Analysis: “Coronavirus” psychosis is a cover up for industrial pollution


by Jim West

The COVID-19 respiratory disease pandemic was declared March 2020. (WHO)

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic is… caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 [COVID-19]. The outbreak started in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak to be… a pandemic on 11 March 2020.[Wiki 4/7/20]

As of 27 April 2020, more than 3.04 million cases have been reported across 185 countries and territories, resulting in more than 211,000 deaths.[Wiki 4/27/20]

In the United States, the most intense epicenters began in New York State in the same locations as the measles epicenters of the previous year. This suggests environmental factors.[JW 4/2019][JTA 4/2/20][LH 4/3/20]

  • Williamsburg (Brooklyn, NY)
  • Borough Park (Brooklyn, NY)
  • East Ramapo (Rockland County, NY)

No real science supports virus causation.[JW-NV][DC-Cv8]

Then what else could have caused the pandemic? Professor Bhakdi states that the common denominator is “horrid air pollution”.[SB 3/18/20]


Devra Davis, PhD has documented many air pollution coverups.[DD 12/12/02][DD 02] Davis was “the President Clinton appointee to the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board”.[Wiki-DD]

Air Pollution

A leading epidemiologist in Germany, Professor Sucharit Bhakdi, states that air pollution is the common denominator for the COVID-19 epicenters, that the medical and media approach is absurd and dangerous, that coronaviruses cohabit with humans and are a mild hazard.

COVID-19 symptoms are the same as air pollution symptoms: Fever, tiredness, dry cough.[WHO-CV]

The Media is pushing a Harvard study, which describes air pollution correlations with COVID-19. Essentially, the study is saying that vulnerables (to COVID-19) are generated by long-term air pollution.

A small increase in long-term exposure to PM2.5 leads to a large increase in COVID-19 death rate, with the magnitude of increase 20 times that observed for PM2.5 and all-cause mortality.[Wu 4/5/20]

A study, from Tel Aviv University, describes the NO2 air pollution component as a “most important contributor” to the COVID-19 pandemic.

[Nitrogen dioxide (NO2),] this pollutant may be one of the most important contributors to fatality caused by the COVID-19 virus in these regions and maybe across the whole world.[Ogen 20]

There are at least 10 more studies showing the link between air pollution and coronavirus disease.

Typical Epicenters

Wuhan (China), the initial epicenter, is one of the most polluted cities, worldwide. China produces and imports toxic fracking fuel[Reuters 6/21/18] and has extremely low environmental standards. Prior to the epidemic, there were street riots against killer air pollution and activists were persecuted.[CNN 7/10/19]

Plume (air pollution app) shows Wuhan on a typical day, which can be three to four times the pollution found on a bad day in New York City. Wuhan is almost always reported as Very High, Extreme, and Excessive.

Deaths Misrepresented

Thus the pollution thesis would expect Wuhan COVID-19 deaths to be high and continuous. Yet, China tells the world that they have no more COVID-19 deaths beyond its initial period, all due to their strict quarantine. Western news chooses to believe this lie in order to promote the success of quarantines. This lie was revealed by Steven Mosher, a China expert.[Fox 4/9/20]

Mosher states that Wuhan’s death incidence is ongoing at least 450 per 100K persons, 12x higher than badly polluted epicenters outside of China. This supports the air pollution thesis, because Wuhan’s death incidence is proportional to the high pollution levels at other epicenters.

Madrid (Spain) has the next highest death incidence. Spain imports its petroleum products from Qatar, major exporters of toxic fracking fuel for industry and power plants. Photo: El Pais

Plume often shows high NO2 (nitrogen dioxide) pollution for Madrid.

Milan (Italy) vies with Spain for most deaths outside of China, and is accused of under-reporting. Milan has been called, “Europe’s most polluted city.” Milan imports much of its petroleum products, fracked, from the US. See photo of Milan pollution. Long before the COVID-19 pandemic, traffic in Milan and Rome was routinely banned and people told to stay indoors because of intense air pollution.[BBC 12/28/15]

A common Plume report for Milan is “High” and “Very High”.

