When single mom Louise Hampton shared an impromptu Facebook "live" in August declaring the Covid-19 pandemic "a lot of shit", she didn't expect the video to go viral.
37-year-old Louise, who at the time was working as an NHS 111 health advisor for Care UK in Southall, west London, was furious at the five cases-minute chatter, filmed in the driver's seat of her car, angry: "Apparently I worked really hard during COVID … Do I have b ***** ks?"
She waved the certificate that had been presented to her for all of the work she had heard and said, “That's why this is a certificate from b ***** ks. Our service was dead! I did everything. & # 39;
In a new video, the former NHS worker filmed herself visiting the NHS A&E departments in London, claiming they were empty on a Friday night because people were "afraid to go to hospitals".
And in her first interview, she exclusively tells FEMAIL that doctors and nurses are making the crisis worse by “keeping quiet” and that the government has just “renamed the flu”.
Louise Hampton, a 111-year-old former worker, has claimed NHS staff who remain silent about the coronavirus are "part of the problem".

In her latest video, Louise shows the inside of an almost empty hospital A&E waiting room. She says it was recorded on a Friday night but didn't say when
The former call operator has shared many pictures that say "Resistance is a duty" and a conspiracy over a "new world order".
At the time of the release of her first video, a spokeswoman for Care UK responded to the video and said, “We are aware of this video which we consider to be materially inaccurate in many ways and we can confirm that it is an employee of an investigation.
& # 39; We expect all of our colleagues and ministries to support the work of the NHS to provide the public with the correct information and support during the pandemic.
& # 39; Our call centers were indeed exceptionally busy, handling a peak of 400% more calls than usual.
"Our teams have shown great dedication and dedication to delivering the service and we have rightly thanked them for the efforts they have made."
Are hospitals at risk of being overwhelmed?
Government statistics released last week showed that 82 percent of ICU beds in Manchester were occupied, mostly with Covid-19 patients.
The Ministry of Health warned that NHS services would soon be "overwhelmed" by cases.
In Liverpool, city councils have warned that the NHS intensive care units have reached 95 percent of their bed capacity.
It is difficult to clarify these statements as the government does not publish these data.
The 82 percent figure in Manchester may sound alarming, but at the same time in 2019, 83 percent of ICU beds in the region were occupied.
Nationwide, there are currently less than half the people in UK hospitals with Covid-19 than at the height of the April pandemic, and hospitals weren't overwhelmed at the time.
Hospital admissions fell as much as 90 percent for some of the deadliest conditions and diseases during the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic.
While telling the British to "stay home, protect the NHS, save lives" – a message used at the height of the April lockdown to keep households from shuffling – the number of heart attack screenings fell almost half.
Heart disease, a leading cause of heart attacks, is the leading cause of death in the UK. In the meantime, consultations on the most common types of cancer have also decreased by up to two thirds.
The numbers that came from analyzing the data published today in the Daily Telegraph have been described by experts as "mind-boggling". Some of them warn that the UK could see 35,000 more cancer deaths as a result of the pandemic within a year.
Others have warned the government "needs to get the news right," urging those in need of medical treatment to speak to their doctor.
The study by health analyst Dr. Foster reveals that in April and May, the peak of the UK's first wave of coronavirus, approvals related to a number of diseases fell sharply.
The number of admissions for colon cancer, the UK's second largest cancer killer, fell 39 percent. Ordinarily 13,488 cases would have been expected, but there were 8,185 cases.
Intake of prostate cancer, the most common cancer in men, also fell sharply.
The decline came while the government's first "stay a government home, protect the NHS, save lives" was taking place
With a five-year average, around 12,850 cases would have been expected. However, the number fell 64 percent to 4,640.
The intake of breast cancer, the most common cancer in women, also decreased by a third.
The largest decrease was in gastrointestinal disease admissions, which decreased by 90 percent.
The decline came while the government's first "stay a government home, protect the NHS, save lives" was taking place.
