Important new serological studies on the global hotspots New York City and England have been added to the international Covid IFR overview (section 1.B).
Unsurprisingly, they found rather high values. Two studies on NYC report values between 0.7% and 1.1% based on confirmed cases and up to 1.45% including probable cases. One study on England reports an IFR in the general population of 0.9% and of 1.43% including care homes.
(Both New York and England moved patients into care homes. England reported 20,000 “Covid-related” deaths in care homes, New York (State) between 6500 and 13,000.)
As everywhere, mortality mostly affected the 70+ age group, and in the case of NYC, decreased by about 50% during the epidemic (as in Lombardy). IFRs below 45 years were

According to a study by research website Comparitech, most of the world’s most surveilled cities are located in China.
The country has been making headlines for its intense use of surveillance technology and, as Statista’s Katharina Buchholz details below, is featured heavily throughout the whole ranking that looked at the 150 most populous cities worldwide, excluding those for which insufficient data was available.
The Chinese city of Taiyuan, located in the Shanxi province roughly 300 miles Southwest of Beijing, tops the list with 120 public CCTV cameras per 1,000 inhabitants.

The highest-ranked non-Chinese city is London, also notorious for its strict surveillance of public spaces, with 67 cameras per 1,000 people, with Los Angeles the highest-ranked U.S. city in the ranking with 6 cameras per 1,000 inhabitants.
CCTV technology is controversial in many places around the world, with proponents touting its benefits for fighting crime and opponents cautious about surveillance’s potential to be used as a tool of public control and to violate privacy rights.
The makers of the survey said that they found little correlation between lower crime rates or a heightened feeling of security and surveillance in the cities surveyed.

One of the great impending disasters of the COVID crisis is that despite the fact that the Coronavirus is rapidly disappearing and its true Infection Fatality Rate is in the exact same range as the seasonal flu, politicians and government health officials seem determined to roll-out the globalist “New Normal” regime.
We’re continually told by health officials and the media that the primary reason for requiring face masks is to protect people from the COVID-19 airborne pathogen. There are numerous problems with this government belief system, not least of all because it assumes that every person is equally at risk of illness due to COVID-19, which is false.
The vast majority of the general population are not at risk at all, as it mainly only affects one specific demographic: over 70 years old with chronic long-term health conditions, and within that risk group the majority of complications and fatalities have been with nursing/care home residents (none of these people travel on public transport).
The other reason why this virus is not a threat to the wider population is because it is seasonal in nature; it has followed the exact same trajectory of decline in every country worldwide, and by now has all but extinguished itself in any significant form. But even beyond all of this, it has already been well-established by numerous scientific experts that masks are incapable of protecting people against this or any other respiratory virus.
This means that wearing them is more a psychological reinforcement rather than any real medical prophylactic.
The UK’s Daily Mail reports…
London Mayor Sadiq Khan said facemasks will be the ‘new normal’ for commuters in the capital for at least a year.
Protective face coverings are compulsory on public transport across England in a bid to keep coronavirus infection rates low and avoid a second wave of the deadly virus.
Free masks were handed out in their thousands on buses and trains in attempt to kick start the new laws on Monday as 3,000 more police took to the streets looking out for rule-breakers.

The Canary news website based in the United Kingdom recently obtained the declassification of British official documents relating to Venezuela. They disclose the existence, since January 2019, of a secret unit within Whitehall (the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office) in charge of planning first the destabilization and subsequently the reconstruction of the country.
Aready in December 2018 we reported that the United States was preparing a war of Latin American countries against Venezuela , then in April 2020, we revealed the existence of a coordination between the continent’s former colonial powers (Spain, France, Portugal, Netherlands, United Kingdom) under the US presidency to remove Venezuela’s constitutional president, Nicolas Maduro. 
The documents perused by The Canary attest to the UK’s stake in this project. Those who may eventually be put in power, such as Juan Guaido, can be counted on to promote the economic interests of the Crown to the detriment of their own population.
