Because the official figures – censoriously excluded from these reports – are embarrassing:
Three people were aged in their 40s, five people were aged in their 60s, five people were aged in their 70s, 11 people are in their 80s and five people are in their 90s.
Of the 29 people who died; 19 people were vaccinated against COVID-19 and 10 people were not vaccinated.
I’m no editor but I would have thought 65.5 per cent of decedents being ‘fully vaccinated’ – on the worst day of the pandemic in Australia’s most populous state – is a big story. Much bigger than the disco drama being frenziedly stoked today for obvious reasons.
