Video: Funeral Directors in COVID-19 Epicenter Doubt Legitimacy of Deaths Attributed to Pandemic
A new data analysis shows Swedish all-cause mortality since 1851 (see chart below). The covid peak in 2020 is clearly visible and comparable to the strong seasonal flu waves of the 1980s and 1990s (despite a younger population at the time). The much stronger 1918 Spanish flu is also clearly visible.
Remarkably, despite covid, 2020 mortality in the <65 age group is actually below the five year average.
New evidence has emerged which shows that UK hospital admissions for COVID-19 were 'over-reported' during the height of the crisis back in April. It seems that patients who were being taken in for other common illnesses were in fact being counted as 'COVID' in the government's statistical totals.
A Southern Arizona lawmaker is claiming that a new study he commissioned shows that there is no correlation between the rising number of people being infected with COVID-19 and the number who wind up in the hospital.
When the administrator of the Saugus Rehab and Nursing Center in Saugus, Massachusetts, heard that a new Medicare website reported her facility had 794 confirmed cases of COVID-19 — the second highest in the country — and 281 cases among staff, she gasped.[...]
Ajayi said her 80-bed facility actually reported 45 residents have tested positive and five residents died, although the CMS website showed no Saugus deaths. About 19 staff members tested positive for the virus, and most have returned to work, she said.
This revelation comes a few days after I wrote here at American Thinker that New York City was lying about COVID-19 deaths. The normal rules about reporting deaths have been violated by that city in the rush to inflate the body count, presumably to steer more taxpayer money to the Big Apple.
That the CDC isn't telling the truth to Americans is no conspiracy theory: it's right out there in the open for everyone to see. The CDC openly admits that it is fudging the COVID-19 death figures.
New questions tonight about the accuracy of the [COVID-19] death count after the CBS12 News I-Team uncovers several cases of people listed as COVID deaths but clearly died of something else. A 90-year-old man who fell and died from complications of a hip fracture. A 60-year-old man dead from a gunshot wound to the head. These are some of the deaths in Palm Beach County recently and incorrectly labeled as COVID deaths in medical examiner records. [T]he Palm Beach County medical examiner's COVID deaths spreadsheet […] has 581 deaths listed. All of them tested positive for [SARS-CoV-2]. But CBS News noticed eight cases in which the person died of something completely different…
On Friday, April 24, 2020, Vittorio Sgarbi, a member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies, denounced what he claims are false coronavirus death statistics. Sgarbi feels that fake statistics are being propagated by the government and the media to terrorize the citizens of Italy and establish a dictatorship.
The member of the Forza Italia party slammed the closure of 60% of Italian businesses for 25,000 Chinese-Coronavirus deaths from the floor of the legislature. "It’s not true," he said. "Don’t use the deaths for rhetoric and terrorism." According to the National Institute of Health, 96.3% did not die of coronavirus, but of other pathologies stated Sgarbi – which means that only 925 have died from the virus and 24,075 have died of other things claimed Sgarbi, "….the virus was little more than an influenza. Don’t lie! Tell the truth!"
Hundreds of people across the United States have been complaining that they are receiving calls from clinics and medical offices claiming that they have confirmed positive for C0VlD but those people say they were never tested. Is this just an internet rumor or is it really happening? We're investigating.
What do all these news accounts have in common? "Florida Sets Yet Another Coronavirus Record: 173 Deaths In A Day."
"A record 173 Floridians died from the virus Thursday, an average of more than one every eight minutes."
"The 134 new confirmed deaths is the second-largest increase on record, coming five days after the largest one-day jump of 156 last week."
"COVID-19 has ravaged Florida, with more than 237,000 people testing positive and 2,013 dying from the virus in July alone."
So what characteristic do all of the reports share? They are all false.
Faulty or contaminated tests have been used and reporting guidelines have been changed and updated multiple times, virtually eliminating any possibility of accurately tracking infected cases and deaths.
