OK, but I qualified it with that I never knew anyone who got VERY ill with COVID, as in hospitalized or died. Since the jab, I now know about a dozen unjabbed people who either died or were hospitalized. I did look it up, and loss of the sense of smell and taste it not uncommon with colds and flus in general. I bet people had that happen all the time but were simply not aware of it or not paying attention to it, but it was called out after COVID. When I got sick post-jab, it wasn't just a loss of taste/smell, but even purified water tasted like what a sewage treatment plant smells like.
Regardless, that goes against Jones' narrative that the earlier versions of COVID were worse, but that they got milder. There was something very mild out there the first year, but they faked the numbers. They eliminated flu and called everything COVD with bogus testing. There were no excess deaths in 2020.
You're certainly entitled to you BELIEF, but that's all it is:
A working theory.
I have my own too.
I happen to disagree with yours, but note it is predominantly anecdotal: YOU never heard of this, or YOU never heard of that.
No worries, because that's all either of us has to go on: What we have experienced.
I find Jones' plausible, because my anecdotes are at odds with yours.
I believe people were dying from the beginning (despite gross exagerrations, false positives, and all that). Why? Because the bioweapon was released to have that effect.
It just wasn't effective enough, so out comes the Delta. It only stands to reason that if Alpha variant killed reletively few, that you and I wouldn't know too many who suffered from it. But the Delta was much more infectious/effective, so naturally we know more people who were affected.
But it is what it is, and since it isn't religion, I don't really care if people have other competing theories (in fact, I almost prefer it in a way, since it guarantees that SOMEONE will hit the nail on the head).
