I work in the healthcare field. Here's the problem, we are testing people for any strain of a Coronavirus. Not specifically for COVID-19. There are no reliable tests for a specific COVID-19 virus. There are no reliable agencies or media outlets for reporting numbers of actual COVID-19 virus cases. This needs to be addressed first and foremost. Every action and reaction to COVID-19 is based on totally flawed data and we simply can not make accurate assessments.
12bytes says: This confirms what i've been hearing from non-anonymous sources; that the RT-PCR "test" (it is not a test), will yield a "positive" result (PCR does not produce a binary result) for any corona virus. This means that, if you've had the common cold virus, which is a coronavirus, that you can "test positive" for the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Newly published CDC data shows that coronavirus is NOT as deadly as we originally thought; Survival rate for adults is 99.98%, fatality rate is 0.007% | Tech News | Startups News
The questions many are still asking are: Just how deadly is the coronavirus? Who are the most vulnerable and why? To answer some of these questions, in late August, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published its findings of the survival rates for COVID-19 and its controversial provisional death counts. According to the CDC stats, 94% of all coronavirus deaths, on average, have 2 or more pre-existing conditions or causes per death or co-morbidities.
Below is a quick summary of the CDC COVID-19 Survival Rates.
Age 0-19 — 99.997%
Age 20-49 — 99.98%
Age 50-69 — 99.5%
Age 70+ — 94.6%
Below is Infection Fatality Ratio for Scenario 5: Current Best Estimate
Age 0-19 years: 0.00003
Age 20-49 years: 0.0002
Age 50-69 years: 0.005
Age 70+ years: 0.054
Chief Science Officer for Pfizer Says "Second Wave" Faked on False-Positive COVID Tests, "Pandemic Is Over" - Global Research
In a stunning development, a former Chief Science Officer for the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer says "there is no science to suggest a second wave should happen." The "Big Pharma" insider asserts that false positive results from inherently unreliable COVID tests are being used to manufacture a "second wave" based on "new cases."
Dr. Mike Yeadon, a former Vice President and Chief Science Officer for Pfizer for 16 years, says that half or even "almost all" of tests for COVID are false positives. Dr. Yeadon also argues that the threshold for herd immunity may be much lower than previously thought, and may have been reached in many countries already.
(altCen Ed. note, video removed within hours of being posted: archive.is/F1m6B) | Two insiders have recently emerged to give a shocking view behind the scenes of the ongoing Covid narrative. A former chief science officer at pharma giant Pfizer and a former official at the CDC have both come forward with shocking tales of fraud and falsification. Also today, US support for a Covid vaccine continues to plummet based on recent polls. More good news out of Pennsylvania.
Coronavirus Testing Suspended at Boston Lab After Many False Positive Results - The Vaccine Reaction
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) has suspended testing for the SARS-CoV-2 virus at Boston based laboratory on Aug. 8, 2020 after the laboratory reported almost 400 false positive tests.1
Orig3n Laboratory, a genetics and biotechnology company was suspended after state health officials became aware of an unusually high number of positive SARS-CoV-2 tests reported by the laboratory. An investigation found that there were at least 383 inaccurate positive results that were retested and came back as negative.2 Orig3n Laboratory has approximately sixty nursing homes as their customers.3
A virologist who fled China after studying the early outbreak of COVID-19 has published a new report claiming the coronavirus likely came from a lab. Doctor Li-Meng Yan, a scientist who studied some of the available data on COVID-19 has published her claims on Zenodo, an open access digital platform. She wrote that she believed COVID-19 could have been "conveniently created" within a lab setting over a period of just six months, and "SARS-CoV-2 shows biological characteristics that are inconsistent with a naturally occurring, zoonotic virus".
12bytes says: There is indeed evidence which seems to be strong and creditable that corroborates Li-Meng Yan's claim that the SARS-CoV-2 virus was engineered. Some of that evidence can be found in these pages. Whether the virus was released intentionally cannot be proven at this time to my knowledge, but again, there is a great deal of compelling circumstantial evidence to suggest it was (this can also be found in these pages). What has been left out of the testimony by Li-Meng Yan however, is the fact that the U.S. funded the research of coronavirus in the Wuhan lab which raises the question as to Yan's intensions and whether her testimony is being used to demonize China for political reasons while absolving the role which the U.S. played.
