We are dealing with totalitarian mentalities which must always lurk behind everyone who runs for political office. They want not just to manage our affairs, but to run our lives. There is no longer anything to worry about, and the data are even more stark by the day. But was in an argument this afternoon – online of course – over the data. In the end, I went looking for the numbers, and this is what I found.
This was published by the ABC in Feb 2020 so “last year” in the story refers to 2019. Flu season which struck down 310,000 Australians ‘worst on record’ due to early outbreaks. The final lines:
“While 2019 saw the highest number of influenza cases across the country, 2017 still holds the record for the highest number of flu-related deaths, with over 1,100 cases.”
Last year there were over 900 influenza linked deaths in Australia.“
And then there was this from the ABS, not the ABC this time.
Australia’s leading causes of death, 2018
Influenza and pneumonia (J09-J18)
Median age: 89.3
The number of deaths from the Corona Virus will possibly never reach 100 and will certainly never reach 1000.
We are in the midst of a gigantic fraud and a burst of the most disgusting hysteria. We are not led by leaders but by hysterics and conmen who love power and love to tell everyone else what to do. They have no business being leaders in a free society. First they do everything they can to scare as many people as possible and then invent a near-on-totalitarian system to protect us from what is turning out to be for virtually all of us virtually nothing at all.
