Where is the independent view?

It is amazing that Byron Shire’s ‘independent’ media is swallowing whole the massive hoax of counting all who die ‘with’ COVID-19 as dying ‘from’ the disease. The average age of the COVID-caused deaths is 80 years. Almost all of those had other, fatal diseases or co-morbidities.

Destroying employment and businesses is a counter-productive response to a seasonal flu. Numerous doctors and nurses that I have spoken to in our almost empty hospitals recognise the official response to this flu as ‘ridiculous’.
