Welcome to The Vlog Couple
Thanks for popping along to our website, it’s great to have you here. We are Paul, Lee and Hector the Mighty Hound and in 2018 we decided to abandon the urban rat race and escape to the rural Northamptonshire countryside in England to live aboard our 45ft narrowboat called Hannah. We started The Vlog Couple YouTube channel back in 2020 during the initial lockdowns because we wanted to record our day to day lives during those testing times and also to give us something productive to do! We did already have another channel called Hannah the Narrowboat but as we were not going to be cruising during lockdowns we decided to start something new and The Vlog Couple was born and relaunched proper in 2022.

I don’t usually get political on this blog or indeed on any boating or alternative lifestyle forums including groups on facebook etc but I am now beginning to get quite annoyed with people that are going along with everything they hear on the mainstream media. This post is aimed at providing the facts about the current Covid-19 situation as well as some examples of what REAL people are saying and feeling about it.
Just as an example of something you most certainly never heard on the BBC et al is that on the 16th Sept 6 people died where corona virus was ‘mentioned’ and 4 of those were over the age of 80. What I wuld love to know us what the Office of National Statistics means by ‘mentioned’. Around 10 times that amount died of common flu.
Let’s start by watching to some REAL people talking about how they see the current situation and how they are feeling.
“You can’t see a virus but you CAN see a pandemic”
DATA FROM THE OFFICE OF NATIONAL STATISTICS
Of the deaths registered in Week 36 (week ending 4th Sept 2020), 78 mentioned “novel coronavirus (COVID-19)”, the lowest number of deaths involving COVID-19 in the last 25 weeks and a 22.8% decrease compared with Week 35 (a difference of 23 deaths), accounting for 1.0% of all deaths in England and Wales.
As you can see from the graph above influenza and pneumonia deaths far outweigh the deaths where CV-19 was ‘mentioned’. This virus CAN NOT be isolated in any test and includes all corona viruses, even fragments which in essence makes the testing highly innacurate. Cases are not deaths.
Face masks were made mandatory in the UK at the start of July when CV-19 deaths were aleady much lower than flu deaths. If face masks made any difference why are flu cases at the normal yearly levels, surely they should be almost zero too.
