The rates of COVID-19 ICU admissions or deaths peaked in the fortnight 8 September to 21 September at 0.9 per 100,000 in 2-dose vaccinated people compared to 15.6 per 100,000 in unvaccinated people, a greater than 16-fold difference.

Of course…

Not to worry, case numbers are down, hospitalisations are down, and that's with bugger all triple vaxxed and hardly any under 12s vaxxed. Been positive signs around this for ages now.

So really we end up with close to six months from now getting everyone up to date with the correct vaccine & all it’ll take is another variant to come along and it’s back to square one.

We're only back to square one if some freakishly virulent & infectious variant sudden appears & evades our current immune status. Then we'd all BeF'd!!

We won't be f*d in WA, coz the border will stay shut and we'll lock down coz Omicron is already here, this new strain other strain won't be coming in.

You've timed it well. The current belief is the booster gives you ten weeks of significantly reduced chance of catching it. The growth is exponential, but it'll still be small case numbers in a week. It needs time to keep doubling. Even if it doubles four times in a week - it'll still be less than 100 a day. That's when the numbers will start to take off.
One hundred new cases per day is when it really launches into the sky - it's a critical mass with the omicron strain. At that level you are letting it rip whether you like it or not - it's like putting on the brakes at 110 km/h when less than 50 metres away from an obstacle.

Killing the dead horse which is ivermectin in COVID - from www.emrap.org

The Ivermectin Cautionary Tale
Anand Swaminathan and Gideon Meyerowitz-Katz
  • Falsified Data Issues
    • Surgisphere is a healthcare analytics company with a very questionable past. They created data sets that were used by researchers to do preliminary COVID work.
    • These studies were published in the Lancet and New England Journal of Medicine but later had to be retracted. It is not clear if these data sets were completely fabricated.
    • One study based on this data set suggested a benefit to Ivermectin; it was almost certainly false but many people and countries had already instituted its use.
    • A number of meta-analyses have included these papers and have found a benefit to ivermectin.
  • The Observational Data
    • Comparing the rates of COVID-19 in two countries and inferring a benefit of ivermectin due to lower rates in countries administering the drug as part of a mass drug administration program (eg, for river blindness) is extremely dangerous and open to enormous bias.
    • In some developing countries where this occurs, almost no COVID-19 testing is done so it appears that there are very few COVID-19 cases when there are in fact huge numbers.
      • For example, Tanzania has been part of a mass drug administration with ivermectin but officially reported zero cases of COVID.
      • In Zambia, a morgue study noted a death rate from COVID-19 ten times the officially reported number.
    • During the COVID-19 pandemic, most ivermectin mass drug administration had ceased in these countries.
  • The Retracted “Elgazzar” Study
    • This was an Egyptian study of health care workers which was retracted while still in pre-print form without a defense of the data presented.
    • The study contained a plagiarized introduction and methods section, used incorrect statistics, and the data presented was full of inconsistencies that strongly suggest that it was falsified.
  • The TOGETHER Study
    • This study of 1300 patients found no reduction in admission and no statistical reduction in death.
  • The “Zoni” Group
    • This study showed no benefit in a 500 patient randomized prevention study.
  • Malaysia Health Study group
    • This was a 500 patient randomized trial that showed no benefit.
PERSPECTIVES
  • The best evidence is that ivermectin does not work against COVID-19. More studies are ongoing.
