CDC: Only 5% of COVID Deaths are Solely from COVID

By Doug Newman – email me
Here I am on Facebook.

In January, CDC stated, for the second time, that only 6 percent of COVID deaths were from COVID alone. As of April 21, 2021, that number is 5 percent.

As of April 28, 2021, Worldometer reports that 588,337 Americans had died of COVID. 5 percent of that number is 29,417. This makes it less deadly than the seasonal flu. And when you consider that this number is over 14 months, that means that 25,214 died solely of COVID. That means that if you are otherwise healthy, you have a 1 in 13,127 chance of dying of COVID.

Now go live your life.

About Food for the Thinkers

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding. Check out my old page at And remember: When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. But when you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.

    The problem here of course, is that ‘Murikans would actually have to A) Distrust the narrative enough to consider independent research
    B) Do some independent research
    C) Think for themselves, ie: properly interpret the readily available data from the research
    D) Have the minerals to ‘live their lives’ in a manner that corresponds to their findings.
    This will never happen.
