biden admin to change definition of "hospitalized for covid"

here comes the climb down.

in case any of you were in any danger of thinking that any of this was ever about anything but politics, watch as the brandon administration, desperate in its plummeting polls and menaced by the impending mid-term rout switches jerseys and joins team “we should not be counting those who went to the hospital for some reason other than covid and later tested positive.”

ummm

apparently, unable to get hospitalization down with their endless vaccine push, they are going to finally go with the one sure sure way to do it: change the way we count the numbers.

welcome to where the smart part of the class was in april. of 2020.

The Biden administration is working on recalculating the number of Covid-19 hospitalizations in the U.S., according to two senior officials familiar with the matter.

A task force comprised of scientists and data specialists at the Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are working with hospitals nationwide to improve Covid-19 reporting. The group is asking hospitals to report numbers of patients who go to the facility because they have Covid-19 and separate those from individuals who go in for other reasons and test positive after being admitted, the two officials said.

my goodness! what next, ending the relentless testing of people with no symptoms, the use of an overclocked PCR test that is manifestly unsuited to purpose?

because that sure would drop cases.

(and if they keep using PCR in hospitals, especially high Ct PCR, the number will remain inflated)

requiring covid as actual proximate cause of death and not just accepting trace findings and calling it all covid deaths?

that will sure drop the number. (probably by 75-80%)

is this policy finally going to end?

this is a massive capitulation. it’s the outright admission that the metrics and measures they have used all along have been fraud or so close to fraud that you would not want to live off the difference.

they have systematically overcounted everything in a manner used for no other pathology. it has led to outlandish inflation of figures and of perceived threat. it was, from the very beginning, a conjured hobgoblin to scare you into compliance.

it ruined lives and livelihoods, abrogated freedoms, trampled rights, and broke brains. we’re going to be years digging out of this mess.

and now, because it suits the exigent needs of an impending election, it all gets memory holed?

sorry, but you do NOT get to do that.

this fact has been being screamed from rooftops for 2 long years. and it was ignored.

it was never about science. it was about politics. and it is about politics now.

this is going to backfire massively.

can they seriously think that anyone will be deceived by this volte face? that what, the science changed? new info came to light?

this is weapons grade goalpost moving because they do not like the way the score is piling up.

(and i fully expect them to slant this in application to make the past look bad and the present better. this sort of backward looking data slope slant is de rigueur in climate science where adulterating data to cool the past and warm the present to accentuate claims of rise has been going on for decades. they will use it to make vaccines look like they worked and like biden outperformed trump. this will be a colossal rig job as they apply it backward.)

this behavior proves, beyond any doubt that they knew better and chose to do it wrong because it suited their needs.

and now their needs have changed and so they will change the numbers.

they know exactly what effect this will have. they just did not want that effect seen previously.

every last politician who pushed this should lose office. all of them.

pardon my french, but talk to my fluffy feline butt you abject failures of leadership. go peddle your mendacious malignancies elsewhere. or better yet, just be quiet and go away.

you’re not fooling anyone.

and we are done with you.
