New data from National Center of Health Statistics (NCHS) was just published on the Center for Disease Control (CDC) website showing the ages of all those who have died from COVID-19, and the breakdown of those people who had underlying medical conditions (comorbidities), as officially coded on death certificates.
Americans under the age of 18 represent a combined .002% of the total 164,186 COVID-19 deaths in the United States. Americans over the age of 75 represented 58% of all COVID-19 related deaths. Only 3% of Americans who have died from COVID-19 are under the age of 44 years old.
According to the new NCHS data, 9,683 people have died in the United States with COVID-19 only coded on their death certificate. This represented a mere 6% of the total 164,186 COVID-19 deaths. The CDC posted the following:
“Table 3 shows the types of health conditions and contributing causes mentioned in conjunction with deaths involving coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.” Center for Disease Control, screenshot
With an average of 2.6 comorbidities per death, Respiratory Diseases continue to outnumber the total COVID-19 deaths. This is because some amount of total COVID-19 deaths are coded with more than one Respiratory Disease (e.g., Influenza/pneumonia and respiratory failure). Circulatory Diseases is the second leading comorbidity with 68.3% of the total COVID-19 deaths. Diabetes is third with 16% of all COVID-19 deaths in the United States.
While the American public is being told there is a “national pandemic” and “healthcare crisis” in America due to COVID-19, the data reveals the actual statistical risk is concentrated to Americans age 65 and older with an existing respiratory disease, circulatory disease or diabetes. Only 6% of the total 164,186 Americans were coded as “COVID-19 only” deaths on their death certificate. It remains concerning why such a meaningful data point and the reality that most people die from a serious medical condition (respiratory disease, cardiac disease and diabetes) is so highly underreported in major media when discussing COVID-19.
The real healthcare crisis in American remains an aging, sick baby boomer population, a generation of Millennials unable to pay for their rising expenses and costs during a mass economic shutdown, and the growing mental health crisis across the country by those economically impacted by the continued national shutdown.
The data shows that children die so infrequently from COVID-19 — with less than 1% of all COVID-19 deaths being coded for those 18 years or younger — that the CDC considers the amount of deaths for Children from COVID-19 to be “0%.” Yet, the race for a COVID-19 vaccine for children continues.
America now has front row seats to see how the COVID-19 vaccine is being manufactured and tested. We will soon see how the COVID-19 vaccine is distributed to a sick population unaware of the risks associated with an extremely expedited vaccine development and testing timeline using new bio-technology.
In God we trust. All others bring data.
