By the pricking of my thumbs… the “second wave” approaches

If you’d prefer to read this episode, you can download a transcript here.

According to the UK government’s SAGE advisory committee, Britain could suffer 85,000 coronavirus deaths this winter in a – quotes – “reasonable worst case scenario”.
And yet Covid deaths in the UK have fallen to almost zero.

I’ve been concerned about the flu vaccine for months. Why do some people get very seriously ill from Covid-19, or even die from it, while many others barely notice they have it?

There seems to be some evidence that the flu vaccine could be triggering some sort of reaction with coronavirus to make the symptoms much more severe, via a syndrome known as “respiratory virus interference”.

This is of huge concern to me. I would like the UK government to hold back the rollout of the flu vaccine, pending urgent research into the effects of the flu vaccine on Covid-19.
