Quick story.
May 2022.
The official message in the UK was, despite all contrary evidence, 'Everyone has to get it now. It's been defanged. We have all the tools.'
Greg (not his real name) picked up a virus from his kids, and gave it to his 72 year old dad, Joshua. Joshua wasn't very ill.
He had a temperature, a bit of a cough, but tested positive for Covid.
Three weeks later, he died of a huge heart attack.

So the sad situation seems to be that most of the worst of the minimisers don't believe covid is airborne because they don't want to believe covid is airborne or because they're being paid to believe covid isn't airborne, when the truth is:
Covid is airborne. They can't face the implications of the truth that covid is airborne.

Or they're making money from persuading people covid isn't airborne.

Two truths:
Covid infection is dangerous

The way to stop covid infection is to
🔥clean the air🔥. Covid is a disease of shared air, the way some diseases are diseases of shared needles or shared body fluids or shared blood or shared water.

This is such serious research, and it melts my mind that 98% of people just shut their eyes and ears to what it means.

"Long Covid can cause long term damage to multiple organs"


It's doing this through infections happening TODAY.

The infections that are happening today, and there will be at the very least hundreds of thousands this week in the UK, are causing this NOW.

There are people who don't know covid is dangerous and don't know covid is airborne. There are people who don't know covid is dangerous, but know that covid is airborne.

My brain is a bit like tofu today, so correct me if I'm wrong, but this is a really bad thing, isn't it?

Short thread, big point in tweet 3.
1/ Comparative study showed that children faced a 78% higher risk of new onset conditions after Covid infection I wonder what the percentage is after the 2nd, 5th, 8th, and 12th infection?

Everyone in the world should have known by March 2020 that Covid was airborne - that you catch it by inhaling viral particles that float on the air like smoke or fog or dandelion seeds. At the absolute very least, everyone should have known that it was *probable* that covid was airborne, and then acted according to the precautionary principle.

I've just had a phone call from a colleague who has supported three families this year where the spread of secondary cancers has been described by doctors as 'surprisingly quick'.
I know of two this year myself.
Is this a thing? Of the five, two were bowel, one colorectal, one breast, one leukemia.

Back in 2020, our kids' school announced they would be following government recommendations for the children to wash their hands on arrival at school.
They said they would have eight handwashing basins set up at the entrance. They said that each child should know they would have to rinse their hands, apply soap, wash for 20 seconds, rinse again, then dry their hands using paper towels, then move away from the station.

If you're starting to realise that repeat Covid infection is dangerous to you and the people you love, allow me to introduce you to the concept of not catching it and spreading it. It's mostly spread by people exhaling it as particles like smoke, and other people inhaling those particles like second hand smoke.

So hospital admissions in England are doing this *despite* testing still remaining ALMOST NON-EXISTENT.

Short thread... 🧵 the next couple of graphs will make your jaw drop, if you're paying attention.
rising hospitalisations So, you might think that this dramatic increase comes on the back of the increased testing that has been announced...

So what is going to happen here in England (and probably most other countries) in the next 8 months?
If cases and deaths rise...
Will there be lockdowns?
Will there be restrictions? No.

There's a deep thing going on.

I think it's most of the problem here. There are a load of people who are stuck with one foot in modernism and one foot in postmodernism.

Oh my word.
I missed this study at the time.
"Here, we focus our attention on a third category of patients, who apparently clear the virus but nevertheless progress into their disease and eventually die."
This narrates so many stories I have heard or seen
Here, we focus our attention on a third category of patients, who apparently clear the virus but nevertheless progress into their disease and eventually die. It's that persistent infection in cartilage too.

Persistent covid infection can cause your cartilage to deform. One common characteristic of these former COVID-19 patients in apparent remission was the presence of dysmorphic features in the bronchial cartilage. These were present in 12/27 patients (44%) with variable penetrance (Table 1). Dystrophic cartilage showed a fibrous-hyaline degeneration of the tracheal rings, together with multiple pyknotic nuclei, consistent with necrobiosis of chondrocytes

So, Dr Susan Hopkins, chief medical advisor the the UK Health Security Agency, if I'm not eligible for the autumn boosters, you're saying that I should catch Covid to boost my immunity?
Can you give me a rough idea of what dosage of virus I should use? Should I try and pick up one of the fancy new strains or one of the ancestral ones?

A short thread about the current accuracy of reporting of daily covid death counts in England.

My experience of the situation in England is that most hospitals are only testing people with serious respiratory illness for Covid. If you're admitted to hospital for something other than serious respiratory illness - they *will not test you for Covid*.

I say this as a first hand eyewitness.

You know, if you twist your brain a bit, you can pretend that a 13% increase in deaths in England and Wales between 2019 and 2023 might just be unlucky or due to an aging population, right?
But when you find out that deaths in the age group 15-44 have risen by TWENTY percent... Surely there must come some point where you say "holy shit, something really bad is up here".

You occasionally ask yourself if things are normal, don't you?
You see all these news stories about people dying suddenly, 42 year old ex-footballers, 47 year old comedians, 53 year old pop stars...

You think back to 2019 and wonder how many people were dying then...
😮 Increases in deaths by age group. This is the percentage difference in deaths in each age group between the first 34 weeks of 2019 and the first 34 weeks of 2023. Increases in deaths by age group.

This may be an interesting thread, even if the first tweet seems really boring:

There are ten steps to effective risk management. Sorry. Old habit.

Five steps.

Thinking of a lady who told me 18 months ago that we all had to get it and get it over with.
She was reasonably healthy then.
She's in hospital now, near the end of her life, her organs shutting down. The thing is, you don't get it over with.
