Medical Apartheid Comes From Federal Government

It isn’t just in liberal Minnesota and New York that you can be denied medical care for being a Caucasian. Medical apartheid has taken root even in relatively sane Utah:

Race triage did not originate in the states. It has trickled down from the federal Debt Star, complements of a regime that has ensconced critical race theory as our state religion, via the faceless, unelected bureaucracy that micromanages our lives from afar.

From the Washington Free Beacon:

The FDA “fact sheet” for Sotrovimab, the only monoclonal antibody effective against the Omicron variant, states that “race or ethnicity” can “place individual patients at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19.” The fact sheet for Paxlovid, Pfizer’s new antiviral pill, uses the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s definition of “high risk,” which states that “systemic health and social inequities” have put minorities “at increased risk of getting sick and dying from COVID-19.”

Here’s how federal guidance has been implemented:

In New York, racial minorities are automatically eligible for scarce COVID-19 therapeutics, regardless of age or underlying conditions. In Utah, “Latinx ethnicity” counts for more points than “congestive heart failure” in a patient’s “COVID-19 risk score”—the state’s framework for allocating monoclonal antibodies. And in Minnesota, health officials have devised their own “ethical framework” that prioritizes black 18-year-olds over white 64-year-olds—even though the latter are at much higher risk of severe disease.

According to liberal doctrine, identity groups likely to vote for Democrats are in some ill-defined sense “oppressed.” Therefore, they go to the front of the line. Sorry if that means you have to die.

Confirming that the triage is based on cultural Marxism rather than health concerns, the Covid death rate for men is 1.6 times that for women. They don’t get priority for lifesaving meds though, because men are not blessed as oppressed by our moonbat overlords.
