The 45-year-old Scottish nurse is suspended for spreading Covid conspiracy theories


An NHS nurse has been suspended for spreading Covid conspiracy theories, including face masks helping spread the virus and likening vaccines to "genocide."

Colleagues reported Tracey McCallum to the chiefs of Crosshouse Hospital in Ayrshire, Scotland, after classifying the outbreak as a "fraud".

The 45-year-old from Darvel was also reported to the Nursing and Midwifery Council after telling people that vitamins and minerals could fight off the disease.

It comes as a membership for an & # 39; Anti-Vaxxer & # 39; NHS group that has the Pfizer push with & # 39; Poison & # 39; compared, which was doubled overnight.

Matt Hancock announced last night that the UK had received five million doses of Moderna's vaccine after British officials tried to close a last-minute deal with the US company.

In the meantime, a right-wing extremist group has called for a "violent uprising" against companies working on a Covid attack in Germany.

In a post on her Facebook attributed to the Polish author Monika Wisniewska, it says:

In a post on her Facebook, attributed to the Polish author Monika Wisniewska, it says: "The vaccine should first be tested on politicians."

Ms. McCallum, who has worked for the NHS for 20 years, was suspended earlier this month after being sick with work-related stress for weeks.

But she said she spent hours doing her own research and divided it into foster groups.

The bizarre news added, “If they survive, the vaccine is safe. If not, the country is safe. & # 39;

One of her comments on the Daily Record reads: “NO PRIMARY CARE.

“It will increase hospital admissions and deaths, and keep this fraud forever.

& # 39; Management everywhere are bullies and control us. It's all a game to see who can be the most sadistic. & # 39;

Another post claimed, "I think the NHS is just as corrupt as the government."

Another added, “More people have been awakening from the lie since birth. Tyranny! Genocide! Treason!

"The world will get better and brighter when we all move away from the dark side."

Ms. McCallum has since stood by her comments, claiming she was targeted by Top Brass for asking "too many questions".

The nurse also supports Donald Trump's claim that hydroxychloroquine is the way to fight the virus, though experts fear it could have dangerous side effects.

She claimed, “There are 170 peer reviews that say they got really good results with hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and vitamins C and D because our immune systems are amazing things.

& # 39; The drug is for malaria, but when it works, it works. I'd rather try this – something that has been around for years and that is a good drug for many things – than try a vaccine. I'm not a guinea pig for that. & # 39;

Ms. McCallum doubled in on her genocidal comment that saw her being removed from a 34,000-person group chat called Nurses Roar.

She claimed nurses were tricked into treating people with drugs during the war and the Holocaust, and claimed there were "many dire side effects".

NHS workers seem to flock to anti-Vaxxer groups on social media, one of which doubles up overnight.

NHS Workers for Choice, No Vaccine Rejection Restrictions, rose from 250 members to more than 500 yesterday.

Reports in the group have likened the Pfizer shock to "poison," opposed wearing masks, and argued against testing in hospitals.

The group is said to include Sheffield-based general practitioner Julie Coffey, who has stated she will not wear masks in stores – A&E nurses, medical assistants and laboratory technicians.

However, it has been put on a warning label telling people to visit the NHS website for advice on vaccinations.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock yesterday classified the group's message as "totally inappropriate".

The private Facebook page claims it was not started as an anti-Vaxxer movement, but was instead designed to help healthcare workers.

However, a probe found that the Pfizer vaccine, which had the first positive results from its clinical trial, was "poison" and a frozen virus waiting to be "released."

The group was formed on October 4th as "NHS staff to choose, not a restriction of not wanting a vaccine."

But it changed its name to "NHS workers to choose from, no restrictions on rejecting a vaccine" that same day.

The admins are listed as William Steed, Linda Rose, Heather Atkinson, and Aurora Cavarra.

NHS Workers for Choice, No Restrictions on Rejecting a Vaccine, are also against testing in hospitals and have seen membership surge over the past month

The group was formed on October 4th as "NHS staff to choose, not a restriction of not wanting a vaccine."

The site is described as: "A dedicated group for medical professionals etc. to collectively keep freedom of choice as an option and not be hampered by restrictions."

A family doctor practice that is part of the group said she would prefer to leave her job than help with the administration of a vaccine.

On the subject of healthcare workers being the first to get a stab, the Times wrote that one member wrote, "NHS workers are gone – all sick and old will be gone."

