Milan Italy Was Overwhelmed With Viral Lung Infections as Recently as 2018 Without Feeding a Global Hysteria
How unusual is it for a certain number of localities world-wide to get swamped during the flu season? Apparently not that unusual at all
Editor’s note: This is a question I keep asking, how unusual is it for a few localities in the world to have their intensive care capacities swamped with severe lower respiratory infection cases during the flu season? We are supposed to think hospitals in a few cities in the world becoming swamped in this way is highly irregular and a sign COVID-19 is a threat like no other but is that really true? Is it the case hospitals never get swamped, or is it the case the media and thus the public never before paid much attention?
One thing that is clear is that SARS-CoV-2 is a mild virus that is extremely unlikely to kill you if you become infected (see 1,2,3). Another thing which is clear is that there is no excess mortality to indicate this influenza-pneumonia-coronavirus season has been particularly bad and that SARS-CoV-2 is, therefore, killing more people than whatever coronavirus it mutated from (see 1,2). Its only remaining claim to be a greater threat than what we deal with every year without governments subjecting us to house arrest is that it has the ability to overwhelm hospitals and force doctors to ration care as is happening now in Milan and happened before in Wuhan. Well here follows a (machine-translated) report from 2018 which makes it clear the intensive care capacity of a modern European metropolis was overwhelmed just two years ago — that metropolis just happens to be Milan.
This particular swamping may not have been quite as severe, but that’s not the point. The point is that if we can find a previous less severe case of swamping even for Milan itself it would indicate that globally they are not at all unusual.
How many more such reports could we find if we dug into local news? How many localities in the world are overwhelmed right now by viral lung diseases that are not COVID-19 but aren’t being reported on?
Machine-translated from Italian:
Record numbers. The complications of the flu, especially pneumonia, put the reanimations in crisis: 48 cases of seriously ill patients hospitalized from Christmas to today in the intensive care of Policlinico, San Raffaele, San Gerardo of Monza and San Matteo of Pavia, the reference hospitals in Lombardy for the use of the Ecmo, the machine that replaces the lungs. [In other words, they had 48 critical pneumonia cases which took up their entire ECMO capacity, meaning they likely had many more patients who required intensive care short of ECMO such as IV and ventilators.] The problems overlap: difficulties in welcoming new patients, postponement of scheduled surgical interventions and suspended reservations for the bedside of the resuscitations intended to welcome the sick after the operations, extraordinary shifts (free) for doctors and nurses called back from holidays.
Giuseppe Foti, at the helm of the San Gerardo emergency in Monza, does the math: «Three patients hospitalized until December 22nd, 6 from December 22nd to 31st, 8 from January 1st to today. The problem is serious. From this week we have been forced to suspend bookings of ICU beds for surgical patients with scheduled interventions ». Federico Pappalardo, head of intensive care at San Raffaele, admits: “Today other non-urgent operations will be skipped”. Giacomo Grasselli, medical director of the resuscitation of the Policlinico, is in the same situation: “The risk of postponing elective surgery for patients who need postoperative care in intensive care is a problem on the agenda”. Giorgio Antonio Iotti, head of intensive care at San Matteo di Pavia, spreads his arms:
According to doctors, the intervention of the Lombardy Region is urgent to overcome the problem: the Pirellone is called into question because today there is a lack of recognized coordination, also economically, of the work of the four hospitals.
Alberto Zangrillo, director of the San Raffaele Urgency Emergency Department, attacks: “The truth is that Minister Lorenzin did not worry nationally about refinancing the project, putting in difficulty especially Lombardy, a region on which for the high level the centers also unload the work of the other regions ». Grasselli insists: “The centralization of the patients who need the Ecmo literally saves the lives of patients who would otherwise die.”
And the thoughts of the doctors, gathered on Monday at the Policlinico to examine what to do, goes to the new mother who risked her life two days after giving birth, in early January, for a very serious respiratory failure following the flu and now in good condition thanks to the Ecmo. The same happened to a little girl, who got seriously worse following a fever and cough. The worst was feared for her too: “But our intervention with the machine that replaces the lungs saved her.” A great commitment, an enormous effort, which now make the institutions ask for recognition. To save other lives.
