Coronavirus ‘emergency’ turns medicine into witchcraft

Why not just hang skulls and other voodoo warnings on the front fences of Queensland schools?

 
As for the “gravity of the situation,” nobody but the clinically vulnerable has even been endangered by this flu.

    Does this woman have any idea how stupid she is?

    As for her contempt for non doctors.

    No surprises there.

    No credibility.

    None.

    These people live in their own bubble.
    This daggy Qld Chief Health Officer has had this title since 2005. Time to go Jeanette, you don’t live in the real world.
    Pubs and restaurants open in Qld from this weekend. MAX 10 people at a time!. I venture that Jeanette Young and Brendan Murphy have never been in a pub in their lives. Nor has their livelihoods been interrupted.
    Fuck off you cretins. Hope the bug bites you on the arse.

    Over the last decade I have really grown to like and admire Warren Mundine. His comment sums the situation up nicely.

    The war between the guaranteed pay cheque and the normal folk continues unabated.

  5. Herodotus says:

    Could someone “message” the voters to let them know that electing left wing governments is not so much about “fairness” or “equality” or “da worker” as it is about chosen elites, funding of mates and useful idiots, and (most importantly) stacking the judicial system.

  6. Professor Fred Lemin says:

    Everything will be all right when the Qld socialist government buys the now defunct airline , great idea when the socialist distancing laws will cut the number of passengers by 400 per cent ! Im sure the government ecommunists will find another money tree to pillage.

  7. Beachcomber says:

    There was never a new, deadly virus that would cause an epidemic. It has always been about creating a climate of fear. The leftist establishment and the media must be delighted at how easy it was, how effective it has been, and how it can be maintained possibly forever with new threats of danger.

    Preach it, brother!

    The credentialed class, as someone called them. They’re appalling.

  10. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    The current number of Australian school children who have horribly expired because of the Communist China Bat Bug is zero. We must scare their parents pants off to reduce the figure to below zero. Only then will the kiddies be safe. #zeroisnotenough

    Talk about life imitating art!
    Two floors of a Geelong hospital reopened to treat Coronavirus cases
    At a cost of $8 million
    No patients
    No one
    Hailed by the manager as a tremendous success
    Straight out of Yes Minister

  12. Shy Ted says:

    Ditch the witchcraft.

  13. Lee says:

    And what’s the “message,” idiot?
    This is like alarmist scaremongering to schoolchildren, that we’re all going to be horribly fried “if we don’t do something about climate change.”

    “It’s about the messaging.”

    Someone chuck another virgin in the Volcano please!

  15. H B Bear says:

    Meanwhile school is compulsory in WA on Monday.

    They are making it all up at this stage.

  16. James of Tas says:

    Why am I not surprised.

    Crippled from an injury over three years trying to get someone to look at it seriously.
    All they do is dismiss dismiss dismiss and fiddle around everywhere but what and where I tell them I’m having problems.
    GP ended up saying “Trouble is the injury you’ve got is difficult to deal with so they’re running away from it”.
    Lying so called specialist admits to me verbally the problem is real but won’t write it down so I’m stuffed.

    I suspect the public health systems are just as broken across the country.

  17. Robber Baron says:

    The more they talk the more the serfs realize that their government loathes them.

    Keep talking bitch.

  18. Tim Neilson says:

    At least the Hunchback of Spring Street has maintained rationality in a crisis.

    He was told that some cafes bars and restaurants wouldn’t find it worthwhile to open for only 10 patrons at a time.

    So he’s continuing an indefinite prohibition on ANY cafe bar or restaurant in the whole of CFMEUistan being open.

    You KNOW it makes sense!

  19. Tim Neilson says:

    Sorry guys but no matter how hard your Premiers or Chief Ministers try (and they’re doing a damned good job) we still win the “most drooling braying barking mad imbecile as head of government” trophy.

    “It’s about the messaging.”

    Queensland wants to buy up the virgins to do just that.

  21. Colonel Bunty Golightly says:

    I’m sick of this crap and these lying government officials. For me the lockdown is over!

  22. H B Bear says:

    I think the Administrator might have something to say about this.

  23. Tel says:

    As for the “gravity of the situation,” nobody but the clinically vulnerable has even been endangered by this flu.

    Some medical workers were endangered … those who did not get masks and other protective equipment, and who were subject to ongoing dosage every day.

    Not in Australia though, we never had enough sick people to be an issue for the hospitals.

  24. Megan says:

    Havent we been saying exactly what Warren said, since the whole sorry debacle began/

    Doesn’t look the full quid. Anyone with a phrenological eye would attest.

    But hey, you can’t create dystopia without these type of people occupying these type of positions.

  27. egg_ says:

    “It’s about the messaging

    Just like the CAGW “price signal” on Electricity by the Grunenfuhrers, Fascists one and all.

  28. Matt says:

    ‘nobody but the clinically vulnerable’ – what does that even mean?
    You’ve obviously reviewed the medical records of all of the fatalities to make that assessment.

  29. Leo G says:

    The “message” appears to be that the good the sacrifice brings the community as a whole, by signaling to the god of political ineptitude, outweighs the future wellbeing of the children.
    The basis of an implied right to education abortion.
    Why do I feel that sense of déjà vu?

    The irony of the latte Left putting cafes out of business.

    “Flattening the curve” reeks of Voodoo.
    Joe Public is paying dearly for the Voodoo lockdown.

  32. Delta says:

    The latest post from WUWT says it all: Attention, Citizens! The #COVID19 Emergency Is Over! Just look at the shape of the normal distribution curves – not exponential curves! The health bureaucrats who have been sounding an alarm don’t have a clue and all the models are wrong. Politicians blithely accepting the advice are no better.

