More proof that the Covid-19 Coronavirus leaked from a Chinese lab?

(weekend blog)

Since the start of the Chinese Coronavirus Covid-19 plague, this website has been trying to deal with a subject that no major media outlet will cover – whether the Covid-19 Coronavirus didn’t come from the Wuhan ‘wet market’ as the mainstream media claim but was accidentally leaked from the biosafety Level-4 lab at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. In particular, I’ve highlighted the work being done by Dr Peng Zhou who has been experimenting with various versions of Ebola, SARS and Coronavirus to understand how bats can carry these diseases without becoming infected themselves.

Here yet again is Dr Peng Zhou’s description of his project taken directly from the Wuhan Institute of Virology website:

“Taking bats as the research object, I will answer the molecular mechanism that can coexist with Ebola and SARS- associated coronavirus for a long time without causing disease, and its relationship with flight and longevity.”

By the way, a biosafety Level-4 lab is the highest security classification by the World Health Organisation and are used for diagnostic work and research on easily transmitted pathogens which can cause fatal disease. These include a number of viruses known to cause viral hemorrhagic fever such as Marburg virus, Ebola virus, Lassa virus, and Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever. Porton Down in the UK is a Level-4 lab.

However, the situation may be worse than I have previously described. Here’s an article from the Washington News suggesting that our lying, corrupt, disease-ridden Chinese friends may have been experimenting on bats and the Covid-19 Coronavirus at another research facility in Wuhan – the Wuhan Centre for Disease Control –  which is only a biosafety Level-2 institution. (A biosafety Level-2 lab is only slightly more hygienic than your local Chinese takeaway). The Wuhan Institute of Virology is about 3 miles from the Wuhan ‘wet market’, the Wuhan Centre for Disease Control is about 280 metres from the Wuhan ‘wet’market’.

(I should say that the Washington News is a mainly conservative newspaper with a small daily circulation of around 52,000 copies. The main Washington newspaper is the Washington Post with a daily circulation of over 350,000.)

Here in the UK, I have been feeding evidence to several journalists and publications that the Covid-19 Coronavirus was accidentally leaked from a Chinese government research lab. But for some reason, no journalist nor any mainstream media want to carry the story. Instead they’re all sticking with the official version that the virus came from the Wuhan ‘wet market’.

Anyway, here’s the link to the article. Judge for yourselves where the Covid-19 Coronavirus really originated:

I have a feeling that if you watch from about 16.40 minutes to 26.00 minutes of the video below, this may be the Chinese documentary about collection of over 2,000 bat viruses by the Wuhan Centre for Disease Control that the Washington News article refers to.

This documentary was, of course, made before the dirty, corrupt, disease-ridden Chinese accidentally released the Covid-19 plague on the world:

How many weeks before the rioting and looting start?

(Friday blog)

Government incompetence breaks the unwritten agreement with the people

Democratic government depends on an unwritten agreement. The people agree to obey laws and pay taxes in return for the government making a reasonable effort to provide basics like healthcare, education, national defence, utilities, roads etc etc.

At the start of the Chinese laboratory-produced Covid-19 plague, the British government seemed to be reasonably competent. People accepted the Prime Minister’s request for social distancing and the Chancellor appeared to be proactively dealing with the economic disaster caused by the country’s lockdown.

The looming problem now with the Chinese Covid-19 plague is that the public, generally speaking, have done what is asked of them and kept their side of the bargain. But people are becoming increasingly frustrated watching the complete shambles their leaders are making of managing the crisis. This will cause patience to run out very quickly.

Rioting and looting have already broken out in Southern Italy. In France, over 350,000 people have been fined for breaking the lockdown rules and the police don’t even dare go into some of the most vibrant, multi-culturally enriched suburbs of Paris, Lyon and Marseille. I suspect the same is true for many other European countries. And it won’t be long before some of the UK’s most deprived areas see the Government’s utter uselessness, question why they should have to suffer a lockdown being endlessly extended due to Government incompetence, have had enough and start to riot and loot.

What will the Government do? Relax restrictions? Or send in the army? Boris, you shouldn’t have sold off your water cannons. I think your Government’s incompetence, delays and blundering have caused such a loss of confidence that people will soon start taking the law into their own hands and tell the authorities to shove their social distancing somewhere where the sun doesn’t shine.

