Yes This week the CDC quietly updated the Covid number to admit that only 6%
If you visit this link, you will find that the statistical analysis of Covid-19 death rates is pretty open to interpretation. According to the Center for Disease Control, only 6% of deaths could be directly related to COVID-19. The remainder included patients who had other underlying health conditions with an average of 2.6 conditions in addition to having contracted COVID-19. Studies have shown that COVID-19 does affect the respiratory system, but if somebody already suffers from respiratory distress, the virus is going to hit them much harder, potentially leading to further damage and, in some cases, death.
There are a number of underlying conditions listed beside the patients who were said to have died from COVID-19, including diabetes and heart problems. Having an underlying health condition increases the chances of complications and death when one contracts viruses like COVID-19, the flu, or even the common cold. While the pandemic is certainly not helping people who already suffer from health problems, this data shows that the statistics could be misleading. These people aren’t necessarily dying from the virus. If the virus didn’t exist then maybe a lot of these people could have made it another year or another decade. But we will never know that. It is a sad fact that this virus is essentially going around the globe and eliminating the weak and the sick. Natural selection at its cruelest.
As with anything Covid-related, this recent article by the Center for Disease Control has the potential to spark much debate. But, if medical professionals and disease experts want to comment or debuke claims like this, they have to be given access to this information and study it! I’m sure people have questions and opinions, but if we’re not allowed to share it, we’re never going to get the answers we want.
