    In the year [since then], Thailand has recorded an overall death toll from Covid of 72. Not 72,000, but 72, from a population slightly larger than the UK’s. To put that in perspective, more Thais die on the roads each day than have succumbed to Covid in all of the past 12 months.

    -----------------

    Lockdown Sceptics reader Rick Bradford has written to us from Thailand, where despite a super-low death toll the country is in the grip of Covid hysteria.

    Postcard From Bangkok

    Source: Lockdown Skeptics
    Published January 27th, 2021



    At first glance, there are many similarities between the progress of the Covid pandemic in Thailand and in the UK. Grim-faced ministers, surrounded by medical experts dressed in white lab coats to indicate authority and competence, appear on TV and announce a raft of restrictions on travel, restaurants, alcohol sales, beaches, markets and entertainment venues, the severity of which rely almost entirely on the number of new positive Covid tests recorded the previous day. The strategy is inconsistent and incoherent, and subject to reversal at whim.

    There is a familiar sense of hapless Government apparatchiks, bewildered by having to work with numbers, and relying on a motley selection of self-styled experts who also don’t know what is going on. The mantra of “We must do something, this is something, therefore we must do it” is heard as loud in Bangkok as it is in London. The Thai population, like the British, has been scared into regarding COVID-19 as something akin to the Black Death.

    But there is one glaring difference between the situation in Thailand and that in the UK. Thailand, with a steady influx of Chinese tourists, was one of the first countries to see infections caused by COVID-19, in January last year.

    In the year since then, Thailand has recorded an overall death toll from Covid of 72. Not 72,000, but 72, from a population slightly larger than the UK’s. To put that in perspective, more Thais die on the roads each day than have succumbed to Covid in all of the past 12 months. In fact, all-cause mortality in Thailand in 2020 was expected to be greatly reduced as travel restrictions dented the normal carnage on Thai roads, which claims over 25,000 lives a year. In fact, all-cause mortality in Thailand in 2020 was expected to be greatly reduced as travel restrictions dented the normal carnage on Thai roads, which claims over 25,000 lives a year.

    Covid, for some reason, has not caught on in Thailand. This is not to suggest that the Thai government is somehow more than 1,000 times more efficient than the UK Government.

    There are many factors at play. Thais are drenched every day in vitamin D from a relentless sun, the temperature rarely drops below 20 Celsius and is usually in the mid-30s, plus the population is younger than the UK’s, especially regarding the highly vulnerable geriatric category. There is also a much lower prevalence of obesity and Type-2 diabetes. This apparent high level of metabolic health occurs while Thailand spends £180 per person per year on its health system, almost 20 times less than the UK (£3,200). Thais may also benefit from a higher degree of prior immunity owing to earlier similar outbreaks, such as the SARS outbreak of 2003 which was quite localised to Asia.

    So the impact of Covid on Thailand has been almost entirely economic. The tourist industry, which in 2019 comprised over 10% of Thailand’s economy, has been shredded. Several million Thai workers have lost their jobs, and familiar tourist haunts such as Pattaya and Koh Samui are ghost towns, unlikely to fully recover.

    But the Government seems undeterred by the loss of perhaps £36 billion in annual tourism revenue and is pushing ahead with grandiose redevelopment plans, such as the expansion of the main international airport (which has lain empty for one year), a high-speed rail network which nobody can afford to take, and most ambitious of all, a space programme with an aim to travel to the moon within the next seven years.

    Given the chronic problems besetting Thailand’s economy, it is not surprising that many commentators have expressed a preference that Thailand’s first visitor to the moon should be General Prayut Chan-ocha, Prime Minister, and holder of the Knight Grand Cordon (Special Class) of The Most Exalted Order of the White Elephant.

    It seems fair to conclude that there is little point in comparing the death toll between different countries and drawing conclusions from the data. Both the UK and Thailand have incompetent governments which have trashed their respective economies for no apparent good reason.

    Whether their interventions and restrictions have had any impact on the trajectory of the Covid pandemic in their countries is something that will no doubt be debated for many years.

    STATISTICAL BOONDOGGLES

    In the UK it has been officially announced that when they say - 'A Covid Death' they are now including Flu deaths plus anybody who dies UP TO 60 DAYS after a positive covid test.

