“On Thursday, the U.K. readjusted a report that initially claimed some 500,000 people would die from the coronavirus in the U.K. and some 2.2 million would perish in the United States. The number for the U.K. was adjusted down to 20,000 deaths, a mere 4 percent of the original estimate, to account for the public health interventions that have since been put in place. …”
(Bronson Stocking – Townhall) During the coronavirus taskforce briefing on Thursday, Dr. Deborah Birx rebuked much of the media’s panic reporting about the number of estimated deaths related to the coronavirus and the state of America’s medical supplies.
Despite clamorous reports about a shortage of medical supplies in New York, Dr. Birx said her colleagues in the state have reassured her that ICU beds are still readily available and more than a thousand ventilators remain unused. Dr. Birx then took the press to task for their hysterical reporting.
“Please, for the reassurance of people around the world,” Dr. Birx begged the press corps, “to wake up this morning and look at people talking about creating DNR situations, do not resuscitate situations for patients, there is no situation in the United States right now that warrants that kind of discussion.”
