Brilliant ONS web page, you enter your post code and see just how few are the actual covid deaths in your area for this fake 'second wave' and the reason you are currently sitting in lockdown.

Bear in mind too that over half will be false positives so half of them probably died of something else anyway.

Shame they don't also include the 100 deaths a day caused by denial of health service *, that would make a sweet counterpoint and highlight the complete and total incompetence of our politicians.

* one of the irrefutable stats that came thick and fast in Dr Clare Craig's excellent 20 min interview linked in the post above.

Deaths involving COVID-19 - Interactive map - Office for National Statistics (ons.gov.uk)

 

More ONS data, all-cause deaths 1990 - 2020. Remember that this year's total includes 30,000 non-covid excess deaths caused by denial of health service.

Many countries now posting end of year deaths data and it's obvious that 2020 was a bad year for flu type deaths but not something we haven't seen many times before. The reaction this time though has been excessive in the extreme and much more destructive than the virus. Worse still is that there will clearly be no end to this self inflicted catastrophe.

The UK stands out has having made monumental mistakes greatest of which was allowing people to die in order to save the NHS which was never actually 'threatened' at all (eg Nightingale hospitals never used). The NHS coped with equal sized spikes in 1999 and 2000 and would have done so again. But now of course the NHS, like the schools, have no intension of ever returning to 'normal'.

 

Meanwhile, just one aspect of the 'forever after' legacy of this insanity, a new study on mask wearing in schools in Germany.

"First results of a Germany-wide registry mask in 25.930 children." Impairments were reported by 68% of the parents - irritability 60% - headache 53% - difficulty concentrating 50% - less happiness 49% - malaise 42% - impaired learning 38% - fatigue 37%

The data says different. Currently over 25 research papers published with evidence lockdowns don't work, none that prove they do. And as for masks ...

The statistics that make school closures “inevitable” and a full national lockdown very likely (in a week or so) itv.com/news/2021-01-0…

 

'The statistics' er ... yeah, right, the ones produced by the (not fit for purpose) PCR test? 

Reminder that hospital admissions and deaths from flu type illnesses is at normal levels for the time of year.

But wait, the PCR test has a history of creating pseudo epidemics, who knew? 🤷‍♀️ (well the medical establishment actually).

NYT article from 2007.

Faith in Quick Test Leads to Epidemic That Wasn’t - The New York Times (nytimes.com)

 

"At Dartmouth, when the first suspect pertussis cases emerged and the P.C.R. test showed pertussis, doctors believed it. The results seem completely consistent with the patients’ symptoms.

“That’s how the whole thing got started,” Dr. Kirkland said. Then the doctors decided to test people who did not have severe coughing."

 

Sound familiar?

FOLLOW THE MONEY

List of SAGE members with their fingers in the pie. Spoiler Alert: it's practically all of them.

 

Pathologists recently pointed out that during the first wave in April Deaths closely mirrored Cases but that relationship completely broke down after the introduction of mass testing asymptomatics.

It's unlikely Drs are suddenly misdiagnosing Deaths so the problem must lie with the Cases data.

The medical 'experts' in SAGE must be aware of the history of the PCR test and the ease with which it has triggered pseudo epidemics in the past (see NYT article linked in last post).

Makes you wonder why they don't seem to have considered the possibility in any of their reports.

Remember why you're in Lockdown? No neither can I.

PHE data;

"week 52 no statistically significant increase in excess all-cause mortality by week of death above the 2 z-score threshold was seen overall."

All-cause deaths declining in normal winter seasonal pattern.

This is just admissions via A&E. Most hospital admissions do not come via A&E.

In the same report COVID-19 admissions towards end of Dec. via A&E are approx. 300 per day

https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/948470/EDSSSBulletin2020wk52.pdf

However, overall hospital admission for COVID-19 around the same time are around 3000 per day:

https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/healthcare

Therefore A&E admissions are accounting for only 10% of COVID-19 total hospital admissions.

It is incorrect to say that case increase is not being reflected in hospital admissions (COVID-19 hospital admissions below):

👀 don't forget you are basically currently under house arrest as ordered by our glorious leader 👀

admissions always increase under 'winter pressures' every year. The key is, is the current year greater than average and by your own linked fact sheet the answer is no.

There is no baseline for Covid specifically because this is it's first year but Covid is also listed as an Acute Respiratory Infection and, as expected, acute respiratory infections were increasing, but is still below the baseline.

I was simply pointing out that your previous post was wrong.

You claimed that rising cases were not being reflected in hospital admissions. They clearly are, just not via A&E.

But hospital admissions are not up (not above normal for this time of year), but 'covid cases' are way up.

Covid labelling is up and the labelling is a function of the faulty PCR test.

If the PCR testing was giving genuine results then all-cause  admissions and all-cause deaths would also be way up over average, they are not.

The only possible explanation is mislabelling/misdiagnosis of covid as a result of faulty testing.

That's very misleading as there are 20% more ICU beds in 2020 than 2019 (see footnote on your chart). We also don't know how many beds were available in 2017 or 2018. It's comparing one day in 2020 versus the monthly average for the past 3 years.

