COVID Survival Rate:
0-19yrs = 99.997%,   20-49yrs = 99.98%,   50-69yrs = 99.5%,   70+yrs = 94.6%
[Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, USA].

"Instant imposition of a [statist] totalitarian system. Individuality suppressed. Families divided.
Religious, cultural, educational institutions closed down. Work, movement, information regulated by the state. Life and death decided by the state.
The transformation has been so successful here because it builds upon a deeply entrenched pre-existing machinery and ideology of welfare,
in which a large proportion of the people has come to believe it has a right and need to be looked after from cradle to grave by the government.
All they required was a pretext, an excuse -- no matter how flimsy -- and completely by coincidence the CCP flu virus arrived at the perfect moment..."

COVID-19 Cases Plummet as the Country Turns to Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine  (16/17 May 2021)

"There are 292 studies (219 are peer-reviewed) proving the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine as both a treatment and prophylaxis against COVID-19. Ivermectin as 93 studies (54 peer-reviewed) showing its effectiveness as treatment and prophylaxis against COVID-19. Despite the now-indisputable fact that these drugs essentially kill COVID-19 within hours or days, the Bill gates-funded WHO and big pharma are having fits over India's new guidelines and the results ... MSM, big pharma and big tech continually repeat lies about these drugs being dangerous and ineffective against COVID-19. There is real-life evidence in India and Mexico about the effectiveness of these drugs..."

Indian Doctors Defy Govt After Mass Post-Vaccine Deaths  (12 May 2021)

"Doctors in India are suggesting blood-thinning medicine be taken before and after vaccination as they believe Covid jabs are killing people. In a letter, Dr C M K Reddy, President of the the Tamilnadu Medical Practitioners' Association, called on his fellow doctors to 'take a lead in this terrible situation', adding that claims by the Adverse Effects Following Immunisation (AEFI) Committee that deaths following the Covid vaccine were unrelated must be 'taken with a grain of salt'. Dr Reddy said 124 deaths and 305 hospitalisations following the Covid vaccine were analysed, with the vast majority of those cases occurring within three days. He says most of these are due to heart attacks, strokes and blood clotting - with similar problems reported worldwide..."

More Than 100 Patients Die After Taking First of Second Shot of Covid-19 Vaccine in A Hospital in India  (09 May 2021)

"The cases were reported by Gujarat's most popular Gujarati language daily newspaper Sandesh. However, the news is totally blacked out by mainstream national media ... two doctors from Surat and one from Ahmedabad, a total of three doctors who had taken two doses of the vaccine, died a month or two after receiving the vaccine ... According to the Indian Medical Association (IMA), 126 doctors have died in the second COVID wave in India uptil [sic] now. And most of them being frontline health workers were vaccinated..."

A Case of Graphical Correlations: Making Sense of India's COVID-19 Surge  (04 May 2021)

"India is currently witnessing a COVID-19 surge of unprecedented proportions, with an allegedly triple-mutant strain stretching the nation's healthcare infrastructure to the limits. The uncertainty hanging over the nation is compounded by viral despatches of dead bodies piling up in morgues; of people dropping dead in the streets; of despondent souls jumping off their balconies; and of funeral pyres all over the country. There will be no public service-minded Big Tech censorship in this instance. This is supposedly Wuhan 2.0.  Any social media addict would be forgiven for thinking that India's population of 1.3 billion might suffer a dip before the year is out. Amidst the the toxic miasma of fear-mongering, coherent explanations over this surge are hard to come by..."

Fear-Mongering, Lies and Propaganda - Uncovering the Truth About India's Alleged 'Covid Crisis'  (03 May 2021)

"The amount of disinformation and misinformation on India's 'Covid crisis' is now so vast that it's hard to know where to begin to untangle the web of deceit and lies. But let's start with an article released by 'The Guardian' on 3rd May 2021 ... The Guardian claims the only way out of this alleged 'crisis' is to increase production and distribution of experimental 'vaccines' ... Who produces Covishield [one of the two vaccines currently being used] in India? The Serum Institute of India. Who funds the Serum Institute of India? The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Who also funds 'The Guardian' newspaper? The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation ... But the mainstream media also aren't telling you about another insidious disease growing at an alarming rate throughout the whole of India..."

