Skip to comments.Massive spike in reported increase of COVID-19 deaths was skewed by old data

A massive 300 percent hike in nationwide COVID-19 deaths recorded Friday by Johns Hopkins University was skewed by states dumping data – that in one case dated back as far as last spring, according to a report.
The university, which has been a trusted source of coronavirus information since the start of the pandemic, reported that US deaths surged from 321 on Thursday to 891 on Friday, as the Delta variant quickly spreads throughout much of the country.
Florida was responsible for a huge chunk of the increase, with 409 of Friday’s death toll coming from that state, according to The Daily Mail. However, Florida only releases weekly data on Friday, making the day-to-day totals reported by the university unclear and overblown, the outlet said.
Figures released by Delaware also added to the surging daily increase, as that state announced 130 new deaths Friday, the tabloid reported. The dramatic figure was misleading because those deaths actually occurred between mid-May 2020 and late last month, and were added after The First State reviewed death certificates, according to the article.
Data from Michigan, which only releases statistics biweekly, also reportedly added to the distorted total.
The true day-to-day increase of nationwide COVID-19 deaths was actually only 2.5 percent, according to the outlet.

So they lied. Hmm..
Data dump = a sack of 5hit.
CoupFlu stats have always been crap.
Lies, lies and more lies.
Now I don’t know what to believe if the topic is COVID.
This is what happened with the topic of Climate Change and Global Warming. I lot of professionals straight up LIED to the public in order to produce a desired result.
Rarely have they been called out and penalized for this misinformation.
Similar to the 3:00am ballot dump?
More GIGO related to this so-called “pandemic”. Surprise!!! When will people finally realize that Gov’t simply cannot be trusted? Leftists Pollute every aspect of Gov’t with their Socialist, control-driven agenda. Nothing is off-limits to them in their desire to control every aspect of our lives. Fear and division are their modus operandi. Has been for decades.
Covid. Climate Change. Global Warming.
All just a means to the totalitarian ends.
lies lies and more lies.....
The data is certainly dated, and should have been aggregated accordingly.
Deliberate and people should be swinging.
There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics.
With anything Covid related we have a frickin’ trifecta.
Once things like “COVID” or “Climate Change” become an industry, with people heavily-invested, both financially and politically, on either side of the issue, you know you won’t find “truth” anywhere.
Justice is turned back,
And righteousness stands afar off;
For truth is fallen in the street....Isaiah 59:14
They never tell the truth if a lie will serve.
In both cases the count reflected dead people...
They will tell a lie even when the truth better serves!
Kind of like everything they have said about covid has been skewed.
