Since the very first outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, it's been suspected that the number of fatalities was being inflated; see, for example, the Trends Journal article of April 2020, "THE NUMBERS DON'T ADD UP."

Now comes an article from The New York Times, published on 15 July, that reports that half the U.S. states have been under-reporting COVID-related deaths. And the worst offender, by far, has been New York State.

As of 14 July, New York State's official COVID death toll stood at 43,000, compared to the 54,000 logged for the state by the National Center for Health Statistics, a sub-department of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And while other states, among them California and Texas, exhibit discrepancies between their own official numbers and those of the NCHS, none even approach the gap of 11,000 seen in New York.  

Another Cuomo Scandal? I'm Shocked, Shocked!

The article states that the NCHS's statistics are based on the death certificates it receives from the states, and NY State claims that its death certificates paint a true picture of the COVID death toll. But the article tells us that "probable" COVID-related deaths are not part of the data sent to the NCHS, which receives only NYS death certificates from victims with positive lab tests for COVID-19. And the NYT operates its own "virus tracker," which also puts the state's death toll significantly higher than what the state has reported.

These revelations will no doubt be considered by the NY State Assembly's Judiciary Committee, the NYS Attorney General and the federal investigators who are scrutinizing the various allegations against the governor, whose approval ratings have dropped precipitously and who is facing calls for his resignation or impeachment.

TRENDPOST: This latest round of frauds adds to the scandals surrounding New York's Governor Andrew Cuomo who is already under investigation for allegedly causing thousands of unnecessary COVID deaths in nursing homes, and for his efforts to obscure that death toll; see our September 2020 article, "CUOMO GETS INSPECTED." 

Cuomo has also been accused of a pattern of inappropriate behavior with various female aides (see our March 2021 article, "ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER CHARGE OF CUOMO HARASSMENT.")

But despite the high virus death rate and his other alleged inappropriate behavior, the mainstream media still champions Cuomo as a COVID winner and nothing has stopped him from writing and promoting a book about the masterful leadership he allegedly displayed in his policies for dealing with the virus, a book which garnered him $5 million and numerous accolades; see our December 2020 item, "CUOMO TO RECEIVE EMMY FOR HIS COVID TV SHOW."

    Doctors Raise Awareness on Ivermectin Treatment for COVID-19
    By Meiling Lee July 24, 2021 Updated: July 24, 2021

    In an effort to help end the pandemic, an international coalition of medical experts is holding worldwide events Saturday to raise awareness about the effectiveness of ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19.

    Organizers of the World Ivermectin Day say doctors and supporters of the inexpensive FDA-approved drug will host free online and public events in over a dozen countries.

    Two nonprofits—Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care (FLCCC) Alliance and the British Ivermectin Recommendation Development (BIRD) group—who have been campaigning for the off-label use of ivermectin to prevent and treat COVID-19 say the event’s focus is to let more people know that the antiparasitic drug can treat COVID-19, possibly end the pandemic, and help eliminate fear of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.

    “We have an incredibly positive and uplifting message to share: ivermectin treats and prevents COVID and it is the key to unlocking the never-ending cycle of pandemic peaks and personal restrictions and will help restart economies,” Dr. Tess Lawrie, cofounder of the BIRD group said in a press release.

    Lawrie is also a co-author of a peer-reviewed meta-analysis study published in the American Journal of Therapeutics that found ivermectin to be effective against COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP virus. Lawrie and her team concluded with a moderate level of confidence that ivermectin reduced the risk of death by an average of 62 percent, at a 95 percent confidence interval of 0.19-0.73, especially when prescribed early.
