I've been getting tons of emails on this one, and, granted, it's about that story we're all sick of hearing about, it is nonetheless intriguing. So thanks to you all who passed it along and shared it. I had so many people sending it to me that it vaulted to the top of the finals box. The CDC appears to have released an interesting set of numbers which, if true, raise lots (and lots[and lots]) of questions:
Now, here's the clincher, the whopper doozie squating in the middle of all of this:
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.
Wait a minute, of all the deaths being reported, only 6% are due to the virus itself without other factors (co-morbidities)?
Now, if you've been following this whole story carefully, very early on many in alternative media were raising serious questions about the numbers of reported deaths, and many were claiming that people who were dying with covid were being reported as having died of covid, and here we appear to have a back-handed admission that this was so.
A further ramification of these new numbers is that if the percentage of deaths from the virus alone as a percentage of deaths with complicating factors is so small, the percentage of deaths relative to the whole population is even smaller.
And if that's the case, then there seems to me to be a further implication, especially for those calling for mandatory vaccines against the virus: why is a vaccine needed for a virus that now appears, by these latest numbers, not to be nearly the dreaded pandemic we were led to believe? Or is there some other agenda behind that? Or conversely, why is there a call for a expensive vaccine research and mandates, when the dreaded (and inexpensive) hydroxychloriquine seems to have, by some sources' lights, an effective therapeutic and in some cases curative effect?
At the minimum, these new numbers raise some disturbing questions, and appear to corroborate at least to some degree those early skeptics' views of the basis of the numbers being reported. Time will tell, of course, what other new numbers from the CDC might indicate, or, as the case may be, backpedal, on these latest statistics.
In the meantime, Kamaula Harris is calling for nationwide mask mandates, while others push the meme that it will "never go away," raising the prospects that "they" want to keep everyone masked... forever. The question is why. Why - with previous planscamdemics (think SARS from a few years ago) - were no such draconian measures instituted? And why institute them now?
Bottom line: the CDC's numbers raise disturbing questions and implications. This is a case of "you tell me"...
See you on the flip side.
