Pressure from Governor Prompts NY Hospitals to Admit Nearly Half ‘COVID’ Patients Were Admitted for Other Reasons

New York Governor Kathy Hochul just proved herself to be virtually the complete antithesis of former disgraced Governor Andrew Cuomo when it comes to COVID documentation and honesty. “Under pressure from Governor Kathy Hochul, hospitals in New York have disclosed that nearly half of their so-called COVID-19 patients currently hospitalized were admitted for other reasons” reports the Daily Mail UK.

On Friday, the New York hospitals revealed a whopping 42% of the COVID patients were admitted for reasons other than the virus, but coincidentally tested positive in addition. In New York City, that number is even higher, with a 51% rate.

Daily Mail reports Hochul had requested the clarified and specific data after seeing the total number of hospitalizations hold steady. Hochul was determined to investigate the issue “after noticing that the number of people hospitalized for any reason had remained roughly steady since December 21, even while the share of new admissions testing positive for COVID surged from 16 to 42 percent” reports Daily Mail.

“Of the roughly 11,500 COVID-19 patients currently hospitalized in the state, COVID was not included as one of the reasons for admission for 43 percent” the data showed. Researchers at Washington University “modelling the next stage of the pandemic expect Omicron to kill up to 99 per cent fewer people than Delta, as scientists say that the variant is less deadlier than the flu” writes Daily Mail.

At a press conference just before the weekend, Hochul said of her decision to get better information: “this has troubled me, what do those numbers actually mean? Who is being admitted for covid purposes that they’re sick enough to have to be hospitalized for covid, it’s that severe, versus people who are admitted to hospital…who are in there for other reasons?”

Patients “with” COVID were hospitalized for unrelated reasons, such as injuries in a car crash, but tested positive for the virus during routine screening upon being admitted “and were subsequently reclassified as COVID admissions” adds Daily Mail.

So although on Friday New York State saw its highest death toll from COVID for the second consecutive day since the beginning of vaccinations, things aren’t as dire.

    AU CUL really is not a person of integrity.

    I wouldn’t go so far as saying she’s the complete antithesis of Cuomo. She’s still a liberal Democrat. She’s just not as arrogant or tone deaf as Cuomo. She’s trying to get out in front of the hammer of doom that’s about to come down hard on the Democrats every where.

Freedom in the UK: Johnson ends ‘all Covid measures’ including mask wearing

The United Kingdom is enjoying a huge announcement. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced “the end of all Covid measures introduced to combat the Omicron variant – compulsory mask-wearing on public transport and in shops, guidance to work from home and vaccine certificates – from next week” reports The Guardian.

For those with coronavirus, the legal requirement for them to self-isolate will also be allowed to lapse when the regulations expire on March 24. Johnson also announced an immediate end for students to wear masks at secondary schools.

“From tomorrow we will no longer require face masks in classrooms and the Department for Education will shortly remove national guidance on their use in communal areas,” Johnson told the Commons.

“In the country at large we will continue to suggest the use of face coverings in enclosed or crowded spaces, particularly when you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet, but we will trust the judgment of the British people and no longer criminalise anyone who chooses not to wear one.”

The Prime Minister said Covid data was “showing that time and again this government got the toughest decisions right” and that plan B rules that were put in place in December could all be lifted from next Thursday, the day after a pre-existing review point.

The Guardian notes Britain had expected Johnson would soon be ending work-from-home guidance and the mandate to show a certificate proving vaccination or proof of a recent negative Covid test. However, the immediate lifting of mandatory mask rules will “come as a surprise to some.”

Johnson is receiving some push back from some teaching and health unions. The general secretary of the Royal College of Nursing, said ministers would “regret sending the wrong signal to the public for political expediency”.

Joint general secretary of the National Education Union Mary Bousted said, “While the trend amongst secondary aged children is down, it is however uncertain, due to the short time schools have been back since the Christmas holidays, that this trend will continue. Such uncertainty could lead to a pronounced risk of increased disruption with children and staff having to isolate.”
