CDC Admits COVID Mortality Rate in US is Half What Was Initially Projected

'The survey, led by the CDC, also indicates that about twice as many people have been infected with the virus as have been officially counted...'

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention appeared to have upwardly revised the number of people in the United States who had contracted the coronavirus to a total of around 39.7 million.

For those who may not realize it, that is good news.

The admission came as part of a study examining how close Americans might be to reaching herd immunity, the Gateway Pundit reported.

While much of the current emphasis has been on vaccines, contracting the virus and developing antibodies is also understood to confer natural immunity.

“Several large studies have shown that among individuals who are seropositive from prior SARS-CoV-2 infection, COVID-19 incidence is reduced by 80% to 95%, similar to vaccine efficacy estimates,” said the CDC.

The CDC study analyzed blood donations from all 50 states, working with 17 blood-collection organizations to test 1.4 million samples.

The researchers found that about 80% of the US population ages 16 and up had some form of immunity, although they hesitated to say that the country had reached the critical mass needed to declare herd immunity.

The big surprise, however, was the number they determined to have already contracted the virus.

“The survey, led by the CDC, also indicates that about twice as many people have been infected with the virus as have been officially counted,” wrote CNN.

Ironically, the left-wing propagandist network continued its efforts to spin the news against vax-resistant red states while burying the shock discovery.

From a scientific standpoint, however, the data may force rational people to re-evaluate the COVID panic-mongering if they haven’t already done so.

The US mortality rate of 1.6% falls below the global rate, which is slightly over 2%. That is a substantial difference from the rate of over 3% that was once hyped.

While it does not put COVID on par with the flu per se, it does give it a lower death rate for those over 50 than Hepatitis A, which has not led to widespread lock-downs, school closures and vaccine mandates.

The study will continue through December, although it cautioned that it did not account for the different variants, such as the delta variant, that are now being hyped to justify pushing vaccine booster shots.
