    And, you missed the point of the article.

    The narrative is the hospitals are being overrun BECAUSE of the covid infections. The article points out that ANYONE is admitted, for various reasons. If they test positive (post admission) they are labeled as being a covid victim, which isn't true. Also, a percentage (big, small?) of those who ARE there for covid are either asymptomatic, or have minor symptoms.

    The point of the article, and why I posted it, is anyone can manipulate statistics to fit their narrative. It all depends on how you phrase your wording. The media narrative is that the hospital system (Including Idaho) is being overtaxed because of covid. This article points out that 'may' not be the case.

    Missed the point, hardly. Manipulating statistics is nothing new. But manipulating and pure interpretation of data leading to statistics can create differing opinions without any attempt of manipulation. Dont like what is printed, go to a hospital yourself and make a personal assessment. But, the last paragraph speaks to the “gem” of the study and the value of a vaccine. I suppose thats manipulation also. It’s an aspect of the straw the breaks the camels back. And I’d suppose that you’d assess that both liberals and conservatives manipulate stats to their favor. As does climate change vs non climate change supporters.

    Found out yesterday my former sister-in-law was in the hospital three weeks with covid pneumonia.

    Fully Vaccinated three months ago!

    She is still on oxygen at home and mey be for the rest of her life.

    Her family blames her husband who isn't vaccinated. Says he gave her the virus.

    He had a mild case and that was months ago.

    We are being lied to by our "medical professionals".

    I dont think they realize that they are parroting bad info fed to them by a lying government.
    The narrative has flipped and flopped and juked like OJ Simpson doing an Avis commercial.
    Can't not be a lie since we've been so misinformed so forking always. The "Fauci flip flop ".

    I'd pick a story of a famous vaccinated radio personality dying but I can't find one...
