The thing that people have to realize is with everything that you can take numbers and manipulate them to make it look like they mean anything you want.
I mean, you can make a number say that you are number one in something it can mean between a certain age group. With the COVID numbers, these miscounts are much more sinister.
Someone I know told me a while back that they are probably counting everyone who falls off their roof cleaning their gutters as a COVID death. Boy, was he right.
During a week in which coronavirus reporting errors have left little doubt that the number of deaths being attributed to COVID-19 can be disputed, a man killed in a traffic accident was considered to have officially died from the virus, according to a report.
WOFL-TV reported Thursday that two individuals in their twenties had died of the coronavirus in Orange County, Florida.
The outlet spoke to Orange County Health Officer Dr. Raul Pino, who had a shocking explanation about how deaths are being reported in the Sunshine State.
Pino was asked if the two young individuals who died from the coronavirus had any underlying medical conditions.
The doctor’s response was astounding.
“The first one didn’t have any,” the health official said about one death and any possible pre-existing medical conditions.
“He died in a motorcycle accident,” Pino said.
Pino further revealed that he couldn’t rule out the possibility that the young man’s trauma death was counted as a coronavirus death by the state.
He was asked if the man’s name had been removed from the state’s COVID-19 data.
“I don’t think so. I have to double-check,” he told WOFL.
“We were arguing — discussing — or trying to argue with the state. Not because of the numbers — it’s 100, it doesn’t make any difference if it’s 99 — but the validity that the fact that the individual didn’t die from COVID-19, died in the crash,” he said.
Pino then appeared to justify the man’s death being attributed to the coronavirus.
“But you could actually argue that it could have been the COVID-19 that caused him to crash. So I don’t know the conclusion of that one,” he said.
