Fauci admitted yesterday on MSNBC that the number of children hospitalized due to COVID are way over inflated:
Fauci says many kids are actually hospitalized “with” Covid, not “from” Covid, so child Covid hospitalization numbers are inflated.pic.twitter.com/IGAPgdgzYD

Here’s what Fauci said:
“Many of them are hospitalized with COVID as opposed to because of COVID. And what we mean by that is if a child goes into the hospital, they automatically get tested for COVID. And they get counted as a COVID-hospitalized individual. When in fact they may go in for a broken leg or appendicitis or something like that. So it’s overcounting the number of children who are “hospitalized” with COVID as opposed to because of COVID.”
In other words the numbers lie, which is what many on the right have been saying since the COVID outbreak. It was revealed well over a year ago that this was happening and that the numbers were falsely inflated. And nothing has changed.
I’m just kinda surprised Fauci admitted it.
