CORONAVIRUS 'Vigilante treatments': Anti-vaccine groups push people to leave ICUs

Iím OK with this.

[link:https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news/vigilante-treatments-anti-vaccine-groups-push-people-leave-icus-rcna2233|

Anti-vaccine Facebook groups have a new message for their community members: Donít go to the emergency room, and get your loved ones out of intensive care units.

Consumed by conspiracy theories claiming that doctors are preventing unvaccinated patients from receiving miracle cures or are even killing them on purpose, some people in anti-vaccine and pro-ivermectin Facebook groups are telling those with Covid-19 to stay away from hospitals and instead try increasingly dangerous at-home treatments, according to posts seen by NBC News over the past few weeks.

5. So everyone else at home can get sick and die too?

How soon before we see stories about whole families who aren't heard from for a while and then found dead from Covid in their home?

6. Absolutely

And let me just add - I am retired nurse, reaching out to other medical professionals. I understand how convenient it is to wear scrubs to and from work especially when your butt is dragging but depending on where you live, consider it might not be a good idea to advertise your profession. Throw some sweats on over your scrubs, don't hang your badge, parking permit or stethoscope from your mirror, don't be a target for the crazies. If you need to walk to a parking lot alone at 3am, call security for an escort, they will probably enjoy the diversion at that hour. Be safe.

7. Who starts these things?

I would love for the FBI or some agency to investigate who the first people are to put these ideas into the public conversation. Don't take vaccines! They make you infertile! Ivermectin is good! Hospitals are bad! Liberals just want to boss you around!

And the targets all just dance along, thinking themselves "clever, and classless, and free", and passing the ideas along to everyone. But there is a source; what is it?

(I've been wondering for years who writes the stupid propaganda emails that my Fox-Trumpy sister-in-law has been sending me for years. And before that, my dad's right-wing brother used to send them to my dad; this far predates Trump.)

8. Sounds good to me.

More dead Magats will go a long ways to Making America Great Again.

And it will leave ICU space for those that believe in science and medicine.
