The official total is meaningless since anyone who died of literally anything was recorded as a Covid death.
The issue is that pretty much the whole world locked down in the expectation that a vaccine would be become available even though one had never been developed before.

It's not meaningless. From memory it includes anyone who died within 4 weeks of receiving a positive Covid diagnosis. Not just anything! For sure some would have died anyway, especially the very elderly and infirm, whilst others will have died without Covid being diagnosed. It's imperfect, but as a standard it enabled trends to be measured.

It's also untrue that no vaccine had been developed. For this virus, no, but the technology, whilst new, had been under development for some years and there was a great deal of confidence that it could be used for this, provided sufficient resource was devoted to it. So it proved.

There were no guarantees, but there was a great deal more than just blind hope. With so many research projects being funded, and developed at speed, this was the global economy showing itself at it's best.

Not that that won't stop people blaming the "elites", the "New World Order", globalism and/or the WEF for forcing the lockdowns.

Covid tests were carried out post-mortem, the four week thing is incorrect.

Remember the average male life expectancy increased for those who had covid.

Numbers can be made to do anything depending on the spin.

Thousands who died with covid would have died anyway so covid was not the cause of death etc etc.

 


Responsibility Deficit Disorder is a medical condition. Symptoms include inability to be corrected when wrong, false sense of superiority, desire to share personal info no else cares about, general hubris. It's a medical issue rather than pure arrogance.

Since the total included people who died in traffic accidents or of anything else after a Covid diagnosis it is meaningless.
Developed at speed? The fastest a vaccine had ever been produced previously was four years. How would the global economy have looked if this one had taken that long?

Of course we were in uncharted waters! This virus was new but appeared virulent and very unlike SARS which had been successfully contained. No plan existed to deal with this. It had to be created "on the hoof". The "200,000" deaths was what was stated in the interview. So was from memory. I just looked it up. The official statistics say there have been 212,296.

We all know, accept and regret, that the impact of lockdowns on our health services will mean deaths than would have been avoided without them. It's not though the issue.

The issue is whether there would have been more deaths overall if we had not had lockdowns. Just as whether the overall financial costs would have been higher, or lower, with or without and, if lower, whether that cost saving was worth a higher number of deaths.

These are almost impossible questions when they need to be answered at the start of a crisis, with no useful experience to guide you, and need to be made very quickly.

When faced with lose, lose choices you have to choose the least worse.

I criticise those who think they know better, on every subject under the sun, than experts and those who have access to expert advice, They truly are know it alls. I frequently find myself defending expert opinion on here, and then get accused of defending the establishment. I am not interested in the establishment. I do though prefer genuine knowledge to bs.


Of course there was a pandemic plan in place - the Government model these scenarios - and it did not include lockdown.

I know you like to think you are always right but on this point you are incorrect.

If you think that over 200000 people in the UK died specifically from Covid then there really is no point in discussing this matter with you.

I was not worried about the lockdowns but I was worried about the forced and coerced untested vaccines and side effects of those on people who did not want nor need them! The fallout from that is I fear greater on the health of people and especially the younger generation.

And also the unnecessary wearing of masks! Especially by the virtue signallers.

An odd thing to say. Why would you be concerned about others wearing a mask, at best they are preventing spreading their germs to you, at worse it's ineffective so, so what.

Untrue:-

These vaccines were based on recently developed technology which then had a huge resource thrown at it. So whilst previous vaccines did take years to develop these were fast tracked at every stage. They still had to satisfy the regulatory authorities though, prior to release. Without this the global economy would have been in an even bigger mess than it is.

There were no untested vaccines. The efficacy of the underlying principles was well tested and understood, and all the vaccines were trialled in various places across the world. Now we have real use data to back up the original data.

I don't doubt there was a plan in place but one which took account of a variety of scenarios, with a variety of responses. Not every pandemic is the same. Sars was a minor event compared to Covid. So we needed to react to deal with the actual problem, and not with one on paper.

All I know is that I managed to catch Covid in mid November and frankly still not right. Very strangely up and down. Can be alright for a day or two - then back again.

.

A couple of my friends are reporting similar things. One though has a cancer and is on chemotherapy so attributes that as the cause.

This virus is providing to be a very stubborn beast.
