CNN anchor Jake Tapper and Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the network’s top medical correspondent, agreed Monday the method being used by the government to report COVID-19 hospitalizations is explicitly “misleading.”
What is the background?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which manages COVID data reporting, does not distinguish between people hospitalized for COVID (meaning complications from the virus caused them to be hospitalized) or people hospitalized with COVID (meaning people who test positive for COVID after being admitted for reasons unrelated to the virus).

In a rare moment of lucidity, mainstream media gets something correct. Everyone pause for a moment of thanks.
- CDC’s Walensky was confronted “for COVID” numbers versus “with COVID” numbers, but she couldn’t give them. Supposedly, that data is forthcoming. (Don’t hold your breath)
- NY data show that more people were hospitalized for reasons not related to COVID but then tested positive for COVID after being admitted.
- CNN managed to cough up that COVID hospitalizations are likely inflated and are therefore ‘misleading.’
- CNN’s Dr. Gupta even agreed stating there needs to be transparency.
- Walensky faces increasing criticism over CDC-waffles. Recently, she reported a CDC study that showed 75% of COVID deaths after “vaccination” have ‘at least four comorbidities.’
“Contrary to popular belief, CDC Director, disabled people aren’t just data points … How callous to say you’re encouraged by the prospect of their deaths,” Imani Barbarin, a disability rights activist, wrote.
Matthew Cortland, a lawyer who suffers from a chronic illness, tweeted: “It is ‘encouraging’ to [Walensky] that chronically ill and disabled Americans are dying … our deaths clearly don’t count.”
And these sentiments exemplify what this website has been desperately trying to highlight: human health is individual and highly complex. Medicine should never be a “one-size fits all” box where human beings are given the same exact formula. Time for real medical professionals to stand up for what is common, logical knowledge in the real world of facts.
