Just how stupid are these people terrorised by Covid. This stupid!
Since the info above is clear and visible to me but not necessarily 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.
Might add a few comments from the Instapundit post just for emphasis.
I don’t care any more, and I didn’t care much all those eons ago that this madness started. The odds of dying of this seem to me SMALL unless you are already seriously compromised and hanging by one or more threads anyway. Isn’t that right ? BUT the odds that things like passports and State coercion set the stage for a more tyrannical society filled with panicked ,fearful, non-reasoning , obiedient, and judgemental humans seem very large indeed. I’ll take Covid any day over ANY of this ‘helping’ lunacy. And I can because ‘they’ have but little hold on me. But they have a large hold on YOU, if you need to work or learn or just be social with others.
At this point there are no numbers to justify not going back to normal. We are where we are because a loud minority wants to continue the panic and the totalitarians are happy to make use of the useful idiots to grab power. Our rights are being infringed for the sake of someone else feeling safe and I’m sick to death of these ninnies who are still so invested in being afraid of something almost 2 years later. There is no logic, no reason, no facts to back anything from saying “Carry on with your lives. This is as good as it gets.” except that people are invested in feeling anxious and wrapping themselves up in it like a blanket. They hate everyone who isn’t willing to act as cowardly as they are.
CDC– underreporting breakthroughs. Just like that, being asymptomatic – or having only minor symptoms – will no longer count as a “Covid case” but only if you’ve been vaccinated:
‘As of May 1, 2021, CDC transitioned from monitoring all reported vaccine breakthrough cases to focus on identifying and investigating only hospitalized or fatal cases due to any cause. This shift will help maximize the quality of the data collected on cases of greatest clinical and public health importance. Previous case counts, which were last updated on April 26, 2021, are available for reference only and will not be updated moving forward.’
