The Epoch Times recounts the story of Gail Seiler who was in Medical City Plano (Texas) hospital with COVID-19, how her doctor told her she was going to die, how her husband smuggled her out of the hospital, and how she lived to tell about it. Unfortunately, hundreds of thousands of COVID patients were not so fortunate as hospitals prevented family from intervening on government-mandated remdesivir and ventilator protocols that likely killed them. Now, there are an increasing number of lawsuits being filed against these hospitals for their jack-booted treatment of COVID-19 patients, especially in Texas where lawyers estimated that nearly 85% of patients on ventilators for 96 hours died. But that’s not all.
A National Library of Medicine January 2021 report of 69 studies involving over 57,000 patients concluded that fatality rates were 45% among COVID 19 patients receiving ventilator treatment. The fatality rate increased to 84% in older patients. A December 12, 2019 article in the New England Journal of Medicine concluded remdesivir treatments during the 2018 West African Ebola outbreak was discontinued “because mortality exceeded 50%.” Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control published studies indicate a range of 71-75% adverse events caused by remdesivir, and many of the studies documented that remdesivir treatment had to be discontinued after 5-10 days because of adverse events or even worse, death. So why did hospitals continue these draconian treatments?
They were paid a bounty on every death from COVID-19. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) documents and the Federal Register reveals that CMS, as authorized by the CARES Act in March 2020, established the treatments for COVID-19 and the coding system that financially incentivized hospitals to receive bonuses for all things COVID. Hospitals were incentivized to vaccinate, test, diagnose, hospital admission, use add-on treatments such as remdesivir and ventilators, and reporting COVID 19-related deaths. While it is difficult to determine the exact additional amount hospitals receive per patient from initial testing to death on a ventilator because of all the code referrals and legal jargon, sources estimate about $100,000 per patient.
All this points to how the government hastily mandated certain treatments for COVID and incentivized the medical community to use them. This effectively prevented the evolution of COVID treatment as new measures were discovered to work. This lack of flexibility and the subsequent peer pressure in the medical system for doctors to follow the treatment mandates to maintain their licenses essentially turned hospitals into bounty hunters for their patients’ lives. Christ said in John 10:10, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” Most of us have counted on doctors and hospitals to do the right thing when we entrust them to care for us. In this day and age, beware and be wise for there is a great difference between life abundantly and life on a bounty. Gail Seiler knows this first-hand.
