Quote, '"ICU is full of the unvaccinated – my patience with them is wearing thin"

This claim is regularly used as an argument for vaccine mandates, and/or unvaxxed-only lockdowns.

But is it true?

In a word, no.'
'ICUs are not “full” of unvaccinated covid patients, they’re not even full of covid cases. In fact, they’re not even full at all.'
'As of last week, NHS England’s own bed statistics reported that England has 4330 available critical care beds, of which 894 (21%) are being used by Covid patients, 2608 (60%) non-Covid patients and 828 (19%) were empty.'
'So, England’s critical care beds are not even 90% full, let alone 90% full of unvaccinated covid patients.

But let’s be charitable and assume these people misspoke or communicated their point badly. Let’s assume they meant 90% of covid hospitalisations are unvaccinated.'
'That, at least, is true right? Wrong.

The actual number is 35.4%'

Quoting from Coronavirus Fact-Check #13: “ICUs are filled with the unvaccinated” 6.12.21
Quote, 'According to the UK’s Health Security Agency data (page 31 of this document assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/upl…) 6639 patients were admitted to hospital “with Covid” in the weeks 44-47 of this year. Of those 6639, 2355 were unvaccinated.'
'So unvaccinated people do not even make up the majority of Covid cases, let alone the majority of ICU admissions in general.'
'So, even going by the official statistics – which we’ve previously shown are routinely inflated to make the “pandemic” appear frightening – the claim is incorrect.'
And that doesn’t even account for the fact that, according to Public Health England, a “Covid hospitalisation” is anyone admitted to hospital for any reason within 28 days of a positive Covid test. This could include people who are admitted to hospital for something else ..' ..
..'and then happen to test positive while they are there.
We could also discuss the tiny number of hospital beds available in this country, which has more than halved since the 1980s, whilst the population has exploded in that time.

But that’s really an article for another day.'

1/4 'WE WILL OBEY NOTHING. You are not our government or our representation. You are neither leaders nor presidents; you are neither ministers nor statesmen. In fact, you are not even men.'
2/4 'You are empty and that is why you will lose. You are puppets of your own shadow and your laws are sterile daughters of sterile governments. We, on the other hand, are the fertile generation that will repopulate history with men and not machines.'
3/4 'We will not do it with grenades or barricades, because otherwise we would be just another version of yourselves. We will do it with the clarity of a silent and constant dissent, without shouting, without showing off.'

1. 'NON OBBEDIREMO A NIENTE. Non siete il nostro governo né la nostra rappresentanza. Non siete né leader né presidenti; non siete ministri, né uomini di stato. In effetti, non siete neanche uomini. Siete vuoti e per questo perderete.'
2. 'Siete burattini della vostra stessa ombra e le vostre leggi sono figlie sterili di governi sterili. Noi, invece, siamo la generazione fertile, che ripopolerà la storia di uomini e non di macchine.'
3. 'Non lo faremo con le spranghe né le barricate, perché altrimenti non saremmo altro che l’ennesima versione di voi stessi. Lo faremo con la lucidità di un dissenso silenzioso e costante, senza gridare, senza metterci in mostra.'

1. Quote, “The “SARS-CoV-2” virus, in turn, is itself believed to be a mutation of ancient coronavirus strains. This assumption arose from the so-called “sequence alignment” which is considered one of the strongest scientific proofs for the existence of SARS-CoV-2.”
2. “Sequence alignment is a bioinformatics technique in which fragments of nucleic acid (DNA) are assembled with a computer into a hypothetical strand of genetic material.”
3. “In order to carry out the alignment, roughly comparable to a jigsaw puzzle, templates in the form of old strands of genetic material are required. In the same way as the picture on the box of a puzzle serves as a template.”

Es gab in Wirklichkeit keine „Corona-Krise“.

Was geschah, war eine lange geplante Manipulation der üblichen Grippesaison, die jedes Jahr leider viele unserer älteren und verletzlichen Menschen tötet.
Die Mainstream-Medien haben Hand in Hand mit Regierungen als Sprachrohr der Propaganda gearbeitet, um Massenangst und Hypnose zu fördern und aufrechtzuerhalten.
Die neuen DNA/mRNA-Jabs werden aktiv an Menschen getestet, Menschen, die diesen neuen Injektionsmitteln vertrauen, nehmen daran teil – wie Meerschweinchen in einer Laborstudie.

1/7 "In the entire history of mankind there has never been a political elite sincerely concerned about the well-being of regular people. What makes any of us think that it is different now?"
2/7 "If the Age of Enlightenment has brought forth anything, then certainly this: Never take anything any government tells you at face value. Always question everything any government does or does not do. Always look for ulterior motives and always ask "Cui Bono"? Who benefits?"
3/7 "Whenever a political elite pushes an agenda this hard and resorts to extortion and manipulation to get their way, you can almost always be sure your benefit is definitely not what they had at heart."

1. Quote, 'So the R-I-G-H-T is kind of a substitute for the sacred R-I-T-E and becomes necessary, maybe only necessary, in the absence of sacred rites of initiation into society or into civility. That’s a really provocative idea because it then leads to the question: ..'
2. ..'In this time of disintegration of all of the social structures that allowed us to be initiated into something, how do we reconstruct a society that is civil in the sense that you’re talking about, in which we have something to be initiated into?'
3. Orland Bishop, 'So this is the framework. The civil rights movement had behind it a spiritual conception that they were not asking for something alone for themselves. They were also bringing something that was missing in the culture.' ..
