It’s been more than three years since COVID hit, but we’re still learning more about how so-called experts and scientists deceived us with phony “studies.”
Retraction Watch, a website that keeps tabs on the retractions of articles in science journals, reports that 330 COVID-19-related articles have been retracted due to a lack of scientific truthfulness and ethical guidelines.
Gunnveig Grødeland, a senior researcher at the Institute of Immunology at the University of Oslo, says many of the authors violated ethical principles or used sample sizes that were too small – a mistake that any high school science student learns to avoid.
The Lancet claimed that hydroxychloroquine caused an increased risk of heart arrhythmia and even death in patients with COVID-19. The article was retracted, but only after the Norwegian government and the World Health Organization (WHO) used it as an excuse to end research into the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine.
You’ll recall that from the beginning of the pandemic, all of us were chided if we voiced any dissenting views and told we must “follow the science.”
These troubling findings of academic fraud only sadly reinforce what we have been saying for years: today in America almost all “science” is “political science.”
