Dr says the COVID curve in Victoria has been utterly smashed... And says he can't find an example anywhere in the world where it's been done so successfully

The issue is that yes, low numbers of deaths are good, and going forward in Victoria this will get even smaller with only 148 total active cases . In Sweden it will get worse with ~ 4300 new cases in the past week

You mean aside from the 5,900 deaths from 100,000 cases? Perhaps because it’s summer and new cases are starting to build again ~23/9 so the delay between cases and deaths hasn’t caught up? Also 1 - 7 Oct Sweden had 19 deaths, Australia has 11. We have 2.6x population

Yep - people won’t turn up to the hospital because they’re scared of catching COVID19. How do you think this helps your argument ?

Diagnoses of cancer are often related to screening behavior (symptomatic people tend to go to the doctor). The screening numbers dipped a little but it has not been a catastrophic reduction.

But you’re actually consciously ingoring the data available. I think it would be consistent for you to continue to ignore any data that doesn’t agree with your ideological view

Ah a gotcha question. Everything causes harm including crossing the road and Lol lies. It’s about balances as populations and their ecosystems are complex.

You realize you’re quoting British stats - and The UK is a country harshly criticized for its sloppy approach to containing COVID . One interpretation could be that COVID itself causes heart disease

But we do - I’ve just listed the report released last week and recent data on mental health outcomes. Just because you don’t look doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist
