500 German medical doctors say Covid 19 is a scam – 3 million march in protest

Tap News

A group of over 500 medical doctors in Germany called ‘Doctors for Information’ made a shocking statement during a national press conference: (1)

‘The Corona panic is a play. It’s a scam. A swindle. It’s high time we understood that we’re in the midst of a global crime.’

Covid 19 biggest scam ever, 12 million sign up in Europe to march, 3 million turned up.

This large group of medical experts publishes a medical newspaper on 500,000 copies every week, to inform the public about the massive misinformation in the mainstream media.

They also organized mass protests in Europe, like the one on August 29, 2020 where 12 million people signed up and several millions actually showed up.

Why do these 500+ medical doctors say the pandemic is a global crime? What do they know, that we don’t?

‘Covid-19 is a false pandemic created for political purposes. This is a world dictatorship with a sanitary excuse. We urge doctors, the media and political authorities to stop this criminal operation, by spreading the truth.’ (2)

 

Germany and Spain are just two examples. Similar large groups of hundreds of medical experts exist in countries across the world.

In the USA a documentary called PLANDEMIC, which exposes COVID-19 as a criminal operation, is supported by over 27,000 medical doctors!

Why are these thousands of medical professionals worldwide saying the pandemic is a crime? What information do they have access to, that we are not getting from the mainstream media?

I invite you to look at the following facts with an open mind and then come to your own conclusions…

Millions Of COVID-19 Test Kits Sold In 2017 And 2018

As we know the new COVID-19 disease appeared in China towards the end of 2019. Therefore it was named COVID-19 which is an acronym for Corona Virus Disease 2019.

Data from the World Integrated Trade Solution, however, shows something astonishing:

“in 2017 and 2018 – two years before COVID-19 – hundreds of millions of test kits for COVID-19 were distributed worldwide.”

 

This baffling data was discovered by someone on September 5, 2020, who posted it on social media. The next day it went viral all over the world.

On September 6 the WITS suddenly changed the original designation ‘COVID-19’ into the vague ‘Medical Test Kits’.

This is not allowed in trade, because you always have to be specific. There are many types of test kits for different diseases.

The fact that they removed the specification ‘COVID-19’, after this data became known worldwide, proves that they don’t want anyone to know about it.

They however forgot to delete one detail: the product code for these ‘Medical Test Kits’ is 300215 which means: ‘COVID-19 Test Kits’.

In 2015 a ‘System and Method for Testing for COVID-19’ was patented by Richard Rothschild, with a Dutch government organisation.

Did you catch that? In 2015 – four years before the disease even existed – a testing method for COVID-19 was developed. (2B)

There it is readers you will have to put up with the Coronahoax until at least 2025, that is of course unless you take the matter into your own hands……

Don’t show this to any Premier or the PM

If Dangerous Dan gets this post Victorians should be fearful.  Likewise if Queensland’s new leader Dr Jeanette Young reads this she will have Covid cops under your bed with a box full of useless masks!

Watch out for Dangerous Dan or Dr Young’s Covid cops with masks

I am not even kidding. The world has become completely insane and most people are just accepting “the new normal.”

GENOCIDE of aged care home residents  

by staff writers   

Relatives of the many hundreds of aged care home residents who have died across Australia with Coronavirus comorbidities or the small number from it should launch a criminal class action against each state’s chief health officer and their federal counterparts for not administering the inexpensive, proven Covid preventatives, hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin.

https://cairnsnews.org/2020/08/11/withholding-medicines-during-a-pandemic-is-criminal-genocidal-behaviour/

Every state Premier and Health Minister should be joined in the action as a co-perpetrator of genocide.

Based on the best medical advice available, billionaire Gold Coast businessman Clive Palmer purchased 33 million doses of hydroxychloroquine costing approximately 40 cents each in April and donated the Covid cure to the National Medical stockpile.

Queensland’s Chief Health Officer Dr Jeanette Young in under police protection but is firmly in the death grip of the medical mafia forcing her to regulate against the use of hydroxychloroquine, a cheap and effective, proven Covid cure

Indicating the extent of the medical mafia’s deadly grip on governments, the unintelligent and compromised Queensland Labor Party Government regulated hydroxychloroquine to prevent doctors from prescribing the life-saving drug which has almost no known side effects unlike toxic vaccines being developed.