Today on Questions For Corbett, Corbett Report member Scott asks about a potential flu vaccine / COVID link. James demonstrates how even the mainstream science shows that such a correlation does exist, although it isn't being trumpeted in the Big Pharma-funded corporate media.
Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation of Its Probable Synthetic Route | Zenodo
SARS-CoV-2 shows biological characteristics that are inconsistent with a naturally occurring, zoonotic virus. In this report, we describe the genomic, structural, medical, and literature evidence, which, when considered together, strongly contradicts the natural origin theory. The evidence shows that SARS-CoV-2 should be a laboratory product created by using bat coronaviruses ZC45 and/or ZXC21 as a template and/or backbone. Building upon the evidence, we further postulate a synthetic route for SARS-CoV-2, demonstrating that the laboratory-creation of this coronavirus is convenient and can be accomplished in approximately six months. Our work emphasizes the need for an independent investigation into the relevant research laboratories. It also argues for a critical look into certain recently published data, which, albeit problematic, was used to support and claim a natural origin of SARS-CoV-2. From a public health perspective, these actions are necessary as knowledge of the origin of SARS-CoV-2 and of how the virus entered the human population are of pivotal importance in the fundamental control of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as in preventing similar, future pandemics.
Chinese Virologist Claims She Will Be Publishing Evidence Proving COVID-19 Is Manmade – Collective Evolution
Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese virologist and whistleblower, claims she will soon be publishing proof that COVID-19 was manmade. She believes her evidence will be so clear that even non-scientists will be able to verify the data. Previously, Dr. Yan has said that the Chinese government and the World Health Organization knew about person-to-person transmission of COVID-19 much earlier than reported. She fled China to the US to continue exploring her research.
The WHO-commissioned meta-study on the effectiveness of facemasks, published in the medical journal The Lancet in June 2020, has been instrumental in shifting global facemask policies during the Covid-19 pandemic. However, the meta-study, which claimed a risk reduction of 80% with facemasks, is seriously flawed on several levels and should be retracted.
On this episode of Objective:Health we talk to Professor Denis Rancourt, author of over 100 scientific research papers in the diverse areas of physics, chemistry, geology, materials science, soil science, and environmental science. Dr. Rancourt has made fundamental scientific discoveries in the areas of environmental science, measurement science, soil science, bio-geochemistry, theoretical physics, alloy physics, magnetism, and planetary science.
Recently Dr. Rancourt has turned his attention to the science behind the Covid fiasco. He speaks to us today about his recent research and what he's been able to dig up looking into the all-cause mortality figures. His conclusions are rather stunning!
He also talks about what the research says about masks (spoiler alert: they don't work), and ties the entire Covid episode to geopolitics and the ongoing gloablist agenda.
Belarusian President Claims IMF & World Bank Offered him a Bribe to Impose COVID Restrictions | Armstrong Economics
Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said last month via Belarusian Telegraph Agency, BelTA., that World Bank and IMF offered him a bribe of $940 million USD in the form of "Covid Relief Aid." In exchange for $940 million USD, the World Bank and IMF demanded that the President of Belarus:
* imposed "extreme lockdown on his people"
* force them to wear face masks
* impose very strict curfews
* impose a police state
* crash the economy
EXCLUSIVE: Covid Vaccine Patent Warned of "Deliberate Coronavirus Release" 9 Month's Before COVID-19
Newly unearthed documents from Moderna Pharmaceuticals Covid patent application include a claim of concern about a "deliberate release of SARS coronavirus" 9 months before the official emergence of Covid-19. In addition, it turns out that Moderna may not have the legal right to even release its vaccine in the next few weeks because the company appears to be infringing on an existing patent for the core technology. Is this why Moderna's executives are selling their stock?
Lockdowns and hygienic measures around the world are based on numbers of cases and mortality rates created by the so-called SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR tests used to identify "positive" patients, whereby "positive" is usually equated with "infected." But looking closely at the facts, the conclusion is that these PCR tests are meaningless as a diagnostic tool to determine an alleged infection by a supposedly new virus called SARS-CoV-2.
