The mainstream coronavirus narrative needed a shot in the arm, and Dr. Deborah Birx provided it.
Birx confirmed again yesterday that the Coronavirus Task Force is tallying all comorbid deaths as caused solely by COVID-19. That is, if a patient with one or more chronic diseases contracts the virus and dies, it will count toward the U.S. coronavirus fatality total.
Why is this statistic important? Because, as of Tuesday, of the 4,758 victims in New York, 4,089 had an underlying condition such as diabetes, hypertension, or coronary artery disease. That's 86% of the deaths in the epicenter state that are being attributed solely to the virus and not other life-threatening diseases present in patients.
It's breathtakingly cynical.
If a patient in the U.S. suffers a heart attack and dies, but he had also tested positive for the coronavirus, he would be counted as a COVID-19 death.
That news by itself might seem insignificant, a matter for wonks to debate, red meat for statisticians and medical professionals on chat boards. But on the heels of morbidity models that have failed, then collapsed, then burned down to rubble, the cause of death is crucial.
Four downward revisions later, gratitude is turning into rage: the cure is worse than the disease.
From a high end prediction of 2.2 million dead Americans to the current estimate of just over 60,000, how we account for causation could affect how we approach future outbreaks. The IMHE models, backed by Gates Foundation scientists and supported by the Gates-influenced World Health Organization, were responsible for the shuttering of our economy, and the subsequent loss of nearly 17 million jobs.
By the way, those are only the people who could get through to file a jobless claim on overwhelmed websites, phone lines, and brick-and-mortar service sites. True unemployment is likely much higher.
Further, 60,000 deaths is in fact "just the flu, bro." Yes, it's a bad flu, identical to the 2017-2018 season. But back to the comorbidity issue: 60,000 is an inflated number if every death, regardless of underlying conditions, is counted as COVID-19. In all likelihood, the true number is much lower.
So, once and for all, it's just the flu. Was it manmade? The UK government is looking into it, as are others. The mainstream media is hollering "No!" so conclude what you will. Regardless, predictions about its spread and lethality wrecked the global economy. And now Bill Gates wants you to get a shot he designed.
Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Birx are blatantly padding their numbers. In case the death total has to be revised down for a fifth time, expect to see even more squirming and dishonesty. Granted, it's good news when the numbers fall, but such a wild miss begs the question: who gets fired and globally shamed in perpetuity for so grossly misleading the public?
President Trump seems to have made up his mind not to rock the boat, at least not until calmer waters prevail. It's a wise decision. A medical emergency is a unique situation, with plenty of people in a state of panic. The outcry from the left would be an unwelcome national distraction.
In related news, the party accused of malfeasance that quickly resorts to cries of "racism!" is often the guilty one. For reference, see Jussie Smollett. Or look to "Doctor" Tedros Ghebreyesus, the Bill Gates-planted head of the WHO. He's not an MD. He has a PhD, which is nice, but one rather expects the head of a global health concern to have done some hard science, not merely defended his dissertation.
The Davos Man hath no shame.
The good fight isn't lost, however. Renowned virologist Didier Raoult, MD has published his third study, this one involving over 1,000 patients (since his first two were deemed "statistically insignificant"). The results are similarly impressive in demonstrating the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine (along with azithromycin) in the treatment of COVID-19.
The truth will out. Enough concerned citizens have learned and researched, fought their way past the blatant, greedy, and controlling lies of globalists. Bill Gates never expected to be questioned. Nor did the formerly untouchable WHO. Mainstream media never thought they'd lose their vice grip on public opinion shaping. Doctors Birx and Fauci were supposed to provide front-line cover fire.
Look at them all now, scrambling to pad death numbers, perversely hoping the tally will go higher.
Remember it well.

Problem is, if they under predicted, people would be outraged saying "how could the administration let this happen with so many dead!".
If you over predict people will be outraged saying "it's alarmist and damaged the economy!"
You just can't win, much like installing fire sprinkler suppression systems. No one wants to pay the upfront cost for something that may or may not happen. But the reality is that is better to air on the side of caution in case there really was a fire.
I love it how how suddenly, everyone in the US knows a virologist, someone high up in the CDC or a scientist who is providing inside information that looks suspiciously like The Daily Mail headlines.
You really cracked open the mystery here, shame no one in the rest of the world, who have been studying this at length, agrees with you.
