Fact Check: Trump Claims Coronavirus Fatality Rate in U.S. ‘Among Lowest in the Developed World’

by Edwin Mora, Breitbart Europe

CLAIM: U.S. President Donald Trump alleged this week the coronavirus case fatality rate (CFR) in the United States “is among the lowest, if not the lowest, in the developed world.”

VERDICT: Partially True. On Thursday evening, case fatality rate data provided by Johns Hopkins University showed there are several countries deemed developed by international bodies like the United Nations— in Europe and beyond — with a much lower CFR than the United States’ 4.4 percent.

Iceland appears to have the lowest case fatality rate in Europe at 0.5 percent. Several other European countries are in the 1-3 percent range.

However, the United States does have a lower case fatality rate when compared to some of the more prominent developed countries, primarily located in Europe: Belgium (15.7), United Kingdom (15.4), France (14.5), Italy (14.4), Netherlands (12.1), Spain (11.3), Canada (8.1), Sweden (7.4), Ireland (6.8), Slovenia (6.4) Switzerland (6.1), Greece (5.4) Japan (4.9), Germany (4.6,) Denmark (4.6), and Finland (4.5), among others … Continue reading >>>

ARTHUR FOXAKE comments:

And the United States of America is so great that virtually no one died from the regular flu this year. It’s not only USA, in the UK nobody has died from cancer, heart disease, food poisoning, liver failure, kidney failure , old age or extreme cases of athlete’s foot since March because starting from when lockdown was announced, EVERYBODY has died of COVID 19. And due to the government changing the way we record death statistics, some have died twice or even three times.

It’s not surprising that the UK, with one of the best heath services in the world, ranks so high. We are the only country that pays for COVID deaths. Hospitals are paid on a per case basis and receive a payment for every death they handle. But the civil servants who hold the purse strings decided it was so important to maintain the level of fear and panic about the Chinese Coronavirus that they decided to pay a premium for every death written up as COVID 19 ‘related’. The healthcare workers I have talked to said the “cause of death” stats are all BS. The scamdemic continues …

Covid 19: Statistics, Lies and the Corruption Of Science.As the COVID — 19 pandemic continues to dominate the news and defy the efforts of researchers to understand its many mysteries, including its origins and why it affects people who contract the virus in wildly different ways, one thing we have learned for certain so far is the extent to which the Pharmaceuticals manufacturers cartel (colloquially Big Pharma,) exercise a pernicious influence over medical research and healthcare.

COVID19 PCR Tests are Scientifically MeaninglessPoliticians and “experts” scream and shout about testing and isolation being the way to halt the COVID 19 pandemic to a halt, but everything else they hsve told us about the disease has been absolute bollocks, why should this be any different?
Well surprise, surprise, it isn’t any different. The idea that testing everybody ten times a day (OK I might be exaggerating for effect,) will do any good is just another diversionary tactic …

Coronavirus Contains “HIV Insertions”: Claim Stokes Fears Over Genetically Modified BioweaponFor the past two weeks mainstream media reporting of the epidemic of a new strain of coronavirus in China has been getting more and more hysterical. However, reports have pushed back against one “conspiracy theory” about the origins of the virus that has now infected as many as 70,000+ people in the central China city of Wuhan alone (depending on whom you believe).

Corona Virus: Should We Worry
The official data coming out of China and from other sources including the World Health Organisation (WHO) on the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus continues to suggest an exponential growth rate. With more and more infectious disease experts are now openly calling the virus a full-blown global pandemic, many people are asking should we in the west be worried and how bad might things get?

Coronavirus Contains “HIV Insertions”: Claim Stokes Fears Over Genetically Modified Bioweapon
The theory that China obtained the coronavirus via a Canadian research program, and started molding it into a bioweapon at the Institute of Virology in Wuhan before it somehow escaped could be an attempt by the establishment (the Davosocracy,) to spread fear and panic as they see resurgent nationalism across the developed world and growing scepticism about

Lockdown Regime Responsible For Thousands Of Deaths

The Lockdown which, based on scientific advice that was always suspect but is now known to have been profoundly flawed, was announced by  the UK government on March 23rd and passed into Law on March 25th, was widely predicted by people sceptical of they type of science based on output from mathematical models rather than empirical evidence,  appears to have led to the premature deaths of tens of thousands of people in the UK according to independent research.

It was always obvious that such an outcome was inevitable as Medical practices were forced to offer a very much reduced service, hospital appointments were can celled wholesale and people with very serious health problems were denied the support they needed.

