The British Medical Association has accused the government of being “wilfully negligent” in its response to rising covid cases and that restrictions should be imposed immediately. The BMA wants the government to trigger so called Plan B.
Last month, the Health Secretary laid out the government’s plans to deal with Covid-19 over the Winter. There are two approaches, Plan A and Plan B.
The strategy currently in operation is Plan A which involves offering booster jabs to about 30 million people and offering a single vaccine dose to healthy 12 to 15-year-olds.
Plan B if triggered, would see mask wearing mandated, working from home again and introducing a vaccine passport scheme. The government has stated that Plan B would only be triggered if the NHS comes under “unsustainable pressure.”
Dr. Chaand Nagpaul, the chair of the BMA, believes that time is now. According to the BBC this morning:
He (Nagpaul) stressed that case numbers were comparable to March, when England was in lockdown, and were “unheard of in similar European nations”.
“It is therefore incredibly concerning that [Mr Javid] is not willing to take immediate action to save lives and to protect the NHS,” he said.
Dr Nagpaul said the government had “taken its foot off the brake, giving the impression that the pandemic is behind us and that life has returned to normal”.
He said: “It is wilfully negligent of the Westminster government not to be taking any further action to reduce the spread of infection”, adding that compulsory face coverings, physical distancing and ventilation requirements in “high-risk settings” were “the norm in many other nations”.
Yesterday, the Health Secretary Sajid Javid threatened those who haven’t yet received their booster jab and those who haven’t yet had a single jab, that they would lose their freedoms if they didn’t come forward.
Look, it’s pretty straightforward. It doesn’t matter how many people roll up their sleeves for a jab, they will lock the country down again this Winter. I’d bet the farm on it, if I had one.
To date, 96 million jabs have been administered in this country. That’s a truly staggering number. I warned earlier this year, that they would use the threat of new variants to push booster jabs. I predicted that no matter how many jabs were given, they would lock down again this Winter.
There is no pandemic. There is a casedemic, which is driven by the testing regime. If people refused to be tested, this would all be over in a heartbeat.
The NHS will be overwhelmed. It is overwhelmed every single Winter. As I have said time and again, the number of UK hospital beds has HALVED in the past thirty years, while the population has grown exponentially.
It gets worse. They took away more hospital beds last year to cope with covid patients. Read that again. We don’t talk about it often enough. For the purposes of social distancing, they reduced bed capacity even further. These people are lunatics.
The hospital crisis is inevitable. It’ll be worse this year because the NHS is missing tens of thousands of doctors and nurses. Don’t forget the inevitable bed-blocking crisis which looms large.
Tens of thousands of social care workers are leaving the profession because of the covid jab mandate. As a result, it’s going to be more difficult to discharge seniors from hospital if they can’t be cared for at home, or sent to a nursing home. It’s a perfect storm.
So Javid, the Nazi thug, is lying when he says we should be jabbed in return for our freedoms. We could take ten jabs each between now and Christmas and they’d still lock down.
This was never about a virus. If folks can’t see that now, they’ll never see it.
