A renowned oncologist has claimed today, that lockdowns are a bigger killer than covid-19. Professor Angus Dalgleish is a professor of oncology at St George’s, University of London. He’s also a fellow of The Royal College of Physicians.
He’s written a piece in today’s Daily Mail. In it, he wonders why politicians and the media are treating the new omicron covid variant as if it’s the Ebola virus. On the threat of Christmas restrictions, Dalgleish says:
The real danger for most of us now comes not from Omicron or any other coronavirus variant. Instead, it comes from ministers and officials apparently flirting with taking us into yet another era of ruinous restrictions, cancelling Christmas or other cherished holidays, dashing all hope of foreign travel, wrecking the economy and otherwise immiserating our lives at the whim of the state.
On lockdown as a measure to reduce the spread of infections, Dalgleish says:
A year ago, I wrote in the Mail how I believed that lockdown was a killer in the making far worse than Covid-19. Today, I stand by that view. From spiralling hospital waiting lists and delayed cancer treatment to the horrendous impact on the mental health of the nation, I think we are seeing the tip of an iceberg of premature deaths from causes other than Covid — and that, in time, history will reveal the second and third lockdowns, at least, for the folly I believe them to be.
That is before you contemplate the ramifications of our sabotaged economy: livelihoods destroyed by the enforced shutdown of businesses and High Street firms shuttered thanks to working-from-home mandates.
It is imperative that ministers do not go down that dangerous road again — unless some terrible new variant or new virus with a vastly higher death rate does emerge.
I disagree with Dalgleish’s last point. Why would you believe the government if it said there was a deadly new virus with a high death rate? They continue to lie about the covid death rate. Covid has not killed 150,000 UK citizens as the government would have us believe.
As I reported on October 20th, Professor Sir Andrew Pollard, a developer of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine, said that “the daily reporting is picking up a lot of people who were admitted to hospital for other reasons but have been positive in the last month.”
Pollard went on to say:
“If someone’s admitted for appendicitis or a road traffic accident and they’re positive, they will appear in the daily numbers and certainly with the deaths.”
From the beginning, they included people in the data, if they’d died of a heart attack, stroke or fallen out of a tree-house and also tested positive for covid. It is astonishing that they are still doing it and getting away with it.
