A little more than a week ago, we reported that both Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx admitted that the reporting on coronavirus deaths was quite liberal.
The reporting method has and will continue to be that if someone who passes away during this pandemic tests positive for coronavirus and had underlying conditions, they are, for the more part, being reported as a coronavirus death.
The state of New York recently upped its death toll by almost 3,800 due to very similar liberal reporting, which has many of us reporting on this wondering just how many deaths are being reported that have nothing at all to with the coronavirus.
The initial admission came on April 7 during the daily coronavirus update at the White House.
First Dr. Birx stated, “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.
“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.”
Then, Dr. Fauci added further clarification, stating, “I can’t imagine if someone comes in with coronavirus and goes to an ICU, and they have an underlying heart condition and they die, they are going to say cause of death heart attack.
“I cannot see that happening. So, I don’t think it’s going to be a problem.”
New York Adds Massive Numbers
The above was already cause for concern, because the death toll may be being posted as much higher than it is.
If, for instance, someone had a heart attack and had tested positive for coronavirus, doctors are then assuming the coronavirus triggered the heart attack and are lumping that death in with COVID-19 deaths.
On April 14, the New York Post reported that the state had added 3,778 CV-19 deaths to its overall death toll, eclipsing the 10,000 mark.
The additional deaths were tagged as “COVID-19 or an equivalent.”
The new deaths, according to the report, were individuals that were never tested for CV-19 but had that tag above as their cause of death.
The report would go on to say it believed the death toll of New York was short because of the deaths that occurred at people’s homes rather than in the hospital.
The assumption being made here is a rather large one as it once again presumes that someone that dies from a heart attack, diabetes, or other problem had their death triggered by the virus rather than that underlying condition.
I am not trying to downplay the seriousness of the virus, but it just seems like doctors are going out of their way now to pump up CV-19 death stats without really knowing if the virus contributed to the person’s death.
Because of the mass deaths, many of these individuals will not even get an autopsy, so we are just going to be forced to live with these numbers which may end up being significantly inflated so health experts can err on the side of caution.
Normally, this may not be such a big deal, but when Democrats and the media are talking about how mismanaged the crisis was by Trump, I think he is at the very least owed authentic numbers, not assumed numbers.
