This article features a study done by a group headed by Sunetra Gupta, an Oxford theoretical epidemiologist. It concludes that the Coronavirus had already reached Great Britain in December of 2019, and that by mid-January half the population had been infected. Because it is a mild bug, there were no rushes to hospitals or pressure on the health care system. Gupta and her group our now going to do research in the general population to find out what percentage had it and got over it, and are now immune. If, as she suggests, immunity has reached 50%, then the pandemic is over.
I had a virus in January, probably this one. Our son had it too. But our wives did not get it, meaning they were asymptomatic, or already immune. If the latter, this is not a new virus. That is my suspicion, that the people behind the lock down and destruction of the economy have a political agenda, not a medical or public health one. They merely piggybacked on an existing bug.
And when I think about that agenda, it resembles Climate Change, to fundamentally alter our society, de-industrialize, stop flying places, and go back to a simpler lifestyle. After all, if these are the same forces pushing CO2 alarmism, they want to take us back to more poverty, less wealth, and less personal freedom. Fewer people. It is, as AB reminded us the other day, misanthropy. These people despise humanity. They cannot just kill us off, but think longer term, perhaps by year 2100 having achieved their goal.
These are creeps who make me sick inside. And they have power. Look around us!
Anyway, knowing it is not a medical agenda, that no lives are in danger other than those marginal cases already near their end, it is time to get on with our lives. It’s just cold and flu season, and it is nearing its end. If you have been in lock down, stop it! If you are afraid to touch another human, fine- you might freak them out too. Just do what I do on departing company with everyone, friends, family and strangers alike. I say “Stop being afraid. There is nothing to be afraid of.” They look at me weird, but maybe the message will catch on.
