There have been an estimated 942,431 excess deaths in the US since February 2020


This is an excerpt from an article from The Guardian that discusses under counted deaths from long term effects of Covid.

Interesting read.

snip:

“Death rates are up 40% over what they were pre-pandemic,” he said, among working-age people between 18 and 64. Deaths among older Americans have also increased, with one in 100 Americans over the age of 65 dying.

There have been an estimated 942,431 excess deaths in the US since February 2020, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Hispanic, Black and Native American and Alaska Native populations have been disproportionately affected with high death rates, research shows.

Previous crises pale in comparison to the pandemic, Davison said. “A one-in-200-year catastrophe would be a 10% increase over pre-pandemic [levels]. So 40% is just unheard of.”

1. Year over year death statistics were always going to be the telltale.

Lying Republicans have distorted the deaths where they could, but the totals are facts.

2. Close to 1 in 300 Americans have died from this holocaust. So far.

This is a HOLOCAUST.

3. Any data on populated v rural areas? Because red v blue we understand but that's not the whole tale

We think attrition is to our benefit. But it may not be as much as one thinks.
