COVID-19 death numbers in Santa Clara County scaled back 22% after review

Health officials in California’s Santa Clara County recently announced a 22% drop in COVID-19 death cases after reviewing the county’s medical records, KPIX-5 reported. 

The revised medical report stated it reviewed 2,201 deaths listed as COVID-19-related and only counted cases in which the cause of death was due to the actual COVID-19 virus and its effects, rather than also including deceased individuals who had simply tested positive for the virus at the time of their death, which was from other causes.

The revised report included 1,696 deaths, nearly one-fourth lower than the initial numbers widely reported by the media.

Why is the update important?

“It is important to go back and do this accounting to see if COVID was actually the cause of death,” said University of California San Francisco Professor of Medicine and Infectious Disease expert Dr. Monica Gandhi, according to KPIX-5.

“I think that transparent communication is an upside, I mean, in the sense that it’s true that if we did this across the nation, it would bring our death rate lower. A downside of that, could be that people will say, ‘Well, it wasn’t as serious as you said.'”

“In the midst of everything COVID people were sort of putting down that cause of death as COVID,” Gandhi said. “It is important to go back and do this accounting to see if COVID was actually the cause of death.”

What about other counties?

The same report noted: “Last month, Alameda County health leaders refined their approach to reporting COVID-19 deaths as well and also registered a drop in that county’s death toll by about a quarter.”

The findings may lead other counties to also reevaluate their COVID-19 death statistics. If so, the number of deaths will undoubtedly decrease, though even an average 25% drop everywhere else will likely still amount to hundreds of thousands of Americans dead from the virus — a tragic, unfortunate result of the pandemic that took a heavy toll on those with comorbidities.

Still, the updated numbers should serve as encouragement that those who have recovered from COVID-19 are likely a higher percentage than what is currently believed — or what is currently reported by the bulk of the mainstream media.

How about that vaccine?

The Biden-Harris administration has continued to push COVID-19 vaccinations as necessary to reopening schools and the economy. However, the new report from Santa Clara County — and hopefully more counties to follow — could have meaningful effects on decisions made in regard to COVID-19 rules for schools and businesses.

States that reopened early, like Florida and Texas, have shown that lockdown measures appear to do more harm than good.

While it’s tragic that even a single American died as a result of contracting COVID-19, one has to genuinely wonder what the real death toll numbers are. If one single county managed to find a 22% drop, there’s no telling how many more people were inaccurately listed as COVID-19 deaths across the nation.

  9. This has been the elephant in the room since the beginning of the pandemic. It is of interest to note that people “of advanced age” were especially susceptible to this disease. While death IS permanent, the cause really doesn’t matter EXCEPT when numbers are USED to penalize others. Personally, and without external proof, my personal opinion is that the COVID death numbers were inflated by at least 20 per cent. Hind sight is wonderful (in a car rear view mirror) but in this case, lock-downs probably caused more lives than they prevented while open air and sunshine was probably the way to go. I never heard of any “spike” in COVID infections as a result of the Trump “outdoor rallies” :^)
