Draconian Restrictions around Covid-19 condemned by HSE Doctor.

Saturday September 12, 2020 19:43 by 1 of indy
Dr Martin Feeley says restrictions were ‘draconian’ and unfair on younger people
For the second time in a week the Irish Times has reported on Covid-19 that did not slavishly follow the government / WHO / Big Pharma narrative and instead on something that makes common sense from a senior HSE doctor. If the Irish Times keep reporting on the actual truth like this, they are in real danger of being delisted from google searches. Nevertheless this little spark of light is to be applauded.
The piece concerns a statement made by Dr Martin Feeley, the clinical director of the Dublin Midlands Hospital Group, who said "Covid-19 is much less severe” than the average annual flu.
While this is obvious to anyone paying attention to the actual number of deaths it is an unheard of statement in the mainstream media. It is likely the government had an emergency cabinet meeting with the HSE on Zoom to discuss the threat of the actual truth getting out and the public discovering what liars they are and how they have been in the pocket of the corrupt part of the medical establishment, the corrupt WHO and the agenda of the big pharmaceutical companies that stand to make hundreds of billions of dollars/euro through mandatory vaccines for which they will be exempt from all liability
Dr Martin Feeley, clinical director of the Dublin Midlands Hospital Group. Covid-19 is “much less severe” than the average annual flu and current “draconian” restrictions are no longer justified
Here are some of the quotes from Dr Feeley
He suggested people at low risk from the virus should be exposed to it so they can develop herd immunity and reduce the risk to vulnerable groups.
“That is what is happening and yet the policy seems to be to prevent it,” he told The Irish Times.
“This should have been allowed to happen during the summer months before the annual flu season, to reduce the workload on the health service during winter months.”
He went on to state that any assessment of Ireland’s strategy to combat the virus should take into account the cost to people’s quality of life, according to the former vascular surgeon, who said that “you can’t postpone youth”.
“The financial cost can be seen in any walk or drive through cities, towns and villages. Mortgage repayments and other financial setbacks are virtually all suffered by the young worker or business person and not by the over-65, who are guaranteed their pension, as indeed are the salaries of the individuals who decide to inflict these draconian measures,” the 70-year-old told The Irish Times.
Dr Feeley is critical of the media and the public “obsession” with daily case numbers, when so few people are being admitted to hospital or intensive care units.
“The number of deaths among recent cases is less than one in a thousand. This data reflects a disease much less severe than the average annual flu.
“The media reaction to these cases, ie, with the gravity appropriate to reporting deaths from a major catastrophe, borders on hysteria. Opening a newscast with the number of people testing positive for a condition less dangerous than the flu, which many don’t even know they have, is scaremongering.
Then further down in the report it turns out he is not the only doctor to speak out for the report says:
Separately, another doctor, Alan Farrell, has written to the Taoiseach and the Minister for Health taking issue with the Government’s approach to Covid-19.
“From a medical perspective I am not seeing an impact from Covid on the ground. What I am seeing is delayed diagnoses for other conditions – breast cancer, skin cancer in young people, an onslaught of anxiety and depression, an increase in loneliness in the elderly, recently a fractured humerus in an elderly lady that has been like that for months as she was afraid to go outside.”
In a paper written with engineer Ivor Cummins, Dr Farrell argues that excess mortality from Covid-19 is “not very much greater” than the excess mortality observed during the 2018 flu season.
Most people are already immune to the virus, due to cross-immunity from prior coronaviruses, while the wearing of masks is an ineffective “politically driven endeavour”, they say.
Soon after the report appeared in the Irish Times, the HSE swung into action to begin the process of denigrating Dr Feeley in the press with support from RTE and across the government. It is interesting to note that their attempt at rebuttal the HSE used all the talking points that supported the narrative of the pharmaceutical companies who stand to make possibly hundreds of billions off vaccines because of the way that the population has been falsely fear-mongered into believing their lies.
Interestingly in a recent interview Dr Marcus De Brun revealed that the Luke O'Neill who now has his own NewsTalk show where he daily promotes the fear and vaccine narrative, has his own biopharmaceutical firm, Sitryx, and in earlier this year received $30m funding from a group of specialist healthcare investors including global healthcare company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). O'Neill was highly critical of the Swedish approach of going for herd immunity which it now has and Sweden's death rate per capita is no higher than Ireland. It had 3 times the number of deaths but also has 3 times the number of people over 60. In other words no higher. But they didn't destroy their economy, nor trigger a mental health crisis wave as has happened in Ireland.
