Just the facts: Coronavirus in Australia by the numbers

Just the facts: Coronavirus in Australia by the numbers. Luke Massey has collected an almost comprehensive set of up-to-date facts, such as:

The average life expectancy in Australia is 82.8. As at October 2020 the average age of death from Covid in Australia was approximately 85 and the median age at death approximately 86.

The overall case fatality rate (CFR) for Covid in Australia is approximately 1.6% (1053 out of 63,604) … This is very similar to the CFR in other developed countries including the USA, UK, France and Spain.

More than 75% … of persons diagnosed with Covid in Australia … are under 50 … the CFR for Covid in Australians aged under 50 is <0.034% (16 out of 47,897). …

Sixty-six per cent of deaths registered in Australia in 2019 were among people aged 75 or over. Approximately 66% (700 out of 1053) of Covid deaths in Australia … have occurred in aged care.

Out of 894 cases of people aged over 90 who have tested positive to Covid, 557 have survived (as at 7 September 2021). This means that even those aged over 90 have a statistical chance of over 60% of overcoming Covid.

Which suggests the average CFR for all those over 50 is about 6.4%, rising with age from very small at 50 to about 40% at 90.

Outside of aged care the overall CFR for Covid in Australia (as at 7 September 2021) is approx 0.57% (353 deaths out of 61,630 cases). …

Approximately 73% of people who have died from Covid in Australia had pre-existing chronic conditions certified on the death certificate. …

The vaccines:

In Australia eight people are confirmed to have died due to adverse reactions from the AstraZeneca Covid vaccine. As at 20 August 2021 there had also been 272 other reported deaths following receipt of AstraZeneca.

As of 2 September 2021, there had been 36 people treated in ICU for confirmed thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome following receipt of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

There have been 125 confirmed and probable cases of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia (TTS) as a result of the AstraZeneca vaccine and 99 reports of Guillain-Barre Syndrome following the AstraZeneca vaccine. To 29 August 2021, the TGA has received 61 reports of suspected Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP) following vaccination with the Astrazeneca vaccine that could be linked to vaccination and no other obvious cause was identified.

As at 20 August 2021, there had been 176 reported deaths following receipt of the Pfizer vaccine.

To 29 August 2021, 293 cases of suspected myocarditis and/or pericarditis following the Pfizer vaccination have been reported to the TGA.

The World Health Organisation states that most people diagnosed with Covid have mild to moderate symptoms and recover without medical treatment. The WHO lists common symptoms of Covid as fever, dry cough, tiredness, aches and pains, sore throat and headaches.

Australia’s Theraputic Goods Administration (TGA) now prevents Australians from taking ivermectin, as of last night. It has banned ivermectin not on health grounds, but because it insists you get a vaccine — which seem pretty harmful compared to ivermectin (see statistics above).

This ban goes beyond banning something harmful — they explicitly said the reason was to rule out alternatives, so people had to get vaccinated. They are playing politics, not health. They have broken new ground, in an authoritarian direction. We Australians just lost our freedom to choose which treatment or preventative measures we take.
