Scotland’s Covid-19 Up-to-Date Figures Suggest Lockdown Should End – Now!…

From Scottish Government Website Daily Update For Coronavirus…   Scottish numbers: 1 June 2020

Of the people who have tested positive:

3,695 inpatients have been discharged from hospital since 5 March

735 were in hospital last night:

20 of whom were in intensive care, with another 7 with suspected COVID-19 in intensive care

2,363 have died   Source


Scotland’s population is approximately 5.4 million so, lamentable as are the above recorded deaths from Covid-19, we’re hardly looking at a deadly plague. Yet, the application of the severe lockdown restrictions, with all the consequences to come, are set to continue in some form, with the First Minister threatening a return to the strict regime if the newly introduced  relaxation leads to, well, the population being relaxed and returning to “normal” everyday life.  People continue to monitor neighbours (I heard a horror story of someone I know myself and regarded as a friend snitching on people she thinks are not keeping to the rules – because she’s terrified of catching the virus) and there are plenty of people calling for the restrictions to continue because they fear a second wave or just don’t want to return to work. Whatever. 

What’s going on?  Don’t the above figures show, really, no cause for concern?  Should we be returning to normal life – not the “new normal”, the real normal – immediately, if not sooner?   

Why are not the church authorities, the Scottish Bishops and priests pastorally responsible for providing traditional Masses, not insisting that the churches re-open, as has happened in other parts of the world. Or are they to be counted among those who simply don’t want to return to work?   The above figures speak for themselves.  So, what, I repeat, is going on?

  1. This is an exercise in power and control. The threat by the First Minister to introduce laws making it illegal to travel more than a certain distance decided by her makes this abundantly clear.
    If such a law is introduced I will not be prepared to co-operate and I may as well hand myself in at a police station.
    This is why the population have been disarmed.

    • Antoine Bisset,

      There are some Scots who call our First Minister Nicola Stalin and it’s not difficult to guess why.

      Actually, that’s a very good idea – hand ourselves into the police saying we won’t keep that restriction. I saw a headline this morning (but didn’t follow it through) saying the police are saying these restrictions are unenforceable. So, arguably, if you and I go handing ourselves in, we might get locked up due to not keeping lockdown and admitting it 😀 They’d at least be able to say they’d made a couple of arrests…

      We’ll think that over again, no point in acting too quickly, must exercise the virtue of prudence, etc… 😀

  2. Editor,

    When I visited your fair country in 2008, I was surprised to observe the extent to which socialism had made inroads into Scottish society. I was actually more than surprised – disturbed would be more accurate – that the Scots, the land of Sir William Wallace and Robert the Bruce, had allowed this dripping poison into their veins.

    So what’s going on, I suspect, is your socialist bureaucracy both perpetuating itself and seeking to gain even more power over your lives through this scam-demic.

    That said, some remarks are in order concerning the government website to which you’ve linked:

    1. The virus tests are known to register 80% false positives, so any numbers published by the government and/or your NHS are meaningless. Your government even admits as much, if you read this statement carefully:

    “This will be an underestimate of the number of cases. Not everyone with the virus will display symptoms and not all those with symptoms will be tested.”

    This would be akin to something like “Not every teen-ager has acne, and not everyone who has acne is a teen-ager, therefore the number of acne cases is underestimated.”

    2. Your government can’t even get its numbers straight. As of June 1, you are told, “A total of 115,259 people in Scotland have been tested through NHS labs to date.” However, if you scroll down the page below the Health Board table, you will find this:

    “On 31 May there were:

    2,096 tests carried out by NHS Scotland in hospitals, care homes or the community, making a total of 171,745 COVID-19 tests through NHS labs to date.”

    So between May 31 and today, 56,486 people disappeared into the twilight zone. Maybe they took their tests back and got a refund….

