Covid-19 now the 'virus of choice'.
The secret to keeping the Pandemic going is data. Dramatic charts showing massive rises are very effective at frightening the public. The PCR and Lateral Flow tests being positive for anything from Colds to Coca-Cola help of course, but massive 'cases' in healthy people are only going to get you so far. Unless hospitals become full and people start dying then the public's enthusiasm for Covid-19 will begin to wane. The solution: record any and all respiratory deaths as Covid-19:
The average 23,000 flu deaths a season are a good place to start, but why not add to that those who die of Pneumonia too? the tests will show they're covid (or cola) positive whatever they've got, and if you're going to do that, why not all respiratory related fatalities? Lung Cancer for instance gives you another 35,000 deaths you can claim are 'Covid-19'.
Mysteriously, it is almost impossible (actually, it is impossible) to get up-to-date influensa figures from anywhere, simply because the government don't want you to know what they are. It would expose the Covid-19 lie.
But the little data they have published shows they were pulling this trick all the way through the Pandemic: The Office for National Statistics states on its website:
The ONS goes on to say:
Influenza and pneumonia was mentioned on more death certificates than COVID-19, however COVID-19 was the underlying cause of death in over three times as many deaths between January and August 2020.
The highest number of deaths due to influenza and pneumonia occurred in January 2020, however influenza and pneumonia deaths were below the five-year average (2015 to 2019) in every month.
They think you're stupid.
We asked a prominent NHS statistician for the most recent figures showing Flu compared to Covid-19, and they refused to answer, curtailing the conversation as soon as the question was raised. Vision News also attempted to get the data from NHS Digital, but again, hit a brick wall. One NHS spokesperson last month claimed that the NHS 'wasn't currently collecting data on flu', which may explain why they haven't published any but also raises serious questions about why not. But then flu is very much last year's respiratory disease: in 2020 Covid is the virus of choice.
