Fatal motorcycle accident listed as a COVID death

This is a bizarre story. Florida recently reported two people in their 20s had died of COVID-19. Deaths from the coronavirus in this age group are very rare, so a WOFL-TV reporter phoned up a local health official to find out if these two had underlying health conditions that contributed to their deaths. One apparently had an underlying health condition. But I will let The Blaze explain what the health official said about the second individual. It was unbelievable: The station was looking into records that showed two individuals in their 20s as coronavirus fatalities and asked Orange County Health Officer Dr. Raul Pino if either person had any underlying conditions. Pino’s on-camera reply to WOFL?  “The first one didn’t have any. He died in a motorcycle accident,” he said. Yes, you read that right. The person who didn’t have an underlying health condition died in a motorcycle accident, but COVID was still listed as the cause of death.

Under 50s more likely to die from accidents than COVID

According to Cambridge University statistician Sir David Spiegelhalter, a healthy person in Britain under the age of 50 is more likely to die from an accident (this includes car accidents) than from COVID. Spiegelhalter added that of the near 43,000 deaths in Britain that have been blamed on COVID, only 959 were 50 years of age or under. And of that group 80% of those had underlying health conditions which means they would have undoubtedly survived if they had been healthy. This has left many wondering if COVID was the cause of death or the underlying health condition. Which of course begs the obvious questions, why was the whole country quarantined? Why were the healthy quarantined? He said: Under 40s were more like to die in car accident than COVID Under 25s more likely to die of pneumonia or the flu than COVID READ: Healthy under-50s are more likely to die from a car accident or an injury than Covid-19, leading statistician says Epidemiologists in Canada came to a similar conclusion.

Only 6 in San Diego County were ‘pure’ COVID deaths

San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond is reporting of the 200 deaths in his county attributed to the Coronavirus, only six were pure COVID deaths. In other words, the other 194 who died had underlying health issues. In an interview with the San Diego Tribune, Desmond said: “We’ve unfortunately had six pure, solely coronavirus deaths — six out of 3.3 million people. I mean, what number are we trying to get to with those odds? I mean, it’s incredible. We want to be safe, and we can do it, but unfortunately, it’s more about control than getting the economy going again and keeping people safe.” “Any loss of life, for any reason, is worth preventing. Clearly, those with underlying circumstances are the most vulnerable. I believe we can keep people safe and responsibly open our businesses.” Desmond, who has been calling for an end to the lockdown, said the government must focus its attention on protecting those most vulnerable to the virus — the elderly and those with underlying health issues.