Most recently, a July 17, 2020, study1,2 in the International Journal of Geriatrics and Rehabilitation concluded half of all nucleic acid coronavirus tests distributed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provided inaccurate results — 30% being false positives and 20% false negatives.
Professor Carl Heneghan is Director of the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine at Oxford University, and has been paying close attention to the Covid-19 statistics. (…) [A]n extraordinary detail: the Public Health England daily death totals announced to the media include anyone who has ever tested positive for Covid-19 — even if they recovered completely.
Tests for SARS-CoV-2 in South Korea Can't Distinguish Virus from Viral Fragments - The Vaccine Reaction
A team of South Korean infectious disease researchers has concluded there is no evidence that people can be reinfected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The researchers, led by Oh Myoung-don, MD, head of Seoul National University Hospital's division of infectious diseases, believe that reports of patients who have recovered from COVID-19 and subsequently tested positive again for SARS-CoV-2 were not due to reinfection or reactivation but, rather, to testing errors.1 2 3 4 5 6
According to Dr. Oh, the PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests used to determine the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and help diagnose cases of COVID-19 cannot distinguish between the virus and harmless fragments of the virus.1 2 3 4 5 6 Vaccine developer Seol Dai-wu of Chung-Ang University in Seoul, South Korea agrees. "The RT-PCR machine itself cannot distinguish an infectious viral particle versus a non-infectious virus particle, as the test simply detects any viral component," Seol said.2

Florida Gov. DeSantis Calls for Investigation into Why People Are Testing 'Positive' for Coronavirus Tests They Never Received - LewRockwell
According to reports, Gov. DeSantis has asked the state's Department of Health to look into the situation further. He announced that it makes no sense whatsoever that people who were never even evaluated by a practitioner are now receiving anomalous positive test results that are being used by some to push for more lockdowns and mask-wearing.
MADISON, Wis. — Public Health Madison and Dane County has corrected a backlog of negative test results displayed on its data dashboard by adding around 17,000 negative tests on Friday.[...]
The department said it was between eight and 10 days behind in updating that metric on the dashboard, and as a result it appeared to show a higher positive percentage of tests and a lower number of total tests per day.
The department said this delay is due to the fact data analysts must input each of the hundreds of tests per day manually, and in order to continue accurate and timely contact tracing efforts, they prioritized inputting positive tests.
If COVID Fatalities Were 90.2% Lower, How Would You Feel About Schools Reopening? • Children's Health Defense
Key Findings For Data Through July 12th
- According to the CDC, 101 children age 0 to 14 have died from influenza, while 31 children have died from COVID-19.
- No evidence exists to support the theory that children pose a threat to educational professionals in a school or classroom setting, but there is a great deal of evidence to support the safety of in-person education.
- According to the CDC, 131,332 Americans have died from pneumonia and 121,374 from COVID-19 as of July 11th, 2020.
- Had the CDC used its industry standard, Medical Examiners' and Coroners' Handbook on Death Registration and Fetal Death Reporting Revision 2003, as it has for all other causes of death for the last 17 years, the COVID-19 fatality count would be approximately 90.2% lower than it currently is.
We know the prescribed PCR tests are not detecting the COVID-19 genome. According to the CDC's own literature, the tests do not rule out bacterial infection or other viruses. They are detecting all varieties of coronavirus, including the common cold – and counting it as COVID-19.
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A 60-year-old man who died from a gun shot wound to the head.
A 90-year-old man who fell and died from complications of a hip fracture.
A 77-year-old woman who died of Parkinson's disease.
These are some of the deaths in Palm Beach County recently, and incorrectly, attributed to COVID-19 in medical examiner records.[...]
She said of the 581 deaths on the spreadsheet, only 169 deaths are listed as COVID without any contributing factors.
Neil Ferguson's Coronavirus Imperial College Model -- 'Professor Lockdown' Resigns in Disgrace | National Review
Neil Ferguson is the British academic who created the infamous Imperial College model that warned Boris Johnson that, without an immediate lockdown, the coronavirus would cause 500,000 deaths and swamp the National Health Service.[...]
