Forced Corona-Testing of Schoolchildren

I reported last week on a school in Germany in which fourth-graders were forced to undergo coronavirus testing without the knowledge or permission of their parents.

The video below from Aurich TV is a follow-up to its earlier report. It includes an audio interview with the mother of one of the children who were tested.

Video transcript:

01:54   Our main topic is the continuation of yesterday’s topic.
01:57   As you know, we reported on the Corona tests at the Waldorf School.
02:02   Of course we’re not interested in discrediting or denigrating any employees of health authorities.
02:10   We’re not trying to create anger toward them, and of course we aren’t trying to spread panic.
02:17   We want to make that clear. However, what we want to report the fact that at least one child
02:25   was tested without the consent of the parents. There’s a completely clear legal procedure
02:32   for something like this and how it should be carried out.
02:36   Namely, in order to carry out such a Corona test,
02:39   one must ask the parents for a declaration of consent.
02:43   This doesn’t necessarily mean from the school,
02:47   but from the health department which performed the test.
02:51   Obviously, it appears that everyone was surprised
02:54   by the entire action and was also rather overwhelmed by it.
02:58   If we then extrapolate the legal implications, as I said,
03:03   there’s an obligation to obtain a declaration of consent of parents.
03:09   In this case, there was no consent. De facto non-existent.
03:14   So extrapolating the legal implications further, the word “assault”
03:19   could be used, because if seen critically,
03:23   the children had these test sticks stuck down their throats
03:27   and afterward had sore throats. It hurt them.
03:30   Not to mention the mental anguish, which isn’t applicable legally.
03:34   However, any bodily physical pain
03:37   enters into the area of assault quite easily.
03:41   We wanted to report on this case, and therefore spoke with the mother on the phone this afternoon.
03:49   We interviewed her in order to simply ask some questions.
03:55   They are the same questions we asked her yesterday, but this way everyone can hear for themselves.
04:00   Here is the interview, which is only a couple of minutes long. Please listen to the very end.
04:05   Here is the interview with the mother of the child that was tested without consent.
04:10   We aren’t revealing her name, although we have it, along with contact information
04:14   and telephone number. We’ll keep that secret, because the family
04:18   Is now under quarantine due to suspected infections, etc.
04:22   Of course we don’t want the family to end up in a s***storm or attacked by anyone.
04:30   The fact is, as the mother told me on the phone, they have hired a lawyer to examine this matter,
04:35   and will also take legal action against it. Now for the interview:
04:44   Did you know that a Corona Test would be performed on your child? —No. We knew nothing about it.
04:51   Were you given any notice? —No, I wasn’t given any notice what so ever.
04:56   You told us previously about frightened and upset classmates.
05:03   Apparently, these tests didn’t go over as well as it was assumed.
05:08   What I know — well, what my son told me is that a girl
05:12   was crying bitterly in class. She didn’t want to take the test.
05:16   She had already been like that before the test because she was very afraid of it.
05:21   The children were quite intimidated, of course, by the way this entire action was conducted.
05:28   They came in full Hazmat gear. In personal infection protection outfits.
05:33   They met the disease control unit.
05:37   They must have been taken by storm, because it was announced
05:42   by the teacher to the class at 10:10am,
05:46   and by half past ten the children were already done with the testing.
05:53   It went incredibly fast. It really did.
05:58   Were you given the opportunity to be present for the testing
06:02   As mother and the child’s legal custodian?
06:05   Absolutely not, because the only call I received from the school was at 11:03 a.m., informing me
06:12   that I had to pick up my son. I was a little concerned. I asked if something had happened.
06:18   I was told: “No, it’s nothing bad, the health department was here,
06:21   the fourth-grade class has to go into quarantine.
06:24   They have all just been tested and now they have to go home.” And then of course my jaw dropped
06:31   and I asked: “Tested for what? How tested?”
06:35   So then they started with the Paragraph 29 Infection Protection law shtick,
06:39   and explained that the health department came in the morning
06:43   and all the children of the fourth-grade class along with
06:46   some of the teachers needed to be tested.
06:50   So that was a real eye-opener. I asked them why I hadn’t been informed about it beforehand,
06:53   to which they said they couldn’t reach me, which is not true. I had my cell phone with me
06:59   the whole time and we were also at home. Our landline wasn’t busy, either.
07:03   There was no call from the school or the health department, that I registered, until 11:03am.
07:10   By then everything was over and I was told to pick up my son.
07:13   So that means not only were you not legally informed, but you received no information whatsoever?
07:18   None at all. None at all. I was so shocked. Then I got into the car to pick up my son.
07:26   At the school there was no opportunity for a discussion,
07:29   neither with the teacher nor with the school administration.
07:33   I wasn’t permitted to talk to them. The health department
07:37   had also disappeared, ten minutes before I arrived there.
07:40   Everyone made themselves scarce. The teacher was very panicky.
07:45   She even expelled me from school, because I had entered the school without a mask.
07:52   She was very panicky, and warned all the children
07:55   to put on their masks immediately and that they had to leave school.
07:59   I told her I wanted to pick up my son, and that I was shocked. I asked what had just happened here.
08:04   She answered by saying that I had to ask the school administration, or ask the health department.
08:09   Then I was asked to leave the school immediately.
