Princess Cruises ships had early COVID-19 outbreaks but few people died - truth of COVID concealed


Back in February 2020, when we were just starting to hear reports that a previously unknown killer virus that had been on the loose in The Peoples Republic Of \China for a few months had escaped and was set to rampage around the world infecting everybody and killing hundreds od milions according to the more sensationalist type of tabloid newspapers and left wing TV , radio and internet news channels, a holiday company named Princess Cruises found itself thrust into the spotlight when an outbreak of COVID-19 on the cruise line's Diamond Princess caused the ship to be put into quariantine. 

Out of 2,600 people on board the ship, 700 were infected with the SARS-COV2 virus that causes COVID-19, and more than a dozen died. At one point, the ship had the highest concentration of coronavirus cases outside China. SHOCK HORROR style headlines led news reports of the ship's plight and the casual viewer / listener / reader could be forgiven for assuming that all on board the ship were doomed.

Statistics are slippery things of course and the news reports gave a vastly exaggerated picture of the situation. establishing a patter that has continued through the pandemic. So let's apply a bit of perspective. First when the reports mention that 700 people were infected, that does not mean that 700 go sick. It means 700 out of 2,600 tested positive. Anyone who has followed the pandemic as this blog has will be aware that around 90% of "cases" are asyptomatic, which means the person developed no symptoms. So if we dig deep into the reports (a task we set ourselves when we started blogging in 2003 on another platform,) we find that 250something people were actually ill (around 10%) and 12 died ( which is around one half of one percent, roughly in line with the infection to fatality rate (IFR) observed worldwide.

Since then it has emerged that 99% of COVID deaths occurred in people over the age of 75 or who were already seriously ill with other potentially fatal problems (obesity, heart failure, diabetes etc.) So the panic that was partially triggered by the saga of The Diamond Princess was based on hideously distorted statistics. And putting the ship in quarantine was pointless too as the disease jumped ship or was already widespread when the story of the Diamond Princess broke, and continued to spread around the world.

"The quarantine process failed," Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, told American newspaper USA TODAY. Quite how it failed is not clear, as only an idiot who knows nothing about how viruses spread would ever sugggest a disease could be confined aboard one ship.

Shortly after passengers disembarked, another Princess ship, and with COVID-19 cases reported on other cruise ships, the U.S. cruise business was shut down for over a year.

Jan Swartz, group president of Holland America Group, which includes Princess Cruises, had a front seat to the mayhem as COVID-19 spread through ships and across the world. Swartz has served as president of Princess Cruises since 2013 and was promoted to her group president role in December.

About 16 months after the cruise industry was shuttered, the Carnival cruise line is back in service with a vaccine requirement in accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But have the lessons learned by cruise operators, scientists and healthcare agencied been the right ones, or have these groups been fooled by the distortions of their own narrative?

There are three ways the quarantine could have failed , according  to Bahrat Pankhania, public health lecturer at the University of Exeter. First, some passengers may have beenincubating the disease before the ship was quarantined –  one passenger who  was already sick disembarked in Hong Kong, and ten more departed a few days later. "Then slowly over a period of time they became infected," Pankhania suggests.

The second possibility is that the virus has spread despite the quarantine. Given the restrictions, such as passengers keeping to cabins and staff delivering meals wearing masks, this would might seem unfeasible though with hindsight the failure of masking and social distancing to curb the spread of the virus has shown these measures to be completely ineffective. 

The spread could also have been exacerbated by passengers not following rules. Chants of "USA! USA!" were allegedly heard from a woman standing on her balcony, not wearing a mask despite talking to a passenger on an adjacent balcony a few feet away . The incident was reported by another passenger, Matthew Smith. "If there are secondary infections onboard, this is why: idiots who don't know any better," the sneaky little shit Smith tweeted.  

There's a third route for infection that is concerning, which Pankhania says has precedent in Legionnaires Disease: in theory the ship'sair conditioning system linking cabins. That idea was explored after the SARS outbreak of 2003, with researchers trying to account for how the disease spread between people without direct contact in one hotel. "An infection occurred which moved from the bottom of the building to a distant part of the building via the air conditioning system, infecting people very distant from each other," he says.

There are some caveats to be aware of before jumping to such simplistic conclusions, first there's o lot we still don't know about the Wuhan coronavirus. So far, Sars-CoV-2 appears to travel via droplets – what's expelled from your face when you cough or sneeze or even exhale – which is why authorities are working on the assumption that you need "close contact" to spread the virus, which means being within two meters of someone for 15 minutes.  But anyone with the slightest understanding of how thermal currents in the air work will know that droplets can travel considerable distances in a short time.

Another important feature is the number of people who contract the virus and remain completely asymptomatic. In extremely well-defined scenarios such as the Diamond Princess cruise liner and the Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier almost 66 per cent of the positive tests were completely asymptomatic, while a report from China suggests 78 per cent of cases were asymptomatic.
<a href="">
Another aspect of this pandemic that makes it different to all others (apart from the fact that the World Health Organiation changed the definition of pasndemic in order to spread fear and panic more wuickly is the way government have bought the mass media lock, stock and barrel, at vast expense, with the sole purpose, it seems, of hammering home a message of impending doom. 