When will the (IMHO) useless, incompetent, worthless Yvonne Doyle be sacked?

Wednesday evening’s Downing Street press conference was pitiful. We had a virtually unknown government minister – Alok Sharma (who he?) – and a creature called Yvonne Doyle from an obscure public-sector bureaucracy called Public Health England (PHE) trying to explain away why the UK was doing less than 10% of the number of Covid-19 tests than were being done in some other countries.

Here’s the in my humble opinion (IMHO) utterly useless, incompetent and less than honest Ms Doyle at the press conference:

Yvonne Doyle is the medical director (or something like that) for PHE and with a reported salary of £257,500 a year is just one of the 242 PHE employees with six-figure salaries.

PHE seems to have been tasked by the government with organising Chinese Covid-19 plague testing and this has turned out to be a farce or a tragedy or even a fiasco.

What seems to have happened (I believe) is as follows: When given the job of organising the testing, PHE has tried to make a huge bureaucratic empire-building power grab. Instead of involving university labs and private-sector company labs in building testing capabilities, PHE appears to have made this PHE-only territory. PHE have then set about building a single large, centralised testing facility in Milton Keynes – basically every control-hungry bureaucrats’ wet dream.

Over two weeks ago, Britain’s universities provided the Department of Health with a list of their testing facilities and available staff. Many private companies did the same. But Yvonne Doyle and her over-paid, over-pensioned chums at PHE appear to have rejected all offers of help. They wanted (IMHO) to be in control of everything. Moreover, under PHE’s plans for centralised tests, it would take 24 to 48 hours for test results to be delivered whereas more smaller localised testing facilities could have delivered the results much faster.

PHE  also set up two sites for NHS employees to be tested and the tests to be sent for analysis in Milton Keynes – in IKEA Wembley and Chessington World of Adventures car park. But the PHE employees there started turning away any medical staff who didn’t have booked appointments and the correct signed paperwork. So the testers were left with virtually nothing to do while NHS staff wasted precious hours driving to and away from the testing centres which refused to test them:

The government has tried to explain away the testing catastrophe by claiming that they didn’t have sufficient reagent for the tests. But the UK chemical industry has said this was a lie. If the British chemical industry are telling the truth, this would suggest (IMHO) that Michael Gove and Alok Sharma are liars.

Basically, the whole thing has been a total bureaucratic cluster-f*ck. Faced with public fury and a tsunami of outraged criticism from the media, the Government has just realised what a total cluster-f*ck Yvonne Doyle and PHE have made of testing and yesterday did a complete reverse ferret by bypassing the incompetent, bureaucratic, power-grabbing assholes at PHE and inviting university and private-sector labs to assist with testing.

Yvonne Doyle and the other (IMHO) useless, incompetent, paper-shuffling scumbags at PHE should be fired. Having never done a real day’s work in their lives, they clearly couldn’t organise a proverbial piss-up in a brewery. But, of course, they won’t be fired. Instead they’ll probably all get gongs and seats in the Lords.

I wonder how many people have died because of the stunning incompetence of Yvonne Doyle and PHE?

However, professional parasitic bureaucrats like Yvonne Doyle and the other PHE bosses (in my humble opinion) don’t give a damn about how many deaths there are. All they care about are their own lousy careers and salaries and pensions.

We knew back in 2015 that China was developing a Coronavirus

(Wednesday/Thursday blog)

I’ll leave this up for a couple of days as it’s sort of important!!!!!!

China good! Trump bad!

First here’s an urgent message from the BBC:

“Everything China does is wonderful and all announcements from the Chinese authorities must be believed. Everything Trump does is bad and should be constantly ridiculed.”

Oh boy, the BBC really are enjoying themselves. Why? Because BBC reporters can constantly and gleefully announce that the US death numbers from Covid-19 have passed the Chinese death rate. At no time does the BBC ever mention that our Chinese friends have constantly lied about the Chinese Coronavirus plague, that our Chinese friends have tried to cover up their responsibility for the Chinese plague, that our Chinese friends tried to blame the USA for the virus, that Chinese figures may be more than suspect and that the number of Chinese dead is certainly way higher than the 3,000+ our Chinese friends claim and probably over 30,000.

