I've been making an argument on Facebook, that in my opinion, any death that occurs during this coronavirus pandemic, Covid-19 is being listed as the primary cause of death.
Officials are telling us to ignore any underlying conditions a patient may have. Statistically, it's an ingenious way of overhyping Covid-19 deaths and cause great amount of damage to our collective psyche.
As I have stated in other places, the world has an average mortality (rate of death) 55 million a year per year. It helps to keep this information in mind and not allow government officials to lead us astray.
According to the United Nations World Population Prospects report, approximately 7,452 people die every day in the United States. In other words, a person dies in the US approximately every 12 seconds. Going by this metric in 14 days in a normal year, that's 104,328 deaths. It's it a coincidence that matches the prediction by the Trump Task force?
Rush Limbaugh discussed a similar theme on his radio show today:
I have here from a source called worldometers.info or if you’re in Rio Linda, world-o-meters.info. Worldwide deaths, January 1st through March 25th of this year. Are you ready? Worldwide deaths from January 1st to March 25th, 2020, 21,000 deaths coronavirus. And that’s the low number. The lowest number of deaths, January 1st, March 25th, coronavirus. Now keep that number, 21,000 coronavirus deaths, and counting. We have to say “and counting.” Now, 113,000 deaths by seasonal flu, 228,000 deaths by malaria. Around the world, worldwide, worldwide. Not America. Worldwide.Let me start again. I know numbers are hard to follow on radio. I do it better than most because I am patient. This is January 1st through March 25th. So basically three months.Coronavirus, 21,000 deaths.
