For those who may have seen it, I mistakenly cited a source that is usually reliable and didn’t check their facts before citing them. MY MISTAKE! I’m sorry!

What it says is, “For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned.” That means 94% of the deaths being attributed to COVID-19 have significant other causes of death ranging from cancer to heart disease to poisoning.
Doing the math, as of August 22, 2020, 6% of the 161,302 deaths being ascribed to COVID-19 means that 9,678 deaths were due to COVID-19 alone (comparable to 3 days worth of automobile accident deaths https://policyadvice.net/car-insurance/insights/how-many-people-die-in-car-accidents/) and 151,623 deaths attributed to the virus had other serious problems.
And here’s the CDC’s chart showing expected (normal for the week) deaths versus adding in COVID-19.
Pretty pathetic reason for destroying the entire national economy, scaring people out of their wits, destroying our liberty, permanently closing a great many businesses that could not outlast the completely unnecessary lockdown, and massively increasing the national debt to give laid off people a pittance to compensate them for the loss of their ability to provide for themselves.
