Under Counting of COVID-19 Possible

The mayor of a Northern Italy town, Bergamo, has speaks of his town having a year-over-year increase of 108 deaths during the first two weeks in March (56 in ‘2019 and 164 in 2020). However, only 31 of those deaths were officially attributed to COVID-19. Why is that? Because the other 77 deceased persons were not tested for the present of the SARS-COV2 virus that causes COVID-19. The same is confirmed to be true in the norther Italy town of Membro, where the difference in count was 127; up four times over the norm.

In the U.S. the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) readily admits to an under count happening. Epidemiologists and researchers examining 2009 H1N1 (Swine Flu) fatalities have found that the World Health Organization’s numbers were under counted by a factor of 15, while the U.S. count was under measured by a factor of 7. This was not confirmed until some four years later. It leaves one to wonder when we’ll all know the numerical facts, and nothing but the facts, with the COVID-19 mortality rate.
