Sigh.

We’re losing all our liberties and freedoms because of corona.

They've been doing this is Hong Kong for a while now.

I'll let you in on a secret too. Over a 100,000 people have died from corona, and counting.

So you will accept a unremovable wristband to track your movements 24 hours a day?

Yes, it seems so. A little bit of fear whipped up with the assistance of the media ("100,000 Dead!" - a meaningless figure unless provided with context) and people will happily become slaves. Pathetic and disappointing.

NWO has definitely started. Experts are saying at least one-two years. Not including mutations.

What worries me more than the virus is how this largely manufactured fear will be exploited by the powers that be...

When all this is over I would like to see the stats on death from all causes compared to previous years.

I mean, people used to die for freedom - millions have taken significant risks to their lives to fight for human rights around the world. Look at Hong Kong, Iran, Venezuela...

And yet in the West, people won't even take the virtually insignificant risk that they might die from coronavirus to stop martial law.

French government official data, hopefully you remember high school French.

The graph is pretty clear, Deaths in March 2020 are only slightly higher than March 2019 but lower than March 2018!

Hmm..

@burning man.

That must be wrong, I thought before 2020, people didn't die.

I for one will not leave my house, interact with others or touch anything not doused in alcohol until the world can record a day of no deaths.

THe cause of death is what doctors write on the death certificate. Autopsies in Asia are less common than in the west and usually require the permission of next of kin or family but rarely given for same reasons there's a lack of organ donors, they don't want their loved ones cut up.

Zichi, the point is that if Corona is the cause of all these deaths, we should be seeing higher morbidity rates than we did last year. So far the data doesn't support that.

People are dying WITH corona, not because of it.

Major difference.

The point is, those people probably wouldn't be dying if they had not been infected with the virus. Their immune systems are weak.

At the moment, my own immune system is still weak after a major operation. My doctor recommended that I be very careful because I probably wouldn't survive being infected. So what would kill me, (i) because my immune system was weak (ii) I was infected by the virus.

The nature and the way the infected person dies is a strong indicator that they died from the virus. Some people with disease pass away in their sleep, or slip onto a coma and just pass away.

Death from this virus is by lack of being able to breath anymore and the patients die from choking. If that matters even if they have underlining causes, they died because of the virus.

So what are the morbidity rates you gave researched for Japan, for March 2020 and one year ago, 2019?

Uk deaths march average over last 5 years compared to 2020

1000 more deaths than previous average

Of course terrible but very different to the the offical count.

every body seems happy to give their freedoms away

I wonder what the govemrents is going to do with the data once vaccines are created and implemented.
