Candace Owens: the CT governor lied about an infant dying from the coronavirus


CONNECTICUT– If you don’t know who Candace Owens is, stop what you’re doing right now and go look her up. Follow her on every social media platform and then say a silent “thank you” to me for introducing you to her.

Candace Owens is a conservative commentator who is not afraid to say what’s on her mind. Most recently, she has investigated and called out those who have falsely claimed that COVID-19 has claimed the life of children. More specifically, that it claimed the life of a 17-year-old boy in California and an infant in Connecticut.

The infant involved seems to have passed away from a “terrible accident at home,” where it was accidentally suffocated by a caretaker. The baby was tested for COVID-19 after already pronounced dead, and when the test was positive, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont took that and ran with it.

Owens tweeted a video with the caption:

“If you can be arrested for yelling fire in a theatre, @GovNedLamont should be in prison for this,” “BREAKING NEWS! Connecticut @GovNedLamont  LIED about the infant death from #coronavirus”

In the video, Owens said:

“The death of the infant in Connecticut had nothing to do with COVID-19. I know exactly how the infant died. I know this because people that were involved were mortified and angry, and they were so happy that I spoke out and called out this double-speak. These people reached out to me, not the mother and the father.

I think Governor Ned Lamont should have to step down.”

Owens continued:

“Postmortem, after this infant had already succumbed, they tested this infant for COVID-19. God knows why. Because as I have been trying to shout to you all, it does not matter how you die, they will test you for COVID-19.

Then, they will use the exact same language that Ned Lamont used: ‘a death linked to COVID-19,’ knowing fully well that the manner in which that infant died had nothing to do with [virus].”

Lamont declared last Wednesday that the seven-week old baby was, as he described, “the first pediatric fatality in Connecticut linked to COVID-19.”

Lamont first claimed via Twitter:

 “A 6-week-old newborn from the Hartford area was brought unresponsive to a hospital late last week and could not be revived. Testing confirmed last night that the newborn was COVID-19 positive. This is absolutely heartbreaking.

We believe this is one of the youngest lives lost anywhere due to complications relating to COVID-19. This is a virus that attacks our most fragile without mercy.

This also stresses the importance of staying home and limiting exposure to other people. Your life and the lives of others could literally depend on it. Our prayers are with the family at this difficult time.”

However, in an email to the CT Post after his comments, the state’s chief medical examiner, Dr. James Gill, said:

“The infant did test positive for the COVID-19 virus and an autopsy was done at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. At the current time, we have not issued a final cause of death.

There are numerous tests that we must do on infant deaths before issuing a final cause of death. We cannot discuss the specifics of an investigation.”

After Owens posted her video, the governor’s office recanted the earlier claims and said that the exact cause of death for the infant was not yet known, and that the office didn’t know whether there was underlying medical conditions.

In another series of tweets, Owens said:

“‘Linked to Covid-19’. What the hell does that mean? Did the newborn have pre-existing conditions— yes or no? Did the infant die OF coronavirus yes or no? STOP with this political doublespeak. Scaring mothers of newborns with partial information is SCUM BEHAVIOR.

‘Complicated by’ ‘Linked to’, has anybody else realized that ALL of these death announcements provide partial information? If you are going to start using the death of infants to scare people into doing what you want, you better start providing FULL information, [Gov. Lamont].”

Owens claims that Lamont knew all of the information before making his announcement and lists that as the reason he should step down, and even possibly face legal repercussions.

That poor family had obviously been through a lot as it was, but to toss in their governor playing politics and fear mongering with their baby’s corpse as a dangling carrot is disgusting.

The governor’s office had yet to respond to Owens’ claims at the time of this writing.

Owens had also posted on social media about the 17-year old boy out of California that was said to have died due to COVID-19.

The teen from Lancaster was said to be the youngest COVID-19 “related” death, but health officials have since said the case is “complex,” needing further evaluation.

Of course, after announcing COVID-19 as the cause of death and then packpedalling, they are suddenly so concerned about the patient and family’s privacy.

Of this, Owens said:

“After Los Angeles got caught LYING about the recent “first teen death” from #coronavirus they issued this statement— “the case is complex and there may be an alternate explanation for this fatality. Patient privacy prevents our offering further details at this time”

Isn’t it INCREDIBLE how the governments are allowed to tell us when the patient dies from #coronavirus, but privacy laws prevent them from telling us anything otherwise?

WAKE UP, AMERICA. We are being duped!”

Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris announced on Youtube after the teen was declared to have died from COVID-19 that the teen attempted to go to urgent care but was denied because he didn’t have insurance.

If that sounds ridiculous and unlikely…well, keep reading.

Parris, who had fueled the social media anger by his comments against the urgent care, explained that there had been a “misunderstanding.”

Apparently, the teen’s father spoke “English as a second language,” and the family did actually have health insurance.

Further, what actually happened was this, according to a phone interview with Parris on March 30:

“The boy’s brother called Kaiser and told them the symptoms. They said don’t bring him here, take him to the [Antelope Valley] hospital, which was what they should have done.

Then he coded on the way there. They worked on him for six hours in the emergency room and they just couldn’t get him back.”

Time Magazine, however, justified the outright lie told by the Mayor before he had any information by saying:

“But one reason the story exploded on social media is that it felt emblematic of a broader, societal failing because it easily could have been true.”

Oh ok.

I guess someone needs to have the same talk with them that I have with my 13-year old about what a lie actually is.

The Los Angeles County Public Health Department said days after the teen’s death:

“Though early tests indicated a positive result for COVID-19, the case is complex and there may be an alternate explanation for this fatality. Patient privacy prevents our offering further details at this time.”

Meanwhile, LA County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said that the teen is no longer counted in the total deaths from COVID-19.

Apparently, the Mayor is now super concerned about public trust. Not backpedaling on his own fear mongering, Parris said:

“Our biggest concern is why the secrecy. There can be concurrent causes. But that doesn’t mean you strike somebody off the list. And what they have never said to us is that the [positive COVID-19] test was wrong.”

These are just two of the exposed lies regarding COVID-19 cases. I wonder how many more there are out there.
