The USA has passed a gloomy milestone of a million deaths due to Covid.

That is 1 in 335 people in that country.

If that was replicated in Australia we would have had around 75,000 deaths, instead the figure sits at about a tenth of that.

There is a lot to celebrate. That so many Australians were prepared to put their shoulder to the needle so to speak and to make sacrifices through the lockdowns is really inspiring and is what has set us apart form so many other nations. Hats of too to our State leaders who were prepared to make tough decisions in order to save so many lives. And also to to the Federal Government which was prepared to make the tough financial decisions that saw millions of Australians supported through this period.

We really do live in the lucky country.

Well done all.

Dear Steele,

Thank You for this positive message during these
difficult times. We certainly have a great deal to be
grateful for in this wonderful country of ours. It
just goes to show what a mighty nation we truly are and
how we do all come together in times of strife. As we did
during COVID.

It's Mother's Day today - and a good opportunity to celebrate
the things we value the most - our people, our nation, families,
and each other.

SteeleRedux,
It's one thing to feel proud to be born an Australian but another to have Australians feel proud of you !

You're not telling the full story Paul1405,

My friends drives Uber a couple days a week.
She had a woman aged 27 with 2 kids as one of his pick-ups and they were talking as he drove her to her destination.

She said her parents had nagged and nagged her to get the jab.
- Talking about the importance of being a responsible mum and for the sake of her kids.

Well as it turned out, this poor woman ended up having a stroke as a side-effect of the vaccine.

Now she can't even look after her kids.
- And that's just one of many stories.

We live on an island continent.
It's the government job to manage quarantine and look after the best interests of its citizens.

They could've shut the doors to the country, but no.
They cared more about money, than human lives.

I agree the numbers are a whole lot better than the US.
But only if you conflate HUMAN LIVES as mere numbers

And that said, from what I understand the people who have had the vaccine have much more serious cases of Covid in many instances than people who went unvaccinated.

I'm one of the unvaxxed, and I'm still alive.
I didn't even get sick once during the entire pandemic, until 2 or 3 weeks ago.
I put NO burden on the health system or cost the country a single dollar in PCR or RAT tests.
I didn't catch planes in or out of the country during the pandemic.
I wore my masks and stayed away from others as much as possible to stop the spread.
Others just ran around doing whatever the hell they wanted without any concern of the consequences to others.

My girlfriend has this T-Shirt.
On the back is a list of all the known side-effects of the vaccine.
That list is TOO BIG for anyone to read in less than 5 minutes.

It's one thing to tell A story, but next time you have a crack at it,
Maybe you should try to tell THE FULL UNBIASED STORY.

Dear Armchair Critic,

Sigh,

Firstly the woman in question did indeed suffer a stroke after a vaccine but it was widely reported and considered extremely rare.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-07-23/queensland-coronavirus-vaccination-astrazeneca-rare-blood-clot/100315488

As to your claim: ďAnd that said, from what I understand the people who have had the vaccine have much more serious cases of Covid in many instances than people who went unvaccinated.

Absolute garbage.

If it has come from your girlfriend tell her she is a tosser. This is a graph derived from real figures. You tell me who I should believe.

Hi Paul1405,
My friend that drives Uber is actually a 'he'.
I accidentally first wrote 'she' instead of 'he'.

I just spoke to my Uber friend (a family member by marriage) and showed him your link to ask if the girl in the article was the same one he picked up and he said no, it was a different girl.

So maybe there are more people with side effects than are reported in the media.

The side effects listed on my girlfriends T-Shirt actually comes from Pfizer's own reporting, I'll try to get some more info on this for you and update.

And as far as vaxxed / unvaxxed is concerned;
This is whats been told to me from family.
Some vaccinated family members (by marriage) have had much worse symptoms with COVID than others in the very same family who were unvaccinated
- And we also have a family member who worked as a nurse in the ICU of a major city hospital, although I haven't discussed COVID with her personally, but from what I understand, not everything is being reported accurately.
