light blue line indicates hospitalisations for unvaccinated, the
light red for the vaccinated. These are rates per 100,000 population
so they are strictly comparable. The daily volatility is due partly
to delays in collection of data from around the country. For this
reason the long term trends are calculated in thick blue and red
lines respectively. You can clearly see the unvaccinated are becoming
progressively less likely to be hospitalized with Covid, whilst the
rates among the vaccinated remain more or less constant.
graph shows that the unvaccinated are gaining a measure of herd
immunity as more and more of them catch Omicron and recover, but why
aren’t we seeing a similar result for the vaccinated? The answer
lies in something termed immune imprinting.
published a few days ago in the journal Science investigated 750
triple vaccinated individuals and found that vaccination combined
with their various prior infection or immunity histories had
conferred some protection against earlier Covid variants but often
left them vulnerable to subsequent variants, especially the B.5
Ways the Government Controls the Covid Narrative
how is it possible for Dr Town to claim that the unvaccinated are not
only worse off than the vaccinated but 6 times worse off, when
official figures show it is the vaccinated who are actually worse
Distortion of population data
Ministry of Health overestimates the percentage of vaccinated
individuals and undercounts the number of unvaccinated individuals.
The Ministry Health says that in any group of 100 people 97 are
vaccinated and 3 are unvaccinated. The true ratio is closer to 85 vs
15. The effect of this is simple. Undercounting the unvaccinated
artificially inflates their rate of hospitalisation.
Poor definition of unvaccinated status
Ministry of Health counts all people who have had just one jab as
unvaccinated. No one is counted as vaccinated who received their jab
less than seven days ago. So for example if a person catches Covid
during the week after vaccination and then dies four weeks later, or
they have only had one jab, they are counted as an unvaccinated Covid
death. This also artificially inflates rates for the unvaccinated,
and conversely hides hospitalisations and deaths among the
Amalgamation of historic Covid figures
Ministry of Health adds all historic Covid data together, this
confuses the current Omicron situation with past variants and makes
the short lived effect of vaccination look more significant. It also
ignores the impact of herd immunity among the unvaccinated.
Lack of peer review
government and their advisors are quoting figures out of the context
of peer review. Dr. Town used the term preliminary
to describe his figures. The government is ignoring the
results of carefully performed published work that has gone through
scientific peer review in favour of its own in-house data which as we
have seen is biased by poor reporting practices.
Lack of debate
is no provision at press conferences or in the media for genuine
debate of government data.
Control of media
government is continuing to provide significant funding to media to
support Covid coverage which is favourable to the government’s
position. It surely cannot escape our notice that such cosy
arrangements are alien to our conception of a free and honest
Funding of fake science
government funds Te Punaha Matatini to issue unreviewed science
papers which have grossly overestimated the impact of Covid. These
papers have for example labelled the established scientific concept
of herd immunity as a conspiracy theory.
Discouraging social communication
government has informed people that social communication has been
hijacked by conspiracy theorists, thereby reducing the opportunity
for and trust of peer to peer communication essential for a lawful
Failure to publish key data
departments and heart specialists have been overwhelmed with an
unprecedented surge in cardiac cases which an Israeli report
shows are related to vaccination but not to prior covid infection.
The government has failed to make these facts public. Worse, the
government and the media have tried to relabel
such sudden cardiac problems as due to other causes.
Coercion of medical professionals to remain silent
professionals wishing to speak up and voice concerns face loss of
their profession and media vilification if they do so.
Sun is Trying to Break Through the Clouds
an article by the NZ Herald science reporter Jamie Morton said:

at causing breakthrough infections among vaccinated and boosted
people – likely

If you remove these, as our government has done, you don’t have
science, you have something quite different—mass deception.
