Hospitalizations skyrocket in kids too
young for COVID shots

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. The worrisome trend in children too young to be vaccinated underscores the need for older kids and adults to get their shots to help protect those around them, said Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Since mid-December, with the highly contagious omicron variant spreading furiously around the country, the hospitalization rate in these youngest kids has surged to more than 4 in 100,000 children, up from 2.5 per 100,000.


Garbage headline of the week, the takeaway being that COVID is raging out of control in preschool children. Point #1: "Skyrocket". Cases up from 2.5 to 4 per 100,000 is not exactly my definition of skyrocket during the current omicron surge. More importantly, Point #2, buried in the article: “Most of the COVID+ kids in the hospital are actually not here for COVID-19 disease, they are here for other issues but happen to have tested positive.”

Somewhere around the 11th paragraph article explains from/with, also considered in these #'s positive test up to 14 days prior. So called health officials in this country are nothing more than propagandists.

Fake news. Even the Great Fauxi said most of the children were not hospitalized because of WuFlu but instead found out they had it only after seeking medical attention for some other issue: “It is noteworthy, however, that many children are hospitalized with [COVID-19] as opposed to because of [COVID-19],” Anthony Fauci said during a press briefing last week.

The article in deep contradicts here claim that omicron is as severe as delta in the unvaccinated. The wise latina is not so wise; a hack in black.

Here's the 13th paragraph: “Most of the COVID+ kids in the hospital are actually not here for COVID-19 disease,” McGuire said in an email. “They are here for other issues but happen to have tested positive.” With this science, if hospitals asked new patients if they'd eaten potatoes within the previous 24 hours, the CDC would ban them.

Think about it: 4 in 100,000 etc. THINK ABOUT IT! And think about the "soaring" headline. I have long contended that if the Press actually was not biased and did its job reporting, Biden would not be President, OAC would not be gallivanting, Sotomyer would be recognized as the "wise Latinix" she is, Swalwell would CERTAINLY, along with Schiff, still not be on the Intel committee, etc. Just basic down the line straight reporting: not opinions, not burying the lead, or not reporting on an issue at all. Most of my avid Democratic friends are clueless as they rely on the Nets and MSNBC et al. I have the same amount of contempt for 95% of straight news organizations and reporters as I am beginning to have for 90% of the teachers in the Union.

So show us the statistics for how many kids that age per year have been hospitalized for the flu, and how many have died of the flu each year, over the last 20 years prior to Covid. I'm guessing it's substantially higher, so we will never see those numbers!!! Fear is the greatest tool of despots and dictators in controlling the masses of peasants!!!!

Both of my grandchildren have had covid. The older one had the Delta variant in August when he was 17 months old. He ran a fever for a few hours and that was it. The younger one has just recovered from the Omicron (Xi) variant and is 5 months old. She had sniffles and diarrhea for 3 days. That’s it. The only treatment they got was Tylenol and Pedialyte.

Having to press back against the lie-repeated-until-it-becomes-true, "with the highly contagious omicron variant"... you mean "with the highly contagious, mild symptomed omicron variant". The second part was never in question, but the easy-to-transmit part kept getting hyped, while the mild effects part somehow got dropped from all the media reports. Just not scary enough if we are reminded of the milder effects...

The January 6th insurrection made clear the increasing dangers of domestic extremism in the U.S. But with social media spreading online disinformation at an alarming rate, how can law enforcement and experts hope to stop the flow of white supremacist propaganda? Some believe teaching people how to recognize false information and stop them from becoming radicalized in the first place is the best strategy. Methods developed from these partnerships include teaching students about democratic values, providing mental health and job counseling, and educating youths on how radicalization works. CORRECTIONS*

Texas scientists rolled out a new COVID-19 vaccine, saying it’s patent-free and can be produced by any manufacturer in any country. The vaccine, called Corbevax, was developed by the Texas Children’s Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine. It has successfully passed human trials as safe and effective. The new treatment is based off protein-based technology that has been used in other vaccines for decades and it does not use MRNA. India has already authorized production of 100 million doses per month of the new vaccine. Meanwhile, Texas scientists say not-for-profit vaccines will help defeat COVID-19 quicker.

Dana Finley Morrison, a Missouri-based fraternity and sorority worker, was flying from St Lucia to Miami on Saturday when she spotted the pilot's 'Let's Go Brandon' sticker. The slogan began to circulate in September, when a Nascar reporter misheard the chants of 'F*** Joe Biden', and it has since become an anti-Biden rallying cry. Morrison tweeted to American Airlines, saying: 'Y'all cool with your pilots displaying this kind of cowardly rhetoric on their crew luggage when they're in uniform, about to board a plane?

Most Americans today have a romanticized (and extraordinarily narrow) historical understanding of the conflict that we call the Civil War. In their imaginations, it goes something like this: With passions inflamed by a moral renaissance in the North regarding the institution of slavery in the South, the two sides decided to go to war over the issue. In the end, the evil South was righteously razed by the armies of the North, and thus, slavery was ended, and the former slaves made American citizens, as Abraham Lincoln intended.

This issue has always been at the heart of the internal data that was never turned over for review. For two years people have wanted to know the distinction and general health position of the people who were categorized as dying from COVID. What was their previous health status? For reasons that can only be reconciled by admitting it was purposeful to their objectives, the CDC never released any information showing the background health status of those who were categorized as dying from COVID. However, recently the CDC said they were going to assemble those various subsets of key data for the public.  CORRECTION*
