Coronavirus Act 2020 and what it means to the public

I am not trained in law, so trying to make sense of a legal document can be a challenge. The following points are my interpretation of the information in the Coronavirus Act 2020. This Act was dated 25th March 2020, therefore it must have been drafted after the outbreak in Wuhan, China when it was first identified in December 2019. I welcome anyone with a deeper knowledge on the subject to correct me.

The document as a whole, is written to provide direction if a large percentage of the population were to die of coronavirus. The media has given the impression that the fatality rate has/is soaring with hospitals at full capacity leading to the construction of temporary medical accommodation. It seems the creation of such a document may not have been necessary when comparing at the actual number of deaths documented by cremations (listed first) and burials (listed second), for the City Councils in the table below. These figures are provided by Nick Milner and other individuals who have requested the information. They compare the deaths in 2020 to the deaths in the previous four years. As you can see, there is no drastic increase in 2020 cremations or burials to match the astronomical figures reported in the main stream news. This is only a small collection of City Councils, I suggest you write to your own Council and request their data.

The Coronavirus Act 2020 has the Royal Coat of Arms at the top which states ‘Dieu et mon droit’ meaning “God and my right” and ‘Honi soit qui mal y pense’ meaning “Evil to him who thinks evil” (Arms, n.p). “The function of the Royal coat of arms is to identify the person who is Head of State” (Arms, n.p). According to the sovereign’s way, the ‘identity’ of a head of state can enforce rules on an identity of a human, but “your rights can never be taken away” (Section 1.3). If the government wants to give you an order you are entitled to send them a notice. That notice may contain the following words: “no it’s not my wish to accept this order at this time, however if you were trying to enforce that order on me i would consider that as a trespass and i would seek 10 million dollars plus a dollar per second as that trespass continues” (Section 1.3: 1:01). When it comes to Common Law, man and woman are the reality; the queen, sovereign, citizen are all fictitious titles (the sovereign’s way, n.p.). We have more rights than we are told!

The first 99 pages of the Coronavirus Act 2020: Chapter 7 allows for guidances implemented from March 2020 until 25th March 2022. The total document is 374 pages and I have chosen to list the following points relevant to England only (unless otherwise stated).

Emergency registration of nurses, social workers, medical practitioners, and other health professionals (p. 2) is permitted. In other words the qualification process can be simplified (or considered as training on the job) in order to rapidly increase the number of employees in these fields. This emergency registration allows for an extension of prescribing powers for pharmaceutical chemists (Nothern Ireland, but similar to England and Wales in later parts of the document) (p. 2). This will allow more people to prescribe medication/’vaccines’. If/when the ‘Department’ advises the “registrar that an emergency has occurred, is occurring or is about to occur” (p. 84), then a suitably experienced person (hence the ‘emergency registration’) can be given the rights to “order drugs, medicines and appliances…with regard to the emergency” (p. 84). An “emergency volunteering certificate” can be provided by an appropriate authority giving an individual health or social care privileges (without them needing to be trained). Section 11 provides indemnity (protection against liability, loss or damage) for health service activity such as caring for, diagnosing or treating a person who has, or is suspected of having been infected or contaminated with coronavirus (p. 5). This means that any person providing guidance/medication/vaccination/care for someone contaminated, or not, with coronavirus cannot be sued for any ill after-effects as a result of their treatment for coronavirus, or suspected, including any ‘vaccine’ administered. This must send alarm bells ringing!

Schedule 12 states that Local Authorities do not have to comply with the Care Act 2014: Sections 9, 10, 12 [(1) or (2)], and 12 [(3) and (4)]. These sections of the Care Act 2014 state what/how assessments are made for adults and carer’s. This also applies to children, their carer’s, and young carer’s. In other words, assessments are not compulsory under the Coronavirus Act 2020. The Care Act 2014, Section 17, states that the individual can be requested to finance some or all of the care given although Schedule 12 (3) of the Coronavirus Act 2020 over rules this assessment of financial resources therefore it does not need to be made. Schedule 12 (4) says that “a local authority must meet an adult’s needs for care and support…” (p. 139). Here I would express that I, personally, have a need to be unvaccinated!