Meanwhile, the blood emergency widens , due to the flu virus that prevents many donors from going to collection centers. After the appeal of the Polyclinic, the virologist Roberto Burioni also reports difficulties at San Raffaele, with surgical operations suspended due to a lack of blood. And invites citizens to make their contribution.

VIRUSES AND GERMS DO NOT CAUSE DISEASE.
VIRUSES ARE NATURAL, ENDOGENOUS, HEALING, AND ADAPTIVE
FUNCTIONS OF THE HUMAN BODY. WHEN SOMEBODY HAS FALLEN ILL, IT IS THE JOB OF THE
VIRUS TO COME IN AND EXCRETE ALL THE TOXIC MATERIALS THE ILLNESS HAS LEFT
BEHIND. THERE IS NO SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE THAT PROVES VIRUSES CAUSE DISEASE, NOR
IS THERE ANY PROOF THAT VIRUSES ARE LIVING ORGANISMS, THAT CAN RECREATE ON
THEIR OWN. IT IS HOW WE LIVE, THINK, EAT, ACT, AND HANDLE STRESS THAT
DETERMINES THE CONDITION AND STRENGTH OF OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM. IN SIMPLER TERMS,
DISEASE IS CAUSED BY DEHYDRATION, MALNUTRITION, STRESS AND VACCINES. GERMS DO
NOT CAUSE DISEASE.
SINCE THE EARLY 1990S, GERMAN BIOLOGIST
DR. STEFAN LANKA HAS BEEN AT THE FOREFRONT OF CHALLENGING THE MEDICAL THEORY
STATING THAT VIRUSES ARE THE CAUSE OF INFECTIOUS DISEASES. ON NOVEMBER 24,
2011, DR. LANKA ANNOUNCED ON HIS WEBSITE THAT HE WOULD OFFER A PRIZE OF €
100,000 TO ANYONE WHO COULD PROVE THE EXISTENCE OF THE MEASLES VIRUS. IN
JANUARY 2012, DR. DAVID BARDENS TOOK DR. LANKA UP ON HIS PLEDGE. HE OFFERED SIX
PAPERS ON THE SUBJECT AND ASKED DR. LANKA TO TRANSFER THE € 100,000 TO HIS BANK
ACCOUNT. DR. LANKA REFUSED TO PAY AND WAS TAKEN TO COURT BY DR. BARDENS.
ON MARCH 12, 2015, THE DISTRICT COURT RAVENSBURG IN
SOUTHERN GERMANY RULED THAT THE CRITERIA OF THE ADVERTISEMENT HAD BEEN
FULFILLED ORDERING DR. LANKA TO PAY UP. DR. LANKA APPEALED THE RULING.
ON FEBRUARY 16, 2016, THE HIGHER REGIONAL COURT OF
STUTTGART (OLG) RE-EVALUATED THE FIRST RULING, JUDGING THAT DR. BARDENS DID NOT
MEET THE CRITERIA SINCE HE FAILED TO PROVIDE PROOF FOR THE EXISTENCE OF THE MEASLES
ON JANUARY 16, 2017, THE FIRST CIVIL SENATE OF THE
GERMAN FEDERAL COURT OF JUSTICE (BGH) CONFIRMED THE RULING OF THE OLG STUTTGART. CRITICS OF THE
JUDICIAL VERDICT ARGUE THAT DR. LANKA’S VICTORY IS SOLELY BASED ON HOW HE HAD
FORMULATED THE OFFER OF REWARD, NAMELY TO PAY THE € 100,000 FOR THE
PRESENTATION OF A SINGLE PUBLICATION OF EVIDENCE (WHICH DR. BARDENS WAS UNABLE
TO PROVIDE). THIS ARGUMENT, HOWEVER, DISTRACTS THE ATTENTION FROM THE ESSENTIAL
PROF. ANDREAS PODBIELSKI, WHO WAS ONE OF THE APPOINTED
EXPERTS AT THE TRIAL, STATED THAT EVEN THOUGH THE EXISTENCE OF THE MEASLES
VIRUS COULD BE CONCLUDED FROM THE SUMMARY OF THE SIX PAPERS SUBMITTED BY DR.
