Figures show only 44% of the 780 patients tested positive at the time of admission, while the rest were eventually diagnosed with Covid through required routine testing. The data suggests that the majority of patients were admitted for other reasons, but were counted as Covid hospitalizations, and inflated the numbers.
Republican Representatives Paul Gosar, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz, and Louie Gohmert are trying to help dozens of Capitol protesters who are being detained in prison and reportedly abused and tortured. None of the detainees were violent, none had firearms, and none have been charged with insurrection.
The CDC reports the inflated rate of hospitalization for any patient who tests positive for the virus. For example, an asymptomatic child who tests positive after being injured in a bicycle accident could counted as a COVID case. The CDC doesn’t distinguish whether a child is hospitalized for Covid or with Covid.
UK: Vaccinated people, who have taken at least one dose of the Pfizer or AstraZeneca vaccine, make up 47% of new cases of COVID-19, according to a symptom-tracking app. The media claims that vaccines still work, but admit that “millions will still be vulnerable to infection even after getting both doses.”
A COVID pass will be required for using public transport, entering a cinema, shopping malls, bars and cafes. People in France who enter these venues without a COVID pass face 6 months in jail, while business owners who fail to check customers’ status face a 1-year prison sentence and a $53.000 fine.
