Sunday, February 7, 2021

Mainstream media is reporting less about the drop in COVID-19 cases and moving the stage lights over to the number of deaths being attributed to COVID-19.

The death counts I share each day are a combination of deaths in which COVID-19 directly and and indirectly played a role in the death of an individual. The CDC has reported multiple times that just over 6 percent to 6.2 percent of the deaths that are being posted each day are a direct the result of COVID-19.

As many readers know, I recently was transported by ambulance to a local hospital emergency room and then subsequently spent three days in the hospital undergoing surgery for blood clots in both of my legs.  Three times during that experience, the hospital team was convinced that I was encountering COVID-19 and wanted to label my condition as COVID-19.

I received a total of three COVID-19 tests and each one came back negative. The condition I was experiencing was linked to an automobile accident 11 years ago that crushed both of my legs.

When you read of the 470,992 deaths directly and indirectly attributed to COVID-19 reported by mainstream media, remember that, according to the CDC, 29,202 — or 6.2 percent of those deaths — were actual deaths directly from COVID-19.

In the last two days, two in-home COVID-19 testing kits have been approved for use in the U.S.

The kits enable individuals to test themselves without the need to visit a healthcare provider or testing center.  Individuals transmit the reading on the testing device to the manufacturer and receive a read as to whether they tested negative or positive. It is up to the individual as to whether or not the results are shared with others.

It is unclear at present if the results will be forwarded to any tracking centers by the manufacturer.  It is possible that the processing centers will share the results with a tracking source, but not include the individual’s name.
