Scientists in Brazil have found that the countries most affected by the coronavirus spread are the ones who continued to allow unrestricted travel across their borders, prompting further arguments that the most effective method of preventing the spread is tighter frontier controls.

The research, carried out by the Federal University of Bahia in Salvador, suggests that screening and quarantining those coming into countries from outside could have been “a cheap solution for humanity”.

The researchers based their analysis on records of 7,834 airports, using online flight databases documenting 67,600 transport routes in 65 countries.

The scientists factored in a number of forces, including climate, socioeconomic factors, as well economic and air transport, in an attempt to ascertain how the size of outbreaks was affected in 65 countries which had more than 100 cases.

The overwhelming factor was found to be air travel, leading to a conclusion that it is “the main explanation for the growth rate of COVID-19.”

The study notes that “The 2019 – 2020 world spread of COVID-19 highlights that improvements and testing of board control measures (i.e. screening associated with fast testing and quarantine of infected travellers) might be a cheap solution for humanity in comparison to health systems breakdowns and unprecedented global economic crises that the spread of infectious disease can cause.”

The data tallies with the fact that the US and the UK, which have the first and third highest air travel globally, have also suffered the most COVID-19 deaths with 74,600 and 30,615, respectively so far.

The US did not close its airports until late March, while Britain’s borders have remained completely open with little to no testing or quarantining of incoming travellers happening at all.

On the other hand, nations like Austria, Denmark and New Zealand closed their borders within days of their first confirmed cases, and have experienced much fewer deaths.

Austria in particular has enacted tight border controls, refusing entry to anyone without a medical certificate confirming they had tested negative for the virus, and placing a mandatory 14 day quarantine on those who do not have them. The country has suffered just 68 deaths per million of its population, with only 606 overall.

Denmark closed its borders to all non-citizens in mid March, only excluding those with ‘credible purpose’ such as non-citizen Danish residents. The Scandinavian nation has recorded just 503 deaths.

The UK, on the other hand has allowed some 18 million people to enter from outside the country with hardly any of them undergoing health screenings or being put into quarantine.

Labour MP Stephen Doughty noted that “The fact that many of these people then likely arrived and travelled onwards across the UK with little or no adherence to social distancing, and with no checks or protections at the border is deeply disturbing.”

The UK has seen 100,000 people arriving from foreign countries at UK airports every single week, all with virtually no health checks whatsoever.

Video: Rand Paul Promises To ‘Find The Paper Trail’ For Lab Leak COVID Origin

“This is the biggest coverup in the history of science”

Senator Rand Paul vowed this week to continue to expose the origins of the COVID pandemic and uncover a paper trail that he is positive will lead back to the Wuhan lab research funded by Anthony Fauci and the National Institutes of Health.

“The entire pandemic, if it came from a lab, the fact that he approved the research and funded the lab would draw culpability to himself.” Paul said of Fauci during an appearance on Fox Business.

“Culpability to all of these people who made the unwise decision to send money to China to do dangerous research. That’s why they steadfastly resist this,” the Senator added referring to his efforts in the Senate.

Paul continued, “If you look at the early e-mails when they first discovered the sequence of this virus, January 31 of 2020, they are quite frightened. There are harried e-mails going back and forth until 2:30 in the morning.”

“All of the initial scientists are saying to him, holy cow. We have looked at the sequence and it looks like it has been manipulated in the lab. In fact, it has a cleavage site. The way the virus gets into the cell, that we do not see in nature, typically, and that Chinese last year ask us money to do that research,” Paul further explained.

“All kinds of alarms and bells went off for a day or two,” the Senator added.

“And then we have another couple of e-mails where Dr. Collins and Dr. Fauci are talking about how they are science, and this would be really damaging to science and the NIH, and all the taxpayer money we get and also to themselves personally,” Paul further stated, asserting “So they began a cover-up.”

“I think it is probably the biggest in the history of science and we will get to the bottom of this. I promise you, there will be a paper trail,” Paul urged.

“Should we win in November, I will use every bit of subpoena power to get every bit of data. We will bring all of the scientists under oath and we will get to the bottom of this,” Paul vowed.

Watch:

Paul recently slammed Fauci for taking the default position of trying to “cover up” his activities, including potentially encouraging social media companies to censor medical information.

The Senator has warned the NIH that it should not attempt to destroy any documents relating to or in the possession of Anthony Fauci as he retires.

Paul has called for restricting the exporting of DNA technology to China in the same way nuclear technology to the Communist regime is restricted, and has revealed in his Senate hearings that there is a committee that is supposed to oversee experimentation with potentially lethal viruses, but that it is above the oversight of Congress.

    Despite Biden Declaring Pandemic “Over,” White House Won’t Relinquish Emergency Powers

    Administration walks back 60 Minutes remark.

    Despite Joe Biden declaring that “the pandemic is over,” the White House stepped in to clarify that this didn’t mean public emergency health powers were being relinquished.

    Biden made the remarks during an appearance on 60 Minutes on Sunday.

    “We still have a problem with Covid. We’re still doing a lot of work on it. It’s — but the pandemic is over,” he said.

    Not for the first time, Biden’s statement was seemingly unplanned, and the White House rushed in to do damage control.

    To no one’s surprise, the administration is refusing to give up powers it handed itself by imposing a Public Health Emergency, which will not be lifted.

    “An administration official told CNN that the President’s comments do not mark a change in policy toward the administration’s handling of the virus, and there are no plans to lift the Public Health Emergency, which has been in place since January 2020 and is currently extended through October 13,” reports CNN.

    In other words, technocratic control freaks will likely renew the powers for winter, during which a rough flu season due to lowered natural immunity and the return of another COVID variant will grease the skids for the latest round of the “100 per cent safe and effective” vaccine.

    Biden’s remarks on 60 Minutes “caught some in the administration by surprise,” according to CNN, a regular occurrence whenever Biden veers slightly off script.

    Another comment he made during the interview, that the United States would send troops to defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion, also had to be clarified.

    A White House official later said that the policy on Taiwan had not changed.

    Biden Declares COVID Pandemic is “Over”

    Senator calls for “an end to all vaccine mandates.”

    During an appearance on CBS News’ 60 Minutes last night, President Joe Biden declared the COVID-19 pandemic to be “over,” right in time for the mid-terms.

    “We still have a problem with Covid. We’re still doing a lot of work on it. It’s — but the pandemic is over,” said Biden.

    Immediately after Biden’s remarks, Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie insisted that the administration should now relinquish all the emergency powers it has grabbed by hyping the threat of the virus.

    “If ‘the pandemic is over’ as Biden says, then all of the President’s emergency powers predicated on a pandemic, all COVID vax mandates, the emergency powers of every governor, Emergency Use Authorizations, and the PREP act should all be voided tomorrow,” said Massie.

    Senator Ron Johnson also called for “an end to all vaccine mandates.”

    The script appears to have flipped, with the pandemic police state being replaced by permanent war, as Biden pledged to send U.S. troops to defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion.

    Some people whose entire identity seems to be wedded to pandemic paranoia desperately countered Biden’s assertion, with #COVIDIsNotOver trending on Twitter.

    While the Biden administration may temporarily declare COVID to be over for the mid-terms, don’t rule out them ramping up the hysteria into December and January as the flu season takes hold.
