Covid data will not be published over concerns it's misrepresented by anti-vaxxers

Covid data will stop being published over concerns it's misrepresented by anti-vaxxers

Covid data will stop being published over concerns it's misrepresented by anti-vaxxers
Public Health Scotland will stop publishing data on covid deaths and hospitalisations by vaccination status - over concerns it is misrepresented by anti-vaxx campaigners.
The public health watchdog announced the change in policy in its most recent covid statistical report, saying the frequency and content of the data would be reviewed.
Instead, officials will focus on publishing more robust and complex vaccine effectiveness data.
PHS officials said significant concerns about the data being misused deliberately by anti-vaccination campaigners is behind the move.
The report published on Wednesday will be the last weekly publication to include the data on infection rates among the vaccinated and unvaccinated.
It also includes hospitalisation and death rates, broken down by the number of doses received.
Officials said two issues relating to the unvaccinated population and testing habits meant the data was no longer robust and open for misinterpretation without context.
The population data used for the unvaccinated population is based on GP registration details, meaning it includes people who are registered but may not live in Scotland.

As the vaccinated population grows, this flaw in the data becomes more pronounced due to the true number of unvaccinated people being much lower than the number used.
One PHS official said focusing on vaccine effectiveness rather than the existing ‘very simple statistics’ would result in ‘much more robust’ data for the public.
They said: “The main important point around all of the analysis is we understand whether the vaccines are working against catching it and against getting severe Covid, and that’s where the vaccine effectiveness studies come in which are a completely different methodology.
"The case rates, hospitalisation rates, the death rates are very simple statistics, whereas for the vaccine effectiveness studies we use modelling, we compare people who have tested negative to those who have tested positive and match them on their underlining co-morbidities.

Because the CDC/NIH/HHS doesn't want you or me to challenge 'the party line' (government version).

Every day, I have been looking at the new Covid case numbers in Warren County as reported by the Mississippi State Department of Health.

Hmmmmm. Lately, the new cases have been zero. Then I noticed that the state stopped reporting new cases every day. Now they report them every week.

Due to the recent decline in COVID-19 activity in the state, the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) is reducing the COVID-19 data it issues daily. These changes include fewer demographic charts and less frequent updates to a number of daily charts and reports. Most reports will now be updated weekly, and some will be discontinued on Friday.Details of report changes
  • Weekly: MSDH will publish weekly updates of county level cases and deaths and county snapshots, COVID-19 vaccination reports and data, cases and deaths by age group by week, and COVID-19 testing activity by week.
  • Monthly: MSDH will provide monthly updates of overall deaths by cause (Mississippi Provisional Death Counts), and pediatric MIS-C cases (more frequently as needed).
  • Discontinued: MSDH will discontinue publishing weekly lab testing numbers; some redundant demographic charts of sex, race and ethnicity; COVID-19 associated deaths by underlying condition; cumulative cases and deaths by county; two-week incidence maps, tables and rankings; hospital bed availability interactive map; and estimated recoveries by week.
Translation: They only want big numbers and bad news. When the numbers started running 0 to 4 every day, they started reporting weekly aggregate numbers.

Breitbart/this poll - Captain Obvious! <sarc>
Yeah, the "reasons" for imposing the restrictions and requirements were political as well, same as the the "reasons" for removing them. Actual science, using the long established meaning of the word (and not a recent politically motivated construct), has had very little to do with it.

LORD I pray that whatever Dr. Fauci has in his heart towards his fellow man returns to him seven fold, we cannot see the true measure of this man as YOU can and only YOU FATHER can see the true measure of a mans heart, if vengeance is required FATHER it belongs to YOU and only YOU, please remove those thoughts from YOUR children's hearts and minds and grant us the rest that only YOU can provide. In JESUS name I pray. AMEN.

Sigh!

Fauci has crawled out from under his rock. Again.


New mutant omicron variant XE could be most transmissible yet, WHO says

It should be called Xi after PRC, not XE. JMO.