The slogan was announced when the country implemented a national lockdown in March to encourage people to abide by the rules, which originally included a ban on mixing households while allowing people to only leave their homes for essential travel.
The message was later changed to "Stay Alert, Control Virus, Save Lives" when the government began to relax restrictions.
Within hours of its release, the video was seen by over 30,000 people.
Before it was shut down by Facebook for violating community standards, it had received over a million views and tens of thousands of shares.
"I was amazed at how quickly it went viral," says Louise, who lives in Boris Johnson's Uxbridge constituency.
“When I made the video, I was really angry that I got this certificate because I fucking did everything.
“Not just me, but all of the other NHS staff, many of whom had been sitting around rolling their thumbs and making TikTok dance videos since March.
“You certainly don't deserve an award – and neither do I.
"Those first four months of the 'so-called pandemic' were the quietest I've ever known."
When Louise's bosses got wind of her newfound notoriety, they weren't happy.
“I knew before they signed me that I was going to be fired for the video, but until then I didn't care. I didn't want to work for an institution that lies to the public.
“I didn't want to be involved in the greatest fraud that has ever been imposed on mankind. Before they had a chance to fire me, I stepped back. & # 39;
After she sent her resignation email on September 2nd, her bosses said they would have fired her for "gross misconduct" if she hadn't resigned.
“I was sad to have lost my job, but I couldn't go on lying. So many NHS staff keep silent about what is really going on and that makes them part of the problem.
“I know it's not easy, but more of them need to speak up. This situation will never end otherwise. & # 39;
Since then, Louise has spent all of her free time trying to figure out what she thinks is the truth about the pandemic.
"I don't rely on hearsay," she insists. “I get messages from NHS staff, mostly nurses, that their hospitals have been empty and that they don't believe this pandemic is as bad as the government makes it out to be.
“I can't say for sure if there's a virus or not – I'm not a doctor or a virologist – but the facts are visible to everyone.
& # 39; The Covid virus has never been isolated, the PCR tests are known to be inefficient and give a large number of false positives, and hospitals appear to be pretty empty.
& # 39; Flu statistics show that the flu is almost gone.
“It seems to me you just renamed the flu and called it Covid 19.
& # 39; People's freedoms are being undermined; Companies, jobs and livelihoods are destroyed; Cancer patients are not treated and therefore die; elderly people are alone, banned from visitors, and banned from leaving care homes that have become their prisons; and all for a virus with a survival rate of over 99 percent.
"The public needs answers and I am determined to find them."
Last Friday she posted a video on her Facebook page mentioning government and media claims about hospital admissions.
In the video, she claims that many of her friends from nurses and NHS staff told her that the hospitals they work in were "pretty empty" during the pandemic.
After hearing this, Louise decided to check out the A&E departments in two London hospitals.
"I just want to get a real picture," she says as she films herself walking down a lighted street in Gerrards Cross.
"The media tells us that our hospitals are overcrowded with patients, so I'll check for myself."
She also urges her 3,000 followers to send in any material they may have from other empty hospitals.
"We have to stop the lies," she adds. “We need to know what's going on. Together we can do it. & # 39;
The video then skips to the evening when Louise arrives at the A&E department of Ealing Hospital.
She later visits Hillingdon Hospital. No hospital is busy, just a few people in the waiting areas and a staff or two are spotted as she wanders through unusually empty corridors.
"Ealing and Hillingdon are two huge boroughs in London," she says from her sofa as soon as she gets home.
“Hillingdon is London's second largest district. So you'd have thought both hospitals would have been crammed full, especially on a Friday night in A&E.
“At the moment, of course, all pubs are closed and there are no sporting events. So you don't get drunk or sports injuries, but we are in the middle of a massive global pandemic thought there were some very sick people around … & # 39;
She wonders aloud where all the other patients are … people who have suffered heart attacks, strokes, burns, sprains and other illnesses and injuries.
