Ireland's Non Existent Pandemic: Did Lockdown Kill Four Times More People Than the Flu?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Despite what the Irish health authorities and the Government are claiming, 1750 people did not die of Corona flu in Ireland. The real figure is closer to 225.


In June an analysis of the General Register’s Office death registration figures revealed that the official pandemic story was full of holes; with death rates similar to previous years.


On July 3rd Government agency, Health Information Quality Authority (HIQA) admitted that Corona fatalities were overestimated – exaggerated by 60%.


A Central Statistics Office report published on the same day proved to be equally revealing and further undermined the official pandemic narrative.


Reporting on deaths in Ireland from January 1st 2020 up until June 30th, the CSO note: “Excess mortality for the period was 1,072.”


Excess deaths are additional fatalities above what
would normally be expected to occur anyhow, and are attributed to everything from bad winter weather to
seasonal flu.


Excess deaths are a regular occurrence and the figures for this year are comparable to January 2018 and 2017.


The CSO examined thousands of online funeral notices, the General Register’s Office figures and other sources of data, and calculated that 8,449 people died in Quarter 1 2020 and 8,292 died in Quarter 2.


In total 16,741 people- 129 fewer than the same period two years ago when the country was hit with a similar flu.


CSO official death figures from 2018 show that in
Quarter one 9,278 died and in Quarter two 7,592 died.


In total 16,870 people.


From these figures, it is obvious, there was never a “pandemic” in Ireland and that the true death toll is 1072 –not 1750.


However- 1072 fatalities begs the question; how many people died because of the LOCKDOWN, as opposed to the flu?


The USA Centre for Disease Control Corona has helped solve part of the puzzle; they estimate Corona has a fatality rate of 0.26%, making it no worse than a bad bout of seasonal flu. In other words, 99.74% of people make a full recovery.


So we are not dealing with the BLACK DEATH, but rather, seasonal flu.


Former Prime Minister, Leo Varadakar, recently answered the second part of the puzzle.


In a revealing comment on his Twitter account on July 3rd he said:


“In Ireland we counted all deaths, in all settings, suspected cases even when no lab test was done, and included people with underlying terminal illnesses who died with Covid but not of it.”


So how many people had an underlying terminal illness?


According to the CSO the average age of the reported


Corona case mortalities was 83, and in 88% of cases the deceased had one or more co-morbidities i.e. diseases.


The only way to know for certain what someone died of is to perform an autopsy which will determine if Corona was the immediate cause of death, or if it was a merely an additional factor alongside other serious underlying health problems.


And as The Irish Times headline reported on May 11:


“Autopsies done on just 5 confirmed cases of Covid-19 fatalities.”


The WHO issued strange guidelines on January 30th
2020 which stated: “A death due to Covid-19 may not be attributed to another disease (e.g. cancer) and should be counted independently of pre-existing conditions that are suspected of triggering a severe case of Covid-19.”


In other words, Doctors were effectively instructed to ignore reality.


How do you decide what was the cause of death when known life threatening conditions such as heart disease, cancer etc are off-limits? Instead, they were asked to take a guess on a totally new virus that did not exist several months ago, and, no autopsy to prove otherwise?


To add to the confusion the National Health Service Agency, the HSE, sent a memorandum to GP’s on March 21st instructing them not to seek tests for elderly people in homes and to assume that “if one resident at the nursing home had Covid-19 (Corona), they all have it.”


In the absence of any clinical data to prove otherwise, medics were being encouraged to engage in randomised guess work. A practise that appears to have become the norm.


Three weeks after the HIQA and Central Statistics Office reports, the Department of Health added on more ‘Corona’ deaths on top of the other 678 nonexistent pandemic fatalities:


On July 24th they announced: “There have been 1,763 COVID-19 related deaths in Ireland.”


The mainstream media and State broadcaster, RTE TV, repeated the story verbatim on all their flagship news shows.


In April the official Government mantra was- only go to trusted news sources; presumably they meant the Department of Health and RTE Television!


Corona flu did not just manifest on our doorsteps in March. It would appear to have been knocking around Europe and Ireland since well before Christmas 2019.


A fact confirmed by health authorities in Northern Italy who discovered traces of it in effluent treatment plants. The Spanish have made similar discoveries from frozen sewage samples taken in Barcelona on March 12 2019, last year.


Even the Department of Health acknowledge this on their official website in a daily briefing document titled:


Updates on COVID-19 (Coronavirus) since January 2020.


A big spike in deaths did occur in April. However, there is another explanation for the excess deaths- the LOCKDOWN.


A policy decision which resulted in the emptying out of sick people from hospitals, empty A&E departments because elderly people were terrified of picking up the flu there and the cancellation of thousands of medical procedures.


There were a myriad of other LOCKDOWN related adverse factors such as isolation, stress and fear in old folk homes because the people were deprived of contact with their families, the relocation of people with flu into otherwise flu-free environments, lack of oxygen supplies and so forth.


And this among a group of very old and frail people -average age 83- many of whom were also suffering from serious underlying health problems.


It is hard to escape the conclusion that most of the subsequent deaths were avoidable, but once they happened, Corona was rubber stamped as the cause.


As former government minister, Ivan Yates, pointed out recently:


“It will be one of the biggest scandals in the history of the state.”


Sceptics of the information presented here will point to the high death toll in Italy. On that subject the last word goes to former
Director General of Israel’s Ministry of Health, Yoram Lass. In an interview on May 22, 2020 for Spiked he said:


“In 2017 25,000 Italians died from flu complications. Now you have 30,000. So it is a compatible number.”


“Mortality due to the Corona virus is a fake number. Those recording deaths simply change the label. If patients died from cardiovascular disease, or from dementia, they put Corona Virus.”


The Irish health authorities and government claim that the lockdown averted a disaster. If that is the case- where is the proof?


There was no close down in 2018 -which had a far worse flu season- or any other year. Things just carried on as normal and the flu disappeared as you would expect it to.


In early January 2018, the country was hit by “Aussie” flu. The January 1st 2018 Irish Independent headline warned:


“Experts warn Ireland could be facing the deadliest outbreak of flu in 50 years.”


In the first week of 2018 over 20,000 were struck down by ‘Aussie’ virus and a staggering 4,700 people turned up in GP’s surgeries. Over 2,700 were admitted to hospitals. SOUND FAMILIAR!


In the Central Statistics Office VITAL STATISTICS QUARTER 1 2018 report they note:


“Deaths are up by 211 compared to the same period in 2017.”


If we compare this year’s flu season with 2018 the death toll from Corona is probably much the same, and in the region of 225 fatalities. Not the widely reported figure of 1750.


They add that globally flu causes 646,000 deaths every year.


On July 19 The Telegraph released a very sobering official UK Government Report which lays bare the lunacy of Lockdown and its long term effects on Britain. The headline sums it up:


“Lockdown may cost 200,000 lives, government report shows.”


The report warns over 200,000 people could die because of delays in healthcare and other economic and social effects all caused by lockdown.


The majority of the deaths – 185,000 – are attributed to an extended wait for treatment in the longer term.


But up to 25,000 deaths could come between now and the end of the year because of healthcare delays, according to experts at the Department of Health and Social Care, Office for National Statistics, Government Actuary’s Department and the Home Office.


To put this into an Irish perspective; the Lockdown here could end up killing over 16,000 people, and 2000 before the end of the year.


The latest Corona spin from Ireland’s public health officials and Government is “the 2nd wave,” or in layman’s terms, the return of the bogeyman later in the year.


  1. doomsayers might be right; but not in the way they think. What’s on the way could be a catastrophic wave of lawsuits and tribunals. ENDS.
