99% of ‘Covid Deaths’ Not Primarily Caused by the Virus, CDC Data Shows

Nearly 99 percent of ‘Covid deaths’ reported by the CDC each week are not primarily caused by the virus, official data shows.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Covid dashboard shows just 1.7 percent of the 324 Covid deaths registered in the week ending August 19 had the coronavirus as the primary cause of death.

The figures indicate just a handful of victims included in the weekly figure were actually killed by Covid. For comparison, the virus was behind one in three ‘Covid deaths’ at America’s pandemic peak in 2021.

The primary or underlying cause of death is defined as the disease, situation or event that initiated the chain of events directly resulting in death.

Complications of the primary cause of death are usually considered secondary causes when doctors register a death certificate.

For example, Covid could be listed as a secondary cause of death when the virus puts too much stress on a person with a pre-existing heart condition.

The primary cause of death would be listed as heart disease, with Covid listed as a contributing cause.

The percentage of Covid deaths in the week ending Aug. 19 represents a slight increase from the previous week and continues a five-week upward trend, but is a drastic decline from the peak of the pandemic, when 30 percent of deaths listed Covid as the primary cause.

While the CDC has not reported what the primary cause of death was in cases where Covid was the secondary factor, separate data from the agency shows thus far in August, the largest cause of death in the US has been cancer, followed by diseases of the heart.

Covid data shows Washington, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, Maryland and New York all have higher rates of deaths due to Covid. Maryland and Florida have the highest, at 3.4 percent.

Washington, Tennessee, North Carolina and New York all hover around 2 percent.

More than two dozen states have experienced just one to nine deaths due to Covid in the week ending on Aug. 19

Data also shows the death rate is slightly higher among women than men, and death rates are highest in people 75 years and older.

The new Covid data will be reassuring at a time when panic is rising across the US as highly transmissible new Covid variants circulate, leading to more infections and hospitalizations and causing the reimplementation of some Covid mandates.

New variants EG.5, or Eris, and BA.8.26, or Pirola, have been detected in several countries around the globe and in the US recently.

These variants are highly mutated and thought to be better at avoiding vaccine and natural immunity, causing more infections.

Infections appear to have doubled across the US amid the emergence of these variants and hospital admissions among people with the virus have risen for the fifth week in a row – but still remain at near-historic lows.

Crucially, however, Covid deaths are not rising quickly.

The panic about a Covid upswing last week saw the Hollywood movie studio Lionsgate reinforce mask mandates, asking its employees to don face coverings at its Santa Monica, California offices. However, just several days later, the movie studio reversed its decision.

Rutgers University in New Jersey and Morris Brown College in Georgia, both announced last week face masks will once again be required for staff and students.

Additionally, Kaiser Permanente hospital in Santa Rosa, California, and Upstate Community Hospital in Syracuse, New York, have both brought back mask mandates for doctors, nurses, patients and visitors.

Last week in Kentucky, the Lee County School District canceled classes less than two weeks after opening because nearly one-fifth of its students were out sick with a ‘tripledemic’ illness, including Covid, strep throat and the flu.

On Friday, President Biden said his administration will ‘likely’ recommend Americans receive another Covid booster vaccine in the coming weeks.

He signed a proposal on Friday asking Congress for more funding to update Covid vaccines to better protect against the new variants.

However, there is little interest among Americans to receive boosters and only 18 percent of eligible Americans have received any version of a booster.

    CDC is just another arm of the communist that are running our country

  • DDearborn says:


    The government lied about COVID-19 literally from day 1 (they massively overstated the number of deaths caused by COVID-19 in order to create a false flag “pandemic”)

    The government lied about the effectiveness of masks to prevent transmission of COVID-19 since day 1. (work for only short periods of time, and only under ideal environmental environments like operating rooms. Any mask of any kind in infectious environment removed by the wearer and then returned to the face contaminates the user unless it is decontaminated first. Paper masks can’t be decontaminated effectively)
    The US Army did exhaustive research on paper masks and found them ineffective against airborne contagions like COVID-19 decades earlier…

    The CDC/FDA were forced to literally re-write the definition of a “vaccine” in the days before their unleashing them on the public because NONE OF THE COVID-19 SHOTS ACTUALLY PREVENT COVID-19 OR ITS TRANSMISSION!!!

    This phony “admission” by the CDC has been done in a transparent attempt to reinforce the fiction that somehow the covid-19 SHOTS are actually working as a “vaccine” when in fact they are NOT!

    So who exactly were the US government leaders responsible for all these lies and possibly all the related deaths and the complete destruction of our economy and our currency in 2020-23? The key co-conspirators below directly involved at the very top of the COVID-19 phony Pandemic have 2 FACTS common: they are all Jewish and they all have VERY close ties to israel…

    CDC Director: Rochelle P. Walensky
    CDC Deputy Director: Anne Schuchat
    CDC Chief of Staff: Sherri A. Berger
    CDC Chief Medical officer: Mitchell Wolfe
    CDC Director Washington office: Jeff Reczek
    CDC Czar: Jeff Zients
    CDC Senior Advisor: Andy Slavitt
    HHS Secretary : Xavier Becerra
    HHS Asst Secretary: Rachel Levine (yes she is a man pretending to be a women)
    Pfizer’s CEO: Albert Bourla
    Mdoerna’s CEO: Stephan Bancel
    Johnson & Johnson CEO: Alex Gorsky
    Regeneron CEO: Len Schleifler
    COVID-19 task force leader: Jared Kushner – first week in charge shipped 1 million masks to israel…

    The Israeli government publicly announced their production ready version of worlds first 1st COVID-19 vaccine in April of 2020 less than 2 months after it was officially isolated in a lab… (literally impossible without prior knowledge and access to COVID-19. The public announcement was quickly buried by the international media)

    It turns out that not only did the US have literally dozens and dozens of illegal bio-weapons labs in the Ukraine, Israel had at least 3 illegal labs of their own. Israel appear to have been working on COVID-19 in the Ukraine for years prior to its being released on the world in 2019. Rumor has long held that Israel has been busy for decades trying to make a bio-weapon to wipe out the Palestinians without killing all the Jews along with them….The US also had a massive bio-lab in Wuhan China working on COVID-19 long before it was officially “isolated” in 2020


    Here is one of those smoking guns: COVID-19 DNA Linked to Moderna Patent Filed in 2016 which was the basis for their so called “Vaccine”.
