  • You are so very very wrong about the death numbers from CV. It does not take much effort to realize this. there are no excess deaths in the U.S.this year compared to last year or the year before. Even Johns Hopkins publicly stated that and they also stated that the deaths have been totally misrepresented. Also the CDC has stated that the deaths from COVID are really only 6% of the total. Also may of those who did die would not have dies if they got the correct treatment early enough that had been banned ( HCQ) or did not receive the wrong treatment ( redesimivir and or put on a ventilator). 97.2 of all who were vented died . You do a disservice to your readers with such implied nonsense. Follow the science. One death is too many but the majority of these deaths are not from CV19. Public policy is being guided by this type of misinformation and your piece today only adds to the misconception.

  • Sorry. The tests are biased toward false positives. Keep the con going. It tells everything.

  • See below. With a definition of a Covid death like this, the death toll can only be wildly exaggerated. The virus is real, but the hysteria is manufactured. Michael Ramirez ought to know this.