Imagine going to a doctor suspecting you may have a serious illness and being told that there are 2 tests available. With the first test, a swab, they do not know, should you record a positive result, whether or not you have the disease. With the second test, a blood test, they know for certain that the test is of no value in detecting the disease.
Would a patient find that situation satisfactory? Obviously not.
Yet that is exactly what the Australian government is admitting is the situation with its coronavirus testing. It is on the Therapeutics Goods Administration web site for "health professionals":
"The extent to which a positive PCR result correlates with the infectious state of an individual is still being determined."
"There is limited evidence available to assess the accuracy and clinical utility of available COVID-19 tests."
Treat Hand Gels As Last Resort Or Risk Superbug 'Armageddon', Global Expert Warns – Dr. Rath Health Foundation
Speaking to the Daily Express newspaper in the UK, the expert concerned, Dr Andrew Kemp, head of the Scientific Advisory Board on the British Institute of Cleaning Science, warns that overuse of hand gels could allow some bacteria to develop immunity to them. While stressing the importance of good hygiene and thorough hand washing, Kemp explained that even the most potent alcohol-based sanitizers cannot destroy every single bug. Those with resistance that manage to survive are therefore able to multiply. The potential problem Kemp describes is thus similar to that already caused by the overuse of antibiotic drugs, which for some years now has been contributing to the rise of so-called 'superbug' infections.
Technocrats Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx are likely hopping mad because they have lost control over the pandemic narrative in America. Fauci's replacement, Dr. Scott Atlas, promotes a very different approach to healing America, including herd immunity.
Todd Herman welcomes the Ethical Skeptic, a respected independent data analyst talking about the panic behind the shutdowns, and the real numbers. Additionally, the irresponsibility of news organizations that contributed to the spread of misinformation to a population at risk.
Why does covid-19 appear to be a somewhat strange pandemic? It is because of the covid-19 mortality profile, which is almost identical to natural mortality.
To better understand this crucial point, we first look at two other well-known pandemics: the 2009 swine flu "fake pandemic" and the notorious 1918 "Spanish flu" pandemic.
The 2009 swine flu was a "fake pandemic" because in reality it was a rather mild flu that caused few deaths globally. It was labeled a "pandemic" in June 2009 only because the WHO had removed the requirement of "enormous numbers of death and illness" one month before. The pandemic warning then triggered a multi-billion dollar sale of rather useless and partially dangerous vaccines.
The 2009 swine flu strain was mild because it was somewhat similar to a flu virus strain that had circulated prior to the 1957 Asian flu pandemic. This meant that most people over 60 years – the main risk group – had already developed immunity against the new virus. And the virus simply wasn't dangerous enough to seriously threaten many people younger than 60 years.
The 1918 "Spanish flu" virus, on the other hand, was a very dangerous virus that had a very different mortality profile. In addition to old people, it also killed babies and young children plus young adults between 20 and 45 years at very high rates (see chart at the bottom).
In contrast, the mortality profile of the covid-19 coronavirus is essentially zero for children and young adults and near zero below 50, before it begins to rise slowly and then very steeply above 70 and especially above 80, reaching extreme levels in nursing homes.
Thus the covid-19 mortality profile is almost identical to natural mortality. This doesn't mean that covid-19 doesn't increase someone's risk of death – it absolutely does – but this increase is proportional to the pre-existing risk of death of the respective age and risk group.
At 79 years old, Dr. Anthony Fauci — who has served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984 — has yet to come out with the "Big One" — a vaccine or infectious disease treatment that will allow him to retire with a victory under his belt.
He failed to create a successful vaccine for AIDS, SARS, MERS and Ebola. A COVID-19 vaccine is essentially his last chance to go out in a blaze of glory. As evidenced by his history, he will stop at nothing to protect Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine and Gilead's antiviral Remdesivir.
He even threw tried and true pandemic protocols out the window when COVID-19 hit, turning into an unquestioning spokesman for draconian liberty-stripping measures instead. To echo a question asked by Dr. Sal Martingano in his article,1 "Dr. Fauci: 'Expert' or Co-Conspirator," why are we not questioning this so-called expert?