Indeed, Ferguson’s Imperial College model has been proven wildly inaccurate. To cite just one example, it saw Sweden paying a huge price for no lockdown, with 40,000 COVID deaths by May 1, and 100,000 by June. Sweden now has 2,854 deaths and peaked two weeks ago. As Fraser Nelson, editor of Britain’s Spectator, notes: “Imperial College’s model is wrong by an order of magnitude.”[...]
Ferguson was behind the disputed research that sparked the mass culling of eleven million sheep and cattle during the 2001 outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease. Charlotte Reid, a farmer’s neighbor, recalls: “I remember that appalling time. Sheep were left starving in fields near us. Then came the open air slaughter. The poor animals were panic stricken. It was one of the worst things I’ve witnessed. And all based on a model — if’s but’s and maybe’s.”
In 2002, Ferguson predicted that, by 2080, up to 150,000 people could die from exposure to BSE (mad cow disease) in beef. In the U.K., there were only 177 deaths from BSE.
In 2005, Ferguson predicted that up to 150 million people could be killed from bird flu. In the end, only 282 people died worldwide from the disease between 2003 and 2009.
In 2009, a government estimate, based on Ferguson’s advice, said a “reasonable worst-case scenario” was that the swine flu would lead to 65,000 British deaths. In the end, swine flu killed 457 people in the U.K.
"If we had not known about a new virus out there, and had not checked individuals with PCR [virus] tests, the number of total deaths due to 'influenza-like illness' would not seem unusual this year. At most, we might have casually noted that flu this season seems to be a bit worse than average."
On re-evaluation by the National Institute of Health, only 12 per cent of death certificates have shown a direct causality from coronavirus, while 88 per cent of patients who have died have at least one pre-morbidity – many had two or three
Scientists Say New, Lower CDC Estimates For Severity Of COVID-19 Are Optimistic : Shots - Health News : NPR
The CDC expects hospitals to see millions fewer COVID-19 patients than the agency expected in mid-April, according to a comparison between a new modeling document and earlier, internal versions obtained by the Center for Public Integrity in April. The agency, part of the Department of Health and Human Services, also expects roughly 100,000 fewer deaths over the course of the pandemic.
A new system of gathering data had allowed them to identify cases that were counted twice and exclude deaths wrongly attributed to the virus, said Fernando Simon, the health ministry's emergencies coordinator.
Pa. removes more than 200 deaths from official coronavirus count as questions mount about reporting process, data accuracy
But facing mounting questions about the accuracy of the count, officials on Thursday removed more than 200 probable deaths from the tally, further complicating the state's accounting of the pandemic. Health Secretary Rachel Levine said the change was made in an effort to be transparent.
Last month, the CDC told states to include probable COVID-19 cases in their reports to the agency. Probable coronavirus deaths don't have positive test results but in which other evidence - like the symptoms and course of their disease, and exposure to infected people - points to the infection. Currently, 28 states count only lab-confirmed deaths, while 22 others include probable coronavirus cases, too.
As of May 18, the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) has reported 18,433 cases of Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and 1,001 deaths in Washington state due to the virus.
However, Freedom Foundation research indicates DOH’s reported COVID-19 death total is inflated by as much as 13 percent due to state’s practice of counting every person who tests positive for COVID-19 and subsequently dies, even if the death was not caused by COVID-19.
On Friday, the Colorado Department of Health and Environment revised that state’s total deaths “due to” COVID-19 downward from 1,150 to 878 after local news reported the state was inflating its fatality count in a similar fashion.
The Freedom Foundation has also confirmed DOH intends to start counting “probable” COVID-19 deaths among its totals, which will result in the inclusion of deaths of persons who had not tested positive for COVID-19.
It turns out Michigan was artificially inflating its testing totals by combining two very different kinds of tests — those that identify an active infection and those that indicate past exposure, providing an inaccurate picture of the state's testing capacity.
