The bottom line is simply this, there is utter unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians. It’s outrageous, this is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.
There is absolutely nothing that can be done to contain this virus other than protecting our older more vulnerable people. It should be thought of as nothing more than a bad flu season, this is not EBOLA, it’s not SARS, it’s politics playing medicine, and that’s a very dangerous game. There is no action of any kind needed other than what happened last year when we got the flu. I felt unwell, we stayed home, we took chicken noodle soup, we didn’t visit granny, and we decided when we would return to work. We didn’t have anyone, need anyone to tell us.
Masks are utterly useless, there is no evidence base for their effectiveness whatsoever. Paper masks and fabric masks are simply virtue signaling…they’re not even worn effectively most of the time. It’s utterly ridiculous seeing these unfortunate, uneducated people and not saying that in a purchaser’s sense, seeing these people walking around like lemmings, obeying without any knowledge but to put the mask on their face. Social distancing is also useless because…because COVID is spread by aerosols which travel 30 meters or so before landing.
Enclosures have had such terrible unintended consequences…everywhere should be open tomorrow, as was stated in the Great Barrington Declaration that I circulated prior to this meeting. And a word on testing, I do want ot emphasize that I’m in the business of testing for COVID. I do want to emphasize that positive test results do not, underlined in neon, mean a clinical infection, it’s simply driving public hysteria, and all testing should stop unless you’re presented to hospital with some respiratory problems. And I would remind you all, that using the province’s own statistics, the risk of death under 65 in this province is 1 in 300,000. You’ve got to get a grip on this. The scale of response that you’re undertaking with no evidence for it, is utterly ridiculous given the consequences of acting in a way that you’re proposing. All kinds of suicides, business closures, funeral, weddings, etc., etc…it’s simply outrageous.
It’s just another bad flu and you’ve got to get your minds around that. Let people make their own decisions, you should be totally out of the business of medicine. You’re being led down the garden path by the Chief Medical Official of Health for this province (Alberta). I’m absolutely outraged that this has reached this level, it should all stop tomorrow.
