    1. “For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death,” the agency says. In other words, 94 percent of those who died with COVID-19 already had two or more other serious health issues such as hypertension or diabetes.
      Debbie deserves an apology.

    2. Um, no.

      .

      The other conditions don’t cause immediate death. Most are chronic conditions managed for years with drugs; the two most common are high blood pressure (hypertension) and diabetes. Those things may cause death someday, usually in old age, but catching COVID-19 impacts people with those conditions much worse and it causes their death as a result of catching the disease.

  1. My neighbor has relatives in Jasper – one of the testing sites had everyone listed as Positive – people went to be retested and all came out negative. The first testing station was processing the tests incorrectly.

  2. 125 people die per day in Indiana’s 6.7 million population.
    When only 5 of those have Covid as a contributing factor, can’t we go back to our lives?

    1. It’s pretty close to the leading cause of death this year. Among all the leading causes (cancer, heart disease, stroke, auto wrecks), it is the ONE that is highly contagious.
