Many were the voices from the areas of research, doctors, epidemiologists, pathologists as well as psychologists, economists and jurists who warned that the real dimension of the problem was being exaggerated and that there were other ways of dealing with it, besides the fact that the excessive focus on a single disease would be underestimating and delegating to the background other, much more serious problems of society. All were ignored, censored on social networks and even discredited by the general media.
We lived in a moral panic for 2 years: it was acceptable to die of everything except the Covid label.
The confinement of healthy people is a medieval technique and without any support. The criticism of indiscriminate PCR tests, the widespread use of masks, the closing of schools, the systematic confinement and the massive vaccination of the population in the middle of a pandemic with an experimental technology were not even discussed, but rather linked to extreme right-wing theories and accused of misinformation.
As a health professional I consider it an imperative of conscience to bring out the other side of the story and enlighten the population. There is no consensus when divergent opinions are simply silenced. There is no informed consent when the technique used is coercion.
“The welfare of mankind has always been the justification of tyrants. Never, ever, can fear be used as a weapon.
It is time to question the WHO, who funds it and on whose behalf it speaks. It is time to look at why the terms and definitions have changed in recent years. Why did the definition of a pandemic change in 2008? Why was the Pandemic Management Protocol that the WHO itself drew up in 2019 and was followed by Sweden reneged on? Why was the “test, test, test” model followed when it was already known that the test was extremely sensitive and the containment phase was long overdue? Why were other therapies with years of safety testing not tried prioritising new and experimental techniques instead? Why do we insist on saying that an asymptomatic person is a sick person?
Where have principles such as “first do no harm” gone? Why do we underestimate the doctor-patient relationship? Why do we deny what makes us human and value distance? How can the lack of relationships and affection be considered an effective way to manage health?
The International Congress on Pandemic/Health Management intends to create a non-hostile environment for debate where bridges can be built and objectives set. Because the world cannot be divided into good and bad and it is in its grey areas that solutions are found. I invite you to join us in this Forum of ideas.
