If I may bore you with a few brief statistics; 1) Hong Kong flu swept 
through the UK in 1967. It came back again in 1968, each year killing a 
similar of people as the current virus, and we survived that withut 
wreckng the economy. In fact we took no notice of it & just got on with 
out lives. 2) Nine out of ten deaths associated with this virus occur in 
the over-75's; one in five deaths occurs in a care home; one quarter of 
deaths occur in diabetics. If you are not in any of these categories, 
the risk of dying from this bug is statistically minuscule. 3) Three 
quarters of people who have had the diseae never even knew they had it. 
4) The number of under-15's in the UK who have died from it is 4. Yes, 
Statistically it seems very similar to the Hong Kong flu in terms of 
outcome. And I am treating it the same way as I did the HK flu, by 
ignoring it or at least keeping it in perspective.
My only real concessions has been to use contactless payment cards 
rather than cash (which has to be one of the easiest ways for the virus 
to find its way from one victim to the next) and not to let people cough 
or spit over me.
The mistake most people make is to watch all those weeping relatives on 
tv and convince themselves we're in the grip of something like the Black 
Death. The reason I describe this as a 'mistake' is that I have details 
of a number of documents fromthe UK government which show that this is 
nothing less than mind control.
Here are a couple of excerpts - the first is from a document entitled 
"Persuasion" prepred by Spi-B for discussion at SAGE #8 on 23r March, if 
youre interested in mmeaningless acronyms;
" Perceived threat;  a substantial number of people still do not feel 
sufficiently personally threatened - it could be that they are reassured 
by the low death rate [.....] the perceived level of personal threat 
needs to be increased among those who are complacent, using hard-hitting 
emotional messaging.....".
Appendis B, titled APEASE (another meaningless acronym) expands on this 
by saying "2 Use media to increase sense of personal threat".
Finally, a doument entitled 'Mindspace' reads thus; "That means that 
citizens ma not fully realize that their behaviour is being changed, or, 
at least, how it is being changed."
In my view this exercise in government thought control represents a far 
greater danger than any glorified flu-bug. The UK government's ENTIRE 
agenda at the outset, not unreasonably, was to "Protect the NHS". We 
have known for many months that the NHS is not under any undue pressure, 
yet the hysteria continues. The whole thing seems to have morphed into 
an attempt to wreck the economy for politial purposes. We need to stop 
believing what we see on the TV news and wake up to what is going on.
