CDC Director Compares Rate of Suicides to COVID-19 Deaths

Lockdown kills more than Covid

Roughly 146,000 people have died from COVID or COVID-related causes in the U.S., according to CDC data.

The most recent publicized federal data records 48,000 deaths from suicide and at least 1.4 million attempts in 2018. In 2019, almost 71,000 people died from drug overdoses.

Nonpharmaceutical Measures for Pandemic Influenza in Nonhealthcare Settings—Personal Protective and Environmental Measures

In this review, we did not find evidence to support a protective effect of personal protective measures or environmental measures in reducing influenza transmission.

Disposable medical masks (also known as surgical masks) are loose-fitting devices that were designed to be worn by medical personnel to protect accidental contamination of patient wounds, and to protect the wearer against splashes or sprays of bodily fluids (36). There is limited evidence for their effectiveness in preventing influenza virus transmission either when worn by the infected person for source control or when worn by uninfected persons to reduce exposure. Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.

We did not consider the use of respirators in the community. Respirators are tight-fitting masks that can protect the wearer from fine particles (37) and should provide better protection against influenza virus exposures when properly worn because of higher filtration efficiency. However, respirators, such as N95 and P2 masks, work best when they are fit-tested, and these masks will be in limited supply during the next pandemic. These specialist devices should be reserved for use in healthcare settings or in special subpopulations such as immunocompromised persons in the community, first responders, and those performing other critical community functions, as supplies permit.

CDC- Coronavirus Alert 2- Barnhardt

The CDC’s Full Document Explaining Coding For CoronaCold-19

COVID-19 Alert No. 2   March 24, 2020    New ICD code introduced for COVID-19 deaths

This email is to alert you that a newly-introduced ICD code has been implemented to accurately capture mortality data for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) on death certificates.

Please read carefully and forward this email to the state statistical staff in your office who are involved in the preparation of mortality data, as well as others who may receive questions when the data are released.

What is the new code?   The new ICD code for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is U07.1, and below is how it will appear in formal tabular list format.

  • U07.1 COVID-19   Excludes: Coronavirus infection, unspecified site (B34.2)
  • Severe acute respiratory syndrome [SARS], unspecified (U04.9)
  • The WHO has provided a second code, U07.2, for clinical or epidemiological diagnosis of COVID-19 where a laboratory confirmation is inconclusive or not available. Because laboratory test results are not typically reported on death certificates in the U.S., NCHS is not planning to implement U07.2 for mortality statistics.
  • When will it be implemented? Immediately.
  • Will COVID-19 be the underlying cause?   The underlying cause depends upon what and where conditions are reported on the death certificate. However, the rules for coding and selection of the underlying cause of death are expected to result in COVID- 19 being the underlying cause more often than not.
  • What happens if certifiers report terms other than the suggested terms?  If a death certificate reports coronavirus without identifying a specific strain or explicitly specifying that it is not COVID-19, NCHS will ask the states to follow up to verify whether or not the coronavirus was COVID-19. As long as the phrase used indicates the 2019 coronavirus strain, NCHS expects to assign the new code. However, it is preferable and more straightforward for certifiers to use the standard terminology (COVID-19).
  • What happens if the terms reported on the death certificate indicate uncertainty?   If the death certificate reports terms such as “probable COVID-19” or “likely COVID-19,” these terms would be assigned the new ICD code. It Is not likely that NCHS will follow up on these cases.
  • If “pending COVID-19 testing” is reported on the death certificate, this would be considered a pending record. In this scenario, NCHS would expect to receive an updated record, since the code will likely result in R99. In this case, NCHS will ask the states to follow up to verify if test results confirmed that the decedent had COVID- 19.
  • Do I need to make any changes at the jurisdictional level to accommodate the new ICD code?   Not necessarily, but you will want to confirm that your systems and programs do not behave as if U07.1 is an unknown code.​
  • Should “COVID-19” be reported on the death certificate only with a confirmed test?   COVID-19 should be reported on the death certificate for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death. Certifiers should include as much detail as possible based on their knowledge of the case, medical records, laboratory testing, etc. If the decedent had other chronic conditions such as COPD or asthma that may have also contributed, these conditions can be reported in Part II.

And when there are no mountains of bodies, and when the numbers show that even with the book-cooking of attributing EVERY POSSIBLE DEATH to CoronaCold even if the CoronaCold was a non-lethal, merely co-present Hospital Acquired Infection (I wonder if every cadaver is now ALSO being tested for H1N1 seasonal flu, Norovirus, Staphylococcus Aurea or Klebsiella pneumoniae – ah, of course not) turns out to be LESS than seasonal flu, I can PROMISE YOU the both the Freemasonic NewWorldOrder, the Antichurch, and every psycho-spiritually ill cat lady with a standing scrip for Xanax and Prozac will BELLOW at one and all that WE ARE JUST THREE WEEKS AWAY FOR DOOOOOOOM and YOU ARE A ****ING MURDERER IF YOU DON’T BARRICADE YOURSELF IN YOUR HOME AND… GIVE. ME. MONEY!  You ignorant rubes!  Don’t you understand that I am SAVING HUMANITY?
“Probable” or “likely” or “assumed to have caused” are not exact terms. The big one, it seems, is that if coronavirus “contributed to death”, then it is apparently tallied as a “death from coronavirus.”
This is a big deal. Death “caused by coronavirus” is not the same as “coronavirus contributed to death.” But they are all apparently being lumped into the same category.

CDC Petition

Fertility Awareness Based Methods are left out of women’s viable family planning options in large part because the information published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not accurately reflect effectiveness rates for individual FABMs based on the highest quality research. Since many health professionals and medical organizations rely on the CDC for accurate information, it is important that we ask the CDC to update its website with evidence-based data that shows the accurate effectiveness rates of modern FABMs for preventing pregnancy.

Correct information is KEY to helping women make their own informed choices about family planning methods.

That is why we are asking you urgently to sign the petition below. We need 100,000 signatures to convince the CDC to reconsider this crucial issue, and to get them to update their website.

    • 19% had drunk alcohol or used drugs before last sexual intercourse.
  • Less than 10% of all students have ever been tested for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
Sexual Risk Behaviors Can Lead to HIV, STDs, & Teen Pregnancy
  • Half of all new STDs reported each year are among young people 15 to 24.
  • More than 46% of sexually active high school students did not use a condom the last time they had sex.
Many Young People Engage in Sexual Risk Behaviors 
  • Many young people engage in sexual risk behaviors and experiences that can result in unintended health outcomes.
  • CDC data show that lesbian, gay, and bisexual high school students are at substantial risk for serious health outcomes as compared to their peers.

HIV- 21% of all new HIV diagnoses were among young people (aged 13-24) in 2017; 87% were young men and 13% were young women.2

STDs- Half of the 20 million new STDs reported each year were among young people (aged 15 to 24)3
