IT WAS ALL A LIE: CNN Political Hack Finally Admits the US Has Been Vastly Overcounting COVID Deaths and Hospitalizations

Dr. Leana Wen penned an op-ed in The Washington Post today where she argues the US has been vastly overcounting COVID deaths and hospitalizations.

Dr. Leana Wen also went on CNN and admitted that the US government has been vastly overcounting COVID deaths and hospitalizations.

Robert Kennedy, Jr. later posted this response to the news on Twitter, “A year ago, this was a conspiracy theory that would get you censored…”

Kennedy’s statement has over 15,000 retweets so far.

This is exactly what we have been reporting at The Gateway Pundit for a year-and-a-half now.

In August 2020, Joe Hoft at TGP reported that less than 10,000 Americans died from the China coronavirus (COVID-19) alone without other complications or only 6% of what was reported.  This was based on public CDC data we shared in our article.

This post received a huge response with millions of Americans reading it, sharing it, and writing about it.  President Trump, Donald Trump, Jr., Candace Owens, and others retweeted this article and shared their thoughts.  This was too much for the Democrats and their media and fake fact-checkers.  Within 24 hours they wrote several articles attacking our post and its contents.

We later responded to their hate-filled accusations.

In May 2021 the CDC updated that numbers to 5% of all deaths related to COVID were COVID-only deaths.

A report from the CDC shows that currently the number of deaths that are caused by COVID-19 ONLY is actually 5% and the number may actually be less, because the CDC shares that there may be “a lack of detail” about the other conditions that contributed to the death:

Now finally the liberal mainstream media is catching up to the truth.

Will there be any apologies?
