World Bank Records COVID-19 Test Kits Exported In 2017, 2018

More on this here:   (news item dated september 6 2020)

https://nationalfile.com/world-bank-records-covid-19-test-kits-exported-in-2018/


from the page:

The World Bank website has an active record for “COVID-19 Diagnostic Test Instruments and apparatus (902780) exports by country in 2018” even though the World Health Organization did not name Coronavirus “COVID-19” until February 2020 amid this year’s outbreak. There is also a record for COVID-19 tests exported in 2017. At this time, we await a clear explanation from officials as to why this record exists, and will update accordingly.

Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) actually funded a study on Bat Coronavirus, which was a project that included scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the Chinese lab at the center of controversy over their bat research. That study confirmed in 2018 that humans have died from coronavirus.

Here’s an excerpt from the April 4, 2018 NIAID website entry entitled “New Coronavirus Emerges From Bats in China, Devastates Young Swine”: “A newly identified coronavirus that killed nearly 25,000 piglets in 2016-17 in China emerged from horseshoe bats near the origin of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV), which emerged in 2002 in the same bat species. The new virus is named swine acute diarrhea syndrome coronavirus (SADS-CoV). It does not appear to infect people, unlike SARS-CoV which infected more than 8,000 people and killed 774. No SARS-CoV cases have been identified since 2004. The study investigators identified SADS-CoV on four pig farms in China’s Guangdong Province. The work was a collaboration among scientists from EcoHealth Alliance, Duke-NUS Medical School, Wuhan Institute of Virology and other organizations, and was funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health. The research is published in the journal Nature. The researchers say the finding is an important reminder that identifying new viruses in animals and quickly determining their potential to infect people is a key way to reduce global health threats.”

How cheeky. (I say cheeky, my internal monologue is a bit stronger than that...)

 

I’ve been trying to play about with archive.org to see if they have a snapshot pre-edit but no luck so far, maybe one of you guys will be luckier (and more proficient) than me.

OOH SCARY!! But, how many deaths? Two? How many of these 'cases' are actually 'ill'?

 

 

basing their analysis and ethos upon vaccine science where cases equate to a fixed ratio of mortality

 

the Gov policy is vaccine science before the vaccine is implemented

 

deaths were down from 10 per 100,000 to 0.2 per 100,000 but cases were average around 300 per 100,000

 

but the vaccination case / death ratio is fixed

First day back at school for many in Birmingham (though some did open again last Thursday and Friday) and...

 

Every Birmingham school with coronavirus outbreaks so far as hundreds of kids across city self-isolate

https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/every-birmingham-school-coronavirus-outbreaks-18892700

 

Quote

Hundreds of children are being forced to self-isolate after coronavirus cases were confirmed in schools across Birmingham.

Schools across the region have been hit by positive coronavirus test results, leading to pupils being told to stay at home.

Children at a school in Sandwell, as well as Hall Green, have been affected by positive tests.

The details emerged on Monday as data showed the Birmingham case rate had soared to around 50 cases per 100,000 people.

Birmingham, Sandwell and Stoke-on-Trent are three areas in the West Midlands on the government 'watchlist'.

Fears of a second lockdown in the region are now intensifying.

 

They just couldn't fucking wait could they?

 

IS ANYONE ACTUALLY SICK OR UNWELL?

 

For fucks sake, the schools will be closed again by Friday at this rate.

The UK's rise in COVID-19 cases appears to be largely among younger people, Matt Hancock says
Health Secretary Matt Hancock appeared on LBC to talk about COVID-19 in the UK, saying that a recent rise in cases was noticeable among affluent younger people. Nearly 3,000 cases were announced on Sunday, the biggest jump since May.

Absolutely crazy what happened today. My eldest two daughters (5 and 6) went to school today and not long after we got a call telling us that a child in my eldest daughters class had “symptoms”. I asked what the symptoms were and got told “the child has a persistent cough”. Deary f****g me if you thought this couldn’t get worse, they then sent home the entire class, even pulling my 5 year old out of her class and telling us to isolate for two weeks. 
 

I just can’t fathom how all these braindead question nothing zombies think this is normal. We’re all fucked.

Quite frankly, Matt Hancock is the slimiest, smarmiest and most smug politician in office at present, who feels satisfied at laying the burden of guilt on “young people” (a broad spectrum) for the likelihood, (certainty) of a 'second wave' of the fantastical, mutating, evolving 'deadly virus' which is killing, no-one.

 

For the most part, children have adhered to the bizarre government 'regulations' and stayed home for six months, foregone their education, all their hobbies, pastimes and interests, avoided friends and relatives at the behest of an irrational, inconsistent and contradictoy mandate. Stiill, it's not enough?

Bon Jovi Do What You Can  😬

 

----------8<----------

 

The chicken farm from Arkansas
Bought workers PPE
Not before 500 more
Had succumbed to this disease
Honest men and honest women
Working for an honest wage
I got a hundred point one fever
And we still got bills to pay
 
When you can't do what you do
You do what you can
This ain't my prayer, it's just a thought
I'm wanting to send
'Round here we bend but down break
Down here, we all understand
When you can't do what you do
You do what you can
 
They built a hospital on East Meadow
In Central Park last night
Doctors, nurses, truckers
Grocery store clerks manning the front lines
I saw a Red Cross on the Hudson
They turned off the Broadway lights
Another ambulance screams by
There by the grace of God go I
 
Although I'll keep my social distance
What this world needs is a hug
Until we find the vaccination  🤮😷
There's no substitute for love
So love yourself and love your family
Love your neighbor and your friend
Ain't it time we loved the stranger
They're just a friend you ain't met yet

South Korea’s defiant churches face backlash for hampering COVID-19 response
https://www.metro.us/south-koreas-defiant-churches/

 

'At least a third of the 4,500 COVID-19 cases confirmed in the greater Seoul area over the past three weeks have been traced to church members and others who attended a Aug. 15 anti-government rally, the country’s largest cluster in months.'

 

How convenient.