Nope, the BBC are convinced that everything China says and does is good and everything Trump says and does is bad. More proof that it’s time to scrap the BBC

The Chinese virus programme exposed 5 years ago

Here’s a brief (about 2 minutes) clip from an Italian TV broadcast from November 2015. (No, this is not an April Fools joke!)

I’m afraid the broadcast is in Italian. The version on Youtube with English subtitles has mysteriously been removed. But here’s part of the transcription translated into English:

Chinese scientists have created a pulmonary supervirus from bats and mice only for study reasons but there are many questionable aspects to this. Is it worth the risk? It’s an experiment, of course, but it is worrisome. It worries many scientists: It is a group of Chinese researchers attaching a protein taken from bats to the SARS virus, Acute Pneumonia, derived from mice. The output is a super coronavirus that could affect man. It remains closed in laboratories and it is only for study purposes, but is it worth the risk – creating such a great threat only for examination purposes?

The debate about the risks of research is as old as science itself. Like the myth of Icarus, who plunged from the sky and perished in the sea, having gone too close to the sun with the wings of wax designed by his father!

Here is an experiment in China, in which a group of scientists has managed to develop a chimera – an organism modified by attaching the surface protein of a coronavirus found in bats of the common species called the Great Horseshoe Bat, to a virus that causes SARS in mice, although in a non-fatal form. It was suspected that the protein could make the chimeric hybrid organism suitable for affecting humans, and the experiment confirmed it.

It is precisely this molecule, called SHCO14, that allows the coronavirus to attach itself to our respiratory cells and to trigger the syndrome. According to researchers, the two organisms, the original and even more so the engineered one, can infect humans directly from bats, without going through an intermediate species like the mouse, and it is this eventuality that raises many controversies.

Just one year ago (remember this broadcast is from 2015), the U.S. government suspended research funding, which aimed to make viruses more contagious. The moratorium did not stop the work of the Chinese on SARS, which was already in advanced stages and looked relatively harmless.

According to a section of the scientific community, it is in fact not dangerous. The probability that the virus may pass to our species was insignificant compared to the benefits of the virus – an argument that many other experts rejected. First, because the relationship between risk and benefit is difficult to evaluate and second, because especially in these times, it is more prudent to not put into circulation an organism that can escape or be removed from the control of laboratories.

I rather doubt the sinophiliac BBC will be reporting this story.

Anyone really still believe that the Covid-19 Coronavirus came from the Wuhan wet market?

Or is it now blindingly obvious that the Coronavirus was accidentally leaked from the L-4 lab at the Wuhan Institute of Virology when a lab worker failed to go through the proper decontamination procedures after being in contact with infected bats’ blood, urine or faeces?


Correcting two recent Covid-19 mainstream media lies

(Tuesday blog)

Today I just wanted to correct two recent mainstream media lies about the Chinese Covid-19 plague.

Lie 1 – We should have joined the EU ventilator scheme

This lie has been widely reported in the Europhiliac, Brexit-hating media. The claim is that British lives will be lost because the UK didn’t join an EU scheme to buy ventilators. There are two reasons why this is total rubbish:

Reason 1 – Ventilator production capacity is already sold out

All ventilator production capacity is already sold out for at least the next year due to individual countries placing orders for ventilators. So it’s far from clear how the useless, self-serving, overpaid, over-pensioned EU bureaucrats are going to find factory space for the 100,000 to 200,00 ventilators which will be needed across Europe when the Chinese plague hits its peak. I suspect the great EU ventilator procurement scheme was just a pro-EU publicity stunt – the EU was desperate to be seen to be doing something – and will quietly be forgotten when the EU is unable to get any ventilators at all.

Reason 2 – Ventilators would have been a “common resource”

If the EU had managed to buy some ventilators, these would have been what the EU calls a “common resource”. This means that the ventilators would belong to all EU countries. So bureaucrats in Brussels would decide which countries to send them to. Given that the PIGS (Portugal, Italy, Greece and Spain) seem to be the countries worst affected by the Chinese Covid-19 plague, it’s more than certain that the first 10,000 to 20,000 ventilators would have been sent to the PIGS. So we would have seen ventilators made in Britain being sent abroad. This would have resulted in more deaths in the UK. By not being in the EU scheme, the UK Government can ensure that every ventilator made in Britain remains in Britain.

When I tried to point this out by commenting on the Times website, my comment was deleted for supposedly “breaching community guidelines”. I guess we live in an age in which the truth is seen as dangerous by those in power over us.

