Can You Guess How NYC Decides Who Get's Covid Tests? It's Disgusting
New York City pandemic officials spoke in code when they explained that Covid test kits will be rationed out to certain people. One stipulation to their new rules is that you must be a person impacted by 'social inequalities' which is the new term used by the left to describe any persons of color.
New York Post broke the news so let's look at their details:
"New York City health officials have been using race to help decide how to allocate precious coronavirus testing resources, leaked emails from the agency show.
In a conversation with reps for the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, City Councilman Joe Borelli’s office said constituents on Staten Island’s South Shore were having trouble getting tested at city facilities.
“Our office has been receiving calls regarding the mobile NYC H+H testing sites such as Wolfes Pond Park. It appears many are waiting with delays, and are being turned away after waiting for hours,” wrote Borelli staffer Briana Nasti in a Dec. 22 email.
The agency responded the same day and informed Nasti that they would prioritize neighborhoods flagged by the city’s Taskforce on Racial Inclusion & Equity."
The report explains that the people making these sessions are part of the 'task force' specialized in handling pandemic issues:
"The task force said [neighborhoods] were picked based a DOHMH’s analysis of “health status, living conditions, social inequities, occupation, and COVID-19 Wave 1 impact” — though the methodology has never been released."
Rather than go by the number of cases, the NYC task force will divide out pandemic supplies based on irrelevant nonsense?
"Staten Island’s mostly white, middle-class South Shore — despite one of the highest COVID rates in the city during December — is not one of the priority neighborhoods. The borough has 13 city testing sites, all on the more diverse North Shore."
How does this make sense to anyone?
