New York City is the worst place in the world for COVID-19, by the numbers. The city alone is competing with all of Spain and Italy for total infections, total deaths and per-capita numbers.
If you exclude NYC from U.S. statistics, we’re one of the best countries in the world for handling this. It is the failure of one city alone that is driving coronavirus panic in our country, and around a lot of the world. Worst of all, this isn’t an accident.
You’d think being the worst city in the world for a virus response would be embarrassing for NYC and Mayor Bill de Blasio. Then again, leftists don’t experience shame. Instead, de Blasio is committed to making the catastrophe look even worse. He has publicly announced that his workers will officially include deaths in their tallies of people who were never tested for COVID-19. He wants to cook the books and increase his city’s death toll. He admitted it publicly.
That’s already bad, but the truth is much darker and much worse. Mayor de Blasio isn’t just fabricating high death counts. He deliberately made decisions that would cause more New Yorkers to die from this disease.
The policy for New York hospitals, under de Blasio (and to a lesser extent the state of New York), is to avoid transferring non-COVID patients to other hospitals. When the country was preparing for the inevitable outbreak, the prevailing wisdom was to try and segregate COVID patients from the uninfected. It seems pretty obvious. If COVID sweeps through an ICU of people who are already vulnerable, you’re going to see a lot of death.
From the top down, the order in NYC was to not follow this practice. Instead, COVID patients were deliberately kept in close proximity to the uninfected. This practice has killed thousands. Current estimates are that at least 2,000 people in NYC died because of this policy.
It gets even worse. The USNS Comfort and a field Army hospital were both deployed to help the city deal with the pandemic. The idea was to fill the federal hospitals with uninfected patients so that the city hospitals could focus solely on coronavirus. Every NY hospital refused this policy and kept their uninfected patients. Hundreds more have died from this decision.
This is easily one of the greatest crimes committed by American politicians in modern history. There’s a good chance that Governor Andrew Cuomo, who is a Democrat and has been rumored to be Joe Biden’s replacement, is in on the game. These people are actively trying to kill Americans to make this pandemic worse than it needed to be. That is why New York is doing so much worse than everyone else. But, we have to ask the question. Why would they kill their own people?
There are three answers, and the final truth is probably a mix of all three. First is money. If the epidemic is worse for New York, they get more federal money and resources thrown their way. What’re a few thousand lives for billions in federal aid? Disgusting.
The second is the most obvious. If thousands of Americans die from this disease, they can blame President Trump. Have you ever doubted that leftist politicians would literally kill Americans just to make the president look bad?
The third is the long game. If the pandemic is devastating, they can blame private medicine and use it as an excuse to force (at least locally) government-run health care on the population. It’s similar to how they banned commerce and then tried to blame capitalism for people losing jobs.
This is sick. It’s evil. It’s criminal. The only question from here is this. Will you stand against it, or let it slide?
