Is There Something Wrong with This Picture?

The CDC says that 23,000 Americans have died from the flu since last September.  Yawn.  Ho hum.

Around 6 PM today the TV news cited another CDC statistic that 400 Americans have died from the coronavirus.  Emergency!  Suspend the Constitution — Permanently!  Declare Martial Law!  Stop the economy — Now!!  Stay in the house — or else!  Shut up and take your Masters’ orders!  Rev up the printing presses!  Call out the National Guard!  Imprison all dissenters!!

Here’s another interesting tidbit:  The Italian version of the CDC says that just under 50% of those who had “died from the coronavirus” had at least three pre-existing diseases such as cancer, heart disease, lung disease, etc. The average age of such Italian disease victims is 80.5.  Around 25% had at least two such diseases.  Nevertheless, they are claiming that they died from coronavirus alone.  0.8% of Italians who died from the coronavirus had no pre-existing serious diseases.
