For far too long the @SwedishPM has placed the containment of a pandemic in the hands of individuals within the Swedish #folkmarket. It is now time for him to return to the social democratic roots of the #folkhome
(1/23) #covid19 #CoronaVirusSverige @vetcov19 @SvDDebatt #corona
In my #PhD #dissertation (I will link to this at the end of the thread), I argue that #Sweden largely abandoned all notions of the #folkhome where a government played a strong hands-on role in ensuring the health and well-being of the people as one finds in a family/home. (2/23)
The notions of the #folkhome were deeply rooted in social democratic beliefs in fairness, equality, and the health/well being of all in society. To do so it required a strong government that protected these ideals and leaders who led with a moral compass. (3/23) #COVIDー19

“There is no point having a merry Christmas then burying friends & family in January.”

Director the World Health Organization Collaborating Centre & @IndependentSage member,
@GabrielScally #COVID19 #Thanksgiving #Thanksgiving2020 #holidays #coronavirus
‘I don’t think it will do that.’

Hancock says he doesn’t think allowing families to gather at Christmas will lead to deaths

We don’t care what @MattHancock thinks

We care what experts & scientists advise

Why hasn’t the govt published any #JBC minutes?
Since July, the UK’s #COVID19 response is run by the secretive #JointBiosecurityCentre

The #JBC doesn’t share the science that leads them to take decisions

They haven’t released any minutes in 7 months

This lack of transparency makes proper scrutiny of govt decisions difficult

I agree with you @jeffreyatucker that this correlation “of those who tested positive, it was found that 18.3 per cent had visited a supermarket” should not be interpreted as a causal relationship. However, I look at this from another perspective.
I mention this in an article I wrote in May.
« The two-meters social distancing rule is very utopian. It is certainly impossible to implement in #supermarkets- the main source of contagion even under the strictest lockdown conditions.»
My point is even if we #lockdown people, not allow them to work or do ‘unnecessary’ shopping or ‘unnecessary’ physical exercise, we still need to let them eat; unless, the plan of course is blatant mass genocide.

What crimes don't we mention anymore just because no-one mentions them anymore? But actually belong in court?

You can add yours to the list below 👇🏻

1. #herdimmunity never was an epidemiological strategy, yet our leaders pretend it is >
2. #Covid_19 could have been eliminated from our country had we ramped up border controls and testing in summer >
3. Our govt knew border controls could prevent a second wave, said "we will keep the option in mind" and did nothing >

“The revelations from C4 #Dispatches...are breath-taking. It amounts to criminal negligence. Pure & simple.” @globalhlthtwit on #LockdownChaos

To understanding how the #ContractScandal fits into a much bigger & more sinister plan👇#Palantir #DidoHarding #SERCO #HerdImmunity
This diagram👆shows how the US & UK govts appear to have a joint/parallel #COVID19 strategy allowing the military-backed data-mining company, #Palantir, to control heath data

Parler, the SM platform is funded by the Mercers who funded #CambridgeAnalytica who worked with Palantir

“Sweden hoped herd immunity would curb #COVID19. Don't do what we did” write 25 leading Swedish scientists

“Sweden’s approach to COVID has led to death, grief & suffering. The only example we're setting is how not to deal with a deadly infectious disease”…
UK & US are also attempting a
#HerdImmunity strategy despite the fact almost every epidemiologist/virologist will tell you that Herd Immunity is an “outcome”, never a “strategy”

Late lockdowns, keeping schools/workplaces open etc are political decisions not just scientific ones
I’m not a scientist. 8 months months ago, i knew nothing about communicable diseases

But I stumbled on @BorisJohnson’s #TakeItOnTheChin comments

They led me to the #GreenwichSpeech, the #HerdImmunityScandal, #Palantir/#PalantirPlan & #GenomeUK

I’ve just been joining the dots.

