In the peak fortnight of the outbreak to date (25 August to 7 September), the COVID-19 case rate among 2-dose vaccinated people was 49.5 per 100,000 while in unvaccinated people it was 561 per 100,000, a more than 10-fold difference. 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.

The figures I had were 12yo and up, good effort I'd thought but even better that adult double dose vaccination rate is at 99%. That has to be the best in Australia?

Add to that , the most populous area's of W.A. are spread along the coast and population density is relatively sparse.
Its a hostile environment for Covid.

It is. Ditto the triple vaxxed rates.

Considering the reluctance in the Aboriginal communities, and the number of cookers here in WA, plus the batshit crazy Freo anti-vaxx wellness Blazing Swan kooks, a 99 percent adult vaccination rate, and 83.5 percent adult triple dosed rate is phenomenal.

Our population in WA (aged 16 and over) - is 2,114,978 people.

Of whom 2,061,475 are at least double vaxxed and around 1.8 million triple vaxxed (leaving only 50,000 or so unvaxxed).

https://www.health.gov.au/sites/def...vid-19-vaccine-rollout-update-11-may-2022.pdf

Of the 275 people currently in hospital with COVID, around 75 (27 percent) are unvaxxed with the remainder (200 or so) vaccinated.

So if you're vaccinated you have a 200 in 2,061,475 chance to wind up in Hospital with COVID. (roughly 1 in 10,000 people)

If you're unvaccinated
you have a 75 in 50,000 chance to wind up in Hospital with COVID (roughly 1 in 666 people).

Accordingly you're about 15 times more likely to wind up in Hospital or in ICU if you're unvaccinated, and if everyone was an anti-vaxx cooker, and 'freedom warrior' we would currently have 5,000 people in Hospital with COVID, instead of 275.

Cookers gonna cook.

It's actually quite the opposite.

WA is highly urbanized. 75 percent of all people in the State live in Perth or its metropolitan surrounds.

i've lived in Perth. Perth is spaced out very nicely. I could live in a shitty suburb ( Craigie ) and be within walking distance from the beach. Lots of outdoor living over summer too.
You should see the blocks of flats...oops sorry apartments going up over here, filling up with big familys.

100 more people per square km over the entire city ( pretty good where i am though ).


That article is back the front though. Perth is beating the rest.
Ask your average beijing resident if they'd rather live in their "apartment" or have a house on 1/4 acre. But apartments are "cool" right?

In Victoria , Country area's are suffering badly while everyone else here clings to the cities. Totally different to what you see in Europe, where there are lots of smaller cities and people will often commute from a nearby village.