The NY/NJ/CT region and the Gulf region of New Orleans and Jefferson Parish, have the highest incidence of COVID-19 disease in the US. What do they have in common? They are within the two largest petrochemical industrial regions in the US.

Pollution data missing during high death occurrences

4/7/2020, in the morning, Plume reported “Excessive” and “Extreme” for New York City, with high and sustained NO2 levels. I predicted record COVID-19 deaths. Then later in the day, the media confirmed my prediction by reporting all-time record high COVID-19 deaths. That evening, I reviewed Plume again and found the air pollution historical data missing for 4/7/2020.

Absurdly, New York City was shown to have an Air Quality Index (AQI) of 3, due to the missing data, NO2, PM10, and O3.

The same problem began occurring for New Orleans air pollution during high death counts. Other cities (with less COVID-19 deaths) do not have this extreme missing data problem. There is a correlation between missing air pollution data and high COVID-19 death counts.

I also reviewed NYCDOH COVID-19 death reports for 4/7/2020, and found, “High death counts are due to delayed reporting.”

EPA/WHO: AQI corruption

Industry/government apparently does not want people recognizing pollution accurately. If they were fully aware, then property values would change drastically. Many would be required to pay people to take possession of properties. Examples: Real estate listing should by law, have an EMF rating attached to every property, which would then detail EMF radiation values from power lines, transformers, shielding ratings for building power cables, locations of antennae and radar, etc. Air pollution should be rated, and locations of earth plumes and air pollution sources should be described for every property, etc. Additionally, labor would become unpredictable. China solves this problem by requiring the population to be static, unless given permission. Western nations solve this problem with misinfo propaganda, such as the AQI.

AQI is corrupt

The AQI (Air Quality Index) gives a sense that air pollution in NYC is similar to Tucson, AZ, for example. This prevents populations accurately perceiving air pollution, thus preventing them from relocating and panicking and blaming environment for their illnesses.

The AQI does not represent the full effect of the sum of multiple poisons. It tends to represent the index of the highest single poison. This can be seen in a typical Plume report.

Solution: Focus on NO2 and PM2.5 — perhaps the most hazardous of the pollutants listed by EPA (and Plume). Try to determine whether particles such as PM10 are actually due to non-toxic dust or biological matter. Consider the possibility that Ozone (O3) with sunlight, is actually nature’s process of cleaning the atmosphere of pollutants. Note that NO2 disappears usually during the day with high O3 and sun UV disintegrating NO2. O3 is nevertheless, an indicator of industrial pollution.

Petrochemical industry regions in US

New York City and New Orleans are both adjacent and downwind from the the largest petrochemical regions in the Western Hemisphere.

New York City is downwind from a huge petrochemical region, and downwind from recently installed electric power plants that are fueled with toxic fracking gas.

Air pollution also arrives from earth spills, accumulated from centuries of unregulated industry. These spills are everywhere in the New York City area.

Usually, epidemics in the US begin in, and are heaviest in, New York City, e.g., the 1916 polio, 1918 Spanish flu, The Great Polio Epidemic, West Nile virus, H1N1 flu, measles, and now, COVID-19. The cover story for each epidemic is a virus. I was told by the highest environmental officials in the US that any scientist, journalist or politician who criticizes virus paradigms will lose his job, funding and publishing ability, “overnight”.

A challenge: “Yes there is a correlation with pollution, however, it is pollution that makes people vulnerable to the virus.”

My rebuttal: As stated, viruses are not proven entities. Virology fails to discount toxicological factors and falsely declares isolation of viruses. A mainstream virologist cannot survive a public debate.

The Toxic Trigger

Air pollution is the common denominator as a background poison, and to a lesser extent, so are pesticides, EMF, and water pollution. The big question is: What could be the unique trigger for this unique pandemic declared in March 2020?

