Tony’s Virus: Chapter 7: The High Death Rates in New York Hospitals

October 1, 2020- by Steven E. Greer, MD

Just as my unusual career experiences made me ideally suited to spot the tragedy unfolding inside nursing homes, so too did they allow me to be the very first person to declare that the high death rates in New York hospitals were a unique “New York problem” caused by poor healthcare. As a surgery resident, when I was conducting my clinical wound trials 20-years ago, I moonlighted as a doctor in Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in Brooklyn. That was one of the hot spots for the outbreak in 2020. I have seen the atrocious care delivered by these Cuomo-state-run hospitals even during normal non-pandemic times. I detailed it all in an essay.[1] I knew that there was no way they were handling the Wuhan virus patients properly. Sadly, I was right.

On April 9th, I told Joe Piscopo and his audience,


“Now, because of politics, Governor Cuomo is actually making it harder to get hydroxychloroquine. I think in the hotspots of these Queens hospitals, where people are dying by the thousands each day, I think a lot of them are not getting these medicines when there’s plenty of medicine to go around, and if that’s true—and if I find that out—that’s going to be a big story.

Um, because all of the deaths across the nation . . . it’s easy to look at the numbers, but it’s really not that simple. It’s where these numbers are coming from. They’re being skewed by one or two hospitals in Queens. And so, it’s very unrepresentative. The actual national death rate is much, much lower and it’s because of the care they’re getting…

It would not surprise me if you go to Elmhurst Hospital, Wycoff Hospital where they’ve got 1,000 people dying a day, that they’re not getting hydroxychloroquine. It wouldn’t surprise me…

I was the person who said ventilators are a red herring, a distraction of the political game. “How can we blame Trump and all that stuff?” The ventilators are too late. By the time you’re on it, you’ve got acute respiratory distress syndrome, and, like you said, 86% die. That’s not going solve this. We need to get millions and millions and millions of doses of these drugs out to everybody, and then, of course, a vaccine.”[2]


On April 16th, I echoed those comments on One American News.[3]

At that same time, early in the outbreak, the world was praising hospital workers only as heroes. Therefore, I received some hostile pushback when I challenged that tenet.

To be clear, the vast majority of these hospital workers were indeed heroes who went to work knowing that they were literally risking their lives. They saw patients dying and were not given adequate protective gear. We knew little about the real virulence of the virus. This was a genuine pandemic as far as we all knew at the time. Therefore, for them to still go to work was the dictionary definition of heroism.

But then strange reports from visiting nurses from other states, where the healthcare delivered to Wuhan virus patients was much different, began to be posted online. In video testimonials, they detailed the horrors they witnessed in New York hot spot hospitals. An April 27th Daily Mail article detailed the scandal.[4] A second nurse came forward as well.[5]

At Elmhurst Hospital, Wyckoff Heights Medical Center, etc., the administrators of the hospitals had instructed there to be separate hospice wards, essentially, for the sick patients on ventilators. However, the two concepts of giving someone a highly-advanced form of medical care via a ventilator and providing only palliative hospice care are diametrically opposed. Of course, as mentioned in previous chapters, we now know why this insanity arose. It was part of a Medicare/Medicaid fraud scheme to reap the $39,000 DRG payments for “COVID plus ventilator”.

But ventilators must be managed by experts every hour on the hour or else the air pressure can blow out delicate lung alveoli. Well, due to negligence, that is exactly what was happening. The patients set aside in “hospice” wards were being killed by the ventilators.

Moreover, most of the ICU patients likely could have been treated with a cocktail of therapies and never have progressed to the critically-ill stage in the first place. But hydroxychloroquine was banned by Governor Cuomo and his Democrat cabal of governors in other states, and remdesivir, steroids, blood thinners, and convalescent plasma were not offered in most cases.

This strategy of dealing with the sickest Wuhan virus patients needlessly killed many thousands of people, one could argue. We will never truly know the number who could have been saved because the medical records have been forged or deleted, according to the whistleblowers.

A White House briefing displayed the deaths by city. The top graph line is New York City, which dwarfs the others.

Clearly, the death toll seen in the New York and New Jersey metropolitan aera was unique to the region. There is no biologically plausible explanation for the differences in deaths between the New York region and the rest of the country. All signs point to human error.
