IN CASE you missed Ivor Cummins’s hatchet job on the now infamous November 3 Witless and Unbalanced press conference that preceded and ‘justified’ the current lockdown imposed on us, we are for ease of access showing it here.
It’s well worth 25 minutes of your time if only to understand the level of fraud perpetrated on us and to have a point by point breakdown, graph by graph, of the Government’s ‘unscience’, ignorance and judgement failure in depending on men who Cummins has coined the ‘merchants of modelling madness’. Though there are no excess deaths from the recent ‘surge’, the Government still propagates deceit and fear about Covid by alleging that its course will be different from normal trends of second phase viruses in autumn. Cummins shows it is not and will not be.
If you still have ‘true believers’ amongst your family and friends, maybe risk the row and suggest they watch it. Here are some of his key points:
1. Contrary to the Witless and Unbalanced claims that ‘the efforts of people’ kept the virus down over the summer, no, it wasn’t that. It was seasonality and a reflection of how viruses operate. (There were no spikes as a result of people piling into the West Country by the millions.)
2. Come the winter this virus will rise but not to epidemic level and not with the same mortality impact that was threatened. Why? Seasonality.
3. The lower R rate is not due to social distancing but to seasonality.
4. Sweden is getting a rise this autumn but lower than here.
5. In fact far from rising everywhere, this autumn surge is already flattening everywhere and no, we are not seeing excess mortality – there is nothing unusual.
6. The numbers will notexceed the previous peak. Every winter sees an increase in respiratory viruses and pressure on hospitals but we never lock down for it.
7. The real scandal is that the summer period of low pressure was squandered by the NHS and Trusts when they did nothing to manage or reform capacity issues.
8. The ‘pressure on hospitals’ graphs shown by Witless and Unbalanced was based on cherry picked hospitals and amounted to ‘a fraud used to terrorise the nation’.
9. On their now infamous worst case scenario claim of a potential death rate twice as bad as before: no virus in history after passing the epidemic phase has ever ‘mustered’ such a second big hit, as the usual modellers W and U drew on should know.
10. Lockdown policies have not just not delivered anything in terms of reducing Covid mortality impact – there is no relationship between lockdown and deaths per million across 50 countries. Furthermore two new research reports show that they may cost more in Covid deaths – the result of attempts to suppress the virus and above and beyondlockdown’s other collateral death toll, from cancer and suicide and so on.
