Hospitals worldwide are being swamped with patients suffering from serious illnesses that are not believed to be COVID-related. Health officials say that the phenomenon is due to people avoiding visits to the doctor during the pandemic, and paying for it later. Others say that emergency rooms are filling up with people with vaccine injuries.
Mark McGowan, the premier of Western Australia said in a recent interview that the country is seeing a huge uptick in hospitalizations, and no one knows why.
“Our hospitals are under enormous pressure,” McGowan said in an interview with Sky News Australia on Oct. 31. “This is the same in Tasmania, South Australia, New South Wales, Queensland, and Victoria. This has been something no one has ever seen before, the growth in demand in our hospitals, why it is is hard, hard to know, except that there evidence of some sort of delayed reaction to COVID, but there is huge numbers of people coming through the door, so we’re doing everything we can to try to manage it.”

Independent journalist Alex Berenson suggested that the health emergencies have less to do with COVID, than the vaccines for COVID.
“To be clear, Covid is not causing the hospital crisis in Western Australia,” Berenson wrote on Substack. “The state has incredibly strict border restrictions, even by Australian standards, and almost no cases.” He added, “but like the rest of Australia – it has very high vaccination rates.”
In a post Thursday, libertarian financial website Zero Hedge reported “something really strange is happening in hospitals all over America.”
Emergency rooms are filled to overflowing all over America, and nobody can seem to explain why this is happening. Right now, the number of new COVID cases in the United States each day is less than half of what it was just a couple of months ago. That is really good news, and many believe that this is a sign that the pandemic is fading.
Unexpectedly, however, as more Americans get vaccinated, emergency rooms across America are seeing an influx of patients with serious health issues.
Michigan Radio reported on October 29: “ERs Are Swamped With Seriously Ill Patients, Although Many Don’t Have Covid.”
Inside the emergency department at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, Michigan, staff members are struggling to care for patients showing up much sicker than they’ve ever seen.
Tiffani Dusang, the ER’s nursing director, practically vibrates with pent-up anxiety, looking at patients lying on a long line of stretchers pushed up against the beige walls of the hospital hallways. “It’s hard to watch,” she said in a warm Texas twang.
But there’s nothing she can do. The ER’s 72 rooms are already filled.
Doctors and nurses told NPR that the the illnesses they’re been treating include abdominal pain, respiratory problems, blood clots, heart conditions and suicide attempts, among other conditions.
One patient featured in the article complained of painful tingling in his arms for over a week.
He couldn’t hold a cup of coffee. A nurse gave him a full physical exam in a brown recliner, which made him self-conscious about having his shirt lifted in front of strangers. “I felt a little uncomfortable,” he whispered. “But I have no choice, you know? I’m in the hallway. There’s no rooms.”
Even in parts of the country where covid isn’t overwhelming the health system, patients are showing up to the ER sicker than before the pandemic, their diseases more advanced and in need of more complicated care.
Sweden, too, according to reports, is seeing an “increase in seriously ill people in the emergency room – no one knows why.”
Sveriges Radio reported on October 14 that “the emergency rooms in Jönköping and Värnamo are heavily congested, and both clinics receive more seriously ill patients than usual.”
No one can certainly answer why this is so, but Magnus Cernerud, who is head of the emergency room in Värnamo, believes that this may be partly due to the fact that some people have avoided seeking care in time during the pandemic.
“It will be interesting to look at what this is about. Research will certainly be done on this,” says Johan Björk, head of the emergency room in Jönköping.
In recent months, Berensen has been reporting that deaths in Western Europe, especially Great Britain and Germany have been running higher than normal. The United States, he said, is also seeing an increase in deaths in people under 50.
“Another possibility, and I hesitate to say this out loud because I know what the response will be,” Berenson told Fox News host Tucker Carlson last month, “is that this is cardiac related and it has something to do with the mass vaccination campaigns.”
“All we know is people are dying in unprecedented rates in the U.S. in the 20 to 50 age group, and now we’re seeing excess mortality in some European countries,” he added.
