"The liberal media desperately wants people to die in Florida because nothing gets these people off more than having a narrative that explicitly reads, ‘I told you so, you dumb red state country bumpkin.’ Gov. Ron DeSantis has become public enemy number one for the COVID panic porn peddlers. We’ve seen a surge of new cases from the Sunshine State, but what are the real numbers? With some labs, like Orlando Health, not even reporting negative test results, the positivity rates are all messed up. In that case, Orlando Health reported a 98 percent positivity rate, but when you add the negatives, it drops to 9.4 percent. Look, I’m an Asian who absolutely sucks at math, but I know that will screw up the data.
Now, we have a man who died and was listed as a COVID fatality, but he didn’t die from the virus. He was in a motorcycle crash. Dying with COVID isn’t the same as dying of COVID, which is why I think the death toll is going to have to be revised." Townhall
"We rate the claim that hospitals get paid more if patients are listed as COVID-19 and on ventilators as TRUE.
Hospitals and doctors do get paid more for Medicare patients diagnosed with COVID-19 or if it's considered presumed they have COVID-19 absent a laboratory-confirmed test, and three times more if the patients are placed on a ventilator to cover the cost of care and loss of business resulting from a shift in focus to treat COVID-19 cases." USA Today
"This higher allocation of funds has been made possible under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act through a Medicare 20% add-on to its regular payment for COVID-19 patients, as verified by USA TODAY through the American Hospital Association Special Bulletin on the topic." USA Today"
So… pilgrims, doctors and hospitals are being paid more for caring for people they describe as COVID patients, a lot more!
Get it? This is a scam, A scam that in which political orientation probably plays a significant part. pl
