Meningococcal Disease at 10 to 13 Year Lows

Meningococcal Disease at 10 to 13 Year Lows

Ron Law - Risk & Policy Analyst

"Detailed analysis of Ministry of Health data reveals that notified meningococcal disease cases are at a 10 year low, and deaths are at a 13 year low," says risk & policy analyst Ron Law.

It doesn't matter how one looks at the data... Year-to-date, rolling 12 month totals, yearly total, adjusted for laboratory typing, etc, the picture is clearly the same.

These are astonishing facts that appear to have been kept out of sight of politicians and the New Zealand community, and do not appear to have been included in any epidemiological report found on the Ministry of Health and ESR websites or in information received to date under the Official Information Act.

"The question begging an urgent answer is, 'Why?'" asks Ron Law (09-832 4773).

"I'm sure that if the Cabinet had known theses facts it would not have approved the rollout of the mass vaccination experiment currently underway; just as the Minister of Health has noted in Parliament that the Norwegian Government rejected mass vaccination in 1990/1991," says Ron Law.

This latest evidence further confirms that the Minister of Health's 7 July statement that there is no evidence of the disease abating, is untrue and should be immediately retracted.
