While WEF Young Leader Leana Wen insists that overcounting of COVID-19 death isn’t intentional, numerous examples show the opposite. This is the first article in a series on the COVID-19 death toll.
I thought this was a huge "conspiracy" before I looked into and found that listing anyone hospitalized as a "covid hospitalization" was rewarded by the CARES Act. On top of that Part 2 of death certificates was re-written in April of 2020 to make any mention of Covid on Part 2 a direct cause of death . I wrote about this in my blog here: https://beyondspin.wordpress.com/2021/06/11/deaths-with-or-due-to-c-19/
Thanks for putting this together, excellent work, very helpful!
However, I noticed you referred to "Len" several times when you must have meant "Leana Wen.
"On its face, Len’s statement that . . ." and
"Since the earliest days of the COVID era, Len has tailored her . . ."
The reflexively compliant don't seem to understand that you can "trust the science" without trusting public health officials who prostitute themselves for big pharma, especially when they're obviously pushing big pharma talking points. When public health officials demand that the public have access to only their narratives and try to censor all others through intimidation and enlisting Silicon Valley platforms and corporate media sycophants, it should be a huge red flag to anyone who has a grain of healthy skepticism.
