You bloody liars: ‘Scientists discover trove of over 5,500 new viruses hidden in the ocean’. ‘Viruses’ = Rockefellers = Gates = World Health Organisation = complete scam
At least 5,500 new virus species have reportedly been found across the world’s oceans in a major new discovery published by an international team of researchers in the Science journal on Thursday.
The team stated that they had achieved this advance by using machine-learning analyses in tandem with traditional evolutionary trees to assess some 35,000 water samples from around the globe.
The group was specifically searching for new viruses that contained RNA genetic material, stating that the scientific community understands relatively little about these kinds of viruses when it comes to the wider world.
“Whereas DNA viruses are known to be abundant, diverse, and commonly key ecosystem players, RNA viruses are insufficiently studied outside disease settings,” reads the report’s abstract. “Using new approaches to optimize discovery and classification, we identified RNA viruses that necessitate substantive revisions of taxonomy (doubling phyla and adding >50% new classes) and evolutionary understanding.”
The report points out that the most abundant collection of newly identified species belongs to a completely new classification, or phylum, which the scientists have proposed dubbing “Taraviricota,” as a nod to the source of the 35,000 water samples, The Tara Oceans Consortium.
“There’s so much new diversity here – and an entire phylum, the Taraviricota, were found all over the oceans, which suggests they’re ecologically important,” the study’s lead author, Matthew Sullivan, from Ohio State University said in a statement.
The scientists say that the newly discovered “Taraviricota” phyla, which could be the missing link in early RNA virus evolution dating back billions of years, and another new phyla, the “Arctiviricot,” are extremely widespread and dominant in the oceans, and that the research of these new species will “provide foundational knowledge critical to integrating RNA viruses into ecological and epidemiological models.”

Insane UK councils tell holidaymakers ‘to wear face masks on some of UK’s most popular beaches’ amid rise in “Covid” cases’ (People testing positive with a test not testing for a virus)
Holidaymakers have been advised to keep wearing masks on some of the UK’s most popular beaches, according to reports.
Cornwall Council has asked visitors to use a face covering and exercise social distancing, citing a high number of Covid cases in the county.
The move was echoed by the local authority that covers the Lincolnshire resorts of Skegness and Mablethorpe in a bid to ensure ‘the virus isn’t spread unnecessarily.’
Cornwall Council wrote a Facebook
post on Friday asking for visitors to ‘wash their hands, wear a face covering where you can and keep your distance in crowded places this Easter’.
According to the Telegraph
, it also urged anyone who was feeling unwell or had coronavirus symptoms to stay at home.
A spokesman for Public Health Lincolnshire warned holidaymakers and day trippers that ‘Covid is still with us’ and they should take ‘personal responsibility’.
The advice comes as Covid cases begin to fall across most of the UK, according to the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics.

The Anxiety Pandemic Created by SAGE’s Project Fear
Much has been said about how fear has been used to drive the narrative and help impose restrictions on personal liberty we have faced during the pandemic. In this article I would like to suggest that anxiety, rather than fear itself, has become the much bigger concern, and one whose effects will haunt us for years to come.
If we take a step back for a moment, we can see that psychological language has been in the spotlight throughout the last two years. Some sections of the media and various bodies of experts have undoubtedly used their influence to generate fear in the general public. Although fear can paralyse our thoughts and actions, I believe that what we have actually been subject to has been a deliberate attempt to generate massive levels of societal anxiety. As a psychologist, I believe that anxiety, rather than fear, will turn out to be a major health problem facing individuals in the years ahead. Due to a number of complex factors operating at personal and community levels, the incidence of clinical and sub-clinical anxiety has never been higher in the U.K. population. The data to support this claim are well known, and yet, we have just been through a situation where psychologists on SAGE supported by others have deliberately stoked anxiety to increase compliance around various Covid measures.
It is quite usual in everyday speech to use terms like fear and anxiety interchangeably. Most of the time this is not a problem, and reflects a basic and commonly held view that these terms describe an uncomfortable emotion which is a reaction to a perceived or real threat. In fact, however, these words describe different psychological conditions with important distinctions. If we look at fear first, a key feature is that it is always related to a specific cause. In straightforward terms, we always know what it is we are afraid of, and our response involves either ‘fight or flight’. Now, if we reflect on our own personal experience, we know that anxiety is quite different to fear, not least because it is often much harder to state exactly what we are so anxious about.
Indeed, the best definitions of anxiety describe it as apprehension about a future event, and one thing we can say about the future is that it is by definition very uncertain. The way the pandemic narrative has changed so often over the course of the last two years, uncertainty about the efficacy of masks, the lethality of different strains of the virus, doubts about whether non-symptomatic transmission is possible, and changes in advice about who should be vaccinated, are just some of the sources of anxiety we have been subject to.

