“The head of England’s National Health Service has been accused of ‘abusing’ Covid statistics for claiming that 14 times as many infected patients are in hospital in the country compared to last year. In reality, the true number is LOWER than in 2020.” [Source: dailymail.co.uk]
Many people have long been suspicious that Covid statistics are being inflated. In considering this we are not suggesting that the coronavirus isn’t dangerous. It is dangerous, but only to people with weakened immune systems. Nevertheless, questions are increasingly being asked regarding whether, in order to frighten the world into accepting experimental pharmaceutical vaccines, aspects of the global COVID-19 statistics could potentially have been exaggerated.
Physicians in the United States have reported pressure to list COVID-19 on death certificates, for example, even in cases where the virus appears to bear no relation to the victim’s cause of death. The New York Times has noted that New York City’s death toll includes people who were “presumed to have died of the coronavirus but had never tested positive.”
Analysis of the COVID-19 global death toll is further complicated by the fact that countries use different methods when counting coronavirus fatalities. Some countries only include deaths where the deceased had a prior positive coronavirus test result, while others also include those where there is merely clinical suspicion of COVID-19. Speaking to the UK’s Daily Telegraph newspaper in March 2020, Professor Walter Ricciardi, scientific advisor to Italy’s minister of health, described how people dying in Italian hospitals with the virus were all deemed to be dying of the virus. Such an approach will inevitably result in a higher recorded death toll than would otherwise be the case.
