Ontario “Covid Measures” Are Destroying Our Public Health

Dr. Patrick Philips, who practices medicine in Englehart, Ontario, explains in an interview with MPP Randy Hillier, that current public health measures are harming the overall public health of Canadians.

At first glance, this appears to be counter-intuitive, since public health measures should improve public health, but in reality, public health “Covid Measures” are currently a threat to everyone’s health.

How is that?

Philips explains that the government’s singular focus on COVID means that other determinants of health, including social determinants, are being neglected and denied to the point that our overall health is suffering dramatically.

During lockdowns, surgical and dental procedures have been postponed or cancelled. Cancer screenings have been postponed or cancelled. Consequently, explains Philips, people are presenting, as an example, with late stage cancer, which under normal conditions, would have been detected and treated earlier. Similarly, people, from fear of contracting COVID, are waiting too long to address cardiac issues.

Hospital emergency services have been under-utilized, explains Hillier, and there were fewer diagnostic tests, and fewer Doctor visits between March and June of 2020.

Dr. Philips adds that ICU units have also been under-utilized.

Philips explains that whereas children have practically NO RISK of dying from COVID, he has seen vast increases in depression, anxiety, and suicidality amongst children. Likewise, elderly patients are suffering from isolation and depression, and are losing their will to live.

Whereas Public Health is focusing almost exclusively on COVID, with its fear-mongering propaganda and seriously flawed statistics, Philips explains that at the same time it is failing to address measures that would improve public health — and COVID outcomes. It is failing, for example, to address obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and myriad other factors that contribute to public health outcomes.

Exercise, diet, sunshine, Vitamin D, and social activities all contribute to health and well-being. They also mitigate risks from COVID.

Following the advice of “experts” says Philips, is the lowest form of evidence. Instead, data should be assessed against opposing data, and a meta-analysis should be conducted by competent authorities. Decisions should be based upon the meta-analysis. Currently, opposing views and data are being heavily censored by Mainstream Everything.

Current government measures, which violate our constitutional rights to assemble and protest and present alternate information, are all toxic in terms of our public health. Unsound public health diktats, an off-shoot of the censorship, have become a danger to our collective Public Health.
