At the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, hospital staffers were working around the clock at full capacity. It was hard for them. They went through a lot, what with having to dress in practical Hazmat suits all day long while treating COVID patients. That’s why Americans think of our healthcare professionals as the heroes of the pandemic. They worked in the thick in the of it, caring for COVID patients even before the vaccines came out. We owe them a lot of our gratitude.
Then, after the delta variant hit, our dedicated healthcare workers were able to keep up with the surge in COVID cases that hit them. Even while the surge happened, there were other kinds of illnesses that had been at times more prevalent, but you won’t hear that from the mainstream news.
According to data on COVID-19 deaths from Johns Hopkins University, since January 1, 2021, there have been approximately 353,000 deaths from the pandemic. This is about a thousand more COVID-19 deaths than in all of 2020.
This means that more Americans have died from COVID-19 under President Joe Biden than did under former President Donald Trump and the same CNN and MSNBC that blamed Donald Trump for every COVID death has remained silent under Biden.
There are watchdog groups that report a number of hospitals over-reported the number of COVID cases by including anything that was remotely related just to boost the numbers. Reports went out that people who were never even tested for COVID and died in car accidents were listed as COVID deaths.
Even more reports are showing that there is a growing number of people who are going to the hospital that are sick and have nothing to do with COVID. And this rising number of emergency room visits are not being treated in the media the way the COVID numbers were.
A major problem hospitals are seeing is many patients coming in with illnesses that are more serious for the same causes than what used to come in before the pandemic hit. Because much of the COVID pandemic was hyped up way more than was necessary (the media had an agenda) many patients with chronic illnesses were afraid to go the hospital for treatment.
Now, it’s being reported that many people who had the beginning stages of cancer at the beginning of the pandemic waited to go see a doctor and they are now in stage 4 when they could have had it treated if they went earlier. Other illnesses got more serious for the same reasons.
Heart conditions, respiratory ailments, and blood clots patients,not to mention suicide attempts are now overwhelming many emergency room staff.
Many patients are coming in with serious cases of their illnesses, so they cannot be released quickly. This is filling up the hospital beds at a rapid rate because patients must be treated for a longer time for the same illnesses hospitals treated pre-pandemic.
Hospital staffs are creating “overflow units” to house the rising number of patients who waited too long for treatment because CNN and MSNBC scared the living daylights out of them in their news reports. ER personnel are saying there is such an alarming rate of ER ambulance deliveries they are forced to divert a number of patients to other hospitals.
In some hospitals, things are so bad they have to prioritize who gets treated and who doesn’t, who gets to stay and who has to be transported to another hospital.
Add to this the fact that thousands of nurses are going to be terminated over COVID vaccine mandates. That will make what hospitals are experiencing now unbearable.
Nurses are having to tell some patients that they have to wait in the hallway so someone who is even sicker than them can be treated before them.
Many experts are saying that the forced lockdowns helped create the new wave of chronic illnesses. You know how they say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure? Well, many people were not able to go see a doctor when they started to feel sick because of lockdowns and fear of catching COVID in a hospital.
You have to ask yourself if America’s emergency rooms are being overrun by illnesses that have nothing to do with COVID, why are the administrators not coming up with ways to handle minor COVID cases instead of still pushing the COVID protocols that slow things down and in this case, cause non-COVID sick patients to have to wait long periods of time?
And why is the Fake News media not reporting on the surge of non-COVID illnesses that are overwhelming hospitals? They have a moral obligation to report the truth and they are still reporting hyperbolic COVID fear porn to the American people.
