The following are numbers related to Covid in South Africa. The article the numbers come from is here.
But I want to begin by reiterating a point that many here-a-bouts are determined to push back on. So, from the link (emphasis added)-
For triage purposes, Netcare’s policy is to test all admitted patients for COVID-19 with reverse transcriptase–polymerase chain reaction or, from wave 2 onward, a rapid antigen test obtained from a nasopharyngeal swab. All patients hospitalized with a positive COVID-19 result were included
And I’ll add this from Saint Fauci speaking on MSNBC about child hospitalisation numbers in the USA-
St. Fauci acknowledges what others were censored for saying:
Many children enter hospitals for reasons unrelated to Covid like broken bones but are registered as Covid hospitalizations simply because they got a + PCR test, thereby inflating the numbers. pic.twitter.com/azB5DGkGhj

…but the other important thing is that if you look at the children who are hospitalised, many of them are hospitalised with Covid, as opposed to because of Covid. And what we mean by that, if a child goes in the hospital, they automatically get tested for Covid, and they get counted as a Covid hospitalised individual when in fact they may go in for a broken leg, or appendicitis, or something like that. So it’s over counting the number of children who are called hospitalised with Covid as opposed to because of Covid.
Okay. Now that’s out of the way, here are the figures and numbers from Netcare, comparing the different Covid waves in South Africa.
So, just to be abundantly clear, all of the above figures are for patients in hospital for any reason who have returned a +ve test for Covid, and who are receiving various levels of care for any condition and have tested +ve for Covid.
In spite of the above, and in spite of that same basic pattern repeating across various countries as Omicron displaces the far more harmful Delta ( some might suggest Omicron would get FDA approval if only someone would bang it into a syringe) , I suspect Covidian Cultists will reach for the petrol canister and the matches just to prove they were, and are correct to be running around like their hair’s on fire.
