Published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine, the paper alleges that the number of deaths associated with the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States is far higher than what the data shows, this supposedly being proven by the number of so-called “excess” deaths that have occurred this year compared to last.
Because more people are said to be dying in 2020 compared to 2019, in other words, Yale’s top experts are attributing all of these deaths to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).
Even though there is no way to confirm that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) was directly responsible for all of these deaths, Yale is making that assumption based on the idea that: What else could it be?
“… many of those fatalities were likely caused by the coronavirus but not confirmed,” these Yale scientists admit, still claiming that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) is probably to blame.
“Our analyses suggest that the official tally of deaths due to Covid-19 represent a substantial undercount of the true burden,” alleges Dan Weinberger, an epidemiologist at the Yale School of Public Health, and one of the study’s lead authors.
“Other factors could contribute to the increase in deaths, such as people avoiding emergency treatment for things like heart attacks,” he is quoted as saying further, admitting that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions on “essential” services could also be to blame.
“Science” has become a guessing game, so how can we form policies based on its “conclusions?”
As you can probably tell, there are a lot of assumptions being made with this study that, unfortunately, are being used as concrete “evidence” by those in power to change the ways in which we all live.
While nobody knows for sure why more people seem to be dying this year compared to last year, it is simply assumed that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) is the cause, and that this somehow warrants stripping people of their freedoms and liberties.
Keep in mind that the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are both relying on studies like this one from Yale to form policies concerning what is “safe” or “unsafe” when it comes to people moving about in the world. This includes going to restaurants, shopping at grocery stores, and dare we say — being seen in public without a face covering.
For all we know, more people are dying due to loneliness and the shaking up of their world, which is negatively impacting their bodies’ immune responses. Other factors like 5G exposure, unhealthy eating, and not getting enough vitamin D from natural sunlight are also potential factors.
What the world needs most right now is some normalcy, not more panic and fear-mongering. Neither of the latter two are doing public health any favors, and are only further contributing to the breakdown of healthy living, which for an increasing many would seem to be resulting in early death.
As an aside, Yale has reportedly invited its students back for the upcoming fall semester, despite continued fears about the pandemic. Students who choose to return will be required to get tested for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) before being allowed to enter classrooms.
“These decisions are possible because of the continued decline in community transmission of COVID-19 in Connecticut, the creation of a university-wide COVID-19 screening program, and the implementation of other health and safety actions,” President Peter Salovey and Provost Scott Strobel wrote in a statement.
