Yes, I DO.
The CDC comorbidity rules for Covid are absolutely unique.
The CDC guidance for possible Covid related cause on death certs is absolutely unique.
Yes, I know, the media insists that the changes to death cert guidance is no big deal. However, any person with 3 or more working brain cells can see the impact of the changes made in response Covid. No disease has ever been reported in the same manner.
In the April 7 CDC report there are 539,733 “Deaths involving Covid 19”.
In the same report, under the heading “Conditions contributing to deaths involving COVID-19” (comorbidity) the number of cases is 536,793.
That is not a typing error. According to the CDC 99.5% of supposed Covid deaths involved at least one comorbidity. Run that through your head. No other disease comes even remotely close to that type of number. Not even influenza. This is the direct result of reporting every death in which the DC mentions Covid as a Covid death.
I fully understand the contributory effects it has on other conditions. I just lost another friend this week to Covid. Heart transplant recipient, all rock star for 20 years. But his compromised immune system could not handle the impact of the virus. Absolutely a Covid death, despite the fact that he had long outlived his expected survival time.
There are several categories that I find very troubling. Alzheimer’s. Vascular dementia. Those 2 alone account for 75,000 deaths. Cancers. Most of the cardiac categories. And yes, injuries. Over 10,000 cases of drowning, gunshots, penetrating wounds, blunt trauma, auto accidents, even murders. Listed as Covid deaths.
I do not know what the real number is. I do know that it isn’t even close to the official figure. My best guess is less than 50% of reported deaths can be directly and absolutely blamed on Covid.
The single most powerful man in the nation at this time.
The problem here is that the evidence is not in sync with the testimony of the prosecution witnesses. A prime example is the medical “expert” who claimed that opiates and meth do not have an impact on the human respiratory rate. I don’t understand why he said that. It is a long established medical fact that drugs the depress or accelerate the CNS absolutely have an impact on the respiratory rate, along with heart rate, BP, etc. The defense will destroy his credibility on this point which will seriously weaken all of his other “expert” statements.
He placed the sole cause of death as the pressure on the neck. He did not address the impact of the other officers compressing Floyd’s torso. Quite a few medical experts have suggested that the compression of the chest cavity was far more important than the neck pressure because of Floyd’s asthma and the drug depressed respiratory system. But that would require the prosecution to charge Lane and Kueng at the same level as Chauvin.
Floyd was claiming he couldn’t breathe just sitting in the squad car. Defense will argue that because he did that when he was quite obviously still breathing the cops had no reason to believe him when he was pinned. Add the toxicology report that had his fentanyl level nearly 3 time the fatal dose for a non-addict. Add multiple witnesses and medical literature in re the effect of drugs on respiration.
And, officers were trained to use that technique, were not trained to consider it as a choking hazard. That has already been publicly established by MPD officials many months ago.
The defense has a very good shot at getting Chauvin acquitted of all the charges related to the death itself.
You need to push back on that. In pretty much every State insurance law requires that emergency procedures be covered at in-network levels. Period. Full Stop.
Definitely push back. Touch base with your State Insurance Department if you get the runaround. They LOVE imposing fines on insurance companies. That’s how they finance the Departments.
In reality the hospital/MD/office would have pre-certifed the procedure before even scheduling it.
Not what all the fuss is. A lot of us do this.
Darn. Saw your post after I posted.
I wonder if the sneaky coffee spy is branching out.
If I provide detailed analysis of the major flaws in the latest audit are you going to complain to the moderators again? I’ll give you some leads to pursue but I am hesitant to have a full “discussion” with you again. Last time I gave you proof of my assertions (from the NYT and WaPo) I was mysteriously suspended and thrown into GC jail.
The audit instructions were created by Maricopa county and appear to be very narrow in scope. Anything outside the scope is simply ignored by the auditors.
There was no detailed analysis of the 12% adjudication rate. That number is a massive departure from national norms. That alone merits a full blown investigation into the software and equipment.
Analysts have noted that Dominion software allows logs to be edited, replaced, and completely deleted while leaving no audit trail of that users credentials. The County instructions for auditing internet connectivity of the scanners was also extremely narrow in its definition. A limited number of machines were audited with a very limited scope.
There are a myriad of issues the Maricopa audits do not cover because the authors of the audit parameters simply failed to include them.
You truly are a moron. A lazy moron. All you had to do was scroll down the page.

The total number stopped changing about 3 months ago apparently in reaction to the growing public questions about why Covid was the listed cause of death for auto accidents, gunshot, blunt trauma and other INJURIES. My favorite was the gunshot Murder/Suicide with both victims listed as Covid deaths.
