Another land-grab before winter
Not content with the artificial inflation of Covid figures already, Government advisors at SAGE now want fatigue, headache, sore throat and diarrhoea should be added to the list of COVID symptoms. Basically every symptom from every winter bug.
The London Times reports: “Including fatigue, headache, sore throat and diarrhoea on the official list of Covid symptoms would pick up a third more cases of the virus, Calum Semple, a member of the Scientific advisory group for emergencies (Sage), said. "As older people are vaccinated, proportionally more younger people are having the disease and they have a different group of symptoms,” Semple asserted, adding, “By extending the symptom list, we think we’ll pick up about a third more cases.”
SAGE are clearly attempting yet another 'land grab' with this, including symptoms that are common for other illnesses such as flu and D&V virus if a third more cases are suddenly ‘discovered, SAGE can then attempt to fan the flames of hysteria by claiming the country is experiencing another “wave” of COVID infections. They've already pulled off this trick with the death 'for any reason within 28 days of a positive test' and now are broadening still further the lie that Covid is rampant in the population. Semple's assertion that 'As older people are vaccinated, proportionally more younger people are having the disease' is also bollocks.
Calling the idea “mission creep,” commentator Maajid Nawaz suggested that adding more symptoms to the list is an excuse to artificially boost case numbers, which will then be used to argue for further lockdowns in the winter.
Nawaz posted a Twitter thread in which he explained how including new symptoms would be “misleadingly unhelpful” and that COVID numbers are already being inflated because three times more people are being tested compared to December.
“We are NOT finding more covid positives. All we are doing is testing far more people (3x more people) to get the equivalent result,” wrote Nawaz, pointing out that hospitalisation numbers remain low.
Some experts have previously warned that flu cases were already being falsely counted as COVID cases in order to boost figures, with epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski cautioning that, “Influenza has been renamed COVID-19 in large part.” Back in February, UK health authorities announced that not a single case of influenza had been detected this year, prompting some to express incredulity at the claim.
It frankly don't matter how ridiculous the claims get, the sheeple will continue to believe everything that they are told.
