Doctors Gave Down Syndrome Covid Patients ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ Orders without Consent – EVOL

Alarming new evidence has emerged that doctors secretly issued “Do Not Resuscitate” (DNR) orders for Down syndrome patients who tested positive for COVID-19.

The orders with issued with the consent or knowledge of the patients or their families.

The explosive findings were revealed in a press release from Dr. Stephanie Santoro, assistant professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School.

According to Santoro’s findings, Down syndrome patients and other disabled people were issued with DNR orders in an apparent effort to boost the numbers of “Covid deaths.”

Previous investigations have found that people with disabilities were at least twice as likely to die during the pandemic if they tested positive for Covid in a hospital.

However, Santoro’s new study reveals that patients with Down syndrome, specifically, were even more likely to die.

Down syndrome patients were increasingly given DNR orders at much higher rates than the able-bodied population.

Santoro, who is also the director of quality improvement research for the Down Syndrome Program at Mass General, and co-author of the new study, said people with Down syndrome and a diagnosis of COVID-19 – or COVID pneumonia – were six times more likely to be given DNRs than similar patients without Down syndrome.