When I visited Ealing Hospital at 9:00 p.m. on Friday night, there were a handful of people there.
In Hillingdon around 10 p.m. there were two people in A&E. Only two people … And the hospital was incredibly quiet. What the hell is going on Where are all the sick? & # 39;
Louise often shared selfies on a train where she ignored and wore no mask or protective face coverings

Since going viral earlier this year, the mother of two now has a public Facebook page that shares pictures of protests
“Louise realizes that the majority of the public is too scared to go to the hospital.
"The government and the media did a good job scare the people," says Louise.
London was hit the hardest and suffered the most during the first wave. At the beginning of April there were almost 5,000 Covid-19 patients in the capital's hospitals. Now official data show significant spare capacity in NHS hospitals.
There are currently 1,489 virus patients in London hospitals – less than a third of the levels seen in the spring. Of these, 253 are on ventilators, compared to a high of 1,046 on April 13.
She further admits that Covid-19 patients do not go through A&E.
"When I worked for NHS 111 people had clear symptoms of heart attack or stroke and I told them I would arrange an ambulance for them if they had to go to A&E and they would say, 'I'm not I'm going to A & E because I don't want to catch Covid. & # 39;
& # 39; The government put fear of God into them. People now think if they go to the hospital they will get infected with a deadly virus. & # 39;
She is concerned that those who do not seek treatment may need urgent treatment, that many will die needlessly at home.
It's not just hospitals she's checking out – she's also filmed videos of empty test sites and a very dreary looking Heathrow airport.
Most of their videos on their personal Facebook timeline, but others on the Certificateofbollox page.
She can also be seen at protests – most recently in Bristol – where she was seen and filmed on the street without a mask, with an oversized purse in one hand and a mini megaphone in the other.
"We disagree" and "We are the people, we are the power, we are the 99 percent" are just two of her regular battle cries as she and other "Mama Bear Warriors" try to stand up against the government and fight for the return and protection of our human rights and freedoms.
The former Care UK employee recorded a video criticizing a certificate she received and thanked her for making a difference to patients in the virus outbreak
Ms. Hampton previously had a backlash for comparing the government to Nazi Germany. She has made a number of online posts about the virus using the hashtags # Covid1984, #NWO, #SaveOurChildren, #Plandemic and #WeWillNotBeMuzzled. The hashtags have been widely used by those who believe the coronavirus is part of a conspiracy to establish a New World Order (NWO) and impose authoritarian measures similar to a permanent lockdown. Ms. Hampton also posted a meme that read, "If you ever wondered if you complied with Germany in the 1930s, now you know."
"I've been to two rallies in Trafalgar Square and many smaller rallies in London," she says.
"My kids are in school full-time so I do my activism during the week during school hours and on Saturdays when they stay with their father."
It hasn't been easy for her since she made the fateful video. Losing her job was bad enough, but she has also lost friends and family because of her actions and beliefs.
"Some of my friends who believe the virus is deadly have stopped talking to me," she admits.
“I have two old friends who believe that something unpleasant is going on and they stand by me.
The former 111-year-old employee also announced that she believes the coronavirus has been renamed "flu". Covid-19 killed three times as many people as influenza and pneumonia this year, official data from October showed.
The UK recorded an additional 12,155 coronavirus cases yesterday, a 34 percent decrease from last Sunday's total
“My family stopped talking to me because they believe in the killer virus and think I'm selfish if I think differently.
“They also think that I'm somehow spreading the virus. How can I spread a virus that I don't have and that may not even exist? I wish they would open their eyes and question the government narrative. I am 37 years old and I am entitled to my own thoughts and opinions. If you can't accept that, that's your problem. & # 39;
Despite her losses, Louise will not give up.
“I went to a protest last Saturday and will be attending the protest in Kings Cross this Saturday (November 28th) and in Newport, Wales in early December.
"This is my job now – one of the most important things I've ever done – and I won't stop until the truth comes out."
