In regard to Deaths per Million, it is NUMBER 11 on World Rankings (Total = 100) – In regard to Tests per Million, it is NUMBER 2 on World Rankings
In Total — Gibraltar has had 7,900 cases which is 24 % of the population and 100 deaths attributed to Covid which is 0.3 % of population. CASES = 24 % DEATHS (attributed to Covid) = 0.3 % of Population
THE DIAMOND PRINCESS DID NOTHING
The cruise ship was isolated in Japan while they just waited until viral collapse occurred. The Japanese were criticised for leaving the ship to its fate with effectively zero. Total Cases = 712 Deaths 13 Total on Board = 3,711 (inc Passengers and Crew) CASES = 19 % DEATHS (attributed to Covid) = 0.35 % of Population
So, the Diamond Princess outcome where mostly elderly people were trapped in a cruise ship was almost EXACTLY the same as Gibraltar — a military base where there is great discipline and control of the population usingPublic Health interventions.
The conclusions we can reach from this comparison are clear. Public Health measures did almost nothing to prevent the outcomes of the virus. But worse still, Public Health measures may have caused huge amounts of morbidity and mortality from delayed presentations and delayed diagnoses, from psychological impacts, from economic impacts, from vaccine adverse events.

THE GROWTH OF INTOLERANCE
“We’ve arranged a global civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology. We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.” Carl Sagan
There is a steady growth of intolerance in the advanced economies especially amongst the fearful who are terrified of the “Covid Threat”. They are convinced that their virtue is for everyone’s benefit and they are completely convinced that their views are correct. Thus, there is a steady growth of their virtue combined with the strong expression of their views. Unfortunately, this devolves to intolerance if you will not listen or be easily convinced.
The Fearful claim that they “follow the science”. However, they (mostly) have no idea what the scientific process is. They have reduced it to a religion — a religion that worships authority. If anyone is fearful, their tendency to be suggestible increases via the generation of alpha brain waves. Initially, this makes them just more likely to follow suggestions but then their thought leaders slowly transform their message into “Believe ….. or Else” (!).
Presumably the High Priests of Covid Fear are Anthony Fauci who appears to pretend being a scientist when he is, in fact, an unelected public servant and Tedros Ghebreyesus, the head of the World Health Organization who has always worked in “public health” and is thus also an unelected public servant.
Or perhaps the Ultimate High Priest of Covid Fear is, a man with no scientific or medical background whatsoever. None of these priests have ever been elected to a position to represent The People. None of them have any significant personal experience in diagnosing and treating illness in sick patients. However, they are now telling the Global Fearful what to do in response to the perceived medical threat.
