Bombshell: Extensive Corona data manipulation revealed in Austria

An extensive evaluation of data suggests a systematic exaggeration of the number of people affected by Covid-19. The incidence values ​​used to justify the lockdowns could therefore have been fictitious and a complaint to this effect was filed against the Austrian government.

    Steffen Löhnitz presented various figures at an explosive press conference on Friday. He had saved the daily figures for cases in his own database. According to his analysis, these values ​​do not agree with the final published results by the government. He is certain that the figures have been massively manipulated to inflate the actual extent of the alleged pandemic. The federal government was therefore charged with gross misconduct.

    Graduate engineer Löhnitz dropped the political bombshell at a press conference on Ballhausplatz. The data specialist presented meticulously compiled figures and various graphics. Originally from Saxony, Germany with his adopted home as Vorarlberg, Austria, he did not mince words. Löhnitz distributed a 40-page brochure called “The manipulation of Corona numbers in Austria using the example of the state of Vorarlberg” (which is also available online). This was “explained, documented and proven for the period from October 25, 2021 to December 23, 2021”.

    Löhnitz collected the daily updated numbers

    For this purpose, Löhnitz himself saved and evaluated the daily figures from Vorarlberg, but also from other federal states. Vorarlberg is the westernmost state of Austria. It has the second-smallest geographical area after Vienna and, although it has the second-smallest population, it also has the second-highest population density.

    A discrepancy between the figures of the Epidemiological Reporting System (EMS) of AGES and the so-called COVID-19 Dashboard became clear. If one converts the values ​​into a corresponding curve, both curves which should actually run parallel, differ greatly from each other. In some cases, the deviation is up to 60 percent. Care was however taken to ensure that everything always adds up in the end.

    The Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety (AGES) is responsible for public health, medical and drug safety and consumer protection.

    The active cases were recorded incorrectly

    Since it is difficult to falsify the deaths – and Löhnitz emphasized several times that the number of deaths was extremely low – according to his analysis, the manipulation works primarily by incorrectly recording active cases. The clear distinction was never actually made between really sick people and those who were only suspected of being sick, which is actually required by the Epidemics Act.

    In this way, the incidence values ​​have been multiplied so that the lockdowns could be pushed through. For example, the real number in December 2021 would not have as high as 1350 but only around 270 – and that is quite a considerable difference. Löhnitz is clear about the purpose of this manipulation: “On the subject of Corona, people lie and the population is deceived.”

    The federal government is being charged

    Together with his lawyer Manuel Müllner, Löhnitz filed a complaint against various members of the federal government and generally against the responsible authority and officials. According to Müllner, there is a suspicion of crimes such as coersion, fraud and abuse of office.

    After the press conference, Lohnitz personally brought his information brochure to the President’s office. There was also a letter to Federal President Alexander van der Bellen, in which he asked him to dismiss the federal government immediately because of the revelations. In addition, all Corona measures, including the obligation to vaccinate, should be lifted immediately.

    The bombshell coincides with mandatory shots

    On Thursday, Austria’s parliament voted to make Covid-19 vaccinations mandatory for adults from February, becoming the first European country to do so. All parties, except one, supported the measure with 137 votes in favour and 33 votes against it.

    As FWM reported earlier, the unjabbed will be facing stiff fines of up to 3600 euros from March.

    The ÖVP, currently the largest party in the National Council, with 71 of the 183 seats, is in the process of disintegrating. After three senior members left the party, another key ÖVP politician is now opposing his party’s planned compulsory vaccination. And the coalition party, the Greens are also feeling the squeeze. Over 21 600 Green Party sympathizers are also opposed to the compulsory jab measures and some members are threatening to leave.

    But the Socialist Party of Austria (SPO), the country’s other major party, is nevertheless still calling for the unvaccinated to lose their jobs as well as their entitlement to unemployment benefits and social assistance in Vienna.

    Many have criticized the decrees of the President of the Medical Association, Thomas Szekeres, who told doctors that they should not advise against taking the shots. “A woman from our district contacted me to say that 3 doctors have already told her that they are not allowed to issue a vaccination exemption because they fear for their license,” said mayor Adi Hinterhoelzl of Eidenberg in Upper Austria.

    “The last wave was called the ‘wave of the unvaccinated’ by politicians, and since then the unvaccinated have been locked up,” he added. But when the Omicron wave raged in the ski areas of Tyrol and Salzburg, those who had not been jabbed had remained healthy. One could therefore “without a doubt speak of the ‘wave of boosted skiers'”, he explained.

    FPÖ leader Herbert Kickl during Thursday’s charged parliamentary debate, described it as “paving the way to totalitarianism in Austria”.

    The regional daily Salzburger Nachrichten, reported that its government wants to “recruit retired police officers for Covid controls”.
