“I was told not to state publicly that it was a mild illness. I have been asked to refrain from making such statements and to say that it is a serious illness. I declined,”
The South African doctor who first discovered the Omicron variant says she was pressured by European Governments to not reveal that it was mild. Angelique Coetzee let slip the bombshell revelation during an interview with Germany’s Welt.
Coetzee explained how under the World Health Organization’s own definition, the strain perfectly fitted the bill for a mild variant.
“The definition of mild Covid-19 disease is clear, and it is a WHO definition: patients can be treated at home and oxygen or hospitalisation is not required,” she said, adding: “A serious illness is one in which we see acute pulmonary respiratory infections: people need oxygen, maybe even artificial respiration. We saw that with Delta – but not with Omicron. So I said to people, “I can’t say it like that because it’s not what we’re seeing.”"
The doctor was asked why health authorities tried to prevent her from telling the truth, to which she responded, “They tried, but they didn’t make it.”
“What I said at one point – because I was just tired of it – was: In South Africa this is a mild illness, but in Europe it is a very serious one. That’s what your politicians wanted to hear,”
Coetzee specifically identifies scientists in the Netherlands and the UK who questioned her judgment by asking, “How can you explain that it’s a mild disease? It’s a serious illness. Look at the mutations.” That will likely be one of the key SAGE government advisors who were desperate at the time to continue with the Fraud and saw Omicron as the MacGuffin for more lockdowns and vaccine mandates. As it was Chris Whitty and Neil Ferguson maintained that that Omicron would cause as many as 6,000 deaths a day if lockdowns weren't reimposed.
Official death data for January in the UK shows actual deaths to be around 93% lower than SAGE’s said they would be.
For weeks Coetzee tried to reassure the world that the strain was mild little more than a cold, and did not cause death or serious illness. It was not a threat to anyone, and the public could see that.
However, the doctor was entirely ignored, with European governments imposing harsher lockdown restrictions across the board and exploiting fears to push for mandatory vaccine laws. If anything, Omicron served to exposed the Covid Fraud.
Since this incident, Chris Whitty has gone missing, having not been seen in public for 45 days. Various reports have suggested he has left his job as Chief Medical Officer, with others suggesting he is in hiding.
