Health Secretary: UK to Move All Over 70’s to “Death Camps”

[Editor’s note: This story from RT is scurrilous, bad journalism where they have taken a small snippett of truth and spun it to fit their own propaganda agenda.

There are no nefarious plans to put people in death camps, this whole story is making a mountain out of a molehill.

The simple truth is that the govt. stated that at some time in the coming weeks, it may announce that people in ‘at risk’ categories, which is the over-70s and those with pre-existing medical conditions, would be ADVISED to stay at home and only venture out for essential reasons, such as shopping for food & supplies, visiting the doctor etc.

Thanks RT, just the sort of bad reporting and fearmongering we need right now. Ian]


RT: UK’s Health Secretary confirmed plans to isolate people aged over 70 for up to four months amid a coronavirus pandemic. The goal is to protect them, but critics say it may be a really bad idea.

Isolating the elderly is “clearly in the action plan” Health Secretary Matt Hancock has told Sky News, confirming earlier reports in the British media. “We will be setting it out with more detail when it’s the right time to do,” he added, which may come within weeks.

“We absolutely appreciate that it is a very big ask of the elderly and the vulnerable, and it’s for their own self-protection,” Hancock told Sky News’ Sophy Ridge.

Earlier ITV’s political editor Robert Peston said the British government was likely to enforce a “wartime-style” mobilization effort and other emergency measures, including isolation of elderly people.

The plan to have elderly people isolated for months is a testament to the toll that the Tory governments’ measures had on the NHS. It also subjects them to increased risks of depression and other problems, some critics say.
