NEW YORK — A physician who appears as a medical contributor on Leftist cable channel MSNBC is calling for people to start wearing masks again – especially children going back to school.
The network claimed on Tuesday that COVID hospitalizations are “up 12 percent” and accelerating. Anchor Jose Diaz-Balart introduced the segment with the same fear mongering narrative that legacy media inundated Americans with during the so-called pandemic.
“If you've noticed more of your friends, neighbors, loved ones are testing positive for COVID, you’re not alone. According to the CDC, COVID-19 hospitalizations are up 12 percent from last week,” Diaz-Balart said.
He then brought on Dr. Kavita Patel, a former Obama administration official and MSNBC medical contributor. She chimed in with the anchor, claiming that she was seeing COVID hospitalizations “going up.”
Dr. Patel then went on a pro-masking rant – something that’s been an unusual occurrence for nearly a year now, since many people have woken up to the manipulative and propagandized media campaign that promoted bizarre and authoritarian COVID countermeasures such as masking and social distancing.
“When you’re in those crowded spaces, think about the cost of colds and sometimes many people don’t have any symptoms, a mask can be your best friend, keep it – back in time we had them in our pockets, in our coats and our backpacks, time to bring them out again, especially as the school season starts. We don't want to see kids missing school for things we could have prevented,” Dr. Patel stated.