We discussed all these consequences of following the advice of a self aggrandizing attention seeker months ago and you will find links to our posts on te various COVID – 19 related topics in the scrolling table at the end of this article, but to avoid looking as if we want to give the impression that we were the only ones who knew what was going on, here’s what ITT reported on the subject:  LOKIN-20 The Lockdown Regime Causes Increasing Health Concerns That post like some of ours discusses the likelihood that the Lockdown would cause significant excess mortality among people who were not infected with the Wuhan coronavirus.

The release of the latest report on non COVID 19 related deaths from the Office of National Statistics proves beyond doubt that the sceptics, those who doubted the word of government scientific advisers were right to do so, but what is truly astonishing is the scale of those deaths. Remember, the figures are not from some sensationalist tabloid newspaper but the UK Governments official statistics agency,

The ONS report reveals that between March 7th and May 1st (ONS Week 11 – 18 of year 2020) there were 46,380 excess death, over and above the statistical 5 year average, registered in England and Wales. Figures for Scotland and Northern Ireland are not included.

Of the 46,380 excess deaths 12,900 (27.8% of additional excess deaths) were not attributable to COVID 19. This suggests that 33,480 (72.2% of additional excess deaths) were attributable to COVID 19.

However, as we reported in Coronavirus: Statistics and Lies it is by no means clear how many of those deaths were as a direct or even indirect result of COVID 19 and in how many cases the deceased had merely been in contact with the virus but not affected by it. The UK Government’s administrative wing (the civil service) has dismantled the robust, almost foolproof method of recording deaths and created a system specifically for registering COVID 19 deaths which is so vague it even allows for a single death to be recorded several times, and is wide open to error and misinterpretation.

It is worth noting that senior civil servants have, since 2016, been determined to prevent the UK leaving the European Union (Brexit,) and have been involved in several plots to overturn the democratic vote.The pandemic presented them with a golden opportunity for mischief. We will of course never know what machinations have been going on under cover of the pandemic as politicians, corportate bosses, bureaucrats and meddlesome billionaires have sought to advance their own narrow interests.

All developed nations have their registration processes and data collection systems, tested over time and unually totally trustworthy but the situation in the UK resembled that in Italy where an unpopular government imposed by the EU bureaucracy after the elected government collapsed, used the pandemic to spread fear and panic and divert attention from internal political problems. The Italian government imposed their lockdown on March 9th. On March 20th, as assumed COVID 19 deaths piled up, Italy’s National Institute of Health (ISS) issued a report into the characteristics common to those dying from the disease.

Citing this report, which found no clear evidence that COVID 19 was the cause of death in 88% of deaths attributed to the virus, the chief scientific adviser to Italy’s health department, Professor Walter Ricciardi, said:

“The way in which we code deaths in our country is very generous in the sense that all the people who die in hospitals with the coronavirus are deemed to be dying of the coronavirus……On re-evaluation by the National Institute of Health, only 12 per cent of death certificates have shown a direct causality from coronavirus.”

No such admission has been made by the UK government as yet, but it is reasonable to assume similar misrepresentations of the facts have been used here, and probably in the USA and other countries reporting high kill rates for COVID – 19. The revised figure from Italy puts the kill rate for COVID – 19 in line with that reported by Germany where doctors flatly refused to register cause of derath as COVID – 19 Coronavirus, unless the deceased died prinicpally from the effects of Wuhan Coronavirus infection.

Sir Patrick Vallance, UK Chief Scientific Officer

All this should be considered in the light of the statement made by Professor Ricciardi’s UK counterpart. Speaking on April 16th the UK’s Chief Scientific Officer, Sir Patrick Vallance (above), said:

“It is worth remembering again that the ONS rates are people who’ve got COVID on their death certificates. It doesn’t mean they were necessarily infected because many of them haven’t been tested. So we just need to understand the difference.”

The UK, like Italy, instructed the its national statistics agency (ONS) to record any and all mentions of COVID 19 on the death certificate (MCCD) as COVID 19 mortality. Furthermore, the ONS were ordered to accept suggested COVID 19 mortality figures from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) even if COVID 19 was not mentioned on the MCCD.

This has left the collection and reporting of COVID 19 mortality in both Gr,eat Britain and Italy, the two nations with the highest death numbers in Europe in total disarray. Certainly the official reporting of the pandemic by the taxpayer funded BBC (often referred to as the government propaganda deprtment reporting of those statistics, which has overwhelmingly been in support of the lockdown regime, is as close to meaningless as it is possible to get without simply making up the numbers.

