“Covid cases and deaths have been over counted, perhaps materially by CDC.”

The Economist runs their own model for all countries and regions in the world and compares their results to the official data of each country (apparently the CDC for the U.S. based on a footnote). Long story short, they seem to think the CDC is materially undercounting the deaths.

I don’t think there’s any conspiracy to make the numbers look bad. If you compare the US to other countries, we actually look reasonably good (relatively speaking).

You can quibble with the numbers, but if you’re suggesting it’s not such a big deal then I think that’s incorrect. Even using the lower numbers, the number of deaths has surpassed the combined total deaths from all major US wars.

data source.

And the problems extend far beyond deaths. People who contract Covid often develop chronic and serious health issues.

True, it affects people more as they are older and I am not going to argue about the guidance or mandates. I have various opinions about it — some of which may agree with yours (possibly). But I think it’s clear adults should be vaccinated.
