While under questioning from Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO), Redfield actually used the words "perverse incentive" to describe how hospitals are basically forging death certificates for financial gain, something that the alt-media has been warning about for months.
Adm. Brett Giroir from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has similarly conceded that American hospitals are, in fact, labeling deaths from any and all causes as Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) deaths in order to take advantage of the government payouts that are attached to this designation.
Giroir has now openly "acknowledged that the statistics he is getting from the states are over-inflated," according to Rep. Luetkemeyer and others who have been pressing these public officials for information about what is really taking place behind the scenes with regard to the plandemic, which also includes hospitals withholding treatment to induce more deaths.
All of this information and more is coming out as the number of new reported infections in the United States is plateauing, indicating that the narrative is crumbling. At this point, all these government hacks can do is admit to the obvious, or else look like total fools.
During his testimony, Redfield made an interesting comparison between the current Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis and that HIV epidemic, which was built upon many of the same lies and deceptions.
Similar to what is currently transpiring, hospitals back at that time were labeling unrelated deaths as being caused by HIV even when they were not, simply to siphon more money from the government.
"I think you're correct in that we've seen this in other disease processes too, really in the HIV epidemic, somebody may have a heart attack, but also have HIV – the hospital would prefer the [classification] for HIV because there's greater reimbursement," Redfield stated.
"So I do think there's some reality to that. When it comes to death reporting, though, ultimately, it's how the physician defines it in the death certificate and ... we review all of those death certificates."
Redfield claims that some of the deaths that hospitals are reporting could still be causatively related to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), though the true and actual number remains unknown, and could be significantly fewer than what is being reported by the mainstream media.
"So I think, probably it is less operable in the cause of death, although I won't say there are not some cases. I do think though [that] when it comes to hospital reimbursement issues or individuals that get discharged, there could be some play in that for sure," Redfield added.
The official count has reached about 4.5 million "cases" of infection, and around 150,000 deaths, according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker. But, again, these numbers cannot be verified and are likely grossly over-inflated due to corrupted reporting.
"The liberal media, including CNN, NPR, and MSNBC have been aware of this for weeks, but have agreed not to report it since it is contrary to their agenda of advancing fear, hysteria, anxiety, and panic," wrote one Breitbart News commenter about the situation.
"The majority of those who are included in the COVID death counts were going to die from cardiac disease, stroke, respiratory illness regardless. But since they test positive for COVID, that's the listed cause of death. Because hospitals get paid more. Did they even test positive?"
