Husband of Cancer Patient Furious with 'Dumbass' Unvaccinated Taking up Hospital Beds

The husband of a stage four cancer patient has pleaded with anti-vaxxers after his wife was discharged early after an influx of COVID patients meant there was no space left in the hospital.

TikTok user Jason Arena, @speakthetruth101, shared the video on August 5 and had gained over four million views on the clip since.

"I just got a quick question about this whole COVID, not getting vaccinated and running for the hospital once you get the virus deal. Because this s**t is out of control," he began.

Arena continued to share an anecdote of his wife requiring treatment the week earlier, but being discharged days too early to make room for COVID patients, many of which are unvaccinated.

"Last week I had to bring my wife into the hospital. She has stage four breast cancer, she was dealing with some symptoms and I had to bring her in to get some fluid drained. She was feeling some pain, she was in there for two days," he said.

"On the third day, she honestly should have stayed one more day, maybe two more days, but on the third day, instead of draining her fluid and what they wanted to do, they told us she had to be discharged because they had no room left in the hospital because of COVID," he added.

The TikTok user went on to question why those who don't believe in COVID or the vaccine, would then suddenly believe in the severity of it and the treatment for it.

"Here's my question: 99% of everybody that's in the hospital with COVID right now is unvaccinated. If you really believe that COVID is not real, and you really believe that it's not a big deal, and you really believe that you don't need to get the vaccine, that is your f***ing right. I'm not going to argue with you about that, but what I am going to argue with you about is running to the hospital once you get the virus. If you don't trust the medical field to prevent you from getting it, why do you trust them to cure you from it."

According to data analysis by The New York Times, 0.5 percent of patients receiving hospital treatment for COVID in North Carolina, where Arena resides, are breakthrough cases. This makes 99.5% of hospitalization cases unvaccinated.

The pattern can also be seen in other states across the US too.

An Associated Press analysis of available CDC data in June found that breakthrough cases accounted for less than 1,200 of 107,000 COVID hospitalizations—around 1.1 percent.

"If you really believe that COVID's not a big deal and it's not this that and the other, stick to your guns and keep your mother f***ing a** at home," the TikToker added in the video.

"Stop running to the hospital, putting everybody else at risk and in turn the collateral damage is people like my wife, who actually need medical help for a chronic disease, get kicked out of the hospital because your dumb a** was too stupid to get a f**king vaccine shot."

Some criticized his original video, claiming that people are within their rights to not want the vaccine but want medical help should they catch it, or more so that they don't trust the vaccine but trust local doctors and hospitals.

In response, Arena explained his views that both the vaccine and COVID treatments are just as much "experiments" as one another.

"If you truly believe that you're making a responsible decision to not get the vaccine because you don't trust it or the drugs haven't been developed long enough, the vaccine hasn't been developed long enough for you to feel comfortable taking it, all that I'm telling you is be a responsible person, for yourself and don't go to the hospital for treatment, because treatment for COVID is an experiment, the only way that they have to experiment the drugs and their effect on COVID is to test them on COVID patients in the hospital, I just want to point that out," he said.

Arena's wife Marilyn stopped chemotherapy treatments in April and started an "aggressive alternative treatment regiments and quickly returned to her old self."

However, at the end of July, Marilyn required a permanent catheter drain to help relieve her returned severe symptoms.
