(Natural News) Two California doctors who published a video to YouTube stating that the chances of dying from the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) in the Golden State are slim-to-none have had their content censored by the Google-owned platform.
In the nearly one-hour video, which is no longer available on YouTube because it supposedly “violated community guidelines,” Drs. Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi contend that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) has proven to be less deadly than anticipated. They state that the number of deaths is next to nil compared to California’s overall population number.
“We have 39.5 million people,” they explain. “If we just take a basic calculation and extrapolate that out, that equates to about 4.7 million cases throughout the state of California, which means this thing is widespread, that’s the good news.”
“We’ve seen 1,227 deaths in the state of California with a possible incidence or prevalence of 4.7 million,” they add. “That means you have a 0.03 (percent) chance of dying from COVID-19 in the state of California.”
For making these claims, however, YouTube quickly removed the video because it “disputes the efficacy of local health authority recommended guidance on social distancing that may lead others to act against that guidance.” In other words, the video’s content breaks the official narrative, and thus had to be censored by YouTube.
“From the very beginning of the pandemic, we’ve had clear policies against COVID-19 misinformation and are committed to continue providing timely and helpful information at this critical time,” YouTube further explained about the reasoning behind this censorship.
Listen below to The Health Ranger Report as Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, makes the case that this type of big tech censorship is an act of treason:
Even if you don’t agree with what people have to say, they should still be allowed to say it
As you are probably noticing, YouTube’s explanation for this act of censorship is about as flimsy as it gets. The data and figures presented by these two doctors are not necessarily false, but rather they offer a different perspective on the situation than the one being propagated by the likes of YouTube.
If YouTube was truly a bastion of free speech, it would have allowed the video to stand and let viewers be the judge as to the merit of its content. But instead, YouTube decided to simply pull the video and stop people from seeing it.
If the platform can do this to doctors offering their own perspective on the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, then it can also do this to doctors who talk about the merits of nutrition for keeping the body healthy and virus-free.
As you may recall, YouTube recently announced that it would be placing “fact check” labels next to videos that talk about the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki also flat-out admitted that any content contradicting World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for the pandemic will simply be removed from the platform entirely.
There is no room for alternate points of view, in other words. You either toe the line of what YouTube believes is true about the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), or you will be relieved of your ability to post videos there.
YouTube even went so far as to remove a video talking about how Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles has developed a new ultraviolet (UV) light treatment for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) that could become a powerful weapon in the fight against it.
“Apparently some tech yutz now knows more about medicine than a doctor,” wrote one Breitbart News commenter about the censorship situation at YouTube. “Guess they’re only heroes … [if] they parrot what’s politically convenient.”
