two.1.4) Short description

The Authority seeks to procure a framework agreement for temporary body storage in the event of an excess deaths situation for the 32 London boroughs and the City of London, led by Westminster City Council. The framework agreement will appoint a single provider and will be for a period of 4 years. This will be a contingency contract, only called upon in the event that an excess deaths situation arises in the future and existing local body storage capacity needs to be augmented.

The over-arching aim of this tender is to provide a single framework supplier that will be able to provide temporary body storage facilities to house deceased in the event of an excess death situation. The deceased will be stored with dignity and respect, at locations to be determined based on local London needs at the time and will require some design elements to accommodate local site conditions and constraints, while being capable of rapid deployment, construction, and commissioning to an agreed standard. This framework will be procured by the Authority as the pan-London lead, but all London local authorities may call off against the framework.

This will be a contingency cover framework and as such, there is no minimum guarantee of any level of spend or call-off under the framework agreement.

Dr. Robert Gorter:

Why would the UK government expect a wave of deaths in the fall of 2021? One can only speculate at this point but in the fall of 2021, the next seasonal flu epidemic will start when in the Northern Hemisphere, the season changes and makes it more favorable for the next flu epidemic to start.

But: the UK government never wanted to build extra storehouses for corpses and extra crematoriums to get rid of the deceased till now. Or, is it true were many outstanding virologists and immunologists have been waning for over one year? That the mRNA-based anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccines would cause major and lethal side effects after 1-3 years later and cytokine storms when vaccinated would be exposed to “wild virus” of the Corona family?

Would being vaccinated actually be of a great disadvantage?

Also, being vaccinated without documenting if that person has already immunity against the Coronavirus family is a great mistake: 

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-021-92521-4

It is estimated that about 40% of all Europeans have already immunity against SARS-CoV-2 and it is a mistake to vaccinate for infections for which one has already immunity.
