The CDC informed the world several days ago that 94% of Americans who died from Covid-19 had other medical conditions. When many people said, ‘Aha! That means the pandemic is mainly killing those who are already ill,” the mass media and fact-checkers went to work to debunk them.
For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death. The number of deaths with each condition or cause is shown for all deaths and by age groups.
