Covid-19 facts not fake news lies, 43% of deaths in nursing homes, Gov Cooper et al enabled “protesters” failed public, Deaths not cases
“The (American) press, which is mostly controlled by vested
interests, has an excessive influence on public opinion.”… Albert Einstein
“There were 58,148 total deaths the week ending 2/1/2020, pre Covid-19, in the middle of winter and flu season. There were 15,221 total deaths the week ending 6/20/2020”…Citizen Wells
“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells
Cases of Covid-19 are up.
That is all the lying fake news media wants you to hear.
Why? It is all about removing President Trump.
Now the truth, facts, reality check from Citizen Wells.
The true arbiter of the impact on our health is death.
Something we can use as an apples to apples comparison.
In any given year, Americans dies from a myriad of diseases and accidents.
Also, as reported at Citizen Wells, the vast majority of Covid-19 deaths happen to older folks and those with preexisting conditions.
Now let’s look at the latest data from the CDC, week ending June 20, 2020.
There were 271 Covid-19 deaths for the week ending 6/20/2020 with 90 % being age 55 or over.
Total deaths for the week were 15,221.
Peak Covid-19 deaths occurred the week ending 4/18/2020.
There were 16,343 Covid-19 deaths.
93 % of those were age 55 and over.
It is clear that Covid-19 deaths have plummeted despite the increase in recorded cases.
It is also clear that the vast majority of the deaths have happened to older Americans and those with compromised health.
What we do not yet know is the impact of “protesters”, thugs, rioters and modern day Nazis given carte blanche to gather and create bedlam by governors like NC Roy Cooper, the same governor who referred to the Ace Speedway gatherings as a “Imminent Hazard.”
Time will tell.
“Since some of our earliest news about Covid-19 came out of a nursing home in Washington State, we had a proper heads up.
Conclusion: governors and states apparently have done a poor job of protecting our most vulnerable populations in nursing homes and probably overreacted in regard to the rest of the population.
The fake news media has not helped.
