Colorado revises down the number of Wuhan virus deaths

Surprise, surprise, surprise!

From Fox News: Colorado has made a stunning and significant change to the way it counts COVID-19 deaths that reduced the statewide figure from more than 1,000 to 878, according to a report.

The change came after Colorado’s Department of Public Health admitted that its COVID-19 death toll was counting those who tested positive for the coronavirus but had died of other causes, Fox 31 Denver reported late Friday.

The department now says 1,150 Coloradoans who died had COVID-19 but only 878 of those deaths were “due to” COVID-19.

“We have been reporting at the state, deaths among people who had COVID-19 at the time of death and the cause of that death may or may not have been COVID-19,” Dr. Eric France, the health department’s chief medical officer told the station.

“We started to hear stories about ‘are these correct or are these incorrect?’” France said.

I’d like to know WHY they were misrepresenting COVID death numbers that way? I’m betting some State politician trying to win favor from a FEDERAL Politician was leaning on ’em to “tow the party line”,and they finally decided,”Screw this-We’re NOT gonna lie to Americans on this anymore.” That was too much a contrived “mistake”,something a Democrat would do

Why? Sen. Scott Jensen, R-Minn., a physician in Minnesota, was interviewed by “The Ingraham Angle” host Laura Ingraham on April 8 on Fox News and claimed hospitals get paid more if Medicare patients are listed as having COVID-19 and get three times as much money if they need a ventilator. “How can anyone not believe that increasing the number of COVID-19 deaths may create an avenue for states to receive a larger portion of federal dollars. Already some states are complaining that they are not getting enough of the CARES Act dollars because they are having significantly more proportional COVID-19… Read more »

I heard Medicare gives hospitals 13,000 bucks for each case they have.

At least they did it. How many other states will? Also, how many other states will do the opposite? Dr. France shall get no Christmas card from Dr. Fauci this year.

I’m surprised they admitted it. Wolf is on the way out, this is why he doesn’t care what he does. He’s done his damage, just like all the other sleazy governors we’ve had.

They can’t even count the deaths correctly, but we should just trust them about the vaccine they will make? Don’t people know about Vaccine Court, which has awarded billions to victims of vaccine damage? It’s the only recourse if one is damaged or killed by a vaccine because nobody can sue the vaccine makers if they die from the vaccine.