This is one of the worst charts I have ever seen and believe me I've seen a lot!

the chart was created in response to the suggestion that hospitals and specifically ICU's were being overwhelmed when in fact they were not and were in line with the previous 3 year average.

Dec 20th was the latest data set available (and still is).

As nearly all respiratory infection deaths occur in hospital so the mortality figures are able to give a year on year comparison, with the dominant flu strain for each year, up to Dec 20th.

I never suggested that hospitals or ICUs were being overwhelmed.

Firstly, I pointed out that you were wrong to say that the increase in cases was not leading to an increase in hospital admissions.

Then I pointed out that your chart for ICU capacity was highly misleading.

You don't seem to be reading carefully any of my responses and are just ignoring any feedback on any of your data/charts. I think I will back away from this thread as it is obviously your personal outlet for anything COVID related that suits your agenda.

increase in covid labelled cases were not leading to increased hospital admissions and deaths, as stated previously they did in the first wave but not this second (fake) wave. The current increase happens every year at this time and the numbers are in line with previous years so blatantly nothing to do with covid, if it was related to covid cases the numbers would above the average not below it.

The chart did indeed dispel the fake news that covid patients were overwhelming ICU, they just weren't.

I gave you feedback, your own linked data showed you were wrong in your conclusions.

missing the point, there is an explosion of new case numbers since the beginning of Dec but only the usual seasonal increase in admissions and deaths. These don't sit together, there is clearly something wrong with one of the data sets.

New data today;

London cases, explosive rise continues ...

image.png.ec2615541727abf27eebebe06c20a358.png

But calls to 999 for Covid like symptoms ... er, minimal.

image.png.4a6f2c58fdb69bb3d8c6a77f1ac6a771.png

 

reports of Covid-like symptoms that users of the ZOE app send in each day,  ... er, flat.

image.png.ed684ef3367c75c67fe48988891af058.png

There is clearly a major problem with the testing data.

I refer again to the PCR's known history for triggering pseudo epidemics. See NYT article link posted above.

The (natural) immunity deniers are pretending that the cases numbers are correct but they just can't be.

You can only catch covid (test +ive)  if you have no immunity. If you have no immunity you will get sick as in the first wave and this is just not happening at all.

My point was that case numbers are feeding into hospital admissions. I have no idea whether hospital (NOT A&E) admissions are above or below seasonal averages - I can't find the official data.

I then criticised your ICU chart which you never really responded to. It is very misleading.

I then show ONS charts that demonstrate a clear above trend increase in deaths (above 5 year averages) and you just respond with some chart from an app and some chart about 999 calls.

We are going round in circles....

    • Imagination and remembrance: what role should historical epidemiology play in a world bewitched by mathematical modelling of COVID-19 and other epidemics? | SpringerLink Jordan Schachtel  @JordanSchachtel  9h ''I opposed lockdowns instinctively (bc they are totalitarian insanity), & after reading pandemic materials from CDC, WHO, etc & finding no basis for lockdowns, it became obvious these orgs were engaging in political science. This paper reinforces position.'' "Every established respiratory pandemic of the last 130 years has caused seasonal waves of infection and has culminated in viral endemicity. Despite this robust observation, initial models of COVID-19 excluded this possibility".                                                            ------------------------------------------------------------------   Beijing's Useful Idiots | ZeroHedge ''Bear in mind that in the heat of this pandemic, papers printed in important journals were peer-reviewed within 10 weeks; one rattled through the process in just nine days for Nature. But, like Petrovsky, I have heard similar stories from many other frustrated experts who confronted the conventional wisdom that this lethal virus was a natural spillover event. Some could not even get letters published, let alone challenge those key papers promoting the Chinese perspective which have since turned out to be flawed or wrong.'' ''Only now is acceptance emerging that the science establishment colluded to dismiss the lab leak hypothesis as a conspiracy theory, assisted by prominent experts with clear conflicts of interest, patsy politicians and a pathetic media that mostly failed to do its job. And yet, at the heart of this scandal lie some of the world’s most influential science journals.''
    • Folk will continue to believe what they want to believe. A nice, friendly, wholesome narrative is preferable to one which questions whether the whole thing has been a major error of judgement. Emperor and new clothes scenario.  Yes my wife is not the only one having trouble with AZ, thousands of others are (check out twitter and FB (though FB groups regarding vaccine and side effects are being shut down regularly, as freedom of speech is great as long as it's not controversial or contradictory to the prevailing govt narrative). However, we are being labelled conspiracy theorists for questioning the validity of the presented evidence re AZ and even Covid. Which is news to us. We are just a normal family doing our best to get by. Noone wants to hear any "bad" news, even if it has merit. So by extension, being rational has translated into being irrational. Many folk are sleepwalking hoping this dream will end, not seeing the wood for the trees, instead of being awake (not woke, but awake) and affecting change through observation and exchange of information. But observation is a rare commodity and fear discourages free exchange of information. It's all "meh meh meh" .....and they want to give the vaccine to kids ...have they no shame?
