Remember the newborn in CT who supposedly died of coronavirus?
Testing confirmed last night that the newborn was COVID-19 positive. This is absolutely heartbreaking. We believe this is one of the youngest lives lost anywhere due to complications relating to COVID-19. https://twitter.com/GovNedLamont/status/1245429680095793153?s=19
The case is actually being investigated by the state police as a possible crime. There’s absolutely zero data supporting the possibility that this is a COVID death.
Many deaths are being counted as COVID because the dead person tests positive for the virus. As we know, the overwhelming majority of people infected are asymptomatic. They can still die of other causes, though.
There’s evidence of a sustained effort by state governors to present every death as COVID-related by inflating death stats and changing coding practices. The governor of CT freaked out crowds of parents for nothing.
