Current U.S. Death total as of Wednesday night: 93,406


And meanwhile the death toll just keeps rising.

Trump World never stops trying to find scapegoats for their hero and idol in the WhiteHouse. In their alternate reality bubble, Trump is never held accountable for anything negative.

Many of those Covid19 deaths were due to blue states mismanagement putting those frail (tested positive) individuals in nursing homes to contaminate others.

Sounds like another case of the unsolved murder by 10,000 needles, where the investigator pulls out a needle, says "this little thing could never have killed him", tosses it away and pulls another needle to examine.

 

Thing is, there's seldom a SINGLE "cause of death" from any serious disease as the disease will ravage many vital systems before the patient expires. Thing is, WITHOUT Covid19 exacerbating those "other causes" would THEY have killed the patient? Seems doubtful.

 

Also sounds like people trying to make "opening for business" seem more reasonable as the daily toll of Americans dying from Covid19 continues to increase.

Did Colorado's coronavirus death toll really just drop by nearly 300? Here's what changed.

Fort Collins Coloradoan Published 4:23 p.m. MT May 16, 2020

Colorado health officials on Friday changed how they count the number of people lost to the coronavirus outbreak in the state.

As a result, the state's stated COVID-19 death toll dropped by nearly 300 people who had contracted the virus but died of other causes that may or may not have been related to infection.

On Thursday, Colorado reported 1,091 coronavirus deaths under its prior method. But on Friday, the state clarified that 878 people have died as a direct result of COVID-19 infection as of May 9, while another 272 had tested positive but died of other causes as of Friday.

In a Friday afternoon news conference, Rachel Herlihy, the state epidemiologist, apologized for confusion about how coronavirus deaths are counted. She said the state would begin reporting the number of deaths where COVID-19 is believed to be a contributing factor, in addition to total coronavirus case deaths, the larger number.

Up until Friday, the state’s numbers didn’t note the distinction.

Colorado reported its first coronavirus death on March 13, but its method of counting coronavirus deaths as anyone who died while infected came under scrutiny Thursday when Montezuma County Coroner George Deavers disputed the state's inclusion of a death reported on May 4th.

Deavers told 9News that the 35-year-old man did test positive for COVID-19, but blood work showed he died of "ethanol toxicity," which Deavers signed as the man's official cause of death.

As of Friday’s clarifying count, COVID-19 was identified as a contributing factor in 76% of all of Colorado’s coronavirus case deaths.

 

Pa. health department revises coronavirus death toll to 1,421, dropping 201 probable deaths

 

Pennsylvania Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine said Thursday the state is dropping its coronavirus death toll, saying some probable deaths have been removed.

In her news conference Thursday, Levine said there are now 1,421 total deaths related to COVID-19, a drop of 201 from yesterday’s total. Levine said further review has revealed the health department needs more information before attributing some probable deaths to COVID-19. In a press release earlier Thursday, the department said there were 1,394 confirmed cases.

“This verification process is very intensive," Levine said of probable deaths. “In normal circumstances, it can take months to investigate.”

She added, “As we know, these are not normal circumstances.”

On Wednesday, the state said there were 1,622 confirmed and probable deaths.

Levine said confirmed cases and death refer to individuals who have had a positive test for the coronavirus. Levine has said probable cases involve those who displayed symptoms or had an exposure to the virus but there isn’t a positive test offering confirmation.

 

Not great news but maybe the other 48 states need to take a long look at their reporting also and come up with a realistic verifiable number. I've heard that same response confidentiality from friends working in the health care field here in Arizona also, if they test positive for exposure to Covid-19 then the official cause of death is the virus.
