No Minister

Friday’s Fulminations

There is mild moderation.  Normal rules of blogger etiquette and courtesy to blog hosts will apply, with serious transgressors being thrown out.

Unfortunately our system does not allow your comments to show up in the blog post itself.  Just in the comments section.

Visitors might consider the wisdom of using moderate language.

  1. Doom, gloom, shock and horror from Stuff

    The world’s fastest pace of spreading infections and the highest daily increase in coronavirus cases are pushing India further into a deepening and deadly health care crisis.

    India is massive – it’s the world’s second-most populous country with nearly 1.4 billion people – and its size presents extraordinary challenges to fighting Covid-19.

    Some 2.7 million vaccine doses are given daily, but that’s still less than 10 per cent of its people who’ve gotten their first shot. Overall, India has confirmed 15.9 million cases of infection, the second highest after the United States, and 184,657 deaths.

    So in the first 18 months of this “pandemic™” it has killed 0.01% of India’s population or roughly 1 person in million according to the numbers given by Stuff

    • Will Stuff report the number of deaths caused by the vaccine? Not likely. Will Stuff stop ridiculous exaggerations about the “pandemic”? Also not likely.

    • Don’t worry. Stuff is stuffed. Nobody reads it any more.

    • I’m not worried Adolf, more amused or is it bemused how the rapid mutation of the common cold, its strategy for evolutionary survival can be spun into a global crisis that can be used by our masters to transform society.

      All civilizations collapse and this crisis is a marker of the collapse of ours

      We are so timid that we obediantly stay at homeper Government fiat lest we catch a cold that we might inadvertantly spread to a hospice ward bringing about the untimely demise of a terminally ill patient

      I am laughing about the Auckland Light Rail project the latest bullet points from our esteemed transport minister

      •progressing a business case to enable decisions to be made on mode and route, and providing cost

      •estimates (which are mode and route dependent) and funding and financing options

      •partnering with Māori to identify opportunities

      •engaging with stakeholders and communities

      •determining the best form for the delivery entity.

      All of which generates years of work for chatterers, consultants and paper shufflers and doesn’t move one shovelful of dirt

      This is just expensive procrastination

      That’s equivalent to 27 deaths in Australia. Drunken Abos up north probably killed more but you must not talk about that.

  2. You only have to look at the daily Queensland report from their Ministry of Health, which seems to appear magically on my Facebook.

    Quite a detailed little summary with a whole lot of boxes with various information.

    1520 cases
    7 deaths

    For those who cant do maths:

    A 10% death rate would be 152
    A 1% death rate would be 15.2

    So half of 1% would be about 7 deaths.

    • So why do you think Queensland is performing far better than India? Could it be that Queenslanders have listened to the health experts and followed their advice?