The Truth About the Covid 'Crisis' in India  (27 April 2021)

"[T]he latest Covid cautionary tale is India ... One mystery, as yet unexplained, is why India, which has not experienced a strong surge like this so afar, suddenly did in March and April. Adding to the mystery is that the simultaneity of the surge across the region is unexpected in a country as large as India and contrary to earlier outbreaks last year ... It hasn't escaped people's attention that one novel factor is the nationwide vaccine programme rollout, beginning in January and accelerating during March. Is this a further example of the post-vaccine infection spike seen in the various trials and population studies, possibly caused by temporary suppression of the immune system? ... Whatever is going on, it's a pity there is not more curiosity among our scientists and journalists. Instead, it's just the usual scaremongering driven by the misrepresentation of data..."

India's Current 'COVID Crisis' in Context  (26 April 2021)

"The mainstream media's reporting on the 'COVID crisis' in India has clearly been governed by a global approach to messaging that appears to aim at ramping up fear of 'new variants' and coerce compliance to vaccination during a period of increasing resistance, both in India and abroad.  However, as somebody who lived in India for 8 years in total until December 2019, and as the fundraiser for a food bank in Bihar that has been alleviating the hunger caused by lockdowns, I have daily contact with people in India as well as some context for the figures being presented amidst the ongoing alarm..."

India's 'Covid Crisis' Has Been Hijacked - The Mainstream Media Are Lying to You  (25 April 2021)

"Do you remember the scenes broadcast on the mainstream media news channels, and plastered across the front pages at the start of 2020? Infamous images of Chinese medical officials in hazmat suits collecting bodies off the pavements of Wuhan, where we were told they had collapsed and died in the street because of a new strain of coronavirus, now known as COVID-19. The scenes have not been replicated anywhere else, confirming that it was all a lie and propaganda, used to whip up the hysteria and justify the introduction of medical tyranny across the world, in the name of preventing the spread of COVID-19. That is of course until now. Because now they are playing the same game, but this time with India ... Isn't it curious to find that after over a year of nobody dropping dead in the street throughout the world, suddenly the public are being told it is happening again in India..."

India's Public Health Ambassador Dies Day After Taking COVID Vaccine  (24 April 2021)

"Popular actor and comedian Vivekh, who also served as India's public health ambassador to promote vaccination, took the COVID-19 vaccine COVAXIN last week at the Tamil Nadu Government Multi Super Speciality Hospital in Chennai, urging many others to also get the jab ... 24 hours later, the 59-year-old Vivekh suffered cardiac arrest ... This comes amidst India's investigation into the Astra-Zeneca and COVAXIN vaccines over reports of blood clots..."

Yes, 850 Died of Covid Recently in A Day, But 27,000 Die Every Day in India  (11 April 2021)

"Governments, international organisations and mainstream media continue to drum up fear and panic in India, even as the facts entirely contradict their claims ... People reporting on covid deaths in the media have forgotten that in the arithmetic of fractions there is a thing called the denominator which exists for a reason: to provide a sense of context ... 850 divided by 27,000 is around 3%.  But if that is the worst that covid can do, it is definitely not a severe pandemic..."


A Passage From India...

Health Sec Won't Rule Out Continuation of Mask Mandate After June 21st  (03 June 2021)

Well, there's a surprise...

"The comments come amidst calls for the end of lockdown to be delayed in the face of rising cases of the Indian variant ... Iain Duncan Smith criticised what he called 'obsessed' scientists ... 'There are going to be new variants for the rest of our lives and beyond. Flu has a new variant or two every year. This is the ridiculous notion that somehow we go to zero COVID, and we are okay for the rest of our lives. That will not happen'..."

Delay Re-Opening? We Saw That Coming  (17 May 2021)

"Johnson's announcement on Friday that the end of the state of emergency his government has declared 'may have to be delayed' was entirely predictable.  The rationale has no relation whatsoever to any 'Indian variant' which for the last several weeks has formed the focus of the psychological operations of the SAGE propaganda unit. No evidence suggests that the 'Indian variant' is more dangerous than any of the other 350,000 or so known variants of the virus, just as there was never any evidence that the so-called Kent variant which justified the third lockdown was any more dangerous..."

The Cowboys and Indian(s) Variant - SAGE Jab-Pushers Discover Great New Vaccine Wheeze  (15 May 2021)  [NB: strong language]

"I just wasted fifteen minutes of my precious lockdown life watching the Fat Controller reading a very poorly-written script for the TV cameras in Downing Street. I gather he does this quite often although I can't imagine why anyone would bother to watch. It was like listening to your neighbour's twelve year-old read a takeaway menu. Apparently this week's special offer from the SAGE threat factory is something called 'The Indian Variant' ... It's not a complicated choice we are facing. You can:

  • Spend every day of your entire life indoors wrapped in an antiseptic onesie, triple-masked and get yourself vaccinated every weekend, and kid yourself you'll live forever, or
  • You can live like a sane human who loves life, armed as you are with an immune system that has worked remarkably well for 50,000 years, and accept the unavoidable truth that after your wonderful life, one day you will die..."


