It’s a Taboo: German ICUs Are Being Overwhelmed by Culture-Enrichers

The following translations (all done in a mammoth effort, in record time, by MissPiggy) concern an exposé published by the German tabloid Bild showing that the government was aware that intensive care units in hospitals were overwhelmingly inhabited by migrants, did nothing to address the issue, and covered up the news about it.

The report has caused shockwaves to spread through the alternative media in Germany. (I haven’t heard of any other MSM outlets following Bild’s lead on it.)

First, a summary of what happened from Politically Incorrect:

Are the Coercive Corona Measures “Thanks” to the Failed Integration Policy?

The COVID Taboo: 90% of ventilator patients have a migration background

[Photo caption: It is mainly migrants who are in intensive care units during the corona crisis]

by the Analyst

THE BILD newspaper is unrecognisable. For quite some time now, the flagship of the mainstream press has been doing exactly what its job is supposed to be: exposing grievances and criticising the accompanying government actions. A brand-new article, which is unfortunately only accessible behind a paywall, proves that THE BILD newspaper dares to touch the very hot poker concerning facts that are taboo in our country.

In the article the reader learns about a conversation that the head of the Robert Koch Institute, Professor Lothar Wieler, recently had with a group of chief physicians. The subject: MD Thomas Voshaar, the chief physician of the lung clinic in the Bethanien hospital in Moers, arranged an internal evaluation of the months between November and December 2020, as well as the beginning of January 2021. This showed that more than 90 percent of the intubated, critically ill Corona patients in the intensive care units had a migration background. Internally, it was agreed to refer to these patients as “patients with a communication barrier”.

The head of the RKI already knew about it

Prof. Wieler was already aware of this problem beforehand. He commented:

“I heard the same thing, but it’s a taboo. I have tried to approach certain people. We have to reach out to this religious group through imams. The whole thing has huge implications for Berlin. It’s a real problem.”

“Oh God, Oh God, Oh God.”

So obviously it is mainly Muslims who cannot be reached because of the “communication barrier”. The head of the RKI calls a spade a spade and the BILD prints it. Respect.

Moreover, Wieler speaks of parallel societies in the middle of our country, four million people who cannot be reached. The RKI boss literally says: “And that’s crap.” Although this group makes up only 4.8% of the population, it represents 50% of the patients in intensive care units.

MD Thomas Voshaar informed Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn about the facts. Voshaar to BILD:

“Everyone I’ve spoken to, up to and including Mr. Spahn, has said “Oh God, oh God, oh God.”

However, as the BILD has learned from a government spokesman, Spahn did not find it necessary to pass on this information to the Chancellor’s Office. Consequently, it was never an issue at the chancellor’s Corona summits with the governors of the states. “O God, oh God, oh God”, is also the answer concerning the politics during this pressing crisis.

Lockdown due to “patients with communication barriers”?

Keep in mind that the compulsory Corona measures are imposed ostensibly to avoid overcrowding in intensive care units. So now we learn by mistake that migrants predominantly occupy intensive care units due to COVID, because the government is unable to make it clear to them how they should behave. It is euphemistically called a “communication barrier”.

A better expression would be: “Disastrously failed integration policy,” the results of which — as we now know — significantly lead to the fact that we have been locked up, businesses have gone bankrupt and our senior citizens have died of loneliness in nursing homes.

“Patients With Communication Barrier”

50 percent of Corona ICU patients nationwide have immigrant backgrounds?

by Alexander Wallasch
March 3, 2021

It took almost three weeks for this highly explosive news from a online conference between the head of the Robert Koch Institute and chief physicians to leak out to the public: More than 90 percent of Corona intensive care patients were said to have immigrant backgrounds at one pulmonary hospital, and well over 50 percent nationwide. Strictly speaking, this news took much longer than just three weeks to become public, because the occupancy of the intensive care units, especially the Corona intensive care beds, is known to the hospitals, and they most likely reported it to politicians months ago after the first patients were admitted. From then on, those involved remained silent concerning the high proportion of patient with a migration history.

