At February 2021, Covid policy has cost the world over 24 trillion dollars, approximately 48 times what it would have cost to essentially end world hunger.
If we really think that the world powers care about what happens to us, then take this in to account. 9,125,000 people died from hunger in 2020 alone. That’s 25,000 per day. Numbers that were most likely exacerbated by the lockdowns, flow on effects from supply chain problems and democide.
If we really cared about life, don’t you think we would have put 1/50th of the money to solve the single biggest problem in the world right now such as world hunger & starvation?
To make things worse, we have contributed to more hunger and more death in the coming years by making the rich richer and the poor poorer through life destroying lockdowns and various other covid policy.
How much of the deaths in India in the Delta wave were contributed to by the brutal lockdowns inflicted on a population that already lives day to day. Not being able to leave the house to go shopping, beaten by police if they did. Not being able to buy food or earn a living.
Is it any wonder that people who were already immunologically weakened by hunger & stress keeled over when exposed to a virus like Sars-Cov-2? A light breeze probably would have knocked them over.
When put in perspective, Covid-19 is a blip on the radar in India compared to other killers such as Diarrhoea which kills 800,000 to 1 million children every year alone. Twice the amount that Covid has killed in the previous 20 months. Heart disease kills 1.2 million alone. Where is the ban on soy bean oil and junk food?
You have to ask yourself… Do these actions really seem like they come from a body of power that claims to care about your health?
Considering the vast majority of poverty is in majority black nations, do black lives really matter? Or is this, as well as the covid narrative being used for some other purpose.
“Most of the people who die from influenza don’t make it onto our systems,” he said.
“They’re people who’ve got underlying medical conditions that are worsened by having influenza.”
Dr Armstrong said until the number of cases peaked, it was difficult to predict whether the flu season in WA would finish earlier than previous years.
Outbreak comes after ‘quiet’ 2018
UWA clinical professor David Smith, a director of the National Influenza Centre, said the spike in cases could partly be attributed to “a very quiet” flu season in 2018, when a total of 21 deaths were recorded in WA.
“There was very little influenza activity last year. And that possibly means that the population as a whole hasn’t been primed well to be ready for the influenza activity this year,” he said.
“We may be more susceptible than we normally are.”
He said the two dominant strains of influenza this season were also different to last year.
“One is an influenza A strain, H3N2 virus, and the other is an Influenza B strain, so we’re being hit with these two viruses together just at the moment,” he said.
Vaccination program expands
The outbreak has also prompted massive demand for flu vaccines, with 662,000 vaccines distributed in WA so far this year compared to 527,200 for the whole of 2018.
Health Minister Roger Cook said 10-year-old children would now be able to get a flu vaccination in pharmacies, rather than having to go to a GP.
“We will take the vaccination regime for pharmacies from 18-year-olds down to 10-year-olds, consistent with what is occurring in other states, to make sure we improve our vaccination rates,” he said.
Mr Cook also said Health Department workers would be vaccinated, after the idea was put forward by the Australian Medical Association.
“I think it’s important that not only that we protect our front line workers but obviously that Health sets an example, and is an exemplar of getting their flu vaccinations,” he said.Posted 18 JunJune 2019, updated 19 JunJune 2019