    And here’s another telling piece from a UK mathematician who convincingly ridicules the way data was (mis)used to claim exponential growth and justify lock-down. (I recommend listening to to it all if you can)

    And if you want more sensible information about this scare/madness, take a look atWMBriggs’ site, scroll down, start reading. Take your pick – they’re all excellent articles.

    To summarise: the whole pandemic alarmism is bullshit. I accept it may be dangerous for older people with a pre-existing medical condition but the answer is to isolate the infected, not the whole population and definitely not inter older people with infected people. The politicians have this completely wrong and the drama should be stopped immediately by a strong politician before too much damage is inflicted on the economy.

    However, the damage continues apace. How about this one! New Zealand’s Government is defending a new bill giving sweeping powers to police. The rushed Covid-19 Public Health Response Bill passed within 48 hours and will potentially allow police to enter homes without a warrant. With 63 votes in favour and 57 against, the bill passed on Wednesday. God help NZ! How disgraceful!

    Also I watched SkyNews UK this morning for a couple of minutes to hear some morbid soul intoning about the likelihood of 200,000 deaths if… bla bla bla. WTF, this is a world gone mad.

  33. egg_ says:

    Attention, Citizens! The #COVID19 Emergency Is Over!

    When was it over?

    When was it ever an “emergency”?

  34. C.L. says:

    Thanks for all that, Delta.
    Will read those links tomorrow.
    Much appreciated.

  35. David Brewer says:

    The full quote from the article is this:

    Dr Young told Ms Palaszczuk to shut down schools on March 26.

    She says while evidence showed schools were not a high-risk environment for the spread of the virus, closing them down would help people understand the gravity of the situation.

    “If you go out to the community and say, ‘this is so bad, we can’t even have schools, all schools have got to be closed’, you are really getting to people,” Dr Young says.

    “So sometimes it’s more than just the science and the health, it’s about the messaging.

    “So my advice to the Premier was, ‘we’ve got to do it. It’ll be awful, but we’ve got to do it’.

    “But that was critical, decreasing the number of kids who go to school.”

    The Premier should have seen through this nonsense immediately, and she should pay the penalty at the ballot box for such gross incompetence.

    But Young’s error is worse. To recommend, as a senior health official, something that you know will be “awful”, and that is not justified on health grounds, merely so that you are “really getting to people” because “it’s about the messaging”… is just insane. This woman should be dismissed, she should never be employed on the public purse again, and she should count herself lucky not to be sued by every family in Queensland that has suffered hardship as a result of her demented advice.

  36. Don says:

    Young’s mindset pervades public policy today. It’s the bastard child of post modernism.

    Does this woman have any idea how stupid she is?

    The one in NSW that Gladys hides behind is just as bad, or even worse.

    I’m a chick but I think most of these women have been promoted beyond their competence simply for being women, and this goes for private enterprise as well. The only different ones are those who run their own companies.

    Spot on! The Victoriastani medical officer has previously tweeted that climate change was the biggest threat to Australians. The alarmists are known for exaggerating to get attention. He is applying the same attitude to the bat flu.

    On a side note, I have met rational and logical people who believe incredible things, eg, a skilled software creator who believed the Earth is 10,000 years old. He just didn’t believe the scientific evidence to the contrary.

  39. Mother Lode says:

    The leftie love of symbolism over substance.

    Turning off the lights for an hour, wearing looped-ribbon badges of solidarity for various classes of unfortunate people they will not meet, hashtags, pussy-hats…anything other than presenting a cogent argument.

    And there is a reason for that. Argument ties you to logic, words crystallise concepts illuminating their contents and their edges. It tears these conceits from the internal where they provide a soft warm inner glow and place them instead out in the cold hard public realm between people where others can touch, pick at, or crush them.

    Lefties hate that.

    I used to know a technically adept computer graphics designer who actually believed that Uri Geller could bend spoons with his mind.

    It’s beyond doubt now , we have more than enough evidence.
    When push comes to shove, they always revert to their motherly instincts……always.

  44. Diogenes says:

    “So my advice to the Premier was, ‘we’ve got to do it. It’ll be awful, but we’ve got to do it’.

    In 20 or so years time she will realise exactly how awful… wehn she is lying in a hospital bed somewhere desperately clinging to life and her doctor is one of the ones for whom 2020 was a ‘lost year’ education-wise

  45. Tiny Dancer says:

    Not long ago she declared that it was unsafe to go outside your home: except to vote, at a voting station, with large groups of people around. She and Anastasia are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to slapdash incompetence with a touch of dishonesty.

  46. Leo G says:

    I’m a chick but I think most of these women have been promoted beyond their competence simply for being women …

    Men are rarely promoted beyond their competence simply for being women. They have created entire level-of-incompetence hierarchies without resort to gender identity.
    Women are the “Johnny-come-lately”s of the Peter Principle.

  47. Tim Neilson says:

    With a side serving of primary school blackboard monitor junior H!tler love of showing everyone how important they are.

  48. Speedbox says:

    On a side note, I have met rational and logical people who believe incredible things, eg, a skilled software creator who believed the Earth is 10,000 years old.

    I knew a fellow many years ago who believed, really believed, that the Earth was no more than about 6,000 years old. Rather than being just plain wacko, he was the CEO for a growing medium sized company and had an exemplary education at some of the best private schools. Even attended a prestigious University in the USA for his MBA.

    Very bright in business but an utter fruit loop in his privately held beliefs.

    C’est la vie.