Lie 2 – Evil Tory austerity means we have too few hospital beds

It’s absolutely true that we have disgracefully fewer hospital beds per 100,000 of the population than almost every other EU country:

But it wasn’t evil Tory austerity that caused the shameful shortage of hospital beds. The biggest cuts in the number of hospital beds occurred between 1997 and 2007 – the ten years of Lord Anthony Blair’s New Labour:

Even worse, while Blair’s New Labour were slashing the number of hospital beds, they were hugely increasing the number of managers in the NHS from around 25,000 in 1997 to over 40,000 by 2007. The result of this was a ludicrous drop in hospital beds per manager:

Under New Labour’s bed cuts while increasing the number of managers, the NHS went from around 8 beds per manager in 1997 (when New Labour first came to power) to fewer than 4 beds per manager by the time New Labour lost to the Tory/LibDem coalition. Since then, the number of managers in the NHS has declined slightly from about 40,000 to somewhere around 37,000.

What seems incredible to me is that we don’t have a single mainstream-media journalist capable of telling the truth and exposing the above two lies.

America created the Coronavirus just as America killed over 4,000 Americans on 9/11

(Monday blog – 2)

And here are more words of wisdom from our friends from the world’s most enlightened religion.

Dr. Taha Al-Mutawakkil, the Houthi Minister of Public Health in Yemen, said in a Friday, March 20, 2020 sermon that aired on Al-Eman TV (Yemen) that the world should ask who and what is behind the COVID-19 pandemic. He said that America is a country capable of massacring the whole world, as well as its own citizens, and he claimed that America had killed 4,000 of its own citizens on 9/11. He then chanted the Houthi slogan with the audience: “Allah Akbar! Death to America! Death to Israel! Curse be upon the Jews! Victory to Islam!”

Having non-Muslims as friends is more dangerous than the Coronavirus

(Monday blog – 1)

I just wanted to remind readers that having non-Muslims as friends is more dangerous than the Coronavirus according to Canadian Imam Younus Kathrada.

However, on a more positive note, unlike many other learned scholars from our favourite religion, Younus Kathrada does accept that Jews and Christians are human beings and that there is no need to kill them whenever you find them. So I guess we should be pleased about that. Clearly Younus is a very enlightened Izlumic preacher:

Will you be one of the lucky ones to get a ventilator?

(weekend blog)

I suppose I should start by paraphrasing Dickens’s Mr Micawber: “10,000 serious cases of Covid-19, 12,000 ventilators – result happiness. 12,000 serious cases of Covid-19, 10,000 ventilators – result misery”.

There seem to be a few things becoming clear about Covid-19:

  • The figures for numbers of cases in each country are worthless as they depend on testing policies and thus the amount of testing being done. Obviously, the more people a country tests, the more cases it will find
  • 90% or more of people catching the Coronavirus will only experience mild symptoms
  • In a ‘normal’ flu season there will be about 110 deaths a day in the UK from the flu. We should always bear this figure in mind when the media reports the number of Covid-19 deaths each day
  • It’s the 5% to 10% who have serious Covid-19 symptoms who will overwhelm our healthcare systems causing chaos and unnecessary deaths

Here’s a brief (5 minutes) video from Spain.

It seems that in Madrid, older people (over 65) are not being given a ventilator and the chance to live as the few ventilators hospitals have are being reserved for younger Covid-19 sufferers.

Older people (those over 65) are just being sedated and allowed to die.

Though from what little I understand, even those who do get a ventilator will often suffer permanent organ damage which will leave them crippled for the rest of their lives.

It’s possible that serious Covid-19 cases in London will next week overwhelm NHS ventilator capacity. Other areas of the UK have about another couple of weeks to prepare for an expected surge in serious Covid-19 cases.

Here’s what is happening in Madrid and probably many areas of Spain and Italy.

This is what the UK Government is desperately trying to avoid happening here:

(apologies, the original 5-minute video in which the doctor goes on to accuse Spanish politicians of incompetence and genocide and demands they give up their salaries to provide money to buy more ventilators has been removed from YouTube – no doubt on the orders of Spanish politicians and healthcare bosses. So, here’s a shorter version which has so far managed to avoid being censored)


Are the experts doing a “reverse ferret”?

