David Martin is not a real Dr.
He uses the title to make it seem like he knows what he is talking about.
He is a financial analyst with a youtube channel who makes his money peddling conspiracy theories.

A good rule of thumb is that if someone uses the title Dr to make you think they are a medical professional then they can`t really be trusted on the medical stuff they are talking about.

If you are the conspiracy theory type you will latch on to anything with a pseudo title that gives credance to what you want to believe, regardless of the facts.

If only Sweden had locked down like everyone else, they`d have the same level of excess deaths and the "conspiracy theorists" would not have facts on their side.

The Great Barrington Declaration has been proven correct.

"Sweden is less densely populated"

While Sweden is a large country by area with a relatively small population, most of it`s inhabitants live in large cities 87% live in urban areas.

"At the end of 2018, 87 percent of Sweden`s population lived in an urban area. This share is unchanged from 2015. An urban area has at least 200 inhabitants, according to the Swedish definition, which means that urban areas comprise the largest cities, as well as small areas with just over 200 inhabitants."

Sorry if I don`t trust your source but they have some countries there with more than 100% vaccinated. I would question just how reliable that is.

What I love about this particular conspiracy is that it assumes that all global leaders agreed on something for the first time ever.

The idea that North Korea, Iraq and Israel, for example, would perpetuate the same myth is pretty wild.

And I thought that the folk who believed the USSR and the USA conspired to fake a moon landing was far fetched.

But Sweden would also have been impacted by other countries actions as well... Or did every other country allow Swedish holiday makers to travel and mingle with their local population?
So is it not true that they as a country, were both still in effective lock down and essentially adhered to guidelines without needing them to be put in law?

John Hopkins data sources.

Data source: CDC, WHO, Our World in Data, How to use our data.

John Hopkins rated the best overall hospital in USA for 21 consecutive years.

"Johns Hopkins Hospital is widely regarded as one of the world`s greatest hospitals and medical institutions.[9] It was ranked by U.S. News & World Report news magazine as the best overall hospital in America for 21 consecutive years (1991–2011). In 2019–2020, U.S. News & World Report ranked the hospital on 15 adult specialties and 10 children`s specialties; the hospital came in 1st in Maryland and 3rd nationally behind the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota and Mass General in Boston, Massachusetts.[10] In 2021 the hospital marked 32 consecutive years of placing in the top 5 hospitals in the nation."

Is is not saying 93.5% of Sweden is vaccinated, it is saying that is the percentage vaccinated in their sample size of their study of 2144 participants.

The Source of the number of vaccines administered is the World Health Organization and the source of the population is World in Data (Oxford University).

The countries that show greater than 100% are small islands who`s population was unreliable or UAE where there are large numbers of migrant workers set against a small naturalized population.

If you have more reliable statistics than the WHO and Oxford University feel free to present it.

So Sweden is least vaccinated of the 5 Nordic countries, has the least number of excess deaths and it is one of the most urbanised countries in the world.

It choose the route of herd/natural immunity against lockdowns as recommended in the Great Barrington Declaration.

I don`t recall him citing such mainstream sources as I have done here (The World Health Organisation, Oxford University, OCED, John Hopkins University). If that is a serious accusation rather than a coping mechanism to deal with the evidence I have presented here I would question your deductive reasoning.

Sweden appears to have taken the most successful approach to dealing with Covid, pretty much in line with The Great Barrington Declaration. If you can provide evidence to the contrary, I`d love to hear it.

The video in the OP, did not claim it was a hoax and no one in this thread claimed it was a hoax until "wee eck" showed a few posts ago talking about Boris Johnston.

I can speak from personal experience having being hospitalised with it that is was a very nasty virus.

I`m gonna take a stab and say you didn`t watch the video and you have misconstrued how the word "con" is being used in this instance and you have stumbled into this thread not knowing what it is actually about determined to impart some hubristic wisdom.

My "screeds" of statistics as you put it was to combat sadindiefreak`s misinformation that Sweden had one of the highest vaccination rates in the world, his disinformation about population density and his derision with regard to my reputable sources.

Perhaps a more reliable source would be The Economist, which at the peak of the outbreak, produced a very detailed country-by-country breakdown of excess deaths. Below is a quote from the article...

"Countries in northern Europe have generally experienced much lower mortality rates throughout the pandemic. Some Nordic nations have experienced almost no excess deaths at all. The exception is Sweden, which imposed some of the continent’s least restrictive social-distancing measures during the first wave."

The full article is here...

