Coronavirus: Former MI6 boss says theory COVID-19 came from Wuhan lab must not be dismissed as conspiracy
I feel if it’s a coincidence it’s a MASSIVE one. Also the virus seems to attack everything it can, it’s almost as if it designed to do as much damage as possible. I saw an article yesterday that said even people that weren’t admitted to hospital could still have long ranging health issues.Isn't that simply giving voice to what most people have been thinking anyway?
The Chinese Communist Party claiming innocence, when the pandemic originated in the vicinity of their biotech laboratory does stretch our credulity to breaking point or, as Min put it back at the start of lockdown, "Like an innocent-looking puppy standing next to a steaming puddle."
Exactly. Not to mention the post-viral debilitating symptoms, including a dementia-like "brain fog", chronic fatigue and compromised lung function. This was discussed on BBC 5 Live earlier. Some people who officially "recovered" from Covid19 are still suffering the aftereffects months later and are incapable of returning to work.I feel if it’s a coincidence it’s a MASSIVE one.

And following on from that, Steve Bannon has alleged that some Chinese workers from the Wuhan lab have defected to the West, in advance of a legal case against the Chinese Government for withholding information on the extent of the Covid 19 outbreak during December 2019.Hong Kong-based doctor whistleblower flees to US, gives interview alleging corruption and coverup by WHO and China government.

Russian intelligence services are using a trio of English-language websites to spread disinformation about the coronavirus pandemic, seeking to exploit a crisis that America is struggling to contain ahead of the presidential election in November, U.S. officials said Tuesday.
Two Russians who have held senior roles in Moscow’s military intelligence service known as the GRU have been identified as responsible for a disinformation effort meant to reach American and Western audiences, U.S. government officials said. They spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. ...
Between late May and early July, one of the officials said, the websites singled out Tuesday published about 150 articles about the pandemic response, including coverage aimed either at propping up Russia or denigrating the U.S.
Among the headlines that caught the attention of U.S. officials were “Russia’s Counter COVID-19 Aid to America Advances Case for Détente,” which suggested that Russia had given urgent and substantial aid to the U.S. to fight the pandemic, and “Beijing Believes COVID-19 is a Biological Weapon,” which amplified statements by the Chinese. ...
Though U.S. officials have warned before about the spread of disinformation tied to the pandemic, they went further on Tuesday by singling out a particular information agency that is registered in Russia, InfoRos, and that operates a series of websites — InfoRos.ru, Infobrics.org and OneWorld.press — that have leveraged the pandemic to promote anti-Western objectives and to spread disinformation. ...
In 2019, a European Union task force that studies disinformation campaigns identified One World as “a new addition to the pantheon of Moscow-based disinformation outlets.” The task force noted that One World’s content often parrots the Russian state agenda on issues including the war in Syria.
A report published last month by a second, nongovernmental organization, Brussels-based EU DisinfoLab, examined links between InfoRos and One World to Russian military intelligence. The researchers identified technical clues tying their websites to Russia and identified some financial connections between InfoRos and the government. ...
christ all mighty- you sound like my mum these days. Do you actually check stuff out? Whats happened?Many of the people at the lab may not have known what was going on.
However... that news article says that Bannon is a 'senior Trump ally' - which was true, then he got fired. The relationship with him and Trump is on/off. So it's not clear.
We've all known this for months? Why are you posting it?US and EU disinformation monitors have cited 3 organizations as large-scale COVID-19 disinfo sources and claimed the pandemic disinfo campaign is substantial.

Also isn't this political?We've all known this for months? Why are you posting it?
We've suspected it for some time now. The difference here is that the authoritative monitors have assembled a sufficient case to publicly announce it.We've all known this for months? Why are you posting it?
No - not in the sense that's prohibited on this forum. There's no mention of elected officials, election interference, or any of the other elements that traditionally made "politics" an unwelcome topic.Also isn't this political?
I've only had one test, but I know of people who have had multiple tests.I'm not really sure if this belongs in this section or not really.
But the numbers just don't add up.
Even by simple maths.
UK population is about 66 million.
(And that's ALL people, including those in the 0-18 group)
Official figures for numbers of Covid-19 tests is 16,280,223.
(see 'official' figures on worldometer)
That gives us a figure of 239,707 tests per Million people.
That's about 1 in 4 (ALL people, remember, so including those under 18 that are extremely unlikely to catch C19, or be tested for it)
So by rights, for every four people I know, 1 of them should have had a C19 test.
I'm only aware of one person who has had a C19 test. An NHS nurse.
Nobody that I work with. None of my neighbours.
(And the ratio would be even less, about 1 in 3 when you adjust for age group)
Hertfordshire (here) has a population of about 1.2 million.
Cases per 1 million is stated as 4475,
(again going by worldometer)
so Hertfordshire should be showing about 5370 cases.
But total cases to August 1st is currently 4301.
(BBC 'how many' page - use postcode AL7)
That is 1069 less than it 'should' be.
Which is about 20% less than it 'should' be.
That's a HUGE difference.
If it was only 2% or 3% different then you could say it was statistically insignificant.
But 20% ??????
Worldometer figures are not official. Which is a shame because I like their presentation.