(Friday blog – Chinese plague day 30)

Firstly, I hope you all watched the film “Contagion” on TV2 yesterday evening at 21.00h. If you didn’t see it, the film was about a virus which originated in China when a bat infected a pig and then quickly spread around the world from people travelling. The virus led to many deaths from respiratory failure and encephalitis. The announcer on TV2 referred to the film as being “science fiction”. But the events of the film and what is now happening with the Chinese Covid-19 plague are remarkably similar. If you didn’t see “Contagion”, I strongly advise you try to.

Are the experts doing a “reverse ferret”?

A reverse ferret is a phrase used predominantly within the British media to describe a sudden reversal in an organisation’s editorial or political line on a certain issue. Generally, this will involve no acknowledgement of the previous position

From what I understand, much of the British Government’s policy for dealing with the Chinese plague has been informed by a group at Imperial College London. (But Imperial College, please don’t sue me if I’m wrong with what I write below as I’m just an ignorant, insignificant, crazed blogger)

The first announcement from this group was that Covid-19 was: ‘the most serious public health threat seen in a respiratory virus since the 1918 Spanish flu, which is estimated to have killed at least 50 million people worldwide’.

In the early stages of the Chinese Covid-19 plague, the Government was warned that UK deaths would be 510,000 if the virus went unchecked …but would lower to 250,000 if the UK implemented mitigation strategies.

Then by March 16, Imperial College announced that the Government’s new coronavirus strategy – a total lockdown – could cut UK deaths from Covid-19 to “a few thousands or tens of thousands” through to the autumn. One of the Imperial College team suggested the figure of 20,000 – slightly higher than the 17,000 deaths on average from the flu over the last five years.

Downgrading the Chinese plague?

But you probably knew all that already. What you might not have known was that, just as the UK Government was implementing the lockdown and crashing our economy, it also downgraded the seriousness of the threat posed by the Chinese Wuhan plague.

As of 19 March 2020, COVID-19 is no longer considered to be a High Consequence Infectious Disease (HCID) in the UK. The 4 nations public health HCID group made an interim recommendation in January 2020 to classify COVID-19 as an HCID. This advice was changed a week ago when the Government downgraded the Chinese plague from being a HCID.

Here’s a link to the official Government website:

In the UK, a HCID is defined according to the following criteria:

  • acute infectious disease
  • typically has a high case-fatality rate
  • may not have effective prophylaxis or treatment
  • often difficult to recognise and detect rapidly
  • ability to spread in the community and within healthcare settings
  • requires an enhanced individual, population and system response to ensure it is managed effectively, efficiently and safely

As far as I’m aware, none of the mainstream media have reported this positive development. Why not? Because it doesn’t fit into their “we’re all going to die shock horror” narrative? The last thing the media wants is some good news.

All this asks the question whether a better strategy would have been to isolate all those over 65 and all those who had comorbidities making them vulnerable to the Chinese plague, but to have let the rest of the economy continue as normal allowing infections to build herd immunity? However, with the media – particularly the UK-hating BBC, UK-loathing C4 News and (IMHO) shouty idiots like Piers Moron – screaming for action, I can understand why the Government felt pushed into drastic action – crashing the economy – which may lead to the cure being worse than the disease.

Will it all be over by the summer?

In their desperate attempts to further their own lousy careers, many in the media are claiming that the lockdown will have to last 12 months or 18 months or whatever figure they can think of. But with 80% or more of infections being mild and with a likely medical treatment being probably less than a month away, it could be the case that restrictions of movement and economic activity can gradually be lifted within weeks rather than months.

From the little I understand, the Chinese plague is a bioengineered variant of a coronavirus blended with some parts of HIV (courtesy of the Wuhan Institute of Virology) and so a cocktail of anti-virals and anti-HIV drugs may cure most serious cases?

I hope you haven’t forgotten Saint Greta

One person who has been seriously affected by the Chinese Wuhan plague is none other than the world’s greatest scientist and climatologist – Saint Greta the Gormless. Suddenly, after being the centre of world media attention with her fake claims of imminent climate catastrophe, a real problem (the Chinese plague) has caused media attention to move on. This has left Saint Greta the psychologically disturbed suffering from acute Media Attention Deprivation syndrome (MAD).

