- The Facts:Dr. Ngozi Ezike, Director of the Illinois Department of Public Health, recently stated that, even if it’s clear one died of an alternative cause, their death will still be marked as a COVID death.
- Reflect On:Are COVID-19 deaths being miscalculated? Are the numbers inflated, or the opposite?
We live in a world full of conflicting information, not to mention a digital authoritarian “fact-checker” that is labelling news that is well sourced as “false” if it’s a narrative that seems to threaten the one that’s beamed out by mainstream media. Not only is information being heavily censored these days, but so are opinions. One example I recently wrote about was Dr. Ron Paul, who had his opinion on the coronavirus pandemic deemed “fake.” How can an opinion be fake? What’s really going on here? Why are independent media outlets, like Collective Evolution, being censored, demonetized and flagged? Why are people like Julian Assange in jail?

When it comes to the deaths that have been caused by COVID-19, mainstream media points out that “Many experts believe the number of deaths linked to the novel coronavirus in the U.S. is likely higher than the figures available — due to factors such as an insufficient number of tests and inconsistent reporting across locales.”
According to Factcheck.org, “One Facebook user has claimed the opposite, erroneously suggesting the count is being inflated by unrelated deaths, and copies of that claim have gone viral on the social media platform” and the idea that deaths are being miscalculated and in the opposite direction of what mainstream media is claiming, is false.
