For 3/4s Covid was incidental to their death.
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky acknowledged that over 75% of COVID deaths were people “who had at least four comorbidities” and were “unwell to begin with.”
Walensky made the remarks during an appearance on Good Morning America.
“The overwhelming number of deaths, over 75%, occurred in people who had at least four comorbidities,” said Walensky. “So really these are people who were unwell to begin with.”
The numbers, which other sources suggest could be even higher, once again emphasize how the vast majority of healthy people survive COVID, even in the higher age bracket.
This comes after a study conducted by top epidemiologist Professor John Ioannidis found that more than 95% of elderly people over the age of 70 survived COVID, with that number rising to 97.1% for those not in a care home. Whilst amongst people under the age of 20, the survival rate was 99.9987%.
The study used numbers from before the advent of mass vaccination programs.
Much of the scaremongering surrounding COVID that was utilised to justify lockdowns, mask rules and vaccine mandates was predicated on the myth that COVID was killing huge numbers of healthy people, it wasn't, and what is more, it never has or is ever likely to.
A poll conducted in summer 2020 found that on average, Americans thought 9 per cent of the population, around 30 million people, had died from coronavirus when the actual figure at the time was less than 155,000.
The truth is not what most people think.
