My apologies, the ONS figure was 201 (up to March 25th). It isn't really significant and we don't know which days the deaths were on. As it stands it is just 'another 201 deaths' from ?? to March 25th.

National Guardsman At NY Testing Center Says Media Has Overblown COVID19 Pandemic "It's the Flu!"



This one is on a channel whose owner wears a much bigger tin foil hat than I. I haven't verified the person in the video, so use discernment.
Why You CANNOT and Will NEVER "Catch" Coronavirus



I don't know if anyone else is picking up on this, but it seems to me that there are two counter arguments starting with regard to COVID-19. That the governments are portraying; that this is a very dangerous virus outbreak and we must oppress every man woman and child for their own good, and those from other people, what I suppose you would call as conspiracy theorists stating the opposite, that this is no big deal really. It is starting to become quite difficult to work out what is factually correct and weeding through the headlines of overreacting MSM is becoming a bit of a chore. Such as headlines like this:
Death toll rises at Blackpool Victoria Hospital as confirmed cases continue to rocket
https://www.blackpoolgazette.co.uk/health/coronavirus/death-toll-rises-blackpool-victoria-hospital-confirmed-cases-continue-rocket-2524068
Upon reading the article it is two. Two people have died in one of the biggest hospitals in Lancashire, with a case total of........ wait for it.......18. Yup, just 18 cases in the whole of Blackpool (and if correct, that 18 would include the two dead.) I'm starting to wonder if there is some kind of underground campaign to create disinformation one way or another. If there is, I haven't figured out which way it is going. It just seems there is a lot more crap about. This could be because the story is getting a little old now so the MSM are doing what they can to keep it sensational, and also given more time for people to get the wrong idea, or the right one.... Bleh, And now on BBC news on TV, some Russian saying it is an American biological weapon. I have started to understand that if the BBC puts a Russian on saying it is an American weapon, it is probably not.... but makes a good story!
