Healthcare Officials Told Not to Resuscitate Elderly Covid Patients, Whistleblower Testifies

Healthcare officials were told not to resuscitate elderly Covid patients during the pandemic, according to a shocking whistleblower testimony.

Paramedics and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) were told not to “try too hard” to resuscitate over 70 years old.

However, the whistleblower says health officials were planning to lower the age to 50 in order to meet the “demand.”

The order appears to have been an effort to boost the number of deaths attributed to COVID-19 during the pandemic.

At the time, health officials and corporate media outlets promoted reports of alleged mass deaths from the virus, claiming that hospitals were “overwhelmed.”

However, these claims were never supported with real evidence and hospital workers have since claimed that they were no busier than normal.

During the ongoing Scottish COVID-19 Inquiry, several whistleblowers have testified that Covid death figures were faked.

Some have even testified that hospitals were killing patients and listing their deaths as being caused by Covid in order to boost the numbers.

Medical commentator John Campbell, Ph.D., analyzed the testimony of a Scottish paramedic who provided a whistleblowing testimony during the inquiry.

A clinical adviser paramedic, Robert Pollock, told the Scottish COVID-19 Inquiry that healthcare workers received a letter stating they “would be given full support” if they allowed Covid patients over the age of 70 to die without resuscitating them.

Scottish health officials in March 2020 told paramedics they would be fully supported if they did not “try too hard” to resuscitate patients over the age of 70, Pollock testified.

After analyzing the testimony, Dr. Campbell said:

“We’re talking about people not being resuscitated after a particular age, which of course is patent ageism.”

Pollock, who worked as a frontline paramedic during the pandemic, delivered the testimony and provided a sworn affidavit to the Scottish COVID-19 Inquiry.

The inquiry heard testimony from government officials and ordinary citizens over a span of more than 50 days.

It investigated failures in Scotland’s pandemic response — including how hospitals administered dangerous end-of-life protocols, including pressuring patients to sign DNR (do not resuscitate) orders.

According to Pollock’s signed written statement:

“Scottish Ambulance Service employees received a letter by email on Thursday 26 March 2020 from the Health and Care Professions Council which stipulated to every registrant that they realised there would be difficult decisions to be made by healthcare professionals, but they would be given full support to make decisions [without] normal protocols.”

According to Pollock, this practice is known as the “toe tagging” of patients based on their age.

He said they were ordered to “‘not try too hard to resuscitate them’ over a certain age.”

Pollock expanded on these claims in his testimony before the inquiry.

“My recollection is absolutely clear,” he said.

“There was discussions around the age grouping for toe-tagging, for want of a better word.

‘People … over a certain age now, your normal attempts at resuscitation would be minimized.”

According to Pollock, these instructions came even though “there is no age limit in Scotland for resuscitation of a patient.”

“This was very frightening for workers who have family members in that age group and it caused a lot of concern and anxiety for people who were used to doing their best to preserve life,” Pollock wrote.

“The process of resuscitation has evolved, and we have a high success rate.

“This did not go down well with members.”

“Staff morale was severely affected, as they were trained to preserve life, they were paid lifesavers but at the time, they were told to do the complete opposite,” he added.

“This terrified staff that they might have to do this against their normal training and their normal desire to help.

“This was not a process that anyone welcomed.”

Pollock said there were “rumors” within the Scottish Ambulance Services “that the government had a plan to reduce the age group to those over 50s if Covid levels reached their expected peak and the plan for over 70s did not result in a significant enough drop in medical demand.”

Pollock said such a plan had been “absolutely in discussion.”

Campbell, who holds a Ph.D. in nursing, analyzed Pollock’s statement and testimony.

“This was not a process that anyone welcomed,” Campbell repeated.

“The people that sent out these emails, what was their thinking?

“What was their thinking based on, and what was the rationale for what they were doing?”

In his testimony, Pollock also implied that these orders had been issued to the Scottish Ambulance Service from above.

“They weren’t decision-making on their own,” he said.

“It sounds to me like some decisions were made far too quickly, almost,” Campbell said.

He added that Pollock’s testimony raises questions that require further investigation.

“We need more information,” Campbell said.

“We need to do qualitative research on this and then get quantitative figures out of it because Mr. Pollock said he didn’t know how many people that’s affected.

“But that information could well be derived.”

Campbell suggested similar policies were likely implemented in other countries.

However, the lack of a similar public inquiry in most countries means the information might never be revealed publicly.

“This is an excellent inquiry and the counselors on it, the lawyers on it, are asking sensitive questions and getting information from ordinary people,” Campbell said.

“People’s ordinary experience, not high-powered politicians, just people that experienced things and often suffered during the pandemic time.”

“It’s a pity other countries aren’t doing the same,” he added.
