BOMBSHELL: Johns-Hopkins researcher says CDC data show COVID-19 has NO effect on percentage of death in older people and has NOT increased number of U.S. deaths
(Natural News) When all is said and done, Americans — and the world — are going to discover that while the COVID-19 virus is real as was the pandemic, virtually nothing we’ve been told about the infection morbidity rates has been accurate.
Not even close; in fact, and this has been borne out by a new analysis of COVID-19 death and regular death rates in the United States using government data.
As of mid-November, according to the most current information, the United States ranked first in coronavirus cases, new cases per day, and deaths. Using those metrics, Genevieve Briand, assistant program director of the Applied Economics master’s degree program at Johns-Hopkins, “critically analyzed the effect of COVID-19 on U.S. deaths using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in her webinar titled ‘COVID-19 Deaths: A Look at U.S. Data,’” according to the institution’s November 26 newsletter, which is archived here.
According to the data Briand accessed, between mid-March and mid-September, total deaths in the U.S. reached 1.7 million, of which 200,000 — some 12 percent —are COVID-19-related.
But rather than look only at those deaths, Briand concentrated on the total number of deaths per age group and per cause of death and then used that data to gauge the overall effects of the virus.
“She explained that the significance of COVID-19 on U.S. deaths can be fully understood only through comparison to the number of total deaths in the United States,” the newsletter stated.
The findings were stunning — and not anything you’re going to hear in the ‘mainstream’ shutdown media:
After retrieving data on the CDC website, Briand compiled a graph representing percentages of total deaths per age category from early February to early September, which includes the period from before COVID-19 was detected in the U.S. to after infection rates soared.
Surprisingly, the deaths of older people stayed the same before and after COVID-19. Since COVID-19 mainly affects the elderly, experts expected an increase in the percentage of deaths in older age groups. However, this increase is not seen from the CDC data. In fact, the percentages of deaths among all age groups remain relatively the same.
"The reason we have a higher number of reported COVID-19 deaths among older individuals than younger individuals is simply because every day in the U.S. older individuals die in higher numbers than younger individuals,” Briand noted.
