Twitchy: New data shows 51% of patients in NYC hospitalized *with* Covid not *for* Covid

This is not just going on in New York. My daughter tells me they have ER patients coming in for other reasons but everyone routinely gets tested for COVID and if they test positive, even if not sick or symptomatic, it’s on their chart. And in a lot of the nation’s hospitals it is being counted as a COVID patient and COVID hospitalizations. Who’s to blame? The hospital administrations? The news media? Both?

Well, I’m to understand that hospitals get federal (and state?) money for the numbers of COVID patients. And don’t forget at the onset of the pandemic nearly two the WHO advised the US CDC, who then advised the nation’s hospitals to put ‘cause of death’ down as Corona virus, without coroner testing, for anyone dying.

Jonathan S. Tobin: Democrats’ Top Priority Before Fall Elections Is Rigging U.S. Voting Rules … And a YUGE chunk of the dems’ panic is because their base has had enough of the trash-talking and the division of the party, and their socialist policies that have dragged this country and our economy down pretty damn far in just under a year. And the fact that a growing percentage of their base, voters of color, from black to Hispanic democrats are turning away from them.
