Not it isnt.

Report from NSW Health in September 2021

https://www.nsw.gov.au/sites/default/files/2021-09/Intensive_Care_Capacity.pdf

ICU numbers are 1/6th of what they would need to be to have a "moderate" impact.

That's great. So almost 6 months ago, Covid wasn't a major problem for Australian hospitals. Anything more recent?

China with its poorly researched and tested vaccines continues to live in a state of denial. My sympathies with the people of China who are suffering under the despotic CCP.

Yep. Poor Chinese and their useless vaccines have brought about 2; Yes, TWO deaths from coronavirus this year among the 1.4 billion people of China. I really feel sorry for them too.

The Russians have hypersonic missiles which the imperialist powers admit they have no defense against. Now they need a largely impregnable umbrella against a mass ICBM strike from USA. Then give the US, England and France an offer they can't refuse. Otherwise terror bombing of bridges, TV stations, water treatment facilities and etc. Give them a taste of their own medicine and at least 90% of the rest of the world will rejoice.

Then we move on to the tricky subject of Nazi Germany. They mostly haven't been part of Anglo-American and French terrorism because they have their own ambitions. Break it up into Bavaria, Prussia, Saxony along with Austria.

Posted in: Coronavirus cases skyrocket across Australia as Omicron spreads See in context

In democracies that permit a free press, most outlets will report on what they think is newsworthy

Been a while since I read or heard anyone talk about a "free press". I think RT is free insofar as events outside of Russia. A few smaller, what one would call "alternative media" is also free. The big capitalist conglomerates or the state funded propaganda outlets such as BBC or NHK are arguably the least free of all.

Posted in: Coronavirus cases skyrocket across Australia as Omicron spreads See in context

Technically correct but also not accurate. More than 90% are now fully vaccinated (had 2 doses) which may explain why the current surge is not resulting in more hospitalisations.

Hospitalizations are at record levels and rising fast.

Omicron is the soft variant. Let it run wild.

Only a very small % of cases are of the Omicron variant thus far. The vaccines weren't working long before the much vaunted Omicron variant.

Get vaxed, stay alive....

Refuse the vax, and have your will ready.....

I'll take my chances, thanks.

It's pretty simple....even the Red State of Texas says unvaccinated people are 20 times more likely to die from COVID-19....

https://www.dshs.texas.gov/news/releases/2021/20211108.aspx

It depends on when one was vaccinated. A fully vaccinated person who like, doesn't suffer a heart attack and die, is more protected for a month or two. In Israel the newest data suggests not more than 3. After a 4 or 5 months it seems people vaccinated with the mRNA concoctions at best are equally at risk as unvaxxed but may be more prone to infection, serious illness and death from coronavirus.

Japan "urges" the US military. "PLEASE, pretty please with a cheery on top, stop spreading diseases amongst the general population of our country.".... Pathetic! How much will the Japanese public put up with before rising up against the regime?

Posted in: Putin blames West for tensions; demands security guarantees See in context

Interested to see that, knowing that gas export is maybe 35% of Russia's GDP.

No it isn't. 35% is about the share of exports for all mineral resources including oil, gas, coal, platinum and etc. They export almost as much to China as to Europe. No doubt it would hurt the Russian economy but it would be ruinous for Europe. So in order to cool the fascist tendencies, I think Putin should cut it off. At least we should give him credit for not exporting anything above what had previously been agreed.

Posted in: Biden says it is Americans' patriotic duty to get vaccinated See in context

It worked for millions and saved them, that's a documented and indisputable fact, that has nothing to do with me and my decision for not wanting to take it.

Delusions. Infections and deaths since vaccines were rolled out is far higher than before any were available.

Posted in: Putin blames West for tensions; demands security guarantees See in context

If one were to watch the speech which is on RT's You Tube channel, Putin should know better! he speculated as to why the imperialist powers kept expanding their military presence closer to Russia, supported Islamists in the North Caucasus and etc while Russia was doing everything to have good relations. As far as letting CIA operatives inside nuclear command centers.

Of course it's due to the inexorable tendency of capitalist economy. It couldn't and won't happen any other way.

Putin needs to cut off gas to Europe immediately and see if that cools the fascist tendencies in Europe.

I was listening to a guy giving a lecture. He stated the strangest thing. Previously if one was vaccinated against this or that disease, one didn't have to worry whether the other people in the elevator or wherever were vaccinated or not because you were protected. Strange.

Working people, 95% of the population and the creator of all wealth, are going to pay for it via inflation. The superrich are going to have to pay 5% more for a carton of milk, loaf of bread and etc but they'll be compensated x ¥1million.

Posted in: Japan to speed up booster shots See in context

For example, people that are unable to provide actual scientific evidence and try to replace them with baseless videos

So an interview about the pandemic with one of the most, if not the most renowned cardiologist in USA, who is also an immunologist is "baseless" but interviews with Bill Gates on the pandemic are "must watch"....... Good boy. You are very knowledgeable on this topic.

Posted in: Japan to speed up booster shots See in context

Government and speed are not a thing in Japan. Japan is the only country that has a 'plan' to give COVID booster shots eight months after the second vaccination. Everyone else is doing it ASAP.

