In this post, we return to the subject of coronavirus death counts. Considering the lockdowns, mask mandates, social distancing, closing churches, closing companies, closing schools, etc., were done to avoid massive deaths due to the virus, it is critical that we understand the true nature of the COVID-19 deaths we see every day.
The CDC publishes a weekly update of its report titled:
Provisional Death Counts for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
Go HERE for the report.
This is a critical excerpt from that report (available to the public):
Table 3 shows the types of health conditions and contributing causes mentioned in conjunction with deaths involving coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death. The number of deaths with each condition or cause is shown for all deaths and by age groups.
Take note: “For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned.”
Let’s do some math on these numbers.
Age group: 65-74. 50,000,000 people in the USA are in this age group. In this age group, roughly 35,000 died with COVID-19 as an influencer. Roughly 2,100 have died directly due to the virus. The mortality rate of those who died with an influence of the virus is, .07%. The mortality rate of those who died directly from the virus is, .004%.
Age group: 75-84. 15,000,000 people in the USA are in this age group. In this age group, roughly 99,000 died with COVID-19 as an influencer. Roughly 5,700 have died directly due to the virus. The mortality rate of those who died with an influence of the virus is, .66%. The mortality rate of those who died directly from the virus is, .03%.
*** The counts and mortality rates for those 25-54, is so low, it is not worth including in these number. The counts and mortality rates for those under 25 is much lower than the 25-54 group.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
Presently, the COVID19 death count stands at 186,874. That is a horrific number; however, if the CDC statement above is correct (and we must assume it is), then the number of people who have died directly due to the coronavirus is, 11, 212. That number remains horrible since all deaths due to this disease are painful. However, isn’t this a number the public should know?
There will be those who argue that the full number (186,874) is a list of people who died with the coronavirus having influenced their death, yet is that so? Can we say that with complete certainty? We know hospitals have attributed (coded) many deaths as COVID-19 deaths despite the primary/actual cause being something unrelated to the virus.
The other factors often ignored are the multiple existing health issues present in 94% of the people who have died with COVID-19 as an influencing factor, and the large percentages of the elderly who have died with the virus as an influencing factor.
Make what you will of the numbers, yet how can anyone argue that we should be told the full truth about this virus? We have locked down our country (as if there is a switch to do so), we have told kids they can’t go to school, we have closed off sports from society, we have closed churches, we have closed companies, we have placed fear into the hearts and minds of tens of millions, and the critical numbers are NOT known by the majority.
Isn’t the public owed the full truth before we continue to attack our freedoms and crush our economy?
The American people will respond well to the truth.
