94% of Covid deaths in US had underlying health issues

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: The CDC listed the following as the top underlying medical conditions linked to coronavirus deaths: * Influenza and pneumonia * Respiratory failure * Hypertensive disease * Diabetes * Vascular and unspecified dementia * Cardiac Arrest * Heart failure * Renal failure * Intentional and unintentional injury, poisoning and other adverse events * Other medical conditions READ: CDC: 6% of coronavirus deaths …

Did COVID get downgraded to a severe seasonal flu?

The American Center for Disease Control (CDC) now estimates that approximately 24 million Americans have been infected with the virus. This is 10 time higher than previously thought. This means, according to an article in the New England Journal of Medicine that number of people who have died from the Coronavirus is “considerably less than 1%”. Studies have shown that 80% of people who come down with COVID show no or minimal symptoms, meaning they don’t even know they are sick and consequently were never tested. WND explains what this means: In fact, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top White House infectious disease expert, co-authored an article published March 26 in the New England Journal of Medicine predicting the case fatality rate for the coronavirus would turn out to be like that of a “severe seasonal influenza.” However, WHO created a panic when it wrongly predicted early in the pandemic a death rate of 3.4% based on flawed computer projections. Studies are also revealing that age and health are risk factors when it comes to COVID. So instead …

Is CDC Exaggerating COVID death counts in the US?

A recent article by the Washington Post suggests that Dr. Birx believes the US Center for Disease Control (CDC) may be exaggerating the death count for COVID by 25%. Dr. Deborah Birx coordinates the White House coronavirus task force, and she apparently told CDC Director Robert Redfield that “there is nothing from the CDC that I can trust.” READ: Dr. Birx Reportedly Believes Coronavirus Death Toll Inflated By Up To 25% So is there any reason to suspect the COVID death counts are exaggerated? Hospitals are paid up to 20% more by medicare if a patient is coded as a coronavirus case. And this extra payment does not even require testing. Hospitals are also paid three times as much if the hospital puts a person on a ventilator because of the virus.

According to CBS4, in April three deaths in Colorado nursing homes were reclassified as COVID deaths, even though doctors had cited other causes as the reason. READ: Colorado’s …

Male circumcision: It’s the healthy thing to do

[by Dean Smith] The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is sure to rankle a few activists. It has just released a statement providing guidelines for male circumcision that involves the removal of the foreskin from the penis. In the process, the CDC was essentially promoting the procedure. The Jews have practiced circumcision for thousands of years after God instituted the practice with Abraham (Genesis 17:10-14) as a sign of a covenant between God and His people. However, as religious rite it was lacking in some ways. It was largely unseen and only involved half the population. I have always suspected God chose circumcision because it also provided health benefits. I believe many aspects of the law were health related.
