Any discussion about COVID eventually devolves to death.
In the beginning, a lot of morons were predicting 2-3,000,000 US deaths from COVID. They were, in many instances, smart people who extrapolated very sketchy data to absurd conclusions. I don’t think they intended to mislead, but many of them were alarmists.
That obviously did not happen.
I also heard a lot of folks who said things like:
“Total deaths in the US went down during the time of COVID.”
“Every death is being characterized as COVID related because of funding implications.”
