The majority of these elderly people aren't even dying of the virus but it's being chalked off as a "Covid" death to keep the Covid death count high, the feamongering going and the $$$ coming in. These are old people with a wide variety of multiple serious medical conditions. They're are on multiple toxic medical drugs that cause serious adverse reactions. Many were in and out of ths ER & urgent care departments well before the arrival of this new virus. They're dying from pneumonia, COPD, cancers, cardiovascular diseases, adverse reactions to toxic medical drugs, etc. A some of them died from complications of being put on a ventilator when they didn't need to!

Correction, allegedly 12,000 or so dead of COVID alone (although even that number is questionable). The other 188,000 died of COVID and a myriad of other conditions. Likely 100,000 of those were people from nursing homes or other assisted living with a limited life expectancy. None of us live forever.
"None of us live forever". Isn't that what FDR said in 41-'45 and folks said after 9/11?
No FDR said "The only thing to fear is fear itself" Before hundreds of thousands of young Americans joined a war where they knew many would die in. They stormed the beaches of Normandy knowing they were more likely going to die than survive. Now people don't have the cajones to face a virus that to date has killed .06% of the US population and half of the deaths have been in nursing homes, even more being sickly people. Not to say its not sad when people die of COVID but a COVID death is not greater than any other death and there aren't very many young people dying of it.
Not many young people dying of it? Whew. That makes it ok then. But then they can infect old and vulnerable people who will die of it. Do you have the "cojones" (correct spelling) to infect someone who will die? Sure you do, champ.
Also, Covid deaths are not wartime casualties incurred fighting to save the rest of us. Think more of a bomb dropped in your midst that has taken out 200,000 people. 65x 9/11. But it's not you, so that ok. Just other Americans.
There's BIG money at stake here. More dough on sliding scale is given to the hospitals for a Covid admission, a Covid ICU hospitalization & a Covid death. That's why everything these days is chalked off to Covid! And hospitals are starving for $$$, - this a great scheme to improve your revenue and not be in the red all the time.
