Coronavirus/Covid-19: the anatomy of a hoax

Providing the basis for three FBEL articles thus far, the data released by the Intensive Care National Audit & Research Centre (ICNARC) on so-called Covid-19 patients in critical care units has been crucial for getting a sense of proportion against a torrent of propaganda published by corporate-media.

However, a reasonable question arises as one consumes this coverage: if the ICNARC data is for all critical care bed occupancy in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, what is the reason for the difference between the death toll it reports, which at the time of the most recent publication was 340, and the purported national tally – that deals in terms of thousands – and which has evidently accrued for the most part from the hospitalised population?

The implication is that the most “Covid-19” deaths, by far and away, take place in what we might call general hospital wards, and appreciating this can improve an understanding of what Covid-19 actually is versus what the UK Government wants people to think it is.

To conduct ourselves through a “thinking” exercise, we will consider a post on a Facebook page which appears to have been written by a doctor. In fact, while the authorship cannot be verified (due to limited access to Facebook), it makes no difference as a sample for study to show how the notion of the nature of “Covid-19” exists in popular imagination separate from fact. As we will see, the Facebook writer does not understand what “Covid-19” is, and yet writes as if from a position of expertise. In actual fact, one can see the same sort of conduct on Twitter where there is regurgitation of the official account by people, often in righteous indignation and intolerance of dissent, who are unaware of their own incredible ignorance. There is no doubt that we are now seeing the very dangerous outcome of training populations into a politically correct moral universe where the wrong idea, as decreed by authority figures, cannot be contemplated. Two plus two does equal five if it is decreed, and there is no critical faculty to dispute it.

The writing, which can be found via this link, is about the pathway of development from infection to death, or survival at some point along the way, of “Covid-19”. The first symptoms are described as follows:

At the start you’ll have a blocked up nose, sore throat and all the things a common cold or flu cause.

The writer of the post adds: “Most people at this stage fight it off.” Of course they do. This first illness is the extent of “Covid-19” for most people who believe that they have contracted it. But is it in fact “Covid-19”? Most people at this stage will not have a PCR test because testing has more or less only been conducted when there is an approach to the NHS with other, so-called “worse” symptoms, or on patients who were already hospitalised. However, they may bother their GP’s surgery with a phone call and thus bring attention to themselves as a “Covid-19” case. Indeed, from what the writer of the Facebook account indicates, enquirers will be told they “are fine”, but to monitor their situation and get back in touch if it deteriorates. Clearly, patients are invited into the culture of “Covid-19” inevitability that the NHS now lives and breathes, as indicated by how the individual who wrote the Facebook post assumes “Covid-19” at this first stage, when there is no basis for it in evidence.

The upshot is, thousands of people who have a common or garden cold or flu think that they have “Covid-19”, and this presents perception of pervasiveness of the disease at a grass roots level to their friends, family and contacts at work.

The next stage of “Covid-19” according to this Facebook reporter is “High temp, cough, feeling really awful, plus any other combination of symptoms.” He adds, “This is the point I’d be ringing for help.”

It is very important to note the stipulation of “any other combination of symptoms” as part of this second stage. At the beginning of this coronavirus episode, the symptoms were made quite clear through official channels, and they were limited and exact. Now, apparently, there is an effort to cast the net wide to encourage the perception of “Covid-19” where there isn’t any.

It is at this stage, then, that a person will approach the NHS to have a test. However, if a person has a test, it won’t necessarily prove infection by SARS-COV-2, as admitted by the US Centres for Disease Control – which is a fact expressed on these pages many times before (see the article, Letting flu do the dirty work: the vast potential to misrepresent death as due to Covid-19). Indeed, if the test proves positive, it may even be indicating the presence of another virus, or even the involvement of bacteria – which makes what the Facebook writer says about the worsening of “Covid-19” even more interesting:

There seems to be a suggestion that secondary bacterial infections are higher risk so at this point if you phone I’d be giving you an antibiotic.

What is being expressed here is the idea that an initial viral infection weakens a host so that a bacterial one can take a hold. This issue has been dealt with here at FBEL before in respect of pneumonia, and it was deduced that it is quite possible that the problem could quite easily be an initial case of bacterial infection (see the article, Pneumonia and Covid-19, and the veracity of the “one virus, one cause” paradigm).

