The media is reporting massive death counts from the Coronavirus. These counts are coming from a couple of sources, one of which is the Worldometer coronavirus website. The death counts on these sites and in the media are over reporting the number of Coronavirus deaths by more than 20,000 deaths when compared to the data at the CDC website.
The overcounts by the media are similar to the overcounts as of April 25, 2020, when the CDC also reported 20,000 fewer deaths than the media. The CDC shows 68,998 deaths as of May 16, 2020.
Note that pneumonia deaths (87,444) over the same time period are greater than coronavirus deaths by almost 20,000. Also, Coronavirus deaths are less than 8% of total deaths in the US (68,998/907,069).RTWT.