Between March 7th and May 1st figures from the Care Quality Comission (CQC) played no part in the ONS mortality analysis. The CQC didn’t start submitting their data to the ONS until April 29th. What is reported here serves to highlight how absurd the COVID 19 mortality statistics have become. And yet the future of our nations and our lives is being shaped by this absurdity.

‘The Modelers’ Thought Of Everything Except Reality

This is a post from a U.S. economic research website, criticizing the ludicrously over – the – top actions taken to limit the effects of the COVID – 19 coronavirus pandemic. The responses were of course based on the warnings of “scientists” who rather than using empirical evidence relied on output from mathematical models in order to predict how the pandemic would unfold.

Needless to say the predictions were hopelessly wrong …

Via The American Institute for Economic Research,

As a site focused on economics, AIER would rather have stayed away from commentary on diseases and their mitigation. In normal times, we would have. 

The archives of AIER dating back to 1933 show that we had no comments on the polio epidemic (1948-1951), the Asian Flu (1957-59), the Hong Kong flu (1968-69), the Avian bird flu (2006), or the Swine flu pandemic of 2009, which was a strain most like 1918 and therefore, one might suppose, would have caused panic but did not.

We had nothing to say because disease mitigation is a job for medical professionals, not economists and certainly not politicians.

The problem is that this time, the disease mitigators (some of them, the ones in power and with the ear of politicians) didn’t stay out of economics. Indeed, their plans for mitigation trampled all over commerce, life, and the freedoms that are necessary to make it function. For a few months in 2020, the presumptuous model-building disease mitigators became central planners, overriding the wisdom of not only medical professionals but also economists, philosophers, political scientists, historians, and everyone else including legislatures and voters.

Our first piece on the topic ran January 27. The focus was on the quarantine power and the argument was simple: because people are not ridiculous and know how to deal with disease in consultation with medical professionals, this state power should not be deployed. At the time, people said we were being alarmist even for saying this. Nothing like this could ever happen in the U.S. because we have a Constitution and courts and a tradition of trusting the people …  Continue reading >>>

The way ‘Covid deaths’ are being counted is a national scandal

As we have reported previously the Government’s testing program for COVID 19 is bollocks because no matter how many tests per day are done or not done, the fucking tests don’t work …

Article by Richard Willet for The Spectator
via David Icke

As a pathologist, I’m used to people thinking that my job mainly involves dealing with death. But nothing could be further from the truth. That is why I and many of my colleagues are so dismayed by changes introduced during the coronavirus epidemic which mean that pathology has not been able to play the role that it should have in helping to understand this new disease.

The word ‘pathology’ tends to conjure up images of body bags, mortuaries and murder investigations. ‘Ho ho,’ people say, ‘your patients can’t answer back.’ They imagine days spent trudging across fields to reach murder scenes, Silent Witness-style, and nights sifting through arcane evidence to catch the perpetrators. And a rare type of pathologist — the forensic pathologist — does indeed do that.

Most pathologists, though, spend the majority of their careers looking after the living. After all, pathology is the study of disease, and the whole point of knowing about diseases is to inform our approaches to preventing and treating them.

There are four main types of pathologist. Microbiologists specialise in the study of infectious diseases — a subtype is the virologist, in particular demand at the moment. Chemical pathologists are experts in the liquid parts of the blood; they analyse the endless samples that pour into path labs day and night, looking for changes in chemicals and hormones that indicate disease. Haematologists are experts in diseases of the blood cells, the red cells and white cells that can cause problems such as anaemia or leukaemia.

And then there is my own speciality of histopathology, or cellular pathology. We are experts in analysing changes in the fabric of our bodies that result from disease. Many diseases affect our tissues in ways that can be seen down the microscope, allowing them to be accurately diagnosed and monitored, particularly tumours and inflammations. Every time a biopsy or surgical sample is taken, it comes to the histopathology lab to be examined. Histopathology is often regarded as a ‘gold standard’ for diagnosis of diseases that change tissue structure. A clinical examination or X-ray may suggest that a tumour or fibrosis of the lung, say, is present, but you need to examine a tissue sample microscopically to be sure that it’s really there, what type it is, and how advanced. Tissue can also be examined genetically to look for the presence of infectious agents or cellular receptors that may determine how deadly it is.

Determining the true fatality rate of Covid-19 vital, says another scientist with an infallible mathematical model

The objective of mathematical models of an epidemic is to predict the Infection Fatality Rate or IFR. Two extreme scenarios (and everything in between) fit the available data which as shown above is so incomplete as to be useless. In the one used by the Imperial College modellers, the fatality rate is in the benchmark of 1pc which would imply that the epidemic took off towards the end of February in the UK, and less than 10pc of the population had been exposed by time of lockdown.

