Covid Facts You Didn’t Know and Why you Should Protest Lockdowns

Submitted by Unknown

Keeping this purely fact-based with no emotional argument — logic is needed in this time. This is not a conventional opinion piece, but a summary of all the reasons why we shouldn’t have lockdowns. This piece although written in a Barbadian context can be extrapolated globally. 

  1. A positive PCR test ALONE does not mean that you have Covid 19. 

Source the World Health Organization:

https://www.who.int/news/item/20-01-2021-who-information-notice-for-ivd-users-2020-05

They (WHO) changed the guidance the day of the USA Inauguration day. 

A positive test ONLY means there are traces of  virus RNA in your nasal passages or in the oral cavity. It doesn’t mean that there is a clinical infection. 

  1. There is currently uncritical acceptance for widespread state violations of Basic Human Rights.

(For convenience I’ve listed the most relevant Human Rights being trampled at the end)

  1. The lockdowns are unconstitutional for most global democracies:

You can see Senator Caswell’s article here:https://barbadostoday.bb/2021/02/19/btcolumn-unconstitutional-lockdown/

Netherlands court has stated that the lockdowns are unconstitutional:

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-56084466

  1. The reporting of covid related deaths make no sense to many observers.

Real sources are difficult to come by simply because as noted in point 1 having a virus in your body doesn’t mean you are infected with said virus. The best way to think about this would be to use logic and compare different USA states or various countries to each other. For example many have joked that the UK lockdowns were so effective that at the same time Sweden’s numbers were reduced. 

Different Source:

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-northern-ireland-foyle-west-54731262

“The Department of Health includes anyone who had died within 28 days of receiving a positive test for Covid-19 as a coronavirus-related death.” 

This effectively means you could have stage 4 lung cancer and if you happened to also “test positive” for the virus (not necessarily infected) then you would be classified as a covid death.

  1. Mental health problems are on the increase globally 

Source (local): https://barbadostoday.bb/2021/02/19/mental-health-chief-worries-young-people-not-coping/

  1. The traditional media has a vested interest in fear mongering since with fear their views go up. This has driven this PCR pandemic, when Trump went against the media hype it was the reason for opposing media houses to effectively dig in and have a death counter and a case counter on every day. You can draw your opinion … just stating what should be factually obvious here.

This article was anonymously submitted in this format so persons could not strawman any of the facts or attack the author. Kindly note that doctors and Mia are human beings and they can both be wrong. Also kindly note that many doctors globally question lockdowns: https://gbdeclaration.org/view-signatures/ .

If someone tells you not to question science then it isn’t science. A doctor taking out pieces of a mentally ill person’s brain was considered science and best practice in the past.

 

Finally:

Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

https://www.un.org/en/universal-declaration-human-rights/

Human Rights being trampled in Barbados and globally:

 

Article 5.

 

No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. (Self isolation is a recognised form of torture)

 

Article 9.

No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

 

Article 13. 

(1) Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state.

(2) Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.

Article 20.

(1) Everyone has the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and association.

(2) No one may be compelled to belong to an association.

Article 23.

(1) Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favourable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment.

Article 26.

(1) Everyone has the right to education. Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages. Elementary education shall be compulsory. Technical and professional education shall be made generally available and higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit.

 

N.B The fact that none of our elected officials or vying oppositions could point this out means that we could as well be ruled by sheep. Oh wait !

  • I ain’t no lockdownologist if such a specialist exist, but let me share with you what i see as the results of these Lock downs.

    Before the stores were closed on a weekend and the store hours shortened, I could walk right into both cost u less and Massy Warrens with no lines and no fuss. There was no traffic in and out the carparks and all was well. Then came the weekend Lock downs. Brugadung just so the lines get long as hell and the crowds all outside line up up under one another. Yes I pass by Popular and see it with my own 2 eyes.

    So from a layman my conclusion is all the lockdown does in increase the density of shoppers on a Thursday, Friday and Monday. So what then is really the purpose of a lockdown? Should we not in fact do the opposite and open the weekends and in so doing remove the heavy shopping density on Thursday, Fridays and Mondays?

    Then we are told to work from home which is a good idea. But guess what if I needed a computer cable every computer store was closed. Also dont let the cell phone brek down neither cause all them cell stores did close too.
    So the lockdown logic and the ability to work from home logic, when tested in real life terms didn’t seem to work so good. So what is the alternative to devastating the economy once more then with a lockdown?