Serious medical complications have been slowing human testing of a Coronavirus vaccine throughout the world leaving human guinea pigs physically injured or dead.

How medical researchers believe they can manufacture a vaccine to prevent broad spectrum Coronaviruses which are unable to be isolated in laboratory testing beggars belief.

It simply demonstrates the Big Pharma medical mafia’s financial stranglehold on the World Health Organisation (incidentally whose CEO is an avowed communist terrorist), and governments worldwide.

Trump has defunded the WHO and soon the UN but compromised Australian politicians sail on blithely uncaring about the irreversible psychological and economic damage they are inflicting on a hapless population.

Unfortunately the majority of Aussies for two generations have been dumbed-down by the medical mafia’s fluoridation of much of the populace combined with zombifying television, mobile phones and Marxist universities.

There is no fight left in subdued Aussies and they don’t even know they have been stupefied intentionally by the treacherous, subliminal activities of the medical mafia, politicians and the bureaucracy.

Trump loosens stranglehold of Big Pharma

President Trump signed an executive order Sunday to lower the cost of prescription drugs, he revealed on Twitter.

Trump announced that the aim of the order is to reduce prices to give America “the same low price Big Pharma gives to other countries.”

“Just signed a new Executive Order to LOWER DRUG PRICES! My Most Favored Nation order will ensure that our Country gets the same low price Big Pharma gives to other countries,” the president tweeted. “The days of global freeriding at America’s expense are over…”

“…and prices are coming down FAST! Also just ended all rebates to middlemen, further reducing prices,” he added in a follow-up tweet.

The Trump administration has regularly placed drug costs at the heart of its health policy, with the president already signing a series of four orders in July to lower drug prices.

The Great Reset: Davos, the plot to cancel Trump and destroy economies

Best video of the year explaining the World Economic Forum’s plan to remove Trump and force a world reset, installing the New World Order, supported by Australian bankers’ man PM Morrison and the LNP/ALP/Greens triumvirate:

by Alexandra Bruce

I’ve been pleasantly surprised to discover that one of the most consistently hard-hitting and incisive sources of news and analysis on YouTube is Remnant TV, a channel published by The Remnant, a St. Paul, Minnesota-based Catholic newspaper that bills itself as the “Oldest traditional Catholic newspaper in the world” and is strongly critical of Pope Francis and of all the Globalist policies currently endorsed by the Catholic Church.

 This eye-opening documentary published 3 weeks ago on August 6th, hosted by The Remnant Editor, Michael Matt explores what’s really going on with the global pandemic.

 He takes us to Switzerland—to the World Economic Forum—where the movers and shakers of the world meet in Davos to discuss the implementation of UN Sustainable Development Goals in order to fundamentally “transform” every aspect of life as we know it.

 They want a New World Order and the only thing standing in their way, at the moment is Donald Trump.

PM says free vaccines for all, omits the word compulsory

from Prime Minister’s office

Australians will be among the first in the world to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, if it proves successful, through an agreement between the Australian Government and UK-based drug company AstraZeneca.

Under the deal, every single Australian will be able to receive the University of Oxford COVID-19 vaccine for free, should trials prove successful, safe and effective.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the Oxford University trial was in a phase three stage and more work was needed to prove its viability.

Prime Minister Morrison is an advocate for a free Covid vaccine, which nearly every responsiible epidemiologist says won’t work because the coronavirus which is present in every human, has not been isolated. Morrison has stepped back from his “compulsory” comment but will ensure ‘no jab-no pay’

“The Oxford vaccine is one of the most advanced and promising in the world, and under this deal we have secured early access for every Australian,” the Prime Minister said.

“If this vaccine proves successful we will manufacture and supply vaccines straight away under our own steam and make it free for 25 million Australians.

“However, there is no guarantee that this, or any other, vaccine will be successful, which is why we are continuing our discussions with many parties around the world while backing our own researchers at the same time to find a vaccine.

“We are taking advice from Australia’s best medical and scientific expertise to ensure that the Government’s work to select, produce and purchase COVID-19 vaccines and treatments is based on the best available knowledge.”

The Prime Minister also remains committed to ensuring early access to the vaccine for countries in our Pacific family, as well as regional partners in Southeast Asia.

The Government has also released Australia’s COVID-19 Vaccine and Treatment Strategy, guided by a group of medical and industry experts.

