This post makes the case for 'herd immunity', which generally has not been taken seriously except for Sweden and about eight US states that didn't go into lock-down (see the April 22 video post below). This makes for a very interesting story that I wish to pursue over the next few weeks. Stay posted.
I will continue this post as I have more information to add, including updated numbers, messages and video links on the virus controversy.
Please copy the link to this post and send to as many that might wish to see it.
The 'Tech Giants' don't care for the truth being disclosed to the public, which is why so many of these videos have been taken down. It's a shame that censorship and their disinformation of lies have been allowed to take over Western culture. Follow the money and power to see where this is leading.
Fear is their mantra. Their cause is nefarious. Tyranny is their objective. Does this sound paranoid?
I wish it was, but it has become too obvious to deny lately. In my opinion; not a conspiracy theory anymore, just a conspiracy.

Another very important open letter challenging the government of British Columbia
Open Letter to Dr. Bonnie Henry from Dr. Stephen Malthouse
OCTOBER 15, 2020 BY VACCINE CHOICE CANADA
Stephen Malthouse, MD
Denman Island, BC V0R 1T0
Dr Bonnie Henry,
British Columbia Provincial Health Officer,
Ministry of Health,
1515 Blanshard Street,
Victoria, BC V8W 3C9
Dear Dr Henry,
I am a physician who has been in family medical practice in BC for more than 40 years and a member of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC since 1978.
I am writing this letter with the hope that you will be able to clarify the basis of your decision-making that has led our provincial government, health ministry, regional health officers, hospitals, medical staff, WorkSafe BC, businesses, and everyday citizens to follow pandemic policies that do not appear based on high-quality scientific research and, in fact, appear to be doing everyone a great deal of harm.1
The early intent of mitigation measures to “flatten the curve”, when we knew very little about SARS-CoV-2, its mode of transmission, and the severity of COVID-19, was reasonable. I believe that most physicians in Canada, myself included, whether active or retired, prepared themselves to take part on the front lines for the expected COVID-19 tsunami. Very soon it was apparent that the expected overwhelming of the hospital system was not going to occur, and now BC physicians have questions about the appropriateness of your public health policies.
The epidemiological evidence clearly shows that the “pandemic” is over and no second wave will follow. The evidence has been available for at least 4-5 months and is irrefutable.2-4 Yet, in spite of this substantial body of research, your office is perpetuating the narrative that a pandemic still exists and a second wave is expected. This false story is being used to justify public health policies that appear to have no health benefits, have already caused considerable harm, and threaten to create more harm in the future.
As you are aware, Sweden took an entirely different approach and, as of mid-September, their infection rate reached an all-time low and Covid-19 related deaths were at zero; 22 of 31 European countries, most of which enacted strict lockdowns, had higher infection rates. Sweden has also largely escaped the financial ruin and catastrophic mental health problems experienced in other countries, including Canada and the U.S.A.
Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg, Montréal’s medical officer, has stated: this COVID virus is much like the seasonal flu”. A group of over 400 Belgian doctors have stated: COVID is not a killer virus, but a treatable condition”. Eighteen Canadian doctors wrote the Ontario Premier, Doug Ford, stating “your policies risk significantly harming our children with lifelong consequences”. The Ontario policies are very similar to those of British Columbia.
In 2011, a review of the literature by the British Columbia Centres for Disease Control that sought to evaluate the effectiveness of social distancing measures such as school closures, travel restrictions, and limitations on mass gatherings as a means to address an influenza pandemic concluded that “such drastic restrictions are not economically feasible and are predicted to delay viral spread, but not impact overall mortality”. [Italics added]
Specifically, there appears to be no scientific or medical evidence for5-6
Self-isolation of asymptomatic people
arbitrary closure of businesses
closure of schools, daycares, park amenities, and playgrounds
the discontinuance of access to education, medical, dental, chiropractic, naturopathic, hearing, dietary, therapeutic, and other support for the physically and mentally disabled, particularly special needs children with neurological disorders
the closing down of or restrictions on religious places of worship.
According to the CDC Pandemic Severity Index, none of these measures have been warranted. The Great Barrington Declaration, signed by more than 30,000 health scientists and medical doctors from around the world, adds support for this statement.
Surprisingly, the recommendation for reducing COVID-19 morbidity and mortality by supplementing with vitamin D, a measure that is supported by high-quality research, has been absent from your frequent public broadcasts and professional bulletins.7 Optimizing nutrition is a convenient, inexpensive, and safe method of improving immune resistance and has been confirmed through numerous studies for both prevention and treatment of COVID-19. As far as I am aware, you have never mentioned something as simple as vitamin D supplements for our most vulnerable citizens. Yet, it was the promise to protect these same citizens that was used to justify the lockdown of a healthy population and the closure of businesses.
Why are you still using PCR testing? The Deputy Chief Medical Officer for Health in Ontario has publicly stated that the PCR test yields over 50% false positives. A New York Times investigative report found that PCR testing yields up to 90% false positives due to excessive amplification beyond the recommendations of the manufacturer. The PCR test was never designed, intended or validated to be used as a diagnostic tool. Even the Alberta Health Services COVID-19 Scientific Advisory Group has stated “clinical sensitivity and specificity values have not been determined for lab developed RT-PCR testing in Canada”.8 Despite expert consensus, you continue to use this inappropriate and inaccurate test to report so-called “cases” and justify your decisions.9-18
The public health definition of a “case” is very broad. As all experienced doctors know, a “case” is a patient with significant symptoms who is often hospitalized. A “case” is not a person who simply has a questionably positive PCR test and presents with no symptoms or an unrelated diagnosis. Pictures of healthy young adults standing in line to get PCR tests, with a cell phone in one hand and a Starbucks coffee in the other, are everywhere in the media. These are not sick people and do not need testing.
Nevertheless, your public announcements repeatedly emphasize that the “case” counts are rising and we are in big trouble. Recently, “out-of-control” case counts were used to justify a second lockdown in Ontario and Quebec. Curfews have been put into place. People are being asked to risk their livelihoods to make sacrifices for the general good, based on Public Health’s misrepresentation of “cases” as sick people.
Meanwhile, hospitalizations, ICU admissions, and deaths from COVID-19 have dropped to pre-pandemic levels. Where are all the patients?
Why not simply tell the public that
the PCR testing is not reliable and is meaningless for diagnosing COVID-19
positive PCR test results do not represent sick patients,
rarely are people now becoming ill from SARS-CoV-2,
provincial hospitals are essentially empty of COVID-19 patients,
decisions should not be based on “cases” in the news,
the morbidity/mortality of COVID-19 has not exceeded seasonal influenza,
the median age of death from COVID-19 in Canada was 85 years,
the pandemic is over, and
no second wave is coming?
It is your duty as the provincial health officer to provide facts, not propaganda, and make every effort to stop the public panic. The only reason for emphasizing “cases” is to induce more fear and thereby compliance in the name of promised safety.
Why are children being pursued with a new rinse-and-spit saliva test that is also based on a worthless PCR test? Children have been terrorized and are being given the message that they can never be trusted not to infect their family and friends — essentially, that they are naturally bad. The insistence on covering their faces with masks, a proven useless and even harmful measure, only worsens this sense of shame. The psychological fallout from such messaging is going to be horrific. One only needs to walk down Main Street to already see the catastrophic effects of these messages on the mental and emotional health of families.
The excess death toll from partial lockdowns, social distancing and other public health measures is staggering. The Canadian media reports that provincial measures have been shown to create 12:1 more deaths than the virus; there has been a 40% increase in heart attack deaths in Canada from fear, anxiety and cancelled hospital procedures; suicide and drug overdose deaths have increased and outnumber COVID-19 deaths by a ratio of 3:1; suicides have doubled in BC since April; and anxiety and depression, food insecurity, domestic violence, and child abuse have skyrocketed. With unnecessary school closures, the ability of teachers to identify children subject to abuse and malnourishment has been curtailed. Many of our friends, family and patients died alone, terrified, and isolated against their will in facilities and nursing homes. That cruel policy was unjustified and inhuman.
How is it possible that a doctor with your previous training and experience did not anticipate the collateral damage of your public health policies – the economic disruption, the psychological and physical health consequences, and the deaths from despair?
The mainstream media has created a religion out of public health, one based on superstition, not science, with the power to rule over an obedient public. The news channels have raised you to almost saint-like status. Tea towels, shoes and murals have been designed to celebrate your accomplishments. Yet, your public directives do not make sense, contradict the research, and are causing people a great deal of harm. As a fellow doctor, I appeal to you to re-examine your policies and change direction before Public Health causes irreparable damage to our province’s health and economic well-being. That about-face will require you to meet the obligations of your office.

