According to the Oklahoma Health Dept., the national news and national health institutions are giving out radically false information on Oklahoma.
The latest report (Dec. 28) of Oklahoma's Covid-19 deaths, from the State Health Dept, list 11,552 total confirmed deaths from 'covid-positive' residents. But CNN says that Johns Hopkins is saying that 12,419 deaths in Oklahoma are covid-related.
So an error of nearly 8% is apparent. There is a delay of about 5 days, but Oklahoma had 51 deaths of Covid-positive patients in the week prior to the latest report. That trend does not explains a 867 fake body count by the east coast medical college and hospital. The covid death count in Oklahoma rose by 253 in the previous 4 weeks.
Sadly, CNN & many other policy influencers are still proudly claiming Johns Hopkins as their authoritative source for pandemic facts.
What is shocking and disappointing is that this discrepancy has been evident for many weeks or months. And no one at CNN, Johns Hopkins, or any other national entity is willing to acknowledge, much less fix; the fake news they publish.
The people, now more than ever; need to know the accurate truth. When health authorities are found to be giving inaccurate information, folks can die. When health information is necessary to save lives, people need to know they are getting truth. It's not the time to diminish the credibility of data. Yet that's what happens. the Oklahoma public health officials need to expose these lies and call out Johns Hopkins for their false and sloppy ways.
Texas has a similar, but less drastic percent discrepancy with Johns Hopkins. The death count is inflated by 1253 on the Johns Hopkins database, for all of Texas.
Minnesota's death count seems to have little discrepancy between what their state health officials report, and what Johns Hopkins lists. Our research shows only a difference of 97 for Minnesota.
