Wake up! Are you paying attention? You are being softened up for more lockdowns. The panic weasels are out in force and they are ramping up the fear porn.

The information is all right there in front of you if you care to look.

These people are quite literally the Chicken Littles of New Zealand. All evidence from the rest of the world says Omicron is like a bad cold; that’s it.

But these panic weasels are ramping up the rhetoric and making people literally afraid of a bad cold.

Sure the case numbers are large but, so what? Just because you catch Covid doesn’t mean you will die. People are literally quivering in fear of a cold. The facts say there is literally nothing we should be worried about, unless you are over 70 years of age:

Early last year renowned epidemiologist Professor John Ioannidis published an analysis of seroprevalence (antibody) studies from 2020 which concluded the infection fatality rate (IFR) of COVID-19 – the proportion of those infected who die – was around 0.15% globally. It varied significantly by region, up to 0.3%-0.4% in Europe and the Americas and down to 0.05% in Africa and Asia.

Prof. Ioannidis has now published an update, using additional seroprevalence studies, though still based on 2020 data, as “IFRs in 2021 may be further affected by wide implementation of vaccinations that may substantially decrease fatality risk and by other changes (new variants and better treatment)”. The new study has a special focus on the IFR in the elderly, but also includes estimates for all age groups, though not a new overall estimate.

From analysis of 25 seroprevalence surveys across 14 countries, Prof. Ioannidis and his colleague found the IFR varied from 0.0013% in the under-20s (around one in 100,000) to 0.65% in those in their 60s. For those above 70 not in a care home it was 2.9%, rising to 4.9% for all over-70s. This means that even for the elderly, more than 95% of those infected survive – 97.1% when considering those not in a care home. For younger people the mortality risk is orders of magnitude less, with 99.9987% of under-20s surviving a bout of the virus. These survival rates include people with underlying health conditions, so for the healthy the rates will be higher again (and the fatality rates lower).

The authors note that if you allow for antibody waning of 5% per month in the elderly then the IFR reduces to 2.4% for non-care home residents and 4% for all elderly. They add that IFR varies between countries, and this variation correlates with the proportion of the elderly who are over 85, suggesting much of the difference may be accounted for by the age of the population.

With those numbers please tell me why the Government is lying in their propaganda adverts that “some tamariki get very ill from Covid” and pushing the vaccine, which is demonstrably failing to do anything remotely like what was promised by lying politicians and their corrupted handmaidens in the media, on to children?

We are all being softened up for more lockdowns. The signs are all there, the fear-mongering is ramping up, the feeble minded are quivering in fear and it’s all being driven by the useful idiots the media call ‘experts’.

What we also know is that useful idiots are all on speed dial with the tyrant’s office. They are the storm troopers’ advance guard to soften us all up ahead of more restrictions, more reductions in our freedom, and all for a bad cold.

You were all told the vaccines would end this. They haven’t and they won’t. It’s never been about health; it has always been about control. By wearing a mask you are saying you are compliant. By rolling up your sleeve you are saying you are compliant. By scanning in everywhere you are saying you are compliant. By using vaccine passports you are saying you are compliant. Stop it.

When will it end? When you stop complying.

Complying just encourages them.

Refuse to comply. Live freely.