Yes, I suspected the Spectator would be an issue and that the far-left Economist would be the first port of call.

That article is from October 2021, The Spectator`s is from March 2023. I suspect the Economist is not doing such an article now for the same reason The Spectator did not do one then.

So going straight to the source material, here is the graph for the 5 Nordic countries up till March 2023.



Here is the raw data running from Jan 2021 to Feb 2023, I`d draw your attention to Sweden`s excess death rates compared to the others and to the EU`s average.



Only for two months out of the 24 covered does Sweden`s excess death rates slightly exceed the EU`s average.

Sweden did not get everything right, their use of Midazolam and Opiates in the early stage of the pandemic had a devastating effect, a mistake we also made in the UK but we probably wont get that in the mainstream until those who made the decision are out of power or retired on a tidy pension.

Can I add myself to the list of people asking what the con is or what the summary of the truth is?

I’m not going to watch the video in the OP so if anyone’s committed to it’s content I am sure they can cover off the main talking points in a few words. Seems a bit weird other requests for this have been ignored though

The con was the lockdowns for all.


The truth is thus.

Covid killed people.

Lockdowns killed people.


Somewhere in between strict lockdowns and completely open society is the correct balance to prevent as many deaths as possible.

Sweden was closer to the "completely open society" than other comparable countries, I and others maintain the data is increasing looking like Sweden had the best strategy, others disagree.

The government is to launch a legal challenge over the Covid inquiry`s demand for WhatsApp messages and documents.

It was given until 4pm to disclose messages between Boris Johnson and his advisers during the pandemic, as well as his diaries and notebooks.

The government has refused to disclose some of the material, arguing it is not relevant to the inquiry`s work.

One hospital doctor`s take on things :-

`When the initial data on Covid emerged, there was a very high mortality prediction. Covid was a proper threat to life – extremely transmissible, with a genuine fear that it was going to kill even more people than it did. With hindsight, it’s easy to say some things should have been done differently, but, based on the available evidence, I think governments around the world were acting in people’s best interests.`

That’s fair enough and I suspect most people would agree with you to some extent.

I believe folk are generally done with the whole Covid thing and ‘truth’ and ‘con’ type language just sets expectations of here we go again.

No doubt there were opportunists throughout the pandemic making money off the vulnerable.

However, let’s not airbrush the truth. When covid first came along it was horrible and scary (still is to some vulnerable people). The figures from China were unreliable, and the best guesses the world had to go on was what happened in Italy. If we had followed the Swedish model, the NHS would have gone under. We simply didn’t have the capacity to cope if larger amounts of people became ill at the same time. Hence the initial lockdown decision had to be taken.

The danger of rerunning all this with alternative truths, is the inability to be able to argue a wider picture. You simply cannot compare Swedens approach to ours directly like for like, because culturally, demographically and geographically we are two completely diverse and different nations and cultures.

I do have a number of differences of opinion with various government decisions (across all nations) on their behaviours and actions throughout the pandemic, but the initial decisions to try and stem the virus flow was eventually the correct one. In the circumstances I would say, the most sensible one, any other approach would be gambling with lives.

The strict and overly-extended lockdowns we experienced in the State of Victoria were difficult to handle then. Still, when Victorians today are asked whether they think it was worth it, the overwhelming majority support the measures.

The consensus is that although the measures were considered draconian, thousands of Victorians who might otherwise be dead had we adopted the Swedish approach are alive today. We finally opened the gates to the outside world once the vaccination program was well established.

Before this occurred, we had some protests in Melbourne, but they were tiny in proportion to the number who supported the measures. The real concern then was enormous public resentment towards the protesters and genuine fears that violence would occur.

What happened in Melbourne was a huge social experiment, possibly only matched in cities in China. Did it work? Yes, but it probably could have been handled gentler.

A new report has shed new light on the impact of Nicola Sturgeon`s "intrusive" Covid lockdown restrictions and revealed there is no evidence to say they were effective. Scots were subject to the strictest restrictions in the UK during the pandemic.

The Scottish Government`s handling of coronavirus is going to be scrutinised by the Scottish Covid Inquiry which commissioned an independent report on the epidemiology of the virus.


"insufficient evidence/no evidence to support the use of...."

Face masks outside healthcare settings.
Lockdowns.
Social distancing.
Test, trace and isolate measures.

And on vaccines....

"It remains unclear as to whether or not COVID-19 vaccination has resulted in fewer deaths from COVID-19."

Good news is that handwashing and the use of PPE in hospital settings seems to have been effective.

