Why has the news media doped us again about covid-19 see the details?
We all have seen the daily death reports all over the internet thousands and thousands coming in from each state and from each City we have been doped again by the news media. These deaths are deaths by all causes not just covid-19. Only 8% of the total reported deaths that they have been telling us about are from covid-19 why have they doped us again?

Yes there are many cases where people have had to go to ER"s for something totally unrelated to COVID, I.E. Car accident, broken bones. And is standard "protocol" they get tested for COVID. If they test positive regardless of what they were in there for they instantly become a "COVID" patient.
Because as soon as they are a COVID patient the hospital is eligible for funds it couldn't get before. If they happen to then pass away, their death is now a COVID death.
Now, with that this is a small percentage of situations so statistically minor. The bigger case you missed is that a majority of people who actually have COVID are asymptomatic or self-quarantined without getting tested, If you include all of these cases, the number of cases will go up. But the important number in terms of the death rate is significantly lower. On par or even less than the Flu, which is the closest comparison.

Do you mean "duped"? That's irrelevant, this disease is real, it is not a "hoax", and it is not going to "disappear".

My 85 year old dad has terminal cancer. His oncologist gave him about three years. Two of those years are gone. It sounds like you're saying that if next week my dad gets covid and dies, you'd rather have his death listed as a cancer death than a covid death. That's just shiity of you. I'd like to have as much time with my dad as possible. If covid cuts his life short, he died of covid, not cancer.

1. Cite your dubious references. Yes, most people dying of CV-19 have had other contributing co-morbidities. That does not mean that CV-19 did not cause their deaths: there is always a “final straw breaks the camel’s back”.
2. I’m not really going to take seriously any argument from someone who lacks the basic intelligence to know the difference between the words “doped” and “duped”.

The initial figures given to the cdc by hospitals around the country included all fatalities incidental to the covid virus. So, it was the definition of the data that was gathered that was given out to the media. It looks like the death figure is much lower.
