Panic in the Matrix? Covid Accounted for Only 2% of Hospitalizations in 2020

ER Editor: This has been quite a stunning revelation this week in France. The French, like many in western countries, were propagandized into going outside at 8pm every night earlier in 2020 to ‘clap for carers’ as they termed it in the UK, imagining that hospitals were saturated with the Covid-sick. To keep us in a heightened state of fear, which we have to admit worked very effectively.

As many of us were aware at the time, however, video clips were going round on social media from individuals in several countries who had taken it upon themselves to investigate their local hospitals, only to find them pretty much deserted. UK hospitals finally made it an offence to film in and around them. Lawyer Dr. Reiner Fuellmich ‘s sister, a nurse in a German hospital, had alerted him to the duplicity going on in her own hospital.

We are reminded ourselves of an episode this year in a central Paris hospital. A specialist, rather obsessed about masks, asked us to raise our mask above our nose, which was not possible without preventing breathing. She was told, ‘I’ve been exposed to this through a family member anyway and never got sick.’ To which the specialist replied, ‘you KNOW somebody who’s had it?’  This doctor probably spends 10 hours a day 5 days a week in this hospital.

One lie – of no doubt many – has now been exposed, through an official report.


Panic in the Matrix: Covid Accounted for Only 2% of Hospitalizations in 2020?


For two days, the statistic has been widely commented on on social networks: in 2020, only 2% of patients hospitalized in France were hospitalized because of Covid-19. Is this a conspiracy theory? Absolutely not. This figure comes from the report of the very serious Agence technique de l’information sur l’hospitalisation (ATIH). (ER: Technical Agency for Information on Hospitalizations)

The statistic has caused a stir: politicians critical of the health policy (Dr. Martine Wonner and Florian Philippot in particular) did not hesitate to relay this report, stressing that the public authorities had acted in a totally disproportionate manner. Many of their compatriots have also reacted to these figures, which give grist to their mill:


Translation:  Hospitalized for Covid = 2% in 2020

Well done, guys! We imposed on them a gel-mask-pass for only 2%!

Translation: #ATIH: In sum, our country spent 200 billion in 2020, locked down twice its population and martyred the psychological state of its youth for 2% of hospital beds and 5% in Emergency. 

Those who ‘reassured’ us, and put in the stocks (Professor Toussaint) were finally right.

The response was swift: the “alarmists” went wild, explaining that this average did not mean anything and did not describe the very high hospital pressure experienced.

It is true that because of its concentration in time (over two waves gathered in a few weeks, around April and November 2020) and space (some regions like the Grand East in the spring were submerged, while others had almost no impact), and because of the duration of covid hospitalization which is on average higher (more than 18 days) than other hospitalizations, the figures smoothed over a calendar year can be misleading. They also recalled that 11% of admissions to intensive care and nearly 20% of the total number of associated hospital days concerned covid patients, according to the same report, and deplored the instrumentalization of this issue.

The fact-checkers have obviously rushed to their keyboards to nip in the bud any attempt to relativize the danger of the epidemic.

“The 2% (and 5% for critical care) percentages are for the number of Covid patients hospitalized, but do not take into account the length of hospitalizations, which was longer for Covid patients than for non-Covid patients, whether for standard hospitalization or critical care. If we look not at the number of admissions, but at the number of hospital days, the percentages almost double. Thus, Covid patients represented 2% of total admissions, but 4% of total hospitalization days in 2020,” reads Libération. (ER: Liberation is a fully establishment-supporting outlet, partially owned by the Rothschilds, who as we know are behind SARS-CoV-2 patents.)

Nevertheless, the ATIH report, while deserving of a nuanced analysis, seriously undermines the idea widely held by the government and most of the media that our hospital services were continually besieged by Covid patients, to the point of taking all the liberty-destroying measures that we know.

This is what Martin Blachier (ER: one of the infamous medical stooges wheeled out for months on TV to support the government’s position) declared, in an iconoclastic statement of which he has the secret, on the set of LCP in front of stunned interlocutors:

“It is true that when you are reading this report of the ATIH you are a little surprised. You say to yourself that we are talking about this year 2020 where there were two lockdowns, it cost France 200 billion. We know that 35% of young people have declared having suicidal thoughts because of these lockdowns. And I’m not even talking about the learning delays, the school phobias that we have in children.”

It will be interesting to see the possible governmental reactions to this report, as the National Assembly has just extended the state of health emergency until July 31. The health pass was supposed to last until this Monday, November 15. The extension is now possible and even certain since the speech of Emmanuel Macron this past week.

Apart from confirming that it is very difficult to put things into perspective without unleashing passions, the report has the merit of officially reminding us of a reality to which the professional peddlers of fear seem to find it difficult to resign themselves: it is not so much the absolute dangerousness of covid that was a major public health risk as the risk related to the state of our hospital system, which is so lacking in caregivers, and therefore in beds, and in various means, that it is chronically, even structurally overwhelmed, to the point of not being able to absorb an epidemic episode that was certainly serious, but which was not the announced apocalypse – nor even the apocalypse that was avoided, contrary to what those who love lockdowns say.


Translation: Here, everyone is right. Certainly Covid-19 represented a large part of the days in the hospitals but we can even argue that it’s not acceptable to have been overwhelmed for a large country like France, and that the lockdown was not worth it

A state of abandonment of the public hospital which, as we know, has only worsened in 2020 and 2021, despite the Segur and other fine declarations, between resignations, suspensions of caregivers and associated bed closures.

Beyond this issue, the ATIH report is rich in various lessons: we will come back to it in a future article.
