In part we are being held hostage by bad statistics. Are all flu deaths now only a result of the Wuhan flu?

'We started to hear stories about "are these correct or are these incorrect?"'

Beginning May 15, the department began reporting the number of deaths in two ways:
  • The number of deaths among people with COVID-19. This represents the total number of deaths reported among people who have COVID-19, but COVID-19 may not have been the cause of death listed on the death certificate. This information is required by the CDC and is crucial for public health surveillance, as it provides more information about disease transmission and can help identify risk factors among all deaths across populations.
  • The number of deaths among people who died from COVID-19: This represents the total number of people whose death was attributed to COVID-19 as indicated on a death certificate. This number is determined by the CDC and is updated daily for dates through the previous Saturday.