Dr Simone Gold speaking on the efficacy of masks.
“Masks are irrelevant for stopping a virus. Viruses are 1000x smaller than a hair, and 50x smaller than a bacteria. It’s like saying a chain-link fence can stop a mosquito.”
An interview with Chris Schaefer, Occupational Health and Safety consultant regarding masks. Copy and paste into Google to watch. If you aren't informed on the truth about masks (they are worse than useless), this an excellent source of information
I made a few notes on this interview since FB, YouTube and other Big Tech giants are so determined to keep us from hearing the truth from experts who know what they are talking about. Likely this video will be soon be taken down.
Here are the main points I noted:
We don’t have anything designed for viruses such as the coronavirus.
Millions of viruses can sit on the head of a pin, and so masks will not even begin to prevent penetration of viruses. They pass through us as though we’re not even there, like dust blowing through a chain-link fence.
Most masks worn by the public are N-95, the lowest level of respiration and not designed to protect us from viruses
Not to be worn for long periods, and only then for very specific purposes that have nothing to do with viruses.
Non-medical coverings have no safety attached to it. None! They have no positive effect, only harmful.
The first priority for health practitioners is to promote immunity healthy with building immunity. Masks that aren’t respirators have no filtering capability whatsoever.
A match struck in a green forest don’t cause forest fires, only in old dry forests. Immunity is everything.
Viruses penetrate through the eyes, the nose, ears, and skin.
Non-medical masks are health hazards because:
- They deprive us of oxygen since there not designed for breathing. Not rated for safety, no ventilation valves for breathing, thereby severely compromising immunity.
- Restrict airflow, which is a great danger to anyone with pre-existing health conditions
- When worn of hours cause dampness and humidity causing rashes and ammonia-like conditions
- Breed bacteria, compromising health, attracting fungus in the lungs leading to pneumonia-like conditions.
- Children have a high demand for oxygen which masks restrict. Schools requiring the wearing of masks are a dangerous place for children.
- Even hand sanitizers are a health hazard and can be poisonous through skin absorption and into the bloodstream.
- Dentists are now reporting mask-mouth, a condition that can destroy teeth.
Viruses are part of our biosphere and can’t hurt us if we have a healthy immunity system. The allopathic medical system doesn’t talk about this much, but it’s the most important thing that health officials tell the public about the benefits of natural immunity boosters such as Vitamin C, Zinc, etc.