The round of talks with RKI chief Lothar Wieler included a taboo topic, as THE BILD reported for the first time yesterday evening after 11 pm. This conversation is said to have emerged from an online conference with chief physicians. The extremely high proportion “is perceived as taboo in the federal government.” The question of “why” was also reportedly discussed in the high-level medical roundtable. Apparently, the Federal government is afraid of creating a racism debate. As a result, they also refrained from an intensive information campaign for migrants to stop it. What followed was devastating economic and health consequences for migrants and the population as a whole.

The head of the lung clinic in Moers, Thomas Voshaar, is quoted authoritatively in the initial reporting. A survey he conducted determined that: “This shows very clearly that there is a group that obviously has not been reached at all with regard to Corona warnings. These people are people with a migration background.”

The German chancellor repeatedly addresses an increasingly desperate population with her threatening, pleading, and alarmist warnings in German. So an entire country is being held hostage by a particular group — or, more accurately, by Merkel’s taboo? Voshaar says it plainly and without misinterpretation: “According to my survey, more than 90 percent of the intubated, seriously ill patients always had a migration background. We agreed internally that we would refer to such sick people as ‘patients with communication barriers.’ We don’t seem to be reaching them.”

“Patients with a communication barrier” — could it actually be any more inaccurate, even cynical? However, that isn’t the doctor’s fault. His initiative will be understood as courageous and the direction his career takes from here should be followed in the coming weeks. Apparently these surveys were done in November and December of 2020; however, one must assume that both the RKI chief and the policy makers knew far earlier.

Bild quotes Wieler:

“I heard the same thing. But it’s a taboo. I have tried to approach certain people. We have to approach this religious group through imams. The whole thing has huge implications for Berlin. It’s a real problem. […] There are parallel societies in the midst of our country. If you want to do something there, it will only work with tough social work in the mosques. And we can’t get into that. And that’s crap. This group consists of four million people in Germany. That corresponds to 4.8 percent of the population. However, in the intensive care units, there are well over 50 percent are from this group.”

According to Voshaar, however, Health Minister Jens Spahn is said to have acted surprised and reacted with horror: “Oh God, oh God, oh God,” he is said to have exclaimed. Equally unbelievable, a government spokesman now claims that the chancellor knew nothing of all this. “In response to a question from The Bild, a government spokesman explained that Spahn had not passed on the warnings to the chancellor’s office. At the chancellor’s Corona summits with the heads of the federal states, the findings of the medical experts were never a topic.” Is the government already tinkering here with a legend of Merkel’s ignorance to protect the Union (CDU) from this trouble in the upcoming 2021 federal election campaign?

In November, the health minister told the Frankfurter Allgemeine (FAZ) that the spread of the virus had nothing to do with religion, but that “cultural customs, on the other hand, can facilitate the spread of the virus.” Most certainly at that time he already knew what the numbers were showing.

Does this indicate that a certain minority was largely responsible for the spread of Corona in Germany? It seems that this is what is being admitted, and there’s nothing at all objectionable about that. However, that is only the case if the exceedingly threatening scenario was being taken seriously by the German government and the Robert Koch Institute. If the opposite is true (it is not being taken seriously) and is just alarmism, it is a fundamental right of the population which is being 100% bullied to be informed regardless of their origin.

The FDP politician Alexander Lambsdorff responded on Feb. 11 to a tweet from Erika Steinbach, who had apparently heard about the many Corona intensive care patients with an immigrant background:

There are disgusting tweets, and then even more disgusting tweets and then there are tweets from Erika #Steinbach.

She is part of a rotten marinade of lies that wants to poison our society. #Corona #noAfD

Erik Steinbach wrote:

I have heard credibly from various sources that 50% of Covid patients in hospitals are from the Arab countries. This has not been an issue for the media so far. Would be a delightful task for our so diligent network journalists. But they won’t do it.

The question for Lambsdorff now is: Will he keep his poisonous tweet up? And does it also apply to THE BILD newspaper?