They added: 'NHS gone. Population under reconstruction. Welcome to the new world order. & # 39;

Health Secretary Matt Hancock yesterday morning rated the group's message as "totally inappropriate".

He told Times Radio: “It is totally inappropriate to oppose vaccinations that have been strictly safeguarded.

“And I wouldn't advise anyone because we don't propose or allow vaccines in this country unless they meet some of the toughest safety requirements in the world.

“Getting a vaccine – be it against the flu or, hopefully, against the coronavirus – not only protects you, but also the people around you. So it's a really important step. & # 39;

He added at the BBC breakfast that the UK is working closely with Pfizer to roll out the vaccine from early December.

Mr Hancock said the UK was ready to use the push "as soon as it comes".

He told BBC Breakfast: "We will be ready by December 1st … but more likely we can possibly start the rollout before Christmas."

When asked how many vaccines the UK would need, he said it would depend on how effective they are at preventing transmission.

Jeremy Corbyn's brother, a Sheffield-based general practitioner and a suspended nurse whose own son has distanced himself from her: anti-Vaxxers sowing doubts about a Covid jab

Sheffield-based doctor Julie Coffey has claimed that vaccines for the virus prioritize speed over safety.

The general practitioner who works for Dovercourt Medical Practice wrote on her website, “Although I am a conventionally trained medical practitioner and work as a general practitioner, I love the natural health work that I am now involved in.

"It is extremely gratifying to help people achieve better health naturally, which sometimes allows them to throw away their pills."

She has also reposted claims made by anti-Vaxxer groups on social media, saying that she avoids using face covering in stores despite government guidelines.

Ms. Coffey shared a video claiming that Wuhan has seen more Covid-19 deaths than other parts of China because of people being tested for a Sars vaccine there.

Jeremy Corbyn's brother, a Sheffield-based general practitioner and a suspended nurse are among those who sow doubts about vaccines.

Piers, the elder brother of the former Labor leader, was arrested five times during the coronavirus pandemic, which he describes as a "planemic".

The 73-year-old claims Covid-19 was a joke and the founder of a group called No New Normal.

He is close to conspiracy theorist David Icke, a footballer who believes global events are decided by reptiles.

They have performed on anti-lockdown marches and have spoken on stage in Trafalgar Square in central London.

Piers told the Times, “This vaccine is experimental and vaccine manufacturers are not responsible for illness or death.

& # 39; The whole thing is one of the main motivations of the new world order (a conspiracy theory that suspects a secret totalitarian world government).

The mother of four, Kate Shemirani, a 35-year-old former nurse, firmly believes the coronavirus is a hoax and claims that its symptoms are related to the introduction of 5G.

She has argued that the vaccine is a political tool to gain access to and alter people's DNA, compared the lockdown to the Holocaust, and insisted that NHS dancing nurses "stand trial for genocide."

She's headlined anti-lockdown rallies after joining conspiracy theorists David Icke and Piers Corbyn in a protest in August.

She directed Yobs to face riot police, who they referred to as "dirty dogs" and made fun of wearing face masks at a rally in September.

Her 21-year-old son Sebastian said he was concerned about the public health impact his mother's claims could have and described them as "dangerous" and "attention grabbing".

Consultative surgeon Muhammad Iqbal Adil from Locum was suspended from the GMC for 12 months in July for posting videos about the coronavirus online.

The 61-year-old dismissed Covid as a "joke" and said in a YouTube video that has since been removed that a vaccine could be combined with electrical components to monitor the world's population.

David Icke is the infamous conspiracy theorist who often makes the headlines for his controversial comments.

Born in 1952, the 68-year-old former professional footballer has written more than 20 books and tried his hand at pandemic and sports reporting once.

In 1991, he appeared on Sir Terry Wogan's TV chat show, declaring himself the Son of God in a now infamous clip he calls the "defining moment".

From here he began to write his books and make bold predictions, including that the world would end in 1997.

Other bizarre claims he's made are that the royal family are lizards.

Icke also believes that an interdimensional race of reptilian beings called archons hijacked Earth, preventing humanity from reaching their true potential.

The 68-year-old has said that the universe is made up of "vibrational energy" and is made up of an infinite number of dimensions that share the same space, just like television and radio frequencies, and that some people can tune their consciousness to other wavelengths.

Most recently, he suggested that the coronavirus is connected to the 5G cellular network, a claim that has never been confirmed by science.

Pfizer and BioNTech announced the first results of a massive clinical study last week that found nine out of ten people who received their sting would be protected from it.

