“Many on Ventilators” – Justice Sotomayor Falsely Claims Over 100,000 Children in Serious Condition Because of Covid
The US Supreme Court on Friday is considering a halt on Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates that affect more than 80 million Americans.
The highest court of the land began hearing oral arguments on two of Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates.
The Biden regime mandated all companies with 100+ employees to either test workers or prove they are vaccinated through a loophole issued by OSHA.
Biden also mandated healthcare workers at places receiving Medicaid and Medicare funding to prove they are vaccinated.
During oral arguments on Friday, Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor falsely claimed that over 100,000 children are in serious condition because of Covid.
“Many are on ventilators,” Sotomayor said.

This is a lie.
The CDC on Friday said 4 in 100,000 children admitted to hospitals are infected with Covid.
The children are in the hospital with Covid, not necessarily because of Covid and they are less likely to need ventilators:
More than four in 100,000 children aged 4 years or younger admitted to hospitals were infected with the coronavirus as of Jan. 1 — double the rate reported a month ago, and about three times the rate this time last year.
Children infected with the variant are still at much less risk of becoming severely ill than adults, and even young children seem less likely to need ventilators than those admitted during previous surges, experts said.
“We have not yet seen a signal that there is any increased severity in this age demographic,” Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the C.D.C.’s director, told reporters at a news briefing on Friday. She noted that similar worries about the Delta variant had proved to be unfounded.
“The Supreme Court should quickly issue a public correction to this incorrect information.” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said.
