Something is not right about the Covid-19 pandemic.
I wonder why the Centers for Disease Control suddenly came out with an instruction manual allowing deaths to be reported on a death certificate as being from COVID-19, even if they were not sure of the cause? The instructions say: “In cases where a definite diagnosis of COVID–19 cannot be made, but it is suspected...it is acceptable to report COVID–19 on a death certificate as “probable” or “presumed.”
I wonder why Medicare pays hospitals $13,000 for COVID-19 patients, and pays $35,000 if the patient is on a ventilator. Why are they paying so much for COVID-19 patients, while this was never done before with other illnesses?
I wonder if masks really prevent small viruses from passing though their weave, and if social distancing prevents transmission of the virus, if the air is in motion all the time, especially when people enter an exit a building, and from air conditioning. If the six feet of air space is not static, but is moving all around the building and under plastic shields by the cash registers, why are we told to stay six feet apart?
Has anyone else wondered about these things, and if something does not seem right about this pandemic, and what we are told?