    3. If your NHS is using the same devious tactic as our CDC, then any death due to any cause, which also happened to test positive (and likely 80% wrongly) for the virus, is counted as a virus death. In other words, you are being lied to every which way from Sunday about the number of virus deaths.

    4. Finally, here’s another doozy: “As at [sic] 26 May, we have been notified by Health Boards or the Care Inspectorate of 7 deaths of healthcare workers and 11 deaths of social care workers, related to COVID-19. We are not able to confirm how many of these staff contracted COVID-19 through their work. We update this information every Wednesday.”

    Translation: we want to scare you with as many deaths as possible, even though we have no idea what caused those deaths. We will update our latest lies and half truths every Wednesday.”

    In short, as we’ve already pointed out countless times here, you Scots are being had.

    • RCA Victor,

      That’s one of the best comments I’ve ever read from you. Apart from those that begin “I agree with editor…” 😀

      Seriously – on the button, as ever…

      • Dear Editor,
        It should be pointed out that Scotland has not had one – zero, zilch, nada, – deaths from flu since the beginning of March.
        This is quite remarkable since by this time , the end of the flu season, the number is usually in the thousands. Every fatality is due to the Wuhan Flu.
        But I notice in Dr RCAvictor’s homeland, at least 7 persons who were found with fatal gunshot wounds in Chicago, all died of the Wuhan Flu.
        Clever so and so’s those Chinese.

        Editor: not to give our enemies the opportunity to play the “racist” card, by “Chinese” you mean the Chinese Government. As far as I know, the hate speech laws don’t apply to commonplace political commentary -yet…

  3. I think the number of Covid-19 (suspected, not proven) represents around 0.04% of the population. Proof positive, if more proof were needed, that Covid-19 is a geopolitical scam.

  4. I think Fr Isaac Mary Relyea answers some questions on this ‘hoax’ on a YOUTUBE clip (link below).

    The Editor’s introduction mentions that ‘the figurers speak for themselves’ and when we look at these figures, it appears the virus kills no more than a bad flu virus. Yet the more Dr Fauci, Prof Ferguson & Co are exposed as liars, the more our governments impose restrictions by stealth. For example the ‘lockdown’ here in England has supposedly eased, but at the same time the money invested by Boris and governments around the world in ‘contact tracing’ is enormous and this should tell us everything. Its all about total control of the populations (communism). There is a ‘new normal,’ in other words a ‘New World Order.’


    • Francescomarta,

      That’s what strikes me all the time: the more we discover about this whole scam, the more dictatorial the Governments of the UK become.

      In a supermarket earlier today, I came face to MASK with an elderly gentleman who was wearing a black mask, along the lines of the picture below (although not quite as big and his was black.) The picture below is the closest I could find to the one he was wearing. I had to turn away quickly so that he wouldn’t see my amusement. How terrible to be so terrified, she said, with perfect alliteration, and all for no good reason. Unless, of course, he’s got umpteen underlying conditions and is really old – but then again, remember that at least two people over 100 have survived and been applauded as they exited their respective hospitals by the proud NHS staff who had nursed them back to health. In any event, the way he was nipping up and down those aisles and filling his trolley with this, that, and the other, it looked like he’s expecting to last a good bit longer, virus or no virus.

      • Dear Editor,
        Whilst my beloved and I were out on parole this morning on an extensive permutation, I notice ‘someone’ called my name in vain.
        Well if I may be so bold, I think you should stick with the Haiku. It is a simple three line 5/7/5 syllable style, and it does not normally rhyme
        For instance :-

        Trump is a lantern
        Shining light in dark corners
        Chasing rats away.

        Then there is this

        Do not decline to draw the line
        Through those parts which are semantic,
        Keep it tight and you’ll get it right
        And avoid being too pedantic;
        Do what you can to make it scan
        Then turn the many into few,
        Be a poet before you know it
        By giving every line its due.

        Now where is that American Doctor RCAVictor?

