UK reports record 1,564 daily Covid deaths, as pressure rises on NHS

The chief executive of NHS Wales spoke of “enormous” pressure on its services. Northern Ireland’s health minister said the situation in hospitals was “unsustainable”. While Boris Johnson admitted ICU capacity could be exceeded. Across the UK, health service staff are under severe strain and the number of victims continues to rise. (Subscribe:

The latest 24-hourly figures show tragically 1,564 deaths with Covid – the highest yet announced. That brings the official total of UK deaths to 84,767. The latest figures show 47,525 have also tested positive for the virus.

But more than 2.6 million people in the UK have now received their first dose of a vaccine, with over 200,000 people given a vaccine for the first time yesterday.

There are indications the latest lockdown is starting to pay dividends. The infection rate remains very high, but it is beginning to decline again after spiking dramatically following the end of the last English lockdown at the start of December.

    THERE IS NO VALID TEST TO DETECT SARS-COV-2, neither antibody or antigen tests nor RT-PCR. And we included those based on the supposed gene that codes for the S1 or spike protein. And that means that ALL THE NUMBERS OF "CASES", "INFECTED", “SICK", "Asymptomatic" OR "DEAD DUE TO COVID-19" LACK A SCIENTIFIC BASE AND ALL “POSITIVES” ARE FALSE POSITIVES.

    As you can see, that's why there'd be more irreligious people, as long as there's internet, and obviously because of John Lennon that had been murdered by a Christian guy who claimed that God had ordered him to kill John Lennon for publicly saying that The Beatles is more popular than Jesus and also for the irreligious song titled Imagine which was popularized by John Lennon.


    Master's Surya Kumar Sen (born March 22, 1894 – died January 12, 1934) nicknamed Kalu. One of the leaders of the anti-British independence movement in the subcontinent. Born in East Bengal, this Bengali revolutionary took part in the then anti-British armed movement and sacrificed his life. He plundered the arsenal of Chittagong in Bangladesh of the Indian subcontinent with only 5 comrades. Today, 111 years later, the name of this hero for the liberation of India is still in gold.

    Coronavirus and the decisive explanatory-statement, and it is not a joke

    Translation source

    Imam Nasser Mohammad Al-Yemeni

    26 – Ramadan – 1441 AH
    19 – 05 – 2020 AD
    06:37 pm
    (According to the official time of [Mecca] mother of towns)

    ..Coronavirus and the decisive explanatory-statement, and it is not a joke

    In the name of Allah the One, the Forgiver, the All Mighty, the Subduer, prayer of forgiveness and peace be upon Mohammad messenger of Allah the chosen prophet with the (Quran) reminder to the people entirely..
    O decision makers, leaders of the humans and their people altogether in various regions, I exhort you only to one thing that you rise-up for Allah’s sake by twos and singly, then ponder who is the one that Allah fulfilled to him the challenge with Truth upon the actual reality in regard to what they call it coronavirus? Is it the challenge of the human physicians or the challenge of the Awaited Mahdi servant of Allah and His khalifa the Imam Mahdi Nasser Mohammad Al-Yemeni?