The @BBCNews six o’clock news are talking about #PestFix & contact scandals

Well done @sophie_e_hill for #MyLittleCrony & all those at @GoodLawProject @BylineTimes @openDemocracy incldg @JolyonMaugham @peterjukes @NafeezAhmed @PeterKGeoghegan
Just as it is helpful to see a visualisation of the #ContractScandal, so it’s helpful to see a visualisation of the wider structure into which it fits

The shadowy surveillance firm, #Palantir, run #COVID digital health platforms In the UK, US & many other countries

Data heaven!
What this diagram shows is how the US & UK govts appear to have a joint/parallel #COVID19 strategy allowing the military-backed data-mining company, #Palantir, to access heath data

There are grave concerns around human rights & fears are that this data could include genetic data

1. @realDonaldTrump @VP @senatemajldr Per CDC: We had 134,383 Americans test + for #COVID19 & 1,859 new deaths from Tues to Wed. And the numbers are projected to keep going up! What are you going to do about this?

#USPandemic is a #HumanitarianDisaster! Image
2. It is your job to take care of us. Yet you do nothing! Experts know that #HerdImmunity doesn't work! If you aren't going to address this #HumanitarianDisaster then #ResignNow. Let someone take over who will listen to the scientists & public health experts to #SaveLives!....
3. @realDonaldTrump for once in your life, put others first! Millions are suffering & healthcare workers are exhausted!
"The evidence is very clear: controlling community spread of COVID-19 is the best way to protect our societies & economies until safe and effective vaccines....

#BREAKING: England to enter second national lockdown for a month from Thursday 5th November

Hear the details from @BorisJohnson here. #CovidUK #Lockdown2 #lockdown #coronavirus #BreakingNews #BorisJohnson
This is terrifying!

#BorisJohnson says even if the NHS had DOUBLE the capacity it still wouldn’t be enough

The NHS has 150,000 beds & with the Nightgale Hospitals there is even greater capacity

Its biggest weakness isn't space, it's staff shortages.
#Lockdown2 #covidbriefing
The reality of “Yo-Yo” #lockdown has been known about since May👇

Govt scientists have modelled for 2nd, 3rd, 4th waves etc. but this modelling was not shared publicly by the secretive #JointBiosecurityCentre running the UK #COVID19 response.

#Sweden and #Trump stand alone against this #Plandemic

Sweden didn't need a #lockdown or #MaskMandate

Why is no one talking about #HerdImmunity
We witnessed one of the largest redistributions of wealth in HISTORY

It happened in just a FEW MONTHS

Imagine what politicians will get away with now that they know they can panic us like this

WHY is no one talking about this?…

3 254 new #coronasweden cases announced today, taking Tuesday's total to 2416 and yesterday to 2820. The last data data is nearly always updated next day by approximately 25%, so we've almost certainly blown way past 3000 new cases in one day.
7 new deaths also registered, bringing the total to 5934. Despite nearly 200 deaths being removed through "adjustments" in recent weeks, this is a new high.

Oldest change +1 to October 10. Number of deaths with an unregistered data is now up to 9.
Swedish Palliative Care registry reports 122 Covid deaths for October, compared to FHMs total of 72. That's an increase of *14* since Tuesday.

1. For all the people who have defended #HerdImmunity on #COVID19 from natural infection despite scientific consensus. A small thread on latest results.
2. First, the scientific consensus that herd immunity through natural infection (without vaccination) never worked on a disease based on available evidence on several epidemics is available here.…
3. This was co-signed by more than 4000 scientists and some scientific organization to show their agreement with the @TheLancet paper.
The full list is available here:…

SAGE have now put out a statement, highlighting that segmentation (trying to reach #herdimmunity by letting the virus rip through a population) is not a good idea.…
This follows on from many other expert groups saying the same. And there has been suggestions that scientists are divided on this topic.
Individually and collectively, they/we're really not... here's a few more examples...
The WHO, who called the idea ‘scientifically problematic and unethical’.…

#PresidentialDebates should not happen without #LiveFactChecking, especially when our #despot is infamous for lies! This is a thread which attempts to dispute some of #TheHateYam's lies. The #SecondPresidentialDebate2020 begins at 24:19 on this video.

