National Shock as Bout of Sanity Breaks Out: Doctors call for ‘utterly meaningless’ daily figures to be dropped

category national | rights, freedoms and repression | news report author Friday September 04, 2020 17:30author by 1 of indy Report this post to the editors

Daily briefings are causing unnecessary anxiety and should be switched to a weekly basis, number of doctors argue

The country must be in a state of shock now that some sanity in the Covid-19 situation has broken out. The Irish Times of all places has actually published an article with this headline. It is unheard of:

Covid-19: Doctors call for ‘utterly meaningless’ daily figures to be dropped

We have known for some time that many doctors know the whole thing on reporting daily cases (as well as previously locking up the healthy and forcing them to wear masks), for a diseases that about 95% of the time only kills those who are very ill already, is a total farce. However mainly due to watching their backs, careers, being social ostracised or downright cowardice, have been afraid to speak out. Now, at long last the first tentative steps have been taken. Perhaps because they realize the entire medical establishment is rapidly losing all credibility because it has gone along with this farce and most people are obeying the rules just because everyone else does. And this brings us to this historic announcement today:

A number of doctors have called for an end to the daily Covid-19 figures, describing them as a “self-perpetuating cycle of misery”. ..“causing huge anxiety” and is “utterly meaningless”.

Despite all this good news there is one downside and that is:

Dr O Tuathail added no European country makes daily announcements anymore about Covid-19 numbers.

He recommended the daily briefing be changed to a comprehensive weekly briefing.

Actually they should stop them all together. The test is pointless and the test itself is unreliable and as described in this report: Up to 90% of people who test positive for Covid barely carry any virus & are not contagious. Every stat about the disease is bogus

The rest of the report says:

Dr O Tuathail said Covid-19 is likely to be around for two to four years and that releasing daily figures is leading to people becoming “obsessed” with the figures to the detriment of the rest of their lives.

.....

“Moving from a daily to a weekly announcement would help with people’s anxiety. People know that Covid is around. They know that cases are climbing. My phone lights up every single day at 6pm. That causes anxiety.”

That last bit says it all.

After the 6pm news people are so terrified each evening, they start phoning him. By all accounts that fits the definition of terrorism which is: To terrorize the population with the goal of political change. -That change of course is the Great Reset that the World Economic Forum (WEF) is planning in an upcoming conference in Jan 2021, mandatory Covid-19 and Flu vaccines every year, Health-Id to be presented in shops, masks, pods, social distancing, treating people like lepers, travel restrictions, holidaying restrictions, removal of all civil liberties, tracing Apps and probably cashless society. The economic fallout is still ahead

Essentially what has happened is that they realize if they want to achieve their ultimate goals they need to do it in a less scary way but the goals remain unchanged. It remains to be seen if the apparatus of authoritarian control is relaxed and removed.

Other points made in the Irish Times report were:

Dr O’Tuathail tweeted his support for Ciara Kelly, the presenter of Newstalk’s Breakfast Show, when she said it was time for a fresh look at how Covid-19 figures are presented.

Dr Kelly, who is a medical doctor and has had Covid-19, said the virus has to be viewed in the context there was just four deaths from it in August. More people had died from suicide, in traffic crashes and from various diseases that had gone unreported, she said.

“We are getting this wrong. We are frightening people, and the narrative around Covid-19 needs to move on. We need to look at how we are reporting Covid. There isn’t a justification for it [the current reporting].”

And then see how when one speaks up, they all start coming out of the woodwork because they now feel a bit safer to speak up themselves but they did quality it (so as not to get fired) that they were speaking in a personal capacity

Dr Gabrielle Colleran, the vice-president of the Irish Hospital Consultants Association (IHCA), also called for the daily Covid-19 announcement to be dropped.

And then

Tánaiste Leo Varadkar said he believed that the National Protection Surveillance Centre (NPSC) should publish case numbers every day.

He would say that as he kicked off the lunacy in the first place so he can't admit it was all a bad mistake -especially listening to any advice from the corrupt and big pharma backed WHO.

As with any good politician he then comes out with this in an effort to cover every angle

Mr Varadkar said the majority of people who are testing positive for Covid-19 are asymptomatic and would not have been picked up in February or March when only those who symptoms were being tested.