“Eye-Watering” SAGE Models Had “Too Much Weight”: Another SAGE Scientist Recants His Lockdown Zealotry as the Winds Change
The U.K. relied too much on “very scary” SAGE models to decide on lockdowns, according to the man behind some of those very projections who repeatedly called for longer lockdowns. MailOnline has more
Just months after SAGE predicted 6,000 deaths per day and called for a Christmas lockdown in response to Omicron, Professor John Edmunds said the models were only supposed to be “one component” of decision-making but were leaned on too much by ministers.
He accepted the models failed to account for the economic harm and the knock-on health effects that lockdowns caused.
Professor Edmunds admitted that these harms “in principle” could have been factored into models “but in practice they were not”.
His remarks come as Britons face the harsh reality of two years’ of shutting down the economy and health service, with the NHS grappling a backlog crisis that has seen one in nine people in England stuck on an NHS waiting list for treatment and inflation at its highest point in 30 years.
The epidemiologist, who was among the most outspoken members of SAGE, said some of the death projections in the model were “truly eye-watering”.
Speaking at a medical conference on Tuesday, he said: “The epidemiological model is only one component [of decision-making] and I wondered and I worried that we’d had too much weight.”

Mingling Among Vaccinated Can Make Vaccines Appear Less Effective
(Reuters) – Increased contact among vaccinated people can give the false impression that COVID-19 vaccines are not working, researchers warn.
Some studies have suggested that vaccinated individuals are becoming infected at higher rates than unvaccinated individuals, but these studies are likely to involve statistical errors, particularly if they did not account for different contact patterns among vaccinated vs unvaccinated people, said Korryn Bodner of St. Michael’s Hospital, Unity Health Toronto.
Using computer models to simulate epidemics with a vaccine that protects against infection and transmission, her team identified conditions that could create “a perfect storm for observing negative vaccine effectiveness even when a vaccine was efficacious,” Bodner told Reuters.
For example, effective vaccines could appear ineffective when vaccinated people have more contact with each other than with unvaccinated people, when vaccine benefits become lower but are not absent (as has happened with new SARS-CoV-2 variants), or when effectiveness is measured while an epidemic is growing (such as when a new variant is emerging), according to a report posted on medRxiv ahead of peer review.
The simulations do not prove that this type of bias affected studies of vaccine effectiveness versus the Omicron variant. They show, however, that “even if vaccines work, increased contact among vaccinated persons can lead to the appearance of the vaccine not working,” Bodner said.

Eric Clapton, 76, cancels shows over ‘Covid’ after calling vaccines ‘mass hypnosis’: (1) He DOESN’T have ‘Covid’ – he tested positive with a test not testing for it; (2) Even if he had the fake vaccines DON’T WORK
Eric Clapton has postponed two gigs in Europe after falling sick with Covid-19.
The Tears In Heaven singer, 76, was forced to cancel shows in Zurich and Milan, due to take place on May 20 and 21 respectively, as he is ‘suffering’ with the virus.
Clapton – who previously described vaccine mandates as ‘mass hypnosis’ – is expected to reschedule the shows for later in the year.
The singer’s team made the announcement this week while admitting it was ‘very frustrating’ Clapton had caught Covid.
‘Eric Clapton is unfortunately suffering from Covid having tested positive shortly after the second concert at the Royal Albert Hall,’ they wrote in a statement.
‘He has been told by his medical advisors that if he were to resume traveling and performing too soon, it could substantially delay his full recovery.’
The statement, posted to Facebook, went on: ‘Eric is also anxious to avoid passing on any infection to any of his band, crew, Promoters, their staff and of course the fans.’
They added that it was ‘very frustrating’ that the musician avoided Covid during lockdown and when there were travel restrictions in place, writing that ‘Eric should have succumbed to Covid at this point in time.’
His team added that they ‘very much hope he will be sufficiently recovered by the end of the week to be able to perform the remainder of the planned performances.’

Health chiefs declare two new Covid ‘variants of concern’ – but experts say there is NO reason to panic. Okay, I won’t then
Two more types of Omicron
were today classified as Covid variants of concern, but experts insist there is no need to worry.
Only a small number of cases of BA.4 and BA.5 have been identified in Britain so far.
But data suggests they are likely to have a ‘growth advantage’ over BA.2 — currently the dominant variant.
As of May 20, 115 cases of probable or confirmed BA.4 had been identified, with 67 in England, 41 in Scotland, six in Wales and one in Northern Ireland
Meanwhile, 80 cases of BA.5 have already been detected, made up of 48 in England, 25 in Scotland, six in Northern Ireland and one in Wales.
The news comes as as the latest data shows Covid cases have continued to collapse in England, with the outbreak now reaching its lowest level since mid-December last year.
Professor Ian Jones, a virologist at the University of Reading, said there was no need to panic about the new variants because there is no current evidence of increased disease severity.
‘I have also not seen any indication that severity is altered so to what degree a wave might be followed by a rise in hospital cases is unclear,’ he said.
‘So, [it’s] disappointing news in the sense that it may reverse the current downward trend but otherwise no real need to worry yet.’
