Today, we’ll have a lesson on how to create ‘fear and hysteria’ in one easy ‘report’. Before we get to that, there are a few other CV-19 items which are of interest, such as reports on ‘test and trace’ and on the collateral damages to our health through Lockdown.
Starting with that last item first, we read that ‘it has come to light’ that the government’s message to “Save the NHS” by staying at home, a.k.a. ‘Lockdown’, has led to an increase in deaths from heart attacks:
“The study, led by the University of Leeds, tracked more than 50,000 patients who had a heart attack and were treated at 99 major hospitals in England before or during lockdown. It found that, overall, the number being treated for the most common type of heart attack […] fell by 49 per cent in the two months from March 23. Deaths from such attacks rose by 39 per cent in the month after lockdown, with 30-day mortality rates rising from 5.4 per cent to 7.5 per cent. The number of people being seen for the most major type of heart attack fell by 29 per cent, the study found.” (link, paywalled)
The conclusion reached by those doctors was that the government message to stay at home was ‘too effective’:
“The research prompted warnings that the Government’s “Stay Home” message may have had a “devastating” impact by deterring thousands of patients in medical crisis from seeking help.” (link, paywalled)
Odd, isn’t it, that no mention was made about GPs barricading themselves inside their surgeries, only ‘open’ to telephone consultations. Odd, isn’t it, that these doctors did not mention the actual and reasonable fear of people of catching the virus when going to hospital.
A report on a poll amongst members of the Royal College of Physicians shows that their members had reached the same conclusion:
“A Royal College of Physicians survey found that 60 per cent of doctors were concerned that their patients had come to harm after delays in diagnosis or treatment during the pandemic. The poll, which involved 1,029 senior doctors and consultants, suggested that cardiology, cancer, diabetes, care of the elderly, lung disease and illnesses of the digestive system were the most common areas affected. […] Clinicians said the message to “Stay at home, protect the NHS, save lives” may have had the “unintended consequence” of deterring people from seeking urgent help when they developed heart attack symptoms.” (link, paywalled)
Odd, isn’t it, that lockdown sceptics, many clinicians amongst them, have been writing about just this ‘collateral damage’ caused by Lockdown. Odd, isn’t it, that saving ‘Our Sacred Cow’ has turned out to have been at the cost of our lives, lives lost not to CV-19 but to other illnesses and diseases. Don’t expect ‘Our MSM’ to accept the blame for this situation!
There’s another oddity which has come to light. The all-party Home Affairs committee of the HoC was told by experts that:
“Experts from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine told the MPs that they calculated up to 10,000 infected people, largely from Spain, France and Italy – including families returning from half-term breaks – imported Covid-19 into the UK.” (paywalled link)
Interesting, isn’t it: these findings are based on ‘calculations’, not on tests which didn’t exist at that time. Moreover, it’s noteworthy that these findings don’t mention the daily flights from e.g. China or the subcontinent whose passengers surely were also infected. I wonder why that is … perhaps the government at that time didn’t want to be called ‘racist’, as ‘Our MSM’ called President Trump when he stopped flights from China at the beginning of the outbreak.
And so to the lesson in ‘how to create fear and hysteria’ in one article. Yesterday afternoon (it’s now hidden away) the DT published a shock-horror report under the headline:
“Councils can demolish contaminated buildings under new powers to stop second coronavirus wave – Care homes, factories, offices and even private homes could be bulldozed as last resort if virus starts to run out of control” (paywalled link)
Omigawd! Has Johnson now totally lost it? You may very well think so! After all, it’s his photo, at one of those daily press conference lecterns, which tops the report. A closer look however shows that this report is based on a government publication issued by the Dept of Health on July 17th. So it’s not precisely breaking news, is it, nor does it seem to have worried our intrepid CV-19 reporters at that time.
