Every Virus Will Mutate… So Why Are They Trying to Terrify Us?

Usually to more adapted and ever less harmful variants

 As I watch Boris Johnson and Health Secretary Matt Hancock‘s hapless handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, and listen to their parroting of ‘the science’ as if it is some sort of religious text, I can’t help but think of the Spanish Inquisition.

Now, as then, public policy hangs on central dogmatic beliefs that are being used to control a population – all in the name of the ‘greater good’.

In our case, that means somehow snuffing out a respiratory virus using a combination of ill-judged military rhetoric and restrictions that massively infringe on our civil liberties.

All the evidence suggests that this approach is not working, and that implementing increasingly draconian tier systems and lockdowns will do little or nothing to hasten a return to normality, while causing massive collateral damage along the way.

Not that this has deterred the Prime Minister from vigorously trying these methods time and again.

Indeed, rather than question whether a respiratory virus, which spreads on the wind, can really be vanquished by shutting down the entire country, the Government insists on ratcheting up their hysterical mismanagement of this crisis.

To mount a successful Inquisition you need villains to be denounced. 

Our Health Secretary identified them yesterday in the form of people rushing out of London for a family Christmas that had been earnestly promised them by the Prime Minister – until he decided to cancel it just days later.

But you also need a higher authority.

Step forward the wise men of the Government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) and the New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group (NERVTAG), a narrow selection of ‘experts’ who are fully invested in the mistaken narrative of viral ‘control’.

They are the ones who provided the impetus to Mr Johnson’s justification for tearing up millions of people’s Christmas plans: Namely, that a new, supposedly more infectious strain of the virus has emerged.

How this is surprising when at least 20,000 variants of Covid have been identified, I cannot fathom.

After all, mutation of this (and every other) virus) s inevitable – and, in fact, it needn’t always be a bad thing.

As new strains of a virus emerge, they naturally evolve towards variants that may be more transmissible but which cause mild or no disease.

Why should this be so? Because it actually benefits the virus – it is more likely to survive, reproduce and spread to ever increasing numbers of individuals if it doesn’t kill its hosts.

Crucially for us, if the new strain isn’t as virulent, its spread among Britain’s healthy populace could even be advantageous. 

Exposure to it would stimulate the immune system to produce a response against it, so providing future protection as we move to a general level of immunity in the population.

So why don’t Johnson or Hancock publicly acknowledge this? Why do they persist instead with terrifying rhetoric of a ‘mutant’ virus spreading out of control.

It seems to me that from early on in this crisis, the Government developed a particular narrative of fear from which it cannot now deviate without admitting that its whole policy has been a disaster.

It doesn’t seem to matter that evidence from around the world shows that lockdowns do not work; that they destroy the economy, impoverish the public, drastically worsen public health outcomes and damage the mental health of the nation.

Nor does it matter that, despite the surge in reported cases yesterday, Britain’s weekly overall death rate is comfortably within the usual envelope for this time of year when compared with the past four decades.

That’s why it makes little sense to talk about ‘defeating’ a respiratory virus that is with us for ever, and that kills very few of those it infects.

That’s not to say that we shouldn’t look after everyone. Of course we should do everything possible to help vulnerable groups shield themselves and vaccinate at the earliest opportunity.

But coercion in the face of this virus is wrong. Why should the Government be telling us who we can hug at Christmas?

If nothing else, it is that uniquely inhumane edict that confirms just how misguided their approach is.

If they have not isolated, identified or laid eyes on the original covid virus how can they possibly know it mutated!! This entire brown stuff show goes from stupid to idiotic. 20,000 variants and not one identified by isolate? What do they do? Stare into a soup with a microscope and declare some squiggly things new viruses? Smile at each other and say “This ought to scare the bejesus out of them, haha”. It’s a good thing their target marks aren’t the sharpest knives in the drawer or they would have been tarred and feathered and routed out of town long ago.

As for a higher authority,,, my higher authority is The Higher Authority and trust me,,, they will be dealt with.

Absolutely, ke4ram. If they haven’t isolated, identified or laid eyes on the original covid virus, how can they possibly know it mutated? This entire brown stuff show goes from stupid to idiotic. 20,000 variants and not one identified by isolate? What on earth do they do, eh? Stare into a soup with a microscope and declare some squiggly things new viruses? Really? Smile at each other and say “This ought to scare the bejesus out of them, haha”. It’s good their target marks aren’t the sharpest knives in the drawer or they would’ve been tarred and feathered and routed out of town long ago.
As for a higher authority, my higher authority’s The Higher Authority ,, and trust me, they’ll be dealt with.

By sheer numbers alone viruses will mutate. That’s called “survival of the fittest.” Due to the fact that viruses enter with such huge numbers there are going to be some who are not exactly the same as others. These ones will survive, thrive and reproduce while others die off. This happens all the times. This is one of the reasons that a vaccine for a specific set of viruses won’t always work.

The problem is that the virus can’t be controlled. No virus can be controlled. Could we control the virus that caused the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic? No. Despite mask-wearing, lockdowns and quarantines in that time, 50 million people still died from it. Were we able to control the 1968-69 Hong Kong Flu pandemic? No, because 1 million died in that pandemic. What about the 1957 flu pandemic? Nope. We couldn’t control that one either.

An associated problem is that the first impulse any politician has is to be seen to be doing, something, anything in any given crisis or in respect of any major issue, especially anything that’s likely to be controversial.

There are two reasons why politicians have this basic impulse. First, it’s used to reassure the largely ignorant populace that something is indeed being done about the crisis or problem at hand. This preserves votes for the politician and the political party he or she belongs to.

Second, the politician can avoid criticism for opting not to do anything. Again, this preserves votes and preserves the reputation of the government.

The other thing to keep in mind is that most Western countries have not adequately invested in health care. In some countries, cuts to public health care and rationing of care have been the norm, along with gross mismanagement. Lockdowns are therefore used as a tool to preserve what little capacity exists in such systems in the face of a pandemic.

They knew a pandemic was coming, but failed to prepare.

And, given that infectious agents like COVID-19 are pretty much impossible to control, governments have no cards to play beyond the lockdown card, regardless of how ineffective they are, or the harm that they cause.

It’s also very likely that the lockdowns have been instituted not only to give the appearance of controlling the uncontrollable, but also in service of a greater agenda, one that has been promulgated by entities that exist at a level well above local, regional and national governments.
