A compilation of important documentation and media stories highlighting significant treatment (or lack thereof) & health directive protocol issues which likely contributed to high morbidity rates in elderly, hospitalized individuals & others in early death clusters occurring in Spring of 2020 and beyond. Blanket Do Not Resuscitate orders were issued against vulnerable populations including the learning disabled, the elderly, and the mentally ill. Health Professionals (all citizens) are urged to engage in independent review of data, official narratives are not supported by actual review of public health organization data and research trials.

Midazolam weighs heavy in this story, important video:
“The ICU wards were comparatively empty,” said Dr Cecilia Söderberg-Nauclér, of Karolinska University Hospital. “Elderly people were not taken to hospitals—they are given sedatives but not oxygen or basic care.”
Yngve Gustafsson, a geriatrics specialist at Umea University, told the BMJ that the proportion of older people in respiratory care nationally was lower than at the same time a year before, even though people over 70 were the worst affected by Covid-19. He, too, was aghast at the practice of doctors prescribing a “palliative cocktail” for sick older people in care homes over the telephone.
“It’s active euthanasia, to say the least.”
Doctors: Execution drugs could help COVID-19 patients
A group of medical professionals is asking death penalty states for medications used both for lethal injections and to help coronavirus patients who are on ventilators
Drugs being requested include the sedative midazolam, the paralytic vecuronium bromide and the opioid fentanyl. They're needed because putting a patient on a ventilator “with no drugs ... would be torture,” said Zivot, an associate professor of anesthesiology and surgery at Emory University in Atlanta who has studied medicine’s role in capital punishment.
Ventilator Use Found to Significantly Increase Lethal Outcomes:
Generally speaking, 40% to 50% of patients with severe respiratory distress die while on ventilators, experts say. But 80% or more of coronavirus patients placed on the machines in New York City have died, state and city officials say.
A NYC physician stated that 'I believe we are treating the wrong disease' and warned against ventilator use:
“We are operating under a medical paradigm that is untrue,” Kyle-Sidell warned. “I believe we are treating the wrong disease, and I fear that this misguided treatment will lead to a tremendous amount of harm to a great number of people in a very short time.
Autopsies conducted on individuals in early Covid-19 attributed deaths found bacterial blood infections and thrombosis were the actual cause of illness, not Covid-19:
"Doctors in Italy, Germany and India who autopsied patients found many COVID-19 cases are actually BACTERIAL rather than a virus. Many cases point to thrombosis as cause of death. Recommended treatments should include blood thinners such as simple aspirin.
In Italy doctors who broke with the World Health Organization (WHO) protocols were able to effectively treat COVID-19 once they recognized many cases were nothing other than “Disseminated intravascular coagulation” (Thrombosis).
Having discovered this diagnosis, the Italian Ministry of Health immediately changed the coronavirus treatment protocols and began to administer to their CV-19 positive patients Aspirin 100mg and Apronax. These patients began to recover and as a result of this new method, the Ministry of Health released and sent home more than 14,000 patients in a single day".
This coincides with studies finding a very high rate of bacterial and fungal infections in ICU patients with attributed Covid-19 diagnosis:
"This study aimed to investigate the frequency and characteristics of respiratory co-infections in COVID-19 patients in the intensive care unit (ICU). In this retrospective observational study, pathogens responsible for potential co-infections were detected by the bacterial culture, real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), or serological fungal antigen tests. Demographic and clinical characteristics, as well as microbial results, were analyzed. Bacterial culture identified 56 (58.3%) positive samples for respiratory pathogens, with the most common bacteria being Burkholderia cepacia (18, 18.8%). RT-PCR detected 38 (76.0%) and 58 (87.9%) positive results in the severe and critical groups, respectively.
Most common pathogens detected were Stenotrophomonas maltophilia (28.0%) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (28.0%) in the severe group and S. maltophilia (45.5%) in the critical group. P. aeruginosa was detected more during the early stage after ICU admission. Acinetobacter baumannii and S. aureus were more frequently identified during late ICU admission. Fungal serum antigens were more frequently positive in the critical group than in the severe group, and the positive rate of fungal serum antigens frequency increased with prolonged ICU stay. A high frequency of respiratory co-infections presented in ICU COVID-19 patients. Careful examinations and necessary tests should be performed to exclude these co-infections".
Stenotrophomonas maltophilia is the most common pathogen identified occurring in this study at a very high rate of 28%.
S Maltophillia causes necrosis of soft tissue and could explain the lung damage seen in severe hospitalized patients with Covid-19 attributed infections. It also has been documented to cause blood infections which can lead to clotting.
"Blanket Do Not Resuscitate Orders, Investigations Now Occurring Due to Policy Resulting in Avoidable Deaths in Vulnerable Populations:
People with learning disabilities have been given do not resuscitate orders during the second wave of the pandemic, in spite of widespread condemnation of the practice last year and an urgent investigation by the care watchdog.
Mencap said it had received reports in January from people with learning disabilities that they had been told they would not be resuscitated if they were taken ill with Covid-19.
The Care Quality Commission said in December that inappropriate Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (DNACPR) notices had caused potentially avoidable deaths last year".
This also applied to anyone with a diagnosis of mental illness:
And, in the UK, over half of adult Covid-19 attributed patients were given do not resuscitate orders:
Less than 1 in 5 patients – 18 per cent – was admitted to the intensive care unit
61% of Covid-19 patients had treatment limitations on them at top NHS hospital
Were denied access to potentially life-saving care at King’s College Hospital
For a period of a week, EMS was directed to resuscitate NO ONE on the rationalization contagion risk from Covid-19 too dangerous. Outrage stopped the policy. How many individuals died in this time span due to lack of emergency intervention by EMS?
"New York state officials have scrapped controversial new guidelines that directed emergency service workers not to attempt to revive anyone without a pulse when they arrive on a scene during the coronavirus pandemic.
State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker “rescinded” the “do-not-resuscitate” order put out by his Bureau of Emergency Medical Service on Wednesday — just hours after The Post exclusively reported on it.
“This guidance, proposed by physician leaders of the EMS Regional Medical Control Systems and the State Advisory Council — in accordance with American Heart Association guidance and based on standards recommended by the American College of Emergency
Physicians and adopted in multiple other states — was issued April 17, 2020 at the recommendation of the Bureau of Emergency Medical Services, and reflected nationally recognized minimum standards,” the Health Department said in a statement".
The fight to save the life of one woman reveals a grim pattern: In Oregon, people with disabilities were denied health care during the Covid-19 attributed pandemic:
“Oregon hospitals didn’t have shortages. So why were people with disabilities denied care?”
"And on Dec. 8, Oregon announced new "crisis care principles" for health care providers, who were then facing a surge of new COVID-19 patients. Once again, there was fear of needing to ration scarce care. This time, the guidance from the Oregon Health Authority focused on the responsibility of doctors and hospitals to provide care in ways that did not discriminate against people on the basis of disability, race and other categories protected by civil rights law.
"Any approach to triaging care," the new guidance said, cannot "exclude" someone on the basis of an underlying medical condition or a disability. Dana Hargunani, the Oregon Health Authority's chief medical officer, told NPR that the agency is asking doctors and hospitals "to really consider the role that implicit bias has played."
There was early publicized discussion about major hospitals debating blanket DNR, it is unclear to what extent policies were enacted:
'Worry that ‘all hands’ responses may expose doctors and nurses to infection prompts debate about prioritizing the survival of the many over the one'
