    One million Americans have now died from the coronavirus, according to an announcement made Thursday by President Joe Biden, marking a long-dreaded milestone for an incomprehensible tragedy. "Today, we mark a tragic milestone: one million American lives lost to COVID-19. One million empty chairs around the dinner table. Each an irreplaceable loss. Each leaving behind a family, a community, and a nation forever changed because of this pandemic. Jill and I pray for each of them," Biden said in a statement. "As a nation, we must not grow numb to such sorrow. To heal, we must remember."

    Vladimir Putin has declared that all military deaths will be classified as state secrets not just in times of war but also in peace – a move that activists worry might further discourage the reporting of Russian soldiers’ deaths in Ukraine.The Russian president has amended a decree to extend the list of state secrets to include information on casualties during special operations when war has not been declared, among other changes...Rights advocate Valentina Melnikova, secretary of the Union of Soldiers’ Mothers Committees, said the decree simply legalised the common practice of withholding information on all military losses, which had been...

    Changes defintiion of COVID death from ‘with COVID’ to ‘by COVID’.The Italian Higher Institute of Health has drastically reduced the country’s official COVID death toll number by over 97 per cent after changing the definition of a fatality to someone who died from COVID rather than with COVID.Italian newspaper Il Tempo reports that the Institute has revised downward the number of people who have died from COVID rather than with COVID from 130,000 to under 4,000.“Yes, you read that right. Turns out 97.1% of deaths hitherto attributed to Covid were not due directly to Covid,” writes Toby Young.Of the of...
  • Communist Death Count vs. Capitalist Death Count: An Apple-to-Apple Comparison

    It’s mind-blowing, but communist apologists still argue that capitalism’s death count equals communism’s. Here’s a challenge to any communist out there. For a true, apple-to-apple comparison, break it down to 20th Century peacetime demographics. No wars. Just two co-existing systems of government. Linked, you’ll see the communist death count. There is no capitalist count.

    The death toll in Thursday’s terrorist attack in Kabul, Afghanistan, rose overnight, and more than 200 people are now believed dead from a suicide bombing near Hamid Karzai International Airport, where many were desperately trying to escape the country on final evacuation flights. Although the Pentagon initially said there were two explosions, they walked back the claim Friday afternoon and said it was only one. “The death toll in a pair of suicide bombings that rocked Kabul yesterday has now risen to nearly 200 on Friday as evacuation flights remain ongoing,” Fox News reported early Friday. “169 Afghans were killed...

    he death toll from yesterday’s suicide bombings at the Kabul airport have now risen to 170 people, according to CBS News: Here’s more: Evacuation flights resumed on Friday at Kabul’s airport, less than a day after 13 American service members and scores of Afghans were killed in suicide bombings claimed by the ISIS faction in Afghanistan. There were warnings from military officials that more attacks could target the airport, and that the risk of them was increasing amid the rush to get hundreds of Americans, and as many vulnerable Afghans as possible out of the country.

Remains of the latest victim, Estelle Hedaya, 54, were found by search teams on July 20, and medical examiners had been working since then to positively identify her before making Monday's announcement, authorities said at a news conference.

    The death toll has climbed in the central China city of Zhengzhou as it grapples with the aftermath of flooding, pumping water from tunnels, thick mud on roads, and cleaning up debris. More questions over the authorities’ preparedness have been raised on China’s social media.Twelve million people in Zhengzhou city experienced severe rainfall since Saturday, and the city saw record-breaking downpour between 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time on Tuesday, with more than 201 mm (8 inches) in one hour, according to the meteorological authority.The water on the street was almost waist high on Tuesday afternoon, but subways kept...

    Johannesburg: Stores and warehouses in South Africa were hit by looters on Tuesday for a fifth day running despite a move by President Cyril Ramaphosa to deploy troops in a bid to quell unrest that has claimed 72 lives. As large-scale pillaging erupted in the economic capital of Johannesburg and southeastern province of KwaZulu-Natal, the crisis burst into the political arena, where South Africa’s main opposition accused radicals of stoking the unrest. The armed forces were sending 2,500 soldiers to help the police, who have been utterly overwhelmed. But these numbers are dwarfed by the more than 70,000 troops deployed...

