Most counries have had at least one lockdown since the covid-19 affair started in early 2020. Many countries have had two and governments are already anticipating more. What this means is that the lockdown experiment has been repeated hundreds of times and all over the World, maybe 300, 400 times or even more. Given that the experiment has been repeated in numerous countries, the geography bias has certainly been avoided.

So, we have an unbiased experiment, repeated hundreds of times, during different times of the year, and with local country-specific variations. And yet the result is always the same: the lockdown has no result. However, contagion increases and therefore, more lockdowns are needed. The second “wave” of covid-19 is, as is being claimed, worse than the first. So why continue insisting with lockdowns? If they don’t bring the desired effect – except destroying the economy, in many cases irreversibly – why insist on a cure than doesn’t work? In Italy alone, 300.000 companies have closed in 2020. Millions of people have lost their jobs.

So, repeating the same experiment hundreds of times, and expecting different results each time is, according to A. Einstein, the definition of insanity. It also points to incurable cretinism.

The same may be said of facemasks. If the overwhelming majority of citizens wears a mask – who is writing has verified this personally in places like Milan, Madrid or Munich – where are the new cases originating? Why insist on facemasks if they don’t bring the desired reduction in contagion? Maybe we’re not talking of contagion at all.

The word “contagion” has a connotation of something dynamic, of something that propagates. But is this really contagion we are speaking of? The ratio of positive subjects to number of tests is around 10%. Out of 100.000 citizens that undergo testing, 10.000 will result positive to covid-19 (or positive to a few of its genes). This means that out of a global population of 7.6 billion, today there are around 760 million individuals that are already covid-19 positive. So, until we test everyone (only 90 million cases have been confirmed), the more we test the more positive individuals we will find. Is this contagion or are we simply counting those that are positive? The faster we count, the more frightening this thing can look. If testing speed increases, the outcome may look like a wave. We still need to find the remaining 760 – 90 = 670 million! The speed of this testing can make it look like many waves. In fact, if during one year 90 cases have been confirmed, it can take 4-5 years to identify the “missing” 670 million. So, prepapre for more lockdowns. Prepare for more insanity.

But insanity has also another dimension: of a population of 7.6 billion, there have been 1.865 million deaths (January 5-th, 2020). This is 0.025%. In other words, the chance of surviving the “pandemic” in 2020 was 99.975%. Insanely large.

Established originally in 2005 in the USA, Ontonix is a technology company headquartered in Como, Italy. The unusual technology and solutions developed by Ontonix focus on countering what most threatens safety, advanced products, critical infrastructures, or IT network security - the rapid growth of complexity. In 2007 the company received recognition by being selected as Gartner's Cool Vendor. What makes Ontonix different from all those companies and research centers who claim to manage complexity is that we have a complexity metric. This means that we MEASURE complexity. We detect anomalies in complex defense systems without using Machine Learning for one very good reason: our clients don’t have the luxury of multiple examples of failures necessary to teach software to recognize them. We identify anomalies without having seen them before. Sometimes, you must get it right the first and only time!