Fauci 'Has Been Wrong About Everything'
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, operating under the US Department of Health and Human Services, has asserted jurisdiction over private residential leases nationwide. It intends to curtail evictions until at least the end of the year, and in fact its new directive threatens federal criminal penalties against landlords who ignore tenant "declarations" made using CDC forms.
It is unclear, to put it mildly, exactly how this jurisdiction over private contracts and state/local courts flows even to Congress, much less an administrative agency acting on its own. One federal official justifies the bizarre and legally dubious action based on the CDC's broad charter to stop the spread of communicable diseases—a charter at which they've failed miserably with covid:
Pregnant Victorian woman arrested in front of children, charged with 'incitement' after organizing anti-lockdown protest
Nancy Pelosi caught on video violating COVID rules at hair salon that was supposed to be CLOSED – The Right Scoop
Nancy Pelosi has been caught violating COVID regulations by the governor, including not wearing a mask WHILE getting her hair done in a CLOSED hair salon that no one else in San Francisco can use because of the coronavirus:
Apple and Google power almost every smart phone on earth and now they have jointly agreed to build a full contact tracing app into their core operating systems. This means that an Android phone can 'rat' on an iPhone, and vice versa. The door is now wide open for a ubiquitous global command and control system for every person on earth.
Last May, both Google and Apple rolled out changes to their core operating system that included hooks for App developers to build tracing apps. App developers are now summarily excluded from this market. Furthermore, both software giants are collaborating with governments to activate the software within states and regions.
A Delta flight from Detroit turned around after some passengers removed their masks and then refused to put them back on. It has now created a "no-fly list" for such cantankerous travelers who will not be allowed on any Delta flight in the future. Will refusing to wear a face mask soon be equated to terrorism?
We take a look at the millions of protesters marching in Berlin and London over the weekend and we break down the numbers from CDC that appear to show that only 6% of C0VlD deaths are actually not from C0VlD– it turns out that is not quite true. I'll explain.
Canadian Media Disinformation, Touts COVID "Compliance" Instead of "Science". Face Masks, Social Distancing, Why are People Protesting - Global Research
The CBC (the Canadian Brainwashing Corporation) published an article about Saturday's lockdown protest in Ottawa. It heralds with this ironic deck: "Online misinformation about pandemic safety measures thriving." Ironic, because CBC's website has been one of the most abhorrent purveyor of misinformation regarding the COVID-19 "pandemic."
States are finally retracting bans on HCQ.
States are finally retracting bans on HCQ.
These bans were put in place based on fraudulent studies, many of which have since been debunked or retracted.
There should be NO ban on HCQ. It should be treated the same as it always has been: a decision between doctor and patient.
Big Pharma's Man at FDA to Approve Coronavirus Vaccine Before Clinical Trials Completed? - Global Research
At times, meds are more dangerous than diseases they're supposed to protect against or cure.
Independent experts agree that all vaccines are hazardous to human health because they contain mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol (antifreeze), and other toxins able to weaken and potentially destroy the human immune system.
Noted vaccine expert Dr. Viera Schiebner stressed that
"(t)here is no evidence whatsoever of the ability of vaccines to prevent any diseases."
"To the contrary, there is a great wealth of evidence that they cause serious side effects."
In her book titled "Vaccination 100 years of Orthodox Research," she explained that vaccinations are biological weapons.
They can damage internal organs and leave children or adults vulnerable to severe autoimmune diseases – including diabetes, arthritis, hepatitis, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, polio and numerous others.
They're dangerous and unreliable. Thousands of severe adverse reactions occur annually – including permanent disabilities, at times deaths.
Rushed to market coronavirus vaccines by Big Pharma will be especially hazardous and should be avoided to protect human health.
It was a historic weekend for freedom activists around the world. Saturday, August 29th, one million true citizens of all walks of life united to stand against unscientific lock downs, government totalitarianism, and medical mandates.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Wants Investigation on Potential Life-Threatening Anaphylaxis if Injected with Moderna's COVID Vaccine
On August 26, Children's Health Defense (CHD) wrote a letter to Dr. Jerry Menikoff, Director of the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Human Research Protection (OHRP), asking for an investigation into serious safety concerns with the COVID-19 vaccine being developed by Moderna.