Best guess: A severe increase in air pollution in the form of fracking petrochemical fuel. Fracking petrochemicals could have been changed — by new toxics being added at the refinery or by processing rules being relaxed for the cleaning of fracking petrochemicals, such as “natural” gas.

Precedent: Changes of protocol at the refineries in terms of toxic Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE), authorized by EPA/DEC, at 15% of gasoline in the Tri-State region (NY/NJ/CT), are the apparent cause of the prior pandemic, called “West Nile virus” in 1999.[West-WNV 00] Within the Tri-State region, epicenters and air pollution maps coincide for all three epidemics: West Nile virus epidemic of 1999, the measles epidemic of 2019, and the present COVID-19 epidemic of 2020.

Toxic earth gas vapors correlate with the record-high measles epidemics of 2019, and the present COVID-19 epidemics.

Escape from New York

August 2019, after 40 years loving the Big Apple, I left NYC due to research finding an alarming trend of rapidly increasing air pollution. I had just published my measles research, an environmental study of the record-high incidence of measles epidemics, which, in the US, was mostly in New York City.

This was a sad decision, but necessary for survival. Electric power plants were opening upwind, in upstate New York and New Jersey, in anticipation of the popularity of electric cars and all-electric buildings. These plants are fueled by toxic fracking “natural gas”. Upwind is Pennsylvania, the land of approximately 11,000 fracking sites. Upwind is New Jersey, a major petrochemical refinery zone. Piped through NYC gas stoves is toxic fracking gas. The earth of NYC is soaked with centuries of industrial vaporous spills.

Telling coincidences

The initial Coronavirus epicenters in New York State of 2020 (highest in US) coincide with the three measles epicenters of 2019 (highest in US). These are Borough Park and Williamsburg in Brooklyn county, and Ramapo in Rockland county.

These epicenters (measles and COVID-19) occurred over toxic earth plumes from EPA Superfund Sites. Upwind to all of these epicenters are old and newly installed electric power plants, fueled by toxic fracking gas.

The measles epidemics in 2019 were blamed on unvaccinated people by limiting their investigations to the unvaccinated. The unvaccinated were fined $1,500.

The Coronavirus epidemics of 2020 were blamed on the same people not self-isolating. Those not complying are fined $1,000.

Authoritative Support

Prof. Dr. med. Sucharit Bhakdi is an epidemiologist and microbiologist, the chairman of The Institute of Medical Microbiology and Hygiene at Mainz University for 22 years. He is one of Germany’s the most cited researchers. Bhakdi has “demystified” the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bhakdi heroically supports the air pollution thesis OVER the virus thesis.[SB 20]

He does, however, promote the concept of viruses, and thus creates a long, complicated and somewhat false argument in the style of Peter Duesberg, PhD.[Dues] Bhakdi must support virology because if he denied the virus, he would lose his career, publishing access, and paycheck, “overnight”, as I have been told is the general case, by environmental authorities. Peter Duesberg, PhD is famous for his critique of HIV causation for AIDS. Duesberg was persecuted and prosecuted, despite being a highly respected virologist and tenured professor.

Bhakdi describes Coronavirus as “low-risk”, rather than as dissidents such as myself do, which is, “an unproven entity”.

The no-virus argument is much simpler, much easier to remember and discuss. It merely puts the burden of proof on virologists, where it belongs. It puts the burden of proof properly on anyone who makes claims about viruses. The no-virus argument merely asks two questions which virologists cannot answer: 1) Where was virus isolation properly achieved? 2) Where was toxicological causation properly discounted?

Virology has no fundamental evidence. Thus virology is fake science, advertising.

Nevertheless, Bhakdi is bravely doing what he can within his profession’s political limitations to bring attention to air pollution and COVID-19 contradictions.

Bhakdi describes the COVID pandemic as “tragic”, a dramatized hyper-focus on Coronavirus, essentially a misdiagnosis of diseases that traditionally happen among the already severely ill, and often due to ongoing air pollution.