“The Secretary of State may issue guidance about how local authorities are to exercise functions” ( p. 145) for the chronically sick and disabled. This quote states GUIDANCE only. Local authorities can ‘guide’ and effectively ‘bully’, but they cannot force. Schedule 8 applies to ‘Mental Health: England and Wales’. Part 1 and 2 expired in December 2020 but did state that mental health applications could be approved for compulsory admission to hospital and once in hospital, that patient can be given medical treatment without requiring their consent (p. 112).

Section 18 informs us of temporary modifications to registration of deaths and still-births etc. Under this Section, a funeral director becomes qualified to give information about a death of a person (p. 153). No signature is required in a register of deaths or still-births (p. 153). The ‘Cause of Death’ medical certificates can be signed by medical practitioners without seeing the deceased person, while the cause of death is to be stated by the practitioner’s best knowledge or belief (p. 154). This and the following section say that ‘the cause of death’ can be believed by a qualified person rather than medically proven. Section 19 states that death certificates are not required for cremations. Information about a death or still-birth does not need to be given if the informer is ill, needs to care for others, or is at risk of infection, or there are staff shortages (p. 153).

Section 22 allows the appointment of temporary Judicial Commissioners.

Section 24 allows the extension of time limits for retention of fingerprints and DNA profiles (up to 12 months).  

Section 25 requires the reporting of any food supply chain shortages.

Section 37 allows for temporary closure of schools and child care providers.

Section 50 gives the power to suspend port operations.

Section 61 allows for the postponement of elections.

Section 74 gives the power to amend National Insurance Contributions.

Section 48 relates to Northern Ireland (duplicated in further sections with regards to Scotland and England: Section 52). The Department of Health may (p. 246) restrict aircraft, trains and other conveyances from arriving or leaving any place (p. 223), detain conveyances, detain, isolate, or quarantine things and additionally medically examine or question people (p. 224), but they cannot require individuals to be vaccinated generally or for travel (25E, p. 226). In Scotland, they cannot require a person to undergo medical treatment including vaccination and other prophylactic treatment (p. 241). The following is an extract from Schedule 18 (6) which applies to Northern Ireland (p. 225).

Part 2 of the Coronavirus Act 2020 ‘Powers Relating to Potentially Infectious Persons in England’ (p. 248) seems to be duplicated for Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland). Here it is stated that the Chief Medical Officer or any Deputy Chief Medical Officers of the Department of Health and Social Care, as consulted by the Secretary of State, may declare a transmission control period. This is when an incidence or transmission of coronavirus constitutes a serious and imminent threat to public health in England. The transmission control period must be published online and in the London Gazette and revoked when the declaration is revoked (p. 248). In the publication a public health/immigration officer or constable may:

  • Direct/remove or request a removal of a person to screening and assessment if they have reasonable grounds to suspect a person is potentially infectious (p. 249)
  • The person referred to screening and/or assessment cannot be held for over 48 hours. They can either provide a biological sample OR answer questions about their health (p. 251)
  • If the person is suspected of being infected, their travel, activities and contact with others may be restricted for up to 14 days (p. 253). A person under restrictions may appeal (p. 254)
  • A child (under the age of 18) can be directed or required to go to a place (p. 255). Any requirement, given to the child, must be set out in writing.
  • When the transmission control period comes to an end, any exercised requirements or restrictions come to an end (p. 256)

Schedule 22 ‘Powers to Issue Directions Relating to Events, Gatherings and Premises’ seems to be duplicated for Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland (p. 285). This part applies to “Crown premises” as the insert describes below, but does not include vessels owned by ‘her majesty’ or under control of an officer holding ‘her majesty’s commission (p. 285). In this section it states that only the owner/organiser/persons involved in organising events, gatherings, or premises can be restricted, therefore there are no restrictions for attendees (p. 287).

Final points of interest are that audio/video links are eligible in court proceedings. A local authority may give direction to facilitate transportation, storage or disposal of dead bodies or other human remains in or from its area (p. 352) and protection from eviction ends on 31st May 2021 for England and 30th June 2021 for Wales (p. 358).
