For well over a few months now we have been watching the COVID-19 Dashboard by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University scare map death ticker go up like a ticker on the gas pump at your local filling station filling up your car gas tank.
The number that we have all been asking for is how many people are dying of regular Pneumonia and Influenza during the Coronavirus pandemic? It seems that we know the exact death rates of COVID-19 deaths by the minute. For regular Flu, not so much. How can this be? Well, finally, we have some data from the CDC to look at from the Weekly U.S. Influenza Surveillance Report. Take a look at the following chart:
One can download the spreadsheet source CDC data to confirm this chart – click here. Is it not amazing that the regular Flu deaths have dropped like a rock starting at the beginning of February 2020? The dramatic diversion of regular Flu deaths vs. recent past years started at the same time the Coronavirus pandemic started. Hmmm … Where did all these deaths go? The 2019-2020 regular Flu season has been phenomenally great (fewer deaths) compared to the past six years. Has the world been cured of regular Flu?
There have been many reports coming in questioning the current COVID-19 death rates. Here and here are just a few examples. Here at Right Wire Report, we have as well called into question these numbers – see here and here. Are in fact COVID-19 deaths being grossly misrepresented? Whether the accounting of the statistical data is nefarious or not is yet another question. All this matters, as it is driving many major policy-making decisions by politicians.
Since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, 30 million have sought U.S. unemployment aid. If the current lockdowns continue much longer, we are looking at a global depression where for sure, the cure will be far worse than the pandemic. If the truth of the underlying data is not well understood it will have catastrophic results.