    There is a valid argument that says that it is impossible to say 'Died from Covid' for many, because a Covid infection can aggravate life threatening conditions without acting immediately, so in many cases it is a contributory factor to an un quantifiable extent.

    In general in the UK, and this may differ from countries with commercially driven medical systems, there are not any financial incentives to categorise a death as 'Covid related'.

    What we do see in the UK is a kind of creeping triage practise whereby if you are old, and there is a suspicion of a Covid infection, you are placed to the back of the line for treatment. If you call an ambulance it is healthier to say that you have not ever experienced symptoms of Covid, or met anybody so afflicted, ever.

    Most intelligent people are saying that in such circumstances it is quite hard to measure the impact of this virus and therefore the best way to measure this is to look at EXCESS DEATHS.

    Where they are going wrong is they then say - look at the excess deaths caused by the virus! In other words they attribute ALL excess deaths to the virus. We are now at the time when the 2020 excess death figures are starting to come out. They show a peak in March/April, and a small blip in December.

    The error being made will be that commentators and politicians will point at the graph, and use it as a key data point supporting policy.

    This is a mis-use or over simplification of the situation.

    The following are likely major contributors to the deaths that we are seeing, and in my opinion, until they have been quantified statistically, any talk of 'excess deaths due to covid' is misleading. (also of course note that no quantification efforts will be made, as they do not support the narrative.)

    1. During lock-down and afterwards, there has been severe disruption to the normal operations of the health system. Many cancelled consultations, scans, and operations. Also many people just did not go to Doctors or casualty out of fear or caution. This HAS to be a major factor.

    2. The effects of lock down include family stress, mental illness & depression including suicide, economic catastrophe for many, which is clearly linked to survival or otherwise, and sedentary, indulgent lifestyle changes which are known to be unhealthy.

    3. The Care Home mass casualty event in March/April. In common with the UK, some states in the US adopted a policy of shunting aged covid cases into Care Homes. This environment provided much lower levels of care, and due to staff lack of PPE and a lower level of infection control knowledge it is beyond dispute that many died there as a result. Infections raged through the care homes. Condolences to SO MANY who lost loved ones. In the UK there is the suspicion that things were even worse - I have heard accounts that suggest that the care regime or 'Care Pathway' was deliberately trying to kill them.

    4. Deliberate sabotage of the PCR test. This is my own theory. We know that current advice on how many magnification cycles is appropriate has been changed. They are winding down the cycle number to reduce the number of false positives. There is therefore the suspicion that there have been many false positives in the past. These are described as 'asymptomatic cases'. The problem with this is that if we cannot correctly identify infected people, how can we target them with therapies and/or isolate them? The answer is that we cannot, so a targeted response has been impossible. This may have been a factor in some deaths.

    5. The vaccine roll out is causing deaths, that are being passed off as Covid deaths most likely. They are prioritising care homes currently, then we are hearing about break-outs of the virus in homes post vaccination.mmmm. Of course a new and imperfect at best vaccine is a shock to the system of the aged. Often they are doing the flu vax at the same time.

    I was just figuring out, based on the most reliable data, how many extra deaths has been attributed to the covid count in the USA.

    I estimate it at about 50%! It should be around 200,000, not 400,000.

    Court Declares Regional LOCKDOWN UNCONSTITUTIONAL, ‘Catastrophically wrong’


    https://new.awakeningchannel.com/ger...hically-wrong/
    Here more about that:

    Weimar has shown how the judiciary can and must work, explains the German lawyer and co-founder of the Corona Committee Foundation, Dr. Reiner Fuellmich. The judge of the local court did exactly what would have been the task of the German Bundestag in spring 2020, namely to check facts. He explained in detail that the epidemic situation of national importance as decided by the Bundestag and its core, the threat of overloading the health system, never existed. For this reason, all measures are both unlawful and unconstitutional and therefore void.

