Is my maths wrong here?
I heard that the government is giving a “£1.65bn boost to help get every adult vaccinated” [Source].
Ignoring the word “boost” for the moment and lets play this as if it’s “£1.65bn to vaccinate all adults in the UK”, I asked Google how many adults there are in the UK and it says in the region of 68million.
Therefore (if my maths is correct; because decimal places and different numbers of zeros and all that):
£1,650,000,000,000 / 68,000,000 = £24,264 per adult.
Given that this is a “boost” and therefore there is already an initial cost/budget, the total cost per adult is therefore higher.
Surely my use of billion is wrong and that decimal point should be shifted to, say, £24.26, given the vaccines are being produced for so many people the cost per vaccine should be relatively low, say compared to cancer treatments.
“The cost of chemotherapy in the UK is expensive if one chooses to go privately. The cost varies hugely with individual medical needs but a single round of chemotherapy can cost up to £30,000. Indeed, chemotherapy costs the NHS an estimated £1.4 billion a year.” – Source
Given that the medical industry is seeking to “vaccinate” and medicate everyone, they’re making a mint and will continue to do so, and increasingly so. On this current path the global population will be made dependent on not only vaccines, but on medication also (as many already are*); people are being lead to believe that’s the only way they can see “Covid-19” through; by awaiting their vaccine and getting medicine for every ailment they suffer from (or as I see it, have inflicted on us).
[An analysis has shown] that, in 2017 to 2018, 11.5 million adults in England (26% of the adult population) received, and had dispensed, one or more prescriptions for any of the medicines… [Source]
- antidepressants 7.3 million people (17% of the adult population)
- opioid pain medicines 5.6 million (13%)
- gabapentinoids 1.5 million (3%)
- benzodiazepines 1.4 million (3%)
- z-drugs 1.0 million (2%)
That was 2017/18. It has been said that the pandemic has caused a rise in depression, so with that will surely mean an uptake in the use of antidepressants.
I wonder, given the reported side effects of the vaccines, what medicine the average Covid-vaccinated person uses.
Some of the common side effects of the coronavirus vaccine may include:
- tenderness, swelling and/or redness at the injection site
- muscle ache
- feeling tired
- fever (temperature above 37.8°C).
A less common side effect is swelling of the glands. This starts a few days after the vaccine and may last for up to 2 weeks. This is to be expected and is a sign of the immune system responding to the vaccine.
If you feel uncomfortable, take paracetamol. – Source
Paracetamol (also known under its trade names of Tylenol, Panadol) is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, according to Wikipedia. Tylenol, which as I understand is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson (also according to Wikipedia) has many different advertisement approaches. One of these advertisement campaigns focuses on “getting you back to normal”… In 2018 and 2019 Johnson & Johnson made net earnings of $15,000 million, for selling $80,000 million of product. Nice. Push such things to the masses (or lead them to need or believe they need) and that’s where big money is to be made.