Crimes Against Humanity: Class Action Lawsuit against those responsible for the global Plannedemic.
The NEW CDC Infection Fatality Rates! According to JP
No one is safe from the government, not even a distinguished medical doctor
This letter is a bit long, but an informed response from Belgium doctors in an open letter to the government authorities.
Belgium has (or is among) the most draconian laws in the world for control, social distancing, masks, etc and yet has to date the highest COVID deaths in the world at 860 per million. Compare that to Sweden nearby with 581/million with little or none of these enforced laws.
Here's the letter:
September 5, 2020
We, Belgian doctors and health professionals wish to express our serious concern about the evolution of the situation in the recent months surrounding the outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. We call on politicians to be independently and critically informed in the decision-making process and in the compulsory implementation of corona-measures.
We ask for an open debate, where all experts are represented without any form of censorship. After the initial panic surrounding covid-19, the objective facts now show a completely different picture – there is no medical justification for any emergency policy anymore.
The current crisis management has become totally disproportionate and causes more damage than it does any good. We call for an end to all measures and ask for an immediate restoration of our normal democratic governance and legal structures and of all our civil liberties.
‘A cure must not be worse than the problem’ is a thesis that is more relevant than ever in the current situation. We note, however, that the collateral damage now being caused to the population will have a greater impact in the short and long term on all sections of the population than the number of people now being safeguarded from corona.
In our opinion, the current corona measures and the strict penalties for non-compliance with them are contrary to the values formulated by the Belgian Supreme Health Council, which, until recently, as the health authority, has always ensured quality medicine in our country: “Science – Expertise – Quality – Impartiality – Independence – Transparency”. 1
We believe that the policy has introduced mandatory measures that are not sufficiently scientifically based, unilaterally directed, and that there is not enough space in the media for an open debate in which different views and opinions are heard. In addition, each municipality and province now has the authorisation to add its own measures, whether well-founded or not.
Moreover, the strict repressive policy on corona strongly contrasts with the government’s minimal policy when it comes to disease prevention, strengthening our own immune system through a healthy lifestyle, optimal care with attention for the individual and investment in care personnel.2
The concept of health
In 1948, the WHO defined health as follows: ‘Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or other physical impairment’.3
Health, therefore, is a broad concept that goes beyond the physical and also relates to the emotional and social well-being of the individual. Belgium also has a duty, from the point of view of subscribing to fundamental human rights, to include these human rights in its decision-making when it comes to measures taken in the context of public health. 4
The current global measures taken to combat SARS-CoV-2 violate to a large extent this view of health and human rights. Measures include compulsory wearing of a mask (also in open air and during sporting activities, and in some municipalities even when there are no other people in the vicinity), physical distancing, social isolation, compulsory quarantine for some groups and hygiene measures.
The predicted pandemic with millions of deaths
At the beginning of the pandemic, the measures were understandable and widely supported, even if there were differences in implementation in the countries around us. The WHO originally predicted a pandemic that would claim 3.4% victims, in other words, millions of deaths, and a highly contagious virus for which no treatment or vaccine was available. This would put unprecedented pressure on the intensive care units (ICUs) of our hospitals.
This led to a global alarm situation, never seen in the history of mankind: “flatten the curve” was represented by a lockdown that shut down the entire society and economy and quarantined healthy people. Social distancing became the new normal in anticipation of a rescue vaccine.
The facts about covid-19
Gradually, the alarm bell was sounded from many sources: the objective facts showed a completely different reality. 5 6
The course of covid-19 followed the course of a normal wave of infection similar to a flu season. As every year, we see a mix of flu viruses following the curve: first the rhinoviruses, then the influenza A and B viruses, followed by the coronaviruses. There is nothing different from what we normally see.
The use of the non-specific PCR test, which produces many false positives, showed an exponential picture. This test was rushed through with an emergency procedure and was never seriously self-tested. The creator expressly warned that this test was intended for research and not for diagnostics.7
The PCR test works with cycles of amplification of genetic material – a piece of the genome is amplified each time. Any contamination (e.g. other viruses, debris from old virus genomes) can possibly result in false positives.8
The test does not measure how many viruses are present in the sample. A real viral infection means a massive presence of viruses, the so-called virus load. If someone tests positive, this does not mean that that person is actually clinically infected, is ill or is going to become ill. Koch’s postulate was not fulfilled (“The pure agent found in a patient with complaints can provoke the same complaints in a healthy person”).
Since a positive PCR test does not automatically indicate active infection or infectivity, this does not justify the social measures taken, which are based solely on these tests. 9 10
If we compare the waves of infection in countries with strict lockdown policies to countries that did not impose lockdowns (Sweden, Iceland …), we see similar curves. So there is no link between the imposed lockdown and the course of the infection. Lockdown has not led to a lower mortality rate.
If we look at the date of application of the imposed lockdowns we see that the lockdowns were set after the peak was already over and the number of cases decreasing. The drop was therefore not the result of the taken measures. 11
As every year, it seems that climatic conditions (weather, temperature and humidity) and growing immunity are more likely to reduce the wave of infection.
Our immune system
For thousands of years, the human body has been exposed daily to moisture and droplets containing infectious microorganisms (viruses, bacteria and fungi).
The penetration of these microorganisms is prevented by an advanced defence mechanism – the immune system. A strong immune system relies on normal daily exposure to these microbial influences. Overly hygienic measures have a detrimental effect on our immunity. 12 13 Only people with a weak or faulty immune system should be protected by extensive hygiene or social distancing.
Influenza will re-emerge in the autumn (in combination with covid-19) and a possible decrease in natural resilience may lead to further casualties.
Our immune system consists of two parts: a congenital, non-specific immune system and an adaptive immune system.
The non-specific immune system forms a first barrier: skin, saliva, gastric juice, intestinal mucus, vibratory hair cells, commensal flora, … and prevents the attachment of micro-organisms to tissue.
If they do attach, macrophages can cause the microorganisms to be encapsulated and destroyed.
The adaptive immune system consists of mucosal immunity (IgA antibodies, mainly produced by cells in the intestines and lung epithelium), cellular immunity (T-cell activation), which can be generated in contact with foreign substances or microorganisms, and humoral immunity (IgM and IgG antibodies produced by the B cells).
Recent research shows that both systems are highly entangled.
It appears that most people already have a congenital or general immunity to e.g. influenza and other viruses. This is confirmed by the findings on the cruise ship Diamond Princess, which was quarantined because of a few passengers who died of Covid-19. Most of the passengers were elderly and were in an ideal situation of transmission on the ship. However, 75% did not appear to be infected. So even in this high-risk group, the majority are resistant to the virus.
A study in the journal Cell shows that most people neutralise the coronavirus by mucosal (IgA) and cellular immunity (T-cells), while experiencing few or no symptoms 14.
Researchers found up to 60% SARS-Cov-2 reactivity with CD4+T cells in a non-infected population, suggesting cross-reactivity with other cold (corona) viruses.15
Most people therefore already have a congenital or cross-immunity because they were already in contact with variants of the same virus.
The antibody formation (IgM and IgG) by B-cells only occupies a relatively small part of our immune system. This may explain why, with an antibody percentage of 5-10%, there may be a group immunity anyway. The efficacy of vaccines is assessed precisely on the basis of whether or not we have these antibodies. This is a misrepresentation.
Most people who test positive (PCR) have no complaints. Their immune system is strong enough. Strengthening natural immunity is a much more logical approach. Prevention is an important, insufficiently highlighted pillar: healthy, full-fledged nutrition, exercise in fresh air, without a mask, stress reduction and nourishing emotional and social contacts.
Consequences of social isolation on physical and mental health
Social isolation and economic damage led to an increase in depression, anxiety, suicides, intra-family violence and child abuse.16
Studies have shown that the more social and emotional commitments people have, the more resistant they are to viruses. It is much more likely that isolation and quarantine have fatal consequences. 17
The isolation measures have also led to physical inactivity in many older people due to their being forced to stay indoors. However, sufficient exercise has a positive effect on cognitive functioning, reducing depressive complaints and anxiety and improving physical health, energy levels, well-being and, in general, quality of life.18
Fear, persistent stress and loneliness induced by social distancing have a proven negative influence on psychological and general health. 19
A highly contagious virus with millions of deaths without any treatment turned out to be many times lower than expected and close to that of a normal seasonal flu (0.2%). 20The number of registered corona deaths therefore still seems to be overestimated.
There is a difference between death by corona and death with corona. Humans are often carriers of multiple viruses and potentially pathogenic bacteria at the same time. Taking into account the fact that most people who developed serious symptoms suffered from additional pathology, one cannot simply conclude that the corona-infection was the cause of death. This was mostly not taken into account in the statistics.
The most vulnerable groups can be clearly identified. The vast majority of deceased patients were 80 years of age or older. The majority (70%) of the deceased, younger than 70 years, had an underlying disorder, such as cardiovascular suffering, diabetes mellitus, chronic lung disease or obesity. The vast majority of infected persons (>98%) did not or hardly became ill or recovered spontaneously.
Meanwhile, there is an affordable, safe and efficient therapy available for those who do show severe symptoms of disease in the form of HCQ (hydroxychloroquine), zinc and AZT (azithromycin). Rapidly applied this therapy leads to recovery and often prevents hospitalisation. Hardly anyone has to die now.
This effective therapy has been confirmed by the clinical experience of colleagues in the field with impressive results. This contrasts sharply with the theoretical criticism (insufficient substantiation by double-blind studies) which in some countries (e.g. the Netherlands) has even led to a ban on this therapy.
A meta-analysis in The Lancet, which could not demonstrate an effect of HCQ, was withdrawn. The primary data sources used proved to be unreliable and 2 out of 3 authors were in conflict of interest. However, most of the guidelines based on this study remained unchanged … 48 49
We have serious questions about this state of affairs. In the US, a group of doctors in the field, who see patients on a daily basis, united in “America’s Frontline Doctors” and gave a press conference which has been watched millions of times.21 51
French Prof Didier Raoult of the Institut d’Infectiologie de Marseille (IHU) also presented this promising combination therapy as early as April. Dutch GP Rob Elens, who cured many patients in his practice with HCQ and zinc, called on colleagues in a petition for freedom of therapy.22
The definitive evidence comes from the epidemiological follow-up in Switzerland: mortality rates compared with and without this therapy.23
From the distressing media images of ARDS (acute respiratory distress syndrome) where people were suffocating and given artificial respiration in agony, we now know that this was caused by an exaggerated immune response with intravascular coagulation in the pulmonary blood vessels. The administration of blood thinners and dexamethasone and the avoidance of artificial ventilation, which was found to cause additional damage to lung tissue, means that this dreaded complication, too, is virtually not fatal anymore. 47
It is therefore not a killer virus, but a well-treatable condition.
Spreading occurs by drip infection (only for patients who cough or sneeze) and aerosols in closed, unventilated rooms. Contamination is therefore not possible in the open air. Contact tracing and epidemiological studies show that healthy people (or positively tested asymptomatic carriers) are virtually unable to transmit the virus. Healthy people therefore do not put each other at risk. 24 25
Transfer via objects (e.g. money, shopping or shopping trolleys) has not been scientifically proven.26 27 28
All this seriously calls into question the whole policy of social distancing and compulsory mouth masks for healthy people – there is no scientific basis for this.
Oral masks belong in contexts where contacts with proven at-risk groups or people with upper respiratory complaints take place, and in a medical context/hospital-retirement home setting. They reduce the risk of droplet infection by sneezing or coughing. Oral masks in healthy individuals are ineffective against the spread of viral infections. 29 30 31
Wearing a mask is not without side effects. 32 33 Oxygen deficiency (headache, nausea, fatigue, loss of concentration) occurs fairly quickly, an effect similar to altitude sickness. Every day we now see patients complaining of headaches, sinus problems, respiratory problems and hyperventilation due to wearing masks. In addition, the accumulated CO2 leads to a toxic acidification of the organism which affects our immunity. Some experts even warn of an increased transmission of the virus in case of inappropriate use of the mask.34
Our Labour Code (Codex 6) refers to a CO2 content (ventilation in workplaces) of 900 ppm, maximum 1200 ppm in special circumstances. After wearing a mask for one minute, this toxic limit is considerably exceeded to values that are three to four times higher than these maximum values. Anyone who wears a mask is therefore in an extreme poorly ventilated room. 35
Inappropriate use of masks without a comprehensive medical cardio-pulmonary test file is therefore not recommended by recognised safety specialists for workers. Hospitals have a sterile environment in their operating rooms where staff wear masks and there is precise regulation of humidity / temperature with appropriately monitored oxygen flow to compensate for this, thus meeting strict safety standards. 36
A second corona wave?
A second wave is now being discussed in Belgium, with a further tightening of the measures as a result. However, closer examination of Sciensano’s figures37 shows that, although there has been an increase in the number of infections since mid-July, there was no increase in hospital admissions or deaths at that time. It is therefore not a second wave of corona, but a so-called “case chemistry” due to an increased number of tests. 50
The number of hospital admissions or deaths showed a short-lasting minimal increase in recent weeks, but in interpreting it, we must take into account the recent heatwave. In addition, the vast majority of the victims are still in the population group >75 years.
This indicates that the proportion of the measures taken in relation to the working population and young people is disproportionate to the intended objectives.
The vast majority of the positively tested “infected” persons are in the age group of the active population, which does not develop any or merely limited symptoms, due to a well-functioning immune system. So nothing has changed – the peak is over.
Strengthening a prevention policy
The corona measures form a striking contrast to the minimal policy pursued by the government until now, when it comes to well-founded measures with proven health benefits such as the sugar tax, the ban on (e-)cigarettes and making healthy food, exercise and social support networks financially attractive and widely accessible. It is a missed opportunity for a better prevention policy that could have brought about a change in mentality in all sections of the population with clear results in terms of public health. At present, only 3% of the health care budget goes to prevention. 2
The Hippocratic Oath
As a doctor, we took the Hippocratic Oath:
I will above all care for my patients, promote their health and alleviate their suffering”.
“I will inform my patients correctly.”
“Even under pressure, I will not use my medical knowledge for practices that are against humanity.”
The current measures force us to act against this oath.
Other health professionals have a similar code.
The ‘primum non nocere’, which every doctor and health professional assumes, is also undermined by the current measures and by the prospect of the possible introduction of a generalised vaccine, which is not subject to extensive prior testing.
Survey studies on influenza vaccinations show that in 10 years we have only succeeded three times in developing a vaccine with an efficiency rate of more than 50%. Vaccinating our elderly appears to be inefficient. Over 75 years of age, the efficacy is almost non-existent.38
Due to the continuous natural mutation of viruses, as we also see every year in the case of the influenza virus, a vaccine is at most a temporary solution, which requires new vaccines each time afterwards. An untested vaccine, which is implemented by emergency procedure and for which the manufacturers have already obtained legal immunity from possible harm, raises serious questions. 39 40
We do not wish to use our patients as guinea pigs. On a global scale, 700 000 cases of damage or death are expected as a result of the vaccine.41 If 95% of people experience Covid-19 virtually symptom-free, the risk of exposure to an untested vaccine is irresponsible.
The role of the media and the official communication plan
Over the past few months, newspaper, radio and TV makers seemed to stand almost uncritically behind the panel of experts and the government, there, where it is precisely the press that should be critical and prevent one-sided governmental communication. This has led to a public communication in our news media, that was more like propaganda than objective reporting.
In our opinion, it is the task of journalism to bring news as objectively and neutrally as possible, aimed at finding the truth and critically controlling power, with dissenting experts also being given a forum in which to express themselves.
This view is supported by the journalistic codes of ethics.42
The official story that a lockdown was necessary, that this was the only possible solution, and that everyone stood behind this lockdown, made it difficult for people with a different view, as well as experts, to express a different opinion.
Alternative opinions were ignored or ridiculed. We have not seen open debates in the media, where different views could be expressed.
We were also surprised by the many videos and articles by many scientific experts and authorities, which were and are still being removed from social media. We feel that this does not fit in with a free, democratic constitutional state, all the more so as it leads to tunnel vision. This policy also has a paralysing effect and feeds fear and concern in society. In this context, we reject the intention of censorship of dissidents in the European Union! 43
The way in which Covid-19 has been portrayed by politicians and the media has not done the situation any good either. War terms were popular and warlike language was not lacking. There has often been mention of a ‘war’ with an ‘invisible enemy’ who has to be ‘defeated’. The use in the media of phrases such as ‘care heroes in the front line’ and ‘corona victims’ has further fuelled fear, as has the idea that we are globally dealing with a ‘killer virus’.
The relentless bombardment with figures, that were unleashed on the population day after day, hour after hour, without interpreting those figures, without comparing them to flu deaths in other years, without comparing them to deaths from other causes, has induced a real psychosis of fear in the population. This is not information, this is manipulation.
We deplore the role of the WHO in this, which has called for the infodemic (i.e. all divergent opinions from the official discourse, including by experts with different views) to be silenced by an unprecedented media censorship.43 44
We urgently call on the media to take their responsibilities here!
We demand an open debate in which all experts are heard.
Emergency law versus Human Rights
The general principle of good governance calls for the proportionality of government decisions to be weighed up in the light of the Higher Legal Standards: any interference by government must comply with the fundamental rights as protected in the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). Interference by public authorities is only permitted in crisis situations. In other words, discretionary decisions must be proportionate to an absolute necessity.
The measures currently taken concern interference in the exercise of, among other things, the right to respect of private and family life, freedom of thought, conscience and religion, freedom of expression and freedom of assembly and association, the right to education, etc., and must therefore comply with fundamental rights as protected by the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).
For example, in accordance with Article 8(2) of the ECHR, interference with the right to private and family life is permissible only if the measures are necessary in the interests of national security, public safety, the economic well-being of the country, the protection of public order and the prevention of criminal offences, the protection of health or the protection of the rights and freedoms of others, the regulatory text on which the interference is based must be sufficiently clear, foreseeable and proportionate to the objectives pursued.45
The predicted pandemic of millions of deaths seemed to respond to these crisis conditions, leading to the establishment of an emergency government. Now that the objective facts show something completely different, the condition of inability to act otherwise (no time to evaluate thoroughly if there is an emergency) is no longer in place. Covid-19 is not a cold virus, but a well treatable condition with a mortality rate comparable to the seasonal flu. In other words, there is no longer an insurmountable obstacle to public health.
There is no state of emergency.
Immense damage caused by the current policies
An open discussion on corona measures means that, in addition to the years of life gained by corona patients, we must also take into account other factors affecting the health of the entire population. These include damage in the psychosocial domain (increase in depression, anxiety, suicides, intra-family violence and child abuse)16 and economic damage.
If we take this collateral damage into account, the current policy is out of all proportion, the proverbial use of a sledgehammer to crack a nut.
We find it shocking that the government is invoking health as a reason for the emergency law.
As doctors and health professionals, in the face of a virus which, in terms of its harmfulness, mortality and transmissibility, approaches the seasonal influenza, we can only reject these extremely disproportionate measures
· We therefore demand an immediate end to all measures.
· We are questioning the legitimacy of the current advisory experts, who meet behind closed doors.
· Following on from ACU 2020 46 https://acu2020.org/nederlandse-versie/ we call for an in-depth examination of the role of the WHO and the possible influence of conflicts of interest in this organisation. It was also at the heart of the fight against the “infodemic”, i.e. the systematic censorship of all dissenting opinions in the media. This is unacceptable for a democratic state governed by the rule of law.43
Distribution of this letter
We would like to make a public appeal to our professional associations and fellow carers to give their opinion on the current measures.
We draw attention to and call for an open discussion in which carers can and dare to speak out.
With this open letter, we send out the signal that progress on the same footing does more harm than good, and call on politicians to inform themselves independently and critically about the available evidence – including that from experts with different views, as long as it is based on sound science – when rolling out a policy, with the aim of promoting optimum health.
With concern, hope and in a personal capacity.

