CDC Data Shows Only 6% of COVID-19 Deaths Listed the Virus as the Sole Cause of Death

The CDC silently updated its Covid death count and acknowledged that only 6% of previously listed Covid deaths died from the illness. Of that 6%, most were of advanced age and possibly would have died anyway. The other 94% had other conditions which, in themselves, could have caused the death or which weakened the patients’ immune system, making them more vulnerable. The CDC wrote, “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.” [Please read that again.]

These “additional conditions” include Respiratory disease, Circulatory disease, Sepsis, Malignant neoplasms (cancer), Diabetes, Obesity, Alzheimer disease, Vascular and unspecified dementia, Renal failure, Intentional and unintentional injury, poisoning and other adverse events, Influenza, Pneumonia, chronic lower respiratory diseases, Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome, Respiratory failure, Respiratory arrest, Other diseases of the respiratory system, Hypertensive diseases, Ischemic heart disease, Cardiac arrest, Cardiac arrhythmia, Heart failure, Cerebrovascular diseases, and Other diseases of the circulatory system. None of these were listed as cause of death. COVID-19 took the rap for all of it. -GEG

From First State Update:

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) this week released a report that shows the types of health conditions and contributing causes mentioned in conjunction with deaths involving coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

In the latest update, the CDC pointed out that only 6% of deaths related to COVID-19 listed COVID-19 as the only cause of death. The vast majority of patients that were listed as COVID-19 related deaths also suffered from serious comorbidities.

The CDC is reporting 167,558 COVID-19 related deaths in the United State as of August 28, 2020.  Out of the 167,558 COVID-19 related deaths, only 10,053 (6%) mentioned COVID-19 as the only cause according to the CDC’s new numbers. The other 94% of the COVID-19 related deaths had comorbidities associated with those deaths.

For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.
