Are COVID cases being wildly overstated?

I found this link today on Twitter. https://www.thebernician.net/nhs-consultant-says-staff-are-being-silenced-over-covid-19/

Am curious whether people think it is accurate. I’m especially interested in the perspectives of UK Ratburgers.

  1. I saw a similar story at PJMedia about how numbers in Florida are being manipulated by State health officials. I will say this, I wouldn’t put it past these bureaucrats to inflate numbers for whatever reason. Which leads me to this: Why would you want numbers up?

    Maybe there really is some sinister global cabal turning every country into a police state.  (To do that, you don’t need local policemen; in fact you wouldn’t want them.)

    Governments can do things in the name of health that they wouldn’t dare (yet) do otherwise.  In fact they still, in our country, don’t dare to ban the anarchists’ “protests”, even while the rest of us are firmly confined for our own good.
    Just a year ago, “lockdown” referred to a security measure to quell prison riots, remember?

    Global tyranny, whatever and whoever it is, has found its cudgel: fear of mortality—and has wielded it on a hitherto undreampt-of scale.   We have submitted, literally! to being muzzled whenever we do shuffle out to the exercise yard.

    As told by my brother, a person in law enforcement in Florida; A nurse he knows, caretaker to several octogenarians, had access to test kits. She turned in the samples from two kits without ever using them. They came back positive.

    Why? I dunno…..

    You tell me, or postulate about the accuracy of the kits, or the testing in the lab.

  4. The site on which this is posted, “The Bernician” is “out there”.  It is operated by Michael O’Bernicia, a British stand-up comedian.  Check out the article previous to the the one cited in the main post, “Don’t Trust The Plan To Distract You From The Real Plan”.  I’ll just cite some words and phrases to give you a taste.

    … dystopian nightmare … Trump and Q-Anon … Rothschild … soft-kill genocide … 5G Roll-Out … COVID-1984 … mandatory vaxxtermination … Gates-funded GAVI … Rockefeller-Rothschild sponsored Lock-Step program … international Marxist revolution … UN Agendas 21 and 30 … banksters’ puppet governments … Bilderberger … suspected Mossad agent … reducing the world’s population by up to 95% …

    When you read this stuff which sounds like it was cut and pasted from a Lyndon LaRouche publication from the 1970s, it makes you wonder about the authenticity of the statement by an anonymous source identified only as a “consultant” to the NHS.

    Well it’s funny you say this because the very policies being implemented in this COVID thing are very similar to the predictive policing policies that AG Barr announces last October.

    There are just too many stories like this for me to say that there isn’t something being orchestrated. Here’s the thing: the people who targeted Trump, covered for Epstein, and spent a decade lying about Afghanistan are the exact same people promulgating this sham of a pandemic. There I said it.

    John I hate to break it to you but this here member of your site is inclined to think there is something to that excerpt. Gates HAS expressed his desire to see the global population decrease. The UN HAS issued two major policy initiatives aimed at curtailing birth rates and shoving us all into cities. Banksters DO control the governments of the developed world through central banking schemes. So if that is “out There” then consider me on the Outer Limits (awesome tv show reference).

  8. Anything connected with the Wuhan virus carries a Federal bounty.  A hit-and-run fatality that “tests” positive for Wuhan antibodies is worth $39,000.  A hospital stay plus ventilator and meds in ICU  can run $10K/day, central reimbursement no questions asked.  Blacks, Browns, homeless, and the old are being scythed.

    Civil servant and union pension payout impossibilities are evaporating.  Police and teacher liabilities are being compassionately defunded.  Manic psychotic murderous lying Democrat-Socialism and all its tentacles are unimpeded in all things, gorging on the national exchequer.  The Federal Reserve System is not even bound by printing money – byte me.  Mint all the Wuhan Virus “positivity” you like,  Databases are unverifiable.

    The Steele dossier must be resurrected.

  9. Focusing on “cases” is looking for knowledge in all the wrong places.  The definition of “case” in the media is delightfully vague — but it is overwhelmingly clear that the vast majority of “cases” are at no risk of dying, or even of getting sick.  Valid “cases” mostly indicate that the individual has done her bit for society by developing resistance to the disease and becoming part of what our Betters call “herd immunity”.

    “Cases” are good!  Let’s hope they are not being wildly over-stated, because the more the merrier — and the sooner we really will get to “population immunity”.

    I just check to see if Richard posted it. 🙂

  11. There is a lot of weird with this pandemic, or “pandemic”, but it is not an entirely imaginary thing. The hospitals filled up in Connecticut though they have now subsided there. They are filling up in Florida. The ICU situation is probably worse than public statements indicate; that was true at my daughter’s hospital. She saw a lot of people die, not the normal  number, and with symptoms consistent with descriptions ofCovid19.

    I read somewhere that the deaths in NYC metro in April and May were more than twice the averages of the previous few years. That’s not imaginary.

    Whether the scale of general disruption and economic destruction to minimize infections made sense, probably no one will know. Part of that disruption was the halting of almost all other medical care, so that hospitals in less Covid-affected regions were empty.

    Ironically, the hospital where my daughter was, that was running flat-out at the height of local hospitalizations, lost so much money from their foregone, more lucrative, elective surgeries that they have laid off a lot of staff including good surgeons.

  12. I don’t know about ‘wildly’, but I suspect they are being overstated, firstly, because the MSM’s #1 goal is to harm Trump. All else flows from this in weighing the validity what we see and hear as ‘news’. The impetus to inflate also follows from the structure, ethos, funding and public relations of bureaucratic/technocratic organizations. It is axiomatic that every such entity primarily acts to further its own power and Emanuel’s (Rahm) law is being employed to the max in this regard, at all levels: the worse the crisis appears (does anyone doubt that appearance has replaced reality as the means of implementing political agendas?), the more power one may appropriate ‘for the greater good’. No matter the mechanism by which numbers are inflated, and certainly there is gross manipulation of cause of death on death certificates, the manipulated public perceptions and not reality, will result in further serious erosion of individual liberty. Add to this the liberties being extinguished by the authorities siding with “peaceful protesters” (again, perception), and we have a perfect storm for erasing the small remnant of the Bill of Rights. As I said in my post America is Over, we are no longer a nation with equality under the rule of law. Some are clearly more equal – ‘under color of law’ (and that old legal expression has certainly taken on startling new meaning!)

    Yes I saw some things there which made me queasy.

    That is interesting. My step-dad is a nurse in Dallas and he told me the same thing regarding elective surgeries. The problem isn’t running out of hospital beds. It’s running out of hospital staff.

  15. I think the Africans get it. They get experimented on by a bunch of Western NGOs, so the president of Tanzania got suspicious and tested a goat, and fruit using the Covid testing kits and they came back positive. Something fishy is going on. I don’t know exactly what, but I don’t trust anything coming out of the media, NOR the alphabet soup health bureaucrats.

    A stopped 24-hour clock is right only once every 24 hours. Just so with ‘Plugs’ Biden. He got one thing right: the MSM and alphabet soup health bureaucrats –  are ” lying dog-faced pony soldiers”.
