The CDC lists comorbidities for COVID-19 deaths on its website. In the Spring, readers were quick to notice that about 100,000 deaths from COVID-19 also involve pneumonia or the flu. This is still the case, and the rest of the comorbidities deserve a closer look.
According to the CDC, as of today, 124,310 people who died with COVID also died with either pneumonia or the flu. Of all COVID deaths this year, 177,000 carried comorbidity from the respiratory family, meaning the person also had adult respiratory failure, respiratory distress, COPD, or otherwise. Which ailment killed those individuals? That’s not for the CDC…or you, to determine.
It’s helpful to examine comorbidities that are easier to discern than respiratory illnesses. Of all COVID deaths this year, 196,000 people who allegedly died of COVID-19 also had heart disease, ranging from hypertension to heart failure. Overall, at least 32,398 COVID-19 deaths also carried the diagnosis of cardiac arrest. Additionally, 20,631 deaths included heart failure. Which was the killer, a heart attack, or COVID-19? Again, that’s not for you, or the CDC, to determine.
Malignant neoplasms (cancer) accounted for 13,903 COVID-19 deaths, renal failure deaths equal 25,977, and Alzheimer’s and dementia account for 44,000 total COVID-19 deaths. Obesity is listed as major comorbidity for 10,828 COVID-19 deaths, and diabetes 46,033 deaths.
Intentional and unintentional injury, poisoning, and other adverse events comprise 10,479 COVID-19 deaths. These deaths include cocaine overdoses, motorcycle accidents, and gunshot wounds. Adding up all of these serious comorbidities equals 178,272 deaths with COVID-19 that included a diagnosis more serious than COVID-19, a diagnosis that would be considered by rational physicians to be the cause of death.
Then, the CDC lumps “all other causes” in comorbidities in one category, “all other conditions,” which totals 152,400. Closer examination of the diagnosis codes lumped into the other category include:
A00–A39: bacterial diseases like meningococcal infection, tuberculosis.
A42–B99, bacterial and parasitic infections like actinomycosis, HIV.
D00–E07, thyroid disorders, oral cancers, goiter
E15–E64, endocrine disorders, hypoglycemic coma
E70–E90, endocrine, nutritional, metabolic diseases
G31–H95, other diseases of the nervous system
K00–K93, diseases of the digestive system, like hernia and appendicitis
L00–M99, dysfunction of lumbar region
N00–N16, Renal tubulo-interstitial diseases
N20–N99, Diseases of the genitourinary system, like kidney stones
O00–O99, conditions and diseases related to pregnancy
F00, F02, F04–G26, Mental and behavioural disorders, including those caused by substance abuse
P00–P96, Certain Conditions Originating In Perinatal Period, including birth trauma and conditions caused by shortened perinatal period
Q00–Q99, Congenital malformations, deformations and chromosomal abnormalities.
R10–R99 symptoms, signs and abnormal clinical and laboratory findings, not elsewhere classified.
If a newborn baby is born without his intestines, but he “tests positive for COVID-19 and then dies, then he is a COVID death. If a 98-year-old woman died of meningitis, she’s a COVID death.
The CDC has lumped all COVID-19 deaths, deaths by a heart attack, birth defects, gunshot wounds, and kidney failure all into the same category…COVID-19 death. Since the CDC has never, in the history of the CDC, described heart attacks as flu deaths or lumped any other diseases together in such dishonest reporting, we have separated the comorbidities out from this list that would kill an individual before COVID-19, assuming confounding diagnoses.
- Heart attack/heart failure 53,029
- All other circulatory disease- 143,793
- Sepsis 26,354
- Renal failure 25,977
- Injury, poisoning, adverse event- 10,479
- Malignant cancer- 13,903
- Alzheimer’s or dementia- 43,011
- Diabetes 46,033
- Other serious-152,400
The list of “other diagnoses” is impossible to categorize because the CDC has not broken out each illness into numbers of deaths. However, if the total of the serious comingling diagnoses codes (above), 362,579 is added to the number of individuals who the CDC says have influenza or pneumonia in addition to (or instead of) COVID-19, 124,310 people, the total number is 486,889. The total number of “other” comorbidities is 152,400, bringing total serious comorbidity cases it COVID-19 deaths to 639,289.
285,078 people have allegedly died of COVID-19 this year, but the CDC hasn’t distinguished comorbidities per individual. The average COVID-19 decedent carries 2.9 comorbidities. Averaging 2.9 conditions per person, the total number of deaths from the CDC’s list is 220,444 people. Adding in respiratory conditions (478,948) would put the number of serious comorbidity deaths with a 2.9 per person average above the total number of COVID-19 deaths at 385,598 people.
Since the USA has not experienced any excess deaths this year compared to 2018 and 2019, and COVID-19 deaths are now coded as PIC, short for pneumonia, influenza, or COVID, the numbers don’t point to a pandemic. Instead, all available data points to nothing more than a bad flu season.