Concerns over the way death tolls were being counted emerged after New York added 4,000 people who had never tested positive to its official count overnight. The CDC later confirmed that they were including "probable" cases of the virus in its official counts, potentially adding thousands of people who never tested positive to official death tolls.
NYC Adds Nearly 4,000 People Who Never Tested Positive To Coronavirus Death Tolls | The Daily Caller
The city decided to add 3,700 people to its death tolls, who they "presumed" to have died from the virus, according to a report from The New York Times. The additions increased the death toll in the U.S. by 17%, according to the Times report, and included people who were suffering from symptoms of the virus, such as intense coughing and a fever.
Fewer COVID-19 deaths reported in Colorado after health department changes fatality categorization | FOX31 Denver
DENVER (KDVR) — Nearly 300 fewer people have died directly from COVID-19 in Colorado than originally reported, after the Colorado Department of Health and Environment changed the death statistics Friday.
During the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, it has been brought to my attention some untruths and misleading statistics released by the Department of Health.
Last week, I placed many phone calls to the Department of Health in an attempt to correct these inconsistencies. I believe that the residents of our county should not be misled or confused by falsified data. Unfortunately, my calls fell upon deaf ears.
The Department of Health and their website, which is updated daily, had reported that six people in our county had died due to COVID-19. This is incorrect. Where and how they came up with this number is unknown to me. The correct number for Armstrong County is two.
Last week, Colorado was forced to revise its own COVID-19 fatality numbers down by a whopping 23% after state and local officials called out the coding of deaths of people who died of other causes causes who merely tested positive for the virus. It now appears that this trend is widespread in Colorado and all over the country, which would explain why we saw an endless surge in the death count for weeks after hospitals were already empty. Once testing became standard, officials were retroactively recoding anyone who tested positive for COVID-19 without any evidence they died from it.
In the wake of this revision, Jared Polis, the Democrat governor of Colorado, started pushing back against the official coronavirus death counts, saying even those of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are inflated from including people who tested positive for the coronavirus but died of other causes.
"The CDC criteria include anybody who has died with COVID-19, but what the people of Colorado and the people of the country want to know is how many people died of COVID-19," Polis told Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday."
More Statistical Fraud: Florida, Texas, Colorado - All Caught Inflating COVID Cases and Deaths - 21st Century Wire
All of this is crucial when considering how all of the federal and state governments seemingly half-baked policies for supposedly stopping the spread of coronavirus – Lockdowns, ad hoc 'social distancing' rules, mandatory masks, mass testing and contact tracing, school closures, travel bans and quarantines, and of course, the mad rush to roll-out Big Pharma's experimental coronavirus vaccine – are all based on what now seems to be a false perception that COVID-19 is a 'pandemic' which requires unprecedented mitigation laws and regulations.
"It turns out you could have been tested positive in February, recovered, then hit by a bus in July and you'd be recorded as a covid death."

"The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is now clarifying that its death tally includes the total number of fatalities among people who had COVID-19, including those deaths in which the respiratory disease was not the cause of death listed on the death certificate."
"[...] if you were in hospice and had already been given a few weeks to live, and then you also were found to have COVID, that would be counted as a COVID death. It means, technically even if you died of [a] clear alternative cause, but you had COVID at the same time, it's still listed as a COVID death."
HHS Assistant Secretary for Health Confirms States are Inflating COVID-19 Fatality Numbers to Receive Higher Payments | U.S. Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer
"There are reports -- and I have been talking to medical professionals -- that there's been misreporting of deaths for people who may have been involved in for instance, an auto accident but had COVID in their system, and that death's then being reported as a COVID death because there apparently is perverse incentive to do that. The hospitals get paid more for a COVID death than they do for an auto accident."
