Pandemic of incompetence?




Vitamin D reduced intensive care by 80%. Ministers don’t care? By Joanne Nova.

If a new drug reduced deaths by 10% it would almost get a Nobel Prize — that is, as long as it made someone rich.

At the Hospital del Mar in Barcelona 930 people who turned up with Covid were randomly asked to take a vitamin D3 treatment or a placebo. … In the hapless control group … 21% went on to need Intensive Care (ICU), and 15% ended up dying. Of the 551 people given five dollars worth of Vitamin D, only 5% would go on to need the ICU, and all up 6.5% of people died. …

So, proportionately, more than twice as many people died in the group that missed out on Vitamin D3. …

If you are a normal sane person, this could make you very angry. Lives could have been saved and many hospital beds emptied at almost no cost….

This study was done way back in March, April, and May last year. It’s a Spanish study and it’s only just been published. And the thing that will make you grind your teeth was that nearly a year after this started there are still no good big studies. It’s almost like this one slipped under the radar in the early days and forever after, despite the billions in costs and the millions of patients, no one wants to do a larger follow up? This was an idea so obvious it was organised within weeks of the outbreak, yet one year later, … crickets? …

There are plenty of reasons for human incompetence, but there are serious financial incentives that needs to be addressed. There are huge profits in finding new drugs and almost none in solving the problem with known cheap and unpatentable molecules.

Follow the money. This is exactly the kind of research that our government funded universities and hospitals ought be doing. Yet where are they? Trapped in some public-private agreement? Cowering in fear that they might be cancelled? Think of Craig Kelly MP — he’s under attack for talking about Ivermectin.

The Covid pandemic is a virological bomb, but a lot of the damage is due to a pandemic of corruption and government incompetence.

    • A pissant virus like SARS COV 2 going up against the virus of politicians.

      Not a chance.
      Crushed like a bug !
      Think of Rudd, Gillard, Turnbull, Shorten etc

      What self respecting virus would try to reside on them?
      Even a low self esteem virus would avoid !



      • A good point there howitis.

        A good start to have a list of major politicians, dead or alive, who have had Covid-19. Dates of infection, recovery, so a coroners report with dates of death as well.
        Country by country, maybe compare pre vaccine to post vaccine,
        Also a list of those who got the vaccine? and with which vaccine.
        Then how the health trends of them for some following years?

        The idea is that it would be a lot harder to fudge numbers, and more easily verified by those politicians in their news advents, pubic showings, twitter, etc.

        A good investigative journalist should be able to set this up.
        Was going to say on “face book”? or such “open source”? or “wikipedia”?



  1. Has anyone seen conclusive proof (ie say a reputable paper) that shows this virus has actually been isolated ? ( serious question)

    I know a journalist/news outlet in Europe put up 200k Euro last year, if anyone could front up with the proof, but as of Dec. the money had not been claimed.