Some doubt the existence of the pandemic. I see a real pandemic. I believe there are real victims with unique respiratory symptoms, having studied mainstream descriptions and the reports of friends in New York who describe the plenitude of illnesses among their friends, relatives, themselves, and others.

Here is the introduction, transcribed from Bhakdi’s brief interview, “Corona virus COVID-19- hype and hysteria? Demystification of the nightmare!”, March 19, 2020.[ref]

Q: Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, you are an infectious disease specialist. You are one of the most cited medical disease specialists in Germany… What are Coronaviruses?

Bhakdi:  These viruses co-exist with humans and animals around the globe. The viruses are the cause of very common minor diseases of the respiratory tract… A new member is on stage spreading fear around the world.

Q: Why?

Bhakdi: The new COVID-19 originated in China and spread rapidly. It appeared to be accompanied by an unexpected high number of deaths. Alarming reports followed from Northern Italy that concurred with the Chinese experience. It must, however, be pointed out that the large majority of outbreaks in other parts of the world appeared to display lower mortality rates. 

Q: Why “appeared” to display mortality rates? 

Bhakdi: When patients concurrently have other illnesses, an infectious agent must not be held solely responsible for a lethal outcome. This happens for COVID-19, but such a conclusion is false and gives rise to the danger that other important factors are overlooked. Different mortality rates may well be due to different local situations. For example, what does northern Italy have in common with China? Answer: Horrific air pollution. The highest in the world. Northern Italy is the China of Europe… 

Q: The highest alert level has been declared and extreme preventative measures have been installed in the desperate attempt to slow the spread of this virus.
Bhakdi: Yes, and this is the incredible tragedy. Because all these measures are actually senseless…

Note: Bhakdi says that historically, coronaviruses “cohabit with humans” and they are not commonly known for serious effects. He says that a positive test result is “not the disease”.

Contrast that with Dr. BIRX, who, while representing the Federal Administration, stated that deaths and disease are diagnosed as COVID-19 largely by a mere association with a positive test result.[Birx]

Thus, even in the mainstream, virus-believing world, a “case” is not necessarily a disease, and any COVID-19 disease is not necessarily due to COVID-19.

Thus, the advertised pandemic is in part, a pandemic of testing. And the COVID-19 test is actually a test for microbiological responses to pollution harm.

5G not primary cause

Some believe that electromagnetic fields (EMF) from 5G are causing the pandemic.[AZH]

This is unlikely because 5G protocol was not substantially present in all the epicenters, and the 60GHz frequency, the purported most hazardous form of 5G, was not deployed.[TechB]

The only common denominator is air pollution. 5G is not consistently common.

See the 5G deployment map of Madrid during the COVID-19 pandemic. Madrid vies with Italy and Wuhan for the world’s highest incidence of COVID-19 death. Yet 5G was not substantially deployed. This map represents the network of only one of Madrid’s four telecom companies, the only one that had installed 5G as of 4/7/2020.

5G implementation is in blue.

The map shows that 5G accounts for less than 0.5 percent of WiFi installation in Madrid during the epidemic, and there is no information regarding the frequencies employed.

Electromagnetic smog, whether it arrives from 4G or 5G routers, or power EMF from cables and devices, can generate biological hypersensitivity to toxic chemicals, and thus would be able to cause many COVID-like symptoms such as respiratory symptoms and fever.[KZ 2015] However, the map demonstrates that electro-smog can only be a contributor to this pandemic, not a primary cause.

The self-quarantines and lockdowns could increase electro-smog, because people are expected to live their lives through social media, sitting near high-EMF computer monitors and Internet routers, increasing EMF stress.

The symptoms of COVID-19 disease indicate damaged lung membrane.[Sidell 3/31/20] That would more likely result from air pollution, which would directly contact those membranes. High frequency 5G would not reach lung membranes readily because those frequencies would be attenuated by skin and organs before reaching lung membranes.

