COVID-19 — “The Spiral of Silence” Theory [UPDATE : Intel Today scores a major point against Belgian Covid experts]

“When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent. Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, ‘I can nudge this up a bit,’ so I went to 80, 85.’”

Dr. Anthony Fauci

January 22 2021 — I have long expected that various governments around the world would use the “Spiral of Silence” theory to convince people to get vaccinated. Dr. Fauci admitted that much in a recent interview. Belgium however has found its own version of this scam to betray the population and other EU member states. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY

UPDATE (January 28 2021) — Less than 24 hours after I exposed the scandal of the false Covid vaccination statistics, SCIENSANO — the Belgian administration in charge of reporting these data — has now corrected these fraudulent numbers. More or less…

As you can see, SCIENSANO is now reporting both the useless “18+coverage” as well as the meaningful total coverage.

I guess this is just a reminder that a lonely blogger can make a difference in this world.

OK. This is a small step, but that is not good enough. I want the real coverage for each regions to be published. Why?

Because, as I have explained in this post, the “18+coverage” data for the Brussels region is highly misleading for at least two obvious reasons.

First, the population in Brussels is very young. Most of them belong to the Muslim community and they are strongly opposed to Covid vaccination.

Second, according to a classified report, the strongest vector of the Covid virus in Brussels are the kids aged 5 to 12 years old.

Sadly, although SCIENSANO is now reporting the total coverage, Belgian media continue to publish the useless 18+coverage.

Shame on them!


UPDATE (January 27 2021) — When I learned that the new health minister for Brussels was Alain Maron (French speaking Green Party — ECOLO), I warned you that a disaster was coming.

Please, keep in mind that I warned you BEFORE the pandemic had started.

How did I know? Because this idiot belongs to the gang that turned ‘Bruxelles Environnement’ [the ‘Brussels-Capital Environment Protection Agency’] into a criminal organization. 

Let me remind you that Belgium has the highest death rate in the world, and in the Region of Brussels-Capital, the relative death rate is much (almost twice) higher than the average for Belgium.

Just a few days ago, Alain “the Moron” Maron claimed that 100% of the people living in Brussels would be vaccinated by June 1st 2021.

Guess what? Here are the data.

Sometimes, a simple pic is really worth a thousand words…

What does Maron have to say? Once again, this moron argues that it is just the ‘methodology’ that is responsible for a big misunderstanding.

I am not convinced that those who have lost a loved one appreciate this sick joke…

PS — It seems that many people have now heard my early warning regarding the absolute incompetence of this sinister minister.

“Les lacunes du ministre Maron n’ont donc pas de limites?” Céline Fremault (cdH).

“Inacceptable. On aurait pu comprendre ceci au mois de mars mais pas après 10 mois de pandémie.” Alexia Bertrand (MR)


“Those Who Are Good at Making Excuses Are Seldom Good at Anything Else.”

Benjamin Franklin

Elisabeth Noelle-Neuman was a professor of communication sciences and a public opinion researcher.

Her field of expertise was the control of the masses through systematic influencing by a small minority of journalists.

In the 1970’s, Noelle-Neuman formulated the “Spiral of Silence” theory which is widely used nowadays.

The trick is very simple. First the media publish the result of a poll which is completely incorrect. A minority opinion is being reported as the majority opinion by various mass media.

But, most people are very afraid to socially isolate themselves. So, they keep quiet about their objections and they may even change their mind about the issue to join the fake majority, which in the process becomes the new real majority. It is simple and it works!

Of course, the intention is not necessarily evil. Nevertheless these media lie and help manipulating your thoughts.

Here is a current possible application. Experts use an estimated herd immunity threshold of 70% for their COVID-19 models.

[This estimate is based on a guess of the real value of R (no lock-down measures whatsoever) and a 100% efficient vaccine which has been designed for the early strain of the virus. Thus, this estimate could be unrealistically optimistic.]

Let us assume that the vaccination intent in a country is around 50%, The media could start reporting false poll results showing a 90% intent in order to silence the opponents and to convince undecided people that their fears are unfounded.

As people want to avoid social isolation, they may be prompted to follow the herd…

Belgian Government Fudging Vaccination Data

Today (January 22 2021), the percentage of the Belgian population already ‘vaccinated’ — first does only — in the three regions is:

Brussels: 1.31%

Flanders: 1.76%

Wallonia: 1.94%

What is the problem? Not only these percentages are ridiculously small, but these numbers have been inflated.

These percentages refer to the part of the population which is older than 18. And the virus could not care less about these fraudulent numbers.

The only number that matters to achieve herd immunity if the percentage of the TOTAL population vaccinated.

How bad is this lie? Let me focus on Brussels.

In 2020, about 1217 thousand people were living in the Brussels-Capital Region.

The population in this Region is quite young as 23 percent are aged 17 or younger. [1]

In the Brussels-Capital Region, 12,291 people have received the first shot of the vaccine so far. This corresponds to 1.01% of the population.

In other words, the Belgian government and its administrations have simply manipulated the data to inflate the rate of vaccination by 30%.

I sincerely hope that the European Commission will promptly request that Belgium provide accurate data on this matter.

I wish that all those involved in this fraud could be immediately dismissed from their job.

Let me remind you that Belgium has the highest death rate in the world, and in the Region of Brussels-Capital, the relative death rate is much (almost twice) higher than the average for Belgium.

There is something rotten in the Kingdom…

PS — Over the last 10 years, the government of Brussels has used dozen of tricks to lie to the population about the effect of the Telecom Industry. Today, Alain Maron is in charge of both the COVID and the 5G dossiers. Good luck!

Most of the 14,000 deaths linked to the coronavirus in Belgium could have been avoided. Your political system has failed. This typical Belgian system has done nothing good. People have died because of the political organization, you have to think about it.”

Richard Horton — Editor-in-chief of the scientific medical journal The Lancet (Nov. 17 2020)

Population of Belgium in 2020, by age and region — STATISTA

[1] 277 thousand people living in the Brussels-Capital Region were aged 17 or younger, roughly 781 thousand were aged between 18 and 64, and approximately 159 thousand people were older than 65.
