"Fully Vaccinated Australians In Hospital for COVID-19 Surpass Unvaccinated"
Firstly, this headline in The Epoch Times is incorrect when it claims that the number fully vaccinated Australians requiring hospital admission for COVID-19 exceeds those who are unvaccinated. The statistics that this article goes on to quote are not for the entire country, but for the state of New South Wales only.
Furthermore, a reader could be further misled if they failed to read this article in its entirety - particularly the following:
However, based on the data presented, unvaccinated individuals appear to be six times more likely to be hospitalised and nearly 13 times more likely to be sent to ICU than those who are fully vaccinated.
It is true that in NSW, 50.5% of those admitted into Intensive Care for COVID-19 are fully vaccinated. However, those vaccinated make up 93% of the eligible population.
This contrasts with the 7% of the eligible population who are not vaccinated - but whom still comprise 49.1% of the COVID-19 admissions into Intensive Care. In other words, a small minority of the population is making up almost half of those requiring Intensive Care treatment for COVID-19.
"Statistics do not lie". Careful with that one! Statistics are only meaningful if they are interpreted correctly (speaking here as somebody who has spent much of their working life involved in the field of Industrial Measurements).
