Broadcaster Issued Warning After Falsely Claiming 90 Per Cent of COVID Patients Were Unvaccinated

Ofcom confirms spurious claim by doctor was incorrect.

British broadcaster ITV was issued a warning by regulator Ofcom after a guest and a presenter on a TV show falsely claimed that 90 per cent of COVID hospital patients were unvaccinated.

The spurious remarks were made by Dr. Hilary Jones and Lorraine Kelly during a segment on the Lorraine show last month.

“Those people who haven’t been vaccinated, we’d really love you to think again and be vaccinated because 90 per cent of people in hospital are unvaccinated right now with Covid,” said Dr. Jones.

“That’s a figure that we have to really concentrate on, 90 per cent of people in hospital have not been vaccinated,” Kelly repeated.

However, both the doctor and the host of the show were sharing medical misinformation. The actual figure at the time was around 36 per cent.

After Ofcom received nearly 4,000 complaints from viewers about the broadcast, the TV regulator issued a statement.

“This programme incorrectly referenced the proportion of unvaccinated COVID-19 patients in hospital,” it said.

“We have told ITV that greater care should be taken by trusted medical experts when presenting facts and figures on public health issues.”

However, despite the erroneous claim, Ofcom said it wouldn’t be launching a formal investigation because “vaccination against COVID-19 offers greater protection against serious health consequences” and as a result, “we do not consider that the error was sufficient to materially mislead viewers on this main point of discussion.”

As the Glasgow Times reports, “A clarification was broadcast on the show two days later, explaining the statistic related to patients in intensive care units rather than the proportion of unvaccinated COVID-19 patients in hospital.”

However, as Toby Young points out, this isn’t true either.

“In fact, it’s also not true that 90% of Covid patients in ICUs are unvaccinated, as we’ve pointed out many times before on this website. So even the “clarification” was misleading,” writes Young.

Dr. Hilary Jones has been a vehement lockdown advocate from the very start of the pandemic and has significantly heightened his profile (and fattened his bank balance) as a result of regular ITV appearances over the course of the last two years.

However, in the early months of outbreak, Jones infamously acknowledged that face masks were largely useless in stopping the spread of the virus, before ‘getting the memo’ and doing a complete 180.

CDC Now Investigating 180 Cases of Children With Hepatitis of “Unknown Cause”

But other experts say it was caused by lockdown weakening immune systems.

The CDC is now investigating 180 cases of children with hepatitis of an “unknown cause,” although health experts in the UK say the cause is likely kids having weakened immune systems due to lockdown.

Five deaths have occurred in the U.S. as a result of the infections, which have swept the globe, impacting numerous countries.

“Adenovirus infection is being investigated as being the possible cause, with nearly half the kids testing positive for the pathogen,” reports CNBC. “Adenovirus is a common virus that normally causes cold or flu-like symptoms. It is not a known cause of hepatitis in otherwise healthy children.”

As we highlighted last month, health experts in the UK warned that the outbreak was likely caused by multiple COVID-19 lockdowns preventing kids from socializing with others and therefore developing strong immune systems.

Adenoviruses cause the common cold, but this can develop into hepatitis if a weakened immune system is unable to fight it off.

“I think it is likely that children mixing in kindergartens and schools have lower immunity to seasonal adenoviruses than in previous years because of restrictions,” said Professor Simon Taylor-Robinson.

“This means they could be more at risk of developing hepatitis because their immune response is weaker to the virus,” he added.

Nowhere in the mainstream reporting of this new surge in cases is it mentioned that multiple lockdowns could have caused the outbreak

Instead, the CDC is still “conducting lab tests to see if the Covid virus might also be a possible cause,” despite the fact that the children impacted in the initial cluster of cases in Alabama did not have COVID-19.

The legacy media is loathe to admit that the same lockdowns they vehemently supported will have drastic consequences for years to come.

As we previously highlighted, a new study published in the Royal Society Open Science journal found that lockdowns in the UK caused around 60,000 children to suffer clinical depression.

A major study by Johns Hopkins University concluded that global lockdowns have had a much more detrimental impact on society than they have produced any benefit, with researchers urging that they “are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.”

Many infants are also suffering from cognitive developmental and speech disorders due to adults wearing face coverings during the pandemic.

Pew Survey Finds COVID Has Virtually Disappeared as a Major Concern For Americans

It’s over, but some restrictions remain.

Illustrating how the issue has largely disappeared, a new poll of Americans finds COVID to be the least of their concerns out of a list of 12 different subjects.

The survey was conducted by Pew Research between April 25-May 1.

Just 19 per cent of respondents said COVID was still a “very big problem,” while 31 per cent said it was a “small problem” and a further 12 per cent said it was “not a problem at all.”

In comparison, 70 per cent of Americans said inflation was a “very big problem,” with a further 23 per cent describing it as a “moderately big problem.”

Ten other issues, including violent crime, illegal immigration and the condition of infrastructure, all rank above COVID-19 in terms of being more of a concern.

As one commentator observed, the war in Ukraine appears nowhere on the list, although Pew chose not to include it as an option.

“Democrats are nearly four times as likely as Republicans to rate climate change as a very big problem (63% vs. 16%),” reports Pew. “Republicans, by contrast, are far more likely than Democrats to view illegal immigration as a very big problem (65% vs. 19%).”

Despite the pandemic virtually being over, numerous states are still enforcing indoor mask mandates and other COVID restrictions that refuse to die.

As we highlighted yesterday, Broadway star Patti LuPone launched an angry rant at an audience member for not wearing a mask properly during a Q&A session despite the fact that she wasn’t wearing one inside the theater.
