Once again, I did some actual research for you. Yes, I’m sure it’s not something that you’re used to. Most people in the media just regurgitate what other people say and don’t look into the details.
Well, I read the actual Cape Cod study that the CDC is using to recommend that the country wears masks again because of the increased COVID-19 cases among vaccinated individuals. While reading it, I found something usual that really stood out.
I couldn’t understand why, among the case numbers they came up with, it was 85% men who were infected with COVID-19.
I’ve been studying the pandemic for a while now and the data of people being infected has pretty much been 50-50 between men and women. One sex isn’t really more susceptible to COVID-19 than the other. There have been exceptions plus or minus but not something as dramatic as in this study. Not a jump of 35%.
So lo and behold, over the weekend, after doing more research, I found my answer.
Yahoo News reported that the study was done “based on an outbreak at a Cape Cod beach party” and went on to say that the researchers pointed out major caveats in the study. Most news outlets didn’t report these caveats including the fact that the study only included people who got tested. The study also said that the setting wasn’t representative of the entire county because the beach town is a popular gay destination and it was during a major summer party event.
Even the New York Times did a story on this and said that Provincetown is a community of “health-conscious, left-learning northeasterners, known as a vacation mecca for gay men.”
During the July 4th weekend in this gay resort town, 60K mostly mask-less people jammed into a small area to party, sweating on dance floors and at house parties all over the place.
The New York Times said that so many gay men poured into the area for Circuit Party week during the first part of July, that social media was full of photos of long lines outside of clubs that went on for blocks.
So what is Circuit Party week? It’s a yearly carnival in Provincetown. It’s a weeklong celebration of LGBTQ with life-parties, art fairs, a costume ball, pool parties and many other activities which ends in a parade. Even though Provincetown only has a population of about 3000 people, the parade can attract 90,000 people.
So it was the end of party week when Steve Katsurinis, Chair of the town Board of Health in Provincetown, started getting reports of COVID-19 cases, ALL GAY MEN, mostly between the ages of 30 and 35.
After all of this…what are we left with?
Well it looks like the political Biden CDC cherry-picked a study that they could use to continue to tyrannically rule over us – a study that, surprisingly, doesn’t represent what’s really going on in the country and our regular interactions everyday.
