According to official data published by New Zealand’s Ministry of Health, a total of 955 people have been admitted to hospital with Covid-19 between 16th Aug 21 and 22nd Feb 22. But analysis shows that 306 of those hospitalisations have occurred since the 11th Feb 22; a period of 12 days, and the Fully Vaccinated account for 82% of them.
The New Zealand Ministry of Health have been publishing a daily ‘Covid-19: Case Demographics‘ report since August 2021, and in it they confirm the number of Covid-19 cases by vaccination status and the number of Covid-19 hospitalisations by vaccination status.
But just like Public Health Scotland originally did before we exposed them, and just like the Government of Canada are doing now, the New Zealand Ministry of Health only provide a cumulative total from the 16th August 21, that they update daily.
This is extremely deceiving because data shows that the country is currently experiencing its largest wave of Covid-19 to date since the pandemic allegedly began in March 2020.
On the 25th Jan 22, New Zealand recorded a total of 58 Covid-19 cases, and the 7 day average equated to 71. But by the 22nd Feb 22, New Zealand recorded 3,183 cases, and a 7 day average of 2,262. This represents a 5,388% increase in cases recorded in a single day, and a 3,086% increase in the number of cases recorded over a 7 day average.
So now that the pandemic is clearly just beginning in New Zealand after 2 years, it would be very helpful to know the vaccination status of those being infected with Covid-19 and being hospitalised with Covid-19.
Helpful because the Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, has instructed New Zealanders to stay at home for the best part of 2 years, and enforced vaccination mandates across the country in the belief that an experimental injection will save the country from a virus that has had a 0.02% fatality rate around the world.
But thankfully, thanks to the gift of the ‘Way Back Machine‘, we’re able to take a look at the numbers published in a previous report and do some simple maths to deduce the vaccination status of this exponential rise in Covid-19 cases and the accompanying hospitalisations across New Zealand.
