N.Y. Times Admits COVID Deaths Overcounted by One-Third

'The official number is probably an exaggeration because includes some people who had virus when they died even though it was not the underlying cause of death...'

(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) The New York Times, after having previously denounced  the observation that U.S. COVID-19 deaths were systematically over-reported, finally admitted the truth in a recent article, but buried it in paragraph 17.

“The official number is probably an exaggeration because includes some people who had virus when they died even though it was not the underlying cause of death,” the paper confessed in the Monday morning “Newsletter” item titled “A Positive Covid Milestone.”

“Other C.D.C. data suggests that almost one-third of official recent Covid deaths have fallen into this category,” it added. “A study published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases came to similar conclusions.”

Although the mortality padding was widely recognized at the time from anecdotal reports about the inconsistent and overly broad standards being applied by medical officials, few were willing to acknowledge it.

Based on the fraudulent data, states including New York destroyed small businesses, encroached on civil liberties in an unprecedented manner, and locked many citizens in their homes, as noted by Breitbart columnist John Nolte.

In 2020, however, the “newspaper of record” attacked then-President Donald Trump and other skeptics for suggesting that COVID numbers were inflated by an over-diagnosis of the crisis.

In an article titled “Right-Wing Media Stars Mislead on Covid-19 Death Toll,” it even labeled the claim a “QAnon conspiracy theory,” while attempting to shame popular conservative radio host Mark Levin.

The article trotted out Anthony Fauci, the then-director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, to clarify the subtle distinction between truth and wild online fabulism.

“The point that the C.D.C. was trying to make was that a certain percentage of them had nothing else, but just Covid,” Fauci said. “That does not mean that someone who has hypertension or diabetes who dies of Covid didn’t die of Covid-19—they did.”