The Strategy sets out Australia’s approach to acquire doses of safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines based on:

1. Research and development

2. Purchase and manufacturing

3. International partnerships

4. Regulation and safety Immunisation administration and monitoring

The first announcements under the strategy are the signing of a Letter of Intent with AstraZeneca to supply the University of Oxford’s COVID-19 vaccine candidate to Australia and a consumables contract with Becton Dickinson for the supply of needles and syringes.

The Letter of Intent covers vaccine development, production and distribution. It commits to production of the vaccine in Australia, subject to safety and effectiveness.

A final formal agreement will include distribution, timing and price of the vaccine.

Becton Dickinson has been contracted to supply vital consumables, such as needles and syringes, to ensure that we can deliver vaccine doses as soon as we have them.

Minister for Health, Greg Hunt, said “From early on Australian officials led by my department has been meeting with developers and manufacturers of a number of promising vaccine candidates, both domestic and international, over recent months.

“We are confident these actions and targeted investments will put us in the best possible position to secure early access to safe and effective vaccines for Australia.”

The country’s most experienced scientists, biotech and pharmaceutical experts have been brought together to provide advice on acquiring a portfolio of safe and effective COVID-19 vaccinations.

The COVID-19 Vaccines and Treatments for Australia – Science and Industry Technical Advisory Group met for the first time earlier this week.

The advisory group is led by Professor Brendan Murphy, Secretary of the Department of Health, who has a leading role in managing the Government’s pandemic response.

The group will also provide advice on implementing Australia’s COVID-19 Vaccine and Treatment Strategy that drives the Government’s work with the states and territories, research organisations, industry, regulators and other countries.

Minister for Industry, Science and Technology Karen Andrews said Australia’s manufacturing capability is a huge asset in the push to deliver a COVID vaccine.

“The Australian pharmaceutical industry and its ability to produce vaccines is already among the best in the world and that puts us in a strong position to be able to roll out a COVID vaccine as quickly as possible,” Minister Andrews said.

“Through a coordinated approach and strategic investments we can also improve our knowledge and strengthen our manufacturing capability to respond in the future.”

Australia is contributing significantly to vaccine development work both in Australia and around the world, investing $333 million in vaccines, therapeutics and COVID medicines – including $256 million in vaccines.

This includes $5 million for the University of Queensland’s innovative “molecular clamp” COVID-19 vaccine. This Australian vaccine has commenced trials here in Australia.

The University of Queensland has partnered with CSL to manufacture its vaccine here in Australia. CSL has made a commitment that its dose allocation of the University of Queensland vaccine will be used, at a minimum, to support its long-standing public health commitment to the Australian community

By Editor, Cairns News

MORE Victorian freedom fighters have joined walking and gathering protests on the streets of Dandenong, west of Melbourne.

Dozens of police cars swarmed another protest near the George Andrews Reserve soccer ground yesterday.

Between Monday and yesterday seven of the walkers were arrested and police issued 31 fines for “breaching the chief health officer’s directions”. On Saturday, September 5th, a mass protest is planned for the city.

Self-appointed Victorian dictator Dan Andrews, again using daily media briefings to massage the reality of his unwarranted iron grip on the people of the state, said the protesters “put at risk a lot of the gains we have made”.

Additional protesters joined the walks on the streets yesterday, as can be seen at the Nine News link above.

Radio station Gold 104.3 earlier reported police broke up the second anti-lockdown protest where the first of the fines of $1652 were issued for breaching COVID directions. An alleged organiser of the rallies was also arrested and charged with incitement, the station reported.

NZ High Court ruling a minor setback for big party COVID fascism

There’s talk that Bill and Melinda and Ms Ardern are all trannies. Perhaps that’s indicative of the deception going on at global corporate and government levels through the scamdemic.

