Is COVID-19 Wildly Overblown?
From Johns Hopkins: “the total decrease in deaths by other causes almost exactly equals the increase in deaths by COVID-19. This suggests…deaths due to heart diseases, respiratory diseases, influenza and pneumonia may instead be recategorized as being due to COVID-19.”
In the US we have been classifying all coronavirus patient deaths as ‘COVID-19’ deaths, regardless of cause
March 25th, 2020 CDC new rules of cause of death from Covid
No ‘test’ required
People are dying, but not so many from Covid https://www.healthline.com/health-news/excess-deaths-from-covid19-pandemic
Inflating the numbers Issued March 24, the guidance tells hospitals to list COVID-19 as a cause of death regardless of whether or not there’s actual testing to confirm that’s the case.
Instead, even if the coronavirus was just a contributing factor or if it’s “assumed to have caused or contributed to death,” it can be listed as the primary cause.
What are the symptoms of Covid-19? https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html
Just about the same symptoms for any respiratory infection? https://www.healthline.com/health/acute-respiratory-disease
A reminder, Respiratory issues are the 3rd leading cause of death in the US. https://www.cdc.gov/copd/basics-about.html
Hospitals are allowed to classify nearly any respiratory conduction as Covid, then they are given payouts between $13,000-$39,000 per Medicare patient for that classification
DR. DEBORAH BIRX: So, I think in this country we’ve taken a very liberal approach to mortality. And I think the reporting here has been pretty straightforward over the last five to six weeks. Prior to that when there wasn’t testing in January and February that’s a very different situation and unknown.
There are other countries that if you had a preexisting condition and let’s say the virus caused you to go to the ICU and then have a heart or kidney problem some countries are recording as a heart issue or a kidney issue and not a COVID-19 death. Right now we are still recording it and we will I mean the great thing about having forms that come in and a form that has the ability to market as COVID-19 infection the intent is right now that those if someone dies with COVID-19 we are counting that as a COVID-19 death.
“If someone dies with COVID-19 we are counting that as a COVID-19 death.” https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2020/04/08/dr_birx_unlike_some_countries_if_someone_dies_with_covid-19_we_are_counting_that_as_a_covid-19_death.html#!
For example, in Minnesota, state officials are now admitting that every single person who dies in a nursing home after testing positive is now deemed to have died from the virus, never mind the fact that 25% of all natural deaths in a given week occur in nursing homes and that most cases of COVID-19 are asymptomatic, which means more often than not, they died exclusively of other causes.
The CDC has suspended data collection of the flu. Only Covid exists for them now https://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/overview.htam
The “Rule Out” rule. Meaning unless you can rule out Covid, it’s Covid https://rojosonmedicalclinic.wordpress.com/2016/01/25/the-use-of-rule-out-and-rule-in-in-the-clinical-diagnostic-process/
Dying with covid is being listed as having died of covid which is artificially inflating numbers.
This admission from the Illinois Director of Public health has been echoed by people like Birx, the Toronto Director of Public Health and various physicians
“If you were in hospice and had already been given a few weeks to live, and then you also were found to have COVID, that would be counted as a COVID death. It means technically even if you died of a clear alternate cause, but you had COVID at the same time, it’s still listed as a COVID death. So, everyone who’s listed as a COVID death doesn’t mean that that was the cause of the death, but they had COVID at the time of the death.”
The way ‘Covid deaths’ are being counted is a national scandal
Why no-one can ever recover from COVID-19 in England – a statistical anomaly
Excess deaths are also estimated…and none of them are being attributed to the lockdowns/mitigation efforts themselves even tho there are assuredly 10s upon 10s of 1000s of those types of deaths.

Reorienting the NHS to focus on the Covid-19 emergency was essential but indirect deaths are mounting fast and now threaten to eclipse the carnage wreaked by the virus itself.
