Without this turning into a pantomime ... rubbish! I'm analysing PHE's figures (amongst others) ... not those mentioned by Mavis/Walter next door (or the window cleaner's granny's version) ...

You can preach 'the truth' as long as you want but if you do it in a field of a 1000 of people also preaching their (crazy) version of 'the truth' why would anyone take any notice?

Not many people understand what an organised disinformation campaign sets out to do. It is not an attempt to form a coherent contrary view or establish an alternative version of the truth rather it sets out to promote hundreds of alternate (and even contradictory) views so that no one knows what the truth is anymore. To sow distrust and destroy faith in experts. Perhaps you should see yourself as a victim of this campaign?

I do my own research - facts & figures from root/official sources. Nothing to do with Facebook (or anybody else, for that matter).
No you do not. You grab other people's research off the internet. You then chose which set of figures to promote and discard those that you do not like.
I sit back and let the experts fight it out and then go with the consensus.  Do the experts sometimes get it wrong? Yes but  compared to Google experts they are  vastly more often right than wrong.
Think seat belts. When they were first introduced loads of people were against them claiming you could be trapped in a burning car by your seat-belt so they were unsafe. The point was that whilst a couple of 'extra' people could die in such situation this number was vastly outweighed by the 100's who would not die by being ejected from the car. Its a numbers game.
Get ready for the next internet conspiracy boom when the vaccine arrives and all the crackpot loony people constantly bringing up the flu death totals refuse to be vaccinated.

The economy is being crumbled, unnecessarily (IMHO). People are losing their livelihoods. Mental health issues are climbing. People are not happy.

Where's the balance..........
A Government exists  first and foremost to protect its people. The wallets of the people comes long  after that. Business profits are not even on the list  If we were bombing Iraq or Afghanistan billions would be spent without batting an eyelid. Far better to spend the money saving lives.
Under Trump the USA is pursuing a 'Herd Immunity' strategy with no attempt to protect the vulnerable. Check their latest figures and tell me it works.

That's if you believe the statistics, which are (to say the least) following some rather strange & unlikely patterns.


Yes Facebook is full of people who are 'experts' on statistics......... ......cue remark  about flu comparison?

Perhaps Hartlepool TV should make a video about their views on  the best way to fight the spread on Covid?