Let’s talk about rightwing liassez faire coronavirus denialism, or, in other words, “Let’s take it on the chin, folks!”

It all began with an ‘It’s just like flu’ shrug, a sprinkling of ‘I’ll shake hands with anyone’ braggadocio and an almost subliminal hint of mask aversion.…

We should be pleased, I suppose, that karma eventually kicked in:……

Though was it really truly, madly, sincerely karmic enough?

TLDR. Many if not all Johnson Gov mistakes on #Covid19 are explained by just one thing.

Treating it like Flu.

Trouble is they're still doing that. And it's no more like Flu now than it was in March.

Someone has to remove these negligent idiots...

1. Since March I've sent 100s of tweets on one Topic.

UKGov made a huge mistake.
They took a strategy for Pandemic Influenza, applied it but didn't allow for #COVID19 differences.

That's NOT OK once.
But what if they're still doing it.

NOW in October??

If the facts fit⏬
2. Psychology textbooks are FULL of examples of Group think. Invariably we find after the largest disasters in history, the initial errors were small.

For want of a small rubber seal, Challenger was lost.
For want of a radio so was the Bay of Pigs.

Bad decisions compound.

Let's talk business.

Many governments still struggle to understand that not controlling #COVID19 harms the #economy more. Because:

Consumers remain anxious. Also without lockdowns.

(EN translation of today's Dutch thread)

#China already seems to prove that successfully controlling the virus increases consumer confidence and helps the economy recover.

See this tweet by @jonsnowC4:


This recent @IMFNews World Economic Outlook research - in a nutshell - also shows that:

#COVID19 ⏬ ->

Anxiety/voluntary social distancing ⏬ ->

Is het kabinet stuurloos? 🙄

Vijf ministers willen meer aandacht voor de economie.

ABN AMRO onderzoek: "Maatregelen die effectief op het virus ingrijpen, is ook het beste voor de economie."

Toch wordt er alleen gestuurd op de de zorgcapaciteit. /1…
ABN AMRO heeft onderzoek gedaan. Aan de hand van pintransacties in correlatie met virusbesmettingen in regio's heeft zij vastgesteld dat de economie juist veel beter draait bij lage niveaus corona besmettingen. Ook na lockdown. /2
Waarom stuurt het kabinet toch op pas remmen als de max IC capaciteit in zicht komt? Het RIVM heeft al geconcludeerd dat groepsimmuniteit niet haalbaar is in Nederland. Het schaadt onnodig de economie en veroorzaakt meer corona zieken en doden. /3

When will the #JohnSnowMemo authors formally reject @marcbonten’s signature? He is an outspoken mitigation /‘immunity buildup’ advocate since the start of the pandemic. 1/N
In this tweet, @MarcBonten, a prominent member of the Dutch 'Outbreak Management Team', the official advisory council to the government, states he has signed the #JohnSnowMemo while also reaffirming his stance in support of #HerdImmunity:
He links to his article from May and reaffirms his position as outlined in that article. A Google Translated version of this article can be found here, for your convenience:…

He only says that herd immunity buildup is not the *only* measure (!) 3/N

This is not good enough. You are mentioning three things that will make infections less bad, which constitutes a position still fully compatible with the ‘controlled spread’ strategy
There are two options, @MarionKoopmans :
1) containment / suppression: keeping it between 2-50 infections / 100 k. Most people never get it
2) allowing it to spread until ICUs fill up. AKA ‘herd immunity’ / mitigation. This is the Dutch strategy.

Which do you endorse?
Because @MarionKoopmans, you have been an outspoken #HerdImmunity strategy advocate in the past. Your current position, stressing the importance of vaccines and treatments, presupposes continued high virus circulation.

In other words: it’s #HerdImmunity with smoke & mirrors.
