UK Nurse Suspended, Reported To Nursing Council for Spreading COVID Conspiracy by katty : November 22, 2020, 04:37:01 PM
*Workers reported Tracey McCallum to bosses at Crosshouse Hospital in Ayrshire
 *The 45-year-old from Darvel was also reported to Nursing and Midwifery Council
*She has called Covid outbreak a 'scamdemic' and likened vaccines to 'genocide'
 *It comes as membership for an 'anti-vaxxer' NHS group doubled in size overnight

A NHS nurse has been suspended for spreading Covid conspiracy theories including that face masks help spread the virus and likening vaccines to 'genocide'.

Colleagues reported Tracey McCallum to NHS24 bosses at Crosshouse Hospital in Ayrshire, Scotland, after she branded the outbreak a 'scamdemic'.

The 45-year-old from Darvel was also reported to the Nursing and Midwifery Council after telling people vitamins and minerals could beat off the disease.

It comes as membership for an 'anti-vaxxer' NHS group that compared the Pfizer jab to 'poison' doubled overnight.

Matt Hancock last night revealed Britain has secured five million doses of Moderna's vaccine after UK officials scrambled to strike a last-minute deal with the US firm.

Meanwhile a far-right group has called for a 'violent insurrection' against firms working on a Covid jab in Germany.

Ms McCallum, who has worked for the NHS for 20 years, was suspended earlier this month after being off sick for weeks with work-related stress.

But she said she has spent hours doing her own research and has shared it in nursing groups.

A post on her Facebook, attributed to Polish author Monika Wisniewska, said: 'The vaccine should be tested on politicians first.'

The bizarre message added: 'If they survive, the vaccine is safe. If they don't, then the country is safe.'

One of her comments also said: 'NO PRIMARY CARE AT ALL.

'That will increase hospital admissions and deaths and keep this scamdemic going forever.

'Management everywhere are bullies and control us. Its all a game to see who can be the most sadistic.'

Another post claimed: 'I believe the NHS is as corrupt as the Government.'

While one more added: 'More people are waking up from the lie since birth. Tyranny! Genocide! Treason!

The world is going to be a better brighter place when we all move from the dark side.'

Ms McCallum has since stood by her comments and claimed she was targeted by top brass for asking 'too many questions'.

The nurse also backs Donald Trump's claim hydroxychloroquine was the way to beat the virus, despite experts' fears it could have dangerous side effects.

She claimed: 'There are 170-odd peer reviews that have said they have had really good outcomes with hydroxychloroquine, zinc and vitamins C and D, because our immune systems are amazing things.

'The drug is for malaria, but if it works, it works. I'd rather try that – something that's been around for years and is a good medication for a lot of things – than try a vaccine. I'm not being a guinea pig for that.'

On her genocide comment - which saw her removed from a 34,000-strong group chat called Nurses Roar - Ms McCallum doubled down.

She claimed nurses were tricked into medicating people during the war and Holocaust and alleges there were 'a lot of bad side effects'.

A spokesman for NHS24 told MailOnline: 'All matters relating to NHS 24 staff are treated in strictest confidence and in line with our internal processes. We are unable to comment further.'

NHS workers appearing to be flocking to 'anti-vaxxer' groups on social media, with one doubling in size overnight.

NHS Workers for Choice, No Restrictions for Declining a Vaccine went from 250 members yesterday to more than 500.

Accounts in the group have compared the Pfizer jab to 'poison', opposed the wearing of masks and railed against testing in hospitals.

The group is reported to include Sheffield-based GP Julie Coffey - who has said she will not wear masks in shops - A&E nurses, healthcare assistants and lab workers.

But it has been slapped with a warning label telling people to visit the NHS website for advice on vaccinations.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock yesterday branded the group's message 'entirely inappropriate'.

The private Facebook page claims it was not started as an anti-vaxxer movement but was to help healthcare workers.

But a probe found members say the Pfizer vaccine, which has had positive initial results from its clinical trial, was 'poison' and a frozen virus waiting to be 'unleashed'.

The group was started as 'NHS workers for choice, not restrictions for not wanting a vaccine' on October 4.

But it changed its name to 'NHS workers for choice, no restrictions for declining a vaccine' on the same day.

The admins are listed as William Steed, Linda Rose, Heather Atkinson and Aurora Cavarra.
