I have read it. Have you?

Still waiting on your explanation on how this report adds 200000 deaths to Covid.

Summary
What is already known about this topic?

As of October 15, 216,025 deaths from COVID-19 have been reported in the United States; however, this might underestimate the total impact of the pandemic on mortality.

What is added by this report?

Overall, an estimated 299,028 excess deaths occurred from late January through October 3, 2020, with 198,081 (66%) excess deaths attributed to COVID-19.

Has any one on this board actually had Covid-19 before (I'm not reading 700 pages lol)? I'm currently recovering, and to be honest it has not been anywhere near as severe as the media has portrayed. I understand people react differently, but for me it felt like little more than a sinus infection. Based on my experience, continuing or reinstituting shut-downs is pretty difficult to stomach.

No one said it added 200,000 new deaths. The report says there may be 200,000 more deaths and the report suggest these may be attributed to COVID


From January 26, 2020, through October 3, 2020, an estimated 299,028 more persons than expected have died in the United States.** Excess deaths reached their highest points to date during the weeks ending April 11 (40.4% excess) and August 8, 2020 (23.5% excess) (Figure 1). Two thirds of excess deaths during the analysis period (66.2%; 198,081) were attributed to COVID-19 and the remaining third to other causes†† (Figure 1).

Based on NVSS data, excess deaths have occurred every week in the United States since March 2020. An estimated 299,028 more persons than expected have died since January 26, 2020; approximately two thirds of these deaths were attributed to COVID-19. A recent analysis of excess deaths from March through July reported very similar findings, but that study did not include more recent data through September (5).

estimates of excess deaths attributed to COVID-19 might underestimate the actual number directly attributable to COVID-19, because deaths from other causes might represent misclassified COVID-19–related deaths or deaths indirectly caused by the pandemic. Specifically, deaths from circulatory diseases, Alzheimer disease and dementia, and respiratory diseases have increased in 2020 relative to past years (7), and it is unclear to what extent these represent misclassified COVID-19 deaths or deaths indirectly related to the pandemic (e.g., because of disruptions in health care access or utilization).

You have quoted a tweet from the Washington Post guy several times saying the current total of Covid deaths could actually be near 400,000 based on this report. The report doesn't say this. Do you read the tweets you post?

The 1918 flu epidemic was estimated to have killed 50-100 million worldwide. I asked my oldest Oklahoma relative who were kids of parents living in 1918 if their parents ever mentioned the 1918 flu epidemic. No they said they never heard their parents say anything about the 1918 flu epidemic. Perhaps it was because they lived in country far away from easily available news source. They only went to a small town 7-8 miles away when they needed a few staples. They received the Kansas City Star once a week by mail.
