It’s based on a release, months ago (like November I believe) that may or

May not still be accurate. Regardless, it’s become a far right talking point..... and even if it’s still accurate, it’s misleading at best.

The premise is based on the “fact” that 6% of Covid deaths purportedly cite only Covid on death certificates. So those with an agenda, twist the tidbit into saying that the other 94% are wholly unrelated to Covid. The reality is that some of the other 94% may have passed in the past year....... but a great many of them would not have.

I referenced Bear Hodges below. A little older, possibly a few extra pounds.... and maybe even some other little thing going on. But he had more life about him than folks half his age on this board...... with no indication whatsoever that he was in his last days. It’s wrong to count a car accident death that tested positive as Covid related, but it’s equally as wrong to say that Bear didn’t die of Covid because he had a comorbidity.

The answer, as with most things, is somewhere in between...... but those with agendas in either direction rarely offer that potential when they find a stat to support their case.
