COVID-19 CONVERSATION: Covid-19 Data Inaccurate All States

A recent study [“Estimating the early death of COVID-10 in the United States” Daniel Weinberg, et. al.] shows that at the onset of the virus in the United States, in essence, many of the early infections were erroneously classified as pneumonia and influenza. Pneumonia and influenza incorrectly measured were those well above the estimated usual trend amount of these two diseases. Hence, the P & I infections higher than the usual amounts are seen as the underestimated COVID-19.

For the state of Florida the number of excess P & I deaths was estimated at 180 and the reported COVID-19 deaths were 54–an average excess deaths and underestimated virus of 3 times higher the reported amount.
