Almost daily, we read reports of those individuals who chose to not get vaccinated or worse yet, also spread misinformation about the virus and the vaccine have become infected and are now hospitalized. Honestly, I’ve had enough. When I hear that one of them has died, I only feel relief that the virus has one less opportunity to mutate and spread. I have no sympathy for the deceased.
I say it is time to turn up the heat on Covid Deniers as they are giving aid and comfort to the enemy. Here are some of my suggestions.
- The Justice Department should allow any private insurer to reject any medical claims to their policy holders who have not been vaccinated and have since become infected and need medical care.
- In the case of those on Medicare, any costs associated with a Covid infection to those not vaccinated will be deducted from Social Security payments.
- In the case of Medicaid or anyone unable to pay what their insurance company will no longer cover, any care they receive will be provided on a “stand by” basis by the hospitals, meaning that should a hospital reach its capacity and had non vaccinated patients, those patients will be removed from the hospital and sent to a non-medical holding area in order to open up a bed for a vaccinated individual who needs a bed.
Yes, these are rather barbaric, possibly selfish, and cruel……but no more so than refusing to get the vaccine and spreading misinformation about the virus.
