CDC Director Rochelle Walensky Admits COVID-19 is Not the Primary Cause of Death in 75 Percent of Cases

Most vaccinated people no longer need fear imminent death from COVID-19 or its variants, says Dr. Rochelle Walensky, head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Remarking on a CDC study showing vaccines targeting COVID-19 and its variants have successfully prevented serious illness, Walensky said most deaths from COVID in vaccinated people occurred in individuals diagnosed with several other conditions or diseases, during an appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America on January 7.

“The overwhelming number of deaths, over 75 percent, occurred in people who had at least four comorbidities,” said Walensky. “So, really, these are people who were unwell, to begin with. And yes, really encouraging news in the context of Omicron; this means not only just to get your primary series but to get your booster series. And yes, we’re really encouraged by these results.”

The CDC study found among 1,228,664 people who completed primary vaccinations during the period from December 2020 to October 2021, severe COVID-19-associated outcomes (0.015 percent) or death (0.0033 percent) were rare.

Risk factors for severe outcomes identified in the study included being 65 years and older, immunosuppressed, and having one or more of six other underlying conditions. Indeed, all people with severe outcomes had at least one risk factor, while 78 percent of persons who died had at least four.

CDC Hubris on Display

Mission creep has diminished the value of the CDC, says Linda Gorman, director of the Health Care Policy Center at the Independence Institute, a free-market think tank in Denver, Colorado.

“The only reason to have a CDC is to help individuals assess their risk of disease and to present accurate information about the steps that can be taken to modify the risk of bad outcomes if individuals think it makes sense to do so,” said Gorman.

“Unfortunately, CDC long ago redefined its mission,” said Gorman. “It now acts as a Commissar of Health, claiming unlimited power to make individuals conform to whatever it defines as healthy behavior for the entire U.S. population. It defines behaviors that will reduce suicide, obesity, firearms violence, general violence, adolescent and school health, smoking, perinatal care, reproductive health (both U.S. and global, and only for women), depression, reducing ‘disparities,’ dental problems, drinking, sexual behavior, child-rearing, and lack of sleep.

“These are not diseases, and CDC solutions mostly involve spending a lot of money doing programs that deny human agency, rearranging the same public health nostrums that have already failed, and waste a lot of effort,” said Gorman.

Confounding Causes of Death

There are problems in reporting the cause of death of patients positive for COVID-19, says Erwin Hass, M.D., M.B.A, an infectious disease expert and policy advisor to The Heartland Institute, which publishes Health Care News.

“The legal/medical cause of death on a death certificate is usually the last event that entrained the final chain of events that led to death,” said Haas. “I found another formulation: The most important, immediate, direct or actual cause, or last event or act that occurred before the chain of events leading to death.

“As such, the folks with four comorbidities who develop COVID-19 clinically and die after a few weeks died of COVID-19, not of their obesity or lung diseases,” said Haas.

“There is a confounding problem when everyone who comes to a hospital is cultured, has false positives or actually truly positive tests but no real symptoms, but die from their underlying auto accident or from a complication of one of the infirmities of old age, but who arguably develop a few symptoms that could be ascribed to COVID-19 and are labeled as dying from the virus—especially when there might be a $35,000 bonus for that diagnosis,” said Haas, referring to extraordinary reimbursements during the pandemic.

Fauci Not Alone

When it comes to COVID-19, we’ve been misled by the authorities, says John Dale Dunn, M.D., J.D., a physician whose background is in emergency medicine.

“Tony Fauci, M.D., and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) was and is the lead ‘noble’ liar, but he had help from the WHO [World Health Organization], pharma[ceutical companies], and, of course, the complicit health care and health care industry poohbahs in and out of government,” said Dunn.

“The most devastating blow Fauci struck was his successful effort to censor physicians advocating early treatment, to include condemnation of ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, combined with his push for unprecedented and ineffective, harmful, masking/social distancing/lockdown/school closing mitigations, all the while ignoring the importance of special precautions for the at-risk and the absolutely low risk for the healthy and children,” said Dunn.

“Fauci is and has been a shill for vaccine makers—and has a history of bad medical science and policymaking dating back to the 1980s HIV/AIDS matter,” said Dunn. “I know, I have been watching him for more than 30 years.”

The lies were all part of the orchestrated panic essential for the imposition of a police state-style control regime, says Dunn.

“Tony Fauci is a megalomaniac authoritarian dissembler who has blood, particularly the blood of the old and vulnerable, on his hands,” Dunn said.

  1. Is this and similar revelations the Pentagon Papers of Covid-19? Again, have we been lied to by prominent political and government figures?