Sept 24 COVID / Governments and Vaccinations: BE AWARE
Copy, paste and share
Sept 22 Dr Keith Mumby Newsletter Issue 388 September 2020
Figures for influenza deaths are the lowest ever… and we know why. They’ve all been grabbed as “COVID deaths” for those hungry to justify the stupidity and science that they are peddling.
It’s common knowledge that COVID-19 is one of the mildest viruses around. Almost a third of Britons reported to have died from coronavirus in July and August passed away due to other reasons, Oxford University researchers have recently said.
They found that the official COVID-19 death statistics included anyone who died after testing positive for the virus – even if they had later been hit by a car or had had a heart attack!
It’s the same in the USA. Only 6% of those who died in the pandemic wave died of COVID-19. The others had heart disease, diabetes, obesity and other so-called “co-morbidities” (bad stuff going on at the same time).
Fakers claim that it’s still valid to call it a COVID death, since the person wouldn’t have died, except for contracting the virus. BUT THERE IS NO EVIDENCE WHATEVER FOR THIS RIDICULOUS CLAIM. We know from yearly figures that these unhealthy individuals most certainly WOULD have died. That’s what happens: people get seriously sick, they die!
In Britain, where I trust the researchers more than the CDC criminals (but I don’t trust Bungling Boris and the Bozos – which could be a nice name for a jokey pop group, don’t you think!) investigators found coronavirus was not the main cause of death in 465 cases out of 1,617 people recorded as dying from Covid-19 over the summer months.
Add to this the fact that COVID-19 is no longer even in the top ten of England’s biggest killers! Official UK figures revealed the virus dropped from eighth place last month to 24th, with dementia and heart disease at the top of the list.
But Boris Johnson and his Cabinet still want to shut the country down and further destroy the economy, because they are so deep into their lies, stupidity and incompetence, it is now IMPOSSIBLE for them to admit they made a grave mistake by locking down the country.
“We got it wrong but we have to keep going, otherwise everyone will know we shouldn’t have done it in the first place…” mentality.
A lot of people think that Boris Johnson is now deranged, as a result of his brush with death. There could be something to that story. Miserable Brits are being told they will be locked-down for a further full 6 months.
That’s where the conspiracy plot comes in. Nobody can know what the situation is going to be like in 6 weeks, yet these con artists are going to go on with their reckless, criminal behavior for a further half a year?
The Barking Mad Scientists Who Can’t THINK!
They are trying to claim that distancing measures and masks are the reason influenza numbers are down this year! Duh!
Flu numbers in the U.S. were historically low during COVID-19 in the spring, with deep declines also occurring in the recently completed Southern Hemisphere flu season, CDC researchers found.
Well, isn’t that obvious, with every sniffle and cough counted as “presumptive COVID”? No flu was recorded because they were counted as COVID instead, to bolster the fake stats. You can’t have it both ways: if you fake the stats in one direction, it will show up as a distortion of other stats too.
Take away the usual annual figures for flu deaths from the recent deaths and THERE IS NO PANDEMIC! OK, a few died. But take away those we know would have died anyway, of diabetes, heart disease, etc. and we are now probably into a minus statistic, not even an epidemic!
How do I know? C’mon, look at the massaging of stats: influenza positivity rates in specimens tested fell 98% in 2020 during March 1-May 16 relative to the earlier winter seasons figures.
Such a steep decline is simply NOT POSSIBLE unless the influenza figures were being co-opted to the pretend COVID deaths. In which case it is “possible” but not true!
Indeed, circulation of influenza in the U.S. hit historic lows in summer 2020, with a median of 0.20% positive tests from May 17-August 8 versus 1%-2% from 2017-2019, the authors wrote in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. A graph indicated that influenza positivity rates dropped off sharply, approaching zero by early April — a time that, in previous seasons, it hovered around 15%.
Fluff spinners for the CDC, Sonja Olsen and colleagues in Atlanta, stated they used March 1 as a benchmark because it was closest to when the U.S. declared COVID-19 a public health emergency, and when “widespread implementation” of community measures such as school closures, social distancing, and mask-wearing started around the country.
But in fact, COVID figures shot UP, after the lockdown. Any school kid learning science would conclude therefore that lockdown CAUSED the sudden surge in COVID figures.
But no, the attempt at science bluffing goes on: Because influenza is less transmissible than SARS-CoV-2, these measures “likely contributed to a more substantial interruption in influenza transmission,” according to Olsen and colleagues. “Although causality cannot be inferred from these ecological comparisons, the consistent trends over time and place are compelling and biologically plausible.”
She says plausible, I say not plausible. I invite you to make up your mind who is likely to be right.
Now you need to keep in mind the background essentials here: historically, the CDC does NOT test for flu, they just make it up. Yes, incredible but true. Sharyll Atkisson reported that in 2009 the CDC (secretly) stopped reporting true swine flu statistics. Why? The routine testing of tissue samples from the most likely Swine Flu patients was coming back overwhelmingly WITH NO SIGN OF SWINE FLU OR ANY OTHER KIND OF FLU.
But that didn’t stop the CDC claiming: “14 million to 34 million U.S. residents — the CDC’s best guess is 22 million — came down with H1N1 swine flu by Oct. 17 ”, as reported by a November 12, 2009, WebMD article.
The CDC are accomplished and criminal liars. So keep this firmly in mind. The actual final figure was… 18 cases. No, I’m not kidding. In December 2005, the British Medical Journal (online version) published a shocking report by Peter Doshi, which shook the walls of the CDC: “…in only 18 cases the influenza virus was positively identified”. [BMJ 2005; 331: 1412]
You can trust the BMJ a bit more than the CDC because the BMJ is not selling anything! The CDC sells all the vaccines that they claim people should have.
Olsen and colleagues said COVID-related community mitigation measures, if continued through the fall, could keep influenza down in the U.S. this winter. Nevertheless, the authors emphasized the importance of flu vaccination this year, given the likelihood of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza circulating at the same time.
They want it all, don’t they? You have to BELIEVE that all the COVID deaths are real, because we say so. Influenza deaths are almost zero BUT YOU STILL BETTER GET YOUR FLU JAB! Say what? If wearing masks and social distancing was really effective in virtually eliminating flu, as you claim, then why do we need vaccination at all?

