Recently in Houston it has been reported that total ICU capacity is 97% occupied. The suggestion was that, once again, the hospitals are overflowing with patients sick and dying with COVID-19.
There is, however, very little context as to what this 97% represents, though it is suspected to be based on an aggregate of the total ICU bed capacity across hospitals in the city of Houston. Nevertheless, local and national news is once again using a statistic without any context in a deceptive way.
According to Newsweek, only 27% of those patients were considered COVID-19 patients. This statistic was neglected from the headlines, and very purposefully so. Deception is the name of the game when it comes to the reporting on this so-called pandemic.
Recall that hospitals are financially incentivized to report patients who exhibit a very basic array of symptoms that are commonly associated with both the common cold or the flu as COVID-19. According to an article at USA TODAY, Medicare pays $13,000 for a regular COVID-19 diagnosis and $39,000 for an intubated patient.
One can easily imagine a scenario where an individual who is immunocompromised or has a pre-existing condition begins to exhibit symptoms that would have previously been used to diagnose a simple respiratory condition such as a cold; however, since many respiratory symptoms have been re-designated as being COVID-19, many would be inclined to be tested due to the around-the-clock fear mongering of the mainstream media.
The test, based on a DNA manufacturing technique called PCR, is not binary (true/false) and has been suggested to have an 80.33% false positive rate. The false positive, of course, is registered per the detection of RNA which can come from sources other than viral particles such as bacteria, fungi, etc. More information on the PCR test can be found in my article Coronavirus: A Breakdown on Current Testing Procedures.
Now, in our particular scenario, the individual with respiratory symptoms ends up testing positive. This individual, fearing the worst, while already having a pre-existing condition, would be a welcomed addition to an ICU in any hospital where that hospital has a financial incentive to the tune of $13,000 to put them there. This person becomes an addition to the statistics that are used to ultimately frighten everyone into demanding (or, at least, minimally resisting) a supposed “life saving” set of social conditions such as mandatory masks, social distancing, or destructive lockdowns.
Recall in one of my early articles, Coronavirus Numbers: The Game is Rigged, that the number of “infected” is deceptive, especially considering that it is based on PCR testing procedures known to have a 80.33% chance of a false positive. It is deceptive for the fact the number of cases of those known to “recover” is never deducted from the number of “infected”. This guarantees that the number of infected will always only increase and can be paraded around for the purposes of generating more fear and panic.
In conclusion, we can easily see how a faulty test coupled with hefty financial incentives and numerical deception is the fuel for the statistics that are being used to engineer this pandemic. These statistics are dictating the negative social conditions that are being imposed on us out of irrational fear and the resulting seemingly collective psychosis that the masses are under due to the fear caused by incessant pandemic propaganda.
