Let this be a salutary lesson to any big account daring to question the official data or any subsequent revisions of these data
So stay safe, mask up, stay apart, don’t gather together & most of all do NOT talk to each other 😉 pic.twitter.com/kYfBvjo4lM

Firm but fair?
Or breaking a butterfly on a wheel?
Only YOU can decide.
Meanwhile, the tweet may be referring to report on August 26 from the US Centres for Disease Control (CDC) which stated only six per cent of people who died from COVID-19 did not have any other listed cause of death.
The New York Times reported:
The CDC data table is based on an analysis of death certificates that mention COVID-19 as a cause. For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned, the CDC notes.
The other 94% list COVID-19 and other conditions together. Among those deaths, there were, on average, 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death, the public health agency said.
…A death isn’t excluded from the COVID-19 tally just because the person was obese or had diabetes or dementia. Someone with heart problems can still be killed by COVID-19, and the death certificate could mention both as contributing.
