At the onset of the Wuhan virus the media and demorat politicians downplayed it because they were too busy with the Senate trial of the impeachment of President Trump.
In February Nancy Pelosi was out encouraging people to visit Chinatown to “end the discrimination” against Asian Americans after the outbreak of the Wuhan virus.
Mayor Bill de Blasio was encouraging the city’s residents in February to support Asian American businesses, declaring one of the city’s major Chinese neighborhoods “open for business” to counter racist fear-mongering about the new coronavirus.
Then the Senate trail came and went and #OrangeManBad was still in office. Time for the media and demorats to find another way to take down President Trump.
Lo and behold, the Wuhan virus all of a sudden was going to kill all of us!
But how much of what the media and demorats are feeding us is really true? I suspect YOU know the answer to that question.
Take a look at this little nugget of information that is NOT being reported by the media.
From the CDC web site, dated 8/26/20:
“Comorbidities: Table 3 shows the types of health conditions and contributing causes mentioned in conjunction with deaths involving coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death. The number of deaths with each condition or cause is shown for all deaths and by age groups.”
You can see all their data here.
So only 6% of the reported deaths (161,392) actually died from only the Wuhan virus. That is 9,683 deaths. The rest of the reported deaths had 2 or more pre-existing serious illnesses. This means that those without comorbidities have very low chance of dying.
What this means is that someone with Alzheimer’s, Sepsis and a Cardiac Arrest was counted in COVID-19 death totals just because they tested positive. Even if they showed no symptoms of COVID or even if it was a “false positive.” 9,684 deaths is 0.16% of “confirmed” COVID cases.

And look at the miniscule percentage of deaths for the school-age children. Why are many schools still closed?
I’m no “medical expert” nor a bureaucrat yet I can see that there has been a lot of manipulation in the media and politically-driven fearmongering with this virus. There’s also the fact that hospitals and testing companies receive more money when tests are positive and cases are confirmed.
No wonder no one trust the media nor the numbers surrounding the Wuhan virus infections and deaths.
PS: Just saw this last night: “NYT: Up to 90% of people who test positive for COVID-19 are no longer contagious and don’t need to isolate.”
From the Twitchy story: “We may have been testing the wrong way.”
Great job, medical “experts!”
