Stunning Covid data from Denmark
But not for the reason you've been told; the story is vaccine failure, not Omicron
The Danes are now publishing extremely detailed daily data about Covid cases and hospitalizations - not just about Omicron, but all Covid variants.
And, in news that will surprise precisely no one who has been alive the last two years, they paint a picture entirely different than what the media claims.
Omicron - which continues to appear significantly less dangerous though more transmissible than earlier variants of Covid - has been used as a cover for vaccine failure.
Most new Covid cases in Denmark occur in people who are vaccinated or boosted - and that is true for both Omicron and earlier variants. More than 76 percent of non-Omicron Covid infections in Denmark are in vaccinated people, along with about 90 percent of Omicron infections.
Further, only 25 of the 561 people currently hospitalized in Denmark for Covid have the Omicron variant. The Danes do not provide an exact number for patients in intensive care with Omicron, saying only that it is fewer than five.
Perhaps the most stunning fact about Omicron and Denmark is that its rise actually parallels a marked slowdown in the growth of Danish hospitalizations and intensive care patients. Those rose roughly fivefold between mid-October and late November, as the Danes left the happy vaccine valley. Since then they have barely budged, rising about 20 percent.
Danish Covid hospitalizations over the last three months: note that the rise predates Omicron.
The Danish data also show that people with Omicron are both less likely to be hospitalized than those with other variants and released from the hospital much more quickly - in line with what South African health authorities have reported.
On Friday, for example, the Danes reported that the total number of hospital patients with Omicron since the epidemic began reached 77, up by 20 patients from Thursday.
But the number of Omicron patients currently hospitalized rose only by eight between Thursday and Friday, from 17 to 25. Thus 12 out of the 17 Omicron patients on Thursday appear to have been released overnight.
Compared to Monday’s report, the trend is even more clear. The number of Omicron cases has roughly tripled, but the number of people hospitalized has barely budged, from 14 to 25.
About the only reason for concern in any of the Danish data is that Omicron still appears to be preferentially infecting younger people - though not people under 15, who are more likely to be unvaccinated.
Overall, though, the figures out of Denmark largely back those from South Africa - and make clear that the reason that Europe has seen a massive rise in cases and hospitalizations this fall has nothing to do with Omicron and everything to do with vaccine failure.
The scamdemic was a horrible thing, and every single freaking thing done in its name has been much more horrible. The fact people keep accepting it as an excuse for unacceptable things tells me more about a big chunk of humanity than I ever wanted to know.
As soon as someone tries to use the shamdemic to justify yet another atrocity inflicted on us to destroy even more of our enconomy, rights, and liberties (which is all but guaranteed anytime someone invokes COVID), call them what they really are: a tyrant sympathizer and abettor.
Remember, the entire purpose behind the plandemic is to instill a sense of panic and fear in the population in order to get them to act in a certain manner, so that said...
Anytime someone tries to invoke the flim-flamdemic in order to pass some new law or legislation, they are doing the work of a tyrant.
Anytime someone tries to use the crapdemic to keep people afraid and attempts to justify what is being done in order to 'protect the people', they are doing the work of a tyrant.
Anytime someone tries to claim that 'combating the virus' or 'protecting the world from a cold' justifies trampling all over basic constitutional rights and the free will of free men in a free society, they are doing the work of a tyrant.
If the testing stops the scam-demic stops. It's all about the test. Omicron or not, in most places hospitalization, ICU, death numbers are just people who are in those categories but just happen to test positive. The vaccines fail too because the entire disease is bullshit. How can you make a vaccine for something that is test-based hysteria. The only reason the vaccines "worked" for a while was reporting bias, by saying illness was Covid if unvaxxed, and another Dx is vaxxed. But now that almost all are vaxxed, the selection bias has worn out. Bullshit vax for bullshit disease.