        Did you see how President Trump threw the fake media into paroxysms by walking across from the White House to the vandalised Protestant Church with his entourage.The Marxists went spare at his audacity!
        Then the real icing on the cake is when the woman Bishop (I think she is called Mrs Oxymoron) went on one of the fake tv stations berating the President of the United States for not getting her permission to have his photo taken outside “her” church. Presumably she gave permission for the Satanists to set it on fire a few nights ago.
        On the subject of this Chinese Flu and this house arrest here in Scotland.
        I noticed that there has not been one recorded death from normal winter flu since March. It is wonderful to know that winter flu’s which have decimated the older populations since for ever, has finally disappeared.
        Every premature death is now due to the Wuhan Flu.
        Last week end saw the usual slaughter in Chicago due to gun violence usually black on black.
        In one instance seven fatalities with gunshot wounds were attributed to – Wuhan Flu.
        So yes this is the biggest con trick in recent times and will go down in history as the greatest fraud this century equal only to global warming.
        This is the last throw of the dice for the Demoncrats to eliminate President Trump who is our last chance, apart from the Virgin Mary, to hand the world to satan.

  5. Here’s one of Churchill’s many quotes about socialism:

    “Socialism would gather all power to the supreme party and party leaders, rising like stately pinnacles above their vast bureaucracies of civil servants no longer servants, no longer civil.”

    • RCA Victor,

      I feel obliged to return the compliment with a quote (from me, humble as ever) about your political landscape over there in the US of A…

      Donald Trump, one of the world’s most important men,
      Is loved by all, except the nuts over at CNN
      He loves Scotland’s fair land
      Although the SNP want him banned
      But we love him at Catholic Truth so he’s got nothing to worry about 😀

      Not bad for an amateur, I believe I heard you say… 😀

      • Editor,

        You mean you can hear me clear across the pond? You’d better watch out: Patrick Healy will be here in a flash for some poetic one-up-manship.

        I feel obliged, speaking of obligations, to point out that our beloved President is in fact half Scottish, his mother being Mary Anne McLeod. His father was a German…so which half accounts for his fearlessness? And which half accounts for his orange hair?

        • RCAVictor, Editor and Patrick Healy

          What about this:

          The U.S. in slump until it got Trump, now it’s alive and the swamp can’t survive. It’s creatures have tried every trick in the book to get rid of Donald and put in a crook. By fake charge and anarchy, even a plague, he still stands so strong while Biden stays vague. November is when the people decide, if they choose Trump again then there’s nowhere to hide. The swamp will be drained of the Communist beast and all reds will tremble with fear in the East. China will fade as the globalist dream turns into a nightmare for Lucifer’s team.

          • Athanasius,

            I’d say that is worth at least several extra zeroes in your paycheck – but if Editor won’t loosen the purse-strings you can have a few of my extra ones….

            Speaking of the globalist dream, I’ve been wondering what might happen next if the Kung Flu scam-demic fails to subdue the West, and if the Soros-funded riots fail to bring down Trump and America.

            I’m betting their next gambit is war. That seems to be the constant last page in their playbook.

            • RCAVictor

              All out global war is beyond these people. Remember the words of Lenin: “We need a world war to establish Communism in Russia, another to establish it in Europe and a third to establish it globally.”

          • Great,
            Can this ‘pathetic’ poet attend your English apprehension class when the skools are open agin?

            Why is that Americano on a higher pay grade than us?
            It’s favouritism (or favouritism) think me.

      • Editor,

        I see my prediction of 12:42 am has come true about the peripatetic poetic blogger whose name I took in vain. How did I make this successful prophecy? Simple:

        • Yes, I laughed when I saw Patrick’s poem in the moderation folder – don’t ask. WordPress moodswings again 😀 Patrick, you will not be surprised to learn, is totally innocent of all crimes!

        • Dear Editor,

          I take deception to being called a pathetic poet!

