For each person who has a confirmed infectious disease, the UK Health Protections Regulations (Notifications) Act requires the “registered practitioner” (i.e. doctor) at Section 2(a) OR the registered laboratory operator at Section 4(1) to report the case in the Notification of Infectious Diseases (NOIDS) register.
Covid-19 is an infectious disease with the requirement to report and therefore all confirmed cases, as well as variants, are required to be registered in NOIDS.
The NOIDS website publishes weekly reports where you can see these details. For the latest week published (week 52 of 2021) there are just 18 registered Covid-19 cases, with 13 of these in Chorley:
This is in stark contrast to the total 1,051,807 new claimed Covid-19 cases reported for week 52 of 2021 on the Government coronavirus website
The NOIDS week 52 report was not an anomaly. In fact, the total Covid-19 cases reported for the whole of the years 2020 and 2021 in NOIDS were
Year 2020 2021
Total confirmed Covid-19 cases 13,911 2,070
That is a total of 15,981 cases over the first 22 months, compared to more than 15 million claimed on the Government coronavirus website. So only about 1 in 1000 of the claimed cases have been registered with NOIDS, despite the statutory requirement to do so.
So why the massive discrepancy? It is claimed that many GPs believe that the PCR test labs were supposed to register cases, not them. If so, any lab who found a positive test result was required by law to report it. If the GPs claims are true, then either the labs are in breach of the law, or the Government coronavirus case numbers are more inflated than even the greatest of Covid skeptics ever believed possible.
As a caveat, it should be noted that relatively few cases of Flu or flu like diseases were reported prior to 2020 and these have almost vanished completely since the advent of Covid 19.
It is possible, of course, that the government told medical staff to ignore NOIDS, in which case they would be deliberately breaking their own rules which, in itself is an extremely serious matter that requires investigation. If the Government did not provide such recommendations, then the NOIDS figures are likely to be true; this would be an even greater scandal given the data provided on the coronavirus website that has driven the entire Covid narrative.
In summary, NOIDS is a Statutory website and, as an infectious disease, all confirmed Covid-19 cases must be fully and accurately reported to it by law. Other infectious diseases (except for flu) do seem to be consistently recorded in NOIDS. But less than 16,000 Covid-19 cases have been reported so far. Hence, either the site figures are manipulated (illegally) or the government has decided to ignore the site (also illegal) and use different highly inflated Covid-19 case numbers from other sources.
