We can bitch and complain about what's happening here but just be thankful you don't live in Russia.
Nearly a quarter of a million dead and over 8 million infections.
That's pretty bad. Russia could start looking like the USA - heading towards three quarters of a million dead and 45 million infections.
(Figures from 18/10/2021: 724,000 dead and 44,900,000 infections.)

3% mortality is very high, I imagine their hospitals are far from coping as well.

They've got a comparatively low vaccination rate. Surely just a coincidence.

I'm sure ;).

I noticed from NSW reports that although only ~20% of them are unvaccinated, they make up 80% of those in ICU.

Victoria stats are similar, but I think the unvaccinated make up more than 80%

Guywho was unvaccinated in the community for 10 days and worked as an uber driver. Selfish is the nicest way to explain this person. Don't think Qld will get away with this one.

Nice data breakdown showing the % of hospitalizations and ICU who are fully vaccinated.

It occurs to me that with the non-vaccinated people dying off at a greater rate, it automatically increases the proportion percentage that are vaccinated.

Today, I was greeted with the ABC headline
Quote
The COVID-19 shock coming for Queensland — more deaths in one week than in the pandemic thus far

This sounds really terrible until we look at Qld. deaths over the last year. ONE.

The enlightened statistical guesswork has come up with this
Quote
When the state government opens the border on December 17, regardless of whether or not the double-dose vaccination rate of the eligible population (people aged 16 years and over) hits 80 per cent, the latest modelling from QIMR Berghofer predicts we will see about 200 deaths within the first 90 days.

That is an increase from one a year to over two a day. Just think about it.


Sorry forgot the reference:
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-10-23/qld-coronavirus-covid-roadmap-analysis-reopening-death-toll-rise/100558138

I sincerely hope their guesswork modeling is not accurate.


At least it might have had one positive. There were a lot of people lining up today for jabs.

Singapore is a good example to support the modelling. 84% VAX rate. Relaxed restrictions. Cases & deaths exploded.

I was just wondering about these anti-vaxxers and their attitudes to medicine.
If they get Covid do they go to hospital to be treated with whatever they need or do they just do whatever they do normally until they either recover or die?

They treat them correctly like they always do.

I recently saw on TV News about one GP who has been telling his patients that if the won't be vaccinated, then they obviously do not want to be his patient.

My employer has been blunt with staff, no jab no job - we are a front line customer business, we are part of the Government, but his bluntness surprised even me

Didn't one of the AMA Victorian team come out last week with a release basically telling people who don't want to be vaxed to hand in their Medicare cards or something like that

I have a mate that has been stood down from his job

My grandkids Scout group has broken up due to many of the leaders refusing to be vaxed. My S.I.L. is only one of 2 vaxed people left and they can't run it on their own.  The Regional leader called a meeting with the leaders and said that their actions is not in line with Scout values, they are putting themselves above the kids and that is not what Scouts is about

I wonder if "no jab", "no job" terminations trigger redundancy payments.

OR: if some employees hope so.
