ON Monday, the new chief executive of NHS England urged people to book Covid booster jabs, saying the NHS ‘is running hot’.
Amanda Pritchard said 999 calls and A&E attendances are at record levels blaming rocketing Covid infections.
But were hospitalisations really 14 times higher than this time last year, as chief executive Ms Pritchard told ITV? NHS England later clarified the figures stating she was referring to statistics published in August, a defence which itself was found not to hold water. It lead Toby Young to accuse her of spreading inaccurate and misleading information noting that she was comparing August 2021 with August 2020 and not November 2020 to November 2021.
So to do her job for her, according to the statistics website Our World In Data, we do have a 59 per cent increase in Covid cases compared with last November, but there has been a 739 per cent decrease in Covid deaths.
The figures show that deaths in November 2020 peaked on November 27 with 520 on that day, giving a weekly average of 466. On November 7, 2021, 62 deaths were recorded, with a weekly average of 168.
So this is not the bleak picture Ms Pritchard is painting. The graph below, produced by Jamie Jenkins, former health analysis statistician for the Office of National Statistics (ONS), shows clearly that cases are not translating to deaths. Also, every case means one step closer to the coveted herd immunity the Government wants before it lets us out of this nightmare.
Unfortunately, cases of vaccine damage are not dropping. According to our drugs watchdog, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, its weekly Yellow Card adverse event reporting figures have increased again, as TCW Defending Freedom reported yesterday. They show no let-up in the deaths, which have increased by 20 on the previous month, or in adverse reactions overall, up by 23,688.
Since TCW Defending Freedom began reporting the figures back in July, 249 new fatalities have been registered, bringing the total to 1,739. That figure is likely to be just ten per cent of the actual total, with 50 per cent of fatalities being recorded for the AstraZeneca jab.
Of the 1.8 million children who have been vaccinated since August, 1,569 Yellow Card events have been reported. Thankfully, no fatalities yet. A freedom of information request to the ONS shows just nine confirmed deaths due to covid vaccination across all age ranges. This is because they only register deaths confirmed by inquest or postmortem and the inquest backlog is around 12 months.
