“Arguably, the Covid crisis is being presented in such a one-sided, misleading and alarmist manner that the public is effectively being lied to,” writes Sherelle Jacobs in an article published in The Telegraph on May 14, 2020.
She continues by saying, “But the lie is now so dramatically compelling, so morally powerful, that, like the virus itself, it may be impossible to defeat and prove endemic.”
She also says, “Every day we are subjected to yet more bitesized epidemiology that gives an utterly false impression of risk. And every day we are bombarded with terrifying death figures so out of context that they are effectively meaningless.”
Later she writes, “We are being brainwashed into a view of the risks around lifting lockdown that is not only one-dimensional, but also downright wrong.
“The tragedy is we have blown coronavirus out of proportion to such a degree that it is obscuring our view of another epidemic – surging non-Covid excess deaths.
“Warnings from cardiology experts that soon the daily excess deaths related to illnesses untreated during lockdown – from heart disease to cancer – could soon be greater than the daily Covid death rate remain dangerously unheeded.
“He [Prof Philip Thomas at the University of Bristol] suggests that hundreds of thousands could die if lockdown is ended too slowly – and yet his findings have not enjoyed nearly as much publicity.”

The ‘official Covid story’ is one-sided to the point of deceit: The public is being so heavily bombarded with biased, selective information that it is almost impossible to make out the truth.
