Yeah we are not going to agree on this. Overall, I can acknowledge some variance place to place on coutning covid deaths, but overall I think we have undercounted covid deaths in the pandemic, particularly at the start of the pandemic, and it was more undercounted in particular countries:You are truly a misinformation machine my friend. Even the CDC director said that at Covid deaths were overcounted mainly because of the perverse financial incentives involved:
There is monetary incentive for hospitals to report deaths as COVID-19 (C-19) even when the actual cause is not C-19. This type of inaccurate number reporting has also happened in the past with HIV/AIDs per CDC director.www.c-span.org
By the way, I know a lady who was denied an accidental death insurance claim when her husband's death was officially declared "covid" because he had a positive PCR test in the previous 30 days before his fatal car crash but he was completely healthy at the time of the accident. He died instantly at the scene. Do you want to tell her that this was a "head fake" and that her husband actually died from Covid and not the car crash?
All-Cause Excess Mortality and COVID-19–Related Mortality Among US Adults Aged 25-44 Years, March-July 2020
This study compares all-cause excess mortality and COVID-19–related mortality during the early pandemic period (March-July 2020) with unintentional drug overdoses, the usual leading cause of death in young adults, during the same period in 2018 among adults aged 25 to 44 years.
Following recent claims within the public health community that US COVID death counts are overestimates, Andrew Stokes and Dielle Lundberg present new excess mortality data in a commentary in The Conversation, revealing the opposite.