That document gives far-reaching powers to local authorities as government tries to shift its CV-19 policies from national to to local lockdowns. You can read the whole document here. The article however raises fear, hysteria and outrage by headlining just one sentence in that government text while quoting the relevant passage lower down in the report:
“The document, published by the Department of Health and Social Care, advises councils that, under the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984, they can apply to a magistrate “to impose restrictions or requirements to close contaminated premises; close public spaces in the area of the local authority; detain a conveyance or movable structure; disinfect or decontaminate premises; or order that a building, conveyance or structure be destroyed”. (paywalled link)
Yes, it’s a CYA exercise by government, attempting to cover all eventualities. However, a local tinpot dictator must first apply to magistrates before going on a rampage so Johnson isn’t calling out the bulldozers, is he!
The headline for this report, based on that one sentence, was calculated to create unnecessary fear and outrage. People generally read headlines rather than the whole thing, so this paragraph near the end probably didn’t reach the attention of the readers:
“It raises the possibility that care homes, factories, offices or even private homes could be bulldozed as a last resort if the virus starts to run out of control, although such measures have not been considered necessary during the outbreak.” (paywalled link)
So it is only ‘a possibility’, but let’s get in the phrase ‘if the virus starts to run out of control’ while shamefacedly mentioning that even at the height of the outbreak such demolitions haven’t taken place.
That report was about creating more fear and hysteria while not addressing the fact that local authorities are being given more powers – and they’re taking it:
“Councils across the north of England are to set up their own track-and-trace systems to plug holes in the government’s £10 billion national scheme.” (link, paywalled)
Local authorities believe that they’re better able to trace possible CV-19 infected people than the national NHS scheme, with NHS ‘tracing’ staff now saying that it would have been better if this scheme had been ‘local’ from the beginning:
“Those being contacted were likely to be more willing to disclose their contacts and co-operate if they were being called by “someone you know and trust from your local GP surgery” rather than a stranger, […] Many calls from the service’s 0300 number are being ignored, and tracers have to leave a voicemail.” (link, paywalled)
It’s not, as government authorities seem to believe, about people being unwilling to come forward to be tested nor about “only about 80%” of people being ‘traced’, it’s about something else. See this analysis in the Times:
“Strangely, the system finds it hardest to reach contacts living in the same household, tracing barely half of them as against three quarters of those living elsewhere. While people will informally speak to family members, the system wants to speak to them itself given concerns about household transmission in the northwest.” (link, paywalled)
I leave it to you to puzzle out why “The System” wants to speak to everyone in the same household – does “The System” not believe that people may ‘speak informally’ with others in their own household? Perhaps it’s just another box-ticking exercise aimed at getting even more data for government, via ‘Our NHS’.
I leave you with a remarkable piece of WHO ‘News’ – on vaccines. The WHO has warned Russia not to ‘rush its vaccines to market’:
“A WHO spokesman said: “There are established practices and there are guidelines out. Any vaccine . . . for this purpose should be, of course, going through all the various trials and tests before being licensed.” (link, paywalled)
Russia aims to introduce their vaccine in October, but has so far not done any 2nd and 3rd-phase trials according to the WHO. Rest assured though, the DT has ‘previously revealed’ on August 1st that:
“Britain would be likely to reject a potentially game-changing coronavirus vaccine from Russia amid strong reservations about the trial process there, the Telegraph can reveal.That approach chimes with the US, where Anthony Fauci, America’s top infectious disease official, raised doubts about the testing regimes for potential vaccines in both Russia and China. There are strict international protocols governing the development of new drugs.” (link, paywalled)
So no Russian vaccine for us – but where’s the WHO warning about Chinese vaccines? Was the warning not to rush out vaccines meant just for Russia? Doesn’t it apply generally? Answers on a postcard!
Apologies for delving into the CV-19 madness stoked by ‘Our MSM’. Sadly, given their ongoing aim to keep us cowering in fear, it was useful to show how they work, how they set about to create that climate of fear where people don’t dare to see a doctor or go to hospital.
What would the intrepid CV-19 reporters possibly write about if that virus weren’t there! Let’s hope that with the end of the Silly Season we’ll also see an end to this MSM-induced madness.
