" Dr. Billy Lanarze with Ochsner said Wednesday the majority of pediatric COVID-19 patients hospitalized were actually admitted for a different medical reason"

By all means stoke the headline and glaze over this.

Dr Lanarze continues, "...He said critical care for COVID-19 pediatric patients is still rare, but as the virus spreads widely among children, he expects the number of children seriously ill from the virus to also increase."

Again, that's not facts. You're pushing a narrative of speculation without facts to back it up.

From what I've seen from the occurrence of dashes in comments, it seems that words ascribed to some, ummm, fringe sexual activities are given the dash treatment here, even though those words may have useful meanings in other contexts. At one time, the uber thread elf mentioned something along the lines of it was due to the advertisers' preferences.

That doesn't address the quote you tried to counter.

Most of the time when you cherry pick that data set it doesn't say what you think it says.

And I've consistently pointed out and you've consistently ignored that Covid does lasting damage to internal organs to a high percentage of patients, even those with mild or no symptoms. This damage may result in patients being at greater risk from subsequent infections of the virus.

I'm not arguing that. It's in the article for sure. It the Doctor even says it's something he "expects". Not factual. Are you arguing facts or speculation? I thought you were a little fighter than fake doctor, that's on me.

Neither.

I merely posted what was reported as a doctor saying     he expects the number of children seriously ill from the virus to also increase.

No more, no less.

H1N1 does not cause long term organ damage in significant proportions of people.

If you have to lie you've already lost.

Reporting what someone is saying? That's laughable. He just told you the facts and he also just told you what might happen. You're as disingenuous as most of the people on this site who don't give two ----- about facts. Prove me wrong. You may as well work for Alex Jones.
