Skip to comments.CNN Analyst Slammed After Writing COVID Deaths Are Being Overcounted: ‘TWO AND A HALF YEARS LATE’

CNN medical analyst and Washington Post columnist Dr. Leana Wen admitted in a column, Friday, that the medical community is “overcounting” the amount of “COVID deaths and hospitalizations.”
Wen, who writes an occasional Washington Post column providing her observations on the pandemic, masking and other COVID-related subjects, cited sources claiming that most “patients diagnosed with COVID are actually in the hospital for some other illness.” The article is titled, “We are overcounting COVID deaths and hospitalizations. That’s a problem." Wen’s observations prompted readers on Twitter to complain, stating that it’s “two and a half years late.”
Wen began her column with some apparent skepticism about the CDC’s latest COVID-19 death stats: “According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the United States is experiencing around 400 COVID deaths every day. At that rate, there would be nearly 150,000 deaths a year. But are these Americans dying from COVID or with COVID?”

LOL- of course its a problem- now. But during year one over counting deaths and hospitalizations was applauded and advocated.
Wen is the former head of Planned Parenthood who was forced to step down by PP after publicly saying that she wanted what was best for women’s health.

Just a wee bit. Or so...
Will hospitals need to reimburse the government for all the erroneous COVID-19 “cases” they had?
So....they are going to issue an apology to everyone who said this 2 years ago and was savagely attacked as anti science and conspiracy theorists right?
Pretty soon SeeBS fake news will report it
I had covid Last Summer it was only two days of fever and then it was over, unfortunately I did not drink enough water when I had the fever and passed out from dehydration, ended up in the in the hospital overnight. I am sure they considered that a covid hospitalization. And since I am not vaxxed it was an unvaxxed hospitalization.
biden keeps extending the emergency
so are the hospitals still getting a bonus?
The death penalty is not enough for these people. How many lives have they ruined?
Consequence of paying gubmint bounties for reporting China-cooties.
Follow the money.
Poor pathetic woman. Hopefully, this is the beginning of her awakening from the trance of Marxist ideology.
We knew about the Covid over counting from day one. It was done on purpose to generate a panic to justify the draconian lock downs, masking and vax mandates. The vast spending. The social credit system. Vax passports. The loss of individual liberty. Those of us who saw through the 7x24 fear propaganda should really be proud of ourselves. The fear crippled a lot of people.
Wen , Wen will they learn?
I wish there was a like button!
