The Covid Prison

England is now a vast concentration camp

I am not a number, I am a free man

There is an insidious cloud hanging over England, a pernicious prison created by our own government’s spineless belief in a bunch of discredited scientists and health officials.  This has been a year-and-a-half of chaos for the British People extended to August the 14th by inexplicable ‘test-and-trace’ and self-isolation rules.  It’s all been a total waste of time and treasure.

Theoretically I am free to go almost anywhere in the UK and most of Europe, but should I find myself anywhere near anyone who has tested positive for the coronavirus then I will be required by the government to go into strict self-quarantine for 10 or 14 days ~ despite the fact that I have been vaccinated and more than likely would never test positive for the coronavirus.  And, because of the £37 billion thrown away on the pointless ‘test and trace’ system this grossly inept government will make damn certain that I follow it’s stupid covid laws, regulations, and rules.

Let me give you an example of how insane this all is.  All of France is now off-limits to we English because there has been an ‘outbreak’ of the coronavirus on Reunion Island, which is a tiny scrap of land, in the middle of the Indian Ocean, 6,000 miles from Paris.  The population of the island is some 860,000, of which some 3,000 have tested positive for the virus.  It’s lunatic madness.

If I go into a bar or restaurant here I am supposed to scan my smartphone so that if anyone connected with the place tests positive for the virus, then the government can tell me to self-isolate.  I can’t sensibly book a flight to anywhere because it could be cancelled at short notice, and anywhere I go might be put onto the no-go list at the drop of a hat.

Last week the government here told 1,500,000 people that they must self-isolate.  No wonder Boris Johnson is pushing to be the most unpopular Prime Minister ever.

Covid Testing Shambles

order, counter order, disorder, fucking shambles

The number of people testing positive for the coronavirus in England has reached  about 11,000 a day, which is less than 1% of all those tested in a day.

The most common covid test is the ‘lateral flow’ which gives a false positive in 60% of cases.

The allegedly more accurate PCR test gives a false positive a third of the time.

The estimate of possible deaths by covid used by the UK government to justify lockdown is known to be hopelessly inaccurate, inflating the numbers by 90%.

Vaccination against the virus has been found to be 96% effective, but the government is willfully ignoring these numbers when deciding on testing, lockdown, travel, and quarantine regulations.

Coronavirus Testing in schools will be axed due to the mass disruption it’s causing.

It could be August before English tourists are free to return to the UK without testing and quarantine.  But back among ‘them, the elite’ all those attending the G7 summit in Cornwall suffered no inconveniences at all, and thousands of soccer officials with their hangers-on will be allowed into England without quarantine to attend a couple of football matches.

The former head of the pointless, inefficient, useless, wasteful, vastly expensive, (£37 billion), covid Test and Trace programme, Baroness Dido Harding, wants to be the next boss of the National Health Service.  She is a ‘friend’ of our pointless, inefficient, useless, wasteful, vastly expensive Prime Minister Boris Johnson, so she could get the job.

Meanwhile, the current head of our £201 billion a year Nation Health Service, Simon Stevens,  has revealed himself to be a smug, smarmy, self-satisfied git in a televised interview by Sky News political editor Beth Rigby.  It seems that this wassock  thinks he’s a government minister and not just some over-paid bureaucrat.  Stevens makes a good foil for that other wassock Health Minister Matt Hancock.

You Couldn’t Make It Up.

Coronavirus Testing

order, counter-order, disorder

somewhere over the rainbow the coronavirus actually exists

I just walked around the marina where I live.  There is a huge area where the army have set up a mass COVID-19 testing station.  At 16:30 this evening there was nobody waiting to be tested.  WTF is going on?  This is not the first time this mass testing station has had zero ‘patients’ all day.  What a total waste of valuable resources.

Everything you read in the media about coronavirus testing, test and trace, and probably vaccines is a complete lie.  I have the evidence of my own eyes.  All day today a squad from the Army Medical Corps wasting their time to bolster Boris Johnson’s ego,

Pathetic.

COVID-19 Testing

trying something or someone to see if the rules are being obeyed

Out on my walk this morning I saw that a mass testing operation for COVID-19 had been set up in one of the local car parks, (otherwise completely unused).  These testing stations are manned by heath workers and the army, and each one is a pretty big operation.

In the half hour or so I had this testing facility in sight, not one single car entered the parking lot so that the driver could be tested for the coronavirus.  Goes completely against the rule of build it and they will come.  This time nobody turned up at all.

I’m utterly unsurprised.  There is very little personal benefit to going through all the hassle and discomfort of the whole ‘getting tested’ process.  In fact there are a lot of individual downsides to having a coronavirus test, and I speak as a guy who has both had the virus and been tested more than once.  (After the fact.)

Being tested will not stop you contracting COVID-19, nor will it aid your recovery in any way at all.  Being tested is just likely to make you sicker because it is very likely you will to told to undergo a period of self-isolation at home, which is bad.  What is worse it that you will be carted off to hospital and stuck in a bed in a place that is rife with the damn virus.  If you are sick, (not dying), then the last thing you need is to be stuck next to a lot of other sick people.

The very best thing you can do to ameliorate any personal effects of the coronavirus is to get out in the fresh air and sunshine, which the virus hates.  The sunshine will boost your vitamin D, which the virus hates.  The fresh air will flush out your lungs, so FFS do not wear a mask.  However, stay away from other people, you don’t know if they’re a carrier, and neither will they.

When you’re out there get some exercise ~ don’t just sit in the sunshine, complete the 10,000 steps a day challenge.  Exercise will improve your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health, and if you’re stronger and fitter you will more easily fight off the virus if you get it.

The fresh air, sunshine, and exercise will also give you an appetite ~ believe me, it you get the damn virus you will not want to eat, and even less so if all you do all day is sit in front of the TV.  With your meals take a good and appropriate range of vitamin and mineral supplements.  Your body will need these to fight off the virus.

Trust me, for your own personal health, being tested for COVID-19 is the last thing you want.

Virus Testing in England

across the UK there is no effective testing programme for the voronavirus

Yesterday a friend of mine was told to go to a COVID-19 testing centre in a hospital car park about an hour’s drive away.  After she had struggled to get there, queued in line in the car park for another hour, she was told there were no testing kits left and sent home in tears.

My friend Pam is in a high risk group because of her chronic asthma, and is extremely worried about this pandemic.

Personally, I have been very ill on-and-off since my birthday over a month ago.  I haven’t been tested, haven’t been in hospital, and have no support at home ~ other than my friend Pam who buys groceries for me and leaves them outside my building’s street door.  I am officially quarantined.

The UK has the third highest COVID-19 death rate after the USA and Italy.  Some 27,000 have died here from the coronavirus.

Doesn’t look like we will be getting out of lockdown any time soon.