          Over at there are a couple of articles which sums up the depths of depravity to which the American Hierarchy have descended.
          One is the Marxist cardinal Cupich in Chicago prohibiting communion on the tongue, the other is the Arch bishop of D C castigating President Trump and the first lady who are shown kneeling in prayer at the shrine of Saint Pope JP 2.
          Meanwhile the pretend Catholic Joe Biden has been photographed genuflecting in honour of the coup plotters against the President, in some protestant church.
          A protestant President kneeling in a Catholic Church
          And Catholic wannabe genuflecting in a Protestant church.
          Then throw in the Marxist bishop of San Diego and you have a prile of them
          Our Holy Father sure can pick ’em

          As our esteemed Editor is wont to say ‘ up this stuff you could not make’

          • Patrick Healy,

            Something else “our esteemed Editor is won’t to say” is she never calls John Paul II “saint” – just “Pope” – I remember because some of us took a while to reflect on her claim that he’s also one of the worst popes in history. I now see that if he’d done the job properly, we wouldn’t have Pope Francis! Just thought I’d warn you to duck for cover, LOL!

          • Patrick Healy,

            I’ve been seriously tempted to write a pointed note to the Abp. of Atlanta regarding his disgraceful words and actions, but I might need several cold showers first, in order to avoid having to go to Confession afterwards…

  6. RCA Victor’s Churchill’s quote regarding socialism, paraphrases the words of Fr Isaac Mary Relyea’s YOUTUBE clip. As Fr Isaac states, we have a heretical Pope and a pandemic hoax and a Communist takeover. (see YOUTUBE clip in comments higher up)

    This morning I was talking to a young mother who is desperate for a hip replacement operation. Finally she decided to go private as the NHS is idle. Much to her horror, she tried five private hospitals around the London area and was told by each hospital the Government has bought them up during ‘lockdown’ and all operations are now cancelled. They can only do an operation when contracted by the NHS. This mother realised that, in her own words, “this is Eugenics.” Finally ‘the penny dropped’ Communism is taking over!

    Interestingly Dr Kaufman was interviewed by Spiro Skouras again and Kaufman explains how Bill Gates will introduce a “vaccine for Covid – 19” that will generically modify us. As usual the clip has been censored repeatedly, but I have attached a link below that has been uploaded and has not been censored at this time.

  7. Well those figures do indeed tell their own story! So much for the guff we’re fed, being given the impression that we’re about to drop dead if we don’t keep these ridiculous rules.

    I saw a video of a doctor speaking about the science for “social distancing” and she said there isn’t any. It’s all guess work. We really are being had.

    • Lily,

      I came across an article when this scam started, pointing out that “social distancing” had been first proposed in 2006 in (I think) a term paper of a high school student, or something like that, and the idea was immediately and thoroughly ridiculed.

      So it seems the more ridiculous the idea, the better suited it is to the communists who control us. These people need to have sanitizer applied to their brains.

  8. I no longer pay any attention to opinion or political polling, or statistics. What has been clear for a long time is that the SNP have a authoritarian bent and cannot be trusted.

    A thing about the Cummings affair us that naive people like me, who initially went along with all this, had a sense of solidarity, the Dunkirk spirit. But this was illusory… there was no crisis, and we weren’t all in it together. We were taken as fools. In a way, so many people like me becoming disillusioned is a good thing, because it means more people will resist this insidious social and cultural revolution that is happening at present. Now I just want normality back; familiar, mundane, normality. But is this not an attachment to comfort? Does Fatima not show us that to obtain true peace, true spiritual triumph, we must first suffer?

    This spring and summer has been dreamlike to me. It doesn’t quite seem real. It doesn’t feel to me that things are going to last much longer the way they are. I first began to feel this way in 2012 when I first came to Tradition.

    • RCA Victor,

      That sounds promising. I hope it gets widely publicised in the news, but I doubt it – in the UK anyway, where all protests are suppressed

      Now, today, I read on MSN that the chief medical officer, Chris Whitty, thwarted Boris’s attempt to downgrade the alert level because he’s not keen on easing the lockdown.