And maybe let your mask go too. It's useless except to project fear.
The only thing I fear or at least fear for others are those damned masks that everyone feels compelled to wear. Not just because they creep me out, but because everyone is going to fall down dead from hypoxia by this fall from destroying their immunity systems. Sucking in your own germs and carbon can't be good. Now we're going to force this on children while sending out a message of fear. CRIMINAL!
Of course, the 'health' officials all think this is great wearing a face diaper for the virus to cling to. Even the WHO said it would require three layers of cloth, all with different fabrics to be much of a deterrent.
What MSM doesn't want you to know. Since this WHO admission came out in June, the issue of transmission remains a raging controversy with plenty of push-backs by the same vested interests who don't wish to admit they are wrong about this and HOQ. This site may not be up for long before the FB police shut it down.
However, the CDC (Centre of Disease Control) has just released a statement last week that only 6% of coronavirus death remains directly attributable to the virus with 2 or more other conditions existing at the time of death. Anything, such as the flu, or cold would contribute to death. However, that hardly fits the narrative of fear.
See the article below by Clay Travis
CDC: JUST 6% OF COVID DEATHS OCCURRED WITHOUT CO-MORBIDITIES
This past week the CDC finally seemed to get fed up with the coronavirus hysteria that has existed in this country since March.
First, the CDC released new guidelines saying there was no need for asymptomatic people to get tested if they were otherwise young and healthy. That’s even if you were exposed to someone who had tested positive for the virus.
Then the CDC put up on their official website the following details for people who have covid symptoms: “If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and want to get tested, call your healthcare provider first. Most people will have mild illness and can recover at home without medical care and may not need to be tested.”
So, yeah, the CDC is telling you to treat covid like any other illness. Stay home if you’re sick, you’ll probably be fine. That’s because for most people covid is a mild illness. If, however, you get sick enough to need treatment, go seek treatment.
This is the advice we should have had since March. And in retrospect, we should have never, ever shut down at all. (In fact, if New York governor Andrew Cuomo hadn’t been the worst political leader this century, we probably wouldn’t have ever panicked in the first place. New York was such a disaster that the rest of the country panicked based on their incompetence. An incompetence, by the way, that led to the worst coronavirus response in the entire world.)
But this was the final kicker that also went up on the CDC website:
“For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.”
This illuminates what I have been saying for a long time, there’s a big difference between dying WITH COVID and dying FROM COVID.
94% of people are dying with covid, per the CDC, not because of it. In fact, not only are people dying with it, they are dying with covid and an average of 2.6 additional conditions or causes of death.
This would mean roughly 10,000 deaths are directly attributable to covid alone.
Because right now if you have terminal lung cancer, kidney and liver failure and covid, you are counted as a covid death.
Now, this doesn’t mean covid can’t be dangerous, it can. But it’s almost exclusively dangerous among those with extremely ill health, that is multiple serious co-morbidities, or extremely advanced age.
Now, to be fair, what we still don’t know is what percentage of people who have died with covid in 2020 would otherwise be alive if this virus had never existed. That is, it’s possible there are likely more than the roughly 10,000 people who are listed as dying from covid alone who have died with covid and another illness. Maybe if covid never existed those people could have survived their co-morbidities and might still be alive today. (Although this raises an interesting question, if covid was the tipping point illness for many very sick people with multiple co-morbidities, wouldn’t the number of elderly people dying in later months this year and next year likely be lower than normal? Because those very ill people had their deaths accelerated by a few months due to covid? That seems likely to me.)
We don’t know the answer to this question and we can’t just look at excess death data either because, and this is the really unfortunate part of our shutdown madness, there is now strong evidence that locking down our country cost us more years of life in this country than we gained.
This is according to the incredible work being done by the Ethical Skeptic Twitter account. (You should all go follow him for his charts and analysis of covid data).
Remember, the average age of death from covid in this country is older than the average age of death in this country overall. Meanwhile, the people who are dying in excess numbers from something other than covid due to our lockdowns are much younger. These are much younger people dying of suicides, drug overdoses, from declining to seek medical care for fear of covid.
And this is a MONSTER story. A story which, not surprisingly, almost no one is telling.
We shut down our country to protect very old people from covid yet the deaths of much younger people from other causes are actually costing us more years of life, by far, than the years of life we are protecting. And this doesn’t even count, by the way, all the disastrous impacts from children being kept out of school for months at a time. There’s been a tremendous rise, for instance, in domestic abuse and, likely, child abuse during the lockdown as well. And it also doesn’t count the very real economic costs of tens of millions of lost jobs, which will echo through poor families for years and years.
Let’s just be clear here: outside of nursing homes — which comprise nearly half of our deaths in this country despite only having .6 of our population — there is zero reason for any lockdowns to still exist in this country.
It’s well past time for everyone to be back at work, school, and playing sports on all levels from little league to pro sports. And if you don’t want to do that because the media has terrified you, that’s your choice, you can stay in your house buried under the covers forever, but the rest of us need to get on with our lives, you can’t hold us hostage any longer.
Unfortunately, this isn’t happening because covid is now the entire basis for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. Meaning instead of these facts being debated and discussed in a rational manner, Biden has tied his entire campaign to stoking more fear based on the false idea that we’re all in tremendous danger from the coronavirus.
Even if it’s not true at all.
Worse than that, the media, which ostensibly exists to speak truth to power, has also completely embraced the fear porn narrative as well.
Which is why our national response to the coronavirus is the biggest failure of truth, logic, and honesty since the Vietnam War.
It’s time for you, me, and everyone else with a functional brain to get back to our normal lives.
THE MASQUE OF ANARCHY
by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Timely words by Shelley for those who remain asleep, still complying with the regulations of our elected officials that contribute to the destruction of our sanity and freedom, all in the name of 'safety.'
From the last stanza of his poem, written 200 years ago.
"Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number—
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you—
Ye are many—they are few."
Indeed, shake off your chains, "ye are many - they are few." For more of the poem, read below
THE MASK OF ANARCHY [Excerpt]
"Stand ye calm and resolute,
Like a forest close and mute,
With folded arms and looks which are
Weapons of unvanquished war,
"And let Panic, who outspeeds
The career of armèd steeds
Pass, a disregarded shade
Through your phalanx undismayed.
"Let the laws of your own land,
Good or ill, between ye stand
Hand to hand, and foot to foot,
Arbiters of the dispute,
"The old laws of England—they
Whose reverend heads with age are gray,
Children of a wiser day;
And whose solemn voice must be
Thine own echo—Liberty!
"On those who first should violate
Such sacred heralds in their state
Rest the blood that must ensue,
And it will not rest on you.
"And if then the tyrants dare
Let them ride among you there,
Slash, and stab, and maim, and hew,—
What they like, that let them do.
"With folded arms and steady eyes,
And little fear, and less surprise,
Look upon them as they slay
Till their rage has died away.
"Then they will return with shame
To the place from which they came,
And the blood thus shed will speak
In hot blushes on their cheek.
"Every woman in the land
Will point at them as they stand—
They will hardly dare to greet
Their acquaintance on the street.
"And the bold, true warriors
Who have hugged Danger in wars
Will turn to those who would be free,
Ashamed of such base company.
"And that slaughter to the Nation
Shall steam up like inspiration,
A volcano heard afar.
"And these words shall then become
Like Oppression's thundered doom
Ringing through each heart and brain,
"Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number—
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you—
Ye are many—they are few."