In the other, the fatality rate could be as low as 0.01pc; this would require the virus to have been introduced about a month earlier and for over 50pc of individuals to be exposed by March 23.

These figures for the number of people exposed to the virius but not affected by it can only ever be pure guesswork of course. Most modellers have “fitted” their model to the , in plain English again, adjusted the algorithms to produce the answer whoever is funding the research requires from thevery limited data available on cases and deaths as reported. If fact one model used to formulate advice given to the UK government was, we are given to understan, from the Diamond Princess Cruise Liner. This corresponds to running a model of a national community based on a large number of people confined within a limited space which guarantees thel SIR model will produce an artificially high  a high fatality rate – or present governments with the worst case scenario on which to formulate policies.

But how plausible is a fatality rate of 1pc? First we must remind ourselves

The author is a “a professor of theoretical epidemiology”, in plain English another academic highly qualified in the science of making things up. How much money could we save as a nation if we just stoppeed funding these parasites and the universities that employ them. So what we are prsented with is another theoretical “scientist” who likes playing around with computers and statistics despite being spectacularly unqualified to do so. More garbage in in – garbage out conclusions.

A notable feature of this crisis has been the tendency of authority to obscure the figures to suit their purposes, both here and in the US. If the university brainwashed half – wits in government want to calculatethe likely death rate from COVID – 19 and the total all cause deasths related to the pandeimic, let them find and disclose the number of people who have died as a result of the first closure of the NHS in its history. It is likely to show that more have died of the response to the “crisis” or from causes not related to COVID – 19 after having been expose to this similar to seasonal ‘flu but not as bad Coronavirus variant.

Then we should take Novartis’s upper estimate for annual flu deaths of 22,000 and then add the above figure to that, and subtract that total from the total “excess deaths” figure to find the casualty figure for which the whole country of sixty seven million has been assaulted by idiots fooled by criminals. in the UK, the virus had two or three months to spread in the population before lockdown. And yet it managed to kill only 238 healthy people under 60 in England. For context 68,000 people died in 2018 anyway. That does not suggest that this is a particularly deadly disease for healthy people up to 60, and perhaps even for healthy people beyond that age.

German Pulomonary Disease Specialist Says COVID – 19 Is An Insane Panic

One of Germanys leading specialists on respiratory diseases, Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg – who has decades of experience with viruses that attack the lungs, epidemics and their consequences has been widely ridiculed by “scientists” whose income is derived from governments and United Nations agencies and who theirfore must comply with the official narrative or see their careers trashed and face the unthinkable prospect of having to get jobs and Get Some Proper Work Done, is standing by his opinion on the Corona ‘Crisis’. Dr. Wodarg has described the so – called pandemic as “A malignant crisis that is entirely driven by misinformation and panic.

On the one hand he says, the only way of identifying the infection is a ‘Corona test’ that detects all coronaviruses that have been circulating among the population for many years. Performed in ever-increasing numbers these by definition result in ever-increasing numbers of positive tests – alarmingly labeled ‘COVID – 19 cases’ although the doctor and other equally well qualified people in the world of medical research have pointed out, having the antibodies associated with coronavirus strains does not mean one has the disease.

He describes the currrent pandemic as a flu wave that in the medical world and the media only consists of ‘Corona’ and where all other respiratory viruses that also participate suddenly disappear from the picture. (Some of the language may seem a bit quirk in this piece, my regular German translator is not available and I’m relying on a translation by deepl a free translation service not as well known but generally considered more natural in its translations than rivals.

Analysis by independent statisticians worldwide has shown the total number of coronavirus (all strains) is remarkably similar to the average number of flu victims for other recent years. Others have noted that as a ‘disease’ COVID-19 that has no specific symptoms to differentiate it from SARS, MERS, seasonal ‘flu or for that matter the milder version of the disease caused by coronavirus variants, the common cold, but the effect of this particular strain has been exacerbated by fear and panic which has been generated apparently deliberately by scare stories which originate in governmental and globalist organisations and have been gleefully reported in an exaggerated and sensationalised way by mainstream media. It is panic that has caused problems for hospitals and healthcare providers in various parts of the world, not because of the disease itself, which has a kill rate lower than that of seasonal ‘flu, but because of horror stories about its effects on victims but because of other diverse circumstances, including population structure, health, quality and capacity vs. care and the often fatal (ICU/breathing) treatment.

