Is Florida’s COVID death count exaggerated by 45%?

According to a report given to Florida’s House of Representatives by Dr. Andrew Bostom up to 45% of Florida’s COVID deaths may be mis-classified. In other words, the COVID death count in that state may be exaggerated. It is part of the ongoing controversy that many people who died of COVID had serious underlying health issues and the question becomes did they die of COVID or with COVID. WND explains: Up to 45% of the deaths attributed to COVID-19 in Florida may have been wrongly classified, according to a researcher who has analyzed a report by the state House of Representatives. […] “This aggregate mortality total indicates, plausibly, that up to 45% (6,227/13,920) of Florida’s death certificate recorded ‘Covid-19 deaths’ may not merit that classification,” Bostom wrote. A cover memo introducing the Florida House report written by Speaker José R. Oliva warned that “national guidelines drive the [COVID-19 death] count up.” “CDC has determined that the death count should include persons with COVID even if COVID is not an underlying cause of death,” he wrote. In other …

Is the Holy Spirit raising up a river against the enemy?

There is a verse in Isaiah that states when the enemy comes in like a flood that the Lord will raise up a standard against this onslaught: When the enemy comes in like a flood,The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. (Isaiah 59:19 NKJ) However, blogger Kim Balogh believes that the comma has been put in the wrong place. She feels the verse should actually read this way: When the enemy comes in,like a flood the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. With this adjustment, the verse says that the Spirit of God will raise a rushing flood (lit. rushing river) against an invading adversary. She adds that the Hebrew word nûs (translated” lift up a standard” in the New King James) is better translated as fleeing or escaping. Using these two adjustments, Balogh believes that the verse should read “When the enemy shall come in, like a river the Spirit of God will make him flee.” And with the US being pummelled on every …

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.

COVID-19: Mainstream media and experts vs Florida

In an interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe at the end of March, Mike Barnicle suggested Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) made a huge mistake not following the advice of the experts and immediately issuing stay-at-home orders. Barnicle cited five states that did listen: Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Illinois and California: DeSantis eventually issued a lockdown order for Florida. However, it was nowhere near as stringent as the other states, because DeSantis believes in protecting people’s liberties. When it came to the lockdown, the Florida governor was one of the last to implement it, and one of the first to end it. So at the end of May, blogger Stacy McCain calculated the death rates per capita to see how badly Florida did, compared to those other expert-listening states. Here are McCain’s calculation of death rates per million for all those states in question: New York ………………………. 1,519Massachusetts ………………… 950Michigan ………………………… 534Illinois ……………………………. 400Florida …………………………… 108California ……………………….. 100 McCain writes: So, Florida’s death rate has been 93% lower than New York, 89% lower than Massachusetts, 80% …
