Common Colds ‘May Account for Some Reported COVID-19 Cases’

Combination of virus cult and common colds causing chaos in schools

Editor’s note: Children and staff display symptoms and are then distanced from school and forced into a long isolation but in reality, a chunk of them only has a common cold.

Rising cases of the common cold could be giving a false picture of the spread of coronavirus among children.

Public Health England’s weekly coronavirus report shows a rise of almost 23% in rhinovirus infections, which include the common cold, in the last week.

Among children aged five to 14, back at school since earlier this month, the rate of infection shot up by nearly 80%.

The survey acknowledges that it “may account for some of the acute respiratory incidents reported”.

Large increases in NHS 111 cold/flu calls and GP out-of-hours consultations for influenza-like illnesses were also recorded.

Acute respiratory infections (ARI) rose by 729 over the last seven days, including 193 cases in educational settings.

Of these, 110 had at least one linked case that tested positive for coronavirus, the report added.

On Friday, new confirmed daily cases of coronavirus hit 4,322 – the highest since 8 May.

And with COVID-19 cases now doubling every seven to eight days, the government is looking at introducing nationwide restrictions for a short period to try to “short-circuit” the virus and slow the spread of the disease.

Medical director at Public Health England Yvonne Doyle said: “We’re seeing clear signs this virus is now spreading widely across all age groups.”

And she added: “Out monitoring suggests we’re seeing a spike in other viruses that cause the common cold. These can cause a runny nose, sneezing and a sore throat.

“You should only request a COVID test if you have a continuous cough, fever, or loss of – or change in – sense of taste or smell.”

It comes as a teachers’ union survey found more than four in five schools report having children off because they cannot get a test or are waiting for test results.

The National Association of Head teachers (NAHT) said 82% of the 736 schools surveyed have children currently not attending because they cannot access a test to rule out the illness.

Even more, 87%, have children currently not attending because they are waiting for their test results.

Almost half (45%) have staff off work because they can’t get a test while 60% have teachers absent waiting to find out if they have the disease.

Nearly all of the schools (94%) have children who have had to stay at home due to suspected or confirmed cases of coronavirus this term.

More than three-quarters (78%) have staff who have had to self-isolate since term began earlier this month.

Paul Whiteman, NAHT general secretary, said: “Tests for COVID-19 need to be readily available for everyone so that pupils and staff who get negative results can get back into school quickly.

“But we are hearing the same thing repeatedly from our members across the country – chaos is being caused by the inability of staff and families to successfully get tested when they display symptoms.

“This means schools are struggling with staffing, have children missing school, and ultimately that children’s education is being needlessly disrupted.”

    Since the common cold and the COVID are both, supposedly, corona viruses, “science” has no way of telling them apart, so it doesn’t matter what the statisticians say.

    1. Steve Struthers says

      Well, one way to tell the two apart is this. If the bug you’ve got lasts three to seven days, you recover fully and don’t experience shortness of breath, a high fever or a loss of taste and smell, you probably have had the common cold. COVID-19 infections last longer and have symptoms that are severe. Some people find that recovery from a COVID-19 infection takes many weeks to months.

      1. disqus_3BrONUAJno says

        The difference is in the comorbidities, not the viruses that exacerbate them.
        Recovery from a medically-induced coma can take years or never happen.
        Lost of taste and/or smell is a symptom of zinc deficiency, which also produces a high vulnerability to viral infection.
        Sickness is largely unnecessary if one properly nourishes ones immune system so it can resist infections on its own.

    All part of the NWO plan to bag and tag, track, isolate, quarantine and vaccinate EVERYONE until the entire world is in complete shambles and a couple billion are killed off by iatrogenic medicine, suicides, homicides, drug over doses, spousal and child abuse these bastards have created as collateral damage to your basic cold/influenza illness……which has yet to be proven to have a viral origin. That plan is working to perfection so you can expect a doubling down of more of the same in the next couple of months,

    I drive a school bus in a rural school district. They want me to enforce medical tyranny on the kids over a nonexistent virus. I told my supervisor that I refuse to do this. He said, well you and me have a problem. I told him well I guess we do. He backed down immediately. These people know they’re lying, you just have to stand up to them, they’re bullies, they will back down.

    1. disqus_3BrONUAJno says

      He just knows that he can’t count on you doing what you’re told, which usually translates, eventually, into them not doing what they said they would.
      I see you as the guy that delivers innocent, ignorant children to their indoctrination sessions every day.

      1. Raptar Driver says

        You’re kind of an asshole aren’t you?
        Well I see it quite differently. I allow the children to have some freedom before they go into their indoctrination. Thus I am a buffer.
        Now my boss knows he can’t push me around.
        They can’t afford to fire me, drivers are very hard to get. And if he does so what, I’ll get another job with my class A license the next day.

        1. disqus_3BrONUAJno says

          I’m an asshole for pointing out the obvious?
          You should be a neo-con warmonger if you aren’t.
          You already have the mindset down pat.
          I’ve had a class A CDL since 1990, tankers and double/triple, not a single spot. Have you driven anything but a school bus? I’ve driven everything but buses, up to and including LCVs, which I’m very good at.
          Are you aware of the reluctance of trucking recruiters to hire bus drivers?
          Are you going to be happy as the ride along driver who is only there to get the truck on and off the highway so the robot can do the rest?

    Anyone that tests positive with that PRC trash test and dies will be a covid stat. Waste of time telling folks that,,, they just look at you with the lights on but nobody’s home look. Never seen such stupidity…

    1. disqus_3BrONUAJno says

      This is new to you?

      1. glimmer says

        i knew people were stupid but this situation brings it into shockingly horrific focus. not all of them are necessarily low IQ but instead their intelligence is cancelled out by their emotional problem & desire to be compliant. i never wanted to know that most people were as bad as i thought.

        1. disqus_3BrONUAJno says

          People are not as stupid as they are ignorant, and since ignorance can be cured with knowledge, we can hope they will make the effort, eventually, to cure their own cranial rectalitis. Stupidity is congenital. Those who are born stupid are destined, short of a miracle, to die stupid.

          1. Raptar Driver says

            And some people are smart, smart, stupid.

            1. disqus_3BrONUAJno says

              What is “smart, smart, stupid?”

  5. Aurum Cimex says

    My son is off college because a slight cold that lasted 36 hours sends administrators into blind panic and since tests are practically unavailable he is off for 2 weeks. This country has sunk into a kind of ludicrous cowardly farce that previous generations would refuse to have believed possible.

    1. Mary E says

      You can blame that scenario on the current US government administration-
      they are using this covid 19 virus as a cover for transferring $Billions
      to the corporations. as well as working hard at taking away Americans’
      social security and healthcare……all by design just like 2008, but using a different excuse now and having more of a negative impact on American citizens.

    2. disqus_3BrONUAJno says

      You should have given your son a bottle of vitamin D3 capsules before you sent him to college.

      1. Mary E says

        As well as lots of Vitamin C…make sure they are in gummy form so he’ll take lots of it to protect himself for the next go at school…

        1. disqus_3BrONUAJno says

          Gummy form is likely to be a deterrent to a college student, since that form is used to make small children think it is candy.
          I take the ideal combination of vitamins A, B complex, C, D3, E complex, and K2 (MK-7) twice a day to insure a therapeutic level of the water solubles.

      Is your ignorance part of the “mASSESHOLES” or just your own?
