I believe it is important to again review what the CDC and state governments are recording as “COVID deaths.” Despite having changed the way they record covid deaths early this year, it would seem they gravitated back to their old ways. This is evident when examining the CSTE case definition, under which Colorado government has been operating. By their own definition they are declaring any person who dies (for any reason) who died with a positive COVID test or was a probable or suspected COVID ‘victim’, they were labeled a COVID death.
So let’s do a quick recap of the numbers.
95.28% of reported COVID-19 deaths in Colorado are age 50 and over!
48.9% of reported COVID-19 deaths in Colorado come from long term care facilities!
The skewing of the facts in order to drive fear and panic among the population is beyond evident at this point. Would most business owners who lost everything because of the “pandemic” like to have known that half the reported deaths were coming from the chronically ill? As of November 30, 2020 more than 95% of Colorado deaths were over the age of 50. I think most business owners would have liked to have known that when Jared Polis ordered them to shut their doors. The reality of COVID-19 is that the same people who are susceptible to the seasonal flu, are susceptible to COVID-19.
Colorado is not the only state being misrepresented. Nearly half the states in the US have a COVID-19 death rate stemming primarily from long term care facilities. 39% is the current tally of US deaths which stemmed from long term care facilities and in-patient hospitals. Here are a few other states who are being devastated by tyrannical governors who have withheld this information from their residents.
