ER Editor: Note the alleged % of the population who are double-vaccinated in Australia. (We have learned not to trust official vaccination rates or official anything, for that matter.) The Daily Sceptic is a very good site but doesn’t quite deal with the vaccine topic as aggressively as it should.
We highly recommend this video along with accompanying commentary by Kathy Gyngell of The Conservative Woman from Dec. 20, 2021, titled
The horrifying vaccine damage testimonies of Australia’s silenced nurses
If Omicron is So Mild, Why Are ICU Admissions Skyrocketing in Australia?
There’s little doubt that Omicron is causing milder disease in the U.K., as well as in South Africa, Denmark, and many other places.
However, what’s going on in Australia? ICU admissions have shot up as Omicron has taken hold (see above), as have deaths (see below). Bear in mind 77% of the population are double-vaccinated and it’s the middle of summer there.
Now, it could be just that there are so many more Omicron infections in the formerly ‘Zero Covid’ country than there were of previous variants, and that despite being milder, sheer numbers are causing the spike. Indeed, Delta positivity peaked at 1.3% whereas Omicron positivity is at 22.5% and still rising (see below). With an infection rate up to 20 times higher, the fact that ICU patients are still below the Delta peak (for now) suggests it is milder and there’s just a lot of it.
However, it’s one to watch to see what happens next, as Australia lacks the natural immunity from widespread previous infection that other countries benefit from.
If Omicron does turn out to be more virulent there, it may tell us something about the role natural immunity is playing in reducing the severity of the virus.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