Desperate to be the centre of attention again, Saint Greta the Crazy has popped up to claim that she has had the Chinese Wuhan plague. But my understanding is that it has been a particularly cold winter in Sweden this year (in spite of Saint Greta’s warning of the Earth being on fire) and so Saint Greta probably had a bit of a cold.

Covid-19 is a “soldier of Allah” sent to smite us infidels and unbelievers!

(Thursday blog)

It would clearly be discriminatory and waaccciiissst of me to only give limited opinions about the Chinese Covid-19 plague seen from Westerners’ point of view.

So for balance, here are some of the greatest brains from the Religion of Total Craziness (sorry, I meant ‘Religion of Wonderful Peacefulness’) explaining the real origins of the Chinese plague:

Totally crazy?

Gazan Imam Jamil Al-Mutawa claimed that the coronavirus is a “soldier of Allah” that has harmed Western countries while sparing Palestinians and Muslims.

“Look how anyone who schemes against the Al-Aqsa Mosque is being shattered to smithereens… This is the greatness of Allah!” he is heard saying, praying that God will continue unleashing the virus against those behind the US administration’s Israeli-Palestinian peace plan, dubbed by Trump as the “deal of the century.”

The sermon at the White Mosque in Gaza, broadcast by the Hamas-affiliated Al-Aqsa TV, came a day before the first two cases were confirmed in the Gaza Strip. Since then there have been at least 59 cases of the virus in the Palestinian-ruled areas of the West Bank.

And one of the hardest-hit countries in the world, Iran, is Muslim. But Iran is Shiite and this crazy is a Sunni. So this crazy is happy about the “soldier of Allah” smiting the Iranians too.

Even more totally crazier?

Faisal Al-Khozae, a Jordanian expert on international law, said in a March 16 2020 interview on A-ONE TV (Jordan) that he tends to agree with the conspiracy theories that COVID-19 is a man-made biological weapon. Claiming that the U.S. selected China to be the country from which the coronavirus would start spreading, he said that the United States has 12 highly advanced laboratories that have been producing viruses like COVID-19, SARS, AIDS, swine flu and anthrax for 20 years.

The craziest of them all?

And now for the real craziest of crazies.

On March 22, 2020, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei delivered a 40-minute-long speech, which aired on Channel 1 (Iran) and posted on Khamenei’s website. The Iranian leader said that America is Iran’s most evil enemy and that top American officials are charlatans, greedy, insolent liars, and merciless terrorists. He said that America’s offers to help Iran with treatment and medicine are strange because America itself has equipment shortages, and he elaborated that no Iranian would accept these offers anyway because America has been accused of manufacturing and spreading COVID-19.

Khamenei said that he does not know if these accusations are true, but that if they are, American medicine might be a means to further spread the disease in Iran and the American doctors who would come to Iran might do so in order to gather more information about the behavior of the virus in order to increase America’s hostility towards Iran. In addition, he referred to a theory that strains of COVID-19 were produced specifically to target Iran using information gathered about Iranian genetics.

Every cloud – silver lining

With the behaviour of the crazies and their scientifically-challenged leaders, one silver lining from the Chinese plague cloud may be a lot fewer crazies in this world and thus a huge improvement in the quality of the human gene pool.

For example, here are some Indian ladies from the Religion of Scientific Enlightenment explaining why they will not be isolating themselves but instead will congregate in large groups because Allah will protect them:

Epidemiologists, climatologists and filthy, disease-ridden Chinese?

(Wednesday blog)

Still on about the Chinese plague, I’m afraid.

Is this much worse than the flu?

There has been much talk of more people dying each year from ordinary flu than from the Chinese Covid-19 plague. On average 17,000 people have died from the flu in England annually between 2014/15 and 2018/19. However, the yearly deaths vary widely from a high of 28,330 in 2014/15 to a low of 1,692 in 2018/19. This equates to about 110 flu-related deaths a day during the flu season. In comparison, only about 430 people in the UK so far have died from the Chinese Covid-19 plague.

Now let’s do some simple arithmetic for the Chinese Covid-19 plague. Let’s assume that around 20 million of us get the Chinese virus – that’s about 28% of the population. Then let’s assume that only 3% need hospitalisation and treatment in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) – that’s 600,000 people. (These numbers are lower than those suggested by Britain’s leading epidemiologists).