By Tony Mobilifonitis
KIWIS face the most crucial election in their history on October 17, with both major parties – Labor and the “opposition” Nationals – now united on running with the medical dictatorship model driven by the Gates-Rockefeller-World Economic Forum “global health” cabal.
Despite the New Zealand High Court’s bizarre recent ruling that the first nine days of Ardern’s lockdown was “unlawful but justified”, the National Party leader Judith Collins has joined with Ardern in using “the virus” to impose a medical tyranny.
Collins wants to make it compulsory for everyone entering the country and border workers to carry contact tracing technology, which is the thin edge of the wedge for the vaccination certificates floated by her fellow fake conservative across the Tasman, Scott Morrison.
There is little or nothing separating the COVID policies of the major parties on either side of the ditch, prompting another desperate attempt by NZ Public Party leader Billy Te Kahika to rally the collection of minor parties into some sort of united front that can mount an effective challenge at the election.
Under New Zealand’s mixed-member proportional (MMP) electoral system, introduced in 1996, smaller parties have a better chance of gaining seats, especially in alliances.
“I will approach minor parties again because we need to work together to defend democracy and protect our economy. We are dealing with a very hostile government,” he said on a recent YouTube broadcast. He says 87% of all businesses in Auckland are on some sort of government subsidy, which makes a joke of Ardern’s Labor Party election slogan “Let’s Keep Moving”.
“We’ve got people just creating fear and panic to create systems of control like we’ve never seen. We have less than 40 cases in New Zealand but we’ve got roadblocks, checkpoints and normalization of mask wearing.”
NZPP has formed an alliance with ex-Nationals MP Jami-Lee Ross, whose Advance New Zealand Party has also merged with several other smaller parties. An alliance of small parties in 1996 won 10 per cent of the total vote, gaining 13 MPs. Australian minor parties have to rely on preference distributions which can, in rare circumstances, put a larger minor party like One Nation into a seat.
One Nation Senator Pauline Hanson, by the way, has taken a strong stand against Morrison’s vaccine push, declaring in a new video she will not have any COVID vaccine shot. She already does not take flu shots. This should be a major issue in the upcoming Queensland state election on October 31.
Morrison’s proposed deal with the pharma giant Astra Zeneca to push the so-called Oxford Vaccine is nothing more than a neo-Nazi eugenics system which makes unvaccinated people a restricted class of outcasts, banned from restaurants, jobs, government entitlements, education and travel.
The policy recalls Hitler’s Germany in 1935-36, when Jews were denied the vote and banned from all professional jobs, effectively preventing them from exerting any influence in education, politics, higher education and industry.
Meanwhile Ardern, the neo-fascist witch of the south, has upped the ante in pushing her medical tyranny even further, with new “rules” forcing people testing positive to COVID-19 (or is it just coronavirus i.e. colds and flu?) to quarantine in “government facilities” for two weeks. Those who refuse tests get four weeks incarceration for exercising their right at common law to informed consent to medical treatment.
Te Kahika says he heard from desperate families inside the detention centres where there’s no-one to talk to from health department. He’s alarmed that health authorities will detain family members and separate them from children.
In one incident late in July members of a young family absconded from a quarantine facility to go to the tangi (funeral) of the father. They had tested negative but been refused an exemption to go to Auckland from the facility in Hamilton.
The High Court case last week was initiated by Wellington lawyer Andrew Borrowdale, who challenged the legality of the early stages of the lockdown, including calls by Ardern and others between March 26 and April 3 for New Zealanders to stay home.
In a bizarre ruling, the court found that while there was “no question that the requirement was a necessary, reasonable and proportionate response to the COVID-19 crisis at the time”, it was not prescribed by law and was therefore contrary to section 5 of the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act.

Hydroxychloroquine has been proven safe in more than 1 million patients

By Dr Harvey Risch

As of Wednesday, some 165,000 people in the United States have died from COVID-19. I have made the case in the American Journal of Epidemiology and in Newsweek that people who have a medical need to be treated can be treated early and successfully with hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and antibiotics such as azithromycin or doxycycline. I have also argued that these drugs are safe and have made that case privately to the Food and Drug Administration.

The pushback has been furious. Dr. Anthony Fauci has implied that I am incompetent, notwithstanding my hundreds of highly regarded, methodologically relevant publications in peer-reviewed scientific literature. A group of my Yale colleagues has publicly intimated that I am a zealot who is perpetrating a dangerous hoax and conspiracy theory. I have been attacked in news articles by journalists who, ignorant of the full picture, have spun hit pieces from cherry-picked sources.

Eminent doctor says ignore Big Pharma and fake media – hydroxychloroquine is safe and effective to treat Covid

These personal attacks are a dangerous distraction from the real issue of hydroxychloroquine’s effectiveness, which is solidly grounded in both substantial evidence and appropriate medical decision-making logic. Much of the evidence is presented in my articles.