    How Many Really Died from COVID? Another Damn Thing We Have to Be Concerned About We thought we’d gone genuinely crazy last year, when we found ourselves having to explain the difference between “died from COVID” and “died with COVID.”Died from meant the victim died from a particularly nasty respiratory bug that compelling evidence indicates escaped (or was released) from (after having been enhanced by) the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Communist China.Died with meant you could have died from anything — up to and including getting in a motorcycle crash — while having a Wuhan infection of any severity,...

    CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester explains the logic behind his network’s COVID-19 death toll counter in a sting video Project Veritas released on Wednesday. CNN has capitalized on “panic porn” during the pandemic, promoting fear in a way that Chester said bumps up ratings. “COVID? Gangbusters with ratings, right? Which is why we [CNN] constantly have the [COVID-19] death toll on the side, which I have a major problem with – with how we’re tallying how many people die every day,” Chester says in the video. He explains a perverse incentive regarding the numbers. “Like, why isn’t it high...

    China’s state-run media announced on Feb. 19 that four Chinese soldiers died at Galwan Valley, an India–China border region, in a violent face-off on June 15, 2020, while an Indian officer said China’s death toll was 45. It was the first deadly clash on the China–India border in the past four decades. After the bloody fight, India announced that 20 soldiers had died and honored them several times. China didn’t announce any deaths for eight months, until Feb. 19. China and India had troops in a standoff for months at multiple locations along the disputed China–India border in the Ladakh...

    The U.S. death toll from the coronavirus quietly surpassed 200,000 on Tuesday, less than eight months after the first American fatality. The U.S. reached 100,000 deaths in May. Now, some experts estimate the death toll could almost double by year's end. Fatigue for social distancing and the push to get back into offices and schools could fuel new cases – and deaths – in the coming weeks and months. Experts at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington predict 378,321 deaths by Jan. 1.

    2 HOURS AGO · PUBLIC I get so tired of these sleazy know-nothing "reporters" like the New York Times clown Tiffany Hsu. The CDC data is clear. I did not make it up. It states that 6% of the now over 200,000 of those who died of the coronavirus died just from the virus, while 94% had comorbidities -- that is, 94% had life-threatening underlying issues such as severe heart disease, diabetes, etc. (The list of comorbidities is also provided by the CDC.) Obviously, 200,000 individuals did not die solely or even primarily from the coronavirus, but some subset of...

    State health leaders listed him as the youngest Oregonian to die from COVID-19, but it turns out 26-year-old Matthew Irvin of Yamhill County didn’t have the virus when he died in July. Family members of Irvin told FOX 12 they’ve been fighting for answers since their son died in his home. New testing conducted by the CDC confirmed Irvin did not have the coronavirus when he died, according to his parents. The Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office said Irvin’s sample sent to the CDC tested negative for COVID-19. The family said back in July, Irvin became very sick and went...

    CBS News via MSN ^ | 07/22/2020
    Swedish health officials said Tuesday that at least another 3,000 deaths from the coronavirus are likely in the country, known for its controversial softer approach to curbing the spread and much higher death toll than its neighbors. The projection comes from one of three potential scenarios presented in a report from the country's Public Health Agency on Tuesday. In the worst scenario, where COVID-19 was expected to follow a traditional pandemic trajectory, over 4,400 more deaths related to the virus could follow. That would nearly double the 5,646 deaths, out of 78,166 confirmed cases, that have been recorded since the...

    By all accounts, Sweden's high rate of coronavirus deaths was evidence that the country had made a horrendous error. Sweden — which did not impose a strict lockdown — suffered 543 deaths per million of its population, compared to just 105 in neighboring Denmark. The Swedish death toll has been roughly 11 times worse than Norway's, on a per capita basis. Yet coronavirus deaths in Sweden have fallen dramatically in recent days, and are now approaching zero. Between June 30 and July 6, Sweden recorded fewer than five deaths per day on all days but one. The decline in newly...

    The daily number of deaths from the coronavirus has risen recently in some of the nation’s most populous states, leaving behind grieving families and signaling a possible end to months of declining death totals nationally. In Texas, officials announced 119 deaths Wednesday, surpassing a daily record for deaths in the pandemic that the state had set only a day earlier. In Arizona, more than 200 deaths have been announced already this week, and the daily virus death toll in the state reached higher than ever. Mississippi, Florida and Tennessee also set single-day death records this week. Among those who died...
