On Aug. 19, Rebecca Sunenshine took part in live streamed press
conference to discuss Maricopa County’s COVID-19 statistics for July.
And she admitted that the overall number of deaths in Maricopa County
attributed to the virus has nothing to do solely with a deceased’s cause
Sunenshine, the county’s Medical Director of Disease Control, stated
that Maricopa County’s COVID-19 death count includes people who tested
positive days, sometimes weeks, prior to dying, despite a lack of any
medical evidence that the coronavirus played a role in the person’s
“Even if it’s not listed on their death certificate, anyone who has a
COVID-19 positive test within a certain period of when they died is
also counted as a COVID-19 positive death,” she said.
Throw in this from the CDC, which is boils down to "If you don't have some other serious health problem, your risk from this isn't much". Which isn't what lots of idiots have been screaming for months, is it?
