you should watch it and educate yourself

those high numbers of deaths aren't due to different genetics or behaviour

they are down to racism, inequality (which is caused by racism) and poverty (also caused by racism)
Report saddo March 4, 2021 1:40 PM GMT
Quite probably down to behaviour in part at least. I had to stop going to Asda at Savile Town for my beer because none of em wore masks and were all in groups, and I had someone ill. If masks do stop the spread (I don't know) they have certainly caused spread amongst themselves.

My concern is we are trapped.  The hospitals and care homes will still have cases even when the case figures go low like they are now. The people that are dying in these establishments of several other different  things will often test positive for COVID within 28days of death and hey presto it’s another COVID death. They can easily ensure the figures for deaths are well into three figures for pretty much forever if they want using there present system. Remember nobody in hospital is dying of anything else.

The Chinese reacted with lockdowns initially but soon realised this virus was no Black Plague and could see who it was killing pretty quickly.  The old and the weak. They soon opened up and got business thriving whereas the Western World, with its weakness of trying to save the world and planet and anything else in between, went into panic mode and nothing else matters now other than reducing COVID. The west has lost the plot with this virus. People die all the time and it’s sad for many people but the quicker we realise we can’t stop it and enjoy the short time we have the better we will be.

The gobblewash was regarding the proposition that China just let the virus roam free because they realised it only kills the old and weak.

They don't. Far from it. They are ruthlessly cracking down on any appearance of the virus. Far more stringent than we do. Far more ignoring human rights in doing so.

Cases were falling throughout January and February, I.e. Winter.

Three weeks ago the temperature hardly go above freezing in England, in Scotland there were temperatures below -10C. And cases fell.

A year ago in early March before any social distancing we had cases doubling every 4 days or so. This year with vaccines and social distancing we have cases falling.
Cases started to rise in UK in September and we lost control in October, so just after everybody had “topped up on the magic victim D”.

Cases fell in Melbourne in winter, when they had a “lockdown “.
Cases in many sunny states of USA are high. Maybe the sun doesn’t provide victim D to Texas?

Or maybe the scientists were spot on again and this virus is spread by close contact & the vaccines developed are helping to bring down cases, hospital admissions and deaths.

Report Cider March 4, 2021 8:29 PM GMT
Lockdown reduces positive tests. No doubt. How many people it prevents from going to hospital due to the virus, and how many it prevents from dying is very unclear. In the November 'circuit break' positive tests clearly fell but deaths with a recent positive tests in the assumed 3-4 week lead time merely flattened at the earlier level.

Comparisons to last March are futile as the expert scientists had no clue how many people had the virus then. More than likely thousands of people had it in February.

What all the fanatics of lockdown always fail to acknowledge are the catastrophic consequences of the policy. Do the ends always justify the means. Clearly not.

Are the (predominately very old) lives saved by a horrendous policy such as lockdown, preventing education, thousands of job losses, permanent disruption to our culture and way of life, cancellation of weddings, not seeing relatives before they die etc. It's only due to unprecedented government intervention that people are shielded from the most catastrophic consequences of what has been done. It will take several years to fully play out. And NOBODY knows exactly what they will be.
