Yet another report from a senior Johns Hopkins lecturer's analysis concludes that the coronavirus had no overall effect on the total number of deaths in the United States. Genevieve Briand, a longtime professor of economics and statistics, was overrules by the hospital and was forced to withdraw her fact based report. However, the CDC statistics she sites proves her conclusions. Almost all of the seniors who died from hospital called COVID, would have died from other causes! How did she know this, because the same number of seniors died in 2019 as 2020, but with other causes, while in 2020, the same number died, but all with COVID 19 causes. We are to believe that seniors stopped dying of cancer, heart disease, strokes, injuries and a host of other causes of death that seemed to disappear in 2020!
It is unbelievable just how many lies our leaders are feeding us, and how gullible the American people have become. Sheeple is the best word for the American citizen of today. Americans are ready to throw away their liberties, fortunes and sanity for a lie, because fear rules the day, not common sense. Our forefathers are rolling in their graves, and so are the millions who died to defend our way of life.
Briand, who teaches Microeconomic Theory, Statistics and Econometrics, argued the significance of COVID-19 on U.S. deaths can be fully understood only through comparison to the number of total deaths in the country.
The CDC data showed there were 1.7 million total deaths in the United States between mid-March and mid-September, of which 200,000 are COVID-19-related. Briand examined the total deaths in each age group and the cause of death in her analysis.
"Surprisingly, the deaths of older people stayed the same before and after COVID-19," she found, according to the News-Letter report. "Since COVID-19 mainly affects the elderly, experts expected an increase in the percentage of deaths in older age groups," the report said.
But no such increase was seen in the CDC data.
"These data analyses suggest that in contrast to most people's assumptions, the number of deaths by COVID-19 is not alarming. In fact, it has relatively no effect on deaths in the United States," the report said. "This comes as a shock to many people. How is it that the data lie so far from our perception?"
The editor's note posted Friday explained that the News-Letter is an editorially and financially independent, student-run publication and its content is not endorsed by the university or the School of Medicine.
Briand's study, the News-Letter's article and its retraction have sparked considerable debate on social media amid controversy over how COVID deaths are determined, the reliability of government data and the complexities of statistical analysis.
Overall, the CDC says, just 6% of the people counted as COVID-19 deaths died of COVID-19 alone. Those who died of coronavirus, according to the CDC, had an average of 2.6 comorbidities, meaning more than two chronic diseases along with COVID-19.
The CDC estimates a 99.997% survival rate for those from birth to age 19 who contract COVID-19. It's 99.98% for ages 20-49, 99.5% for 50-69 and 94.6% for those over 70.
Briand found in her analysis that there naturally was a sudden increase in deaths early in 2020 compared to previous years that was due to COVID-19.
But she also noticed a significant decrease in deaths due to heart disease and all other causes.
"This suggests, according to Briand, that the COVID-19 death toll is misleading," the report said. "Briand believes that deaths due to heart diseases, respiratory diseases, influenza and pneumonia may instead be recategorized as being due to COVID-19."
The Johns Hopkins News-Letter article noted the CDC classifies all deaths that are related to COVID-19 simply as COVID-19 deaths.
"Even patients dying from other underlying diseases but are infected with COVID-19 count as COVID-19 deaths."
It's likely "the main explanation as to why COVID-19 deaths drastically increased while deaths by all other diseases experienced a significant decrease."
"All of this points to no evidence that COVID-19 created any excess deaths," Briand concluded. "Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers. We found no evidence to the contrary."
See Briand's webinar:
Briand was asked by the Johns Hopkins News-Letter to address the question of whether COVID-19 deaths can be called misleading since the infection might have exacerbated and even led to deaths by other underlying diseases.
She said that if the COVID-19 death toll "was not misleading at all, what we should have observed is an increased number of heart attacks and increased COVID-19 numbers."
"But a decreased number of heart attacks and all the other death causes doesn't give us a choice but to point to some misclassification," Briand replied.
The News-Letter clarified: "In other words, the effect of COVID-19 on deaths in the U.S. is considered problematic only when it increases the total number of deaths or the true death burden by a significant amount in addition to the expected deaths by other causes."
"Since the crude number of total deaths by all causes before and after COVID-19 has stayed the same, one can hardly say, in Briand’s view, that COVID-19 deaths are concerning."
Briand emphasized in the interview that while COVID-19 is a serious national and global problem, people should not forget about the tragic loss of lives from other causes.
America you are now a slave to the government you were to rule over. Your rights have been stripped away, your elected president that most of you voted for and who won in a landslide, has been ousted in a Deep State coup, and soon you will be forced to take vaccines, containing aborted babies, and sent to prison camps if you fail to comply. If you still don't take up arms against tyranny, you deserve whatever happens to you. Oh, if you want to know what's is coming for you? Then read our future, predicted by OUR GOD, 3,000 years ago HERE