Wodarg tries to reassure people concerned about ‘the virus’, reminding us that most people exposed to the virus develop no symptoms at all and the majority of those who test positive show only mild symptoms. The danger is no greater than in any other flu season is the view of many internationally leading scientists analyzing actual figures from all over the world. Unfortunately most opinions opinions from similarly independent sources are being suppressed by the censorship technologies operated by Google and other Big Tech corporations that are use by governments to gather information on internet users.

Wodarg’s message is particulary disturbing when you wonder how the whole world can be fooled by such a clearly fact-free ‘panic’, into allowing itself to be led to the curtailment of the most fundamental freedoms. It is even more disturbing to those of us who are aware that George Orwell wrote, in his novel 1984, of such total control of information and the way it is used in a dystopian world by authoritarian regimes to not only suppress dissent but to make dissent impossible. A world that thinks it has to prepare itself for a ‘new normal’, in which large public gatherings such as sports and entertainment events, parties, beach holidays and churchgoing are forbidden, all our movements are tracked and records are kept of everyone we have contact with, incredibly dangerous and extremely undesirable ’solutions’ such as ‘mass vaccination’, ‘social distancing’, and other ‘surveillance’ are seen as essential to control the pandemic and avert new outbreaks.

Wodarg warns of a new wave of cleverly induced panic and thousands of unnecessary deaths as the ‘COVID-19’ (Hydroxy) Chloroquine treatments now being prepared for climical trials by the WHO, some of which will  be carried out in Africa. I’ve always said that “scientist” is in many cases a synonym for “idiot” so it is no surprise that these clowns have not considered that 10-20% of the male population of former Malaria areas have ‘favism’, Glucose-6-phosphate-dehydrogenase deficiency (G6PD). For this large group of people, treatment with (Hydroxy) Chloroquine is often fatal.

Dr Wolfgang Wodarg urges everyone to address their own, local, people’s concerns and forget quick fix global solutions not matter how lucrative those quick fix solutions promise to be for The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation or other participants in the big Pharma cartel. He appeals to us all to take personal responsibility. to inform ourselves and to ensure that the worldwide madness about this crisis of lies fake statistics and the incredibly dangerous ‘solutions’ is resolved by public action immediately.

Coronavirus deaths: Are The Authorities Deceiving Us?

Yes we know we’ve used it before but we like it

Yesterday we reported that a Canadian outfit, CitizensLab had carried out a forensic data analysis of China’s response to the Coronavirus outbreak and concluded that while politicians (anvious perhaps of the way authoritarian governments like China’s can trample on human rights and civil liberties and silence critics by simply shooting them,) and academics (aka “scientists” or “experts”) are heaping praise on the way the communist regime in Beijing has contained and controlled its Coronavirus epidemic, the Chinese have actually being lying, the epidemc is still raging and real numbers of infections by, and deaths from COVID – 19 to use its technical name are far higher than are being reported,

SHOCK! HORROR! A socialist government lying to cover up its failures, incompetence and illegal activities in developing biological weapons. How could any reasonable person have suspected such a thing?

Well it seems the governments of the liberal democracies are not avese to playing the same game. The extreme measures introduced in the UK to tackle coronavirus by virtually putting the entire nation in lockdown have been justified because of the need to save lives, but if we look a little way below the surface, these measures are based on some very dubious evidence.

Matemati cal Modelling (yes that old demon again) carried out by Imperial College London has been used by “scientists” and “experts” to inform government that unless new powers were enacted and used to curtail freedom of movement, social interaction and necessary activities like food shopping as many as 500,000 could die in our epidemic. That is a worst case scenario of course, but the best case scenario, that for the majority of people who are healthy, well nourished and living in a reasonably good environment, Coronavirus will be a relatively minor infection, in fact many of us will be unaware we have been infected with the virus.

The 500,000 dead being quoted as if it is the most likely outcome, although it is a worst case scenario, has the sticky fingerprints of the deep state (i.e. the civil, military and security services all over it, these agencies have a long track record of using fear and panic to reassert their authority when they feel control is slipping away from them. Even the government’s previous, more gentle strategy to slow the spread was likely to lead to 250,000 deaths, the research suggested. But where did these figures come from?

The warnings based on output from mathematical models remember,  prompted ministers to announce on Monday the biggest assault on personal freedom in the UK since World War 2, with the public being told to stay in their homes as much as possible, not reduce shopping trips to a minimum, not to go to pubs, clubs or theatres, and to work from home if possible. Sporting events had been shut down the previous wee

The move has hit the economy, putting jobs at risk and prompting schools to be closed and exams cancelled. In other words chaos rules, but then as author Terry Pratchett said, “In any conflict between order and chaos, chaos will win because it’s better organised.”