    Excerpts from the judgment

    The judgment of the Weimar District Court on January 11, 2021, file number 6OWi-523 Js 202518/20, was preceded by a birthday party in April 2020, which was ended by the police. She saw this as a violation of the "Thuringian Ordinance on Measures Required to Curb the Spread of the Corona Virus SARS-CoV-2" and imposed fines. One of the party guests then sued and was acquitted. Those interested can read the full verdict here:
    https://www.wochenblick.at/wp-conten..._Beschluss.pdf

    RN 21:
    "There was no 'epidemic of national importance' (...), although the Bundestag has determined this with effect from March 28, 2020."

    RN29:
    "The horror scenarios that significantly influenced the decisions about the lockdown in the spring (...) were also based on incorrect assumptions about the lethality of the virus (so-called infection fatality rate = IFR) and the question of an existing or missing basic immunity against the virus the population."

    RN 31:
    "The general ban on contact or the ban on gathering (...) is unconstitutional for material reasons, because it violates the human dignity guaranteed in (...) as inviolable."

    RN 33:
    “A general ban on contact is a serious interference with civil rights. One of the fundamental freedoms of human beings in a free society is that they can determine for themselves which people (provided they are willing) and under which circumstances they come into contact. The free encounter of people with one another for the most varied of purposes is at the same time the elementary basis of society. In principle, the state has to refrain from any targeted regulatory and restrictive intervention. The question of how many people a citizen invites to his home or how many people a citizen meets in public places to go for a walk, play sports, go shopping or sit on a park bench does not interest the state . "

    RN 34:
    “Even in the risk analysis` Pandemic by Virus Modi-SARS` (...), which described a scenario with 7.5 million deaths, a general ban on contact (as well as curfews and the extensive shutdown of public life) is not considered. "

    RN36:
    “In addition, and as a separate aspect, it should be noted that the state, with the general ban on contact for the purpose of infection protection, treats every citizen as a potential threat to the health of third parties. If every citizen is viewed as a threat from whom others must be protected, he is at the same time deprived of the opportunity to decide what risks he exposes himself, which represents a fundamental freedom.

    RN49:
    "From the data from the Robert Koch Institute, the legislator was able to see that there was no evidence of the effectiveness of the lockdown that was decided on March 22nd, ..."

    RN78:
    Having said that, there can be no doubt that the number of deaths attributable to lockdown policy measures alone is many times that of deaths prevented by lockdown. For this reason alone, the standards to be assessed here do not meet the requirement of proportionality. Added to this are the direct and indirect restrictions of freedom, the gigantic financial damage, the immense damage to health and the ideal. The word 'disproportionate' is too colorless to even suggest the dimensions of what is happening. "

    Dr Lee Merritt lays out very succinctly :

    - why she thinks the virus is a bio weapon
    - the dynamics of coronavirus spread as a delivery system
    - organized suppression of cheap therapeutics
    - the importance of anti microbials
    - indonesian research suggesting that vitamin d status is the biggest factor determining whether infection leads to a severe case

    Tanzania's president warns of "dangerous and unnecessary" Covid-19 vaccination

    The story couldn't be more bizarre. The east African state of Tanzania, known for its positive corona tests on goats and papayas, received a total of 27 million euros from the European Union to fight the corona virus. Quasi as a bonus to the already generous development aid. But the decision-makers there are out of line when it comes to scaremongering around the supposedly dangerous virus, as two cases show.

    Courageous president exposes corona lie

    It was President John Magufuli (a chemist) personally who impressively demonstrated the flawedness of the corona tests in May last year. At that time he tested a goat and a papaya (!) Positive for the virus. The mockery and criticism from the West (strangely no racism?) Came promptly because he did not stick to the official narrative and publicly criticized the World Health Organization (WHO).

    Now Magufuli added: The Covid-19 vaccinations are dangerous, so he warned his citizens about the dangers of the vaccine. The WHO immediately urged Tanzania to follow "science" after the president said Covid-19 vaccinations were dangerous and unnecessary if people trusted God.

    In addition, he will not do a lockdown in his country or on his citizens.

    EU tried to bribe Tanzania

    A few months ago, the EU tried to bribe the African state with 27 million (!) Euros from the EU solidarity fund. The condition for the donation of money: The country should completely cordon off, i.e. lockdown, also for the tourists who support the country's economy. But also to enforce the Covid-19 measures prescribed by the WHO such as strict lockdowns, masks and mass vaccinations.

