Omicron Data War (General)

US hospitals seeing different kind of COVID surge this time

This story presents some startling data regarding Omicron and related hospitalization, and it raises a lot of questions.

... a surprising share of patients — two-thirds in some places — are testing positive while in the hospital for other reasons.

This is astonishing. So the majority of people being diagnosed with covid at hospitals went to the hospital for different reasons, presumably not even aware they had covid. One question is, are they now being counted as hospitalized covid patients?

..hospitals say the patients aren’t as sick as those who came in during the last surge. Intensive care units aren’t as full, and ventilators aren’t needed as much as they were before.

Clearly they're not as sick. Most of them didn't even know they were sick, which means they aren't sick!

...the hospitalization numbers do not tell the whole story. Some cases in the official count involve COVID-19 infections that weren’t what put the patients in the hospital in the first place.

Noted above. Not just 'some' cases, but the majority of cases. This quote seems to suggest that people who go to the hospital for a reason other than covid, and are then hospitalized, are considered hospitalized covid patience. If this is so, it's a serious misrepresentation of data.

Dr. Fritz François, chief of hospital operations at NYU Langone Health in New York City, said about 65% of patients admitted to that system with COVID-19 recently were primarily hospitalized for something else and were incidentally found to have the virus.

Again, same story. The majority of people being hospitalized, who happen to have covid, weren't sick. That means the vast majority of people who have covid don't have symptoms. That means it's not make most of us sick.

At two large Seattle hospitals over the past two weeks, three-quarters of the 64 patients testing positive for the coronavirus were admitted with a primary diagnosis other than COVID-19.

Again.

In Connecticut, many ER patients are in beds in hallways, and nurses are often working double shifts because of staffing shortages, said Sherri Dayton, a nurse at the Backus Plainfield Emergency Care Center. Many emergency rooms have hours-long waiting times, she said.

Here's the rub. When these health care workers test positive for covid (that's not making them sick) they have to stay home, and this is causing people who really are sick with things like heart failure, diabetes, stroke, etc., miss out on treatment.

This is an absurd situation. Our hospitals are failing the public not because of covid, but because of covid policy. As teachers, we all know that we go to work ALL THE TIME with a runny nose, or even much worse. We wouldn't think of staying at home because we have a virus that isn't making us sick. This is what's happening in health care. No doubt doctors and nurses get tested regularly, perhaps even daily, and when they show positive, they have to stay home, even if they feel great. This is resulting in people who really need treatment for other things not getting it. Crazy.

Great post.

The answer in Aus, at least, is 'yes'. People who are hospitalized in Australia - or die - are considered Covd victims - regardless of whether they were admitted to hospital/died with the disease or due to it.

Data war is the right term here - it's deliberate manipulation of the data for purposes of scaring/controling people. Later if they want to show how effective vaccines/boosters are then they can change it to 'died from Covid'! According to Dan's stats you could reduce Covid deaths/hospitalizations by 2/3's overnight!

The following is a great example - headlines in every media outlet around Aus yesterday:

What are you meant to think when you see those headlines? Covid is now scything down our toddlers - we all need to redouble our efforts to get boosters, increase restrictions! Of course it's rubbish - buried in the bottom of the stories (or not) is a small sentence saying the baby didn't die from Covid - only that she was diagnosed with it.

Here's the rub. When these health care workers test positive for covid (that's not making them sick) they have to stay home, and this is causing people who really are sick with things like heart failure, diabetes, stroke, etc., miss out on treatment.

Exactly the same thing is happening here - but it's presented in the media as 'Covid cases overwhelming the health services'.

We've mentioned this before - now i see it's trending on Twitter as a thing - not saying they got it from us, but we did pick up on it long while ago - that's 'mass psychosis'. One of the things that struck us initially about Covid in that we have an issue which the whole planet is thinking about simultaneously. That's kinda happened before - 911 would be an example - but not to this extent. That's partly due to the advanced state of the internet where thinking can be shaped/whipped up to the point where it no longer has anything to do with reality - it's simply a mass psychosis that has a life of its own. Unhinged from the truth as it is, it can then be manipulated/weaponized for whatever purpose one designs - providing you have the power to control the media - which our lead actors do have.

It's also very hard to stop. Rational reasoning is not gonna work - coz it's an irrational psychosis - you'll just get howled down/banned. It's not going to be easy to break that spell.

Omicron - the end of Covid?

by dulan drift, Friday, January 07, 2022, 13:51 (11 days ago) @ dulan drift

This is deduction - but since we're never going to hear the truth from the experts, it's all we've got.

Omicron is more contagious but mild compared to other variants.

At first i thought that there's no reason why it couldn't mutate to become more severe again but now i'm thinking that's probably wrong-headed.

As it's already super-contagious, it's unlikely that a new strain, which is more deadly, will out-compete it.

Therefore, Omicron represents the end-game for Covid.

Unfortunately it won't be the end-game for the new bio-state stranglehold - if only it was that simple.

It is indeed the end game for covid. Now, how does a multi trillion dollar industry get stopped.

Unfortunately it won't be the end-game for the new bio-state stranglehold - if only it was that simple.

