Lockdowns have drastic consequences. Small businesses are closing for good at an alarming rate. Almost 100,000 were gone for good as of September, according to a Yelp survey. The impact on children and young adults is also enormous. So are there a significant increase in deaths this year due to COVID?
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released new data last week that depicts how many Americans that died from COVID-19 also had other contributing conditions and that number is huge. Only 6% of all deaths were solely as a cause of COVID, that’s less than 10k people in the US.
From CDC data, 2020 has the lowest weekly death rate in a decade so far. So why all the fuss about a pandemic?
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Robert Redfield admitted last week that American hospitals may have monetary incentive to inflate coronavirus deaths.
