A video report by British media on coronavirus has gained attention after users noticed healthcare workers performing care on a mannequin instead of a real person.

The report by Channel 4 News, called “New York coronavirus cases surge – hospitals struggle to cope,” showed several clips of healthcare workers practicing on mannequins instead of using real-time footage, suggesting some hospitals may not be struggling to cope with the coronavirus as reported.

The main clip in question shows a healthcare worker adjusting a ventilator hooked up to a mannequin laying face up, with metallic joints and a large throat hole clearly visible.

The footage begs the question: if hospitals truly are struggling with the influx of coronavirus patients, why would the media use footage of healthcare workers practicing on mannequins?

Notably, Infowars has also reported on numerous videos by curious individuals checking out their local hospitals, only to find them quiet and not at all overwhelmed like the media has been portraying, even in hotspots like New York City.

The phenomenon of empty or underwhelmed hospitals amid the COVID-19 pandemic has become so suspicious that “FilmYourHospital” began trending on social media last week.

Is it possible that the panic behind the coronavirus outbreak is manufactured by the media establishment, and if so, why?

Perhaps it’s about generating fear to make Americans more compliant with the erosion of civil liberties in the name of public health.
