Colorado man died from alcohol poisoning but health officials classified it as COVID-19-related death
Speaking of the coronavirus death roll many can’t miss a thought that it’s like people are not dying from anything else during the pandemic. And here is what happened in Colorado. A man who died from alcohol poisoning was later determined by medics as a person died from the coronavirus.
But how did it happen?
Earlier in May 35-year-old Sebastian Yellow was found by police and Colorado’s Montezuma County coroner office determined that he had .55 alcohol in his blood — twice the lethal limit — and concluded that Mr. Yellow died after suffering from acute alcohol poisoning.
George Deavers, the coroner said, "They should have to be recording the same way I do. They have to go off the truth and facts and list it as such."
One important detail - Yellow was tested positive for COVID-19.
However, Deavers added that COVID-19 wasn’t a cause of the man’s death. “It was alcohol toxicity,” he said.
But later, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment released a statement which said that they "classify a death as confirmed when there was a case who had positive SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) laboratory test and then died."
"The gist is that there must be strong epidemiological evidence of COVID-19 such as a combination of close contact with a confirmed case and symptoms of COVID-19. We will also count a death as a COVID-19 death when there is no known positive laboratory test, but the death certificate lists 'COVID-19' as a cause of death," the statement said.
The incident seemed suspicious to Deavers and noted that some people suggest that the state is trying to show that the situation with the coronavirus is much worse than it really is.
Everything is simple. The state was budgeted with two trillion dollars for the COVID. So they need to prove the money and thus inflate the numbers for the reports and add not coronavirus-related deaths to the real numbers of those who has already been taken away by the virus.