Britain could get 10 million cans by Christmas – enough for five million Britons – and experts raising expectations that life could be "normal" again by spring.

Mr Hancock announced last night that the UK had received five million doses of Moderna's vaccine after British officials tried to close a last-minute deal with the US company.

However, the sting, which has been shown to be 94.5 percent effective at preventing people from becoming infected with Covid-19, must be done in two steps.

This means that the five million doses bought will only vaccinate two and a half million Britons.

Speaking at a press conference in Downing Street, Hancock said the vaccine won't be available in the UK until next spring as the Massachusetts-based company needs to drastically expand its supply chain.

But Americans are likely to get their hands on 20 million cans before the New Year.

The government did not order Moderna's pile at the same time as Pfizers, although it was cheaper and easier to store.

This meant the UK was down when the company announced its first results yesterday morning.

Mr Hancock dodged questions about why the UK hadn't pre-purchased Moderna's vaccine and insisted that it was "really good news" that No10 had managed to get one.

Moderna is the second high profile company to confirm interim clinical trial results of its coronavirus vaccine, claiming the sting is nearly 95 percent effective

Despite a number of advances in vaccine research, the anti-Vax movement appears to be gaining momentum.

A right-wing extremist group has called for a "violent uprising" against companies working on a Covid attack in Germany.

Forke und Schaufel or Fork and Shovel were formed earlier this year to protect against lockdowns and other coronavirus restrictions.

A demonstration is expected to take place in front of BioNTech's headquarters in Mainz on November 28th.

The "Corona rebel" group railed against vaccines and allegedly has links to the right in Germany, according to Vice.

During a protest by the movement on September 26, the Baden-Württemberg MP Stefan Räpple spoke out against the government.

He said, “We have to overthrow the government and do it by force. It doesn't work non-violently. & # 39;

He was released from the AfD and is being investigated by a public prosecutor.

The FaS website states, “Today we know that it is a United Nations plan to establish a new world order.

“With all their might and vigor, the mighty of this world are carrying out this plan, which has been developed over decades.

"Let us make it clear to these traitors that we are (ready) to defend ourselves by all means."

Six competitors in the race

BIONTECH / PFIZER

This is the first coronavirus vaccine shown to work. In a study of more than 43,000 people, it was found to be 90 percent effective.

There are some concerns about the two-dose burst as it largely needs to be kept in an ultra-cold store at around minus 70 ° C.

However, the interim results suggest that it is one of the most successful vaccines ever developed. It uses genetic code in a droplet of fat to tell the body to make the coronavirus spike protein, which causes the body's immune system to make antibodies.

Ugur Sahin and his wife Oezlem are the brains behind the vaccine, and the German couple BioNTech are developing it together with the US pharmaceutical giant Pfizer. The UK is promised 10 million cans by the end of the year and 30 million next year. So far only hundreds of thousands have been produced.

OXFORD UNIVERSITY / ASTRAZENECA

The results of this vaccine are hoped for this week. Up to 100 million doses have been promised in the UK and 13,000 UK volunteers have participated in global studies.

The vaccine uses a deactivated chimpanzee cold virus that contains genetic code that causes cells to produce the spike protein on the outside of the coronavirus so the body can recognize it and fight it off.

JANSSEN

An international study of 30,000 people, including 6,000 in the UK, begins today to measure the effectiveness of two doses of vaccine. It works like the Oxford vaccine, but uses a cold virus to provide the genetic code that causes cells to produce the coronavirus spike protein.

NOVAVAX VACCINE

The vaccine from the US biotech company Novavax was tested in a British study in September and has so far recruited 10,000 people.

The vaccine contains a synthesized copy of the coronavirus spike protein and a "booster" to increase the immune response. The UK is promised 60 million doses, which are hoped to be available by mid-2021.

VALNEVA

This is a traditional vaccine as opposed to BioNtech's more innovative design. The immune system is sure to be exposed to an inactivated version of the coronavirus.

Up to 190 million doses are promised in the UK, although it has not yet been tested in humans. Up to 100 million of these are to be produced in the company's factories in Livingston, near Edinburgh. It is unlikely to be available until the end of next year.

GSK / SANOFI

British drug giant GlaxoSmithKline has reportedly made millions of doses of a "booster" for three vaccines.

The company offers its adjuvant technology and has partnered with Sanofi, Medicago and Clover Pharmaceuticals. The first results on whether any of the three traditional protein-based vaccines will work are expected in the first half of next year.
