Minnesota Puts White People at the Back of the Queue For Life-Saving COVID-19 Treatment

Points system prioritizes people of color.

The Minnesota Department of Health has published a document which instructs hospitals to discriminate against white people by ensuring non-white patients have priority access when it comes to potentially life-saving COVID-19 treatments.

Yes, really.

The instruction is contained in a document titled ‘Ethical Framework for Allocation of Monoclonal Antibodies during the COVID-19 Pandemic’.

It states that “race and ethnicity alone, apart from other underlying health conditions, may be considered in determining eligibility for mAbs [monoclonal antibodies].”

Monoclonal antibodies are made in a lab and work by mimicking natural antibodies, which help the body to fight disease.

National supplies of the antibodies are running low because they have successfully been used to treat active COVID cases.

“Minnesota’s solution is to ration mAbs based on various health factors, each assigned a different score,” explains Alpha News.

“The maximum number of points a patient can amass is 24. Antibodies will be distributed based on these scores (highest numbers receiving treatment first) where supplies run low.”

Two of the health factors for deciding who gets priority include being BIPOC (2 points) and pregnancy (4 points)

“Based on this scoring metric, if two pregnant women, one black and the other white, visited a hospital with limited mAbs supplies, the black woman would receive priority because her score would be six, but the white woman’s score would only be four,” writes Kyle Hooten.

The news outlet obtained a document which shows how HealthPartners is “directing its employees to use the scoring system, racial element included, to decide who gets mAbs treatment during shortages.”

Is this what they call ‘white privilege’?

In all seriousness, this is yet another example of how systemic racism does indeed still exist, only it’s almost exclusively directed against white people.

“As you might expect in a healthcare system increasingly dominated by the government, monoclonal antibodies have been rationed,” writes Dave Blount.

“In Minnesota, who gets them is determined by a point system. Being anything other than white counts for the same number of points as being 65 years or older.”

Since the west became transfixed by two main issues over the last two years – purported racial injustice and the the COVID-19 pandemic – calls for hospital treatment to be rationed on those two factors have grown.

We previously highlighted how NHS hospitals in Britain have already reserved the right to deny treatment to people they deem to be “sexist” and “racist.”

Numerous prominent people have also called for the unvaccinated to be made to pay for their own hospital treatment or be denied treatment altogether for refusing to take the jab.

Several hospitals across America are also insisting that patients take the COVID-19 vaccination before proceeding with organ transplants, effectively condemning the patients to death if they still refuse to take it.

Study Claims More Kids Are Fat And Unhealthy Because Of GLOBAL WARMING

Not because they are fed crap and encouraged to vegetate in front of iPads and TVs?

A study published in the journal Temperature has claimed that there is a correlation between rising temperatures and children becoming fatter and more unhealthy.

The study claims that climate change is causing more children to stay inside, eat more, and be generally less active.

CBS Mornings covered the “findings” this past weekend, noting that almost a third of kids are less fit than they were a generation ago.

It also notes that fewer children are engaging in physical activity for 60 minutes a day.

The core argument of the study concerns “heat stress assessment” and claims that it is more ‘dangerous’ and less fun for children to be active if it’s warmer outside.

Critics have noted that the study uses stats recorded during the COVID lockdowns, and as such it may be skewed.

It notes “Climate change will not only exert direct effects like higher ambient temperatures in many regions but it will also be responsible for indirect effects that can independently affect child physical activity habits, for example as observed during the Covid-19 global pandemic.”

Perhaps the fact that children are becoming obese and unhealthy is more to do with the fact that their parents increasingly feed them unhealthy (more affordable) food, coupled with the fact that society encourages, protects and even celebrates unhealthy lifestyles.

This point was recently amplified by Bill Maher, who noted that “It’s Orwellian how often positivity is used to describe what’s not healthy!”

    In 2019, the average American racks up costs of $1,376 for medications after adjusting for purchasing power parity, almost 2.5 times the OECD average of $571 and still 47 percent more than the next biggest spender, Germany. Canada and Japan followed in third and fourth place, both with spending that was around 40 percent higher than average, at $811 and $803, respectively. The OECD members with the least spending on pharmaceuticals and were Mexico and Costa Rica, while spending was also below average in many Eastern European and Scandinavia nations.

    Prescription drugs made up the bulk of pharmaceutical spending in most countries. English-speaking nations on the list, including the United States, Canada, Australia and the UK, shared the characteristic of above-average spending on over-the-counter meds despite their overall expenditure levels diverging quite a bit.

    Government and government-mandated insurance covered 55 percent of total pharmaceutical spending across OECD nations, with the share as high as 80 percent in Germany and France. That number was 70 percent in the United States. Across Scandinavia and Eastern Europe, out-of-pocket spending often hovered around 50 percent, hitting as much as 97 percent in Costa Rica.
