Met at an equestrian centre to discuss alternate therapies and caught COVID . . . is that the Karma bus I just saw go by?

Is this total deaths or covid deaths? Again its correlation vs causation - potentially SK in lockdown to get low vax and low death.

I find the total rate of death (e.g. per 10,000) for each vaccination population, by age and for a fixed region the most compelling set of information as it holds many factors constant that otherwise can muddy the numbers you are looking at. It either confuses folks or leads to the numbers getting misused if correlations are presented that conflate these factors.

For e.g. for the crusaders - an antivax person can cherry pick the SK data and compare to LT, as much as provax can look at the general trend here. Confirmation bias is a *smile* as has been pointed out.

With that said when the rate numbers are presented, per the spreadsheet lamby shared, they are extremely compelling.

Dunno. I thought posting random stats and letting others decipher them was par for course on this thread. Or is that just for anti-vaxxers?

I believe SK is Slovakia:

Slovakia​

Slovakia declared a 90-day state of emergency and a two-week lockdown following a spike in COVID-19 cases that saw the country’s seven-day average of cases rise above 10,000.

The central European country is currently in the midst of the world’s fastest rise in infections, and the measures, which include closing all non-essential stores, as well as bars and restaurants, are meant to help the struggling healthcare system.

The decision came after president Zuzana Čaputová addressed the nation on Tuesday, saying that “Slovakia is losing the battle against COVID.” She also explained that the lockdown was needed as the healthcare staff became overworked, and the strain on the hospitals became almost unbearable.

During the two-week lockdown, people will be allowed to leave their homes only for specific reasons, such as buying groceries, travelling to work and school, or getting vaccinated.

Those still unvaccinated will be required to have a test or proof that they have had COVID-19 in order to get to work.

Just 45.3% of the 5.5 million population is fully vaccinated.

Thousands in both Czech and Slovakian capitals, Prague and Bratislava, used last week's anniversary of the 1989 anti-communist Velvet Revolution to rally against their government’s coronavirus restrictions.

You need to add ‘I find it interesting that’ to join the anti vax misinformation club.

It's death rate of Covid per 1000,000 people.

Omicron.... sounds like a Transformer character... which is apt - quick to mutate, twice the speed of Delta....

Not worried unless it has the ability to get around vaccines.

Pfizer and J & J testing all that now ...

Like several other countries, why wouldn’t Hunt err on the side of caution and suspend access to Australia from SA until they can understand it’s impact ?

I hear our vaccines are 30% effective against omicron. Combine that with waning effects and we are back to square one.

Literally square one. We need preemptive efforts to impose a proper quarantine system.

Thankfully we have the most perceptive, efficient and agile federal government we’ve had since Keating.

I find it interesting that they don't specifically mention how that antiparasitics can combat the new strain
