COVID-19

6% of COVID-19 deaths due to ‘only’ COVID-19 explained!

Published

We’re always on the hunt for information about COVID-19 which has not been politicized.  This is not as easy as it should be!  We’ve found a source of information worthy of sharing with you.  Dr. Zubin Damania is a California-based MD who is trying his best to explain COVID-19 and how we should really be reacting to it.  He doesn’t downplay how serious it is at all, but he’s also not in favour of lockdowns (we can share that video later).   In this video he explains the latest COVD controversy, regarding the CDC’s sharing information about what COVID-19 victims actually died of.   It’s a must-watch and a must share.  (Though it’s probably too tough on people who shared information downplaying the figures, as if they were all guilty of spreading false information while undoubtedly some where only trying to spark convesation.)

Dr. Zubin Damania says it was wrong of Twitter to take down President Trump’s tweet on this new stat.  Not because the President was correct, but because the President’s tweet should have sparked a conversation leading to the truth behind the figure we’ve all seen in the last week from the CDC.   The stat is that only 6% of the people who’ve died from COVID-19 “only” had COVID-19.  The 94% of other deaths had an average of 2.5 comorbidities.  

Here’s a way to think about this critically no matter where you are on the political spectrum.

DR. ZUBIN DAMANIA, MD

I’m a UCSF/Stanford trained internist and founder of Turntable Health, an innovative primary care clinic and model for Health 3.0. During a decade-long hospitalist career at Stanford, I experienced our dysfunctional health care system firsthand. As a way to address my own “burnout” and find a voice, I started producing videos and live shows under the pseudonym “ZDoggMD” that have since gone epidemically viral. This launched a grassroots movement — nearly a billion views and a passionate tribe dedicated to improving healthcare for everyone. Join the ZPac and help us reclaim our calling!

After 15 years as a TV reporter with Global and CBC and as news director of RDTV in Red Deer, Duane set out on his own 2008 as a visual storyteller. During this period, he became fascinated with a burgeoning online world and how it could better serve local communities. This fascination led to Todayville, launched in 2016.
