Former director of Israel Health Ministry says the COVID-19 response is hysteria!

TEL AVIV, Israel (PNN) - May 26, 2020 - Yarram Lass, former director of Israel’s Health Ministry, in a recent interview with Spiked, spoke on the COVID-19 situation, and especially on the outrageousness of the response to it.

Mortality due to coronavirus is a fake number. Most people are not dying from coronavirus. Those recording deaths simply change the label. If patients died from leukaemia, from metastatic cancer, from cardiovascular disease or from dementia, they put coronavirus. Also, the number of infected people is fake, because it depends on the number of tests. The more tests you do the more infected people you get.

The only real number is the total number of deaths - all causes of death, not just coronavirus. If you look at those numbers, you will see that every winter we get what is called an excess death rate. That is, during the winter more people die compared to the average, due to regular, seasonal flu epidemics, which nobody cares about. If you look at the coronavirus wave on a graph, you will see that it looks like a spike.

Coronavirus comes very fast, but it also goes away very fast. The influenza wave is shallow as it takes three months to pass, but coronavirus takes one month. If you count the number of people who die in terms of excess mortality - which is the area under the curve - you will see that during the coronavirus season we have had an excess mortality which is about 15% larger than the epidemic of regular flu in 2017.

Compared to that rise, the draconian measures are of Biblical proportions. Hundreds of millions of people are suffering. In developing countries many will die from starvation. In developed countries many will die from unemployment. Unemployment is mortality. More people will die from the measures than from the virus; and the people who die from the measures are the breadwinners.

People are afraid. People are brainwashed. They do not listen to the data.

Any reasonable expert - that is, anyone but Professor Ferguson from Imperial College who would have locked down everybody when we had swine flu - will tell you that lockdown cannot change the final number of infected people. It can only change the rate of infection. People argue that by changing the rate of infection and “flattening the curve” we prevented the collapse of hospitals. This was the argument in favour of it. But look at Sweden. No lockdown and no collapse of hospitals. The argument for the lockdown collapses.

If you look at the 1950s, we had the Asian flu. In the 1960s, there was the Hong Kong flu. These were worse than this pandemic. Also, look at the story of swine flu in 2009, which began exactly the same as coronavirus. A new virus originated in Mexico. There was no vaccine so it was very frightening. It spread all over the world. It infected one billion people. A quarter of a million people died. But there was no lockdown, no Ferguson, nothing – people were far more interested in the economic crisis that hit a year before in 2008. They did not have time to give attention to this nonsense.

The virus, like the influenza virus, is saying farewell to western Europe for sure. The same in the Middle East. In the United States, we do not know yet, so we should talk in a month from now. But nothing can justify this destruction of people’s lives. It is unbelievable.

Lass is an Israeli physician, researcher and scientist. He served as Director-General of the Ministry of Health and was a member of the Knesset for the Labor Party between 1992 and 1996. He earned a doctorate in medicine at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

He is professor emeritus at the Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University.
