Multiple public officials in Colorado, meanwhile, told “Full Measure” host Sharyl Attkisson that they had personally observed death tallies that erred on the side of COVID, leading to death counts that were effectively misleading to the public.
Brenda Bock, the county coroner for Grand County, told Attkisson that in November she processed a murder-suicide case “and the very next day it showed up on the state website as COVID death.”
“And they were gunshot wounds,” she continued. “And I questioned that immediately because I had not even signed off the death certificates yet, and the state was already reporting them as COVID deaths.”
Looks like this story will be covered this morning on Full Measure:

It is astonishing that nearly two years after the arrival of COVID-19, the U.S. is still using misleading and manipulative data. Two studies, along with CDC breakthrough infection data, show that current death tracking overcounts the incidence by as much as 25%. It is time to limit the counts only to patients who died after suffering from severe COVID-19 symptoms. In an era of vaccine mandates and mandatory masking, our agencies owe Americans accurate data.
