Jacking Up The Numbers

Recommended Posts

  My wife and I have been wondering how many deaths were being attributed to Covid19  that may have had a different underlying cause.   After reading the following article, It seems that rather than reporting with a more accurate and scientific method, the numbers may have been jacked up  to fit prediction models.. or something. IMO, this kind of irresponsible service is at best misleading, and more accurately IMO, panic inducing.

The federal government is classifying the deaths of patients infected with the coronavirus as COVID-19 deaths, regardless of any underlying health issues that could have contributed to the loss of someone's life.

Dr. Deborah Birx, the response coordinator for the White House coronavirus task force, said the federal government is continuing to count the suspected COVID-19 deaths, despite other nations doing the opposite.

"There are other countries that if you had a pre-existing condition, and let's say the virus caused you to go to the ICU [intensive care unit] and then have a heart or kidney problem," she said during a Tuesday news briefing at the White House. "Some countries are recording that as a heart issue or a kidney issue and not a COVID-19 death.

"The intent is ... if someone dies with COVID-19 we are counting that," she added.

President Trump on Wednesday questioned Mayor Bill de Blasio’s revised coronavirus death toll — a day after New York City revised how it tracks fatalities by adding more than 3,700 victims who died of apparent coronavirus symptoms and were never tested.

 Jacking the numbers to support the narrative... and economic damage ?   Keep the sheep calm, I guess!  SMH

 So, doing the math, even without a calculator, I can tell that a full one third (1/3) of New York's deaths were attributed to Covid19 (( or an equivalent)) without having ever been tested. WTF?  What is  the "equivalent" of Covid19.   star trek bullshit GIF

The Big Apple’s new death toll is 10,367. That figures combines the 6,589 victims who tested positive for the virus plus another 3,778  who were never tested, but whose death certificates list the cause of death as “COVID-19 or an equivalent,” according to city Health Department data from March 11 through April 13.
