Hardly news to notice that the ABC is run by far-left idiots who are, no doubt at all, fully in sync with the Victorian Labor Government but really this is way over the top. Victoria records 950 COVID-19 cases and seven deaths as some restrictions ease slightly. This is the state of catastrophe they record.
Victoria has recorded 950 new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 and seven further deaths.
The deaths of seven people with COVID-19 is the worst day for fatalities of the current outbreak, and brings the number of deaths from the third wave to 36.
Two women in their 80s, a man in 80s, a woman in her 70s and woman in her 50s from the Hume local government area, and a woman in her 80s and woman in her 90s from the City of Whittlesea all died with the virus.
Not exactly cut down in their prime of life, were they?
Victoria Health Minister Foley announced 867 new COVID cases were recorded yesterday. Foley said 375 people are hospitalized, 81 people are in intensive care and 61 people are on a ventilator. Among the recorded cases “78% of the hospital cases are fully vaccinated, and 17% are partially vaccinated (1 dose).”
In other words, 95% of the COVID patients in Victoria hospitals are at least partially vaccinated….
Roughly half the population of Victoria is vaccinated but 78% of the hospitalized are vaccinated. The vaccinated in the hospital represent a higher number than the vaccinated in the population.
Meanwhile, Victoria’s repulsive Premier is hesitant about rolling out the vaxxines with the Herald-Sun front page discussing the Federal Government urging Victoria to get on with the vaxxinations while the state is taking its foot off the pedal (the footie comes first, naturally).
