While reading two interesting posts this weekend, here and here, I wondered to myself whether one of the health departments locally were also engaging in these sorts of shenanigans discussed therein. Well, it appears they were. When the numbers began to obviously resist the vaccine uber alles message, currently pervading the public health cabal and transmitted ad nauseam through the media and Big Tech, NSW Health chose to muddy the waters insofar as vaxx status of positive COVID cases from June onwards is concerned.*
As I was trying to tabulate the numbers, gathered from here, I tried to establish what exactly was to be counted as fully vaxxed, partially vaxxed, and unvaxxed. The first thing I encountered, however was four categories early on: fully vaxxed, partially vaxxed, single dose within 14 days, and unvaxxed ( a fifth emerges later on for ‘unknown’). From the week 24 report, p. 14:
In June 2021, we have: fully vaxxed (14 days post-second jab); partially vaxxed (14 days post-first jab to within 14 days post-second jab); single dose within 14 days; and, unvaxxed, no jab. Fairly clear. However, by early August (Week 28 report), there is a change to the above:
Under the new definitions, single dose last 14 days is dropped, and we are left now with fully as per the previous definition, however, partially vaxxed now appears to include all single doses within 14 days of first doses, while unvaxxed remains unchanged.
This continues until Week 36, the last week that the above definitions were used. Here is Table 8 with the numbers for the previous 4 weeks, with the last week tabulated 11 Sept 2021:
Note the trend in partially vaxxed and unvaxxed positive COVID cases. If you were promoting a vaccine uber alles campaign only to find that by 11 Sept, on your own definitions and data, your partially vaxxed cohort was 50% higher than your no vaxx chort, you were in a spot of bother. Now look at what occurs between Week 36 and Week 37. Here is table 8 for Week 37:
Just look at those massive reductions in positive cases in the partially vaxxed row and the increase in the ‘no vaxxed’ now ‘no effective dose’ row. You might be asking what in fact occurred. Now, some of the changes in the fully vaxxed row and the under investigations row indicate that further investigations bore fruit but that really doesn’t explain the magnitude of the changes we see above. Rather, they can be put down to the following:
‘No effective dose’ now includes every single dose vaxxed yet positive case now up to 21 days after their first dose! This is an extraordinary fudge. Right in the middle of the NSW lockdown, when they were trying to boost their vaxx coverage in the middle of a spike in positive COVID cases, they decided to hide the effect of this surge among the newly minted partially vaxxed by bundling the positive cases that followed in the first 21 days on the unvaxxed. This is misleading and deceptive because, as el gato malo explains, you are more susceptible to COVID at the very least in the first two weeks post-first dose, see Danish study here, where health care workers susceptibility doubled (negative efficacy) in the first two weeks post-first dose. Even Pfizer’s own trial indicated a 40% increase compared to placebo group in the first week. There is simply no reason this risk should be palmed off to the unvaxxed cohort. Whatever occurs immediately following getting vaxxed, from the first dose onwards, is part of the efficacy profile that comes with taking the vaxx. You cannot take the vaxx and ignore that you are actually more susceptible in the first two weeks than before getting vaxxed, or that you only really achieve substantial protection (50% or greater) at least a week after your second dose, or that this begins to dramatically decrease within 90 days until you are actually again in the zone of negative efficacy within 240 days:
Keep in mind, these numbers are for doubled vaxxed yet symptomatic cases of COVID. There is also a similar curve for declining efficacy re severe COVID:
This is why they will have you on boosters closer to every six months rather than yearly.
OK. That is enough for the moment. It would be interesting to learn of what discussions occurred within NSW Health and related offices that led, firstly, to the decision to shift this group, the just vaxxed group, from the ‘partially vaxxed’ cohort to the now ‘no effective dose’ cohort, as well as the decision to expand this group from 14 to 21 days post-first dose, and then to re-designate the ‘no dose’ cohort into the ‘no effective dosage’ cohort. As it stands, these changes appear to be motivated by the need to make the figures appear as good as they can for the vaccinate uber alles campaign, to hide the apparent susceptibility to COVID one has in the first few weeks of a first dose, and to do this in such a way that exaggerates the danger of remaining unvaxxed. It is misleading and deceptive. They knew this at the beginning, where the clearly distinguished each group from the other, but they have muddied the waters in order to cover the deterioration that became evident by early Sept 2021.
*This continues to the present. I see NSW Health on Monday released an In Focus: Vaccination among COVID-19 cases in the NSW Delta outbreak. They continue the sleight of hand mentioned above by continuing to report the data using the definitions re vaxx status established in mid Sept.
