According to a report on the US Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) website, only 6% of the 167,558 (10,053) people listed as dying from the Coronavirus in the US as of Aug 28. 2020 solely died from COVID.
This means the remaining 94% had one and usually more underlying health issues. In fact, according to CDC they averaged 2.6 additional underlying health issues.
The CDC reports on its website:
“For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.”
The Blaze reports on what some of those other underlying health issues were:

Here are a few more facts from the report:
- Percentage of people who are listed as dying from COVID related conditions between the ages of 0-54 is 8.16%: 13,674
- The number of people between the ages of 0-54 who died solely from Covid, meaning they had no underlying health issues: 820
According to CDC’s report this list of COVID deaths included intentional and unintentional injuries. One of those would be the person in Florida who died in a motorcycle accident but was listed as a covid death and the 35-year-old man in Colorado who the Coroner listed as dying from Alcohol poisoning because he had nearly twice the lethal limit, but who the state’s health department listed as dying from Covid, because he also had the virus.

Predictably many in the mainstream media are absolutely losing it over the report. They are the ones who turned a pandemic into a panic-demic.
