So apparently the number of American deaths from Covid (as opposed to with Covid) are “forthcoming” from the CDC.
Asked "how many of the 836,000 deaths in the U.S. linked to Covid are FROM Covid or how many are WITH Covid," CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky says "those data will be forthcoming." pic.twitter.com/JVcFk3aunc

I’m not gonna hold my breath… or maybe I should… so I don’t catch Covid.
I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that the CDC knows exactly how many deaths are from Covid and can’t tell you.
I think there’s a good chance that the death rates have been blown far enough out of proportion that there would be outrage over the fact that governments around the world just stole the last two years of everybody’s lives for a flu with a high recovery rate.
Walensky formed her answer around Omicron, when the question was regarding total deaths. Omicron is a new variant and has nothing to do with past Covid deaths. I want the death data from the first 18 months, from March 2020 to September 2021, which the CDC has. The fact that Walensky was able to get away with such a non-answer is embarrassing. Can we get some journalists that actually push back please? Interviews like this help no one.
In a different interview, Walensky pointed out that the CDC has found that 75% of Covid deaths were paired with 4 or more comorbidities. ‘Member when you got labeled as a conspiracy theorist for saying that?

What a world we live in. If you said this a month or two ago, you would have gotten banned from any social media site you had the guts to post that on.
Are we ever going to get back to functioning like normal human beings? Where we feel like we can actually trust the experts, doctors and scientists don’t get banned from YouTube for having a medical opinion, and you don’t get labeled as a conspiracy theorist for thinking that there’s an explanation beyond what the government has decided we’re worthy enough to hear?
