Axne's Spreads Misinformation on COVID
Yesterday while on WHO "The Insiders," Cindy Axne joined in on Democrats' hysteria on COVID-19.
While spreading misinformation, Axne said, "We have hospitals right here in Des Moines and they have no more beds left... you have a heart attack, guess what? You’re out of luck. Your child gets in a car accident…unfortunately, they’re out of luck.”
This claim is factually untrue. Here is WHO 13 News' statement on the claim: "WHO 13 News has been unable to find any hospital in Iowa that can no longer accept patients in emergency situations, like heart attacks or children in car crashes as Axne mentioned."
"Axne's latest comments are dangerous and harmful to Iowans. She knew she was spreading misinformation to try to scare constituents about COVID," said Republican Party of Iowa Communications Director Kollin Crompton. "In reality, Axne's comments will keep Iowans who may be having a medical emergency, away from the hospital, instead of getting the life-saving treatment they need. Axne needs to come out and say she was wrong and stop putting a political agenda that pushes fear and misinformation ahead of Iowans' best interests."
