Fires in the west, floods in the east. Welcome to Australia as Autumn arrives. Meanwhile, in the Northern Hemisphere, Ukraine has skipped Spring and plunged into a Russian Winter of discontent.
After going back to school in New South Wales as instructed by the government, more than 3,000 people – about 2,400 students and more than 600 school workers – tested positive to Covid in the first week of term. Just 43.2% of primary school-aged children have received their FIRST dose of a coronavirus vaccine.
As if Australia needs yet another Covid-19 crisis!
Australia’s Chief Medical Officer has admitted that about half of all the infections in Australia since the start of the pandemic have occurred this year, in the past fortnight!
As we were warned, there were more than 145,000 more Covid-19 cases recorded nationally as New South Wales rapid antigen (RAT) tests are finally added to the “official” statistics (Remember the previous NSW premier, Gladys B’s declaration of “Green shoots”!). This morning NSW reported a total of 92,264 new infections, now including 61,387 RAT results (backdated to 1 January) as well as 30,877 PCR results, 2,383 hospitalisations and 22 more deaths. But you can bet the actual infection rate is a lot higher than the current NSW premier or the Pentecostal prime minister will ever acknowledge.
The Aussie state of New South Wales this morning (January 12) admitted to 34,759 additional COVID-19 cases and a record 21 more deaths in the so-called “24-hour reporting period to 8pm last night”, with 2,242 COVID victims now in hospital and 175 people in intensive care. Of course by now it is clear that the infection rate is actually much higher because these case numbers do not include rapid antigen test results [RAT].
Australia has now passed more than 1 million Covid-19 infections. Deaths will increase in the next 3-5 weeks because apparently that’s how long it takes on average to die from the virus.
There are now supposedly more than 94,000 new Covid-19 cases nationwide. Official figures suggest that around 800,000 Australians have been infected by the virus.
“Realistically”, says strategic consultant Troy Bilsborough, a former health media adviser in the Abbott and Turnbull governments, “it is probably double that; it is probably up to 2 million.”
