  1. Merdejiklian’s daily deaths are consistently an order of magnitude higher those of VIC, despite higher vax rate.
    Something doesn’t add up… Perhaps Merdejiklian needs to change the definition of death, too?

      • You’ve nailed it, Champ, you!
        Those 10 had it coming, you reckon?
        Disclosure: I am not vaxed (waiting for 7 weeks now, until early Oct). And I wasn’t dead either last time I checked
        (nor brain-dead like manifestly some…)
        So, whose fault would it be that so many are still not vaxed? And why are 15 million of us still in a prolonged lockdown at the end of 2021?
        But back to my original question: two states nearing the crossover in daily positive cases, but one appears 10 times more deadly. How so?
        Try to answer those questions and all may be revealed.
        Hint: Don’t go looking for an answer in Herald Sun or DT, they will throw you off.

  2. So who’s running the book on “crossover day” (the day Vic has more cases than NSW)? Will it even happen?

  3. Just back from Manly. Lovely morning and almost no-one is wearing a mask despite the large, highly visible sign at the end of The Corso. It’s clearly not being enforced and the Police presence seems non-existent. Perhaps the cops are as sick of the mask issue as the rest of us.

    • There is some research suggesting that getting vaxed after Covid makes the immune system hyper, turning it into a super immune system.
      The makes it beneficial if a person comes into contact with any new strains, like Mu.

      • Yes, might be worthwhile for those at high risk. Though one thing I’ve been very disappointed in is that no health authority has been pushing for people to improve their metabolic health. Not sure if this is because they are too woke & don’t want to offend overweight people, inactive people etc despite their being a strong correlation between these & poor covid outcomes or it’s because they are too influenced by big drug companies.

        Maybe even those that look super fit & muscular are at risk due to taking roids?
        Muscle Media 2000 that takes me back!

    • If it turns out that Ivermectin is effective in treating Covid, then the staff at the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) have taken a huge risk that they will face serious criminal charges.

      If I was working in the TGA I would be covering my backside very carefully.

      I want to know who lent on them.

        • I read that half of India is using Ivermectin and half of India has banned it.

          I’m not a specialist in statistics. Can someone tell me if that sample size is statistically significant?

  4. Common sense!

    Treasurer says NSW should ‘open up to everyone’, not just vaccinated
    By Daniella White

    NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet says the unvaccinated should enjoy the same freedoms as the rest of society once everyone has had the chance to be inoculated.

    He said he didn’t want to see a “two-tiered society” and restrictions on the unvaccinated shouldn’t be in place indefinitely.

    “We’ll shortly announce what occurs at 80 per cent [full vaccination coverage for people aged 16 and over] but ultimately my view is … once every single person in this state has had the opportunity to be vaccinated with two doses we should open up to everyone,” he said on 2GB

    “I want to see more unity. The vaccination rate in NSW has been the key to unlocking freedom.

    “It’s not the government’s role to provide freedom. People born in this country by default are free.”
