News reports on Monday claimed Jett Stanton, 21 from Sydney is the youngest person to be hospitalised with COVID-19 symptoms.
Mr Stanton told 9News from his hospital bed in Sydney's Liverpool Hospital he had tested positive for the virus a day before he was booked in for the vaccination, telling the media outlet he 'fears for his health' after doctors advised him his symptoms would likely worsen in the coming week.
'The doctor explained to me it's normally the second week when it hits you the hardest,' Mr Stanton said.
Mr Stanton claims he has suffered intensive headaches, cold sweats, a blocked throat and chest along with passing out from panic attacks.
'The fact that I'm not in the second week yet, I don't know what to expect,' he said.
'That's probably the scariest part of it'.
A 'supplied image' to media shows Mr Stanton sitting in his hospital donning a face mask and a flexi-plastic face covering, along with a gold ring that looks suspiciously masonic.
Reiterating the mass push to vaccinate younger Australians despite a 99.8% recovery rate, the mainstream media again highlighted the incorrect message for youth to be vaccinated - regardless of the drugs securing only provisional TGA approval.
9News dramatically described Mr Stanton's state of health COVID-19 as a 'struggle between life and death'.
Mr Stanton, described as a 'semi-professional skateboarder', stressed to media he had no underlying health conditions, and said he was shocked how the virus has so drastically affected him.
'I have no underlying physical conditions. I eat healthy, exercise, don’t consume alcohol or smoke cigarettes,' he told the Herald on Sunday.
'I can’t stress enough, regardless of how healthy and young you are, you cannot predict how (COVID-19) will affect you'. 'I’ve never experienced feeling so uncomfortable and unwell before,' he said, along with saying the diagnosis had taken a significant toll on his mental health after suffering from recent panic attacks, claiming his body was so weak he 'passed out for several minutes'.
'It has left me feeling so helpless,' Mr Stanton said.
He said his two housemates have all tested positive for COVID-19, with his girlfriend who is apparently vaccinated, testing negative.
An Instagram post by Mr Stanton warned his 3000 followers COVID-19 was not just a flu like 'they' say it is and described those who do not want to partake in the world's biggest clinical trial as 'privileged dogs'.
The TGA provisional approval report for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine serves to confirm Health Minister Greg Hunt's statement that we are partaking in a vaccine trial.
'We are engaged in the world's biggest clinical trial, the world's largest vaccination trial ever, and we will have enormous amounts of data.' he said.
Mr Stanton told his followers, 'COVID is NOT a joke and is not to be played with'.
'It is not the government trying to control you and I can 100 per cent assure you this is not a flu like some of you say it is,' he said. Mr Stanton went on to say he was well aware of the dangers of COVID-19 as his family included a lot of doctors.
'I have a lot of doctors in my family and so I was definitely aware that COVID was a threat to young people and I tried to be as responsible as possible ... but I had no idea it would hit me this hard', he said.
Interestingly, one of Mr Stanton's family members includes Dr Chris Stanton who resides at Western Sydney University.
Dr Stanton's specialities in the MARCS Institute for Brain, Behaviour and Development includes human-robot interaction, human-machine interaction, artificial intelligence, autonomous robotics, cognitive science and social psychology.
Western University also coincidentally staffs Professor John Hunt, who works within the School of Science listed as an Associate Dean, Research, Dean's Unit, and who is Australian Health Minister Greg Hunt's brother.
This seemingly coincidental connection is unusual given Greg Hunt's connection to graphene, Andrew 'Twiggy' Forrest, big pharma and mind medicines.
Professor John Hunt along with his brother Associate Professor Robert (Bob) Hunt, who specialises in anatomy and neurobiology at the University of California, both work in conjunction with The Robert Hunt Lab.
The Robert Hunt Lab is a foundation focusing on conditions of brain development, complex neurological disorders and developing cellular and molecular tools that enable precise manipulation or repair of the brain and recording high-speed dynamics of specialised neurons derived from human stem cells.
The organisation is quoted as 'hoping to discover precisely how the nervous system is changed in neurodevelopmental disorders or by traumatic brain injury, and to use this information to create new therapies', these new therapies having had billions of dollar of investment poured into bringing them to market and including graphene.
According to latest COVID-19 statistics from health officials released today, approximately a quarter of NSW’s locally acquired cases over the past week have been recorded in people in their 20s stating that as of Sunday, 195 of the state’s 830 local cases were in people aged 20 to 29 with NSW recording 830 new local cases and three deaths.
These figures prompted NSW Health Deputy Secretary Susan Pearce to urge people aged 16 to 39 who live in the identified 12 local government areas of concern in Sydney’s south and west to be vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine with mass vaccination hubs said to have booked over 200,000 vaccinations with the NSW Health hoping to double that number.
'Those age groups in particular who have not previously had an opportunity to be vaccinated because of the previous prioritisation arrangements, this is your chance. Please take it,' Ms Pearce said.
Yet in direct conflict with these numbers are statistics taken from the Government's Australian Influencer Surveillance Report outlining there is no absolutely no indication of the potential severity of the 2021 season at this time (in the year to date) and of the 462 notifications of laboratory-confirmed influenza, no influenza-associated deaths have been notified to the NNDSS and that there have been no hospital admissions due to influenza reported across sentinel hospitals sites since commencement of surveillance in April, 2021.
The Australian Influenza Surveillance Report and Activity Updates are compiled from a number of data sources, which are used to monitor influenza activity and severity in the community. These data sources include laboratory-confirmed notifications to NNDSS; influenza associated hospitalisations; sentinel influenza-like illness (ILI) reporting from general practitioners; ILI-related community level surveys; and sentinel laboratory testing results.
The report further states given the low number of laboratory-confirmed influenza notifications, low community ILI activity, and no hospitalisations due to influenza at sentinel hospital sites, it is likely there is minimal impact on society due to influenza in 2021, to date.
Of note are the at-risk populations that state in 2021 to date, adults aged 80 years and older, adults aged 60–69 years, and children under 5 years of age, have the highest influenza notification rates and not the demographic of people aged 20 to 29 as stated by Susan Pearce.
