Government warned over 'reckless' plan to set up COVID-19 units in care homes

Plans are being made to set up coronavirus units within existing care homes – something multiple providers have described as “reckless” and an attempt to keep the elderly out of hospitals.

Sky News has obtained a copy of a leaked email sent to providers in County Durham, asking if they are prepared to set up the designated units.

It says: “We are inviting expressions of interest from care homes who are able to offer block-booked beds for service users who test positive for COVID-19 over the winter period.”

    I swear the governments of the world are using the virus to kill those who need the most help…….

    Notice that don’t say separate filtration systems. What about aerosol viral particles? If anyone can, take your elderly home although I know that is not possible for all but I think this idea has already proven to be deadly to the most compromised.

    TO SURVIVE COVID19:
    1. Don't got to the hospital if tested positive
    2. Keep your loved ones away from care homes
    3. Refuse the so called vaccination

    1. Take a flu like illness with very common symptoms, that can be dangerous to people with weak immune systems and/or serious underlying health issues. Call it COVID-19
    2. Provoke a Terrified Reaction in the public through media partners
    3. Impose Lockdowns
    4. Exaggerate 'cases' with sketchy tests
    5. Mandate Face Masks <—- You are here as of October 2020
    6. Impose Contact Tracing
    7. Impose Health Passport ID Systems (for local and international use)
    8. Mandatory Vaccinations
    9. Cashless society (with account at Government central bank via phone)
    10. Compel RFID Microchip implants (linked to your money & social credit accounts, health passport details etc.)

    At this point anyone challenging the Government will have their cash/social credits removed, access to health care stopped, access to travel stopped etc.).
    LIKE CHINA

    COVID-19 INFECTION SURVIVAL RATES (per CDC)
    Ages 0-19: 99.997%
    Ages 20-49: 99.98%
    Ages 50-69: 99.5%
    Ages 70+: 94.6%
    Seasonal Flu Infection Survival Rate (for population as a whole): 99.90%

    Useless tests (even the inventor says they're not fit for Covid diagnosis).
    No sign of a vaccine. No guarantee of a vaccine (common cold, HIV, ineffective flu vax etc.).
    No end in sight unless we choose the Swedish approach.
