In this clip, @JakeTapper is absolutely right that counting all people in the hospital WITH COVID as being there FOR COVID is wildly misleading — especially since it applies to close to 50% — but it’s so striking how many arguments that were long taboo are now all being aired.

Jake Tapper Rails Against ‚Misleading‘ CDC COVID Hospitalization Numbers

Tapper said: „We’re two years into this and we need the clearest picture possible if somebody is in the hospital with a broken leg and they also have asymptomatic COVID. That should not be counted as hospitalized with COVID, clearly.“

CNN anchor calls out CDC for ‚misleading‘ COVID hospitalization data, and Dr. Sanjay Gupta agrees

CNN anchor Jake Tapper and Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the network’s top medical correspondent, agreed Monday the method being used by the government to report COVID-19 hospitalizations is explicitly „misleading.“
What is the background?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which manages COVID data reporting, does not distinguish between people hospitalized for COVID (meaning complications from the virus caused them to be hospitalized) or people hospitalized with COVID (meaning people who test positive for COVID after being admitted for reasons unrelated to the virus).

CDC Director Walensky fails to disclose how many deaths were ‚from‘ COVID-19: ‚Data will be forthcoming‘

„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?“ Bret Baier asked Walensky on „Fox News Sunday.“

„Yes of course with omicron we’re following that very carefully,“ Walensky responded. „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.“

CDC director admits over 75% of Covid deaths had at least 4 pathological conditions (comorbidities).Since the total death rate is 0.27% this means healthy people have a 0.0% death risk.

CDC says fully vaccinated Americans can go outside without a mask

Some experts portrayed the relaxed guidance as a reward and a motivator for more people to get vaccinated — a message President Joe Biden sounded, too.

“The bottom line is clear: If you’re vaccinated, you can do more things, more safely, both outdoors as well as indoors,” Biden said.