Quotes and Comments

"[D]espite this surge, as of now [27 April 2021] India's Covid mortality rate is 140 dead per million people. This compares to 401 for the world average, 1,762 for the US, and 1,869 for the UK. It puts India 119th in the world on this, the single most important statistic for comparison purposes"
[quoted at source].

"The crux of the problem in India is not the proportion of cases and deaths from Covid. Rather, it is the lack of a fit-for-purpose public health infrastructure and medical supplies of equipment and drugs"
[quoted at source].

"It's made zero sense for there to be a sudden massive surge of CV19 cases and deaths in India right now, but the air pollution, seasonality of respiratory infections at this time of year, a poor healthcare system, etc, makes more sense"  /  "Air pollution is the killer not Covid. But given the lack of a vaccine to stop the transmission of air pollution, they will ignore it due to the 'non-profitability' of sorting this one out"  /  "Based on the 1.3 billion people in India, it means they have an IFR of 0.0003%, fantastic, has to be one of the best in the world"  /  "Given the wide misattribution of deaths in UK to Covid rather than the underlying conditions, I cannot think that India is any better at identifying Covid rather than pollution related effects as the cause of death. As the writer observes, this is the time of year when pollution is at its worst, hence, possibly, the syncronicity of the disease around the country"
[readers' comments at source].

"[T]he Times of India shows the most common causes of death in 2020 ... (1) Ischemic heart diseases: 1,540,000;  (2) Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: 960,000;  (3) Cancer: 780,000;  (4) Stroke: 730,000;  (5) Diarrhoeal Diseases: 720,000;  (6) Lower Respiratory Infections: 510,000;  (7) Tuberculosis: 450,000"
[quoted in the readers' comments at source].

"The current modest rise is neither a mystery, nor unexplained. 'Winter seasonal' respiratory infections regularly occur in regions that have no 'cold' spell, and always rise at this time of year in the tropics as they swing from the receding northern hemisphere winter to the approaching southern hemisphere winter. This was noticed by Hope-Simpson way back in the 1980s. The modest rise last year also lagged our epidemic peak last year by 5 months"
[reader's comment at source].

"Attention needs to be drawn to the use of inflammatory language, by headline writers in particular, but also by supposedly reputable journalists. Today's midweek escalation by the Telegraph as they work towards the cancellation of the June opening and the imposition of Antipodean isolationism is a headline announcing that COVID, as it 'surges', is set to 'engulf' the big Indian cities. Nothing rises. Everything surges or soars. Nothing falls, Everything plunges or plummets. Nothing spreads. Everything engulfs"
[reader's comment at source].

"If, as was reported some months ago, most of the British are so numerically illiterate and gullible that they believe that 7% of the population has died of COVID, what hope is there of proportionality about India, about whose size and (wonderful) labyrinthine complexity they know nothing at all ... ?  What hope is there of people understanding, for example, that so far 0.00014% of Indians have died of COVID?  Or that the shortage of oxygen in the hospitals has nothing to do with COVID, but has been ongoing for a couple of years owing to institutional and bureaucratic incompetence? Well, there's no hope at all. Any rational argument gets steamrollered with straw-manning of the 'Oh, so you're happy for Indians to die? How many Indians would you like to die?' variety. Ramping up terror is child's play now. They can pick their moment"
[reader's comment at source].

The Vaccination Programme

"A couple of months ago, we were reading about how India is successfully treating Covid with Ivermectin, which is abundantly produced and used in India for parasitic infections anyway. What happened then? Did they stop using Ivermectin because the WHO opined that it is not a Covid treatment drug?"  /  "Absolutely true ... The vaccine was rolled out end of Dec - early January, then cases flew up by February.  Well, well ... Since the vaccines were rolled out they were limiting the amount of Ivermectin intake. Not sure it was banned completely but there is a connection.  Around October of last year, there was one part of India where deaths from covid were very low, that was the part of India which was trusting in the Ivermectin and some also HCQ, both were being taken and the so-called pandemic was under control. Besides, why would cases go up as soon as they began vaccinating millions?"  /  "That spike following vaccination programmes seems to be seen everywhere. Once you see the lines plotted side by side, you cannot unsee it"
[readers' comments at source].

