Study Suggests that COVID Hospitalizations and Deaths are up to 50% Bogus

No, this is no is not a Babylon Bee post.

When the zero-credibility far-Left The Atlantic questions COVID hospitalization statistics, maybe a sea change is coming? Or maybe someone over there had a concussion and came to their senses.

The Atlantic: Our Most Reliable Pandemic Number Is Losing Meaning

by David Zweig, 2021-09-13

A new study suggests that almost half of those hospitalized with COVID-19 have mild or asymptomatic cases.

...The study found that from March 2020 through early January 2021—before vaccination was widespread, and before the Delta variant had arrived—the proportion of patients with mild or asymptomatic disease was 36 percent. From mid-January through the end of June 2021, however, that number rose to 48 percent. In other words, the study suggests that roughly half of all the hospitalized patients showing up on COVID-data dashboards in 2021 may have been admitted for another reason entirely, or had only a mild presentation of disease.

...might inflate the true numbers by a factor of two. “As we look to shift from cases to hospitalizations as a metric to drive policy and assess level of risk to a community or state or country,” Doron told me, referring to decisions about school closures, business restrictions, mask requirements, and so on, “we should refine the definition of hospitalization. Those patients who are there with rather than from COVID don’t belong in the metric.”

WIND: can someone tell me how a number that might be wrong by 50% ever was a “reliable pandemic number”? Anyone honest will admit it never was. But how wrong we will probably never know, due to slipshod practices of the medical establishment.

It’s not hard to discount COVID deaths and hospitalizations by at least 25% over the course of the pandemic, due to medical malfeasance in assigning cause. But I had never thought that it might be as high as 50%. And maybe it’s not, but it’s far away from zero. And that’s how we are still making public policy.
