A peer-reviewed study contends the Centers for Disease Control violated federal law by inflating Coronavirus fatality numbers exponentially.
The fatality figures were inflated by at least 1,600%, according to the study, titled “COVID-19 Data Collection, Comorbidity & Federal Law: A Historical Retrospective.”
The study noted that on March 24, the CDC published an alert instructing medical examiners, coroners and physicians to deemphasize underlying causes of death, also known as pre-existing conditions or comorbidities.
Many coroners have come forward to express their concern on how officials are recording their covid deaths.
The Grand County, Colorado coroner is recently called attention to the way the state health department is classifying some deaths.
The coroner, Brenda Bock, says two of their five deaths related to COVID-19 were people who died of gunshot wounds.
“these two people had tested positive for COVID but that’s not what killed them,” she said. “The gunshot wound killed them.”
Bock said it’s simple in this case – the gunshot wound was the cause of death.
“I realize yes, you’re trying to keep count of the numbers, but you need to do it right, and these people did not die of COVID, they died of gunshot wounds and that’s how it needs to be listed,” she said.
The scientific study also concludes that the CDC “illegally enacted new rules that violated federal law, which resulted in a 1,600% inflation of current COVID-19 fatality totals.”
Under the new rules initiated on March 24th of 2020, COVID-19 was to be listed in Part I of death certificates as a definitive cause of death, regardless of confirmatory evidence, rather than in Part II as a contributor to death in the presence of pre-existing conditions.
On its website, the CDC says, just 6% of the people counted as COVID-19 deaths died of COVID-19 alone.
The following are the top underlying medical conditions linked with COVID-19 deaths:
- Influenza and pneumonia
- Respiratory failure
- Hypertensive disease
- Vascular and unspecified dementia
- Cardiac Arrest
- Heart failure
- Renal failure
- Intentional and unintentional injury, poisoning and other adverse events
- Other medical conditions
The researchers estimated the COVID-19 recorded fatalities “are inflated nationwide by as much as 1600% above what they would be had the CDC used the 2003 handbooks,” said All Concerned Citizens in a statement on the study.
“The groundbreaking peer-reviewed research…asserts that the CDC willfully violated multiple federal laws including the Information Quality Act, Paperwork Reduction Act, and Administrative Procedures Act at minimum. (Publishing Journal – Institute for Pure and Applied Knowledge / Public Health Policy Initiative) Most notably, the CDC illegally enacted new rules for data collection and reporting exclusively for COVID-19 that resulted in a 1,600% inflation of current COVID-19 fatality totals.”
Recently attempted fact-checks on this study failed miserably in the face of countless coroners like Brock and others who have spoken out about this situation, which has not changed. Within this particular ‘fact-check’ by Politifact they fail to disprove what the study contends entirely.
The Politifact article concludes with “experts agree it is more likely that coronavirus deaths are being undercounted,” despite providing zero evidence for this assertion or refuting the proven misclassifications.
The ‘Worst Flu Season in Decades’
During the beginning of the year, nearly all major media outlets reported that the world was in store for possibly the worst flu season on record. On January 3, CNN reported on Dr Fauci’s warning that the United States was “on track for the worst flu season in decades.”
While Fauci was warning about one of the deadliest flu seasons in decades, the rest of the media were telling Americans not to worry about Coronavirus, and that the flu would be far more deadly this year. The Los Angeles Times advised not to fear the Coronavirus, because ”for Americans the flu is a much bigger threat and more widespread.” In early February, USA Today wrote that “the coronavirus is scary, but the flu is deadlier and more widespread.” During the same time, the Washington Post declared “Get a Grippe America, the Flu is a Much Bigger Threat Than Coronavirus.”
But how did the United States go from the start of the “worst flu season in decades,” to influenza cases and deaths nosediving by 98 percent across the globe?
The explanation that cases of influenza nosedived simply because much of the world’s population are now donning masks, while at the same time cases of the coronavirus surge, is completely inconsistent and a nonsensical conclusion, to say the least.
The 2017-2018 flu season was so bad, hospitals were treating patients in tents. No lockdown was ever considered at all, despite tens of thousands of deaths.
The 2017-2018 epidemic was sending people to hospitals and urgent-care centers in every state, and medical centers were responding with extraordinary measures: asking staff to work overtime, set up triage tents, restricting friends and family visits, and canceling elective surgeries.
Despite all of this, the flu appears to have been ‘almost wiped out’ after the number of sufferers plummeted by 95 per cent.
The second week of January, normally the worst time for the seasonal virus, saw the number of flu-like symptoms reported to GPs at 1.1 per 100,000 people – compared with a five-year average of 27.
Last month, top epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski asserted that, “Influenza has been renamed COVID-19 in large part.” According to the CDC, the cumulative positive influenza test rate from late September into the week of December 19th was just 0.2%, compared to 8.7% from a year before. According to Wittkowski, former Head of Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design at Rockefeller University, this was because many flu infections are being incorrectly labeled as coronavirus cases.
