Bad Statistics

I find this interesting:

“The underlying cause depends upon what and where conditions are reported on the death certificate. However, the rules for coding and selection of the underlying cause of death are expected to result in COVID- 19 being the underlying cause more often than not,” the guidelines read.

“COVID-19 should be reported on the death certificate for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death,” CDC guidelines issued March 24 read. “Certifiers should include as much detail as possible based on their knowledge of the case, medical records, laboratory testing, etc.,” the guidance continued.”

S if John comes to the hospital, with a heart condition at 75 years old, already on oxygen, with diabetes, showing signs of Covid 19  and subsequently dies, then he is assumed to have died from coronavirus, tested or not.

So we won’t have any decent statistics to work with, later.

“If the decedent had other chronic conditions such as COPD or asthma that may have also contributed, these conditions can be reported in Part II.”

I am gonna go work outside today.

  1. It's like saying a drunk driver who smashes into a tree died of alcohol poisoning.

    This whole thing was exploited to keep people anxious, angry, paranoid, and isolated, not caring that the government is trading their liberties and rights for the illusion of safety.

    …I'm not buying it…

    Panic is the virus…

  2. Numbers aren't adding up for a number of things… Italy was reporting damn near EVERY death as Covid…