But is there any substance in those figures or are they plucked out of the air as previous estimates of the threat of pandemic diseases were. It was predicted millions would die, in reality a few people here ad there felt a bit poorly. Professor Neil Ferguson,  a senior academic involved in modelling the course of the epidemic told the BBC’s Today Programme earlier this week there was “no alternative” to the curtailment of personal liberty if 250,000 lives were not to be risked. Not the weasel words there, if lives were not to be put at risk. Everything we do carries some degree of risk, whether we drive to work, take a bus or walk there is always the risk of us being involved in an accident. If we eat at a restaurant there is a risk of food poisoning and if we cok at home there could be a house fire or an electrical fault could kill us. Lives being put at risk is a universe away from lives being put in danger.

Another expert, Sir Patrick Vallance, the government’s chief scientific adviser, told BBC Radio 4’s Today program he had advised The House Of Commons Health Select Committee, the parliamentary overseer of health issues, that the hope was to keep the death toll below 20,000 by suppressing the virus.

That would still be worse than those killed by flu, he said, giving a number of 8,000 per year. But again there is no evidence to suggest this figure is in any way accurate. In fact there is strong evidence, when we analyse the modelling techniques, that the figures they produce are not only unreliable but are simply made up to grab headlines. The question the “scientits” and “experts” don’t want us to ask is

Would these people be dying anyway?

The quoted figures for likely deaths from coronavirus are astounding but what is not clear  because to put it bluntly, the modellers deliberately avoided factoring into the alogrithms is, to what extent the deaths predicted would occur without coronavirus?

The answer to that question can never truly be known or predicted with any degree of accuracy until the pandemic is over, which is why modelling is pointless unless qualified by numerous caveats. Given that the old and chronically ill are most vulnerable, would these people be dying anyway, of seasonal ‘flu, common colds, breathing problems brought on by extremes of cold or hot weather? My wife’s final illness was triggered by a very cold spell in the winter of 2019 although she survived some months. There was no infection; scoliosis – a lifelong condition – put pressure on her lungs, the cold spell exacerbated that and … well several months later we are still waiting for the hospital to tell us exactly what happened. But whatever it was, it was neither the cold itself nor a cold weather infection, our home is well heated and Teri did not have to go outside.

Every year over 500,000 people die in England and Wales: inclide Scotland and Northern Ireland, and that goes up to over 600,000. The models being used to predict coronavirus deaths are not on top of this but included in the figure. Many of those deaths assigned to “The Corona Virus pandemic would be within this “normal” number of expected deaths. In short, they would have died anyway.

It was a point conceded by Sir Patrick at a press conference on Thursday when he said there would be “some overlap” between coronavirus deaths and expected deaths – he just did not know how much of an overlap. To put it another way the numbers of deaths likely to occur because of Coronavirus infection are expected quite small, but in a time of pandemic almost every death can be described as coronavirus related as most of us will have been in contact with someone carrying the virus, or in a public building that infected people of people who have been in contact with others carrying the virus have passed through.

As the 19th century British Prime Minister George Canning said: “I can make statistics tell me anything except the truth.

As We Predicted The Coronavirus bill Is The Biggest Assault On Freedom Since World War 2

Coronavirus: Some people are taking the concept of self isolation a bit too far
Picture source: Buzzfeed

Things have gone so far beyond what can be considered a rational response to an outbreak of a highly contagious but for most people relatively minor illness that I am starting to believe even the conspiracy theories I know I made up myself. Along with my fellow Boggart Bloggers I predicted weeks ago the current outbreak  of the so – called coronavirus would see a massive hyping of the threat level leading up to an assault on our freedoms. And that is exactly what we have seen happening over the past week.

The first move was the cancellation of all sporting events and concerts, followed by the enforced closure of entertainment events and though all public gatherings have not quite been outlawed there is enormous pressure on organisers to cancel. Even the Glastonbury music and counterculture festival has been cancelled “to prevent people being exposed to coronavirus,” which is totally illogical, people who go to Glastonbury are exposed to at least a hundred diseases far worse than coronavirs whenever they use Glastonbury’s infamous toilet facilities.

The Glastonbury long drop toilets

Picture: Metro.co.uk

In the last 48 hours schools have been closed and people urged to work from home. And people like myself who are aged over 70 have been warned that if we don’t place ourselves under house arrest (self – isolate they euphemistically call it,) for four months the ban on our enjoying any social activity may have to be legally enforced. Naturally we, being a generation that has lived through worse crises, have responded “Self – Isolate my arse.”

It’s only going to get worse of course.

