Why COVID-19 Is Not the 3rd Leading Cause of Death
From Dr. Joseph Mercola
Since COVID-19 first entered the scene, exchange of ideas has basically been outlawed. By sharing my views and those from various experts throughout the pandemic on COVID treatments and the experimental COVID jabs, I became a main target of the White House, the political establishment and the global cabal.
Propaganda and pervasive censorship have been deployed to seize control over every part of your life, including your health, finances and food supply. The major media is a key player and has been instrumental in creating and fueling fear.
I am republishing this article in its original form so that you can see how the progression unfolded.
According to Dr. Thomas Frieden, former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, COVID-19 is now the third leading cause of death in the U.S., killing more Americans than “accidents, injuries, lung disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and many, many other causes.”1,2
This claim is said to be based on data from Johns Hopkins University which, at the time Frieden made that statement in August 2020, reported that about 170,000 of the 5.4 million Americans who had tested positive had died.3 At the time of this writing, Johns Hopkins reports4 the U.S. has recorded 7,916,099 positive tests and 216,872 COVID-19-related deaths.
