Parents have been seen lifting their children over the locked gates in Wigan Park,when will these stupid people listen ? And then I see this Bernadette they are having a party in Norley Hall I dont see what people dont get?

Quite a few ex service people on the streets of Manchester and surrounding areas though, some have been re homed by various groups and some want to be left as they are. I when I can, and a few others try to get them what they need food and drink wise, the odd bit of clothing and bedding etc, it's the very least anyone can do for them. It's a sad state of affairs.

Were do most people get their information from regarding this "pandemic"? or any other news story? the mainstream media (printed press, online, TV, radio).

The numbers of dead don't add up for a supposed virus. Most of the people ill from this, the elderly and people with pre existing health problems, exhibit flu like symptoms. On the .gov site it says:

Status of COVID-19

As of 19 March 2020, COVID-19 is no longer considered to be a high consequence infectious diseases (HCID) in the UK.

The 4 nations public health HCID group made an interim recommendation in January 2020 to classify COVID-19 as an HCID. This was based on consideration of the UK HCID criteria about the virus and the disease with information available during the early stages of the outbreak. Now that more is known about COVID-19, the public health bodies in the UK have reviewed the most up to date information about COVID-19 against the UK HCID criteria. They have determined that several features have now changed; in particular, more information is available about mortality rates (low overall), and there is now greater clinical awareness and a specific and sensitive laboratory test, the availability of which continues to increase.

The Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP) is also of the opinion that COVID-19 should no longer be classified as an HCID.

The need to have a national, coordinated response remains, but this is being met by the government’s COVID-19 response.

Cases of COVID-19 are no longer managed by HCID treatment centres only. All healthcare workers managing possible and confirmed cases should follow the updated national infection and prevention (IPC) guidance for COVID-19, which supersedes all previous IPC guidance for COVID-19. This guidance includes instructions about different personal protective equipment (PPE) ensembles that are appropriate for different clinical scenarios.

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/high-consequence-infectious-diseases-hcid#history

So why is everyone in lockdown when there is no threat?, why are people being threatened (which it basically is) to only go if it's absolutely necessary?. I've talked to people who have taken their dogs in the car out to the middle of nowhere with not a soul to be seen, away from harmsway, yet they have had a car police show up asking them what they are doing there. Sounds to me like don't want us to go anywhere regardless if it's to do with a virus. So much for the police serving the people.

And then there's the strange co-incidences. Lots of works of fiction eerily predicting all this:

The 1981 Dean Koontz novel, 'The Eyes of Darkness', which tells the story about a deadly virus that spreads from the city of Wuhan, China.

There's also a reference to a pandemic in a Sylvia Browne novel written in 2008.

A 2017 Asterix and Obelix children's book has a character named Coronavirus.

The 2011 film Contagion, starring Lawrence Fishburne, Jude Law and Gwenyth Paltrow, about a virus that spreads from Japan.

No, not very good at all. Downright misleading.

"Were do most people get their information from regarding this "pandemic"? or any other news story? the mainstream media (printed press, online, TV, radio)."

Not from scare mongering rants like your post.

This is a direct lift from a government web site , BUT gives a false interpretation, which is de-bunked here:

A TEENAGE boy has died after falling ill with the coronavirus in Portugal.

The 14-year-old's death follows that of a 16-year-old French schoolgirl, who died at a Paris hospital this week.

Posted by: tonker (21366)   Report abuse
That's what that bloke in the pub said. And he really knows his stuff!

The National Statistics, on the other hand, show a recorded excess death rate of over 417 per day in this December to March period 2017/2018. That means 417 per day 'over' the average of 1541 per day standard.

A summary of these figures -

“The number of excess winter deaths in England and Wales in 2017 to 2018 was the highest recorded since the winter of 1975 to 1976. However, peaks like these are not unusual – we have seen more than eight peaks during the last 40 years. It is likely that last winter’s increase was due to the predominant strain of flu, the effectiveness of the influenza vaccine and below-average winter temperatures”.


Up to now the number of UK deaths, due to Coronavirus, is around 1500. This is 13 per day.
Compare that, 13 per day, to the 2017/2018 figure of 417 per day and it fades into obscurity.

So, as Ashtonmon is, probably, suggesting, the BIG QUESTION is as follows :-

1) Why are they building morgues to house 12,000 bodies at a time? and 2) What do THEY know that they're not telling us?

Posted by: firefox (1493) Report abuse
What indeed.

Much more to this than meets the eye.

It's interesting that France only records deaths from cv that occur in hospital. On 2 April 884 deaths were recorded in nursing homes in France but none of those were included in the cv stats.

Almost every death is reported as Coronavirus related, it seems.
