*11 **Right to refuse to undergo medical treatment*

Everyone has the right to refuse to undergo any medical treatment.

www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/1990/0109/latest/whole.html#DLM225509

New Zealand Bill of Rights Act, 1990.

Yes, this is true, but it doesn't mean there are not consequences. For instance, you have to be vaccinated for certain jobs like the police or armed forces, or when working with children. You can chose not to, but then you can't join then those professions. According to you, this should not be allowed.

Can you guarantee that won't be me?

LOL, why do I get the feeling a 0.00001 percent chance of something happening would be perfectly acceptable to you for anything else, just not the vaccine. Let's not forget you are already vaccinated against things like chicken pox and the measles - your parents had to otherwise you would not be allowed into a public school. Are you angry them as well?

It's also proven to have serious side effects and health problems for a small amount of people.

yes, about 0.00001 percent. Let's look at Japan as an example - last time I heard there were about 5 cases reported of death that may or may not be linked to the vaccine. Let's be generous though and say the number is 100 even though it's not. Thats less than 0.0001 percent. More people as a percentage die from the flu vaccine each yeah.

There's no sliding scale. Can you threaten someone with termination if they don't get a certain cosmetic surgery?

what?

If it has "proven safe", give it official FDA approval, and not a temporary Emergency Use Authorization, excempting the manufacturers from any liability. (And no, before you mention the talking point, the available Pfizer does NOT have FDA approval.)

so you think the vaccine is unsafe? After hundreds of millions (actually probably well over 1 billion) of people getting vaccinated and 99.999% of people suffering no or little side effects that the vaccine is not safe? I can just imagine if the FDA gave the vaccines gave full approval tomorrow, you would say that they can't be trusted, or that they were rushing - no matter what they do they can't win with some folks.

...preventing for a few months, after which efficacy drops and you need the next "booster". And the difference in hospitalization is a relevant argument for high-risk groups, not for indiscriminate injection of an entire population.

efficacy from dying and getting seriously ill has proven to be very long lasting - I think you are referring to efficacy from catching the virus which does wane over time

But I'm not sure you can then take someone's job from them if they don't want to undertake a medical procedure. It's not like mandating a uniform, or a way to address customers.

If the 10 second medical procedure has proven safe (it has) and effective (it has) at preventing hundreds of thousands of people getting seriously sick or dying, the question is why wouldn't you do it? It's not enough to say "cos it's my right" when dealing with a communicable disease. You have to come up with a better reason than that.

I walked past my local vaccination centre today and it was jam packed of people getting their boosters. The vast majority of NZers want to be vaccinated.

This protest is from a tiny minority of NZers doing a copycat of Canada.

was going to say more or less the same thing - is was few hundred folks, nothing major at all.

Correct. I never said it was the flu? I made a general statement.

The health ministry reported this week that deaths in Japan had dropped by more than 9,300 in 2020 to around 1.4 million.

Those are deaths due to anything (any disease/accidents) - not exclusively the flu.

@Expotential Witness

I learned yesterday 1.4 million people in Japan die each year. So, yes. Maybe you have been living in another world.

according to statisa.com, in 2019, 3575 people died from the flu in Japan.

just a small piece of advice - if you are just going to make up numbers, at least try and make them semi-believable.

Posted in: ‘Take back life’: More nations ease coronavirus restrictions See in context

Of the 14.445 new patients, 6,506 had received two coronavirus vaccine shots, 112 one shot, and 3.759 were unvaccinated.".

Please think before you post - if 80% os the population is vaccinated with 2 shots , and omicron is proven to evade those 2 shots, then of course the majority of those testing positive will be vaccinated - its simple statistics. What you should be pointing out, is that despite only 20% of the population still not being vaccinated, they still make up a very large portion of those being testing positive.

Just today, NZ announced they will do away with MIQ for vaccinated folks. From later this month, kiwi's in Australia will be able to go home, and from March, kiwi's anywhere will be able to go home - self isolation is still required, but by July at the latest (more likely May/June) that will be done away with as well and anybody with a valid visa and who is vaccinated be able to travel to NZ just as before.

People who don't want the vaccine understand the risks on both ends of the equation....

if they understand the risk, why do many of them beg for a nurse to vaccinate them just before being intubated, not understanding it's too late for that?.

It’s pretty galling to see the “Well done Denmark” comments from posters here who have never at any stage supported the vaccines, when Denmark is relying on the high percentage of vaccinated people in the country for the success of this move. Do you anti-vaxxers have any idea of the hypocrisy of your position?

No, they honestly cannot - it's quite unbelievable but it seems they truly cannot even when it's staring them in the face.

I assume those in hospital are even more than Tokyo admits, since they only count those in ICU and on respirator.

Yes, there was that quote today by a doctor (reported in JT as well) saying he is visiting patients at home who clearly should be at hospital, who need oxygen, but were denied a bed. Of course Kishida/Koike are never asked questions regarding things like this - thats not allowed.

Omicron will be well gone by the time most people get their boosters.

Well, a childish response for sure, but Tsitsipas's father should shut up and stop coaching his son from the stands - it is not allowed and he clearly does it as has been noted by other players.

only 2% of people in Africa are over 70, in addition, the vast majority (70%) of Africans do not live in what could be described as a city - they live in more rural/village outdoor type settings where the virus is less likely to spread. And of course they are just more exposed to pathogens from the environment when young as to compared to a city person.

Less than 1% of unvaccinated need hospitalisation and that includes all ages, all those with serious health health issues including the morbidly obese.

This entire statement is fact free.

will probably top out at 15k/16k as the testing has topped out at 35k. You just have to look at TV to see the huge lines of people wanting to get tested to see that 35k testing cap set by Koike is ridiculously low.

@Monty,

out of interest, which country is that?

People live with cancer, diabetes, hypertension, renal failure, heart failure, AIDS and all kinds of additional problems.

With the exception of AIDS (which you can now live with no problem), none of what you have listed is contagious.

At least compare apples with apples.

@BlackflagCitizen

the fact that a doctor would refuse to test for covid for a child who was in close contact with a confirmed case, and who was themselves experiencing some symptoms is just scandalous. I cannot believe that this is allowed to happen in this country.

...a nearby resident called police at around 10:50 a.m. and said there was a suitcase on the ground beneath a bridge near the 14th hole

so the guy saw a suitcase under a bridge and decided it was worthy of calling the police?

Based on these numbers, we are headed way way higher. Overseas it took Omicron around 6-7 weeks to peak and we are not even half way in Japan.

It's an average of 26000 test per day over the last 3 days - about double compared to the last waves.
