In Pennsylvania, officials reduced the death toll and removed some of the people who were diagnosed COVID-19 because coroners disputed the inflated numbers. The Star Tribune in Minnesota has dropped Johns Hopkins University as a source, because it is counting both confirmed and unconfirmed cases of COVID-19.
Illinois Department of Public Health Director, Dr. Ngozi Ezike, says that ANYONE who dies after testing positive for the virus is classified as having died from the coronavirus. “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.”
Snohomish County Sheriff Adam Fortney posted a letter on Facebook stating: “We have the right to peaceably assemble. We have the right to keep and bear arms. We have the right to attend church service of any denomination. The impacts of COVID 19 no longer warrant the suspension of our Constitutional rights.”
The CDC has created a new policy to keep track of Coronavirus deaths that includes any case where the virus “caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death.” Confirmed lab tests are not required! [Actually, that has been the case all along, but this announcement makes it official policy.]