Below are excerpts from the Bild article discussed above. The original German is behind a paywall:

Director of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) on the high proportion of intensive care patients with a migration background: “It’s a TABOO”

by N. Harbusch

Berlin — The German government has apparently failed to make its Corona strategy understandable to those who speak little or no German.

In intensive care units in Germany, a very large proportion of severe Corona cases appear to be patients with a migration background. This fact is apparently perceived as taboo in the Federal government, according to a conversation between RKI head Prof. Lothar Wieler (60) and chief physicians.

It has emerged that one of the concerns of the medical experts is that there are high infection rates due to language barriers.

Their second concern: No one in the federal government wanted to take up the issue for fear of creating racism debate.

Accordingly, in a online conference held by Wieler with chief physicians on Feb. 14, Thomas Vashaar, head of the Moers Lung Clinic (photo), explained that they had obtained figures from intensive care units across Germany through a telephone survey of fellow chief physicians:

“This shows very clearly that there is a group that obviously has not been reach at all with regard to Corona warnings. These people are people with a migration background.”

[…]

Wieler: “There are parallel societies in the midst of our country. If you want to do something there, it will only work with tough social work in the mosques. And we can’t get in there. And that’s crap. This group consists of four million people in Germany. That corresponds to 4.8 percent of the population. However, in the intensive care units, there are well over 50 percent from this group.”

[…]

When asked by THE BILD, a government spokesman said Spahn had not passed on the warnings to the Chancellor’s Office. At the Chancellor’s Corona summits with the Governors of the Federal states, the findings of the medical experts were never an issue.

In November, Spahn stated in the FAZ: “There is no connection between the spread of the virus and religious affiliation. Cultural customs, on the other hand, can facilitate the spread of the virus.”

When asked by THE BILD, Prof. Wieler explained, “It was not a public expert discussion, but rather a personal, informal exchange.” The matter is discussed came to “no conclusive findings, only considerations.”

And what do integration politicians say?

NRW State Secretary for Migration Serap Güter (40, CDU) to BILD: “People with a migration history are not more slow-witted, but there are sometimes perhaps language barriers. Today, it is clear to everyone the dangers of Corona, as well as the Corona rules, regardless of origin. Whoever still has not understood, will only be helped through regulatory measures such as fines and not immigrant-specific offers of help.”

  1. This is my experience from Sweden, that the migrants love to visit hospitals, sit and chat in the waiting rooms… I always found it strange, as I avoid hospitals at all costs, but I guess they like to think they are being “served”.

    • Uncovered piles of [ordure] tend to attract flies. No surprise there are plenty buzzing around Swedish waiting rooms, especially since the stench is for free.

    • Visit hospitals hanging around them? Gives them a chance to rape someone who in unconscious recovering from surgery in there room. A chance to steal unguarded drugs ,or someone,s person valuables .A chance to bring a new disease into contact with as many non-believers as possible .

  2. If the pandemic was real, two hazards would cancel each other out naturally here. If not, this would drag the evidence out into the daylight for everyone to see. Guess which outcome officials are more afraid of.

  3. No real surprise there, I just need to look at our Hospitals in South Africa, to see which demographic is using the Medical Profession profusely.
    Especially when it’s for Free.

  4. Good job MissPiggy.

    The sad thing about this, is that German society, from the chancellor downward, knew that it was crucially important to involve every last resident in stopping the virus if that was to happen. Frau Merkel said as much a year ago, when, having safely confirmed the prevailing wind, by then a persistent E to S gale, she could finally stress the blinding, inevitable obvious.

    Our local health department did its bit and quickly mailed to every address, an illustrated flyer of what people needed to do: in German, English, Turkish, Russian, French, Romanian, Bulgarian, Spanish, Arabic and Farsi. Since then, I am not aware of any effort by anyone to engage people who do not know German or English.

    The handling of the pandemic has been a series of interesting, if sometimes appalling experiments.

