When Is a Pandemic No Longer a Pandemic?

alicespringstomind

Streptococcus pneumoniae (known as “pneumococcus“) is a bacteria that causes diseases such as middle ear infections, pneumonia, meningitis and septicaemia. It can cause fatal disease if not treated early enough with effective antibiotics. WHO estimate that around half a million lives are lost due to this bacteria each year. It is the leading cause of pneumonia deaths worldwide, mostly in children under the age of 5yo. Pneumococcus lives in the nose and throat of most of us at times, usually causing no symptoms or disease, but transmitting between us. In some studies up to 76% of children test positive to the bacteria without symptoms; the rate is lower in adults, but between 5% to 20%. It transmits by droplets and direct contact with infected secretions.

This is one example of many micro-organisms that transmit in this way. It is how respiratory-transmitted organisms survive and move amongst their human…

COVID-19 – Evidence Over Hysteria, by Aaron Ginn

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

COVID-19 – Evidence Over Hysteria

Update from Zero Hedge:

Update (3/22/2020): After falling under much scrutiny, Medium has deleted Ginn’s post. Of note, Ginn is a former 2012 digital campaign staffer with no background in medicine or infectious disease.

We are leaving it up for anyone who wants to read, while also including a thread from a biologist who debunked it. Click on the tweet below to read.

SLL will also leave this up for its  readers, as well as access to the purported debunking from Carl T. Bergstrom below. Take it with a grain of salt; the original articles makes salient points, many of which are not addressed by Bergstrom at all. He’s also heavy into sarcasm and ad hominem attacks.

Coronavirus Video: Australians Chant “Freedom!” as Market is Shut Down by COVID Riot Cops, by Paul Joseph Watson

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

This kind of display is encouraging. The world needs a lot more of them. From Paul Joseph Watson at summitnews.com:


A remarkable video out of Australia shows people chanting “freedom!” as a food market is forcefully shut down by COVID riot cops.

The clip shows dozens of police on horseback and armed with riot gear facing off against market sellers and customers.

Chants of “freedom, freedom!” then break out as one officer directs the riot police to move in.

Cops armed with shields then begin charging and pushing people away while one man is singled out and dragged away by officers.

The state of Victoria has enforced one of the most draconian coronavirus lockdowns in the developed world, with authorities giving themselves the powers to enter homes without a warrant and also seize people’s children.

As we highlighted earlier this month, a pregnant woman was arrested in her home…

“Whom the gods (rulers) would destroy, they first make mad”

The Truth Shall Set You Free

The above quote (with the exception of the word “rulers”) is from the poem The Masque of Pandora by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

The poet could have been describing the present state of our world since the discovery/manufacture/release/invention/….. (which,if any, applies?) of the novel virus Covid 19.

The rulers truly are driving people mad!

Ponder if you will our world post-March 2020 and the plethora of conflicting, contradictory regulations.

Total lockdowns, easing of lockdowns, localised lockdowns, threats of more total lockdowns.

Stay home then don’t stay home.

Don’t visit relatives or friends then do visit relatives and friends.

Form social “bubbles” then burst your bubbles (too many people in the bubble).

Work from home then don’t work from home and return to your “covid-secure” offices.

Don’t eat out then do eat out to help (the wrecked economy) out.

Keep 2 metre distance. No, keep 1 metre distance but 2 is preferable.

HITCHENS ON ORWELL, HUXLEY AND THE THOUGHT POLICE

Gatwick City Times

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-8112819/PETER-HITCHENS-fear-dissents-PC-visited-Thought-Police.html

PETER HITCHENS: I fear anyone who dissents from today’s pervasive culture of political correctness will be visited by the Thought Police… so, how long until anyone who writes an article like this is dragged away in handcuffs?

It was a bright, cold day in Oxford and everywhere I looked, rainbow flags flapped and fluttered in the sharp wind.

They flew from the ancient colleges along the High Street. They flew from the Town Hall.

And what they said to me was ‘Your side has lost. There is nothing you can do about it.’

As I write this, I know that an apprentice Thought Police officer will certainly copy and store my words, to use them against me at some point in the future.

Like the banners in Nineteen Eighty-Four proclaiming ¿WAR IS PEACE¿, ¿FREEDOM IS SLAVERY¿ and ¿IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH¿, they dare you to object, even by a twitch of the jaw muscles. Pictured, this is a scene from 1984 in which Harold is taken into room 101, the torture chamber, by the thought police

IN BRIEF

  • The Facts:Renowned Canadian constitutional lawyer, Rocco Galati, sits down with journalist Rajie Kabli to discuss a lawsuit filled against the Canadian Government for extreme COVID-19 measures.
  • Reflect On:Why are alternative perspectives being censored? Why are so many doctors and scientists presenting their opinions and research being completely ignored by mainstream media? Why are people made to point fingers at those who raise concerns?

Freedom focus Day3 – is this why the State is really blowing £100 billion on Covid19 testing?

The Slog

As with most things involving Whitehall, it looks as though the Great Test Drive is somewhere between anarchic and shambolic. Nevertheless, the role of the Secret State is clear enough in the carte blanche powers apparent in the 2020 Coronavirus Act.


Provision 24 of the Act is clear evidence of, at the very least, using the excuse of Coronavirus to collect yet more ID information on all of us.

In accordance with any unnamed security situation (and anti-terrorism acts going back 35 years) DNA profiles may be retained indefinitely……’before being destroyed’. But as the only time-limit is “indefinitely”, GCHQ or whoever can always drum up an excuse and hang on to them. This is the thin edge of a very fat wedge. Indeed, sub-section 2 adds ‘The Secretary of State may make regulations extending, for up to six months, the period for which the fingerprints and DNA profiles may be…