      Not surprising – I wonder how much he’s being paid for his daily TV appearances?

  9. Editor,

    If I may be so bold, perhaps we could have a thread on the “Bill Gates global day of action” link I posted above? Maybe a few days before June 13?

    • RCA Victor,

      Sure. Can’t see why not. I’ll make a note (and what’s the bet the Pope will resign or something just at the moment when I press the “publish” button! Answer: we can easily have more than one thread live at the same time 😀

      I’ve already prepared it in drafts…

      Catholic Truth at your service!

      • RCA Victor,

        If you’d like me to post the Bill Gates thread sooner, just let me know.

        I’m up to my eyes with the newsletter right now so not been paying attention to the news in the sense of considering new blog threads, so I am willing to post your choice sooner – anything to save me thinking time 😀

        Just say the word which has to be either YES (post asap) or NO (wait till a few days before 13 June…)

        Or, the word may be “whatever”…. You decide… 😀

    • Editor

      These daily figures testify again and again to the con that has been played on the population, yet so many remain blind to the fact.

  10. It may be of no interest to you good folks but we here in Western Australia have been told that all our churches may reopen no matter what denomination. There still remains a restriction as to the number of people who may be in the church but even that is somewhat elastic. The number is 100 but if the venue has several rooms then it is 100 per room. And how about this bit of elasticity. If the room has several aisles then each aisle splits the room up into different groups and each group can contain up to 100 people! In other words our churches have been allowed to re-open. My local parish has been open for nearly two weeks now but we have to sign in at the back of the church so that if there is an outbreak of CV9 then the authorities will have a list of all possible recipients of the virus and can contact them all immediately and carry out tests to see if they have fallen victim to the virus.
    We still cannot receive Holy Communion from the chalice. Only the priest receives from the chalice. But then, that is the way it was for centuries, long before I received my First Holy Communion.

    • John Rayner

      So glad to hear that your churches are open again and even more pleased to hear that there’s no drinking from the chalice for the faithful, which originated in Protestantism. I hope that rule remains forever.

  11. Perhaps I should add where Western Australia stands as regards CV9. There are cases in other States but we have non of our own. We do have about 20 or so and all of them have caught the Virus outside of Western Australia. The last bunch were all Crew members of a ship which came into Fremantle from Abu Dhabi and they have all been taken and locked up in quarantine. This is causing us a problem because the ship came here to pick up sheep and those sheep are all penned up waiting to be put on the ship and we have a law which bans the export of live sheep after 1st of June because the conditions on the ship will be too hot for them sailing into hot weather.

  12. Does anyone have any knowledge about what temperature kills the corona virus? I found these two links below and would love to hear you thoughts on this matter.

    I mistakenly thought that the virus couldn’t survived 20 degrees or just above 20 degrees but I have no idea where I heard/read this and so I don’t have a source. I did quote this to a health professional and now feel rather stupid. The nurse asked me if I was sure about it. I was at the time but now think I have been mistaken. If anyone has a good source, it would be handy to know.

  13. If any of you are interested in the number of sheep which are caught up in this mess, it is 56,000 which should have been exported and now they are forbidden to export them. the Unions will not allow the farmers export these sheep because it is outside the law banning sheep being exported after 1st June. And the ship could not set sail with these sheep because at least 20 of the crew have gone down with Covid 19. The farmers are the ones bearing the cost of keeping these sheep here.

    • John,

      Ridiculous. That’s just one more example of the nonsense of this whole “crisis”.

      I see a headline which says Boris is taking control of the “crisis” – which I presume means he’s dumping his alleged “experts”. Not before time. They’ll be getting paid handsomely for their daily TV appearances, so little wonder that they don’t want the lockdown to be eased. Good riddance.

