New York declares a health-care state of emergency over a Covid variant that doesn’t exist in the state
Guess what’s actually causing the crisis? Hint: it rhymes with “vaccine schmandate.”
Now this is a lie so brazen even Andrew Cuomo might hesitate to tell it.
New York’s new and unimproved governor, Kathy Hochul, last seen telling you to Get Vaxxed For Jesus (I kid you not), has now declared a “state of emergency” that will allow Health Department bureaucrats to block “non-urgent” medical procedures at hospitals. Because who needs a colonoscopy, anyway?
Hochul says the Xi - I mean Omicron, definitely not Xi! - variant is behind the emergency.
This explanation would be more compelling if even one case of Omicron had been detected ANYWHERE IN THE UNITED STATES.
Gee, I wonder what’s really causing the hospital bed shortages?
Oh well, total mystery.
Nothing to do with the vaccine mandate that went into effect Monday, you can be sure of that. Don’t worry, though, those crack reporters at the NY Times will grill Hochul until the truth comes out!
They say it, we print it! Isn’t that the Times’s motto? I think it was different when I worked there but it was so long ago I hardly remember.
Three days to PANDEMIA… tick, tick, tick.
