New Report From CDC Shows That 94% of all Covid Deaths in U.S. Had Underlying Medical Conditions

the CDC quietly updated the Covid-19 death numbers which show only 6% of all Covid deaths had no underlying medical conditions.


The CDC has quietly admitted to the fact that only 6% of the 161,392 Covid deaths were listed as Covid-19 only.

That means 94% of all reported deaths had other underlying medical conditions.

That’s a very big discrepancy, and definitely lends some credence to the possibility that the disease mortality rate has been miscalculated from the very beginning.

Unfortunately, there have been so many mistakes and discrepancies related to the coronovirus since this whole mess started to spiral out of control earlier this year, so it’s very hard to trust anything the CDC says. 

NBC 25 News has more on the new information provided:

The Centers for Disease Control released information showing how many people who died from COVID-19 had underlying medical conditions or underlying conditions as they are sometimes referred to by doctors that attributed to their death.

According to the CDC, comorbidity is defined as: more than one disease or condition is present in the same person at the same time. Conditions described as comorbidities are often chronic or long-term conditions. Other names to describe comorbid conditions are coexisting or co-occurring conditions and sometimes also “multimorbidity” or “multiple chronic conditions."

Comorbidity and underlying conditions can both be used to describe conditions that exist in one person at the same time. These can also contribute to a persons death who has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

The CDC said:

Table 3 shows the types of health conditions and contributing causes mentioned in conjunction with deaths involving coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). 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 CDC says people need to always social distance and perform best practices when it comes to staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The following are the top underlying medical conditions linked with COVID-19 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

According to the CDC 9683 died in the United States with only having COVID-19 listed on their death certificate.

This is just the latest round of confusing new details surrounding Covid-19.

The CDC can't seem to make up it's own mind on this disease.

Fox 8 with more on this interesting turn of events:

The CDC explains that their data uses provisional death counts to “deliver the most complete and accurate picture of lives lost to COVID-19.”

These numbers are based on death certificates, which the organization says are the most reliable source of data. Death certificates reportedly contain information that is not available anywhere else and includes comorbid conditions, race and ethnicity, and place of death.

The CDC says provisional death counts may not match counts from other sources, such as numbers from county health departments, because death certificates take time to be completed, states report at different rates, it takes officials extra time to code COVID-19 deaths, and because other reporting systems use different definitions or methods for counting deaths.

The organization adds that provisional data is not yet complete, provisional counts are not final and are subject to change, and that death counts should not be compared across states.

Unfortunately, this only leaves the rest of us with more burning questions rather than less.

What is really going on with this virus?

Was it ever as bad as it was portrayed to be?

Has this been exaggerated for political gain since the beginning?
