Covid19 Death Figures “A Substantial Over-Estimate” – Including thousands dead never tested?

Published 2020-04-07 17:02:04 by Guest Author in Eurasia, Germany, Headline-News, Italy, Opinions, United-Kingdom, United-States

By Kit Knightly for OffGuardian – A few weeks ago we reported that, according to the Italian Institute of Health (ISS), only 12% of Italy’s reported Covid19 deaths actually listed Covid19 as the cause of death. Given that 99% of them had at least one serious co-morbidity (and that 80% of them had two such diseases) this raised serious questions as to the reliability of Italy’s reported statistics. Prof Walter Ricciardi, advisor to Italy’s health minister, explained this was caused by the “generous” way the Italian government handles death certificates: The way in which we code deaths in our country is very… Continue ->

CARACAS – President Nicolas Maduro stated that he had “ordered the mobilization of artillery [pieces]” in the country’s strategic areas in order to protect the security of the Venezuelan people. “I denounce the existence of groups financed from Colombia and the US, which seek to undermine the stability of [our] homeland with violent actions,” he wrote on his Twitter page, RIA Novosti reported.

PARIS – With those worst hit by the virus facing an agonizing death from asphyxia, palliative care specialists in France are struggling amid drug shortages to give victims the most humane end possible. As the epidemic gathers pace, medics in the badly hit east of the country have been sharing their experiences of how they made tough decisions on who should or shouldn’t be given precious intensive care beds, AFP reported. For some patients, such treatment may be both pointless and cruel, argued Professor Olivier Guerin, who heads the French Gerontology and Geriatrics Society (SFGG). “Making the choice of who… Continue ->

Published 2020-04-07 09:00:56 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Headline-News, United-Kingdom

LONDON – UK could be significantly underestimating the number of medics going off work due to the COVID-19, according to a survey by the Royal College of Physicians (RCP). Health Secretary Matt Hancock said that 5.7% of hospital doctors were off sick or absent because of COVID-19, but a doctors’ survey of more than 2,500 medics found the rate was almost three times that – 14.6%, The Guardian reported. In recent weeks in London, nearly a third of hospital doctors said they were off work for COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 reasons, according to the RCP’s poll of members, conducted on Wednesday… Continue ->

He blamed the US build-up in Iraq and its support for the terrorist groups for the prolonged life of ISIL in the country, and said, “Therefore, the remnants of the ISIL terrorists… Continue ->
