  1. My apologies. In my defence I have posted this before, but anyway let's try that again.
  2. That's actually a good question. It would possibly be something that would need to be screened for in the initial selection of the survey group.
  3. Don't forget that the Napoleonic Wars will still most likely happen in this universe so it's entirely possible that Britain might support or at least acquiesce to the annexation of a large swathe of overseas French territory.
  4. Since we're back on the Indian horse paste thing yet again, perhaps out resident stats guru can answer this one: Here are graphs showing the infection rates for Uttar Pradesh and several of its neighboring states. Can you identify from the graphs which one is the state that made widespread use of ivermectin to treat its population and which ones did not?
  5. What the hell are you even talking about? If you want to compare the infection rate between unvaccinated and vaccinated people, the best way to do it is with a randomised control trial. If you remember your basic high school science, in a scientific investigation it is important to try to eliminate all variables other than the one you're trying to study otherwise it is impossible to determine the cause of an observed effect. In the case of drug or vaccine studies, what you ideally want to do is to have two groups of people, as close to identical as it is possible to make them, and to give one group the treatment and the other a placebo. It is then possible to compare relative infection rates without introducing possible bias into the results. As I have pointed out I think 4 times now, the report that the New World Order site you linked to got its graph from makes the same point.
  6. Also, if limited data is available, another option is a systematic review. Here's a good example. https://www.cochranelibrary.com/cdsr/doi/10.1002/14651858.CD015017.pub2/full
  7. Well, that's how you do it. Here's an example. https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/nejmoa2034577
  8. Heaven forbid that doctors might actually be required to practice evidence based medicine.
  9. I can recommend a couple of places actually.
  10. Hospital admissions in New South Wales are the lowest they've been since August despite lockdown restrictions continuing to be eased. 92.1% of all eligible adults in the state have now received at least one does of vaccine. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-10-19/nsw-records-273-covid-19-cases-and-four-deaths/100549564
  11. Come on over! We need somebody to pick fruit as most of the locals can't be arsed.
  12. Yep. It even says so in the report. Once again: It's also worth drawing attention to the fact that those two bars are not comparing like with like. It's likely that vulnerable people or people with poor health will be over represented in the vaccinated group and also that people who are still not vaccinated are also probably less likely to come forward for a covid test. There's a table on page 7 which summarizes data from proper, controlled vaccine studies.
  13. On the notion that "Big Pharma" or government are somehow "gatekeeping" or preventing drugs from being prescribed that they somehow cannot profit from: The Oxford University PRINCIPLE study (and yes that's the same Oxford University behind the Oxford Astrazenica vaccine) has examined a number of different cheap, readily available drugs as possible treatments for covid-19. This study is currently investigating Ivermectin, among others. An example of a drug that they have identified as having actual clinical evidence to support its efficacy is the steroid budesonide, a medication more commonly used to teat asthma. The study found it was effective in treating symptoms of covid-19 and could reduce both the severity and the duration of a covid-19 infection. source: https://www.phc.ox.ac.uk/research/covid-19/projects/principle-trial The NHS now recommends the selected use of budesonide in treating covid-19.

  14. Sorry Champ, that's not how that data set has been set up. The title of the graph was 'Rates (per 100,000) by vaccination status from week 37 to week 40 2021". This means that they have taken the number of infections, divided it by, presumably, the number of people in the adult population of the UK and multiplied by 100,000. They have then further sorted it by grouping the data into age groups and vaccination status. It even points this out in the original source document on page 12. tl;dr, the black bar for the 40-49 age group should be about 3 times higher than the grey one because there are about 3 times as many people in that group. It's not, and the likely explanation for this is that the vaccine is reducing the rates of infection. On the subject of confirmation bias, the article you linked to on the New World Order Report site has rather skipped over some other graphs from the UK Health Security Agency's report, although I will say I did enjoy their video piece "William Shatner Tells the World to Prepare for Mass Death". Here they are:
