Coronavirus Mega-Thread.


Message added by Grumpy Owl,

This topic is for all general discussion regarding the current COVID-19 pandemic. There are of course numerous other related topics for discussing specific aspects of this pandemic in more detail. And there are other parts of this forum for more 'off-topic' discussions.

As a foreigner I already had hard time to understand some English people and with these masks on I can recognise only baa baa baa...¬†ūü•ī

 

It's not you. Even as a native, often I can't understand the Maskey language.

Ha! I never thought Id see the day when conventional warfare seemed straightforward and at least brought some kind of camaraderie, and the police were on our side. They really are so evil, they have succeeded in making us enemies against each other.

 

When I was a kid, my mother always said, "if you're ever in trouble, go to the Police."

 

Now I tell my mother, "if you see the Police, keep your mouth shut and don't make eye contact."

I've seen some White Rose posters near where I live yesterday, very heart warming.

 

Otherwise I am starting to lose hope. I managed to not involve myself with coivd news as it just brings me down but it feels like the last couple days everything has been ramped up to 1000%. What can we do to stop this? Obviously non-compliance but there has to be more. I think the posters are a good idea to get to people on the fence potentially.

PS. Here's an idea. Make a peel-off poster, and when a local mask nazi angrily peels it off, underneath you have another notice "Hello wanker. I coughed here. Good day."

screenshot covid test kits 2017

 

WITS suddenly changed the original label 'COVID-19' into the vague term 'Medical Test Kits'. At first they however forgot to delete one detail: the bottom of the webpage still showed the product code for these 'Medical Test Kits': 300215 which means 'COVID-19 Test Kits'.

covid19 product code

 

for original data look here:

https://web.archive.org/web/20200905210427if_/https://wits.worldbank.org/trade/comtrade/en/country/ALL/year/2017/tradeflow/Imports/partner/WLD/nomen/h5/product/300215

Oh I remember when this came to light last year - undeniable evidence....

 

The factcheckers were immediately out in force and getting their knickers in a right Gordian Knot in an attempt to 'debunk' it...

 

Imagine being the person or team trying to come up with this.....(ill cut out the boring stuff to save the tears) but in summary...

 

Basically, yes these hundreds of thousands of 'medical test kits' were sold to countries around the world in 17/18.... but nothing to do with covid (of course not!)... in April, in order to track these "medical test kits for covid" better, they updated their item titles, including the 2017/2018 ones! (as you do) - then, when this obvious 'oversight' that would give the game away was uncovered by some snoop in their mothers basement in September, they changed the item titles again in order to clear up any misunderstanding, even adding a little 'disclaimer' ! lolZ

 

SEPTEMBER 9, 2020

Fact check: World Bank website does not show COVID-19 testing kits were purchased in 2017 and 2018

Social media users are sharing posts claiming the World Bank’s website shows that COVID-19 testing kits were purchased in 2017 and 2018, implying prior knowledge of the outbreak. This is false: the World Bank explained the products had only been relabelled with COVID-related descriptions in April 2020. Prior to that, the products had been listed since 2017, but not in relation to the pandemic.

 

 

 

The screenshots show web pages entitled ‚ÄúCOVID-19 Test kits (382200) imports by country in 2017‚ÄĚ or ‚ÄúCOVID-19 Test kits (300215) exports by country in 2018‚ÄĚ with a detailed list broken down by country where the product description is ‚ÄúCOVID-19 Test kits‚ÄĚ and the year is listed as 2018 or 2017.

 

Archives of these¬†webpages¬†from Sept.¬†4-6, 2020,¬†show¬†that the WITS website did¬†have¬†‚ÄúCOVID-19‚Ä̬†in the product description for¬†three¬†product codes¬†for imports and exports¬†dated to¬†2017 and 2018.

 

The¬†HS¬†codes¬†300215¬†and 382200 were classified as ‚ÄúCOVID-19 Test kits‚Ä̬†and¬†the product¬†code¬†902780¬†was¬†described as¬†‚ÄúCOVID-19 Diagnostic Test instruments and apparatus‚Ä̬†

 

The World Bank told Reuters that these products and product codes predate COVID. They have been used since 2017 - not in relation to COVID-19 but labelled ‚Äúin much more technical terms that did not mention COVID‚ÄĚ.

 

In April 2020, the products were relabelled amid the pandemic and the WITS updated its product descriptions accordingly, including those attached to the data from 2017 and 2018, even if the products had not been used in relation to COVID-19 at the time.

