Lockdown Lunacy

Once upon a time:

Sick people with dangerous infectious diseases were isolated.

See: https://malagabay.wordpress.com/2020/04/12/brockton-field-hospital/

In health care facilities, isolation represents one of several measures that can be taken to implement infection control: the prevention of contagious diseases from being spread from a patient to other patients, health care workers, and visitors, or from outsiders to a particular patient (reverse isolation).


In hospitals and other medical facilities, an isolation ward is a separate ward used to isolate patients suffering from infectious diseases. Several wards for individual patients are usually placed together in an isolation unit.


Llangwyfan Hospital – North Wales Sanatorium

The neo-Georgian hospital was built between 1918-1920 as one of two tuberculosis sanatoria built and operated by the King Edward VII Welsh National Memorial Association – the other being Talgarth. Llangwyfan Hospital was closed in 1981.

Government Experts leave isolation hospitals to rot.

Once upon a time:

Healthy people were encouraged to exercise in the fresh air and enjoy the sunshine.


See: https://malagabay.wordpress.com/2020/03/17/chicago-influenza-1918/

A combination of fresh air and sunlight seems to have prevented deaths among patients; and infections among medical staff.

There is scientific support for this.
Research shows that outdoor air is a natural disinfectant.
Fresh air can kill the flu virus and other harmful germs.
Equally, sunlight is germicidal and there is now evidence it can kill the flu virus.

Update (1240ET)

In other news, after another round of gloom-and-doom comments from the WHO’s Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus Adhanom, the WHO officially endorsed the approach taken by Sweden, the latest flip flop from an organization that has done more than its fair share to confuse people with guidance that’s constantly changing.

The WHO initially opposed, then embraced lockdowns, and now it’s apparently back to opposing them again.

A lockdown is a prison protocol that usually prevents people or information from leaving an area.


Once upon a time:

Healthy people were advised to avoid crowded places.



Healthy people are fined for failing to stand 1.5 metres apart.

Five students from Leiden received a corona fine of 400 euros on Thursday 23 April, because they were standing on the balcony of their student house on the Vrijheidslaan in Leiden.

According to one of them, medical student Valentijn Kok, the police gave the reason that the balcony would be a public space where they stood with too many people.

Coronavirus 10 times more lethal than seasonal flu, top health official says

The Hill – Joseph Guzman – 11 March 2020

SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, has killed 56,749 Americans as of Tuesday.

That’s not good.

But it’s not as bad as the 2017-2018 flu season, when 80,000 -plus perished.

And it’s a long cry from what all the experts were warning about just a few weeks ago:

First, they predicted 1.7 million Americans dead; then they redid the models (this time apparently entering a few more “facts”) and said 100,000-240,000 dead.

Now, a major model relied on by the White House Coronavirus Task Force predicts about 70,000 dead by the end of August.

And for that we shut down the U.S. economy?!

CrossTalk on Economy – Quarantine Edition – The Left’s Answer
RT – 29 April 2020

If you tell people “don’t go to work”
because you’re in quarantine,
you have to stay home.


So it’s the state saying: “You can’t work”.


If the State says “you can’t work”
then the State has to compensate you

You know it’s just another layer
of the middle class is being peeled away


And then
you have this consolidation going on.

You know we could have predators out there
taking over companies.

We’re gonna have
less competition.
Less entrepreneurship.
Which for me is a recipe for disaster …


Government Experts shut-down regular healthcare services.

The UK death toll has surpassed Italy’s to make Britain’s the second-deadliest outbreak in Europe

Update (1240ET):

Rumblings about thousands of new home deaths recorded in England and Wales have now morphed into a formal revision of the UK death toll by the Department of Health and Social Care.

Now, a total of 26,097 people have died in the UK, according to Public Health England, as the government prepares to start reporting deaths outside hospitals.

This figure is an increase of 3,811 on the previously reported total of hospital deaths, covering between March 2 and April 28.

The daily death toll as of 5pm on Tuesday rose to 765, which includes those in care homes, hospitals and in the community, according to foreign secretary Dominic Raab.

    In Germany, Merkel has come out and admitted that she wants to combine the task of helping companies recover from the pandemic with the challenge of setting more incentives for reducing carbon emissions. She is willing to allow companies to fail if they do not believe in climate change. This is really climate change by sheer tyranny.

    ‘Lockdown Has No Benefit, Only Negative Effects’

    May 1, 2020 By 21wire

    In this interview, Dr. Knut Wittkowski states how his initial claims have now been vindicated – the US and European policy lockdowns – came too way too late as the virus had already made its way into the populations and therefore any panic measures to contain it would not be effective, and more likely could exact a massive cost on society and the economy. In other words: from a public health and respiratory virus mitigation perspective, the lockdowns were useless.

    Cognitive Dissonance really fouls-up peoples ability to think clearly.

    The evidence indicates the “lockdown” is causing “excess mortality”.

    This is an unacceptable conclusion if you believe in infallible experts.

    In this instance Cognitive Dissonance causes the “excess mortality” to be classified as a “paradox”.

    This actually puts the case fatality rate at 0.37 percent – considerably lower than some estimates, and roughly on a par with seasonal flu.

    Therein lies the paradox, as we see in the UK and elsewhere massive increases over a short period in excess mortality – apparently undeniable evidence as to the lethality of the organism.

    A group of researchers at Stanford published a peer-reviewed study earlier this month assessing the impact of lockdowns and stay-at-home orders — what they refer to as non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) in early 2020. The study did not find evidence to support that NPIs were effective in preventing the spread.

    “In summary, we fail to find strong evidence supporting a role for more restrictive NPIs in the control of COVID in early 2020,” the study concludes. “We do not question the role of all public health interventions, or of coordinated communications about the epidemic, but we fail to find an additional benefit of stay-at-home orders and business closures. The data cannot fully exclude the possibility of some benefits. However, even if they exist, these benefits may not match the numerous harms of these aggressive measures. More targeted public health interventions that more effectively reduce transmissions may be important for future epidemic control without the harms of highly restrictive measures.”
