UK Government failed to mention any of that at Fear-ladened press conference.
Out of the 44 confirmed cases of the Omicron variant discovered in Europe, all of them are “asymptomatic or people with mild symptoms,” according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.
The ECDC released a statement earlier today declaring, “So far, no severe cases or deaths have been reported among these cases.”
However, the UK Government's pandemic planners seized on the new variant and immediately suggested that it must be more deadly, more transmissible and, therefore, the key to their power being restored citing South Africa’s relatively young population (average age 27) in an effort to dismiss findings by health chiefs that cases there have only been “mild or Asymptomatic”.
Today's press conference was full of the normal apocalyptic predictions, fake data and veiled threats about Christmas, none of which bore any relationship with the actual data from European and South African health agencies.
Dr Jenny Harries, the current head of NHS Test and Trace, also seized on the new variant suggesting that Brits 'should not socialise over Christmas.'
Mask mandates were back in force across England, signalling the start of a concerted psychological campagne to condition the public for a Christmas lockdown. Masks represent the perfect visual reminder that we are supposed to be frightened of something. However, university of Oxford Professor Jim Naismith asserted that despite England dropping its mask mandate in July and Scotland keeping its rules in force, official data shows this “has made no meaningful difference” to infection rates. Again, this was conveniently omitted from the press-briefing. “In both countries very high levels of prevalence have continued for months. Thus the new changes announced are unlikely to have much of an impact if Omicron does indeed spread rapidly,” he added.
Omicron has been used as an excuse to roll out booster-jabs for ALL adults now, long gone are the days when we thought that it would be one vaccine for the elderly and that would be the end of it. We are, instead, going to be required to take a FOURTH jab in March next year if they can keep the fear-factor up until then.
