Many CDC Blunders Exaggerated Severity of COVID-19: Study

March 24, 2023

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) made at least 25 statistical or numerical errors during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the overwhelming majority exaggerated the severity of the pandemic, according to a new study.

Researchers who have been tracking CDC errors compiled 25 instances where the agency offered demonstrably false information. For each instance, they analyzed whether the error exaggerated or downplayed the severity of COVID-19.

Of the 25 instances, 20 exaggerated the severity, the researchers reported in the study, which was published ahead of peer review on March 23.

“The CDC has expressed significant concern about COVID-19 misinformation. In order for the CDC to be a credible source of information, they must improve the accuracy of the data they provide,” the authors wrote.

The CDC did not respond to a request for comment.

  • Most of the errors involved children
    • CDC claimed 4% of COVID deaths are children. The true percentage is .04%.
    • CDC falsely claimed COVID was the fifth cause of death for children which has still not been corrected.
    • CDC exaggerated the pediatric death toll before Congress
  • Epidemiologist, Dr. Vinay Prasad, coauthor of the paper said CDC errors are demonstrably false numbers.
  • CDC has repeated the errors and in some cases has still not issued corrections.
  • The authors are still trying to get their paper published, and they reported no funding sources.
Something tells me this paper will never see the light of day.
The CDC doesn’t care a tittle about public health, and is an absolutely corrupt organization engaged in fraud that needs to be disbanded.
