Joe Biden is Asked About One Million American Covid Deaths. His Reaction Just Says It All.

    Joe Biden promised he would “end” Covid. Instead, despite having a Covid-19 vaccine inherited from the Trump administration, Biden wound up with more Americans’ lives ended with the coronavirus.

    On Monday, Biden attended the Presidential Rank Awards, which were given to 230 winners from 37 federal agencies in a virtual ceremony. At the end of the self-congratulatory ceremony, Biden refused to handle a question on the one million Covid-19 deaths that provide a painful reminder of the administration’s failure to “stop the spread.” Watch:

    “Do you plan to commemorate one million dead from Covid, sir?” the person misleadingly asked.

    Biden turned his back and walked away — an apt metaphor for the way that he has abandoned countless pledges during his presidential campaign. He also turned down a question on student debt.

    The CDC currently reports that there have been 990,208 “Covid deaths” in the United States as of April 27.

    In January, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky was confronted about Covid-related deaths reporting, which bears on the upcoming milestone of one million Americans having died from Covid.

    “Do you know, how many of the 836,000 deaths in the U.S. linked to COVID are from COVID or how many are with COVID, but they had other comorbidities. Do you have that breakdown?” Baier asked.

    “Yes, of course, with Omicron we’re following that very carefully,” she said. “Our death registry, of course, takes a few weeks… to collect. And of course, Omicron has just been with us for a few weeks, but those data will be forthcoming.”

    Dr. David Samadi commented on the development:

    “The CDC will begin to provide data on how many of the 836,000 deaths in the U.S. linked to Covid are FROM Covid and how many are WITH Covid,” he said. “I’ve been encouraging this from day one as it would have changed the entire perspective on the response. Glad it’s finally happening.”

    The CDC, however, has yet to officially announce or publicize a distinction in Covid-related and Covid-caused deaths.

    Distinguishing between those who died with Covid and from Covid is important for determining the true deadliness of a virus for healthy Americans. But in the U.S., nearly all of all-cause excess mortality has been attributed one way or another to Covid.

    As explained in a prior article, the CDC uses a statistical model to estimated Covid-related deaths in the United States. As we are now more than two years into the pandemic, it is time for the CDC to tidy its bookkeeping and set the record straight.
