At a time when people are wearing masks, not touching each other, financial markets are crumbling and the U.S. economy is catastrophically grinding to a halt, the liberal governor of Pennsylvania is focusing on … gays.
In setting up methods to collect data on COVID-19, Democrat Tom Wolf has proudly announced ways to include information on which gender everyone prefers to have sex with.
Since discrimination against homosexuals is of equal importance with a deadly worldwide pandemic.
Pennsylvania’s Department of Health will be conducting extensive case-history investigations as part of contact tracing on those who test positive for the virus. The department has chosen to also collect sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) data, and its collection method and platform will be available to all other states and entities moving forward.
The department has also requested from the eHealth Authority Board that the state’s six health information organizations capture sexual orientation and gender identity data from electronic health records that can then be used by health care providers to report their COVID-19 data.
It is a top priority to ensure that all people in Pennsylvania who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 have access to diagnostic testing, according to press releases published as news stories by the Reading Eagle. To ensure a healthy Pennsylvania for all, especially during these unprecedented times, the Wolf administration has said it will partner with organizations and entities throughout our response to COVID-19 that have an established commitment to non-discriminatory practices.
“Pennsylvania’s standards of care – in times of crisis and not – are based on an ethical allocation framework, meaning care is provided equitably across all populations without regard to patient age, race, gender, creed, color, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, ethnicity, religion, or socioeconomic status.”
