[This unoffical hasty translation of mine follows from the beginning section of “Plandemic in Spain”: Chronicle of the Fear Virus – next section follows]

As of April 2, the peak of deaths in Spain was the result[1] of a mixture of:

  1. Decease by Covid-19, the name of the disease they have been trying to cataloged as new but which has no unique distinctive symptoms and whose connection to the virus SARS-CoV-2 has not been demonstrated. There is no consensus on the form of transmission. It does not follows the postulates of Koch,[2] the basis of modern microbiology, which describes the etiology (study of the origin or cause of diseases) to discover the agent participating in infectious diseases. There are cases of people without symptoms and no contact with another infected person[3] still pending resolution.
  2. Other diseases that continued to kill the same as in previous years, the circulatory system, tumors and respiratory system being the three main causes of deaths.[4]
  3. Forced isolation in hospitals in an environment of collective psychosis, producing panic, loneliness, depression, fear of death in patients, hopelessness etc.
  4. Seriously ill people with other pathologies who did not go to the hospital for fear of contagion.
  5. Consequences derived from lockdown itself: increase of suicides, addiction, lack of care for the isolated elderly, physical deterioration due to lack of activity and walks in the open air, domestic violence, etc.
  6. Abandonment in old people’s residences due to denial of hospital care and negligence in care protocols: forced isolation and palliative sedation, predictably producing thousands of deaths.
  7. Dubious triage criteria and negligence in treatments: intubation, medications and sedation.[5]

Invasive mechanical ventilation or intubation is a medical treatment that provides oxygen to patients who cannot, or have serious trouble, breathing for themselves. It is a very invasive procedure that requires not only the sedation of patients through induced coma, but also their complete paralysis. The patients, while intubated, are unconscious or semi-conscious and some have described the experience as a living nightmare, probably because the body fights against intubation. The patients also suffer from serious physical deterioration as they may be bedridden for weeks!

After the SARS crisis in 2003, it was publicly admitted that the most common reason for intubation of a patient was the fear of SARS itself from the medical staff.[6] While patients are intubated, they have a “closed circuit”, it being impossible to expel any particle to the outside that could cause a contagion. This fear proved to be unfounded: a study conducted in Hong Kong showed a rate of four to five times higher mortality than in hospitals where this treatment was not performed.

It seems that this could also have happened during the COVID-19 crisis.

The mortality rate in patients intubated for a long period of time is high. A study in China showed that about 30 intubated patients died (97%) and a study carried out in New York shows the same percentage (97%) in patients over 65 years and 76% in children under this age.

The association between intubation and a series of effects known as Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia (VAP) and Ventilator-Associated Lung Injury (VALI) has been known for years. It is difficult to distinguish between these effects from those caused by pre-existing respiratory pathologies in patients with COVID-19.

Regarding the medications administered, there is no consensus on the treatment. They have tried [everything and anything] from antivirals to malaria treatments and even rheumatological treatments. “There are no proven therapies for the treatment of COVID-19. All indications have the potential for associated damage.”[7]

The specific triage criteria for admission to ICUs are not known.

There was unbalanced distribution of means and personnel. While IFEMA [massive field hospital in Madrid events venue] was announced to great fanfare (opened on March 22 and closed on May 1 with 17 deaths registered)[8] in other places, such as old people’s residences, there was a lack of personnel. Especially striking were the choreographed dancing and bingo games at IFEMA.

In short, there was improvisation and lack of coordination in the application of sanitary protocols.
