Why do you guys in the media continue to spread unnecessary fear and hysteria by posting "daily covid deaths" without offering any other information about the people who died? Were they health challended? Obese? Did they have other contributing health circumstances? Something to bringl some clarity to the situation. We started out with "two weeks to slow the spread" to 18 months of catastrohy that is not justified given the fact that over half of the country is vaccinated from a virus that over 99% who get it get over it.

1% of 300 million Americans is 3 million dead Americans. Who cares if they are obese, does their life mean less than yours? Can't those people live productive meaningful lives? 145 people died of the flu in Georgia in 2018, we just passed 20,000 deaths in Georgia. I think the reporting is more than justified.

Come on man!! How many of these people actually died of Covid and NOT some other underlying condition. A friend of mine died of Cancer many years ago & his death certificate showed heart failure as the cause of death. Democrats enjoy this fear they have caused because it means easier control of the people for their Socialist/Communist agendas. Covid has turned out to be China's GIFT to the Democrats.........


Total US deaths of 643,871 as of today is much lower than 1%.
