I’ve had a few people taunting me for not keeping up with COVID stats. Here’s one reason I gave up; the CDC has admitted they’re counting heart attack deaths (55,000 so far in 2020), as COVID deaths.
“The question the model set out to ask was whether lockdown states experience fewer Covid-19 cases and deaths than social-distancing states, adjusted for all of the above variables. The answer? No”
As of August 25, these are the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States.
|Chronic Lower Respiratory Disease||95,918|
|Influenza and Pneumonia||36,011|
|Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis||31,394|
As a percentage of the total:
|Chronic Lower Respiratory Disease||5%|
|Influenza and Pneumonia||2%|
|Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis||2%|
How many people have died from each cause today:
|Chronic Lower Respiratory Disease||403|
|Influenza and Pneumonia||151|
|Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis||132|
