UK Column debunks ‘hospitals overwhelmed by Covid’
- 8th January 2021

Short but eye-opening segment from UK Column exposing the disingenuous reporting about hospitals being “overwhelmed by Covid”.

The reality is UK hospitals are overwhelmed and face bed shortages every winter, the only difference is this year it's being used to justify a new wave of lockdown tyranny.

isa that why they are about to send covid patients the overspill emergency hospitals(aka Florence Nightingales, Luisa Jordan and others)?

Haven’t watched the video but the graphic shows overall bed occupancy.

Those are still low because they’ve put regular operations on hold.

ICU beds are through the roof apparently, I’m still looking into it.

well spotted.I speak with my friend about once a week. He's a theatre nurse who is mostly working in ICU. poor fucker is run off his feet, working 12-14 hour shifts at times. apparently the first covod patients in the Luisa Jordan in Glasgow will be going in today or tomorrow due to the stress on ICU space in particular.

I'm fully in support of the NHS, but they are overwhelmed every year.

When we blame that on covid, we're ignoring the fact that 30+ years of governments have been underfunding and cutting hospital beds.

That's the real problem.

Plus of course, the government have been saying since May that this will come up. If we're not prepared, that's on them.

@zoopenhoff :
Same problem in France. At each "epidemic season" the hospital staff and unions are crying out to the media: "we're full! we're lacking beds for the ICUs!".
The epidemic season kicks off in the autumn. Then another one in winter. So it's nothing new here.

( It seems there's a concerted plan to destroy the public hospital in France and the UK, that started about 30 years ago. )

'Overall bed occupancy' is the correct statistic for comparisons.
Ask yourself: why should hospitals "put regular operations on hold" in the first place?
This makes sense only if you can show it has a better Cost-Benefit balance.

But what is the cost of closing down hospitals for all but one category of patients?
In March-April 2020, countless people were denied treatment for cancer, or for other operations that were badly needed.
These people developed complications. Their cancers grew to incurable proportions.
This insane policy alone was the first factor in record deaths last Spring, and as you can see England takes #1 place in Europe for this madness:

The spike in overall deaths due to lock-downs and mandatory ward closures is many times larger than the deaths classified as "Covid". A category which itself is very oddly-defined.
I wonder how many months it will take to open your eyes.
