UK COVID Police Start Enforcing Lockdown By Visiting People’s Homes

Police in the UK are set to begin enforcing COVID lockdown rules by knocking on people’s doors to check they are self-isolating if they have been mandated to do so by the government.

The Daily Mail reports that the procedure will go into effect today, and will extend to anyone who has tested positive or come into contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus.

The government will use the National Health Service ‘Test and Trace’ app, which has been download by more than 10 million Britons, to issue self-isolation orders to the public.

Police will also operate from tip-offs, according to the report. In other words, police will rely on snitch neighbours who report infractions.

Anyone found to be breaking the quarantine rules could be fined up to ten thousand pounds. Employers who obligate those affected to go to work could also be fined.

The UK Home Secretary Priti Patel announced Sunday that the government “will not allow those who break the rules to reverse the hard-won progress made by the law-abiding majority.”

The Government announced that it will “use police resources to check compliance” and that police will “investigate and prosecute high-profile and egregious cases of non-compliance,” as well as “act on instances where third parties have identified others who have tested positive, but are not self-isolating.”

While people who comply remained trapped at home for up to two weeks, ‘COVID enforcers’ have been spotted patrolling the streets, peering into windows and letterboxes to ensure pubs and clubs are closed as part of the government’s draconian new coronavirus curfew.

In addition, Brits are now also being arrested on the streets for not wearing masks.

The government has introduced the measures off the back of media scaremongering about rising coronavirus cases, despite the fact that deaths and hospitalizations have flatlined and numerous warnings that the massive increase in testing is producing an overwhelming number of false positives.

Thousands gathered in London’s Trafalgar Square this past weekend to protest the crackdown on freedom, and were subject to heavy handed tactics by police:

China Makes Anal Swabs Mandatory For Nearly All Foreign Arrivals

China has made COVID-19 anal swab tests mandatory for nearly all international arrivals despite complaints that the procedure is humiliating.

The tests will be required for all travelers arriving at Beijing and Shanghai airports before they are allowed to enter the country.

Despite the degrading nature of the procedure, Chinese health authorities claim it is more effective at identifying COVID-19 than nasal swabs.

“The same procedure applies to visitors who came from countries where COVID-19 cases are high or they tested positive upon arrival,” reports IB Times. “If a person shows symptoms of diarrhea, he or she must also get an anal swab.”

An alternative may be offered where travelers can provide stool samples instead, a procedure that is almost as humiliating anyway.

“If people are not familiar with the procedure for taking an anal swab test, our employees will help explain how it will be done,” a representative for the epidemic control department in the Daxing district of Beijing said.

As we highlighted earlier this week, Tokyo has asked Beijing to stop performing COVID-19 anal swabs on its citizens after complaints that the procedure causes “psychological pain.”

Reports also emerged that U.S. diplomatic staff had been forced to undergo this procedure, although China initially denied this then claimed it was an “error”.

Given that the media and western leaders have effusively praised China for its coronavirus response, which at one point included welding people inside their own homes, one wonders why they would have a problem with anal swabs.

Surely if anal swabs provide a better way of detecting COVID-19, they should be made mandatory worldwide?

WarnerMedia CEO Apologizes After Saying COVID Pandemic Has Been ‘Really Good For CNN Ratings’

Jason Kilar provides accidental insight into why mainstream networks don’t want lockdown restrictions to end.

WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar apologized after celebrating the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic has been “really good for (CNN) ratings.”

Kilar made the initial remarks during the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference.

“It turns out that pandemic is a pretty big part of the news cycle, and that’s not going away anytime soon,” Kilar said.

“If you take a look at the ratings and the performance, it’s going well. And I think it’s going well because, A, the team at CNN is doing a fantastic job. And B, it turns out that the pandemic and the way that we can help inform and contextualize the pandemic, it turns out it’s really good for ratings,” he added.

WarnerMedia is the parent company of CNN.

After his comments received criticism, Kilar tried to walk them back, claiming, ” I would like nothing more than for this pandemic to be well behind us.”

Kilar’s hope that the pandemic is “not going away anytime soon” provides an insight into the agenda of networks like CNN when it comes to COVID-19 reporting.

Does CNN campaign against lockdown restrictions and mask mandates being lifted in the name of public safety, or is it more likely that a selfish motivation for maintaining high ratings is the real reason behind this editorial stance?

CNN recently enjoyed its best ever February in terms of overall viewers while also taking first place among viewers 25-54, the key demographic most valued by advertisers.

CNN Doctor Says Americans Should Mask Up & Social Distance Every Winter To Beat Flu

Face coverings are here to stay.

Dr. Paul Offit, a pediatrician who regularly appears on CNN, says Americans should wear masks and socially distance every winter in order to reduce flu hospitalizations and deaths.

“If we mask and social distance every winter, we will see a dramatic reduction in the flu, which usually causes hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations and tens of thousands of deaths,” Offit told the network.

As we previously highlighted, flu cases have virtually disappeared since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, with health authorities in England announcing that not a single case of influenza has been detected this year.

However, according to epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski, this is likely due to the fact that many flu infections are being falsely counted as COVID-19 cases.

Last month, Dr. Fauci also said that it’s to be expected Americans will be wearing masks for the rest of this year and into 2022.

A senior U.S. Army official also said that mask wearing and social distancing will become permanent, while CNN’s international security editor Nick Paton Walsh asserted that the mandatory wearing of masks will become “permanent,” “just part of life,” and that the public would need to “come to terms with it.”

Other prominent individuals, such as the World Economic Forum’s Klaus Schwab, have asserted that the world will “never” return to normal after the COVID pandemic.

“There will likely be more voluntary masking after the COVID pandemic has receded, especially during flu season,” writes Evan James. “But it’d be intolerable to expect to live in a “new normal” where masks and social distancing become a routine tool of government control, or where choosing not to mask becomes a cause for social ostracism.”
