A leading British anti-vaxxer is now in hospital with Covid after refusing to get the vaccine and claiming that the virus was "just a common cold".

John O'Looney, aged 53, finally decided that Covid-19 was serious and real after he was admitted to a hospital ICU unit with the virus last month.

The funeral director has become a well-known figure for anti-vaxxers with his social media videos that make unproven claims about the virus and the vaccine, reports Wales Online.However, his experience in hospital forced him to backtrack on Covid actually being just a "common cold".In a written statement to his followers, posted on December 31, he wrote: "I was initially sceptical about Covid but I can confirm its validity and it is very nasty."So let us make no mistake there is an enemy to face but does it require endless bouts of injections after injections after injections?"Mr O'Looney, from Milton Keynes, Bucks, complained that the hospital's food was "appalling" and "all tasted the same".He also claimed that doctors offered him a trial drug to help him recover but he "declined and stuck to my guns".He then discharged himself from hospital against doctors' advice.He said: "I feel very fortunate to have escaped hospital (I never dreamed I would have lived to say that) with the help of family and friends."The sinister whispering, the secrecy and the guilty looks amongst certain members of staff spoke volumes to me."It was honestly very chilling and traumatising just seeing how it has changed - especially when I asked to leave."Mr O'Looney said that he was still opposed to Covid vaccines and urged parents to take their kids out of school to avoid the jab.He has previously spoken at anti-vax events and was due to appear at a

Putting pantyhose over your face 'better at stopping Covid than a mask', study finds
ladies tights such as pantyhose on your face could reduce the risk of getting Covid, more so than masks.A major risk identified with commonly worn face masks is that they do not fit tightly enough to block viral particles from being inhaled or exhaled significantly.Cambridge University researchers have tested seven hacks to improve the fit of masks.Their new study outlined DIY hacks people have used to make masks fit better, including using rubber bands or tape.They found the most effective tactic was to wrap pantyhose around the bottom half of the face or on top of a mask.Researchers have said that this could reduce the number of viral particles by up to seven times more than a loose mask on its own by sealing the gaps around the nose and mouth.They raised that the social and physical impact of wearing tights on your face in public was "unlikely to be tolerated for an extended period of time".Tight-fitting medical masks are great at blocking out the virus, but many describe them as uncomfortable.The study raised that the most common surgical or cloth masks are far less resistant to Covid.Cambridge researchers recruited four volunteers to try seven different mask hacks - the study looked at both surgical and KN95 masks.Other methods included tying the ear bands to make the masks fit more tightly or stuffing the gaps with bandages.Participants did seven minutes of various exercises designed to mimic real-world interactions such as talking, smiling, nodding and eating.The researchers measured how well the masks fit by monitoring the filtration efficiency and calculating a 'fit factor' score.Pantyhose and cloth tape were most effective, increasing the fit factor by 27.7 and 14.7.Surgical masks performed better if worn in

Trucker convoy — Here’s what the 10-day injunction against horns includes Ottawa police have tapped the Children’s Aid Society (CAS) for advice on how to proceed with enforcement operations in the downtown core.They’re not seeking to take the kids out of the trucks or away from their parents at this stage, Bell said, but will follow the recommendations of CAS.“We’re not at the stage of looking to do any sort of enforcement activity around that,” he said.“We just think it’s an important factor that complicates and makes this an even more challenging operation.”To date, police and bylaw officers have issued more than 1,300 tickets for traffic violations, made 23 arrests and have 85 active criminal investigations related to the protest, which began as a response to vaccination mandates but has expanded to include a wide umbrella of anti-government sentiment.OPS are also liaising with U.S.