  5. This all seems to be part of the plan, doesn’t it? Anybody with half a brain knows by now that the Scamdemic has been a giant, worldwide plot to take down President Trump, his 100 million voters and freedom loving people the world over.

    Yes, Covid 19 exists. Yes it is a very serious flu. But was it really necessary to shut down the world for a year, destroy most of Western civilization, our children, our businesses, our freedoms and liberties?

    The same thing that’s happening in Germany with the Unspeakables is happening here in the US with the Covid infested illegals who are pouring into our borderless country at a rate never seen before.

    Funny how the Hologram Biden Fake Administration wants to keep Americans locked down and masked with Jew Badges forever, but all bets are off when it comes to diseased immigrants who are welcomed in with open arms, given a cell phone and money, then set free to infect innocent Americans.

    I have to admit, even President Trump never saw it coming. As brilliant as he is, even he had no idea what they had planned for us, how they were going to use the Chi Com Corona to take down our Republic.

    Look at American today- there is a barbed wire wall and thousands of armed guards surrounding our nation’s Capitol. Meanwhile, there are no walls or barriers at our southern border and every criminal, thug and miscreant are allowed free entry to further sicken and destroy our once great Country.

    The big difference between the USA and Germany- we have many millions of heavily armed citizens who are not going to go easily into that dark night. When a person has nothing else to lose, when everything has been taken, they become very dangerous indeed.

  6. This smells of a whole new level of PROPAGANDA. If the German mainstream media tells some truth it must have a reason to that.

    I am writing from Hungary, and I do not have first hand experience about the German reality, so I invite anyone, especially Germans who have more field information, to challange my below analysis.

    I think that this Bild article is a many-layered Commie propaganda, that has two target groups: 1) Critical, informed Germans targeted by the Corona hoax 2) The general public targeted on the topic of Islam.

    I suppose that those groups in Germany who are critical on Islam or at least “no-go zones”, overlap with those who are the most aware of the Corona Hoax. So the TPTB are handling them by half truthes that look like revelations and taboo-breaking — but they are far from it.

    The strategy behind the seemingly unusual “leak” in the Bild may be to target these well informed people and brainwash them into some axioms of the New Normal. This “leak” is a false taboo-breaking in the sense that they use it as a vehicle for spreading the Corona Hoax and Islamic propaganda mixed up.

    Let us notice that these two corner stones of the New Reality enforced in these German pieces of “news” are:

    AXIOM I.) Covid measures are right and appropriate. Lockdowns and other New Rules work.
    ______
    They make these implicite statements through sentences like this:

    ““This shows very clearly that there is a group that obviously has not been reach [sic] at all with regard to Corona warnings. These people are people with a migration background.”

    — See the trick? The sentence implies that those (the Germans) who have been reached by the “Corona warning” are better off because they do not end up in intensive care units. The translation of the message is: “Germans shut up, Corona measures work. Whoever does not follow our warnings ends up in intensive care. There should be a stronger outreach program in place to inform these poor chaps who cannot speak our language. You Nazi psychopaths forgot to inform the newcomers so they now suffer or even die. And you guilty ones are unharmed because we saved you with our measures. The refugees deserve better from you.”

    So the problem has been established. And here you get the solution: the mosques i.e Islam:

    AXIOM II.) There are some problems with Islam, but these are not systemic ones. We are responsible for solving these problems and we are guilty for not solving them. Islam is benign so an outreach to mosques and imams will do the job:
    _______
    ““There are parallel societies in the midst of our country. If you want to do something there, it will only work with tough social work in the mosques. And we can’t get in there. And that’s crap. This group consists of four million people in Germany. That corresponds to 4.8 percent of the population. However, in the intensive care units, there are well over 50 percent from this group.” – writes the the German propaganda media.

    The main thing here is to get the Germans accustomed to the fact that they cannot influence Islam from outside, therefore it will be the imams who will do this job for them. No matter what the intention of Wieler might have been with the above statement, the Bild cannot be given the benefit of the doubt. They are a propaganda machine so it would be naive to believe that this has suddenly changed for the better and they want to genuinly inform people about the truth of Jihad.