It`s only saying there is no evidence mask mandates we`re effective. It`s not saying Lockdowns, Social Distancing and Track and Trace didn`t work. Just a lack of evidence outside those settings that masks worked in reducing transmission.

As for COVID 19 deaths it does show short term reduction in deaths but unclear of long term benefits as the effectiveness is fairly short term. Something we all knew and why boosters are being offered.

Well maybe some sort of gypsy crystal ball? or probably more likely they just read the report when it was published on the 10th of July.


https://www.covid19inquiry.scot


• For other measures (e.g. face mask mandates outside of healthcare settings,
Summary – what do we now know?

lockdowns, social distancing, test, trace and isolate measures) there was either insufficient evidence in 2020 to support their use – or alternatively, no evidence; the evidence base has not changed materially in the intervening three years.


• During March to July 2020 there was limited scientific evidence and in some cases no scientific evidence (e.g. as regards lockdowns) to support the physical measures that were mandated in Scotland against COVID-19. Such evidence as there was (e.g. for mask wearing) mostly came from hospital settings, rather than community settings – and arguably was not applicable to the general, non-hospital population.

• Other groups (children, healthy young adults) were not ever at risk of severe disease.

• It remains unclear as to whether or not COVID-19 vaccination has resulted in fewer deaths from COVID-19.

I often scan the headlines in the Mail/Express/Telegraph when browsing the news stands but wouldn`t normally have the opportunity to read any of their anti-SNP/independence propaganda so thanks for that. The readers` comments at the foot of the article are very illuminating. Just in case they didn`t get the context the Express threw in this gratuitous comment :-

`Ms Sturgeon became notorious during the pandemic for giving autocratic daily briefings about how Scotland was coping with the disease and giving out more mandates.`

My recollection was that, at the time, her presentations were compared favourably with the evasive and rambling performances of the UK Prime Minister.

Imagine the reaction if the Scottish government hadn`t advocated vaccinations for the population.

I`m not really interested in political points scoring against TV`s own Elsie McSelfie, she was only slightly more tyrannical than Boris and slightly less authoritarian than Trudeau or Jacinda McHorseface and just as beholden to "The Science" as the big orange fella.

If the Scottish government hadn`t recommended vaccines I`m sure the medical industrial complex would have got Elsie removed.

Masks were performance art, Lockdowns were a power move and I wish everyone well in the coming months and years ahead with the health choices they were coerced into making or managed to resist.

On balance I`m pretty heppy I didn`t take the vaccine, my brothers health deteriorated dramatically within a fortnight of him getting it and he died a few months later (although he wasn`t a well man before, I still thought he had years in him before the vaccine). I do know of several people in my age group, 45-55 who had heart attacks or heart issues after getting the vaccine.

"The likes of" being the key point here. The Telegraph, Express and others have all been referenced in response to your post. Of course, you enjoy to pick and choose your information to suit your narrative. If focussing on the Express, it`s interesting they stick in a needless dig about Sturgeons updates, suggesting they were not well received, which is simply untrue.

As always, being clear that I give zero excrements about the SNP, I`m viewing the findings as helpful. No-one could possibly understand the impact of COVID so actions were taken based on existing health protection guidance. However, as with all experiences, it`s important to reflect on what was and was not effective, which is what this report appears to do.

Similarly, actions taken on care homes were on the basis of current understanding and existing processes at that time.

Sorry to hear about your brother hope you’re keeping well yourself. I’ve not had the vaccine myself either and similarly caught Covid just the once. Taste had gone and I think it was two days where I was just absolutely beyond knackered, then after that was fine and just locked myself away in a room in the house until I got the negative.

Big group off at my work last week, all been at a meeting together the week before. All have the ability to work from home but incapable due to covid. Must be a rough variant.

Imagine the lack of coverage is because almost no official testing is going on or being recorded, therefore nothing specific for the press to fill pages with daily.

There`s a big article about it on the BBC Scotland website. Here`s an extract :-

`The winter vaccination programme starts in Scotland on 4 September but in response to the new cases PHS and Scottish government are now working to bring winter vaccinations forward for those at the highest risk of becoming seriously ill from flu and Covid-19. This includes care home residents, those aged over 75 and those with weakened immune systems who were initially set to receive their vaccinations from mid-October.`

Tested positive on Saturday and I`ve never felt worse, and that`s saying something. Couldn`t get a breath and was nearly on the way to A+E, but thankfully lying on my front really helped. Still feeling rough, with no taste or smell, which is just surreal.
