Why is the Main stream media not reporting these figures?
Instead we get this!
‘This is our generation’s D-Day’: As US nears 500,000 COVID-19 deaths, weary health care workers fight on amid the heartbreak

SAN FRANCISCO – Nearly a year into a life-altering pandemic, many Americans are fed up with wearing masks, desperate for a return to normalcy and numb to the relentless stream of grim numbers, such as the 500,000 COVID-19 deaths the USA is about to surpass.
Here’s how the media is misreporting COVID-19’s death toll in America
October 17, 2020 | 12:36pm | Updated
On Sept. 22, CNN triumphantly announced that 200,000 people had died from COVID-19 in the United States.
CNN tried various ways of rubbing in the 200,000 figure. Their best effort was an infographic blaring, “US COVID-19 deaths are equal to having the 9/11 attacks every day for 66 days.”
Here’s a less biased, but less catchy, comparison: 2020’s attributed COVID-19 deaths were equivalent to having another 2017-2018 flu and pneumonia season boosted by 13 percent.
The CDC estimated that about 177,000 Americans died during the 2017-2018 flu season, from either the flu itself or by complications of pneumonia. (The CDC never made a public announcement about this number, but you can count it yourself from data on its site, as I did in the chart below.) That was a bad year, noted at the time, but mostly by medical professionals. Those with good memories will recall seeing more “Wash Your Hands” and “Cough Into Your Elbows” posters.
‘Blood on his hands’: As US surpasses 400,000 COVID-19 deaths, experts blame Trump administration for a ‘preventable’ loss of life

Besides being the first president to get impeached twice, Donald Trump will have a stain on his legacy with arguably longer-lasting consequences: He’s the only American leader in a century with more than 400,000 deaths from one event on his watch.
The USA crossed that somber threshold Tuesday, yet another reminder of how poorly the nation with the world’s largest economy has fared during the coronavirus pandemic. As of 2:52 p.m. EST Tuesday, the COVID-19 death toll was at 400,022, according to the Johns Hopkins University dashboard.
Not since Woodrow Wilson was in office during the 1918 flu pandemic – which killed about 675,000 in this country and 50 million worldwide – had a president overseen the loss of so many American lives.
That total is fast approaching the 405,000 U.S. fatalities from World War II – thousands of them recorded when Harry Truman was president after Franklin Delano Roosevelt died in April 1945 – to rank as the third-deadliest event in the history of the republic. About 618,000-750,000 were killed in the Civil War of 1861-1865.
So is Covid real? Of course it is, but who are you going to believe about how it’s going to affect you? The Government? The Main Stream Media? The CDC maybe? News Flash they all lie to you. Open your eyes and look around. Tens of thousands of people die everyday.
So the Government says if you have a patient that dies of Covid your going to get some extra money for having to take care of them. What do hospitals do? Well damn they find a way to say this person died of Covid.
Now they may have had Covid but it looks like many died of other causes than Covid. But hey they are in the businesses of making money too. So why not take it if it’s handed out.
The Government can be a force for good when we the people are in control. But if we let them have the control, it’s us the people that suffer.
