Judicial protest filed against Gauci, Fearne for “instilling national panic”

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

A group of 62 people who are sceptical about the effects of Covid-19 have filed a judicial protest against Health Minister Chris Fearne and Public Health Superintendent Prof. Charmaine Gauci accusing them of instilling national panic over the pandemic.

These people argued that Prof. Gauci introduced a set of restrictions to prevent the virus from spreading without declaring a state of emergency.

They also questioned the results of the swab tests done to see whether a person is infected with COVID-19. Regarding those asymptomatic people who have to isolate themselves, they stressed that healthy people are being labelled as sick and dangerous to others when there is no scientific evidence to show this. They insisted that healthy people could not be ordered to quarantine.

The group accused Prof. Gauci of not carrying out the necessary diligence when introducing the restrictive measures made to control the spread of infections.

With this judicial protest, the group of people want Prof. Gauci to revoke “medically insensible” decisions such as wearing masks in public, social distancing that prevents families from meeting, and other rules related to burying relatives. According to them, measures forcing establishments, clubs and schools to act as police with citizens should be repealed.

Beyond Covid-19, these people also want to stop the transmission of 4G and 5G technology until the safety of radio frequencies is established.