    Well lets start by mandating masks wearing with an immediate fine of $500 for each offense. Let us open the retail places from 8 to 6 7 days a week and ensure that protocols are followed. Finally let’s turn the security of the private quarantine hotels over to the defence force.

    If we accept that lockdown result when the enforcement of protocols fail, then is a Lock down not a case of closing the barn door after the horse has bolted? Just throwing out the observations of an independent thinking Individual I now leave others to share their views.

    I have alot of time for Minister Bostic and the calm way he handles things, but I think the desired result is not the actual result.

    You can think that if you close doors traffic will drop but it doesn’t work that way. For instance if you have water flowing through a large funnel and you plug it, then yes no water passes through the funnel, but when you unplug the funnel what happens? The backed up water comes out along with all that is behind it until normal flow resumes.

    The solution is to mandate mask wearing and enforce rigidly the protocols. As I said stop and think how smoothly before the changes the traffic was flowing at the supermarkets, then compare it with the last 2 weeks. From the time people felt their access to free shopping was impaired, the impulse to overshop cut in. It’s a human survival instinct like if you knew you had to cross a desert you would stock up on water and food.

    Let us hope that common sense prevails going forward and the supermarkets are returned to 7 days a week and other supporting sectors are reopened under enforced protocols.

    I would say we did a reasonably good job up until the end of December, however we should of closed our borders from the first week in January.

    The reason I have said this now and before is the South African strain was first found on October 20th after presenting itself in a community in The Nelson Mandela Bay area. By the end of October the virus was recorded in other areas of South Africa. By late November this strain started popping up in other countries and if you recall shortly after that the UK suspended flights between South Africa and there. Shortly after that other countries followed. Around that same time the UK also started recording cases of the more contagious variant if you remember as well.

    With the UK being our major travel destination I thought we should of followed suit and closed our borders then as well. Now some will find all kind of foolish reasons why this couldn’t happen ranging from ” what you would of do with the Brits here” and a whole other bunch of nonesence excuses why it couldn’t happen. But could Christ David if we going to close the 1st day in January, a little common sence would of dictate we would of given all involved notice of this. We would hardly of wake up today and say we closing borders tomorrow would we? The Brits and the rest would of had time to prepare repatriation flights for the few tourist that was here. After all I hear the BHTA say January was down by 95%, so we would of hardly of need 10 jumbos to tek home de few that was here. We also know this last spike was caused from imported sources, after all we was covid free for months.

    Now them is the facts there. I leaving the party loyalist and the opposition stalwarts to spin the political balls, I done say my piece based on the facts as reported by the CDC and the UK MOH. Wunna could tek it from here now and have a blessed good night!

  • Govt looks to quarantine-approved hotels
    GOVERNMENT is hoping to establish a programme to keep larger households in the country safe from the COVID-19 virus while they await test results.
    Minister of Health and Wellness Jeffrey Bostic last night revealed that discussions would start today about how quarantine-approved hotels could be used to accommodate those who live in crowded conditions across the country and are awaiting results.
    The aim, he said, is to keep those citizens from contracting the COVID-19 virus, as the island continues to grapple with a second spike that has already led to 31 deaths in the country this year. Last year, seven people died in Barbados from COVID-19-related complications.
    Bostic said it was the least Government could do as it continues to source around 40 000 more doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine in an attempt to reach herd immunity from the virus in Barbados.
    “The Government is adamant that where we need to step in to ensure that you can be kept safe and those around you can equally be kept safe, we are prepared to do that,” he added.
    He revealed the numbers Barbados has been dealing with in recent days and weeks were unprecedented.
    “We are continuously working to reduce the wait time and have augmented the transportation system. There will be more buses pressed into action so that we can improve on the times that people are waiting before collection. The Government rolled out its inoculation programme last week, vaccinating more than 15 000 people, most of them front-line workers and elderly Barbadians,” he added.
    The minister said even yesterday’s numbers caused him great concern and he was far from satisfied with the slow decrease in new infections of COVID-19.