Instead of factual and objective reporting, for the past 18 months we the people have been subjected daily to a stream of scaremongering propaganda.  Instead of calming our fears with facts and rational arguments, they have flooded all branches of news media with slogans calculated to maintain panic; with dishonest news stories  designed to manipulate emotions; out-of-context death counts and wrongful ascription of cause-of-death to COVID, wilful obfuscation of the difference between cases and infections, a criminally dodgy PCR test and graphs and computer models (rubbish in, rubbish out) carefully selected to emphasise the worst possible eventualities.

And not content to cow the public into unquestioning obedience to fascistic authoritarianism with a constant diet of skewed and incomplete information, they have deployed the army’s 77 Brigade to troll social media exchanges and snuff out any lingering dissent  –  or, as the government prefer to call it, “misinformation“.  The aim can only be to induce maximum public terror in the face of a virus which, without all this deceptive ballyhoo, would hardly have been noticed by the population at large.

Why are they doing this? Why are The PowersThat Be determined to force on us the idea that some very dodgy vaccines are our only hope of salavation from this killer plague that actually does no kill very many people?  Surely at this stage there must be awareness that increasing numbers of highly esteemed and experienced scientists contest policies which are killing vastly more people than they are saving, and which will go on killing well into the future! How many people have dies because of locdowns? The spike in suicides, though tragic, is probably not numerically significant but thousands have died of cancer, cardio - vascular problems and other diseases because medical treatment has been withdrawn or delayed? And what will be the cost in lives of the economic damage inflicted on the developed nations by lockdowns?

True, non-scientists could get lost in all the reams of conflicting information churned out since we were first put on terror alert back in February and March, but one question is both fundamental and easily answered:  are excess mortality figures for this year significantly above average?  Only a huge and sustained divergence from the norm would indicate the presence of a new disease deadly enough to justify the extraordinary measures the government have taken.  

The Euromomo charts for the UK show no such anomaly. In Northern Ireland there has never been any substantial increase in deaths overall.  In Wales, too, mortality has hardly diverged from the normal range.  Scotland had a well-above-average peak in the spring, but since then has remained almost entirely within the bounds of normality.  Even populous England, despite a death rate which soared sharply to a great height in March before falling equally sharply back by the middle of June, has spent most of the year chugging along below the “substantial increase” line, with the usual increase as winter approaches.  A further chart at Covid-19 in Proportion? shows that

Levels of mortality in 2019/2020 are very similar to those suffered in 1999/2000

Definitely not the Black Death, then, nor even the 1918 influenza. In fact, one of the world’s premier epidemiologists, John Ioannidis, has long been assuring us that the infection fatality rate of Covid-19 is comparable with that of a bad flu. His early estimate, in March, of a case fatality rate in the general population of between 0.05% and 1.0%, as indicated by the outbreak on the cruise ship Diamond Princess  –  a conclusion for which the eminent professor was, hilariously, censored by the non-scientists at YouTube.  

After all this, and after many thousands of deaths and hundreds of thousands of adverse reactions colosey following the vaccine, numbers that exceed by exponential factors the levels at which any other medication would have been withdrawn, we are being told that only mass vaccination against this fairly run-of-the-mill virus will allow us to return to any semblance of normal life.   By special dispensation, billions of doses and double - doses of insufficiently tested vaccine have already been administered worldwide, with a guarantee of no come-back for Big Pharma thanks to a United Nations WHO brokered deal giving vaccine manufacturers blanket immunity from legal action in cases of   or for doctors turning a blind eye to the precept “First to do no harm”, should those treated be hit with damaging repercussions on their health or, indeed, on life itself.  




US CDC Admits Vaccines are failing, the vaxxed can be super-spreaders, demands return to mask mandates for everyone, including the vaxxed
July 29: In a bombshell admission today the United States Center for Disease Ccontrol’s director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the official narrative on the effinciency of vaccines in preventingcovid-19 was destroyed. Back in March Walenksy put on record the promise that vaccinated people could not spread the virus and infect others,yet earlier this week she admitted that vaccines are failing, and vaccinated people may actually be carrying higher viral loads than unvaccinated people, thus contributing more to the spread of COVID-19 than those of us who wisely declined the killer vaccines.

Vaccine: More cases of rare blood clots, but regulator says benefits still outweigh risk
Reported cases of rare blood clots occuring in people soon after they received a shot of the AZ COVID-19 vaccine has risen to 168. The UK’s medicines regulator said the overall case fatality rate was 19%, with 32 deaths up to April 14. Note the dishonesty in the style of reporting again. Nowhere does the official press release make clear that the figures apply only to adverse reactions of blood clots, both non fatal and fatal. People are still suffering and dying from allergic reactions, heart attacks, organ failure and respiratory failure soon after being vaccinated.

The Yellow Vests, Deplorables and Gammons Are Here To Stay

The Gilets Jaunes (yellow vest)movement, which began as a Facebook group for dissatisfied French drivers almost a year ago and since the Macron government proposed a hike in fuel taxes for petrol and diesel cars spakred the first street protests, has mushroomed into a people's rebellion against globalism and corporatism. It has worried the French establishment and succeeded in forcing the usually arrogant and imperious President Macron into offering what globalist fellow travellers in mainstream media call major concessions from the government,
