NY Times Admits WHO’s Decision Not to Close Borders at Start of Pandemic Was Based on “Politics,” Not Science

The New York Times has published an article admitting what we told you 8 months ago – that the World Health Organization’s directive at the start of the coronavirus pandemic that countries shouldn’t close their borders was a decision based on “politics,” not science.

“The World Health Organization has long encouraged mass tourism and said closing borders wouldn’t stop the spread of Covid-19. A New York Times investigation found this policy was never based on science, but instead on politics and economics,” tweeted the NY Times with a link to an article detailing the issue.

As we reported back on January 31, the WHO repeatedly urged countries not to impose border controls, in part to avoid the “stigmatization” of Chinese people.

In other words, not being seen to be racist and preventing people’s feelings from being hurt was more important than stopping the spread of the pandemic.

Then in April, we documented how the WHO blocked doctors from urging countries to impose border controls to stop the spread of coronavirus.

“So the official meeting records say there was a divergence of views but they won’t actually go into detail about who was trying to block it. But there were doctors there who wanted to issue travel bans and the World Health Organization blocked it,” reported Sky News Australia.

The next month, scientists in Brazil also confirmed that the countries most affected by the coronavirus spread were the ones who continued to allow unrestricted travel across their borders.

A Mount Sinai study found that New York City’s record-high coronavirus cases and deaths were “predominately” due to travel from Europe, meaning that many more lives could have been saved if borders had been closed down earlier.

Countries such as Russia that were pro-active in closing down their borders early recorded significantly fewer COVID-19 cases and deaths than other countries of a similar population size.

Despite its 144 million population, Russia recorded under 21,000 coronavirus deaths, compared to the UK, which has a population of 65 million yet recorded more than double that number of COVID deaths.

Video: Furious Welshman Tears Down Sheeting off “Non-Essential” Goods in COVID Lockdown Protest

“‘Since when has clothing not been essential?”

A video out of Wales shows a furious shopper in a branch of Tesco tearing away plastic sheeting used to cover “non-essential” goods while decrying a COVID lockdown that is robbing people of “basic human needs.”

As we highlighted yesterday, photos began emerging of bedding and other supermarket items deemed “non-essential” being covered with plastic sheeting to prevent people in Wales from buying them.

Now a new video has emerged of an irate Welshman tearing down similar sheeting in a branch of Tesco in Bangor last night.

“Since when have clothes been exempt?, rip the f***ers off… kids’ f***ing clothes, it is a disgrace,” said 28-year-old Gwilym Owen as he tore away the sheeting.

“All you need to do is don’t comply and take them off,” he added as he continued to remove the protective covering.

After a member of security approached Owen, he responded, “‘Since when has clothing not been essential?”

At the end of the clip, other members of staff appear to try to take the cameraman’s phone away from him while he is recording.

Owen subsequently explained his actions on Facebook, noting that he didn’t care about the backlash because he had “had enough” of the restrictions.

‘I heard supermarkets have put covers over ‘non essential’ things such as clothes. We’re heading into winter now and who would have thought clothes for children weren’t essential?’

‘I’m sure there are people out there who can barely afford heating in their houses and now they want to stop people buying clothes in supermarkets.

‘I don’t expect everyone to do what I’ve done here but I do expect everyone to know that denying the public clothing is nothing but immoral and inhuman.

‘So no I’m not ashamed of what I’ve done.

‘I’m not prepared to live in a society where they can take basic human needs away like being able to buy new clothes, especially for children. So I’ll do what I can to stop it.

‘I’ve had it up to my tether with what’s going on and we need more people to take a stand for.

Tesco responded by saying they had been ordered by the government to cover up the items.

Residents of Wales are currently under a ‘Tier 3’ lockdown, which means people are being urged to stay at home, must not visit other households, while pubs, restaurants, gyms, churches and shops deemed “non-essential” are all closed.

The new lockdown, ludicrously referred to as a “circuit breaker,” will be imposed for 17 days and is expected to further wreck the Welsh economy.

Coronavirus

People Prevented From Buying “Non-Essential” Items Due to Lockdown

People living under new lockdown rules in Wales have been prevented from buying so-called “non-essential” items, which are being covered with plastic sheeting at supermarkets.

“Non-essential items being covered up in supermarkets in Wales. Has it really come to this?” asked journalist Grant Tucker.

The image shows shop workers covering up what appear to be duvets and other bedding products.

Why people should be prevented from buying bedding products during a coronavirus lockdown is anyone’s guess, but it’s par for the course given how much society has been deformed thanks to such petty restrictions.

As we previously highlighted, during the first lockdown back in April, a police force in the UK threatened to start searching people’s shopping baskets in order to catch coronavirus lockdown violators.

Northamptonshire Police chief constable Nick Adderley prompted outrage after he appeared in a video to warn people who were buying unessential items at grocery stores that their purchases may be scrutinized by the authorities.

“We will not at this stage be starting to marshal supermarkets and checking the items in baskets and trolleys to see whether it’s a legitimate, necessary item but again be under no illusion, if people do not heed the warnings and the pleas that I’m making today, we will start to do that,” said Adderley.

In the same month, one shopper was fined by police for buying wine and potato chips, which were deemed to be “non-essential” items.

Residents of Wales are currently under a ‘Tier 3’ lockdown, which means people are being urged to stay at home, must not visit other households, while pubs, restaurants, gyms, churches and shops deemed “non-essential” are all closed.

Kamala Harris: “220 Million Americans Died” From COVID

Whoops.

Published

Kamala Harris has one-upped Joe Biden’s numerous coronavirus speaking gaffes after she claimed that 220 million Americans had died as a result of COVID-19.

“We’re looking at over 220 million Americans who just in the last several months died,” said the Vice Presidential candidate.

Harris obviously meant to say 220 thousand, but her verbal slip up is a continuation of a trend that has befallen Joe Biden on several occasions.

Biden has wildly exaggerated the death toll of coronavirus at least three separate times.

During a speech honoring Ruth Bader Ginsburg last month, Biden blamed President Trump for the spread of the virus and stated, “It’s estimated that 200 million people have died—probably by the time I—finish this talk.”

Back in May, Biden also claimed that the virus had cost the, “lives of millions of people, millions of people.”

A month later, the former VP claimed that coronavirus had killed 120 million Americans.

One wonders whether the verbal gaffes are making some Americans actually believe that the COVID-19 death toll is actually far higher than the real number.

A survey published earlier this year found that the average American thought 9 per cent of the population had died from coronavirus, a figure which equates to over 30 million people.
