Is The Pandemic Madness Over?

Pandemic

WASHINGTON, DC, Jan 19 – Is the madness over? So says England and the World Health Organization [WHO]. 

The maskless UK prime minister, Boris Johnson, received a standing ovation in Parliament Wednesday when he announced that virtually all COVID restrictions will be lifted within the coming months. “As COVID becomes endemic, we will need to replace legal requirements with advice and guidance, urging people with the virus to be careful and considerate of others. “Our scientists believe it is likely that the Omicron wave has now peaked nationally,” says Johnson.

Johnson says masks will no longer be required, and Britain’s workforce can begin to return to their offices and places of work, effective immediately. And, he said that beginning almost immediately, the English population will no longer be required to wear masks.

It should be noted that the Prime Minister has been under siege lately, and the opposition has been urging that he resign. The New York Times believes his announcement is an effort to win back the support he has been losing in recent months. According to the Times, a “stream of disclosures about illicit social gatherings have engulfed Mr. Johnson’s government and emboldened mutinous lawmakers to push for a no-confidence vote that could topple him.” The Times article notes that he recently has made several positive announcements – what the newspaper calls “gambits” – in an effort to win back support and fend off his critics.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization says the worst is coming to an end as death rates and hospitalizations are reduced. However, WHO says, COVID may never go away.

According to the Epoch Times, Dr. Michael Ryan, Executive Director of WHO’s Health Emergencies Program is saying that “we may never end the virus [because such pandemic viruses] end up becoming part of the ecosystem … we have a chance to end the public health emergency this year if we do the things that we’ve been talking about. What we need to do is get to low levels of disease incidence with maximum vaccination of our populations, so nobody has to die. The issue is: it’s the death. It’s the hospitalizations. It’s the disruption of our social, economic, political systems that’s caused the tragedy—not the virus.”

Ryan went on to say that if we can shrink the numbers of new COVID cases and get more people vaccinated, “nobody has to die. The issue is: it’s the death. It’s the hospitalizations. It’s the disruption of our social, economic, political systems that’s caused the tragedy—not the virus.”

But WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus may not be as cautiously optimistic as Ryan. Ghebreyesus appears to disagree with Ryan’s positivity and says, “Make no mistake, Omicron is causing hospitalizations and deaths, and even the less severe cases are inundating health facilities. The virus is circulating far too intensely with many still vulnerable. For many countries, the next few weeks remain really critical for health workers and health systems.”

It should be noted that the British take on the status of COVID recognizes that individuals who test positive for the disease and their contacts who have not been vaccinated will still need to isolate themselves. But Prime Minister Johnson also indicated that the protocol may come to an end soon. It’s due to expire at the end of March, and he says he doesn’t expect to renew it.

Johnson said that “As COVID becomes endemic, we will need to replace legal requirements with advice and guidance, urging people with the virus to be careful and considerate of others.”

If we had Hydroxychloraquine and Ivermectin no one would have to die either. But both have been effectively removed from our pharmacies to support the vaccine train. This is a world wide travesty. Profit over people. Disgraceful.

It’s good to see England is promoting the return to sanity over a virus. As for the WHO, they are so wishy-washy and politically driven, they simply cannot ever be trusted again. Unless Australia lifts all sanctions pertaining to the Wuhan virus as well, I doubt the Socialist/Communist run Biden administration will ease up either. More likely than not, the insanity will stop when enough of the elitists making a whole lot of money from vaccines and face masks stop benefitting more than it’s worth to politicians to keep the scam going.

Is The Pandemic Madness Over? It is if we choose it to be over…Currently we have ( 2 ) high up politicians that will milk this for all it’s worth, I present to you JRB & Justin Trudeau of Canada…Effective today, 38,000 truckers in Canada have turned in their keys over the vaccine mandates not allowing them to cross into the states to deliver their loads unless they are vaccinated…
Effective tomorrow, 1-22-22, allegedly 100,000 truckers in America will no longer be driving their big rigs for those very same reasons, they can’t enter Canada without proof of vaccinations…
What does this mean? It means a whole lot more empty shelves in the super markets, people go hungry, empty shelves at the hardware stores, lumber stores & on & on it goes… This is what Biden has in store for all of us going into 2022…
Think JRB has nothing to do with the supply chain issues across this nation? You better think again & never forget, China is fully involved with this as it is by design…
Bill… :~)

“As COVID becomes endemic, we will need to replace legal requirements with advice and guidance…”

Advice and guidance was all that was ever needed.

If this cold/flu did not have a name, was not political and was prior to 2019 it would be categorized as a nasty flu season, nothing more, nothing less.

Then when the next variant of the Covid-19 virus pops up, Boris Johnson will be racing to the podium to announce new Covid mandates once again. If you read the article carefully, he states “Our scientists believe it is likely that the Omicron wave has now peaked nationally”.  So he is only talking about the Omicron variant and the assumption he is relying on is that there won’t be yet another Covid variant that the politicians will, once again, leverage to damage their countries. Time will tell of course, but my money is on yet another variant popping up that will send most of the politicians around the world into what has become Pavlovian response of unnecessary mandates and lockdowns.

Yes, I read about that one too. So I suspect any relief the people of the U.K. get from these mandates will be short lived. The reality is Covid-19 is endemic and we will be seeing ever milder and less dangerous variants as time goes on. The trick will be whether we react to it sensibly, like the new strain of flu virus we live through each and every year or do we allow certain politicians and the msm continue a perpetual fear mongering campaign accompanied by rolling waves of mandates and restrictions.

Yes Paul, all of us have been through this before with all the other seasonal viruses that come & go.
The CCP’s Tedro of the WHO will milk this for all it’s worth moving forward & how he reacts to the next variant that comes along from Covid will prove out what you have highlighted here, ” never let a crisis go to waste. ”
President Trump warned all of us early on about NOT allowing the cure to be worse than the virus itself, in fact I would now call that a prophetic statement made by the 45th POTUS…
In closing I just want to remind everyone on the HONEST statement put out by Joe Biden just over a year ago that brings us to this present moment in time…
Joe Biden: ” We have put together I think the most extensive & inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics. ”
Bill… :~)

This COVID is a bio-engineered weapon that will continue produce different strains for a very long time. Sometimes the strains will be weak and other times it will reap vengeance.

Unless the Chinese scientists are so much better than every other virologist on the planet, which I highly doubt, the natural evolutionary progression of viruses is to become less and virulent with each succeeding mutation of the virus.

Exactly. The “election fraud” virus is currently our greatest threat to our health.
