ChinCOVID: Then and Now

Here’s an interesting paper: COVID-19 Data Collection, Comorbidity & Federal Law: A Historical Retrospective

I’ve mentioned that the CDC has issued ChinCOVID guidance that allows deaths to be ICD-10 coded (U07.1) as death by ChinCOVID even if the person tested negative for the virus, leading to ChinCOVID causing motorcycle crashes, gun shots, surgical complications,alcohol poisoning, and more. That paper looks at how, why, and what the CDC guidance happened, and the results of the change.

Aside from a peculiar reference to “SARS-CoV-2” in 2005, which suspect was a rogue spellchecker at work since the 2005 outbrak was SARS-CoV, this seem accurate enough. Much of it is sstuff I’ve confirmed before.

I’ll just show you one graphic from the paper. It is a comparison of ChinCOVID deaths under the current guidance, and under the guidance that the United States used for 17 years until ChinCOVID became the handy tool for totalitarians.

Draw your own conclusions.