SWEDEN'S 'HERD IMMUNITY' VINDICATED
Sweden's success without lockdown, masks or social distancing. Looks like the crisis is all but over with the least economic/social consequences. And fewer deaths/million than many other shut down countries like Britain
An article from one of my favourite contrarian doctors, Dr Keith Mumby, who has the courage to say it like it is.
Issue 381 | Date: Friday at 6:43AM, Aug 7, 2020 6:43AM
The New Abnormal
They are calling it the "new normal". I refuse to conform. It's ABNORMAL.
According to one top British doctor colleague: "It's all farcical" (Dr. John Lee, former Professor of Pathology at Hull York Medical School and a recently retired NHS consultant).
"In this crazy world, citizens who thought they lived in a sane, civilized country are treated like imbeciles, unable to make everyday risk assessments for themselves," he complains.
As a result, they are bound by farcical rules, exemplified by the re-implemented Northern lockdown, where it is permitted to meet a lover with whom you do not co-habit in a hotel, but not in either of your private homes!
You can get married… but your father is not allowed to walk you down the aisle on the day of your dreams!
Britain, US, and the rest of the once-civilized world, it seems has gone from lockdown to la-la-land! The unbelievable damage to everyone's health and society's economic structure is totally impossible to over-estimate. We may never recover. But it won't be a new "normal", it will be an abnormal, desperate, miserable, unsustainable and, frankly, intolerable world.
What are we doing to the future for our kids and grandkids? Has anyone ever asked THEM? No of course not. This whole charade is a take-over of human rights that makes the Nazis and Khmer Rouge look like Red Cross volunteers.
Grounded in dubious science and cowardly politics, the grievous wounds we have inflicted upon ourselves with the COVID-19 lockdown are becoming more evident every day.
Yet still, some doctors are screaming that people MUST take this disaster more seriously; that people are not obeying; that it is reckless and suicidal to ignore orders. Who are these crazy medical psychopaths? Have they taken leave of their senses? What happened to good, old-fashioned science and epidemiology?
The numbers don't justify even the slightest concern when compared to other causes of death. The "pandemic" is a hoax, forced on the population by:
Corrupt politicians, following god-knows-what path to power
Cyber-criminals, such as Facebook, Google and Twitter, who are determined to undermine the public's entitlement (yes, ENTITLEMENT) to the truth; the full truth and nothing but the truth.
While the world burns to ruin, and trade and industry vanish before our eyes, governments continue to bankroll idlers with furlough schemes, which allow individuals to lie on the beach, lawn or sofa while everything around them collapses. Soon there will be no employment for them to return to. By then, it will be too late.
Yet ministers, senators and other leaders talk as if it was all "under control". Nothing could be further from the truth.
We are living in A WORLD GONE MAD.
The whole health industry is on hold and dying as rapidly as patients. You can die of cancer, stroke, heart disease and diabetes. Nobody cares. Service is "shut" for the summer. But if you likely die of "the virus", everyone flies into agonies of dread and threatens to return to lockdown, or even more wild measures for public "safety".
Say what? The only threat to public safety is insane politicians, with their knee jerk reactions, looking for some kind of acclaim that they "did their duty". I have been saying all along, as most of you know, that we will die of politicians, not the virus.
The grievous wounds they have inflicted on us with the COVID-19 lockdown are becoming more evident every day.
It is particularly acute in the UK, where measures designed to help the health service withstand coronavirus cases have resulted in tens of thousands of people with cancer, heart disease and diabetes find themselves consigned to ever-longer waiting lists, left undiagnosed and untreated.
Where Is The Perspective?
The latest figures from the Office for National Statistics reveal cancer deaths were almost four times higher than they should have been in the month of June.
What this means, in reality, is that tens of thousands more people will die of cancer due to counter-measures for this virus that, according to the latest figures, is killing less than a tenth of the number it was at its peak and overall has resulted in a similar number of fatalities to those we'd expect during a bad influenza season.
Yet, in London alone, those waiting for surgical procedures for more than a year have shot up to almost 20,000 from just 1,154 across the whole of England 18 months ago.
Why don't politicians get this? What is gripping them in this macabre slow dance of death? Maybe their brains have been taken over by aliens or lizards; their neurological systems are shot!
Of course, it's no joke really. Because the figures are being so obviously faked, we may never know precisely how many people have died and will die of COVID-19, but we know the death rate globally is very low, between 0.1 and 0.5 per cent of those infected, according to research group Swiss Policy Research.
What we do know is that the majority of deaths occurred in people with pre-existing conditions and that the median age of those who died from COVID is above 80.
In the eyes of many in the political and scientific establishment, action was necessary. But as Dr. John Lee warned us back in May, the Government's eagerness to lockdown amounts to nothing more than the medicine of the madhouse.
To put that in perspective, when Boris Johnson saw fit to implement total lockdown on March 23 there had been just 335 COVID deaths in Britain.
So why were there no demands for a national shutdown in Britain in the winter of 2014/15, when more than 28,000 people died from seasonal flu; or during the Hong Kong flu epidemic of 1968, when a million people died worldwide, some 80,000 of them in Britain?

Open Letter to Physicians and the Public of Alberta
Dear Dr Hinshaw,
Re: Alberta Health recommendation that Albertans wear N95, surgical or non-medical masks in public to reduce the likelihood of transmitting or developing a condition from the coronavirus known as COVID-19
I have been teaching and conducting respirator fit testing for over 20 years and now currently for my company SafeCom Training Services Inc. My clients include many government departments, our military, healthcare providers with Alberta Health Services, educational institutions and private industry. I am a published author and a recognized authority on this subject.
Filter respirator masks, especially N95, surgical and non-medical masks, provide negligible COVID-19 protection for the following reasons:
1. Viruses in the fluid envelopes that surround them can be very small, so small in fact that you would need an electron microscope to see them. N95 masks filter 95% of particles with a diameter of 0.3 microns or larger. COVID-19 particles are .08 - .12 microns.
2. Viruses don’t just enter us through our mouth and nose, but can also enter through our eyes and even the pores of our skin. The only effective barrier one can wear to protect against virus exposure would be a fully encapsulated hazmat suit with cuffs by ankles taped to boots and cuffs by wrists taped to gloves, while receiving breathing air from a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
This barrier is standard gear to protect against a biohazard (viruses) and would have to be worn in a possible virus hazard environment 24/7 and you wouldn’t be able to remove any part of it even to have a sip of water, eat or use the washroom while in the virus environment. If you did, you would become exposed and would negate all the prior precautions you had taken.
3. Not only are N95, surgical and non-medical masks useless as protection from COVID-19, but in addition, they also create very real risks and possible serious threats to a wearer’s health for the following reasons:
A. Wearing these masks increases breathing resistance, making it more difficult to both inhale and exhale. According to our Alberta government regulations on respirator (mask) use, anyone that is required to wear a respirator mask should be screened to determine their ability to safely wear one.
Any covering of the mouth and nose increases breathing resistance, whether the mask is certified or not. Those individuals with pre-existing medical conditions of shortness of breath, lung disease, panic attacks, breathing difficulties, chest pain in exertion, cardiovascular disease, fainting spells, claustrophobia, chronic bronchitis, heart problems, asthma, allergies, diabetes, seizures, high blood pressure and pacemakers need to be pre-screened by a medical professional to be approved to be able to safely wear one. Wearing these masks could cause a medical emergency for anyone with any of these conditions.
Pregnancy-related high blood pressure is possible. More research is necessary to determine the impact of wearing a mask for extended periods of time on pregnancy.
It is dangerous to recommend, much less mandate anyone with medical conditions to wear a mask without educating them about the risks involved in wearing them without having been pre-screened and approved by a medical professional first.
B. In order for any respirator mask to offer protection to a specific user, that user must be individually fitted with the right type, right size, if male – face must be clean-shaven (only short moustache allowed). Next, the user must be fit tested with that respirator by a trained professional to determine whether or not the respirator is providing the user with an air-tight seal – a requirement for any respirator mask.
C. N95 masks – N for not resistant to oil particles, 95 for the percentage of protection – the lowest level of all respirator masks
These masks even when properly sized and fitted will not protect against virus exposure, however they are capable of adequate protection from larger particles such as pet dander, pollen and sawdust.
Surgical masks (the paper ones that loop around the ears) – do not seal to the face and do not filter anything.
Nonmedical and/or homemade masks are dangerous because:
● Not engineered for the efficient yet protective requirements of easy inhalation and effective purging of exhaled carbon dioxide
● Could cause an oxygen deficiency for the user
● Could cause an accumulation of carbon dioxide for the user
● Shouldn’t be recommended under any circumstance
D. They increase body temperature and physical stress – could cause a high-temperature alert on a thermometer gun
E. They impede verbal communication
F. N95, surgical and nonmedical masks can create infections and possible disease all by themselves by causing exhaled warm, moist air to accumulate on the inside material of the mask, right in front of the user’s mouth and nose, which is the perfect environment for bacteria to form, grow and multiply. That is why N95 and other disposable masks were only designed to be short duration, specific task use and then immediately discarded.
So if masks are not effective in preventing illness, what is? How about the age-old tried, tested and proven method of protecting our health with a healthy diet, clean water, avoidance of processed, junk and fast foods, plenty of fresh air, sunshine, moderate exercise, adequate restful sleep and avoidance of stress?
We all have an immune system that can fight and overcome any COVID-19 threat if it is healthy and we nurture it.

Dr Gold, a physician and lawyer takes on the media's COVID misinformation/censorship
An informative video on Hydroxychloroquine
CDC's dubious criteria for counting 'cases'
Really good information you won't get on MSM. Unlike many other videos, this one is still up.
Notice how the current COVID deaths are going down (red line) in the USA as cases are rising (blue line). Shouldn't deaths be going up with more cases? Why isn't it? It's what we call Herd Immunity. But it doesn't serve the political agenda of the authorities.
The doctors return after being shut down by FB, Twitter and the other social media. These posts only last a matter of hours before FB takes them down. So, sorry you can't see these if they are gone.
A very important video. Everyone needs to see to hear the truth of what's going on with the virus cover-ups. Doctors who aren't scared are beginning to speak out!
Sorry, but looks like FB took it down again. I think what's going on is beyond fascism. When will the public rise up against this before travesty before its too late? Is not compliance complicity?
The below link is a copy. FB and Twitter took it down instantly without any medical basis. Purely political.
Looks like FB and the rest of social media took it down again for the second time. If interested, research chloroquine on Google under CDC. It's natural and has cured many with COVID (some doctors say all they have treated).
Also, it has been FDA approved for 65 years and effective treatment in malaria throughout the world. Countries throughout the world such as France have tested for the virus and many doctors there now use it, some with 100% cure results. But does BIG PHARM like it. Trillions of dollars are at stake if they can get the vaccinations mandated. Tens of billions are at stake in MSM, since much of their advertising income derives from BIG PHARM... so we're never going to get the truth there.
What they did in Italy to change their approach and protocols in treating COVID
There is a big controversy regarding the WHO reporting that those who are asymptomatic rarely spread the virus. One analyst recently observed that: "the more significant issue here is that if someone who’s asymptomatic tests positive, he/she is counted as a confirmed case, yet none of the reporting includes info about either 1) the number of asymptomatic cases, or 2) the percentage of cases that are asymptomatic (the rate). The vast majority of people exposed to COVID don’t have or develop symptoms, so the reported number of cases is wildly high and misleading, causing people to believe it’s a far greater threat and health risk than it actually is.
"Additionally, the mortality numbers are inflated, as they include people with terminal illnesses and other serious existing conditions. All such people who test positive and subsequently pass on are reported as COVID mortalities, regardless of the actual cause of death.

