The Amish didn't lockdown, social distance, mask, or take a vaccine. It was business as usual. Few died. I offered $2,500 for anyone who could name >5 Amish who died. No takers. Just excuses.
People who live in Amish communities: No vaccines, No masks. No deaths. Nobody could name 5 Amish who died from COVID in Lancaster, PA which is the largest Amish community in the US. Whoops! I offered $2,500 and all I got was excuses on why they couldn't give me a single name of anyone who died.
The traditional Amish do not vaccinate. And they are a tight knit community. So they are the perfect placebo cohort. We just compare the rate of death of the unvaccinated Amish with the rate of death of people in the same area.
I recently learned that it's likely that in the >50,000 person unvaccinated Amish community in Lancaster, PA there are less than a handful of people who died from COVID. Lancaster is the largest Amish community in the US.
If nobody in the world can name more than 5 Amish unvaxxed people who died in Lancaster, PA, it means the entire pandemic response (lockdowns, business closures, school closures, church closures, testing, masking, social distancing, mandates, not testing people for immunity before vaccination, and vaccination) was completely unnecessary and counterproductive. Whoops!
