As we always knew there was a big undercount of deaths from Coronavirus.

My state Mi. has had a bunch of requalifications in last couple weeks. 112 old deaths were included in 187 total today. Not sure about other states, but I'm betting if they are on the up and up like mine we are gonna clean up some of the undercount.

1. The excess deaths across the US have been 1/5 or 1/4 higher than the attributed COVID deaths

since last spring.

There's a lot of unidentified COVID deaths out there which will never be properly attributed. Demographers and epidemiologists and historians will be studying those numbers for many years...

2. I believe Mi. has been diligent in uncovering these deaths.

I also believe some states are doing their utmost to conceal them.

3. Like Florida? I'm not buying their numbers.

When someone dies there but is not an official resident it doesnít count. Maybe some of those numbers are captured in whatever state the person resides. But I donít think that always happen. Stated without proof, as so many things are now
