In what is now an infamous headline, disgraced journalist Andrew Neil boldly claimed it was “time to punish Britain’s five million vaccine refuseniks” back in December 2021. The Daily Mail outrageously allowed him to publicly cry that the unvaccinated “put us all at risk of more restrictions. So why shouldn’t we curb their freedoms?”.
But it turns out that not only was this targeted discrimination and abuse, it was also an outright lie. Why? Because official figures published by the UK Health Security Agency show there are 18.9 million people in England alone who have refused to have a single dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, and that total increases to 30.5 million when we take into account those who have refused a second or third dose.
And further data published by the UK Health Security Agency also proves it was the vaccinated who should have been punished and who should have had their freedoms curbed, because they are the ones who have been more likely to be infected with Covid-19, they are the ones who have been more likely to take up hospital beds with Covid-19, and they are the ones who have been more likely to die of Covid-19 since the turn of the year.
Andrew Neil isn’t the only one to have peddled this outright lie, it was actually first spouted back in September 2021 by the UK Government’s chief scientific advisor Sir Patrick Vallance during a televised Covid-19 briefing.
“There are five million or so people who are eligible for vaccines now who haven’t been vaccinated,” Sir Patrick boldly claimed.
Well, it turns out that “or so” equates to approximately 14 million more people, because as of 22nd May 2022, the UK Health Security Agency confirms that there are at least 18,901,016 people who have not had a single dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.
The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) replaced Public Health England in the second half of 2021, and is sponsored by the Department for Health and Social Care and headed by Dr Jenny Harries.
The agency has been quietly publishing a whole host of statistics relating to Covid-19 and Covid-19 vaccination for months that frankly proves the situation is terrible for those who have been vaccinated. But before we move on to that, let’s take a look at what’s hidden within their monotonous ‘Weekly national Influenza and COVID-19 surveillance report’.
