Africa and COVID

My wife told me she saw a government minister from Rwanda speak at the WEF.  He bragged that Rwanda mandated vaccines and that is why they had such success.  When a politician claims success it either happened despite what they did or it is complete fiction.  I quickly pulled a comparison with Nigeria because I knew Nigeria had a very low vaccination rate.  Rwanda with their mandate achieved 68% while Nigeria was only 13%.  The comparison is below.

Rwanda does not compare very well with Nigeria but Nigeria could be the anomaly so I decided to take the time and look at every African country.  Africa is interesting because the populations is very young.  With or without vaccines Africa would not have much trouble with COVID.  Africa is also very poor and most countries could not afford to do large vaccination programs.  Burundi has vaccinated only 0.1% of their population while the Seychelles are at 86%.

I had to get the vaccinations from a different source than the cases and deaths so I put them together in an excel sheet.  I Plotted vaccination rate against cases and deaths and used excel to fit a trend line.  Here is what I got.

It seems pretty clear to me.  Increasing vaccination leads to increasing infections and deaths.  This is just COID deaths, it does not include vaccine deaths which as we have seen in the west can be as high as the COVID deaths.  Forcing people to be vaccinated is nothing to brag about unless your goal is to kill.

You can Run but you can’t Hide

In Previous post I have discussed how small island states that can control their borders had success controlling infections.  Unfortunately their success can only ever be temporary.  There simply is no way to keep an airborne virus out.  That was the case with New Zealand and now we are seeing the same thing in Taiwan where 60% of the population has been boosted.

In a span of only a few days 8% of Taiwanese have been infected.

Taiwan closed their borders very quickly in the spring of 2020.  The Taiwanese have a healthy distrust of China so they did not believe the Chinese when they claimed no human to human transmission.  When China said don’t worry the Taiwanese did the opposite.  They even tried to warn the rest of the world but everyone chose to believe Communist China primarily because most western leaders are closet communists.

Initially it looked like the Taiwanese approach worked and Taiwan was held up as a shining example of how effective Non Pharmaceutical Interventions (NPI) could be.  All you had to do was shut everything off and you would be safe.  The reality is that whether or not you trust China makes no difference.  You can run but you can’t hide.  All Taiwan did was postpone the inevitable and that came at the cost of economic destruction.

Lockdowns (NPIs), Vaccines and vaccine boosters do not work.  How many more example do you need?  I can, however think of one NPI that I think we should try.  We could sacrifice politicians to the COVID gods.  We would still have COVID but far fewer problems overall and a win is a win, right?

Wake up and smell the Obvious

Even when the Media does not hide the truth they still find a way to skew it.  This New York Times columnist makes 2 very important observations.  More seniors died of Omicron than Delta


And in 2021 younger people began to die from COVID more frequently.

 “In 2021, you see the mortality impact of the pandemic shift younger,” said Ridhi Kashyap, a lead author of that study and a demographer at the University of Oxford.

Of course the answer is boosters; the answer is always more boosters.  It is hard to tell if this Times reporter is cognitively impaired or just a good foot soldier march towards the great reset and depopulation.  In the event that he is just stupid I will re-phrase his findings for him in a way he might understand.

  1. After vaccinating nearly 100% of all seniors, more of them died to a milder version of the virus.
  2. Prior to vaccinations younger people were not dying from this virus.

It should be apparent by now that the vaccines made things worse not better.  More of something that simple did not work is a waste of time.  More of something that makes things worse is incredibly stupid.  Unfortunately politicians specialize in incredibly stupid.  The EU is already planning a return of boosters and digital vaccination records.

This is not over and it definitely is not about a virus.
