Despite the fact most media are reporting coronavirus that has killed more than 67,000
Americans, the official Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website shows nearly have as many deaths.
As of this writing, the WorldMeters.info site says there have been 67,224 deaths thus far from the virus, and most media all week long have been reporting a figure of about 66,000.
But according to the official CDC website, just 37,308 people have died from the disease in the United States.
That figure includes confirmed and presumed coronavirus deaths, the site notes.
In addition, the CDC data show that the pandemic peaked in the United States the week of April 11, now nearly three weeks ago — yet several states and cities are continuing or extending their current stay-at-home orders.
Also, the number of COVID-19 deaths have been steadily decreasing since April 25, according to the listed data, with some 93 percent of all coronavirus deaths occurring in people 55 years old and older.
And, as noted by Newsmax journalist John Cardillo, data reported on WorldInfo is most likely a “scam” for attributing other causes of death to the virus, in order to inflate the numbers.
“I’m well aware of the CDC ‘lag times’ but this isn’t that, so stop with that excuse for these numbers. They’ve separated out other illnesses that were the actual causes of deaths and now the mortality rate is half of what it was last week. It’s been nothing but a scam,” he tweeted.
Another Twitter user retweeted a CDC post that said hospitalization rates for COVID-19, “which are cumulative, have started to level off,” while noting that the rate of hospitalization “is highest among adults 65 and older and similar to what has been seen during a comparable time period during a recent high severity flu season.”
That last part is important because the Left-wing pundit class keeps telling us we’re not allowed to compare coronavirus to ‘the flu.’
This new data further undermines the health experts’ coronavirus projection models. They claimed in March that more than 1 million people would die from the virus in the U.S. alone.
In February, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases chief Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of President Donald Trump’s top coronavirus task force advisers, said in February after looking at the data it appeared that coronavirus was “acting more like bad pandemic influenza (efficient spread, overall lower mortality) than like SARS (less efficient spread, overall higher mortality),” according to an update posted by the American Medical Association.