Now, the admission of Boris Johnson into a critical care unit has been very useful in that it has provided the Independent an opportunity to present an account to its befuddled readership of what happens in that sort of facility. Within this article is a reminder of the core concept of “Covid-19”, at least as those who are supposedly knowledgeable by the official narrative should understand it: “coronavirus [meaning SARS-COV-2]… attacks the lungs causing severe pneumonia”. At FBEL it has been shown that there are many reasons why a patient could have a complication of pneumonia, or in other words, when doctors are seeing pneumonia, and calling it “Covid-19”, it isn’t necessarily the case that the underlying cause is SARS-COV-2. In fact, because there is indeed something that we might call true Covid-19 (which appears to be SARS-COV binding with ACE2 [see here], but more on this below), everything else could be bogus, and entirely explainable by an another underlying cause – even by flu that is concealed by a diagnosis of SARS-COV-2.

So, if the illness that the Facebook writer is describing is the one that is developing into the pneumonia that is called “Covid-19”, it is a bacterial pneumonia. But quite typically of the tunnel vision stupidity of the NHS and orthodox medicine, this individual doesn’t appear to appreciate that he isn’t dealing with “Covid-19”. If he is prescribing antibiotics, and they are solving the issue, he has encountered a patient with a bacterial infection. Bacterial infections are not “Covid-19”.

Of the people who die of “Covid-19”, the Facebook writer has this to say:

There are a subgroup of people then who seem to have a very exaggerated immune response to the virus and it hasn’t been worked out yet why. These are the people who seem to be dying but we aren’t really sure why.

It’s a very very very small group.

There are people who respond to other illnesses like this and it’s their body actually doing too good a job of fighting the illness. Their weakened body can’t cope with the exaggerated response however.

The first point to make is that to impute an exaggerated immune response in every case is due to “the virus” is either an act of stupidity or dishonesty (especially when he goes on to state that the same response is associated with other illness). In the FBEL article mentioned above, it was explained that a Health Freedom proponent would probably see things rather like this:

Complicated illness would come about because the immune system would be suppressed by toxins from the environment, or even from intrusive medicine. Moreover, an overactive immune system – that will manifest as complicated illness – is caused by toxins that either suppress signalling, so the body doesn’t know when to stop reacting, or also generally interfere with how components for normal function chemically communicate.

In another article, Covid-19 and pneumonic immune system overreaction, it was shown that pneumonia can be a complication of cancer treatment. And it is astonishing, when there are so many possibilities, that this so-called educated Facebook writer can be so blinkered and in fact appear to be such a simpleton.

However, what this tells us that is there is an opinion that death by Covid-19 is due to immune system overreaction to the virus – even though we will see that this can’t be sustained if patients are dying quietly of their underlying causes in general wards (and only by designation are they Covid-19). This brings us, at last, to the issue of how people generally die in hospital.

Astonishingly, the simple fact that people die in NHS care seems to have been forgotten in the Covid-19 hysteria. The FBEL article, Dr Strangelove: or how I learned to stop worrying about the sale of the NHS, explored how there were 286,000 deaths in NHS England between 1st August 2018 and 31st July 2019. Moreover, the Office for National Statistics lists the leading causes of death in England for 2018 as Cerebrovascular diseases (12,520), Chronic lower respiratory diseases (14,973), Dementia and Alzheimer disease (22,314), Influenza and pneumonia (12,446), Ischaemic heart diseases (32,862), and Malignant neoplasm of trachea, bronchus and lung (15,021).

So, we need to understand that patients in hospital with these illnesses, and others not mentioned, will be gauged in terms of expectation to live, or expectation to die. Presumably, those who are not expected to die will receive aggressive treatment if required to restore a stable condition, and these are the patients who we would expect to be promoted to intensive care for a period. However, at some point, for any patient, general hospital care is going to shift to a palliative approach from a curative approach. We need to realise that people do just die quietly in hospital of their illness.

Moreover, these patients do not have to develop pneumonic complications to be adjudged to have died from “Covid-19”, and this is because of the way that the NHS has created leeway for any death at its hands to be designated as related to SARS-COV-2. The following is from official NHS guidance (pdf):

In an emergency period of the COVID-19 pandemic there is a relaxation of previous legislation concerning completion of the medical certificate cause of death (MCCD) by medical practitioners (referred to for the remainder of this document as doctor)…

Covid-19 is an acceptable direct or underlying cause of death for the purposes of completing the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death…

If before death the patient had symptoms typical of COVID19 infection, but the test result has not been received, it would be satisfactory to give ‘COVID-19’ as the cause of death, and then share the test result when it becomes available. In the circumstances of there being no swab, it is satisfactory to apply clinical judgement.

What this is saying is that i) where a test result is pending, the NHS wants presumption of Covid-19 for purposes of headlines – the later row-back will not be noticed, and ii) when there is no test pending, the NHS wants presumption of Covid-19.

