|COVID-19 stats are suspect|
The first thought is the fact that it is not really new. It's very similar to SARS of a
few years ago now called Sars-CoV-1. This latest form of it is called Sars-CoV-2 and it's actually pretty similar to its recent cousin. The similarity is such that the Coronavirus Sars-CoV-2 which causes COVID-19 cannot really be called new.
The second thought that I thought that I want to share with you is that COVID-19 is not really a pandemic. Or alternatively we could say that the definition of a pandemic has been changed for COVID-19. A pandemic used to be defined as a widespread disease, a disease that was highly infectious across many different countries, but also that was having a significant impact on the economy of the country. That is to say, to put it bluntly, if it were killing working age people and younger it would have been a pandemic according to the old definition. COVID-19 has been redefined as a pandemic. The average age of death is over 82 years old. So although we love our 82 year old members of our population, the people who are that age, who are well over retirement age aren't really significantly impacting the economy, if they die at that age. The average age of death in the UK is 82 not significantly different from the average age of death from COVID-19.
The third thought is that lockdowns do not work. The point here is that lockdowns of the sort we've been having in the UK, where you close down lots of businesses, you don't allow people to shop in most of the stores do not have the desired effect. In the first lockdown actually closed down even churches, although they've been opening this third lockdown drill which are experiencing now early 2021. But even whenever whatever sort of level it is of the three lockdowns we've had in the UK, none of them have had a significant effect on the overall death rates: lockdowns don't work. Of course, they have some effect but these are mainly negative effects. Mainly what they do is push up the number of excess deaths that we can expect after the lockdowns have ended
My final thought is this: the number of deaths due to COVID-19 is significantly lower than that reported. I don't know how much lower with any precision because the actual number of deaths reported by the Office of National Statistics and other official bodies aren't are not necessarily due to COVID-19. If someone dies within 28 days of having a PCR positive PCR test positive, then they're reported in the published statistics. What does that mean? Well, a PCR test is a test that magnifies a small amount of the virus or sometimes just a fragment of a virus. You can have a positive test by just having a fragment of a dead virus. And if that was up to 28 days ago, well, that virus could have been in the body for a while; It could have been there for another few weeks before maybe it was over a month before. Thus the stats include people who have completely recovered from COVID-19 but then die of something completely unrelated.
The PCR test is not a great test used on this massive scale without necessarily having had a proper examination of the symptoms. The government statistics are not a lie. It actually says on any graph, you look at that this is a death with a positive PCR test within 28 days, OR it could be a doctor actually diagnose them correctly using the symptoms and some tests. OR it could be that it's just mentioned somewhere on the death certificate. Any of those criteria being met means the death it makes its way into the statistics which people assume is people who have died of COVID-19. Now, this means that what's being reported is deaths of people who at some time in the past, were exposed to this virus, not people who actually died of it. So the numbers of deaths that are often quoted are meaningless in deciding how much disease is prevalent out there.
A concluding thought: there's no need to be scared of COVID-19 and we shouldn't use it be using lockdowns to counter it. Lockdowns don't help and they have lots of negative effects.. Let's make sure let's make absolutely sure that these lockdowns stop as soon as possible and never happened again.
