The CDC Was Caught Altering Children’s COVID Data!

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has corrected the data of COVID-19 deaths on Friday which resulted in a lower number of all age groups, including children.

Before the correction was conducted, the data that the CDC first provided was a misleading impression prior to the fix that children were dying at a sharply amplified rate amid the omicron surge earlier this year.

The data that 1,755 all-time deaths from children ages 0 to 17 on Tuesday, with 738 of the deaths occurring during the first 10 weeks of 2022.

The number of U.S. children with COVID-19 rose sharply during the Omicron variant wave due to its increased transmissibility and low vaccination rates among children 5-11 who are eligible for the vaccine.

Children ages 0-4 are not eligible for the vaccine in the United States.

Melody Schreiber an independent journalist posted on Twitter along with a link to her story in the U.K. Guardian about the same. “One-third of all child deaths from Covid has happened in the past two months. That’s staggering,”

The adjustment resulted in the removal of 72,277 deaths previously reported across 26 states, including 416 pediatric deaths, CDC said.

During oral arguments on President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate, Justice Sonia Sotomayor remarked that there were “over 100,000 children [in hospitals], which we’ve never had before, in serious condition and many on ventilators.” The effect of the omicron on children had long been a matter of febrile speculation for the left, the media, and even Supreme Court justices.

This erroneous data made the media speculate about the omicron virus said to be the deadlier effect on children, who had heretofore been spared the brunt of the virus — and now there were data to back it up.

The Guardian and the New York Post ran pieces on the “staggering” spike in child deaths.

The CDC said “On March 15, 2022, data on deaths were adjusted after resolving a coding logic error. This resulted in decreased death counts across all demographic categories”

CDC spokeswoman Jasmine Reed said that the agency’s algorithm had inadvertently been including non-COVID-related deaths in the count, leading to the skewed numbers. “An adjustment was made to COVID Data Tracker’s mortality data on March 14 involving the removal of 72,277 — including 416 pediatric deaths — deaths previously reported across 26 states because CDC’s algorithm was accidentally counting deaths that were not COVID-19-related.”

“Working with near real-time data in an emergency is critical to guide decision-making, but may also mean we often have incomplete information when data are first reported.” She added.

“Disturbing and shameful” is how Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson described the CDC’s lack of transparency in a March 1 letter to CDC Director Rochelle Walensky.

Johnson wrote, “In the midst of a pandemic, it is unacceptable that CDC would withhold relevant data on COVID-19 that could inform the public and potentially save lives.”

Melody Schreiber’s comment about the journalists who used the faulty data to write stories about the heightened risk kids during the omicron were all deleted from her Twitter account.

The risk might be increasing but this shouldn’t be a reason to induce panic. Lockdowns, school closures, and mask mandates could lead to a high risk of mental health and childhood development of our children.

Though the mainstream media outlets were already aware of the number even before it was corrected, it’s still the main concern how these children who won’t be touched by the disease will end up scarred by the preventative measures.
