Coronavirus COVID19 LIVE updates

Coronavirus COVID19 LIVE updates – UK chief scientific advisor says UK has at least 55’000 cases and is the second most infected nation on earth.

With 81’080 recovered cases globally and 7’896 dead the closed case death rate for COVID19 has now reached 9.74%.

As COVID19 destroys the global economy, the epicentre of the disease has moved from East Asia to Europe. However one nation is not doing its bit to stem the infection. The UK is actively trying to spread the disease.

UK PM Boris Johnson incorrectly holds the belief that by allowing the entire population to become infected the country can build up what he calls “herd immunity” something for which there is no medical or scientific support. It has repeatedly been confirmed that patients can contract COVID19 more than once and no immunity can be formed. (Read more…)

As the international community condemn the UK for endangering the global economy and health, the UK’s Chief Scientific Advisor has turned whistleblower.

Sir Patrick Vallance has pleaded with MPs in the hope to by pass Boris’ insanity and save potentially millions of British lives.

During a hearing of the Health Select Committee, chairman Jeremy Hunt questioned Sir Patrick on the government’s very questionable official statistics. The UK’s official advice for the infected is to simply remain at home and not to seek medical assistance or report your infection unless it is life threatening (Read more…). This reckless and dangerous advice is the exact opposite to the WHO’s official advise which is to test all suspected cases.

Due to this the UK has no way of knowing how many infected or dead the country has. This means that Boris’ official figures of 1’950 infected and 71 dead is likely just a drop in the ocean.

When questioned on the figures Sir Patrick confirmed that the realistic current number of infected in the UK is currently 55’000 infected people.

Sir Patrick said: “We’ve tried to get a handle on that in Sage (Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies) and if you put all the modelling information together, that’s a reasonable ballpark way of looking at it.” Referring to the infected figure of 55’000.

When asked for the most optimistic death toll for the UK Sir Patrick said that if stringent measures and restrictions were to be put in to place now then he hoped that the UK death toll could be limited to 20’000 (more than double the current global death toll). However without any such measures Boris’ plan could potentially leave millions dead.

Boris has repeatedly refused to close school in a move which has angered world leaders and global health professionals.

Boris officially maintains that the UK still only has 1’950 cases of COVID19 with 71 deaths. A figure that is a blatant lie when you consider that the UK is not testing for the viral disease and has told infected people not to report it.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.

“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
