Questioning Covid: Beware of the Flu

The writer is neither a scientist nor medical doctor but simply a writer/researcher who explores critical issues facing our planet. The content herein explores the subject of Covid-19 in Bermuda, and the concerns currently being raised regarding how the "crisis" is being managed (or mis-managed) by the Government.

This and subsequent articles dealing with the same subject are open for correction, refutation, or debate; but it is the general intention to provoke residents to begin asking more questions regarding their own physical and emotional health and wellbeing, as opposed to the wilful surrender of our very lives to the care and direction of politicians. 

From Bermuda Source

In late 2019, the entire world was gradually introduced to an emerging new strain of Coronavirus, now known as Covid-19. From the official narrative, we were told that this new virus (or Covid-19) originated from bats in the province of Wuhan in China, which supposedly infected thousands of people in Wuhan. (more on that later)

From January-March 2020, Covid-19 quickly travelled west, across the far east and Europe, before appearing in the UK and eventually spread into western nations, such as Canada, the United States and of course, Bermuda, where infection rates quickly began to rise.

It should here be noted that in 2020, the world population was estimated to be 7.8 billion souls; but with only 118,000 cases reported in 110 nations across the world, on March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) immediately declared this new viral spread as a “Pandemic”. (More on Pandemic later)

By March 18, 2020, Bermuda recorded what was said to be just two cases of Covid-19, imported from overseas. Within one week of the first recorded cases, the government immediately imposed closures and/or restrictions on select businesses. By March 29, 2020, Bermuda recorded 17 cases of Covid-19

On April 1, 2020, barely a month after the World Health Organization’s dire declaration, and with just over 30 reported cases of Covid-19 on the island, the government declared a State of Emergency, which, in retrospect, was an aggressive and unwise move to make.

On April 4, 2020, with just 37 reported cases of Covid-19 in Bermuda, the government ordered all residents to “shelter in place” for an initial period of two weeks. 37 cases of a new flu virus, which at that time did not even reach the numbers for a typical flu season, was all it took to crush an already fragile economy and toss thousands of residents into unemployment…37 cases.

It must here be noted that there are some "conspiratorial" minds (Conspiracies do exist) who assert that government leaders shut the island down while being fully aware that there was no real or genuine threat. The intention was to purposely crash the economy. The plan was to initiate a lockstep criminal conspiracy with foreign entities to propagate a false crisis (pandemic) to manipulate fear and ignorance of a matter as to seduce island residents to accept a resolution to the crisis, which was planned in advance.

For example, if the plan was to roll out a vaccine, which would intentionally make people sick (this has been reported) or to gradually sicken people over an extended period of time (depopulation agenda) then the vaccine was the long-term goal. Covid-19 is simply the means to achieve that goal, and thus, the use of the word "pandemic" is simply a "scare tactic" to frighten people into being injected with a foreign substance they would never allow into their bodies under "normal" circumstances. 

It must also be noted that as of 2020, and prior to the onset of Covid-19, the population of Bermuda was estimated to be 62,000 residents. So, with less than 40 reported cases of Covid-19, out of a population of 62,000 residents, destroying the economy and putting thousands of residents out of work, was the better option than to support the economy, contain those 37 cases (the airport was already closed) and closely monitor for the spread of the virus across a wider demographic. This would later prove to be a more strategic course of action.

During Covid’s initial spread throughout Europe and its eventual spread into western nations, the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) reported the following symptoms as an indication of possible Covid-19 infection:

Fever or chills


Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing


Muscle or body aches


Sore throat

Congestion or runny nose

Compare the Covid symptoms with the list of Flu symptoms also reported by the Centre for Disease Control:

fever* or feeling feverish/chills


sore throat

runny or stuffy nose

muscle or body aches


fatigue (tiredness)

By April 16, 2020, with 83 cases of Covid in Bermuda, the government extended the Shelter in Place directive to May 1, 2020. From May-July 2020, Covid-19 cases leveled off with hardly any case activity until around mid-November, when the number of infections again began to increase prior to the Christmas and New Year’s Eve holidays.