The powers that the “Coronavirus Bill” being rushed through parliament will to give the state levels of power over individuals unprecedented outside of wartime. It is the most extensive encroachment on British civil liberties we have ever seen outside of wartime. In the event of the pandemic being as serious as scientists have warned the government will need some of these powers, but when has reality ever come close to the scale of catastrophe scientists warn of. Remember the Swine flu, Bird flu, SARS and MERS epidemics that were going to sweep the world, all occurred since the beginning of the curent century and are all but forgotten now, because the dire warnings, the attempts to stir up mass hysteria and the predictions of doom heralded only minor events with the dead numbered in hundreds rather than millions.

If we were facing anything like the level of threat governments, bureaucracies like The United Nations and the World Health Organisation, and the mass media are suggesting, some of the powers governments are giving themselves might be justified. But here are a few statistics that put the whole thing in perspective:

104,385 Seasonal flu deaths this year worldwide

537Seasonal flu deaths today worldwide.

8,988 Covid19 deaths this year worldwide

And here’s a statistic that will put the whole thing into prespective: worldwide, slightly over 4000 people die every day from tuberculosis. There’s no panic about that, nobody is screaming it the end of civilization as we know it, yet in the nine weeks since coronavirus reached Europe less than 5000 have died of corona virus, (a significantly smaller number than have died of seasonal flu in the corresponding period.

Bizarrely we also have our governments in the liberal democracies praising the government of China (where the disease allegedly originated after a genetically modified virus escaped from a biological weapons laboratory,) for effectively controlling the epidemic there. Official figures from the Chinese government claim there have been about 80,000 conformed cases and 5,000 deaths to date. But China is a socialist dictatorship run by an authoritarian, tyrannical bureaucracy. Only a fool would believe information released by the Chinese government.

Unofficial reports I’m hearing through my network of business contacts is that the Chinese government is lying through its teeth, the infection is still rampant in China, there have been upwards of 100,000 fatalities and many millions of infections, the stories of hospitals built from scratch being fully operational 30 seconds after work on the foundations is begun (OK, I’m exaggerating for effect, but you know what I mean,) are typical of the bullshit that always comes out of socialist governments to mask the fact that in a crisis bureaucrats (or CHIMPS as they are sometimes known, Completely Hopeless In Most Practical Situations,) never have a clue how to deal with the problems thrown up by a crisis.

The upshot of all this confusing, misleading and downright false information is that it is more more, not less, important to scrutinise what is going on. We must not be seduced by those soothing messages from the authorities that they have everything under control and so long as we obey orders the authorities will protect us. THEY HAVEN’T A FUCKING CLUE.

Many people will not like this process of questioning everything. Just as during a terror attack, they want firm assurances that there is nothing to worry about and everything will soon be back to normal and become irritated with those who ask the difficult questions and reveal that the people who are supposed to be in charge as as ill – informed as. The fact that those in authority do not like being questionedat makes it even more important that we question them and continue to question them. We have a right to be told how being stripped of certain civil liberties will help fight a virus about which little is known.

Yesterday the government published some guidance on what measures its coronavirus bill will introduce. That’s all we have for now, that and the news that the Labour opposition will support the bil in parliament. We’ll will be able to scrutinise the bill properly when the it reaches parliament in a few days time. The Prime Minister’s office expects it to get royal assent by the end of this month (March,). It’s being forced through quickly, for obvious reasons.

If you follow the link above,  the government web site’s text makes for very challenging reading, bureaucratic gobbledegook is never easy, but it gives a sense of how bad the government thinks things could get, or at least wants us to think it thinks things could get. It’s all speculation of course, we have no idea how the disease will spread other that that supplied by “scientists” with their mathematical models. And as we have observed in the case of climate change, mathematical models usually predict the opposite of what really happens. (Anyone remember that hilarious episode a few years ago when a research ship on a mission to study the effects of sea ice melt in Antarctica was stuck for several weeks in ice the mathematical models insisted was not there.

Once of the more disturbing clauses in the bill concerns indemnity from legal redress in cases of for clinical negligence cases arising from NHS efforts to deal with the virus. That suggests an awareness of how grim things could become if the health service starts to buckle under the strain.

There will also be provisions for local governments to take over the death management processes in their jurisdiction if the number of deaths becomes too high for private funeral directors to handle. That would involve local authorities managing and streamlining the work of funeral directors, mortuary owners and crematorium owners.

This is not a normal government bill. These are not normal times. But are governments merely taking sensible precautions or is something more sinister going on.

The powers the government will give itself are extraordinary. “The bill will enable the police and immigration officers to detain a person, for a limited period, who is, or may be, infectious and to take them to a suitable place to enable screening and assessment,” the notes read.’

