  1. Now don’t get me wrong, as Covid 19 definitely exists and is real and has made people sick and has killed people. But, is it just me or are others finding that it is becoming increasingly more and more difficult to believe the State Health Departments, CDC, the government and their data. Especially after CDC’s announcement several weeks ago where they stated that the deaths due to Covid across the nation were inflated because they said that in approximately 85-90% of the cases, there were underlying morbidities that were the greater cause of death (COD) even though Covid was listed on the death certificate as the COD. Also, a couple of friends of mine just lost their grandparents. One was in late Stage 4 cancer and the other was in CHF (congestive heart failure). Both passed away and when they received their death certificates, the COD in both were Covid 19…and one of them was NEVER even diagnosed with Covid. How can anyone believe the data any longer with information like this? Do you think the hospital’s reportable Covid #’s would be significantly less if reimbursement wasn’t increased for a Covid diagnosis?

    1. I begin to wonder about the data myself. It’d be nice to know which people died OF COVID versus which people died WITH COVID.
