When the UK’s governments health team get together and discuss ways of keeping the population, scared, dumb and easily controlled. They must not imagine people have the ability to go to the horses moth - so to speak, and ask it some pressing questions; questions like why are we being told we are in a new third wave when hardly anyone is dying from Covid in England’s hospitals.
Whilst the Covid-19 fear-porn industry is currently in full-swing – scaring the multitudes with talk of new variants, third-waves and rising cases – in an effort to soften up the public for an extension to the restrictions I thought I would compare this time last year with the current trends using the NHS’s own death data, and see if we are heading for the predicted doom scenario the so-called experts at SAGE are currently promulgating to the masses.
This time last year - starting from the 3rd of June hitherto the 10th there was a combined total of 663 deaths (averaged out to around 82 people a day). Over the same period up until today, 28 people (3.5 daily average) have been recorded as having died with Covid. Just to put that in perspective, that is a 96% reduction in deaths from this time last year, when we were told the first wave had ended.
From late April, up-until the current day (the Indian variant has been present since April) daily deaths from Covid-19 in England’s hospitals has not been higher than 14; and if we were to make some assumptions about those who were in hospital for something else, but tested positive whilst in Hospital, those numbers could me much lower.
To further ram home this point: Ten times as many people are dying in England from Flu and Pneumonia.
This whole fking sorry saga is turning into a damp squid. I just wish more people would stop reading the script.
