Suggestions for Erie County’s new Executive Brenton Davis

Posted by M. C. on February 4, 2022

Dear Mr. Davis

We now have a new Erie County government leader that has respect for liberty with respect to mandatory masking.

What should be next is accurate covid information. Since the outbreak started the Erie County Health Department and it’s media mouthpiece David Bruce have given the public a tiny fraction of the story.

Some suggestions for information you should demand be made public are:

How many covid “cases” and hospitalizations are FROM covid vs WITH covid?

The CDC just announced 75% of covid deaths have 4!!! co-morbidities. We should be told how many and what types of co-morbidities there have been in Erie County.

What percentage of tests are PCR and what percentage can tell the difference between influenza and covid?

Can current tests differentiate influenza and covid?

How much federal CARES money has been received by local medicine for “cases”, “covid” deaths and ventilator use with co-morbidities noted?

Why has Erie County been promoting cloth mask use when Fauci now advises they are ineffective. Surgical masks have been around for over 100 years. It is telling that the medical still hasn’t figured out how well they work. Will surgeries now be performed using N95 masks? If not, why not.

What response would YOU expect?

Erie Times E-Edition Article – Pa. positive virus cases above 1,000 again

Posted by M. C. on July 25, 2020

Erie Times-News dutifully regurgitates this every day. Yet as the ET-N knows to ask but never does:

Yes the data is released in a day but what does the data represent? One day last week or a whole months data taken 2 months ago. As the ET-N itself has reported there are issues with knowing when tests were submitted.

As I have told the ET-N, the Erie County Health Department told me they don’t know whether they ever received contaminated CDC COVID test kits. No one else is asking, no one is telling, no one cares.

Quality Assurance seems unimportant.

The positives include anyone exposed to an infected person but not actually tested positive. Do they include positive antibody tests as well?

All we get is a number.

Florida and Texas are having data reliability issues regarding incredibly high positive rate reports, people dying for non-disease reasons, car and motorcycle accidents, and those never having having taken a test getting positive result notices.

Is PA’s QA any better?

It will be years, if ever, before we get the truth.


From wire reports

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania produced another day of more than 1,000 new confirmed coronavirus cases Friday, fueled by positive tests in Philadelphia and the Pittsburgh area as the state fights to tamp down rising case counts.

The Department of Health reported 1,213 additional confirmed virus cases — the most in a single-day report since May — and 22 new deaths. The virus has infected more than 105,000 people in Pennsylvania since the beginning of the pandemic. More than 7,100 have died, most of them in nursing homes.

Of the new positive cases, more than one-third are from Philadelphia and Allegheny County, the department said.

In July, Pennsylvania’s 14-day rate of new cases per 100,000 residents has increased by more than 50%, from below 60 to above 90.

The seven-day positivity rate — based on the Health Department’s daily public disclosures of the number of people who are newly confirmed to be positive and the number of people who tested negative — has gradually increased in July, from about 4.5% to 5.8%.

Deaths have declined from June to July, although hospitalizations are on the rise in July, according to state data.

Also Friday: Quarantine list: Pennsylvania officials have added two new states to a travel advisory that asks anyone coming from one of 20 potential coronavirus hotspots to self-quarantine for 14 days.

Missouri and Wyoming were added to an updated rundown that was released on Friday, July 24. The self-quarantine is not enforceable, and police are not stopping any out-ofstate travelers at borders. Airport questionnaires are not required, either.

“That’s up to each individual to, if you’ve gone to a state that we identify as a state that is of concern, and we keep changing that every week, then, you owe it to yourself, to your family, to your loved ones, to your co-workers, to self-quarantine,” Gov. Tom Wolf said during a news conference on Friday.

“It’s very fluid,” Wolf said.

“It’s really something that we’re doing to try to bring information to folks so that they can make informed decisions on their own. If they don’t care about their family or their co workers; I think a majority of people aren’t there.”

Here is the full list of states from the health department: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wyoming.

Show moves: The Pennsylvania National Horse Show will be will be held at the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center in Tampa, Florida. The move stems from the coronavirus pandemic, which has caused the closure of the PA Farm Show Complex & Expo Center, where the event has been held since its founding in 1946.
