Why # of +Tests ≠ # of Cases
There are many reasons for lacking confidence in pandemic stats, as the article below will explain. From the beginning reports contained an equivocation fallacy, ie. when an argument uses a word or phrase with more than one meaning. Positive tests for the virus, SARS CV2, were presented as though they were cases of people suffering with the disease, Covid19. In fact, many with enough virus to trigger positive had mild or no symptoms, and required no treatment at all–they were not cases of the disease. Then it seems that in some, if not many, jurisdictions the number of positive tests were treated as newly infected persons, even when one individual was tested multiple times.
The article Hospital has been pretty much empty for the entire period, written by “Penelope”, an Anonymous Hospital Worker in Surrey, UK. Excerpts in italics with my bolds. H/T Ice Age Now
I am a consultant at a major, regional hospital in Surrey, had agreed to give an interview to an anti lockdown activist in which I would have revealed my identity.
Changed my mind because all staff at all hospitals have been warned that if they make any statements to press/social media we may immediately be suspended without pay. I have a family, dependents.
In my opinion, and that of many of my colleagues, there has been no Covid Pandemic, certainly not in the Surrey region and I have heard from other colleagues this picture is the same throughout the country. Our hospital would normally expect to see around 350,000 out patients a year. Around 95,000 patients are admitted to hospital in a normal year and we would expect to see around a similar figure, perhaps 100,000 patients pass through our A&E [Accident & Emergency] department.
From March to June we would normally expect to see 100,000 out patients, around 30,000 patients admitted, and perhaps 30,000 pass through A&E. This year (and these figures are almost impossible to get hold of) we are over 95% down on all those numbers. In effect, the hospital has been pretty much empty for that entire period.
At the start, staff that questioned this were told that we were being used as ‘redundant’ capacity, kept back for the ‘deluge’ we were told would come. It never did come, and when staff began to question this, comments like, ‘for the greater good’ and to ‘protect the NHS’ came down from above. Now its just along the lines of, ‘Shut up or you don’t get paid’.
Every single test (of the same person) counted as a new case
The few Covid cases that we have had to get repeatedly tested, and every single test counted as a new case. Meaning the figures reported back to ONS/PHE (Office for National Statistics & Public Health England) were almost exponentially inflated. It could be that Covid cases reported by hospitals are between 5 to 10x higher than the real number of cases. There has been no pandemic and this goes a long way to explain why figures for the UK are so much higher than anywhere else in Europe.
They’ve been running empty ambulances during lockdown and are still doing it now. By this I mean ambulances are driving around, with their emergency alert systems active (sirens &/or lights) with no job to go to. When out of public view staff masks come off and distancing is not observed.
Masks are totally ineffective and dangerous
Indeed jokes are made about the measures, and I have heard staff express amazement that despite warnings on packets and at point of sales, telling people masks are totally ineffective and dangerous, the public still buy them, because a politician has told them to.
ALL elective surgery has been cancelled. Non-elective Surgery, this tends to be emergency surgery or that which is deemed urgent has been severely curtailed. People are at best being denied basic medical care and at worst being left to die, in some cases, in much distress and pain.
Staff that are responsible for death certification encouraged where possible to put Covid-19 complications as reason for death, even though the patient may have been asymptomatic and also not even tested for covid, grossly inflating the number of Covid deaths.
Remember Covid-19 itself can not kill. What kills is complications from the virus, typically pneumonia like symptoms.
These complications are in reality incredibly rare but have featured in a large amount of death certificates issued in recent months. As long as Covid-19 appears on a death certificate, that death is counted as Covid-19 in the figures released by the ONS and PHE.
Many death certificates (appear to) have been fraudulently completed
I genuinely believe that many death certificates, especially amongst the older 65+ demographic have been fraudulently completed so as to be counted as Covid-19 deaths when in reality Covid-19 complications did not cause the death.
There have been Thursday nights when I stood, alone in my office and cried as I heard people cheering and clapping outside. It sickens me to see all the ‘Thank You NHS’ signs up everywhere and the stolen rainbow that for me now says one word and word only; fear.
There are many good people in the NHS and whilst I do not plead forgiveness for myself, I do plead for them. Most are on low pay, they joined for the right reasons and I did and have been bullied and threatened that if they don’t ‘stay on message’ they don’t eat. I know that if a way could be found to assure staff within the NHS of safety against reprisals, there would be a tsunami of whistleblowers which I have no doubt would help end this complete and brutal insanity.
I am finding it increasingly hard to live with what I have been involved in and I am sorry this has happened.
To end, I would simply say this. Politicians haven’t changed, the country has just made a fatal mistake and started trusting them without question.
While I can buy into the woke academics and medical practitioners padding the Covid death count, this anonymous story is not credible enough to repost. Where is the deep journalism to verify this experience in other UK communities? we must be searching for the facts.
I agree Tom. I posted it as a single unfiltered, uncensored report. It should be investigated and the extent of its truth exposed. Do you think the authorities will respect this whistleblower or tighten the lid?
