After incorrectly asserting that more than 100,000 children in the United States are hospitalized, many of them in critical condition, because of COVID-19, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is experiencing outrage….
This was said by the Obama-appointed Justice during oral arguments on Friday over President Biden’s rule mandating private firms to guarantee that their staff be either vaccinated or subjected to regular testing.
“We have hospitals that are virtually at capacity, with patients who are critically sick and on ventilators,” she said further. “We have over 100,000 children in critical condition, many of them are on ventilators, which is unprecedented in our history.” Politifact, a fact-checking group affiliated with the Poynter Institutes, responded promptly to Ms. Sotomayor’s statements.
On Friday, Politifact said that “her allegation is not backed by statistics.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there have been 82,842 COVID-positive children admitted to hospitals since August 1, 2020.
At the time of Ms. Sotomayor’s statements, 3,342 people were presently hospitalized with confirmed COVID-19, according to the CDC. If suspected COVD-19 cases are added, the total number of cases might reach 4,652.
“Both statistics represent less than 5 percent of the total number of people named by Sotomayor,” according to Politifact.

Republican legislators and former Trump administration officials accused the Justice Department of spreading false information.
In a tweet on Saturday, former Trump White House adviser Stephen Miller stated that “the crucial takeaway from Justice Sotomayor’s covid misinformation is not one of covid hypocrisy but one of covid fanaticism: she, like others swept up in mandate monomania, has evidently come to believe the most drastic falsehoods with the utmost conviction.”
Sen. Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican who is well-known for his high-profile clashes with Dr. Anthony Fauci, weighed in on the debate on Twitter as well.
“Does Fauci provide advice to Justice Sotomayor?” He wrote a letter. “Will YouTube censor her?” you may wonder.
Mr. Byron Donalds, a Republican from Florida, has likewise called on the IT industry to speak out against Ms. Sotomayor’s number-fudging.

His question on Twitter was, “How can Justice Sotomayor be so incorrect on COVID-19?” It’s possible that she’s listening to false information coming from the political left. “I’m curious whether @Twitter will track down and suspend the accounts of those spreading false information on COVID-19.”
The oral arguments before the Supreme Court lasted almost four hours on Friday. Mr. Biden’s mandate has not been implemented as of yet, awaiting a decision by the United States Supreme Court.