  • US hit with half million virus deaths
    WASHINGTON – The United States faces a dark milestone despite a recent decline in COVID-19 cases as it marks a staggering half million deaths this week, nearly a year after the novel coronavirus pandemic upended the country with duelling public health and economic crises.
    While the number of COVID-19 cases fell for the fifth straight week and officials scrambled to inoculate the population, the nation reached 500 000 deaths from the highly infectious respiratory disease.
    “It’s nothing like we’ve ever been through in the last 102 years since the 1918 influenza pandemic… It really is a terrible situation that we’ve been through – and that we’re still going through,” Dr Anthony Fauci, White House COVID-19 medical adviser and the nation’s top infectious disease official, told CNN’s State of the Union programme yesterday.
    The White House has said it will memorialise the moment but had no immediate comment yesterday about its plans. President
    Joe Biden last month observed America’s COVID-19 deaths on the eve of his inauguration with a sundown ceremony at the Lincoln Memorial’s Reflecting Pool.
    More than 28 million COVID cases have rocked the United States and just over 500 000 have died, even as daily average deaths and hospitalisations have fallen to the lowest levels since before the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. The virus took a full year off the average life expectancy in the United States, the biggest decline since World War II.
    While the decline “is really terrific … we are still at a level that’s very high”, Fauci said in a separate interview on NBC News’ Meet the Press programme. “We want to get that baseline really, really, really low before we start thinking that we’re out of the woods.”
    Fauci told CNN that Americans may still need masks in 2022 even as other measures to stop the virus’ spread become increasingly relaxed and more vaccines are administered, and they may need a booster shot depending on how
    variants emerge.
    Less than 15 per cent of the US population has received at least one vaccine dose, with nearly 43 million getting at least one shot and nearly 18 million getting a second shot, statistics show. (Reuters)

    They have zero deaths, we have 31.

    Why????

    Here’s my theory.

    Having hiked there in 1998 and seen the “water works” at Laudat, I know that its water supply has to be one of the naturally purest in the world.

    Laudat 1200 feet above sea level where few people live.

    There is both hot (geothermal) water and cold water.

    The water is literally straight from the heavens and what isn’t is boiled courtesy of God!!

    Up there is cold as sh!te by Bajan standards.

    It has the highest rainfall in the Caribbean so sheer volume alone dilutes any impurities and renders the probability of finding them in drinking water below close to zero.

    So if there are viruses in the water, chances of getting one is slim, consistent with the tiny number of cases which HAVE NOT SPREAD AND MULTIPLIED.

    Looks like they will be exploiting the geothermal water soon.

But we find that there may be an outbreak at a workplace or community and it is contained without any change in the treatment of the water. Instead it is contained by isolating the infected, removing their breath from the atmosphere.

    This virus is present in the nasal passages. Most of the spread would therefore be expected to occur by this route. It is only obvious that if we breathe out and spit out the virus others around us will breathe it in.

    This would not rule out lesser spread by other methods.

  • Too bad that our mini-lockdown keeps us out of the sun precisely at the times when meaningful Vitamin D creation by natural means is possible, i.e. sometime between 9am and 3pm at our latitude (varying a bit as season change – shorter time windows in winter vs longer windows in summer), and of course the darker your skin, the more time in the sunlight is needed to create the same Vitamin D levels as a light-skinned person.

    Spanish study (still waiting for peer review) shows that Vitamin D supplementation of hospitalized Covid-19 patients reduced ICU Admissions by 82% and deaths by 64%.

    Vitamin D Supplementation Reduces COVID-19 Deaths by 64%

    Analysis by Dr. Mercola

    STORY AT-A-GLANCE
    A Spanish study found giving supplemental vitamin D3 (calcifediol) to hospitalized patients with PCR-confirmed COVID-19 — in addition to standard care — reduced ICU admissions by 82% and mortality by 64%

    People who already had higher vitamin D at baseline were 60% less likely to die

    Many are now calling for official vitamin D recommendations to be issued by their governments

    Other recent research found vitamin D is a contributing factor to COVID-19 outbreaks and infection severity. Surges in daily positive tests during the fall of 2020 in 18 European countries linearly correlate with latitude, and, hence, sun exposure and vitamin D levels

    One of the reasons vitamin D is so important against COVID-19 has to do with its influence on T cell responses. Vitamin D receptor signals regulate T cell responses and therefore play an important role in your body’s defense against viral and bacterial infections

    SNIP

    Renewed Calls for Vitamin D Recommendations

    In response to the Spanish findings, British MP David Davis tweeted that “The findings of this large and well conducted study should result in this therapy being administered to every COVID patient in every hospital in the temperate latitudes,” adding that:6

    “Since the study demonstrates that the clear relationship between vitamin D and COVID mortality is causal, the U.K. government should increase the dose and availability of free vitamin D to all the vulnerable groups. These approaches will save many thousands of lives. They are overdue and should be started immediately.”

