The renowned Johns Hopkins University published an article in which they were attempting to explain a study examining the effects of the novel coronavirus on United States death totals. They used data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
What happened next will probably not surprise most intelligent people.
Johns Hopkins assistant program director of the Applied Economics master’s degree program, Genevieve Briand determined, via CDC numbers that there were approximately 1.7 million deaths in the U.S. between March 2020 and September 2020. Of those deaths, she determined that approximately 12% (200,000) were determined by doctors and government bureaucrats to be coronavirus-related.
Briand hypothesizes that the only way to understand the significance of the U.S. coronavirus death rate is by comparing it to the number of total deaths in the United States. To do that she reviewed and compared the total deaths per age category from prior to and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
What did she find?
She found that the death rate of older people was the same before and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
