State Hypochondria: UK Covid Inquiry Demands Virus Testing for All Attendees

One thing is now certain: after three years of state-issued propaganda and Big Pharma misinformation, the overreaction to the so-called ‘global pandemic’ by state agencies and mainstream media has induced a near permanent widespread wave of paranoia among a section of the public and members of the state’s increasingly bloated bureaucracy. 

For those completely loyal and compliant to this rolling “state of emergency” narrative, the COVID-19 pseudo pandemic has made the world seem like a ‘less safe’ and hostile place to live. This imagined sense of danger and irrational fear of invisible viruses has led people to feel that others around them are a threat. This main fear is the foundation of the whole ‘public health’ psychological operation surround Covid mass hysteria.

It began just before the initial phase of the alleged ‘pandemic’ in 2020, and was quickly ramped-up with applied behavioural psychology messaging and coercive tactics which were successful in increasing individuals’ paranoia and feelings of hypochondria about the mythical “asymptomatic spread” of the alleged ‘novel coronavirus,’ thus, causing previously rational behaviours to give way to a much more erratic and reflexive set of responses to what can only be described as an imaginary threat.

This state-induced mental disorder was then compounded by state-mandated mask-wearing and other intimidation tactics. Relentless rebroadcasting of the official state conspiracy narratives caused the more paranoid Covid ‘true believers’ to endorse the state’s most outlandish conspiracies about the supposed safety and efficacy of mask-wearing and ‘miracle’ vaccines – all of which turned out to be patently untrue.

Three years later, it seems that fascist elements in the state’s agencies are still determined to enforce the official science fiction…

UK Telegraph reports…

The Covid-19 inquiry is demanding that attendees test for the virus more than a year after the Government scrapped lateral flow tests.

Ahead of its first public hearings starting on Tuesday, the multi-million pound inquiry has been accused of “overkill” after requesting that all staff and visitors take a lateral flow test before attending the hearing centre.

The inquiry’s “Covid policy” states that anyone attending the hearings daily should test for the virus at the beginning of each week, while those coming on individual days should test “in advance of attending”.

Those who test positive have been asked to stay away.

The inquiry’s guidance contradicts advice by the Government, which scrapped free symptomatic and asymptomatic testing more than one year ago in April 2022.

A five-page Covid policy document published by the inquiry stated: “Though the UK Government no longer requires people to self-isolate if they test positive for Covid-19, we are asking those who test positive to stay away from the hearings.”

The inquiry has said that while lateral flow tests are not mandatory, it will not be reimbursing visitors – including core participants and bereaved families – who do take the tests as asked.

Staff at the centre, which include legal teams, contractors and security staff, will be provided with tests.

‘Unnecessary barrier’

Gareth Johnson, the Conservative MP for Dartford, said the testing demand was an “unnecessary barrier” for participants.

“This request from the inquiry seems like overkill to me and runs the very real risk of preventing some people from attending the inquiry if they can’t obtain a test or can’t afford one,” he said. “It’s an unnecessary barrier.”

The inquiry has said the purpose of its Covid policy, which also includes the provision of free face coverings to visitors and 16 ventilation units in the hearing centre, is to “reduce the risk of Covid transmission while the inquiry holds its hearings”.

In an echo of policies in place during the height of the pandemic, there will also be hand-sanitising stations throughout the venue, while the cleaning team will be “frequently cleaning and disinfecting objects that are touched regularly, such as door handles and light switches”.

A “disinfectant fogging treatment” will also be used on surfaces in the hearing room and other rooms each evening.

Baroness Hallett, the inquiry’s chairman, will begin hearing evidence from the Government’s former pandemic planners this week, as pandemic “resilience and preparedness” is examined.

Tuesday’s first full hearing comes more than two years after the inquiry was first announced, amid concerns it is becoming expensive and bloated.

The Telegraph previously revealed the Government was planning for it to last up to seven years, with the bill having hit more than £114 million before the first hearings had even begun.

The session on Tuesday will open with a statement from Lady Hallett, followed by a short film showing the impact of the pandemic, according to a statement on the Covid inquiry’s website.

The rest of the opening day will be taken up with the opening statements by the counsel to the Inquiry and core participants. Epidemiologists Prof Jimmy Whitworth and Dr Charlotte Hammer will be the first to give evidence in person, starting on Wednesday afternoon.

Another epidemiologist, Prof David Heymann, will appear on Thursday along with Bruce Mann, a former head of civil contingencies secretariat of the Cabinet Office who helped the country respond to the 2009 swine flu pandemic.

Prof David Alexander, a professor of risk and disaster reduction, will also appear.

On Friday, public health experts Prof Sir Michael Marmot and Prof Clare Bambra will give evidence before Ms Hammond’s afternoon appearance.

The investigation is split into six modules, with public hearings scheduled to conclude by summer 2026, with the first interim reports expected next year.

While no prominent politicians will appear this week, lawyers representing victims said they were concerned about witnesses being given just a few hours to answer questions.

It comes as the care minister refused to back Matt Hancock’s claim that the Government threw a “protective ring” around care homes at the start of the pandemic – a claim expected to come under scrutiny by the Covid inquiry in the coming months.

‌Asked if the former health secretary was correct in his statement made in May 2020, Helen Whately told The Guardian that she wanted to “use my own words, which is that I look back on doing everything I felt that we could to help care homes and social care more broadly at an incredibly difficult time”.

‌The Telegraph’s Lockdown Files revealed Ms Whately, who worked under the former health secretary during the first 18 months of the pandemic, warned him that restricting visits to care homes was “inhumane” and that elderly people were “just giving up”.

She sent a WhatsApp message to Mr Hancock in Oct 2020 warning him against preventing “husbands seeing wives”, as England moved into a “tiered” lockdown system with tighter restrictions in areas with higher levels of Covid.