    The irony of the matter: Tanzania took the money and then declared the country coronavirus-free. Since then there have been no masks, vaccinations or lockdowns.

    In addition, the Tanzanian president said last November that he does not intend to use any Covid-19 vaccine and will instead rely on local herbs to protect against the disease.

    Africans more critical of corona hysteria

    While the entire western world continues to blindly succumb to the corona madness and its dictatorial features, the clocks in Africa (and also South America) are likely to go differently. There, the skepticism and resistance to the pandemia is much greater than in our latitudes. The South African Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng described the corona vaccination as “part of a satanic agenda” and recommended that his compatriots not be vaccinated.

    I can't see this without joining Telegram, but I'd love to know what the list of countries is.

    Ecuador should be among them: masks are mandated, but in public fewer people are bothering now. There's no enforcement apart from [usually] when entering a store. Everything else is open, including all businesses and transport, and life feels all very normal.

    1 In 7 Brits Believe There Is A Huge Coronavirus Cover-Up Involving Politicians, Scientists And Journalists


    https://uk.yahoo.com/news/covid-cons...094210400.html

    An alarming number of Brits believe conspiracy theories about coronavirus, according to a new study, including a belief authorities are involved in a widespread cover-up of key information.

    Some 27% of the population thought that the “real truth about coronavirus is being kept from the public” while 15% think politicians, scientists and journalists are actively collaborating to deceive the public.

    One in five (20%) think the government “wants us to think that coronavirus is much more dangerous than it really is” while 19% agreed the government “is deliberately allowing people to die”.

    Nearly a third (30%) believe the death toll is being deliberately exaggerated while 8% think Bill Gates is using vaccines to implant microchips into people.

    Respondents who said they get a great deal or fair amount of information on the pandemic from certain online sources, including social media, are more likely to have conspiracy suspicions, the study by the University of Bristol and King’s College London found.

    While 15% of the public overall think “reporters, scientists, and government officials are involved in a conspiracy to cover up important information about coronavirus”, this view is held by much larger proportions of those who get a great deal or fair amount of their information on the pandemic from the search engine DuckDuckGo (50%), Instagram (43%), WhatsApp (40%), YouTube (37%), Bing (34%), Facebook (31%) and Twitter (29%).

    Those from ethnic minority backgrounds are particularly likely to report believing conspiracy-related statements, according to researchers.

    Around 25% of people from an ethnic minority background believed the only reason a coronavirus vaccine is being developed is to make money for pharmaceutical companies, compared with 13% of white people.

    People from ethnic minorities were twice as likely (22%) as white people (11%) to report believing that some vaccines cause autism in healthy children.

    These concerns are reflected in the finding that people from ethnic minorities (15%) are half as likely as those from white ethnic groups (31%) to say they would like to be vaccinated immediately.

    Professor Bobby Duffy, director of the Policy Institute at King’s College London, said addressing this mix of “underlying beliefs, misleading information and harmful behaviour” was a challenge for public health.

    “While they might seem outlandish, conspiracy suspicions and beliefs are far from harmless speculation – especially in the midst of a deadly pandemic,” he said.

    “Our findings show that although conspiracy thinking is limited to a minority of the population, something which is important to emphasise, levels of belief are particularly high among certain groups, such as the vaccine-hesitant.

    “Addressing this mix of underlying beliefs, misleading information and harmful behaviour is a key public health challenge.”

    Some 27% of the population thought that the “real truth about coronavirus is being kept from the public” while 15% think politicians, scientists and journalists are actively collaborating to deceive the public.
    Amazing the numbers are so low.

    Here is a Telegram Channel where we germans share pictures and movies of areas in the world were people live normally and enjoy their live. To remind us how it was and should be again.
    It´s called Freiheitsbeweise = proof of freedom
    https://t.me/freiheitsbeweise
    I can't see this without joining Telegram, but I'd love to know what the list of countries is.

