Fed Up Flyer Reference List
Welcome! So, you have a Fed Up with COVID flyer in your hand and you’re looking for more info to back up the claims on the sheet? You’re in the right place!
Read on to find the references and share them with your friends. (We will be adding further to these facts as more information comes to light)…
FACT 1: SARS-CoV-2 isn’t new – there is evidence it has been around since March 2019.
“All samples came out to be negative for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 genomes with the exception of March 12, 2019, in which both IP2 and IP4 target assays were positive. This striking finding indicates circulation of the virus in Barcelona long before the report of any COVID-19 case worldwide. Barcelona is a business and commerce hub, as well as a popular venue for massive events, gathering visitors from many parts of the world. It is nevertheless likely that similar situations may have occurred in several other parts of the world, with circulation of unnoticed COVID-19 cases in the community.”
FACT 2: There’s no evidence that lockdowns work to reduce overall mortality in a population.
“These responses to a virus whose impact on mortality is akin to the 1957 and 1968 pandemics may well puzzle future historians. Why did we respond so differently in 2020? Why was lockdown used as a primary tool, when the prior view was that the negative consequences of large-scale quarantine are so extreme that this mitigation measure should be eliminated from serious consideration?”
The scientific report published in Nature says:
“In ~ 98% of the comparisons using 87 different regions of the world we found no evidence that the number of deaths/million is reduced by staying at home. Regional differences in treatment methods and the natural course of the virus may also be major factors in this pandemic…”
There have been some studies recently matching Google movement data to Covid19 patterns but this is the most exhaustive and therefore conclusive: countries using lockdowns have wasted their time, lives, and economies, and canot even claim a benefit in reduced heaths. It also means that whatever has kept the NZ experience mild so far, has not been our fabled ‘elimination’ strategy.
The tragedy of it all is, as the study authors conclude, is that the lockdown advice from authorities therefore appears to be based on a very common error of judgement known as the ‘exception fallacy’. That is where something that could be true for an individual is therefore concluded to be true for a population. In this case, that if an individual stays at home, they won’t catch a virus, so if everyone stays home, no one catches a virus. Stated like that, the policy seems like lunacy – but it has been promoted and enforced by people who consider themselves experts.”
FACT 3: We’re not allowed to know if we’ve had Covid-19: Public SARS-CoV-2 antibody testing is banned in New Zealand.
FACT 4: Asymptomatic people are not established to be significant transmitters of infection.
FACT 5: The average age of death attributed to Covid-19 is higher than the regular average age of death.
Average age of death: 80.89 years.
Median COVID-19 death: 84 years.

Median COVID-19 death: 83 years.

FACT 6. Typical mask wearing does not reduce SARS-CoV-2 infection rates (COVID-19).
A high-quality, large-scale Danish study published November 2020 found
NO evidence that wearing a face mask significantly minimised people’s risk of contracting COVID-19.
The randomised-control trial found no statistically significant difference in coronavirus infection rates between mask-wearers and non-mask-wearers. In fact, according to the data, mask usage may
actually increase the likelihood of infection.
FACT 7: The PCR test on its own is not appropriate as a diagnostic tool for Covid-19.
“Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, said, “Ideally, you want an antiviral vaccine to do two things… first, reduce the likelihood you will get severely ill and go to the hospital, and two, prevent infection and therefore interrupt disease transmission.”
Yet the current phase III trials are not actually set up to prove either (table 1). None of the trials currently under way are designed to detect a reduction in any serious outcome such as hospital admissions, use of intensive care, or deaths. Nor are the vaccines being studied to determine whether they can interrupt transmission of the virus.”

FACT 9: We’ve heard nothing about proven therapeutics. Why are our health authorities ignoring the science on vitamin D and Ivermectin?
NOTE: Our flyers have received a great deal of media attention.