 

The World Bank said,¬†‚ÄúIn April, given the newfound importance of these products in diagnosing and treating COVID-19, the¬†WHO and the World Customs issued a list ¬†of these key products to make it easier to track them‚ÄĒassigning COVID-related¬†descriptions/labels to each of them. For the same reason (to facilitate easier tracking), the WITS team created a special section using this list (as well as the new WHO/WCO labels/descriptions).‚ÄĚ

 

However, as of Sept. 7, 2020, the COVID-related product descriptions no longer appear on the WITS website pages screenshotted in the Facebook posts. The World Bank told Reuters that in light of misinterpretations, they decided to change the labels again ‚Äúto make it clear that these were products that predated COVID-19.‚ÄĚ

 

As of Sept.¬†7, on¬†the WITS website 382200 and 382200¬†now have the product description¬†‚ÄúMedical Test kits‚ÄĚand 902780 is ‚ÄúMedical Diagnostic Test instruments and apparatus‚ÄĚ(here).

 

To help avoid the misunderstanding,¬†a disclaimer has been added to the¬†WITS site that says: ‚ÄúThe data here track previously existing medical devices that are now¬†classified‚ÄĮ(here)¬†by the World Customs Organization as critical to tackling COVID-19.‚ÄĚ

VERDICT

False. The products and product codes shown in the screenshots of the WITS website have been used since 2017 but not in relation to COVID-19. The product descriptions on the website were updated with COVID-related labels in April 2020. Due to misinterpretation, WITS then reverted the product descriptions around Sept. 7, 2020 to clarify the products predated COVID-19.

Lol. This is a good one from Clownworld‚ĄĘÔłŹ:

 

"Prof Andrew Pollard from the University of Oxford told the BBC there were no safety concerns with the trial itself, but its scientists were waiting for further information." 

 

Sorry, no safety concerns? 

 

WELL - WHY - THE - FUCK - WOULD - YOU - NEED - TO - HALT - THE - TRIAL - BECAUSE - OF - SAFETY - CONCERNS - OVER - BLOOD - CLOTS- THEN - YOU - LYING - SHILL?

The 'fact-checkers' may in this case be correct.

 

I offered my own explanation on this last year:

The trick, the way I see it at least, is to support the troops and let them know they are not alone - 'preach to the choir' so to speak. I guess that's what we basically do here, but that is important. It lets us know we are not alone, and valuable information is exchanged regularly.

 

The second thing is to target those people who are 'fence sitters'. This is where the bulk of activism / infowarrior efforts should be aimed. These are the '50/50' crowd. They are half brainwashed and half willing to accept new information. Maybe they have a feeling that 'something is not right' with the official narrative, but they don't have the information to figure it out. If you give them that information, they have a 50% chance of accepting it, and 50% chance of crawling back into the brainwashed lala land crowd. But at least there is a chance with them so it's worth a try.

 

The rest are the brainwashed fucktards. There is no hope for them. They will only serve as energy vampires to your gallant efforts, so don't waste a piss or a fart on them. They are slaves and proud of it.

 

I agree with every single word of this!

We live in a world where the vast majority of people are just order followers, they have been conditioned this way and really don't know any better.

 

 


 

The type of people who frequent this forum are are not order followers. We are the type of people who would have been rounded up in the early days of Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia and sent off to some re-education camp (or worse).


Following the path of rightieousness sadly comes at a great cost in our World, but we have no other option but to fight on, because when we give up........It's game over.

 

I also agree with every word in this post!

I'm not sure if it was on this forum but I remember somebody posted last year a video or voice recording of a lady lawyer whose best friend had uncovered incriminating evidence of Billy boy having thousands of disgusting under age images on his computer and they or rather the company they worked for were basically paid millions to keep quiet. 

 

Also some top adtrologist predicted late  last year that behind the scenes Billy boy would get his comeuppance this year which I know these type of predictions are usually quite vague but it was something to do with being in the age of Aquarius that would bring about the downfall of people at the highest level of power that have hidden dark secrets for years. She didn't actually name Gates but the implication was obvious. 

 

I hope she's right. 

 

Sounds like more 'Let's all do nothing about the situation and wait for a messiah to sort it out for us' type bullshit to me. Not having a go at you but I'm very sceptical about that kind of thing.

I watched a video of a chap last week. I am trying to source it and find out who he is. He is foreign to us in the UK, I think he is Netherlands or Danish, but he was talking good English,, he has a long beard, rubber banded together the bottom 1ft, long hair,,  he did a video last week he was driving a car on the video, wearing a pair of ray ban wings.

 

Any ideas? 

 

I am asking because I meant to save and share his video it was very good.  I wanted to share it here.
