Former top public health official ADMITS Illinois inflates COVID-19 deaths
09/12/2022 // Arsenio Toledo // Views

Dr. Ngozi Ezike, the former director of the Illinois Department of Public Health, admitted during a press briefing that the state inflates the deaths caused by the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).

"I just want to be clear in terms of the definition of 'people dying of COVID.' The case definition is very simplistic. It means, at the time of death, it was a COVID-positive diagnosis," said Ezike.

"So, that means, that if you were in hospice and had already been given a few weeks to live, and then you also were found to have COVID, that would be counted as a COVID death. It means that if, technically, even if you died of a clear alternate cause, but you had COVID at the same time, it's still listed as a COVID death. So, everyone who is listed as a COVID death doesn't [automatically] mean that was the cause of the death, but they had COVID at the time of death." (Related: 82% of COVID-19 cases in an Illinois school caused by fully vaccinated students and staff.)

"Does that make any kind of sense to you whatsoever?" commented Dr. Daniel Bobinski on his Brighteon.TV program "Keep the Republic."

"It would be like saying, 'We had 50 percent of the people who died in this past month all had hangnails, and so we could probably describe the fact that they died of having a hangnail.' It's the same logic," continued Bobinski. "There's no cause, they just happened to have COVID when they died, even if they were diagnosed with something else altogether, and the prognosis was death."

Bobinski warned that the number of COVID-19 deaths in Illinois may be severely inflated, especially if the state relied on faulty PCR tests to figure out who had the coronavirus and who didn't.


"Well of course that inflates the numbers," he said. "That makes the population a little bit afraid of this little thing."

Ezike claims Illinois death count is accurate

In later public appearances, Ezike defended Illinois' COVID-19 death statistics, claiming that the number of people in the state who have died of the coronavirus is regularly scrutinized.

"When we have looked at all the deaths that have occurred, we have looked at those that were related to an accident or obviously not proximate to the COVID-19 virus," she said to reporters during a different press briefing. "It was less than 0.6 percent of those deaths were in that category where it was an accident, or homicide or something where the COVID diagnosis was not the proximate cause of death."

As of press time, 39,445 people in Illinois allegedly died of COVID-19. Due to Ezike's revelation, it is still unclear how many of those were actually caused by the coronavirus and how many died of other causes, but just so happened to have COVID-19 at the time of death.

It is also unclear how many people in Illinois, with a full vaccination rate of over 70 percent, died due to health issues caused by the COVID-19 vaccines and not from the coronavirus.