The sudden rise of infected persons prompted the government to reimpose a curfew, effective from December 12, 2020. The curfew was extended into the holidays. The Constitutional legality surrounding the imposition of an island wide curfew, under those circumstances, was never questioned or challenged.

Some would argue that the initial decision to shut the island down at the beginning of April, was the right choice; but we were merely confronted with a scant 37 “reported” cases of a virus no more dangerous than the flu. Statistically, Bermuda, like the rest of the world was in more danger from the flu virus in the previous two years, but not a single national government sounded an alarm, shut down their economies or appealed to the World Health Organization to call for a global pandemic, even though millions died from the flu and other ailments made worse by the flu. Who cared then?

Bermuda’s Covid-19 infection numbers hovered for months between 225-250 cases. In the decade prior to Covid-19, 250 cases of a viral infection, causing respiratory distress would indicate a normal flu season.

Out of a population of 62,000 residents, would it not be typical to expect at least 250 people, perhaps all at the same time, to experience flu-like symptoms, such as coughing, sneezing, runny nose, and congestion? Have many of us not experienced a friend or family member who passed away from respiratory ailments or other disease made worse by respiratory ailments? It happens every year.

Since Covid-19 was new to the world – a novel (new) virus with identical symptoms as the more dominant flu virus, why did the government move so hastily to shut down the island after a paltry 37 cases were reported? And why report those few cases as Covid-19 in the first place and not the flu, which might have been a more accurate diagnosis, due to the prevalence of the flu virus prior to Covid-19?

Most people out of any population in the world do not read statistics. Such would do well to learn that according to the Centre for Disease Control, the flu virus killed millions of people in 2018 and 2019, many of whom suffered with pre-existing health ailments.

As of April 2021, Bermuda recorded 12 deaths supposedly from Covid-19. How many of those reported cases involved victims with pre-existing health conditions or compromised immune systems? It is no stretch of the imagination to assume that zero fatalities in Bermuda were the direct result of a virus alone, without the presence of an existing health problem.

And why are international media outlets shoving Covid-19 fatalities down the collective throat of the world when not a word was reported on the deadly flu virus wreaking even worse havoc prior to 2020?

A recent (revised) circular on social media in Bermuda, reported that as we enter the month of April 2021, there are no reported cases of the flu in Bermuda. To be clear, please note that it was reported that there are no “reported” cases of the flu in Bermuda, which is not to be misinterpreted to mean “no cases at all.”

However, the fact that there are zero reported cases of the flu, may subconsciously imprint the belief that it has vanished – as if Covid-19 has somehow overwhelmed and absorbed the flu virus itself.

The message following was even more preposterous, which advised that anyone in Bermuda who experiences flu-like symptoms should immediately “assume” they have contracted Covid-19! Even though both the flu and the supposed Covid virus cause the same symptoms! That simply means your body reacts in a manner typical of how it should respond when trying to rid itself of an invader. How else do we expect our physical bodies to respond?

According to the Global Health Report, Covid-19 has killed 2.84 million people worldwide in just over one year. That is astronomically lower than deaths related to the flu virus in recent years. At this early stage, the initial question is, does Covid-19 appear as the deadly threat portrayed by the media and the government, to be called a "pandemic"?

If we briefly examine Covid-19, purely in relation to the flu, then it can clearly be demonstrated that it invades the body like the flu. It replicates in the body like the flu. It sickens the body like the flu. It provokes the same symptoms as the flu and it even kills, just like the flu; but thus far, it has claimed significantly less victims in the same space of a year. This has never NOT been the stark reality for every nation across the globe year in and year out. Millions die every year from viruses. We all know this, whether consciously or unconsciously.

So why is the government so aggressive in its campaign to make Covid appear to be more than what it is? Are we really experiencing a pandemic? Is that what we are observing with our eyes? I mean, if we know what a real pandemic is, do you “see” a real one?

What constitutes a genuine Pandemic?
