Of course, this was not reported by the western media because it would shatter their COVID House of Cards.  As reported by Irish Central News on Sunday, Patrick O’Connor, the solicitor and coroner for County Mayo in Ireland, challenged the accuracy of COVID death reporting by the country’s National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET).
Mr. O’Connor also serves as public information officer and specifically claimed that the government’s reporting of COVID deaths “do not have a scientific basis.”
He specifically questioned COVID as the cause of death in many cases where the patients were already critically ill. As clarified by the article, Mr. O’Connor emphasized there is a clear difference between a patient dying from COVID-19 and dying with it:
“When a person is suffering from a number of medical conditions which will or may lead to their death at some short time in the future, if they are unlucky enough to be infected by the COVID virus then at death if they prove to be COVID positive in a test, it is that which is recorded as the principal cause of death—even though that person may have been terminally ill with a short life-expectancy prior to such testing.”
Another Irish coroner, Dr. Denis Cusack of Kildare County, also challenged the government’s death total for COVID-19. He said 99 percent of the deaths reported in his county were of individuals who had significant underlying health problems. Out of 230 deaths attributed to COVID-19, “132 had a cardiovascular condition, 120 had dementia, 58 had respiratory problems, 36 had cancer, 30 had a neurological condition, 25 had diabetes, and 23 had kidney problems.”
TRENDPOST: Would U.S. hospitals cook the COVID numbers by listing people that were on their deathbed because of preexisting chronic conditions as virus victims because they tested positive? 
On 14 April, we reported, “Dr. Scott Jenson, a Minnesota state senator who is also a medical doctor, accused the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of directing doctors to list COVID-19 as a cause of death even for someone who was never tested for it, which he said is ‘ridiculous’ and misleading.”
Dr. Jensen added, “I know that I’ve talked with nursing staff… and led to believe that there may have been a COVID-19 diagnosis included on the death certificate document without having had a COVID-19 confirmed laboratory test.”
The Bottom Line
Why would they do that? For the money!
Dr. Jensen said,
“Hospital administrators might well want to see COVID-19 attached to a discharge summary or a death certificate. Why? Because if it’s a straightforward, garden-variety pneumonia that a person is admitted to the hospital for – if they’re Medicare – typically, the diagnosis-related group lump sum payment would be $5,000. But if it’s COVID-19 pneumonia, then it’s $13,000, and if that COVID-19 pneumonia patient ends up on a ventilator, it goes up to $39,000.”
Indeed, this is a fact that has been fact-checked even by USA Today, which stated on 20 April 2020:
“We rate the claim that hospitals get paid more if patients are listed as COVID-19 and on ventilators as TRUE.
Hospitals and doctors do get paid more for Medicare patients diagnosed with COVID-19 or if it’s considered presumed they have COVID-19 absent a laboratory-confirmed test, and three times more if the patients are placed on a ventilator to cover the cost of care and loss of business resulting from a shift in focus to treat COVID-19 cases.
This higher allocation of funds has been made possible under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act through a Medicare 20% add-on to its regular payment for COVID-19 patients, as verified by USA TODAY through the American Hospital Association Special Bulletin on the topic.”
Now, a year later, these hard facts are long forgotten.
TRENDPOST: The Trends Journal reported on 9 September that the CDC confirmed what we had been stating soon after the coronavirus started spreading: the elderly and those with preexisting chronic conditions were the primary COVID victims. The CDC has confirmed that 94 percent of the people dying from COVID-19 already had serious underlying health issues before getting the virus. 
In our 9 September article, “BUY THE COVID HYPE, AVOID THE FACTS,” we wrote:
Last week, the CDC emphatically confirmed what the Trends Journal has been reporting since the lockdowns began in March: the vast majority of people killed by the virus are from elder care homes, elderly people suffering from pre-existing chronic conditions, and, overall, some 94 percent of all Americans who died from COVID-19 had underlying health conditions.
The top underlying medical conditions linked with COVID-19 deaths:

  • Influenza and pneumonia
  • Respiratory failure
  • Hypertensive disease
  • Diabetes
  • Vascular and unspecified dementia
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Heart failure
  • Renal failure
  • Intentional and unintentional injury, poisoning, and other adverse events

As stated directly on the CDC’s website, “For 6 percent 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.”
