But but they said Joe Biden and Tony the Fauch (1 million for the fauch) COVID Vaccines and Boosters killed over 700,000. Well again after almost three years someone on the left admits the truth. It wasn't COVID killing these folks. So think of the billions spent on these vaccines. The thousands who died from the vaccine side effects. The millions who had side effects and got sick from the vaccines and boosters.
Wen begins: 'According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the United States is experiencing around 400 COVID deaths every day. At that rate, there would be nearly 150,000 deaths a year. But are these Americans dying from COVID or with COVID?'
Wen had the backing of two other infectious-disease experts who also believe that the number of deaths attributed to COVID is greater than the actual number of people dying from the virus.
She cites one expert, Robin Dretler, an attending physician at Emory Decatur Hospital, who estimates that at his hospital, 90% of patients diagnosed with COVID-19 are actually in the hospital for some other illness.
Dretler said that this contributes to imprecise reporting on COVID-19 deaths and hospitalizations, which he claims does not come from a place of bad intent.
'Since every hospitalized patient gets tested for COVID many are incidentally positive. If these patients die, COVID might get added to their death certificate along with the other diagnoses. But the coronavirus was not the primary contributor to their death and often played no role at all,' Dretler told Wen.
The doctor also cites another infectious-disease physician, Shira Doron, who found that in recent months, only about 30% of total hospitalizations with COVID-19 were primarily attributed to the virus in Massachusetts hospitals.
'During some days the proportion of those hospitalized because of COVID were as low as 10 percent of the total number reported' who had COVID.
