Is Coronavirus as serious as they say?

Quite a scathing wee article - the lockdown sceptics have been relying on two experts who have been proved wrong & don't appear to understand the arguments they've been making.


This is pretty shameful of them:

But there are consequences. On the day I heard from Young, I also got an email from a hospital doctor: “Not just me but every doctor I work with in acute care has treated people sick or even dying with Covid-19 who point-blank refused to believe it was real or that they had it, because of what they read or heard on social media or from certain commentators.” And there are no jokes to be made about that.

I would think that would be discriminatory and could be fought in court? Asking because I don’t know. I mean if it was mandatory by the government that would be one thing, but for a business to not hire you or not give you work doesn’t seem legal.

Anyway, or more importantly it doesn’t make sense why people care if others don’t want to be vaccinated. If they choose to be vaccinated then why would they need to fear those don’t choose to?
Yes, it could be fought in court I guess. But only after the event of a sacking. That itself presents problems (which employers know): the plaintiff would have to pay thousands and thousands whilst probably being without employment. And even if they won the case, they wouldn’t necessarily be awarded costs.

Even if you’re sure you’re in the right, civil court cases are risky projects. Realistically, it requires class action.

It's more of a blood disease than a respiratory one. The details are gruesome.

So then they should just fast. Fasting thins the blood (you should see my bruises when I fast, also my menstrual cycle is thinner than water (although that's not technically blood I guess)). Problem solved.

Almost a third of recovered Covid patients return to hospital in five months and one in eight die​

UK records 1,610 further Covid deaths - new daily high​

"The UK has recorded 1,610 further coronavirus deaths. This is the largest daily figure for Covid deaths (defined as deaths within 28 days of testing positive) recorded so far on a single day."

Phew, I'm so glad that there wasn't a second wave of this pandemic which is, according to some on here, basically a cold and to which we all have herd immunity anyway.

Give it two years, and the wave of abject poverty that will be consuming the UK will make today’s problematic times seem like halcyon days—if you happen to care about such things as poverty (the bourgeoisie tend not to).

We are about to experience the worst depression for 300 years. There are worse things than dying as people will find out again. And most ailments are worse than Covid for most people.

The response to the pandemic is what’s being questioned, and endless updates of the death toll don’t illuminate the big picture.

NHS briefings to doctors, last March, suggested the total number of deaths without the lockdown would be 200-250,000. My guess is that by the time this is declared over, about 200,000 deaths will be associated with the virus in the UK. But social equality (of the meaningful kind) will have been put back decades.

Ahead lies years of malnourishment, slum housing, mental illness, declining wages, state-led thought oppression, and health care decline. Plus the risk of war(s) which goes hand in hand with all economic declines.

Even before the pandemic, UK life expectancy for the poorest was falling: a post-war first. I don’t remember the media giving a toss about those premature deaths.

In a few years, the real disease might then be recognised to be an unduly terrified population’s complicity with a government whose leader had conceded his adoration for Thatcher—including her description of an empowered working class people as ‘the enemy within’.

I will return to Ian Brown’s point: if the state cared so much about old people then why have so many been turned away from the NHS they’d helped create, in their moment of greatest need? That’s occurred variously because doctors said ‘patients’ had Covid, also as they’ve said they haven’t.

It’s a joke. The best so far.