BARDENS, NONE OF THE AUTHORS HAD CONDUCTED ANY CONTROLLED EXPERIMENTS IN
ACCORDANCE WITH INTERNATIONALLY DEFINED RULES AND PRINCIPLES OF GOOD SCIENTIFIC
PRACTICE. PROF. PODBIELSKI CONSIDERS THIS LACK OF CONTROLLED EXPERIMENTS EXPLICITLY
AS THE “METHODOLOGICAL WEAKNESS” OF THESE PUBLICATIONS. THUS, AT THIS POINT, A
PUBLICATION ABOUT THE EXISTENCE OF THE MEASLES VIRUS THAT STANDS THE TEST OF
GOOD SCIENCE HAS YET TO BE DELIVERED.
FURTHERMORE, AT THE TRIAL IT WAS NOTED THAT CONTRARY TO
ITS LEGAL REMIT AS PER § 4 INFECTION PROTECTION ACT (IFSG) THE ROBERT KOCH
INSTITUTE (RKI), THE HIGHEST GERMAN AUTHORITY IN THE FIELD OF INFECTIOUS
DISEASES, HAS FAILED TO PERFORM TESTS FOR THE ALLEGED MEASLES VIRUS AND TO
PUBLISH THESE. THE RKI CLAIMS THAT IT MADE INTERNAL STUDIES ON THE MEASLES
VIRUS, HOWEVER, REFUSES TO HAND OVER OR PUBLISH THE RESULTS.
DR. LANKA SAID AFTERWARDS: “WITH THE SUPREME COURT
JUDGMENT IN THE MEASLES VIRUS TRIAL ANY NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL STATEMENTS
ON THE ALLEGED MEASLES VIRUS, THE INFECTIVITY OF MEASLES, AND ON THE BENEFIT
AND SAFETY OF VACCINATION AGAINST MEASLES, ARE SINCE THEN OF NO SCIENTIFIC
CHARACTER AND HAVE THUS BEEN DEPRIVED OF THEIR LEGAL BASIS.” DISEASE IS CAUSED
FROM HAVING A COMPROMISED IMMUNE SYSTEM….THIS HAPPENS FROM THE ABUSE WE PUT OUR
BODIES AND MINDS THROUGH. LINK TO THE DETAILS OF THE TRIAL HERE: https://learninggnm.com/SBS/documents/virus-trial.html
Instead of all kinds of conspiracy theories or such…how about reporting that Cuba and Russia are sending medical staff and equipment to help Italy. All this useless and confusing blah, blah, blah serves absolutely NO purpose other than confuse people even more.
Covid-19 might have amounted to little more than a successful Chinese fire drill, were it not for America’s blaming it for endless mistakes.
Now it turns out that Covid-19 was circulating outside China for months before it surfaced in Wuhan, borne by five US servicemen who, before they were hospitalized in isolation wards, infected 42 staff at their hotel, which was 300 yards from the wet market where the first outbreak was detected.
Testing showed that the hotel staff had infected the wet market people.
Expect an American climbdown within 48 hours.
Is that part of the contingent that was there for the Military Games?
Here’s the full story as of this morning: https://www.unz.com/article/last-man-standing/#comment-3788261
Thanks Godfree – that place is my safe space in times of craziness. Surprised it wasn’t on my fb feed.
There is no evidence of this. The first US military infection was in South Korea.
Here’s the evidence: https://www.unz.com/article/last-man-standing/#comment-3788261
That is evidence of nothing. It is a series of speculative posts by a group of anonymous internet posters. They are all guessing and one comment proves what I say.
” Right now the CDC is still refusing to share its data with the WHO or identify Patient Zero** to the American public–unprecedented behavior during a pandemic. ”
ie no one outside CDC has the evidence necessary to end the speculation. If you want to speculate then try speculating that the virus was deliberately planted in Wuhan by persons unknown posing as US servicemen.
Jews dont climb down from anything.
