The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases' Director (NIAID), Dr Anthony Fauci, M.D., attributes all the COVID-related deaths explicitly to be the brought on by the virus. This contradicts the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) statistics that rolled out yesterday, blaming only six percent on American deaths.
The CDC's new data on the provisional counts of COVID cases and deaths was released last week and stated that the virus is not the only one to blame. A low six percent was found by the agency to be the sole cause of deaths brought on by the pandemic while the other 94 percent with the virus died of complications or prior illness.
The statistics for the six percent of deaths is around 9,000 people dying from COVID-19 alone, with more than 183,000 in total. The statistics posted by the CDC was updated last August 26. The said statistics led the public to believe that the novel coronavirus is not the killer; in this case, blaming other underlying medical conditions that the deceased has.
However, according to CNBC, Dr Anthony Fauci ultimately blames the coronavirus for killing all the people with COVID-related cases in the country, despite CDC's statistics. Fauci gravely accounted that the said "comorbidities" or the existing medical conditions does not override the fact that a person who caught COVID-19, did not die from the virus.
Fauci's Take on CDC's Statistics
The NIAID Director further states that this should not confuse the public, especially those who have the virus. The coronavirus should not be taken lightly as it still is the cause for the rising cases and deaths of more than 9 million people in the country.
CDC's statistics should not be confused with COVID-19 not being the cause of the 183,000 deaths and counting. Fauci says that there is no such thing as 9,000 deaths for COVID and the rest to other underlying illness.
The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), an agency within CDC, said that the death certificates state all of the possible causes of deaths in the American community. The agency notes that what CDC said in their report is that the low six percent of fatalities attributes to COVID alone.
Furthermore, 161,300 death certificates listed COVID-19 along with other diseases or illness that took the life of these citizens.
CDC states that what they shared and expressed is that people with existing medical conditions are more at risk of contracting the coronavirus and worst-case scenario, may die from it. The agency's guidelines and reminders during the early stages of the virus warned people with underlying medical conditions are gravely in danger from COVID.
Conspiracy in CDC's COVID-death Statistics
The Washington Post reports that QAnon is at it again for sharing a couple of tweets that attributes the deaths to only six percent based on CDC's statistics. The group misinterpreted the data shown by the CDC that shows only a low number of COVID deaths. The tweet went viral, but Twitter already removed it because of misinformation.
QAnon is known for their conspiracy that targets the coronavirus and aims to present a different view to the public. The group previously made two short films that highly suggests that COVID-19 is a propaganda virus that elites in America, including Dr Fauci, used to take control of the world.
The conspiracy made by QAnon is widely considered to be misleading and fake. People are advised to reject the information created by the group as it aims to thwart real knowledge and information about the virus from medical experts.
