White House coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx is making waves this morning after conveying her distrust for the Center for Disease and Control and Prevention’s coronavirus mortality statistics, according to a new report.
During a meeting with the CDC director Robert Redfield, Birx expressed that she can’t trust the program’s statistics.
“There is nothing from the CDC that I can trust,” she said, according to the Washington Post.
According to the same report, Birx and others worry that the CDC’s numbers are inflated by 1/4th. If this is true, it lends support to a public notion that the government inflates death tolls to support continued hysteria. With millions of Americans losing employment and income weekly, such statements serve to feed the side that desires a quick end to draconian, universal shutdowns that plague our nation.
Additionally, Birx noted that “mortality is slowly declining each day.”
“To keep with this trend, it is essential that seniors and those with comorbidities shelter in place and that we continue to protect vulnerable communities,” she said.
Of course, the New York Times projects 3,000 deaths per day by June 1. The problem here is we are forced to wonder if death toll inflation is leveraged to help support these hysterical, doom, and gloom projections. When the salaciousness and fear-mongering attributes deaden, the public at large will be less prone to comply with local community shutdowns.
Many Americans are now ready to move on with normal life and return to their employment and summer ongoings. But state governments around the country continue to “phase-in” a reopen, which tends to result in unimpressive progress. The only way that governments can continue to keep a shutdown thriving is to fear-monger with death toll statistics. But if those statistics become untrustworthy, more people will go outside and see for themselves, if you catch my drift.
