Steve if you don't like the BBC why don't you as suggested read the article in the Guardian?
Same rubbish different smell.
Quoting Reg:

"Covid test in July 2019???" NO i am not mistaken! A PCR tests confirmed the Alpha virus symptoms. You don't lose your smell and taste when getting a heart attack.
Reg the virus was discovered end of 2019, the genetic makeup of the SARS-COV2 virus was possibly uploaded into a database by Chinese scientists beginning of 2020. The protocol for the PCR test for detecting the SARS-COV2 virus was created, if not mistake, in February 2020.
You probably mean July 2020. Even so a positive PCR test doesn't tell you if you are infected with a disease. It's a research tool not for medical diagnosis.

With regards to the government vaccination surveillance report I suggest you read the footnote on page 35.

Steve you posted a link from the ons.gov.uk. is that suppose to be government propaganda?
Freedom of information request from the office of national statistics government propaganda? Reg you didn't read the link I posted did you? Your link came from the BBC, financed by public money and yes they publish government propaganda on a regular basis they also receive millions in advertising money from pharmaceuticals. Enough said.

Covid test in July 2019??? You're surely mistaken. Reg Covid tests are highly unreliable that has been confirmed by many experts. I rather trust the expertise of a doctor that follows his/her training rather then rely on this Covid test. You are forgetting that people were sent home/nursing homes to die by hospitals (government protocol). You want to know who's clogging up hospital beds? Look at official government data. See the table on page 35

Steve you posted a link from the ons.gov.uk. is that suppose to be government propaganda? So you don't waste time on government propaganda how do you know it was propaganda if you didn't read it. Is a link from the guardian (who ran the same article) more acceptable to you?
My healthy cousin died in July 2019 at home. The doctor came and said heart attack (on death certificate) daughter insisted on covid test to be carried out. Result my cousin and his wife both positive. The earlier versions of covid were much more dangerous. So how many people never made it to the hospital? I would like to know how many anti vaxxers are blocking hospital beds. I am happy to pay more into the healthcare system are you?

The problem with your experts is that they either anonymous or TV celebrities pretending to be experts. Joe Blogs with a medical degree doesn't make him an expert on vaccines.


Well, that's the biggest laugh I've had so far today. My experts are etc... Whereas yours, Steve ... You couldn't make it up.

Norman, I thought after nearly 2 years you would have understood that the Covid vaccine is an experimental treatment, masquerading as a vaccine, that has never been tried before and it is still on trial with yet to be published study results.

Steve as far as I am aware post mortems/autopsies are being carried out when the cause of death is in question or do you think the NHS has the time and money to investigate every death?
The majority of autopsies were halted during the pandemic. No the NHS doesn't have enough money because for the last 2 decades successive governments have been squandering, under funding and installing bureaucratic processes that take up doctors and nurses time away from the patient. The same problem is happening in Portugal. Deliberate policy to ruin the national health system so private enterprises can profit from it's collapse.
Quoting Reg:

With regards to which preposition should be used (WITH or FROM): if a patient dies because A&E cannot take in any more emergencies because of staff shortage or ICU beds are occupied by covid patients. I would say he or she died because OF Covid.
Staff shortages and lack of beds have nothing to do with a virus but with government mismanagement. Have you forgotten the Nightingale hospitals, or the money wasted in setting them up? A man suffering from heart disease dies of heart attack but because he tested positive before being admitted to hospital will have Covid on his death certificate. Nothing wrong with that? Or is that deliberate policy to inflate the numbers?
Quoting Reg:

My question to you Steve: did this woman die OF Covid or FROM stupidity??

As the dust settles people are starting to realise that...while the rest of us were following the rules.


Right. So, doctors have been told to change the way they record but there are officially only 6000 in the UK from Covid alone. Why are you moaning? Grist to your mill, I'd have thought.
Bad flu. That's why they had to have mass graves in Brazil, why hospitals had to cancel so much other stuff to cope with the influx of patients and why health staff are close to burnout. Oh, of course, absolutely all medical staff worldwide are in on this conspiracy.
Our politicians? Not sure who you mean. I haven't noticed any major controversy involving Portuguese health policy makers. Johnson and his chums, perhaps. Not my politicians, fortunately. As for their (UK politicians') shenanigans, do what I say not what I do is pretty current anywhere. Johnson's carelessness came close to killing him, if he was really ill, and we always think it'll never happen to us - until it does, a bit like those Covidiots (especially the ones who picket hospitals, send death threats, etc) who got it and snuffed it and whose families now expect people to chip in to help pay their bills and bury them. Fortunately, these policies, recommendations and vaccines (not experimental at all) came from experts (you know, the sort of people who have medical degrees and inconvenient things like that - and I'm sure you can quote Vernon and Sherri at me), and governments worldwide adopted them, because they made sense.
Glad to read you were following the rules.

Is it with, or from? THAT is just one of the questions we all have about the 'facts' and figures we're being fed... ADN just pass on the information, its up to you to form an opinion.

By asking the question (FOI) The Office for National Statistics in the UK as stated that a little more than 6000 people have died of Covid in the UK from the 1st February 2020 to 31st December 2021.

Do I detect the use of multiple logins to manipulate the up/down votes?
Can Ed not do something to prevent this?

If people have nothing better to do than create additional ADN accounts using multiple email addresses, just to manipulate the votes then good luck to them! :roll:
