Utah State quarantining 287 students after elevated COVID-19 levels found in wastewater

This is totally outrageous. It's fine to test wastewater, and another to use COVID-19 as an excuse to lockdown whatever zone they want. The disease just isn't that bad. There are probably things a lot more dangerous in most wastewater than COVID-19, but it has become a free pass to excess control.

Police Access to the COVID-19 Health Database Has Ended.

Earlier this month CCLA and partners filed legal challenges to stop the blanket disclosure of personal medical information to law enforcement by the Ontario Government. Canadian citizens have the right to privacy in regards to their personal medical information and, in light of the provincial government’s withdrawal of the unrestricted access to this information, we have withdrawn our suit, however, we continue to fight against the erosion of privacy.

We learned that the COVID testing results database was accessed 95,000 times by Ontario police services, and that 40% of that access was by Thunder Bay Police and Durham Regional Police Services. Thunder Bay Police Service in particular accessed the personal health information in the database over 14,800 times – a rate of access that is ten times higher than the provincial average – even though the area has reported only 100 positive cases since the outset of the pandemic. We are calling on police services to destroy the personal health data they have collected to date, and have reached out requesting information on who has access to this information and how it is being stored.​

So I've Been Wrong All Along - It's not simply germaphobia
It's Actually Coronaphobia

How tragic that Coronaphobia is turning our land of liberty into a Stasi-like state

"The brief conversation seems harmless enough. Setting out to do the weekly shop with your three children, you bump into Mr and Mrs Smith and their daughter from down the road.
Naturally you stop for a chat. It all seems so innocent — the sort of social interaction that makes for a happy and healthy community.
A few hours later, though, you receive a call from the local police station. You are told that a well-meaning neighbour spotted your seemingly harmless exchange and has reported you for breaking the new so-called ‘rule of six’ restrictions on socialising ..."

Is 'coronaphobia' more deadly than the coronavirus?

Last month, a study of 50 countries in the top medical journal Lancet confirmed most of this. COVID-19 mortality correlates more with obesity rates than lockdowns, while movement restrictions and border closures lowered cases without saving lives.
