CDC Says It ‘Accidentally’ Inflated COVID Death Numbers

The CDC revised its data this week, reducing pediatric deaths from COVID by a nearly 24%. It was part of a larger removal of over 70,000 deaths. The CDC claims it was the result of an unintentional error, but critics have pointed out the logical flaw since the reporting method was disclosed.

According to the Daily Caller:

“An adjustment was made to COVID Data Tracker’s mortality data on March 14 involving the removal of 72,277 — including 416 pediatric deaths — deaths previously reported across 26 states because CDC’s algorithm was accidentally counting deaths that were not COVID-19-related,” Jasmine Reed, a spokesperson for the CDC, told the Washington Examiner. “Working with near real-time data in an emergency is critical to guide decision-making, but may also mean we often have incomplete information when data are first reported.”

The CDC has encountered other issues with data reporting before. The agency was criticized in February after The New York Times reported that a large portion of the data being collected by the agency regarding COVID-19 was not being made available to the public. Earlier this year, Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted that hospitalization data for kids could also be misleading, as many of the children hospitalized with COVID-19 were there for reasons other than the virus.

I heard Dr. Birx state on TV that they were counting as a COVID death anyone who died while having COVID, regardless of what the actual proximate cause was. So we’ll probably never know how many actual deaths were due to COVID.

really? No big surprise. They have been lying ever since Covid started. Wake up all you on the left. Why do you think more people won’t get the shot.
