Government Adviser Says Fatigue, Headache, Sore Throat and Diarrhoea Should be Added to List of COVID Symptoms

Critics warn this will artificially inflate COVID cases.

A SAGE government adviser has said that fatigue, headache, sore throat and diarrhoea should be added to the list of COVID symptoms, prompting concerns that this will artificially inflate case numbers.

The London Times reports: “Including fatigue, headache, sore throat and diarrhoea on the official list of Covid symptoms would pick up a third more cases of the virus, Calum Semple, a member of the Scientific advisory group for emergencies (Sage), said.”

“As older people are vaccinated, proportionally more younger people are having the disease and they have a different group of symptoms,” Semple asserted, adding, “By extending the symptom list, we think we’ll pick up about a third more cases.”

By including symptoms that are common for other illnesses such as flu, if a third more cases are suddenly ‘discovered, SAGE can then attempt to fan the flames of hysteria by claiming the country is experiencing another “wave” of COVID infections.

Calling the idea “mission creep,” commentator Maajid Nawaz suggested that adding more symptoms to the list is an excuse to artificially boost case numbers, which will then be used to argue for further lockdowns in the winter.

Nawaz posted a Twitter thread in which he explained how including new symptoms would be “misleadingly unhelpful” and that COVID numbers are already being inflated because three times more people are being tested compared to December.

“We are NOT finding more covid positives. All we are doing is testing far more people (3x more people) to get the equivalent result,” wrote Nawaz, pointing out that hospitalization numbers remain low.

Some experts have previously warned that flu cases were already being falsely counted as COVID cases in order to boost figures, with epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski cautioning that, “Influenza has been renamed COVID-19 in large part.”

Back in February, UK health authorities announced that not a single case of influenza had been detected this year, prompting some to express incredulity at the claim.

England is set to exit all COVID restrictions on July 19th, but that date was supposed to pass on June 21st before the government decided to extend it, citing the threat of the new delta variant.

As we previously highlighted, when asked when all social distancing and mask mandates should end, one SAGE adviser, a former member of the Communist Party, expressed her belief that they should continue “forever”.

The new ‘Omicron’ variant of COVID-19 was first detected in four people who were fully vaccinated, according to a public statement by the Botswana government.

The new variant, which some claim is three times more contagious, was initially discovered in Botswana before it spread across South Africa.

The news was met with global alarm, prompting financial markets to plummet and new travel bans to be put in place.

According to a public statement by the Botswana government, the new mutation was first discovered in four people who had received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

According to the report, four cases of the new variant “were reported and recorded” on November 22.

“The preliminary report revealed that all the four had been completely vaccinated for COVID-19,” according to Botswana authorities.

In a subsequent statement, the government revealed that the new variant “was detected on four foreign nationals who had entered Botswana on the 7th November 2021, on a diplomatic mission.”

“The quartet tested positive for COVID-19 on the 11th November 2021 as they were preparing to return,” according to the statement.

In a piece of good news, others who had close contact with the infectees “have no COVID-19 symptoms and have tested negative for COVID-19.”

As we highlighted earlier, according to Belgian Prime Minister , the Omicron variant is so potentially devastating that it should be called ‘COVID-21’.

Meanwhile, South Africa’s medical chief Dr. Angelique Coetzee described the panic as a “storm in a teacup,” adding that she had only seen “very very mild cases” of the variant so far.

Belgian Prime Minister Says New Variant Heralds Arrival of ‘COVID-21’

Claims it’s three times more infectious.

The Prime Minister of Belgium says the new mutant variant of coronavirus is so potentially devastating that it should be called ‘COVID-21’.

Yes, really.

Alexander De Croo made the comments during a press conference after international markets plummeted in response to the news that the ‘Nu’ variant of the virus had been discovered in Botswana and spread across South Africa.

“You could say that this is Covid-21 instead of Covid-19: it is three times more infectious than the original virus,” said De Croo.

His remarks came in the aftermath of sustained media panic over the new mutation and the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) describing the variant as “the worst one we’ve seen so far.”

It was confirmed that the B.1.1.529 variant had reached Europe after it was detected in someone who had entered Belgium after traveling to Egypt.

Some European countries are already tightening COVID restrictions despite the fact that very little is known about the new strain and it could take weeks to determine if it is a major threat.

However, international alarm over the mutation was questioned by South Africa’s medical chief Dr. Angelique Coetzee, who described the response as a “storm in a teacup.”

According to Coetzee, South Africa has only recorded “very very mild cases” of the variant so far.
