The left and the main stream press (one in the same) have been selling panic since the start of the coronavirus outbreak. It seems they’ll do anything to maintain control of us citizens.
But now that we have sufficient research and data to disprove the panic culture and end the lockdowns, the left has taken to once again lie about the latest so-called spike regarding Covid-19 hospitalizations.
from Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review:
Horowitz: The new panic lie: Increased coronavirus hospitalizations and cases in the southwest
The health “experts” and the media propagating viral panic porn think people like us don’t understand arithmetic. They think they can manipulate headline stories warning of increased cases of COVID-19 in order to push more lockdowns, ignoring all the ways that more cases are being discovered, while the percentage of positive tests, new hospitalizations and deaths, and the lethality of the virus are all waning significantly.
“Arizona’s COVID-19 spread is ‘alarming’ and action is needed, experts warn,” read the title of an Arizona Republic article on Wednesday. Yahoo News breathlessly warned about a “spike” in all the southwestern states.
As is always the case, there is a grain of truth that is hugely distorted by numerous obfuscations of important facts and context. The truth is that new hospitalizations of people coming in for serious coronavirus infections are actually extremely low. What they are actually counting are the extra people coming in for all of the delayed health care caused by the lockdown. But thanks to universal testing in hospitals, they are discovering more asymptomatic cases than ever before, which had nothing to do with the original purpose of the hospital stay. Thus, they are blaming the fallout of the lockdown on the easing of the lockdown!
This chart from Arizona’s coronavirus dashboard says it all.
There is a lot of talk of “spike” in Arizona. I went to the Arizona Dept. of Health services Covid-19 dashboard and downloaded their hospitalization admissions by date chart. I put this into a daily 7-day running average. Does this look like a “spike” to you? pic.twitter.com/zHbPvIumQr