Are wearing masks to protect yourself from the virus is something you should do? It seems most government health authorities say yes. But there is no doubt that hypoxia (oxygen deprivation) weakens our immunity system and serves to promote fear, which also weakens immunity by breathing in our exhaled bacteria. We are not plants; we need oxygen, not our own carbon. Another thing, the average age of COVID death is 82, about the same as average life expectancy. So what's the point?
In my province of Alberta, there have been 150 Corona deaths, almost all are elderly seniors with pre-existing conditions. The kind that dies each year from influenza. The population of Alberta is over 4.4 million. Averaging 150 deaths over 4.4 million is only .00003. Yet the government is trying to scare everyone into wearing masks. Why?

Viv and I took the plunge and set off for our annual trip to Europe, rather uncertain of what we would encounter. One thing was clear before we started our journey is that the majority of people have bought into the devious and phoney "pandemic". Folks are scared everywhere, which means (to me) they have no sense of judgement and discernment. They can't tell the difference between a big FAT lie and the weather forecast!
But I must say, as former Brits, we were shocked—stunned even—by the degree of fear we met in England. The propaganda has worked so effectively, people at large were terrified of human contact. Idiots were "sanitizing" their hands 10 – 20 times a day with the toxic filth offered for "safety". They would jump backwards, away from you, if you approached.
Viv was in tears one afternoon because nobody in her family would even touch her. They were being "cautious", they claimed. But this was just at a time when she needed maximum hugs, due to her mother's recent passing.
So that's what it has come to? A trumped-up terror campaign, based on lies and fake science, has people losing all sense of humanity, caring and belonging? People don't want to even comfort family? The world is surely trembling with evil.
One would rightly ask: will things ever go back to normal? Based on what I observed in the UK, no. Indeed, there may be much more to come. Rumours of a new lockdown are everywhere.
But how about France? Italy? We heard France was "open"! So as soon as we were done self-isolating, we got on a boat and took off! The so-called air corridor had opened days before and quarantine was no longer required. Even so, as we drove to the ferry port, we saw not one single foreign car. Usually, as we near the port of Dover, there are Dutch, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Belgian cars, even Danish and Polish, and other countries further afield, making up a bigger and bigger percentage of the traffic.
None. Not one foreign vehicle did we see on the roads. There is NO EUROPE any more! Nobody had been or wanted to go, to Britain, with its lunatic, extreme measures. And I can't say I blame them. Boris Johnson has completely lost the plot, getting more and more extreme as things improve, not less.
Now he wants everyone is to wear masks everywhere, until the end of the year! This is the grubby bullying of politicians who have an eye on the next election, instead of doing their job.
Boris is not a doctor; he doesn't even have a first-aid certificate. Yet he's is enslaving the whole country far into the future—far beyond what any intelligent scientist could predict. It also spurns natural recovery. You know me: I BELIEVE IN NATURE. She heals; that's my platform.
Not Boris. He thinks he's God and knows better than Mother Nature. Ha! Nature and immunity are rubbish in his political agenda. You know I've been saying from day #1 that's it's politicians who will kill us, not the virus (if there even is a virus).
It may not happen, because the common-sense outcry has been so enormous. But I mean…
Vive La France!
So, onward to France! What a difference! It's one big party! We were so happy to dump the masks, walk the streets and eat scrumptious food, mixing with other happy, liberated people!

IT MAKES YOU WONDER
Do truth a favour; please forward on
June 23, 2020
Nobel Winning Chemist, Michael Levitt provides a balanced and informed analysis
June 20, 2020
What they don't wish you to know.
Let me interject some recent information on this virus and the surrounding controversy.
The deaths in the USA are reported to have exceeded 100,000, although many medical professionals have disputed what constitutes a COVID Death (ie. death by or with COVID).
Regardless, it's a lot, much like the seasonal flu.
The rate of deaths per million in unlocked down Sweden is still less than many European countries, but the earlier gap has lessened. It is now about 420/million. Belgium's rate, however, is about double that.
Interestingly, the World Health Organization WHO has issued a statement that Sweden serves as a model for dealing with the virus even though the country had little or no lockdowns except for senior's residences, nor did they (officially) practise Social Distancing. From the information I have, few have been wearing masks.
This would suggest social distancing might not help in the spread of the virus. Interestingly, science has never established that this is more effective in spreading the virus than herd-immunity. As for masks, some scientists claim that masks could actually hurt the population with hypoxia since immunity has less opportunity to build-up. In fact, many Immunologists suggest that breathing ones own CO2, rather than fresh oxygen, compromises one's immunity.
Certain regions in Canada such as Alberta report that that the average age of death due to the Corona Virus is 82 while the average life expectancy is 83. To me, that statistic should cause us to question the wisdom of the government's policy in devastated the economy, including the livelihood of tens of millions.
As for the young, with over 2 million school children in Canada, not one has died (to date) from the virus.
Okay, enough for now. More later. You might note how many videos YouTube has censored that I had posted on here. Very Orwellian!
April 25 National Post Article on non-lockdown Sweden. An interesting article on Swedens outlier approach where life is relatively normal. This was written a few weeks ago but I understand things are still more or less the same with the relative open policy.
My postscript to the article above: Today I noted there were deaths 217 virus deaths/million in (free) Sweden compared to 597 in locked-down Belgium. That's just 36%.
The other five countries I identified in my chart, including 26 in Belgium. However, the ration is less with all the western (locked-down) European countries averaged, yet the average is still lower.
I'm still impressed with how Sweden, after not going into lock-down, is just 1/2 to 2/3 of other countries deaths per million (depending on which countries you include in the calculations)
So why is the media so confident the virus is still going to hit Sweden hard, gleefully telling us they will be sorry for not complying with the FEARS of the rest of the world? Is it because they're too arrogant to admit they're wrong?
So far, the relatively low number of deaths per million are still holding. It would be impressive if Sweden was more or less the same as the others after remaining (mostly) open, but to be only half should be astonishing for the believers in social distancing. Rather, I've found many remain caught up in their fear narratives and seem to want Sweden to fail in their resistance to their mass hysteria.
I'm not saying the elder shouldn't be quarantined since they are the most vulnerable. In my mother's senior's residence, there are now 6 cases as of today, up from 2 on Saturday. This is serious, and of course, I'm concerned.
On the other hand, we have shut down our province of 3 million. There has only been one death of someone under 60 and that person had a severe case of asthma. Our lock-down didn't help him. And why are children not in school as they are in Sweden? They are immune. In fact, it's now estimated by antibody tests that 85% of the population that has tested positive for the virus didn't even know they had it since the symptoms are so weak or non-existent.
How many more people with lives destroyed by the lock-down. How many more will die as a result of suicides? Marriage destroyed? (I've witnessed this already). How many small businesses will not survive and how many job\s be lost. All in the name of 'safety' and protecting ourselves from ourselves with extreme and unnecessary laws.
April 22 Does the virus lockdown work? It is 'science'. So far, the latest statistics seem to say no.

