Chris Martenson: CDC Data is surprising

Peak Prosperity, Released on 7/27/21

The CDC has released a gigantic romp through the Covid hospitalization and death data. Some fascinating things I did not expect have emerged. The bad news is that 8 comorbidities are highly correlated with worse outcomes and/or death. The good news is that a bunch of comorbidities seemed to not make things any worse, and might have even been slightly protective. Weird, right? The most glaring statistic is that of all the people who died of Covid, those with 0 (zero) comorbidities represented just 0.9% of the deaths. That observation alone leads to obvious public health advisories that we should be receiving (but are not).