It will also allow temporary judicial commissioners (JCs) to be appointed at the request of the Investigatory Powers Commissioner which taken at face value does not seem bad.  In fact it is the one of the most critical pieces of domestic legislation for national security and individual liberty. It creates the statutory basis for the use of the investigatory powers by the intelligence and law enforcement agencies, using warrants issued under the act. These warrants provide the agencies with the capability they need to protect national security and investigate and prevent serious crime. Fair enough, but it also paves the way for massive expansion of the mass surveillance systems already in place, particularly facial recognition technology. The Home Secretary, again at the request of the Investigatory Powers Commissioner, will also be allowed to vary the time allowed for urgent warrants to be reviewed by a JC and how long they can last before they need to be reviewed. The maximum time allowed for a review will be increased to a maximum of 12 days (up from the current 3 days). So goodbye Habeas Corpus and probably the presumption of innocence and the right to trial by jury with it.

Maintaining national security capabilities at a time of potential widespread upheaval is critical and it is necessary to ensure that the powers to vary specific aspects of the regime are available to the government should they be deemed necessary, for example if there are fewer JCs available than usual.

Reports in the British media over the past few days have predicted the government would advise older people to stay in their homes for a while ….. but four months? That could be a life sentence for some of us.

“We will be setting out more detail when it’s the right time to do,” Hancock added, which may mean within days or a few weeks down the line.

“We absolutely appreciate that it is a very big ask of the elderly and the vulnerable, and it’s for their own self-protection,” Hancock told Sky News reporter Sophy Ridge.

To date Britain has 1,140 confirmed cases of the Covid-19 disease, with the death toll standing at 21, both statistics being way below the numbers for seasonal ‘flu or sepsis. According to medical professionals elderly people have shown to be more vulnerable to the virus, as they are more likely to develop serious symptoms. This is a misunderstanding of statistics of course as healthy elderly people are no more likely to develop serious symptoms from the infection. It is true to say that elderly people are more likely to die of coronavirus, but then it’s also true to say that elederly people are more likely to die. End of story. Literally.

The British government has been criticized for its response to the coronavirus epidemic, which up to this latest panic measure was based on spreading fear and panic building up “herd immunity,” rather than restraining the spread of the virus. That approach assumed those who developed the infection and recovered would have some immunity, though there is as yet little evidence of that.

The plan to have elderly people isolated for months on end is a bad idea as they have to have contact with the outside world to get food, attend medical appointments and so on, it also subjects them to increased risks of depression and other problems, some critics of the idea say.

The flu vaccine is a spectacular failure

As part of The Daily Stirrer’s commitment to stirring things up for the environment, we feel obliged to question the 2sacred cow” narratives of the establisment, particularly those which are presented as “for the public good,” but which on closer examination are for the good of corporate profits and the increase of political control over our daily lives. One of these narratives in recent years has been the promotion of vaccines, particularly those of dubious value such as the ‘flu vaccine, which people of a certain age and above are urged to get each year.

The ‘flu vaccine is big business for the pharmaceutical companies that make vaccines, but how effective is it?

from NewsTarget, 03 March 2020

We’re often bombarded with “helpful” reminders to get our flu vaccines as winter rolls around, but when you take a closer look at the medical literature, there’s a lot about the shot that simply doesn’t add up. There are really two main qualities that you’d expect a vaccine that is pushed on the masses to possess: safety and efficacy. Unfortunately, the flu vaccine fails on both counts.

There’s a huge body of evidence showing just how ineffective the flu vaccine is and how easily its effectiveness can drop depending on personal factors. The CDC can never really say just how well a particular season’s flu vaccine will work as it must be created well ahead of the flu season, and there’s no way of knowing which strains will dominate in a particular year – they can only guess. Then, they point out that past seasons have seen efficacies in the range of 40 to 60 percent, as if that’s somehow something to brag about!

And when you look at particular years or groups of people alone, it fares far worse, with the overall effectiveness of 2018-2019 vaccine being just 29 percent across all the various age groups and flu viruses. This is according to information compiled by Children’s Health Defense.

In February of 2019, flu vaccines were actually ineffective 91 percent of the time. And that upper efficacy of the range the CDC touts of 60 percent has only been reached once in the last 15 years. Some years have seen failure rates of as high as 90 percent, which is what happened in 2004-2005.

Though its official failure figure is somewhat questionable, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is finally admitting, at least, that the MMR vaccine for measles, mumps, and rubella doesn’t always work as claimed – and even when it seems like it does, the vaccine’s effectiveness always wanes over time.
