  1. Well the video presenters seem to be asserting that they've found graphine compounds in the Cansino, Pfizer, Astrazeneca, Sinopharm and Sputnik vaccines. If we are to entertain that is a nefarious act by the vaccine makers, then we're looking at a global conspiracy involving the Western world, Russia and China. Seriously? I don't think so.
  2. Wot!! I have never said anything about MERS or SARS coming from a lab - quite the opposite in fact. Regarding the links you provided, the WHO investigation into the origins of sars-cov-2 was recognised as being compromised a long time ago. https://www.bmj.com/content/375/bmj.n2414 I'll be happy to change my mind if solid evidence is found but for now I think the virus is far more likely to be a lab product than zoonotic. OK, so you think Dr Geert Vanden Bossche is wrong. I trust that this has nothing to do with the fact that he is an opponent of mass vaccination against sars-cov-2 ? $$$$$ https://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?/topic/242348-covid-is-there-trouble-ahead-new-mutation-and-travel-bans/&do=findComment&comment=1103804754
  3. I think there may be a problem with your idea. If you do arrange for a properly infectious party, you will not be able to control your viral load and that *might* have bad consequences. I'm pretty relaxed about getting omicron (it's inevitable) but I don't want to get a heavy load of any derivative of the Wuhan lab virus. Even if I was in my twenties I wouldn't do it. https://voiceforscienceandsolidarity.substack.com/p/the-way-out
  4. Your fondness for anecdotal 'evidence' has been noted here before. I heard about it from a guy in a pub ... 🙄
  5. Only a few days ago, I received a phone call on my mobile from an NHS representative to enquire if I would get my booster. I declined. I was asked why. The conversation was polite but it was clear that I was being contacted for non-compliance. https://www.ft.com/content/b809c6e5-baa5-43d2-b666-6067d90ad3ed Can our leaders admit that they've invested in something that's probably a bad idea?
  6. The acid test will be China. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/covid-19-coronavirus-omicron-chinas-covid-zero-policy-is-floundering-against-omicron/SBZ67J64QZHQX352NE6D2ISYH4/ https://spectator.com.au/2022/01/chinas-zero-covid-policy-is-becoming-unsustainable/
  7. That's unreasonable to the level of being unhinged. Please moderate your language.
  8. So your big pharma employer has already prepared the way for the next "Operation Warp Speed"? That's quite a bold assertion. Thanks for letting us know.
  9. A quite interesting macroeconomic analysis from article from eurasiagroup: https://www.eurasiagroup.net/live-post/top-risks-2022-1-No-zero-Covid Their thesis is that the Chinese zero-Covid lockdown strategy will create global economic problems when Omicron or other highly infectious strains start breaking out across China.
  10. Wow. Just before 6th January. Stay the f*** away from these 'direct action' idiots. Nothing good will come from this.
  11. I'm not sure why you would say it's "brain vomit". The evidence coming in suggests that's exactly what it is (for now.) That's the way humans have responded to viral outbreaks since the dawn of humanity - long before vaccines were a thing. Perhaps there'll be another significant mutation down the road; in fact if we try mass vaccinations with a new vaccine that targets Omicron, that's pretty much guaranteed.
  12. On 8th December, Stephen Kissler was hypothesizing that Omicron didn't affect South Africa so badly because many South Africans had recently been infected with Delta and had acquired some immunity to Omicron. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caryWC6JAkc The problem is that theory isn't panning out. Delta infection does not protect against Omicron. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYLbJ0H8zdc More commentary here: https://alexberenson.substack.com/p/remember-how-they-said-omicron-wasnt "Omicron is less dangerous if you’ve been infected before, and less dangerous if you haven’t. It’s less dangerous if you’re fat, and less dangerous if you’re thin. It’s less dangerous if you’re old, less dangerous if you’re middle-aged, and less dangerous (as in probably so not-dangerous its dangers can’t even be measured) if you’re young. It’s a cold. The only risk it represents is that our massive testing infrastructure is now disrupting society. If we made everyone with a cold test and quarantine during the winter, we’d have lots of unnecessary economic, educational, and medical pain too." "Still not the flu." The Wuhan SARS-CoV-2 virus from 2019 is not the same as Omicron. We should be re-evaluating what we're dealing with now - not what happened a year or so ago. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/dec/28/omicron-is-not-the-same-disease-as-earlier-covid-waves-says-uk-scientist
  13. There's more to it than masks. UK national borrowing for covid is estimated at £4,700 to £6,067 per person depending upon who estimate you use. ( https://commonslibrary.parliament.uk/research-briefings/cbp-9309/ ) Millions of routine healthcare processes have been missed resulting in a backlog and avoidable deaths. ( https://www.health.org.uk/news-and-comment/charts-and-infographics/elective-care-how-has-covid-19-affected-the-waiting-list ) We're going to be impacted for years and need to choose what we do next carefully.