To date, there are no studies whatsoever, published or in pre-print, that provide scientific evidence against the treatment approach for high-risk outpatients that I have described. None. Assertions to the contrary, whether by Fauci, the FDA, or anyone else, are without foundation. They constitute misleading and toxic disinformation.

What do you need to know to evaluate these smears against hydroxychloroquine? The first thing to understand is that COVID-19 has two main stages. At the first stage, it is a flu-like illness. That illness will not kill you. If you are a high-risk patient and begin treatment immediately, you will almost certainly be done with it in a few days. When not treated, high-risk patients may progress. The virus then causes severe pneumonia and attacks many organs, including the heart. In this second stage, hydroxychloroquine is not effective.

So, if you are told that hydroxychloroquine doesn’t work, ask this question: In which patients? Does it not work in those who have just started to have symptoms, or those sick enough to require hospitalization?

The second thing to know is that most low-risk patients survive without treatment. Low risk means you are under age 60 and have no chronic conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and hypertension, have no past treatment for cancer, are not immunocompromised, etc. High risk means you are over 60 or you have one or more of those chronic conditions. High-risk patients need immediate treatment when they first show symptoms. One should not wait for the COVID-19 test result, which can take days and can be wrong. Again, when Fauci and others say that randomized controlled trials show no benefit for hydroxychloroquine, you must ask: In which group of patients?

Every randomized controlled trial to date that has looked at early outpatient treatment has involved low-risk patients, patients who are not generally treated. In these studies, so few untreated control patients have required hospitalization that significant differences were not found. There has been only one exception: In a study done in Spain with low-risk patients, a small number of high-risk nursing home patients were included. For those patients, the medications cut the risk of a bad outcome in half.

I reiterate: If doctors, including any of my Yale colleagues, tell you that scientific data show that hydroxychloroquine does not work in outpatients, they are revealing that they can’t tell the difference between low-risk patients who are not generally treated and high-risk patients who need to be treated as quickly as possible. Doctors who do not understand this difference should not be treating COVID-19 patients.

What about medication safety? On July 1, the FDA posted a “black-letter warning” cautioning against using hydroxychloroquine “outside of the hospital setting,” meaning in outpatients. But on its website just below this warning, the FDA stated that the warning was based on data from hospitalized patients. To generalize and compare severely ill patients with COVID-induced pneumonia and possibly heart problems to outpatients is entirely improper.

In fact, the FDA has no information about adverse events in early outpatient use of hydroxychloroquine. The only available systematic information about adverse events among outpatients is discussed in my article in the American Journal of Epidemiology, where I show that hydroxychloroquine has been extremely safe in more than a million users.

It is a serious and unconscionable mistake that the FDA has used inpatient data to block emergency use petitions for outpatient use. Further, already back in March, the FDA approved the emergency use of hydroxychloroquine for hospitalized patients, for whom it is demonstrably less effective than for outpatients. If hydroxychloroquine satisfied the FDA criteria for emergency inpatient use in March, it should more than satisfy those criteria now for outpatient use, where the evidence is much stronger.

I can only speculate about the cause of the FDA’s recalcitrance. Hydroxychloroquine is an inexpensive, generic medication. Unlike certain profit-generating, patented medications, which have been promiscuously touted on the slimmest of evidence, hydroxychloroquine has no natural financial constituency. No one will get rich from it.

Further, it seems quite possible that the FDA, a third of whose funding comes from drug companies, is under intense pressure from those companies to be extremely conservative in its handling of hydroxychloroquine. If hydroxychloroquine is used widely and comes to be recognized as highly effective, the markets for expensive and patented COVID-19 medications, including intravenous drugs that can only be used in the hospital, will shrink substantially.

Whatever the reason for the FDA’s stonewalling on hydroxychloroquine, this much is certain: Americans are dying unnecessarily, the economy is in disarray, and the threads that bind our society together have frayed. I am speaking out, but where is everyone else? Where are our elected officials, including those who are themselves physicians? Some, including Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona, have been discussing evidence of the drug’s effectiveness, but where are the rest?

This issue should not be a partisan one. If our elected officials are not willing to pry open the FDA, we must elect new officials. Why are we silent? The time to speak is now.

Harvey Risch, M.D., Ph.D., is a professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health.

