Meanwhile, Deaths +14%, Natural Births -28%, Disability +37.5%, According to Official Numbers from 1 July 2022-30 June 2023
Here’s narrative reporting by Guy Hatchard, which I’ve excerpted (and added emphases):
There were 38,442 deaths among all ages for July 2022-June 2023 compared to 33,753 deaths in the 2018/19 comparable period. This is an increase of 4,689 deaths (up 14%) which occurred at a rate of 90 excess deaths per week.
Working age people were also affected. Deaths among 15 to 64 year olds were up by 6%. Figures released by the Household Labour Force Survey reports rates of disability sufficient to preclude joining the workforce among this age group has increased by 37.5% over the same period and now stands at 14.3% of the workforce. That is huge. Why?
Alarmingly, natural live birth increase (births minus deaths) fell from 26,500 in 2018/19 to 19,185 in 2022/23 a decrease of 7,400 or 28%. This is an absolutely unprecedented drop. Nothing even remotely like this has been recorded previously.
Here is what my colleague Peter F. Mayer, who runs my German-language homebase TKP.at, concluded upon reading Guy Hatchard’s reporting (my translation and emphases):
Due to its island location, New Zealand was and is an ideal test laboratory for the WHO and the pharmaceutical and health industries that dominates it to evaluate the ‘success’ of the measures. The numbers are on the table. What conclusions are drawn? course correction? Or keep it up and do more of the same?
Indeed, it continues with more intensity, so we must conclude that the results are expected and desired.
Shouldn’t the government at least fake ignorance or condescending dismissal? (That’s what the Covidistan politicos and journos are doing, with ‘the experts’ silent for once, except for the impending return of autumn vaccination drives.)
Oh, lest I forget, Ms. Ardern has not only resigned but also left the country to do whatever for money at Harvard University where she has been (source)
appointed to dual fellowships at Harvard Kennedy School—as 2023 Angelopoulos Global Public Leaders Fellow and as a Hauser Leader in the School’s Center for Public Leadership…
‘Jacinda Ardern showed the world strong and empathetic political leadership’, Elmendorf said. ‘She earned respect far beyond the shores of her country, and she will bring important insights for our students and will generate vital conversations about the public policy choices facing leaders at all levels.’
Boilerplate drivel, I’d say. Perhaps Ms. Ardern was smarter than most European politicos who increasingly desperately try to cling to power.
How does the above record compare?
Well, according to the NZ War Graves Project, not very well. They claim:
Our database contains the details of 90% of the New Zealand servicemen and servicewomen who died in conflict or in peace-keeping operations since the Anglo-Boer war (1899-1902). This includes the major conflicts of the 20th century, World War I and World War II.
That database includes 31,758 graves in overseas cemeteries. If present trends continue, it will be in a few years when excess deaths will exceed all casualties from NZ since 1899.
I wonder if we’ll ever get anything like Armistice Day memory services. I won’t hold my breath until we even get to the point of recognition of these momentous changes.
For 3+ years every covid "case" mattered when for most it amounted to a mild to bad cold. Now that NZers are experiencing unprecedented harms unattributable to covid, authorities are mute.@HatchardMedia @RCR_NZ on our population health shipwreck. @HopeRising19 pic.twitter.com/mLXHkLnlIp
