How many people has COVID killed? According to this, very few. When this was studied going clear back to Feb. of this year before COVID came to the US, the total death rate has basically stayed flat from week to week according the the CDC numbers. Yes, COVID deaths are now here as a cause of death but interestingly, the deaths from the top causes of deaths reported, heart disease, cancer, and every other category are way down from normal. In fact they are down in about the same numbers as we have reported in the COVID death category.

Yup. Excerpt.
“”All of this points to no evidence that COVID-19 created any excess deaths. Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers. We found no evidence to the contrary,” Briand concluded.”

I guess that explains why nearly everyone who dies of COVID has comorbidities.

There has to be an extra few hundred thousand they overlooked. Surely. This would mean that we did everything that we did for nothing. Or maybe that there was a reason that we did everything we did, but it had more to do with politics than preventing deaths.

If anyone wants to bother searching back thru the posts,-- I pointed this out about six months ago. I think I posted a link more recently to the CDC data on Excess Deaths-- 10% higher than normal for the first several months of the epidemic, now below normal for the past two--The Herd is being thinned. The limping elk that the wolves pick off were about to die anyway.

I'm not as dumb as I look....I couldn't be.

Why was Covid used to scam us and to scare us?

Could it be for the same reason Climate Change is being used to scam us, and to scare us?

What is the next scam? Did the covid scam have its desired effect?

Who has the power to scam the entire planet?

This article is absolutely correct. As an RN, I understand that while there are severe cases of this virus, nearly every single resulting death has a respiratory comorbidity of some kind. Since February, I've seen no severe cases of this virus and I've worked in several different facilities, having a fulltime position and multiple per diem positions. Our sister facility had 10 cases, all among the elderly and all recovered without hospitalization. What we have seen this year with these supposedly skyrocketing cases of COVID is an acute decline in deaths related to influenza, CHF, COPD, etc., which are normally the yearly leaders in respiratory related deaths. Last year this country had 1.5million cases of active TB, which will absolutely kill you without medical treatment which is upwards of $20K, but no national panic, no lockdowns, no mask mandates, no media saturation. Between Nov 16 and Nov 24, two of my uncles passed away on ventilators. Their death certificates will say COVID and many of my family members are living in fear with their blinders on, stating the same. The reality is that these two retired veterans completed multiple tours in Vietnam (infantry), and once retired from active duty in their late 30s, they went to work in steel foundries, quarries and smoked their entire lives. all of which resulted in permanent lung damage. While their deaths are tragic and very painful, facts remain facts. If anyone owns a bottle or spray can of Lysol that is over a year old, read the back. It will tell you that the product kills all viruses, listing them, including coronavirus. This virus is not new but like all viruses, it has changed. It wont go away and our immune systems will begin to recognize it and will be able to fight it. Like influenza, no vaccine will eradicate this virus...it's not a disease. Influenza vaccines are based upon the previous strain, which is why they remain 50% effective, at best, because the strains change...just as coronavirus has changed and is now call covid 19 (a scarier name). These state controlled lockdowns were a test to see how quickly Americans would do as they were told and give up their rights...it didn't take too long. If the projected new administration is inaugurated, they will usher in immediate nationwide lockdowns for 6 months (per Biden's covid taskforce leader) and with it they will enact Socialism...they're already attempting to do this in democrat controlled cities - encouraging people to turn in those who aren't complying with mask mandates, curfews, social distancing and lockdown. I distinctly remember a certain Nazi leader doing the same thing, also a democratic socialist. If these nationwide lockdowns are enacted, and enforced, we will emerge from the other side without our freedom and once freedom is lost, the only way to reclaim it is through bloodshed. We can only pray that it doesn't happen.

The devil comes to mind. Loves chaos, fear, panic and lies.
Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long years
Stole million man's soul an faith

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game


I stuck around St. Petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed Tsar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain

I rode a tank
Held a general's rank
When the blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank

Ah, what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah

Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails
Just call me Lucifer
'Cause I'm in need of some restraint

Editor’s Note: After The News-Letter published this article on Nov. 22, it was brought to our attention that our coverage of Genevieve Briand’s presentation “COVID-19 Deaths: A Look at U.S. Data” has been used to support dangerous inaccuracies that minimize the impact of the pandemic.
We decided on Nov. 26 to retract this article to stop the spread of misinformation, as we noted on social media. However, it is our responsibility as journalists to provide a historical record. We have chosen to take down the article from our website, but it is available
here as a PDF.
In accordance with our standards for transparency, we are sharing with our readers how we came to this decision.
The News-Letter is an editorially and financially independent, student-run publication. Our articles and content are not endorsed by the University or the School of Medicine, and our decision to retract this article was made independently.
Briand’s study should not be used exclusively in understanding the impact of COVID-19, but should be taken in context with the countless other data published by Hopkins, the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
As assistant director for the Master’s in Applied Economics program at Hopkins, Briand is neither a medical professional nor a disease researcher. At her talk, she herself stated that more research and data are needed to understand the effects of COVID-19 in the U.S.
Briand was quoted in the article as saying, “All of this points to no evidence that COVID-19 created any excess deaths. Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers.” This claim is incorrect and does not take into account the spike in raw death count
from all causes compared to previous years. According to the CDC, there have been almost 300,000 excess deaths due to COVID-19. Additionally, Briand presented data of total U.S. deaths in comparison to COVID-19-related deaths as a proportion percentage, which trivializes the repercussions of the pandemic. This evidence does not disprove the severity of COVID-19; an increase in excess deaths is not represented in these proportionalities because they are offered as percentages, not raw numbers.
Briand also claimed in her analysis that deaths due to heart diseases, respiratory diseases, influenza and pneumonia may be incorrectly categorized as COVID-19-related deaths. However, COVID-19
disproportionately affects those with preexisting conditions, so those with those underlying conditions are statistically more likely to be severely affected and die from the virus.
Because of these inaccuracies and our failure to provide additional information about the effects of COVID-19,
The News-Letter decided to retract this article. It is our duty as a publication to combat the spread of misinformation and to enhance our fact-checking process. We apologize to our readers.

What did you expect them to say if the paper did not support popular propaganda?