"I was looking at OurWorldInData at the India data.  Their vaccination programme really got going on March 28th. Huge increase started on that day. Daily vaccinations went from about 400,000 to more than 4 million.  On March 29th, daily deaths in India were 271.  Three weeks later they were 1761.  We have seen this coincidence in many countries now: Gibraltar, UK, Israel, Seychelles, now India.  It's starting to become a pattern"
[reader's comment at source].

"Again, we see increases in deaths correlating with a vaccination programme. The temporary suppression of the immune system could be an explanation. However, we cannot be sure of the cause of death if we rely on the PCR test alone. And, if the deaths were covid-19 based, then the virus would need to be present and transmissible at each death.  In the UK, we saw a similar correlation, peaking a couple of weeks later than the customary seasonal peak. And the fatalities were predominantly the elderly (75+) in care homes. There would have been much safer environments there than in India. A suppressed immune system would have been better shielded.  So it is looking to me that a more likely cause of death is a reaction to the 'vaccine' itself. For frail people, it is just too much. Something is unsafe. It seems not to be having such a serious effect on younger people, but 'vaccine' deaths currently total 973 [in the UK, as at 27 April 2021] and are running at 14 per day according to [UK Govt's MHRA] Yellow Card Reporting. And the [UK] government estimates that only 10% of serious adverse reactions (which I take to include death) are reported"
[reader's comment at source].

How the Situation in India Affects the UK

"[I]sn’t it curious to find that after over a year of nobody dropping dead in the street throughout the world, suddenly the public are being told it is happening again in India. Curious because according to official figures the pandemic is no longer raging throughout the United Kingdom. Curious because according to official figures excess deaths in the UK have now dropped below the five-year average. Curious because authorities will still not grant the British people their former rights and freedoms even though it is no longer justified. So what better way to justify the continuation of medical tyranny than ramping up the fear of a new variant hitting the shores of the United Kingdom. Because make no mistake that is exactly what the authorities and mainstream media are doing right now with the constant propaganda on the “dire” situation in India and the potential threat of the new Indian variant"

"The real reason this totalitarian government wants to propagandise India is so we go into yet another lockdown through project fear and hysteria. So far the SMEs have outsmarted the globalists and managed to maintain a presence on the internet"  /  "[T]he UK government and its media hacks are for ever on the watch for new reasons to lock us down. India looks very promising to them"  /  "I found one simple trick stopped a pandemic. I turned off the TV. Doctors hate me"
[readers' comments at source].

"Just as we reach each stage of 'Release' from lockdown, another variant arrives, ever more deadly than the last... Quelle surprise..."  /  "Why don't you close the airports, BoJo, instead of crippling businesses and the economy with endless lockdowns? ... Is it because closing the airports would interfere with your population replacement programme?"  /  "The only pandemic is the plague of panic and overcompensation, and wringing of hands - that is, if you ignore the real reason behind this rubbish, which is Klaus Schwab and [the WEF's Great Reset]"  /  "Johnson has to keep the fear going... this is a government that has developed a taste for power through fear - otherwise known as totalitarianism"  /  "The Indian variant is from the stab-jab of course"  /  "They shall never let the power and control go... there shall always be a variant"  /  "Half a mo, I haven't died of the first variant yet"  /  "Every variant is an opportunity"  /  "Hail big pharma"  /  "Hail big fascist government"  /  "Please, people of Britain, stop obeying these vaccine salesmen and demand your life back. Now"
[readers' comments at source].

"Lockdown is a policy not of public health but of psychological and economic war.  The reason why the government is now pushing for reopening to be delayed is the same reason why it still hasn't taken place despite ZERO evidence indicating the existence of a pandemic in Great Britain: the current phase of the 'Great Reset' transition to the 'Fourth Industrial Revolution' is not yet complete ... The edict that the UK reopening should be pushed back for a month in order to increase vaccination rates was delivered a fortnight ago by WEF liaison Anthony Blair, Ubu Johnson's de facto current boss ... government pressure will probably intensify to increase vaccination rates: the consequence is likely to be a surge in fatalities following the pattern of vaccination drives in other countries. This surge will be blamed on the Indian variant, thereby justifying the government's decision in the minds of a bewildered population"


India: Covid in Context

What is happening in India concerning Covid?...

