Real Clear Politics reports that while the COVID-19 fatality rate is a little bit worse than the seasonal flu over the last decade, it’s dramatically lower than the World Health Organization’s estimate of 3.4% and Dr. Anthony Fauci’s initial guess of about 2%.”
Despite this positive news, the press continues to offer a steady diet of fear generating projections. For weeks the press spent 24/7 of air time repeating the WHO’s projection of 20 million deaths. With that number thoroughly debunked, the Washington Post still runs headlines like, “As deaths mount, Trump tries to convince Americans it’s safe to inch back to normal,” and “Georgia leads the race to become America’s No. 1 Death Destination.”
While evidence mounts the CDC’s method of counting COVID-19 related deaths is questionable. Dr. Ngozi Ezike, director of Illinois Department of Public Health, explained, “If you were in hospice and had already been given a few weeks to live, and then you also were found to have COVID, that would be counted as a COVID death. It means, technically even if you died of [a] clear alternative cause, but you had COVID at the same time, it’s still listed as a COVID death.”
Even so, the New York Times, Washington Post, and CNN claim that the true number of fatalities are being under-counted.
