Is DHHS Commissar Shibinette Spreading COVID Misinformation?

Orwell 1984 Two Minutes Mask Hate

Recall back in September when Department of Health and Human Services Commissioner Lori Shibinette unloaded on Rep. Ken Weyler for spreading COVID “misinformation”?

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The head of New Hampshire’s health department on Friday accused a Republican lawmaker of spreading misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine. … Shibinette was telling the Legislature’s fiscal committee that 90% of those hospitalized in New Hampshire due to the coronavirus are unvaccinated when she was interrupted by Rep. Ken Weyler of Kingston. “That is in doubt,” he said, adding that he has heard from emergency room workers who say 90% of those admitted have been vaccinated. “That is incorrect and that is misinformation,” Shibinette told him, … “I have no idea why someone would say that but that is incorrect, and that is the problem that we are having in increasing our vaccination rate: spreading misinformation about the Covid vaccine.”

Well … it appears that Shibinette may also have been spreading “misinformation”:

Obviously Redfield is talking about Maryland. But why should the breakdown be any different in New Hampshire?

And while not everyone hospitalized for COVID dies of COVID, why would the breakdown for total hospitalizations between the vaccinated and unvaccinated be lower than the percentage breakdown for deaths? If anything, you would expect a higher percentage of COVID-vaccinated among total hospitalizations given the claims that the COVID-vaccines prevent serious illness and death.

Shibinette has some ‘splaining to do.
