Look at this:

Texas on the week ending of the 28th August:

Reported COVID Deaths numbers (from the State)
1632500104940.png

This says the 7 day average on the date was 193. That would be 1,351 people died from COVID as the state reported...


CDC Excess Deaths numbers
1632500013527.png


This shows 2,486 more people died in Texas than expected... That is 62.2% higher than expected...

So 2,486 - 1,351 = 1,135...

That is a lot of people extra to die... We can also show the same in Florida with similar numbers...

Am i missing something here...

Can someone explain how all these people are dying from?

Why does it make a difference to you? Would any explanation make any difference in your attitude or behavior?

They are dying of COVID-19 of course. The leadership in the red states wants to appear to be doing better than they are. That's all.

It depends on what is best politically for the Democrat party. They'll generally overstate the death count because that suits their narrative. They'll overstate when it comes to Texas or Florida which have governors that Democrats want to vilify. They'll overstate deaths to justify their lockdowns and their unexplainable desire to push drugs for Pfizer and Moderna that might not work and could even kill people. They'll play it down when people like Cuomo, Murphy and Wolf put the infected in nursing homes which ended up killing thousands more than reported. And let's not forget that the media will report anything the Democrats want them to. You'll get whatever bullshit the Democrats want them to feed you.

I don't think it is only the red. I believe the big guy did that too. We are hearing like it is the end of human existence every day. The death count hardly moves.

The vaccine is killing millions, globally, you ghoulish prick. Can you now masturbate to that? Or do you require even more daily deaths? Soon perhaps you too will conjugate that final verb and visit the undiscovered country.

"The big guy"?

You know that nationally 2,000 people a day are dying of this? Even with the red state fudging?

Not all of them. Many are dying of heart disease or cancer, because all the ICU beds are filled with COVID patients, they can't get critical care.

That was the whole idea behind the shutdowns, to "flatten the curve" so hospitals wouldn't be so overrun by COVID patients, they coudln't take care of their normal patients.

Just look at the several states like Alaska and Idaho, who have announced they're rationing medical care.

Texas is again rolling out mobile morgue trucks just to store all the dead bodies.

Aug 17, 2021 — Texas officials requested 5 refrigerated trucks to hold deceased COVID-19 victims, an NBC News report shows.

Who knows, with the virus being used as a political football there is no focus on the real issue of how it could be best handled.
