“Dehumanized”: COVID Patient in Texas Hospital Had Plastic Bag Placed Over Her Head
A report by the Odessa Accountability Project claims that a 17-year-old COVID patient suffering from breathing difficulties entered a hospital in Texas, only for staff to place a plastic bag over her head after she removed her face mask.
A photo of the teenager posted to the group’s Facebook page shows the young woman with the bag, which features the words “equipment cover,” placed over her head and upper body. She is also wearing a face mask.
You don’t need to be a doctor to know the dangers of putting plastic bags over people’s heads, especially if they are already suffering from breathing difficulties.
The young woman was “humiliated and dehumanized by the staff” for apparently removing her face mask.
“The girl’s mother said she complained of not being able to breath well, taking off the mask, and was asked to put it back on,” states the post.
“The bag was over her head for roughly 30 minutes and she was instructed to save the bag for future use throughout the hospital.”
Respondents to the post reacted with horror.
“If that was my child, or grandchild, I’d walk her out of that hospital after telling them where to put that bag,” remarked one.
“I can’t believe they did this to her,” said another.
“I don’t believe in most medical lawsuits but in this case I would definitely be talking to an attorney,” commented another.

French President Emmanuel Macron Says Someone Who Refuses COVID Vaccine Is ‘Not a Citizen’
French president Macron’s desire to ‘piss off’ unvaccinated individuals triggers outrage
French President Emmanuel Macron faced significant criticism for his comments claiming that he would like to “piss off” unvaccinated individuals.
Macron spoke candidly during an interview with French newspaper Le Parisien, during which he said that he wanted to make life difficult for individuals who have not received a COVID-19 vaccine. The French “sanitary pass” has prompted a number of protests and stiff opposition while the country nears 75% full vaccination.
“I really want to piss them off, and we’ll carry on doing this – to the end,” Macron said three months ahead of a presidential election. “I won’t send [unvaccinated people] to prison, so we need to tell them, from 15 January, you will no longer be able to go to the restaurant. You will no longer be able to go for a coffee, you will no longer be able to go to the theatre. You will no longer be able to go to the cinema.”
The French Parliament heard Macron’s comments during a debate over his proposed bill to tighten restrictions for unvaccinated individuals, leading to a swift and strong uproar in response.
His opponents have labeled the comments “unworthy” of a president.
“Even if one doesn’t share their choice, they have broken none of our country’s laws,” Marine Le Pen, Macron’s chief opponent in the upcoming election, told reporters late Tuesday. “He is continuing his policy of division, of pitting the French against one another.”
She later tweeted “A president shouldn’t say that…Emmanuel Macron is unworthy of his office.”
Leftist politician Jean-Luc Melanchon described the remarks as an “astonishing confession,” according to the BBC.
But Macron’s allies have defended the comments, with Stéphane Séjourné, a member of the European Parliament, arguing on Twitter that unvaccinated individuals have “bothered” the French by “forcing the rest of the population to endure restrictions.”
Debate over Macron’s bill continue into Wednesday as opponents still seek to delay its passage. Some of his supporters claimed to have received death threats because they are backing the legislation, The New York Times reported.