      • Editor

        I’m afraid Boris might be dumping one lot of experts, but look who he has brought in to fill the gap!!!! SEE LINK BELOW—video/

        They have just made it compulsory to wear a mask if you travel by bus, train or tube here in England. This new rule starts from the 15th June and you will be fined £80 if you are found not wearing one. The ruling gives Boris time to get the ‘tracing app and tracers’ ready for the next stage. I’m guessing that by September/October the rule might change to ‘you don’t have to wear the mask if you have the app.’ Then next year you will not be allowed to go into a shopping mall/supermarket unless you have the ‘app’ (and so on). So this mask wearing rule is slowly shepherding the sheep in the direction of total control.

  14. I hope I am not ‘jumping the gun’ as I believe there will be a “Bill Gates global day of action” thread on CTS soon, but Taylor Marshall has just released this blog about Bill Gates. It’s very disturbing and worth passing around to contacts incase they believe the lies and propaganda perpetuated in the UK media, not just on Bill Gates but on President Trump as well.

  15. Well, it is jumping the gun a bit – best if bloggers just watch the video and maybe Franscescomarta could post it again on the new thread where we could comment at that time. On the other hand, since repetition is the mother of education, I don’t suppose it would do any harm to comment here as well. This is an example – one of many – of me talking to myself 😀

  16. There’s a protest march in support of George Floyd (RIP) organised in Glasgow for Sunday, and there’s a “take the knee” for George tonight (same as the clap for carers idea.)

    But just as I was wondering why is this necessary, all right-thinking people are appalled at the death of George Floyd and want the police responsible to be taken the whole way, legally, locked up for life, meaning life, I came across this article:

    I don’t think it’s off topic, Editor, and hope you agree, because I think that the protest planned in Glasgow for Sunday will maybe not end well, because there will be troublemakers turning up at it, possibly, who will use it to send a message to the Scottish Government about lockdown, people are getting very frustrated with the restrictions.

    • Michaela

      The first thing you have to grasp is that these orchestrated demonstrations have nothing whatever to do with the murder of George Floyd, they are merely an excuse for anarchy, especially in America where they hope to do further harm to the Trump Presidency. The policeman who killed George Floyd has been charged with his murder, the law has therefore done its job, and yet everywhere the violence increases. These are Communist agitators engaging in urban warfare to harm our societies. They are doubtless funded and planned by external foreign agencies. You won’t catch any of these Anarchists of feigned outrage protesting abortion, by far a worse crime happening daily by the tens of thousands in every corner of our so-called “civilised world”.

    • MIchaela,

      Athanasius has nailed the true nature of the “protests,” but to answer your question, no, it isn’t “necessary.” It’s merely the socialists in your country (of which there seems to be quite a few) deploying one of their favorite axioms:

      “Never let a crisis go to waste.”

      • Micheala,

        as RCAVictor will no doubt verify, all the out of control anarchists, seem to occur in Demoncrat controlled States and cities.
        Perhaps a better word than ‘occur’ would be condoned in an attempt to remove the President.

        • As far as I know there will be protests in Glasgow this Sunday. So if this is pre-planned and it looks like it’s allowed, why can’t we (1) go to Mass and (2) have a public rosary in George Square?

  17. John Rayner,

    If I were you I would sign a fake name (and fake address and phone #, if that is also required).

  18. Dear Editor
    I know how you like a good laugh – and don’t need one now – but I saw a comment about our dear leader Saint Nicola today which made chuckle.
    This guy said that the halo above her head was a reflection from her brass neck.


    This is why President Trump has finally decided to classify these thugs as a terrorist organization. Another video I watched this morning reported cases of counterfeit US dollars caught by US Customs at the Minneapolis airport just before the riots began. The counterfeit money was from China…

  20. Oh, and another video report was about pallets of bricks being dropped off at various locations before the rioting started. Well-planned, well-funded, nothing to do with the murder of George Floyd, a lot to do with destroying America.
