A response to recent media attack on eminent NZ epidemiologist Dr Simon Thornley : “Open letter from Mary Hobbs, NZ author”

“AN OPEN LETTER TO CHARLIE MITCHELL

Hello Charlie,

I read your article on Dr Simon Thornley and observed your positioning of this eminent and well-respected epidemiologist with those who dare to question the current narrative from the “single source of truth”, almost as though to infer there was a tainted whiff that emanated from these courageous people,that would brush off onto this outstanding doctor who dares to speak out in a world gone mad —the madness aided, in the main, by complicit media. In your article, you mention that Dr Thornley considers the catastrophic damage as a result of the lockdowns worse than the virus. His statement was brushed as ideas of little consequence, but perhaps you haven’t strayed far enough to see for yourself the degree of suffering that has occurred as a result of locking down a population of 5 million, for it seems Dr Thornley makes a good point.”

Dr Simon Thornley: NZ University Statistics Dilute the Covid19 Narrative & Confounds Govt & Critics

Our Planet 675 subscribers This insightful interview of Dr Simon Thornley of Auckland University again shows that there are good reasons for us in this country to question authority and then furnished with new, rigorous evidence – chart our own course. During the COVID lockdown crises, NZ as a country hunkered down as a “Team of Five Million” as the Prime Minister called us. We essentially did what we thought was in the best interests for the nation as a whole. However, after a short time there came from the academic realm, another voice that said hold on a moment, the statistics coming in seem to be not telling the full story, so let’s take another look at what’s really happening? This voice was Dr Simon Thornley who courageously stated that the facts were indeed not clearly stated. He also noted that Professor John Ioannidis of the Department of Epidemiology from Stanford University in the US was finding the same slanted stats and later on – Prof Carl Heneghan of Oxford University, in the UK also noted this. When Simon looked at the early evidence at the first stages of the lockdown – of who were in hospital or were very unwell the statistics showed people dying who were actually expected to die in a short while anyway – as a result of old age or other comorbidities – such as heart problems, cancer and other ends of life ailments. The statistics that he was able to gather showed by far the majority of people who were dying were in the 80s to 90s. This was supported in a Sky News Broadcast on the 20th of September they said that …. Back in July a statistical anomaly was spotted which changed the way COVID 19 deaths were counted. Previously Public Health England included any death of a person who had previously had Covid 19 as a Corona virus fatality even if they had recovered from the virus and died of another cause – and the person who spotted that was professor Carl Hennigan from the University of Oxford – who has been quite critical of the UK lockdown, going a step further stating that the British PM was surrounded by mediocre advisors! In the interview, Simon lays out the anomalies and says that we in NZ need to be cautious, protect the elderly in particular and open up the country which means schools as well. There are a good number of profound points covered in this ranging interview and the big one is that this Covid is very much like a very severe flu. Saying that this virus is not as deadly as we had initially believed. The Interview: https://www.ourplanet.org/greenplanet…
