US reaches staggering milestone — 200,000 COVID-19 deaths

Jul 27, 2020
How many of those were people who died of other illnesses, but happened to have been "exposed" to Covid? Isn't it vitally important to know that in order to know the real fatalities associated with Covid?
It is just as likely that some Covid fatalities have not been counted for various reasons. There has been a push in some areas, and not just in the U.S., to minimize the actual threat, and that is best projected by influencing the news with questionable data. In the misinformation biz, this is known as counter-intelligence.

As quoted from the article:

"Data from the CDC show that there have been between 202,000 and 263,000 excess deaths in the U.S. since February, according to Bloomberg. Excess deaths refers to the number of deaths beyond what would be expected based on historical trends."

When someone is calling for less testing, it is to bring down the positive numbers, to make things look better than they really are. Of course this leads to a false sense of security - that everything is going to be just fine - which naturally leads to more infections. This is from the "less-data-is-better" school of thought.

The experts tell us to do a lot of testing and tracing to minimize the spread and bring this to an end. That is the "more-data-is-better" school of thought, and, incidentally comes from those experts who went to a number of schools and got Ph.D.s and M.D.s, or both. They think a lot, so their "school of thought" is much more rational and precise, and why it should be followed. These same experts have also been right about a lot of things in the past, which grants them considerable credibility.

It should be obvious that "more-data-is-better" is likely to hit the top of the charts in favorability ratings when the "best course of action" is to be considered.
