WOW! New Jersey Is Latest State to Significantly Drop Coronavirus Death Tally in Nursing Homes — From 5,408 to 4,295

Last week Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House Coronavirus Task Force response administrator, challenged the CDC Director in a heated conversation. Dr. Birx told Dr. Redfield, “There is nothing from the CDC that I can trust!”

Birx was right. The CDC numbers could not be trusted.
The CDC intentionally made it that way.

Colorado admitted last weekend to over-counting coronavirus deaths in the state and lowered their state totals by 272 deaths.

CDPHE now reports that as of May 9, 878 people had died “due to” COVID-19 and 1,150 people have died “among” COVID-19 cases.

And now New Jersey is lowering its fatality numbers in nursing homes.
The Garden State is dropping its total number of deaths in nursing homes from 5,408 to 4,295.

Steve Bognar from News 4 New York reported:

The numbers were updated to reference nursing home numbers and not total coronavirus numbers.

UPDATE: The nursing home numbers went from 5,700 to 4,295 if you believe the state officials.

The senator has issued a scathing statement about the new coronavirus death total for New Jersey’s long-term care (LTC) facilities, which was lowered from 5,700 to 4,295 on Tuesday, according to a Politico report.

State health officials determined the deceased didn’t get a lab-confirmed diagnosis for COVID-19 before they passed away, a stipulation that officials will now require when they report death totals, according to Politico.
