Those Florida COVID deaths

| 1 Comment

They are grasping at straws - from the Alachua, Florida  Alachua Chronicle:

Local COVID-19 death certificates all show multiple co-morbidities
Alachua Chronicle has received information from Medical Examiner District 8 about 17 of the 20 deaths that have been attributed to COVID-19 in our county.

Quite the shopping list follows - a few examples:

One woman had already been in hospice for “management of her senile degeneration of the brain” and was admitted to the hospital for “evaluation of altered mental state and a fever” and “acute kidney injury that was likely due to sepsis.” She was transferred back to hospice 11 days later “for continuing end of life care and management of her COVID-19” and died 5 days after the transfer.

And this classic:

Another case at Shands, a 35-year-old male, was listed as a Dade County death from COVID-19: “[The decedent] was working on the roof of a home in Middleburg on 5/28. It started to rain and the decedent and his coworkers stopped working. Bystanders in the neighborhood and the workers on the roof observed a flash of lighting and heard a loud explosion, and several workers were thrown off of the roof. Immediately following the lighting strike, a worker on the roof observed the decedent collapse, fall off of the roof, and land facedown on grass. The decedent’s muscles were reported to be contracted and shaking, and caused the decedent’s body to roll over onto his backside. It was also reported by the workers that the decedent’s eyeballs were rolled back into his skull. Bystanders in the neighborhood observed the decedent on the ground, called 911, and started CPR until EMS arrived on scene. Following the lightning strike, the workers observed a large hole on the roof that appeared burnt. According to medical records, the decedent was transported via EMS to Orange Park Medical Center and was found to have spinal fractures with spinal cord transection, a skull base fracture, and pulmonary contusions. He was transferred on the same day to UF Health Shands Hospital for further management and was admitted to the surgical intensive care unit on mechanical ventilation.

He tested positive for COVID so the cause of death was listed as COVID. They want to keep us locked down until November and this is how they are justifying it. Nothing more than a political power play done by a party that has nothing else to offer.

Some folks are collecting victims like others collect stamps. Must be something in it for them?