Higher frequencies (presumed with 5G) are more readily absorbed by the skin, thereby attenuating EMF energy (though damaging the skin). 5G proponents assert that high 5G frequencies such as 60GHz, caused the pandemic by splitting oxygen molecules, rendering oxygen difficult for lungs to absorb. However, there is no evidence that 60GHz has been employed during the pandemic.


Ques 1: Why does Los Angeles far fewer COVID-19 deaths than NYC despite its huge population?

Ans 1: The regional fuel consists of only 20% fracking-derived fuel.

Ques 2: Why does Ukraine have few COVID-19 deaths despite its extensive fracking reserves?

Ans 2: Ukraine burns petrochemical fuel from Russia, which does not frack.

Ques 3: Why do journalists refer to fracking natural gas as “natural gas, a bridge to sustainable fuels”, as if fracking natural gas is the same as “clean natural gas”?[Forbes 9/2/18] The term “fracking natural gas” would be more accurate because 2/3rds of US natural gas is fracked.

Ans 3: Most journalists seem to be misinformed or corrupt, being in a disinfo echo chamber, politically controlled. The Environmental Working Group has described the difficulty obtaining information about fracking.[EWG 1/19/10]. Journalists blindly or robotically use the term “clean natural gas” when they are actually describing “fracking natural gas”. Even the EWG article discusses fracking without mentioning the toxicity of natural gas. The title of the article includes the term “toxic natural gas” but this refers to the fracking process, diesel-power, etc. Even traditional “natural gas” (non-fracked) is toxic, containing contaminants such as mercury.[Muad 1/23/17]

Ques 4: Why does the pandemic appear to be infectious? How did it start in Wuhan and appear to spread throughout the world?

Ans 4: Different epicenters have different environmental toxic scenarios and histories. Wuhan is one of the world’s most air-polluted areas, if not the most polluted. Earth pollution also is likely tremendous. A global increase of fracking fuel exhaust toxicity would present new forms of toxicity, and new forms of disease, i.e., a variant of existing respiratory disease already present in the epicenters. The epidemic would then appear first in the most historically poisoned areas such as Wuhan. Additionally, fracking protocols might not have changed everywhere at the same time.

Conspiracy theory

Fracking is the main trigger of the pandemic. This industry is being closed down. It has long been financially tenuous, with little profit margin, absolutely dependent on environmental exemptions from the government. Fracking is exempt from The Clean Water Act. Hopefully, it’s death knell is tolling, and perhaps the pandemic shutdowns are relevant to its demise.

Following on months of financial pressure on the fracking industry due to Arab and Russian price wars, the US Oil market was devastated on 4/21/2020, as US states are preparing to phase out of the lockdowns. This day is the worst since 1983. Oil suppliers must pay to have oil moved.

This conforms to my theory that the Medical sector, by declaring the COVID-19 shutdown…

1) Motivates polluting industries to clean up, yet without public blame, because,

2) The fake virus takes the blame.

3) US becomes like China, where pollution filter masks are already common. COVID allows pollution masks to be PC in the US, as they are perceived as virus masks.

4) COVID is a continuation of medical public training: Disease is not industrial. Disease is germs and defective genes.

5) COVID expands Medical power and infrastructure.

6) COVID is a militant distraction, blinding the population from environmental hazards, from the 5G and fracking fuel rollouts, now and forever.


“Cases” is misleading, because cases are not defined. A mere positive for an already sick person seems to be the rule.

“Deaths” is better, but also misleading because incidence is usually omitted. Example: NY Times “Morning Briefing” of 4/23/2020:

…the US outbreak… by far the world’s largest…

Incidence is brings understanding. This is deaths (or cases) per population, usually expressed as, for example, deaths/100k. Incidence reveals patterns that point to the epidemic toxic industrial effluent upwind. The Medical Media protects industry by avoiding environmental topics by way of fake germs and misleading counts.

The US may be “the largest”, but it is at least 14th in the world behind its own state epicenters and other nations, and at least 8th behind nations alone. See incidence table:

China’s air pollution is truly monstrous, as exemplified by three cities of many.
