The following is a transcript of a now-deleted video of a private meeting between Dr. Roger Hodkinson and several government officials in Alberta, Canada.
Dr. Hodkinson provides a brief overview of his background which includes a medical specialization in pathology. At present, he is the chairman of a biotechnology company in North Carolina which sells a COVID-19 test. He says, "...positive results do not - underlined in neon - mean clinical infection. It's simply driving public hysteria and all testing should stop unless you're presenting to hospital with some respiratory problem".
Dr. Hodkinson adds that no additional action needs to be done with regards to those presenting with COVID-19, except those that has been done in previous years: stay home, eat chicken noodle soup, and don't visit the elderly. He says that people are capable of deciding when they go back to work, there is no need for the government to mandate this. To contain the virus, Dr. Hodkinson says there is only one way: protect the vulnerable and the elderly [a proposal pushed forward by the Great Barrington Declaration, read The Great Barrington Declaration: Life must return to normal for the healthy, the vulnerable must be protected].
Editor's Note: There are so many things that can be said about this video. For one: why was it deleted? [We know that during the course of this pandemic, the experts who push for alternative solutions to COVID-19 have been repeatedly censored, see more articles here: Censorship].
Second, if the chairman of a company selling COVID-19 tests is saying that a positive test result does not mean infection, why do politicians measure the severity of the disease through the number of people who are infected? No other virus has been addressed this way in the past. Always, the disease burden and deaths were the markers for the severity. Why are the best practices in public health and medicine suddenly being overruled by politics? [See The danger of over-reliance on RT-PCR tests to know how previous pandemics were handled].
