#1 By how much? Is it a question of hiding a needle in a haystack, or putting a straw in a box of needles?

#2 Isn't some of this overcounting based on CDC's very own guidance?

#6 CDC has four columns of COVID numbers. They do not seem to add up. Obviously, the following footnotes (3, 4, and 5) will clear it all up:

3Countsof deaths involving pneumonia include pneumonia deaths that aso involve COVID-19 and exclude pneumonia deaths involving influenza.

4Counts of deaths involving influenza include deaths with pneumonia or COVID-19 also listed as a cause of death.

5Deaths with confirmed or presumed COVID-19, pneumonia, or influenza, coded to ICD–10 codes U07.1 or J09–J18.9.


Aren't you glad they explained it for us?

#7 As a physician we make our best assessment as to what we believe the primary cause of death was, so don't drink the hand sanitizer.
