The Great COVID-19 Mistake

It is becoming more and more obvious by the day that anything that may have been going around is more or less over and done with. We are now even seeing Professor Adrian Hill bemoaning that COVID-19 is disappearing too quickly for a vaccine to be made effectively.

One would ask why "the virus" disappearing is an issue? I would presume their response would be the second wave which I personally don't believe will happen and think that the standard common colds of the winter could end up falsely being called a second wave.

It's also worth noting that before the lockdown was initiated, COVID-19 was declassified as a High Consequence Infections Disease by various public health groups and publicized by the government website. Why then did Parliament proceed with a lockdown? See below for proof of this: - (Archived copy here if article gets deleted or changed)

In this article we specifically see it being acknowledged on the UK Government website that COVID-19 is not a High Consequence Infectious Disease and that mortality rates are low overall:

"They have determined that several features have now changed; in particular, more information is available about mortality rates (low overall)"

In recent times Matt Hancock said this of those of us who oppose vaccines:

"those who have promoted the anti-vaccination myth are morally reprehensible, deeply irresponsible and have blood on their hands."

Without getting into how wrong I believe that statement to be, I would say that if you look at the statistics of recent excess deaths and reconcile them with the fact that even the over-inflated COVID-19 deaths don't cover the excess deaths we have been experiencing in recent weeks, then it seems to be a good argument to say that the government and Parliament have blood on their hands for all the lockdown deaths, but let mercy triumph over judgment. We shouldn't be at each other over this, we should be working for each others' good.

That's not to say the government intended to harm people and I can see they would have been hounded by some had they gone for what I think would have been the correct approach of not locking the country down. Now however, with all the data we have I strongly believe it is time someone in government just said we're stopping all this.

Some take the view on this that our deaths would have been worse if we hadn't locked down, but I think the opposite view that the lockdown has caused many of these deaths is far more likely when you look at how the non-lockdown countries who took measures nowhere near as far as us have fared. They have done a lot better than us.

There are of course some positives to draw from this in as much that it has given people a greater appreciation of those who do the harder and more tedious tasks in our nation such as emptying the bins and cleaning the hospitals. Despite the fact that I don't believe the fear, some of them have done and are still doing their jobs in the belief they are putting their lives in serious danger. This shows the kindness and love of these people and furthermore it shows that these should be the sorts of people that we should really value rather than the celebrity culture we have had for years.

Something even better yet can come of this, if we as a nation return to our God.

Mercy triumphs over judgment.

May God bless you all.