ICU treats patients whose lives are at risk or whose organs have failed. Severe Covid-19 leads mostly to lung failure. But it also causes kidney and cardiovascular (heart and blood vessel) failure. All these are rapidly fatal without intense and prompt treatments only available in ICU. In simple terms, treatments include a ventilator taking over the patient’s breathing while the patient is anaesthetised (placed in an induced coma), a dialysis machine cleaning the blood and drugs or machines supporting the heart and blood pressure. The reality of care is, of course, considerably more complex and highly intensive.

But we only have about 4,000 ICU beds and only sufficient trained staff for those 4,000 ICU beds. Typically a Covid-19 sufferer with serious symptoms will be in an ICU bed for about 8 days. So, if the Chinese Covid-19 plague affects us for say 5 months (150 days), each ICU bed will be able to accommodate around twenty patients. Remember this is assuming there are no strokes, heart attacks, cancers, road accidents or other conditions which require ICU treatment.

So, with 4,000 ICU beds and twenty patients per bed over the five months, maybe 80,000 Covid-19 patients at most will get ICU care. The other 520,000 who require ICU care can’t have it. And the figure who can’t have the necessary ICU treatment will actually be much higher as some ICU beds will be needed for people with other life-threatening conditions.

It’s therefore not inconceivable that deaths from the Chinese Covid-19 plague could easily be over 500,000. That’s rather more than the 17,000 or so flu deaths each year. Even if the NHS manages to double or triple the number of ICU beds and trained staff, we will still have tens of thousands of Covid-19 patients suffocating to death in makeshift hospitals in exhibition centres and sports halls.

That’s what terrifies the politicians.

Epidemiologists and climatologists

But can we trust the epidemiologists’ models of projected infection rates? After all, supposed ‘scientists’ have been totally discredited by the shameless data-fiddling, model-manipulation and outright lies of the world’s grant-hungry and media-attention-hungry climatologists.

Moreover, we were told that BSE would be a health disaster. In the UK over four million healthy cattle were slaughtered and burnt yet only 177 people died after contracting variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) through eating infected beef. And there were SARS, Swine flu and Avian Flu. All were bigged up by the ‘experts’ and the media as going to cause huge health crises. Yet only 774 people worldwide died from SARS. I think there were only a couple of SARS deaths in the UK.

It does seem that ‘scientists’ will always play safe and conjure up the absolute worst-case scenarios in order to protect their own reputation and make themselves feel important. After all, it would be disastrous to a scientist’s career if they said that Covid-19 was no big deal and they turned out to be wrong. Much better to play Dr Doom to terrify politicians into drastic action and then claim credit (and lots more lucrative grants and a few gongs or even a comfy seat in the Lords) when things turn out not to have been as bad as was predicted.

But even assuming massive exaggeration by our often self-serving, highly-politicised, attention-seeking scientists, as Italy and Spain report hundreds of Covid-19 deaths a day, it really does seem that this time the scientists crying “wolf” may be worth listening to.

Dirty, filthy, corrupt, disease-ridden Chinese?

I firmly believe that the real source of the current Chinese Covid-19 was an accidental leak from Dr Peng Zhou’s L-4 laboratory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. This is the lab where Dr Peng Zhou studies how bats can carry various (bioengineered?) versions of Ebola, Sars and Coronavirus without becoming infected themselves. Remember, here’s Dr Zhou’s description of his own work taken, not from some conspiracy theory crazy blogger, but from the official Wuhan Institute of Virology website:

“Taking bats as the research object, I will answer the molecular mechanism that can coexist with Ebola and SARS- associated coronavirus for a long time without causing disease, and its relationship with flight and longevity.”

Furthermore, I believe that the cause of the leak was a lab worker being infected by bats’ blood, urine or faeces and then not following the prescribed decontamination procedures probably because they were in a hurry to get home that day.

Though, of course, all the experts are desperately claiming that the Covid-19 virus couldn’t possibly be bioengineered and couldn’t possibly have come from a lab because that would cause public outrage against anyone doing virus research. Therefore the scientists are circling the wagons and claiming the Covid-19 outbreak must have come from the Wuhan ‘wet market’.

Supporting the idea of the virus coming from the ‘wet market, if anyone was in any doubt about the disgusting eating habits of the dirty, filthy, corrupt, disease-ridden Chinese, here’s something to put you off your corn flakes:
