The big question answered for the US
April 9th, 2020 by Ken Hagler

As it turns out, some­body did ask the ques­tion about whether US COVID-19 death totals were accu­rate. The word­ing of the ques­tion makes it clear that the reporter was wor­ried that they weren’t being inflat­ed, but at least it was asked. From the tran­script of a White House press brief­ing:

There are oth­er coun­tries that if you had a pre-exist­ing con­di­tion and let’s say the virus caused you to go to the ICU and then have a heart or kid­ney prob­lem — some coun­tries are record­ing that as a heart issue or a kid­ney issue and not a COVID-19 death.

Right now, we’re still record­ing it, and we’ll — I mean, the great thing about hav­ing forms that come in and a form that has the abil­i­ty to mark it as COVID-19 infec­tion — the intent is, right now, that those — if some­one dies with COVID-19, we are count­ing that as a COVID-19 death.

Dr. Deb­o­rah Birx

No, I can’t imag­ine if some­one comes in with coro­n­avirus, goes to an ICU, and they have an under­ly­ing heart con­di­tion and they die — they’re going to say, “Cause of death: heart attack.” I — I can­not see that — that hap­pen­ing. So I don’t think it’s going to be a prob­lem.

Dr. Antho­ny Fau­ci