Moderna's version of the vaccine, championed by Dr. Anthony Fauci and funded with $500 million in taxpayer dollars through Dr. Fauci's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, contains polyethylene glycol (PEG), a molecule to which approximately 72% of the American population have antibodies and 8% have highly elevated levels of antibodies.
People who have pre-existing PEG antibodies could experience life-threatening anaphylaxis if injected with PEG-containing substances such as the Moderna COVID vaccine. Additionally, antibodies to PEG can both decrease the effectiveness of the vaccine and increase the risk of side effects.
Townhall.com, August 29: "According to The New York Times, potentially 90 percent of those who have tested positive for COVID-19 have such insignificant amounts of the virus present in their bodies that such individuals do not need to isolate nor are they candidates for contact tracing. Leading public health experts are now concerned that overtesting is responsible for misdiagnosing a huge number of people with harmless amounts of the virus in their systems."
It appears the curve has effectively been flattened, with indicators that track COVID-19-like illness decreasing in all regions the week ending August 15, 2020, and the percentage of positive laboratory tests for SARS-CoV-2 decreasing or remaining the same in nine out of 10 regions. Hospitalization rates and mortality attributed to COVID-19 also declined during the same period.2
Meanwhile, the initial virus panic involved the invocation of the Federal Defense Production Act, which included directing $3 billion to companies like General Electric, Philips and Ford to manufacture tens of thousands of ventilators.3 Now, those ventilators are sitting unused.
Suicides/overdoses up 42%, major portions of our society in despair or avoidable cancer.
Why? Because we thought that reporting deaths 6 weeks late was an act of policy/party justice.
No, it was an act of violence against the innocent.
On August 31, 2020, journalist Derrick Broze attended a press conference in Houston to ask the Mayor and Houston Health Authority about reports regarding problems with the Texas Department of State Health Services' numbers on COVID19 cases. Derrick also asked about concerns around the PCR test used to detect COVID19.
12bytes says: Regarding the PCR "test", which is not actually test at all, the doctor being interviewed re-confirms that whether a positive result is detected depends heavily upon how many times the sample is cycled and, as he points out, there is no standard number, even across labs in the same country.
What is Covid-19, SARS-2. How is it Tested? How is It Measured? The Fear Campaign Has No Scientific Basis - Global Research
The data and concepts have been manipulated with a view to sustaining the fear campaign.
The estimates are meaningless. The figures have been hyped to justify the lockdown and the closure of the national economy, with devastating economic and social consequences. The Virus is held responsible for poverty and mass unemployment.
Confirmed by prominent scientists as well as by official public health bodies including the World Health Organization (WHO) and the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Covid-19 is NOT a dangerous virus.
Florida Governor Says 'No More Lockdowns' at Press Conference with Trump's New Coronavirus Adviser - 21st Century Wire
At a press conference earlier this week that included President Trump's new coronavirus adviser, Dr. Scott Atlas, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said that his state will "never do any of these lockdowns again" – a lead other states could follow after months of peddling 'pandemic' fear:[...]
Several data points were shared on the negative impact lockdowns have had on the general population, as well as the lower risk posed to students heading back to school:
- In the month of June, of people age 18-24, 25% had reported serious thoughts of suicide;
- At one point during the crisis, two-thirds of scheduled cancer screenings were not completed;
- Younger people, especially those attending primary, secondary school or college, statistically have a much lower risk of developing symptoms and becoming infected with COVID-19.
"The point of all these things are to save lives. Not document asymptomatic people who are low risk," Atlas said.
It should be noted that, according to his resume, Atlas has connections to the pharmaceutical industry, having served in the past on several advisory boards, including for Bristol Myers Squibb and Sanofi.
Sanofi is actively developing a vaccine and has received federal grant funding under the banner of the Trump administration's "Operation Warp Speed" project.
To the police state, this COVID-19 pandemic has been a huge boon, like winning the biggest jackpot in the lottery. Certainly, it will prove to be a windfall for those who profit from government expenditures and expansions.
