I’ve actually joked in past about if someone gets hit by a bus, the authorities will count him as a Covid-19 death. I guess it’s not a joke.
And hey – if you can’t believe State bureaucrats, who can you believe?
from the Blaze:
Florida man in his 20s listed among COVID-19 fatalities — but health officer says he died in motorcycle crash
While Florida listed a man in his 20s as among the state’s COVID-19 fatalities, a county health officer told WOFL-TV that the man died in a motorcycle crash.
The station was looking into records that showed two individuals in their 20s as coronavirus fatalities and asked Orange County Health Officer Dr. Raul Pino if either person had any underlying conditions.
Pino’s on-camera reply to WOFL?
“The first one didn’t have any. He died in a motorcycle accident,” he said.
The station then asked Pino if the man’s data was removed.
“I don’t think so. I have to double-check,” Pino replied to WOFL. “We were arguing, we were discussing, and trying to argue with the state. Not because of the numbers — I mean, it’s a hundred; it [doesn’t] make any difference if it’s 99. But … the fact that the individual … didn’t die from COVID-19, died in [the] crash. But you can actually argue that it could have been the COVID-19 that caused him to crash. So I don’t know the conclusion of that one.”
