Shocking statistics regarding Canada’s Omicron hospitalizations being incorrect has come to light recently. The Premier of Alberta has claimed a staggering 60% disparity between the actual figures.
Alberta Premier Jason Kenney and Alberta Chief Medical Officer Deena Hinshaw both confirmed that public figures for ICU capacity and COVID admissions were up to 60% incorrect.
Kenney disclosed in a Facebook live video webcast on Tuesday that a considerable percentage of COVID-labeled admissions in Alberta hospitals were incidental cases, meaning they were hospitalized for some other cause but came back positive by regular screening and were not sick with COVID.
Kenney noted that a differentiation would have to be established amongst persons who “had been admitted to hospital where the primary diagnosis and sickness of concern is COVID-19, versus… people who had been admitted for other maladies,” and were later discovered via periodic inspection.
“Of the 163 omicron patients in hospital, 66 have a primary COVID diagnosis … and of the 14 omicron patients in ICU, 11 have a primary COVID diagnosis,” he stated.
