If you’ve been watching COVID-19 infection rates and deaths recently, you’ll know that they are not nearly what they once were in the United States. This, of course, is due in large part to the immunity people now have, whether they got one of the available vaccines or were infected with COVID and now have the antibodies to fight it.
However, you might have also noticed that in some areas such as Alameda and Santa Clara counties in California, the death rate has also been decreased because it was found that they were previously exaggerated, some by as much as 25 percent.
In Alameda County, for example, which is where both Oakley and Berkely are located, the previous COVID death toll was 1,634. On June 4, that number was decreased by a whopping 400 people, to 1,223.
According to KGO, “the 25% decrease was made to comply with the state’s definition of a COVID-19 death, which requires COVID-19 to be a direct or contributing factor or a situation in which it can’t be ruled out.”
Clearly, counties such as Alameda weren’t following this definition. Instead, they only needed a person to be currently infected with COVID at the time of death for it to count as a COVID death. And as Alameda County Health Department’s Neetu Balram wrote in a news release, this allowed residents of other causes, “like a car accident,” to be included in the list of COVID deaths.
Santa Clara County, home to some 1,927,470 individuals in San Jose and Silicon Valley, must have gone by a similar definition. It was reported that their death rates had also been greatly exaggerated, by about 22 percent, according to KPIX-TV.
The outlet noted that the county has now “refined its approach in reporting the data,” bringing the current death toll from 2,201 down to 1,696. If you missed that, that’s a drop of over 500 people in just one city…
As University of California San Francisco professor of medicine Dr. Monica Gandhi commented Friday, “It is important to go back and do this accounting to see if COVID was actually the cause of death. I think that transparent communication is an upside, I mean, the sense that it’s true that if we did this across the nation, it would bring our death rate lower.”
Now, you and I know that these death tolls have likely been exaggerated for months now. I mean, how else would the liberal government be able to get away with what they have in the past year without so much as a batted eyelash? The mask mandates, the lockdowns, the disastrous presidential election, even the vaccine “recommendations….”
If people weren’t scared enough to think that the government was actually protecting them, do you think anyone would be following these ridiculous orders? Hell no.
And as Gandhi says, the recent revelations of over exaggerations will soon have people saying “it wasn’t as serious as you said” and questioning the government, which is precisely what needs to happen.
We can get away with it now, at least to some degree. Could you have imagined someone, even someone as educated and respected as Gandhi coming out anytime last year and saying the same thing?
I mean, when people began questioning Washington Democratic Governor Jay Inslee’s death count, back in the early days of COVID, he suggested they were “fanning these conspiracy claims from the planet Pluto,” adding that it was “just disgusting what they’re trying to say of all these crazy deep-state malarkey.”
Inslee even suggested that COVID deaths in his state were being undercounted as a result. And yet, this is the same state that reported five deaths due to gunshot wounds as being COVID-related.
How much do you want to bet that if gunshot wounds were being ignored as a cause of death, other, less traumatic, and not as easily diagnosable, reasons such as pneumonia and the flu were getting overlooked? It’s not hard to imagine, is it?
And for what?
It was all so the political left could increase their power, wipe out our economy, and suppress our constitutional rights.
The bad news for them is that the truth is slowly but surely coming out. And it’s going to make more than few citizens not so keen on the Democratic Party…
