Just when you think that the data and reporting on the coronavirus couldn't get any more insane, it does.
We've seen numbers of cases and deaths from COVID exaggerated for a number of reasons. Even the funeral home directors in New York and doctors let us know very early on that the numbers were being fudged.
Over the past few months, we have seen this over and over again. Even the CDC's numbers recently showed us that only 6% of deaths were actually from COVID-19 alone. The rest had some underlying conditions. These numbers have even included people who died from poisoning, accidents, or other physical harm.
In fact, the tally system is so messed up the daughter of a woman who died 6 months ago received a letter stating that her mother had tested positive for COVID-19 from a test that was supposedly from just weeks ago.
“I’m just having a hard time understanding how they can say someone has COVID-19 when they are not even alive,” Troy told WATN.
“It’s been 6 months, almost 7, since she passed away. There was no testing that was done at that time. On her death certificate it was stated she died, what the cause of death was, and it was not COVID-19. It was COPD,” Whittington added.
Whittington told the outlet he called the SCHD to get to the bottom of this and was told his mother took a COVID-19 test on June 20.
“It’s impossible for someone to be tested on June 20, who passed away on February 16th,” Whittington told WATN. “I tried to call the health department this morning, ask them why this was going on. She said she would have to get a supervisor. She was sorry for the mistake or she couldn’t tell me any information till she got a supervisor, and I haven’t heard back from them.”
