NEW YORK (PNN) - April 1, 2020 - People who question mainstream media’s claims of hospitals looking like war zones due to floods of people infected and dying from the coronavirus have filmed scenes at hospitals that appear empty, as though the narrative has been invented. Other facilities have claimed to be overrun with people who want to be tested for the virus, but most testing stations are also empty.
Phyllis and William Mack Pavilion Hospital in Manhattan: One man in the emergency room, refrigerated truck on hand, but nothing happening. Bellevue Hospital: Looks empty from the street view. Kings County Hospital: 10 people standing around but not busy. Brooklyn Hospital: not crowded despite media claims to the contrary. No lines or chaos. Emergency ward in Jamaica Hospital: full and had people waiting; important to know that this hospital provides discount and free services to low-income community and is always busy.
Man in Seattle shows that there is nobody in the Multicare Medical Center emergency waiting room except the security guard. He returned two weeks later and the waiting room was still empty with only a few people milling about the room.
Youtuber Jason Jones confronted Donna Schmidt, the CEO of Urgent Care Hawaii, who claimed that the medical facilities were overwhelmed by coronavirus testing requests, but when he visited an urgent care location, it was empty. She tried to knock the journalist’s phone out of his hand while he was filming.
Norton East Hospital and Baptist East Hospital, both in Louisville, Kentucky, had empty emergency rooms. University of Louisville Hospital was also empty in the waiting area.