It's right up there with the military industrial complex. We have a new one, the bio industrial complex. Now we have these two monsters competing for, or perhaps cooperating for, everything they can soak out of and steal from the public.

I sent you an email about a novel I'm starting on this topic.

Here's an example of a similar misleading headline from today:

Hospitalizations skyrocket in kids too young for COVID shots

The first paragraph reads:

Hospitalizations of U.S. children under 5 with COVID-19 soared in recent weeks to their highest level since the pandemic began, according to government data released Friday on the only age group not yet eligible for the vaccine.

But if you just bother to read 'below the fold', which most people don't, you'll find this:

At a briefing, Walensky said the numbers include children hospitalized because of COVID-19 and those admitted for other reasons but found to be infected.

The CDC also said the surge could be partially attributable to how COVID-19 hospitalizations in this age group are defined: a positive virus test within 14 days of hospitalization for any reason.

What they don't tell is is what percentage of this number is actually children who went to the hospital because they were seriously ill with covid. Perhaps that percentage was 0, but we'll never know.

With Covid or due to?

Danish newspaper, Ekstra Bladet, has apologized for participating in spreading misinformation about Covid hospitalization/death numbers.

Editorial: For almost two years, we – the press and the public – have been mesmerized by the daily covid reports from the authorities…We rashly reported about covid-infections, hospitalisations, and covid-related fatalities without checking.

We have reported on the smallest changes in the Covid story based on what the experts, politicians and authorities told us…

(T)he press – must also take stock of our own efforts. And we have failed you.

We were not vigilant enough when the authorities told us that people were in hospital ‘with’ Covid and not because of Covid. Because it makes a difference. A big difference.

The only news in this story is that it's the first media outlet in the world to admit they've been collaborating with health experts to spread misinformation since Covid began. They forgot to mention they've also spread whoppers about the origin of Covid - maybe that's still too big - but at least it's a start.

It's interesting that this 'with' or 'due to' distinction is suddenly being made now. We can deduce that it's due to vaccine failure - so it's a statistical lever to get the numbers down - to make it look like vaccines are still working - when they're not.

NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard: (Up to half of cases hospitalized) are actually people with other reasons for admission.

Fauci: If you look at the children [who] are hospitalised, many of them are hospitalised with Covid as opposed to because of Covid.

What we mean by that is that if a child goes in the hospital they automatically get tested for Covid and they get counted as a Covid hospitalised individual, when in fact they may go in for a broken leg or appendicitis or something like that. So it’s over-counting the number of children who are ‘hospitalised’ with Covid as opposed to because of Covid.

So who's fault was that? Why are you suddenly admitting this now?

Ontario chief medical officer Dr Kieran Moore: Many individuals have noted the importance of distinguishing between patients admitted to hospital or the ICU for Covid-19, versus those admitted for other reasons such as a broken bone or appendicitis, but also test positive for Covid-19. As a result, we have asked hospitals to update their daily reporting to include this important information and expect to begin receiving it, as well as adjusting our public reporting, in the coming days.

In a time where we're constantly exhorted to listen to the experts, we've seen lie, upon lie, upon lie from these same experts. It's hard to think of single topic on which they've been honest.

Then they complain about a growing mistrust in health experts and blame it on 'far-right-wing conspiracy theorists spreading misinformation'.

Good catch. There's nothing about this in any of the US-based main stream media as far as I know, other than acknowledgements of how data is collected buried at the end of stories.

The only news in this story is that it's the first media outlet in the world to admit they've been collaborating with health experts to spread misinformation since Covid began. They forgot to mention they've also spread whoppers about the origin of Covid - maybe that's still too big - but at least it's a start.

This could indeed be the point, to lower the count as boosters for a failed vaccine are continued to be pushed, required even, thus justifying this absurd reality we're in.

In a time where we're constantly exhorted to listen to the experts, we've seen lie, upon lie, upon lie from these same experts. It's hard to think of single topic on which they've been honest.

Then they complain about a growing mistrust in health experts and blame it on 'far-right-wing conspiracy theorists spreading misinformation'.

And the experts can spin the data however they want, depending on what needs to be accomplished. Do they count comorbidities or not? Do they count the 'with' or 'due to'? What does 'fully vaccinated' mean? Because it changes day to day. In fact the rules of the game change so frequently that it's no wonder the public has given up and just 'trusts the experts'. How about 'close contacts'? How long do we quarantine? Or do we? How far is social distancing? Six feet? Ten? Three? Masks? Indoors and out? It's all a farce.

There's a reference in The Refuser that sort of reflects this. I don't mean to confuse fiction with 'fact', but the line between the two has become very gray: For every Refuser, the Algorithm, for purposes of public health and safety, increased the number of Jab losses and decreased rewards according to the demographics and psychology of the community, resulting in a heightened sense of risk, risk attributed directly to the Refuser.

That's the value of demonization - it works as a dynamic. Tried and true.

The Refuser raises some questions - that we need to think about quickly - what options do we have for fucking with the system? The one you've got going in the book - feeding it fake information - makes sense. It's dependent on that info stream for exerting control - so it's also its weakness.

Ironically it's kinda like the mRNA tech - you intercept/alter the message - may be the only way to do it.
