STUNNING CDC ADMISSION: 75% of COVID-19 deaths “had four or more comorbidities”
(NaturalHealth365) The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), hospital systems, and doctors are finally talking about the difference between dying with COVID and dying of COVID. This distinction wasn’t made for nearly two years – but officials didn’t shy away from using inconclusive reports of “COVID deaths” and cases as justification for harmful lockdowns.
But now the mainstream narrative appears to be shifting dramatically, with officials finally admitting that being COVID-positive at the time of death is not necessarily proof that COVID was the cause of death and that comorbidities must be acknowledged.
Chronically unwell people significantly more likely to die with COVID-19 – but only NOW the CDC acknowledges this important and obvious reality
CDC director Rochelle Walensky recently said on public television that “the overwhelming number of [COVID] deaths, over 75%, occurred in people who had at least four comorbidities.”
While she was citing a study that referred specifically to jabbed people who had contracted COVID-19 and passed away, it’s not hard to infer that unvaxxed individuals with multiple comorbidities are also at increased risk of death – with or without COVID.
Of course, this admission from the CDC isn’t surprising to anyone who has exercised critical thinking during the pandemic … but it does make one wonder: what else are officials suppressing or lying about?
Followers of mainstream media quickly defend these shifting narratives and admissions from U.S. officials by saying that messages change because “the science changes.” The problem with this argument is that it ignores the reality that thousands of people – including highly accredited doctors and researchers from around the world – have been silenced for making these points all along.
Here are other inconsistencies we’ve seen throughout the pandemic
Admitting that COVID-positive deaths do not necessarily mean deaths due to COVID is a huge shift from mainstream messaging. And as of February 2, 2022, hospitals will no longer be required to report the number of daily COVID-positive deaths to the federal government, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). That’s a huge change, especially considering that COVID deaths were blasted all over the news screens for months in an attempt to drive fear and garner support for lockdowns.
Other facts that U.S. officials and mainstream media now seem suddenly willing to report:
- PCR tests are inaccurate, and people can test positive for COVID-19 for up to 12 weeks after recovering from an infection
- Most masks are ineffective
- The COVID shots themselves – originally sold to the public as a necessity to “stop transmission” and “end the pandemic” – are actually not able to stop viral transmission for millions of people, and are dramatically less effective than Pharma-funded trial data originally suggested
These are the comorbidities associated with severe COVID-19
In case you were wondering, comorbidities simply mean that a patient has more than one chronic health condition. According to the CDC, current meta-analyses and systematic reviews suggest that the following health conditions or comorbidities are associated with a higher risk of severe COVID-19 illness:
- Cerebrovascular disease
- Chronic kidney disease
- Chronic lung diseases including COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), pulmonary embolism, pulmonary hypertension, and interstitial lung disease
- Chronic liver diseases including cirrhosis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), alcoholic liver disease, and autoimmune hepatitis
- Type 1 and 2 diabetes
- Heart conditions including heart failure, coronary artery disease, and cardiomyopathy
- Mental health disorders including depression and other mood disorders and schizophrenia
- Obesity (which the CDC defines as a BMI ≥30 kg/m2)
- Pregnancy and recent pregnancy
- Active and former smoking
Other health conditions, including HIV, Down syndrome, dementia, and substance use disorders, have more limited evidence connecting them to an increased risk of severe COVID-19 illness, and research is ultimately ongoing. However, the underlying message is clear: if someone is chronically unhealthy, they are significantly more at risk of a severe or fatal case of COVID-19.
But remember: just because someone has COVID at the time of their death doesn’t prove that COVID was the actual cause of death – and the fact that the CDC and other officials suddenly seem so willing to discuss this now is suspect.
No clear word yet on whether people who were banned for saying similar things last year on social media will be re-platformed.
