My father had Klebsiella pneumoniae, caused by BACTERIA

Blogpost by Marica Micallef

On the 19th of October 2020, when dad had been in ITU for five days already (since the 14th), the tests detected that dad had Klebsiella pneumoniae in his lungs. In the medical files, it is also stated that this was detected by the RT-PCR Test.  So, this validates what Dr Mullis, the inventor of the RT-PCR Test had stated – that with the PCR-Test you can test anything and you can find anything.  So, the question is “What are people being tested positive for?” “Did my father test positive for it, in his first swab test?”

What is Klebsiella?   Klebsiella is a type of BACTERIA (not a virus) that can cause different types of healthcare-associated infections, including pneumonia, among others. Increasingly, Klebsiella bacteria have developed antimicrobial resistance, most recently to the class of antibiotics known as carbapenems (no wonder the antibiotics that my father was given, did not even improve it by a fraction!) Klebsiella bacteria are normally found in the human intestines (where they DO NOT cause disease), in human stool and in the mouth. I was alarmed to read that patients who are on the ventilators or intravenous (vein) catheters, and patients who are taking long courses of certain antibiotics (my dad was while at hospital) are most at risk for Klebsiella infections. Healthy people usually do not get Klebsiella infections. Therefore, this points to the fact that my father might have got klebsiella pneumoniae while under the ventilator and being administered a hideous cocktail of medicine intravenously.  This means that he was exposed to the bacteria which entered the respiratory tract to cause him the pneumoniae.

Research also states that it can be spread through person-to-person contact from one patient to the next AND THAT THE BACTERIA IS NOT SPREAD THROUGH THE AIR!! Instead, it can easily be spread when one healthcare professional touches one patient. So, my question as to “Why are patients in ITU all next to each other, especially in ITU 6 – the Infectious Disease Section” – when cross-contamination of this bacteria occurs – still holds. Could it be that the healthcare professionals or the hospital system, aided this?

My other question is: “could it be that since klebsiella is also found in the mouth, it developed with the humid conditions that the mask created, which then made it go to the respiratory tract?  What did my father have in his left lung, when he first visited hospital? What was the mild airspace shadowing in the left middle lung zone of my father, as diagnosed in his chest x-ray, on Friday 9th October 2020? Why didn’t the medical staff recognise what it was? Why was my father sent home to quarantine, just because he tested positive, and denied a cure for his lungs? Why do they write: 


Why aren’t patients treated in situ? Why risk worsening the symptoms? The reply “because he had covid” does not make sense, since four days later, my dad was admitted at hospital again. Why wasn’t he not admitted from day one? Hiding the reality of the situation does not help. So, I confirm that my father did not have Covid, which we are told to be IN THE AIR (since the klebsiella is not spread through the air) but had Klebsiella pneumoniae which was causing destructive changes to his lungs, specifically to the alveoli. The ventilator and the catheter then made it worse which made it develop to Cryptogenic Organising Pneumoniae, which will be discussed in my next blog.