Covid testing shows colds, flu, flu injections and HIV

Letter to the Editor

Gates and Fauci Belong in Prison for Murder
The testing for Covid and counting the deaths is utter fiction. Fauci knows it, Bill Gates knows it. The tests are not testing for Covid 19; they are testing for any corona virus including the flu and the common cold. Of course the numbers are going off the chart. But counting the “deaths” from Covid 19 is far more fictional. The government pays hospitals for any uninsured person the hospital reports as being Covid positive.

Google, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook have decided that they alone can determine what the serfs think. If 100 doctors get together and create a website showing that HCQ works under proper use, the social media giants will shut off access to the website and try to get the doctors fired. You may want to think about that as well. If those companies are taking government money and they all are, that makes them a utility. We have a real problem in this country when the FBI and DOJ pick the president and social media tells us what we can and can’t think or read.

No more recorded influenza cases in Australia

Letter to the Editor

Government lies, damn lies and statistics

– Victorian Population – 6,359,000

– COVID tests conducted – 1,633,900
– COVID cases – 11,557
– Positive cases to Victorian population – 0.18%
– Positive Case to Test Conducted Percentage – 0.70%

– COVID Deaths – 123
– Positive COVID Case Death rate – 1.06%
– COVID deaths to tests conducted – 0.0075% (read that again…)
– COVID deaths to total Victorian population: 0.0019% (read that again…)
– Median Age of COVID deaths: 82
– Australia’s life expectancy at 2017 – 82.50

There is a highly unusual occurrence in the 2020 influenza data. Based on the included charts , you will see there was a steadily increasing number of influenza cases at the start of 2020 that was almost in lockstep with the 2019 (record-breaking) influenza season. This was until March – at week 11 (when lockdown started), the influenza numbers across the country suddenly dropped off to almost zero at the same time as COVID numbers increased. The flu has remained at almost zero since (nearly 20 weeks later). Now, of course with lockdowns, increased sanitisation and social distancing, this would always reduce the spread of the flu in roughly equal proportion to the spread of COVID.

However (and here is where it gets mysterious), if the trigger for a large number of tests being conducted is people with “flu-like symptoms”, and 1.6 million COVID tests have been conducted with only 11.5k (0.7%) positive COVID cases, then by extension a reasonable portion of the 1.6 million tests should actually be the flu. Right?

Even if we took a rather conservative estimate of only 10% of tests conducted being the actual flu, this would still equate to a bit over 160,000 flu cases (or roughly half of last year’s national flu cases) – that is a lot. It is almost as if the existence of COVID and the flu are mutually exclusive. How is this possible?

Why is it that lab-confirmed influenza reporting has virtually stopped (not entirely but as close to stopped as you can get)?

Influenza has been an increasingly growing concern for the government and health departments over the past 3 or so years (with a record ~300,000 lab-confirmed influenza cases last year – nationally). It killed 902 people around the country, it appears to hit the vulnerable communities in just the same way COVID does.

So questions to be asked that the flu and COVID data raises

1. How did influenza numbers almost immediately stop at lockdown and have virtually remain flatlined since – even mid-way into peak season and even during a COVID second wave?

2. Why does it look as though COVID numbers have directly replaced flu numbers, yet the positive case to test ratio is still so low (0.70%)

3. If COVID remained contagious despite the implemented controls, why has the flu’s contagion rate almost completely fallen to zero?

4. Of all the people who showed “flu-like” symptoms but tested negative, why do they not show up on the flu data? If they had flu-like symptoms but not COVID, then what did they have?

5. Why has flu reporting stopped, and what are the implications of not having continuity in flu reporting, long term healthcare planning and management?

6. Who stands to gain by not reporting the flu during COVID?

7. What agendas are playing out on the absence of flu data as a reasonable and reliable baseline?

8. If COVID cases are still occurring (second wave), should there not be an equal/corresponding spike in regular flu cases (in line with the symptomatic but negative COVID tests) from people moving around?

9. If the flu has almost completely disappeared and has for the most part been replaced by COVID, will we ever be free of COVID? And further, if this is now the case, what is the acceptable target of COVID cases in circulation before we can get “back to normal”?

10. If contact tracing and tracking the spread of a new virus that symptomatically looks like the flu is important, why would the flu not be tested at the same time as covid to map how the flu is transmitting and behaving alongside COVID?

11. Is testing for flu not equally as important and responsible so people who test negative to covid but positive to the flu still operate safely in public?
