Corona, False Alarm?: Facts and Figures [9781645020578]

(2 reviews) Write a Review

Cut to the facts about coronavirus in Corona, False Alarm?, the runaway German bestseller.

In June 2020, Corona, False Alarm? exploded into the German market, selling 200,000 copies and 75,000 e-books in six weeks.

No other topic dominates our attention as much as coronavirus and COVID-19, the infectious disease it triggers. There's been a global deluge of contradictory opinions, fake news, and politically controlled information. Differing views on the dangers posed by the pandemic have led to deep division and confusion, within governments, society, and even among friends and family.

In Corona, False Alarm?, award-winning researchers Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi and Dr. Karina Reiss give clarity to these confusing and stressful times. They offer analysis of whether radical protective measures-including lockdown, social distancing, and mandatory masking-have been justified, and what the ramifications have been for society, the economy, and public health. Dr. Bhakdi and Dr. Reiss provide dates, facts, and background information, including:

  • How Covid-19 compares with previous coronaviruses and the flu virus
  • What infection numbers and the death rate really tell us
  • The challenges around lockdown: Were the protective measures justified?
  • Mandatory mask-wearing: Does the science support it?
  • Does the race for vaccine development make sense? What are the chances of success? Will the vaccine be safe? Will people accept it?

Corona, False Alarm? provides you with sound information and substantiated facts-and encourages you to form your own opinion on the corona crisis.

    False alarm indeed

    Posted by Lizzie on 22nd Jan 2021

    I read about this book some months ago. Dr Bhakdi must have been one of the first sceptical doctors/scientists I came across, since when there have of course been many more. I thought that by now I might find the book slightly dated, given how fast things have been moving, but I am so glad I bought it (and I never normally buy a new book these days) as it is well worth reading, giving you information and insight into what was going on right back at the beginning of all this. My husband is now reading it and we will pass it on to someone else after that. It is straightforward and easy to understand. Thank God for people such as these two authors who have spoken out against the lies that we are being pumped full of every day.

    Corona False Alarm

    Posted by Jennifer Page on 25th Dec 2020

    Written in plain language by 2 experts. This book lays out how the Corona Virus is being misrepresented as a pandemic. Read this and pass the information on. There is no pandemic. It is entirely a political ploy to destroy democracy. They give full references so those so inclined can check for themselves.