Orange County inflated its coronavirus test numbers by mistakenly including antibody tests, officials say - Los Angeles Times
For roughly five weeks, county staff incorrectly added 30,000 serology tests to its "cumulative tests to date" figure, which made it appear that more testing for the virus was happening than was the case.
Pasadena health officials believe the city's reported coronavirus death rate, and how it's required to be reported under state law, may be artificially inflating the city's death toll by including nonresidents and deaths that weren't necessarily caused by COVID-19.
GOP rep alleges falsified COVID-19 records, calls for indictment of Colorado's top health official | 9news.com
DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — A Republican state representative asked prosecutors to bring criminal charges against Colorado's top public health official Thursday, claiming that she illegally falsified death records to inflate COVID-19 death totals.
Armstrong County coroner claims state COVID-19 data 'inflated' in his region | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
The Armstrong County Coroner's Office took to social media Monday night to vent frustration over what it called "inconsistencies" with certain data from the Pennsylvania Department of Health's daily COVID-19 counts and accused state officials of "inflating the numbers."
A male corpse was found in a Colorado park with a 0.55% alcohol level. That's well above the lethal limit. The coroner declared cause of death as alcohol poisoning. But just as in those sardonic memes, the state's Department of Public Health and Environment (DPHE) insisted on categorizing it as a COVID-19 death.
Horowitz: Bombshell report: Dr. Birx believes the CDC is inflating death numbers by as much as 25% | News Break
On Saturday, the Washington Post reported that Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House Coronavirus Task Force response administrator, is accusing the CDC of using an antiquated model to track coronavirus deaths that could be responsible for inflating the death numbers by as much as 25 percent.
CENTENNIAL, Colo. (CBS4)– The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has reclassified three deaths at a Centennial nursing home as COVID-19 deaths, despite the fact attending physicians ruled all three were not related to coronavirus, according to a CBS4 Investigation.
Coronavirus a contributing factor to Lehigh Valley patient's death, coroner says - lehighvalleylive.com
Lehigh County Coroner Eric Minnich confirmed the patient died Friday night at St. Luke's University Hospital in Fountain Hill. He said the primary cause of the man's death was a head injury from a fall at home, but that the virus was listed as a contributing factor to his death.
Last month, New York funeral home directors blew the whistle about inflated coronavirus death numbers. Death certificates mark "COVID-19" as the cause of death even when the deceased hadn't tested positive for coronavirus, much less actually died of the virus. This week, a San Diego county supervisor suggested the numbers are even more inflated.
Funeral Directors in COVID-19 Epicenter Doubt Legitimacy of Deaths Attributed to Pandemic - Project Veritas
The accuracy of models forecasting the spread and lethality of the disease has come under intense scrutiny, in part because the model estimates themselves, and their incorporation into authoritative government policies and orders, have been widely divergent and sometimes incomprehensible.
The federal government is classifying the deaths of patients infected with the coronavirus as COVID-19 deaths, regardless of any underlying health issues that could have contributed to the loss of someone's life.
The CDC counts both true COVID-19 cases and speculative guesses of COVID-19 the same. They call it death by COVID-19. They automatically overestimate the real death numbers, by their own admission.
In New York City, the death of anyone who dies who tests positive for COVID-19 is counted as a coronavirus death. This is the case even if the coronavirus failed to play a significant role in the person's passing or illness.
Cause of death has taken on a whole new meaning in this country due to the fraud called Covid-19, as no proof whatsoever is necessary to claim death occurred due to Covid. In fact, the CDC guidelines distributed to every doctor makes this perfectly clear, as the more deaths attributed to this so-called virus, the better it is for those standing to profit from this fake pandemic.
"Basically, every death certificate that comes across our desk now has COVID on it," said a funeral director in Williston Park, N.Y., on a recorded phone call with Project Veritas in a newly-released video.
Dr. Scott Jensen, a Minnesota family physician who is also a Republican state senator, told "The Ingraham Angle" Wednesday that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) guidelines for doctors to certify whether a patient has died of coronavirus are "ridiculous" and could be misleading the public.
