MENDOCINO Co., 8/24/21 — Mendocino County Public Health announced another death from COVID-19 today, an 88-year old woman from Covelo who was unvaccinated. The county has announced a total of two deaths in the last two days and five deaths from the virus since Monday, August 16, including the youngest person to die in Mendocino County so far, a 41-year old woman from Willits. An additional 67 positive cases were also announced by public health today, and there are 18 people hospitalized and eight people in the intensive care unit.
Nine people have died from COVID-19 in the county since July 29 and there have been 1,113 new cases reported by the county since that date. There have been a total of 5,796 cases of COVID-19 in Mendocino County since the start of the pandemic, which means more than 19% of the total cases have been reported in the last month. The county’s 50th death during the pandemic was reported in early June.
According to today’s dashboard, there have been 183 cases of COVID-19 reported out of 48,044 vaccinated people in Mendocino County, putting the average vaccine efficacy rate locally at over 99.6%.

Here’s the announcement from public health:
Public Notice: Mendocino County Public Health has been notified of another Mendocino County resident who has been lost to the COVID-19 Virus. We send our condolences to her family and friends.
An 88 year old Covelo woman has been confirmed as Mendocino County’s 59th death. At this time Public Health asks all Mendocino County residents to exercise caution when placing themselves in situations that could expose them to COVID-19, especially considering the new more infectious Delta variant. Mendocino County Public Health asks that you follow all CDC and CDPH guidance’s at this time. Vaccination, masking and social distancing remain the best options for combating the COVID-19 Virus.
The individual in question was not vaccinated.
Of the 9 people that died since July 29th, how many of them were treated early? Just imagine if these health directors and Dr.s actually promoted/used effective proven therapeutics but instead they use a failed FauXi protocol that leads to death?
When the “public health” notice says that a fake vax is the best option for combating the CCP virus, you KNOW they are not using science. Any Dr that is not paid off will tell you that natural mucosal immunity is the best. Which is why once you get it, you don’t keep getting it, you know, like the vaxxed people are experiencing.
You’re an idiot.
CB stands for CryBaby
Lol that’s all you got? Sure he’s laughing 😂
The Weaponization Of Medicine
THURSDAY, AUG 26, 2021 – 09:30 PM
Authored by Paul Rosenberg
Whether or not we can express it clearly, or even perceive it clearly, I think nearly every adult grasps that medicine is being used as a weapon.
I am not a doctor, but I’ve been surrounded by medical professionals since my youth, beginning with my mom, who was not only an RN, but Head Nurse at two different hospitals. I’ve also been involved with science for a long time.
I’ll be brief, making just five primary points. But we’ve been losing science and we’ve been losing medicine; that is flatly unacceptable.
#1: Science is not consensus.
Ten, one hundred, or a million people, all draped in lab coats and saying the same thing, does NOT make it so. In fact, it matters not at all. It’s nothing but theater, and it’s anti-science.
All science is, really, is a process of testing ideas; it is not an organization, it is not based upon authority (it’s inherently anti-authority), and it is very certainly not allied with power. All that matters in science are verifiable results.
#2: Medicine stands apart from, and above, politics.
Medicine is the application of science to the furtherance of human health. Politics is the use of persuasion and power to rule masses of humans. These are fully separate disciplines. To place politics over medicine is to subjugate and degrade medicine: it’s a path backwards into darkness.
I’ll leave details on this point to working medical practitioners, who can provide them with far greater specificity than I can… provided they’re not too frightened to do so.
#3: Peer review no longer means much.
Again I won’t go into great detail, but peer review has been captured by academic hierarchies and almost fully separated from science proper. It has become a tool of institutional power, wielded by academics who have sold out science for the favors of power and politics.
At one time, “peer review” referred to the honest replication of experiments. That time is past.
#4: Medicine and science have nothing to do with social pressure.
Once “medicine” and “science” are mixed with social pressure, they are no longer science or medicine.
At that point they are instruments of thuggery, and nothing more.
#5: If you don’t read multiple scientific papers, especially from rebels and cast-outs, you simply don’t know.
You can pretend you know, of course, and you can be sure that agents of the status quo will provide you with passable reasons to repeat their slogans, but you won’t actually know.
What you see on TV is propaganda. What you see on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube is pre-censored. If you want to really know, you’ll have to find the scientific papers that address your question… and you’ll need papers that are rejected by televised authorities. If you don’t, all you’ll have are pre-censored conclusions, the underlying facts of which may or may not be reliable.
At this point, if you don’t include “conspiracy theory” research, you’re more or less stuck with Orwell’s Ministry of Truth. Sad but mostly true.
The Problem Is Emotional Weakness
The problem underlying all of this is not intellectual strength, it’s emotional strength. It’s not that people are stupid, it’s that they haven’t the strength to face unauthorized truth:
Having been trained in submission to authority, to then speak against an authority is terrifying. And so people find ways to ignore truth (which has no backing but itself) and to sanctify authority, which is backed by everything from shame to guns.
The fear of appearing stupid – of being publicly exposed as stupid – can be overwhelming. And with “important” people tearing up anyone not in lockstep with them, defiance seems too expensive.
Power being wrong calls too much into question. If the high and mighty can be publicly wrong, repeatedly and adamantly, what can’t be called into question? And if everything can be questioned, one must face the world alone.
Once people act upon fear, they can either turn against it and admit their error, or they can defend their errors at length. And if the people who thrive on those fears maintain a stream of frights and slogans… anyone on “the other side” becomes a heretic, to be hunted down and forced to submit.
None of these things have any connection to truth, only to power and intimidation. And that is anti-science, no matter how much it masquerades as science.
