Moscow Hospitals to Deny Treatment to the Unvaccinated

So will they be exempt from taxes that pay for them?

Editor’s note: Supposedly being done “solely to protect patients.” Supposedly the hospitals are so overrun with COVID viruses that it’s better for the unvaccinated not to enter them. This is clearly nonsense however since those who are medically exempt from having to get a vaccine will still be treated. In reality, those too weak to be vaccinated would be the first to be turned back. Also, it doesn’t make any sense to introduce a blanket ban for every single hospital in a region of 12 million regardless of the individual situation in each.

Moscow hospitals will no longer provide routine treatment to unvaccinated patients, health authorities announced Friday. [Which is every treatment that is “non-urgent” aka not for the ER. There is also an exception for scheduled treatment for cancer and blood disease patients only.]

The announcement is the latest unprecedented measure taken as the Russian capital, a metropolis of 12 million people, saw a record number of new Covid-19 infections Friday. Officials link the drastic surge over the past week to new, more-contagious mutations of the virus, particularly the Delta variant first detected in India.

Muscovites will have to present proof of their vaccination prior to treatment, the Moscow health department said.

Unvaccinated patients who require emergency care or treatment for cancer or blood diseases will still be able to seek treatment, as well as those with medical exemptions from vaccination.

The Moscow health department pointed to the rising risk of infection spreading in the city’s roughly 50 hospitals as the impetus for the new restrictions.

“Every day, patients are transferred from Moscow’s clinics to its Covid hospitals. If a week ago this number was 130 cases per day, then yesterday it was already almost 200,” the department.

Moscow has started to rapidly reprofile hospitals to increase the number of beds available to coronavirus patients. The number of designated Covid-19 beds is now almost back at levels seen during the first peak of hospitalizations last spring.

Also on Friday, city officials announced additional restrictions and incentives to drive up flagging vaccination rates. The city ordered 60% of service sector workers to get vaccinated earlier in the week.

Vaccination requirements may also apply to this September’s State Duma elections, Anna Popova, the head of Russia’s health watchdog, said Friday. 

“Our forecast for September is as follows: We are ready together with you to ensure safe voting so that the expression of the will of our citizens can be fully realized,” Popova said at a meeting of Russia’s Central Election Commission.

“We probably would not recommend such a form [at-home voting] in this situation,” she added.

    Holy fuck. What is going on with the world.

    The Delta variant… roflmao. What a joke.

    All this after the Biden meeting….. Russia that’s been quiet throughout most of this is suddenly jumps into the fray.

    And their still using the PCR that they know cannot determine infection. Without the fake PCR infection tests there would be no virus and no pandemic.

    I guess they somehow brought Moscow back into their bosom. hmmm,
    Right on time for elections.

    I didn’t think Putin and Muscovite’s were that easy… Gotta recalibrate again!

    Edit: Paul Craig Roberts is right,,, Russia will do ‘whatever it takes’ to get in bed with the West.

    As shown in this article, the original SARS-CoV-2 virus has taken a normal approach to evolution and has created far more variants than our governments and media would have us think:

    In order to understand whether a viral mutation is dangerous to humans, animal or human studies are necessary and these studies take time.  Given the hasty response to the current variants suggests that governments are using the appearance of new strains of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to bolster their fear porn-based agendas when, in fact, viruses have mutated for millennia.

    For starters, I would take anything the Moscow Times says with a grain of salt; it’s a western newspaper with an American editor, and caters to a western worldview in which anything bad that happens to Russia is good for everyone else. The current majority shareholder, with 51%, is a Russian but he is an internationalist and a close friend of the Dutch founder. The paper frequently makes ‘mistakes’, and if you speak Russian I would recommend you read the original text.

    Second – huh? The Russian hospitals are overrun with COVID sufferers who are already vaccinated? That what you’re telling me? I suppose the subtext there is that they took that crappy Sputnik vaccine and it doesn’t protect you from coronavirus at all. But in fact it has been at least as thoroughly tested as all the others and its efficacy rated above 90% for stimulating the production of antibodies.Also, it is not an mRNA vaccine.

    There is currently a battle raging to impose such a crippling level of restrictions that everyone who is not vaccinated will have to capitulate or be outcasts. They haven’t given up, but it’s not won and as long as states like Texas and Florida exist, it’s still possible to beat them at their lunatic game. And it does not help their position at all to continue handling the vaccinated as if they remain toxic reservoirs of disease.

    I would warn everyone also that it’s not enough to just get vaccinated (which I am not encouraging, and I am in fact opposed to it). I heard on the radio today, in concert announcements, that not everywhere in the United States will accept vaccination with Astra-Zeneca as valid because the USA does not recognize it as an effective COVID vaccine. That’s because it isn’t American, of course, and they want to keep a captive market for their own doses.

    It’s all just a huge scam, but those who are opposed to vaccination must continue to hold firm against it and not be tricked into it with hysteria or persuasion. I feel there will be a reckoning down the road and those who caved in will be sorry.

    Commentators yuri, speciem libertatis and Mark claim that this story is a lie because it comes from the Moscow times. Ignore them “shooting the messenger”. Tass and other Russian media confirm the story to be 100 per cent true, viz “MOSCOW, June 18. /TASS/. Compulsory vaccination of some categories of citizens against coronavirus, similar to Moscow measures, will be introduced in other regions if necessary. Now it is being introduced in Tula, Head of the Russian Consumer Rights Protection (Rospotrebnadzor) Anna Popova said Friday.”

    I guess Putin isn’t a truly independent leader. He must know that there is no SARS COV2 virus, therefore someone very powerful must have given him an ultimatum to let Russians be euthanised just like Americans and Brits.

      dimwit amerikan
      Tass—only specified occupations, only in Moscow, none outside Moscow–u despicable liar: typical amerikan…Tula is an autonomous city mainly populated by Tatars…while your poison vaccines are banned in many nations, sputnik qualified in 60 nations–not one allergic reaction or death attributed

  12. Oilman says

    The journalist is so full of it! Only “Healthy Moscow” which is mainly in parcs will only be doing vaccines. That’s far from being all hospitals! Furthermore, it comes from “The Moscow Times” which is an anti-Putin organization and was declared a “foreign agent” by the Kremlin.

    Stop being sheep!
