Just how stupid are these people terrorised by Covid. This stupid!
Since the info above is clear and visible to me but not on the blog, here is a summary of what it says.
Australian Flu Cases in 2019: 302,092
Australian Covid Cases 2020-21 46,726
Australian Flu Deaths in 2019: 950
Australian Covid Deaths 2020-21 985
If these numbers are even remotely correct it’s a shameful madness.
Might match these figures up with another set from Instapundit.

Just how evil are the politcians & health bureaucrats who’ve done the terrorising?
Data is violence.
Unfortunately, even the creator of this table felt compelled to use the qualifier “fully vaccinated.”
The fully un-vaccinated are at no meaningful risk of death either.
Those terrified of Covid are not stupid, Steve. They’re just scared.
If the news media had done its job, they wouldn’t be scared because the media would have reported the statistics honestly instead of distorting them to create hysterical fear of Covid.
But the news media piled on with the Covid hysteria because hysteria sells newspapers and drives TV ratings — the fatal weakness of the news media business model: the media stands for the public inerest until it becomes more profitable to throw tbe public under the bus.
For 99% of the Australian news media, if you question government health directives, you are a “covidiot”. Dissent is bad for business.
For what it’s worth, the Age today publishes an open letter to Andrews saying that lockdowns have to end, and that he needs to start publishing the science that his decisions are supposedly based on. Not much in itself, but possibly a sign that the elites are getting sick of this, which is the only way it’s ever going to end. It will probably have no more effect on Andrews in his Spring Street bunker, than to cause him to angrily hurl his pencil down on the map of Melbourne.
I would love to see if the odds of being hospitalised or dying of Covid UN-vaccinated are actually so much lower that they don’t even make that table…
read the UK Covid Variant Technical report.
Of those that visited emergency care, Delta cases:
Unvaccinated: 390/178k (0.2%) died
Fully Vaccinated: 679/40.5k (1.7%) died
> 21d post dose 1: 90/57.5k (0.16%) died
Read into that what you will. Don’t forget UK vax coverage is pretty high (currently 60+% fully vaccinated), so obviously vaccination keeps you out of emergency.. but by that stage, you’re much more likely to die.
Another way to view it — 679 deaths from ~60% of the population, 480 from ~40%.
Doesn’t look like vaccination is saving anybody from death.
Looks like unless you’ve bent over for the spike protein primer, you don’t even chart.
That, or you’re unperson-ed.
