Peer-Reviewed Study Claims CDC Skewed CCP Virus Fatalities Upward

CDC ignored federal laws and regulations

Last October, a science and public health journal said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ignored federal laws and regulations when it “modified” how the US counts deaths from COVID-19, caused by CCP virus.

“All federal agencies are required to submit a notification for data collection, publication, or analysis to the Federal Register BEFORE gaining approval from the U.S. Office of Management and Budget’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OMB/OIRA) to ensure they are in compliance with the Information Quality Act (IQA) and the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) and therefore, approved to implement the proposed changes,” the authors said in the study published by the Journal of Science, Public Health Policy and Law.

“Based upon the complete absence of Federal Register records for ‘Proposed Data Collection Submitted for Public Comment,’ at no point, did the CDC inform the OMB/OIRA or allow for 60 days of public comment in the following unilateral decisions that attempted to bypass Federal oversight,” the study claimed.

“We allege that the complete absence of the appropriate Federal Register records is evidence that the CDC knowingly and willingly violated the IQA & PRA. As a direct consequence of implementing the two documents below without OMB approval, there was significant inflation of COVID-19 case and fatality data,” the study said.

A spokesman for the CDC wasn’t available for comments

Study authors compared death counts collected using the new system by the CDC in an alert issued on March 24, 2020. The procedures are thoroughly explained in two handbooks. Physicians have one and the other is for medical examiners and coroners.

“These handbooks have been used successfully for 17 years without the need of update. They remain in use today for all causes of death except where involvement of COVID-19 is suspected or confirmed. When involvement of COVID-19 is suspected or confirmed, the March 24th, 2020 COVID19 Alert No. 2 guidelines are used instead,” according to the study.

Based on all data from death cases in the US through August 23, 2020, the CDC system counted 161,392 deaths related to the virus. The old system counted 9,684.

“The essential difference between the old and new systems was the latter’s inclusion of multiple co-morbidities along with the virus and listing the virus as the cause of death and the co-morbidities as ‘contributing conditions.’”

This study outlined a CDC weekly alert on Aug. 23, 2020, that read, “for 6 percent of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.”

This weekly alert updated as of March 14, 2021, reads, “for 6 percent of these deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned on the death certificate. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 3.8 additional conditions or causes per death.”

“Why would the CDC decide against using a system of data collection and reporting they authored, and which has been in use nationwide for 17 years without incident, in favor of an untested and unproven system exclusively for COVID-19 without discussion and peer-review,” the study asked.

“Did the CDC’s decision to abandon a known and proven effective system also breach several federal laws that ensure data accuracy and integrity? Did the CDC knowingly alter rules for reporting cause of death in the presence of comorbidity exclusively for COVID-19? If so, why,” the study further asked.
