Not Adding Up - Ontario Edition
ICU patients down, deaths up - how come?
In the thickest of the Omicron wave in February-March 2022, when Ontario dropped the testing altogether, the wastewater analysis by Public Health Ontario indicated about 100,000-120,000 infections per day, likely 50,000 per day in April. But Global News reports, with straight face, “a total of 1,286,468 cases have been reported during the pandemic so far“. That’s just 10-days worth of the estimated daily cases in February 2022, guys! The good news? “Ontario reported 91.2 per cent of people aged 12 or older were vaccinated with two doses of the COVID-19 vaccines, while 60.1 per cent of those aged 18 or older have received a booster shot. Ontario has administered a total of 33,097,545 shots.”
We are being told though that although the jabs do not prevent the jabbed from being infected or infectious, they do prevent them from serious illness or worse. How well, you ask? Behold these graphs from the same Global News’ report:
As the jab rates go up:
, the hospitalizations pick up, but the number of patients in ICUs goes down, relative to the hospitalizations. Good? Not really, as the Covid-19 deaths somehow follow the hospitalization trends, and not the severe ICU cases. Should we therefore conclude that the jabs don’t prevent infections, infectiousness, or hospitalizations, or deaths, but they still prevent ICU admissions?
Something is rotten in the province of Ontario, it seems, and probably not only there. Just saying.