    Ecuador should be among them: masks are mandated, but in public fewer people are bothering now. There's no enforcement apart from [usually] when entering a store. Everything else is open, including all businesses and transport, and life feels all very normal.
    To name some (some cities and some countries):
    Sotschi, Tansania, Taiwan, Mostar (Bosnia Herzegowina), Odessa (Ukraine), Delhi, Rio de Janeiro, Zanzibar, Malbun (Lichtenstein), Hurghada, Lani Kai Island (Fort Myers Beach), Fuerte Ventura, Museum Auckland (Newsealand), UAE, Ras al Khaimah (Emirates), Jesalmer (India), Predeal (Romania), Italia, Adu Dhabi, Terneriffa, Brasilia, Kopaonik (Serbia), Mumbai and Goa (India), Dubai Emirates Mall, Sharm El Sheikh (Egypt), Mar del Plata (Argentina), Paraguay, Dominican Republic, Sweden, Pakistan.

    CDC and misinformation...

    Do people who have had Covid19 benefit from vaccination?
    Studies said "No"... CDC says "Yes" despite issue brought directly to their attention.

    CDC Investigation
    BY FULL MEASURE STAFF SUNDAY, JANUARY 31ST 2021


    Quote Full Measure After Hours
    By Sharyl Attkisson
    The companion podcast to the Sunday TV news program: "Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson." Original behind the scenes reflections off the news narrative.


    Today we begin with an investigation regarding the Covid-19 vaccine shortages. There are serious questions about an incorrect claim made by top scientists at CDC: the nation’s premiere public health institute. Critics call it misinformation. CDC chalks it up to an “honest mistake." Whatever it is, it resulted in vaccines going to some who are said to need it the least depriving others who are said to need it the most.

    Like a lot of Americans, Congressman Thomas Massie already had coronavirus and wanted to know if he should still get a Covid vaccine.

    Most everyone who’s had Covid-19 is considered immune. But how long immunity lasts is unknown—whether it’s after infection or vaccination.

    An award-winning scientist himself, Massie quickly found that vaccine studies showed no benefit to people who’ve had coronavirus. Vaccination didn’t change their odds of getting reinfected.

    The controversy began when Massie noticed the CDC was claiming the exact opposite.

    CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices had just issued a high profile report authored by 15 scientists. It wrongly claimed Pfizer’s study proved the vaccine is highly effective or showed “Consistent high efficacy” for people who’d already had coronavirus—“SARS-CoV-2.”

    Rep. Thomas Massie: It says the exact opposite of what the data says. They're giving people the impression that this vaccine will save your life, omr save you from suffering, even if you've already had the virus and recovered, which has not been demonstrated in either the Pfizer or the Moderna trial.

    i just saw a youtube video of a recent demonstration against the lockdown measures in my country (austria) - its kind of dystopian, it left an impression on me and i want to bring it to your attention. they call this kind of demonstrations "Hygiene march" - there were several in different cities in austria and germany.

    the group who organised this demonstration is known throughout the german-speaking world as #SchwarzWahrheit and wants to draw attention to the government's excessive coercive measures and make people think.

    see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3P-m0DmUgJM&t=07s



    deepL translation of what they are saying in the video (maybe not perfect):
    disinfection sluices in public facilities
    letting die alone is love of neighbor
    true freedom takes place in isolation
    thinking for yourself endangers the common good
    vaccination is love of neighbor
    avoid closeness forever
    sacrifice everything to hygiene
    separate from the endangerers
    protect the unborn - renounce their procreation
    betray your neighborhood
    rule breakers to the wall
    put dangerous people in solitary confinement
    compulsory masks for life
    disenfranchise vaccinators
    submit to normality
    outlaw mask deniers
    this is solidarity
    avoid contamination
    absolute sterility
    body contact creates suffering


    in german they are saying:
    desinfektionsschleusen in öffentlichen einrichtungen
    alleine sterben lassen ist nächstenliebe
    wahre freiheit findet in der isolation statt
    selber denken gefährdet das allgemeinwohl
    impfung ist nächstenliebe
    nähe vermeiden für immer
    opfert alles der hygiene
    trennt euch von den gefährdern
    schützt die ungeborenen - verzichtet auf ihre zeugung
    verratet eure nachbarschaft
    regelbrecher an die wand
    gefährder in die einzelhaft
    maskenpflicht ein leben lang
    impfgegner entrechten
    fügt euch der normalität
    maskenleugner ächten
    das ist solidarität
    kontaminierung vermeiden
    absolute keimfreiheit
    körperkontakt schafft leiden
