Coronavirus: How Many Million Will the Global Lockdown Kill?

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA

Around the world millions of people are going to die because of absurd lockdown policies. Serious illness has been ignored. Patients with cancer, heart disease and other threatening diseases have been pushed aside as hospitals have closed their doors to the patients who really needed help. The coming global recession will result in massive, long-term unemployment and mass starvation.

All those responsible for this stupidity should be fired and banished from positions of responsibility.

Despite the fact that more and more doctors around the world now agree with me that the coronavirus scare was viciously oversold and that the lockdowns, mass hysteria and panic have done far more damage than the damned disease, there is no sign of governments abandoning the lunacy.

Experts also now agree (belatedly) with my suggestion (made weeks ago) that governments should have tested everyone and shut in the people who were infected so that the disease couldn’t spread. Simple but very effective.

Huge publicity was recently given to the tragic fact that around the world 250,000 people are alleged to have died with the coronavirus.

But many (possibly most) of those patients did not die because of the coronavirus, they died with it. The two things are very different.

Why are the UK figures the worst in the world?

Well, massive immigration means that England is the most overcrowded nation in Europe but that isn’t the only cause.

I believe the enthusiasm for blaming the coronavirus for just about all deaths was originally inspired by the need to justify the wicked Emergency Bill which gave the police unprecedented powers.

But everyone got too enthusiastic and the trick backfired – leaving the UK with the world’s worst figures and causing the Government massive embarrassment. I doubt if half of the 30,000 alleged to have died of the coronavirus were actually killed by it.

I believe the UK has had the worst people imaginable dealing with the coronavirus.

The important thing that no one ever mentions is that even if 250,000 people had died globally (and they clearly have not) then the coronavirus would still not be as deadly as the flu – which can kill 650,000 in a single season.

No one gets hysterical about the flu, do they?

Around 600,000 people a year die in the UK and I expect the number of deaths from flu and pneumonia will fall as the number linked to the coronavirus has risen. (I’d bet that the mortality figures for flu are going to be very low this year. The drug companies will claim the credit for that. You can guess why.) Later in the year (and next year) the number of deaths from cancer and other abandoned diseases will rocket – as, I fear, will the number of suicides and murders.

Governments and media everywhere (and particularly in the UK) have deliberately built up the terror.

I know that the coronavirus is a very nasty disease. (We both believe we had it back at the start of the year and Antoinette was horribly ill.) But so is the flu. I’ve had bouts of the flu that I thought would kill me. And flu can kill people of all ages – young and old, fit and unfit.

But the coronavirus terror has been built up out of all proportion.

I went into a shop two days ago and the assistant was dressed in a surgical gown, plastic apron, mask, surgical cap covering her hair and rubber gloves. She stood behind a plastic screen and looked terrified. I cannot imagine why she felt she needed to cover her hair. She was holding her hands in the air as though ready to start diving into the chest, abdomen or skull of some invisible patient. The poor woman looked as if she were about to set off to a fancy dress party or to take on a role in a gory horror movie. What is she going to do when the nonsense stops? Will she suddenly leave off all her protective equipment or will she do some grotesque, slow striptease and lose one item a day?

The UK Government’s pathetic attempt to end the crisis they created will be a failure. Allowing people to have picnics on the beach will make the problems worse. People have been off work too long. Many don’t want to go back to work. Government paycheques have made life comfortable in a rather couch potato sort of way. There are no holidays or big events to look forward to. Everything is grey. And the fear will still be there. So, even if the jobs are there, why go back to work?

The only solution is to act fast and definitively. End the lockdown immediately. Abandon all the Ferguson inspired nonsenses.

My new book Coming Apocalypse explains how we got into this mess and what is going to happen now. Having analysed the past I did my best to assess the future that Ferguson, Johnson et al have created. Everything I put on my website has been proved accurate. Now we are facing more serious threats to our health and freedom.

Ferguson and Johnson et al thought that we were heading for an apocalypse. They were right. But the apocalypse will not be caused by the coronavirus but by their so-called 'cure’. It no longer matters how much of it was due to a cock-up and how much was due to a conspiracy.

Antoinette and I worked hard to put this book together as quickly as possible, and then fought to get it published, in the hope that if enough people read it (and understand the future we face) then we might be able to put pressure on the politicians to act decisively. There is far too much text to put onto the website (the book is 133 pages long) but the prices of the eBook and the paperback are, as always with my books, the cheapest possible. I’ll spend the royalties on adverts for the book (if anyone will sell me advertising space!) so that more people know the truth.

Whatever happens, we have to prepare ourselves for a very different world.

The Bank of England says that although a recession is coming, it may all be fine by next year. So, given the Bank’s track record, I think that is as good a guarantee as you are likely to see that we are well and truly stuffed for eternity and a half. (I wish I could get hold of a crate of whatever it is that the highly paid BoE staffers are quaffing. It must be pretty potent stuff.)

My book Coming Apocalypse is available on Amazon as an eBook and as a paperback. I hope it helps spread an understanding of what has happened and what is going to happen next.

We are not alone, dear reader. We are in this together. Please help me spread the real truth to an ever wider audience.