The bottom line is that this is a manufactured panic. Figures have been thrown about by Anthony Fauci—and Bill Gates is right in there too—that bear no relationship to the science, IGNORE the fact that people die every year and pretend there is a significant crisis.
Fauci gets a LOT of money remember, if he can keep people trapped until the CDC gets a vaccine to force on us.
WE HAVE IMMUNE SYSTEMS DON’T WE? Mother Nature knows better than the jerks in the WHO, CDC, NIH, etc. The over-reaction panic HAS to stop.
As of now, we have figures that state, as clearly as language can possibly state, it’s time to STOP this madness. All go back to work TOMORROW. You are at no new risk, no higher level of threat. In fact, COVID-19 is tame, as I’ve been saying for weeks.
Your chance of dying of COVID-19? About 0.03%. Way less than the chance of your being killed or injured on the roads (0.5% of all deaths). Yet we don’t lock down cities and ban cars.
Get the REAL figures from a nice ER doctor, who talks more sense than all the politicians and medical pseuds put together (and by the way, he’s using OFFICIAL figures, not some he made up himself, like Fauci and Gates!)
To Your Good Health,
Prof. Keith Scott-Mumby
THE DATA IS IN --- STOP THE PANIC AND END THE TOTAL ISOLATION
Scott W. Atlas, MD, is the David and Joan Traitel Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution and the former chief of neuroradiology at Stanford University Medical Center.
The tragedy of the COVID-19 pandemic appears to be entering the containment phase. Tens of thousands of Americans have died, and Americans are now desperate for sensible policymakers who have the courage to ignore the panic and rely on facts. Leaders must examine accumulated data to see what has actually happened, rather than keep emphasizing hypothetical projections; combine that empirical evidence with fundamental principles of biology established for decades, and then thoughtfully restore the country to function.
Five key facts are being ignored by those calling for continuing the near-total lockdown.
Fact 1: The overwhelming majority of people do not have any significant risk of dying from COVID-19. The recent Stanford University antibody study now estimates that the fatality rate if infected is likely 0.1 to 0.2 percent, a risk far lower than previous World Health Organization estimates that were 20 to 30 times higher and that motivated isolation policies.
In New York City, an epicenter of the pandemic with more than one-third of all U.S. deaths, the rate of death for people 18 to 45 years old is 0.01 percent, or 10 per 100,000 in the population. On the other hand, people aged 75 and over have a death rate 80 times that. For people under 18 years old, the rate of death is zero per 100,000.
Of all fatal cases in New York state, two-thirds were in patients over 70 years of age; more than 95 percent were over 50 years of age; and about 90 percent of all fatal cases had an underlying illness. Of 6,570 confirmed COVID-19 deaths fully investigated for underlying conditions to date, 6,520, or 99.2 percent, had an underlying illness. If you do not already have an underlying chronic condition, your chances of dying are small, regardless of age. And young adults and children in normal health have almost no risk of any serious illness from COVID-19.
Fact 2: Protecting older, at-risk people eliminates hospital overcrowding.
We can learn about hospital utilization from data from New York City, the hotbed of COVID-19 with more than 34,600 hospitalizations to date. For those under 18 years of age, hospitalization from the virus is 0.01 percent, or 11 per 100,000 people; for those 18 to 44 years old, hospitalization is 0.1 percent. Even for people ages 65 to 74, only 1.7 percent were hospitalized. Of 4,103 confirmed COVID-19 patients with symptoms bad enough to seek medical care, Dr. Leora Horwitz of NYU Medical Center concluded "age is far and away the strongest risk factor for hospitalization." Even early WHO reports noted that 80 percent of all cases were mild, and more recent studies show a far more widespread rate of infection and lower rate of serious illness. Half of all people testing positive for infection have no symptoms at all. The vast majority of younger, otherwise healthy people do not need significant medical care if they catch this infection.
Fact 3: Vital population immunity is prevented by total isolation policies, prolonging the problem.
We know from decades of medical science that infection itself allows people to generate an immune response — antibodies — so that the infection is controlled throughout the population by “herd immunity.” Indeed, that is the main purpose of widespread immunization in other viral diseases — to assist with population immunity. In this virus, we know that medical care is not even necessary for the vast majority of people who are infected. It is so mild that half of infected people are asymptomatic, shown in early data from the Diamond Princess ship, and then in Iceland and Italy. That has been falsely portrayed as a problem requiring mass isolation. In fact, infected people without severe illness are the immediately available vehicle for establishing widespread immunity. By transmitting the virus to others in the low-risk group who then generate antibodies, they block the network of pathways toward the most vulnerable people, ultimately ending the threat. Extending whole-population isolation would directly prevent that widespread immunity from developing.
Fact 4: People are dying because other medical care is not getting done due to hypothetical projections.
Critical health care for millions of Americans is being ignored and people are dying to accommodate “potential” COVID-19 patients and for fear of spreading the disease. Most states and many hospitals abruptly stopped “nonessential” procedures and surgery. That prevented diagnoses of life-threatening diseases, like cancer screening, biopsies of tumors now undiscovered and potentially deadly brain aneurysms. Treatments, including emergency care, for the most serious illnesses were also missed. Cancer patients deferred chemotherapy. An estimated 80 percent of brain surgery cases were skipped. Acute stroke and heart attack patients missed their only chances for treatment, some dying and many now facing permanent disability.
Fact 5: We have a clearly defined population at risk who can be protected with targeted measures.
The overwhelming evidence all over the world consistently shows that a clearly defined group — older people and others with underlying conditions — is more likely to have a serious illness requiring hospitalization and more likely to die from COVID-19. Knowing that, it is a commonsense, achievable goal to target isolation policy to that group, including strictly monitoring those who interact with them. Nursing home residents, the highest risk, should be the most straightforward to systematically protect from infected people, given that they already live in confined places with highly restricted entry.
The appropriate policy, based on fundamental biology and the evidence already in hand, is to institute a more focused strategy like some outlined in the first place: Strictly protect the known vulnerable, self-isolate the mildly sick and open most workplaces and small businesses with some prudent large-group precautions. This would allow the essential socializing to generate immunity among those with minimal risk of serious consequence, while saving lives, preventing overcrowding of hospitals and limiting the enormous harms compounded by continued total isolation. Let’s stop underemphasizing empirical evidence while instead doubling down on hypothetical models. Facts matter.

Below are the stats on Covid deaths and Case beginning April 12. The deaths per million remain between 53% to 66% in Sweden (depending on how many countries one includes in the calculations) compared to many of the neighbouring European counties which remain locked down. This is contrary to much of the misinformation out there. It seems many want Sweden to fail to conform to their fear-based narrative
Of course, the tide could turn against Sweden, but as of April 12 and 16th Sweden is still only about 50% + of the average of the other 5 European countries. However, it is higher than in Finland and Norway.

SUMMARY OF ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE
This the first in a series of five Elysium narrations regarding a young British philosopher named James Phillips who finds himself living in an altered state of reality while still remaining on earth.
After experiencing a near-fatal fall while climbing to the summit of a remote mountain in the Andes, James awakens in a new dimension. He soon encounters two mysterious beings who provide him with a very different perspective on the nature of his existence. Over the next year, before his body recovers from the coma, he is challenged to re-examine his understanding about life’s meaning and purpose far beyond anything he previously believed or could believe.
An engaging and sometime surreal adventure with intimations of impending romance, the narrative explores the most important questions about life, death, reality and our ultimate destiny.
The Plains of Elysium (Champs-Élysées) was described by Homer, Hesiod, Virgil and many other poets as the paradisiac afterlife realm reserved for heroes. As the title suggests, this is about a journey through a passage that leads towards Elysium’s exciting realm of existence.

VIDEO INTRODUCTION (ATTEMPT) TO SERIES
The following comments are excerpts from among the first readers including a number of Amazon five star reviews. To read the full reviews, go to READER REVIEWS on www.elysiumspassage.com or directly at https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/reader-reviews
"A delightful mix of fantasy, reality, conjecture and humour; Mr Meyers draws the reader into the story with a gentle narrative that captures the imagination, leaving one anxious to get to the next page drawing you into his exceptional world.”
"Quietly, gently, and without imposition, the Author unfolds the pages, creating an intricate, interlocking bridge spanning the chasm between mind and heart. Renewing, refreshing, restoring. In my bereavement, it was vigil and light…"
“Excellently written with an exceedingly deep understanding of this world and the next. The characters are very well written and engaging. I can't wait to complete this book!"
“Takes the reader on both a philosophical and spiritual journey, a journey that at times is both disquieting and tranquil. James, a British Philosopher can be irreverent and caustic, traits that should have left me cringing, but instead made me laugh out loud. Elysium’s Passage is a fun, enlightening and remarkable book.”
“This is a masterful fantasy, becoming a real possibility, as the reader is drawn into the story. The Summit leaves you anxious for the next book in the series, yet also leaves you totally satisfied with the world you have just visited. Genius! An exciting, yet calming, experience that is not to be missed."
"There was hardly a page on which I did not find at least one sentence worthy of hi-lighting for future reference. In addition, I thoroughly enjoyed the main character, James, whose personality and passionate verbal exchanges with the other characters, kept me coming back for more. I am reading the book for a second time while I wait for the next one in this series to be made available."
“N.G. Meyers has clearly put a great deal of research and thought into what the afterlife may look like and I like his perspective. It’s an altogether welcoming and exciting vision. The book gives one a great deal to think about and a reassuring confidence that the end of our lives is truly the beginning of life in the next. I highly recommend it."
"I am really enjoying your book, it’s fantastic! It is so incredible and diversified that I can’t really explain it to other people, so what I say is just read this book. Thank you so much for the blessings that you’ve given the world!"
“The humour interjected into a serious discussion makes me laugh out loud. Totally unexpected....l may be in the presence of at least a master, if not a genius. A fair ride into reality... seeking that which is unseen, yet absolutely real.”
“An engaging story of adventure embracing man's deepest desire to search for meaning and purpose, N.G. Meyers takes the reader on an adventurous thought-provoking journey. This book has substance. It is a perfect blend of adventure and fantasy combined with spiritual philosophy. It ignited my imagination. The author magically weaves a good story laced with wit and humour together with deep philosophical wisdom. This book has it all!”
“An evolution in thought is triggered by many fresh philosophical themes which could inspire readers to re-think their reality and former ideologies that have dictated their lives… the author fires readers’ imaginations to view what could be possible when spirit vacates the body.”
“This is the book spiritual seekers have been waiting for. For me, it granted a great read as well as increased inspiration to live every day with a heightened sense of purpose. I highly recommend it.
“The Summit is capable of hooking readers and luring them to search for Book 2 to discover more about Dr. Philip’s surreal trek into the mysterious unknown universe. This thick book is well worth the read and to share…”
“Mind-blowing statements and speculation (‘…everyone is a non-physical thought form conceived in the Mind of God, preserved for all eternity because God’s thoughts never die…’). Many will find Meyers’ journey up the Mountain intriguing—and possibly even life-changing.” (BLUEINK REVIEW)
“In its effort to grapple with fundamental questions about the meaning of life, it raises questions that have echoed throughout the ages, including about where we come from, where we are going, who we are.” (CLARION REVIEW)
