  1. 6.7 million people in Indiana.
    They claim 3000 Covid deaths. Indy Star claims 68% are nursing home patients. So we ruin our economy for under 1000 deaths among 6.7 million?

    1. The CDC updated the provisional counts on deaths that have occurred from COVID-19 on Aug. 26, and in the section on comorbidities, they revealed that only 6% of the deaths were caused by just the virus.
      Might it be a propgandemic!

  2. Steve, the 6% report is terribly misleading without context. It has been reported since the beginning of the pandemic that people who die from COVID-19 almost always have other health conditions. That applies to many health-related causes of death. A large percentage of people who die of cancer are actually killed by pneumonia or sepsis or another health issue. The cause of death is still listed as cancer.