Perhaps they don't want the general population turned into pin cushions for experimental concoctions which have thus far proved dangerous and highly ineffective. Weird that....

Posted in: Kishida asks Pfizer CEO to speed up vaccine supply See in context

Yeah, Russia's doing just fine, hey?

I know how it is. On the one hand Anglo-Americans say, "ha ha ha, stupid Russians are anti vaxxers" and on the other they say, "ha ha ha, Sputnik V doesn't work. because many Russians are dying from coronavirus." Despite the fact Russia is doing much better than USA, Germany, France, UK.

Over 70 countries are using it including giants such as India, Brazil, Argentina, Indonesia. They along with Russia all report the same thing. Efficacy around 90% against every known variant and perfectly safe.

Posted in: Kishida asks Pfizer CEO to speed up vaccine supply See in context

What is is interesting about it? variants have appeared in places with poor vaccination and widespread contagion, it is as "interesting" as noticing how people end up with digestive infections more often when they "reject" washing their hands. It is a clear example of cause and effect that only surprises people that systematically reject science so predictable things become huge surprises for them.

How are per-capita infections and deaths in India and South African compared to the countries up to the gills in mRNA vaccines? Why have deaths in South Africa decreased from when they were using the mRNA vaccines compare to since they rejected the mRNA vaccines?

A few weeks ago a headline in a major Indian newspaper stated "India dodged a bullet rejecting the mRNA vaccines". I think that says it all.

Do the Americans have the stomach for another expensive war after Afghanistan?

A USA war against China would be similar to the US invasion and occupation of Afghanistan? That is so absurd as to be funny. The only way USA could stop China militarily is by using nukes and the Chinese counter attack would wipe out USA entirely. In the event of war between USA and China, China, all 5000 years of civilization and home of most fundamental inventions in human history, is toast. USA, all 300 years of civilization and inventor of nuclear weapons and crack cocaine is also toast. The only debate is whether is whether the rest of us would go down with them. This being so, if you have a death wish, go into the forest and quietly take care of it but don't agitate for the rest of us to go down with you.

Just like Capitalism

Which will always be the system in the US from sea to shining sea.

No, it won't. Capitalism will bring about the end of civilization if not the human race or it will be brought down by world socialist revolution (and I mean like, Lenin and Trotsky were socialists, not Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton) leading to communist society. It's a mathematical certainty.

The social and economic crisis plaguing all the so called advanced capitalist states is only going to get worse. That you have senior politicians threatening nuclear war with Russia was always inevitable. Capitalism can't go any other way.

By that argument, neither is Communism rotten, with the problem being the people, "not the system itself".

No, it's the system. The inexorable tendency of capitalist economy.

According to the UN, the number of Uyghurs over the last 10 years has not only increased but increased as a % of the population in the Xinjiang province. The CCP are the most useless perpetrators of genocide ever! Their genocide victims enjoy rapidly improving living standards and a mini population boom.

Close second, first, probably not.

Depends what one means by "first". If it's GDP, practically speaking China is already first by a long way. I know USA plays with money borrowed (at interest) from China and counts it as GDP but insofar as output, China is by far the largest.

Capitalism is incredibly rotten and well beyond redemption but as long as it continues exist, China as the dominant power can't be any worse than the open barbarism we see now. The major powers minus USA getting together and agreeing on a new reserve currency can't come soon enough.

@virusrex

Personal bias,

I agree with that. One of the most renowned cardiologists in USA wasn't comfortable with the vaccines available in USA.

desire for attention,

That's just patently untrue. He didn't even say the same. He merely said "another vaccine".

lack of preparation in a field outside of his expertise,

You can see the interview yourself. The link is still up. He says his qualifications right at the start, within the first 5 min. He is one of the most renowned cardiologists in USA but also an immunologist. Apart from the renowned medical professional and epidemiologist, Bill Gates, which 'expert' do you get your info from?

since he provide no data to justify his decision (just "videos")

The data is ample, coming out of every continent except Australasia. There is a highly effective and perfectly safe vaccine out there.

that remains exactly that, personal. And against the scientific and medical consensus. Still getting a faulty vaccine is better than getting no vaccine.

yeah, would that be the same "scientific and medial consensus" which signed off on the mRNA vaccines being 95% effective, 100% effective against serious Covid illness for at least 2 years, maybe a lifetime"?

Did anyone see the the interview of Dr. Peter McCullough by Joe Rogan? Nothing particularly new here. We already know Wall Street and Big Pharma are trying to force everyone to get the Big Pharma vaccines and pay a lot of money for each shot, whether directly or in taxes.

What I found interesting is where he say's, "I went to to India and got another vaccine." That means Sputnik V.

Moderna here. Not a single fracking side effect for me or my daughter. Right as rain. But. My wife had a rough 24 hours but nothing too terrible. Mother-in-law got Pfizer with no side effects. 3 for 4!

That's nice. Hopefully none of you suffer heart attacks anytime soon no matter your age and/or general health. None of you, 4 from 4, are protected from coronavirus unless you have already been infected.
