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.

    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.

Internal docs show Amazon censored books on vaccinations due to pressure from Biden White House

Recently released internal Amazon emails reveal the company caved to pressure from the Biden White House to suppress available vaccine information.

Provided to the House Judiciary Committee, the emails light on the extent of the Biden White House’s influence over the retail giant regarding vaccine-related content. The emails disclose a concerning narrative of pressure from government officials to suppress information deemed unfavorable to their agenda.

Republican Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio took to Twitter to disclose the findings, stating that the emails reveal direct pressure from the White House on Amazon to censor books expressing views contrary to those endorsed by the administration. One email, albeit redacted, explicitly poses the question of whether the administration requested the removal of certain books, to which the answer was affirmative.

National Review highlights the successful efforts of the Biden administration in persuading Amazon to limit the visibility of titles skeptical of vaccine efficacy. White House senior adviser for Covid-19 response, Andrew Slavitt, expressed concerns about Amazon’s role in propagating what he termed as “misinformation” regarding vaccines. His emails illustrate a push for action to address what he perceived as a proliferation of dissenting views.

In response to Slavitt’s inquiries, Amazon initially hesitated to take overt action, fearing backlash from conservative media outlets. The company’s internal deliberations reflect a concern for public perception and the potential amplification of the issue if intervention were too conspicuous.

Despite initially refraining from manual intervention, Amazon eventually succumbed to pressure, engaging in discussions with White House officials. The company’s internal documents reveal deliberations on whether the administration sought outright book bans or alterations to search results. Amazon’s stance, as expressed in their meeting with the White House, emphasized the provision of diverse viewpoints and the distinction between online retail and social media platforms.
