Covid data will not be published in Scotland over concerns it’s misrepresented by anti-vaxxers. This is what “safe and effective” looks like.
“…Public Health Scotland will stop publishing data on Covid deaths and hospitalisations by vaccination status..” Newspeak Translation: “The Vaxxed are dropping like flies….so we will stop telling you that the Vaxxed are dropping like flies”
This has been one of the best sources of real world information to determine the actual impact of vaccination on the various metrics. Obviously things were not looking good in the last few reports, so bye bye.
Corruption corrupts absolutely.
If the Vaxxed make up 90% of Covid deaths and hospitalisations…….the best strategy is to NOT TELL YOU that the vaxxed make up to 90% of Covid Deaths and hospitalisations!
They were already manipulating the data.
Officials said two issues relating to the unvaccinated population and testing habits meant the data was no longer robust and open for misinterpretation without context.
The population data used for the unvaccinated population is based on GP registration details, meaning it includes people who are registered but may not live in Scotland.
As the vaccinated population grows, this flaw in the data becomes more pronounced due to the true number of unvaccinated people being much lower than the number used.
They’re not pleased the manipulated data wasn’t being used.
“The case rates, hospitalisation rates, the death rates are very simple statistics, whereas for the vaccine effectiveness studies we use modelling, we compare people who have tested negative to those who have tested positive and match them on their underlining co-morbidities.