    Many others are also calling for official vitamin D recommendations to be issued by their governments. Among them, Emer Higgins,7 a member of the Irish political party Fine Gael, who called on the Irish health minister, Stephen Donnelly, to include vitamin D supplementation in its “Living with COVID-19” strategy, slated for launch at the end of February 2021.

    Higgins leaned on evidence from the Irish Covit-D Consortium,8 which shows vitamin D helps optimize your immune response. “There is negligible risk in this strategy and potentially a massive gain,” she said. According to the Covit-D Consortium, the nutrient can lower the risk of death from COVID-19 in the elderly by as much as 700%.9

I have two phone appts. next month after I complete blood work etc. I have seen my dentist twice but he was closed for six months, since then he has installed equipment to take away droplets etc. and is masked up, additionally I had to complete a phone questionnaire a few days before and when I arrived at the office the receptionist had to unlock the door; take my temperature and I had to complete another questionnaire to ensure that things haven’t changed.

  • Finally, Finally something posted that is not the WHO CDC and Government and China Propaganda we have been fed since March 2020.
    Every point here is valid.
    They failed to mention the infection fatality rate currently is estimated at 0.2%, with a proven/observed low of 0.01% in Iceland and 0.17% on cruise ships

    The simple fact is that politicians in March of 2020 through a disinformation twitter campaign out of China that was promoting lockdown with literally thousands of twitter bots and millions of tweets, hoodwinked the Western Politicians into fearing a common respiratory cold virus and instituting draconian lockdowns.
    Not to mention these leaders didn’t even follow the measured and proven Pandemic Plans that they had in place for the past 15 years. Following this gigantic boondoggle no Western Leader wishes to step back and admit their error. When it comes to the Health Advisors, the Chief Medical Officers and even our local BAMP none of them either at the top levels wishes to admit error.
    It is hard to believe that none of them can come out with the simple statement – “We were wrong, Covid 19 is a respiratory cold virus that can prove to have serious effects on a minor portion of the population and for an extremely small percentile of people can lead to fatal consequences when various co-morbidities are taken into effect” There is a subset of the population, probably 0.2% of people who should be careful and take precautions, everyone else on the Planet at worst will have a bad flu and at best not even know they have any sort of infection.
    Sars-Cov2 is not a hoax, Covid is not a hoax – but the incredible idiotic over-reaction by most Western Governments to this disease was driven by the hoax that it was the “black plague” or that 4% of humanity would die and that all ages groups were equally susceptible to death from infection.
    It is 14 months now, we all know the real facts and real statistics, 99.999% of people have nothing to fear. There is absolutely no reason to or justification to shut down schools, travel, economies to prevent the spread of a cold virus.

    I congratulate the writer for this and Barbados Underground for posting the proper view and real statistics associated with this disease.

    As an aside the Prison situation in Barbados is the perfect example. Health authorities are patting themselves on the back for handling the “outbreak” at the prison. Outbreak of a cold! Lets look at the facts. 363 people associatied with Dodd’s tested positive with PCR for the Sars-Cov2 Virus. It is not a huge leap to make that they were all under the age of 60 and probably 99% under the age of 50. The government stated one – YES ONE – prisoner who has severe asthma required actual care for the Covid illness that the virus lead to. The remainder were asymptomatic or had a sniffle. Within 10 days 98% of them tested negative for the Sars-Cov2 virus. There was not magic here or yeoman’s labour here. This cohort of people as with 99.999% of humanity had zero chance of any ill effects from Sars-Cov2 and this small isolated case study is perfect proof of it.

    Open the country, open tourism fully, don’t put healthy people in Harrison Point Isolation facility and focus health care on the people who actually get serious Covid-19. Lastly accept the reality that a 90 year old, and 80 year old even a 60 year old with a previous stroke or heart attack or 50 pounds overweight or all 3 combined has a chance of dying from Covid but also from the Flu. We have a robust health system to treat these people.
    Their living and dying is not the be all and end all of Barbados, you don’t close schools and the economy for the impossibility of preventing anyone from dying from a single potential infection.

    458 cases in one day suggests the testing was localised.

    Localised suggest there was some sort of super spreader.

    Localised also means same water supply.

    The 5 deaths are separate unless they happen to have occurred in the same locale.

    If they did, then I would be looking at the water supply for that area and advising residents to boil their water.
