German press is reporting on German hospitals who lied about ICU availability to get more money from the gov't. Merckel allegedly knew, but went along with it to scare people into measures.

It is one of the biggest scandals of the Corona crisis: Numerous clinics deliberately reported fewer free intensive care beds than they had - in order to collect money from taxpayers! This is revealed by a report by the Federal Audit Office (BRH).

The worst part: The federal government had known about the manipulation for months.
Quote:
Anxiety.

Every German felt that when he heard that our hospitals were about to collapse. The idea of ***8203;***8203;gasping for breath in overcrowded hospital corridors is oppressive.

This fear was the main argument in favor of the lockdowns.


And the federal government used it again and again.

"The intensive care physicians send one call for help after the other" - this is how Chancellor Angela Merkel only called for the "federal emergency brake" on April 16.

The fact that clinic managers deliberately reported too few free beds to collect money from the state is unbearable.

It is a scandal that the federal government had known about it for months without informing the citizens, but nevertheless with collapse warnings for the lockdown.

The manipulation allegations must be fully clarified. The federal government must answer all questions immediately.

She owes this to the general public and not least to the heroic doctors and nurses.

Our fear must not be abused.
And just lol at the idiots here who think the PCR testing at 40, revised to 28 this Jan, and additional money for covid and ventilation wasn't abused here in a similar manner, not to mention the ability to get money for funeral expenses if it was from covid.

ICU availability dipped below the (somewhat arbitrary) 20% threshold in my county recently, but hospitalized covid patients are at record lows.

I'm glad reopening criteria is being evaluated by humans and not machines.

bild.de.. know your source

This is not "german press"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bild

Quote:
Reception

Der Spiegel wrote in 2006 that Bild "flies just under the nonsense threshold of American and British tabloids ... For the German desperate, it is a daily dose of high-resolution soft porn".[29]

It is argued Bild's thirst for sensationalism results in the terrorizing of prominent celebrities and stories are frequently based on the most dubious evidence. The journalistic standards of Bild are the subject of frequent criticism.

BILDblog [de] is a popular German blog that when founded was dedicated solely to documenting errors and fabrications in Bild articles.[18] In 2005 BILDblog received the Grimme Online Award for its work. Since 2009 BILDblog has also reported on errors and fabrications in other newspapers from Germany and elsewhere.

Learn to read. They are merely posting a source quoting the German BRH. It's in all other German publications as well.

This is why 'attack the source' is a failure as a technique, employed by low-IQ individuals. Not to help you morons, but for those reading, to make the point:

Here is a data point for Rexy18/Poison/WCR -

106000 employees in the Texas Medical Center
117 are suing because they refuse vaccination and have been put on furlough.

For kicks, lets assume 10% of staff are involved in medical delivery. That gives approximately 98.9% vaccination among relevant staff. The CEO reports 99%.

In March, the TMC reported >75% for all 106k staff in the TMC before widespread vaccine availability. It is certainly higher now as remote workers and young staff who had been told to wait have now been vaccinated.

So this 50% number is just wrong. Just made up BS.

Yep, mods don't give a ****, troll threads are popping up and ****posting is on the rise, so we're basically here to disprove your misinformation, call it misinformation and not care, because to you, we're dumb sheeple no matter what we say. Have a nice day and **** off.

I wonder how many of those non-vaxxed staff in TX are doctors and surgeons i.e. highest paid and highest education.

Yeah, but none of that 100% solved the issues they were helping out of the kindness of their hearts, why even bother?

Am I doing this right Wannabe_Poisony18?

The vaccines are so insidious that they actually alter the laws of physics.

Straight up lizard-person tech right there.

The question is if we can spread it. Hence me somehow ignoring my base setting and not being ass hole and continuing to mask.

Based on what I have been seeing in other reports, gonna guess it's mostly nurses. They believe that since they have certain medical training that they know all, when in reality VERY few of that have any statistics training or training in clinical trials. Local university's hospital back in March:
https://www.uab.edu/news/health/item...cination-rates

MDs had a high take-rate, nurses did not. What do the MDs know that the nurses don't? Most do take classes in stats and clinical trials. Nurses are not generally trained in this way...
