A Guardian analysis has found that there have been thousands of excess deaths of people at home in the UK due to the lockdown.

“The data shows 8,196 more deaths at home in England, Wales and Scotland compared with the five-year average for this time of year, including 6,546 non-Covid deaths,” reports the newspaper.

“It also indicates a drop in non-Covid deaths in hospital, however, leading experts to conclude that many who would ordinarily have been admitted to a ward and died there are instead dying at home.”

According to Jason Oke, a statistician with the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford, one explanation for the numbers is that, “People are dying of other causes that would not have happened under normal conditions – and are collateral damage of the lockdown.”

Another analysis suggests there could have already been around 10,000 excess deaths in the UK compared with previous years.

It’s a similar story in Italy, where there have already been 11,600 excess deaths due to seriously sick people avoiding hospitals.

“Data from other countries has shown delayed presentation in patients with heart attacks during the pandemic, either because people don’t want to burden the health service at the current time, or because of fear of catching Covid-19,” said Prof Andrew Goddard. “It is critical that patients who are worried they may be having a heart attack or stroke should call 999.”

As we previously highlighted, a data analyst consortium in South Africa found that the economic consequences of the country’s lockdown will lead to 29 times more people dying than the coronavirus itself.

Professor Richard Sullivan also warned that there will be more excess cancer deaths in the UK than total coronavirus deaths due to people’s access to screenings and treatment being restricted as a result of the lockdown.

His comments were echoed by Peter Nilsson, a professor of internal medicine and epidemiology at Lund University, who said, “It’s so important to understand that the deaths of COVID-19 will be far less than the deaths caused by societal lockdown when the economy is ruined.”

Experts have also warned that there will be 1.4 million deaths from untreated TB infections due to the lockdown.

If the lockdown itself will end up costing significantly more lives than had countries followed the example of Sweden, which didn’t lockdown, then what was the point of the lockdown?

Joe Rogan Debunks Claims He Spread ‘Anti-Vaxxer’ Conspiracy Theories

Posts clip of Bill Gates admitting 80% of participants suffered side effects after corona vaccine trial.

Joe Rogan responded to criticism that he was spreading “anti-covid vaccine conspiracy theories” during his podcast with Alex Jones by posting a CBS News clip in which Bill Gates admitted that in one COVID vaccine trial, 80% of participants suffered side-effects.

Following a failed outrage campaign to have Rogan’s podcast with Jones deplatformed altogether, critics then turned to the content itself, accusing Rogan of facilitating dangerous conspiracy theories about COVID-19 vaccines.

Their specific gripe centered on Jones’ claim that a coronavirus vaccine trial left 80% of participants with side-effects.

“I knew people were going to criticize the content of the podcast without even listening and I was right,” said Rogan on his Instagram page.

I knew people were going to criticize the content of the podcast without even listening and I was right. That’s why I fact checked every single crazy thing he said, and all of them were verified. People have said he spread “anti-covid vaccine conspiracy theories” because he said that 80% of the people who were given one of the vaccines got sick. Here’s the video of Bill Gates admitting it himself. Now, I’m NOT anti vaccine, and if a safe and effective covid vaccine is created I’ll take it and encourage others to take it, but I wanted to put this video up to validate what he said. He said a lot of crazy, but accurate things, and that’s what I’ve been saying about him for years. He’s most certainly fucked up in the past, but this episode and the subjects he exposed highlight why I chose to have him on.

Rogan posted a video of Bill Gates appearing on CBS News, during which the host explained how at least 80% of participants in a coronavirus vaccine trial experienced a “systemic side effect ranging from severe chills to fevers.”

Gates was then asked, “Are these vaccines safe?” to which he countered that the side effects were not “super severe”.

The host then emphasized that “everybody with a high dose had a side effect,” to which Gates responded, “Yeah but some of that is not dramatic, where you know it’s just super painful.”

“Now, I’m NOT anti vaccine, and if a safe and effective covid vaccine is created I’ll take it and encourage others to take it, but I wanted to put this video up to validate what he said,” wrote Rogan.

“He said a lot of crazy, but accurate things, and that’s what I’ve been saying about him for years. He’s most certainly fucked up in the past, but this episode and the subjects he exposed highlight why I chose to have him on.”

UK Police Force Says it Will Break Up Christmas Gatherings to Enforce COVID Rules

“Police will have to intervene.”

A police force in the UK has vowed to break up Christmas family gatherings that violate coronavirus ‘social distancing’ restrictions.

The West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson said the force wouldn’t hesitate to intervene in situations where the rules were being broken.

“If we think there’s large groups of people gathering where they shouldn’t be, then police will have to intervene. If, again, there’s flagrant breaking of the rules, then the police would have to enforce,” Jamieson remarked.

The West Midlands is currently under a Tier 2 lockdown, which means that it’s illegal for two separate households to mix indoors, although there appears to be widespread non-compliance across the country.

After BBC journalist Victoria Derbyshire said she would break the rules to see her family at Christmas, she was forced to recant and apologize.

Respondents to the news vented their fury.

“Its almost as if the police and politicians are deliberately trying to provoke people. If they do try this at Xmas things will get very nasty very quickly,” said one.

“It is now the time to stand up against this tyranny!” added another.

Others pointed out that without a warrant, police wouldn’t legally be able to enter homes to enforce the rules.

Coronavirus

Sniffer Dogs Could Be Used to Detect if Someone is Infected With COVID

Will patrol airports and other public venues.

Published

Sniffer dogs that can detect if someone is infected with COVID-19 could be used to patrol public areas such as airports and other busy venues in the near future.

Health minister Lord Bethell praised an “extremely exciting” trial taking place in the UK that tests whether dogs can be trained to identify unique odours associated with the coronavirus infection.

With Finland having already deployed corona-sniffing dogs at its main international airport, similar measures could soon be rolled out across the west.

UK Secretary of State Matt Hancock, an ardent lockdown advocate, will visit the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to see for himself the accuracy of the tests.

“Dogs can be used as a way of screening crowds in places like airports and high-density venues,” said Lord Bethell.

And there you were thinking you’d just have to tolerate masks, mandatory government apps and vaccines to get about in the “new normal”.

As we previously highlighted, robots are already being rolled out to monitor mask compliance, while robot dogs in Singapore are already patrolling parks and other public spaces to enforce social distancing.
