The CDC is combining deaths from pneumonia, flu and Covid-19 as shown on the CDC’s website here.
The CDC says “In early December, the overall weekly hospitalization rate reached its highest point since the beginning of the pandemic and remains elevated. ... Based on death certificate data, the percentage of deaths attributed to pneumonia, influenza or COVID-19 (PIC) for week 53 was 14.5% and it remains above the epidemic threshold.”
Why would the CDC combine deaths from flu and pneumonia with deaths from Covid-19?
To inflate the numbers?
Prof. William M. Briggs says that every week in the US, 5% to 12% of deaths are from pneumonia and flu — every week — peaking at 12% at this time of year.
In a review of 2,800 death certificates claiming COVID-19 as the cause of death, Senator Dr. Scott Jensen (Minnesota) found that Covid-19 deaths had been over-counted by 40% as noted here.
Senator Dr. Scott Jensen (Minnesota) also noted that hospitals have a financial incentive to diagnose patients with COVID-19 as noted here.
Others have also found that Covid-19 deaths are being over-counted as noted here.
Two people in Colorado died of gunshot wounds, but they were counted as Covid-19 deaths the local coroner reveals.
Max Nelson from the Freedom Foundation reveals that some deaths certificates in the state of Washington mention COVID-19 to simply say that a person had recovered from Covid-19 or that the person did not have COVID-19, and yet these deaths were listed as COVID-19 deaths.
They found a 99-year-old died after losing her balance and falling, but she was counted as a COVID-19 death.
They also found a 71-year-old died from “blunt force injury of the head and neck”, but this person was listed as a COVID-19 death.
They also found a 64-year-old who died after overdosing on heroin and fentanyl, but their death was listed as a COVID-19 death.
“It’s very concerning,” Max Nelson says.
Do you believe what the CDC is telling us? I do not.
