A Pennsylvania coroner is calling shenanigans on coronavirus death counts in his county. But he also said he believes that statewide numbers are equally inflated.

Armstrong County Coroner says that he was forced to subpoena the state’s Dept. of Health over six coronavirus deaths. Coronavirus, as a cause of death, only remained on two after new information was made available.

He went on to say that there are “untruths” and “misleading statistics” released by the Dept. of Health.

The coroner is an elected official and as he notes, he “believes in transparency.” In this day and age, we should find solace in those who stand up and fight for the truth in numbers. He also believes that this is a statewide issue, noting that “I am positive that other counties are in the same position.” He opts out of diagnosing a potential motive for why coronavirus death totals are inflated.

Politicians continue to leverage coronavirus death numbers to keep Pennsylvanians out of work. So if the numbers are inflated, that means people are losing their income and isolating over a falsified data. If true, a great many people should be held accountable.
