Study: CDC violated federal law by inflating coronavirus death counts
02/09/2021 // Ramon Tomey // Views

A new study claims the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) violated federal laws by artificially inflating COVID-19 death counts.

The study published in Science, Public Health Policy and The Law "exposes major problems with how the CDC was able to generate inaccurate data during a crisis." It added that the CDC's methods in collecting and classifying data "significantly [impact] the published fatalities count due to COVID-19."

CDC violated federal laws when tallying COVID-19 deaths

A National File piece written by former Big League Politics Editor-In-Chief Patrick Howley asserted that the CDC "willfully violated" multiple federal laws. Some of the laws Howley claimed the CDC flouted include the Information Quality Act, Paperwork Reduction act and Administrative Procedures Act.

In a statement provided to the National File, Watchdog group All Concerned Citizens said that the CDC "illegally enacted new rules for data collection and reporting" for COVID-19 cases. These new rules resulted in a 1,600 percent increase in the number of COVID-19 fatalities. Despite being required to maintain full compliance with federal laws even during an emergency, the CDC failed to facilitate mandatory federal oversight and public scientific comment.

"The research [paper] asserts that CDC willfully compromised the accuracy and integrity of all COVID-19 case and fatality data from the onset of this crisis in order to fraudulently inflate case and fatality [numbers]," the watchdog continued.

The paper posited that the CDC compromised COVID-19 statistics by using two documents that did not undergo federal scrutiny as benchmarks for reporting.


Back in March 2020, the National Vital Statistics System issued COVID-19 Alert No. 2 under CDC's direction. The alert was issued to "all physicians, medical examiners and coroners" with regard to reporting COVID-19 fatalities on death certificates. Deaths arising from comorbidities were de-emphasized in favor of COVID-19 as a cause of death. This March 20 alert superseded widely-adopted rules and procedures in place for at least 17 years.

In April 2020, the CDC adopted a position paper by the non-profit Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists. Four CDC subject matter experts assisted in its creation. Section VII of the said paper established rules for COVID-19 data classification and collection, but not how to prevent one person from being counted multiple times as new COVID-19 cases. Because of this, people already hospitalized who return a positive PCR test could be counted as a new COVID-19 case every time.

All Concerned Citizens said a formal petition has been sent to the Department of Justice. U.S. All U.S. attorneys have also sought an immediate grand jury investigation into the matter, it added.

CDC hiding real COVID-19 death numbers

A Health Impact News article by Brian Shilhavy alleged that the public health body is hiding the actual number of COVID-19 deaths. Shilhavy posted screenshots from late December 2020 sent by a reader, showing the CDC website's COVID-19 statistics platform. The said platform now displays an error message as of writing.

Based on the screenshot, total deaths for 2020 – including those from COVID-19 – amounted to 2,902,664. But the CDC website currently reports 3,320,435 total deaths for 2020. (Related: CDC admits false positives are being "mistakenly" included in official coronavirus data.)

Manipulating key data is just a small aspect of what public health bodies such as the CDC can and will do to keep the public confused and unaware of the actual situation. They have pushed for vaccines, lockdowns and monitoring amid the ongoing Wuhan coronavirus pandemic.

Despite the dangers of coronavirus vaccines, public health bodies have considered it making mandatory – striking back against those who opt not to get the jab and those who advocate against it. They have also used coronavirus cases to justify lockdowns despite the negative effects of such mandates on the economy. Lastly, they have pushed for monitoring citizens who got their COVID-19 jab despite privacy concerns.
