6. In the beginning there were no masks to be had anyway. I started fashioning my own out of paper towels and ordinary rubber bands. Later I switched to Clorox wipes because the material is more durable, while at the same time more breathable. At one doctor’s visit the nurse criticized my Clorox wipe mask; and I said, “It meets the legal requirement. It’s a ‘non medical grade’ face covering.” Later on she confessed to hating being forced to wear a mask all day long herself.
    The type of masks that are widely being used would not be suitable for a wood worker using a power sander or electric saw that was creating particulate dust. If a mask can’t properly protect from saw dust, how can it properly protect from a virus? Supposedly all this was done to “flatten the curve,” but what I noticed is the death count just kept rising day after day in a completely linear fashion. There was never any curve and nothing was ever flattened.
    As is pointed out in the article, much so called “medical advice” was completely contradictory. I remember a case where a person was ticketed or arrested for not wearing a mask when kayaking alone out on the ocean. I never trusted any of the contradictory advice early on and don’t to this day. I’m not convinced that claims about the efficacy of the vaccine are any more accurate than the claims made about inexpensive ineffective paper masks.
    How do we know the vaccine even works when they say it doesn’t actually protect you from becoming infected, it just makes the infection less severe?
    Well how do we know that?
    As is pointed out in the article, many people who have been in close contact with an infected person don’t get sick. Older people tend to die at an increased rate anyway. I have heard of a few cases where a person who was considered to be healthy caught the virus and died. But I’ve also heard of many cases where healthy people were vaccinated and died within a very short period of time too, as in hours or within just a few days.
    All of this combined with a very obviously fraudulent US presidential election. Is the vaccine any more reliable that an election that has never been properly audited?
    I doubt it.
    Some people are eager to take the vaccine, but for myself, I’m adopting a wait and see position.
    At least one if not two vaccines have already been taken off the market due to death from blood clots.
    I just don’t know who to trust or believe, but there are many people I do not trust, and at the top of the list are Bill Gates, Anthony Fauci, and anyone who claims the US presidential election was above reproach when no proper audits have been performed.

  7. The UGLIEST part of the lock-downs is that they are just part of the COVID-19-related ALIEN AGENDA to 1) CULL the Human Herd, 2) DISRUPT Human Civilization and 3) DESTROY Human Civilization. The ALIENS custom-designed the multi-purpose virus to maximize their CONTROL over the Human Herd!

      1. The pieces of the ALIEN AGENDA Puzzle are all over the Internet and you’ll find many on my 3 websites, Blogger blog and my comments here, including links [like If you put all the pieces together, a very clear picture of the ALIEN AGENDA emerges! THEY LIVE [film] and WALKING AMONG US [book] and the William Pawelec interview and Phil Schneider videos are all important pieces of the Puzzle. And don’t forget the Jeffey Lash story [Pacific Palisades, CA.]


      2. thanks so much. I’m checking out all of these names.
        So the aliens cooked up this witch’s brew to cull and corrupt human beings. I’d like to meet them. Must of affected Donald Trump. Have you seen his orange/red face recently….he’s lost weight, must be fewer Big Macs and KFC.
        I’ve had KFC in Australia…they get the huge chickens down under, one leg is more than I can eat.


      3. When I was in Oz, I took a liking to “Pie Floaters” [Adelaide] and “2-UP” . 🙂 The Donald is an enigma and appears to have FOLDED – possibly under EXTREME PRESSURE/THREATS [like having Melania and his family “Khashoggied”].

      4. It may be that you have already been brainwashed [by ALIENS and their MSM Agents] to become catatonic [“deer in the headlights” syndrome] when hearing or reading ALIEN [similar to 911]. That happened to Joe Biden with 911. In that case, it may be too late for you, unless you are DE-PROGRAMMED. Such a victim of ALIEN MIND CONTROL will be unable to SEE the truth about 911, for example, even if he/she read Jim’s excellent book about 911! Remember, the GREAT DECEIVER [Devil] and his demonic minions [including DemonicRATS] are busily at work, trying to DECEIVE [if possible] , even the “Elect”! DO NOT BE DECEIVED!

      5. Here’s another piece of the Puzzle: ANCIENT ALIENS TV series on The History Channel. There are an estimated 200-400 BILLION stars in our Milky Way galaxy. There are an estimated 1.5 TRILLION galaxy s in the observable Universe. You do the math – about the probability of [more] intelligent life out there.

      6. And how close is the closest star to Earth?

        Proxima Centauri is 4.2 light-years from Earth, a distance that would take about 6,300 years to travel using current technology.

        [ Imagine just what sort of intelligence and technology it takes to master Space travel! ANY ALIENS who can get here in AVCs must view us as termites or cattle, at best]. Some of THEM apparently like our planet – and want to relocate here! THAT’S the ALIEN AGENDA! 😉

      7. The currently “visiting” ALIENS are from the Belt of Orion. If we could travel at the speed of light, it would take 736 years to get there, but at our current fastest rate of space travel, it would take around 18,000 years! These [and other, past ALIEN visitors] possess MIND-BOGGLING technology and Intelligence! It’s a good thing THEY consider us “cattle” – like “Talmudic Jews”!

      8. The closest known galaxy to us is the Canis Major Dwarf Galaxy, at 25,000 light years from the Sun.

      9. The Andromeda Galaxy, also known as Messier 31, M31, or NGC 224 and originally the Andromeda Nebula, is a barred spiral galaxy approximately 2.5 million light-years from Earth and the nearest major galaxy to the Milky Way.
