COVID deaths are added to the COVID daily counts not on the day they happen but on the day they are coded as COVID. Go to state records and you’ll see. I verified it for NY, MD, MI, and IL.
So how does this work in practice? A daily death count goes down. The state government finds some deaths from March or April that could have been COVID and adds them to today’s count. It doesn’t matter right now if those deaths were really COVID. What matters is that they are used to show that mortality doesn’t decrease.
This happened in Illinois this week. The death count was down. When it got to 76 (per the entire gigantic state), the governor’s office found a bunch of old deaths and added them in, creating “the deadliest day” of the pandemic.
Given that the Governor says he won’t let us out until there’s a week with zero deaths, this matters.
This is not a conspiracy of any sorts. It’s all done completely openly because the public is so incredibly gullible that it hears “the deadliest day” and it doesn’t verify. It simply gets terrified and sits there, busily resharing the “deadliest day” links.
This isn’t anything new because this is the same public that bought into the Russia collusion hoax, Ukraine hoax, fishtank Wanda hoax, etc.