08:12   It was very shocking for us, I must honestly say.
08:15   Do you know if a judge ordered these measures? —No, I don’t know.
08:21   Such official action must always be proportionate.
08:29   Weren’t you offered to voluntarily quarantine your child beforehand?
08:34   No. Actually, nothing was done before.
08:38   I was only informed of the facts afterwards.
08:42   During a conversation with the health department employee,
08:47   he mentioned the fact that everyone needs to get tested when there is a suspicion,
08:53   according to the infection protection law.
08:57   I answered that by saying I believed what happened to be grossly negligent.
09:01   I should have been offered the choice to put my child in quarantine for 14 days.
09:09   We could have done that without any problem, but that did not happen.
09:15   Did your child have any Corona symptoms? Yesterday or today?
09:20   Coughing, fever, or breathing problems?
09:24   No. Not at all. He’s in perfect health. That’s what I told the health department employee.
09:29   A perfectly healthy boy. Of course he was very traumatized
09:33   after being tested yesterday. That’s what happened.
09:36   Shocked, traumatized, and we had a sleepless night.
09:40   There was a lot of crying done here in our family. He’s completely confused.
09:45   He asks why he isn’t allowed to leave the house. He says: “I didn’t do anything wrong”.
09:49   Those are the consequences we have to bear right now.
09:53   How did the examination proceed? Did your son share that with you?
09:57   Yes. He told me, a test swab was taken from a milky liquid,
10:03   and stuck down his throat three times. Quite far down.
10:09   He kept touching the lower part of his neck and it still hurt him badly yesterday.
10:12   I asked him: “Why three times?”
10:15   He said, “Well, I pulled away a little bit and moved my tongue.” And it hurt, of course.
10:22   That was my first question. I’m really grateful and happy that this was not a nasal smear.
10:30   I have seen very bad videos of that. —Yes.
10:35   These were throat swabs, but taken three times from him.
10:40   Was it similar with the other children? Did your son tell you anything?
10:44   He could only tell me about one boy who also said to him before if all happened:
10:48   “Let’s just go out the window. Come on, let’s just take off really quick,” he said.
10:52   However, the two of them didn’t dare. For obvious reasons, of course.
10:57   Apparently, this boy had to have it done four times.
11:01   The two boys talked about it. He was squirming around the whole time and he
11:06   was making a little noise and coughing. So he had to do it four times.
11:11   Were there already cases of suspected Corona infections in the class?
11:14   Or any children with symptoms that you know about?
11:17   I only know what the health department employee told me.
11:23   He said there is a sibling of one of the fourth-graders
11:26   in this class that has tested positive for Corona.
11:29   However, that child has been in quarantine with his family since August 28th.
11:33   Apparently, his brother tested positive for Corona.
11:38   This is what the health department informed me yesterday per telephone. Additionally,
11:44   I was told that two days before the end of their quarantine
11:49   they needed to quickly test the fourth grade class of this sibling.
11:54   Do you think it is absolutely necessary or appropriate
11:59   to test the children in school due to the circumstances?
12:04   No. Absolutely not. In my opinion, it was very traumatizing for some of them.
12:11   You could tell. As a mother, I could see it even in the faculty.
12:17   The school secretary was very upset, distraught and also a little overwhelmed.
12:23   She had to inform everyone. Apparently by phone, and the phone didn’t stop ringing.
12:30   It seems that she forgot to inform us, if I might say it like that.
12:36   The teacher also seemed very stressed. Very overwhelmed. They were all very shocked.
12:43   The children also sat there looking very sad and shocked.
12:47   At the beginning, you said that the health authorities
12:51   had come to the school in full gear. What do you mean by that?
12:55   White protective suits? —Yes, that’s the way our son described it to us.
13:02   He described them like astronaut suits.
13:06   Okay. —But I don’t know. I didn’t see them.
13:10   To your previous question, I want to mention that the health department employee told me that
13:18   apparently some of the children in the fourth grade had Corona symptoms,
13:24   which I can’t comprehend.
13:28   However, I don’t want to make assumptions. That’s what he told me.
13:31   He said there are Corona symptoms present
13:34   in some of the fellow students of the class.
13:38   I told him that our son had never met with this family.
13:42   But he couldn’t have known that before he tested them because no information at all was available.
13:52   So, dear friends, those were very moving words.
13:55   I was a bit astonished myself when I recorded this interview,
13:59   and re-asked the questions. Well, there seems to be a degree of chaos involved here.
14:04   And of course now all sorts of people are trying to play the whole thing down.
14:08   To negate it, and then of course they
14:11   also try to put Aurich TV in a dubious light. You are welcome to do that.
14:17   We can accept that, but the facts speak for themselves.
14:21   As I said, everyone can claim what they want, but the fact remains a child was tested.
14:28   Another fact is, there was no consent from the parents.
14:32   I think it’s really bad how these children were frightened.
14:36   Imagine how scared they where when suddenly men show up in spacesuits in their classroom and
14:40   they’re all told everyone is going to take the Corona test. I don’t know.
14:44   We’re talking about nine- and ten-year-old children.
14:47   This certainly has turned out to be very, very, very bad.
14:51   I don’t want to say any more than that at this point. Make up your own mind.
14:55   Leave a comment and share this video. With that I’ll say:
14:58   we’ll see each other again in the next few days.
15:01   There are plenty of topics in this city, and see you soon.
15:04   Take care and above all stay healthy. Ciao. Bye.
