Informed Consent?

What a fetid mess this whole COVID-19 p(l)andemic has become. More lockdowns and face muzzling which discredit their very effectiveness (since they obviously don’t work) and now a World Health Organization chief scientist Soumya Swaminathan suggesting that the long awaited vaccines won’t even be effective at stopping transmission.   Presumably this will be used as an excuse by Governments to keep returning to yet more lockdowns and face muzzling, while big-tech keeps on muzzling debate and potential dissent and big Pharma encourage their client politicians to mandate compulsory and regular vaccinations; albeit a clear infringement of universal human rights.  Into this mix, a recent Danish study suggesting that mask wearing was ineffective in reducing transmission of the virus to the wearer merely corroborates anecdotal evidence of comparative infection rates between US counties and the rising overall rates post mask mandates that this has become a politicised fixation rather than an effective preventative strategy.


For the UK, ONS data on weekly mortality across England & Wales is out today that confirms a rise in COVID-19 related deaths over the final quarter of the year, but with weekly average deaths where COVID-19 is NOT mentioned being down around -13%.  Drill down to the younger age groups and these trends are further exaggerated, with overall mortality in under 45’s actually down relative to the preceding years trend (2016-19), including only 20 below the age of 20 having COVID-19 even mentioned for the entire year to date.  When one considers these ONS statistics will include comorbidities and therefore will have been deaths WITH COVID-19 rather than necessarily FROM COVID-19, then once again we are left with an increasing divergence between what the data is suggesting about this supposed pandemic and the official narrative ahead of what is an experimental mRNA vaccination programme and what might also be regarded as attempts to coerce an increasingly sceptical public. As if on cue,  governments are reporting on a ‘New’ and more infectious strain of the COVID-19 virus, albeit without providing any accompanying data or analysis to support such a claim, or whether it is of lesser or greater health risk to accompany more lockdowns and threats of future restrictions, while also ramping up its vaccination campaign.


Overall deaths running at approx +10% above trend


So overall weekly deaths across England & Wales are up relative to trend for the “2nd Wave”, but by considerably less (under half) than during the first and not by much more than the standard deviation.  As with Wave 1, the rise into what is a normal seasonal spike in respiratory diseases is again mainly focused on the older age groups; those normally afflicted by co-morbidity and weakened immunity. Increased testing and a possible increase in false positives on the PCR tests may also by exaggerating the incidence of deaths being reported WITH COVID-19.  How many of these already low levels of younger deaths WITH Covid were in fact actually the result of entirely unconnected factors, such as traffic accidents or suicides are not reported, perhaps conveniently, albeit a total of only 20 deaths including a mention of Covid for the under 20 years age group for the entire year to date and only 117 if this age range is increased to 30 years of age, then the probable deaths FROM COVID-19 may well be statistically insignificant for younger healthier age groups.  As such, it may not be unreasonable for this demographic to regard the risk of an untried and only partially tested new vaccine that hijacks ones own DNA to outweigh the benefits. Indeed, this new mRNA approach to vaccine development must still be regarded as being in an experimental stage and as such ought to also to fall within the legal orbit of the Nuremberg code (article 6, section 3) and the subsequent UNESCO universal human rights declarations (1997, 2003 and again at the UNESCO. General Conference, 33rd, 2005) which also extended the principal more generally to medical interventions and requiring both an “individuals informed consent” as well as expressly forbidding this to be substituted by a collective or other authority.


“Article 6 – Consent

1. Any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention is only to be carried out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned, based on adequate information. The consent should, where appropriate, be express and may be withdrawn by the person concerned at any time and for any reason without disadvantage or prejudice.”

2. Scientific research should only be carried out with the prior, free, express and informed consent of the person concerned. The information should be adequate, provided in a comprehensible form and should include modalities for withdrawal of consent. Consent may be withdrawn by the person concerned at any time and for any reason without any disadvantage or prejudice. Exceptions to this principle should be made only in accordance with ethical and legal standards adopted by States, consistent with the principles and provisions set out in this Declaration, in particular in Article 27, and international human rights law.

3. In appropriate cases of research carried out on a group of persons or a community, additional agreement of the legal representatives of the group or community concerned may be sought. In no case should a collective community agreement or the consent of a community leader or other authority substitute for an individual’s informed consent.




Weekly deaths WITH Covid-19 (as tested)


Reading the hysteria from the media and what looks to be either an irresponsible, or incompetent handling by the Johnson government of the news release relating to the discovery of the ‘new’ strain, which has been used to justify more lockdowns over the hitherto ‘festive’ season as well as soften up the public to being vaccinated, one might well believe the moniker of “plague Island” for the British Isles.  Overall death rates for the productive section of under 45 year olds however, again would seem to belie this, with last weeks recorded deaths of 378 in England & Wales being just 3 more than the prior week and 29 (or -7%) below the average for the prior 4 years. Against a rising population, his would therefore represent and even more significant relative reduction and hardy commensurate with the draconian reductions in personal liberties or penury and future constraints in consumption that will be required to fund it.


Fewer under 45’s are dying despite the COVID-19 pandemic


COVID-19 stuffing the death stats might help the lockdown and vaccination propaganda, but starts to look increasingly ridiculous when these figures are stripped out from the overall mortality numbers to arrive at the death rates implied therefore for those without COVID-19.



Apart from COVID-19 are we getting healthier?


On this basis, England & Wales has experienced a simply amazing reduction in underlying mortality rates, notwithstanding much of the NHS has been reassigned to dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and which has included significant reductions in unrelated procedures, consultations and preventative interventions.  Are we really back to 17th century medicine, where survival rates were inversely proportional to seeing a doctor or ending up in hospital? For the moment however, 1984 would seem to be more appropriate, as perhaps exemplified by the recent arrest of a Gloucestershire woman for posting a video of empty wards at the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital (the region now in Tier 4 lockdown).  Needless to say, YouTube has colluded with the suppression of what must be an embarrassing revelation for the UK Government and taken the video evidence down. Fortunately, big-tech censorship isn’t as effective yet as they might have hoped and the genie is out and won’t go back into its bottle.