Again, it should be pointed out that a PCR test (with a specimen collected with a swab) does not diagnose Covid-19, so the issue listed in the first point is bad enough. However, point ii shows that no evidence, not even a thin example of it, is required to attribute Covid-19 as a cause of death.

The scandal is in plain view. What the UK Government has done, principally with the relaxing of regulations concerning the post mortem examination of a corpse, is create an environment where there doesn’t need to be thoroughness in the filtering that occurs at the coal face of medical care. The UK Government has created an environment where “Covid-19” deaths can be artificially pronounced; but let’s put it this way: if UK Government wanted to create a perception of mass death from a disease, it has done exactly the things it needed to do for that purpose.

Let’s recap. Covid-19 is supposedly a pneumonia as a complication of SARS-COV-2, but we’ve found that:

For most people, “Covid-19” is a mild illness which is never confirmed as being due to SARS-COV-2, but the perception of its reality is created by official general prognosis.

A developed SARS-COV-2 infection could be flu, or even a bacterial infection, and “Covid-19”, or the pneumonia associated with it, would in fact arise as a complication due to these other causations.

Pneumonia or severe respiratory complications can occur from a treatment for cancer – which incriminates other pre-existing conditions in combination with their medical treatments.

Finally, death from other illness is classified as death from Covid-19, even without any evidence to support SARS-COV-2 as being present in the host.

Meanwhile, quite astonishingly, there is no acknowledgement of what might be† true Covid-19, which is an infection of the lungs related to the interaction between SARS-COV/SARS-COV-2 and Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme 2 (ACE2) that is promoted in treatment by prescribed drugs.

And then there is the other aspect that should produce conviction: as the Swiss Propaganda Research site argues (April 7th update):

Thus the most important indicator for judging the danger of the disease is not the frequently reported number of positively-tested persons and deaths, but the number of persons actually and unexpectedly developing or dying from pneumonia (so-called excess mortality).

In other words, to turn this into a question, what is the scale of the true disease as should also be reckonable by excess death: or deaths that wouldn’t have happened anyway?

What we note is that Covid-19, in its truest sense (if it be the case), appears to be something so peculiar that there should be no confusion with any other disease or illness.  By its mechanics, and by its featuring as a new cause for death, it should be clearly identifiable. However, quite to the contrary of what is achievable and required, there has been a deliberate effort at inconsistency and blurring in Covid-19 diagnosis – and this would be because of how it has been expressly designed as a concept to elicit fear, and an unquantifiable phenomenon for the purpose of a hoax.

The hoax is this: there is a killer stalking the land that can strike anyone down as if it was the Black Death come back. In truth, a lot of people who would have died (in any case) are being called victims of this terrible plague so that large numbers in a death toll can be produced. And over again we are hearing experts and officials talk about huge overlaps of people who “die with coronavirus”, and people who would have died anyway (see here for example) – the latest occasion being from Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Jenny Harries who told the daily “war situation” briefing on Sunday that: “Covid associated deaths… would not all be a death as a result of Covid”

However, the threat of Covid-19 is amplified to such an extent through the deception that economic vandalism, as explained in the FBEL article, The Queen is at economic war with the British people, is presented as being a necessary sacrifice to make. The people, cowering in their kennels (may they never again dare sing “Land of Hope and Glory”), allow the vandalism and the thievery, and the violence (because innocents will inevitably die due to the conditions created by lockdown) because they cannot begin to think that UK Government would do such a thing.

In actual fact, most people are getting what they deserve – the British people evidently need to learn the hard way. On the other hand, some people don’t deserve the tough lesson, and certainly don’t need it, but to them it should serve as motivation: the “some” will be a good start for the serving of the just deserts where they are really due. And, of course, the “some” will inevitably become the “many more”.


† Additional, 19th July 2021: The fact of the matter has emerged since this early Covid-19 piece was written. Real Covid-19 is pneumonia after – due to – lung damage caused by SARS-COV binding to ACE2.

    My wife was sent home from work due to pain in her chest and shortness of breath. The next day she had the same and called the surgery. She explained she did not have a fever nor a cough. He said COVID has other symptoms told her to isolate for 7 days and take antibiotics and an inhaler.
    To get a certificate for absence from work she had to fake the NHS questions on the website.
    Voila, another case of non existent virus.
    I’ve know this was a scam from the start.

      Thanks for sharing. Hope your wife is feeling better (this is not advice, but reading the symptoms, all here thought of anxiety).
