Fact Check: Trump Claims Doctors ‘Get More Money’ for Coronavirus Deaths
CLAIM: “You know, our doctors get more money if somebody dies from COVID. You know that, right? I mean, our doctors are very smart people. So, what they do is they say, ‘I’m sorry, but, you know, everybody dies of COVID,'” President Donald Trump said at a campaign rally in Michigan on Friday, referring to the Chinese coronavirus.
Trump indicated that doctors and hospitals get paid more money if they say people died from the Chinese virus rather than other co-occurring significant health conditions (comorbidities) that may have contributed to the person’s demise, such as cancer or a heart attack.
“With us, when in doubt, choose COVID,” the president said, later adding, “This could only happen to us where cases are now surging.”
VERDICT: MOSTLY TRUE. U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield has suggested that doctors and hospitals have a financial incentive to inflate deaths attributed to the coronavirus.
Police are on the hunt for a man who punched a passenger in the face because he took his mask off on a tram to speak to his nonagenarian mother.
Lancashire Constabulary released images of the suspect on Monday, describing him as a heavy-set 30-year-old, being 5’6″ tall with a shaved head and glasses. At the time of the attack on September 4th, he was dressed all in black with a grey mask across his mouth and nose.
The police force said that the attack occurred at 8:30 pm on a tram in the north-west seaside town of Blackpool. The victim, aged in his sixties, had removed his mask to speak to his mother, who is in her nineties and hard of hearing.
Harvard Goes Full Police State, Asks for Photos and Video of Social Distancing Violations
Accused students judged under undefined evidence standard
Unlike in prison, you're unlikely to get seriously ill with COVID-19 at Harvard University. But like in prison, private eyes are watching your every move.
The Ivy League university not only coerced students into giving up their freedom of association pledging an oath not to violate social distancing rules in order to live on campus, but it's encouraging rat finks to provide evidence of their peers behaving like ordinary college kids.
Harvard created a new online "form for reporting social distancing violations" that includes "space for photos and videos," The Harvard Crimson reports. It basically sounds like a police report, asking the rat fink to provide full details of the incident. (Allegedly they won't be able to file anonymously. Let's see if Harvard keeps it that way.)
Once the newly created Star Chamber "Community Council" receives a report from a rat fink, the "perpetrator" may get an "oral warning" for low-level offenses (undefined) or a formal review for more serious acts of hanging out with people.