    It is more likely that some bad things cannot be completely denied any more about Islam and therefore TPTB use partial admissions to further their agendas.

    The partial admission here is that there really are “parallel societies”. Now this has been obvious anyway, and so it is the lowest possible level of truth because it misses the real reason: Islam does not want to integrate, it wants to conquer. But the Germans have to keep on pretending that Islam is benign.

    So this “admission” appeals to those who are well aware of this truth of malevolent “parellel societies” but who do not know that Islamic scriptures mandate this malevolence in the form of Jihad. So they use this fake admission as a vehicle to feed the Germans with the next level of propaganda: outreach to Islam and the autonomy of Islam within Germany. The two are interconnected, because “outreach” is in reality the futile effort of the inferior Infidel to please superior Muslims until the are strong enough to wage violent Jihad against the host society.

    You see, if you “can’t get in there” i.e into the mosques to do “tough social work” there, you will need some intermediators — and these are the imams:

    “Prof. Wieler was already aware of this problem beforehand. He commented: “I heard the same thing, but it’s a taboo. I have tried to approach certain people. We have to reach out to this religious group through imams. The whole thing has huge implications for Berlin. It’s a real problem.””

    — Wow, is it really? The solution is the outreach through imams, beacuse “it’s a real problem”?! So we see here some fake taboo-breaking:

    This had been the plan with importing Islam in the first place: to cause Islamic problems that only Islam can solve. And the Communist can now assist their new masters in “solving the problems”. This is what is happening again: problem –> reaction –> solution.

    Problem: Islamic Jihad conquers territories –> Reaction: aboriginal Germans get angry –> Solution: More power to Islam

    This is the gradual process of Islamic takeover, in which the next level of “solution” to the problem of Islamization is always more Islamization. Imams play a crucial role in it: they can instigate an Intifada or they can call it back. So they function as a ‘swith’ on Jihad — and this comes handy for the Commies because they can claim that it is only them who can negotiate with and control these ‘switches’, while the society sinks in the Islamic hostage situation deeper and deeper.

    Otherwise the German mainstream media would not have admitted that the whole German society (the Wester civilisation indeed) has been deliberately destroyed by Islam. They admit it now for a reason: to increase the stake and make the trouble bigger to get even more power.

    In the meantime, has anyone checked that this claim of “50% migrants in intensive care” is true in the midst of the Great Corona Hoax?…

    Or are we witnessing some genuine outbreak of the truth here mixed with propaganda? Germans who know better should tell.

  7. Prophetic, just prophetic. The need here is obvious, first, every person with a language barrier in the ICU must be put on a ventilator, at once. Second, do not under any circumstances administer HCQ to the patients. Thirdly, all medical personal must consult with NY Governor Cuomo as to the best procedures in treatment, for all language barrier china virus victims. Remember allah wills it.

  8. It seems to me that immigrants (assuming they pass the criteria to be allowed to remain) should not be allowed to vote until they are citizens, and they should not be granted citizenship without passing a test to prove they understand the language.

    However, the suggestion that in the current situation, imams should be brought in to translate for them, which is somewhat skated over here, is a reasonable and practical one, if only to reduce the likelihood of the virus spreading among the general population. I daresay the Germans should not have got themselves into this fix in the first place, but they are where they are.

  9. Sit back with a cocktail, smile and watch as this completely falls apart. Remember kids, arm up, the fun and games are about to begin.

  10. The gutless German government refuses to deport Islam, so, the covid has assisted getting rid the invading Moslems as the government runs them through emergency rooms and thence to their valhalla. Expensive solution to the invasion and ultimate fall of Germany to Islam.

  11. Most of our corona virus outbreaks were in the Muslims suburbs because they refuse to follow rules. They can’t follow ANY rules and they don’t care because rules only apply to non Muslims same as the all other laws. They break all rules and laugh.
