Honesty in medical publishing, meaning publication on the basis of transparent rigorous review and impartiality, is of particular importance to medicine and public health. The outcomes of such publications contribute to saving or killing people.
An interview with Keuringsdienst van Waarheid and Nick Hudson about his recent presentation, Time to reopen Society. Whether you are in favour of or against the corona measures, believe in the pandemic or not, are a vaccine refuser or a sleeve-rag; this is a presentation that everyone should have seen and heard!
PANDA’s Nick Hudson in conversation with Sanjeev Sabhlok, moral philosopher and economist based in Melbourne, Australia. After many years in civil service in both India and Australia, Sanjeev left the civil service to protest the Victorian government’s pandemic policies.
PANDA’s Peter Castleden in conversation with John Church who developed a simple IFR model to examine the Covid-19 pandemic worldwide.
Peter Castleden and Piet Streicher of PANDA unpack the modelling and predictions that PANDA made in 2020 with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic. This retrospective look at what PANDA got right and wrong in the predictions also provides insight into how the models are made.
Doctor Denis Rancourt, from PANDA, examines COVID-19 with Dr Peter Breggin discussing the multiple measures being used during the pandemic, from wearing masks to washing our hands. They evaluate the counting of deaths and the testing for cases. Dr. Rancourt approaches these questions as an experienced scientist with a very broad general interest in the world and its affairs. They have one strong disagreement, but open science is about respecting and allowing unexpected opinions. A thoughtful, informed conversation.
PANDA’s Ian McGorian discusses current weaknesses in official COVID-19 statistics and gives an in-depth explanation of those that matter. Whilst the official narrative on the COVID-19 pandemic can best be described by Disraeli’s quote, “Lies, damned lies and statistics”, in a webinar with the Centre for Risk Analysis, McGorian clearly explains the facts about COVID-19 using PANDA’s analysis of the available data.
Scott Atlas discusses the human and economic costs of the lockdown, as well as the failure to model the impacts of the lockdown in advance of implementation.
Epidemiological modellers have made themselves irrelevant by producing work that failed to align with reality and they remain unrepentant in the face of overwhelming evidence of their failings. They made themselves irrelevant by choosing to support the hand that feeds them and allowing their work to be used to justify violations of our constitutional rights through illegal lockdowns that destroy lives and livelihoods on a daily basis.
In this CRA webinar, Nick Hudson, co-founder of PANDA assesses the human and economic cost of an extended lockdown. PANDA is a multidisciplinary group seeking to inform an appropriate policy response to the Covid-19 pandemic in South Africa.