Given the rate at which the government has been devising new ways to spend our money and establish itself as the "solution" to all of our worldly problems, this current crisis will most likely end up ushering in the largest expansion of government power since the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Among all industrialized countries, the Eastern European nation of Belarus introduced the softest anti-coronavirus measures and even continued its soccer league and military parades. Long-time president Lukashenko famously called the coronavirus a "Western psychosis". Even coronavirus pragmatics like Sweden looked almost paranoid compared to Belarus.
Many Western media were instead predicting or even hoping for a coronavirus catastrophe in Belarus, as Western geostrategists wanted to get rid of Lukashenko for quite some time. However, such a catastrophe did not materialize and most Western media outlets simply stopped reporting about coronavirus developments in Belarus somewhen back in May.
Today, Belarus with a population of 9.5 million officially reports only 680 covid deaths.
The Andrews Labor government is facing a multibillion-dollar COVID-19 bill from businesses shut down during the stage four lockdown for failures in hotel quarantine, in a landmark class action that names Health Minister Jenny Mikakos, Jobs Minister Martin Pakula and their department secretaries.
RFK, Jr. and CHD Take Action on Safety Concerns over Moderna's COVID Vaccine • Children's Health Defense
On August 26, Children's Health Defense (CHD) wrote a letter to Dr. Jerry Menikoff, Director of the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Human Research Protection (OHRP), asking for an investigation into serious safety concerns with the COVID-19 vaccine being developed by Moderna.

Uber announced Tuesday that passengers who have refused to wear face coverings will soon be required to take a "mask selfie" before they can even request a car.
We were all there because we question government. When the masses are supporting kids wearing masks in schools, we are the people who have spent entire evenings trawling through peer reviewed science and censored information and are wondering who makes these decisions when more under 19s died from flu, and it now turns out that every one of the supposed Covid deaths had serious underlying conditions.
We are the people who have spent months of our spare time studying independent epidemiologists who are ignored by the media and who are saying that more lockdowns will result in a 15 million NHS backlog and resulting in thousands of unnecessary deaths, more increases in domestic abuse and rocketing suicides.
We are the people who are asking why are we destroying the mental health of millions of healthy people by fining them for having kids parties and preventing them from freely meeting up with who they want to, in any location, when they are not at risk, but at the same time BLM protests where statues were pulled down get the police kneeling and full support from the establishment.
We are the 'mad conspiracy theorists' who have studied the origins of the PCR test, and understand that entire areas are being locked down based on either false-positive results, or positive results that have not detected a live virus, but dead remnants of viral fragments that cannot be called 'infections'.
While making headlines as the first country to register a Covid-19 vaccine, several top Russian health leaders are voicing strong opposition to the shot's rollout. From the internal defections, it appears the science, ethics and legitimacy of the vaccine are being put into question.
Since being suggested as a potential therapy for #Covid19 patients, hydroxychloroquine's safety and effectiveness have come under assault by questionable players. The media's push-pull narrative gave way to straight up censorship as 'Frontline Doctors' made the case public. Now, several senators have sent a letter to the FDA commissioner to understand why this therapy is being blocked. Is this the beginning of a greater investigation?

Wake Up America. You've Been Conned. Only An Estimated 9,683 Covid-19 Only Deaths So Far In 2020, Not 180,000 - LewRockwell
About half-way down the screen page The Center for Health Statistics August 26, 2020 update on provisional death counts for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) states the following: "For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned."
Oh. You mean America is not undergoing a pandemic? On average, abut 8000 people die per day from all causes in the United States. In the first 8 months of 2020 there were only ~1200 excess deaths per month or 40 extra deaths per day exclusively due to COVID-19 coronavirus infections, with 80% of those among American age 65 and older. By extrapolation, there were only ~8 excess COVID-19 only deaths per day among working-age adults and school-age children.
Translation: of the 161,392 accumulated COVID-19 RELATED deaths reported as of August 22, 2020 (80% being among Americans age 75 and older), only 6% or ~9683 accumulated deaths were classified as COVID-19 only. Among these COVID-19 only deaths, ~60% were age 75 and older; 80% were age 65 and older. So, there were only ~2000 COVID-only deaths in working age adults and school-age children.