  • "The media are presenting cases and deaths in whole numbers that sound horrendous until you convert them to percentages of India's huge population of 1.4 billion people ...
  • Even as the alleged COVID deaths reach their peak, more people die of diarrhoea every day in India and have done for years, mostly due to a lack of clean water and sanitation creating a terrain ripe for the flourishing of communicable diseases ...
  • Delhi, the focus of the media's messaging, and the source of many of the media's horrifying scenes of suffering, has the most toxic air in the world which often leads to the city having to close down due to the widespread effects on respiratory health ...
  • High stake assembly elections are going on in some of India's biggest states at present. Delhi's toxic air has been a political football for years ... therefore, blaming the soaring respiratory problems that require oxygen on a COVID surge skilfully diverts attention from the ongoing political neglect of this urgent public health issue ...
  • Respiratory diseases including COPD, TB, and respiratory tract infections like bronchitis leading to pneumonia are always among the top ten killers in India. These conditions are severely aggravated by air pollution and often require oxygen which can be in short supply during air pollution crises ...
  • The Indian government's focus on vaccine procurement risks diverting resources from tackling urgent public health issues including access to clean water, sanitation, clean air, and treatments for other communicable diseases ... An article in the BMJ reported on disrupted access to TB vaccinations due to lockdowns, with TB known to cause around 1.4 million deaths in the country annually ...

"People in Delhi are suffering from untreated respiratory and lung conditions that are now becoming serious ... the usual seasonal bronchial infections have not been properly treated by doctors afraid of getting COVID, and due to people's avoidance of government hospitals out of fear of getting COVID. Undoubtedly, these fears will have been fuelled by the media's alarmist coverage of the situation. Consequently, the lack of early intervention means many respiratory conditions have developed life-threatening complications ...

"In the context of successive governments' neglect of other longstanding public health problems that disproportionately affect India's working class, the rolling news coverage of COVID and lockdowns are perceived as attempts to coerce vaccination compliance ... Vaccination is now being promoted over cheap early treatments that were previously widely available, and while vaccine take-up has increased, so have deaths concordantly ... While correlation foes not equal causation, most people I have spoken to do not believe this is merely a coincidence..." [source].


What is Covid-19?

"Covid-19 is supposedly a pneumonia as a complication of SARS-COV-2, but ...

  • For most people, Covid-19 is a mild illness which is never confirmed as being due to SARS-COV-2, but the perception of reality is created by official general prognosis,
  • A developed SARS-COV-2 infection could be flu, or even a bacterial infection, and Covid-19, or the pneumonia associated with it, would in fact arise as a complication due to these other causations,
  • Pneumonia or severe respiratory complications can occur from a treatment for cancer - which incriminates other pre-existing conditions in combination with their medical treatments,
  • Meanwhile, quite astonishingly, there is no acknowledgement of what might be true Covid-19, which is an infection of the lungs related to the interaction between SARS-COV/SARS-COV-2 and Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme 2 (ACE2) that is promoted in treatment by prescribed drugs.

"[T]he UK Government's reaction to Covid-19 has been way beyond anything anyone could call proportional. It has been unnecessarily, grotesquely exaggerated, and pointlessly damaging" [source].


Coronavirus Act: What Are We Consenting To?

"In the UK, it is worth recapping what it is we are consenting to with the Coronavirus Act:

  • We consent to increased State surveillance of ourselves and our family;
  • We are happy that we could be detained, without charge, because some state official suspects, or claims they suspect, we may be infected;
  • It is fine with us that we or our loved ones can be sectioned under the Mental Health Act on the recommendation of a single doctor and neither we nor they need to have the protection of a second opinion we are locked up;
  • We accept that the state can retain our biometric data and fingerprints for an extended period;
  • We consent that jury trials are a bit of an anachronism and Judges can hear more evidence by video or even audio link;
  • We think it's fine that the evidence required, and processes undertaken, to determine and record our or our loved ones' deaths can be eroded to the point where they can be registered by people with no medical or legal expertise at all;
  • We don't think the NHS needs to adhere to practice standards or bother with assessing the needs of some patients, especially older people;
  • We are also fine with the complete suspension of democracy in Britain;
  • We accept all of this based upon a unique subset of scientific opinion which, contrary t every known scientific principle, can never be questioned;
  • We agree with the MSM that people who question any aspect of the stories they tell us are dangerous because these people just don't care if their own loved ones die. Only true believers care about their families;
  • We also accept the need for the State to invest considerable resources creating counter disinformation units whose purpose is to censor anything and everything which questions our firmly held beliefs. The beliefs informed by many of the same people doing the censoring..." [source].
