Nursing Homes Shocked at ‘Insanely Wrong’ CMS Data on COVID-19
— One facility supposedly had eight coronavirus deaths for each bed
When the administrator of the Saugus Rehab and Nursing Center in Saugus, Massachusetts, heard that a new Medicare website reported her facility had 794 confirmed cases of COVID-19 — the second highest in the country — and 281 cases among staff, she gasped.
“Oh my God. Where are they getting those numbers from?” said Josephine Ajayi. “That doesn’t make any sense.”
Those weren’t the numbers that her facility reported to the CDC’s National Healthcare Safety Network, under new rules from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), she said. (Please see link for article)
Misinformation From CDC and Other Agencies
Dr. Pam Popper reads a letter from a colleague working in a hot-spot who states that although he’s treated hundreds with COVID, not ONE has died. This colleague is part of a franchise with two dozen other facilities whom have seen a total of three deaths. He states they’ve used five different tests, all of which have serious defects, many recalled, contaminated, and inaccurate. Regarding testing, the colleague stated,
“I’m confident that the new ones like the old ones that we used are complete crap.”
The colleague then goes on to state that successful treatments like azithromycin, HCQ, vitamin D, ultraviolet phototherapy, etc. is openly denied and labeled as dangerous, while dangerous steroid drugs, remdesivir, and ventilation seem to be accepted as “best practices” and continued at all costs. The colleague then goes on to say practitioners understand that financial incentives control what will be used and not used for patient care. An expensive and useless drug will actually reach prime markets.

She also touches upon the way COVID-19 deaths are counted: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2020/04/11/hospitals-paid-extra-to-list-patients-as-covid19-3x-as-much-if-the-patient-is-on-a-ventilator/
The CDC, just like the WHO waffles back and forth on everything. Recently, the CDC stated that singing in a church choir was a “super spreader” of the virus. They later retracted that but Popper states the damage has already been done, scaring people into submission.
Popper states we need to stand up to this and sing anyway. I couldn’t agree more.
She goes through percentages of asymptomatic cases, which are many. Mainstream media didn’t cover this at all.
- Diamond Princess: 72%
- USS Theodore Roosevelt: 60%
- Tennessee prison: 98%
- Pregnant women in labor: 79%
- Meat packing plant in Missouri: 100%
- Boston homeless population: 87.8%
The CDC has ratcheted the COVID-19 death projection down to about what it is for the seasonal flu, yet we are still prisoners.
Yet, despite this, CDC directives for schools:
- ONE teacher is going to teach all subjects in one room to all the students.
- If you are over the age of 2 you have to wear a face-mask.
- Can’t share equipment
- Desks have to be 6 feet apart
- Stagger arrival and departure times
- Seat 1 child per row and skip rows where possible on buses.
- Tape on the floor and signs on walls to keep everyone apart.
- No dining halls, no recesses.
- Popper states all of this is insane. I agree. Time to homeschool. We are going to raise an entire generation of germaphobes if these directives are followed.
Another perfect example of how COVID-19 numbers should be taken with a grain of salt. Testing is right half the time, hospitals are pressured into calling everything “death by COVID’ and now there is wildly inaccurate nursing home data. This is becoming a comedy of errors. Too bad lives are at stake.
Another senior center in Oklahoma with only 95 beds supposedly had 339 COVID-19 deaths, but no confirmed or suspected cases. Well, that IS a magic trick.
After a download of the data, a quick sort of the columns easily reveals extreme totals in various categories. But no one called those nursing homes before the data were released to doublecheck, for example, when 100-bed Smith Village in Chicago was shown to have 1,105 confirmed COVID-19 cases among residents and 955 confirmed COVID-19 cases among staff, the most in the country.
Combing through details for accuracy appears to be a unwanted task right now.
