Do Your “Own” CoViD19 Research?

A handful of observations to aid earnest CoViD conversations.

When faced with a need for additional information, centuries of sensible people have rallied to “do research.” But right in the midst of this century’s most deadly viral pandemic, a subtle new variation on this ethos has emerged: “do your own research.” Is that the same thing? And why the distinction?

We spoke to a bunch “do-your-own-research” advocates and found that a number of important CoViD-related observations had escaped their attention, but struck them as valuable when they were shared. After a bunch of these conversations, and after noticing a couple trends, we made this collection for people earnestly seeking clarity about CoViD19 and vaccines. We propose that the observations collected here reflect the preponderance of evidence — irrespective of any narrative.

When/if we err in this collection or fall behind new developments, please let us know. It takes a village to keep this stuff straight — and a bunch of honest goodwill. Let’s pull together.

Common CoViD19 questions & concerns that we’ve encountered:

Have COVID deaths been exaggerated (and misattributed)?

Topic of the day:
Vaccine cynics often postulate that officials, someone in county after county, state after state, and country after country is exaggerating 1) CoViD death counts and 2) the virulence of the SARS-CoV2 virus in order to advance a nefarious agenda. These conversations frequently come around to “excess mortality curves” (for good reason!), but that has a way of veering into some now-common misunderstandings. We hope this animated explainer might serve as an aid to help people get on the same page in those conversations. It’s worth watching to the end!

It’s not crazy that leaders pause to take CoViD19 seriously, since it arose suddenly and it’s killing their constituents on a substantial scale.
• CoViD19 was the leading cause of death among law enforcement officers in 2021.

• CoViD19 has been the leading cause of death in the US at several points in the pandemic, occasionally surpassing cancer and heart disease (pink line, below).

CoViD19 changed the mortality dynamics of many countries ~overnight.
KFF’s broader summary is here.

This interactive graph, below, tracks the extent to which unvaccinated Californians died disproportionately from CoViD19. The disparity has ranged from 3.2X to 12.9X over time.

Do CoViD19 vaccines protect against CoViD19 infection?
Isn’t CoVID19 essentially just like the flu?
COVID19 is mild for ~90% of patients, so are precautions against transmission just overbearing and foolish?
Does anti-vax rhetoric harm or impose on anyone?
What’s the difference between “research” and “your own research”?
Aren’t spike protein t-shirts and ornaments just virtue signalling?

The Vaccinated.US project was launched to elevate the ambient level of awareness, clarity, and gratitude for the scientists, leaders, and medical professionals who work earnestly to make our world safer. When you buy molecular art from the Spike Shop you improve the general ratio of vaccine reason to vaccine hostility (or, perhaps, you just join us in that quixotic notion). All proceeds go to science education and the development of new informatics tools to accelerate cancer research.

The “Heart of the Matter” molecular art series shows an on-axis view of the SARS CoV2 spike protein with 3 alpha helices projecting out toward the viewer. The name reflects the heart-like shape that the molecule presents in this orientation. New fangled printing technology allows us to print these molecular structures in exquisitely high resolution — it’s really worth seeing.