  14. Well there's at least one viroligist that says that. https://voiceforscienceandsolidarity.substack.com/p/second-call-to-who-please-dont-vaccinate
  15. Why do you think it's misinformation? The current data suggests Omicron behaves like a cold. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/dec/28/omicron-is-not-the-same-disease-as-earlier-covid-waves-says-uk-scientist If the data changes, we should reassess what we're doing.
  16. The direction of the mutation is quite straightforward. It's a cold. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/dec/28/omicron-is-not-the-same-disease-as-earlier-covid-waves-says-uk-scientist
  17. "But if TOTAL admissions over the same period were 5,000. Who cares, it doesn't shift the dial on overall admissions." That's the point I was making when I referenced https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/healthcare I agree overall admission rates are nothing special, so far, which raises the question of what Monsieur's graph signifies.
  18. I think this graph comes from: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10351519/Ministers-ruled-regional-lockdowns-tackle-Omicron-Covid-variant.html I cannot be 100% sure but the data in the graph appears to be the third and fourth column from "Table 11. Unadjusted rates of COVID-19 infection, hospitalisation and death in vaccinated and unvaccinated populations" on page 40 from: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1043608/Vaccine_surveillance_report_-_week_51.pdf Ostensibly, it's quite an impressive graph - showing an admission rate between six to eight times higher for the unvaccinated over 60s. So are these higher rates of admissions caused by covid? Otherwise, what is the point of the comparison? If we look at historical hospital admissions data at https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/healthcare there's nothing special happening (yet.) If admissions of six to eight times higher in over 60s are caused by covid, wouldn't we expect to see the hospital admissions rise like a rocket? There's something about this that looks a bit hinky to me. The next illustration in the same Daily Mail article, titled "How Patient Numbers Plummeted", shows that overall hospitalisations are significantly down from last year: I think there's some missing context to Monsieur's graph but I'm not sure what it is.
  19. The issue isn't economics or logistics (although jabbing the planet is a non-trivial undertaking.) the question is whether all this monkeying around with our immune system is wise unless you are immunocompromised or otherwise vulnerable. Some immunologists think the vaccines are protecting us against the wrong thing (Wuhan spike protein) and risk suppressing the innate immune system. There's also a concern about mass vaccinations creating new escape variants that might be dangerous. I don't think there's a simple answer. https://voiceforscienceandsolidarity.substack.com/p/continued-mass-vaccination-will-only https://voiceforscienceandsolidarity.substack.com/p/the-way-out
  20. South Africa jubilant as Omicron wave subsides rapidly with minimal Covid hospital admissions and Delta killed off: ‘Expect the same in other countries’ https://www.cityam.com/south-africa-jubilant-as-omicron-wave-subsides-as-quickly-as-it-came-with-minimal-hospital-admissions-and-deadly-delta-killed-off/
  21. A laughter emoji following an assertion about 150 deaths a day. How charming.
  22. That's a contradiction. If the vaccines conferred immunity, there would be no transmission. These vaccines are non-sterlising i.e. they don't stop viral replication. The vaccine can reduce the odds of (1) catching the virus and the (2) severity of the illness. Issue (1) depends upon how recently the vaccination took place. After about four months, the protection wanes which is why there is an expiry date on the vaccine status mobile phone applications. Issue (2) is very up in the air w.r.t. Omicron. It may be that Omicron is so weak, it doesn't matter for most healthy people. Mass vaccination with a non-sterlising vaccine in the middle of a pandemic will likely breed more variants. https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0250780
  23. Yes, it's a bit sinister. The Minister asserts 'The mood in the country is hardening' but is there any evidence for that? I've heard of anti-lockdown protests but no anti-unvaxxed protests. The Daily Mail has just parroted the government's position which is disappointing.
