Here are some numbers that put the Convid-19 issue into some perspective. The source for all data is the Australian Government Department of Health website, particularly the “Department of Health, States and Territories report” stated as current to 26 September 2020.
Deaths by age group:
The percentage of deaths in the groups 70 and above is 93%, and for the groups 0 to 59 it is 3%. If the cut-off is reduced to 49 the percentage reduces to 0.7% so the question should be asked, “Why close businesses, trash civil liberties and institute a police state?”
Testing, testing – is there anyone there?:
There have been just over 7.5 million tests done in Australia to date and they have found just over 27,000 “confirmed cases”. The test used is non-Covid specific, notoriously unreliable and routinely gives false positives so the real number of actual cases may be much smaller. The national rate for a positive test is 0.36%. It is mind boggling when the cost of testing is considered. I am not sure what a test really costs but understand the test kit costs about $50.00. Allowing for the testers’ time and the analysts’ time I have chosen $100.00 per test – it’s a guess but maybe close.
|STATE||TEST NUMBERS||TEST COSTS||CONF CASES||COST/C CASE|
If anyone knows the cost please let me know and I will re-run the numbers. The national average cost to identify one case is $27, 826.00 but look at the cost for the NT, QLD and SA, highlighted in yellow in the table above. Interestingly, the lowest cost/case is in the DPRV.
Percentage of total deaths by state:
|STATE||POPULATION||DEATHS||% TOTAL DEATHS||DEATHS % POP|
The DPRV accounts for 90% of all deaths in the country. It would be interesting to see how those deaths have been attributed to Convid-19. I suspect that if anyone died within a 100 km radius of an ambulance carrying a Convid case to hospital their death was attributed to Convid-19. I wonder whether anyone who has been complicit in trashing the place has ever bothered to ask.
