Victorians For Vaccine Choice
The solicitors at Victorians For Vaccine Choice are making headway repealing the mandatory flu shot back to “recommended” for those who work in aged care and visitors in Victoria. They’re hoping that with increased pressure it will follow through to all states. They are also standing up for the 3000 low-income people still locked in (not locked down) 9 apartment buildings (which just so happens to be on prime real-estate with development applications already approved!!) being forced to comply with COVID testing (but not the rich apartment blocks across from them!!).
I am concerned about the reporting and lack of transparency around the number of ‘COVID cases.
What has been uncovered by a lady named Gem Dew is an Australian COVID-19 reporting loop-hole that allows a Principal Diagnosis of Coronavirus infection to be assigned to YOU as a ‘reported case’, even if you’ve had NO exposure, NO symptoms and where testing results are inconclusive, unavailable or not specified.
This is not a joke. Gem Dew is a practicing Health Information Manager and Clinical Coder. She used to code hospital data and provide reporting information for funding ie. how many $$ hospitals receive for diagnoses/procedures based on DRG’s [diagnosis related groups].
She no longer works in the Industry, but was curious to find out what the Coding rules were for COVID, and what she found shocked her …
Information Sourced from IHPA
This information is sourced from IHPA (Independent Hospital Pricing Authority), which is a government agency established under the Commonwealth. Its primary goal is to calculate and deliver an annual national efficient price (NEP), a benchmark for Australian hospital funding … this authority also provides the classification system for reporting of COVID-19 State cases.
In March 2020, the Commonwealth signed a national partnership on COVID-19 response with all of the Australian States. Under this partnership, $100 million is to be paid quarterly to the States. This is based on a population share basis of reported cases of COVID.
Coding Rules for COVID
What really shocked Gem were the coding rules for COVID. Coded information is the baseline data for reporting the total number of state cases.
Under a ‘mandated screening by authority test’ or a ‘self-presenting non-mandated test’ (where there has been NO exposure and NO symptoms), the reporting guidelines state ‘for clinically diagnosed or probable cases where testing is inconclusive, unavailable or not specified’, Australian hospitals (including emergency and non-admitted care) are to assign:
Principal Diagnosis – B34.2 – “Coronavirus infection, unspecified site”
Additional diagnoses – U07.2 “ Emergency use of U07.2, Coronavirus NOT identified”
This coding rule is a loop-hole that allows a principal diagnosis of Coronavirus infection to be assigned to anyone who has been tested by mandated authority or has self-presented, where the person has had NO exposure, NO symptoms, and where testing results are inconclusive, unavailable or not specified. Alarm bells people!!!
This absolutely shocked Gem. It does not matter about the additional diagnosis. What matters is that if you are assigned a principal diagnosis of B34.2, you are counted as a coronavirus case. As such, you are reported in the relevant State’s case numbers. Even if you’ve had no exposure, no symptoms and your testing results are inconclusive, unavailable, or not specified.
The integrity of COVID-19 case reporting is criminally misleading and engendering fear and panic that is simply not warranted and is leading our society down a path of self-destruction as people are turning on each other based on separation & false reporting.

Here’s a site where you’ll find my writings.
My book, Bravehearts of Belgrave High, has now been published. I have completed the first in a series of novels that I am writing for teens. It is the courageous story of a young girl growing up in a home filled with domestic violence. She also has to endure a school and neighbourhood full of bullies. We read how she manoeuvres her way through such a difficult situation. Plus, how she grows because of it, among other themes in the novel.
I hope that young readers will be inspired by my book to treasure their unique differences. If they don’t fit in with the system or with those around them, then they should realise that it’s quite okay not to fit in.
