“There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians, it’s outrageous, this is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public”

This expert (speaking at a public meeting), and it is worth the listen, says that masks are only good for virtue signalling, that the lock-downs are counter-productive madness, covid amounts to nothing more than a bad flu and that’s exactly how it should be treated (stay home from work, take warm soup & don’t visit the elderly), politics playing medicine is driving panic, only the vulnerable (e.g. care home residents) should be protected & 3 to 5 thousand IU of vitamin D daily reduces their chances of clinical covid dramatically, people under the age of 65 have a one in three hundred thousand chance of dying from the disease, and that testing is worthless because positives DO NOT indicate there will be a clinical case and in precise quotation the testing is “driving public hysteria.”

At just over five minutes, it is really worth a listen:


“This is Dr. Hodkinson, I just wanted to let you know I’m standing by.

“OK, well we would love to hear from you, the floor is yours.

“Thank you very much. I do appreciate the opportunity to address you on this very important matter. What I’m going to say is lay language, and blunt. It is counter-narrative, and so you don’t immediately think I’m a quack, I’m going to briefly outline my credentials so that you can understand where I’m coming from in terms of knowledge base in all of this.

“I’m a medical specialist in pathology which includes virology. I trained at Cambridge University in the UK. I’m the ex-president of the pathology section of the Medical Association. I was previously an assistant professor in the Faculty of Medicine doing a lot of teaching. I was the chairman of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada Examination Committee and Pathology in Ottawa, but more to the point I’m currently the chairman of a biotechnology company in North Carolina selling the COVID-19 test.

“And I might, you might say, I know a little bit about all of this. The bottom line is simply this: There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians. It’s outrageous. This is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public. There is absolutely nothing that can be done to contain this virus. Other than protecting older, more vulnerable people. It should be thought of as nothing more than a bad flu season. This is not Ebola. It’s not SARS. It’s politics playing medicine and that’s a very dangerous game.

“There is no action of any kind needed other than what happened last year when we felt unwell. We stayed home, we took chicken noodle soup, we didn’t visit granny and we decided when we would return to work. We didn’t need anyone to tell us.

“Masks are utterly useless. There is no evidence base for their effectiveness whatsoever. Paper masks and fabric masks are simply virtue-signaling. They’re not even worn effectively most of the time. It’s utterly ridiculous. Seeing these unfortunate, uneducated people — I’m not saying that in a pejorative sense — seeing these people walking around like lemmings, obeying without any knowledge base, to put the mask on their face.

“Social distancing is also useless because COVID is spread by aerosols which travel 30 meters or so before landing. Enclosures have had such terrible unintended consequences. Everywhere should be opened tomorrow as well as was stated in the Great Barrington Declaration that I circulated prior to this meeting.

“And a word on testing: I do want to emphasize that I’m in the business of testing for COVID. I do want to emphasize that positive test results do not, underlined in neon, mean a clinical infection. It’s simply driving public hysteria and all testing should stop. Unless you’re presenting to the hospital with some respiratory problem.

“All that should be done is to protect the vulnerable and to give them all in the nursing homes that are under your control, give them all 3,000 to 5,000 international units of vitamin D every day which has been shown to radically reduce the likelihood of Infection.

“And I would remind you all that using the province’s own statistics, the risk of death under 65 in this province is one in 300,000. One in 300,000. You’ve got to get a grip on this.

“The scale of the response that you are undertaking with no evidence for it is utterly ridiculous given the consequences of acting in a way that you’re proposing. All kinds of suicides, business closures, funerals, weddings etc. It’s simply outrageous! It’s just another bad flu and you’ve got to get your minds around that.

“Let people make their own decisions. You should be totally out of the business of medicine. You’re being led down the garden path by the chief medical officer of health for this province. I am absolutely outraged that this has reached this level. It should all stop tomorrow.

“Thank you very much”

As a ‘social scientist’ (of sorts) the study I would like to see is on how mass social hysteria (an induced ‘societal-wide’ panic attack) methylates entire peoples’ DNA, damaging their immune function, almost certainly greatly aggravating the numbers of people presenting with serious infections. As well, nothing quite like ignorance effectively preparing populations to be even more susceptible for the next pandemic, eh? [1]

Meanwhile, let’s all be good boys & girls, keep the ignorant nanny state politicians happy so they have no excuses to double-down on their idiocy, i.e. play by the rules dictated by our rulers until they can find their gonads and sanity returns (sooner or later, the idiots should be able to sort ‘It’s the economy, Mr or Ms Stupid MP’), and most of all don’t let fear drive you into a worse social circumstance than that already created.

At nearly 70 years, I don’t need this infection but I also don’t need ‘increased measures’ (social controls), especially if I have had the virus already and gotten over it like any other bad cold.

23 Nov update:

“In their ruling, judges … referred to several scientific studies. Most notably this study by Jaafar et al., which found that – when running PCR tests with 35 cycles or more – the accuracy dropped to 3%, meaning up to 97% of positive results could be false positives. The ruling goes on to conclude that, based on the science they read, any PCR test using over 25 cycles is totally unreliable. Governments and private labs have been very tight-lipped about the exact number of cycles they run when PCR testing, but it is known to sometimes be as high as 45″
