Karol Sikora, an actual expert.
Karol Sikora wrote a piece for the Daily Mail pointing out what the Daily Stormer has been saying since pretty much the outbreak started: this coronavirus thing is only affecting a specific group of people comprised of the very old and sick.
According to Wikipedia, “Karol Sikora is a British physician specialising in oncology. He is Medical Director of Rutherford Health plc, Director of Medical Oncology at the Bahamas Cancer Centre, a partner in and dean of the University of Buckingham’s medical school.”
But the government will ignore this expert’s opinion because it is based on data, and the government doesn’t do data.
The government only does deranged DOOM predictions.
Finally, we can say with confidence what many of us have suspected for weeks: not only is the end of the pandemic now in sight but also the people best-placed to recharge our economy have little to fear from it.
Thanks to definitive figures released yesterday by Public Health England, we know that Covid-19 is not a random killer, but one that targets specific groups – namely the old and those with pre-existing conditions such as diabetes or dementia.
The statistics are astounding: those aged over 80 are fully 70 times more likely to die of the disease than those under 40, while being morbidly obese increases your risk of dying by two and a half times. And fortunately the death rate among children is very low.
All of which means that the challenge now is to get the economy back to work, to get the children into schools, and our hospitals returning to the crucial diagnostic work and routine procedures that have been put on hold with devastating consequences we have yet to see.
It should also act as a massive boost to our economy, as it means that factories and businesses, where workers are predominantly young and healthy, can reopen with sensible precautions.
The easy part of the lockdown was starting it. The message was simple: we are all in danger, do as you’re told, and if you don’t, we’ve given the police special powers to fine or arrest you.
Lifting it will be much harder, partly because the dangers of Covid-19 were exaggerated as a matter of public policy and people were brainwashed into a state of fear.
But now that we know that Covid-19 is a selective killer, we have to accept that we cannot have a one-size-fits-all approach to the lockdown.
Certain people are more vulnerable than others – and it should now be up to them to make a personal assessment of their individual risk.
After all, we make such judgements all the time. To take an extreme example, my wife has made a parachute jump; I have not, and never would. Our respective decisions are based on how scared we are at the thought of jumping out of an airplane, and on our rational assessment of the risks involved. So it is with Covid-19. As an oncologist, I have spoken to elderly patients this week with terminal cancers who will not live more than a few months. They ask me if they should take advantage of the easing of the shielding measures to finally get out of their homes, and maybe see their families before they die.
I tell them that they must make their own decisions, but I certainly wouldn’t blame them for taking a calculated risk to live their last weeks to the full. But, I say, be sensible.
Some colleagues say I am too optimistic, but I have a sneaking feeling we’ll be largely through this by September.
And when it is all over, we must do our best not to emerge into a ‘New Normal’ – in that dismal cliched phrase that suggests a dull, constrained future – but an ‘Old Normal’, as we seize back our former lives.
With flexibility from our politicians and the wise application of our own judgment, such an ending no longer seems impossible.
The “New Normal” talk is New World Order brainwashing. We must demand the real normal back, which is the “Old Normal.”
We do not need the government or anyone to “take care of us.” We can take care of ourselves, and we have a right to take the risks that we want to take.
Coronavirus is only as dangerous as the flu, and it mostly kills those who would’ve died of the flu anyway, but if a more dangerous virus ever appears, we’d still have a right to decide if we want to take a risk and go out, just like people used to decide everyday to risk going out to work and do stuff in order to live their lives. Those too afraid to live normally can choose to stay locked inside.
We do not need anyone to decide for us.
We make our own decisions.
