Having followed the above postings from people (UMRATS) for whom I have a
high regard for their integrity intelligence, thoroughness in their
consideration and research of the ‘facts’ as offered to the general public
and generally their level headedness, I conclude that it is very easy to
hoodwink the ‘general public’ into accepting (I was going to say
‘believing’ but, perhaps even the general public are not *that* gullible!)
just what the government and other authorities ‘want’ us to accept!
How on earth are members of the public at large supposed to follow the
arguments and glean any real intelligence from what they are told? I am an
intelligent person but have not exerted a tenth of the energy some other
UMRATS have in investigating this whole sorry affair I’m afraid - perhaps I
should apply myself more but, then I think ....*What the Hell???* Much
effort has been applied by the learned medics, statisticians and
governmental bodies - yet - differences in opinion are still so wide! Ho
-Hum and Harrumph!
There is a good "More or Less" on false positives,
long in my mind.
Due to being a regular church attender, I probably come into close
contact with more people than most, and we are a very huggy church.
There's usually about 250 of us close together on a Sunday morning. One
of our people became ill last December before covid was a known thing,
but her blood samples were kept, and later tested positive. Another
woman became ill in February with covid type symptoms, and was in
hospital for a couple of days. After that, zilch. Nothing. It's hardly
the Black Death, is it.
Sadly, not the case here, Steve, with figures climbing rapidly every day.
A local secondary school has 20 year 9s isolated this week but the school
has had cases every week since Sept. One of my friends is highly
vulnerable, her daughter is a Yr 9 and they had seriously considered
sending daughter to live elsewhere but she couldn’t do it. The other day,
with Covid like symptoms, my friend did a home test. Inconclusive. She
reluctantly went to hospital for several hours yesterday but was let out
because with her complicated medical condition her house is better managed,
but who knows what I might hear.
Another friend, just 80, was hospitalised for three weeks having contracted
it by someone passing by in a local eaterie. Another one very vulnerable.
Back when you’re talking about, yes, our church too caught several people,
of ages thirties to over 70, plus a secondary school son of one family.
All the adults suffered badly and were unwell for weeks not days. Us in
built on Britain are at far worse risk than the thinly populated areas.
There’s interactive maps around where if you know your county minutely, you
can look up ward by ward and see how many each has, including deaths,
living on several borders as we do of a ward, and two adjoining towns, it’s
been interesting to see how just a few hundred yards make a difference
because of housing types, demographics and footfall.