    That’s in order for you to know the sure knowledge that by no means and they can never encompass knowledge from Allah except by what He pleases; glory be to Him above what you associate (with Him) and apostate because of what you have from modern science have deceived and (Allah) encompassed you with what the ancient ones did not have, then what you have from science of the technical data and the knowledge in various fields have deceived you, for that (Allah) challenged you by what you do not encompass knowledge and from the tiniest soldiers of Allah until He made your data zero on the left (has no value) O community of whom they rejoiced with what they have of knowledge and they thought that they indeed have power over everything then Allah insulted your ability and humiliated your arrogance and removed your conceitedness by the smallest soldier from His creation; not seen by the naked eye for its small size and that’s in order for you to know the worth of yourselves, as well in order for you to know the sure knowledge that Allah’s chastisement; the strangling disease of what you call it coronavirus that could never remove it from you other than Allah, Him Alone. Verily, they must repent from the major sins, indecencies, oppressing people and the wrongfulness of association, and to say: “Our Lord, we have wronged ourselves, if You do not forgive us and (not) have mercy on us we certainly would be of the losers”. And after repenting they should say: “Oh Allah, I am Your servant, I ask you by the fact there is no God except You, and by the fact of Your mercy that You ordained upon YourSelf, and by the fact of greatness of the Bliss of YourSelf’s good-pleasure that is greater than the bliss of Your heavenly-garden that you heal me from the chastisement of corona or remove it away from me surely I believe in the true caller from You. Oh Allah, remove Your chastisement away from us and from every entrance so we would follow the path of Truth from You, and to make us steadfast on fulfilling what we promised You — O Who comes between man and his heart, surely we do not have except Your mercy that You ordained upon YourSelf. Indeed, if You do not forgive us and (not) have mercy on us we would surely be of the losers. Oh our Allah, You have said in Your decisive Book: {And your Lord says: Pray to Me, I will answer you.}Truthful Allah the Great [Ghãfer] 40:60. Supplication-prayer and turning (close to Allah) is from me while responding is from You. Indeed, You never violate Your promise. Our Lord, glory be to You, surely Your promise is ever True and You are the Most Merciful than all who have mercy. O our Allah, make us steadfast upon fulfilling what we promised You to follow Allah’s global caller khalifa of Allah in the land; the Imam Mahdi Nasser Mohammad Al-Yemeni. O our Allah, make sending him as favor upon us and not affliction against us because of our turn away from the true call of the Imam Mahdi Nasser Mohammad Al-Yemeni”.
    { وَقَالَ رَبُّكُمُ ادْعُونِي أَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ } [غافر: من الآية ٦٠]

    Whoever rejected this supplication then definitely will befall them chastisement of what they call it coronavirus. Has Allah made sign of coronavirus except as a ratification sign of the explanatory-statement of the challenge of Imam Mahdi Nasser Mohammad Al-Yemeni in his explanatory-statement dated on tenth of Rajab by the title: “Corona-virus is from the minor chastisement before the major chastisement so they may turn (to Allah)”? And we made the medicine and the solution in the title of the explanatory-statement yet it is the wisdom of the minor chastisement of coronavirus, also the wisdom for healing from its chastisement is — for they may return to Allah, then repent to Allah an utmost repentance, so they would follow the caller to Allah’s Book, His servant and khalifa of His; the Imam Mahdi Nasser Mohammad Al-Yemeni. If the arrogant ones turned away from this supplication-prayer, it is then — Oh community of supporters, know that Allah by no means and He would never answer your supplication-prayer by lifting the suffocating chastisement of Allah away from the criminals among the worlds, that’s according to my knowledge in the Book that if Allah lifts it away from the world by His mercy without them know that it is a ratification sign to who Allah selected him for the people as an Imam (leader), khalifa of Allah and His servant the Imam Mahdi Nasser Mohammad, and I repeat and I mention that if He removes it without them know that it is from signs of ratification for His khalifa Al- Mahdi Nasser Mohammad Al-Yemeni verily they will persist in their inordinacy, blindly wandering on, so they would continue turning away from following Allah’s caller and khalifa of His Nasser Mohammad. Confirming with the word of Allah the Most High: {And if We show mercy to them and remove the distress they have, they would persist in their inordinacy, blindly wandering on.}Truthful Allah the Great [Al-Mu´minoon] 23:75
    { ۞ وَلَوۡ رَحِمۡنَـٰهُمۡ وَكَشَفۡنَا مَا بِهِم مِّن ضُرٍّ لَّلَجُّوا۟ فِی طُغۡیَـٰنِهِمۡ یَعۡمَهُونَ }[سورة المؤمنون 75].

    You NEED to read this if you have elderly family ..
    Let us suppose that I wanted to CULL a large proportion of the population over the age of 65 to save on Pensions, Health Care and other future Benefits.
    Then what better than to implement 3/ avenues of State Deception, albeit known to bring about the early death of such elderly subjects.
    1/ ISOLATE by LOCKDOWN, MASKS and no social contact and thus to accelerate the onset of Dementia/ Alzheimers and early death.
    2/ Encourage by Government press briefings and Media the daily constant drip-feed of ANXIETY and FEAR both known to weaken the immune system and more so in the elderly and even again, to the point of death.
    3/ Implement an immediate programme of Vaccination, prioritising the elderly in full knowledge that the Vaccines have NO SAFETY RECORD, little  credibility, and that any resulting death will be dismissed as simply the age of person and no reflection on the Vaccine or Government.
