“Anti-vaxx” Concerns Prompt Scotland’s Public Health to Hide Data of COVID-19 Hospitalizations and Deaths by Vaccine Status

The Public Health Scotland (PHS) announced on Wednesday that they would stop publishing the data of COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths by vaccine status after data was “inappropriately misinterpreted” by anti-vaxx people.

The COVID-19 data will not be published claiming that it’s misrepresented by “anti-vaxxers,” according to reports. Instead, the officials will concentrate on publishing “more robust and complex vaccine effectiveness data.”

PHS is worried that the data might be used to show that the vaccines are ineffective and dangerous.

The Scotsman reported:

Officials said that two central issues relating to the unvaccinated population and testing habits meant the data was no longer reliable or robust and open for misinterpretation without adequate context.

This is due to the fact that the population data used for the unvaccinated population is based on GP registration details, meaning it includes thousands of individuals who are registered but may no longer live in Scotland or simply failed to deregister.

As the vaccinated population grows, this flaw in the data becomes more pronounced due to the true number of unvaccinated people being much lower than the number used, making the final published data less reliable.

Vaccinated people are also more likely to report the results of lateral flow tests, further skewing the data due to changes in how a test result is formally recorded with individuals no longer needing a PCR test to confirm infection.

One PHS official said that focusing on vaccine effectiveness rather than the existing “very simple statistics” would result in “much more robust” data for the public.
