A new report out by the CDC reveals that 94% of COVID deaths in the US weren’t just COVID, meaning they all had other “health conditions and contributing causes:”
CBS 2 – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new data last week that depicts how many Americans who have died from COVID-19 also had contributing conditions.
According to the report, only 6% of deaths have COVID-19 as the only cause mentioned, revealing that 94% of patients who died from coronavirus also had other “health conditions and contributing causes.”
The CDC listed the following as the top underlying medical conditions linked to coronavirus deaths:
Influenza and pneumonia
Vascular and unspecified dementia
Intentional and unintentional injury, poisoning and other adverse events
Other medical conditions
The CDC explains that their data uses provisional death counts to “deliver the most complete and accurate picture of lives lost to COVID-19.”
These numbers are based on death certificates, which the organization says are the most reliable source of data. Death certificates reportedly contain information that is not available anywhere else and includes comorbid conditions, race and ethnicity and place of death.
The CDC says provisional death counts may not match counts from other sources, such as numbers from county health departments, because death certificates take time to be completed, states report at different rates, it takes officials extra time to code COVID-19 deaths, and because other reporting systems use different definitions or methods for counting deaths.
In other words, it’s the vulnerable who are vulnerable to the virus. What about the rest of us and all of this lockdown madness?
