Sec. of HHS also has authority (& the collective we should check) under a public health emergency (Section 1135 of the SSA for you home gamers) to waive #EMTALA sanctions for redirection of an individual to another location for the MSE per a state emergency preparedness plan...
2/ waiver of #EMTALA sanctions is effective only if actions under the waiver (if granted by @SecAzar) do not discriminate on the Pts source or ability to pay; #EMTALA waiver of sanctions for emergencies involving a pandemic (yes check we’re there) last until termination of ...

BEFORE READING THIS THREAD, do you think this statement is TRUE or FALSE?

Despite being a documented #epidemic for decades, @HHSGov's #CenterForDiseaseControl(@CDCgov) intentionally obstructs its collecting #statistics on what causes at least 10% of deaths NEEDLESSLY every year.

HINT: You already know of these systemic #DataScams due to #PublicCorruption & #RegulatoryCapture:

🤥#UScensus is maliciously biased

Thread coming soon about #CauseOfDeath #DataFraud

#AmericanSwamp #MedicalControlFraud

ANOTHER HINT: My inability to escape intrahospital, interhospital & health/disability insurers’ #ConspiracyAgainstRights using #MedicalControlFrauds exposes motive of the right answer.
