CDC: COVID-19 “Only Cause Mentioned” in 6 Per Cent of Total Coronavirus Deaths

Other 94 per cent had serious illnesses.

The CDC has published an update that acknowledges “Covid-19 was the only cause mentioned” in 6 per cent of total coronavirus deaths.

“For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned,” states the CDC on its website.

“For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.”

The issue was the subject of a controversy after Twitter deleted a tweet retweeted by President Trump which said that the CDC had “quietly” updated its numbers “to admit that only 6%” of people listed as coronavirus deaths “actually died from Covid,” since “the other 94% had 2-3 other serious illnesses.”

Despite the language of the tweet being essentially true, the tweet was deleted anyway and CNN subsequently published an article labeling the tweet as a “QAnon supporter’s false claim.”

Journalist Tim Pool pointed out that far from debunking the “false claim,” CNN had actually validated it.

While COVID undoubtedly killed many of victims who had other serious illnesses, critics have argued that many of these people would have died within a short time frame anyway and that the official coronavirus death toll should be counted differently to account for this.

As we previously highlighted, polls show that Americans believe coronavirus to have been far deadlier than it actually was, suggesting huge numbers of people are misinformed.

The survey found that Americans believed over 30 million people had died in the U.S. from COVID, 225 times higher than the actual figure, which currently stands at 183,000.

Video: Australians Chant “Freedom!” as Market is Shut Down by COVID Riot Cops

Draconian coronavirus laws continued to be brutally enforced.

A remarkable video out of Australia shows people chanting “freedom!” as a food market is forcefully shut down by COVID riot cops.

The clip shows dozens of police on horseback and armed with riot gear facing off against market sellers and customers.

Chants of “freedom, freedom!” then break out as one officer directs the riot police to move in.

Cops armed with shields then begin charging and pushing people away while one man is singled out and dragged away by officers.

The state of Victoria has enforced one of the most draconian coronavirus lockdowns in the developed world, with authorities giving themselves the powers to enter homes without a warrant and also seize people’s children.

As we highlighted earlier this month, a pregnant woman was arrested in her home in front of her own kids for the crime of posting about the protest on Facebook.

Police in Melbourne also announced that they would be using surveillance drones to catch people who don’t wear masks and to keep track of cars that travel further than 5km from home.

Journalist Avi Yemini was also dragged to the ground and arrested for merely covering an anti-lockdown protest in Melbourne.

Numerous videos have also emerged of people being forcibly arrested by police for not wearing masks.

Chris Rock Blames Democrats For ‘Letting The Pandemic Come In’

Says they were too obsessed with impeaching Trump.

Hollywood Comedian Chris Rock squarely blamed Democrats for not being quick enough to quell the coronavirus pandemic earlier in the year, arguing that the party was too obsessed with trying to impeach President Trump.

Rock made the comments in an interview with the New York Times, noting “It was totally up to Pelosi and the Democrats.”

“Their thing was, ‘We’re going to get him impeached,’ which was never going to happen. You let the pandemic come in. Yes, we can blame Trump, but he’s really the 5-year-old,” Rock stated.

“Did you ever see that movie The Last Emperor, where like a 5-year-old is the emperor of China? There’s a kid and he’s the king. So I’m like, it’s all the Democrats’ fault. Because you knew that the emperor was 5 years old. And when the emperor’s 5 years old, they only lead in theory. There’s usually an adult who’s like, ‘OK, this is what we’re really going to do.’”

While clearly not defending Trump or the GOP, Rock has a point, given that Democrats such as Pelosi were actively encouraging people to attend gatherings and refusing to work with the White House on travel restrictions in February.

Elsewhere in the interview, Rock spoke out against the new trend of Hollywood, and the entertainment industry in general clamouring to erase from history anything that could potentially be deemed racist by anyone, noting that it’s odd the way they go to such lengths to show they’re against racism.

“Blackface ain’t cool, OK? That’s my quote. Blackface is bad. Who needs it? It’s so sad, we live in a world now where you have to say, I am so against cancer. “I just assumed you liked cancer.” No, no, no, I am so against it. You have to state so many obvious things you’re against.”

Rock also said noted during the interview that the Obama presidency shouldn’t be looked back on as progress for black Americans.

“Obama becoming the president, it’s progress for white people. It’s not progress for Black people,” Rock declared.

Dem Mayor Launches Study That Will Collect Blood Samples From Randomly Selected Houston Homes

Sylvester Turner “strongly encourages” participation.

Democratic Mayor Sylvester Turner has signed off on a new study that will see city employees visit randomly selected homes in Houston to collect blood samples for COVID-19 antibody testing.

The study is being conducted by the Houston Health Department in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Household members will be asked to answer a survey and give a blood sample. For some households, all members of the household will be asked to participate.

Authorities say the tests are necessary to develop a deeper insight into how COVID-19 spreads through the community and how many people were previously infected with the virus.

The Mayor said the program would be voluntary, but urged citizens to take part.

“If we knock on your door, I strongly encourage you and your loved ones to participate in this important survey,” said Turner. “The data you provide by participating will help inform strategies to mitigate the effects of COVID-19.”

In some other countries, such as New Zealand, people who refuse to take a COVID-19 test have been forcibly removed to quarantine facilities by health authorities.

In a previous interview, Turner had suggested that people who refused to take a coronavirus test were “irresponsible.”

Last month Turner also announced that police will begin issuing citations against people not wearing masks, hitting them with a fine of $250 dollars.
