It includes some quick math:
- Ignoring false positives and misdiagnoses, the U.S. has seen 6,212,174 cases.
- The official number of deaths due to COVID currently stands at 187,742
- The U.S. population is about 331,002,651
- This means that the percentage of the population diagnosed with the virus is about 1.9%
- The WHO estimates that around 20% of infected patients will require hospitalization
- This means that the number of hospitalized patient in the U.S. is roughly 1,242,434
- About 0.37% of the U.S. population needed hospitalization
- The vast majority (about 75%) of hospitalized patients do not require intensive care
- This means that about 0.09% of the U.S. population required intensive care
- That figure amounts to 9 in every 10,000
We’ve been told that COVID-19 is lethal. That it has killed nearly 200,000 Americans. That masks, social distancing, and the sudden shutdown of our economy are the only reason many more haven’t died. But there’s a big difference between dying FROM the virus and dying WITH the virus.
According to the CDC, only 6% of coronavirus deaths can be confirmed as having been caused by coronavirus. “For deaths with pre-existing conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death,” they say. (You can look at the official data here.)
So, for over 94% of reported deaths (the same deaths that have led to economic collapse and significant loss of life), there were almost 3 additional causes of death. People who have drowned, people with late-stage cancer, people involved in traffic collisions… ALL of these people we classified as COVID-19 deaths simply because they tested positive at the time of their death.

- Reporting is Faulty
- Tests Are Faulty
- Most Patients Are Not Contagious
