On 12 March, British PM Boris Johnson informed the public that families would continue to “lose loved ones before their time” as the coronavirus outbreak worsens. He added:

We’ve all got to be clear, this is the worst public health crisis for a generation.”

In a report, the Imperial College had warned of modelling that suggested over 500,000 would die from the virus in the UK. The lead author of the report, epidemiologist Neil Ferguson, has since revised the estimate downward to a maximum of 20,000 if current ‘lockdown’ measures work. Johnson seems to have based his statement on Ferguson’s original figures.

by Thierry Meyssan

While the public’s eyes are riveted on the progression of coronavirus numbers, a profound reorganization of the executive is taking place, giving primacy to senior health officials over policy. In the shadows, bankers and soldiers are agitating in the hope of confiscating power for their own benefit.

NHS Must Explain Role Of Surveillance Company in Covid Battle

30 March 2020 — True Publica

By Rob Woodward – TruePublica: Peter Theil is the co-founder of PayPal and Palantir Technologies. Palantir is a data-mining company – nice words for it activity of surveillance and espionage. Their activities have been found in the past to breach all sorts of privacy laws. Its algorithms vacuumed up emails and browser histories, GPS locations from smartphones, printer and download activity, and transcripts of digitally recorded phone conversations. They comb through financial documents, airline reservations, cellphone records, social media postings—and searches for personal and business connections and work places and at home.

The real reason UK government pushed through such draconian powers?

30 March 2020 — True Publica

By TruePublica: No-one in the mainstream media has made mention of what has happened here. Everyone has remained silent. No public figure of significance has raised an eyebrow. Everyone has gone along with this. Even human rights and civil liberty NGO’s have been motionless by what can only be described as a huge assault on the fundamental freedoms, of movement and assembly in Britain, made by the Johnson government. And why was so much authority needed by this government in the Coronavirus Act right now when they took no heed of the warnings of others about this crisis? It’s because they’ve now understood the opportunity it presents.

An Inglorious Opportunity: Coronavirus and Emergency Powers

30 March 2020 — Counter Currents

by

There has been a hurried spate of cancellations and suspensions of elections across the globe because of the risk posed by COVID-19.  The trend is unsurprising.  In the age of post-democratic process, suspending the procedure should only induce a cough of recognition.  But it is troubling for those who take the ceremonial aspect of these things seriously. Such tendencies have worried Jon Meacham, who went to the history books to remind New York Times readers that President Abraham Lincoln, even during a murderous civil war, would still insist on having an election he could lose.

Lock Step, This Is No Futuristic Scenario: Panic and the Post-Pandemic Future?

10 March 2020 — Global Research

Every day world mainstream news reports more people in more countries diagnosed “positive” for the coronavirus illness, now called COVID-19. As the reported numbers grow, so does widespread nervousness, often in the form of panic shopping for masks, disinfections, toilet paper, canned goods. We are told to accept the testing results as science-based. While it is next to impossible to get a full picture of what is taking place in China, the center of the novel virus storm, there is a process, being fed by mainstream media accounts and genuine panic in populations unclear what the real dangers are, that has alarming implications for the post-pandemic future.
